    What's Good?

    What's up TGP? I know it's been a hot minute. Last time I spoke with you all, life was dark and different. Since then. Life has changed for me dramatically. In January I will be starting with the Virginia State Police and living right outside VA Beach. I can't explain to you how excited and happy I am to be moving back to where I was raised and contributing to the community. I will be going with my gf of 3 years and my son who is a 120 LB Rottie and was honestly, one of the best investments I could ever make in my life. In the sports world I have become a pretty active person with Raiders Twitter. I am appearing on some podcasts for Raiders Beat. I am also in a FF league with Derek and David Carr. I know I haven't been around here much but I'm going to make a concentrated effort to be around more often. Have missed you fuckers.

    Where did you go? Your Ravens have an interesting squad. Just how many times do you plan on running the ball per game? Also. How is Jackson going to throw an accurate deep ball to Hollywood?

    Who improved most this offseason?

    Biased me says the Raiders. This roster went from the oldest in the NFL to one of the youngest in the span of about a year. Also, Josh Jacobs is the all purpose back that I have been waiting for. Say what you want about AB, but he's an elite talent on the outside and is only going to open things up for Tyrell, Renfrow, Moreau, Richard, Waller. If DC doesn't have success this year, then he is out the door and rightfully so. Unbiased me is going to go with the Jags. Adding Nick Foles after the absolute trainwreck of Blake Bortles is a serious upgrade. Them adding Josh Allen to that defensive front is complete madness. Their D was already good, Allen might put them over the top. Also adding Jawaan Taylor? If they were in any other division I would not care. But the AFCS is weak and I don't buy the Colts. I'd consider the Browns too, but the Ravens are the best team in that division. Adding Earl Thomas and Mark Ingram is just playing right into their way of doing things. Jackson can only improve as well.

    '18-'19 NBA Season Thread

    Lol... that team is going nowhere. CP3 is at the end of the road. The Bulls would have to give up most likely a lot of draft capital to make it work. Also. It involves them paying CP3 a lot of money and in the past decade... tell me what big name player they've shelled out big money for.

    '18-'19 NBA Season Thread

    Westbrook might be the better fit in D'Antoni's system. But.. when has D'Antoni's shit system won him anything meaningful in the playoffs? Rockets are a contender, but they could be a legitimate team if they could run more than vanilla half court sets when it matters in the playoffs. Teams take the Rockets out of their element when they slow the pace down. OKC is going to be stuck with CP3 unless some bottom feeder trash team with a lot of cap... like the Bulls/Kings/Grizzlies make an offer they can't refuse with young talent. The timing of that trade really was unfortunate for OKC but you got to do what you can with what you have.

    Do you ever feel like...

    What's up guys. I haven't been around as much lately. Life has just been busy. This is probably going to be a long post for the record... bear with me. I don't know what to say about this year in general. You look at the way the world is going and the division, stupidity, ignorance and hatred... it's everywhere. Everywhere I go, everywhere I look, it seems that things are providing for a dark future. Personally, I can say this has been the toughest year of my life. I've always been a distant person.. but I feel like someone or something is trying to keep me down for no apparent reason. Here's some things that have happened this year... - I finally got out of the military in Dec of last year. I got tired of their BS and broken promises. I went to state representatives and Senators and spoke with them of how my contract was not being honored in terms of benefits, pay, and reimbursement. I go the whole 'We will look into it, thank you for you concern' BS. Long story short. I said I wasn't showing up to any military functions until it was taken care of, I stopped drilling for 2 years. They gave me an other than honorable discharge which I expected and am w/e with. In my contract their is at least nearly 100k of money that they owe me, and now they are saying I owe them money. Like.. wtf. I did my time honorably the first 3 years, but enough is enough. Not getting paid for drilling, not being fed while at drill... I was losing money left and right. - My best friend of 15 years committed suicide. She was a sister to me. This girl was abandoned by her Russian parents and essentially left for dead on a Port Authority Dock. My family took her in. We went to school together, helped her with learning English.. you name it we did it. This past summer.. we went through all the BS it is anymore to get a passport. We got it so that she could meet her siblings who found her through the internet. She went there. She had just graduated from PSU with a nursing degree and started her job, but was fired because a supervisor said the only way she would gain more respect is if she slept with him essentially. She said fuck no, reported him and in the end they both were fired. She had a kid and her own place... so she applied everywhere. Ended up working with a gas company as a administrative person. Long hours away from her friends and especially her son. I hadn't heard or really seen much from her in a few days so I stopped by her house. Knocked on the door and there was nothing but her car was home. I figured she might be sleeping until I looked down and on the doormat was a suicide note. I work in law enforcement so I called some people before going in and we then walked in and she was on the floor. I've never felt so sick in my life. I've never felt so empty... there simply isn't words. -In the past two months. I have been in two car accidents that have not been my fault. The first one a guy blew a stop sign and hit and spun me at 55 mph. I went to the hospital and they said I had a concussion and whiplash. I didn't have a car for a while but I also have a truck so I wasn't too concerned about having a vehicle. Until.. I walk out one morning and it won't start. Not a battery. Just the whole electrical system is fucked. So I borrowed my gf's jeep for a while which ran well. Literally 2 weeks ago my car got repaired, last night... my gf and I were going out to dinner. Sitting at a red light and waiting to turn left. Light turns green. I turn left, there's a car in front of me, behind me and there's a wall of snow on my right. This minivan backs out of an alley and hits me. Hits me in my rear driver side. The exact same spot my car has been hit TWICE before. The damage is minimal and the car is drivable... however I wouldn't be so upset if the old lady driving had even any sense of where she was or what she was doing. This lady was like 80 years old. I walked up to her and made sure she was ok and she said yeah. Then I asked her if she was calling the police and she said no I'm not calling them I'm calling my husband because YOU hit me. I came so close to breaking her fucking mirror. So I call the police and it takes about a good hour for them to show up. They do all their BS and tell me my reg is expired and that I'm getting a citation for not having it registered. Which is fine, but I literally just got my car back and it expired less than a week ago but these assholes can't give me a warning and instead write me a ticket. Those are just a few of the things going on... I feel defeated. I feel like no matter what I do and how hard I try... things that are out of my control fuck me and I'm over it. Sorry. I just needed to vent.. and was honestly wondering if anyone else feels that life fucks them all the time too.
  7. I like it. Smooth. Not too much. Do your first one on future Raider QB Justin Herbert
  8. Just the continued pussification of the NFL spearheaded by Roger Goodell. Goodell wants more offense. More things to keep the peasant NFL fan pleased and buying tickets and generating money. The average fan wants to see points scored. Not a TEN/JAGS game with 2 backup QB's in Gabbert and Bortles. Yes. I'm aware Bortles is a starter but he's a backup on any team with a top 12 QB... The real fans know that this rule is physically impossible and already clouded from the piss poor emotional zebras that are currently around the league today. You can't fight gravity, but you can fight Goodell with a bullet in the head.
  9. Fuck Gruden. Fuck Mckenzie. Fuck Mark Davis. This team belongs in Oakland or LA. Al would be turning over in his grave.

    Evaluate Your Team, Week 1

    We are beyond fucked for the forseeable future. I wasn't big on the Gruden hiring as a HC... let alone the god of football operations. I like all the staff he brought in, I really do, but Gruden himself is a cancer. The ego of trading away your best player and believing in Mr. Carr is going to bite this team in the ass forever. I will forever stick with paying Mack before Carr because Carr never really proved himself outside of 16' since he got hurt that year he's seeing ghosts every play. Second half of the game last night shows that there is something wrong in his head. We have the oldest roster in the league and we are admittedly in rebuild mode? How? Nothing the Raiders have done this offseason has made sense.. the combination of Mckenzie's poor drafts and Gruden's mind will send this team back to the dark ages if we aren't already there. I had little optimism going into this season... Last night confirmed that I should have none for longer than just this year.

    Khalil Mack is riding the winds of change

    It's taken me a couple days to get over the amount of stupidity behind this. Gruden is taking this team to 3-13.

    Purple Jesus Rises Again

    You know you're an irrelevant team that's never going to win in the playoffs when you have AP AND Alex Smith... Washingtons plan this offseason was beyond piss poor...

    Preseason Thoughts (and prayers)

    Preseason says nothing about your team other than what you have on the bench and new NFL rules and officiating crews blow more than the year before.

    Jalen Ramsey Tees Off On Opposing QBs

    Most accurate thing I've heard out of a NL player in a while
  19. This guy. I was raised in the church and by fiscally conservative parents. To say the least I am nothing like them and I hate most 'church' activities and the regular jackasses who think that they are better than everyone else. The worst people I have met in life... have claimed to be Christians. The amount of 'Christians' that try to sweep things under the rug in churches and acquire hordes of money are no better than the people they condemn. Fuck the American church.

    How's your summer been?

    Haven't really been around a whole lot this summer as a lot of changes have happened in my life. I took a step forward mental health wise of finally having a consistent schedule where I now have every other weekend off. It literally took me 3 years to get to this point but I feel accomplished. Took a few vacations to the beach and still have one left. I live in a house with my best friend and soon to be fiance and in a week or so we will be picking up a 8 week old rottie as a new addition in our household. I haven't forgotten about this place. Football season is literally in a week.... which is crazy. I have also purchased tickets for the @ game in Baltimore that are second row in the endzone. How have you guys been? Do anything interesting this summer?

    Pick 6 New Playoff Teams for 2018

    The Bears are a good team.... defensively speaking. The tough thing about them is... well their division. They are more than capable of hanging with anyone in that division due to familiarity but I wouldn't count on it. I have lots of questions about Trubisky. Offensively the answer for them is going through Howard and Cohen...that's arguably the best backfield. Tennessee is right there with that award too. Chicago is going to be competitive because of their D and backfield... but I'm not sold on Mitch.
