Looks like most of his superbowl wins were prior to even talking about Vegan - and it doesn't look like he is in anyway a committed vegan.

Quick google tells me all kinds of things - starting in 2014.... starting in 2017.... also some saying he is 80% vegan.... some saying he rotates it like being vegan for 9-months and then 3 months off....

Yeah that's not vegan lol.


And no - that isn't "a long time"
What happened to this story? Why would you film the Bungles? Guess they wanted a leg up on Joe Burrow, just in case he turns that franchise around.

Antonio Brown is at it again. This bag of dicks is now demanding the NFL wrap up it's investigation so he can play again. A whole two days after he announced his "retirement" on Instagram.

There's something seriously wrong with this guy. He needs to stay on his meds.

Go Hawks! Excited to get the best safety in the league! Plus our first found picks are usually busts...

Not sure the NFL season will survive training camp after MLB is having issues within the first three games with no fans in the stadium. When the fall season gets here and people are more inside, this will not be good for the NFL. I wonder what happens to the players if they cancel or start and cancel. Will they all get credit for the year? Do they get their full contract or just the guaranteed part? Will be interesting to see how this works out. At a minimum there will be no fans in the stadium.

I really, really want to have football this season. However, still am not sure how it can work with the extremely close contact football entails. That and the fact that we are already seeing positive cases in the sports that have opened up.

I have season tickets and got a letter last week that the preseason games are going to happen without fans. I expect that to continue up to and including the season until they have a major outbreak which has a high probability of happening. If the Marlins are any indication, none of the fall sports will get off the ground. Camps opened up last week, just waiting fortune announcements of cases spiking. Hope we get the season in as if it is a shorter season, just cancel it and save the guys bodies for one year.

Baseball is a non-contact sport where I believe the transmission risk is relatively low. Football is a whole 'nother beast entirely. Yesterday ESPN dot com reported details from the league to players on topics including the types of questions you're asking here.

I would be shocked if either CFB or NFL allowed fans in attendance for the upcoming season, although there is some chatter of CFB shifting to a spring season if the epidemic continues to churn on its current path.

This thread is going to be the NFL thread for the whole season, cause the entire season is going to be off.

5 Patriots players have opted out, one of which is Hightower. I have a feeling with the agreement in place, there may be a tidal wave of opt outs. And this may give us an insight into who has been smart with their paychecks and who has not.

Another year of “replacements” does not bode well. As training camps begin to get going, more and more will get infected. I am surprised there are not more at this point. There will be a flood once the infection rate increases, especially when the first player is hospitalized because of the virus.

In case nobody else has said in this thread yet.....I’m just done with common pro sports. NFL, NBA, MLB. They may inadvertently take my money but not voluntarily. I will not give them my viewership. These #*#%+##* are making way too much money and are turning sports into a religion. Done.

Do you just hate the players making all those lootcakes? What about the owners?
