NFL News:

  • The London games have been announced.
    • Seattle Seahawks vs. Oakland Raiders, Tottenham stadium, Oct. 14.
    • Philadelphia Eagles vs. Jacksonville Jaguars, Wembley Stadium, Oct. 21 or 28.
    • Tennessee Titans vs. Los Angeles Chargers, Wembley Stadium, Oct. 21 or 28.
  • Aaron Donald is signed to his 5th-year of his rookie deal, so the Rams don’t feel it a 2018 offseason priority to negotiate a long-term deal.
    • Because star players enjoy being treated like they aren’t an immediate concern.
  • The Bills are now calling what happened with Richie Incognito a “verbal misunderstanding” between two competing players in the heat of battle.
    • “There was definitely an exchange… I think there’s a misunderstanding of what was said. … From what I understand, it was a little bit of on-the-field stuff, back and forth.”
Happens all the time.

Finally, nfl.com has a pretty revealing look into the rehab process of former Dolphins coach Chris Foerster.

  

He’s had a bad year. A fun year, but a bad year.

It’s a recount of the 60-days of Dolphins-sponsored rehab, and the coming-to-grips with the nearly 30 years of alcohol abuse he says he put himself through.

In a statement of support which explains why he stuck by Aaron Hernandez to the end, Dolphins center Mike Pouncey said, “our relationship over the last year and a half is awesome. I still talk to him every day now. Just to see him get through this process. A lot of guys turn theirs backs on him. For me, I’m just not like that. I’m a loyal guy. I think if a guy has a problem, I want to help him get through it.”


Sorry, I’m a tad short on good ideas today. But in my internet travels this week, I did find a couple of interesting things.

First, a surprising catch by the WordPress spam filter:

From the “Let’s eat Grandma” punctuation department comes a query about whether one’s penis will curve while trafficking our site. Not since Marc Wallice has such a concept been considered. (Maybe don’t Google him at work; he’s been in places like Madison and Savannah.) Usually, it’s either Russians or Indonesians trying to ad-bomb the site. But now I’m worried that each time I prepare an Open Thread, Wakdjunkaga is going to pass his curse onto me “The Ring” style.

The second comes from Google, and I’d like to think it’s a point of DFO pride:

FIRST HIT, BABY! Again, thanks to Low Commander for the awesome photoshop.


Tonight’s sports:

  • NHL:
    • Blue Jackets at Sabres – 7:00PM | Sportsnet
  • NBA:
    • Cavaliers at Raptors – 8:00PM | TNT / Sportsnet1
    • Spurs at Lakers – 10:30PM | TNT / Sportsnet1

I’ll see youse guys on Monday, where hopefully don_T can lead us in a rousing celebration of Patriots schadenfreude. ONE CAN BUT HOPE!

The number of comic actors in The Disaster Artist was distracting. Or maybe it’s just because I can’t stand How Did This Get Made and the people on said podcast, but egh.

I like Tommy’s passion and that he has a dream.

The “Resistance” showed itself to be full of shit again today. Sixty five Democrats– including Schiff, Swalwell and Pelosi– voted in favor of corrupt racist, Jeff Sessions, having unreviewable authority and expanded Trump’s warrantless surveillance powers for the next six years.

You’d think with them insisting Trump is a treasonous puppet for Russia, they wouldn’t give Trump extremely invasive, largely unchecked domestic spying power.

Reading that article, the first thing that went in my head was the Will Ferrell comedy special when he was George Bush, he had a great bit about Trained Monkeys with spearguns. Operation Primate Speargun!

Now our president kind of actually achieved that….. accept in a different way. The monkeys have Herpes instead of Spearguns.

Folks!
Had did my first Interactive Design class this evening:
Lecture was about basics of pictures- pixels (a square of color); RGB color scheme; 1080P means High Def and 4K is just another kind of resolution; info/license about the picture/content found in something called The Metadata; when you first download/borrow an image make sure it is in the highest resolution; no uppercase or special characters when saving; use sRGB when saving for the website; difference between GIF, JPG, PNG, SVG and what they are short for.
And messed around in Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop

So according to a book on Paul Brown’s life, on his death bed one of the last things he told his son Mike was “Don’t draft David Klingler.”

Yup. That’s my Bengals.

WCS

Throughout the ’90s, Paul would visit Mike in the latter’s dreams, warning him not to pick Akili Smith, Ki-jana Carter, or Reinard Wilson. Paul stopped trying after warning his son against Peter Warrick, and Mike woke up saying what a great dream about pancakes.

the Alpha and the Amoeba

To be fair, another main point of that dream was warning him not to waffle on important matters, so his confusion is a bit understandable

Low Commander of the Super Soldiers

So it will have been a year ago tonight that the NFL gave up on me and allowed Dean to take his nepotism and lack of success north 3-ish hours, making an entire region hate him (even more). Even after the initial depression of losing something I cared about so much for so long wore off, I still wake up most days with a deep, SEETHING RAGE that mostly comes out when I’m in traffic, or when some hapless person mentions the team in any positive light within my earshot.

While the year has had its share of colossal embarrassments to the franchise, it simply wasn’t the dumpster fire I desperately needed it to be. A non-winning season would have very likely sent Philip Rivers packing (probably through a trade,) send the team back to the gutter and at least allow me some kind of rooting interest in the league, other than abject failure. Instead, I guess I’ll just have to accept my role as a bitter, (more) hateful young man.

Alright, enough of that. Who’s got the beer?

litre_cola

I was you when the Ice Bombers moved to Phoenix. I am happy for the return of them but as small a group as they were I did feel sorry for the Ice Falcons fans

Low Commander of the Super Soldiers

Was there a point when your anger subsided? Or at least lessened? Because this season has been brutal, and I probably watched less than 10 total quarters of NFL action.

litre_cola

I would say 2 or 3 years. I sort of followed Calgary as they were equally as shitty as the jets were thus not being a bandwagoner. When the Jets came back I was all in. Smallest city in the league and worst place to live in the winter. Pride..

nomonkeyfun

Look what it did to Fozz.
I was born 20 years after the Dodgers and Giants left NY, if knew where Walter O’Malley and Horace Stoneham were buried, I would be very hard pressed not to piss on their graves. I would shit on them, but I don’t want to give them any fertilizer.

Shitty Clippers have Whisenhunt. Don’t give up on your dreams of a crash and burn.

Think of it thisly – they came closest to the prize, and got burnt by the fucking goddamned Bengals and Bills winning the same weekend.

I mean, if you look at the bottom, you can see where the label isn’t properly attached to the can.

I think it’s just used to avoid having a brand in a commercial production.

That’s what I mean. Has anyone ever actually found a can or bottle of “BEER” in a store or business? Does “BEER” really exist?

yeah right

It’s been awhile but I can indeed confirm it’s existence. It used to be found in the beer section right next to Lucky Lager.

The title picture of this thread reminds me of the time I was digging through a box of miscellaneous toiletry items at my parent’s house, and buried deep at the bottom, I came across a travel-sized tube, simply labeled “TOOTHPASTE”.

The whole NFL handling of Chris Foerster is such a fucking double standard its insane.

WCS

This is clearly all Obama’s fault. #MAGA

the Alpha and the Amoeba

Well, to be fair, it’s not about the content of the infraction as much as the visibility and verifiability. If Chris had been caught by the Madden Cam snorting lines on the sideline or Richie had been wearing a KKK hood during the national anthem, that would have gotten a much more severe response.

Like any corporation, the NFL as a whole is essentially amoral, and any ethics it may appear to have are strictly utilitarian and only concern the effect on business.
