NFL News:

  • Tuesday is the start of the official free agency “tampering window”, where teams can contact available players ahead of the new League-year start of 4:00 PM ET Thursday.
    • it sounds suspiciously closer to how Darren Sharper left his dates’ apartments
    • the League sent out it’s annual do’s & don’ts memo

Prohibited actions during the legal tampering window include: (1) executing a player contract; (2) executing an agreement in principle “or similar document”; (3) announcing that an agreement in principle or similar agreement has been reached; (4) violating the CBA provisions that relate to undisclosed contractual terms.

  • so expect lots of rumours and “rumors” leading up to 12:00 PM opening on Tuesday, with nothing being official until after 4:00 PM Thursday
  • Speaking of the rumor mill:
    • PFT reports that the League is on pace to make $14 billion in revenue for 2017.
      • the totals are buoyed by revenue & rights due to the Rams move, the Chargers move, and new stadiums in Minnesota & Atlanta
        • still no ideas where the Raiders are going to end up. (Please be Mexico City)
    • nfl.com notes how Rams CB Trumaine Johnson signed his tender today, to avoid being Josh Norman’d if long-term contract talks stall.
    • Deadspin covers how probable it is that Mike Glennon might get paid up to $15 million next season.

Mike.

Fucking.

Glennon.

Finally, if you need to get your podcast fix prior to the next dose from the guys at Free Ballin’, the SI Media Podcast with Richard Deitsch has a number of topics that CBS Boston found very interesting. Notably, he talks about ol’ Rog’s lack of transparency & availability, and how capricious League discipline can be vis-a-vis owner versus player discipline.

This is on top of the decision to punish the Giants 10 whole spots on their 4th round draft pick for their walkie talkie use versus the Cowboys. Yessiree, winning a Superb Owl does nothing to quell the FACKING OUTRAGE in New England.

Say what you will about the band but as a father of two daughters who played in school band, and one who was 1st chair french horn, this fucking moved me.

Well, BFC’s here. Hey, Brocky, wanna play some 7-card?

SonOfSpam

Yep. Unexpected naps are glorious but deadly. Ok, not deadly, but still…gonna have to jerk it twice to get to sleep.

WCS

Before (or while) jerking it twice, come play some seven-card stud with us.

BrettFavresColonoscopy

I think this is what led to the nap.

The jerking, not the poker.

NBA seems to want ONLY the opinions of ex-players.

I guess it makes sense that two schools called Saint Mary’s and Brigham Young would play a late night basketball game in Las Vegas.

Brocky

only with an adequate amount of adult supervision of course.

If a female student gets pregnant from being assaulted by a player, they’ll either kick HER out or chalk it up to immaculate conception.

WCS

Or, at Notre Dame, they’ll shame her into suicide.

For a reason the NBA broadcast here is in Spanish. Perfect background for reading until the fourth quarter.

You still in Turlock? Because if so, you’re the only one reading in the city.

Speaking of podcasts, I’ll recommend Crimetown again. It’s about how the mafia used to rule Providence, RI and is narrated by a guy I affectionately refer to as goombah Richard Dreyfus. http://www.crimetownshow.com/

Looks like Milwaukee will win its 11th game in the conference semis. Should they end up winning the Horizon (vs. mighty Northern KY), they will dance at 12-23. That would be fucking awesome.

WCS

Maybe they could become the first #16 seed to beat #1 Gonzaga.

Brocky

and they beat valpo! a school I dislike simply due to being in a town i associate with hipsters!

WVU students should bring signs to their next competition against Baylor saying, “We may fuck our cousins, but we ask them first.”

Arizona just signed the first openly gay CFB recruit. I’m thrilled at this event only because it means that SOMEONE at ASU will make some kind of discriminatory statement/gameday sign, and then I can paint their entire fanbase with a single anti-LGBTQRSTUV brush.

As a reminder, Tom Brady and Donald Trump are close personal friends.

Local casino here is called Sham Rock Casino. Doesn’t seem wise to have the word “sham” in the name of your gambling establishment.

Besides money, I’ve never understood why most conferences let all of their schools compete in their personal tournaments. Theoretically, bottom feeders like Boston College or Rutgers could find some sort of magic, win five games in five days and become “champions”, which almost guarantees a more deserving mid-major or quality bubble team gets squeezed out.

Or they just suck like they’re supposed to and the higher seed gets a pointless win which likely doesn’t help their resume. Just silly.

(UConn pulling off the five wins in five days thing and going on to win it all few years back was cool though)

Senor Weaselo

Rebuttal: Fuck UConn.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Now now, they aren’t ALL bad…

I’m a St. John’s boy, Rikki, so fuck UConn. Unless they’re playing Cuse. Then fuck ’em both, the meteor’s too good for them.

I teach at a night school and they hired this guy about 8 weeks ago. From day one, something has not sat right about this guy. Lately, Ive seen him be pretty sociable with a couple of the girls in his class in a way that looks….peculiar. These girls are clearly minors. More to follow.

question……

does he like chaco tacos?

I watched Bad Mom last night. It’s the Hangover meets mom porn. Surprisingly, Vince Mancini Mike Ryan’d his analysis of the film. He thought it would be raunchy, when the ad clearly made it seem like the film was The Hangover for Moms.

Tl/dr: Unless you’re a mom, skip this one

To be fair, it did cause El Generico to retire to his orphanage in Tijuana.
