Not sure if the object of the Amazon All Or Nothing season with Dallas was supposed to make Jerry Jones look like as much of a douche as possible but if so mission accomplished.

So that anthem resolution was a league dictated thing and not voted on. Yet the league said it was unanimous, to make it seem so, so great. Any question as to where they got that kind of idea?

Themselves.

It's been reported that Jed York and Mark Davis (I think) abstained from voting (can't piss off the other owners with a "no" vote, even in an unofficial vote) and the Jets CEO said they would never fine a player for protesting during the national anthem. Certainly doesn't seem "unanimous".

I expect a restraining order request from the NFLPA before the season starts.

If the NFL (owners) ever slowed themselves down and thought, "Let's try to only make 98% of the possible money instead of 100% of the possible money", they'd probably do better because they wouldn't be tripping over their own dicks at every possible turn.

They just got a $2 billion dollar deal from Verizon for streaming, so they can probably risk upsetting a sliver of their fanbase in the name of coming off like human beings. Besides, if season ticket holders are going to return their tickets and people are going to not watch (very little proof this will happen over the last year) because silent protest is allowed, there's a good chance other people are going to buy tickets or watch the games... or the reported 133,000-person waiting list to get Packers' season tickets is a work of fiction.
Stick this in your trophy case.

Apparently they didn't even have a real vote. Just asked a few what they thought and ran with it.

They've also managed to somehow royally piss off both liberals and conservatives, so kudos on bringing America together I guess.

Hmmm, well since it is done by a contestant from Inkmaster, I'd venture that she's at least $175-$200 an hour.

And with the amount of detail and color on the arm (plus the note that it was over 5 years), I'd say it would be at least 50 hours.

Plus tip.

So...possibly $10 grand, maybe more.

They should just say they couldn't make it because they're all suffering from bone spurs.

I thought it would take 200 years for somebody to make the Eagles sympathetic, but the Patriots & Trump managed to do it in less than a year.

POLICY STATEMENT

The 32 member clubs of the National Football League have reaffirmed their strong commitment to work alongside our players to strengthen our communities and advance social justice. The unique platform that we have created is unprecedented in its scope, and will provide extraordinary resources in support of programs to promote positive social change in our communities.

The membership also strongly believes that:

1. All team and league personnel shall speak during media interviews.

2. The Game Operations Manual will be revised to remove the requirement that all players be in the locker room while the media is conducting interviews.

3. Personnel who choose not to conduct verbal interviews may stay in the newly established "No Interview Rooms" (in silence, without any electronics) until the media has completed their interviews.

4. A club will be fined by the League if its personnel are in the locker room and attempt to use signage or any other written words rather than speaking during their media interviews.

5. Each club may develop its own work rules, consistent with the above principles, regarding its personnel who do not speak out loud during their media interviews.

6. The Commissioner will impose appropriate discipline on league personnel who do not speak out loud during their media interviews.​

I can’t tell without googling whether Delaware was cracking wise or that was a real statement.

Meh, probably just got them for his wife.


In reality, probably helped him recover from the ACL faster, gives him 4 weeks without wear and tear, and gives the team an extra roster spot.

I am shocked, SHOCKED I TELL YOU, that more NFL players don't get busted for PEDs because I'd think there are more that do it than don't.

He's probably done them before. Undersized dude, late round pick, blah, blah. I just think that majority of the dudes in the NFL are juicing or have juiced. Especially the guys at either end of their career and/or coming back from injury.

You know why they take PED's? Because they work!
