    $20 million raised. That's pretty awesome. Seems like Peyton had the upper hand here. Though Brady had probably the best single shots of the day between the two.

    A bit of a side note here. In my opinion, if Tony Ferguson would have fought Khabib back at UFC 209, Khabib would have destroyed him. Ferguson is good on his feet and can take however many punches Khabib lands, though as always, Khabib would have picked Ferguson apart and finished him on the ground via tapout. I would actually really like to see this fight now. If Khabib wouldn't have became ill just before that fight we'd know for sure.

    Great point. Of course we don't know but that's my thinking too. Khabib seems a cut above both of these fighters. But upsets happen all the time. Look forward to the eventual Gaethje v Khabib fight; just assuming it'll happen at some point.

    Piping in crowd noise and digitizing fans.. I don't think this is a good idea. I don't need to be tricked into thinking that things are back to normal. Show me reality. I never liked canned laughter on TV and I don't think I'll like this either. Hopefully not every network agrees with FOX. They can do other stuff like play music or show virtual watch parties. That would be WAY better.

    there will be no practice rounds or qualifiers for any May races, except the Coca-Cola 600

    I wonder how this is going to work. I can understand no practices, but no qualifiers? What are they planning to do here? I wonder why they cut that in particular out. And why give the Coca-Cola 600 this and none other?

    Seems like they are just trying to limit the time of the track as much as possible. So instead of qualifiers they are just going to go off of current rankings for positions. Not sure why they are doing that for all May races except the Coca-Cola 600, but I'm guessing its because the other races are added events to the schedule, while the CC600 is not.

    This race today should be really interesting to watch. They are calling it 'The Real Heroes 400'.

    Rank got 4 out of the top 5 taken. The only difference was the Lions took Jeff Okudah and the Giants surprisingly took tackle Andrew Thomas. A curious #4 pick imo. Seemed like they could have traded down a little and got an extra pick down the road and still got Thomas. But said the same thing about their curious QB pick last year and that has turned out a bit better than most expected.

    Good for Gronk. That is a cheap price tag to get him.. I guess the Patriots don't expect he will hold up long. Hope he proves them wrong.

    Any idea who the Patriots are going to use at QB next year? All the names I have heard floated now seem pretty lackluster.. wonder if they will try and trade up and draft someone.

    The entire sports world is shutdown. All except for NFL free agency at the moment. And that's a good thing especially for sports fans looking for a momentary escape from 24/7 news about corona.

    NFL teams are as busy as ever trading big name players, deploying franchise tags and signing huge deals for 2020 season and beyond. Here are all the biggest moves and story lines so far:

    -- Tom Brady leaves the Patriots. No word yet on where he will land but he isn't retiring and is expected to join either Tampa Bay or even more likely the Chargers on a short term deal.

    -- The Texans traded DeAndre Hopkins to the Cardinals in exchange for David Johnson and a second round pick. Some are calling this the worst trade in NFL history.

    -- Amari Cooper signs a 5-year, $100 million deal with the Cowboys. $60 million guaranteed.

    -- Former Cowboy players sign elsewhere: Jason Witten is now a Raider. Randall Cobb is now a Texan. And Byron Jones is now a Dolphin, and the highest paid CB in the league with a $82.5 million deal for 5 years, $57 million guaranteed.

    -- Cowboys franchised tagged Dak and signed Blake Jarwin to 3 year, $24.25 million deal

    -- Stefon Diggs gets traded to the Bills for a 1st, 5th and 6th round 2020 pick and a 4th round 2021 pick. Bills get Diggs and a 2020 7th in return.

    -- Kirk Cousins gets a two year $66 million extension with the Vikings.

    -- Ryan Tannehill signs a 4 year $118 deal with the Titans, $91 mil guaranteed

    -- Drew Brees re-signs with Saints. 2 years worth $50 mil, a team friendly bargain to keep him

    -- Panthers sign Teddy Bridgewater and move on from Cam Newton. Terms not yet announced though Teddy is expected to make at least $20 mil/year.

    -- Phillip Rivers signs 1 year deal with Colts worth $25 million

    -- Titans franchise tag Derrick Henry

    And even more to come... post big moves here. Or medium moves too, tons of those going down. Also thoughts on any of these trades, signings or franchise tag choices. Lots going in.

    PowerPlay Wrote: I've been trying to wrap my head around how exactly it will affect NBA hopefuls and what that looks like for the remainder of the season. Does this just put their season on hold, thus putting their chances of getting picked up on hold? This means everything will just go right back to normal once the season resumes. Or does this mean something else? I can't figure it out..

    So this won't put anything on hold for as I know, unless shutdowns last all the way through September and October. But assuming college sports resume by the end of the summer all it really means is breakout NBA hopefuls get less tape on the biggest stage to show NBA teams and recruiters what they can do.

    The NBA draft is supposed to be held on June 25th, 2020. Assuming they do what the NFL is doing it will still go on as scheduled. But likely in a much more quarantined kind of way. What shutting down the NCAA Tournament though mostly means is seniors in their last year of eligibility to play in the NCAA didn't get the national spotlight to showcase their talents to NBA scouts. And that sucks for them because the best chance for college players to make their case to be drafted is during the tournament. But its not the only chance they get. Now they just have to rely on NBA recruiters watching tape and paying attention to their play during the regular season.

    People were discussing the possibility of giving all college players another year of eligibility. But even that idea has unintended consequences, because it would mean high schoolers becoming freshman in college next season would maybe have to wait a whole other year to get to play. So it wouldn't be smart all things considered.
