    Re: The NFL Thread

    I'd miss it too. I'm not boycotting because it doesn't suit my rooting interests in the least at this point. It would be completely unhelpful, it's more important to show that NFL can continue to thrive right now in the face of all this conservative criticism. When they discuss the loss of viewership right now and reference the anthem kneeling, it's about those who don't support them, not those who do. If I boycotted, I'd feed more into that narrative.

    But I can be plenty militant when I want to be, if there is a true call for a boycott to show our might on the other side, I will do so at that time. I think even doing it just one or two weekends with a visible call for it so that the origins are recognized by the media, where viewership and ad sales tanked significantly, would send a message.

    Kaepernick's lawyer approaches the bench and says:
    "Your honor. During the 2017/18 NFL season, the Miami Dolphins hired and played Jay Cutler, the Houston Texans lost Deshaun Watson and played a guy nobody even remembers, and the Denver Broncos played Paxton Lynch for a couple of games, and they NEVER even called Mr. Kaepernick.
    And they DID NOT COLLUDE!!!????"

    Case over.

    Re: The NFL Thread

    Aaron Rodgers got hurt, and the Packers played someone who set a record for most passes at home in a year with no touchdown passes? Who couldn't even win the backup job this year against someone who couldn't keep the job for the 0-16 Browns last year?

    Speaking of Rodgers, he got his extension. 4 years, $134 million. I'm glad to keep him, but man I wish we could have taken even a bit of that money and used it elsewhere. Oh well, better to spend that one of the best ever, then the $30 million Atlanta spent on Matt Ryan who only had one really great year I guess.

    If you're not keeping track of today's news, Jon Gruden is not endearing himself to Raider Nation. "Destroying the team" is the phrase I've seen most often.

    It didn't seem like a great hire at the time to me, and it sure doesn't look like it now. The Raiders sure look like they will be very bad this year...oh well, that way they can start fresh in Vegas right?

    Re: The NFL Thread

    Just a few thoughts to catch up:

    I think Chuckie going back to the Raiders is genius.

    ::

    Aaron Rodgers is guaranteed $100 million with $80 million of it reaching him by early next year. I think the money professional athletes make is disgusting. And, considering the fact that many public school teachers have to buy their classes supplies, it might even be immoral.

    ::

    Colin Kaepernick not even working as a backup QB in the NFL is just... well, it's just effed up.
    Oh Grigor. You silly man.

    In order:
    Not genius. Chuckie is a regular coach. One SB (yes, one more than plenty of guys) but to believe that he will bring the Raiders back to prominence is wishful thinking.
    -------
    Agree. But remember, is all about winning. Winning is all. Winning, winning, winning. When the Packers win, every single rundown school in Wisconsin feels better. Even if they don't have heating in the class room.
    ----
    Agree. And I hope when he wins his collusion case against the NFL he gets enough money to buy his own team.
    -----
    Will a WHITE NFL player ever take a knee? Simply because of MORALITY?

    I’m not a lawyer, but can’t Colin Kaepernick just show up to court with this tweet and win his case against the NFL?

    He had a great defense, and some very good assistant coaches - three future head coaches, Mike Tomlin, Jay Gruden, and Raheem Morris - plus Monte Kiffin, one of the greatest defensive coaches of all time. In retrospect we may have given him too much credit. Maybe his biggest help was that they played his former team in the Super Bowl.

    He also didn't form or truly shape that Superbowl winning Tampa Bay team to the point that if the majority of the team that won the SB talks in glowing terms about a coach it is always Tony Dungy and never Gruden. We've seen it time and time again over the years. They know who built their SB team just like the rest of us. Chucky was always given too much credit.

    I was dumb enough to think this would be the one Thursday game this year that wasn't that bad. This has been an error filled mess.
