His brain is too big to allow for proper motor function in the rest of his body.
I'm curious about this as when Tod left the organization, the NFLPA had been telling people, at least verbally and not formally, that Tod was going to be the successor to Goodell and quite soon, too.
It's still a Bucs life....
Poor guy. Stay far away from that coaching staff Coop.
The Bucs are so frustrating to watch Thank god we have the lightning to give us all some sports joy. Bucs are underperforming with so much raw young talent and someone needs to be fired.
Marc Topkin says the Rays are gonna have a firesale and sell off Longo,Archer, and others. I suppose that is one way to just completely torpedo what little fan support is left.
That'll help them get that stadium.
Might as well... What are we holding out for, a barely. 500 season? Start over, trade for great prospects and give us a team that's actually going to win in a few years
Except I think we both know we won't get fair value back for them and to trade away the face of the franchise while you are trying to get a new stadium doesn't seem very smart.
Anddddddddddd the Rays went and traded Longo to the Giants. They just burned whatever relationship and fanbase they had in TB straight to the ground.
UCF are the real national champs.
Patriots or Eagles, gentlemen?
Patriots for sure. Still not over Eagles fans taunting Jurevicius over his son.
Rays are moving to Tampa, expect an announcement later this week / into next week.
Tampa Bay Business Journal has an article this past Friday about this but its subscription based and I can't share it. There is this (SB Nation - DRaysBay.com)
Rays Stadium Search: News outlets report Rays have already chosen Ybor City
Stu's still gotta pony up more than that paltry 20% he's stating he's going to. Sure its a negotiation and you always start low-ball. That's ball-punch worthy though
My sources have told me it's already been signed and good to go, they were waiting on the All Star game to be over so they didn't steal / share the limelight.
It's so hard to get excited about the Rays after the last decade. I can only hope that since they're literally playing in Jeff Vinik's city that the two sides come to work together somehow. I'm not talking about buying the team, but maybe joining in as another chairman who will help ownership make the big choices but also maybe to help find a way to merge the Lightning foundation with the baseball team across the street and the Rays can start their own community hero legacy. The man will eventually go down as the single greatest philanthropist bay area has ever known and were he to join the Rays I have to imagine that Lightning fans would flock to the Rays in droves simply out of loyalty to the person who is building a dynasty we only ever could have dreamed of for the city and for our hockey team.
In 10 years we're not even going to recognize Tampa anymore
I don't know why it's necessary to delay the announcement further into next month. Businesses aren't suddenly going to be any more inclined to support the project if you stretch things out. This whole process has taken long enough and the more the Rays sit around on this idea the more it's gonna end up costing them in the end.
Just tell me what you need so I can vote already. Simple as that
It'll be about a mile from Water Street so I'm hoping that with all the upcoming construction, they also work in an extension for the trolley system to take people from downtown to the pending stadium and essentially make the stadium the unofficial end of Water Street.
The Gandy extension from the Selmon corrolates to the pending stadium to make a direct and fast route for people to travel to and from St. Pete among just traffic congestion between the lights on Gandy Blvd.
I don't know for any certainty but I believe Vinik is involved in some manner which would help the Rays rebuild support.
Arthur Blank was not happy that Robert Kraft put 283 diamonds in Patriots’ rings
This is too funny
Rays to announce Tampa’s Ybor as preferred site of new ballpark, says Ken Hagan
I'll believe it when I see it. Don't want to get my hopes up.
Yuck. Don't want that traffic mess, nor the years of construction, nor all of us footing the tax bill to make Sternberg richer.
Vegas Rays sounds good to me.
Maybe Vinik feels like taking on another project
Ok, I'll listen then. Lord knows they'll at least put out a tolerable product, all around
