A recent article states that Steve Kerr and Draymond Green don’t like each other, and almost got into a fist fight during the Western Conference Finals. Colin thinks the Warriors could have chemistry issues this year with four superstars on the team. If Green is the odd man out, Colin predicts chemistry could be a problem for the latest super team.
“Who’s taking the shot on Golden State? Who’s taking that shot? Who on that movie set gets the closing scene?”
Raiders’ owner Mark Davis was railing against Oakland yesterday for not stepping up to keep the team in the East Bay. All signs point to the Raiders leaving for Las Vegas. Colin says that it’s easier to get things done in Vegas than overtaxed California because they can tax tourism by adding small usage taxes on hotel rooms, which would net around $2 million a day. Portland, Oregon has 7,000 hotel rooms, which is equal to the amount of rooms at the Bellagio.
A replay on a home plate call from last night’s Cubs/Dodgers has made Colin question the shift to make more plays reviewable. Society is inclined to think more is better, with replay it’s not. Colin wants an umbrella approach. Make every call in the last two minutes of an NFL game, and anything in the last two innings of baseball. Less is more.
“Everybody wants more replay. And I am saying less replay. Only when it counts.”
Colin was ahead of the curve on the undefeated Vikings, but he thinks they should be on upset alert against the Eagles this week. The Eagles are getting 2.5 points. Colin still loves the Vikings long term prospects, but explains why Minnesota should watch out this week.
Colin isn’t buying that Dez Bryant cut his hand while slicing carrots. Anyone who buys this story is a moron.
