Imagine the judge is allowing Britt Reid to drive again. What a grotesque insult.
Its as insulting as him pleading not guilty. Yeah I get there is legal shit that come into play that his lawyer is feeding him and of course he has lots of money, but its hard to believe.

The Reid's genuinely seem to be a fucked up Family. Both Andy and his wife have not been good parents by all accounts. I'd love to think Britt Reid would have the sense to not drive while the 5-year-old little girl he hit is suffering from brain damage, but I have my doubts....

We're going to be reading a lot more about this within a couple of years. It's coming...

Sad to see. Michigan allowed it this year and it has made the local sports radio almost impossible to listen to. Every ad is for betting and half the convo is now about betting and appears to be paid for by the betting sites.

My former BIL lost everything due to a gambling problem. Everything.

According to Schefty, Rodgers is not showing up for mini-camp this week. It is looking more and more like he is going to sit out rather than play for the Packers which is an unbelievable turn of events in the NFC given Brees just retired. I doubt the Packers move him until next off-season when the cap hit will be more than manageable and they will get a better draft haul from a needy team who desperately wants Rodgers. It will be a real shame if Rodgers really does sit out as he is such a talent but it seems really likely now which really sets things up perfectly for Tampa in that conference and also for the Lions, Bears and Vikings as any one of those teams can now win the North although that being said, GB still has the best roster. It just depends if Love is ready or not. Will be fun finding out. LOL

There is no way Rodgers sits out this season. Someone will blink. It may be that a different team decides to make GB an offer they can't refuse.

There is no way he sits out all year.

It won't be Rodgers blinking. He is pretty firm that he is never coming back to play for GB. I think the Packers are pretty dug in to. It makes no sense to trade him this year given the draft picks won't be received until next year. Plus, they don't know the draft order either. I mean if Denver wins 9 or 10 games this year, their draft position will be bottom third of the first round vs another team who finishes with 2 wins and wants Rodgers. The cap hit is enormous too compared to what it would be if they waited until March.

The pressure will mount on the team exponentially to do what it takes to resolve via trade or other. Can you imagine the press coverage if he is sitting week in and week out this season? The fan base will make them do something.

Yeah, I cannot imagine why GB would blow up their salary cap so Rodgers can leave. They offered him a huge contract, if he still wants to leave, its not up to them to let him have his way and destroy themselves by trading him.

I know. It will be bonkers. But I can see it happening. Remember the fans care about the team first and the base is divided right now. It seems they know Rodgers wants out so many of them are already moving on to Love.

What if Love is good though and they keep winning? LOL. The Packers have been kind of charmed when it comes to finding franchise QBs.

They have a young team. They have a solid defense and young up and coming WRs... Rodgers in Denver would be a problem.
I do not think they are as good as GB, young does not always mean good, they have a lot of holes especially on defense. GB is way more of a set team, not to mention they are in the chiefs division. I mean I get what you are saying, but Rodgers issues go beyond what team he is on, so I do not think the pats defense and Bill would have too much trouble slowing him down. Rodgers might even be better to go to the Raiders.

We'll have to agree to disagree.

Well I mean I do not really disagree as much as I am not as high on what is denver as you. I just don't think he would get better going to a worse team. They would be more competitive obviously but not sure it would put them over the top.
