    NFL Thread: "Terrell Owens does what?" edition

    Probably, though I suspect Baker will get some playing time once they're eliminated from playoff contention. I'm sure the Chiefs would have done that too.

    Threatening no more fun time between the sheets? Oh who am I kidding, that haven't hooked up since the kid was born. Smart move on her part to get a permanent connection to the Trump fortune, if there is any. That's overly harsh, Sugarcube. Yeah it was mostly a PR stunt. I doubt he cared at all. Also, while I haven't gotten to read the text of the EO yet, I'm sure it was written in such a way that there are a ton of loopholes to allow what's going on to mostly continue.

    NBA Free agency 2018: Where's the King landing?

    Icky! I know, but The Dan Le Batard show is really good. I'm surprised more people here don't listen to it. It fits the sensibilities of the board for the most part.

    NFL Thread: "Terrell Owens does what?" edition

    Yeah I largely agree with this, and the possibility of the Giants trading out had to worry them. And as you pointed out, unless the Browns traded the top pick (maybe they should have), one of their guys would have been there at four. I think what that indicates is it was down to Darnold or Mayfield. The one mistake I think the Browns made is given the number of second round picks they had, they should have either stayed put and gotten the two best guys in the draft and traded back up to get Jackson or traded the first pick for a boatload of picks, gotten Chubb or Nelson at four, get another first rounder at a position of need and then traded back up for Jackson. The Browns were a perfect situation for Jackson to land into. He could have backed up Tygod for a year or two and then have been handed the keys to a team that would have been loaded by then. Regardless though, if Mayfield turns out to be good, you've got a nice little team there. I think you'll be bad again in 2018, maybe four to six wins, but the year after you should be a playoff contender. Speaking of Baker and TT, has there been any reporting on how they're going to handle that?

    He's kind of funny, like an over the top wrestler. I always catch the opening segment of his show after Le Batard before switching over to NPR or The Economist, assuming I can listen to my radio at work at that time.

    That's actually a common strategy. Much like prisoners, people object when they hear that refugees and undocumented persons are being housed in their community.

    I'd advise against that, good sir. If that's all you're offering they'll be drunk......and mad. Our firms have a lot of blood on their hands, and word is they are hungering for Russian flesh.

    You’ve heard his voice before? In all fairness, the Celtics probably would have beaten the Cavs if he was healthy. But no, Kyrie, overall, is not better than Paul. Also, SAS is so much better with Skip in his life.

    Truthfully I had no idea. Also, I hadn’t heard this in a long time. Seems like an apt time to share it:

    The no state income tax matters to most players, but not LeBron. The number I heard was that it will lead to saving between 8 and 12% of his salary, which is $3-4m. I’m not sure how it effects the rest of his income, but that’s like 1% of his current net worth, which will skyrocket in the years to come. I’d be surprised if that amount of savings would drive his decision. In other news, I’ve heard several talking heads on the radio say that Kawhi has basically told Pop that he’s done with the Spurs and that’s final. The Spurs have to trade now while he still has value.

    The thing is people won’t and the only reason there’s an uproar right now is because we have pictures and audio. Absent that, this story wouldn’t be getting much burn. Look at Ray Rice vs. Greg Hardy. The latter’s crimes were far worse, but we did have footage of him beating his GF on a pile of guns. And because of that he was able to continue playing. Rice, OTOH, immediately got blackballed.

    I’m not surprised that he’s on that white lady, but I am surprised that he would blurt it out. Also, I have to commend his audaciousness. Most people would start with advocating for the legalization of the herb, but ol’ Swaggy P said hold by beer.

    What a perfect example of how Trump stands for NOTHING. You have several members of his administration saying contradictory things, and then he changes his stance in less than 24 hours, and don’t be surprised if he changes it again. You act like he wants to address any of this. He likes his sadistic policy, he’s just starting to realize that the PR isn’t good anymore.

    Apparently the England-Tunisia match had a higher viewership in the UK than the royal wedding. Have you people no pride in your kind of fake royal family?!?!?

    I don’t think you can say Tatum is off the table if it means getting one of the top 5, if not top 3 players in the league. You just can’t part with him for a one year rental. Brown, OTOH, can be traded for a rental, though you’d hope Kawhi would sign long term. You’ve seen more of Brown than me, but I really think he’s the byproduct of the Celtics’ system, and IMO it would be wise to sell high on him. I’m not sure he’ll ever get that much better than he is now. And as far as Rozier goes, he’s a nice player, but he’s not anywhere near as good as Kyrie. Sure he’s a serviceable replacement, but Kyrie is a top 15ish player in the league, and if you combine that with a top 5 player in Kawhi, a top 25 player Hayward, a multi-time All-Star in Horford and one of the best young talents in the league in Tatum, you have a legit chance of beating the Warriors. The only down side is you’d have to break the team up in a few years, but that would probably happen anyways because you’ve already got too many guys that need to get paid.

    NBA Free agency 2018: Where's the King landing?

    I wouldn’t part with Tatum unless Kawhi is willing to sign the moment he arrives in Boston. And again, Boston has too much talent, and they’ll lose a lot of pieces to FA, so they should trade a couple guys for Kawhi. Also, I don’t think he can be had for a player and a pick. Other teams can offer a lot more.

    Hey! I’m a Jewish liberal! Also, I just saw a report that it’s way more expensive to separate and house the kids than it would be to detain the families together. It costs close to three times more per day. Also also, your Moroccan booty just got kicked by Ronaldo!!!!!!

    Do you really trust Scary Terry? He wilted in the Eastern Conference Finals. Also, you’ve got too many wings with that trade. You should be pushing Brown while his value his high. I’d offer the two aforementioned players and a pick or two for him, even if he won’t guarantee he’ll resign with you.

    World Cup 2018: Celebratin' Your Nation.

    Psh. Russia’s economy is smaller than multiple U.S. states, and is comparable to collapsing economies in Europe. All they have is nukes, and that’s it. You remove that, they lose all their standing in the world and they would probably have been attacked over the annexation of Crimea. But here’s the ultimate proof that Russia is a weak, lame, worthless S-Hole country: https://www.cnbc.com/2018/06/19/moscow-runs-low-on-beer-necessities-for-thirsty-world-cup-fans.html These world class drunks are running out of beer, and it hasn’t even been a whole week. No great power would ever do that.

    NBA Free agency 2018: Where's the King landing?

    I saw a report a day or two ago that there was no way they’d trade him to another Western Conference team, and that if they were to trade him, they’d take pennies on the dollar to send him to the East. Which means my take from last week was right and LeBron to the Sixers and they’re trading Simmons for Kawhi. GET HYPED!

    Two? Russia has never been a great power. The Soviets were, but they’ve been smashed and scattered to the winds, much like House Baratheon.
