  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

    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.

    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.

    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

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

    '18-'19 NBA Season Thread

    I thought LeBron would be good enough to get them into the playoffs (and he probably still would've if he didn't be get hurt). That being said, "the lakers won't make the playoffs" was definitely out there before the season among some of the experts. Magic and Pelinka have been a disaster running the team (besides Lebron who clearly didn't need convincing), and when you hear that Jerry West wanted to come back and Jeannie chose Magic instead, that's a really bitter pill to swallow.

    Patriots Get Happy Ending

    Kraft is denying it all, which is a bold move when they claim they have video.

    Biggest Douchewad in the NFL?

    Tough call between Vontaze and Jerry, but I went with the former. Though I would've gone with Snyder or Spanos or even Goodell if those were there.

    The offseason is done. Be depressed about Hayward here.

    '08 Steelers were up until 8AM the night before XLIII

    Just because you won't be at 100% doesn't mean you will literally fall apart. Obviously it wasn't smart of them, but its not absurd or anything.

    Eagles Expected to Franchise Tag QB Foles

    I think that would backfire for philly.

    Julius Peppers hangs 'em up

    It's pretty amazing how long he was able to be a good player. He was still really good in Green Bay and still pretty decent even these last few years in Carolina.

    Absolutely horrendous trade for the Knicks. They're probably getting the Dallas 2021 and 2023 picks but unless they don't expect Porzingis to recover, thats just an awful return.

    Bware's guy is actually a selfish cunt?

    I'd imagine wentz feels a lot of pressure being the franchise guy when the backup won the super bowl. No too surprising that'd he'd push back against Foles (and this recent run probably didn't help). However, he's a young guy and they have a good coach so I bet they will work this out.
