Re: Super Bowl LII Thread

Difference with Wentz is he can play from the pocket so he can afford to dial back his running.

None of that stuff! The teams, the league - all owned by McMahon. No one with a criminal record will be allowed in the league. That includes Manziel. There will be no display of social protests in the league. Vince is giving this league two years to prepare, so that they can scout out the best players and have them practicing in advance in order to put out a better product.

I like what Vince McMahon is doing. He said the XFL is not going to be a development league for the NFL. He wants it to be its own professional league. 8 teams (to start with) and a 10 week season. He has my support!
He also isn't going to have any time for Player protests or any of that. I don't want to re-ignite the Anthem debate, but Vince has the right idea by saying that the national anthem / flag, etc., will not be televised / part of the game, because people don't want to watch patriotism or politics, they want to watch football. He did say that he had no issue with protests, kneeling, etc., as long as they were on the players' free time and not the XFL's.

Only thing i don't get though, if Vince is the owner of all 8 teams, how can he decide how to make the teams competitive, or decide which team he wants to make try and win? I don't mean like he's going to rig it, but i am asking, like will he hire 8 independent general managers, give them all the same amount of money, and tell them may the best man win?

Re: Super Bowl LII Thread

I figured out my rooting interests in the SB. I'm rooting to win at squares, last week I won $125 off the third quarter of Vikings-Eagles, so I took 100 of it and bought 5 squares for next week at 20 per. If I win one quarter I get 500, if I lose I was playing with house money anyways lol. And I got some good numbers too, 3-3, 7-4, 8-4, 6-3, and one other I forget.

People don't like their country being protested, especially on the basis of lies.
Link Shocker!

Even more shocking, people protest and expect no backlash.

Most shocking of all, politicizing sports is divisive. SHOCKING, I say!

Kneeling was never about the flag or country.

It's sure to attract the middle-aged white man crowd that can't watch football because a guy is kneeling during the national anthem.

Re: Super Bowl LII Thread

Has anybody seen the most recent Chappell standup on Netflix? Welp, it hilarious of course but I roared at the bit about the flag kneeling.He threw in an OJ reference and an imitation of the kneel....I bout fell off my couch in laughter. Itís perfect.

Sometimes with these issues, humor puts it in perfect context.

Funny thing to say about something done when the flag and national anthem are presented.

Oh wait, in Colin Kapernick's own words: ďI am not going to stand up to show pride in a FLAG for a COUNTRY that oppresses Black people and people of color. " (Bold, underline, and caps mine)

Guess Kapernick didn't get the memo about kneeling never being about the flag or country. Someone should educate him.

It was about a benched former QB who was looking for a way to become pertinent again as others joined in the gesture was interpreted as a different thing altogether. Lets remember when this QB in question was a starter he did nothing of the sort and life was fine.

Thatís certainly an interesting way to go about it. I can think of a lot easier ways.

In all due respect to you, and please do not take this as a personal attack, but I truly feel sorry for you if you believe that Kaepernick's protest was really deep down about him not being a starting QB.
