This is pretty fun stuff. Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch teamed up with backup quarterback — and real life cousin — Josh Johnson to make this video to reveal the Raiders’ upcoming 2018 schedule.
Both guys’ reactions to some of the games on 2018 slate are pretty hilarious. But, what was most comical here is what Lynch had to say about new head coach Jon Gruden.
“I think Gruden must have cut some side deals. Ya feel me? We’ve got a lot of prime-time games, Lynch jokingly said.”
A class-action lawsuit has been filed against the Jets, claiming the indisputable: The Jets, by now selling per-game tickets to sit among those previously forced to buy PSLs, have made those PSLs, purchased for thousands of dollars beyond the cost of per-game tickets, virtually worthless.
The purchasers — the most financially devoted Jets fans — became baited-and-switched suckers.
The suit does not, as far as I know, yet include Roger Goodell as a defendant. But, given his bogus public come-on claim that PSLs “are good investments,” it should.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Hawks have granted coach Mike Budenholzer permission to speak with the Phoenix Suns about their head-coaching vacancy. Budenholzer led the Hawks to the Eastern Conference finals in 2014-15, but the team declined every season since, missing the postseason altogether in 2017-18 to end a 10-season streak. Budenholzer, an Arizona native who has two years left on his contract, had been Atlanta’s president of basketball operations until he relinquished front office control with the arrival of new GM Travis Schlenk in the spring of 2017.
Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer has been meeting with Phoenix Suns management and ownership on Monday and Tuesday, and a sense is expected to emerge soon whether there is a pathway to Budenholzer becoming the Suns’ next head coach, league sources tell ESPN.
Clifford, who took a medical leave of absence earlier this season, had been with Charlotte since their final season as the Bobcats. But back-to-back seasons finishing 10 games below .500 marked the end of his tenure with the franchise. Newly hired GM Mitch Kupchak will now lead the search for a coach who can lead the Hornets to their first playoff series win since 2002.
