ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 05:56 AM) Az bitches!!!
ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 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 : (26 March 2015 - 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 : (27 March 2015 - 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 : (27 March 2015 - 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 : (27 March 2015 - 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 : (27 March 2015 - 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 : (27 March 2015 - 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 : (27 March 2015 - 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

@AdamSchefter NFL is proposing to overhaul its calendar, pushing back the combine to early March, free agency to early April, and the draft to early May.

Sure... makes perfect sense. Everything is going great, why not potentially put the draft against the NBA playoffs? f***ing Goodell.

Goodell has yet to do anything positive for the league. He seriously needs to go soon before he completely kills it.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

The owners love him. He's not going anywhere.

This is a brilliant move from the league's perspective. It gives them a prime "event" each month leading up to training camps. The NFL isn't scared of the NBA Playoffs, and whether you think that's pompous or stupid, they probably shouldn't be. Unless your team is playing that night, the vast majority of fans will dedicate three hours to watch the NFL draft as opposed to an NBA playoff game. Hell, even if your team is playing that night, fans still will probably watch at least some of the NFL draft.

Apparently the PLPA is strongly against delaying free agency, so it may be moot.

The NBA is a bigger brand than the NFL. I think more likely is that people are going to watch playoffs games and switch to NFL in time to see their team pick. If I have a choice between watching a quarter of NBA playoff action or seeing what Jacksonville, Cleveland and Seattle do in the draft, I'm picking NBA. Remember, the draft isn't an action event. You can see all the picks on the ticker. It's not like if you miss the moment the Seahawks draft a DL you're going to be kicking yourself forever.

I think you're underestimating the NFL brand in the US. Sure, the NBA is a bigger brand in the sense that basketball is a more global sport. But, for the casual fan, I'd be willing to bet they'd take the NFL Draft over a first round game between the Spurs and Warriors.

You baseball fans correct me if I'm wrong but if they made this change wouldn't that be around the same time of opening day/week of the MLB season too?

There are a few things I have realized about Mr. Jet over a few topics.

1) He is a racist. By constantly using race as a battling tool.
2) He is an extreme Liberal. If you are on either extreme you are probabaly more wrong than right.
3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.
4)His life sucks and he takes it out on people who don't share in his views.

Opening day/week is typically around the first week of April.

The NFL is going after the rest of the sports league in this country. Makes sense if you're strickly a football fan. Goodell is cutting in thier pockets. Say what you want but its a damn good move if you're the NFL. There's no gap in football for the average fan. I don't mind it at all. Baseball and basketball fans will have issues with this. I personally don't give a hoot. NFL is the most popular sport in this country. Why not make this strategic move.

From today's MMQB:

4. I think I am dreading this expanded NFL calendar, if it happens. And I can tell you what the already overburdened coaches and scouts and front office people would think of late March/early-April free agency and a mid-May draft: More meaningless hype to shop the NFL product, less time to be a person. As one agent said to me: "I have not talked to a single person in the business -- coach, scout, agent -- who wants this to happen.''
