    Its been pretty shitty.

    Dam trouble was way up north, all there is in LA is a concrete corridor with a trickle of water through it.

    Fitzpatrick signed with the Bucs. Time to see how Winston gets hurt.

    The fact that it's not unreasonable to say this just cracks me up. Draw play spent a comic on it too. I pray Jameis Winston stays safe, cause he;s much mroe fun to watch then Fitzvoodoo.

    Bennett speaks out against Seattle Times. There is some reason for this. Matt is very disliked among fans and players.

    Seems like a fair article that gave him plenty of praise but called him out for being a media-hostile baby, and he responds by being a media-hostile baby.

    Hes known for clickbait shit that gives seattle times a really bad rep with seahawks fans. Its a shame, because the beat writers there are really good.

    "Roger Goodell is expected to tell NFL owners group celebrations, using ball as prop after TDs, going to ground, snow angels are now allowed."

    Well then. The "Not Too Much But A Tiny Bit of Fun League" maybe?

    As far as celebrations go that seems to be about all of them. Not sure what is left that isn't allowed?
    Ideally they would just change the rules to state any celebration that doesn’t interfere with the opposing team, lasts fewer than 10 seconds, and is appropriate for a family viewing experience is allowed.

    10 min overtime rules approved. Hopefully it stimulates teams to be more aggressive in OT, instead of the more likely out come of forcing more ties and potentially creating a new OT game where the team that wins the toss tries to milk clock if they get into FG position early and creates an unfair environment where the second team doesn't have enough time to get down field.

    Then you get things like TO using a sharpie to sign the ball or that same TO throwing popcorn into his helm and god knows what other nonsense players would get up to with props outside of the ball. They'd definitely have to ban props from being used as well.

    HoF Defensive lineman Cortez Kennedy passed away at the age of 48. No details but seemingly nothing suspicious.

    I assume the old guard/Seahawks fans will know who he was. Reading his accolades, he was something special, that's for sure. First-team All-Pro three times, defensive player of the year award in 1992 and on the NFL’s All-Decade team for the 1990s, and enshrined in the HoF in 2012.

    What's left? Clearly using a charity thing as a prop, ala jumping into a giant Salvation Army bowl.

    David Irving failed a drug test. Likely to face suspension. Linked to some kind of supplement

    Cooks' arrow shooting is still illegal. Goal post dunks are probably still under delay-of-game and illegal.

    Seems like every year we lose a former player too young. Bad week to of grown up in Seattle in the 90s.

    Gronk got some changes to his contract. Can now make something like 5M more based on incentives and playing time. He was scheduled to make 5.25 Million and can now make 10.75 Million if he reaches all of the incentives.

    Patriots didn't have to do it, even had no reason to do it, given his injury last year, yet still kept him happy by doing him a solid deal for this year (probably looking forward to next year when a contract extension would make more sense, especially if he stays healthy). VERY rare, not just for the Patriots but in general.

    The injury last year is what makes it easy for them to do this, since most of the incentives would be categorized as unlikely to be earned, they would roll on to the 2018 cap.

    That seems extremely low. Then again we are paying Graham 10m/yr.

    Gronk got a long deal which at the time was a nice deal for a budding star. I looked back and it made Gronk the highest paid TE in the NFL by some margin when he signed it. Just the NFL has changed and Gronk has gotten even better so looking at it now, it seems ridiculous that he "only" makes about 5M.
