The Pro Football Hall of Fame will not allow Junior Seau's family to speak at his induction, because it would make the ceremony too long.

I tuned in last week for Favre's GB HOF induction. It was fun until Brett stood up & thanked every single person he'd ever met for 50 minutes straight.

As a Charger fan whose favorite Charger will always be Seau, I'm disgusted by how the HOF is treating his family, and there's no way the NFL didn't pressure them to do so in order to avoid any more uncomfortable conversations about head injuries.

The NFL pressured them two years before Junior Seau died because they knew this would happen? I think you're letting your "Charger fan whose favorite Charger will always be Seau" thing get in the way.

TY Hilton just got 5 years, $65 million with $39 million guaranteed from the Colts. I hope Ted Thompson sends an edible arrangement to Randall Cobb every time a receiver signs a mammoth extension. 4 years and $40 million seems even more like an absolute bargain every day.

It's certainly a bargain. But while Cobb could have made more money elsewhere, I think he realizes that a huge amount of his success comes from who's throwing to him. I mean, some people thought Greg Jennings was one of the best receivers in football when Rodgers was throwing to him, but he got released by the Vikings two pedestrian years into his huge contract.

Agreed. And I remember reading that part of the appeal for Cobb was the almost certainty that he'd earn every penny of that $40 million (as opposed to some other deals where it seems unlikely that the player will play out the contract), and then be in line for another, potentially bigger contract entering just his age-28 season. Because, on GB, you'd assume his production will still be at an awfully high level.

add in the fact that he has been and will be on a major playoff contender year-in and year-out as well

Not really sure where to put this. But Chris Borland discusses some of the things I only see discussed on the smartest (and only) message board I participate on...

Thanks for sharing and good for ESPN to cover stories the NFL would probably prefer they didn't.

Also, does anyone like floating menu bars? Because I sure don't get any value from them.
