Here is my biased stance on why Graham won't get WR money if tagged.
The position you play has noothing to do with where you line up on the field. In 2009 (I think) most of Zach Strief's playing time came in when he was an extra tackle reporting as an eligible receiver, so most of his playing t...

If there really is something wrong Generation Y (which I personally would argue there is nothing different from any other generation) it is entirely the new age parenting BS popularized by Gen X.

The cameras are owned by the network broadcasting the game. It would be a pain for each week a new crew setting up their end zone cameras and taking them down.
Also more mobile cameras make more sense for them financially. Cost less money and they don't really give a damn if every call is correc...

The reasonit is a big deal for the NFL is that the NFL may have known the dangers of concussions and hidden them from the players. The NCAA doesn't have the same cloud hanging over it so there is no legal grounds to sue....

The consensus in the reddit thread on this was that the fluorescents in the building start to hum and vibrate as they go bad. The humming has caused the statue to turn because the bottom isn't perfectly round and the statue is either unbalanced or the display case is at a slight incline. It explains...

Depends on what he wants honestly. If he wants an up to date stadium the Coors would be a good choice. For history he should go to Wriggly. And as for Detroit I think it is under rated, I enjoyed going to games and the atmosphere when my dad went on business trips and took me with him....

Tiger Stadium, July 30-31
Wriggly, August 19-22
