Doesn't Hunt still face a possible suspension for part/all of the upcoming season?

Two things. NFL likely was afraid of discovery, if the case moved forward. Kaepernick had his price.

Can't imagine Ghandi or MLK settling for cash, can you?

In the end, there was more Tawana Brawley than Rose Parks reflected in those knelt-downs of his.

Maybe you should just cede that you and others were wrong about this guy, instead of launching yet another personal attack, merely because I don't root for your team, joshie.

That's quite an assertion, barrister. But didn't they teach you in law school to support an argument with something factual?

The fact us, the QB who knelt for the oppressed, just cashed in. He took money, and went from kneeling down for his principled, to lying down for a payoff.

Find one post of mine that opposed his kneeling. Find a post where I chastised him for his race.

Then get back to me on that racist label you like to toss around as casually as your bigoted Ohioan friend uses the term Nazi, and apologize.

Recognize the you made a mistake, and own up to it.

If you're able to do so.

I called you a racist be ause you have demonstrated your racism in post after post, issue after issue, for.20 years on the NYT forum and here. You are a racist fuck. You would remain a racist fuck regardless of your position on Kaepernick.

I see.

You have your own stats.

Clearly, then, you don't know the meaning of the word, counselor.

Off you go, now, back to a world of your own creation.

Do get back to us, once you've recovered from speaking with the devil himself.

I used to wonder if you were a racist or just a fucking self righteous asshole.  Then I realized they were not mutually exclusive alternatives.

Kaep was probably unfairly denied the opportunity to ply his trade by owner collusion. I see no problem with him being compenansated for his lost opportunity and wages due to an illegal conspiracy.

As far as I know while he can not discuss the details of the settlement, he is free to speak his mind about any issue and continue to be a social actvist.

And this settlement is cheap for the NFL, probably $2-3 miilion max per owner, the cost of one bad contract, and they avoid the embarrassment of disclosed e-mails likely revealing the collusion, maybe racism, and maybe shots at Trump.

This is not my work, so I can't attest to it, (I've done similar stuff) but others have checked off on this, so I'm posting it here.

It general it addresses and rebuts the "AFC East is easy" argument in discussing the Pats success.


"If you remove the winner of every division since 2001, and look at the records of only teams 2-4 against teams outside their division, the AFC East has the best record since 2001. In other words, teams 2-4 in the AFC East perform better against non-division opponents than the 2-4 teams in any other division. The AFC East is full of mediocre teams that would be 9-11 win teams in other divisions if they weren’t losing to the Patriots. It rarely has bum teams, like the Browns, Raiders, Jaguars were for so long."

So, no, “AFC East” is not a valid answer to this question.

I've never wondered about you, being the pretentious and supercilious boor that you are.
