Both Pouncey brothers have retired from the NFL.
Maurkice spent his whole career with the Steelers, and Mike played for the Dolphins &
Fun fact: he wanted the seal on the side to avoid being meme'd about blowjobs.
The turds are mad at the punch bowl: The NFL announced that all fans attending games this season will be required to wear "face coverings".

The AB thing is over a $4000 moving dispute.
A company he hired to store & ship his stuff back from California refused to unload it at his house because he refused to pay.

Gimmie AB's holdout drama over analysis of when statistics
So last week we talked a bit about the detail-free Alazona proposal being pitched by leading cites of industry, Birmingham, AL and Tucson, AZ to split hosting duties for the Location-Off Raiders domestic home games in 2019.
