The Seahawks made a great move by signing Dunbar, but unfortunately, the stupid fuck just committed armed robbery and will likely end up getting a long prison sentence. He had a semi automatic gun...mad.

What a moron - apparently he got angry at something that happened during a card game and so just decided to rob everyone. :patsch :lol:
Imagine being in a cell in a few years time, having no money because you've spent it all on lawyers, barely any people are still interested in you, your career is over and you have to think about the fact that you threw away millions of dollars playing sport because you got pissed off during a card game :lol:

At least he can take solace in the fact that he had a marginally better excuse than Aaron "You spilled drinks on my suit" Hernandez.

So the most expensive stadium in the world swells up to +$5 billion. Unlike the majority of NFL stadiums, somehow this is privately financed
It could only have been privately financed with NFL support, since the residents there wouldn't even authorize a 5,000 seat venue if it was up to them. Given the choice, their residents might even pay to kick the NFL back out of their city. (Meanwhile, Oakland somehow loses the Raiders AGAIN, despite the wholly appropriate presence of sewage backup at the Oakland-Alameda County Toilet Bowl. That franchise will only work in Las Vegas if they change that stupid name of Allegiant Stadium to Bugsy Siegal Arena. (What the fuck is a domed stadium doing in the middle of the Mojave Desert anyways?)

Since NFL teams only use like 10-12 dates, building a new stadium becomes a giant waste of tax money. Of course, somebody could just pull a Kroenke if they have the pockets for it, which as you explained, said city says no to tax-payer stadium, and the owner just builds one 100% out of his own pocket. It's the reason why LA didn't have a team for 20+ years because the NFL couldn't get the city to subsidize them. The funny thing is, LA may have been willing to subsidize the Raiders in '94 had the massive Northridge earthquake not happened which basically removed any chance of an LA publicly subsidized stadium

Meanwhile, a 4th NFL player has been arrested on gun charges in as many days. :patsch:lol:
Free time is the devil
This is the sort of thing which makes me pine for the 1960's and 1970's, when responsible NFL players needed college degrees and regular jobs while not playing for economic reasons. It kept them out of trouble and imparted a further sense of discipline while reinforcing the concept of having to work with others to be successful. They couldn't afford free time aside from the vacations enjoyed by non athletes.

Back in the 60's, Green Bay Packers WR Max McGee would be caught speeding after curfew and get his name in the newspaper for that citation, raising Lombardi's explosive ire before the whole team. Now we have this shit...:

Bobby Layne, Sonny Jurgensen, Doug Atkins, Mike Ditka and Joe Namath were certainly party animals, but they weren't criminals. And when Paul Hornung and Alex Carras were caught betting on games, they got suspended. By 1960's standards, a lot of the guys on that NFL arrests list would've been expelled from the league.

Interesting move for both the Patriots and Newton. If Newton can come back fully fit, he'll work out great, but given the fact it took so long for him to find a new team, there must be some doubts over that. Either way though, it's not much of a risk for the Patriots and if it works out, they're definitely a team capable of making a deep playoff run. Newton is a good QB, I always disliked him at the Panthers because he was infuriatingly good, but I hope he does well.

What's his height and weight and I'll check for you? :kiss
5-8 200 pounds of muscle.

Don't forget.....


Is BMI accurate if you are muscular?

There are a myriad of reasons why BMI isn't as accurate a measure of health as many of us were brought up to believe, but one of the main ones is that BMI can't distinguish between fat and muscle. A pound of fat takes up a much larger volume on the body than a pound of muscle, even though they of course weigh the same.Aug 18, 2017
