  1. That is not the implication. The version I heard was that the waiver would waive employment related claims, which would not just be the lack of a job coming from this workout, but also the lack of employment for the last 3 years, the lack of future employment, and potential legal damages for lost earnings based on the underlying collusion claims that he settled previously. They specifically did not settle the employment claims, so this waiver, if it was as Kap's camp portrayed, would be an end run around his potential next lawsuit.
  2. And here are both sides of the story. The only issue I really have is if the NFL really tried to insert additional language into the waiver that may undermine any of Kap's additional legal rights for employment related claims against the NFL. The NFL said it was a standard waiver, Kap's people said it was not and included a bunch of additional clauses. Seems like a pretty easy point to prove one way or another as Kap's people had a copy of the waiver and submitted a revised version. Its a lot of legalese but there can be real impact on future litigation depending on the content of an employment agreement. I don't know much about Georgia's employment laws, but I suspect Georgia was selected for a reason. As for the filming, media, etc., I couldn't really care less. If it was all about transparency, then so be it, but people trying out for the NFL don't get to dictate terms, and it isn't like any other player gets to dictate terms and demand concessions like this. It seems to me that both parties are angling more for optics than a future employment relationship. If the NFL tried to get him to agree to an unreasonable waiver, it would be easy for Kap's camp to prove. If his camp doesn't counter the NFL's position, I have no faith that Kap really wanted anything more than a headline. If they do counter it and show the NFL tried to get one over, I think they just helped his next lawsuit, and I wish Kap luck.
  3. Seriously, the players TD assembled put a hurt on the Saints with a change in coaching. I swear some people are so entrenched in their positions that they will see anything as support for their arguments...
  4. That commentator was Pat McAfee. Great follow on Twitter, and a pretty good football personality. See below.
  5. Which may be the answer for us in the off-season:
  6. Did you seriously post a video of Takk trolling D-Led as some evidence that he is a cancer? When you find yourself on the same side as D-led, you should just stop.
  7. Sick red herring bro. You called Takk a locker room cancer with zero evidence other than your own perceptions. You don't get to act like someone has to like what they see on Sunday's from this squad if they disagree with your unrelated baseless assumptions.
  8. Well, with all of that convincing evidence you posted, how could one deny the power of your observations? I mean, his face says it all, he's a locker room cancer. In all seriousness, I do believe you when you say you tell it like you see it. Your problem is that your vision is apparently garbage.
  9. Kids, this is why you don’t eat paint chips...
  10. So this essentially seems like a 5 year, 85 million contract. If he is guaranteed an additional 45 million, I would assume some is guaranteed salary for the first year the extension goes into effect, but how does the remainder prorate over the other 5 years? it sounds like his 2019 salary didn’t get adjusted, and there was only like 5 mil in cap space, so I would think the non-salary guarantees could only be up to $20 million. Any cap gurus care to take a stab at it?
  11. I have always admired and appreciated both your fandom and what you brought to this board and the falcons fanhood at large. I am very sorry to hear of your loss. You will be in my thoughts.
  12. Not only that but if he signs for 6-7 mil next year, the Vikes would potentially get a 5th/6th round compensatory pick I believe. Trading him for the same would essentially be giving him away for free and I doubt they would do it for less than a 4th plus something.
  13. Do you seriously have this poor of a grasp on NFL contract structure and the cap?
  14. I’m honestly just thrilled I can come on this board after the draft and read so many professional scouts debate the pros and cons our picks...
  15. I think that assumes they think Oliver can't step in. He was a 1st round grade CB last year, so hopefully he steps in and we can continue to shore up the DL with the first pick.
  16. Discussing it 4 years later brings that thought to mind. I am not one of those post-diggers that cares enough to search through your history to verify.
  17. Dimi doesn't cite his mocks and say "see I called it sort-of." I'm sure you're a good dude and I'd get along well with a beer with ya, the hindsight stuff gets old though. Then again, you were baited in this thread, so consider my comment withdrawn.
  18. In which of your many mocks? You must be the strongest man in the world with all the goalpost moving that you do...
  19. I am very confident that both Matt Ryan's replacement and OP are still in high school...
  20. Look, I hate to defend the Stains, I really do, but tonight, Brees was the problem more than the Cowboys. They had 2 sacks and 1 garbage time interception. Their defense played as well as they played all season, but the common thread was the Saint's play-calling and execution, which was horrid. If you want to look at this game as some referendum on the Falcons personnel strategy, then I present the following Cowboys 1st team front 7: Lawrence - Certifiable stud, no explanation needed Crawford - 7th year pro, never more than 5 sacks a season Woods - 2nd year as a pro (didn't play 2018...) 1.5 sacks total Taco - 2nd year pro, 4 sacks total Wilson - 4th year pro, .75 sacks a year Smith - 2nd year pro (I'm not even going to count the 1st year because of the nerve issues) - 4 sacks this year Lee - It's not even fair to discuss QB pressures with him, though in 8 seasons he has 3 sacks. When healthy he roams the field and makes tackles, but when does that happen consistently? *Also, let's include Vender Esch, since he killed it tonight, but general stats are: rookie, 0 sacks, 77 tackles, 0 sacks I dare anyone to say that front 7 is better than the Falcons...
  21. Are you seriously trying to paint the Cowboy's defense as elite? Games like this happen, did you just start watching football?
  22. I mean, we still have the Terry stop for just this type of situation. The problem is a "group of youths" in a "high crime area" is not sufficient for reasonable suspicion in an of itself, and wherever this is tried leads to disproportionate impact on minorities. I just wish the criminal enhancements for using a firearm in a crime weren't a bargaining chip but instead a mandate. If we are going to go after those who illegally possess firearms, the first step is to ensure that those that you have already caught using them for criminal purposes are hammered to the fullest extent of the law. Extending accomplice liability for crimes involving firearms would be a nice addition.
  23. He's been bad for a couple seasons now. It is the weirdest thing.
  24. That 3 by curry was disgusting...
