The NFL Doesn’t Care About Spousal Abuse? Excuse Me For Not Being Shocked…Or Enraged

For the record, I do think this guy is a piece of shit

For the record, I do think this guy is a piece of shit

THIS IS AN OUTRAGE. RAY RICE ONLY GOT TWO GAMES WHEN JOSH GORDON GOT A YEAR? THIS IS JUST…

Hold up, this doesn’t feel right. Let me clear my throat and try again.

I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT RAY RICE ONLY GOT TWO GAMES FOR BEATING A WOMAN. WHAT KIND OF MESSAGE DOES THIS SEND TO…

Sorry, sorry. One second. I was distracted. Let me try one more time.

ROGER GOODELL IS A HYPOCRITE AND AN AWFUL HUMAN BEING. I WILL NEVER GIVE MY MONEY TO ANY NFL PRODUCT ANYMORE! I HOPE YOU LIKE SEEING EMPTY SEATS AT STADIUMS, FUHRER, BECAUSE YOU’LL BE SEEING THEM EVERYWHERE, NOT JUST JACKSONVILLE! FUCK YOU AND FUCK…

Shit. I almost got through it, but I can’t do it. I can’t pretend to summon the necessary outrage. Continue reading

Laces Out Episode Nine: Sponsored by Arm & Hammer Baking Soda!

On Thursday night, Ben and I got together to record our thoughts on the Jimmy Graham decision, fantasy football and how it makes one of us want to quit forever, and then we spend some time talking about NBA Free Agency. Keep in mind, this was recorded before LeBron made his decision, so it’s a little outdated. And when that Nate guy says he thinks LeBron is going to stay in Miami, remember that he was just joking!

Stream is below. Enjoy!

Hey, Did You Know Jimmy Graham is a Tight End? A Bunch of Lawyers Told Me!

The NFL has ruled that Jimmy Graham is a tight end.

They went on to rule that water is wet, the sky is blue, and Jerry Jones is a terrible GM.

“This is the worst thing I’ve experienced since lining up against Aqib Talib.”

Honestly, this doesn’t change much. It might make Jimmy a little bitter at his team, but I’m sure Mickey Loomis will be able to assuage his reservations with a good deal. Honestly, this entire thing is a non-story, but since it’s the offseason, it immediately has jumped to the top of every NFL fan’s story list.

Hopefully Jimmy will get enough ice cream to keep him happy, and he’ll be eager to help the Saints going forward.

In other news, it’s July, which means we’re a month away from meaningless NFL action, and two months away from slightly less meaningless NFL action! Expect more coverage, more podcasts, and just as much snarky whining as before! The Footbawl Blog: where you get 8 months of crying in a 12 month package!

Laces Out Episode Eight: And Only Two Months Late!

A few months ago we recorded a podcast with Tom Holzerman, known for his prolific and entertaining work at The Wrestling Blog. We talked for 40 minutes about football, free agency, and Wrestlemania, which had just happened.

Around the same time, we lost our podcast hosting site. And for two months, I ignored the problem because the offseason makes my brain goopy. I finally have resolved the issue and now present, finally, the latest episode of Laces Out!

Now that the issue is resolved, there should be one soon. After all, there have been so many exciting football things, such as…

Um…

Fuck it, enjoy this one!
