    Preseason is here.

    I'll start it off with a sure fire hot button question...

    Bills fans:

    Ragland out for the season.
    IK out for the season.
    Manny Lawson, out for the preseason.
    Shaq Lawson, out until Oct/Nov.

    Do you dare call Greg Hardy?

    Preseason Game 1 - Cardale Jones looked great. Kevin Seymour looks like a steal at CB and Duke Williams came to play. Impressed with Cyrus K.

    I'll preface this by saying I was much more conservative than you when it came to Incognito. I wanted no part of that guy and he has turned out really well. But no on Hardy. To me. last year with Dallas was his chance to show he could grow up and he still caused problems.

    But it will be interesting to see what they do because of all the injuries. Lawson's shoulder injuries were known and we took a chance on him so that's on us. But everyone else that has come up lame is just unreal. Ragland kills me because I was really excited about that pick - not saying his career is over or anything, but he would have played a huge role this year.

    That's encouraging about Cyrus. I really liked that pick at the time but this seems like a do or die year for him.

    He was a pain in the butt last year, the guy should have acted like an angel after what he did, and he didn't. We desperately need Dl help, and I wanted no part of him.

    For the first time in over a decade I actually have realistic positive expectations about a Raiders season

    I like football, but I hate knowing we're entering the time of year when it becomes 90% of the sports conversation.

    Truth. And it seemingly never goes below 25-33%. Conservative estimate.

    I get why. Football in our country prints money. It's great for a lot of people that it completely dominates. I just don't love it that much.

    Heard.

    I'm a soccer guy first, so I tend to unintentionally insulate myself from the football overkill with BBC media as my first go-to. I get the proper "football" coverage there. Although for the rest of the world, soccer is just like our football. Another sport with basically zero offseason.

    and yet you've searched out a thread on a relatively obscure board to post your displeasure.

    truth is...you love the NFL.

    You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want the NFL, you need the NFL.

    So clearly, that rules out baseball and golf.

    Hockey and hoop only??

    I hope people enjoy Brady being suspended for not cooperating now the NFL is going to suspend James Harrison, Julius Peppers, and Clay Matthews for not meeting with the NFL.

    What a joke Emperor Goodell is. If you have evidence make a case. These players don't have to make themselves available without the NFL having something.

    Peyton Manning was such a sellout to these players and the union. He kissed the NFL's ring and even though Charlie Sly said the Mannings had drugs sent in Ashley Manning's name he was cleared. Peyton is such a freaking company sellout for meeting with the NFL.

    The NFL is now going to suspend without proving anything anymore. Good times.

    So Karlos Williams, Marcell Darius, Shaq Lawson, will miss week 4 and the Pats will lose Tom Brady.
    Pegula is going to have to pay a fine for two Bills being suspended.

    It is so fitting that Kaiser likes Donald Trump and supports Roger Goodell. Goodell is such an amazing POS that it is funny anyone supports him now. The power this man has is amazing.

    that was collectively bargained for.

    Brady shouldn't be suspended 4 games for his crime...but his crime after the crime, warrants it.

    let me ask you, if Troy Vincent sent the letter...should they show for a meeting??

    their insubordination should be dealt with quickly and legally.

    suspensions work.

    How about the NFL actually do their investigation and after they have then present what they have in form of charges against the players.

    The players aren't bound to sit down without the NFL having probable cause. The players didn't fail drug tests. They want the players to incriminate themselves that is bleeping joke.

    How about Roger Goodell give his phone and email records the the NFLPA and prove he never saw the Ray Rice video like he claimed.

    It is a joke. Either do the investigation or drop it. The players shouldn't be forced to say anything unless the NFL has something. Innocent until proven guilty. Not prove your innocence.

    I hadn't heard about Dareus. Geez, great thing to do after signing the big money extension. Only one preseason game done and I'm already at week 12 frustration level with the Bills and all their injuries and suspensions.
