  1. Cole Beasley seems willing to go down with the ship to defend his stance.  I'd be very surprised at this point if he is on the Bills - or any team - week 1.  Feeling dumb to have several shares of him in best ball.

    Cole Beasley  @Bease11

    I get it. But I’m not sacrificing something I believe in for wins and money. I want to win as much as anybody. But I’m not gonna change who I am to accomplish that. There are a ton of players who are with me but can’t speak out because of their situation within the organization.

    So what tier do we slot him in? Mixon/Gibson-ish, Carson/Montgomery-ish, or Gaskin/Sanders-ish? Higher? Lower?

    Gaskin/Sander-ish area sounds right at the moment. A lot depends on who they add.

    In an Underdog best ball draft I am currently in (1 qb, 1/2 ppr) Henderson went in the 6th, after Etienne and Gaskin and before Sermon.  He is the RB 2 for his team.

  3. I'm guessing for every person who swears off Espys and Sportscenter because Bruce Jenner was given the humanitarian (or whatever) award for becoming a female named Caitlynn, there is a person who will watch more for the same reason.

    The world is becoming more partisan, unfortunately.  This thread, for instance.

    The one thing we can ALL agree on is that Skip Bayless should shut up, forever, please God.

    So why does the wrestling suck so bad?

    WWE stories are terrible.  AEW is unwatchable. There is maybe 20 minutes per month that is worth watching highlights on twitter.  Gross.  I'd lean AEW except what I have seen is spots-n-botches.  The industry SUCKS these days.

    Took Cena coming back (REALLY the crowd and Reigns' response) to get me psyched.  44 year old dude...Industry sucks.

    Agree with everything you said.

    AEW has some decent talent. But its surrounded by hours and hours and hours of gymnastic choreographed spot fests full of blown fake as #### looking spots. 

    Young Bucks will forever be to me the worst thing that's EVER happened to pro wrestling. They aren't alone these days with cos play wrestler phony garbage but they've been at it the longest.

    If Punk comes back, I'll see it in this thread or on twitter and I'll mark out for a few minutes, like I did for Cena the other night.  And then I'll go back to waiting for the next highlight.

    I'll be honest, I'm not sure if I pay him what he's going to ask for. The roster is already getting bloated and they need to concentrate on the younger talent if they want to grow the brand.

    No. Turned out after all that the new relay was actually bad. Yes, it’s something I suggested to the tech hours ago since it was the only thing different in the equation. 
     

    AC is back on after once again bypassing a bad relay. Looking forward to San Diego and Portland next week. Still planning on beers with the Portland crew. 

    Looking forward to your report, for real.

    Depends on the depth of the league. All of mine are idp...I already have him stashed in a 55 man. I did a search for him in a 63 back in spring and he was already on a roster. I looked for him in one 41 after yesterday's news and he was already on a roster there too. He was available in the other 40 though. I considered cutting Chris Evans or Jaret Patterson for him, but ultimately they're all in very similar situations. Young RB's with a path to a RB2 job, but hurdles in the way to get there. I know more about those 2 than Jones, so I didn't put a claim in.

    That's my long winded way of saying I think he belongs in the same tier as those types of young backup RB's. What's that mean from a FAAB perspective? Depends if those types are already on rosters.

    Good lord.

    Just traded for him a few days ago.  
     

    gave Hunt and Mike Evans

    got Akers and Corey Davis

     

    Thought this would put my team over the top as I was in the semis last season. 
    oh well…..

    Sorry bro.  I drafted him  in not one but TWO guillotine leagues recently.   I was able to secure Henderson in one, "just in case", but seems likely I'll be cut early in both.

    I mean you've seen PGA players with the share of leads of tournaments get kicked out for CV +.  Losing million+.  

    This is gonna be a ####show.  Maybe it talks a few more into actually getting shots.

    If they’re not, then it was a really bad gamble on their part that I imagine they’ll regret the rest of their lives.

    Sooooooooo stupid

    To be fair, vaccinated people are still catching covid, so if you keep insisting on testing vaccinated people you're going to get some positives even if they have no symptoms. With Japan's struggles I get not going even if you are asymptomatic, but there's no way of knowing if they were vaxxed or not.

    What Tom said.

    The best part is that he has been gone for 18 months, and it hit all the marks of his entrance like he didn't miss a day. Guy is 44 years old and runs to the ring, slides in, pops up and stares down Reigns. Again, silly, but I popped big time in my seat.

    Reigns vs Cena, Edge vs Rollins, Lashey vs Brock, Becky vs Bianca at Summerslam. Yeah, sign me up.

    Just saw the clip on twitter.  Reigns look of "WTF?" when the music hit is what did it for me.

    I'm an engineer.  I embrace the data and the analytics.  Baseball generates so much situational data, teams would be a fool not to look at it, use it, adapt to it, etc.   

    But it makes MLB painful to watch.  Every other batter hits into the shift. Everything is 3 true outcomes now.

    The three true outcomes is such a radical concept that I'm not sure exactly how much it's being embraced. It seems like it is, but a walk, K, or home run probably happens how much of the time? Even today?

    Perhaps the whole K element has increased drastically. I don't know. Part of why I don't watch anymore, though I don't really mind strike outs. At all. But they're not very democratic.

    Not often enough, imo.  Walks are boring, but K's and homers are fun.  What isn't fun is the constant DEEELLLAAAYYYY you mentioned earlier, nor is a ground ball pulled to one of 5 guys who are sitting on 20% of the field of play waiting for that ground ball and the batter being thrown out at first by the 2nd baseman who is 200 feet from the plate in right-center.  

    The math works as far as winning games.  It does NOT work as far as making the game enjoyable to watch.
