Tommy Tremble: Notre Dame TE the Latest “Baby Gronk”

“Back in high school, I loved playing defense. They wouldn’t let me play defense and made me play offense. But, honestly, I just love contact. It’s pure passion for me. Every time I’m out on the field, I want to be dominant, and I try my best to.”

Why the NFL Must be Extremely Pragmatic Ahead of 2020 Season

The coronavirus pandemic has destroyed all essence of a potentially normal year. That statement could not be more true for the sporting world, which took a major hit with the announcements that all leagues would be suspended back in early-to-mid March of 2020.

2021 NFL Mock Draft Version 6-17-20

We don’t have any actual real team sports, anywhere, any time soon, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While playing games again, especially with fans present, is almost certainly many months away, the respective drafts can still go ahead as planned, albeit in a very modified version.

For the MLB mock draft go here, the NBA is linked here and the NHL can be found at this link.

2020 NFL Mock Draft 4-23-20 FINAL EDITION

The NFL Draft, for the first time ever, will be conducted without any centralized physical location. League Commissioner Roger Goodell will announce picks from his home, and teams will make their selections from their headquarters. Basically, it will be the first online only NFL Draft, as everything will be conducted virtually.

Obviously, the seriousness of the COVID-19 pandemic calls for such measures, but it’s not a totally unprecedented format. After all, day three of the NFL Draft, for the past few years, has had no actual location. Anyone who watches it closely notices all the picks being announced remotely. Now they’re simply doing that for the whole thing.

Yesterday was yet another day in these surreal and insane times in which we live, and any time we see a top trending term on Twitter that’s not related to the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s a blessing. That is perhaps the most re-assuring thing about seeing Tom Brady as the top trend on the micro-blogging platform on Tuesday, because hey, it wasn’t coronavirus.

NFL Draft: a Sporting Event Built to Survive Lockdown

nfl draft

The NFL Draft, in a highly altered and very much scaled down form, might be the only sporting event that survives the next couple months. If they can pull it off, and it is very much doable, you could see the MLB, NBA and NHL follow suit. It won’t be actual sports, but hey, it will be something close. And it will give you some sports to bet on too, as NFL betting sites have already been taking action on who the first overall pick would be for quite some time already.

On Monday morning, the National Football League announced that the draft will go on, on the planned date, but all fan events are cancelled. So for now, it’s on, but who knows what could change between now and the end of April. Personally, I think it would be really cool if they went all retro/back to their roots- just a bunch of old dudes in a conference center ball room picking names off of a board.

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium Looking to Relocate NFL Team in London

This past weekend saw Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London host the English Premier League and the American National Football League on the same weekend. The $1.25 billion stadium, which opened last spring, after several delays, was worth the wait. It’s world-class, and their next goal is to host the Premiership and the NFL on the same day.
