I'd like to know more about how Steve Fisher figured into all that. He was usually portrayed in the media as a good guy. And sportcasters seemed pleased when he took several SDSU teams to the tournament after getting the boot from Michigan.

But even before the Fab Five, he had to deal with the championship team he inherited from Bill Frieder on short notice that included Rumeal Robinson, who turned out to be an unsavory character as a pro. And also Glen Rice, the future acknowledged paramour of Sarah Palin*.

I'd also like to learn more about the Fab Five's legendary introduction of the baggy shorts. Maybe have to read the Mitch Albom book about those guys.

* Palin: "One of the most important things that we have to engage is unleashing our domestic energy opportunities. It comes down to "drill, baby, drill..."

If the NBA had players like Tree Rollins, Laimbeer, and Ron Artest on current rosters, they'd probably have to scrap the season. Things would just be too unpredictable. And Danny Ainge's hand would have to be quarantined after Rollins bit down on it.

The concern is that the name is bound to be shortened to "The Tails", and it won't take long for that to conjure up a sea of references to congressional and executive naughty business, from Nan Britton to Marilyn Monroe to the firm of Daniels, McDougal, Carroll, Holvey and Leeds (acting on behalf of numerous others).

Oops, that reminds me, didn't mean to leave the judicial branch out of it.

From the Money Rules Above All Desk:

The coming Washington NFL team name change is partly being caused by a hefty projected loss of revenue if Daniel Snyder were to continue to refuse to change the name.

But also, the merchandise light bulb went on:

1) If they do a good job with the name change and uniform design, they are going to sell a ton of the new team gear.

2) They are also going to sell a ton of the old gear to die hard fans who liked things the way they were. One way or another, the old stuff will remain available for a long time to come.

What's the team going to wear for Throwback games?

Memo to Snyder: When renaming the team, you have got to do better than "Wizards". That name still feels like it was lifted from Marques Haynes and the Fabulous Magicians.

When I was in high school in the early 70's (in the US), just Canuck by itself with no adjective was seen as at least semi derogatory. It was jumbled in with all the other derogatory ethnic names that kicked around in common usage at the time. Mick, spic, etc. Damn near every kid I knew was one thing or another.

A friend of mine who had strong Polish heritage was stunned when the Canucks team name was announced as they joined the NHL. I remember him bellowing out: "For Christ's sake! What's the next team going to be called? The Warsaw Polacks?" That's the context I grew up with (being a Mick myself). The name was seen as a perplexing shock at the time, as there was a push going on to clean up all the ethnic name usage, regardless of how mean-spirited (or not) it was.

More recently, the vibe I get from some Canadians is: "Yeah, Canuck is a name. We can use it. You can't." So I'm content to leave it alone, except when it regards the hockey team.

And while Canada Day is being celebrated, a question that has popped into my mind once or twice:

With all the renaming of places and things and tearing down of statues going on here in the US, if the Washington NFL team gets renamed, would some people eventually demand that the Vancouver Canucks change their name?

Patriots Sign Cam Newton to 1-Year Deal

If Newton wants to wear #1, he'll have to play on special teams - so say fans of Tony Franklin and John Smith. In the pre-Belichick era, the Pats were a barefootin', snowblowin' bunch.

If Cam does well and they want to keep him on, they can pay more next year once the Brady dead cap hit is gone.

If he gets signed away by another team after 2020, the Pats will get one more of those juicy comp picks that have been a key part of their rostering strategy.

If he fails miserably, he'll still be better off than Albert Haynesworth.

I saw the story break on CNN online just when a nasty storm line was rolling through the area, so when my wife heard me say "Oh, Fuck!", she thought I was commenting on the severe weather.

She had no idea I was reacting to the news that Cam Newton had signed with the Patriots.

It's a Belichick-friendly one year deal, but still, who in the Foxborobunker thinks Newton is a good bet to buy into the team's approach, and where would he have suddenly gotten the required mental toughness?

Versatility memo to Cam at 6'5", 245 lbs.:

1) James Develin just retired.

2) During the 2020 bye week, you may be tucked in with the LB's and safeties watching Lamar Jackson game film. Any questions, call 1-800-DAVID-FULCHER.

3) Amazon is releasing a new children's book entitled "Steve's Daddy Has Three Tight Ends".

4) Josh McDaniels has been waiting a long time to run the Philly Philly. The previous QB ran like he'd stepped into two buckets of paint at the line of scrimmage.

Big Bird says: Look, Oscar - Everyone has three names!

It has been announced that Martha Firestone Ford is stepping down as principal owner of the Detroit Lions.

She is the widow of the late William Clay Ford.

Control of the team is being passed to her daughter Sheila Ford Hamp.

The Ford family purchased the Lions on Nov. 22, 1963, the day that John Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated - allegedly by Lee Harvey Oswald.

The team has no connection to Detroit native Francis Ford Coppola, who apparently got his middle name as a salute to the auto manufacturer's sponsorship of his family's music broadcasts.

Long suffering Lions fans will not gain a renewed sense of hope from this transition. According to former Great Lakes resident No Ford Mich, it's just another day at the orifice.

Dak Prescott Will Sign Franchise Tag Today

I remember too well the lean years at quarterback in Dallas between Aikman and Romo.

The thing I remember most is the lean years at head coach. I don't know if we're done with 'em yet.

I've always wondered how far the team might have gone if Parcells had a bit more fire still left in the belly and Quincy Carter had been able to stay clean and focused on playing his position.

Dak Prescott Will Sign Franchise Tag Today

Tag and trade time.

By moving to Vegas, the Raiders have suddenly gone from being one of the lowest valued franchises in the league to a revenue rich farce to be reckoned with.

They showed they were eager to overpay when they were in Oakland and couldn't afford to do it. If anyone in the Davis-Gruden-Mayock junta has a special feeling about Prescott and they can find a taker for Carr's contract, they'd be the first suckers I'd call.

If Dak had been under contract with New England, he would have become someone else's roster wrecker six months ago.

The Buccaneers new uniforms look good. They had their new QB help unveil the sets.

The thing I like best is that they made the size of the flag on the helmet just a bit smaller.

It's not as small as the original helmet flag logo that they introduced in the late 90's, but it's smaller than what they've had the last few years, which always looked oversized and reminded me of the funky fireworks shops up and down old Rt. 17 and 301 in Georgia and South Carolina back in the days before I-95 was completed.

It turns out that a fair percentage of Bucs fans were pushing for the team to go back to the old original creamsicle uniforms, but there was some disagreement about whether to bring back the Bucco Bruce logo.

I'm with you on the time traveling Howard. In our present situation, when the way life was just 8 months ago seems so different and removed, to go back decades is more intense than ever.

I came across game 7 of the 1981 Celtics Sixers Conference Final series and was spellbound amidst a flood of memories. I wasn't a resident of the Northeast at that point and wasn't sure who I wanted to win. I love how the game was played at that time and how it was staged and broadcast. Because there's no stupid music and sound effects blasting away in the background, you can hear a lot more of what's happening on the court.

The game I really want to watch is Game 7 of the 1987 Celtics-Pistons playoff series. In my memory, that was a surreal war, played with such intensity that it was remarkable there was a victor. I thought it was going to end up like the shootout scene in King of Hearts, with nothing but bodies lying under a pall of smoke.

NFL says it was wrong in handling of protests over racial injustice, encourages players to do so peacefully

Kaepernick might get a direct apology from the league at some point. He might get signed by a team. That may help matters to some degree. But unfortunately, this situation will never be a tidy, clean cut case of principles finally prevailing.

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn comments 4 days ago (one of three black coaches in the league, and a widely admired man who is extremely upset at recent events in Minneapolis and elsewhere):

"I thought it was a shame that Colin's message got lost because people kept bringing up patriotism. It was brave for him to do that."

"I know when you look at 32 quarterbacks in the National Football League, Colin could have been one of the 32. If not, he could have been a quality backup. For me being an African American head coach, this is tough."

In 2017 and 2018, the Chargers' backup QB's were Cardale Jones, Kellen Clemens, and Geno Smith. I'll leave it to others to find the "quality" in that group.

-----------------------------

November 2019, per USA Today:

"Quarterback Colin Kaepernick will be working out in Atlanta, GA on Saturday for a workout in front of multiple NFL team owners and coaches.

The Chargers told ESPN's Josina Anderson they were not definitely sure whether a team rep would attend Kaepernick's workout. The said the team might send a scout..."

Not knowing if they would be able to draft a top rank QB in 2020 but knowing at that point that Philip Rivers would most likely not be returning.

RIP Wes Unseld.

A beast in the paint. At 6' 9"

In an era when every team had a big man at center. Or more accurately, a bigger man at center.

Magic Johnson is 6' 9". What Magic did defensively playing center in relief of the injured Kareem in Game Six of the 1980 NBA Finals against the duo of Dawkins and Jones (both 6' 11") is reminiscent of what Unseld had to do every game.

Rest easy great man.

I am one of those survivors. The brave souls who agreed to try a free 30 day trial of Amazon Prime and then cancelled it on Day 29. And who then placed future orders as a non-Prime customer and chose the free shipping option.

When you do that, they move you into a new, special customer category and proceed to make your life a living, parcel-starved hell. The secret internal code name for this is UPS Gitmo.

They triage your future orders, and service you accordingly. If you clicked on a ring bound book of large print crossword puzzles for a family elder, they'll send that right along. That's a discretionary item. But the specialty pet supplements for your ailing dog? Those will take days, even weeks to ship, while your beloved companion suffers in their absence. The more urgent and necessary the items you order, the longer it will take to get them.

So carry on, fellow SpoFites. Go ahead and order a year's supply of aspirin and a defibrillator and see what happens. You'll start getting pop up Coumadin ads on your phone and the order delivery will be signed for by your neighbors while you're at the urgent care walk in facility.

The same people who put Trump in office run the NFL. No wonder it's not diverse

The headline may be ladling on a bit too much dressing at the salad bar, but that's another topic. It was designed to grab eyeballs and that it did.

They didn't need that headline to nail down the premise of the story. And the same thing happens in college basketball to a certain degree. Kentucky was never comfortable with Tubby Smith and Indiana was never comfortable with Mike Davis. Both went to title games; Tubby won his. It'll be interesting to see what Duke and UNC do when Coach K and Roy retire.

When the question is asked: "Why aren't more people of color working in top jobs for NFL owners?", I want to know how often the answer goes both ways. Do assistants take a HC job regardless of the situation if it's offered to them, or do they remain patient and wait for a good situation?

Because a lot of the folks that own football teams are characters that a lot of people would not want to work for. If ownership is the Pegula family, is there such a thing as a good situation? When Brian Flores took the Miami gig, how much thought did he give to the notion of working for Stephen Ross? Especially coming from the payroll of Bob Kraft, who is one of the better owners in the league regardless of his fondness for Mar A Lago and massage parlors. The same question applies to Anthony Lynn, working for the Spanos family.

Eric Bieniemy sure as hell can coach and Lord knows deserves a shot. He's currently in a good situation. He could do a lot worse in the ownership department working for Hunt. Is that part of the equation? If you're black and already busting your butt to overcome that professional obstacle, and you know you have to deal with the media and all the other stuff that goes with the HC job, then you look at prospective ownership and realize how much that factor matters if you're going to be able to succeed, do you size up the whole picture and realize that certain job offers are just never going to work, or do you take the opportunity and the money no matter what?

To boil it all down: Ron Rivera, WTF?
