WATCH: Nate Burleson says Blake Bortles is the NFL’s most slept on QB
WATCH: Nate Burleson says Blake Bortles is the NFL’s most slept on QB More Crazy right? The national media giving the Jacksonville Jaguars, and Blake Bortles some semblance of credibility. Should we buy lottery tickets this evening? Look, we get it. The Jaguars have been one of the most underachieving franchises of the last decade. But the team has built its way back to prominence the blue collar way through the NFL draft.
The stars are aligning for big gains in bitcoin, astrologers claim, and some investors are actually following that out-of-this-world advice.
When Chicago-based investor Marcus Thomas first heard about cryptocurrency in 2017, he was skeptical. I couldn’t understand how something digital could have any value like the dollar, gold or silver, he said.
But he has since invested more than $11,000 in cryptocurrencies — in part because astrologers said it was a good idea. People who track the zodiac say the movement of the planet Uranus — which represents revolution and change — from Aries into Taurus this week is a good sign for cryptocurrencies. Thomas and starry-eyed others say they’re moving money into crypto to get in on the potential action.
Check out the video above for our thoughts on that.
That’s kind of a weird explanation, frankly. The more accurate truth is that, in the aftermath of Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf refusing to stand for the anthem more than 20 years ago, the NBA swooped in and negotiated an agreement with the NBA Players Association to make standing mandatory. End of problem. Which is precisely what the NFL should have done.
But the NFL doesn’t enjoy the kind of relationship with the NFL Players Association that would be conducive to a quick and easy win-win outcome, and the league surely didn’t want to get squeezed into making a concession to players in order to make the problem go away in August 2016. As a result, the problem lingers. As does the NFL’s reluctance to negotiate the kind of conclusive resolution that would happen if the league and the union would agree that players will stand for the anthem. All because the NFL doesn’t want to give something up to get the outcome it so desperately needs.
Evgeny Kuznetsov was on the ice for Washington Capitals practice Friday, 36 hours after leaving Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Vegas Golden Knights clutching his left arm in pain.
Kuznetsov did not return to Wednesday night’s game, and coach Barry Trotz had no further update other than to say Washington’s leading scorer is day-to-day. Kuznetsov’s status for Game 3 Saturday night is still not clear.
