What's the worst trade in NFL history?
Kings fan here wondering if it gets any worse than this.
Boogie to the Pelicans
2 minutes later: Julius Thomas is not getting traded to the Dolphins.
Great news if true, would hate to see Dola go. The players who take cuts to stay are the ones who value being there the most.
[Serious] Would NFL fans tolerate on-field/on-uniform advertising in exchange for a 100% un-interrupted broadcast and shorter games?
One of the biggest complaints NFL fans have is the sheer amount of commercial breaks during a standard NFL broadcast, so much so that the league is actively searching for ways to shorten commercial breaks and length of and streamlining games.... my question to you all is would you be okay of the NFL went full FIFA and changed their attitude towards advertising when it came to broadcasting games altogether.... 0 commercial breaks (excluding halftime), but have ads on the field of play (physical and through ads placed through computer graphics on the broadcast), and on player uniforms?
Where there used to be commercial breaks (Timeouts, stoppages of play..etc) will be filled with normal play review/game analysis/highlights from other games..etc) with the standard "brought to you by (x) advertiser".
Would you want that as a fan to avoid commercial interruptions? Do you think this is an actual course of action the NFL might ever consider? And if it were something that were to happen what would be the best and least-obtrusive way you think or would want to see it implemented?
Anything to get rid of the "real people not actors" chevy commercials.
To those complaining, Charles is a big funder of special Olympics. He has been in the special Olympics both as a participant and recently he was a key not speaker. He has continued funding. This is just a way to try and get other people to give 15k. Sure he give 15k and probably does, but if he can get people who wouldn't have given otherwise to raise 15k then that's 15k that goes to special Olympics that wouldn't have and that's awesome. Complaining about this is like complaining about ice bucket challenge. "Couldn't all those athletes just give to ALS and that raise more money?" Then it's announced that ice bucket challenge raised like 4x as much in one year as had ever been raised for that research. This is the same kinda thing. He is using his platform to raise awareness and get people who wouldn't normally donate to this cause to give their money. Jamaal Charles is a freaking good guy and this is an example of it.
What is the strangest thing to ever happen in an NFL game?
The security dude that was wanking himself while staring at the cheerleaders was pretty strange. And hilarious.
Seahawks need to seriously look at Ronald Leary, he's a monster and would help their line a lot. Not sure of his asking price though, he has a degenerative knee injury that should make him cheaper. Hasn't affected his play thus far though
For everyone who doesn't want to read:
Third degree domestic violence for beating up on a woman in a hotel room leaving her with bruises and scratches on the face
Well that's a career.
Describe your favorite NFL player in the shittest possible way and others try and guess him
He was born with glass bones and paper skin. Every morning he breaks his legs, and every afternoon he breaks his arms. At night, he lies awake in agony until the heart attacks put him to sleep.
