The Nati Boys (minus DB) are talking Bengals training camp this week as the NFL preseason is officially underway. We also discuss the MLB trade deadline, which passed earlier this week. While the Reds did make one move at the deadline, there were a few more that we expected to see, which inspired our fantasy draft of trades we’d most like to make.
Well, folks, we waited most of the summer for Adam Jones news and we finally have it. For those of you who haven’t seen the fight (view below), Adam Jones was in an altercation with an airport employee (Big Surprise). Before you comment, I understand according to authorities he was defending himself, but come on you’re Adam “PacMan” Jones, just walk away when someone gestures or yells towards you. I have a very hard time feeling bad for someone like Adam Jones who is so easily drawn into an altercation time after time year after year. His temper and inability to just walk away has not only brought him legal trouble/financial ramifications, but it has also cost the Bengals games. It should be obvious based on him still being a free agent, but I really hope the Bengals have finally moved from this clown.

Kirk Cousins just became the highest paid quarterback in the NFL, YOU LIKE THAT!?
Breakups are never easy, but they’re a fact of life. Not every relationship is perfect. Not every relationship can last forever. When you get dumped, it hurts. When you see your ex with someone else less than 24 hours later, it’s devastating. That’s what poor Papa John’s is finding out right now. As my good friend Mac pointed out Tuesday, the NFL has decided to part ways with Papa John’s as it’s official pizza sponsor. In a brutal move, the NFL announced a deal with Pizza Hut less than 24 hours after dropping Papa John’s. I bet Papa John hadn’t even gotten a chance to collect his toothbrush and phone charger from Roger Goodell’s apartment yet.
Well, it is official AJ McCarron has won his grievance case against the Bengals and this means he is officially a free agent as of March. This also means that the botched trade with the Browns, as if it wasn’t bad enough, will sting just a little bit more. Continue reading →
