    Amplifying the voice(s) of athletes by relentlessly pursuing unity and encouraging athletes to address society’s challenges relating to social justice, wealth disparity, health and wellness and more hot-button issues they are passionate about.

    No one will care about the political opinions of second-rate football players and viewers will quickly turn it off. Heck, I really don’t care about the opinions of first rate football players or celebrities either.

    Derwin will be an All Pro as a rookie.

    The best defensive play drafted.

    Licht should hang his head in shame for passing on this no brainer.

    The Bucs would be in the playoffs like the Chargers if they had made this easy pick.

    Joe reminded me of PETA nonsense two days in a row.

    Maybe that poor guy was just trying to “bring home the bagels” to his pregnant wife. That’s a stressful job at 4am. He could have tried to “feed two birds with one scone” but Starbucks was closed. We should get his side of the story before we judge. Don’t wanna “feed a fed horse” after all.

    The bagel buyer guy. OMG. It’s not funny for the employee but I can;t help but laugh watching the video.
