  1. I can't stand Mayfield, but it would be awesome to see him go to Seattle and have success and Watson misses a ton of time being suspended and is never the same QB he was a few years ago... bye $239 million.. Oh, have I ever mentioned Fuck cleveland?

  2. My son and I flew in for the meet and greet today, it was at the Westin downtown. Had him sign a painting, superbowl ticket stub, rookie card, and an orange limited nike jersey. I ll post pics of the items tomorrow or in a few days, i shipped the painting back to my house today already. Here are some pics from the event.

  5. there are many ways these events CAN happen. This one is a private meet and greet. It was $5,000. That $5000 gets you the meet and greet, pro photos, photos with your phone, and 4 items signed. Before the event you get a questionnaire about the items and inscription requests, etc. You are given the time and location of the event (Westin Hotel in Cincy). Show up, they have you put your items in a room on a table, for this day of this event (there were two days it was offered) there were 6-7 pairs of people, you could do up to 2 people. so then they put joe in the room and bring each pair in solo so its just you and joe (and a photographer and the coordinator and the handler for Joe.) Its a pretty funny thing to watch from the outside i assume, a bunch of fans chatting about football, given an order theyll go in, everytime the door opens everyone looks over like an expecting father wondering if their newborn is next, and they get nodded in and prance over like school kids and go in. lol Joe also had an entire Ballroom full of merchandise to sign, so we saw him there way before the event in the room signing away. PILES of merchandise. and this was day two of it all, so id guess he has signed 2500 items this week for Fanantics/SportsMemorabilia(same company). He is a Fanatics exclusive athlete, so id guess he is paid 3-5million a year, and has to give up X amount of gameballs, cleats, jerseys, and sign X amount of events, including probably 1-2 of these per year. I know for a fact this is at least his second signing for them this year. so i assume 4x a year he has to sign piles of shit. if someone wants to have joe come sign, i found that price is $100k. to fanatics. and they limit how many autographs can be sold for the event. This was a fanatics event. I was called by my fanatics rep, who i buy many of the game used jerseys from, about it. Originally they sold it with game used footballs and it was $15k, $20k, or $25k with game used football included. I passed. I bought a game used rookie year football for $7000 last year, so I had one. So we have about 5 minutes with him. walked in, shoot hands, as he always does he said "hi, im joe" which has to be amusing for him at this point, like yea man, i paid $5,000 to be here i know who you are. asked where we were from, small talk, we talked about traveling to games last year and how it was fun for my son and I, etc.. then one of the handlers, moves the attention to the items he has to sign, and walks through each one proper pen, placement, inscription, etc. then the other handlers moves you to pics, "oohh lets get some photos guys" lol, they are all very good at what they do there. so the pics i posted are from my phone, a real photographer was there, so we will get printed 8x10 of a few pics and all of the digital originals he took as well. this event is way way overpriced, but joe is at his peak popularity. I was offered a slightly cooler event for tom brady in march, it was $25,000, got you meet him, catch a pass from him on the field, THROW a pass to Gronk, get pics from both, each would sign the ball you caught and then the one you threw, have pics of catching it/throwing it. and then an after party with huge sponsor who gave you gifts. I declined. but that would be cool. other types of events are: Private signing: ship in items, pay a fee, theyll have it signed as requested, and shit it back with authentication and sometimes a photo of him signing it. this is most common for someone as big as Burrow. Public signing, essentially what i mentioned above, someone pays the fee, sells autograph tickets hoping to make a profit or break even and get hella shit signed. Fanatics would send a person to autograph count, to ensure the player isnt "overworked". This event i did wanst made public, it was just offered to the clients on the game used/spends money/bengals fan list from fanatics. I dont know how many people did it day 1. so it was the same crowd size, they got 16 people to pay $5,000, it could have been way bigger, but id guess theyd cap it at 25 pairs a day, or something similar. Joe aint trying to shake hands like the president all day. I thought about going or not, but living in colorado my odds of meeting joe, shaking his hand, and having this type of moment was unlikely, so i figured fuck it, my kid and I will remember this forever. Burrow is a real life superhero, he commands a room just walking through it, he walked across the hall before the event, every conversation stopped, 16 heads turned and stared, that has to be strange for him. He is the most athletic dude i have ever seen. thanks! my friend said "you cant tell how tall Joe is because everyone in this pic is so tall" im 6'2", my kid is 5'11" joe is 6'4". thanks! it turned out awesome, cant wait to open it up and check it out, i ddnt much see it after he signed it, i boxed it back up and took it straight to shipping store after. I fly back home today, eager to get everything framed. graded, protected, etc.

  6. This is a meaningless number, It's like saying he was ranked the 3rd coolest guy named Joe by people wearing sandals. Stats that actually mean something: 3rd in rushing yards 4th in TD's 5th in first downs 6th in yards per game All of which was done behind arguably the worst OL in the NFL. That's impressive.

  7. There is something called a collective bargaining agreement. Goodell and the NFL can't violate it. I realize management is often the bad guy, and the NFL is no execption, but this is one of those spots where a union is every bit the POS that management is. The NFLPA can kiss my ass defending this creep.

  8. Yeah I'm not sure why the NFLPA is "concerned" by this.. Do they think he should receive cake & pie & ice cream instead or what? What's concerning about it other than 2 dozen accusations of sexual assault?

  13. Let's be real.. If you're passing up exclusive NFL-level massage therapists in favor of randos off Instagram you're definitely, 100% not actually going to them for a massage. "Here sign this NDA first" There is no room for doubt as to his intentions here. None.

  14. Anything less than 2 years for this sick fucker would be disgraceful. I’d prefer a permanent ban, but I know how the NFL doesn’t give a fuck about women, so I’m expecting a 1 year suspension.

  15. Ok, so the way I understand this is Judge Robinson makes a suggestion to the NFL for what she believes the punishment should be. From there it is further negotiated between the players association and the league (this should not be confused with the negotiations that just broke down). However, in this case rumor has it that the NFL will present what they believe the appropriate punishment should be before it is passed along to the Judge. I don't believe this is part of the normal process. This whole thing is stupid, Deshawn should be kicked the fuck out of the NFL! Just like the Rapist should have been.

I am Working until 4, blazing home, changing into my Bengals gear, grabbing my drugs and my son (in that order, lol) and hauling ass out to Indy. I have pit tickets this time! Edit: Here's us at the Cincinnati Billyshow March 12th (?) Saturday night at the Icon Center. Great venue, by the way. Billy even commented on how great it sounded. Steve

  21. Welp, enjoy Jessie Bates while you can. I agree that its not worth paying a safety that kind of money, no matter how good he is. But, if that's the market I'm sure Bates will get it. He's good. No hard feelings. Wish him the best.

  25. No danger if the QB is good enough. Chiefs are not worrying about it. We shouldn't either. the alternative is qb purgatory. Fuck no. GTFO w/ that nonsense.

  26. “I may disagree with the reasoning here, im not sure once you make it to the nfl and get to work it much matters where you came from, unless of course it effects your attitude and work ethic, which may be behind your reasoning.” I wasn’t saying Volson will make it because he is from a small school, I was saying he will have a leg up at making it because he is joining a line where two other guys have made It from a small school and will be uniquely positioned to help him with the transition. i think volson’s size and movement are more than adequate and the barrier I would normally see for him is the transitionn from small school to NFL. The two things in his favor are NDSU is not a typical small school and plenty of players before him have made the leap from there and the line he is joining should be one that helps to further ease that leap. I already trust his work ethic more than I ever will Carman.

  27. I stopped partoking years ago. Wife and I got into shooting, got our carry licenses and were buying a few guns for a while. Don't want a felony for lying on the 4473, so I gave up weed. I've seen some of Billy Strings. pretty amazing. I watch most of Rick Beato's videos and he's talked about him. My health issues seem to compound all the time, but so far I'm still working every day. On lots of meds though. Glaucoma, blood pressure, cholesterol, early stage prostate cancer. Diabetes, Venous stasis dermatitis.... Good times. Most of my issues are self inflicted though, too fat, smoke, drink, little exercise. I basically do the opposite of what I should do for the most part. Yeah, I'm an idiot with no willpower. Anyway, great to see you checking in. I had a long absence too, trying to stop in a little more these days. I mean, fuck, we're actually a good team again. We need to enjoy it.

  31. I would go a lot back then too. I have a lot of fun interaction stories with players and coaches--they were so accessible back then--but my favorite will always be my 5-minute one-on-one with the Old Man himself. They used to use certain pathways from the college dorms/cafeteria buildings to the practice fields. These would get jammed with people waiting for the players to walk back, so was always a push to see people. This happenstance occurred during TC of 1989--the year after SB 23. I had been wandering about after one morning practice and the crowds had cleared out. I was walking along one of those paths towards the cafeteria building, when I noticed an older fellow in a straw hat walking along the same path. Came up alongside, and sure enough, it was PB. He was very pleasant, and made comment about the nice weather, and "I see you are a fan?". I had a program, and outside of stumbling comments like "sir, you are a legend", asked if he would kindly sign it. At that moment, Elbert Woods was coming back down the path in the opposite direction. PB kiddingly asked me "why would you want mine...that guy's (Woods) is worth 10 times more?", All three of us had a laugh, and we all moved on. Still have that program.

  37. I would have done that if hubby wasn't a Browns fan. Funny story-When we went to our priest for pre-Cana counseling, it was 1989 and our priest had season tickets and had gone to the Super Bowl. Hubby wore his Browns jacket and our priest said and I quote, "I have no use for the Cleveland Browns or their fans." Hubby never did like him after that.
