    So far this year more people have died in school shootings than in the Military. Jeez! What a sad commentary for our Country.

    That list of Highest Paid Totals for QBs have the following Superbowl Experience from the link.

    9 Appearances between Flacco (1), E Manning (2), Brees (1), Ryan (1), Roethlisberger (3) and Rodgers (1).

    7 Wins between those guys Flacco (1), E Manning (2), Brees (1), Roethisberger (2) and Rodgers (1).

    Guys on that list with 0 appearances, Stafford and Rivers.

    I am not in the camp that thinks Flacco sucks; he's a good QB. But the problem is that the market doesn't pay you to be a "good" they pay you regardless because the fear of being the Browns or Jets is too much to bare.

    @veda-the-moor They haven't found any connection; not saying it's not suspect but that was known for a while and he avoided any positive tests since then.

    this article highlights how much of a discount Brady has given the Patriots.

    If you look at the top paid QBs of the past 5 seasons, they are all either at 1 or no Super Bowls in that time. Flacco, who we all think sucks now.. may not actually suck that bad.. his contract may just be that much of a hindrance on his team. There is a chart in the article, if nothing else, look at that.

    Of course MLB turned a blind eye towards PEDs. IMHO: Mostly because HRs sell tickets. I could go on, but it's pretty obvious.

    I should create another thread but in regards to MLB and steroids/PEDs, I've never felt they've done a good enough job and just assume more people are juicing than we'll ever know. This is largely due to MLB turning a blind eye to actually addressing their problem.

    The NFL, warts and all, have at least had a PED law in-place for as long as I can remember.

    Also, I never hear about PEDs/Steroids in the NBA...

    Back to the Mariners, they were a long-shot to make the playoffs with Cano and now they're an even longer shot. When Cano comes back, he'll be a 35-year-old 2B that isn't juicing anymore... how good can he be?

    The interesting thing with Cano is that it does free up 12 million dollars in salary.. so it may be that they are able use that money to shore up somewhere..I read that with some teams off to a red hot start some teams may go into sell mode earlier than usual and that 12 million could come in handy.

    Felix..well.. personally I dont have a real opinion..he isnt pitching great but I want to think he will actually improve as he learns to transition to a different type of pitcher than he was in his dominant era.

    Tech Crunch Link:

    The Senate today voted 52-47 to disapprove the FCC’s recent order replacing 2015’s net neutrality rules, a pleasant surprise for internet advocates and consumers throughout the country. Although the disapproval will almost certainly not lead to the new rules being undone, it is a powerful statement of solidarity with a constituency activated against this deeply unpopular order.

    The FCC's original plan is still setup to go through June 1st but this is a huge step in restoring the original laws set in place.

    This would have to pass the House and then signed by Trump.
