Raiders fans should be excited about the move to Vegas
Oakland Raiders fans are mourning the loss of their team this morning, but Colin says not to worry. First, the Raiders have already moved from Oakland to L.A. and back, so it’s not like they haven’t moved before.
Fans of the Raiders are fans of the Silver and Black, not Oakland, and they should be excited to finally have a city that will be an equal partner and offer a variety of benefits that Oakland never provided. The Raiders history is in Oakland, their future is in Vegas.
“This team’s gonna make a lot more money and be able to over-spend. I know there’s a salary cap, but you can still guarantee a lot of money that doesn’t count toward your salary cap. That’s all you should care about.”
Even given their struggles, no on eis stopping the Cavs in the East
The Cavs and LeBron James are struggling down the stretch, and just dropped to second place in the East after an ugly 29-point loss to the Spurs last night. The headlines this morning are proclaiming that the Cavs are in trouble, but Colin disagrees.
Today, he said that regardless of Cleveland’s struggles, they’ll still breeze through the Eastern Conference playoffs into the Finals, even if they end up as the two seed. LeBron already won a title as a two-seed with the Heat in 2012 with the Heat.
“He’s won a championship as a two-seed. It doesn’t matter.”
If Tom Brady is playing for 7 more years, it’s time for Jimmy Garoppolo to get out
Patriots owner Robert Kraft recently said that Tom Brady told him he wants to play for 6 or 7 more years. If this is the case, Colin thinks it’s time for Jimmy Garoppolo to get out of New England.
Colin thinks that sometimes it makes sense to wait in the wings as the heir apparent, but sometimes if you wait to long, you never get the shot. If Brady is going to be around for the next half decade, it’s time for Jimmy G to figure out a way to get out out of town.
“Jimmy Garoppolo has become the New England Patriots’ 2-iron. He’s in the bag, but they never use it.”
