    Ivy Leaguers are a self tooting horn. Kind of ironic that a former football player from Harvard could be that wrong as you say. A few years ago a Jewish man who had been a contract English prof at Yale left a comment on a Sailer column about how Yale football players were some of his best students and the worst were the girls, it was an interesting bit of info. Anyway Browns deserve Watson

    The Browns may end up being glad they haven't traded Baker. Watson is so damaged and only getting more damaged in spite of how badly the league and the DWFs want him to play. Of course, Mayfield may not want to play for the Browns again. But if he isn't traded and wants to collect those fat paychecks, he most likely will.

    The NFL is reportedly looking to argue that Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson should receive a “significant” suspension amid 26 active lawsuits alleging sexual misconduct. The Washington Post reports the league will likely seek a one-year suspension for Watson for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy. The NFL, who has been investigating the claims of sexual misconduct during massage therapy sessions, is preparing to present its findings to Sue L. Robinson. Robinson, a former U.S. district judge, is the disciplinary officer appointed by the league and NFLPA, per the Post. https://www.outkick.com/nfl-pushing-for-significant-suspension-for-browns-qb-deshaun-watson/

    I am hoping for a 2 year ban. The Browns structured his guaranteed salary with the thought that a 1 year ban may happen so he's only getting $1 million for 2022 and than the ridiculous $46 million for 2023. I'd love to see this blow up in the Browns face and that of their GM. Again Berry the black GM was the one who pushed for this all to happen.

    We're getting close to finding out what the NFL recommends for Watson, and whether the players union will be able to do anything about it if it's a long suspension:

    The Wall Street Journal's Andrew Beaton reports that the NFL will push for "an indefinite suspension that would last no shorter than one year" for Deshaun Watson.
    Watson's hearing with the NFL will begin on Tuesday, and ultimate clarity may finally be coming for how we should proceed as fantasy managers with Browns players this season. All of the recent reporting we've seen has pointed to the NFL wanting Watson to be gone for at least a year. It sure sounds like the NFLPA is ready to fight a Watson suspension of any real length, so appeals seem likely no matter the initial decision. The momentum at this time definitely seems to be leading to an enormous personal conduct policy suspension for Watson.

    In my opinion it's all about the everything evil is good an good is evil. We see it all over in everything from Disney Grooming to Barbie Dolls. From music to movie and sports. They want to make the bad guys
    the ones that people look up to. Watson is talented but it's sure stupidity to pay this guy a fortune when we all know the highly likely chance of him screwing up again and again. See the Tom Iron Rule.

    Still waiting for the genius gm Andrew Berry to come under fire. His black privilege has been protecting him so far in his total mismanagement of the qb position. Everyone is blaming Haslem but Berry’s been the one who orchestrated this debacle. All Haslam does is sign the checks
