    You don't see the obvious concerns with each one of the 3? Or do you believe that those aren't as big of reg flags as they've been portrayed (speaking relatively here, given the level of players being discussed)?

    I do not like Mayfield myself. Certainly not as #1 overall pick. He struggles once the pocket breaks down and doesn't read underneath coverage very well. I do not value leadership qualities as much as the next guy. I will even say I prefer keel guys over someone fiery. Ideally I'd want a robot as my franchise QB. Baker's intensity can be his downfall at times (we've seen that happen). Just my personal take of course.

    I'd have gone Darnold if I were in a dire need of a QB. He has trouble with ball security, but I'd rather gamble on that given his pure offensive ability that Mayfield (IMO) doesn't not possess.

    I'd go Allen next. I love that arm. It a clear cut above the rest of QBs of this draft class. Yes, I understand he has accuracy issues, but I think that can be something he could improve upon over time.

    I strongly disagree about Mayfield struggling when the play breaks down. It's quite the opposite. That's where he thrives. Amazing numbers on the run. I see him as a better Keenum.

    Besides, I like Mayfield for his passing abilities. Couldn't care less about the leadership stuff.

    I wouldn't touch Allen in the first. Poor accuracy and poor decision making. I'd have taken Jackson well before.

    I think the main draft experts like Mayock and Kiper are vastly undervaluing the qbs this year. Especially Rosen and Mayfield.

    Rosen apparently rubbed too many of his teammaes the wrong way with his elitist rich white privilege attitude. He won't make the NFL.

    Quote this post 4 years from now.

    Stunned the Browns passed on Williams. Most potential of any linemen IMO. Baffled the kid is still on the board.

    They might take him with their next pick.
    Edit: Nope, they went with a running back.

    Not to divert NFL talk, but i kinda get a bit of sick pleasure watching the Schitt Show, I mean Stro Show.

    Marcus Stroman is so arrogant, a loud mouth and watching him get lit up is enjoyable even as a Jays fan

    He's certainly a polarizing figure. I don't really mind his swagger , the only thing that bugs me is him venting on twitter when he's frustrated. I'd rather he kept that inside the locker room.

    That's how it all started for the Expos franchise way back when, it's kinda fitting . Great news if true.

    The beauty of a future NBA franchise is that the location is already built.

    It's a bit tricky in that there's not a lot of natural cross-pollination between hockey and basketball fandoms but hopefully the base will be there.

    I'm thrilled with the Jets draft. Is it football season yet?

    For next year's NFL draft, you guys should keep an eye on Ed Oliver, from Houston. If you can catch some of their games, you absolutely should. Highly recruited out of high school and he has lived up to expectations. Very strong and explosive kid. Still a ton of room to grow.

    :clap::clap::clap:

    A loud round of applause goes to Françoise Abanda for making herself sound like a complete and utter idiot with her most recent comments.

    We all get it - you have something to prove and we all hope you do get there. But how about trying to become relevant first before making a fool out of yourself?

    This was ridiculous on her part.

    To be fair to Bouchard, she gave us two good years, a slam final, got to #5 in the world. Sure she's a mess now. She got a lot of attention because she was almost the Wimbledon champion.

    Another thing people don't want to talk about ..but is totally true...Bouchard got more attention not because she's white, but because she's attractive. It's "attractive people privilege" . It happens in life everyday. It's the reason Idris Elba would be James Bond or get a Tag Heuer ad campaign before an uglier white guy. No one wants to say it, but it's true.

    Abanda has potential . If she makes a slam round of 32, I'll be the first to watch it, I swear, just like I watched Pospisil, Wozniak, and all the other Canadians in grand slams, promise.

    Further confirmation of why I can't watch soccer. Got stuck with soccer games on sports radio today, so this incident was widely publicized:



    Ibrahimovic slaps a midget Saputo player across the face but then pretends to be hurt and falls down at the same time as the midget. Beautiful.

    Can't say enough about this guy. Congrats Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, first active NFL player to hold a medical degree.



    And perfected his English. And grew up in a family business of bread and pastry makers. Doesn't this guy invite the whole team to his house last year and bake every single thing he served.

    I mean, who does this?!!!!

    Laurent, you're out of this world. Thanks for making us all proud. :handclap:

    You mean NFL right? It would be even more impressive if an NFL player became the first NHL player to become a doctor :laugh:
