    NY trade deadline 2019

    My Yankees hatred had died down a bit over the years, now it's back, just like my Sox hatred spiked when they traded for my favorite player at the 2009 deadline and members here immediately started their Veruca impressions wanting more. There's some logic to it since Lindor has quietly turned...

    Would a lousy 2019 tarnish 2018 at all for you?

    Very much so, have a nap and a juice box. From the seats rooting for teams in long title droughts, joining Yankee fandom image wise isn't a look to aspire to.

    2019 Steelers: The Drama Continues

    Per the Hitchhiker's Guide and divorcees everywhere, AB is now in an SEP field. AB won't be able to shut up, and the lack of response from the Steelers will probably have a lot of people reevaluating their take on the whole sequence.

    GOAT - position by position

    Perils of the text format, tone of voice and inflection doesn't come through, gives a bit of a defensive vibe. And while yeah it was known from the start that not many people would agree with all or even a majority of your names, the vast majority of your names most posters seem to agree are at...

    Yeah after BB puts the Running Man/Fortress necklace on him to keep him on his best behavior.

    Yeah. I see some settling in bumps and bruises while they figure out what all they have and their strengths, but once they gel they should be a pretty mean football team.

    2019 NFL News & Transactions

    The Steelers are generally pretty reticent with the guaranteed money, but they also have a tendency to structure their contracts initially so that they intend for the player to play and receive most of the money. They're not all that prone to giving out contracts with huge headline grabbing big...

    2019 Patriots: Post-SB Roster Thread

    BB had been going after a couple more special team types, apparently Anthony Chickillo was courted by the Pats before signing back with the Steelers for 2 years, $8M total. Backup LB and core special teamer, said the Pats offered similar. So yeah you need some guys who are primarily teams...

    I've been mentally calling him Steamin Le'Veon Beamen for a while now. I'm gonna agree with you, though I think exacerbated is what you were going for. They definitely got their money's worth out of Brown prior to 2018 and for most of that season. Another big red flag to me as an old "you...

    Brown isn't the incredibly gifted physical specimen Moss or many other are/were. It was all hard work and fanatical drive that created him. How do you keep that from going off the rails if that's the way he's headed? And now that he's out of town we start hearing how he got special treatment...

    Brown wasn't a diva coming out of college, he was a 6th round pick with a chip on his shoulder who wasn't even guaranteed a helmet on game day, he and Emmanual Sanders were competing for a helmet a lot at the time. He was self motivated enough to work incredibly hard, to the point he was...

    2019 Steelers: The Drama Continues

    Not thrilled with the deal, but there is value in getting some closure and removing the distraction of watching the morph from diva to full blown T.O. level drama queen. Personally I think his odds of the Hall of Fame just took a major hit. Just hope that the Steeler's surprisingly long...

    Lot of people figured something was likely with Gilbert, Steelers have good line depth and continuity and several legit backups with potential to start. Matt Feiler will likely step into his spot, a backup who has started before. Gilbert has only played 12 games the last two years due to...

    2018-19 Offseason News, Rumors, Trades

    Yeah, I'm not a huge fan of how Bauer comports himself in general, and I love someone on here commenting that he's afflicted with resting bitch face, that's true. But he's nowhere near Schilling in any way shape or form. He's a little overly blunt and is just skewed enough he doesn't easily...

    2018 NFL Transactions & News

    There's debate about that because while they tagged him the second time he didn't play under it and get paid under it, though it appears to be almost a loophole because the verbiage talks of designating not paying. Most of what I've read in Steeler press/sites indicates it's not really worth...
