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.

2020 NFL Mock Draft 9-18-19

nfl draft

We have 2020 vision, NFL Draft style, right here, right now. It’s our fourth 2020 NFL mock draft update, and the order was based on a combination of NFL.com’s power rankings plus how we see the teams finishing the season out. Team needs were sometimes, but not often taken into account, as it’s just way too early to factor in. Obviously this will be modified many times between now and 2020 NFL Draft day.

So I implore you to really not take this very seriously, and just have fun with it. Please refrain from pointless hostility and needless acrimony in the comments section. Don’t be that guy. You have too much to do in your life than to waste it on trivial online conflict like that. Enjoy!

Former NFL tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. will certainly no longer be remembered by football fans for what he did on the football field during his nine year professional career.

Instead the former member of the Cleveland Browns and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (who also had brief stops with the Jets, Seahawks and Patriots) is more likely to be remembered as a “compulsive masturbator and pornography enthusiast.”

Martellus Bennett on How the NFL Discourages Individuality, Free-Thought (Exclusive)

During his NFL career, Martellus Bennett scored more than 30 touchdowns, accrued more than 4,500 receiving yards, won a Super Bowl with the 2016 New England Patriots and earned a Pro Bowl berth with the 2014 Chicago Bears.

Not bad for artist and writer. Bennett was in town last week to do a public reading of his new children’s book “Dear Black Boy,” at Open Books, a literacy non-profit in the west loop. A major point he emphatically made, over and over again, is that creating art and literature is more fun than sports.

On the hand, the explosion of legalized sports gambling in the United States and expanded Super Bowl prop betting will make this game “interesting” for those who are sick of the Pats.

And if you are one of those sports fans who has grown weary of Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and company, well a Morning Consult poll shows that you are not alone.

If you’re a New England Patriots fan, then you are currently living in a golden age that doesn’t show any sign of ceasing any time soon. However, if you follow any of the other 31 NFL teams, you’ve almost certainly grown fatigued of the Patriots by this point.
