A few more player-friendly coaches won’t shift the prevailing wisdom of NFL owners overnight. Owners are old and rich, and those are hard people to sway.

A league that knows that it can have fun and engage its players as individuals along the way towards completing its very important business seems new and good. There is no turning back now — I believe that. — and though it hasn’t been yet, the top will be affected at some point.

The NFL doesn’t have to suck in all ways. Oh, the Jets, Browns, Jaguars, 49ers, Rams, and company will make sure there’s still putrid football to watch (I mean, look at this), but the assumption that players will stoop to the NFL’s stodgy, outmoded way of things forever, I think, is wrong. Yes, the NFL is big and powerful and making Scrooge McDuck money despite what the ratings say. It is also capable of flying into a soul-rattling panic, just like any of us when we’re confronted by something that has no fear presenting the shit we need to see.

“Just kind of your name getting dragged through the mud,” Elliott Cheap Liverpool Jerseys said when asked what the hardest part has been. “It’s been 14 months. Just kind of being associated with that, that’s tough.”

Rockets’ Patrick Beverley: Resting is ‘bulls—’ and ‘a disgrace to this league’

NBA coaches resting players is still a topic, and Patrick Beverley has some thoughts on it.

“I don’t believe in resting. I think that’s bulls—,” he said after Sunday’s game against the Thunder. “I think that’s a disgrace to this league. I think that fans deserve better. I could care less about coaches asking players to rest or not. It’s up to you to play or not, and if you don’t, you’re disrespecting the game. And I don’t believe in disrespecting the game, because there was a time where I wasn’t playing in the NBA and I was trying to get here. So me resting, I feel like, is disrespecting me, disrespecting the name on the front of the jersey and disrespecting the name on the back of the jersey.”
