  • How independent are the “neutral, independent” arbitrators who handle CBA grievances? August 24, 2019
    When it comes to the resolution of disputes like the Antonio Brown helmet kerfuffle, the NFL lately has been careful to push to the media the terms “neutral” and “independent” when describing the arbitrator who makes the decision. So how neutral and independent are the arbitrators who resolve so-called “non-injury” grievances? Review of the relevant […]

  • Premier of Manitoba expresses “disappointment” at Packers-Raiders game August 23, 2019
    The NFL’s effort to take its game internationally has worked in London, but other sites have proved a bigger challenge. The Seahawks and Patriots cancelled a preseason game in Beijing in 2007, and the Rams-Chiefs regular-season game was moved from Mexico City back to L.A. last November because of poor playing conditions. On Thursday night, […]

  • Looking at the games with the strangest field conditions August 23, 2019
    Thursday night’s Canadian conversion rate playing surface in Winnipeg on Thursday night ranks among the strangest over field conditions ever seen in a preseason game. But there have been far stranger field conditions in games that count. On Friday, Chris Simms and I drafted the strangest field conditions in NFL history. After determining the coin […]

  • Aaron Rodgers admits he didn’t play because of field August 23, 2019
    No, Aaron, this is not clickbait. But, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was willing to say what his head coach was not last night after their Canadian adventure, the latest in a string of embarrassments for the NFL when they work in non-NFL buildings at home and abroad. With the team playing on an 80-yard Winnipeg […]

  • Jon Gruden: Winnipeg field was fine, ask Green Bay what the problem was August 23, 2019
    Raiders coach Jon Gruden did not agree with the decision to play Thursday night’s game against the Packers on a makeshift 80-yard field after the NFL’s attempt to convert a larger Canadian Football League field into a regulation American field hit a snag. Although the Packers insisted that the game couldn’t use the planned end […]

However, Gary says there’s no need for alarm. “I’m well, thank you for your prayers and concern!” he said on a posting to his instagram account. Gary left the game against the Oakland Raiders late in […]

  • Packers sit 33 players after field conditions become an issue August 23, 2019
    The Packers announced they will sit 33 players tonight, including Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams. The team didn’t say why, but the reason is obvious. The Packers were expected to play their starters, but that was before the field conditions in Winnipeg became an issue. A patch of temporary turf in the south end zone […]

    The Packers were expected to play their starters in tonight’s preseason game in Winnipeg. They now are reconsidering because of a patch of turf in the south end zone. “We are still in the process of determining what to do,” Packers CEO/President Mark Murphy told Josh Moser of Fox 11. The Raiders already were planning […]

  • Raiders punter gets his Canadian provinces mixed up August 22, 2019
    The Raiders play a preseason game against the Packers tonight in Winnipeg, Manitoba. That was news to Raiders punter A.J. Cole. Cole wore during the road trip from Oakland to Canada a hoodie that says, “Winnipeg, Alberta.” He poked fun at himself for the wardrobe malfunction. “Apologies to the citizens of Winnipeg, Manitoba,” Cole tweeted, […]

  • This week’s Hard Knocks performs well in Pittsburgh August 22, 2019
    Schadenfreude sells. HBO has announced the viewership for the third episode of this year’s Hard Knocks, and one line from the press release resonates most loudly: The ratings for Tuesday night’s show in Pittsburgh outpaced the national average by more than three times. This means that Steelers fans enjoy watching the train wreck that former […]

  • Cardinals react to Lamarcus Joyner’s “pretty boy football” label August 21, 2019
    Kyler Murray complained to Antonio Brown after last week’s game, asking the Raiders receiver why Oakland’s defense “gotta bring the house on me?” The Cardinals either were annoyed or amused by defensive back Lamarcus Joyner‘s postgame comments. It was hard to tell. Joyner appeared on ESPN and called Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury’s spread-oriented scheme “pretty-boy […]

  • Le’Veon Bell on Antonio Brown’s helmet issue: It’s a rule August 21, 2019
    They once were teammates. Now, they’re on different teams. Le'Veon Bell sat out last season in a contract dispute with the Steelers and walked in free agency. Pittsburgh traded Antonio Brown after the receiver became a major distraction. The two haven’t spoken recently, according to Bell, but Bell has watched Brown’s issues in Oakland from […]

    Antonio Brown is apparently willing to risk frostbite again. According to Scott Bair of, the enigmatic Raiders wide receiver is, in fact headed to the Raiders’ preseason game in Canada.

  • Kyler Murray asked Antonio Brown, “Why they gotta bring the house on me, bro?” August 21, 2019
    Cardinals rookie quarterback Kyler Murray didn’t look like a generational talent in his second preseason game. And it looks like the Raiders specifically wanted to keep that from happening. Last night’s Hard Knocks includes clips from a Raiders team meeting in advance of the preseason game at Arizona. And coach Jon Gruden was more intent […]

  • Hard Knocks finally shares some truth, intended or not August 21, 2019
    NFL Films and HBO, undoubtedly at the behest of the Raiders, continue to tiptoe around the issues that have kept receiver Antonio Brown off the field throughout training camp. But one specific moment from last night’s episode shared a fundamental, and perhaps unintentional, truth wth the viewer. In full uniform for pregame workouts prior to […]

  • Officials’ mistake led to Chargers’ Mike Windt getting Hard Knocks ridicule August 21, 2019
    Chargers long snapper Mike Windt made a bonehead play in the first week of the preseason, which made him the subject of a Raiders film session, which meant he was the subject of ridicule on this week’s episode of Hard Knocks. But Windt was only put in the position to make his mistake because of […]

Coach Bill O’Brien liked what he saw. “It’s great to have him out here,” O’Brien said, via the Houston Chronicle. “He’s a good addition to the team, good in the passing […]

  • Hard Knocks: Jon Gruden told Antonio Brown he handled everything “seamlessly” August 21, 2019
    Hard Knocks addressed Antonio Brown‘s feet last week. It ended the second episode with a “to be continued” tease to Brown’s helmet issue. Hard Knocks wasted little time in getting to Brown on Tuesday, setting up the helmet issue only three minutes into the hour-long reality series before cutting to coach Jon Gruden talking privately […]

  • Antonio Brown grievance hearing likely to happen Friday August 20, 2019
    Antonio Brown practiced with a certified helmet on Tuesday, but his second grievance against the league is moving forward. Brown wants to be able to wear a Schutt AiR Advantage helmet made in the last 10 years and certified by the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment, but the league said that a […]
