Welcome back. How did you do with this week’s question?
If you answered the American Professional Football Association you are correct. The league was formed on August 20, 1920, by independent professional American football teams from Ohio, all of whom had previously played in the Ohio League or New York Pro Football League (NYPFL). It was renamed the National Football League in 1922. Of the 14 teams that played in the APFA/NFL’s inaugural season, the Chicago Cardinals, now known as the Arizona Cardinals, and the Decatur Staleys, now known as the Chicago Bears, are the only teams that remain in the league.

Can we pleas stop with all this talk of the New York Mets trading Jacob De Grom to the Yankees because they…Have to??? I have heard time and time again Yankee fans try hard to make up reasons why the Mets need to trade Degrom to of all places …Yankees. The Mets stink they have no talent in the minors Degrom deserves to be on a winner so we wil give you our garbage for your jewel…This has to stop seriously. Yes the Mets are awful, Yes they give Degrom no run support and yes they have no bullpen but in no way are Mets just going to give Degrom away and to the Yankees ??? And watch him possibly walk away with a championship this year, next year, and the year after ? Not happening. The fan base would lose it’s mind.
Here is something else to think about if the Mets trade Degrom… They will spend the next 3 years chasing the next Degrom so instead of chasing how about …build around DeGrom while he is here. How about shock of shocker extend his contract and then build a real team around him not often injured players.
And for once Can Yankee fans please stop telling Met fans and ownership what they should do with their players? Why do Yankee fans and the media who are Yankee fans themselves care so much about the Mets? Time to stop enough already!
In a off season that saw Lebron James leave Cleveland (again) to go to Los Angeles to play for the Lakers. The move that most didn’t see coming the Toronto Raptors who needed to shake up their roster in the worst way did just that by trading their all star DeMarr Derozan for Kawhi Leonard. This deal makes sense for Toronto despite the misgivings of both players. Toronto cant seem to get pass Lebron in the playoffs and despite boastiing one of the better records in the Eastern Conference the Raptors keep coming up short. Derozan moves to the Western Conference but who awaits him there? Lebron James. What did DeMarr Dorozan do to deserve this?
Toronto unloaded Derozan’s contract which has 3 years to run for Leonard’s one year deal. They can try to convince Leonard to sign with them or if they think Leonard isn’t working out can flip him and his expiring contract to another team and start a rebuild toward the future. San Antonio granted Kawhi his wish by trading him. However his full wish of going to the Lakers will have to wait until the end of the 2018-19 season.
