    Trevor Story had surgery on his right UCL and is expected to miss time

    Enrique Iglesias. He could be our hero, baby... Criticism of the timing/"putting this off" are unfounded. Yes, it's frustrating, and it seems like Sale TJ redux, but this situation is obviously different. And good on Kike for calling it out.

    Yankees to retire Paul O’Neill’s number

    This post deserves some love. Or maybe they should retire Jeffrey Maier's seat? (Well, the equivalent seat in the new stadium)

    2022 coaching carousel

    I always thought Peterson was a better coach than what happened in Philly. I guess now we'll find out if he is. I like the hire, but if it was only because they found someone who'd work with/under Baalke, Khan has screwed this up yet again.

    Brian Flores suing NFL, Giants over "sham" Rooney rule - "mistakenly" (?) sent Belichick text may be linchpin

    This is exactly what it's starting to look like. The NFL's hiring practices are clearly flawed, and real change that isn't the Rooney Rule is needed. So Flores' main contention is correct, but it's also obvious. His throwing dirt on everyone and everything, though, is weakening his case, not...

    Washington Football Team is now the Washington Commanders

    Brian Flores suing NFL, Giants over "sham" Rooney rule - "mistakenly" (?) sent Belichick text may be linchpin

    Lost in all of this, and for good reason because it's not near as serious, but Elway and his cronies showing up hungover for an interview is like the sun rising tomorrow. Of course it will, and of course he did.

    Brian Flores suing NFL, Giants over "sham" Rooney rule - "mistakenly" (?) sent Belichick text may be linchpin

    The NFL, and Goodell in particular along with the owners who employ him, are long overdue for a day of reckoning. I hope this along with the Gruden fiasco/WFT situation is the overdue impetus to make it happen.

    Brian Flores suing NFL, Giants over "sham" Rooney rule - "mistakenly" (?) sent Belichick text may be linchpin

    Davis might be one of the only owners, if not the only one, who doesn't care (or at least cares far less) at maintaining the good old boys club with his colleagues, especially given the history he lived through with his dad and given how the other owners screwed him out of moving to LA.

    Brian Flores suing NFL, Giants over "sham" Rooney rule - "mistakenly" (?) sent Belichick text may be linchpin

    I agree. Clearly, the NFL has an issue with lack of minority head coaches, GMs, and owners. It's a problem. At the same time, the Rooney Rule was always a token rule that did nothing to address this. I don't know what the solution is, but I know the Rooney rule hasn't been and isn't it. The NFL...

    NFL Playoffs - Divisional Round game thread

    Absolutely. There's no doubt, and the thesis here needs more love. What a great weekend to be a football fan. I hate the NFL, but damn do I love football.

    Tompa Bay: Tom Tom club

    Yes, it does, and good point on his hypocrisy.

    Tompa Bay: Tom Tom club

    The problem with this is there would be no "what if" if AB wasn't who he is. The fact that he has issues galore is what enabled the Pats to get him for so cheap, with no compensation, at the beginning of the season, in the first place. It's not like he was some great find by Belichick, who...

    Tompa Bay: Tom Tom club

    I mean, how this situation went down is surprising. But why it went down isn't (SJH nails it above). And that AB went AB and then blamed others is the least surprising thing ever. I hope I never see him on an NFL field again. He's the ultimate cancer. BA and AB deserved each other, and they...

    Tompa Bay: Tom Tom club

    Any SOSHers get a screen shot of AB's account and routing numbers before he took them down? Asking for a friend. This morning is like extended Christmas.

    NFL: News and transactions

    Yes, this is crazy. The new rules say that, vaccinated or not, you must quarantine for 5 days and then can return. Also, if you test positive and return, you don't need to be tested for 90 days. A smart team will have every player on the roster test positive today (either for real, by running...

    Tompa Bay: Tom Tom club

    More proof of what a horrible person AB is. I have no idea how, as a repeat offender of the league's Personal Conduct Policy (multiple times), he gets off as easy as he does, and why he's even been allowed to play without suspension for TB until now (Isn't he still facing battery charges?) And...

    CFB Coach Carousel

    Yes, this is exactly what I was alluding to. Kelly always had to consider the academic implications of players getting into ND, and at LSU, this obviously won't be an issue.
