SportsFilter: The Sunday Huddle

Wild. Bautista cost the Jays the game with that leg grab.

Spent a week listening to Toronto media trying to justify that slide as a normal play and being astonished the rule was applied. Bautista put on quite the whine as well.

It is possible the next time he pulls that crap, and trust me he will, MLB loses a quality infielder for the season due to injury.

Don't know enough of Odor to know what reputation he has but certainly know what Bautista is all about. If Odor is indeed known for stirring the pot then the 2 of them working things out the way they did doesn't seem out of line. A much better solution than having the Jays or Rangers pitchers throw at the oppositions' heads or a runner who is out by 20 feet trying to injure a fielder.

Bottom line, Odor stood up for himself while Bautista hit and ran ... again.

Looks like the Jets might fill their biggest weakness this draft - a true scorer. Loads of young talent, looking forward to 2016/17.

With the management the Leafs assembled I'm hopeful that Matthews career doesn't get destroyed the same way that Hall and Nugent-Hopkins have.

And I hope Matthews is as skilled with the media as he is on the ice.

Tom Brady's 4-Game Suspension Reinstated for DeflateGate

You are forwarding that the noble gas law leads to only one possible conclusion: that there was no underinflation. That's not true.

Tom Brady's 4-Game Suspension Reinstated for DeflateGate

all the science has pointed at the opposite

Not true.

If you had stated "The Patriot's presentation of their interpretation of science convinced some of us the opposite was true", then yes.

I will be surprised if the commissioner's authority becomes a major issue in the next CBA

So ... what governs Goodell's term as the commissioner?

Is it possible the owners turf him before the next CBA?
I mean, we're all hung up on what Brady and the Patriots did or did not, but the handling of other more important issues has been equally flawed.

Tom Brady's 4-Game Suspension Reinstated for DeflateGate

it would be a good idea for Goodell to offer to cut the suspension in half in exchange for Brady and Kraft's agreement to support that suspension and let the court fight end

Tom Brady's 4-Game Suspension Reinstated for DeflateGate

Patriots go 3-1 in those games with or without Brady and also win the division again. If one was of the opinion that the Patriots will only go as far as Brady will take them (which I am not) then having him fresher at the end of the season for a playoff run sounds appealing. And if the Patriots actually have meaningful regular season games after December 1 they would need to be much sharper going into the playoffs.
