  • The long-time team photographer for the Chiefs, Hank Young, has filed a federal lawsuit alleging the team has misused some of his photos. Young, for the record, no longer works for the Chiefs.
  • Somebody smacked the hell out of the fence in front of Donovan McNabb’s Washington-area home, knocking it down. The driver managed to get away, making it a hit-and-run accident. I feel there’s a joke in there somewhere, but I can’t seem to find it.
  • A nice little feature on the judge who will oversee that preliminary injunction hearing today – Susan Nelson.
  • Jaguars QB David Garrard knows that, at some point, Jacksonville is going to draft a QB. And he’s cool with that. Said Garrard: "I know I'm the starting quarterback for this team, so I'm going to continue to go out and prepare like that and work my butt off to make sure this team, this city wins a championship."

Hot Routes 4.6.11: Mason calls Goodell a joke

  • WR said on the radio that This was in response to Goodell's insistence for blood-testing for HGH. Oh boy.
    The truth is the truth. Goodell is a piece of garbage. But, the owners appear to be as well, so I guess he's a good fit.

Hot Routes 4.6.11: Mason calls Goodell a joke

No, Mason is the joke.  These players are overpaid spoiled athletes that would be shocked to see that the grass is not greener on the other side.  They make millions of dollars and it needs to be corrected.

I've been an NFL fan for years but it is no longer fun to watch players ask for more and more.  Money has ruined the game and drugs.

Bring on the testing Goodell.  Fix this sport.

Seriously!?  You have THIS many retards on the message boards nowadays?  Watch this:


'They make millions of dollar and it needs to be corrected'  -  The owners just need to pay minimum contracts.  Forget being fair or anything...just pay what you want to pay guys.  IF they don't want to work for that then too bad!  This is the Owners' FAULT RETARD!


I've been an NFL fan for years but it is no longer fun to watch players ask for more and more.  Money has ruined the game and drugs.
Then why do you watch?   How has money ruined the game when the last superbowl proved the NFL is the most popular it has ever been DESPITE Goodell EFFING up the league with these ridiculous fines and protections rules?  How has money ruined DRUGS?  Typos are one thing but grammatical misinterpreations = RETARD!


Bring on the testing Goodell.  Fix this sport. =  NINE BILLION DOLLARS in TV revenues means the sport is broken right?   And the owners and Goodell want to FIX IT?  RETARD!

The only smart thing you did shortbus was call yourself shortbus.  Or your some troll trying to get a rise out of folks.  If that's not the case this country is EFFED.

Hot Routes 4.6.11: Mason calls Goodell a joke

If someone was willing to give me $10 mill a year for running around on a field
You're right, the only thing an NFL player does is just spend 3 hours every Sunday playing a game.  There aren't grueling practices multiple times a week, countless hours spent in the gym doing extremely intensive physical workouts, or days and days of studying film.  Nope, they just get paid $10 million to run around on a field.

I think I can deal with the inconvenience of taking a drug test every few months.
How hard is it to read the story he linked to?  Derrick Mason is not against drug tests, he's against drug tests that require blood to be drawn.


they feel "that the employer has no right to test his employees and if he didn't want to deal with risk then he should not have started a business". I find that statement both comical and sad.
I find the fact that you don't know how to quote something just plain said, not even comical.

When you quote someone, you don't write something close to what they did, you write EXACTLY what they wrote.  You don't stupidly write something different that makes it seem like they were talking about something else.

If someone was willing to give me $10 mill a year for running around on a field then I think I can deal with the inconvenience of taking a drug test every few months. But then again, I'm not like most people who would rather not take a drug test and not get paid $10 million a year because they feel "that the employer has no right to test his employees and if he didn't want to deal with risk then he should not have started a business". I find that statement both comical and sad.

Hot Routes 4.6.11: Mason calls Goodell a joke

Hi, Im an nfl owner, im going to pay you a lot of money and I want to know im not buying tainted goods.  I mean, Home Depot drug tests its employees and they make $10/hr
Nobody's forcing an owner to pay any amount of money other than the league minimum, or even to own an NFL team.  Owners can want to know everything about a player, it doesn't mean they have a right to that information.  If you can't deal with the "risk" then don't buy an NFL team. 

I don't kow where you're getting this backwards idea that NFL players don't have the same amount of privacy rights that Home Depot employees do because they get paid more.

Of course, if you bothered to even read the damn link in the story Mason says he would be on board with a HGH testing in another form (even though he doesn't realize that's not possible), it's the procedure of blood testing he's opposed to.

Hot Routes 4.6.11: Mason calls Goodell a joke

I don't know, are you paying me several million dollars to perform a job for you?  If you are, knock yourself out.  If you're just curious, take a hike.
Good for you.  Just because you care so little about your privacy doesn't mean that others don't. 


Apples and oranges.
Not really.  Mason finds the blood tests intrusive.  The post I was responding to claimed that "if you're innocent then you've got nothing to hide", which aside from being completely false doesn't mean that you have to prove it to the world.

Being paid for a job doesn't give your employer free reign to look at whatever they want.

Good point, but how is that business any different than any other business?  Players are still employees.
