Is the attitude and off field issues that got people worried.

regardless of who the Browns drafted, the fan base was going to poke holes in them

Browns fans wouldnt know what to do if they didnt have something to whine and cry about with the team.

the Carson Wentz trade is finalized when the Browns used the last of their picks from that trade (and a offshoot trades) this weekend

One of the big ones, talking about the endless 24-7 churn of crap, to the point where you're inventing 2019 mock draft articles just to fill space until training camp starts: "I still love my job. I still lover covering what I cover. But, I don't really lover doing it in May and June."

CFB Kickoff for most teams today.

Let's all take a moment and remember 11 years ago today

That Oklahoma - Florida Atlantic game today was stupidly one-sided.

The best matchup going into the game was Auburn - Washington.  It ended up being a good game with Auburn winning what was essentially a home game.

Penn State just about lost to Appalachian State today.  Had to win it in overtime.

This is a long business story about the NFL.
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/features/2018-09-13/nfl-makes-more-money-than-ever-and-things-have-never-been-worse

Main points:
1] NFL is generating more cash than ever before
2] NFL viewership continues to decline
3] NFL had 37 of the top 50 viewed shows on TV - while their ratings fall.
4] Youth football participation dropped 22% last year (attributed to concussion research)
5] NFL is now one of the top politicized brands in the USA measured by ratings of Republicans/Democrats and the difference between them.

In terms of providing a ton of facts, this story was pretty awesome.

The quote that I thought was the best was "The NFL is the top performer in the Hospice Ward of broadcast television."

After yesterday's 21-7 UM win over Mich St

Quote
“We knew that they couldn’t hang with us,” Michigan’s Chase Winovich said. “We did what we have to do. Sometimes your little brother starts acting up and you’ve just got to put ‘em in place.”
Winovich went on Twitter afterward to clarify his remarks.
