    “You have a game now, where the fans don’t know the rules.”

    The fans? Hell, the damn OFFICIALS don’t know the rules!

    • Huge Bear’s Penis

      and the players, coaches, owners, television analysts…..

      Its a conspiracy by Goodell to move a team to London. His thinking, NFL doesn’t care that the people of London or anywhere else outside the country understands the rules because no one in the States no them either.

      • AlbertInTucson

        In case MY opinion on London games isn’t clear:

        Piss. On. That.

        • Irish Sweetness

          Let’s move the Fudger franchise there. Old team to the Old town.

      • The GP

        Ron Jeremy wants the Jaguars to move to London. the deal with the next few years is that the Jags are always one of the teams.

    Jeff, from last thread regarding sports bars in Scottsdale:

    Jeff, I grew up in Scottsdale. My favorite sports bar to watch the game was called Goldies bar and grill, packed on Sundays and has the best chicken wings I’ve ever tasted.
    There’s only one location of Goldies and if you can’t make it there don’t worry because they(Goldies ownership) openned a chain called Zipp’s. Zipp’s are all over the valley, all have the Sunday Ticket, and serve the same delicious wings as Goldies. I live in San Francisco now and have no access to such fine wings. I literally find myself having dreams of those wings regularly.
    Goldies/Zipps also setve 32oz draft beers, which I also love.

  • DocNitty Ellipsoids Ornamental

    Good idea, Jefe. Let’s make it happen!

    And now, a word from our sponsor…



    He’s gone from Super Bowl Quarterback…



    …to locker room monkey-wrench.



    From posing and talking smack…



    …to a seat on the 9ers bench.

        Orson Welles was all of 26 years old when he made Citizen Kane.

        • Cormonster

          One of my best friends lived in the house where Orson Welles was born for about 5 years. Naturally, the place was haunted.

          • MB30SD

            fuck that haunted shit corm. I don’t play with that shit. Not sure I totally believe it, but want absolutely NOTHING to do with any of it.

            I would never live in a fucking haunted house, fuuuuuuck that noise maings.

          • Cormonster

            My buddy’s wife used to get a little freaked out because the house would make strange noises sometimes. It was an old house with radiated heat, and old houses can make weird noises sometimes. And like any old house, sometimes the bedroom door would close on its own, most likely from a sudden draft. Or the bathroom sink would start running super hot water for no reason, most likely due to old plumbing fixtures.

          • MB30SD

            Most likely FUCK THAT NOISE!

        • Irish Sweetness

          Incredible achievement. Awesome movie.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Burma-Shave aside, have to figure that this is just an attemt at a wake-up call for Colin K and he will be back at the helm there sooner, rather than later.

  • EnderWiggin

    Fantastic Idea.

  • The GP

    I saw some highlights from the Broncos Pack game.

    Manning didn’t throw a TD. He looked BETTER, but not super sharp.

    Hardly his “statement” game. This isn’t like the night Farve’s dad died and he just played his mind out.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Clearly, the Bronco defense won them another game.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Nah. I watched the whole game. He was awesome. Made plays all over the place. He was possessed.

      • DocNitty Ellipsoids Ornamental

        Wow. And that’s saying something given your vitriol for the man who stole our trophy in ought six .

        • Irish Sweetness

          His age aside, he was on fire. Whoever was writing in the media that he had no deep ball was on crack.

      “That’s like Batman losing his job to Paul Blart”.

      That’s damn funny. Also a giant fuck you to Blaine Gabbert. Which is fine.

      • MB30SD

        yes johnny, fuck blaine gabbert in his silly little face.

    • Sactowns#1

      Are you kidding me? All the whiney Niners fans up here have been filling my FB and Twitter feeds with nothing but piss and moan. You couldn’t avoid the news if you tried.

      • MB30SD

        fuck the 9ers

    • BillW

      So picking a quarterback is really just a K(r)ap shoot.

      • BillW

        And I’d only be preaching to the choir if I pointed out how 49er and Rword fans dissed Cutler while praising their now worthless qbs.

        Actually I don’t know if they did but there is enough truthiness to believe it

    • NewBearInTown

      Just goes to show that outside of a couple of rare talents, the league’s quarterbacks only play well when they’re paired with a coach that fits them.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Matt Forte.

    Does he see the field again this season?

    • Sactowns#1

      Of course he does. In fact I think it’s 50/50 that he’s back out there on Monday night.

      • AlbertInTucson

        The timetable is given as “uncertain”.

        I think that’s code for “Weeks, at least”.

        I certainly do NOT expect to see him on Monday.

        • All the guys with ties in to the locker room have said they expect him to be out 2-3 weeks.

          • AlbertInTucson

            So, there you go.

  • BerwynBomber

    The low hanging fruit is to institute a pre-draft lottery a’la’ the NBA. Don’t know why the NFL doesn’t do this, but eventually they will, if only because they could milk two or three hours of gonzo ratings out of such a program, and the NFL leaves no stone unturned under which revenue might be hidden.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Browns wouldn’t shift JT to Denver for less than than a first and another high pick.

    • willbest

      Except that Denver’s first rounder is going to be 25+. And you don’t just find probowl LTs on the street, even if he only does have a few good years left in him.

    • Cormonster

      And rightly so. The dude’s an 8 time Pro Bowler who’s never missed an NFL game. I don’t think he ever missed a game in college either. He’s what every team dreams of when they pick a top 10 LT.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Outstanding OTs are getting as scarce as outstanding QBs anymore.

  • Irish Sweetness

    Pierre Thomas to the Niners. To the waiver wire, boys.

    • AlbertInTucson

      It was a BAD weekend in the NFL. Forte, Steve Smith, L’Evion Bell, Keenan Allen, Carlos Hyde. Forte’s the only one not on IR.

      • Hyde’s not on IR, is he? Last I heard, he’s expected back in week 11 (after their week 10 bye)

    • Yeah, cuz the 9ers are gonna be a power house o w gabbert inthat division. This iswhy I’m goodat ff .
      Next year, Irish!

  • BillW

    Per the trib a presser tomorrow will say the Fox Lake cop did commit suicide

    As speculated. But still so many questions.

  • DocNitty Ellipsoids Ornamental

    Wait. We lost to the Lions and the Vikings? WTF?!?!?

    • MB30SD

      yeah, that. smfh.

    • beninnorcal

      We could repeat lose to the Vikes on account of them beating us at our house, but I think we’ll beat Detroit back at Soldier pretty handily.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Dude, have you been travelling through wormholes again?

  • With Pep Hamilton fired, the only coach who has worked with Cutler in Chicago and is still in the NFL in the same position (or a higher one) is now Lovie Smith, who is 5-18 as a head coach in the post-Cutler years.

    Coach Killer, or simply a decent QB surrounded by people who were in over their heads?

    • Trac

      Well, Lovie prolly has 1 more year left in Tampa before the clock strikes 12.

    • Huge Bear’s Penis

      Matt Cavanaugh was the QB coach under Tresticle, he is now the QB coach in Washington. Still not a glowing endorsement considering Washington’s QB situation.

  • Trac

    Oh boy, what an amazing last day of free agency. It was so exciting that butch had to change his skivvies last night. Hee hee
