Re: Players Holding Out

Why aren’t teams held to that standard in football? Because much of a NFL contract is not guaranteed. IF the NFL had guarnteed contracts like othe sports, the face value of the contracts would drop significantly because of the injury risk. But, all of this is meaningless because everyone knows that...

Re: Downtown St. Paul's homeless encampment may have to go

It's got to be really tough being homeless. Absolutely brutal during the Minnesota winters. Then why be homeless in Minnesota? No job to go to so nothing but time. Start walking South. At 5mph for 12 hours you would cover 1200 miles in 20 days. No idea. Maybe ask a homeless guy next time you see on...

Re: Players Holding Out

You signed a contract. If you're under a contract you should honor it. If the team wants to work with you on a new one great. If not....honor what you agreed to.

Re: A 53-man roster projection for the 2019 Vikings

1. I think Browning makes the practice squad. They have $140,000 guaranteed in his deal so I think they want to keep him around for another preseason. 2. Armon Watts should make the roster. Not sure if I risk him on the practice squad. 3. I do not see all of Bene Benwikere, Duke Thomas, Derron Smith...

Re: “Dolt” un Hill

Play looked really bad in slow motion because it ended up being helmet to helmet. In live time when it happened, I thought damn Lynch went down right before he got to Hill. It was a legit penalty but he clearly tried to go low because he thought Lynch was going to try and run him over. Lynch at 6'7...

On a different, but related topic, what is the probability that bush comes back for women?

One fact that is clear to me, for some women, having a shaved pussy looks awful and they really need pubes to camouflage it a bit.

Except it is in the same universe because rights are being violated in both cases. The problem is that in just about every statute on the books "rights" are being violated.

Seems like a rather harsh sentence. I wonder what they offered before the jury trial as a deal? Most of the time there is more to the story.
Again, he waived his right to a jury trial. Also, he's been charged before, so no probation this time.
Ok. That probably explains it.

There is an argument to be made that Saul is better than Breaking Bad. I liked GOT, but I would have to say I am not a fan.

It would be unwise for the Vikings to have Vedvik be BOTH the kicker and punter if you’re not also going to roster a full-time holder.

Having a holder be a player who also plays another position on offense or defense is not wise.
