  1. And you're mis-characterizing my comments. I did not suggest that Maria Taylor was given a job because she is black. (Unlike Robinson, who seemingly was.) I am saying there should be nothing wrong with speculating that diversity was a factor that contributed to her promotion. And that perhaps some people should relax when this speculation is given a voice, especially considering the existence of affirmative action and diversity hiring policies.
  2. But isn't Maria Taylor a hypocrite too? Complaining when a coworker suggests that diversity played a part in her ascension, but also telling ESPN execs that they need to add more black faces?
  3. Sorry not sorry to be so un-woke, but I have an issue with what you're suggesting. Frankly I find it very annoying when POC express such outrage because someone dared to suggest that intentional diversity played a part in their hire/promotion, all while shamelessly exploiting policies that were specifically designed to ensure that this happens. If you're going to reap the benefit, then you should own it. I find your indignation especially ironic as it pertains to Maria Taylor. She criticized management at ESPN for a lack of diversity in their Women's NCAA basketball coverage. As a result, LaChina Robinson was added to the broadcast team. So Robinson got the job largely because she is black, but God forbid anyone mention this out loud.
  4. I'm enjoying this thread, as I am also in the market for a slightly used SUV. Looking to bump up in size a little from an '03 RAV4 that has served me very well. Several of the vehicles mentioned in this thread have been in my crosshairs recently. Anyone have personal experience with a Chevy Equinox or GMC Terrain that they'd like to share?
  5. I wasn't expecting them to make a splashy WR signing, but the nonchalance they've shown toward the position thus far is certainly troubling. Investing major draft capital seems like a prudent move (if they nail the picks), but I'd still like to see them bring in a veteran for more reliable depth. Looking at the remaining free agent scraps, only Robinson and Allison seem remotely appealing. RFA David Moore is also intriguing. A trade might be more likely - there's a few teams with crowded WR depth charts, maybe Rasul Douglas would interest them?
  6. Not exactly. I was able to package Ekeler with Darnold (!) earlier this week, to get Winston and Gallup. Maybe I hopped off a little late, but I enjoyed the ride.
  7. Darren Waller listed as a WR in the online Draft Dominator, and the mobile app as well.
  8. Why can't I install the mobile version on my chromebook?
  9. I don't understand the people who say the Eagles need to add CB depth. And there are many of them.
  10. I'm hoping those rumblings about trade discussions with the 49ers are for real. McKinnon would be acceptable, but I would much prefer Breida. Niners will have to make some kind of move, their RB depth chart is overloaded at this point.
  11. Apparently the "restructuring" merely consisted of Long agreeing to push back the date on which his roster bonus is paid, because he has yet to decide if he's playing this season. It's sometime after the draft now. Classy move by Long, no surprise there. So the cap space Howie created was solely due to manipulating Bradham's contract.
  12. In my scenario I was thinking that the upstart AAF had different eligibility rules than the NFL. A quick search shows this not to be the case. Probably part of their plan to position themselves as a true NFL minor league. The XFL however...
  13. Lot of buzz about LeVeon Bell potentially going to SF. Would love to make a play for Breida if it actually goes down.
  14. What's stopping a stud college freshman from dropping out of school and signing with the AAF for one season, then jumping to the NFL as a marquee free agent? Can't see how he'd be draft eligible, since he's clearly not an amateur anymore.
