Did President Obama go batcrap?

“I’m sure cheeseburgers will be on the menu,” said Thompson. “And these guys are never short on opinions. Jim Cornette is the greatest talker in the history of the business. People say that Bobby Heenan had the sharpest wit, and I don’t know that you can argue that, but when it comes to rants, I don’t know that anybody can hold a candle to Jim Cornette. Anyone who was disappointed that I wasn’t going to be there is going to get more than their money’s worth when Jim Cornette is there.”

Whitlock on how players and the NFL fell for Trump’s bait: “I include ownership, coaches, executives, Roger Goodell. He baited us, and they fell for it unbelievably. Oh my God, he says we shouldn’t kneel, so let’s everybody kneel together. Let’s show Donald Trump! … Everybody that Trump says something bad about should go absolutely batcrap then.

Robby Anderson, New York Jets, ankle, 1 p.m. ET: Anderson’s presence on the injury report was worthy of attention, but it was for only a day. After being limited Wednesday, Anderson was a full participant both Thursday and Friday, and his removal from the pregame injury report indicates he will be ready to play against the Falcons.

The scheme earned one victory, the organization’s first in NASCAR, in the MENCS event at North Carolina Motor Speedway (Rockingham) on Oct. 22, 1989. The scheme, originally sponsored by Stroh Light, ran in the MENCS during the 1988 and 1989 seasons. During that time period, the Roush Fenway Ford earned one win, 17 top-fives, 28 top-10s and led 602 laps in 58 total starts.

Is Fromm who Gardner told us he was? Because he just threw a horribly thrown ball to start the second half, and Duke Dawson just picked it off. Ugh, weird stuff always happens at the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party.

How are TCU quarterback Kenny Hill and his Horned Frogs going to turn it around … never mind, KaVontae Turpin just ran past everyone for a 94-yard kickoff return for a touchdown on the opening kickoff of the second half.

On the day Elliott filed his appeal, Jones declined to comment.

The league wasn’t happy with Elliott’s plan to discredit his accuser in his appeal or the NFLPA’s role in it. While the record shows that the woman was dishonest at times, shifting blame to a victim is “shameful,” in the words of NFL Executive Vice President of Communications Joe Lockhart.

“I don’t have anything to say about any of the appeal or anything about that issue, today,” Jones said via the team’s website. “But certainly I’ll be visiting with you guys about it in the future. Right now, today, is just not the time for me to talk about it.”

Elliott finally spoke to the media after his injunction was granted and his Cowboys beat the New York Giants in the team’s season opener. He said the injunction is a relief.

Robby Anderson, WR. New York Jets: He set a new career high with 22.5 PPR fantasy points, catching all six of his targets in the process. Anderson was started in 16.3 percent of ESPN leagues, his highest rate in any of his 24 career games. With matchups against the Buffalo Bills and Tampa Bay Buccaneers the next two weeks, Anderson could have upcoming WR3 value.

After breaking onto the NFL scene with six touchdowns during his first three games, Kareem Hunt (3.5 OTD) has failed to find the end zone even once during his past five outings. Despite the scoring drought, Hunt’s OTD is incredibly still well below his touchdown total. Hunt has carried the ball only three times inside the opponent’s 5-yard line and has been targeted twice while inside the opponent’s 15-yard line.

The last year of completely shameless tanking. Back in September, the NBA’s Board of Governors voted to tweak the draft lottery odds so that the three worst teams would have the same chance to receive the top pick in the draft. In other words, the league was trying to cut down on teams resting players and playing marginal talents in hopes of accumulating losses in a race to the absolute bottom.
