NFL News:

 

  • The Broncos have to rename their stadium, until they get a new sponsor who will rename it for them.
    • Broncos Stadium at Mile High is the chosen moniker.
    • The name is designed to be a temporary one until the team secures another naming rights sponsor, due to The Sports Authority going bankrupt in 2016.
  • In a move sure to upset Fantasy owners everywhere, Julio Jones is working out with Terrell Owens.
    • Falcons management is said to be “concerned” because they don’t want Jones’ mini-holdout to blow up into T-O sized crisis.
  • The ‘other’ offseason football league has added some quality coaching talent to its roster.
    • With the reported addition of Daryl Johnson yesterday, the Alliance of American Football now has him & Mike Martz, Brad Childress, Mike Singletary, Rick Neuheisel, Dennis Erickson, Phil Savage, Michael Vick, Steve Spurrier, Jon Kitna and Larry Marmie are among the former players, coaches and front office staff joining the fledgling league.
    • Meanwhile, the XFL has HODOR’s dad as CEO.

Finally, in news Gratliff & I will pour one out over, former Rams center Leon White – aka Big Van Vader – died Monday night at age 63.

  • He only lasted two years in the NFL, but played for the Rams in Super Bowl XIV against the Steelers.
    • A game my mom remembers as being the backdrop for the Warren Beatty version of “Heaven Can Wait”.
  • I’m speaking blasphemy, but the best tribute to his wrestling persona can be found under Brandon Stroud’s name over at With Spandex on Uproxx.

I’m including two video clips. The first is his WCW debut back in 1990.

The second is the match where he ripped off part of Mick Foley’s ear.

Dude was awesome. If you watch, have fun going down the rabbit hole.

This in my mind has become a non-gender term; Donal Trump, Roger Goodell, are more cunts than any woman I can think of right now.

Him: Fuck you, I don’t wanna hear it.
Me: Tough shit, asshole.

That sounds like a him problem

theeWeeBabySeamus

That was my take as well.

And I also might have told him to stop being a whiny bitch. I will neither confirm nor deny.

The proper response

Plus, I woke his wife up apparently with calling repeatedly. Which is the only reason he ended up answering. LMFAO.

He shoulda thunk of that before he talked shit over the past month or so.

Dirty stinkin’ arrogant Tarhole.

(I actually love the guy, but like most Carolina fans he has a blind spot where his alma mater is concerned)

Amazing. What’s the point of sports rivalies of you can’t get significant others involved in shit talking. Either willingly or not

theeWeeBabySeamus

I totes agree. My best friend (lives in Charlotte, NC area) who I went to school with at NC State…. Well he up and married a Florida State alum. Dummy.

Or so I thought.

Turned out she was cool as hell and talks good-natured shit with me all the time.

How absurd is our culture? An insolvent business was paying millions of dollars a year, while tanking, for naming rights paid to a billion-dollar franchise to advertise on a stadium paid for by the public.

But those black players want to kneel!
