→ A.J. Green embarrasses Darrelle Revis all day long in Bengals’ win

“Revis Island” seems like a pretty comfortable place to be these days.

→ NFL, NFLPA officially launch investigation into Cam Newton’s medical treatment

“After getting crushed in the media for 2 days, we’ve decided we should probably look into this…” – A person familiar with the matter.

→ Report: Steelers’ Le’Veon Bell facing 4-game suspension

That’s not forget that Tom Brady is the only real cheater in the NFL though….

→ Tom Brady is innocent

Joe Posnanski bringing the heat:

I think Tom Brady is unequivocally, unambiguously, thoroughly and 100-percent innocent of any and all charges of deflating footballs in a cheating capacity. I don’t think he ever asked anyone to illegally deflate footballs. I don’t think he wanted footballs inflated below NFL standards. I think the whole thing — every last page of the testimony, every last leak to the media, every text made public, every curious statistic like the one showing the Patriots fumbled less than other teams and every blunder Brady made along the way, like his awkward press conference and the destruction of his phone — was a bunch of phony-baloney nonsense that was either directly or indirectly inspired by a made-up NFL witch hunt. I think he’s entirely innocent.

→ Patriots rookie WR Malcolm Mitchell named Georgia’s children’s book author of the year

It’s hard not to root for this guy.

→ Seventh-grader shoots down NFL’s grand deflate-gate claims

Is it really that surprising that a 7th grader can figure out something that Goodell can’t?

→ NFL report contends home markets failed Rams, Raiders, Chargers

Are you serious? The home markets “failed” these NFL teams? This whole thing is disgusting. NFL teams demand public funds, tax breaks, etc… to get a stadium built and then make billions of dollars without actually benefiting the surrounding areas (despite claims they do.) Part of me feels bad for these areas losing their teams, but part just wants to invite them to join the growing crowd of people who thinks the NFL is a disgrace.

→ Odell Beckham’s war with Josh Norman leads to one-game suspension

Beckham’s hit was flat out dirty. I think he should have been suspended for more games.

→ Are we witnessing the decline of the great Darrelle Revis?

I’m not going to shed a tear at Revis’ decline. Couldn’t happen to a nice guy.

→ NFL defends ‘very good’ officials, says one Patriots penalty was called right

The NFL is such a joke. Of course the these horrible officials are “very good.”

→ Injury Update: Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski’s Knee Injury Not “Serious”

I’m going to continue holding my breath until Gronk’s back on the field.

→ Colts Violate Integrity of the Game in a Way that Bill Belichick Would Never Dream: The Injury Report

The Colts are a joke. I don’t care what the NFL does with this (mostly because that would involve Goodell making a decent decision), but just having this is the public eye is fantastic.

→ NCAA says daily fantasy participation could result in a year of lost eligibility

Not a surprise here. These “daily fantasy leagues” are gambling, plain and simple. At least the NCAA is evaluating this appropriately. The NFL and ESPN, meanwhile, talk about the “horrors” of gambling while having 3/4 of their programming sponsored by these ridiculous leagues.

→ Rex Ryan: Patriots aren’t exactly ‘Boy Scouts of America’

True. A Rex Ryan coached team might actually be able to get a win against a bunch of 10 year old boy scouts.

→ Bill Belichick lashes out at allegations and suspicions against Patriots

Belichick is the best. No wonder Patriots players want to run through a wall for him.

→ Hacked emails reveal Sony edited ‘Concussion’ to avoid NFL’s wrath

Shocking. I’m shocked.

Brady, the NFL, Etc…

The NFL upheld the suspension. Goodell is a joke. Robert Kraft finally really came at the league. Blah, blah, blah. I can’t seem to care anymore. This whole story has been ridiculous from the beginning, and now an incompetent commissioner is ruining the name of one of, if not the, greatest Quarterbacks of all time. At this point, I don’t feel like linking to any more of this garbage.

→ Tom Brady Negotiating with Roger Goodell for Settlement

I really hope that Brady sticks to his guns and refuses to accept any suspension at all.

→ Some ‘influential owners’ don’t want Tom Brady’s suspension reduced

Another example of just how stupid this whole thing is. “Influential owners” don’t want Brady’s suspension changed? Really? I cannot wait for this whole fiasco to be over.

→ DeflateGate: NFL Doesn’t Get It, No Current Changes to Football Procedures

Shocking. I’m shocked.
