@Claude Giroux's Arresting Officer @Giantsfan1982  @simondelmonte The CFL is a very fun game to watch.  I said 10-15 years ago that the NFL should adopt their playing field.  With the NFL players getting so big and fast, it would only make sense to create more space.


The use for the RB in the NFL has diminished because no one can get around the corner on a sweep, so they have just taken it out of play.  Also, with the long end zones, it would give teams more space to score TD's instead of having to settle for all those FG's.

Andrews doesn't know there is a problem with the name.  She's too busy joking around with the players and coaches before the game.

@Giantsfan1982  @simondelmonte If football is a release for you, then what are the commercial breaks?  Nirvana?

The media has ignored countless signs about corruption within the league over the last 10 years.  It's as if they have finally been made aware of these things.  The same thing is happening with the President as well.


"The Emperor Has No Clothes."   It just took our "watchdog" media a long time to recognize it.

@oldschoolwrestlingdvds @Phive That's true.  But they didn't have commentary from the young blondes on SportsCenter who were 10 years old in '94.

@Phive Sure. But are you prepared to hear Skip Bayless' comments on all these events just because he works for the World Wide Follower of Twitter?  Or maybe Sam Ponder on the Rocket from when she was in the 8th grade?

i'm looking forward to hearing the analysis of the ESBM talking heads that were in high school or college when these events happened.  


30 for 30 WAS a good series, but the four-letter network doesn't know how to leave well enough alone.

Well stated MJ.  When you travel with a team, and you're a former player, you grow an attachment like you had in your playing days.  The fraternity of baseball players can reach beyond the current generation.

No.  If you swing and the ball hits you, it is a strike and a dead ball.

What a drama queen.  Maybe you should find other wholesome activities for your children to participate in other than FANTASY sports.  It's not the NFL's fault that it took you 25 years into your career to realize "the emperor has no clothes."  Maybe you should have read your children Aesop's fables or taught them some morals instead of boxscores and fantasy stats.

When you write 'concussion crisis', don't you mean 'concussiongate'?


It's simple really.  The majority of the sports media get their stories from constantly watching ESBM.  Once the network was told to back off by the NFL, the story went away.

@tonyc It probably has something to do with the US Open tennis.  All of the CBS executives and producers want to stay in NYC if they can over this weekend.

@bigboi42 @sir boxington That's not clear from the story.  They labeled it a 'blackout', when in reality it has nothing to do with the NFL Blackout restrictions for Saints HOME GAMES.

Once again you have buried the lead.  The real story here is that the Saints are having trouble selling out against their biggest and longest NFL rival.

His sources told him.

It's just another example of someone in the media trying to become part of the story.  I don't need to be told who is playing while I'm watching a game on TV.  I know what the Washington uniforms look like.  i would prefer just the highlights and the game, thank you.

When you break down that $1 million dollars over a year's period of time and divide by 100 stations, it comes to about $1000 a month per station.   That's much ado about nothing.

Is anyone surprised ESPN followed the NFL's lead for appropriate suspensions?  That's what makes this story so ironic.

Fox is pulling $1.2 million in advertising from 100 stations nationwide.  That's $12,000 a year per station, or $1,000 a month.  Big deal.
