    Incognito placed on psychiatric hold

    His issues are blown out of proportion, based on what I know of him. I just can't see a dude sitting there, benching, and then have a dumbbell thrown at him for no reason. I don't like the way this story was approached because the journalists failed to seek out other opinions on what occurred.
  2. When viewed objectively, there shouldn't be a problem either way. People in all walks of life are attempting to strip the norms of proper behavior in society. Part of that can be via rioting, blatant disregard for the law, walking out of class while in high school to protest, etc. The fact of the matter is that as an employee, and without contractual language stating otherwise, the players are subject to rules and regulations put forth by the NFL. Failure of parents to raise their children with an air of accountability is an issue and we are seeing that come to the forefront in many areas of society. Some of these players make more than enough money to fund awareness projects for the causes they claim to kneel for. However, some kneel and fail to put a dime toward actually correcting the issues inherent in what is being protested. Put your money where your mouth is, but don't bite the hand that feeds you; and i'm not referring to the owners, but to the fans.

    I'd like to know the full story behind this. The only voice provided is that of the guy on the receiving end of the dumbbell. Even with roid rage, you aren't going to do what Incognito did without some sort of trigger. Something had to have been said by the individual who is claiming he wasn't doing anything but working out.

    Curtis Samuel ....

    I would believe most players slight of frame will lose mass if they are injured. If he overeats during his injury, he gains fat and loses muscle mass. Eating at a deficit may allow him to not gain fat, while losing some muscle mass. That mass can be added back easier than trying to add mass and burn extra weight in fat off. Thus, when healthy he can worry only about working out and adding muscle mass back.
  5. My work place also requires me to wear a tie and be presentable for meetings with clients. In the NFL, fans are the clients. Management reserves the right to make decisions regarding working rules.
  6. Hackenburg doesn't have half the arm of Allen and he actually regressed every season he played.

    Will Tepper Move Training Camp?

    Not sure if altitude would help or not but it makes sense. Raleigh - Durham would be nice from a fan engagement standpoint.

    Just wait.

    Deep dive insiders info on the sale by SI

    In a 2010 New York Magazine profile, he said, “I think when it comes to decisions, I try not to be emotional, to drown out the noise and look at the important facts.” This is hilarious. "I'm a Purchasing Agent for X company. I don't purchase these things on emotion! I only look at trade publications and analyze what the purchase price should be from those!" Why does that even need to be said?

    Navarro issues a statement

    Now I feel bad. Hedgefund manager versus a guy who at least lives within our in-market TV coverage footprint. If he didn't have NFL Sunday Ticket, the only game he could watch on Fox on Sundays is the Panthers. Hope we aren't looking back 10 years from now, seeing this sale as going to the wrong person.
  11. Despite the Brown's being awful, they still fill the stadium and sell a ton of merchandise. With their relatively low salary output for players, i'd think their operating margins are relatively high. I just hope Tepper doesn't take low salary expenditure to mean higher margins because if the Panther's suck, people in the Carolina's won't be showing up like Browns fans.
  12. Lance Taylor wanted DJ Moore; he also wanted CMC and Samuels.

    Elijah Hood claimed off waivers

    I live 5 minutes the other direction, toward Hope Valley...perhaps it's the stink from the Ph.D's who never bathe.
