    YES (known affectionately by some as Al-Yankzeera) proclaimed the Yanks the team to beat now that Judge can pinch run and play the field.

    So Nebraska lost to the Trojans. No surprise, until I found out the Trojans were Troy, not USC.

    Josh Gordon to be cut or traded or something. Cleveland signaling that he’d be available or else they’ll release him on Monday.

    Plus, “Judge is the Yankees’ team leader even though he’s only a sophomore” now. O’Brien is a shill, but YES is like an entire brothel.

    Something I was pondering while awaiting the most important game in Jacksonville Jaguars history: I always enjoy reading about the latest awful opinion from the local media, but I’ve noticed a trend on other boards and in the twitter replies. Take Felger and Mazz going after Van Noy for no reason. The majority of the responses are along the lines of “WTF is wrong with these guys?” but there is always someone who says “By calling attention to it, you’re giving them what they want: More attention.”

    I’m not sure if these people honestly believe this or if they are just being killjoys, but what people post on message boards or on twitter is really making a difference for a radio show, TV show or writer. I can’t imagine Jim Murray saying something dumb and inflammatory and feeling like he’s accomplished something because there’s a 3 page thread about it on Patsfans or SOSH. How does that help them? He’s already said it. People already watched or listened to the show. Does discussing it afterwards make any difference?

    I know the old Stern saying that people who hate your show will listen more than the people who enjoy it (or something like that), but that was pre-internet. If I’m not listening to Bertrand, Orwayd, or Felger, I can still find out what they’ve said without tuning in. I just don’t see the point in not addressing it or pretending it didn’t happen when one of the mediots does something worth criticizing.

    I think the Felger JV team like Murray, jones, Johnston would care more about what message boards have to say than Felger or Mazz.

    Felger, Mazz and the whole station have found negativity sells. Felger has spent the last 6 months twisting anything from Brady or B.B. into controversy. I don’t think the 2 of them care what anyone has to say until the ratings drop.

    The Steelers sucking this year is going to be great. Hopefully they can work in a QB controversy to top things off.

    Come back, Regular Brian.

    My agenda is truth.

    Vrabel has built himself quite a boiler there in Tennessee.

    To be fair, were I to live at all near Hattie B’s Hot Chicken, I’d weigh 300lbs.

    Is Vrabel wearing a tent? Jesus, eat a salad.

    It only took one and a half games for Tannehill to get Amendola killed.

    INT and fumble by Jets lead to two MIA TDs. 14-0.

    Breer coming up with Diabeetle. What are the odds he has one original thought. Smart money is on none.

    “Well, Marc, they’ll either re-sign Britt or they won’t. And it could happen this week, sometime in the future, or maybe not at all. It bears watching.”

    This Pitt-KC game is something else. Reid vs. Tomlin. Who ever fucks up less in the final 2 minutes will win :lol:

    So Mahomes appears to be legitimately good. If the Jets had drafted him instead of Adams and not fucked him up, they wouldn’t have had to move up for Darnold and could have had the #6 overall pick and 3 additional 2nd round picks in 2018.

    The Jets would have fucked him up. They will also fuck up Darnold.

    The Browns kicker just kicked himself out of a job in record time.

    The Roughing call on board favorite Clay Matthews that negated the clinching INT was pretty farcical.

    The Eagles’ radio announcers were openly mocking Fitzmagic at the start of the game, apparently forgetting that their shitty quarterback caught lightning in a bottle to win the Soupey last year. On the plus side, they seem to think once Wentz is back (maybe next week) it’ll be just time to PTT. I’ve never seen such optimism from more miserable pieces of shit. I hope they go 1-15.
