Antonio Brown has officially requested a trade from the Steelers.

I bet he's going to the Lakers. They need a star to help Lebroids get to the playoffs. LMAO

Robert K. Kraft, the billionaire owner of the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots, was charged on Friday with two counts of soliciting sex as part of a wide-ranging investigation into prostitution and suspected human trafficking in South Florida.

Patriots Twitter quickly deleted an old '... love a story with a Happy Ending' Tweet after the Robert Kraft Bombshell dropped.

Seems money can't buy sex as easily as it can buy Super Bowls lol.

I could spend 10,000 words on how they have been blessed by the referees on so many occasions one can not keep accurate count (including eliminating the Saints this year who would likely have steamrolled them in the Superbowl) and so on to counter anything you might wish to bring up.

From the "Tuck Rule" when he got the one ring and screwed the Raiders, to "Deflate Gate" where Brady was suspended because of suspected cheating, but bottom line is none of that will change the fact they have the trophies.

So this argument is purely a wasted effort for either one of us to have.


Go Steelers :D

I was mostly joking, all teams spend money to win of course.

On a serious side, this will affect them some though, he will probably get suspended and/or fined as the NFL has strict rules for Owners same as they do players.

Any predictions?



The Warriors are tipping off as I'm typing, they took a nasty loss at home a few nights ago after leading by 30+ points.

I predict a massacre in the Staples Center tonight, I'm sure they are sick of hearing about it by now lmao.

Them crazy Canadians have done it, first time ever they are in the Finals, go Raptors.

It probably won't end well though, the Warriors are a force of nature few can handle.

Them big comebacks like they made tonight on the Bucks will not happen when they play the boys from Calli, they give them lads head-starts like that and they will get swept in four me thinks.

The Raptors are in the cat-bird seat going into game five tonight at home up 3-1, the question is can they hit pay dirt on their first ever finals appearance?

In fairness the Warriors have been without Durant the entire series and if the tables were turned and the Raptors were missing Kawhi Leonard for the first four games, one has to wonder if they would not already be done... my thinking is they would be.



Well it looks like Durant may well play tonight, will it matter, probably even if he is not at a 100% which he won't be, he will have a mental impact on them.

Trivia:
Toronto allowed Kobe Bryant to score 81 points on Jan. 22, 2006. In the 1,175 Raptors games since, the most anyone has scored against them is 51 points - done twice, done both times in Toronto, and done both times by Durant.


In other news Rafa did indeed add the 12th major clay title to his already stellar career.
