War Damn Eagle / Deshaun Gettin' Closer To Closure
« Last post by Snaggletiger on June 21, 2022, 03:17:20 PM »
NFL talk for those that care.  Former Clemson QB, Deshaun Watson, has been facing 24 civil lawsuits from different massage therapists who claim he showed them his pee-pee, or touched their Hoo-Ha's, or other various and sundry sexual chocolate inappropriatenesses.

Today, they announced he has settled 20 of the 24, and working on the others.  Confidential, of course.  Being in the lawyerin' profession, I'm well aware that settling can mean a lot of things.  It can mean I screwed up and don't want to put the details in front of a jury, and/or the public. It could be there isn't much to the claims, and let's throw some nuisance value money at them and move on.  In a case like this, with so many suits, it probably means nobody has the money, or the time to take this through years of discovery, preparing it for court, so let's put some decent cash in pocket, and go back to rubbing nekkid men's bodies.  Not a bad payday for seeing an NFL QB's man parts.

If I had to guess, the NFL will suspend Watson for this year, and the Browns have royally fucked themselves.  Unless, there's some clause that says they don't have to pay him, but I don't think that's the case. Totally alienated your #1 pick in Baker Mayfield when they signed Watson.

I bitched about this to Jar/Buzz last night, but my tighty whities are still in a bunch.  The Braves did win with a walk off single last night, but to hear the post-game announcers say, “Snitker pushed all the right buttons”, gives me the gout.

If you have a tie game in the bottom of the 8th, you get your first two men on with no outs.  The two fastest guys on the team, BTW.  Your second place hitter at the plate.  One of the best closers in the game ready to pitch the 9th.  FOR GAWD SAKE, sacrifice the runners over.  You have 2nd and 3rd with one out and a simple fly ball basically gives you the game.  A ground out to the right side gives you the game.  You think any of that ever crossed Snitker’s brilliant baseball mind?  Hell no.  Bam….shot to the shortstop.  Double play.  Next batter, fly out that would have given you the game.

This is not football, where you holler WTF are you doing continuing to rush 3 while they’ve scored 35 straight points on you.  It’s not basketball where you complain that we’re taking way too many outside shots and need to get the ball inside.  This is Baseball For Dummies 101.  But, I guess the fans didn’t come to see you do something boring like bunt.  It’s swing so fucking hard at every pitch that you spin around and hit the ump with the bat. 

I’ve been on this soap box this entire season.  It’s not going to change.   

It's all ball bearings launch angles and exit velocity now.

Louisville just landed the #2 RB in the nation.... sheesh.  :wtf:

Crank up the NIL $$$.  They already have the #2 wide receiver prospect in the fold.

No doubt the big nasties are priority 1, but getting a commit from Montgomery Catholic RB, Jeremiah Cobb, would be a nice shot in the arm.  I don't put much stock in crystal balls and projections etc., but for what it's worth, everyone sees him playing for Coach Bryman Hatpin's bunch.

4* and listed as the #8 running back in the nation.  In 2021-22, he had 2,163 yards (155 YPG) with 30 TD's.  Also, 561 yards receiving with 8 TD's.

Arkansas went through 6 of them last count I had.

In about 5 innings.  It was glorious.

Booooooooo.

A DL , TE, corner? I wouldn’t care. We need big uglies. He had us, penn st and Michigan scheduled for ov this week. And we were the ones who got cancelled. Over the two northern teams. Just gives me a bad feeling.

Really happy to see the bats wake up a bit. 

I'm happy to be getting a dejected Arky with a loss on 'em.  Wouldn't want to have to beat them twice in a row.  Also happy to make OM beat us twice.  That will be a tall order, hot as they are.

They both burned up more pitchers than they wanted. Arkansas went through 6 of them last count I had.
