Your “One of These Games Just Doesn’t Belong” 4 Spot Slate Open Thread

[scans dessert menu] Oh my, look what we have here! That Creme Brulee looks wonderful. Oooooo, maybe I’ll go for the Baked Alaska-I’ve heard great things about it from my yoga instructor. [looks to bottom of menu] Hmmm. An unopened sugar packet on a cow’s tongue? Why would they even bother putting that on the menu? Are they just trying to fill space? Speaking of… TO THE GAMES!

Hou/LAR: The “How Can You Not Cheer For Them?”* Rams have scored an average of 36 ppg in their last four victories. Did I follow my own advice that I shared with you folks a few weeks ago and stash Goff at the bottom of my roster for safekeeping? Sure I did-for about five days or so and then moved on to larger mistakes. I dislike being stupid. I highly recommend against it if you can help it. The Texans have barely scored more points than they’ve given up as is the way of many 3-5 teams. His Below-Average-ness, Tom Savage Garden is entrusted to get the team going just like he didn’t in the vast majority of all the other games he’s started.

*Abandoned St. Louisians excepted

Dal/Atl: The Cowboys have cobbled together three straight wins but now are without Zeke. This is good news for a reeling Falcons team that has lost four of its last five. Remember Tevin Coleman? OC Steve Sarkasian hasn’t. That rb that is particularly proficient at catching balls out of the backfield has been fed three passes in the last four games. This is gross misuse of talent along the lines of Marcus Allen under Al Davis. Still, given that the Dallas D gives up 4.4 yards per rush maybe the Foreman/Coleman duo should be given the ball 30+ times today. Of course a little pitch and catch between Ryan and Jones (if he’s healthy) should be thrown in there as well.

NYG/SF: Did I mention something about telling your loved ones how important they are to you? I did? Well, go ahead.

It’s all over except for my crying. Do what you do.

So apparently* Goodell is asking for $50 million a year in his new contract, and health insurance for life, and, for some reason, a jet plane. For life.

Seems reasonable.

*Source is a talk radio host from New England so maybe not the best information I’ve ever passed along.

King Hippo

I would do it for $5M and forget the plane. I likes to work from home. Think of all the moneys you fucks can save!!

It’s hard to know who to cheer for in Goodell vs. JJ, but I think a good resolution would be that Goodell gets a new contract — but it’s not guaranteed, and he can be cut like any NFL player.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Also he has a salary cap for the rest of his staff.

Inanimate Carbon Rod Marinelli

Goodell gets a giant contract, JJ keels over in an apoplectic rage, Goodell is fired by the other owns for violating a clause than penalizes him for using the letter E.

Horatio Cornblower

I’m in favor of them settling it the way Hamilton and Burr settled their differences, hopefully with the same result; one of them dead and the other in flight.

I could do without a musical though.

Shogun Marcus

I’m still confused on what exactly JJ is suing on/for. I know he’s the literal crazy texan, but huh?

Horatio Cornblower

Allegedly he’s suing because he doesn’t like the contract. Which if the above is even remotely accurate I don’t blame him for.

According to Mike Francesca, Jones is really pissed that Goodell mishandled the anthem-kneeling and wants him punished for that, because it’s costing the league money.

I suspect the reality is that Goodell suspended JJ’s gotdamned new star, and that’s why Jones wants his ass on a platter.

Shogun Marcus

I get his bitching and fee-fees being hurt…but what legal basis does he have for anything?

Horatio Cornblower

His attorneys get paid to worry about that. JJ doesn’t give a shit.

Spur
Spur

He’s not doing what Double J wants. Double J cannot let his whores showing him up.

Dunstan

Pretty sure there’s no actual lawsuit yet. JJ is just threatening one. As to what the grounds would be, I bet JJ’s lawyers would like to know that, too.

Horatio Cornblower

As an experienced attorney I can tell you that all you need to file a lawsuit are a pen and some paper; the grounds are optional.

Shogun Marcus

McAdoo might be left behind. Literally.

King Hippo

oh is he NAWT saved ,, smgdh
