    I believe a reason why so many blacks are kissing off the season is how COVID19 attacks and kills blacks. All the blacks at my work never slip. Always with the face masks and hand sanitizer. I try, but admittedly I forget to mask up. One thing I do is constantly wash my hands and sanitize in my office when I think about it.

    This is surprising, the Raiders OC said Henry Ruggs will be the starting slot receiver, not sure what this means for Hunter Renfrow. I thought it would be Ruggs and Tyrell Williams on the outside with Renfrow in the slot. I guess Renfrow’s role will be reduced this year and maybe they want rookie Bryan Edwards on the outside instead. Either way this doesn’t seem to be good news for Renfrow.

    Maybe the Raiders haven't pigeon holed Renfrow to the slot for life, It'd actually be nice to see him lining up outside a bit. Definitely something to keep an eye on.

    I'll be surprised if Renfrow doesn't end up getting a lot of targets this season. He's too talented and fits too well with Derek Carr's style. Ruggs will probably be used all over the field as with his speed he's a potential home run hitter on both short and long passes.

    Yeah I hope both of you are right. It wouldn’t make sense to keep Ruggs in the slot every play and it also wouldn’t make sense to keep Renfrow off the field or limit him to 4 WR sets. I think the Raiders are smart enough to make it work correctly, let’s hope for a big season from Renfrow!

    Be interesting to see how the speedster Ruggs holds up. Slight frame odds are he'll be more John Ross than Tyreke..

    Tre'Davious White from Bills is latest Afflete to skip this season. It's just a game(his job). He's worried about his family, his girls grandfather (70-80s) died from Corona..

    That's all fine and dandy but a fit young Afflete like him should be fine. I find it comical the cuck owners have to pay these guys while they sit out and milk the system over a scamdemic with 99.5% survival rate. But that's just me .

    I believe he was considering opting out but decided to play. He probably would’ve been one of the biggest names to opt out if he did.

    Ah gotcha.

    I've noticed in NCAA Purdue's Rondale Moore is a well known name that is foregoing this season so is some DE from Florida all draft gurus had high rating on.

    Draftdiamonds even started tracking those NFL Player's that have opted out.

    It seems like the opt outs are disproportionately non-Whites so hopefully this can give some additional opportunities to some well deserving “underachievers”.

    It’s not surprising blacks are frightened of a virus that is virtually harmless for anyone under the age of 60 and rarely deadly for anyone under 80. As we’ve discussed on this site before, blacks are highly superstitious and also frightened of virtually anything they don’t understand (animals, wilderness, zombies / ghosts, etc). They’ve also been bamboozled by the media into believing that this virus is magically attacking blacks at higher rates (again fear of what they don’t understand).

    PS - one could argue the morbidly obese sumos are actually smart for sitting out. They would be a demographic that could die from the virus, though still unlikely for men under 35.

    I seriously hate giving affletes credit for just about anything. However, their handlers most likely recognize for the fringe NFL afflete that this could be a wasted year of eligibility. A lot of risk playing a season that might not even finish. On the other hand if this is the end of times they might as well go out with a bang playing football.

    I saw a news story on a man who "celebrated" his birthday in the hospital with Covid and he was the age of a veteran sumo and dropped 130 pounds, he claimed he was healthy until he caught the virus. The reporter never mentioned he was morbidly obese until the virus hit, but for the few deaths under 40 I have seen all have been guys built like this guy who looked Grimace before Covid got in his system.

    Yeah I remember talking to a black guy who quit his job at a rest home because he was afraid of "getting cancer germs from the wheelchairs."

    I'm not familiar with Greg Olson but he's now thrown Hunter Renfro under the bus for a second time this week, first by promoting Henry Ruggs over him and now Bryan Edwards:

    USA Today’s Marcus Mosher reports rookie Bryan Edwards could start at X receiver.

    Edwards is full-go at training camp after missing the pre-draft process. Raiders OC Greg Olson suggested he’s already passed Hunter Renfrow for a top-three role, and playing the X spot could put him ahead of Henry Ruggs or Tyrell Williams in two wide sets. The Raiders have made it clear they have plans for Edwards now that he’s healthy. The SEC all-timer is looking like a good bet to start Week 1.

    Caste Media already setting the tables for Renfrow to get screwed over. Just a month ago Carr's brother predicted a monster season for the 2nd year man after a stellar Rookie season and now two upsider rookies are already penciled above him..

    I'd like to think Mayock and Gruden are above this but we've seen it time and time again where our guy's get purged for upsiders..

    Well I myself think Hunter Renfrow will beat the odds again. He has been doubted his whole life like most white athletes in general. This kid is just too competetive. If the Raiders are stupid enough to bench or cut him then another team
    will jump on the chance to sign this very good receiver. Hunter Renfrow will not be denied. Too much talent. Even Wes Welker got screwed over by several teams before he found a home. I hope it doesn't happent to Renfrow. He deserves
    better. I'm going to remain optomistic that he gets alot of playing time for Gruden.

    Olson is just another retread career caste cuck coordinator that does his part to perpetuate the caste system. Olson is obviously blinded by his ingrained beliefs which is why he is doing his best to write off Renfrow. Let’s be honest - who the hell are Bryan Edwards and Tyrell Williams besides having the right color melanin according to Olson.

    If college football fall ball is nixed ( and that is looking more and more possible) the NFL will likely play games on Saturday to go along with Sunday, Monday and Thursday games. To put it another way they would have to be complete fools ( or MLB representatives) to pass up that opportunity.

    Makes perfect sense and would add to the TV revenue. See article below.

    Vikings LB Cameron Smith was diagnosed with a heart problem after his Covid test and will undergo open-heart surgery and miss the season. I hope he can come back and make the team next year, he was a very exciting college player.

    The Jags signed DE Josh Mauro - solid player and hopefully we see Mauro, Gostis and Bryan all on the d-line this year. Minshew is an exciting young QB - actually looking forward to seeing what they do this year.

    The 49ers are trying to sign Tavon Austin... so much for Trent Taylor’s breakout season.
