  1. Just for fun, I'll provide one for each league MLB: DiMaggio's 56 consecutive games with a hit NBA: Bill Russell's 11 championships NFL: there are a lot to go with here. Don Shula's 347 victories, Emmitt Smith's career rushing yards, Favre's nearly 300 consecutive starts, and pretty much any Jerry Rice stat all come to mind. NHL: Gretzky's 2800+ career points...among nearly anything else Gretz did

    To be honest, I think we're making a mountain out of a molehill here, but he wouldn't be justified in feeling he got fined because of a media writer. The NFL doesn't just review highlights and big plays for fines. They look at all plays. Even if that hit didn't go viral, there's a chance he would have gotten a fine for it because it was an illegal block. So Nelson threw an illegal block, then got mad at the media guy for his fine.

    What's so tough about going to the media guy's office, slamming a paper on his desk, and demanding money for the fine?

    I find a lot of what you're saying interesting and perplexing. You'll take your own anecdotal and subjective experience over some study? You were the one who brought up studying psychology, and @Superman correctly stated that everyone responds to situations differently, but you choose to ignore established science in favour of your own subjective experience? Also, the whole point of the article was getting player feedback on Luck's actions. That's the exact data that they were looking for, if you want to put it in those terms. Now that they've gotten that "data" and are presenting it, you again choose to ignore it. What you're really saying is no matter how well-established anything is and no matter how many people disagree with you, you're going to believe what you want. That's a very short-sighted and close-minded attitude for someone who claims no one studies psychology anymore. No one said he's too mean. Just that some of his actions could improve. I think every Colts fan appreciates what Nelson brings to the team on and off the field, but that doesn't mean he's infallible.

    Respectfully, I disagree. It's very easy to disprove that Luck is soft. For one thing, he was one of the most hit QBs in the league and still continued to play and lead his team. He played through injuries, including a busted kidney. Simply making it to the NFL requires a ton of mental and physical toughness. Just because he compliments a defender and gets along with other NFL players, doesn't mean he's soft. As for "what you think you can do is as important as what you actually do", I have never seen Luck make any sort of suggestion about what he can't do, so I don't understand the relevance of that point. The implication of "you need a lil of that to become the best" is that Luck isn't already among the best; he is. He doesn't need to stomp around and beat his chest and tell the world he's the greatest ever. He just does his job to the best of his ability and does it very well. So again, I don't see how him acting obnoxiously or swearing or pouting would improve his play. Lastly, I don't think the aw shucks attitude is a routine. I think that's simply who he is. He's well-spoken, reserved, humble, gives credit to his teammates and takes responsibility for mistakes. Philip Rivers is a QB who pouts and trash-talks and he's gained a reputation as a whiny QB. Brady is infamous for always looking for a flag after any hit and that's given him that reputation. We have one of the best QBs in the league, he doesn't get into any trouble off the field, he's doing everything right, and people still find a way to complain that he's too nice.

    How would that make his game any better? He's one of the league's best QBs with his current approach; why would be need to change that?

    Are you saying Andrew Luck is soft?

    NFL vs Colin K settled

    While your service is greatly appreciated, there are many others who have served who believe the very reason why they serve is so Kaep can do this peaceful protest with his first amendment rights. In fact, it was an army veteran who suggested that Kaep kneel in the first place https://ftw.usatoday.com/2018/05/nfl-49ers-colin-kaepernick-national-anthem-protest-nate-boyer 1) The NFL gave him money because they did something wrong. They didn't just give him a gift out of nowhere 2) See above. Many service members were very supportive of Kaep's decision 3) Those who sacrificed their lives did so in order to maintain and uphold the principles that America values, including freedom of speech and freedom to protest peacefully. https://theundefeated.com/features/an-open-letter-from-american-military-veterans-in-support-of-colin-kaepernick/

    NFL vs Colin K settled

    Then why doesn't that apply to the owners/GMs? If politics have no place in the workplace, then shouldn't the owners and GMs ignore his politics and sign him regardless? Furthermore, he didn't "swindle" the league. He was treated unfairly and discriminated against, so the league had to compensate him for their own wrongdoing. So you're saying a business that thinks it has done nothing wrong will settle to give someone $80 mil just because it's cheaper than having lawyers? Can you point me in the direction of some of these companies? I'd love to have an extra $80 mil right now

    It's speculation, but that's what people in the NFL believe it is

    NFL vs Colin K settled

    You don't settle to give someone $80 mil unless you did something wrong. They didn't explicitly admit to anything, but if they really didn't do anything wrong, they wouldn't have settled. The NFL, and any employer for that matter, has the right to not employ an individual, but for whatever reason. That's the whole basis of this case. The NFL does not have the right to not sign a player because of his political beliefs. Like I said above, you don't pay someone $80 mil to settle unless you know you did something wrong. There's definitely something going on behind the scenes that the NFL didn't want exposed, so they settled. That could be anything. Tell us how you really feel..... Why does he deserve to be unsigned? He's not an elite QB, but he brings a lot to the table. He doesn't throw a lot of picks and he can run as well as. You really want to claim that he doesn't deserve to be on an NFL roster, but Nathan Peterman or Blake Bortles do?

    He was a 3-time Pro Bowler
  14. That's a little ridiculous. TY is a momma's boy, but has 950+ receiving yards in every season except 1. Luck doesn't have a killer mentality, but was top 5 in passing yards and TDs this year. Ebron is too nice, but was top 3 in TDs overall and was the #1 TE for TD receptions. These guys are classy and don't need to yell to the world about how great they are, a la Richard Sherman. They also don't need to play rough or dirty to have an edge over the opponent. These guys have talent and skill, and that's what leads to wins. Vontaze Burfict plays with an "edge", but all that has gotten him is a reputation as one of the league's dirtiest players.

    I saw reports that he got $80 mil from the NFL. They don't hand out that kind of money unless they did something wrong.

    Dumbest Post SB Issue Raised By The Media Today

    Yeah, that's how it works. For example, NFL Network is devoted to the NFL. When it's the NFL offseason, they still have to talk about football, so they'll talk about who has the best chance to repeat, what to look for in the upcoming offseason, the draft, etc. They can't discuss NBA or NHL scores, or the upcoming MLB season. They have to fill the air with something

    Dumbest Post SB Issue Raised By The Media Today

    What else do you want them to do? There aren't scores or big stories to talk about. It's just discussion topics for them to fill airtime and try to get some viewers and whatnot in the offseason, when things are generally slower. They have to fill their TV time up with something.

    Quenton Nelson Played With 2 Bulging Disc

    I wonder what his source is for this. I haven't been able to find any other reports on this. If true, that's absolutely insane.
  20. You're wrong. The article hasn't been over the internet over the past few days. My whole point is this is old news and WISH is trying to make something out of nothing. This article was posted on Jan 25 and mentions Rihanna, Jay-Z, and Cardi B. The article also makes Jermaine Dupri a central figure. Cardi B refused to participate in the Super Bowl on Dec. 21 (https://pagesix.com/2018/12/21/why-cardi-b-wont-perform-at-the-super-bowl-halftime-show/) Rihanna refused on Oct 18 (https://consequenceofsound.net/2018/10/rihanna-super-bowl-kaepernick/) Jermaine Dupri responded to Rihanna and Jay-Z's refusal many months ago (https://www.okayplayer.com/music/jermaine-dupri-superbowl-boycott.html). This is garbage news reporting by two-bit journalists who are trying to make something out of nothing. They're looking for reactions instead of reporting the facts. This is a sad excuse for journalism.
  21. In his defense, the Pelicans have done pretty much nothing to surround him with any talent since they drafted him. In this situation, I give Davis the benefit of the doubt because it's not like the team brought in another All-NBA talent and they won many playoff series. They were bad when they drafted him and are still bad. Had they surrounded him with talent and a winning team, he may have been more open to staying
  22. Anthony Davis won't re-sign with New Orleans, and is asking for a trade. It won't happen, but I'd love to see him in Indy. Imagine adding him to our current team
  23. Thank you both! I changed the title
  24. Maybe I'm misinterpreting here, but I don't see anything about a "new wave" of protests. This is the same stuff as before. Kaep has not said they're organizing anything new for the Super Bowl, and the many performers who refused to take part in the Super Bowl because of the Kaep situation did so many days/weeks ago, not recently. This isn't a new development in any story, but rather the re-hashing of an old story that WISH is bringing up out of nowhere. If I missed something, please let me know. Otherwise, I'm going to change the title of this thread because it's misleading and inaccurate
