RetireChrebet Icon : (22 March 2015 - 01:28 PM) Haha I'm jk man, but my point was if you've never seen virginia play you would know they weren't going anywhere. Their offense is just painful to watch.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:46 PM) Lol....point taken. But a couple of things. 1 you do realize Nova and Va are in the same bracket right? 2 at least Va lost to a top 25 ranked opponent. Nova lost to an unranked.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:49 PM) Also VA beat some good teams. Lost to Duke,beat Maryland and split games with NC and Louisville. Their wins against quality and ranked opponents was higher and better than Nova.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:55 PM) NC State didn't even get one vote to be in the top 25

ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 05:56 AM) Az bitches!!!
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:01 AM) I dont know about all that. As bad as we get over sports the Brits get far worse. You might suffer a huge beat down if you say the wrong thing there. Well maybe not being its televised to the U.S.. Security probably be pretty tight.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:03 AM) Well...... the good thing is I know who to mooch off of now if I go to London.
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 06:47 AM) hahahaha, it isnt European Football!
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:04 AM) Ive seen a lot of videos. Most countries go psycho over their soccer teams. Ive seen some serious very bloody beat downs. Fans stabbing the players and refs,etc. And they say we are bad in the U.S. not even close to that.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:06 AM) I think one was in Africa....a fan stormed the field and was knifing everyone in sight after his team lost
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:08 AM) Hell even in mma when the Brits come over they are all cocky as hell. Big time cocky like they are going to easily destroy everyone they face cocky.
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 07:36 AM) hahahaha
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 07:36 AM) damn Europeans!
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 07:37 AM) They havent fucked with a disgruntled, lifelong Jets fan!!!
Smedsthejet Icon : (Yesterday, 02:49 PM) Got my tickets from Ticketmaster the day they went on general sale
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 02:33 AM) You guys get Bellator in London? http://www.bellator.com/schedule its on Spike tv free regular cable channel. in the U.S. and the prelims are free on http://www.spike.com/
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 02:37 AM) London is 4 hours ahead of east coast U.S. Bellator prelims are 7pm Friday night U.S. East Coast time and the main card is 9pm So just add 4 hours to that if you can catch either. Im sure you can catch a stream or use a U.S. VPN if you dont have access to Spike.com. You guys might get Bellator on another channel their just like with the UFC.
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 02:47 AM) Anyway only reason I mentioned it was because of your sense of humor. The last Bellator 134 was called the British Invasion. If you watch mma Might want to add this site to your favorites http://www.mmauk.net...y/bellatornews/
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 02:55 AM) There was one of those hour long shows about the upcoming event featuring the fighters the prior week to Bellator 134 and all 4 of the Brits were cocky as hell. Yelling "The British are coming!!!!"
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 02:57 AM) By the way 135 is tonight if you are interested. I used to watch pretty much all the televised mma now I stick with Bellator and UFC only
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 03:07 AM) that last link is a UK mma site. Only reason i added it. http://www.sherdog.com/ is pretty much the best mma site on the net for everything mma
JSOTF Icon : (Today, 07:08 AM) I actually live in Germany
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 09:08 PM) Just got done sitting in traffic for 3 hours in Louisville KY.
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 09:09 PM) Unbelievably poor planning by the DOT.

DeSean Jackson doesn’t vacation on Revis Island

By FRANK WARD
DailyPhiladelphian.com Editor

DeSean Jackson gets it. Hell, even agent Drew Rosenhaus gets it.

Holdouts aren’t good for business. They’re not good for the team nor the player involved. Teams suffer from missing their best players. The player suffers from a hit to their image as being greedy bastards.

In Philly, all you have to do is say two words to conjure up images of a self-centered pinhead or two: “Next question.”

Eagles fans can rest quietly in knowing that DeSean Jackson is not Terrell Owens when it comes to angling for a new deal. He isn’t joining Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis on Holdout Island this summer. Nor is he ripping apart team chemistry and doing sit-ups in his driveway.

Instead, Jackson has been at every session of training camp and looked much like the leader of the Eagles team. He’s meeting injured players at midfield. He’s getting the troops pumped for battle. He is the face of the franchise and relishing the opportunity to be such.

The two-position Pro Bowler, who everyone agrees has outperformed his rookie contract that pays him $800,000 this year, broke his silence this week in saying, “I’m just here to play football. All that other stuff, I could care less about.”

DeSean Jackson continues to downplay his desire for a new contract. He's clearly outperformed the $800,000 he's scheduled to earn this season.

Don’t believe every word of that. He cares about the payday; everyone does. But, he’s not going to let it affect him or his team’s chances to do good things this season. The better the team does, the more money he can make.

DJacc has a good head on his shoulders and good advisers. He realizes there’s more to a bank account than the money you earn from the NFL. There’s endorsements, appearances, media opportunities and other things that sometimes blow an NFL salary out of the water. A holdout, especially one by an elite receiver in Philadelphia, would kill those opportunities. It’s better to be seen as a professional who wants to play football and win.

That’s precisely what Jackson is doing. And, for all the ill will we have against his agent Drew Rosenhaus, the fact is that Drew doesn’t hold players out. At least he hasn’t since Terrell Owens. Chad Ochocinco, Anquan Boldin and others griped about contracts for years but still played.

While many fans were concerned when Jackson switched to Rosenhaus last year, the fact is we shouldn’t have been. Rosenhaus, Jackson and the Eagles know a new contract needs to be done. Jackson is that “special case” Joe banner often alludes to when the Eagles rarely do rip up contracts and renegotiate. However, both sides also know nothing can really be done in terms of a contract that will keep DJacc here for years until a new CBA is agreed to.

DeSean Jackson realizes the value of your image among the fans. A holdout would devalue that.

For now, DJacc is here ready to keep making history and lead this team to perform to the best of its ability. If you question his leadership ability, just read the comments he had in the Inquirer earlier this week.

“I’m not doing that this year. I could care less about all of that,” he told the paper. “I’m here to win games and to be a team player and to do everything I can to encourage my guys [to] go out there and just be successful and win games, that’s all I care about.”

That's true. Revis has really sunk in my eyes but football fans, we're just like dumb girls. After all the months of playing headgames, all Revis has to do is make another one handed int off Brady and we'll be back to thinking of him during sex... well at least 115 will.
