  1. I am just going off of the Sal tweet from early in the thread that said the alternate helmet color can only be used by either color rush/alternate or throwback unis. I want the current uniform with the red helmet. TBH I want us to have our own identity with the red helmet and not dressing up as the 90s. "Spoke to Bills COO Ron Raccuia who told me the red helmet Josh Allen wore won’t be a helmet they wear in 2022 because the league only allows an alternate helmet with either: 1. Throwback unis 2. Color rush/alternate unis Bills can’t wear red helmet with the throwbacks because the throwbacks use the standing buffalo while the red Josh had on is the charging buffalo. No match Their color rush unis are all red. Can’t use it with those because all red head/toe is not their preferred look. So the Bills will either wait until the NFL changes policy and allows an alternate helmet with regular home/away uniforms, or wait to unveil a new alternate uniform themselves."
  2. Allen's is pretty rough, I was super excited. Maybe the NFL will take notice of how excited people were and change the dumb rule. Are the Bengals uniforms color rush with the white helmet?
  3. I am struggling to understand the "only played x playoff team" metric. I could be wrong but by my count every playoff team played between 5-8 playoff teams. We are really making a stink about 6 being a low amount? Max two games? I mean I couldve counted wrong somewhere but thats not a great metric. Then on top of it, yes we lost 4 of the 6, but we didn't get blown out of any of them. In fact, the 4 we lost were: Patriots Wind Game (go ahead and hold that against us, I am sure itll happen again 🙄) Titans came down to the last snap of the game Buccaneers came down to OT Steelers we lost and that one sucked We dismantled the Chiefs and the Patriots (part 2).
  4. I don't even know if this is worth arguing about. I said: Which it does. This part of my post is separate from the other part of the post where I am literally asking a question not making a statement. You said: Which both answers my question correctly but also tells me I am wrong for thinking per the rules that a player cannot contact another team while under contact. They cannot, but the onus is on the team they contacted to show them the door and then advise the league which you stated. No need for arrogance, its just a discussion.
  5. Well it does actually say what i thought, but they just blame the offending team like you said. Which is crazy in my opinion, it takes two to tango. Contact by Player. If a club is contacted by a player (or his representative) who is under contract to or whose negotiating rights are held by another club, and such player has not been given permission to negotiate with other clubs, or such player is not in a permissible negotiating period under the terms of an operative collective bargaining agreement, then the contacted club is prohibited from (i) negotiating with the player or his agent; (ii) discussing even in general terms the player’s possible employment with the contacted club; or (iii) discussing the player’s contract or his potential or ongoing contract negotiations with his current club In addition, the contacted club representative must inform the player or his representative that under NFL rules the club is not permitted to discuss such matters, and, if such matters are raised by or with the player or his representative, the club representative must immediately report such contact to the owner or operating head of the club that holds the player’s rights. Nothing in this section shall preclude a club from negotiating with the certified agent of a prospective Unrestricted Free Agent during the two-day negotiating period, subject to that provision’s prohibition against direct contact by the club with the player himself
  6. May be true but even when the player clearly engages back and have active, meetings, and open discussions in response? What is the official tampering rule? Feel like it says "Players may not...." as well as "Teams may not..."
  7. Wait now that I think about it, wasn't this all coming out publicly around the time Brady retired? It is too coincidental. I am theorizing that Brady found out this was coming out and planned to retire after the 2021 season to avoid tainting his "legacy" (already tainted but probably not to him) and getting suspended for the 2022 season which may have been his last. So then he gets assurances from the NFL that he wont get any sort of suspension for this and then unretires.
  8. I don't understand either. Tom Brady is clearly aware of these rules. Does this mean players can just go talk to teams with no repercussions?
  9. Plenty of people get fired for things they do outside of the workplace because they reflect poorly on the workplace. Even speech alone gets people fired due to internet mob pressure if it goes viral enough. So how does this not reflect poorly on the NFL and why do they not have cause to suspend him for as much other offenses that affect the game integrity? In my opinion you either believe he had wrongdoing and throw the book at him, or you dont believe he did anything and you let him off free. This middle ground is just an absurd stance to take.
  10. I removed it bc i found an article saying it was fake. But yeah we will see in a few short weeks.
  11. These guys will be better than Hill/Waddle in 2022: Jefferson / Thielen (Vikings) Adams / Renfrow (Raiders) Kupp / Robinson (Rams) Allen / Williams (Chargers) Godwin / Evans (Buccaneers) These guys will probably not have better years but would if 2021 QBs still played for their team: Samuel / Aiyuk (49ers) Lockett / Metcalf (Seahawks) Depending on if Davis takes the step forward, we could too. Time will tell, but this reeks of "we got LeSean McCoy! We are coming for you AFC East!" drought mentality.
  12. The Pats, the Chiefs, the Giants...I see this recurring theme that we shouldn't use colors bc they look like other teams colors. The Bills dont have a very unique color scheme unless you consider shading, we can't be afraid to use our colors the way we want. I do think there are better options than the all red though. All red with white helmet should be the limit.
  13. Think we should mix it up and try new things. Apparently last year we had the most variations we've ever had:
  14. Whats the advantage to being paid in crypto as opposed to being paid in usd and then buying crypto with it? Isnt it taxed as income either way?
  15. Ahhhh, that makes a ton more sense. I was pretty confused as I wasnt seeing anything else on it. And you hit the nail on the head with the 2 studios. Probably not a huge investment to make your fanbase happy you are committed to improving the game, but they just want to milk the nfl money bag.
  16. According to the Pats fans they were relevant before the wild card game and it was an equal matchup with the bills slight favored. After all they didnt have to throw the ball more than 3 times and beat us remember? We are expected to just pretend we didnt lay the smackdown on them? What would that look like? I think most of us were looking on to Kansas City shortly after the game Sunday Night, but no we arent going to simmer down on a perfect record breaking game by Josh Allen because some pats fans think we should be "punching up." Also I take issue with Baltimore not "punching down" to the Pats. They didn't even play them last year, they didnt even make the playoffs. Like what would Baltimore possibly have to say that is at all relevant? Better comparison would have been the colts that they got smashed by and one look at the colts forums shows they were dancing the night away after that game. Miami was even talking trash to the Patriots after beating them twice. I just don't even know what the guy is talking about. Just sounds like us when the Patriots were beating us lol.
  17. Lol. I guess Brady had a watered down division and should feel a bit hollow as well then. What is it 33 different starting qbs for the rest of the AFC East while the Patriots had 1? (maybe 2 if you count the Cassel year). When the Patriots have a qb its our fault we can't compete. When the Bills have a qb, its our fault the Pats can't compete. Just admit you are a fish fan at this point. Either that or you like the attention from detracting from the fan base.
  18. I read people on social media saying the browns have an out to void the deal if new evidence came to light on the accusations. A 24th person joining the lawsuit with its own set of accusations may fit that. Edit: and by void the deal i mean just the guaranteed money. They wouldnt get their picks back from Houston.
  19. For sure. I was going to say this is a weird thing for the NFL to allow a company to buy a team. Maybe they will roll back to the better Denver uniforms.
  20. Still have physical copies. I haven't played madden in a long time either but i think when the player is on the cover there are special things in the game, like in the below video:
  21. So what does this mean? Is Madden on the cover and these 4 are just alternates? Or is there officially 4 players who get to say they are on the cover of Madden? Not that it matters a ton, I am just curious. I wanted to buy it the year Josh gets it so I am confused.
  22. If this were the case, couldn't players sue for uneven enforcement of the rule? Seems like so many players being suspended would be of your same opinion then and not want to lose their game checks and as a result making a huge stink about it.
  23. Last year, I subscribed to Peacock and Paramount+ each $5.00 a month and was able to watch the NFL games on CBS and NBC. Fox is a little more difficult as it has no streaming service for live tv as far as I know. For that I just do free trials with sling tv or the other cable streaming options, the bills rarely play on fox so its not horribly inefficient. I just cancel the trial after the game. TNF, you can usually get with Amazon Prime and their streaming service. If you don't have Amazon Prime, then you are probably stuck with TV streaming cable packages (basically cable) MNF I believe ESPN+ is 5.99 a month. So for about $28 a month you can get most individual games (except Fox). Hulu, Youtube, Sling TV offer cable packages that offset all of these at once for about $60-70 a month depending on the deal, so basically cable cost. If you want redzone then that is probably the direction you'd want to go. All of the above is far better than cable which after 12 months up their "discount" from $70 to $100+, so I am not sure why some people think its a bad deal. Not to mention, when I had spectrum cable 2 years ago, I didnt get a cable box, so I used the spectrum app and the Bills games were often so pixelated that it was unwatchable. Switched to the CBS app and it worked perfectly. Hopefully they fixed that in the last couple years.
  24. Context man. A lot of people are suggesting he is criminally liable. Anyone can civilly sue, but is he criminally guilty? Who knows, but it doesn't sound like we will find out because he has not been criminally charged. 😂
  25. Not speaking on the Watson case at all as I dont follow it too closely but not sure where you have been but social media has turned America into a country in which the court of public opinion can assign punitive damages to you based on their gut feeling on a situation. They are allowed to harass you, your employer, your family, all based on their personal view of your wrong doing and whatever facts/opinions/views they find might align with their perspective. This is apart from the actual justice system that assigns punitive damages based on a trial by judge/jury of your peers. There actually needs to be something that protects people while the justice system works because people are impatient and want immediate retribution. I am not at all saying Watson isnt getting a fair shake especially with that crazy cleveland deal but there are many people that aren't given the chance to defend themselves because the social media mob has already passed down their decision and see fit to destroy your life in retribution.
