  1. The narrative of Snyder should sell the team is getting ridiculous at the moment with this scandal. The pitchforks are out for Snyder not because of this issue but because many hate the man. That's fine but the folks using this as a springboard for something so large as that are completely ignoring what the true issue may be here and are showing their fangs. Also discounting the ones that have said this did not happen are just as bad as those saying its 100 percent true. We were not there. Period. The bias and condescending snarks that people keep showing is a tired game. If you hate this team as much as some of you say then simply leave it. You do not believe them. Fine. Stand on your own moral ground and go. Don't make a huge issue. Just leave. Courts and public opinion will decide this stories fate. The team is the devil yet still here commentating on your soap boxes threatening to leave. Go.
  2. 1. Who knows? Perhaps other cheerleaders perspectives that none of this happened? 2. Maybe when those that deny this start speaking about it? 3. I don't know if these claims are true and neither do you. Only one of us have made up their minds to the validity of the statements made so far. 4. We may never know. However with time I would assume more will come out on the matter to determine an accurate reaction. 5. Always could be someone hiding in the grass about something. How do we know these cheerleaders were not put up to saying this? Maybe one of them is pissed that their career did not turn out how they wished. We have no idea in reality as of yet. I don't know and none of us do as of yet! 6. See number 5. If said cheerleader is pissed off at someone why not go after the very people that she is pissed off at to damage and hurt them if at all possible. 7. Truth. These women could be talking out of their asses. We don't know yet. I'm not going to blast the team over an event yet when there are other women denying about what was written in this article. 8. I am a neutral party in this. I am stating the case for the unheard here. They may be telling the truth. Just because I am waiting before I go jump off a bridge about it and hear all sides does not mean I am passing judgement. Bottom line is many are assuming this is all true. I am not. I will withhold my view on it until I have heard all sides and well hell even some proof instead of just allegations. Just because I don't feel like attacking the GM, owner. commish, or anyone else doesn't make me a bad person. It just makes me a little more patient in my outrage.
  3. This is the thing though. No matter what if this is true or not this just makes the Redskins look bad. This could be totally fabricated. That's the main thing I'm bent about. Damage is already done. Does not matter now because we are on a minute to minute news cycle and whomever gets the most clicks wins. Truth be damned. Society likes to blast people into oblivion on stories and reports while they could give a good **** if anything is of truth. Being that other cheerleaders are already coming out and refuting this report makes its a question of truth to the original report. Modern journalism makes no effort in thorough reporting anymore and throw **** against a wall hoping it sticks.
  4. I hate that no matter what facts are given as soon as a story breaks its automatically true and the hell with and facts that come out later. This guilty before innocent society that is present today is literally a witch hunt anymore. As soon as someone has an axe to grind somewhere someone will no doubt go to obscene lengths to damage other humans. True or not this damning of fellow human beings before even knowing any truth is the scariest part of any allegation.

    I went back after hanging my head about drafting Payne first round over James and Edmunds and watched some film with fresh eyes hoping something has changed. Sadly for me it has not. I could not get excited for him after watching cut ups again. I still see the same issues even though he now wears the Burgundy and Gold. I wish I could get on board here but I just cant. Hopefully he can change my mind. Guice on the other hand I like. I was not high on him initially in the process but have grown not only to like the pick but love it. Johnson was my wish here but I believe I will be more than happy with Guice. The tackle I was less impressed about and still am. While I do not hate it I think we should have went in a different direction with a 3rd rounder. The safety I think could have been taken later on as well but I wont buck them on this pick. Guy is a bullet on the field and is a good teams guy. Of the remaining picks I loved the Settle snag in the 5th. I think ultimately we get more out of him than Payne. Luke warm on the Hamilton pick but I think he can bump one of the backups off the team if healthy. Is not a dummy and can call plays so that is a big thumbs up from me. Stroman is depth to me. Not expecting much out of him at all. Loved the Quinn pick. I am thinking he will hold down the number 4 receiver spot when the dust settles and I have a sneaking suspicion that he will be Crowder's replacement. Love the pick. Lastly I would like to thank the work of @Skinsinparadise, the tape review of @clskinsfan, the thorough discussion and takes from @JamesMadisonSkins, and lastly sharing pretty much the same mindset as @mistertim. I really enjoyed discussing this draft with all of you guys and many others. It was the most enjoyable time I have had yet on this board and look forward to more interesting if not entertaining discussions in the future!

    I know the play you are talking about. It did not look great for him but in his defense Allen made another linebacker his **** on the same play. In the range we are at now I think he could help the team. He is very instinctive if nothing else and gets into gaps super quick. Looking at our backup ILB I could see him knocking Spaight or Vigil out of a spot. Especially Spaight.

    Josey Jewell, Cedric Wilson, Keke Coutee, Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, and Maurice Hurst are all on my list for today. I would be happy with just one of them but I doubt they will show interest in any.

    Hoping that Kerryon Johnson is the pick. But I am sure they will go after the player I want the least in Royce Freeman. Or they will go with a guard and not pick up a RB at all this draft. After the massive reach in the 1st they may as well draft a tackle. Who knows anymore.

    Plenty of guys are worth that spot. I don't know who will fall. No one does. But I am looking for an impact player. Someone that can change the game in the blink of an eye. A kid that can set the NFC East on its ear. Stats are not the end all. We all know that. But I think people don't understand how actually punchless Payne is in regards to that. It's not just bad its scary bad. I hear a lot of its due to scheme. That's fine and all but other NT's seem to make at least a little noise stat wise. Why didn't Payne? Why does he get a pass with this? And if the Skins pick him then they do. I will support him. But lets not act like the Redskins have not made any mistakes drafting. All teams do. And I believe this would be a huge one if too early. Time will tell.

    Alabama is stacked on defense. That run defense has many many players on it that are going to become pros. Payne being on it should not simply gift him into the number 13 pick. There are many many other NT's that check those physical and mental boxes too that have way better production than this guy. I have heard he is young so he can grow, he is the reason Alabama has the best defense, his stats don't matter, he was seen rescuing puppies from a burning pet store, saying "Here comes the Payne" is too hard to pass up, he serves soup to the homeless in his free time and lastly he invented the question mark. I am over the Payne train if you will. At the end of the day zero of these NT's are worth the 13th pick and NT's doing the exact same technique and clogging up those blockers can be had later in the draft which will do just as well as the almighty making it rain Payne.

    Here is the problem with it. I'm not directing this at you but many including myself do not think Payne even sniffs being one of the best NT's in the draft. There are many other quality NT out there that don't have Alabama on their jersey and very many people on this board only see the crimson tide as the only way to get a good lineman. It's like no one thinks that any NT's exist after Vea and Payne and its maddening.

    My favorite player in the draft. I just don't think we even sniff at him. Would love to be wrong.

    So much smoke this time of year. We are totally all in on Baker Mayfield and no one even knows it yet haha.
  14. 2018 Comprehensive NFL Draft Thread

    Skins are totally the ones saying he is too silly and getting that message out there big time. They want him to drop as far as they can trade back to pick him up.
  15. 2018 Comprehensive NFL Draft Thread

    Just remember that typically every year there is about 3 players or so going much quicker than expected causing 1 or 2 guys to fall way further than predicted. Someone is going to be there that the Skins can use. The question is will they take him or add a 3rd or second. Going to be super interesting. Im still saying Nelson. Just have a feeling.
