EIGHT: TNA “Knockouts”- Yes, we know pro wrestling can be perceived as trashy (we think it’s awesome), but we thought we’d explore the women of wrestling a little deeper. Previously here at the NFP, we’ve brought you the best of the WWE — along with Stacy Keibler — and although TNA doesn’t compete on many levels, it still has something to offer. Including Lacey Von Erich.
SEVEN: JaMarucs- According to reports, the Oakland Raiders would only take a modest salary cap hit if they decide to cut former first-round pick and former starting quarterback JaMarcus Russell. Now that we know this, my question is simple: Why wait?
SIX: Bottle incident- It turns out that Bolts CB Antonio Cromartie will not be charged for throwing a bottle of champagne at a man, according to reports, which said the bottle “slipped” out of the player’s hand. What? It’s bad enough that a bottle of champagne could be considered a “deadly weapon,” but why are Chargers players hanging out at clubs that turn into the set of “Road House” after dark?
FIVE: More TNA- Angelia Love, who, according to reports, was shipped back to Canada for visa reasons, is no longer a member of the TNA Knockouts. I read this as “breaking news” on the Internet while doing my research, but we still think she has a place here at the NFP.
FOUR: Rex Talk- It turns out that Rex Ryan didn’t like the idea of rookie QB Mark Sanchez going head-first to pick up a first down Thursday night — which resulted in a sprained PCL for the former USC star. Comments from Ryan that tell us that Sanchez needs to “grow up” could be perceived as off base, but not when you realize that Kellen Clemens is the Jets’ backup.
THREE: Safety Help- According to our own Brad Biggs, the Chicago Bears will make yet another change at free safety — their 19th move at the position in the last 92 games — when Kevin Payne replaces Daniel Manning. Now injured Bears LB Brian Urlacher will have more to critique come this Sunday.
TWO: Jerry speaks- Cowboys owner Jerry Jones made headlines again this week when he causally mentioned that a good showing in the playoffs would help head coach Wade Phillips keep his job. Translation: With all the big names out there on the coaching market, Phillips is out unless he brings home the Lombardi Trophy in February. Good luck against the Saints in January.
ONE: Former Champ- Christy Hemme, a former WWE champ and Playboy cover girl, has found herself in the world of TNA Wrestling, which has prompted NFP Fantasy expert Joe Fortenbaugh to remove the Kurt Angle Fathead from his bedroom wall and replace it with one of Christy. And we are hoping it’s this picture. By the way, wrestling is for 12-year-olds, Joe.
