    Aside from him forgetting the Chargers have resided in LA for a couple years now (though they belong back in the Whale's Vagina), that was pretty clever.

    I’ve complained about every sports contract north of $200 million since A-Rod in Texas. But this could’ve just as well been $750 million and I would’ve said “Sure, worth every penny.”

    Even though I am still smarting from his beating my favorite team in the super bowl this dude is awesome - good for him.
    Seems a crazy, sky-high, number....but at least it didn't go to some beater or oldster.  
    The love he receives is the love that is saved

    50m per year is a lotta $$$, even for 'Homes. 
    I thought that feeling in my stomach was bad whenever Tommy started revving up his motor to even think about just avoiding the rush, let alone aggressively running forward. 
    Hopefully, KC fans won't turn on him the tenth time he RG3's it during the exact situation so aptly described by H2TM.

    Speaking of which, how are the salaries being paid when the owners and NFL must be taking a revenue hit?

    Just in Mahomes case, he’s taking less money upfront and will get his “signing bonus” as guaranteed money over the extension.  He’s still slated to make $5.3M in 2020.

    Think I heard the Ravens announced they will limit attendance to 14,000 people. The Eagles gave season ticket holders until next week to either keep their tickets, get a refund, or transfer them to next year.

    This is gonna be a mess....

    It's crazy that teams think they are actually going to have fans this year.  They'll be lucky to actually start this season let alone finish it.

    This NFL thing isn't going to work. It's impossible. If one lineman gets it, then the entire offensive line gets it, as does the defensive line of their opponents. Those guys are all over each other every moment of the game. And when you're diagnosed, you have to quarantine for 14 days. Well that's two games. If the Chiefs have to play without Patrick Mahomes because he broke his ankle, well that's football. If they have to play without him because he might have touched the wrong doorknob in the hotel, that's not football. And there's going to be a lot of that. How can there not be? It's not a "bubble" idea like the NBA is doing. They're going to be traveling on planes and staying in hotels. Not to mention that between players and coaches, it's like 100 people together on a plane or a locker room. It's going to be a shit-show.

    Yeah I can’t see how football, and honestly any team sport including basketball can keep their players, coaches and staffs from getting sick.  Hopefully the bubble works for MLS and the NBA, but I have little confidence the MLB will finish their season and NFL even getting started with theirs.

    The Washington Foreskins.

    I think all sports fans and most everybody else will get a kick out of this letter written to the Chicago Tribune. No matter which side you are on in the matter of renaming the Washington Redskins, this guy is hilarious...

    This is an e-mail sent to Clarence Page of the Chicago Tribune after an article he published concerning a name change for the Washington Redskins.

    Dear Mr. Page: I agree with our Native American population. I am highly jilted by the racially charged name of the Washington Redskins. One might argue that to name a professional football team after Native
    Americans would exalt them as fine warriors, but nay, nay. We must be careful not to offend, and in the spirit of political correctness and courtesy, we must move forward.

    Let's ditch the Kansas City Chiefs, the Atlanta Braves and the Cleveland Indians. If your shorts are in a wad because of the
    reference the name Redskins makes to skin color, then we need to get rid of the Cleveland Browns.

    The Carolina Panthers obviously were named to keep the memory of militant Blacks from the 60's alive. Gone. It's offensive to us white
    folk.

    The New York Yankees offend the Southern population. Do you see a team named for the Confederacy? No! There is no room for any reference to that tragic war that cost this country so many young men's lives. I
    am also offended by the blatant references to the Catholic religion among our sports team names. Totally inappropriate to have the New
    Orleans Saints, the Los Angeles Angels or the San Diego Padres.

    Then there are the team names that glorify criminals who raped and pillaged. We are talking about the horrible Oakland Raiders, the Minnesota Vikings, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Pittsburgh
    Pirates!

    Now, let us address those teams that clearly send the wrong message to our children. The San Diego Chargers promote irresponsible fighting or even spending habits. Wrong message to our children.

    The New York Giants and the San Francisco Giants promote obesity, a growing childhood epidemic. Wrong message to our children. The Cincinnati Reds promote downers/barbiturates. Wrong message to our
    children.

    The Milwaukee Brewers. Well that goes without saying. Wrong message
    to our children.

    So, there you go. We need to support any legislation that comes out to rectify this travesty, because the government will likely become involved with this issue, as they should. Just the kind of thing the
    do-nothing Congress loves.

    As a die-hard Oregon State fan, my wife and I, with all of this in mind, suggest it might also make some sense to change the name of the
    Oregon State women's athletic teams to something other than "the Beavers (especially when they play Southern California. Do we really want the Trojans sticking it to the Beavers???

    I always love your articles and I generally agree with them. As for the Redskins name I would suggest they change the name to the
    "Foreskins" to better represent their community, paying tribute to the dick heads in Washington DC .
    Whomever wrote this is an idiot.

    Pat Mahomes is too good to be true.  Goddamn I am lucky to be a KC fan.
    Just curious, Brady took less money all those years so they could pay other players and win.  Does this deal Andrew Luck them and have not enough to put a team around him in order to succeed?

    Time will tell.
    They are probably fine the next 2 seasons while he finishes out his rookie deal, once the extension kicks in it will be tougher to fill out the roster with quality depth.

    Totally agree. At least with baseball, they're able to keep it regional to avoid extensive travel. No way to do that in football. 
    Football could've done something like that too though. They just put out the schedule like there's not a pandemic going on. But in retrospect, maybe they should've done something like baseball; admit that this year is different than every other year of our lives, and make changes accordingly. Like, maybe have only divisional games where you play your divisional opponents five times each instead of two times each. That would be 15 games right there. The Cowboys and Dolphins would get screwed by this though, of course. Or maybe do it regionally like baseball is, but make the divisions different for one year only; the Giants, Jets, Bills, and Patriots are all in the same division. Jags, Dolphins, Bucs, and Falcons are in another. And so on...

    Pat Mahomes is too good to be true.  Goddamn I am lucky to be a KC fan.
    Just curious, Brady took less money all those years so they could pay other players and win.  Does this deal Andrew Luck them and have not enough to put a team around him in order to succeed?
    I think it depends a lot on how big the salary cap will be over the next several years.  If the NFL takes a hit in revenue from COVID and boycotting against kneeling, then it could be a problem to field a complete roster around him.  Honestly, it’s either do you want Mahomes and a bunch of JAGs or a bunch of pretty good players (see KC from 1989-1997, 2013-2017) and continue to fall flat to teams with better QBs in the playoffs?  Granted you have to get to the playoffs first.  
    Folded over, forced in a choke hold
    Outnumbered and held down
    All of this talk of rapture
    Look around at the promise NOW,...

    They are rushing it.  They should just be Washington with the same colors and no Redskins until the have time to think it through.

    Typical Snyder, he even messes up when he does the right thing.
    The love he receives is the love that is saved

    I remember as a kid in the 80s thinking that the team name was offensive.  Try to change out the name with other colors.  Crazy. This should have been renamed long before anything else.  

    Of course im a Raider fan so we’ll probably also be renamed in the next decade.

    Raping and pillaging is very offensive. Raiders, Bucs, Vikings, MLB's Pirates....they all have to go.

    It's so damn patronizing to black people. Basically the NFL owners are saying "See? Your life MATTERS to us. It really does! It matters so much that we're going to play a special song just for YOU before the real national anthem! Isn't that nice of us? Now go fight through your concussions and win the game."
