Semi-OT: Tebow returns to football

...and it's an NFL team that takes the flyer on him, of all things.

Hasn't been on a regular season roster in nine years, but it's Urban Meyer signing him.

Somewhere, Kaepernick is having a coronary.

Re: Reuters: TSL finds 'secret sauce' to survival

Here's how I would classify it: MINOR: Officially affiliated with the NFL (or any other professional league) and recognized as a lower level of play. There has not been a minor football league in this country since 1973. DEVELOPMENTAL: Similar to minor, but without the official affiliation, specific...

Re: TV Rights deals - Gen discussion

Making this the second property that FOX has gotten out of early in the last year--they cut out of the U.S. Open halfway through and it went back to NBC. Unlike CBS/Masters they didn't have a sole NFL window the week they were originally scheduled to do so. Golf is the least suited for FOX so that ...

Re: Reuters: TSL finds 'secret sauce' to survival

No he shouldn't be highlighting this as positive media coverage. Again, it's already mentioned in the piece that there's no player payroll. There's no need to do so beforehand in more activist terms. Really sloppy. No, it exposes Woods as a liar because it quotes Woods as still calling his league p...

Re: NFL Draft points of interest

Kinda answering my earlier question, what about guys playing right now or just recently finished their season who declare in the next couple weeks or so? I'm assuming that they'll go into the supplemental draft in July (Agyei-Obese and Barriere come to mind). Remember, the Bernie Kosar rule is stil...

Re: NFL Draft points of interest

So only about 50 non power 5 players were drafted?!!! That’s an incredible stat. Many more good football players will soon have to leave their careers/dreams behind. If only we had another avenue for these players to continue to play and develop! The NCAA is a joke when it comes to preferential tre...

Re: NBC out of NHL running - TNT in FOX out

NBC being out is not surprising. After the XFL whalloped them in the ratings, you had to think they were looking elsewhere. Turner is a little bit more of a surprise, given they already have the NBA, don't have a dedicated sports outlet, and have zero broadcast presence (unless they're planning putt...

Re: XFL not funding CFL return to play...

FCF is a glorified offseason fantasy project, nothing more. If it ever becomes real serious all the sudden you're going to have real costs that come with it (we saw how that worked with Fanchise in the past), so no need to blow it up into a thing. In a sense, though, that's what most offseason foot...

Re: XFL not funding CFL return to play...

I recall mentioning that 2022 is going to be an absolutely horrible year for the XFL to try and relaunch. You'll have to deal not only with a longer NFL season but with the Olympics, not to mention the glut of college basketball action that exists every year at that time. (I'll argue to an extent th...

Re: CFL postpones start; "target date" is now 8/5

They made their decision last year.

If they cancel again, there is zero reason to ever assume conditions will be better than they are now. It's literally NOW or NEVER. Choose wisely.
