    Stephen A. Smith now has something to, as he would say, "bloviate" on about for the foreseeable future..... Greeeeeat.

    Early on in training camps, NFL teams are losing players left and right to injury and retirement. Ravens, Giants, Dolphins, Chiefs, Patriots, the list goes on and on of teams who have lost important personnel in the past week. Every year, I clench my butt a little tighter at the thought of potential training camp injuries for my beloved Patriots. If your team has suffered injury in the past few years, my heart goes out to you... unless you're a Cowboys fan.

    Yo. If you promoted a sport where a good percentage of its player base comes from poor, resource deficient regions, and in playing the sport, there's a high chance of some degree of brain injury or other severe long-term physical problems, wouldn't you too want to broadcast how much these players make to entice the next generation of human sacrifice to play the game? Live fast, die young; probably similar to the kind of logic the Roman promoters used when they threw slaves and vagrants into the combat pits of the colloseums. "Imagine the glory! The crowds will cheer for you! Make it out alive and you will be celebrated and well fed tonight! The women will love you!"

    I will admit that I feel a little bad for Prescott. Seems like a decent dude for as much as television speculation will get you. Jason Witten, too. I'm sure there's a bunch of 'good guys' on the Cowboys' team. Jason Garrett is a bumbling clown to me, I have no strong feelings either way, other than that he sucks. Now, Jerry Jones, the franchise most of the time, and a significant portion of the fan base? The worst.

    I just wanted to highlight a line by Jason Garrett from the article above, because it's precious. "We've got a track record of being able to take guys that made some mistakes early on in their career and they get better. They grow and they develop and they become great citizens and great players. We have a number of those guys on our team right now." Hahahahhaahahahhahahahahahah! Who knew Jason Garrett was such a comedian!

    July has hit, and with it will soon come the series of NFL season prognostications by those with the constitution to put themselves out on the limb by predicting the future. Here's TB.org forum-goer Mike Gordan's epic 2016-2017 Tom Brady/Patriots prognostication. #neverforget #dontquityourdayjobmikegordan

    Past his prime? For sure. But the Pats got a solid year out of Thomas, which is all they need out of Harris! Supppppeeeerrr Booooowwwwwwllll.

    Trrrrrrash? Dude was cut for cost savings by the Jets. He played 87% of all snaps last season! If the Pats can get another year or two out of Harris, who signed a 2-year deal, then that trash is treeeeeasssssssureeee.

    David Harris cut by Jets a couple of weeks ago, gets picked up by the Patriots. I love the Patriots.

    Put this in the woulda-shoulda-coulda category of thought, but the Cavs should feel like chumps right now. They played like chumps in these finals. LeBron, while still amazing, looked gassed throughout much of the series. I know, I know--he plays a ton of minutes, he's aging, and he's accrued more playing time than anyone in the post season. Totally. But those are all excuses for a team that should have been a better competitor to Golden State. The Cavs blew a huge 4th quarter lead early in the series. The Cavs blew so many opportunities last night to hold down another lead. I honestly believe the Cavs blew this series more than Kevin Durant added to Golden State's leverage.

    Saints are not exciting. AP is not going to tip the balance for that team into a contender. In the pass-happy NFL, losing Brandin Cooks and getting AP is not an even exchange. Raiders ARE exciting. I'm looking forward to seeing if they're able to get out of their own way. The next couple of years in the NFL, for me, is all about watching a living legend in Tom Brady have a well-deserved victory lap(s) across the faces of most of his competition, while the rest of the NFL fan base impatiently waits for Tom Brady/The Hoodie to retire so that their team has a chance at being memorable. I'm also looking forward to the sophomore slumps of Dak Prescott and Zek Elliot.

    Is there anything more perfect than Mike Brown getting paid by the Cavaliers to beat the Cavaliers in the NBA Finals as a coach of the opposing team?

    LeBron James hasn't looked bad at all in these Finals. But by his standards, he has looked absolutely gassed early in the games.

    Lots on the line this series for LeBron legacy-wise. Easy money is on Golden State, but that doesn't mitigate the importance of LeBron stepping up during these Finals. I'm rooting for the Cavs because my fiance is from Cleveland, but it's going to be a tall order for LeBron & crew to overcome. I have Golden State in 6.

    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.

    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.
  22. Anybody know anything about how fumbled balls / players going out of bounds works? It seems to me like the horizontal line indicating out of bounds isn't aligned properly. Anyone else curious about this?

    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.

    Chris Cornell used to tour yearly to one of the theatres that I used to work at. Never met him, but the guy always sold out. Like clockwork. Never failed. Last time he came through was on an acoustic tour. Every post show report I read from House Management, whose job it is to act as liaison to a booking, always said Cornell was the nicest dude. Too bad, man. Deep depression is a nightmare.

    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.
