Goodell totally did!  Dbag. 

 

 

Yeah, that's so obvious, it's not even debatable.  Wipes nose, realizes there's something stuck to his fingers, rolls it into a ball, wipes it in girl's hair.  What a piece of shit.

 

I mean we have probably all done that before, minus the wiping it in the girl's hair part.  You gotta hold onto it and flick it off when no one is looking.

Former Browns WR Michael Jackson, 48, was killed in a motorcycle accident in Louisiana. He was going at a high speed when someone backed out and blocked traffic, causing him to crash into the driver's side door and killed him and the woman both.

The only way to combat that nonsense & tomfoolery - for Tecmo 2017-18, yo - is to go retro:

ESPN is doubling down on its programming of "TV personalities" to replace sports highlight shows, solidifying their strategic opinion that what moderate fans want is more cable news-type drama and bickering, and less actual sports.

 

In related news, America is dying.

Isn't it, though?

All things equal health-wise I'm taking Fournette. If a team checks him out and has any reservations about his ability to stay healthy, it's a lot safer to go Cook. People overlook the ability to stay on the field Emmett Smith brought to the table when evaluating his greatness.

 

Looks like the Jags were on the same page with me. Considering they're the Jags, I'm not sure I should feel smart.

They're a company that makes the majority of their money on subscriptions (around 2/3rds).  They are bleeding money because people are cord cutting and people not interested in sports are no longer obligated to pay for ESPN when they do pay for online subscriptions.

 

Why would I wait around to watch a highlight on a show if I can just pull it up on the internet?

This.

 

Not that I agree with all their political diatribe, but I still feel it is important to not have everything be SportsCenter all day. I leave ESPN on during the morning at work and have to say I enjoy some of the "podcasts" they have on live air. Once it becomes the Stephen A. Show, I turn that shit off. That guy is a dressed up ESPN robot trying to get ratings and offers little actual insight, IMO.

Patriots picked up WR Andrew Hawkins (whether or not he makes the team is secondary), but this cements the fact that we're going to see far more 4 WR sets out of New England this year. Tom Brady is going to be gunning for every year-long QB record possible.

 

If Gronk is healthy, then I consider him a lock for 5000 yards and 50 touchdowns.

Chip Kelly the ESPN analyst. http://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/19469859/chip-kelly-joins-espn-work-studio-analyst-college-football-nfl

LOLz. F*ck you, Chip Kelly. F*************ck yoooooooooou.

 

What did Chip Kelly ever do to you? And didn't he help Bill Belichick create his version of the hurry-up offense?

I don't have to know Chip Kelly personally to think he's a talentless, arrogant, f*ckstick, whose greatest claim to fame is focusing on a scheme that takes advantage of the across-the-board suckage that are college defenses.

F*CK Chip Kelly.

I have a feeling Hawkins may not make the final 53.  But yeah, the Pats offense is going to be scary and Brady could very well break some records.

      Tecmo Super Bowl is the greatest sports video game of all time. Now, 25 years after TSB made 8-Bit legends of Bo Jackson and Lawrence Taylor, TecmoBowl.org proudly announces the release of Tecmo Super Bowl 2017. This site's 10th yearly iteration updates Tecmo's NES classic with up-to-date rosters, graphics, schedules and play books for all 32 NFL squads.  Additionally, you can now check the defensive conditions of your players.

      Playable on multiple platforms and operating systems via NES emulation software, Tecmo Super Bowl 2016 brings Nintendo's bone-crunching classic to today's computers and handheld devices.

      Will offenses fear Von Miller like they feared Lawrence Taylor? Who is the more deadly play-caller: Aaron Rodgers or Dan Marino? Will Todd Gurley live up to the hype? Loaded into an NES Emulator, Tecmo Super Bowl 2017 will make legends for the next 25 years.

      A. How This Works
      If you're new to emulation:
      ROM = Game or Cartridge (.nes file) Emulator = NES System  
      B. How To Play - PC/Mac
      Download Nestopia for your platform and also the .nes ROM -  Windows | Mac  Open Nestopia. From Nestopia, File > Open and find your .nes ROM. C. How to Play Online - Windows
      Setup for online play using our guide - http://tecmobowl.org/topic/53066-guide-get-started-playing-tsb-online-for-dummies/. We then recommend starting out at the TPC - http://www.tecmoplayers.com.

      Most TPC players use the original Tecmo Super Bowl ROM, but you might be able to find some people playing TSB 2016. Remember that the versions of the game must be exactly the same or you will not be able to connect.

      If you’re looking for an online league, we recommend TecmoBowl.org's Online Tecmo Leagues.

      D. Tecmo Super Bowl 2017 notes
      Check Defense condition - In the same location as the time out menu there is now a "CHECK DEF" option which lets you scroll left and right through your players 4-3 Defenses - Several teams employ 4-3 defenses.  The "RT" (Right Tackle) will show up as the LILB on the rosters. 32-Team ROM Rosters current as of 9/7/16 Adjustable quarter length Playbook editing in-game Player 2 attributes now display correctly Halftime stats Pass Control determines if a pass will be completed. Passing Accuracy determines if the ball will be on target. E. Known Issues
      CPU can lock up under certain circumstances, most commonly a player 2 FG make. A hard reset (or open/close) of the emulator should clear the issue F. Credits

      ** on-field can include from the sidelines, too (like Drew Stanton, or something).
       
      A few that come to mind (for me), are:
       
      Tim Harris
      Justin Tucker
      Marquette King
       
      WHO ARE YOURS?!
