  1. Not lifting weights but went from 270 in late June to just under 240 last I checked. Walking about 45-60 minutes(2.5-3.5 miles) almost every day. Bad thing is I broke a toe at a pool party last weekend, have not been able to walk as much this week.

    I cut alcohol, that was tough at first but made the weight drop a lot easier. I eat whenever I'm hungry and I increased fruits and vegetables a lot. Cut sugar out unless its fruit, I eat a lot of fruit and smoothies, sugar cravings dropped almost completely.

    Hummus and carrots has become the midnight toker snack. Co-workers are the worst, constantly shoving crap at you all day no matter how many times you say no thank you, I'm good, you enjoy it, they never stop celebrating birthdays except mine.


  2. CFA fries are the worst thing on their menu IMO. Usually limp and cold.

    Breakfast is where it's at there.

    Seriously? I've never had a waffle fry at CFA that wasn't piping hot. Don't you eat in one of the pews inside? And even if I did, a simple "Hey this isn't quite right" and suddenly 6 alter boys, 4 nuns and 2 clergyman come running out to assist.


  3. Somebody about 100 pages back called this exactly as it went down. Basically, he goes easy on Rice and goes hard on Gordon, knowing there will be a backlash and planning all along to come out with this hardened stance on domestic violence afterwards to cover his butt and come out of it all smelling like a rat....I mean...rose. What a sleazy, slimy little bastard.

    You should come by my office and we can discuss this.


  4. Just because Gordon does not have much chance of winning does not automatically mean there is no incentive to go to court. As already mentioned, if he gets a TRO and can get 6 games in before having to serve his yearlong suspension, then he could accrue a year of service time.

    Another option is he gets a TRO and then starts making his case not through the courts but through the media. If Gordon started mouthing off about the testing policies, the rules, the light suspensions for batterers and abusers, etc. on a regular basis as his case was heard, the NFL would have an incentive to negotiate a reduced sentence.

    If Gordon were to continue to shoot his mouth off and tarnish the NFL's brand, even if the league would ultimately win their court case 100%, they still might be inclined to reduce the suspension just to shut Gordon up. Once the games count for something, I wonder how long the league would want Gordon as the top story on Sports Center over Manning's 6 TD game or Charles 200 yards rushing.

    I don't know if a judge could issue a gag order to a player not allowing him to provide an opinion in a public forum or not. That one is out of my league in terms of legal knowledge. If a reporter asked him a question and he answered and it made out to the universe, is that on Gordon or the reporter at that point?

    I am not suggesting that Gordon will try any of these things, only that it seems like he can still maneuver his way around some if he wanted to try to.

    :lmao: You're a riot with these little jabs. Are you kidding? Is the NFL worth more than Disney? I'm not sure but the NFL will make life miserable for ESPN and that's why the majority of the time ESPN has their nose stuck up the NFL's sunshine box.


  5. I started thinking about all that college football and the NFL and so I called the internet warlord known as ATT U-Verse and for just an extra $100 a month I can get the sports package and cable with no contract or extension. That's gonna cost about $500 for the NFL season.

    Now I also was reading that you can get NFL Ticket thru Apple for like $250 or less, anyone know much about it?

    Thanks


  6. As awful as the Incognito/Martin saga was, make no mistake that Miami has one of the worst HC in the NFL. Nobody survives what he did last year and not even take a smidge of the blame, incredible how the owner runs things down there.

    It wouldn't shock me if the Bucs are smart enough to jump on him, sign him, they got lots of vets or leaders on that team that will crush Incognito if he were to get out of line and I doubt he would. Truth is he was doing great in Miami until that situation happened. Scratch that, he was a jerk to a female at a golf event but we really didn't hear much about that until the other story caught fire.

    Great news for the skill position players who I was already liking. Bucs are going to surprise a few people. McCoy/Lovie, Sapp/Dungy, let's start there but the similarities including a journeyman QB are pretty startling. Should shock no one that Lovie Smith is running the Tony Dungy playbook for putting a team together, he's done it before. If anyone can take Rex Grossman into a Super Bowl as a starter, Josh McCown should be an easy return for Lovie :)


  7. Uniforms are terrible, no defense needed. I was watching the game at a party last night and even the chicks were making a stink about them. They are butt ugly, period. Look like something from the old Euro League and since the owners also own Manchester United, maybe they got the idea abroad.

    Were the chicks at the party butt ugly too?

    Really the only factor that's important. I would say many were not up to FBG code, perhaps a couple 7s lurking about, 1 yoga instructor, mostly friends dressed casual.

    Is this actually the Bucs thread and not the uniform thread?

    I think they are set for a great season. #2 in the division behind the Saints, possible wildcard if things go right. I'm worried about the OL with some big losses but then again they weren't playing that well so maybe some fresh faces will be good.


  8. I would imagine the defense team and NFL presented evidence on that kind of stuff though if it was pertinent. And digesting it all, if so, could be one explanation for the delay in a ruling.

    Hey Greg, cut this down for space, nice post. SO having shared all that info, do you feel Gordon is gonna receive a 16 game suspension?


  9. My apologies as I am sure someone has likely spoken about this. It's hard to see the NFL suspending a player for the season smoking 2nd hand marijauna and then allowing only a 2 game suspension for Ray Rice beating the hell out of his fiancé all on videotape for the World to see.

    That has to be what is taking Henderson so long on this. Well there's that and then possibly never being hired by the NFL again if he messes this up, lot of pressure from all sides as we wait for the suspension to be handed down. It seems many feel it is all or nothing, a full season or nothing.

    So while I cannot see the NFL wanting his suspension to be as long or longer than beating a woman, I also cannot fathom a player who entered the league with these type of problems already, just can't see him getting no suspension.

    I believe a 4-8 game suspension would have been handed down already if Henderson were allowed to do so but because of the way the wording is set on this, we go back to 16 games or none.

    What a mess.

    Henderson is an independent arbitrator, why would he care about Ray Rice?

    Because Roger Goodell does and the Shield matters here. If Henderson comes back and says 16 game suspension, might not sit well with female fans. Henderson might have ruled immediately, perhaps Goodell is sitting on it and figuring out what is best.

    There are bigger things going on besides us drafting at the 10 hole is all I'm saying. I understand your point though.

  11. 3/4 oz, I think his days in Pittsburgh are numbered, they don't fool around with off field stuff. I will not be surprised if Pittsburgh trades for a RB and releases Bell. This isn't Mid March and nothing is happening and he's arrested in Podunk, it's 2 weeks before the season and this guy is not thinking very clearly. Middle of training camp is not a good time to be caught doing this. Pitt usually does the right thing,

    Sick trolling dude.

    But yea, they're not releasing or trading one of the best on-the-field rookies last year who is locked up for another three years on an insanely cheap rookie contract over a bag of weed. Give me a break, dude.

    Your words and that's exactly why they don't have to put up with this. I'll take the sick trolling as a compliment, I certainly am not trying to incite a riot and I expect the Steelers to suspend him without much Goodell intervention. I could be totally wrong but they have let plenty go over the years who don't walk the company line. We'll see what happens.


  12. This kid has been a baller since his days at FIU. He has the jets and he makes plays. He is a perfect WR3 if you go top heavy that way, likely gonna have weeks like 120/2TD, next week 4/42, next week you get 110/TD, he is a little up n down but those weeks he hits, he hits for distance.


  13. Let's just go over the list and correct me where I'm wrong.

    -Already on the substance abuse policy/plan even before he was drafted.

    -Missed a year in college.

    -Has been pulled over with marijauna in the car

    -Failed the NFL drug test however you want to slice it.

    16 game season? less than 5%

    14 game season? less than 10%

    10-12 game season? 35%

    8 game season or less? 50%
