Per the article, Maryland doesn't have one either. My guess is that they don't provide final copies of the agreement to public universities subject to public records/freedom of information laws that could lead to the contract being disclosed. I don't know the various state laws to know whether...
There was a reference in the initial ESPN story that Noel filed the lawsuit after Paul filed a grievance claiming that Noel hadn't paid $100K in commission on his most recent contract. Which both goes to the idea that Paul likely has a different story and gives some insight into why Noel pulled...
"Chelsea rent boy" has been an unfortunately standard chant against Chelsea and its players for years (from fans of many other clubs). Much like the Mexican MNT chant, it's going to take league/administrative penalties to change. We'll see if the PL does anything about it.
Seeing reports now that Newcastle and Arsenal have agreed on a fee somewhere in that neighborhood (I've seen one place say 25M and another "in excess of 20M"). They've apparently moved on to personal terms and a medical. So if its going to happen, it's going to happen in the next few days.
All Other PL Owners: [make various potentially transformative deals]
Mike Ashley: [continues to drink his beer]

Lynden Gooch has been named to the player leadership team at League One stalwarts Sunderland.
The leadership team consists of the first-team captain, first-team vice captain, both club captains, Gooch, and another guy.
I think Hoppe's best use would be as a second striker in a formation with 2 at the top. So I think he's valuable because he could give us another way to play, but he doesn't seem like the answer at the top of a 4-3-3.
This also highlights how well the rest of the team did to get silver. The team leader stepped back during the competition because she was (understandably!) worried that she was going to end up getting dragged out on a stretcher. It had to to be enormously difficult to keep those thoughts out of...
It’s so close that it actually shouldn’t matter. Although the “we are going to review the entire program” part is troubling, raising as it does the possibility that there is a Day the Clown Cried homage or something in there.
Watching Granada-Qatar during the non-rain delay. Qatar scored when a striker crashed into the keeper on an aerial challenge, fouling him. Subsequent replays showed that the striker also used his hand to knock the ball past the keeper. VAR pinged the ref, who stared fixedly at the freeze frame...
Guest, I have a big favor to ask you. We've been working very hard to establish ourselves on social media. If you like/follow our pages it would be a HUGE help to us.
