    Re: NFL 2018.1 The off season

    In Barr's case it reminded me of some of the hits you see in hockey where you "finish your check" despite the fact that the puck is gone and the hit doesn't really serve any purpose. That said I get that the game is played fast and it was a pretty bang bang play. In terms of NFL hits it wasn't particularly egregious and I doubt there was any intent to injure.

    IDK, we heard a ton of pushback when the made rules against leading with your head, hitting defenseless receivers, some of the rules that already existed IRT hits on QB's etc. I think this is just a continuation of those rules.

    It wasn’t egregious at all. It was a soft hit by nfl standards.

    Agreed, I just think the NFL is in a tough spot trying to make a very unsafe sport slightly less unsafe and keep Star players on the field (though there’s about a million other things they could do like shortening the schedule and not having Thursday games etc. so it’s very hypocritical).

    With how many times Rodgers has managed to scramble or spin and pitch the thing off for a first down against the Vikings, I don't blame Barr for not taking any chances.

    I’d dump everything but Sunday games, double or triple the byes, and cut the games by four.

    These kinds of penalties will take some star players off the field if even for just a portion of one and no Packers fan stopped going to their remaining games after Erin got injured.

    **** that. We need more football!!!! Lets just start replacing players body parts with robot parts, preemptively, so they can't get injured, but can also hit harder.

    We already have Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. We definitely don't need Thursday. Monday I could take or leave. I've never understood the love of MNF.

    Go back to our parents' and grandparents' generations and it was often the marquee game of the week - the best matchup of the week. The problem now is that the NFL wants other teams featured, so you get the occasional Browns v. Jets scheduled, and other games where a blowout can be expected because one team is good while the other is the Bengals. Add to that, teams are less predictable than they were in decades past, due to parity or whatever, but games that were expected to be good when scheduled turn into complete duds.

    NFL mandates that each team needs to appear at least once in prime time

    BTW, last night's CFL game on ESPN2 was one for the ages.

    But I agree on Thursday. Now that Color Rush is no longer a thing, there really is no point to Thursday Night Football. ****, I loved Color Rush.

    It was still the marquee game until the switch to ESPN. Then they decided to move the game of the week to Sunday night.

    I don't understand the Thursday game, but apparently it's working because Fox was willing to jump over the other networks for it.

    Yup, so I'd dump it completely. It's a stupid relic of the past that lost its purpose.

    Re: NFL 2018.1 The off season

    Tom Brady turned down a $1 million fine instead of a four-game suspension if he publicly implicated former Patriots equipment staffers John Jastremski and Jim McNally in the Deflategate scandal, according to a new book called “12: The Inside Story of Tom Brady’s Fight For Redemption’’ by Casey Sherman and Dave Wedge.

    The book states NFL commissioner Roger Goodell “demanded that Brady state publicly that former Patriots equipment guys [John] Jastremski and [Jim] McNally had purposely tampered with footballs, even without his knowledge. Tom said no.

    “There’s no way I’m gonna ruin these guys for something I believe they didn’t do,’’ Brady told NFL Players Association head DeMaurice Smith, according to the book.
