  1. The XFL may be making a comeback

    Theyll have the ability (and necessity) to unionize, which isn’t possible in WWE. They’ll get what they deserve, either from him or from a backtracking NCAA.
  2. 2017 NFL Season

    Not sure why anyone who’s not a panthers fan would care. In the grand scheme of things it’s pretty irrelevant.
  3. The XFL may be making a comeback

    Then either way the players win, and that’s all I want to see.

    I don’t know. I know a catch when I see one, and that’s a catch. They can codify it all they want, but at the end of the day common sense needs to prevail. Whats the point of the fumble out of the end zone rule? It bit the eagles a few weeks ago (tho they would have lost anyway) but it cost a team a game last night. Why is it different than fumbling forward in any other spot of the field? Seems like one of those archaic rules that needs to be relooked at now that so much more is on the line with these games.
  5. The XFL may be making a comeback

    They’ll create their own niche by taking the top recruits from the D1 programs because they can (legally) pay them pennies on the dollar to play, which will over time (this is what the bet would be) diminish the appeal of NCAA football, essentially turning it back into true amateur athletics. Its something that could take a generation to pull off, but taking out the NCAA is a goal worth pursuing. The main obstacle is that fans have allegiances to their alma maters, so people will still go crazy for tOSU games and not so much for the Columbus Xtreme. Chipping away at the quality of play at the college level is really the only way to do it.
  6. NFL 2017 changes?

    Is it though? Is this national news? Seriously, I don't know. I haven't heard it come up anywhere outside of ESPN and sports sites, while the Sterling thing was everywhere, and even people who had never heard of the LA Clippers knew about that story.

    that touchback rule is the single worst one in football. I've been saying it for years - it makes absolutely no sense that it's treated differently when the ball goes out of the endzone vs when it goes out of bounds anywhere else.
  8. 2017 NFL Season

    If it's all about a "system", and anyone can be great if they're in that "system", why doesn't everyone just copy the system? Seriously? Why can't the coaches that coach that system simply implement it elsewhere and have the same success? Stop it with the "it's the system" stuff. The "system" can't hold for 16 years. The game changes, trends change, styles change, etc. The Patriots obviously have a great coach that has a winning philosophy, but stop discounting the skill of their players, especially their QB. If it was just a "system", then every other team is stupid for not just doing the same thing - and let's not act like it's rocket science and that it requires 10 coaches working 30-hr days to design the "system".

    here's Nick Foles waving from on top of a dinosaur. Makes sense.
  10. NFL 2017 changes?

    We won't know until we see what they're wearing in a few years. Right now I'm just hoping the Eagles don't wear their "slow" green pants in the big game this year. One has nothing to do with the other.
  11. Say it ain't so, Joe

    Look, I'm as on board with the anti Penn State Sandusky stuff as anyone, but jesus - every college has fraternity hazing issues. Penn State is just in the spotlight right now because of a death. Don't pretend for a second that the exact same stuff isn't going on at 100+ other colletes / universities. If you think it's not, you're naive at best, an idiot at worst.
  12. 2017 NFL Season

    For the first time this year, the Eagles named team captains, hence why they're wearing the "C" patches for the first time ever. They picked 5 of them. Of those, 3 are on IR and done for the year. They're out a HOF OL, captain of the D, elite QB, top special teams player, and Darren Sproles, who was their #1 RB and top returner. They just clinched a bye, and only have to win one of their next 2 (or lose both as long as MIN loses one) to clinch home field throughout. While it would have been fun to see them beat the Steelers in MIN, I can handle them losing to NE again. Funny that the two Eagles v Patriots SBs are going to happen in the two worst SB cities ever.
  13. Do You Remember Champion Athletic?

    I don't get this thread - Champion (under their own original brand) is widely available at most major chains, and C9 (their Target brand) is available at every Target. They still have a uniform catalog for schools, though I'm not sure how many still use them. I think everyone that follows uniforms knows that for a very long time, Champion was the NBA. Also, there's an entire font called the "Champion Font" because their NFL jerseys all used it (note the 2 and 7.) Obviously, ND used that font for a while too.

    Oops.
  15. The XFL may be making a comeback

    Quoting myself here just to bring this over to this thread. "Power 5" college football is bull :censored:, and blue-chip high schoolers need a better option than to be taken advantage of by a farce of an institution like college football.
