Browns’ Damarious Randall: NBA Finals jersey promise ‘obviously’ a joke

eagles_127Browns safety Damarious Randall underestimated two things: the power of social media and passion of Cleveland fans.

Randall, who came to the Browns in a March trade from Green Bay, said he couldn’t track the number of re-tweets because his phone locked up when he tried to access his Twitter account.

I definitely didn’t think it would go as viral as it did, the 25-year-old said. I definitely didn’t think the Cleveland fan base would go this crazy about it. Obviously, it was a joke, but just to know how passionate this fan base is, I mean, it’s just really encouraging.

Randall wouldn’t say he planned to pay off his promise if the Cavs win.

One coach feared a plausible scenario where some players stay in the locker room during the anthem to avoid the team getting fined, some players protest on the field not caring about the fines and other players do neither. Teams could have three different groups of players doing three different things.

What’s clear is the NFL created myriad problems with something that was supposed to be a resolution.

If a player has, say, a $20 million offer from the Titans and a $15 million one from the Giants, the difference is so significant that the player likely is going to Tennessee.

What happens, though, if the offer is close, as former NFL player Geoff Schwartz asked on Twitter?

So with individual teams making their own anthem policies and I’ll assume fine schedule, w/some being the Jets (kneel away) and some being the Cowboys (don’t kneel ever)… if in the long run this will effect free agency decisions by top players.

Chargers tight end Hunter Henry expected to miss season with torn ACL

Chargers tight end Hunter Henry is expected to miss the 2018 season with a torn ACL, the team announced Tuesday.

The 23-year-old has been a dangerous red-zone target for the Charges throughout his two-year career. He hauled in eight touchdown passes and registered 478 receiving yards as a rookie in 2016. Henry was originally selected by the Chargers in the second round of the draft that season.

The NHL’s statement noted that the ruling “does not directly impact the League or any of our Clubs in the short term.”

In a statement, the NCAA said it is still reviewing the decision “to understand the overall implications to college sports (and) we will adjust sports wagering and championship policies to align with the direction from the court.”

The NFL still has to walk the tightrope of protecting all those interests, navigating differing state decisions about sports betting, and its principles (“long-standing and unwavering commitment to protecting the integrity of our game”) re-stated in its response to the Supreme Court ruling.

The idea that they will, in their words, “call on Congress again, this time to enact a core regulatory framework” for sports betting builds intrigue for yet another league appearanceby commissioner Roger Goodell or another high-ranking officialbefore lawmakers who know how often the NFL has been exposed in similar situations previously. Everything the league has said to Congress about concussions, for example.

So, expecting Congress to take the NFL’s side on reinforcing their contradictory views on betting, in the face of a Supreme Court ruling, might not yield much. It will only lengthen the league’s journey to accepting and capitalizing on America’s love of its sport and of betting. It was already part of the way there, but the entire trip will take a while.
