    I can't remember the context, but one of the sports radio guys around here said, disparagingly, "Jeter is the Eli Manning of baseball," and it stuck with me ever since.

    It's the perfect kind of bullshit hot take because it can be interpreted at least 4 different ways and is guaranteed to piss off segments of two different fan bases, even if they take it as a compliment.

    That is a body chiseled out of granite from stealing and eating 7 pounds of crab legs every day

    Dallas because of course it is.

    Weightlifting/training for strength does not necessarily translate into chiseled bodies

    Yeah, my understanding was that being chiseled is more of a product of dehydrating to cheat boxing weigh-ins, or for models & pro-bodybuilders to show off the goods. Normal training is how you get Last Jedi's shirtless Kylo Ren.

    Everything is awful. Every team is owned by a billionaire (whatever GB), and employs at least a couple of people that have done either questionable or even outright terrible shit.

    But there's also lots of good people too, and I'll root for them. Mahomes seem pretty cool, and I'm sure most of the Chiefs players are too. Same goes for the 49ers, I know that a lot of those guys give back to their communities, and I'll cheer them on.

    Everyone knows Hill and Bosa are trash, I don't want to waste my time on them.

    And people like Katie Sowers, 9'ers coach and lgbqta+ activist, deserve support as well.

    But at the same time, I can't fault anyone for stepping away from the sport because of the likes of guys like Hill and Bosa

    I’m not saying people are wrong to step away from the sport, but if they’re stepping away because of people like Bosa and Hill and not because of people like Jerry Jones, they’re falling for the exact narrative the rich and powerful want them to fall for.

    Visible definition comes from lower body fat percentage. Hollywood level definition comes from dehydration and steroids.

    As far as athletes train for performance and not aesthetics, you generally only get that 'ripped' look when bodyfat significantly hinders performance. In football, this is generally limited to positions that require speed, power, and quickness: Secondary, linebacker, running back* and wide receiver*. In other roles, it's beneficial to carry fat to absorb impacts.

    Damn I never heard this story. In '09 the Giants beat the Cowboys in the first game at the new cowboys stadium and Eli signed the wall of the locker room.

    This has still not happened on a major NFL team level publicly in court before to my knowledge. This is surprising

    Yeah the Church of Satan are adamantly anti-capitalism and anti-executives. They have a lot of pretty correct views, honestly.

    Agreed,

    I mean sure it can be surprising that this particular group of football people helped that particular group of religious leaders publicly, because you know of the saints as a football team in the business of football and the Catholic church in the business of religion.

    But if the story is instead that rich ass billionaire Catholic (who happened to own a football team) used parts of one of their organizations to help cover up Catholic abuses in the same city as that organization, it doesn't really seem surprising at all.
