NFL News:

  • I guess iron doesn’t sharpen iron: Richard Sherman says the Seahawks defence is what will propel the team through this season.
    • “At the end of the day, it’s really on us.”
    • It doesn’t really help that the Seahawks have only scored 21 points in two games.
    • Perhaps John Schneider & Pete Carroll should take heed of the next verse in Proverbs 27, and get Russell some fucking blockers:

17 As iron sharpens iron,
so one person sharpens another.
18 The one who guards a fig tree will eat its fruit,
and whoever protects their master will be honored.

  • Charles Tillman is training to become an FBI agent.
    • According to the Chicago Tribune, FBI guidelines mandate prospective candidates for hiring as a special agent must be at least 23 years old but younger than 37 at the time of appointment. Tillman turns 37 on Feb. 23.
  • DeMaurice Smith has been re-elected as head of the NFLPA.
    • So, the League has reached out to begin talks on extending the current CBA.
  • NFL officials are liaising with people on the ground to make sure Azteca Stadium is structurally sound – following yesterday’s 7.1 magnitude earthquake – for the Patriots-Raiders game on November 19th.
Pictured: not significant damage, or a “junta constructiva”.

Finally, I regret to inform you that Jay-Z has turned down the Super Bowl halftime show.

  • Probably because HOVA doesn’t do -25 degrees, even if it’s indoors.
  • I doubt the NFL would be interested in The Replacements.
  • I choose to remind you all again the immense tragedy of Prince’s death, because how good would it have been.

TWEEK!! lol

Senor Weaselo

I lied. It was not an hour on the train. It was an hour and a half.

I still think Stinger should’ve won that fight. I give aggression and control to Stinger even if damage goes to Mega Tento.

Yes, Battlebots rerun is on.

Running on an indoor track. The bros who just came in here and chased away my eye candy must suffer. Oh yes. They must pay.

I’ve been listening to The Fall of the Roman Empire podcast and I never really appreciated how the Roman and Persian Empires existed at the same time.

The NFL Can’t Keep TV Afloat Anymore. No shit.

NFL ratings have fallen significantly across all providers over the past seasons and so far 2017 is not looking any better. The only positive element to that decline may be that fewer people have to watch the sad sight of the Los Angeles Rams playing in front of a mostly empty stadium at the Coliseum.

GODRAMMIT!

Frankly, there is no real value to watching a four-hour game that only has twelve minutes of actual game play.

Wakezilla

I think all pro sports, not just the NFL, have gone past the consumer threshold and are going to have to cut costs. The product is shit and it’s too expensive

Yep.

Contraction would be a good start. Then relegation. Also, eliminating the NCAA.
