While New Orleans Saints Bountygate Brews, Where Goes Brees?
Written by 

Brees-panthersWith New Orleans Saints Bountygate still raging on, what’s going on in the former really BIG controversy Drew Brees contract talks.

There have been all types of discussion as to whether Drew Brees would use the scandal to his advantage.  After all, it would be very difficult for New Orleans Saints fans, still blown away by these most recent NFL events to also deal with the prospects of losing the heart of the team over the past six years, Drew Brees.

 Quoting a team source, the Times Picayune regarding Mickey Loomis, said:  

"Mickey has not missed a beat on his GM duties and actually spent the majority of Friday strictly on the Brees deal," the source said. "The bounty stuff was not out of nowhere. We knew about this and have cooperated and been involved in helping the league for years. We understand the severity and ramifications, but (Owner Tom Benson) and Mickey are on the same page and moving forward."

Well, if they knew about this raging controversy for a while, certainly so did Brees and his agent.  Plus, it has been Drew Brees who has stated time and time again that he wants to be with the New Orleans Saints.

Another Times Picayune article indicates that there might not be any reason to worry in terms of Brees walking out the door or forcing a trade.

“Ultimately, the Saints’ contract offers to Brees will do the talking for them.

Loomis may have balked at the idea of making Brees the first $20 million-per-year player in NFL history. But there has been no indication that he and the Saints are “low-balling” Brees in negotiations.”

Let’s hope so.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
