Move this clown college organization to San I can become a Niners fan already

Asked 10 year old if he’d be excited if the Raiders moved to our town, San. He said, Why would we want a team with Schaub as quarterback? They already ran him out of Texas once.The last game I went to was against Tampa Bay 2012, when made our defense look like a JV squad trying to tackle a running back covered grease. I was with some friends who came from LA and central California, and it was their first Brandon Mebane Jersey time to a game person, they were pretty excited. We had great seats – the best I’ve ever had at a football game – about 10 rows from the field at somewhere like the 35 yard line. After broke 67 yards for his second TD late the third quarter to go up 28, I decided to beat the crowd and hop on the train back to San. friends looked at me with sad faces, and I told them they should stay, this being their first game and all, but that I had seen this movie too times to stick around. As I’m on the train, buddies start texting me how I left too early and that the Raiders were coming back after led drives for 3 TDs the fourth. I told them to wait and how they’d it up, and sure enough ran for his fourth TD and threw interception to seal the deal. The Casey Hayward Jersey vindication I felt for leaving early was probably the most I felt relation to the Raiders that entire.We are the absolute worst at drafting. We are somehow even worse at free agency. Our fans are the fucking worst. All they do is bitch about being underrated all this offseason. Some of them even have playoff aspirations. Are you me? Have you seen this team? We’d be lucky to scrape five wins together this year, and that was before we got handed the league’s toughest schedule. Fuck that. Fuck this team, the fans, management, and double our clown serial killer owner.

Move this clown college organization to San I can become a Niners fan already. Sam: Oakland sports are having existential crisis brought on by the state of the Coliseum. Currently, being a fan involves having passing familiarity with city planning, local politics, and environmental law. Superfans like Dr Death address the city council costume. The stadium shitshow is making us familiar with urban planning legal issues like ENAs, EIRs and CEQA. When the Raiders came back to Oakland the city obliged their demands. The current sewage problems? That’s because the Raiders renovations required the field to be lowered several feet below what the plumbing was originally designed for. For this, the city of Oakland floated a bond for a quarter of a billion dollars, with none of the Raiders’ revenue streams turn going to the city. Two decades later the city still owes $191 million, and the teams consider the stadium and arena unsalvageable. The Raiders and the A’s are both threatening to leave and all parties are trying any semblance of the leverage they can invent against the other two. Oakland, the Raiders and the A’s are all bluffing, and all of their bluffs have been called, they go back to bluffing-it’s like a Mamet script. The Raiders were bluffing that they had a stadium project ready to go as soon as the A’s get out of their way, and when that bluff was called they started bluffing that they’ll move to San, where their stadium problems would play out with the Alamodome which may be the only operating stadium the country more effed than the Coliseum. The A’s were bluffing that they’d get permission to move but when that bluff got called they started bluffing that they’re willing to stay Oakland if given a -ton of concessions, but the A’s new 10-year commitment to Oakland is basically a 3-year lease followed by a series of 1-year extensions after that, and they’ve basically already packed their bags and are just waiting for MLB to give up and let them leave. And the mayor and city council, whose ONE goal this shitshow is to not lose all three sports teams one election cycle, oscillate between playing hardball-which they understand to be nuking all negotiations over details they themselves ‘t understand, for the sake of appearing tough-and getting their bluff called embarrassingly unambiguous fashion, bent over the barrel like they have been for decades, piling on ever more crushing debt on Oakland’s impoverished tax base. Here’s a nice embarrassing example of Oakland’s unique mix of incompetence, delusion, and perfidy: the mayor gave interview saying that the literal Crown of Dubai was pocket and would be infusing the funds needed for a giant two-stadium plus arena plus commercial district Coliseum City complex that would solve everyone’s problems simultaneously.

ST. LOUIS — Kolten Wong have experienced a little déjà vu while rounding the bases the bottom of the 14th against the Pirates on Sunday. Wong’s second home run of the, a 421-foot blast deep into the right-field bleachers over the bullpen, gave the Cardinals their third consecutive walk-off win against the Pirates — the latest by a. It was Wong’s second career walk-off the regular, and Antti Raanta Jersey both have come against the Bucs. I was sitting there waiting for something I knew I could drive, Wong said. I wasn’t trying to bloop something, I was trying to drive something and either score myself or get scoring position. The capped a 3-for-4 day for Wong, who came off the bench for Matt Carpenter after he left the game with dizziness. Driving the ball, almost got it the gap the previous at-bat, he’s exciting, impressive kid, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. We just want to keep working with him to the point where he’s getting that consistency.

But he can do some pretty impressive things. Wong’s Brian Leetch Jersey blast ended another back-and-forth contest between two of the Central Division’s frontrunners. Carpenter’s home run the fourth gave the Cardinals a 1 lead and ended a streak of 95 consecutive innings without a home run given up by Pirates pitchers. That at-bat have been overlooked, because it didn’t get past third base, but he got into a tough spot, and he gets a 3 slider, which is one he swung through a couple of times, and Harrison makes a great play to save that game from being over, Matheny said. Just incredible at-bat from Bourjos right there. It is the first time the Cardinals had three extra-inning walk-off wins a row since winning four consecutive July 7, 1987. It also prolongs a walk-off trend against the Pirates. Since the start of the 2013, the Cardinals have had 15 walk-off wins, with eight of those coming at the expense of the Bucs. Any time you can get a walk-off home run, it’s special, but to do it the fashion that we did three a row, it’s something big for us, especially against a team like the Pirates, Wong said.

Colin Kaepernick biding time to grasp ‘next opportunity’ as starter

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been a backup before and now that he’s No. 2 on the depth chart again, he’s biding his time for the next chance to play.

After that game in San Diego, Kaepernick pledged to donate the first $1 million he makes this season toward helping organizations he believes can make a difference. He said Wednesday that he’ll also donate the proceeds from the sales of his jersey to those same causes.

As Panthers tight end Greg Olsen said, “This is not the Super Bowl.” The Panthers aren’t approaching this as a game for revenge or redemption for their 24-10 loss in Super Bowl 50. They have moved on.

Much of the credit for that goes to coach Ron Rivera, who spent the offseason preparing his team to avoid a “Super Bowl hangover.” In case you’ve missed it, since the 1992-93 Buffalo Bills, no team that lost the title game has returned the following year. Rivera has talked to everyone from John Madden to a retired admiral for advice. The message has been received loud and clear by his players.

The focus, as cliché as it sounds, is to win the next game. This is the next game, and minus Pro Bowl cornerback Josh Norman, Carolina has back most of the team that went 15-1 in the 2015 regular season.

Kelvin Benjamin. As good as the Panthers were offensively last season, they didn’t have their No. 1 receiver. Benjamin, a 6-foot-5, 245-pound target, will help bail Cam Newton out of trouble when he needs to complete tough passes over the middle to keep the chains moving. As Denver linebacker Von Miller said, Benjamin is Newton’s “safety blanket.” Benjamin’s presence will make it tougher for the Broncos to take Olsen out of the game, as they did in the Super Bowl. He’ll also create opportunities for second-year wide receiver Devin Funchess, who is light years ahead of where he was a season ago.

Norman has been a focal point ever since he signed with Washington in the spring, following Carolina’s decision to rescind the franchise tag it had placed on him. Part of it stems from his contract, worth $15 million a year, the highest for a corner. He has been in headlines for his matchup with Odell Beckham Jr., based on what happened last year and because they play twice this season.

“I’m ready to leave that all behind me,” he said. “I really don’t want to talk about it much. I tried to block it out and try to focus on football — what’s important. I know I didn’t do anything wrong.

“We were very confident since Day 1. I wasn’t really worried that much. I was really focused on ball and let my lawyers and representatives handle the rest.”

Union: Santa Clara police might boycott 49ers games over Colin Kaepernick’s stance

The Santa Clara police union has sent a letter to the San Francisco 49ers, warning that police might stop working the team’s home games due to Colin Kaepernick’s statements on police brutality and his wearing of socks during a practice that showed cartoon pigs dressed as police officers.

Sanchez is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent at season’s end under his current contract, which would be nullified if he were released and make him a free agent immediately. There is also the business side, beyond Sanchez’ salary, that the Broncos would not have to surrender a draft pick to the Philadelphia Eagles if Sanchez is not on the roster after Saturday.

Earlier this week Sanchez said he was determined to handle things in a “professional way,’’ and he promised to help Siemian and Lynch as much as possible.

“Few things are more important to me than my name and reputation. This might call that into question for some, which has me heartbroken,” Ninkovich said. “I don’t want to cut any corners. I want to do things the right way, with high integrity, and that’s what I have always wanted to stand for.”

Ninkovich, 32, has played in 116 consecutive games (including playoffs) for the Patriots since signing with the team as a free agent on Aug. 2, 2009.

“Any supplement I’ve ever used was bought at a store. I was unaware something I bought had a substance in it that would give me a positive test because it wasn’t listed [as an ingredient],” Ninkovich told ESPN.

“One thing I have learned is that if a supplement is not NSF certified, there are no regulations that ensure that what is on the label is 100 percent accurate. That is a hard lesson for me to learn at this stage in my career, but I take responsibility for it. It’s a mistake I made and it hurts that I won’t be there for my teammates.”

A team captain in 2015, Ninkovich tore his triceps during a training camp practice with the New Orleans Saints on Aug. 9 and was in jeopardy of missing the start of the season because of the injury.

He is valued for his pass-rush ability (47 career sacks, including playoffs) and toughness to set the edge against the run. Coach Bill Belichick has annually lauded Ninkovich’s toughness, versatility and intelligence.

Bengals tell Andy Dalton to cut down on the tackles in 2016

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton joked Thursday that he probably wouldn’t be making many tackles this year.

If it’s up to the team, he won’t be making any at all. Dalton broke his thumb last season trying to make a tackle after throwing an interception in the first quarter of a game against the Steelers on Dec. 18. The Bengals went 2-2 without him, but weren’t able to make it out of the first round of the playoffs.

“Oh yeah. We’ve made that clear here,” Bengals cornerback Adam Jones said on Pro Football Talk Live Thursday morning. “Whatever happens, he needs to run his ass back to the sidelines.”

In the ESPN story, Norman said of Thomas: “I don’t know what he was out there for. He was supposed to be an all-world guy and I shut him down.”

Bell will inevitably have the shortest leash. Get him a few carries, then see you in Week 4. Bell can’t return to practices until Sept. 26 after serving a three-game suspension for missed drug tests.

The 22-year-old superstar is gearing up for another teaser on Saturday, when the Rams travel to Denver to play the reigning-champion Broncos at 6 p.m. PT. Gurley is expected to play. But while the rest of the starters go deep into the second quarter in the third preseason game, Rams coach Jeff Fisher will probably restrict Gurley to only one drive, just like he did last week.

“It’s whatever,” Gurley said. “Whatever Coach Jeff gives me, I’ll be happy with it. Obviously I want to be out there with my boys, running the ball, protecting, whatever it is. Just a couple more weeks until the real games.”

And with Gurley, that’s all the Rams are even thinking about. During Tuesday’s airing of “Hard Knocks,” Fisher was seen telling his defensive coaches that Gurley should be treated “like a freaking quarterback” and need not be tackled. On Wednesday, Fisher watched Gurley end up near the bottom of a pile during a scuffle with his own teammates and said, “We all need to be smarter than that.”

The Rams are being uber-cautious with Gurley, because he will carry a heavy load in the offense and because he showed last year that he doesn’t necessarily need to play in preseason games. Many have wondered if Gurley should simply not play at all until the regular season, which is probably something Fisher has thought about himself.
