They should do weekly Friday Night Football games. I see a much bigger market potential than that over Thursday and Monday.

Friday night is high school football night in the US.

Reinebold will be on when the CFB season ends. So his appearance on sky will be about the same point in the season as usual.
I read he left the Alouettes for personal reasons and has since joined the U of Hawaii. Not sure if that impacts when or if he'll still be on Sky.

Yikes. From the news outlets:

A fight that ended with Aqib Talib's brother allegedly shooting and killing a youth football coach may have been started by the former NFL cornerback.

Witnesses have reportedly told Rebecca Lopez of Dallas' WFAA that Talib instigated the fight by crossing the field confronting the referees. The fight soon escalated, with one witness, coach Heith Mays, saying Talib threw the first punch against Mike Hickmon, who was shot moments later.

Watson suspended 11 games and his first game back is against you guessed it the Texans. I guess we really shouldn’t be surprised the NFL using this situation to push ratings but still doesn’t feel right at all.

I just don't get what part made sense for the Browns' front office, to take a chance on Watson and all this drama.

because they've not had a real QB since bernie kosar and that was a very long time ago.

whether or not he will be after so long out, watson was one of the best. and they've got him for at least 4 years after this one.

hence the desperation. even though they're scummy and stupid for the 5 years fully guaranteed.

He really is excellent. Remember how he played against the Raiders despite a less than stellar supporting cast. If they can get 4 years out of him, losing the bulk of 1, when he’s in his prime they will be laughing.

Fair points Voodoo and Killie, I ask because he's been out of action for a while, and will be even more by the time he comes back.

The NFL moves fast, so I wonder if he's going to get back to that level he showed. Browns definitely all in on him, I guess.

Sorry to disappoint any Browns fans here, but he is not all that. As someone who follows the Texans I have seen all his games as a pro and aside from looking great in his first season he has flattered to deceive. In countless games he puts up most of his yards late in the game when the game is already lost against prevent defences, I lost count of the number of times the Texans failed to score in the first quarter or even the whole first half. You might say that is because he didn't have a good team around him, but apart from his last season at the Texans they did have a decent team. 

Then you have to question his character. Regardless of his 'extra curricular activities', he seems more about himself than the team. The whole sweepstakes to sign him was very strange. He contacted the Falcons himself to ask them to bid for him, they were not in the race until then. So you would think he would pick the Falcons. Instead he flirted with them, and then went with a team he had already said were out of the race, the Browns, because they came back offering the most guaranteed money. So he went with the guaranteed money and in doing so ruined the Falcons relationship with Matt Ryan, leaving the Falcons without a QB. Supposedly the Falcons were the team he grew up supporting, and he screwed them over.

If I was a Browns fan signing Watson with all the controversy around him would be a win the Superbowl or bust move, and even then it would be a tainted victory. Personally for the reasons above, it is not impossible due to the great roster around him, but I would be very surprised if they win or even get to the Superbowl with Watson. They mortgaged their future for him and the roster around him is going to get gradually worse over the next few years.

And on the subject of his antics, he still says 'I did nothing wrong'. ???

Very much so. Hope they pay another QB (maybe Jimmy G) to try and stay competitive in the 11 games and it leaves them as badly placed as possible. They deserve to be hamstrung by this for years

The stand-in being close to or above .500 before Watson returns to lose every game would be nicely entertaining and should deliver them a crappy draft position.

It'd be amusing if he did his ACL or something in training. Or on his first snap vs the Texans once he's received the inevitable torrent of abuse.

He will get hostile receptions for many years. It's not like Michael Vick fighting some pitbulls because he did his time, but a lot of people will chant a lot of stuff and every down on the road all game will be like 3rd/4th down for him with the noise coming his way.

Needs at least a six game suspension to match Garrett doing it to Mason Rudolph. Granted that was during a game, but this is to rival teams players and he's on film attempting many strikes over a not short period of time.

Honestly think even six games is lenient, authorities need to apply every lever possible to stamp it out as something that instinct might consider during red mist - it could easily cave a guys skull in juts with one hit

What a colossal fuck up yet again by the Raiders  :butt

According to ESPN, Raiders are expected to trade or cut 2021 1st round pick OL Alex Leatherwood when the rosters are cut to 53 on Tuesday.

Whether this was Mayock or Gruden, another dumb, boneheaded pick when just about every projection told them they're reaching, but no, they knew a gem when they saw one of course. He was nowhere near competent at tackle or guard.

There's a reason why certain franchises are mired in mediocrity. It doesn't seem to matter how many picks you throw at them, they'll find a way to waste it.
