The Andy Pettitte "just this one time and really it was to help the team" defense?

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!
How come their PEDs work better than the ones that the Bills take? Not fair.

A Reddit dude actually broke the Edelman story long before ESPN. He made an ominous comment today and now there's this:



Swell.

Portnoy is "reporting" it's trading Gronk.

With the Edelman PED suspension... just seems like it helps to have week one suspensions. Pats probably make playoffs again without him for 4 games and dont you want to hold him back to keep him healthy. Most importantly they get to keep an extra guy at cuts. So long as you can plan for it, id like to have about 10-15 guys on various staggered suspensions throughout the year.

I get more why the Pats would want to trade Gronk more than I do why anyone would want him (unless they were not giving up too much in return). And I'd be interested to see what the physical would be like before that goes through.

How is this encouraging that Andrew Luck is only making throws that someone with a poorly healed labrum could easily make?

Season ticket waiting list in Washington has gone from 200,000 to 0.

And regardless of whatever you might be told or believe, it'll happen in Green Bay one day as well, especially if they don't manage to luck into another once in a generation quarterback again.

Colin Cowturd needs to be fired.



I would've done something like "Well, Colin, how good of a teammate were you at ESPN when you mis-labeled Sean Taylor as a bad judgment guy after his murder? You yourself in the moment, upon reflection, had bad judgment in making that take but you didn't own up to it as a mistake. So you need to gain some self awareness because you look foolish."

The problem is all the "roasting Colin Cowherd" tweets are just giving him and Fox Sports what they want by feeding into his role as a provocateur, regardless of opinion quality.

I'll never understand anyone who dislikes someone, yet follows that person on twitter (say, Darren Rovell). I get it, you want to mock him, but following him and interacting with his tweets helps him.

To be fair it’s a bit different for Trump since statements from the president (in theory) affect everyone. Rovell is just a dude who tweets shit. Trump could tweet that we’re bombing Ottawa.

Pretty sure Rovell is the only person I have blocked on Twitter. It's always odd to me quoted tweet that is unavailable.

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.
Well, not a restraining order, but the NFLPA finally filed a grievance over the new anthem policy.

Hitting for the cycle. Pretty impressive. Hope the NFL breaks down the suspension for each offense (i.e. hitting a woman is 2 games, hitting a kid is 4 games and hitting a dog is 6 games, etc.)

It's ridiculous. The fact that he's on the Bills has me clinging to the word "accused." If he was on any of 30 other teams, I'd be screaming for an immediate lifetime ban.

So now it seems like it wasn't McCoy but someone who came in to get some specific things...that may or may not have been the things that McCoy wanted from her before? Doesn't really make McCoy look much better.

It’s a very short list of athletes for whom you could compile a video of 50 highlights where it looks like the other pro athletes he’s competing against look like little kids by comparison.

I have no idea what the Rams are doing. 5yr/80M for Cooks who hasn't played a down for them. The Gurley thing is fine if they waited until he played out his rookie deal which he still has 2yrs on. The Rams have $5M in cap space this year so the max they can give Donald this season is $11M which I imagine is quite a bit south of what he's looking for. They have space next year but not if they want to bring back Suh, Talib, and Peters. I'm starting to seriously wonder if they are going to try and trade him. I saw speculation that given his demands, the Rams would save money by not extending him so he stays on rookie deal then Kirk Cousinsing him for three years. That might appease the beancounters but I think he would probably sit out this year. Unless they have a deal structure in place and they're just ironing out details (which I doubt given available money), the Rams are screwing up the chance to lock up a true franchise all-time great.
