    They were brilliant coaches who were put in charges of personnel, and both were kind of terrible at it.

    I'm curious if any top prospects follow this route. The dirty little secret is that while it's completely wrong to force players to go to college, it's actually a fairly safe holding pattern for the player. You go to wherever, take two classes first semester, have a full-time tutor help you keep your GPA, you play a relatively easy college season, and you drop out of school in the middle of second semester after the tourney. And - as Kyrie and others have shown - you can milk an injury all year and never play and never put your body at risk. $125K for a year sounds good, but the G league is kind of a grind. 50 games in **** buildings. I think this will be great for the marginal pros who are not college ready, but it's not going to impact anyone with a chance of going in the top 15.

    Ugh. You're also the worst.

    So, basically, the Skins PR team is now a few guys who used to handle some double AA team in Mobile or Biloxi or something. Is Max Patkin still alive? Let's bring him out to the park. PS I am very sad to report that Max Patkin died <checks internet> 19 years ago.

    There is zero evidence that the Skins fanbase is collapsing. There is a lot of evidence that the Skins fanbase doesn't like going to FedEx any longer. Those are not the same things at all. In 2018, I think all sports fandoms go through dormant periods based on the product on the field. People don't watch necessarily out of habit any longer. If you're bad or not interesting, you don't attract fans. If you are, you do. You really really really really really really really really really hate it when restaurants put a lemon in your water. I mean, you don't express it in any way. But you are totally peeved.

    That's really insightful. But I won't to build on this. You know what other fan base is exactly like this. EVERY ****ING SINGLE ONE OF THEM. Thank you. You made an excellent point. Raiders fans don't count. I think 85 percent of Raiders fans have never been in Northern California. There fan base is basically every deviant with a crank addiction who likes that particular color scheme. There's a reason they sell a ton of merchandise but consistently play in front of no fans regardless of what city they are in. The move to Vegas brilliant. All Raiders fans are paid in cash. So once they save up enough money, they can move their car - which doubles as their home - to Vegas for a few months.

    Honey, tonight, I was thinking of putting a little salt on the boiled chicken. Whoa whoa whoa. Let's not get too crazy here.

    Is this really turning into a discussion about who is a good fan and who isn't? Aren't most of you jags, like, 40?

    You're just the worst..... I seriously hate everyone.

    You guys fawning over one game are missing the big picture. The Celtics screwed up the 2017 draft and are going to be mediocre forever because Markelle Fultz is a superstar and Tatum is just a guy. Seriously....don't you watch basketball?

    I'm not originally from DC. I chose this team, because I was 8 and they were good. Want to know what I'm pissed off? Because sports are insane. Nowhere else in life are you punished for a bad decision you made when you were 8 years old unless, you know, you murdered your parents or something. My Redskins fandom is the equivalent of a felony conviction. I can't escape it. That's really what the Redskins slogan should be. "Washington Redskins: Like peeing behind a school when you are 18, it stays on your record forever."

    The Redskins are the Mama's Family of football. They are on every week whether you want them to be or not. And that's just fine. Kleese thinks Vicki Lawrence is a hoot, and who has the right to question him? You? I think not.

    You know what I hate? Ice cubes. Give me a glass of tepid, room temperature water, and I'm a happy man. And no goddamn bubbles either. Those excite the blood. I'm a simple man of simple tastes. I sit in my Barco-lounger every Sundary, turn on my 19-inch Zenith and I watch my Redskins. You know my favorite thing about the Redskins? They never miss a game - unless it's a bye week of course. And, let me tell you, I do love bye weeks. Every year, on the bye, I take a 4 block walk at a very reasonable pace. Then I come home, eat some cottage cheese, and read Pilgrims Progress, which is the only book I read besides the Bible. But back to the Redskins. They are always there. If the schedule maker says that they play at 1 PM, you can bet your bottom dollar that they will be there at 1 PM. Unless there is a bad storm or a national tragedy. And frankly some things are more important than football. As long as the Skins show up, each Sunday or occasional Monday or I suppose a Thursday, I'm watching them. Because they never let me down by not being there. Unless someone important dies of course. To me, that's what fandom is. It's a contract. The Skins show up, and I cheer their effort. Because, let's face it, these fellas try hard. It's a tough sport. You know, when you think about it, the worst fans are the ones who pay attention to things like "records" and "scores" and "standings."Sherman Helmsley never kept score. He just showed up week after week, called someone a honky, and entertained America. And that's what the Redkins are to me. Appointment television. Because they are always there.

    Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    If we are being fair, no one ever said what kind of shape it was.
