Wideout Harry Douglas returns to Falcons practice, still has whitest name ever

Friday, October 24th, 2014

The Atlanta Falcons may finally be getting some good news regarding an injured player. Wide receiver Harry Douglas, who missed four games due to a foot injury, has made the trip to London with the team and participated in Thursday’s practice.

We asked Douglas how it was going and he explained “I am a proud African American man….. named Harry Douglas. How do think its going?”

The Falcons have been positively decimated by injuries this year. Asked to comment on the fact that he’s finally getting at least one playmaker back from injury, head coach Mike Smith said “Is he the fat white guy that played right tackle? If so, that’s great; our offensive line is in bad shape.”

Harry’s return should take some of the load off of Julio Jones. Jones added, “Harry Douglas? Sounds like a white dude that sells shit. I suppose you think coach’s name is DaQwan Smith. Get out of my face snowflake.”

Turning our attention to reverse fantasy football, it’s been a bit since we’ve had a Suckleague update. I can safely report I’m HALF doing well every week. Cases in points… case in points… cases in point… (here’s what the fuck has been happening)

Week 6 saw Oakland’s defense collapse spectacularly against San Diego, yielding me a stout -6.00 points. However, Derek Carr threw 4 touchdowns. Let me type that again – Derek Carr threw 4 touchdowns netting me 33.44. Obviously we won’t speak of week 6 any longer.

Week 7 witnessed Teddy Bridgewater throw 2 picks and get sacked 5 times. And yes, even though at one point he became disoriented and scored a touchdown, he still posted a very respectable 0.84. All I needed was a decently fetid defensive performance and I’d finally be in the red. As the Bengals have been in free fall for a few weeks now, I thought the Colts would show them a healthy trouncing. And they did, gingerly beating Andy Dalton (SEE WHAT I DID THERE?) and the rest of the Cincinnati Ballerinos 27-0. HOWEVER, they recovered 2 fumbles and registered 2 sacks generating a rather douchey +7.00.

On to week 8 – the quest for horror continues.

Cowboys running back arrested for shoplifting

Thursday, October 16th, 2014

Dallas Cowboys back up running back Joseph Randle was arrested for shoplifting from a suburban mall Monday night. Randle was charged with a misdemeanor according to Texas police. He was released on bond at 1:20 a.m. Tuesday. Frisco Police Lt. Jason Jenkins said Randle is accused of attempting to steal cologne from Dillard’s in Stonebriar Centre Mall.

A team source said Tuesday evening that the Cowboys would fine Randle an amount that has yet to be determined but will not suspend him. However, the team indicated on Wednesday there would in fact be no fine. The fine, which was initially going to be $29,000, was thrown out when it was discovered that the cologne Randall had stolen was in fact a bottle of Axe body spray.

“What the fuck, does he want to smell like a fat kid at a middle school prom?” said team owner Jerry Jones, “It would be wrong to fine somebody that stupid.”

Quarterback Tony Romo indicated he was very shocked by the whole incident, “He stole Axe? Is he retarded? That shit smells like an armpit.”

Head coach Jason Garrett addressed the media earlier this afternoon in an attempt to diffuse the situation. “He’s an impressionable young man. He was going by those stupid commercials that have all the hot women groping men because they’re wearing Axe. He and I had a good talk in the locker room this morning. Trust me, he’s really sorry. Joseph finally sprayed some Axe and smelled it. He immediately broke down crying. Then he vomited in the sink. Then he dry heaved uncontrollably for about 20 minutes. Then he vomited again. Then he lost control of his bowels, and dry heaved uncontrollably for another 30 minutes. Then he resumed crying. Afterwards, we all agreed that the combination of shit, vomit, bile, and jockstrap smell still had a better scent than Axe.”

Rex Ryan insists the Jets are not dead

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

Rex Ryan’s team is a total mess this year, as the Jets have spiraled to a 1-5 record.

Fresh off their latest loss to the Denver Broncos, Ryan and the Jets are now face New England on a short week who showed up strong on Sunday. Despite another season of disarray, Ryan is still hopeful. “My message is pretty simple: Hey, we might be counted out, (but) we’re not dead,” Ryan told reporters Monday, according to The Associated Press. “We are going to fight our tails off.”

Ryan elaborated, “Imagine we’re a patient in a hospital with Ebola. Is that dead? No, it most certainly isn’t. The Jets are not dead. Are we just like a guy in the ER who’s been shot in the heart but the bullet is lodged just right so that he’s not bleeding but if you were to remove the bullet he’d hemorrhage profusely and be dead in seconds? Yes, we’re exactly like that. Notice, however, that guy isn’t dead. The Jets are not dead.”

“You could also imagine we’re like a utility worker who was struck by lightning while working on a traffic signal, fell 30 feet to the pavement below, broke his neck, then got run over by a cement truck and is currently gasping his last few breaths. Is that guy dead? No, what part of still breathing don’t you understand? The Jets are not dead. Are the Jets very similar to a severed head lying a bucket of heads that’s just been guillotined and still has the ability to move its eyes and remaining conscious for 15 seconds before perishing? Completely. The key point there? Conscious. The Jets are not dead. Next question.”

Raiders’ Tony Sparano has team bury football, as well as 3 prostitutes he murdered

Thursday, October 9th, 2014

The Oakland Raiders are not in good shape. The team started the year 0-4, then fired head coach Dennis Allen before making assistant head coach Tony Sparano their interim coach.

Sparano, apparently looking for the team to make a fresh start mentally, had the players bury a football after practice as a symbolic gesture, as well as 3 prostitutes he ritually murdered some time ago.

A video from NFL Media shows Sparano with a shovel and a ball, as well as the bloodied bodies of 3 dead prostitutes, telling his team to bury the memories of their 0-4 start along with the ball. “What this ball represents and what this hole represents are the first four games of the season, the first quarter of our season, as well as 3 prostitutes I ritually murdered”, Sparano told his team, via a video posted on the team’s website, before making them actually cover the football (and prostitutes) with dirt.

And with that, week 5 Suckleague reverse fantasy football is in the books, which has pretty much been me ritually murdering myself with terrible decisions.

The week started smashingly well. My field general was none other than the delicate Christian Ponder – and did he ever want it. Until he stopped wanting it that is. Going into the 2nd half of Thursday night’s match-up against the Packers of Green Bay, “CP1″ had amassed some impressive stats – virtually no yards, a bunch of sacks and 2 interceptions. The clouds were finally parting, this was the week it was all going to come together. I could see the sun! You know until the clouds all got together again and started raining elephant urine all over my head. In a tragic admission that he has no business throwing a football in an NFL game, Ponder ran for a touchdown, dragging his up to that point lurid stats into the positive, +3.34.

But wait, hope was not lost. My defenders, the Jacksonville LARP chapter, er, Jaguars, were facing a Pittsburgh Steeler team that was ready for a redemption victory. This is the mighty yellow curtain, the steel towel, a town of well-tanned, well-toned people with no folding chairs on their front lawns. PITT. The mighty Pittsburgh Steelers would show Jacksonville what it’s like be, OH GODAMMIT.

Steelers face palm

<Greco Roman statue with one nad face palm>

17 points, that’s all you could put up against the Jacksonville freaking Jaguars?

I………… am going to give up for a few days, perhaps get in some LARPing, then regroup for week 6.

Jaguars apologize for mascot making Ebola joke

Monday, October 6th, 2014

The Jaguars have apologized for their mascot using the Ebola epidemic to mock the Pittsburgh Steelers’ terrible towels during Sunday’s game between the two teams. During the fourth quarter of the game, “Jaxson de Ville” held up a handwritten sign that read “TOWELS CARRY EBOLA” while waving a yellow terrible towel.

Jacksonville Ebola Sign

Jaguars president Mark Lamping said the team had no prior knowledge of the sign and is handling the matter internally. “Improvisation and humor have both been key elements to the character of Jaxson de Ville, especially when he performs at home games,” Lamping said. “On Sunday, the person who has played Jaxson de Ville over the past 20 seasons made an extremely poor decision in that regard. He is very regretful for any harm he may have caused.”

Curtis Dvorak, who has been playing de Ville since 1996, mimicked the sentiment. “I’m really sorry. I was being silly and just meant to do anything I could to deter the people from Pittsburg from waving their towels around. I now realize that making a sign indicating the towels have Ebola was in bad taste. It won’t happen again. In that spirit, I’ve come up a new sign for the next time the Steelers come to town. You know, something that would truly confuse and disgust somebody from Pittsburgh:

People from Pittsburgh are fat

NFL to discipline Geno Smith after F-bomb usage

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

Rex Ryan and Geno Smith sat down Monday to discuss the postgame incident Sunday, when Smith cursed out a fan. “It’s a mistake and I don’t think it will happen again to Geno,” Ryan said. Smith is facing discipline from the NFL this week after the incident, for unsportsmanlike conduct by a first-time offender.

“I’m aware that my actions, that what I did is not right, so I am subject to a discipline”, Smith said. “Whatever the ramifications will be, I will accept them.”

Roger Goodell worked to close the matter quickly, making both Smith and the Jets organization aware of his decision in a statement released early Thursday. “Geno needs to represent the NFL better. The fans and especially children should not be exposed to such behavior. We hope Geno can learn from this experience and move forward quickly. So, on Friday, Geno Smith will be fined $1,500. And his left hand will be cut off.”

The statement continued “Now I know some of you might think this a bit harsh, but I assure you, both myself and our attorneys have based this decision on a thorough review of the collective bargaining agreement as well as some loopholes we found in Islamic law. Initially I wanted Geno Smith stoned to death, but the NFLPA took issue with that. A multi-game suspension was also considered, but both sides eventually agreed that the combination of severing his left hand in public, as well as a fine of $1,500, would teach Mr. Smith a valuable lesson.”

As if we needed more evidence that Roger Goodell is insane, there you go.

Roger Goodell Is Insane

On to this week’s negative fantasy football action.

Week 4 saw the Skin Flute Players go with Jacksonville on defense and the not at all aptly named “Titans” quarterback Charlie Lyndhurst (I think). So buckle in – next stop Negativazakhstan…..

Defense: Jacksonville’s defense was dependable and deplorable as always, collapsing like the champions they are and yielding a very solid -5.00 in their “performance” against San Diego. Philp Rivers and his 78 children and counting were all able to score with ease against this unit.

QB: You have got to be kidding me. Charlie – Jesus holding a clipboard – Whitehurst absolutely profaned my best efforts. While he had pick, 3 sacks, and lost a fumble, he also threw a touchdown for, I don’t know, moral reasons? The sun got in his eyes and he accidentally threw the ball to a Titan? Someone in Tennessee actually wore shirt under their denim coveralls and that confused him? Ugh.

+ 3.94

Whatever Charlie Whitehead. Sure I have no opponent this year and I can’t even get close to 0, but that just strengthens my resolve. I’m calling it (i.e., this won’t happen under any circumstances), as sure as Philip Rivers’ wife is either pregnant or soon to be pregnant or was pregnant a short time ago or just found out she’s pregnant even though she’s been pregnant for 6 months already, next week there will be a minus in front of my score.
