    2018-19 NBA Season

    I was thinking more along the lines of Joe Walsh:

    2018 NFL Season

    Denver tried to trade for him in 2016 but the deal fell through when they couldn't agree on the terms for his guaranteed money. Seattle never offered him a contract, they just worked him out. The Ravens only had conversations with Kaepernick but never formally made a contract offer. So he's had zero offers and a total of one workout since the end of 2016. As far as I know, Kaepernick has not demanded a starting spot with any team since becoming a free agent. Do you have a source for that claim?

    2018 NFL Season

    This is the first time I can remember not being the least bit excited about watching my team, or the NFL, in a very long time. Kind of hard to support a team when the head coach says things like "We have a lot of respect for that [legal] situation" in regards to LeSean McCoy being sued by his ex-girlfriend for allegedly having something to do with an intruder robbing her at gunpoint and having her beat up, among other things (i.e. abusing his son and dog). It's also hard to support that team when the players vote McCoy as a co-team captain and the head coach says he is "very proud of him for that". I'm glad that Nike is putting Kaepernick in that new ad even if it's just to piss off the NFL and Trump. Good for them. I look forward to the owners having to testify in open court now that the collusion case is moving to trial. As usual, the league's incompetence knows no bounds. Just one single owner could have prevented this whole thing by just giving Kaepernick a roster spot. Not even a starting or backup spot, just a third string spot. Instead, there's a decent chance that the NFL will have to admit that they blacklisted a player out of fear of public backlash brought on by criticism from the President. These guys are total fools.

    I'm liking the new ticker. The ad space is a little distracting, but overall I think it's a nice look. I do wish that they would stack the team names vertically when showing each score. The old ESPNews ticker from 2008-2013 was the best of all time, IMO. Just get rid of the scrolling text portion below:

    NFL 2018 changes

    My observations on the new uniforms that debuted last night: - The Dolphins look like the Dolphins again! It's amazing what a few small tweaks can do to a uniform. I would have to give them a solid "A" for this upgrade. As long as the Jets don't screw up their new unis next year, I think the AFC East will be the best-looking division in the NFL hands down. Fight me. - The Jaguars sort of look like the Jaguars again! The black helmets are freakin' gorgeous, and seeing them break out the teal jerseys made me so happy. But I'm still not completely in love with the rest of the uniform. I give them a "B" for now but I'm waiting to see what the black jerseys and the road unis will look like. - The Titans are just meh. I don't hate them as much I thought I would, but I'm still disappointed that they pretty much ripped off the Seahawks' look. I feel like people are going to get bored with the navy blue pretty quickly, especially when they see how terrible a Titans-Texans game is going to look. I give them a "C-"
  6. Man, the only thing missing from these updated Dolphins unis is an aqua facemask. They would look SO GOOD.

    I'd rather listen to T.O. rant for 40 minutes than to hear 30 seconds of Ray Lewis quoting bible verses. EDIT:

    2018 NFL Season

    I'm the same age and all I can think about after reading your post is how much of a die-hard NFL fan I was back in high school. I could remember a time where I would be so excited just waiting for training camp to start. The game has just changed so much in the last 10 years, it's starting to become unrecognizable. We're pretty much a year away from seeing kickoffs eliminated entirely. The kid in me who used to love watching Dante Hall making those unreal kick returns, or seeing Devin Hester return a kick back for a touchdown to start off Super Bowl XLI, would be so disappointed to find out that plays like this will someday no longer exist. I watched a little bit of the HOF game, and the new tackle rule is so ridiculously stupid that it might top the old catch rule for "worst idea ever". They basically outlawed any physical contact by a defensive player. Even when you try and avoid helmet-to-helmet contact, you're going to get flagged. Even when you lead with a shoulder while making a tackle, you're going to get flagged. It's basically impossible to make a tackle without making a little bit of helmet contact on some part of the ball-carrier's body, even if it's just a graze of the facemask. This rule will be an unmitigated disaster when the regular season rolls around.

    NBC has hit a home run with their new SNF graphics, IMO. I think the new scorebug is by far the best out of all four networks currently.

    2018 NBA "Off"Season-Because It's Always On

    Dwight Howard now only needs to sign with one more team (Miami) before he can complete the Southeast division sweep!

    At least we get to celebrate the return of Ohtani for a little while before getting swept by the Mariners.

    2018 NBA "Off"Season-Because It's Always On

    I hate the Warriors, but you know what.... I hope they win the next five titles. Serves the NBA right after Stern nullified the CP3-Lakers trade in 2011 because he didn't want another super-team.

    NFL Increases Use of Alternate Uniforms in 2018

    Does this include the playoffs too? Like if the Rams decided to only wear their throwbacks twice during the season, could they now choose to wear them a third time in a playoff game?
