  1. By video, Williamson appears to have a mild MCL sprain. I do not anticipate a major knee ligament tear such as an ACL. (Those who are used to my video injury analysis in football know I do not purport this to be a diagnosis, as I am not treating or examining Williamson. It is an injury analysis by a former long-time NFL team doctor, much the same way a legal analyst gives an opinion on the Colin Kaepernick collusion settlement even though he was not involved in the case.) I expect a mild low grade MCL sprain. Williamson will likely miss some time, but I expect him back before the ACC tournament and certainly before March Madness begins. https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/sports/sd-sp-pfd-zion-williamson-knnba-0220ee-injury-shoe-duke-north-carolina-20190220-story.html I know some elite NCAA football players have had large insurance policies in case of devastating injury. I wonder if Zion has anything like that.

    His name is spelled Belichick. The NFL changed the rules in 2016 so "the team trying to lie about it seems like similar things to what Belichick used to do when abusing the Probable or Questionable tag a few years back" is not a good example because teams are not allowed to do that anymore. The great thing now about the Anderson news is if Goodell fines the Rams we know that Gurley was truly injured and their team maliciously hid the news. If he doesn't, all the posts about an injury have been a bunch of unsubstantiated excuses.

    Most reasonable people will make the torturous sacrifice of standing for a two minute song to get paid millions of dollars.

    NFL teams have approximately 29 extra roster spots to use. I'd love your list of reserve players that had a more meaningful impact this past season than any two of those three guys. The Patriots have been to the SB eight times in the past 17 seasons. The point of your roster acquisitions is to win the SB and I can't recall the last time (if ever) that organization made paying a player as replaceable as a RB their priority. The drop off in production from overuse and age is brutal for NFL RBs. Another way to look at that is the wear and tear on an individual player is reduced by 1/3 and they can be fresh late in the season when it matters. It doesn't matter how talented a RB is if their body is broken down from 300+ carries (and tackles).
  6. Thought-provoking article 🤔 https://www.miaminewtimes.com/news/colin-kaepernick-sold-out-blacks-in-nfl-lawsuit-by-hiring-white-lawyers-like-mark-geragos-11090875 Colin Kaepernick Sold Out Black People by Hiring All-White Lawyers It’s a travesty that Colin Kaepernick turned to an all-white legal team to plead his grievance case against the NFL and the 32 team owners. Over the weekend, the controversial quarterback wore a massive grin and a Malcolm X T-shirt after cutting a deal that will pay him between $50 and $80 million to end a lawsuit that claimed he was blackballed by the NFL. In a photo after the announcement, he was flanked by his three lawyers, including celebrity attorney Mark Geragos. Kaepernick became a household name for leading the player protests against police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem before NFL games. He’s used the controversy to portray himself as a fighter against systemic racism in America. Yet when it came to making his legal argument, Kaepernick didn’t retain an African-American lawyer even though there are plenty equal to Geragos if not better. The former 49ers quarterback could have hired Willie Gary, a famous attorney from Stuart, Florida, whose nickname is the “giant killer” because of the high-profile verdicts and settlements he’s squeezed from some of the biggest corporations in the nation. In 2000, Gary won a $240 million jury verdict against the Walt Disney Corporation on behalf of a client who alleged the entertainment giant stole their idea for a sports theme park. A year later, Gary secured a $139.6 million verdict against Anheuser-Busch. And in 2014, Gary hit the mother lode when a jury forced R.J. Reynolds to pay $23.6 billion in punitive damages to the widow of a smoker who died from lung cancer. Or Kaepernick could have retained Benjamin Crump, the Tallahassee lawyer and modern-day social justice warrior. Crump has represented the families of Trayvon Martin, the Miami Gardens teen murdered by George Zimmerman; and Martin Lee Anderson, who died in a Florida youth detention center after guards beat him in 2006. Fighting systemic racism is not just about protesting police when they violate black people’s rights. It’s about getting banks to stop discriminating against black people who want to start a small business but can’t get a loan. It’s about standing up for African-American employees who get passed over for job promotions even though they are more qualified and have worked for more years at a company than the white coworker who gets the higher-paying position. Kaepernick could have sent a message to black parents and kids who want to become lawyers. But Kaepernick showed us that a black attorney is not worthy to fight on his behalf. And then he had the gall to wear a Malcolm X shirt and pose with three rich white dudes, something the civil rights leader would never have done. Instead of fighting oppression, Kaepernick cementing its legacy by reminding black people they can’t win without the white man’s help.

    Most employers aren't paying people millions of dollars to play a kid's game. Comparison is completely pointless.

    James White had more receptions than Kamara and a higher ypc than McCaffrey. His cap hit is $4.5m next year. Patriots are paying White, Burkhead and Michel less than $10m next year. Any team that pays a lot for a RB is stupid. The true value for RBs should be defined by the one team that has had unparalleled success for two decades.

    Not necessarily. I tend to believe the player's coach and player himself over the team's other RB. Why wouldn't they admit to Gurley's injury, but be okay that Anderson released that private information? That contradicts the earlier excuse from Gurley supporters that they couldn't admit an injury now because of possible fines from the NFL (if Goodell doesn't fine the Rams now we know Anderson is lying)

    Bell's averages in 2017 were his lowest since his rookie season (nearly a yard less since his peak) and now there are questions about what he did all of 2018. Any team that signs this guy for the money he is demanding will be making a massive mistake.

    Except when you have 100 posts gloating about Kaepernick's settlement "victory" where there isn't a single piece of factual public information in existence.

    Two derivations of speculate. Thanks for confirming I've been right all this time.

    The argument from the Gurley supporters before was that the Rams didn't want to disclose an "injury" because they would be fined. Now that Anderson has "confirmed" Gurley's "injury", this should be confirmed by Goodell with fines like he did this year with Miami and Oakland.
