MyNameIsMofuga: Merton Hanks. That guy had a long neck.

It wasn't just the long neck that caught your attention. It was his celebration dance after a big play where he could bounce his head back and forth 180 degrees at lightning speed. I'm surprised he never gave himself a concussion.
The way he took an unusual attribute and utilized it - it'd be like Peyton Manning showing highlight films on his forehead

mikaloyd: So...a fine they issued during the playoffs has been rescinded. And butthurt drama queens show up NOW to piss and moan about fines in the NFL? Because millionaires they never met are losing pocket change?
Alrighty then princesses, were you too busy being upset many months ago when the fine was levied to howl about it? Or did some other fleeting shiny drama fasten all your attention and you never even knew there WAS any fine until today? Didja jump straight into your angry dresses as soon as you heard about this outrage so you could tell the NFL how horrible and boring it is and how you can barely watch it until it makes drastic changes?

ESPN's style of angry insane all op-ed all the time sports journalism seems to have taken a life of its own amogst many fans. You guys have even spawned a distinct jargon and mutial talking points. Its somewhere between spooky and fascinating to watch . From that perspective the fireworks and hystrionics and implied ultimatums and tantrums are sort of entertaining. (in a regrettable way, like drinking jaegermeister at the office party) At least y'all arent tryin to run the country via angry isane drastic changes the way politics "fans" who are afflicted with the same trait/phenomenon do. So sorry. Nevermind. Asyou were. Gine em hell with the heartfelt craziness and have fun railing against injustice or whatever you prefer calling this thing you do.

I'm sorry your wife is cheating on you.

paswa17: I think it is ridiculous to consider baseball a competing league in January. Baseball is a dead league that time of year. Maybe through Week 9 the NFL and MLB are competing for ratings, but once the World Series is over, who gives a fark?

Baseball junkies can be spotted in January by their 1000 mile stares. To make sure its a baseball fan rather than a soldier with PTSD you can position yourself very close to one. In January baseball fans make a low almost inaudible chant-like noise. You might not even see their lips move if they are a lifetime fan. The noise they make sounds like : pitchers n catchers pitchers n catchers pitchers n catchers pitchers n catchers

//not hating them for what they do
///hating them for biatching about a stupid rule when these people have it MADE finacially

Yeah, but you have a pretty good chance at living into your 60s and being both mobile and coherent.

Well I am fat.... so 1 one out of 2 aint bad.

I was always told that being on fark proved incoherence. Was I misinformed?

The fact I half to give you.

But I ated it.

Smith should have responded to Goodell: "Hat, what hat? Oh that. I'm just wearing the hat of a sports team which has competent officials on the field when they play."

TonnageVT: Roger Goodell and the rest of the NFL cronies are less than 100 feet away from me. I really want to go in there and just slapping them.
