I'm surprised the Giants didn't put Devin Thomas ( I know he plays offense) as the faker. Doesn't he aspire to be an actor

Re: Around The NFL week 2

On the fake injury incident. I wonder if it is feasible under the new CBA to have a league "medical referee" on each sideline. Basically the MR would certify roster health before and after the game, and conduct an onspot triage analysis when players are injured in game. I don't think penalties could be called in game, but the league could have a system of warning, fines and other penalties if a pattern of deceit is found.

Just heard a rumor that he signed up for acting classes so he can be even more convincing next time.

Some people are just not the brightest crayon in the box....

I'm glad there is not drama around the Skins and I hope it stays that way.
