NFL 2022: The preseason thread

Congress finna subpoena Dan Snyder. There is not enough popcorn for this.

I'm sure they'll ask him some very serious questions. And then find a way to give him and all the other unfairly maligned ultra-rich some more tax breaks as thanks for participating in their dog-and-pony show.

Or he goes and chills at Steve Bannon's place.

I can't decide if NFL owners or 1950's movie producers are more slimy as a rule.

Speaking of the former, the Raiders are a “boys club and the mob wrapped in one.” The second point explains the move to Vegas.

Edelman gets asked about Martellus Bennett's comment on Jimmy G.: "You can't win with a [email protected] for a quarterback."

Danny S refused to accept service of a subpoena to appear before the House Oversight and Reform Committee.

Martellus Bennett reference out of nowhere.

Adrian Peterson to box Le'Veon Bell.

Not really news worth mentioning. But what's with NFL players liking concussions.

Joe Burrow:

Damn, Joe Burrow pitching hard to make me a Bungles fan.

I would add to that that I am pro-Sandra whose health decisions are none of my f*cking business and none of yours either.

Baker Mayfield should totally do a comedy sketch in which he moves out of a stadium and hands over the keys to a confused Jacoby Brissett.

Terry McLaurin gets paid. $71m over three years. The WR market is getting ridiculous.

$23.67m a year average, that only puts him at 7th highest at the position. A step behind the $25m/yr A.J. Brown got.

I expect Deebo and DK will both beat that number and be in A.J. Brown's territory.

That's easy to solve. Root for players, not teams.

If I were McLaurin, I'd probably have pitched WFT on the 3rd round comp they'll get if they let him play out his 4th year, don't franchise tag him, and let him play for a less dysfunctional organization in 2023. Or just trade him next year.

Fantasy football teaches that lesson the hard way.

Certainly don't root for ownership.

Those of us in the GWJ dynasty league that is still going on are talking about starting the $20 "pro" redraft fantasy football league back up that stopped occurring a couple of years ago. We have 4 slots open at the moment. We'd like to keep this a GWJ league so if anyone here would like to join in, send me a pm. First come, first serve, and then we'll open it to others if need be.

PFT is filled with articles about how Watson might get no punishment or a slap on the wrist.

Calvin Ridley got a year long suspension for betting on games he had no part in while he was on injured reserve.

I just saw an article that said they should make last year his suspension year and fine him the 10Million he made. Except he sat out because he didn't want to play not because he was being punished for being a scumbag.

I really hope (and not just as a Steelers fan) that he never plays another game and somehow has to pay the women 200 Million (and as a Steelers fan watching the browns loose 200 million dollars would be just fantastic).

Calvin Ridley messed with money, not women, in a capitalistic, burgeoning theocracy.

This ain't some kind of secular communist hellscape!

Well you see, Robert Kraft didn't get punished for getting a handy from a (voluntary, non-trafficked) sex worker, so Deshaun Watson shouldn't get punished for forcing 24 women to perform sex work against their will.

That's the player's union logic, at least.

Jaylon Ferguson’s death was caused by fentanyl and cocaine, autopsy finds

Much harder to feel sympathy when it's this kind of self-inflicted tragedy. At some point you'd like to think people would, you know, stop using Fentanyl after it's killed off how many celebrities/athletes, particularly when mixed with coke.

I don't think a lot of folks make the conscious, informed decision to use Fentanyl. It is often cut into sh*t like cocaine and just as often sold as heroin.

Edit: beat to it.

Fair point, but, that being said, you're a professional athlete, and knowing what goes in your body is critical. "Don't do coke" or "don't do coke when you don't know the source" are no-brainers.

Oh. It got worse.

lol. This Is where being a fair-weather Seahawks fan really works out for me. I won’t watch any of the Drew Lock era.
