If you have issue with the order, well you have a lot of company. That’s what the comments section is for! Just keep it above board and professional in your criticism.

Team needs were somewhat taken into account for the 2018 NFL mock draft, at least as much as we could at this point. It’s still very early for a mock draft right now. For the link to our NBA mock draft go here.

Pete Carroll, Charles Barkley, Mark Cuban Respond to Trump UGLINESS

pete carroll

Friday night Donald Trump held a campaign rally for an election that he already won 10 months ago. At the rally he called Colin Kaepernick, and other NFL players who don’t stand for the national anthem, “sons of bitches.”

Therefore he also called mothers of NFL players “bitches” in the process. Naturally and deservedly, he’s getting a ton of blowback for such hateful and divisive commentary. Chicago Bears Team Captain Akiem Hicks called Trump out on Saturday.

Patriots Owner Bob Kraft Getting Involved in 2026 World Cup Bid

bob kraft

A majority of American sports fans may not love Robert Kraft, but they may have to root for him now anyway. At least, if they want the U.S. (along with Mexico and Canada) to land the World Cup in 2026New England Patriots Owner Bob Kraft may have deplorably awful politics, or at least terrible taste in politicians, but the man certainly dominates the sports executive game.

Since Robert Kraft purchased the New England Patriots in 1994, the club has won more games, playoff games (28), division titles (16), conference titles (8) and Super Bowl championships (5) than any other team in the NFL.

Aaron Hernandez Dead from Apparent Suicide; Twitter Users Make Really Bad Jokes

aaron-hernandez-patriots

Aaron Hernandez was an awful human being; there’s really no disputing that.

Anyone who deliberately takes another person’s life is truly beyond the pale of description. Repugnant, deplorable, immoral, monstrous, disgusting….choose your words but at the end of the day these are still just words and they can never truly articulate the atrocity that is intentionally taking another human being’s life from them.
