  1. 4 first round picks or equivalent combination of picks and prospects.
  2. Tim Tebow associates with Focus on the Family which is an organization that advocates against LGBTQ rights including promoting conversion therapy.
  3. https://www.criminaldefenselawyer.com/resources/assault-second-degree-missouri.htm “-recklessly causes serious physical injury to another -while intoxicated by drugs or alcohol, operates a motor vehicle with criminal negligence and causes physical injury to another”
  4. By the rules of the league and the way it’s been called all year it does mean the ball was going forward.
  5. Yeah, if he's frustrated by St. Louis not buying him a new stadium Toronto's not going to be any more ideal. I imagine Rogers Centre is a worse venue than the stadium they have too.
  6. Lynch has nothing to do with Bryce Brown, but he was on his 2nd strike at that point wasn't he? And he had played himself out of the starting job and pretty clearly didn't want to be here. RBs don't get traded for much on good terms. What should they have gotten for him?
  7. Seven pages and a lot of hand-wringing over a guy was inactive 10 out of a possible 17 games here.
  8. I doubt the team is going to do anything to draw attention to it at all today.
  9. LOL. Freedom doesn't enter into it. This happened on stadium property. People camping out there are guests. It's a huge liability concern for the team and the county. Imagine if he'd turned the gun on other people first. I can't imagine the team wants to have to address this the morning of their home opener.
  10. Horrible and tragic and nobody gets to criticize the Pegulas if they decide to build a new stadium somewhere without tailgating as we know it.
  11. I mean even if a small portion of each fanbase stops watching (only when their team isn't playing though of course) there are still millions of people watching who are fans of the other team, fans of the Patriots, who are just fans of the sport, or who have fantasy teams. So let's say you get your hundred people and Tim Graham or somebody comes calling to write a story about it what do you say the endgame is? Ideally what would you like to accomplish?
  12. Seems pretty pansy-ish to only boycott the games your team isn't playing in. If you really want to make a statement stop watching, reading, commenting and spending money on the NFL altogether. That'll show 'em.
  13. This seems to be the same thing that Rex has been saying anytime he's asked. They are hopeful he'll be back but it's not a sure thing. Not sure why people are surprised or incredulous now.
  14. There's no way they go through this day, call a press conference basically just to talk about it only to sign him again a few weeks later. It was reported that they never even tried to get him to take a paycut so his salary by itself wasn't the problem. He's gone.
  15. No place in this country does free speech work the way you are describing and this entire topic is about his job performance so free speech doesn't even enter into it.
  16. Incognito's reputation preceded the Martin situation and this doesn't excuse the texts and voicemails that were the basis of the investigation. So no.
  17. Whoa wait what is this nonsense? Free speech just means the government can't arrest you for certain kinds of speech. It doesn't give you carte blanche to say whatever you want without any sort of repercussions. Boycotts are part of the free market. If enough people stopped listening to WGR it's conceivable they would have to replace the on-air talent with people the public liked better. Schopp or anyone else on that station could say something today and if the station felt it wasn't in their best interests to keep that person anymore they could fire them and it would have nothing to do with God or the constitution.
  18. They'll bring back Chuck Dickerson and also make it the 90s again.
  19. Yeah, Easely was JUST signed recently primarily for special teams' ability. Hard to imagine they suddenly stop valuing that for a WR that would hardly play.
