You would think that the fight training on ‘Ali’ would have given Will Smith the ability to throw a punch, just proving not everyone is a natural athlete.
Mile High Stadium partially burnt down after Russ starting ‘cooking’, Jimmy G is still waiting by the phone, and the Bills are ready for business, as Wade & Ryan break down the last NFL news in their Slappy Happy podcast.
Make sure that you listen to it here, or on all of your fanciest podcast hosts.
Among some of the things that the boys discuss in this episode includes:
The Jaguars have announced that they will be playing home games at Wembley for the next 3 years.
Despite Tottenham building a fancy pants new stadium, the Jags have a loyalty to Club Wembley for the next few seasons.
Will the Jags be any good by then? How do spend so much money every year to continually disappoint?
The guys discuss the Jags, Wembley and how the stadium use to be a parking lot around it…literally.
Nantz and Romo run CBS.while Joe Buck and Troy hold down ESPN, but wait a minute…here comes Amazon.
Pretty crazy that we’re at the point in the NFL when ex-players turned commentators are making money that some players can only dream about.
In the UK, we don’t get as much of the banter due to streaming rights, but it seems like a heck of a lot of money!
Spoiler Alert! Wade and Ryan make NOWHERE near to that amount, nor will they in their entire lives.
Cam Newton would like to remind everyone that a) he is available to play and b) he is still alive.
What a dramatic drop from the former legend, as his legacy continues to dip everytime that he takes the field.
Colin K should be paying attention to the struggles of poor Cam.
Newton continues to train, but his age and poor decision making continue to increase with age.
The NFL is finally doing something to address the gaps in the Rooney Rule, by enacting some new rules to encourage the hiring of minority coaching staff.
All NFL teams will now be required to have at least one offensive coach of colour on their payroll. (Sorry Jon Gruden, you’re still considered too offensive.)
Historically, NFL teams lack offensive coaches of colour, so this should help as a first step to addressing the inequalities in the league.
It sadly doesn’t help the current plight of Brian Flores against the Miami Dolphins, which as taken another turn this week with talk that two other coaches could join in the lawsuit.
It should never have to come to coaches having to sue teams for discrimination, but if that’s the only way to fix it, then Flores On!
Ryan is totally stoked on the future of the Buffalo Bills, as they make some sweet offseason moves to get themselves into the final show in 2022.
First the Bills signed veteran D-Man Von Miller, who is fresh off a Super Bowl win with the LA Rams.
They signed a slew of other top players from OJ Howard to Duke Johnson, signalling a focus of shoring up the gaps that made them beatable in 2021.
Add to this a new stadium deal for the Bills, and the future is starting to look bright!
Unless of course they choke again and debt leverage themselves so far into the future, they can only communicate with the Green Bay Packers.
So we have 3 London games coming up this year!
What’s the plan?
We are working with some new partners to help promote and expand on our fun for the London NFL games.
Watch this space, as we will have some big news rolling though in the upcoming weeks!
Stay safe, and screw you COVID!
