Sorry for not playing out whatever thing you guys got going on.  New to this thread, and while it seems pretty amusing it also seems....weird and I don't entirely get the protocol.

Feel free to just ignore it and talk actual football.

I mean, obviously I get the the references to Spicer and Mooch (and, as a niners fan, that's why I enjoyed the Mooch nickname so much for Scaramucci in the first place), but it seems this has evolved (devolved) into some amusing but annoying parody of this amusing but annoying parody:

Yeah, you've got the gist of it, only centered around sportstalk. And as Maith said, feel free to ignore it if it's not to your taste.

Much rather the niners suck this season and do this then spend a fortune on Cousins.  Also, as someone with multiple Chicago fans as friends, it'd be awesome if they could rip of the Bears again.  I can wait another year of the Niners sucking, been doing so most years anyway since I hit high school.

Yeah, I'm thinking that's probably the smarter of the two stratagems. That said, I kind of dig Cousins, although the price tag does seem a bit steep.

Well, I suppose I can't complain considering the schtick actually led to some mention of the Niners.  I don't expect they'll be mentioned too much this season, outside of "hmm, who's gonna get the 1st pick in the draft."  They've already lost their biggest offseason signing - who was both a Raider and terribly overpaid - for the season.  Not a good omen.

ETA:  Forgot Garcon.  Guess he'd be their biggest offseason signing.

So 538 has an article called "Blake Bortles is the Tom Brady of NFL Garbage Time".  Get with the times 538, I already did that analysis back in December!

I swear sports writers read this thread for ideas, this is like the third time this has happened. 

NOte:  for the record, I don't remember who actually first referred to Garbage Time as Bortles Time.  My suspicion is that brigand @Jaime L

We'll know who the culprits are as soon as one refers to Beal as the undead one.

I would happily put the mortgage on that.

Go read the fantasy football threads in the Forum Games section. You'll figure it out. Start with experts.

Looks like these two Bay area fans are about to put 49ing into a 69! Owwwwww!!!!!

If you can't handle the Spice, stay out of the can!

Have you ever drank so much Jack Daniels that your best friend's wedding took place in Greece? Then you live the Spice life!

Don't want to keep your cart in your immediate vicinity at the grocery store? Mooch is the man you need.

Haven't watched CNN in a decade because of your mayonnaise+chili related heart condition, Mooch is your relapse! 

Stay clean, get Mooched, hold strong, and be SPICEY!!!!

Never been a fantasy sports guy.  It's actually getting pretty annoying as even more and more of my non-sportsfan friends get into it.  But I'm stubborn.

You don't wanna know all the ways I can end that sentence.

I think what @dmc515 really needs to experience is an epic Jacelyn Trump rant.

I'm right with you, I'm stubbornly avoiding FF.  I'll do pick em sorta games, but to me, what matters in sports is who wins, not who scores the points.  Fantasy sports leads to ridiculous conversations like this:

Me:  Oh man, the Falcons just won on a hail mary! Awesome play! 

Fantasy Sportsfan:  Was it Julio Jones?

Me:  :(
