The answer is obviously no. That’s not what’s interesting. What’s interesting is that ESPN made this a cover story and I’ve seen similar articles in 3 other places. It’s intetesting that this is the current talking point.

Then you should have said that in the first place.

I quoted the headline, and left it up to most people to draw their own deductions because most people on this site are adults. You aren't, so I'm not concerned. Which is why I have you on ignore and almost never read what you write, but I made the mistake of clicking "show" on this thread. I'll be careful not to let that happen again anytime soon.

I can't tell if you're a perpetual troll or just confirming a caricature.

This applies to yourself with equal force.

Prof, stop with the passive aggression and write a few syllables of summary. Your habit annoys everyone on here.

Now that Oliver has said this you have to wonder when he start sitting games out. Of course there is already a claque of writers and broadcasters (the ones eager to set fire to the beat that feeds them) goading him into doing just that.

If he's injured, he should sit to protect himself...and while that may happen (Fournette and Clowney had underwhelming, injury-plagued final seasons) I'd assume he'll play otherwise.
