What if they are referring to minutia about that 48 lane bowling center on Appleton, WI's northeast side? 

(Appleton's Super Bowl predates the NFL's version by about four years and, under a very basic tenet of USA federal trademark law, can keep right on using that name.)

That sounds like that Burger King in Mattoon, Illinois that is totally unrelated to the Florida chain. That also explains why there are no locations of the Florida chain within 20 miles of Mattoon.

The 'keep back' radius from their 1968 settlement is 30 miles/50 km.  The family restaurant in Mattoon recently struck a deal with the chain to allow a franchised chain location to be opened at I-70/IL 130 (interchange 119) in Greenup, IL, which is at the very edge of that radius and a location that is completely inconsequential to them.

There's a good chance that the playoffs will be changed in 2020, and the regular season expanded in 2021. The NFL doesn't get very many things right when it comes to logistics, but it nailed the 16 game regular season (and its scheduling format), and the 6 team/conference playoffs. This is a classic example of fixing something that is not broken. Come on, NFL.

I like the premise of expanding the playoffs, but not the premise of the #7 seed potentially ousting the #2 seed.
The only thing worse than what happened to the Ravens this year, would be going 14-2, getting no bye, and losing in the wild card round.

It would be cool to see a #3 or #4 seed - or even a #5 seed!! - host the divisional round. This year, for example, say the #2 Packers lost to the #7 Rams in the wild card (very possible). #3 Saints and #4 Eagles also lost, so the #5 Seahawks would be hosting the divisional round!

I figured why not?
With all the narratives surrounding the season, it may well end up being a fairly lengthy sub-topic.
Also, it's specific to the NFL, for those of us that don't care about the other leagues.  ;-)

As the events of the past few weeks have unfolded, I am now genuinely curious about whether an NFL team is likely to sign Colin Kaepernick this season, and if so, which team would it be?

(I'm hoping that we, the forum users, can be trusted with a chance to have this discussion if we keep it civil and sports-related, so please don't squander it or get this thread locked.)

I'm surprised no one had signed him by now even with his history. A lot of teams have had far worse backups on hand and could have used the veteran presence. They were probably concerned with him being an "instigator." On the other hand, picking him up now only proves that that's why a team was blackballing him before, so there's probably >50% chance he stays unemployed.

I don't know why sports leagues would fear political reaction. It might cause a media storm at the outset, but long term, large numbers of people don't stop watching sports for political reasons. I know a lot of very liberal people who never even thought about giving up their Cubs season tickets when the family of Trump's campaign finance manager bought the team. There were never going to be large numbers of people turning on a team if they signed Kapernick.

I think teams worried about the "distraction" of the political reaction his signing would bring.  I mean, did you see what happened when Trump called out the NFL?

The general view on kneeling and the like has drastically shifted recently. Drew Brees got ripped for saying something that would have been the consensus two years ago. There's no reason for him not to at least be on a roster, though it'll be tough for him to make much of an impact after two seasons away from football.

That's a good point, but I guess I'm not sure anything is gained by not just owning up to it. Everyone knows that he was blackballed anyways at this point. And the NFL has walked back on other aspects of their 2017 stance, so this seems like the right time for a team to just do it if they're on the fence.

I can think of at least a dozen or so teams where he would be a major improvement as backup, even despite his years off. I wouldn't even be mad if the Bills signed him, although it wouldn't have really make any sense to pick up Jake Fromm in the draft if that was in the cards.


I think teams worried about the "distraction" of the political reaction his signing would bring. I mean, did you see what happened when Trump called out the NFL?

Ahem. I mean, I agree - although when you say "teams", it's really the owners that we're talking about. Clearly most of the owners tend to align more with Trump than not, while the majority of fans and players probably wouldn't really care that much. But please, this is exactly where threads like this get off the rails, so let's keep it to Kaepernick.
