  1. Still one of my favorite sports related movies, and I'm not even a hockey fan.
  2. More gimmicks and overreaction with rule changes that are not needed. Here is another thing to consider, as I understood from one article I read, the 4th & 15 play is an untimed down, you could score a TD on that play, slim chance and too far away for a Hail Mary to reach the EZ. But if you scored, then converted PAT/2P try, and then had to kickoff again you could keep scoring at will with just a few seconds left when scoring the first time.
  3. Ryan Leaf arrested on domestic battery charge

    Ding ding, we have a winner. It was the sale, and some guys who could not stand being asked to tone it down, so they took their balls and went elsewhere. PS Some of my family call me Steve-O, but pretty sure they're not talking about me.
  4. NFL player sues United Airlines

    How about bitch slapping her and knocking her out (if drunk and on drugs she may have not needed much to put her to sleep).
  5. Second-year wideouts

    But yet you didn't vote for Brown I went with Hardman, but honestly I'd not be too pleased with any of them.
  6. Dak Prescott offered five-year, $175 million deal

    Actually it was almost $5M (4.9) according to this, but still that contract he was offered is a huge upgrade, and probably more than he is worth. I'm not sure how much of the Cowboys success he's contributed to. Sure they have not had a losing season during his 4 years, but two of those were 8-8 and 9-7 and missed the playoffs. Their two playoff appearances didn't net much, losing to GB at home when they went 13-3 and winning one game before losing to Rams when they went 10-6.
  7. DEANDRE BAKER & QUINTON DUNBAR ACCUSED OF ARMED ROBBERY

    This sounds rather strange, the accusers who swore out statements with police, then talked to the attorneys for the accused and recant their stories? Is that how criminal proceedings usually work? It seems at least a bit unethical to me. Either way they lied to somebody, getting a conviction may be nearly impossible now, but that doesn't make Dunbar and Baker innocent.
  8. Joe Burrow 'waiting to see before signing Bengals contract

    Does anybody have a source like NFL CBA or something else that explains the terms of when a team has to pay the signing bonus? I cannot find a source that shows that and everything I've read (even business and salary cap type stories) mention it being a signing bonus "paid when you sign the contract" or "paid upfront". I know the salary cap hit can be spread out, but the payment is guaranteed and if they had years to pay it, the player could be owed money when they are released while under contract.
  9. Bye Weeks 2020

    Our playoffs don't start until week 14, so not a big deal. Could have a crucial game week 13 to make the playoffs, but it just seems more crucial because it is the last chance, any bye at some other time could have resulted in a similarly difficult situation.
  10. Roger Goodell gives up salary

    Go back and read your posts in this thread, you said it wasn't a noble gesture, he really didn't give up much, you and many others here just hate Goodell and would have ripped him regardless of what he did or gave up. I don't care whether you like Goodell or not, I just know that your views on him are tainted by your extreme hatred of him.
  11. Early Pre-season Predictions (Your Team)

    What thread, I cannot see those guys talking... Browns 9-7
  12. Bye Weeks 2020

    Because of no byes until week 5? From what I've heard the big contingency is starting late and shifting week 2 games to later in the season. Each week 2 matchup has those teams on bye at the same time. For example, week 2 CIN-CLE, both have week 9 bye, or NYG-CHI, both have bye in week 11. Maybe week 1 moves to where week 17, and the all division slate moves a week later, even then if they skip the off week for ProBowl they could finish on schedule. This is similar to what they did once before when the season start was in jeopardy.
  13. International games cancalled for 2020

    They don't hate gambling, but like the mob they want their cut.
  14. Earl Thomas Held At Gunpoint By Wife

    I love people who are clueless about guns handling guns and threatening others with them. It is what makes America Great. I've never owned a gun, have only fired a couple that belonged to my brother. One was a 9mm, which I believe carried a round in the chamber, and was warned about "even if the clip isn't in there." (I was in my 20s, and he was right there if I had questions.)
  15. Earl Thomas Held At Gunpoint By Wife

    Hmm good advice for your son, but not your son-in-law No, its a man's right (especially a rich athlete in their prime...
  16. Roger Goodell gives up salary

    Oh boy, really? He owes the players a large percentage of salary for what exactly? Every misstep?
  17. Roger Goodell gives up salary

    Not a surprising response, I know you still have issues with Goodell, your avatar reminds us all. You can be mad at him for his decisions, but you should also be mad at the owners for giving him the power. Do you know if Tom Benson voted for him or not? Would you have issue with Benson if he did? I see lots of bitching and whining because what he did isn't enough for a bunch of people who play a fantasy sport. Its the same I hear from many of the angry people in Cleveland area when LeBron does something "well he's rich, big deal that's like couch change." Yep, and you did what? is my usual response.
  18. Roger Goodell gives up salary

    Most people hate Goodell and blame him for everything they don't like about the NFL, instead of blaming the owners (including the for their favorite team) that has put him in power. I find it to be pretty childish and have pointed it out many times, to the criticism of many.
  19. Jaguars decline option for RB Leonard Fournette

    Maybe the curse of playing home games in London too often
  20. RIP Don Shula

    It could happen, but Shula started much younger, and also had success right away. Oh and didn't move back to a lower position after not doing too well in his first job. Fewer losing seasons also, and went from coach of one contending team to another. A guy fitting of the term legend. BB has been great, and has more SB titles, but he won't be the greatest.
  21. 2010s All Decade Team

    Shout out to Joe Thomas who was a unanimous selection, also to former Brown Alex Mack the only two on the list that played with the Browns.
  22. The NFL is planning for a full season with full stadiums

    One reason would be that not everybody has a supply of these gloves. And the more people want/need them, the harder they will be to find, just like masks that we're all expect to make on our own. Like Darin said wash or disinfect your hands when your environment changes, for me that is primarily when getting back into my car, and returning home. Also if you are using disposable gloves, please put them in the trash, don't leave them on the carts or in the parking lots. (I've heard that is becoming an issue in some places.) Not many grocery stores have trash cans in the lot.
  23. So what new thing are you doing?

    I had recently cut back some after an illness, especially week days (Mon-Thu) having maybe 2 total, as opposed to 2 most of those days. Weekends were not much different. Now I'm drinking more, 1-2 most days, and more on weekends.
  24. So what new thing are you doing?

    Still drinking more, but I don't have a problem yet (there's plenty more available to drink).
  25. The NFL is planning for a full season with full stadiums

    I'm hearing that in places where people are using gloves a lot when shopping that the store parking lot, and the carts in the return rack are littered with the gloves. I guess once they're done with them its somebody else's problem. Here they are recommending people wear a mask in public, I guess they just figure we all have them, or we're crafters whole with sew our own. I'm not sure what I'll do, I wasn't planning to use them until required or recommended, even then only when I go out somewhere like the store. Not for a short walk around the block or to the neighborhood park. I also think they provide a false sense of security, they are of most benefit in helping the wear prevent spreading the virus if they have. They don't do much to prevent the person wearing it from getting the virus. And since my situation is near isolation alone at home (weekly trip to the grocery store is about the only other time I am inside and near others. I noticed more people wearing masks this weekend, especially at the grocery store (maybe half) but also on the hiking trails (25-30%). PS I went for a motorcycle ride thru our parks, and also was at one that appeared overcrowded, but that was due to people parking on the access road, instead of trying to find a spot in a very large parking lot. As I left a park ranger was writing tickets, and another officer had the entrance blocked. I thanked them for trying to keep things in order. Oh they also took down the rims at the local basketball courts at the park, they were there late last week, but gone yesterday. Saturday was sunny and almost 70 here so everybody was out.
