Random quote about the game…………Astrologer Lauren Ash looks predicted that the game would bring a lot of turmoil to the field, stating that the “Scorpio Moon opposes Uranus,” on Feb. 12

Before the championship game everyone was talking up San Fran as the best defense in the league and now they’re talking up Philly as the best defense in the league. They sound really tough. Can we beat the leagues best defense?

I really haven’t seen anything to believe that Philly has the best defense in the league.

They’re not good against the run.

Their D backs are opportunistic but not elite.

They have at least one really good MLB. Edwards I belive is his name

Their dline is good but they don’t have anybody on the same level as Chris Jones. They rush 5 a lot. They stunt a lot on the line.

Really it comes down to Wiley and Orlando. Can they handle sweat and reddick? This game is worth 10s of millions of dollars for Orlando. It’s the difference between him getting 80 million guaranteed versus 30 million guaranteed.

Chiefs defensive end Frank Clark was asked who’s the biggest trash-talker on the team. His answer may surprise you. 
..
Clark told reporters that punter Tommy Townsend talks the most trash on the Chiefs. 
“The most trash? Tommy Townsend,” Clark said.
..
“My punter Tommy Townsend talk the most trash, I swear to y’all. If he say he don’t, I don’t want to call him a lying man, but Tommy Townsend talk trash, y’all.”
..
Hopefully, another player on the Chiefs can confirm that Townsend talks trash at an elite level.

THE JOYS OF DRANKING
..
Michael Irvin has been removed from Super Bowl coverage for the remainder of the week after a woman in Arizona complained about his conduct.
..
NFL Network executives informed him on Monday that he needed to change hotels. He says he was asked what he did the night before, and he told his bosses he came back to the hotel and went to his room. He was then informed that there is video of him speaking with a woman before that.
..
“And then they showed on camera I did talk to somebody. I talked to this girl for about a minute,” Irvin said. “They didn’t show [me the video]. They told me [that I was on video talking to her]. I don’t know what she looks like or anything. But that’s why they moved me. Because the girl said I said something to her in that minute we talked.”
..
Irvin said he had just gotten back from having drinks with former Cowboys safety Michael Brooks. He admitted that he is unsure of what was said during the brief conversation because he had been drinking.

Irvin better hope he doesn’t get FIRED and lose MILLIONS of dollars over — getting DRUNK!! THE JOYS OF DRANKING

Uh, the spending is in the trillions. how many trillionaires are running around? like I said, it sounds good, but its a drop the bucket. the real bucket is the middle class, cause that’s where all the money is. Also, the billionaires are the ones that employ the others. If you cut too deep, they aren’t going to lose their money, so they start laying people off. you see that happening now in the tech world.

taxing the rich to cover everything is a myth. you can take all their money and not even come close to balancing the budget.

Actually, I’m all for a straight tax – like a sales tax. That means every dime a rich person spends is taxed the same as anyone. illlegal immigrants – same. tourists – same. the only problem is that it would wipe out a whole industry of accountants and tax lawyers, so it would never pass. to me, that’s the fairest way of taxing people.

Reply to  pompano
02/08/2023 8:30 pm

stocks maybe not because everyone’s 401k is invested in it, but if a rich guy buys a mansion, a yacht, or a million dollar car, a percentage straight up goes to the government. if you have that money, you have to spend it. just charge everyone equally for it. I would exempt the essentials, like most states do with their sales tax.

pompano
Reply to  hoosierchief
02/08/2023 8:36 pm

FL only exempts parer goods at the grocery store. Yachts (Raymond Luxury aside) and private jets are not taxed at the same rate as a used car…again, not a solution, just a balance (the luxury yacht maint industry is not an economic driver)
