    The Colts are happy to welcome the goat to the roster. Jordan will look great in a Colts uniform.

    How to put a kibosh on a team 101: So yeah. No more unbeatens, no more perfect teams, as an Arizona team fighting for their playoff lives took down the 5-0 Apollos. First our scores: Salt Lake Stallions 22, Memphis Express 9 Arizona Hotshots 22, Orlando Apollos 17 San Antonio Commanders 37, Atlanta Legends 6 Birmingham Iron 32, San Diego Fleet 29 8. (1-5, 15 PPG #7, 22.5 OPG #7) (-): The Express were soundly beaten by the Stallions in a matchup between two teams that always have trouble finishing games. At 1-5, the Express are almost certainly out of the playoff picture barring a miracle. Fortunately Johnny Manziel, fresh out of being kicked out of the CFL, is on his way to save the day! 7. (2-4, 12.2 PPG #8, 26.7 OPG #8) (-2): A week after I praised them for their back to back wins, the Legends got beaten like a red-headed step child. 37-6 gives the Legends the two most lopsided defeats this season, and they looked like their old selves. They could not stop the Commanders, nor could they score themselves. Just ugly all around. Now two games back of Birmingham for the 2 seed in the East, they're gonna need a lot of help for any chance at all. 6. (2-4, 18.7 PPG #6, 20.2 OPG T#4) (+1): The Stallions beat up on the Express, finally finding another team that is also unable to play four quarters of good football all the way to the end. This is not a bad ballclub, they just seem to have issues finding the last bit to push them over the hump. They are definitely still alive in the West, just a game out of a playoff spot. 5. (3-3, 21.9 PPG #4, 20.5 OPG #6) (+1): Well done, Arizona. The Hotshots had their backs against the wall as dropping to 2-4 in the East would have left them in a tough spot. Instead they scored a huge upset on the road versus the previously 5-0 Apollos. And they held that offense to 17 points, and answered any scoring drive the Apollos made. 4. (3-3, 23.3 PPG #2, 20.2 OPG T#4) (-2): The Fleet lost a close one to the Iron at home, their first home loss all season, to fall to .500 and a game behind the Commanders in the West. San Diego really should have been able to pull this one out, but a defense that seemed unable to stop the Iron unless they got a turnover (which did help, to be fair), couldn't hold on at the end to give them a chance. 3. (4-2, 20.5 PPG #5, 15.5 OPG #1) (+1): The Iron's defense gave up a lot of points tonight, partly due to a pair of costly turnovers by Luis Perez. Keith Price had better have been hurt, because coach Lewis nearly threw this one away if that is not the case. Perez is making some boneheaded throws now, maybe as a result of having pressure put on him to perform better. A win is a win, but this one is ugly, and if your ultimate goal is to pull an upset of the Apollos in the Eastern Finals, the Iron have to get better on all sides. Still, it is nice to snap a two-game losing streak and get in the W column again. 2. (4-2, 22.2 PPG #3, 19.3 OPG #3) (+1): The Commanders looked in complete... control against the Legends, shellacking them 37-6 in a game that was never in doubt. They have a one-game lead on everyone else in the West, and are on a 3-game winning streak. The Commander's defense hassled Murray all day long, and their offense took advantage of costly mistakes as well as putting together some nice drives of their own. They look to be the biggest threat to Orlando, already having played them close earlier this season. 1. (5-1, 27.7 PPG #1, 16.5 OPG #2) (-): The Apollos remain at #1 despite the loss. They have put together too good and consistent of a season for one loss to drop them from the 1 spot, but San Antonio is right behind them. Orlando's Garret Gilbert turned the ball over twice uncharacteristically, the second time being an absolute backbreaker. The Apollos are still in command of the East, but the myth they are unbeatable has proven to be just that.

    2019 TGP Mock Draft (Discussion Thread/Sign-ups)

    Pretty sure Carolina does not have Paradis in this draft, so we need a center for sure. We have someone we can slot in there for awhile while Jenkins sits, if that's what it takes, but given he has played almost every O-line position, he could also fit in at G opposite Trai Turner.

    Ilhan and AOC are awesome, but do they represent a great deal of our generation? Or are they more outlier than representative? Maybe I'm being too cynical here, idk.

    Sean continually misinterpreting the meaning of my argument lol. 1) I don't like Biden, I simply think he matches up very well with Trump. The polls show him with a double digit lead over Trump atm. 2) Yes if you're seriously using a presidential run *thirty* years ago to argue Biden shouldn't run for President now, you're just nuts. Entirely different political climate. 3) No, Dems do not have to stoop to Trump's level to beat him. Trump is a sycophantic con man, and trying to play his game will, IMO, lose you the election. You don't beat a snake oil salesman by selling something else that is fake. Anyone who at this point still supports Trump is not worth the time going after. They have made up their minds and have decided they're okay voting for a dude like Trump, you aren't going to convince them by directly attacking him. They've made their bed with the enemy and they can stay there for all I care. If you still support that dude at this point, something is seriously wrong with your moral compass. 4) While I get that some millennials take offense to Biden's recent comments, the core of his message is accurate. Too many of our generation complain about things on the internet and never actually try to go and change it:

    Now you're just making shit up. Where you are getting your information from? It certainly isn't reality. Joe BIden has run for President two times. He did receive one vote in 1984 at the Democratic National Convention but it was a write-in, he did not run in '84 at all. In 1988 he had a three month campaign from June to September. He had a hard time campaigning, due to feeling faint during most of the campaign. The reason for which was that he had brain tumors that were not discovered until February. He never ran for President again until 2008, where he bowed out after the Iowa caucuses. In any case, no one was beating Obama in '08. So if we're counting, that is two times he has actually ran, and only one time did he not have a severe health problem that impacted his ability to speak and campaign for long periods of time. Also you're using quora as a source, which is literally just someone asking the internet a question and random people responding. Your dude simply lives in Texas. That's it. That's his entire qualifications for discussing whether Texas is turning blue. Multiple other people in the comments go the other way.

    I've never watched a single show of Bill Maher's in my life. My analysis of Beto vs Trump is my own. The man would destroy him for the same reasons Joe Biden would. You need to stop listening to whatever continually puts all the conspiracies you believe in your head, bro. It's not healthy. Serious question here, too. Do you actually read the articles you link me or do you just google stuff and then link an article you think supports your argument? Because this article does the opposite. They specifically say that mid-term elections are still deep red, mainly because the Dems dont do a good job turning out the vote, while the presidential elections are slowly shifting blue- that said we're still talking double digit margins for the GOP here. Beto did a great job of turning out the vote. If he wins the nomination, the only possible reason I can see that would let Trump win is because the far left stays home because they don't like Beto simply being for a young white guy- entirely possible, already heard some backlash because of that.

    I find it hard to put the Commanders ahead of San Diego since two weeks ago the Fleet annihilated them, and its a snowball effect because I cant justify the Iron ahead of San Antonio either. It's close, it's all very close- except Orlando. I get what you're saying and I wouldn't have much of an issue with a 2. SAC 3. BI 4. SDF ranking either. I feel like we have three tiers. And teams within the same tier can basically be swapped. We have Tier 1: Apollos Tier 2: Commanders, Fleet, Iron Tier 3: Legends, Hotshots, Express, Stallions. Bjorn: it's hit or miss to be honest. Some games are not so great, but the Salt Lake/San Diego game was one of a group that have been amazing. The Fleet won on a last second FG. The Express/Legends game was the same. The biggest issue, IMO, is the QB play. There are a *lot* of missed passes. I feel like its to be expected a bit, as we can't find 32 people to play QB for the NFL, how are we gonna find 8 more than can do it here? Secondly, no one really seems to have figured out how to have a consistent running game. Trent Richardson leads the AAF with 8 TDs, but he's under 3 YPC. The Apollos are also clearly the best team and I think will cruise to the title, so that takes some of the fun out of it. They have Charles Johnson, (used to be a decent wideout for the Vikes), and also Garret Gilbert (former Panthers backup QB), and he is easily the best QB in the AAF. Just hard to stop guys with actual NFL experience.

    An impeachment move at this point makes no sense. It's purely a political ploy, because there's no way it gets past the Senate. If something changes and you have the GOP supporting it, then so be it. But like I said earlier I think its the absolute worst move the Dems can make, because then Mike Pence is your president and if you think Trump is evil, wait until you get a guy that knows how to hide shit instead of having it all hang out in the open. I am ten times more scared of Pence than I am of Trump. Plus I think Pence could easily win re-election versus almost anyone the Dems could put up.

    Another week down, and if there was any doubt about who was the best team in the AAF, the Apollos ended that on Saturday. Not too many upsets here. First; the scores: Orlando Apollos 31, Birmingham Iron 14 Salt Lake Stallions 25, San Diego Fleet 27 Atlanta Legends 23, Memphis Express 20 San Antonio Commanders 29, Arizona Hotshots 25 8. (1-4, 16.2 PPG #7, 22 OPG #7) (-2): The Express fell on the road to the Atlanta Legends 23-20 due to a myriad of problems cropping up. For a team that seemed to be playing everyone hard, to lay an egg in what was basically an elimination game is a tough pill to swallow. Sitting at 1-4, it is very doubtful the Express can claw their way back out of the basement in the East. 7. (1-4, 18 PPG, #6 22.4 OPG #6) (-): The Stallions looked sure to have pulled the upset on the fleet when they scored the go ahead TD and 2 point conversion with less than a minute to go, but a defensive breakdown cost them a 45 yard pass and the ballgame. The Stallions are like the Express- they have played a lot of close games, but just cannot finish. 6. (2-3, 21.8 PPG #3, 21.2 OPG #4) (-1): Atlanta got completely smashed in the first three quarters versus San Antonio and a late comeback attempt, (helped out by back to back penalties negating back to back INTs), stalled on the onsides conversion. The preseason favorite Hotshots have now lost three straight and and given that they have to travel to Orlando next week, it could easily be 4 in a row for Arizona. 5. (2-3, 13.4 PPG, #8, 24.6 OPG #8) (+3) If you claimed two weeks ago the Legends were about to go on a 2 game winning streak, I'd've called you crazy. The difference in this team since Aaron Murray took over at QB is night and day, and he gives them a decent chance to crawl back into things. 4. (3-2, 18.2 PPG #5, 12.8 OPG #1) (-2): The Iron have now lost two straight and have a critical game ahead versus the Fleet. The 31-14 score indicates a beatdown, but the game was a bit closer than it seemed. Keith Price kept the Iron in it in the second quarter onwards, leading three scoring drives, and throwing the first(!) TD pass of the season for the Iron. Price should start over Perez from here on out if they want to keep ahead of the Legends. 3. (3-2, 19.2 PPG #4, 22 OPG #5) (+1): The Commanders looked dominating versus Arizona in the first three quarters, but they did let the Hotshots make this game a bit closer than it should have been. Still, after getting drubbed 30-11 by the Fleet in week 3, the Commanders have put together solid back to back road wins versus the Iron and the Hotshots. 2. (3-2, 22.2 PPG #2, 17.8 OPG #3) (+1): The Fleet needed a minor miracle to take out the Stallions with a last minute FG, but the team is playing well. There simply is a huge gap between them- well really everyone- and the team ahead of them. 1. (5-0, 29.8 PPG #1, 15.4 OPG #2) (-): The Apollos remain entrenched in the first position after a thorough victory over the Iron on the road. It is fair to wonder if the Apollos will simply cruise to the title, or if we will have a gigantic upset- because at this point, that's what it would be for anyone to beat Orlando. Garret Gilbert is running away with MVP honors, and the defense has come together nicely over the past few weeks. There is still that nagging penchant for penalties, but that's really the only downside right now for the Apollos.

    I personally think Biden is not good for the country, but I think he would absolutely destroy Trump. A not-so-insignificant minority that supports the Donald does so because or at least in part because, he is an old white dude. Again, not claiming everyone is racist who supports him, but a minor chunk is. A minor chunk that is normally among those most vocally in support of Trump and most energetic about supporting him, as they see him as a buffer to the "others" such as Ilhan Omar that is coming with her Sharia law to destroy the US- as told to them by Judge Jeanine Piro on Fox News, who literally questioned on Friday whether the fact that Omar wears a hijab means that she is more loyal to the Quran than the US. (She really did.) You would think a Catholic of all people would know better than to go down that road. Point being- those people will not be nearly so enthusiastic if Joe Biden is the opponent. And the loss of a few tens of thousands is enough to sink Trump, given how close his margins are. The Democrats base is scared as hell and hopefully pissed off to boot, because if Trump wins, the Supreme Court will be at least 6-3 in favor of the GOP, as there is simply no way Ginsburg makes it four more years. People that I think would beat him easily: Tulsi Gabbard, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris. People that would be closer but I think would win: Bernie Sanders, Corey Booker, Julian Castro, Kirstie Gillibrand. People who are going to lose: Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar.

    If there was no collusion, or at least none provable, so be it. But Trump has done plenty of things since then that makes me highly doubt he will be going into 2020 full blast. The man lies like five times a day, lol. Any competent person should be able to destroy him on the issues. The question is whether the Dems will put one up.

    We shall see what Mueller has when he releases the report, he has indicted or convicted quite a few people, to call that nothing is kinda silly. He's still sitting on things, you dont just make everything public during an investigation. The continued assault on Omar for simply saying that a superpac puts money into politics and pro-Israel politicians is disturbing. How is that anti-Semitic in any way shape or form? Are we not allowed to criticize Israel at all? And then we have Meghan McCain almost breaking down into tears, (LMAO), about antisemitism and how Omar's comments scare her. I feel like everyone up there has taken a crazy pill all of a sudden. I just don't even understand how her comments could be construed as antisemite in any way. The only thing I can even think of is that Jews are stereotyped as loving money... but its a fact that Aipac puts a lot of money into politics. McCain had a comic post a drawing on her twitter account of her faux outrage over Omar's comments, and Meghan responded by saying it was the most antisemetic thing she'd ever seen. The comic was made by Eli Valley, who is Jewish. Clearly, anti-semetic. If merely criticizing a country is construed as being racist against that country's inhabitants, we are in serious trouble as a society. On a different front, Medhi Hasan did an interview with Erik Prince, (Betsy Devos's brother), the leader of Blackwater, which is a private security firm. Prince wants to privatize the war in Afghanistan and has been quoted as saying some pretty *ahem* inflammatory comments about the Iraqis. Prince has been linked to Trump and donated $250k to Trump's campaign. He testified before the House Intelligence Committee that he had nothing to do with the campaign in any official matter except to maybe plant some signs in front yards. In the interview, he says he was part of the Trump Tower meeting in 2016, which Hasan responds to with incredulity, as Prince just basically admitted he committed perjury. When pressed on it, he insisted he revealed this to Congress, when shown the transcript where he did not, he responded that the transcript was wrong. These people think they are untouchable, its hilarious. Should be an easy one to jail, at least, not sure how you get out of flat out admitting perjury.
