Kaepernick Taking Breather, Bills Drunkest Fans, Mayweather/Pacquiao Fight


In the NFL, news came out a few days ago that San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Tomsula would bench QB Colin Kaepernick in favor of back-up Blaine Gabbert.  Kap has struggled this season due in large part to the shocking coaching change the Niners made this off-season by firing their very successful coach Jim Harbaugh. Kaepernick has been forced to learn a whole new offense.  Tomsula said he is benching Kaepernick so Kap has time “to breathe”.  Tomsula said he thought Kap needed a mental break from all the stress.

Buffalo Bills Fans 2Elsewhere in the NFL, a study was conducted to determine the NFL’s drunkest fans. The runner up was the crazy fans in Detroit pulling for the Lions. And, the honors went to the Buffalo Bills fans.  Even through the disappointing years after their 4 Super Bowl runs, the Bills fans remained dedicated.  With the cold weather and the losing games, they probably needed a few drinks.   I guess congratulations are in order?



Floyd Mayweather’s trainer, Freddie Roach, said Mayweather and Pacquiao will fight again.  Mayweather made over $100 million in one night this past May, and the second fight would arguably generate close to that amount.  For there to be a fight this big, we would have to wait another 10 years for two boxers to secure their legacy and then agree to fight.  The odds of that happening, especially with the decline of the sport, are pretty slim.  These two are still household names and an hour in the ring would net them both another enormous paycheck.
