  1. Not until 2019 or so but the deal is done. http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2017/03/27/raiders-move-to-las-vegas-approved/
  2. Caught Lego Batman the weekend before last. Not quite as much fun as the Lego Movie but if you are a Batman fan it's a blast. Will Arnett is pitch-perfect and the Lego Batman is probably the best Batman since Bale. The opening sequence is absolutely bonkers fun, but after that it never quite hits that high again. Definitely worth a watch once it hits netflix.
  3. Good. Now do something useful with his cap space. oh wait that's right free agency started three weeks ago. Eff u Mike.
  4. You know what else is better than MJ?
  5. OT just posting this in case Army is having a bad day and needs a chuckle.
  6. That's a very good way of putting it. Players' owner indeed.
  7. I was for Fournette, but now I'm on the Shelley Meyer train....
  8. Marvin checking out the talent at Ohio State's pro day.
  9. I don't know if I'd call it a valid reason, but I think I understand why, from the Bengals' viewpoint, he's still on the roster. We all know that when it comes to free agents or extensions, the Bengals rarely give out big bonuses or lots of guaranteed money. They prefer to give out, as Marvin once put it years ago, "a structure," meaning that in return for accepting smaller bonuses and guaranteed coin, a player can be assured (wink-and-nod here, of course) of getting the full value of his deal if he plays it all the way out. So, for example, Leon Hall gets his full, final, $9 million season even though he's working on two blown Achilles'. Peko gets to play out his deal even though his on-field play is trash. Etc, etc. Cut Jones, and the aforementioned wink-and-nod loses credibility, and the team's ability to sign guys, already strained by the lure of big immediate/guaranteed money elsewhere, takes a further hit. The downside is what we see here: guys can get away with dumb crap that would get them cut elsewhere. At least that's my read. We'll see how it goes.
  10. Peerman reportedly re-signed.
  11. Gotta hand it to Pacman, tho, that's a really good strategy. He may be stupid but he ain't dumb.
  12. (sadly, link is not to Goodell's letter of resignation...)
