NFL News:

  • Josh Gordon has filed for reinstatement to the NFL. 
    • If reinstated, he immediately becomes eligible for further punishment from his December 20th suspension.
      • He missed the Pats final two games & the playoffs.
      • Protocol dictates he’s looking at another six regular season games, unless ol’ Rog counts the playoff games missed.
  • Also awaiting further punishment is Orlando, Florida, which has been chosen to host the 2020 Pro Bowl.
    • This will be the fourth year in a row.
    • It is not known if other cities bid for “honor”, but the NFL shines that turd by proclaiming, “We’re thrilled to return to Orlando for the fourth year in a row and bring the Pro Bowl experience to the city of Orlando, our fans, players and partners.”
  • Not wanting to be punished are the citizens of Winnipeg, as only 8,944 tickets have been sold for the Raiders preseason game versus Green Bay.
    A bad idea machine.
    • Florio states the obvious reasons:
      • One of the problems could be the price point. Via Brooks, the cheapest ticket costs $191.50 Canadian. This equates to $143.70 in American dollars, under the current conversion rate. And that’s a lot of money for a glorified scrimmage in full pads. Even if it’s the supposedly critical third preseason game.
  • Robert Quinn has broken his hand during scrimmages.
    • This is on the heels of perennially injured DL Sean Lee being hurt again.
    • Quinn is expected to have surgery on the hand & sit out the preseason.
      • Like Zeke!

You know what isn’t stupid? Being part of the [DFO] EPL footytipping. It’s real easy to join:

  1. Go to this site right here.
  2. The password is “doorfliesopen”
  3. Create a username & password for the footytips site that is separate from your ESPN account.
    • Even though both are part of ESPN, they are separate entities, so keep them that way.
  4. Profit!

I’m unsure about the last one, but there have been rumours of a surprise for the winner.
