  1. This may very well be my last post at this board. I’m tired of the sanctimonious crap. The initiators seem to be able to post relentlessly and precipitate some slight retaliation in responses, and the responders get blamed and banned. I’ve found a different spot where the FF knowledge is just as strong as it is here and there is tolerance for the human element and some personal passion and back-and -forth. I’m not sure what the board goal is here, unless it is to turn it into a dry info-only location. If that’s the case you’re going to lose a lot of valuable contributors who like me will tire quickly of the iron hand and completely uneven application of the intolerant rules. You want to see the end result - stop over at the Huddle FF forums and look at the desert of valuable contributor information that they have become. They used to have as strong or stronger board than here, or did you forget those days? You’ve forgotten what made you one of the most desirable FF sites on the internet. First the turn into being shills for the daily services and now this ham handed attempt to stop “even 1%” of anything other than football information in any post. It’s your business and your prerogative to run it any way you please, obviously. Just be careful that you may get what you wish for. My advice would be that you may want to revisit what got you where you are right now, but I have a feeling it will fall on deaf ears. But if you’re banning guys like Doc for such a slight addition to a response while letting others continue to agitate continually from the lead position or to rigidly enforce your recent zero tolerance policy, you’re going to lose some very valuable resources - who by the way provide tremendous insight and knowledge and don’t ask for a dime in consideration and just want a chance to engage socially with others like themselves as the cost to FBGs for that resource. With that, adios. It was great fun and a tremendous resource and social community - while it was fun. Now? Not so much one and likely soon not so much the others.
  2. https://forums.footballguys.com/forum/topic/775788-late-rookie-discussion/?tab=comments#comment-21905189 ETA - sorry, that takes you to one of my posts instead of to the top. You’ll need to scroll up to the start
  3. Bad Actor (or something similar). He had a pretty extensive and serious criminal history as a kid, which is part of the reason he’s relatively so old compared to his NFL experience.
  4. The player comps I’m seeing for him are Seth Roberts and Ricardo Louis. Those are guys who also had FF proponents and haven’t done a whole lot to justify that enthusiasm. Worth a look here: https://www.google.com/amp/s/247sports.com/college/kansas-state/Article/PFF-breaks-down-the-choices-of-NFL-Draft-hopefuls-Byron-Pringle-DJ-Reed-113071979/Amp/
  5. Facts don’t matter. Only the chance to be incredibly superior, insulting and condescending is important to him.
  6. You’re the one adoring the MLB system. Yeah, premier sports academies for the chosen ones. What could possibly go wrong there? Well, at least there’s the positive out of your posts that almost everyone here isn’t nearly as bitter as you. It’s just a shame they don’t have your blazing insight or brilliant intellect. I guess that at least partly has brought on such bitterness. I hope your day gets better.
  7. Yeah. Guys ought to be telling stories of how they skipped college completely and signed a small contract (relatively) with a major league team, spent years in the minors living on a shoestring, and eventually ended up out of the sport closer to 30 than 20 with absolutely no education or training to fall back on to make it for the next 5 to 6 decades of their life. I guess that’s your vision of the American dream. At least football players are given the opportunity to get a higher education and a higher quality life beyond football if they choose to take advantage of it. The overwhelming percentage of college football players don’t earn their living after college playing football.
  8. You clearly did not read closely enough. You really ought to try it again more carefully.
  9. I think you need to research American Needle Inc v NFL
  10. The Sherman Act has been around since 1890. The NFL has been around since 1920. In all that time, apparently no one has been able to make a good argument and stick the NFL with violating the Sherman Act. And there have been numerous leagues that have attempted to start up, including one very notable league that has stuck and continues to play professional football successfully north of the border. But if you can pull it off and make that good argument so that it survives the judicial system and renders a verdict against the NFL, I’d figure you’d be enriching yourself by outrageous amounts doing so rather than posting here.
  11. I’m pulling for Murray, but we’re talking about a HC who never coached in the NFL before and had a losing record in college, in which his experience also was not extensive, coaching a rookie QB and installing a completely different system that the vets will also have to get used to. Then there is the D, which is lacking more than a bit. If people are expecting a CLE/Kitchens type of turnaround - AZ is a lot further from being in a position to do so and has an entire team including coaches who are going to be learning a new O and the NFL by being thrown into the fire. This has every bit as good a chance of blowing up into a bonfire as it does of moving the franchise forward significantly.
  12. Saquon lite? Really? What does he have in common with Barkley - I mean, beside being a running back?
  13. Okay. Have it your way. I’m done (Joe and/or mods - no need to remind to get back to football). We really do need TC to start...
