NFL News:

  • There is was talk about maybe having to either delay or move the Mexico City game, because the field is apparently complete ass.
    • Estadio Azteca switched to a hybrid turf of both synthetic and natural grass this year, and it has been unable to hold up for the stadium’s busy schedule of hosting concerts and soccer matches.
      • Paul McCartney played there October 28th, and something called Adexe y Nau were there November 7th.
    • A decision will be made sometime on Tuesday, in conjunction with the NFLPA. [UPDATED – see below]
      • This might take more care than cancelling the Hall of Fame game.
        • I doubt Toby Keith will play a concert in Mexico City.
    • The choices are were either to move it to LA, because it’s technically a Rams home date, or wait until Week 12 to see if it improves, and make this week the bye week for those teams.
      • The Rams are already pissed, because they are training in Colorado Springs, and Stan doesn’t want to have to pay for another week of hotel rooms.
“It’s fine.” – Dan Snyder
  • 6:00 PM ET Updateit’s been moved to LA.
    • “The decision is based on the determination — in consultation with the NFLPA and following a meeting and field inspection this afternoon by NFL and club field experts as well as local and independent outside experts — that the playing field at Estadio Azteca does not meet NFL standards for playability and consistency and will not meet those standards by next Monday,”

   

Fine                                                                                                                Not fine

  • Le’Veon Bell had until 4:00PM ET to return to the Steelers, or else he can’t play for the rest of the year.
    • The thinking about why he wouldn’t appear is because the amount of money he’ll get paid – about $6 million for the rest of the season – is tiny compared to what he’d earn guaranteed based on his projected free agency.
    • 4:00 PM ET updatehe did not sign, and will either
      • become a free agent in 2019, or
      • the Steelers will have to tag him again at a QB rate, which in 2018 was roughly $23.2 million, up from the $14.5 million he was scheduled to make under the running back tag.
  • In a “Would they be fired together?” scenario, Hue Jackson has returned to Marv Lewis’ teat.
    • He will be a “special assistant to the head coach”, which on the Bengals amounts to being a special assistance aide.
    • This is the second time Jackson has done this, after leaving in 2010 to coach the Raiders and then returning a year later.

      • Last night, a bloody Becky Lynch took Raw off the air, in what many are calling her “Stone Cold” moment. What will the response be?

   

Tragic update from Stroud over at the old place:

Becky Lynch vs. Ronda Rousey should main-event Sunday’s Survivor Series event, the match isn’t happening at all. The champion vs. champion match has reportedly been removed from Sunday’s card due to injury…Fightful is reporting that the blood spilled during Raw’s closing segment came along with a broken nose and a concussion…During the brawl, Nia Jax stiffed Lynch, causing her to be cut open. It was originally reported that there was no heat on Jax for the incident, but with the new information, the sentiment has changed.

This is why we can’t have nice things. Still, Wakezilla had the right idea last night –

BOW TO YOUR NEW QUEEN!

Coming up on 2:30am.

Got all my work done for the week. My ladyfriend had to go home tonight to take care of her elderly mother and to take her to a cardiology referral appt tomorrow. Where I am at least 90% confident, after meeting her (the mother that is) and seeing how she is medically/clinically, that they will tell her she is going to die soon and there’s nothing they can do about it, other than maybe delay it some. I do not expect tomorrow to be a fun day in FLA.

Sooooo….time to start drinking. Even at 2:30am. DON’T YOU JUDGE ME!!!!!!

theeWeeBabySeamus

The suck of it is that the mother is the sweetest gal ever. She loved me.
But she is not doing well. No I didn’t tell this to the ladyfriend, at least not this bluntly.

yeah right

Alright. Got to share this.

Looks like I’m gonna lose a cousin. A sibling. Barely older than me.

They released her to go home to hospice care.

Her sisters had to pay the electrical for the hospice equipment because.

It’s odd.

We haven’t been that close lately but it fucks with your upbringing.

Her shit was all lifestyle choice and the lack to address the negative health ramifications that they led to.

To me it set a base line of 55 years of age of when you can not pay attention to your health.

Love you cousin Darla.

Godspeed to whatever the fuck is next.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Sorry man, sincerely. Thoughts be with cousin Darla. Sounds like she lived life on her own terms. Kudos to her for that, at least.

yeah right

Thanks Brother.

Shit’s getting close to home.

yeah right

This was the first of the siblings.

Guess I have to outlive them all, yeah?

theeWeeBabySeamus

Damn right. Who else am I gonna go to taprooms with in El Segundo?

yeah right

Say when.

Oooh…The Rock is on AMC.

Who remembers the fucked up Garfield anthology special where experiment torture Garfield escaped from a lab?

Brocky

I’ve actually been on a bit of garfield kick since the drawings like the one I posted below began popping up on reddit.

found some tumbler exploring the “dark side of garfield, it included the storyline where he was seemingly abandoned, and the clip you showed above.

long story short, i literally just saw it yesterday. Small world amiright?

Arizona is looking for a recount in this hockey game, they go down 4-0 in the second.

I ordered takeout from the local roadhouse place. The fella that makes the extra-hot wings happened to be working tonight. He’s got a hot pepper in there. Small touch of grain mustard (not completely sure) Wherever the heat comes from, it lingers like a recently-divorced dad that fought for visitation rights because he thought it would impress the daughter that hates his guts.

Guy’s a fucking genius.

That is a very sly reference to the work of Kathy Acker. Well done!

So I assume with the game moved to LA, the Santa Ana winds will push the fire all the way to Inglewood.

At least the air quality will be better than at Mexico City.

The man has a point.

also 15-20% fewer kidnappings!

The Santa Ana winds are really messing with my throat today. I’m sucking down cough drops faster than Justin Blackmon sucks down an unattended bottle of Grand Marne while the bartender has his back turned.

Spot shooter by the name of Mays on LSU threw down a dunk you’ll see on the highlights later on. WOW!

herodotus450
herodotus450

If he was a true Mays he would say “But wait, there’s more!” instead of “And one” after getting fouled.

scotchnaut

As an old man I beg to differ. A true Mays would make an over the shoulder basket catch to save a couple of runs.

ballsofsteelandfury

As a pervert, a true Mays would invite all shooters to fill the hole

He should’ve taken the transition from player to coach as the opportunity to rebrand as Tupence Hardaway.
