And now the Giants are making Gruden look like a genius in comparison

Touching down the New England Patriots way

Gruden lets Mack go, says he isn’t worth the $23.5 million. Signs a WR, who is 3 years older then Mack, for $19 million a season.

Do you know what contracts are? Awards? Collective Bargaining Agreements?

Conditions in one role, industry or organization are. It the same as the next

When sport attacks civil liberties: The NRL’s no-fault stand down

What has gone unmentioned is that Greenburg is the deciding factor on what is a suspension and what is not. He doesn’t have the greatest track record in this regard. Remember he decided to take no action against Ben Barba a few years ago, after apparently looking at all the evidence. Apparently bruises aren’t evidence. That hasn’t turned out well.

Then he decided to give a character reference to a player facing court. He doesn’t see the hypocrisy in this? Did doing this mean that players thought they had a green light? If Greenburg won’t punish Inglis, but actively try and prevent him being held accountable, will he take it easy on them?

Players who are found guilty in court need to have severe punishments handed to them by the league. But useless administrators need to be held accountable too

What has he done to bring the game into disrepute? An allegation is simply an allegation.

Let the courts decide

When sport attacks civil liberties: The NRL’s no-fault stand down

It’s been done to death, but there are actually two debates – should the NRL suspend him and could they suspend him.

The latter needs to be answered first, and the hearing that was supposed to begin today (NRL are useless so it didn’t) and the one the RLPA are preparing (NRL in breach of CBA) will determine that. After those legalities have been sorted then the matter of if he should can be sorted.

The NRL should have renegotiated the CBA in the last couple of weeks, and public opinion would force the RLPA go along. Once ratified then suspend the players. Beattie cracked too easy under the media pressure

Why wasn’t his case heard today?

Classic Greenburg/Beattie NRL. Incompentant fools

What about existing sponsorships?

St George Bank have no right to, he has not been found in breach of his contract in way. Whether he does or not is irrelevant to his circumstances today

“Court documents also show de Belin stands to lose sponsorship deals, Blues selection chances from the ARLC and NRL’s “unconscionable conduct” which amounts to an unlawful restraint of trade.”

The money the NRL makes from its behaviour crackdown will easily finance the lawsuits

Yeh, you really don’t understand the subject at all, do you? It has zero to do with wrongful accusations or wrongful arrests, or the fact they are still getting paid

The player will sue for loss of income (marketing, promotions, etc)and damage to reputation. And will win

The Players Union and the NRL entered into a Collective Bargaining Agreement, that was ratified by all parties in November 2017. This CBA covered player behaviour and punishment, which again was agreed to by all parties. The NRL has breached this legally binding contract.

The first player that gets stood down by the NRL and isn’t found guilty will take the NRL, Greenburg and Beattie for millions

It’s a distraction by the NRL to take the focus away from the scandals

It’s not really a crap shoot. There is a correlation between completion rates in college and completion rates in the NFL, there are studies out there that show this. Compare the completion rates of the starters you listed against those that were 1st round busts. Even a guy like RG3 had a high completion rate at both levels before the knee injury. Guys with a high completion percentage that failed had a poor TD-INT ratio (manziel, Ponder, russell, Sanchez, Weedon).

Elway signs QB’s based on the idea of a prototypical QB – tall and with arm strength. In fact the three tallest QB’s since 1995 have been signed by Elway (Osweiler & Lynch both 6’7″ and Flacco 6’6″).

Of those 19 first rounders how many were under 6’1″? I’ll take under 2.5. They are drafted on type rather then true talent. Because all teams do it it is considered no risk and the right thing to do. And when they fail it is blamed on the player, not the fact he shouldn’t have been drafted so high in the first place. Brees and Wilson fell in the draft because of their height

Elway or the highway: Denver treading water with Joe Flacco

He also signed Manning (which was only successful due to the awesome defense), Osweiler, Siemian, Kevin Hogan, Keenum, Christian Ponder, Paxton Lynch (1st round LOL), Chad Kelly, Bryn Renner, Ryan Katz, Zac Dysert, Caleb Hanie,

Elway or the highway: Denver treading water with Joe Flacco

LOL, you want consistency.

Played A gets caught speeding and over the limit and Todd gives him a character reference. Hardly a cleanskin, Player A previously had been charged with assaulting his girlfriend, and had to attend a court ordered anger management course as a result.

Player B has consensual sex, its recorded by a 3rd party and released by another party without anybodys consent. Player B, although he is the victim here, will most likely be watching and not playing the first 6 weeks of the season

Dylan Napa has 'no idea' how videos were leaked

He didn’t fight the charges because he was too successful?

Will there be a way back for Darren Weir?

Take Brady away from Belichick and he has nowhere near the success. Put him in GB with Mike McCarthy and Rodgers in NE with Belichick and the SB win count for each team would still be the same

Bill Belichick is the GOAT, not Brady
