Funny this is coming off the news of Gregory Robinson caught with 157 lbs of marijuana. Guy must have got wind of the news early and was stocking up!

I am curious how that's going to go down because its fishy. Seems to me they got caught up with the wrong crowd and got forced to do something. Why in their right minds would they do it to sell it?  Greg has made over 30 million and Bray had to make some decent money . Not to mention its legal in tons of states and a drive to illinois or colorado is a heck of a lot closer to Mexico. I could typically give a crap less when it comes to this stuff but this one begs some serious questions.

True, but I think they'll view recreational smoking and trafficking on a different level.

I'm not talking about the NFL here I am talking about court.

NFL should use the dropping suspensions for weed as a bargaining chip to get more concessions from the players.  Players union probably wants to see it go more but the NFL has to know that the policy at best doesn't help them and at worst hurts them.  

 

But they could probably pull a concession or 2 from the players to get rid of that policy.

Pablo Escobar was a billionaire and continued producing and trafficking cocaine.

    • A question, and this isn’t to start anything, I’m genuinely curious: what are your thoughts of Ballard on a macro level? We’ve had him for a while now, so he has a decent body of work to judge from. I know you usually analyze specific transactions...
    • I will disagree...at least that it’s been a full effort over the long haul...instead of a more recent effort.    At WR...those two 2nd round picks were in years 3-4 of his roster building. He drafted SEVEN other players/positions in the 2nd round (alone) before he used one on a pass catcher...SEVEN...when this team had nobody beyond Hilton at WR. He even passed on AJ Brown and Deebo Samuel to draft some project DE who is currently buried on the depth chart.    Before he drafted Campbell, his first attempt was to draft two late-round lotto ticket WRs to develop...a very low % type of move that rarely works at the WR position.    And he had to know he was depriorotizing the WR position and that those late round WRs were risky to rely on...so to try to help offset that...he signed middling FA WRs to one-year FA contracts...to hopefully catch lighting in a bottle and patch a hole on the roster. But a stopgap measure exists in part because you aren’t willing or able to fully invest in that position yet...aka it’s a half measure (some might even say half *). Ballard did that 3 years in a row.   At TE...there’s been far less. Despite coming from an organization that drafted and developed an elite TE...and seeing that impact firsthand...he has drafted ZERO TEs across 38 draft picks...and instead has focused on UDFAs and stopgap FAs. He did hit with Ebron for one year...but again...that was a stopgap signing. Then this past offseason...with Ebron leaving...he throws a vet min contract at a broken down Trey Burton. The fact that the average age of the Colts TE depth chart was like 29 this year (before Burton got hurt and they added the UDFA)...speaks to how much effort has been put into drafting and developing young TEs over the past few years.   At RB...he did draft an APB in Hines...but that was an early Day 3 pick.  Until Taylor...all of the RB picks were Day 3 picks.   I know that’s a harsh critique...and I am not trying to disparage Ballard for his roster building. But looking at it objectively...there has clearly been far more effort given to other positions until recently.   Going forward...I don’t think we will see a WR taken in the 1st round...but Day Two pass catchers hopefully are the norm.

    • The Colts knew he was "injured" but acted shocked that it was considered serious by Ebron. 
    • It's not incorrect. Everyone knew about the injury. The only surprise was that he pulled the plug.
