    Excellent idea Bengals. I should have thought of this. -PS


    Just watched the series premiere of Last Resort, which I know many here are interested in.

    Literally the best premiere I've seen in years. You can watch it on Hulu here:

      I'll have to check out Last Resort when I get home. I really enjoyed Revolution. Also the season premier of Bones is tonight. I can't wait.

      I also want to apologize to all if I forget to set my FF team or do my pickem for the next couple of weeks. My daughter was born Friday and as most of you know that can be a little time consuming.

      Revolution was great. How can you go wrong with the director of Iron Man and J.J. Abrams?

      Did anybody else watch the ending of the BYU/Utah game Saturday? Craziest ending to a football game I've ever seen. Fans had to rush the field 3 times.

      Adam Schefter reported that in the NFLs meeting with Vilma today, they showed him a signed affidavit from Gregg Williams stating that Vilma offered $10,000 to knock Favre out of the game.

      Yep Williams outed vilma. Suspensions should stay in place.

      I'm thinking of doing a new semi-regular article tentatively titled "Yay or Nay". In it, I would take an argument and argue both the pros and cons, then leave it to the FP readers to vote on it. Due to other commitments, I'm not sure how often I would do them, but ideally every couple of weeks at least. I could also post the link on Twitter to try and get new users to come and vote. What do you guys think? Yay or Nay?

      Thanks buddy! I appreciate it. Had an awesome time after the happiest day of my life so far. Next up is the day Tubbs had, hopefully soon! I'm not getting any younger.

      Now on to this limited use of the site nonsense.. I could deal with it for the 30 minutes or so I had free in punta cana per day. Now that I'm home and have more time, this sucks. Gator whatever needs to get its stuff in order, and in short order. I need some forum time, Dammit!!! Plenty of stuff we would all love to discuss I'm sure...

      bounty case just getting ugly now. Yesterday NFL presents Vilma evidence that DC Gregg Williams witnessed Vilma offering bounty for hit on Brett Favre.

      Vilma takes to twitter saying Williams was forced to lie.


      Now, on Mike & Mike, Vilma's lawyer throwing Gregg Williams under the bus saying "we have evidence Williams ran a bounty system in Washington." Though I'm not exactly sure how that helps their case, lol. It's also not exactly new information.


      Just an ugly mess of guilty people turning on each other.
