  1. As the election is over and today is the day it truly begins, let's move this to a new area. Incidentally, Trump supporters seem to be very low-energy. Not willing to come out and support him the way Obama supporters were. Sad! https://twitter.com/bubbaprog/status/822470348725698561

    '18-'19 NBA Season Thread

    That was a great game and a very good series in general. I don't know what the Warriors are going to do next year. KD is 100% not playing and now Klay is out for most of the year too. Klay will probably re-sign, and KD might even decide to stay a year to rehab, but that'd mean 60 million or so would be going to two players that aren't playing. Warrior aren't the West favorites IMO, but I'm not really sure who is. To me, this upped the price for AD to the Lakers since him + LeBron is definitely a contender in a way they weren't with a fully loaded Warriors looming.

    Eagles give Carson Wentz a bunch of money

    Turns out the contract isn't nearly as guaranteed as first reported. I like this way more for philly now but it seems like a dumb move for wentz.

    Historical QB Rankings

    Like RZ has said, McNabb's career includes the washed-up portion while Dalton hasn't yet. The list will bias towards currently active players.

    Jets jetsing

    He was a first rounder but he's done nothing in his career. I get the gamble by the jets but I don't think he'd be worth much more than that.

    Best Defensive Player of the Decade

    Yeah but did any of them have the peak of #Petermania? The star that shines brightest burns fastest.

    Alliance Of American Football

    Its the only explanation that makes sense. There's no way someone could be that dumb to believe that much in a league to pay that kind of money and then just give up completely after a few weeks.

    20-20-20 (technically 21 assists) for Westbrook tonight. Literally only done once ever, by wilt. Ridiculous.

    Best Defensive Player of the Decade

    I'd go with Watt but he has the advantage of starting early in the decade. Its weird how all-decade teams are dependent on timing. Thomas is/was fantastic but those Watt peak years were absurd. He was robbed of that MVP. That being said, I suspect in hindsight we will look at Aaron Donald as a better player. He just doesn't have the time yet.

    If there's one piece of info I'll take away from this series, it's the knowledge that the emoji is brunell.

    Jets sign Leveon Bell 4 years 52mil

    That seems untrue. And of course if Le'Veon signed the deal and was fine he wouldn't have been cut after one year. But what if he had a career-ending injury? Can't imagine the Steelers pay 10 million out then. If "rolling guarantees" are truly guaranteed, then the Steelers would've paid them as a signing bonus or a true guarentee if that's what it took to get him. And the same situation is true with playing last year. If you could guarantee him that he would have a great year, stay healthy, and be in-demand after playing on the franchise tag, I'm sure he would've played without a doubt. He was more concerned about being protected if the worst-case scenario happened. You can say that you don't agree with him playing it safe, but at the end of the day if he destroys his leg on the first play of his first game now, he gets 25 million. If that happened under the franchise tag, he would've gotten 14.5 million. If that happened after signing the Steeler's deal he gets 10 million. He wanted to make sure that he got as much money locked away as possible for the worst case scenario. Hard to say he made the wrong decision from that perspective. And before you mention Ryan Shazier as an example of the Steelers "taking care of their own" or whatever, keeping him around is half a million per year, not even close to the cost of paying to keep an unable to play Le'Veon. And honesty, seeing Shazier get hurt and lose out on a massive contract the way he did probably had a role in Bell's decision.

    Jets sign Leveon Bell 4 years 52mil

    Rolling guaranteed = guaranteed if you're on the roster on a certain date = not actually guaranteed. If a team can cut a player to avoid paying a guarantee, that isnt guaranteed.

    Jets sign Leveon Bell 4 years 52mil

    The Steelers only offered 10 million guaranteed. Yeah he would've made more money if he played out the tag and had a great, injury-free year, but he could've obliterated his knee week 1 and made 15 million less than he gets from this deal if the exact same thing happens https://www.sbnation.com/nfl/2018/7/18/17585956/leveon-bell-contract-steelers-offer-guaranteed-money-free-agency

    Jets sign Leveon Bell 4 years 52mil

    He got triple the guaranteed money the Steelers offered. That seems like it worked out.
