I feel like for the longest time there was just Janikowski, but then Prater got there and suddenly everyone except Parkey could do it. It's the football equivalent of how all relievers throw at least 95 mph now.

What was the point of that timeout? Was the defense call not correct or something?

Re: Addison Russell

Chiefs > Cubs As far as releasing the scum bag, sure. But pretty sure they had knowledge of the incident way before today. They knew about in August as did the NFL, which is something they should be held accountable for. Of course, I would have a difficult time believing that the Cubs found out via...

So, your argument is that a water spray feels worse than rubbing dry paper over it?


Baby/toilet wipes is the solution.

No week 12 thread yet, but wow. The refs totally missed the hit right at the helmet of Jordan Reed at the end of the game. I don't know how the flag wasn't thrown there.

Re: Week 12: Bears @ Lions Turkey Day on CBS at 11:30

Fun fact, if the Bears win the Super Bowl and the Raiders get the #1 pick, the Mack trade would result in the Bears tradin the #32 pick for the #33 pick. only if they win again next season. The 1/2 swap isn't until 2020 draft. Jersey is right. It's the 2020 draft. Chicago Bears: DE Khalil Mack 2020...

Re: Is there a sports cards discussion?

This thread is timely, I was going through some keepsakes and found one of the few cards I kept, a 1996 Topps Stars Jordan atomic refractor.

I'm still stumped that Parkey got a 4 yr/15 mil deal.
