    Surprisingly his wife is the daughter of a former white NBA player! He married a black lady and his daughter is mixed. She ended up with Haskins somehow.

    I apologize for venting, Don. You’re correct, it isn’t productive. Maybe that’s why I only have 300 posts lol self restraint . And B#*LS#*T, I don’t only post negative crap. I always try to be positive in Happy Hour thread. Whatever though, I will always visit this site whether I’m involved in the discussion or not.
    Thank you.

    Jesus. Imagine being a White NBA player. Make millions, in a position to inspire White kids to get good at basketball, and then decide to oil-drill.

    It's his personal business, for some reason I don't think the country is filled with White kids who decided not to play basketball because some White player in the NBA had a Black gf or wife, just as all the Black players with White gfs doesn't lessen the enthusiasm for the sport among Black kids.

    Let's get back on topic, this is an NFL thread.

    No worries. It was another poster I was mostly aiming my criticism at, not you.

    The No Flu League announced they will give teams a forfeit loss if a team is unable to play due to a corona outbreak that includes an unvaccinated player. They will also fine the franchise for the lost television and ticket revenue.

    If the outbreak is among vaccinated players, the penalties won't apply.

    Vaccinated players are tested once every two weeks. Unvaccinated players are tested every day, forbidden to leave their lockdown bubble (no interaction with family or friends during season). They also must wear masks (the cloth strips over your mouth and nose that magically keep covid from coming out, but do not keep it from coming in) during practices. A vaccinated player testing positive may return after two negative tests 24 hours apart if he is asymptomatic. An unvaccinated player testing positive has a mandatory ten-day removal from all activities. "Symptoms" are not clearly defined. There's also no word on these daily tests, which I assume are PCRs, and how many cycles they'll use (40, 28, another number, or a random number on any given week). If an unvaccinated player tests positive, his teammates won't be scheduled to be tested at all if they're vaxxed until their regular 2-week interval. Obviously, the "spread" of the deadly flu is not the concern here.

    This new punitive ruling is meant to bully players into conformity and rally the DWF fans around the holy Science. The NFL did not have any games last year that were unable to be rescheduled. IIRC, they bent the rules to get the Ravens out of a bad deal. Ultimately, this disaster hypothetical did not happen last year WITHOUT the vaccine salvation. The NFL doesn't intend for this to really happen, as it would invite a litany of lawsuits. Every unvaxxed player cut will have a puncher's chance at a Kaepernick-level payout.

    Cole Beasley is on the firing line, obviously. He has not acquitted himself particularly well on social media after taking a noble stand. He engages in bad faith arguments and has not helped his cause after initially winning respect. But if Cole tests positive and has to sit for two games, the rest of his vaxxed WR group might not be out at all, even if they're huffing and puffing their germs all around town.

    Smart man. Don't choose money or this world over that poison. You can't take it with you.

    Sports has gone full on politial extereme leftist communist views. There is no middle or other side. I hope this doesn't happen to college sports too but
    seeing how they are mandating these vac. shots for everyone it doesn't look good. What a clown world.

    I just want football to start and hit the mute button. I can't stand the non stop forcing their commie views down our throats.

    If enough players and coaches stand up against the draconian policies, maybe even several entire teams along with a lawsuit or three, the NFL would back down. But it's unlikely to happen because the lure of materialism, greed and selfishness is the dominant ethos of pro sports. Cole Beasley and DeAndre Hopkins are the only players to oppose the policies so far, and Beasley is quite disposable in the eyes of the NFL.

    Tim Dwight was easily one of the fastest football players ever, probably top five. Great runner too, shifty and elusive as can be. But of course greatly underused as a receiver, and really he could have been a tremendous third down scatback too. But his NFL career -- 10 years, 5 different teams -- ended with just 194 total receptions and 53 rushes.

    He really came on during the second half of his sophomore NFL season in 1999 when he was with the Falcons, that memorable year in which White WRs emerged left and right only to quickly be smashed down the following season, and led the league with a remarkable average of 20.9 yards per catch, 32/669 and 7 TDs. For his efforts he was demoted the next year. Dwight was a great punt and kickoff returner but should have been so much more.

    Really hope more players like Cole Beasley & DeAndre Hopkins speak up to the marxist NFL! Cole said there were many more like him ; just not speaking out.

    Yes indeed Don! Tim Dwight was one of my all time favorites!

    This is a cool article....elite QB's Josh Allen & Joe Burrow destined to become the NFL's Best QB's for the next 10 years(along w Justin Herbert & Mahomes) ...this takes them to another level Joe Burrow is also one of the most mentally/physically tough QB's you will ever see! Gruesome knee injury...had rehabbed/recovering/training a lot quicker than the average QB. Hopefully revamped Bengals O-Line holds up!

    This technology could give Bills QB Josh Allen and Bengals QB Joe Burrow a big boost in their NFL careers

    Do you know that from personal experience, or because you were a national spelling bee champion in the late 1970s?

    Four years in the infantry gave me a good grounding in Ebonics. And I was always the last male standing in our class spelling bees. :campeon:

    I was darn good at spelling myself, still am. But no way can I compete with the Indians who win the national spelling bee every year. Or is it Chinese kids? Undoubtedly both.

    Here’s a “nearly barfed in my shirt moment”

    It was an afternoon of Steeler highlights on the NFL network.
    I watched a good bit of it.
    Then a commercial ran...

    The NFL is.....gay
    The NFL is.....lesbian
    The NFL is...queer
    The NFL is....other dumb ****, etc, etc

    No joke. Anyone else see this woke crap?

    Watching Lambert slam Harris to the ground after taunting Roy Gerela in SBX had me psyched up......Seeing that commercial made me turn it off and grab a beverage.

    Rocky B, I don't have the NFL Network, but the commercial has been on other networks. I can't remember which one, probably FOX being I don't watch much TV anymore. Made me sick as well. Amazing the NFL continues to do things to make their ratings drop.
    Admittedly, I was a Cowboys fan in those days, I went back and watched the highlight of Lambert slamming Harris. Not a wise thing for Harris to do surrounded by the Steelers. Harris normally, was smarter than that.
    I always enjoy going back in time to watch those classic Steeler/Cowboy games, even though Pittsburgh always got the best of Dallas. Where did those days go? We are so far removed from then.

    Brian Hoyer of the Patriots won't be allowed to practice with the club because he has elected not to get the covid-19 shot making his chances of making the team almost impossible.
