Going to end up well

I'd love to make fun of Breitbart here, but sports journalism in general is not much better.

True, there's lots of shitty "journalism" out there.
Equally valid headline: "OMG Colts cut black player!"

So the media asks a question to get a rise, 95% of the athletes are smart enough to reveal nothing and give an inane answer......and somehow, that's ok!!! ESPN gets its ratings and somehow sports fans are content with the same regurgitated bullshit word salad

So when someone sits there and treats this process like the bullshit that it is, I enjoy it

But there is zero point to it. It's like throwing a tantrum when you call customer service and you give them all your information and confirmation pins/passwords etc, then they transfer you and you have to do it all over again - yes, it is dumb and annoying, but throwing a fit over it is only making you and the other person unhappy. The horse is out of the barn on the idiocy front, you can come down from the cross now, Bill.

One difference (which cuts in favor of your broader point): For most of us, dealing with aggravating customer service reps from time to time isn't a job requirement that comes with a position that pays us millions of dollars per year.

The broader point is that lawyerdad sucks.

If you've ever heard someone going at it with a customer service representative, it can be entertaining. Kind of like when we watch Belichick get as close to saying "F--- you" as he can to reporters he thinks are stupid. You might approach it differently, but you also don't have an audience. Most of the Patriots fans I know, myself included, enjoy it, so I see no reason for him to change.

I played Sammie Coates over Deandre Hopkins this week :bigstar:

Might not get any more points though, he has one hand right now.

I'll take 113 yards and a TD from my #3 receiver all day.

I'd probably take the Vikings over the Falcons to win the NFC. Falcons-Vikings would be a really good NFC championship, though.

Eh, hands weren't really his strong suit to begin with. Three drops/broken routes turned a potential monster game into a nice game. And that's not even counting the fact that he might have lost a couple of targets when Rothlisberger starting throwing more balls to Wheaton instead in the second half.

Tonight's MNF game was brutal to watch. I would've rather seen Brady's return against the Browns than tonight's garbage.
