    So apparently there are some texts that the attorney is threatening to release. Basically, Watson wanted his glutes massaged and the masseuse felt uncomfortable doing that, he apologized, and thats about all I can see.

    I do find it weird that a star pro athlete doesn't have his own private massage therapist to deal with more "personal" massages. Maybe there is something out of the 9 cases. Or maybe its 1 case and 8 being paid by McNair.

    Also their Nick collab will continue into 2033.
    I really hope the prime app streaming isn't hot garbage on the xbox series x this year. It was unwatchable last year, and twitch decides to roll ads whenever they feel like it on the official stream.

    I was watching Saints games on NFL Network, for the Brees spin move, and saw some of their bottom-line draft coverage. It looked like all the top CB prospects are the sons of guys that I've seen play in the NFL, so... feeling old.

    Yeah, no. Mark Davis kinda made this clear when he told people touting Greg Hardy rumours to fuck off, he'll not sign men who are violent towards women.

    The guy is an egotistical weirdo, but he is a damn good lawyer. He did head the lawsuit against BP after the Horizon oil spill in 2010.

    Basically, I think this is to draw out any more potential victims.

    Also, why would Watson target young, super early in the careers women instead of use team provided or even just regular, experienced professionals? Thats a red flag to me tbh. Will need to see what other texts say.

    Patriots got David Andrews back, despite the fact he got offered more elsewhere and was basically out the door already. We even signed Ted Karras to replace him! And then he's back cause he wanted to be in NE more than anywhere else.

    Love that guy.

    Juju is going back to the Steelers in what's probably the best outcome for both sides.
    Legion made WoD's mistakes into traditions. It is my belief when all is said and done we will regard Legion as the beginning of the end.

    JuJu apparently turned down a higher offer from the Ravens, which I get, being a former Steeler and not wanting to piss off everyone, but also apparently turned down a higher offer with added incentives from the CHIEFS.

    Who in their right mind chooses to take less money so they can play with Big Ben over Mahomes?

    I'll give him kudos for his loyalty, but if you are going to take a 1 year prove it deal, then playing with the superior QB in an offense that will give you plenty of soft coverages sounds like a far smarter plan to get paid an actual contract next year.

    I think this is one of those COVID effect contracts. It's less a prove-it deal and more "I want to hit the market next year when the cap goes ballistic from the new TV deal instead of this year where it's depressed because of COVID."

    Not sure what to think of the contract Denver gave Justin Simmons. He wasn't even the best safety on his own team, yet got the highest contract for one (and the better one got his option declined??). Hopefully the actually good safeties that get new contracts in the next couple years make this one look not bad.

    Evidently the Bears decided to not actually release Kyle Fuller, probably trying to get someone to trade for him instead.

    Phillip Lindsay ended up signing with the Texans. Guess the FA market wasn't as kind to him as him and his agent thought it would be.

    Thats exactly my thought. I would hate to be a 2nd wave or later free agent this year. With all but the sunday ticket deal getting inked, and presumably fans being allowed in all stadiums again, the cap is gonna go through the roof next year. Why bother with moving your life this year when you can wait 1 year and really rake it in

    I personally am feeling Darren Sharper vibes, where at first you think theres no way, then as more and more gets piled on you realize there is something much more evil at play. Theres 22 people now.

    I am similarly concerned, this is pretty bad but at least it isn't Sharper levels of terrible, just Sharper volume. I mean, Peyton Manning and Antonio Brown managed to shake off one accusation, but 12+? That is a lot harder to dismiss.

    Honestly I think the higher that number goes the easier it gets again to shake off. We're at 12 now, with 10 more that they're talking to. It's a lot harder to believe this guy had sexual misconduct with 22 women than it would have been the initial 3-4 from a few days ago.

    NFL gives the Raiders their 6th rounder they took for COVID protocol breaches.

    Got to be honest, I didn't think that appeal was going anywhere but pick #200 returns to Vegas.

    There's no reason it couldn't be true that there are still 3-4 legit offenses and numerous frivolous ones as well.

    He is now once again released. Stay tuned for the un-release.

    If the rookies Denver drafted last year improve in year 2, corner isn't too bad now. I don't think there is even a strong safety on the roster, so that might hurt a lot.

    Hopefully now that corner isn't a desperate need, they take a QB in the 1st round and shoot Lock toward Mars or something.
