    He's not the next Brady, but at this point he's certainly better than RGIII.

    Pretty devastating loss for the Colts last night. Handed the game to the Eagles on a silver platter.

    Those back to back blown calls were hard to swallow I would say

    Is the irony of Anhueser-Busch criticizing the NFL about domestic violence lost on anyone? I mean, Ray Rice admitted he was plastered when he punched his wife.

    1. I get what you're saying, but I'd find the irony striking only if I had some expectation that A-B would do something other than whatever seems most commercially strategic for them.

    2. Also, while I know this was not your intent, you're implicitly buying into Rice's bullshit a little bit. I'd suggest he didn't "admit" to being plastered so much as he made a half-assed attempt to "explain" why he punched her. I've been plastered once or twice in my life. I gather from what I've read one or two other posters may, at one point or another, have known a guy who knew a guy who has been plastered. Most of us don't punch people when we're drunk, much less knock someone smaller and weaker than ourselves unconscious. I get the link between abuse of alcohol and violent/abusive behavior, but Rice punched his wife because he's a dick and a bully, not because he drank beer.

    Also, this quote from a KSK post about Reggie Bush's stupid social media comment about disciplining his daughter:

    Don’t worry, though. Reggie Bush honestly tries not to leave bruises. Not in the same sense that he tries not to fumble but there’s definitely some effort in there.

    Now I wonder when Reggie Bush started beating his infant daughter.

    "Stop crying! You're only teething, you brat!" *wap* *wap* *wap*

    Bush is an idiot, obviously, but I will say that when I read his comment I thought one plausible interpretation was that he was saying that he expects to beat his daughter as a form of punishment when she's older, as opposed to saying that he does so now (also a plausible interpretation of what he said, though.)

    Happy times are here again, Gloria Allred is on the NFL case,

    Gloria Allred blasts NFL for handling of Brandon Marshall

    http://www.11alive.com/story/sports/nfl/2014/09/17/gloria-allred-atlanta-nfl-abuse/15780765/

    Allred has all the credibility of an Al Sharpton.

    Speaking of the "ole Sharpie Man". Surely there is a race angle to all of this crap that Al could seize on. Why shouldn't he get his beak wet? Aren't all of these disciplined players black............

    Looks like the Rams basically gave the whole NFL a blueprint of how to beat the Bucs now the Falcons are taking advantage.

    Does the NFL have a mercy rule? 35-0, and Tampa Bay has not yet picked up a first down.

    Falcons are having their way with the Bucs tonight. Bucs look clueless.

    You all will be eating crow when they come back in the second half and win by a field goal.

    If this were "real" football they could win it at the end with a rouge.
