So is Cora going to get 5 years or a lifetime ban?

Wish Goodell would do the same to the Pats for repeated cheating. Ban Belichick for 1 year and forfeit their 1st round pick (again). Cheating fucks.
Chuck Pagano's defensive rankings in 6 years with Indy: 26th, 20th, 11th, 26th, 30th, and 30th.

If he had the first time around, it would have sent the right message.

It’s funny to me how things like that work out in football.

Everybody loses their shit over deflate gate and it makes the news and all that.

But then looking at historical penalty data reveals what appears to be a total bias in favor of the Packers and nothing is said.

this stuff is now getting weirder and weirder

not content with centerfield cameras and garbage can thumps, now there are multiple stories of some sort of robotic sensor reading the camera data and then buzzing the player in the batter's box through sensors taped to their chests

really?
