  1. Aside from the loss of a best buddy who was killed standing right next to him . . . 😪 And then getting shot in the butt to boot . . . I sincerely hope this incident doesn't taint his stock or hurt his career in any way. This appears to be a situation where he just happened to be in the wrong place at the right time. Our society is such that almost any degenerate anywhere anytime can get his hands on a gun and do something stupid or heartless.

    WRONG! None of this is important enough or real enough to be embarrassed over. But thanks for playing. Feel free, any of you, to have the last word. I'm done with this

    I don't care. Reality . . . what a concept.

    JPP Broke Neck in Car accident

    You guys really need to get a room . . . to the casual observer no such thing was obvious. And if reading between the lines is required perhaps you should just make youself clear to begin with. Sarcasm is often lost in this medium as well. I guess I'm just not as smart as youse guys are.

    It's called, 'Dark Humor'. Relax. Some people use it as a way of assuaging anxiety or dealing with the negative stress of a given situation. I'm sure we all wish JPP all the best of luck . . . but this situation REALLY has to suck for him.

    Bleacher Report: What happened in Green Bay

    Too tired to read it now but I'll try to come back to it later. Just based on what I already know of the situation and the people involved: this is what happens when a player becomes more important than the game or the team. And oh-by-the-way: Rodgers' family life has problems as well.
  8. At best it's called: A REACH. Something you bring up when you have nothing else to talk about on a 'slow news' day.

    I can understand the Capitalist Pigs who want to 'test the water' and see if there's a market for this . . . or not. But there is such a thing as 'saturation' and pro football may have finally reached that point. Whomever is the money-man of that operation either ran out of money or realized that the potential returns would require more time & investment than he was willing to make. Today's NFL and all it's followers wasn't created overnight. In fact it happened over a period of 50 years or so, not in one. Here's a 'thumb-nail' history of the NFL: Jump to search The National Football League (NFL) was founded in 1920 as the American Professional Football Association (APFA) with ten teams from four states, all of whom existed in some form as participants of regional leagues in their respective territories; it took on its current name in 1922. The NFL was the first professional football league to successfully establish a nationwide presence, after several decades of failed attempts. Only two teams currently in the NFL, the Decatur Staleys (now the Chicago Bears) and the Chicago Cardinals (now the Arizona Cardinals), are founding members.[1]The Green Bay Acme Packers, founded in 1919 (joined the NFL in 1921, now the Green Bay Packers) are the oldest NFL franchise within continuous operation in the same location. League membership gradually stabilized throughout the 1920s and 1930s as the league adopted progressively more formal organization. The first official championship game was held in 1933. The NFL stopped signing black players in 1927 but reintegrated in 1946 following World War II. Other changes followed after the war; the office of league President evolved into the more powerful Commissioner post, mirroring a similar move in Major League Baseball. Teams became more financially viable, the last team folding in 1952 and the league absorbing teams from the briefly more successful All-America Football Conference in 1950, two of which survive to the present day. By 1958, when that season's NFL championship game became known as "The Greatest Game Ever Played", the NFL was on its way to becoming one of the most popular sports leagues in the United States. The rival American Football League was founded in 1960. It was very successful, and forced a merger with the older NFL that resulted in a greatly expanded league and the creation of the Super Bowl, which has become the most-watched annual sporting event in the United States. The league continued to expand to its current size of 32 teams. A series of labor agreements during the 1990s and increasingly large television contracts have helped keep the league one of the most profitable in the U.S., and the only major league in the U.S. since 1990 to avoid a work stoppage that resulted in the loss of regular-season games.

    https://aaf.com/live/GkR2WgCT3P8yhlVLUJkrcj9zm6ae This week, we made the difficult decision to suspend all football operations for the Alliance of American Football. We understand the difficulty that this decision has caused for many people and for that we are very sorry. This is not the way we wanted it to end, but we are also committed to working on solutions for all outstanding issues to the best of our ability. Due to ongoing legal processes, we are unable to comment further or share details about the decision. We are grateful to our players, who delivered quality football and may now exercise their NFL-out clauses in our contract. We encourage them to continue pursuing their dreams and wish them the best. We are grateful to our fans, who have been true believers from the beginning, and to our world-class partners. And to the Alliance coaches and employees who devoted their valuable time and considerable talent to this venture, we are forever grateful.our players, who delivered quality football and may now exercise their NFL-out clauses in our contract.

    Pass interference OPI and DPI can now be challenged...

    Game over. Agree.

    Pass interference OPI and DPI can now be challenged...

    The solution to that is: make it a 10 - 15 yd. penalty not a 'spot foul' at the one. In our Super Bowl case a PI called on the Pats = game over with no time left on the clock. If they had called PI on the Eags then there'd have to be one more untimed down b/c the game can't end on a defensive foul.

    Giants fans... Talk about the Giants

    Then vincent_NJG Sez: I'm not fan of DG but people running around declaring that there's no plan whatsoever are shortsighted at best. I think it's mostly media types who say and do this sort of thing. It's what they do. Remember the dopes at the NY Post after Foles was Super Bowl MVP last year? Almost the very next day they were yelling, "The Jets should sign him . . . NOW!! No matter what it costs!!" And they even continued it a bit by implying that the Giants were in the mix for signing Foles this year. STUPID. I knew as long as Eli was a Giant Foles would never be signed by them. Aside from the cost factor (huge) There's no better 'bridge' QB on the planet than the one who's been there the last 15 years or so. Eli is in the last year of his contract anyways which makes me think the Gmen will try to make a QB deal this year so Eli can mentor him. UNLESS they've targeted someone they really like in next year's draft. But then they almost have to deliberately tank the season to be in position to draft him . . . or at least get close. Giants fans (fanned by the rabid NY media) can only tolerate so much losing before going ballistic so I don't know if option #2 is even an option . . . but I think not.
