  1. Mahomes agree to a 10-year extension.

    I am no contract maven but it seems like he is guaranteed 140 million which seems to me to be a pretty good deal. That's just over 3 years at what his market rate likely is. Technically this is the largest contract ever in US sports anyway although I found this. Imagine knowing you will get almost half a billion dollars when you sign. "Mike Trout had previously held that distinction when he signed a 12-year, $426.5 million contract with the Los Angeles Angels in March 2019. Trout's contract is fully guaranteed, however."

    Everyone hoping his patella dislocation doesn't keep happening. Then again Mahomes could probably throw with one leg but nobody wants to see him try

    Signing the most expensive player in football to a 10-year contract... That's going to be a big one
  4. Washington ????????

    My point was all these nicknames are not created equal. "Redskins" is pretty indefensible, it is basically a slur. I am not a fan of the generic "Indians" much either, but that's me. Fighting Sioux was more contentious. Of the 2 Sioux tribes in ND, one actually sued to force them to keep the name. Clearly that's not quite the same. Some see it as a point of pride, a positive connotation, others as a negative. But when there is that much controversy, it is best to just get rid of the name. On the other side you have Seminoles. And the Seminole tribe gave their assent to the usage of the name. So I am not sure if all these should be judged equally.

    I wasn't including "Redskins" with that. If you read what I wrote again, I specifically said Redskin was a different category to me. I am talking about some of the other team names.

    Yeah it will be interesting to to see how all these sports recover. I still see a lot of enthusiasm for football, but that might be skewed by how I spend my time and what I read. As far as the name change goes I generally agree with Michael Redd. The Redskins name is done. I'm surprised it's lasted as long as it has but now that the advertisers are pulling out it's a foregone conclusion. I don't have a strong opinion about the other names. I have to say I kind of liked the North Dakota Fighting Sioux. They had a great logo. And I think there was a fair amount of Sioux who liked the name. But then there's some who don't. So I'm not going to comment on it more they can decide what they need to do. I mean we do have the Celtics, Fighting Irish, Vikings. I don't know that it necessarily has to be derogatory. But obviously our treatment of the Native Americans was pretty horrible

  8. CLE TEs

    Says they picked up his 6.2 million 5th year extension recently which surprised me after signing Hooper and drafting a 4th round TE.
  9. NFL cuts preseason down to two games

    Should have done this anyway
  10. Cam Newton to the Patriots

    I couldn't believe it when i saw the details on the deal. It is an absolute steal. Got him for pennies relatively.
  11. Cam Newton to the Patriots

    This makes the season more interesting and for that I am glad. It will be interesting how Newton fares under BB beyond the physical questions that are still there for now, re: arm strength/accuracy/mobility. Pretty nice deal by Belichick too with an incentive laden deal so he can't even really lose on it.
  12. Ranking top 10 RBs for 2020 NFL season

    I can believe that. It seems his only legit competition is Boston scott who did ok towards the end of the season. But still you would think there would be a lot of opportunity. Same with Drake. I don't know if they are the most talented in the top 10 but they have some of the best opportunity
  13. Hall of fame game cancelled

    Well hopefully I am wrong and things settle down enough we can get some good football. I could use the diversion and I think everybody could
  14. Hall of fame game cancelled

    Probably a good plan tbh. I don't know how much it costs on DTV, but my parents have DTV and their package is already expensive. It just feels it is going to be nip and tuck this whole season and watching half assed football even if played doesn't sound exciting. I still am going to watch if they have it though.
  15. Deebo Samuels broken foot

    This is the conversation at the bar thread, we talk about whatever lol
