Why a messageboard when folks can just comment on posts here at the blog? Well, as pointed out to me several months ago, sometimes Ryan and I just don’t hit on all of the topics that folks want to comment about. So, there it is…a Joboo Messageboard. Hope folks like it.
David Beckham coming to MLS is not all that surprising…that MLS has the capability to add a 0 to the dollar amount on a 5 year/25million dollar contract shocks the hell out of me. With 250mill over 5 years, can’t they convince ESPN to…I don’t know…SUFFOCATE us with highlights? Pay ABC to show more games in better timeslots? PROMOTE THE SPORT?
Two Hundred and Fifty million damn dollars…the MLS had that?
As for what Beckham will do in MLS…
Who the hell knows. Probably play in a lot of games that people in America will not watch. This move probably makes MLS more popular Internationally and maintains the status quo of Americans not giving a damn. Is it worth 250 million just to have International sentiment towards the MLS go from…
“Well, I don’t know anything about the league, I hear it’s terrible” to “wow, that MLS sure is terrible.”
UPDATE: Some dude from MLS on these dollars…”That’s a separate deal. That’s his deal with CAA (Creative Artists Agency) and 19 Entertainment. That’s not something we’re involved in.”
That is very good to know. Earlier today I pretty much assumed that the MLS folks knew the world was coming to an end in 5 years, so they felt like kicking around all their money.
”He has run away from the challenge,” Shula told the Miami Herald. ”It’s unbelievable. There were four or five direct statements that were blatant lies. That tells you a little bit about the guy.”
And it also tells you that Shula is bitter as hell.
God forbid a guy, who by many accounts did not even want to go to pro football and only did so when the offer was one he couldn’t refuse and was persistently talked into, goes to a place for two years…WINS MORE GAMES THAN HE SHOULD HAVE, puts a team in a position to compete now and clears salary cap space.
The Saban bashing is a joke. He’s not loyal, he’s running away from a challenge. Yeah, the hell with that.
Most Men would do anything to get OUT of Prison…BUT…Maurice Clarett would do anything he could to get IN…
Break In…Break Out…Save Your Brother’s Life.
Those are the words with which I carry my life. My name is Maurice Clarett. You may know me from scoring touchdowns on fools in the Fiesta, taking more cash than Reggie Bush and getting a one year suspension, running a 5.2 40 yard dash, robbing someone of their cell phone with a gun in my waist (Am I a joke? No), rolling through the streets of Ohio wearin’ my vest, strapped with the AK and my bottle. That’s where you know me. Now, now find out why I am doing what I can do, when I can. My life is not just about Maurice Clarett…or football…my life is about a higher calling. Today, by being sentenced to three and a half years I begin to take steps to free an innocent man. A man persecuted by those who live to persecute and sully the good names of my brothers. Today, I enter a Prison, to break my man out…to break out…my brother in arms…Cecil Collins.
“Apparently” Reggie Bush and his family received $100,000 in benefits while he was still an “amateur” athlete at USC. You know what I say. . .more power to you Reggie. I’m fairly certain that 100k doesn’t even scratch the surface of how much money Reggie generated for the school, conference and the NCAA. I know all about the supposed evils of paying college athletes and a lot of them make sense. So while leaving out the bigger discussion of whether or not we should or shouldn’t pay college athletes and just give some props for Reggie getting his. Read More
