    Senators traded Hoffman this morning; not much of a return.  Strange backstory to it all.

    He got traded twice, first to the Sharks then to the Panthers.  Weird shit.  The fiance seems nice

    On May 4, Melinda Karlsson filed an order of protection against Monika Caryk, Hoffman’s fianceé, alleging that she harassed the Karlssons online. That harassment included remarks about the death of their child, who was stillborn in March, via comments on Melinda Karlsson’s Instagram account under a pseudonym.

    “Monika Caryk has uttered numerous statements wishing my unborn child dead … uttered that she wished I was dead and that someone should ‘take out’ my husband’s legs to end his career,” the document said, according to media reports.

    For the people looking for a World Cup podcast, ESPN FC has a bunch. ESPN Radio was promoting Caught Offside all weekend, I noticed. Haven’t listened, but in the past ESPN’s soccer has been well regarded in the past.

    Come back, Regular Brian.

    I also noticed ads for Simmons’ Courtside on HBO’s debut tonight. 11 days after a sweep by the defending champion and two days before the draft with LeBron’s free agency coming up. Good luck with that.

    So disturbing.  :ohmy: :blink: How can anyone be that cruel and evil?

    And what on earth could the backstory to this be?

    On the Andrew Luck stuff from last night’s thread. The media went all in on Luck being the next big thing. They will twist and abuse logic/reality to cover themselves. I loved King saying Luck was “doing things that had never been seen before in his pro day”.

    Crazy talk.

    Technically correct, he was being a huge fucking dork

    Wasn’t there at least some debate about Luck/RG3 being the first pick?  Didn’t happen w/LeBron, even in a draft with multiple future hall of famers

    Columbia played that match down a guy after a red card 3 minutes in.  Hopefully that finished off the Mickelson heart attach victims as he got the card with a hand ball in front of the goal.

    Classic media speak that nobody but us and a few others really pay attention to. Bertie and others like saying stuff like that, or that Luck can “make all the throws”.

    Really Bert? Can you tell us what all the throws are?

    #125711

    I think most if not all here said they’re out on Leonard for multiple reasons (injury, forced his way out at SA, one-year rental, potential comp too high, want to see Brown and Tatum get the opp to develop together, etc.). Under what criteria might you be in on Leonard?

    Hoffman and his fiance denied everything. Hired a lawyer to try to coordinate with the victim on a third-party investigation.

    “Can make all the throws” was a huge pre-draft selling point on Bledsoe,  IIRC.  Little did they know he couldn’t loft a screen pass.

    This guy was all about taking Milicic over Lebron.  But in general there wasn’t much if any debate.

    With Luck, it was pretty unanimous among scouts, the entire 2011 season was Suck For Luck.

    If the price was some combo of Smart/Morris/Sac pick/Yabusele etc.  None of the core pieces.  What are people looking for thursday? Mushmouth Bradford was pimping Rozier/Sac pick for Orlando’s pick (assuming Bamba is available) I’ve seen a few mocks that have Orlando taking Trae Young, and if that’s the case I’d do the deal if I were them.  Hopefully DiVincenzo is there at 27
