It makes sense. I mean, it's unfathomably stupid that our team is being put in a position where we have jockey media storylines against one another in hopes of avoiding a pitchfork-wielding mob of angry peasants. Sure would be nice if some supposed "sports" journalists covering a football team would...I don't know...talk about the football played by that team? I know, I know. I have crazy dreams.
I know OP has already caught tons of flak for calling it a potential super bowl matchup, but I'm here to beat the dead horse. It doesn't matter how legit the Bengals look in the regular season. Until they win a game in the playoffs, I won't believe. Not a chance they're in the superbowl.
You seem to forget that Hardy was convicted ... his appeal notwithstanding.
But his appeal IS withstanding. That's a really important point. A bench trial is hardly an affordment of the due process of law. It's actually a rather disgusting perversion of it that gives far too much power to single individuals that have their own interests.
Ebron has the tools to be one of the best TEs in the NFL. I can promise you Ebron was running his mouth yesterday.
Now, with that being said, I am a UNC fan but Ebron has always struck me a bit of a jerky athlete. I don't know the guy at all and for all I know he may donate hours and money to charity, but just from what I saw at UNC....he def seems like he loses focus and has that entitled, everyone thinks I'm a superstar attitude. He is notorious for trolling and baiting NC State losers on twitter and I believe he was the one who was stomping/dancing on NCSU's logo after we beat them last year.Fedora about had a stroke when he saw that. A rookie TE poo talking arguably the best defensive player in the game during a losing effort absolutely shows immaturity.
I'm a State fan, but I always try to let my bias go when it comes to individual players. Giovani Bernard, for instance...as much as I hate him for that game-winning punt return, he has been nothing but a class act and a damn good RB. But I agree that Ebron has always given me that same vibe. I don't remember if it was him dancing on our logo, but I think you're right that it was.
