    Pats Draft Rd.1/15: QB Mac McCorkle Jones

    Would love to know if Fields and Jones were both there at 15, if the same pick happens. I guess so?

    Pats QB Options

    I wonder if this (draft runup/gamesmanship) is fun for Belichick. I could see him loving this, playing high-stakes poker with other teams–or absolutely despising it.

    MLS 2021: On a scale of 1-10, my baby's 26

    One thing I often think about, when it comes to expanding predictable revenue opportunities, are competitions that have not been dreamed up yet. Instead of trying to do more with the clubs, what about a recurring all-star tournament based on the leagues themselves? You could assemble all-star...
