    USFL to return in spring 2022

    So lets pull on this JV thread a little. What if each team was affiliated with an NFL team. Used their facilities etc etc. The JV (lets call it that) would play an abbreviated game at the same location as the NFL team on game day. Suppose the JV game kicks off at 9am, lasts 2 hrs of real...

    Niners Trade for #3 Pick

    Similar to what WAS gave up for RGIII. 1st, 3rd, 1st, 1st. I hope this works out a little better.

    Use even the most tangential connection to share an anecdote, John Bagley stories preferred

    Interesting story about Sabonis prior to being in the NBA. He was getting rehab from the Trailblazers prior to the Olympics and John Thompson was a little upset. https://www.latimes.com/archives/la-xpm-1988-06-10-sp-5242-story.html

    NFL In-season News and Transactions

    I think the only reason that it is a story is that shortly thereafter he got fabulously de-cleated. Had that not happened, it would have remained a TikTok thing only.

    Sox Officially Sever Ties With Lowell Spinners (With a Caveat)

    Perhaps, but MLB is also offering a league for non draft-eligible players as well. I am not sure where the Cape fits in with official MLB sanctioned leagues for everyone post-high school and beyond.

    Sox Officially Sever Ties With Lowell Spinners (With a Caveat)

    Pretty much, and that essentially kills the Cape League.

    Frederick Keys A-Carolina League Orioles are the 6th invitee to this crap Draft League. Keys were in the top 60 in average attendance across all of MiLB.

    MLB to launch league for Draft prospects

    Looks like MLB has that covered as well..... https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/mlb-continues-minor-league-overhaul-with-new-draft-league-and-repurposing-of-pioneer-league/ The important part of the article: The Draft League's creation comes months after MLB repurposed the Appalachian League...

    Beer Leagues, Gear, and other Non-Pro Related Items

    The adult league I schedule referees for started again last night. Lots of rules though indications are everything went well on Sunday. I was surprised to see so many teams coming back. I am in the midst of giving our referee assignments and the Officials seem a little more hesitant than the...

    2020 Football Team: A Capital Scandal

    I think the investigation the NFL is referencing is the on-going one started by Snyder when the first story came out. The lawyer was referred to the Redskins by NFL HQ. I do not believe there are parallel investigations.

    Washington Football Team Name Change

    This is 100% true. It is as if there is a book on how to do the right thing and they always seem to do the opposite.

    Washington Football Team Name Change

    So thoughts on this position from a member of the Osage Nation.... ***** The decision to use Football Team was “worse than doing nothing,” said Louis Gray, a member of the Osage Nation and former president of Tulsa Indian Coalition Against Racism. He believes the franchise is “extending the...

    2020 Football Team: A Capital Scandal

    \ Sure - being in DC I have seen Snyder make similar moves (and I never once said she was unqualified). There is an issue (name, minorities in the FO, etc) and within an extremely short period of time we get a new hire, a new policy, a new program. Seems a little too convenient that he...

    2020 Football Team: A Capital Scandal

    The rush to "make things right" begins. She has been around DC for quite some time, well qualified I guess. Not quite sure what her job will be, hopefully she picks someone good for the radio calls.

    Washington Football Team Name Change

    My apologies if I implied that they were related. Perhaps derivation was the wrong word to use. However, the confusion between the two leads to trouble. and I ran across this today..... https://t.co/qaFCq7yU0A?amp=1 This is an article in the Washington Post regarding changing the Texas...

    Washington Football Team Name Change

    Former season ticket holder here (keep the jokes to yourself please). Like many things that one grows up with, you do not give it a second thought. I was 5 and watched football with my father; his team was the Redskins and so was mine. I never gave it a thought that the term meant anything...
