  1. If this is true, they need a change (the person who designed the recent look should be in rehab). If I was doing it, I would go back to the creamsicle look, but with the flag as the logo (no Bucco Bruce. That was another mistake). I would also have red pants on the road, not orange ones (like they had from 1992-96).
  2. From League of Fans: http://www.leagueoffans.org/2019/07/24/limiting-full-contact-practices-cuts-football-concussions-57/ Also, here is the article Ken linked to: https://journals.sagepub.com/eprint/UWVQT6VQDKK8W7HU3Y3N/full
  3. It could make the NFL better. The players aren't developing properly in college. For example, a lot of O-linemen don't know what certain types of blocks are when they come into the league. The NFL would have a better product if they developed their own players, and not put that responsibility on the colleges.
  4. Also, this guy I used to play hockey with said that he liked it because of the strategy involved. I could never get into it myself, however.
  5. What you said here got me to go back to the SI archive. Previously, I read a three-part series about Brutality in Football from 1978 (believe it or not). On the page I am reading, here is this quote: Here is a link to that issue: https://www.si.com/vault/issue/70793/75 Another thing that was talked about in that three-part series (spanning three issues. I don't know if it's in this one or not) is the shoulder pads. Back then, someone wrote that the coaches maybe don't like pads with extra padding because they like to hear the pads pop.
  6. KD is a punk for going to Golden State. He didn't earn his rings. That's the only problem that I have with the Warriors. I like Portland, and it sucks to lose, but they aren't good enough yet to win a title. Nobody expected them to get that far.
  7. This division wants to stay a joke. Outside of the Jets, the Bills have a young QB that I am skeptical about (although they may have a good young defense with Ed Oliver, Tremaine Edmunds, and Tredavious White), and the Dolphins are terrible.
  8. Also, some other factors helped them win 11 in 13: 1. Red Auerbach's drafting skill: He drafted people like Tom Heinsohn, K.C. Jones, Frank Ramsey, and Satch Sanders that contributed a lot to their dynasty. 2. Luck in acquistion: He was able to get Bill Russell in 1956 despite not having a first-round pick (a territorial selection used on Tom Heinsohn). He also was lucky to end up with Bob Cousy despite passing on him. 3. Luck with opponents (on and off the court): The Royals losing Maurice Stokes in 1958 took a future roadblock out of Boston's way (Cincy would eventually add Oscar Robertson and Jerry Lucas with territorial picks, and they along with Stokes and Jack Twyman could have been hell for Boston in the 60's). Also, the Lakers should have defeated them in 62 and 69, and the Sixers should have defeated them in 68.
  9. After reading this article on The Ringer, it seems to me that some of the Patriot defensive players had respect for Belichick, and wanted him to be named as HC in 2000: https://www.theringer.com/2017/8/9/16119282/new-england-patriots-belichick-brady-2000-team I'm not sure if that would have been different three years earlier. I think that Bill would have had more respect from his team than Pete Carroll did (Carroll was a rah-rah guy that the players tuned out, from what I understand). Also, he would have inherited a Drew Bledsoe that was more in his prime, and he would have had Curtis "my favorite" Martin as RB (although I can see him letting him go to NY a year later rather than pay him a lot of money. RB's are disposable to Belichick).
  10. It's ESPN. Of course they are going to televise stuff of low quality. That's the network that Skip Bayless was on for years. It reminds me of something that Charles Barkley said when an ESPN reporter stuck a mike in his face and he saw the logo: "ESPN? You are still trying to rip people off with that s-word station, ain't ya?".
  11. My cousin is a Browns fan in NE Ohio (although he also liked the 49ers in the late-80's and early-90's) who has been complaining about the NE Ohio Steeler bandwagoners for over a decade now. I will warn him that those fans will probably jump to his side if this team starts winning consistently.
  12. That's the game where B-Marsh caught the winning TD, and was going to put a black glove on and do a power salute (this was after Obama was elected) in the end zone. However, some of his teammates stopped him: http://socialistworker.org/2008/11/10/one-salute-wasnt-allowed
  13. I don't know if you remember, but the Steelers fans weren't talking trash in the 80's, that's for sure.
  14. Oh, yeah. Hill was a problem in college as well.
