  1. It's odd that N'Keal Harry would request to leave the team,...he typically has a strict no separation policy.

  2. On this whole, "I don't care" bit, I think a big part of the instinctive backlash to those who say that they don't really care about this or his sexuality or whatever, is "I don't care" is 100% a cover up for many people who really do wish to say "I don't want to hear about this" or "I don't like this." That may not be the people posting in this thread, I certainly hope it isn't, but there is absolutely a crowd that does use that statement that way, and you do kind of lump yourself in with that group by saying similar things. Up until recently, I had two employees who fell very hard into this

  4. This thread needs more John McKay: - "We didn’t tackle well today but we made up for it by not blocking" - "If you have everyone back from a team that lost ten games, the experience isn’t too important" - "Three or four plane crashes and we're in the playoffs."

  5. Figure things out in a couple weeks means going through his little flow chart to see if anything changes. It’s gonna be something like this: Do I have any leverage? No. Have I done enough to get us past the Championship round based on how much cap space I took from paying defenders or receivers? No. Am I sure I don’t have any leverage whatsoever? Yes. Have I already complained my way into a new deal two or even three years before the last deal that I signed was complete? Yes. Any leverage whatsoever? No. Am I the best choice for Jeopa

  6. I know there has been plenty of feisty and unpleasant disagreement on this topic, but kudos to @ET80and the mods for keeping it flowing. It's been informative, eye opening and a big win for treating posters like adults. Without that, we wouldn't have got to read about of the personal stories here which were so beautifully expressed.

  7. I don’t post much outside of the Lions forum. But I feel compelled to add my two cents. I am gay. The words “gay”, “homosexual”, gay slurs were not used in my household growing up. I had no idea what it was I was feeling or that there were others like me. I knew at a young age that I was different. I felt about the same sex as I was taught I was supposed to feel about the opposite sex. This is very confusing for a child. I learned about how people who were different were sent to institutions and even killed. I was so scared to admit to myself, let alone to others, what I was experiencing

  8. I think we could have a thread made up of only Vince Lombardi quotes... The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary. Winning is habit. Unfortunately, so is losing. Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence. Winning is not everything, but wanting to win is. I think these transcend football.

  9. I was just thinking about the 1998 NFC Championship. I had rewatched the entire broadcast a few days ago. Everyone knows about the Gary Anderson missed kick. After I had finished watching the game again, I was thinking to myself that in the eyes of NFL history Gary seems to get a lot of heat for missing that kick. But if you watch the game the Vikings even after that miss allowed the Falcons to drive down the field for a touchdown, kneeled to go to overtime, and had two drives in overtime themselves where they failed to move the ball past midfield, and had to punt twice. It's just weird that G

  13. The only logical answer is pretty damning for both the WFT and NFL. The only reason you don't want a written report is if what is known is so bad, it makes the punishment look like a joke. If the report corroborates what has been reported about insiders being allowed special access to photo shoots without knowledge of the cheerleaders, and then the "dates".....it's a firestorm to have on paper. It also makes having Snyder remain as owner totally nuclear in terms of PR. On the other hand, if WFT did nothing wrong as an org, there's no way they take this penalty lying down. T

  14. Nah, now when people say Giannis Antetokounmpo, they can just say "legend." Better resume than Jordan and LeBron at age 26. People need to appreciate him now, enough slander. LeBron and KD had to leave their franchises to win that title. This man didn't. He won it with Khris Middleton, a man he went 15-67 with. He quelled all the nonsense with a 50 burger to clinch his first title. He posted 35/10/5 on 60% in his first Finals. He joined Michael and Hakeem in the annals of history as the only players ever with MVPs, DPOY and Finals MVP. He lifted a city that nobody wanted to play in to hei

  17. PSA: The draft is set to end tomorrow night. On Monday morning, any starting roster spots still vacant will be auto-drafted using the Season 21 Draft as a Big Board (accounting for need). After this is done, rosters will be moved to the Main Thread, and first-come first-serve Free Agency will open. Thus, you should be certain to have all of your remaining picks in by the end of the day tomorrow. Also the OP has all game dates listed, now. Week 1 is Wednesday! Huzzah! Thus, all changes to team identity/stadium settings for the season (as well as sliders/lineup changes for Week 1 specifica

  20. I was hit by a drunk driver 2 days ago. My car is f'd up and my wife and I are seeing a doctor to help with the pain we are in. Drunk driver is also getting sued. It's not fun getting hit by a car. If the guy wants to drive like a tool then he deserved to be chased down and arrested. So many places you can drive your car and test it out without endangering other people lives.

STOP BELITTLING OTHERS. BE COOL. Earlier today, the next wrinkle in the Aaron Rodgers saga broke, as Aaron Rodgers reportedly had turned down an extension that would've made him the highest paid player in the NFL. He already held out for minicamp, and it seems more and more likely with each passing day that Aaron Rodgers is serious about not wanting to return to the Packers. Keep this thread about Foot

  22. This is gonna go badly as a thread for sure. To put it bluntly, players blindly trust doctors until now. Suddenly everyone wants an opinion on something that quite frankly they don't understand. The vaccine is more than safe and not taking it will potentially jeopardize the football season for the team they play for. There's already evidence of reduced viral shedding and transmission among vaccinated people. The myocarditis risk is exceedingly low. Not getting the vaccine is choosing not to be a team player both figuratively and literally.

  28. This was all written before week 1 was posted, and is the only division I finished. 3 or 4 other teams of note I already went through as well. May or may not finish this whole thing anyway and just ignore week 1 results, but I don't know... this league moves fast and these took a lot longer than I thought.

Since this is an even number season, player performance is not the same unpredictable variable it is during odd seasons, making it much easier

  30. I think we are done with this topic for now. There has been very little discussion about the topic. All the discussion lately has been about forum administration or what someone did or didn’t say that might or might not be a rule violation. It’s very frustrating to have topics derailed by this garbage and it is why we have rules against public discussion of forum rules and administration.

  33. the problem with treating it this way is that that stupid individual choice also *decreases the vaccine's efficacy for everyone,* not to mention the increased possibility for more variants and the immediate threat it poses to immunocompromised people (and, for the time being, children under 12) who can't get the vaccine. it simply cannot be compartmentalized as individuals making a stupid choice, which is exactly why we require plenty of other vaccines.

  34. https://www.nfl.com/news/nfl-covid-19-outbreaks-unvaccinated-players-forfeit-cancelled-game Love the hard-line stance the league is taking. Let teams be responsible for who they employ. This will hopefully encourage vaccine-resistant players to recognize their jobs are at SERIOUS risk now if they fail to protect themselves on the rest of society. Guilty team would record a loss and have financial penalties. It makes total sense to do it this way. Well done, NFL.

  42. Is he Bill Belichick? No. But he's not Adam Gase either. He has his flaws, but they are competitive every season (even if it's only making the playoffs every other year), and can make a run, especially this year. People complain about how he's defensive-minded, but guess what keeps them in games every year? It's the defense. Everybody talks about how Kyle Shanahan is a wunderkind...but his teams have won 6 or less games 3 out of 4 years. Zim has never won less than 7. McVay has done a pretty good job and has never won less than 9, but he's also been loaded defensively with talent,

  43. Yeah absolutely. But that's human nature. Most people don't react well to being told that what they just said was insensitive. We can all try to be more open minded but its also on those who claim to hold the moral and intellectual high ground to not abdicate responsibility for fostering a more constructive conversation on these issues just because its more satisfying to tell someone they are wrong. Whenever I see someone overzealously going off on the internet about some phraseology I assume they are just scratching that itch to correct and virtue signal, not actually trying to make a

Special thanks to the three of you who have shared very personal experiences here. I won't name you because I'm too lazy to go back and find the name that I can't remember. and now for levity I care about other people's sex lives.

  45. If you have never said "I don't care," why do you feel so attacked by what people are saying about those who say "I don't care"? I don't tend to take offense to people saying that everyone should stop saying things that I don't say. You also should really stop using quotes incorrectly. It's again just more of you playing victim, acting like people have said things to you that they have not. You don't want to quote people and cause drama, but you do love to fake quote people.
