Well NFL fans, this is the last month until March 2023 that we will have ZERO NFL action. That means the NFL is only a few weeks away!
Getting excited yet?
To kick off all that is July, we offer up some til bits of NFL-July news to get you through the weekend.
Among some of the things we are paying attention to this week.
Tickets have already gone on sale for the London games, and given the frustration we have seen and heard online, most of the tickets seemed to have already been scooped up.
The Tottenham games have gone fast, nit not to worry-there always seem to be a stream of tickets that come out and become available to fans who are regular season ticket holders.
New season ticket holders got a chance to snag tickets on June 30th, while anyone looking to grab single tickets for Tottenham stadium will have to wait until Tuesday July 26th.
We will let you know about tickets as we hear about them, and remember to not buy tickets from scalpers, or you could be in for a nightmare.
The drama in Ohio continues to thunder on, as the wet spots of Watson’s legacy continue to seep through onto the massage table.
With more accusations (and dismissals) the headaches for the Browns should be over soon-as it looks like the NFL is targeting Watson to miss the whole season.
This could be a real pain in the butt for the Browns, who have pissed off Baker Mayfield to an almighty ‘Karen’ status.
Remember a few years ago when Cleveland was touted as one of the top faves in the AFC? Oh how the mighty have been rubbed and tugged down.
All NFL players (& other athletes) must love July 1st-aka Bobby Bonilla Day.
If you’re not aware, MLB player Bobby Bonilla and his savvy agent signed a deal to pay off the $5.9 million owed to Bonilla in instalments tagged with interest.
The NY Mets had wanted him to retire, but he said ‘no dice-pay me bitches.’
Despite only owing Bobby close to $6 million, the Mets have now paid Bonilla $14.3m, with another $15.5m owed over 15 more years.
In the end Bonilla will rake in close to $30m since 2000.
Happy July indeed!
Sad news from the world of the NFL, as former Colts & Ravens player Tony Siragusa aka ‘The Goose’ died at the age of 55.
Siragusa was not only a big personality on the field, but off as well-participating in many NFL sideline antics for TV, as well as hosting some notable TV series as well.
Big T also ‘made it’, when he appeared as Frank Cortese on the HBO series ‘The Sopranos.’
More sad news from Baltimore, as another Raven is to be seen nevermore.
Ravens OLB Jaylon Ferguson died of an accidental drug overdose.
‘Sack Daddy’ as he was known in college fell victim to the scary, and increasingly tragic fentanyl/cocaine overdose.
Experts are warning for a onslaught on fentanyl deaths in the future, as most cocaine on the west coast of America is thought to contain some traces of the drug.
Sadly, these kind of horrific deaths are going to become more popular with the inclusion of this drug in the mix.
Ferguson was only 26 ,and leaves behind 3 kids.
Rapper/ Actor/ Advocate-Ice Cube is partnering with the NFL to promote and develop more initiatives for the NFL to invest in black owned businesses across America.
NFL VP of Operations head Troy Vincent has been working with the Cube to help invest NFL funding into local and national business of colour that could use a step up.
About damn time.
