  1. Me neither. I mean, take a look at the Politics forum if you want confirmation that there are a ton of old white dudes clogging the boards. I do wonder what happens to FFL in the next decade or two. Will it move to a wildly different type of format than what many of us started using 10-20 years ago? Will it just die off? The demographics trends don't look promising.
  2. Cole Beasley would like Frank Clark to hold his beer...
  3. Yeah if we're counting WORLDWIDE and not just USA, then it's for sure one of those Maradona highlights (which are from the same game!): https://d219s82bmpe0qh.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/02064737/diego-maradona-argentina-england_k52u3rof72xh12v0j22rhoxv3.jpg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wVho3I0NtU
  4. The only question is whether he gets in to the HOF on the first ballot, or has to wait a bit longer.
  5. America’s Team gave up Year 2021 Draft Pick 1.01 Yo Couch gave up Moore, D.J. CAR WR; Year 2021 Draft Pick 1.06
  6. Akers is on track to be the playoff hero for a lot of teams. Long term he seems like a worthy RB2 or Flex.
  7. I totally forgot there was a Politics forum, and I was saddened to show up today and read that so many people here were/are willing to entertain nutty conspiracy theories about voter fraud. Remind me what evidence Trump managed to dig up during the past 4 years to prove the so-called "massive fraud" he alleged during the 2016 election.
  8. It was a long and winding road to get there, but you were essentially correct. 😆
  9. Good news for you: Texans just fired said blowing OC. http://www.rotoworld.com/headlines/nfl/353575/texans-fire-offensive-coordinator-g-godsey?ls=roto:FA:topheadlines
  10. Michael Floyd may be under-rated . . . in celebrity dead pools: http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/6759/michael-floyd
  11. Not sure about quotas, but expanding Rooney to cover lower positions like OC/DC and some key positional coaches would be good. I've never been clear how guys would make good head coaches if they don't already have their feet in the door and manage to develop experience at mid- and senior-level roles. And I think it's getting a foot in the door and succeeding with one's initial shot that is what will ensure that more diverse head coaches appear in the future. The Rooney Rule needs to aim a bit lower to hit its higher target.
  12. I probably wouldn't say this in 99% of instances, but a long timeout in jail might be the best thing for him at this point.
  13. Woodhead seems like he's gonna continue his improbable run of PPR fantasy relevance into his 40s.
  14. I'd love to see a $-per-TD breakdown or something like that for Bradford, and then compare that figure against some of the less-regarded QBs of the league. I am not sure whether there is anyone else in the NFL who has consistently been paid so much to deliver so little.
  15. The big questions are: Has he been paying for all the weed on credit? And what happens when his dealer sees that he's not ever going to get another fat NFL contract and finally comes to collect? I hope he didn't quit his day-job selling cars. But I have to wonder why a car dealer doesn't even care about all the missed drug tests. Or did they give him the boot long ago and I didn't read about it?
  16. Kaepernick's enormous hat budget can take him twice as far in the Midwest.
  17. Johnny's new name could be LT Lite. This is OK as long as the LT is supposed to stand for "Lesser Talent".
  18. Hate to be a tool and quote myself but that was quicker than I thought: The NFL is instituting a "Rooney Rule" mandating teams interview women for executive positions. "We believe in diversity," commissioner Roger Goodell said Thursday. There are vanishingly few women in executive positions around the NFL, though the same is true for every major American sport. It's an admirable initiative from a league that's made a habit of bungling just about everything else.I hadn't seen or heard about women's groups making executive-level opportunities a major issue for the NFL. This seems like the NFL getting ahead of the curve for a change. I think this is a good initiative.
  19. I'm going opposite. We franchise him and try to trade him to Houston, Denver or Cleveland. His agent reportedly asked for $25mil per year. Yea good luck with that. The money saved and potential draft pick will do a lot more good than him being here in the long run.I agree we don't sign him to a long-term big money contract. But unless somebody gives us a great offer, I think we are better off having him for one franchise year. Remember that the team trading for him will probably want to sign him to a long term deal, so they are going to have to come to agreement before they trade for him. For the same reasons we don't want to sign him to a big long-term deal, they probably wouldn't want to as well. I think for 2016, even if we draft our future QB, we are better off with Bradford playing for us this year. I would hate to see him play one rusty year for us, and then go somewhere else and have his breakout year for another team, when we could at least have him for one more year. That's part of the mental trap that has made Bradford hugely rich despite either sitting on the bench or rehabbing for the majority of his NFL career.
  20. Off-field incidents don't affect on-field games/performances. If I want to see a good football game, I just want to see the most skilled players out there in the game. Whether a player kicks his dog or has 400 arrests or hasn't showered in 4 years doesn't have a substantial impact on his on-field performance, which is the primary focus of our attention as fans. I would rather know nothing about players' personal lives, because unless it bleeds over into their performance and negatively affects the games, it's fundamentally irrelevant to us as sports fans.
