I personally love Bill Simmons columns. I know some one here hate every writer, but I think he is good.

Neat perspective on the NFL.

Retarded people, don't bother it is fairly long.

Great article. Everyone on this board that has had a strong opinion on the CBA negotiations should read it.

Unfortunately, it's likely they won't and they'll continue on with their whole 'owners deserve their money because this is America' garbage.

Side note: I miss your Irving body-slam Wake RB gif :(

Wait, I meant to say that the article is just liberal news media, and the owners deserve everything they have because they took all the 'risk.' Whoops my bad. :rolleyes:

Editorialist crap. If you want something closer to actual journalism, this is what you need:

^^ Simmons is not a journalist, or attempting to be.

He is just making a huge, effective metaphor.

If the metaphor were so true, why is GB not making crazy money as is implied?

    • If nothing else that would mean more kicker jobs as guys like Lloyd would be in demand as a kick off specialist.
    • im generally ok with individual consumers boycotting but tbh im a little annoyed with companies boycotting. these businesses aren't benevolent and boycotting doesn't make their product more pure or their mode of production more ethical. i mean hey big deal ncaa, you moved your games. you're not taking much of a hit there but you get your positive press for your incredibly shitty business. like ok cool you hate the dumb law, i do too. maybe pay your employees before trying to stake out the moral high ground though??? meanwhile the nba moves it's all star game to louisiana where the largely black prison population still picks cotton on "former" slave plantations. hb2 is so mind numbingly stupid that it's easy to oppose without fear of having to sacrifice meaningful profits. im saving praise for companies that oppose oppressive institutions that aren't easy or profitable to oppose.
