I could give a rat's behind about what goes on in the NFL, but that is actually pretty interesting. You can take the thug out of the hood, but you can't take the hood out of the thug.

At a minimum of six games, this is the longest suspension the NFL has ever handed down for a single on-field incident, eclipsing the five games ex-Tennessee Titans lineman Albert Haynesworth received for ripping the helmet off Dallas center Andre Gurode and stomping his face in 2006. Heh. Sometimes evolution will only take you so far. Like millions of other annoyed fans I shined on the NFL for almost two seasons. Quit watching, completely. Had enough of Colon Pooperscoop etc. and besides, the NFL is a dirty, crappy organization and has been for at least a decade, likely far longer. ESPN also took it in their NFL bloomers and they've never recovered either. Truth is I still despise the NFL and always will but I enjoy football on Sunday afternoons and Monday nights. College ball is great but I always liked the the NFL vibe, since I was about eight years old. The league recently got some of its act together and seemingly locked the commissioner in an outhouse somewhere, which certainly helped. They also managed to regain control of most (not all) of their morons and I like having the Rams back in Los Angeles, so I've been watching this season. Now, I'm not so sure I'll stick around. Doesn't matter to me if all the feral thugs in the NFL sneak Glocks onto the field and shoot themselves to death; I just prefer to not be a part of it. Why? For the same reason I don't watch idiot box news. I refuse to be a fool. And it's not only because of gangsters like Myles Garrett and all the others; they've been around for years. The players will likely strike after the 2020 season. They might have good reason but that's not the point, for me at least. The thing is I don't hang around with stupid people. I avoid letting them in my house. So that's that for the NFL, again. As always, I can find plenty to do on Sundays and Mondays.

Evan Bleier's social justice warrior creds are showing. In last graph he posits that maybe the dude who got his head smashed should be suspended too essentially since he fought back. Play was ended, whistle was blown and this cretin, Myles, continues to pummel him. Hope they bring assault charges against him. They don't call it the National Felons League for nothing. If you or I were playing in a softball game and were hit by a fast pitch and headed to the mound swinging our batting helmet we would be arrested for assault and rightfully so. Myles should be banned for life and go through the football to prison pipeline like OJ, Villanueva.... Sounds like Roid rage to me.

All-around stupid behavior. Had Rudolph not come back for whatever, he wouldn't have gotten clubbed. There is a bit of contributory stupidity there on his part. Everyone involved should serve punishment. I'll also bet the union makes any legal threats go away.

I watched some of the game. I missed the end and Garrett's disgraceful behavior. I did not watch last year because of the un-American thugs who disrespected the National Anthem. I guess it is time to do more productive things on Sundays and Thursdays. I don't need to be entertained by idiots with less self-control than your average two-year-old.

I played football, many decades ago - in my h.s. freshman year, I wore a leather helmet, that's how long ago it was! And we played in a single wing formation, good only for running backwards andf punting, according to my friend's father. I learned, early on, how to be sneakily dirty. as an offensive guard, middle linebacker, sometimes center, I could incite an opponent to violence, thus eliciting a penalty on him. And I was usually able to gewt away with it. If you look closely at the video, Mason Rudolph, when taken down by Garrett, is trying to rip off Garrett's helmet. That, I would suggest, is the proximate cause of the brawl. I salute Rudolph for his sneakiness. He has a future in the NFL. But the video probably will cause him to be fined, and perhaps suspended for a game. Garrett, on the other hand, will lose millions of salary dollars. And he may become unemployable. Unless the Ravens hire him.

Some NFL journalists have come up with an alternate narrative where Rudolph is partially responsible basically because he defended himself against Garrett's late hit. This all goes to show how the NFL has declined over the last few years. The Browns will continue to be the historically worst team in the entire NFL. The Steelers will continue to decline because of poor players and poor coaching and poor drafting. Garrett should be thrown out of the NFL, but will likely be back next year.

So he should call up Kapernick or whatever his name is. Then the should find some rich MAD (middle age drunk) backers and start the PFL. Punk Football League.

Garret should never be allowed to play any professional sport again. I hope he loses a ton of money. They had to come down hard on this guy and stick with it. The fans are deserting the game. Football as I recall will never be the same. The NFL has spoiled these big babies and now look what's happened. Near empty stadiums, money down the drain and people at home not tuning in anymore.

What happened was an aggravated assault that is a criminal felony. In that respect the county attorney does not need a complaint from the victim, and he could take the video of the incident before a grand jury and get the perpetrator indicted. Following that the criminal justice system swings into action.

The whistleblower whose complaint about President Trump's communications with Ukraine launched House impeachment proceedings was still attending White House meetings recently and may have spoken to Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman prior to filing the complaint, according to the Washington Post. On Saturday, the outlet published details about the steps a CIA analyst took to blow the whistle after the president urged Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky during a July 25 phone call to start an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden, who is also leading the pack of 2020 Democrats.

The Democratic presidential battle is on the brink of being blown apart as more candidates join the fray and voters continue to search for someone who can defeat President Trump. No one — including the top tier of Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders — has been able to close the deal with Democrats. Biden is too shaky and old, Warren and Sanders are too far left and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg is too inexperienced. That leaves a gaping opening for a newcomer like former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick or potential candidate Michael Bloomberg or even Hillary Clinton. Patrick’s 11th-hour entrance into the race buttressed the argument

Sharpton got a $324,000 salary — 32% higher than his 2017 pay — in addition to a $159,596 bonus and $563,352 in “other compensation.” The Harlem-based nonprofit — which Sharpton controls as president and CEO — said the extra cash was to make up for the years from 2004 to 2017 when he didn’t get his full pay.

Even the intrepid John Solomon had not heard of her until March of this year. He had interviewed Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko who told him that Yovanovitch gave him a "do not prosecute" list the first time he met with her. He was angered by her list which he justifiably saw it as interference in Ukraine's government. He felt she was meddling in their anti-corruption investigations by telling him who should not be investigated.

TAMPA — From the moment the NFL announced its hasty plan for a Colin Kaepernick workout this weekend, the questions have been flying. After all this time, why the sudden rush? Did some team request this? How many general managers will show up? Is this simply a ploy for atonement by the NFL? Yet, around here, a more important question needs to be asked: Can Kaepernick help the Buccaneers? It’s an interesting and legitimate question with, at this point, no clear answer. Kaepernick has not been in an NFL uniform in nearly three years so it’s worth wondering if his skills have atrophied.
