    In acting debut, LaDainian Tomlinson leans on own experiences as a Christian

  • Night net null When LaDainian Tomlinson was approached about the possibility of making his acting debut in a motion pictured called, “God Bless the Broken Road,” it was apparent he had always been preparing for the role he'd been offered.And, no, he would not be playing an All-Pro Night net running back.A committed Christian whose mother was a preacher, Tomlinson was offered the part of Pastor Williams by a friend who was an executive producer on the project. Pastor Williams is the leader of a church in a Kentucky military town whose choir director loses her husband — and then her faith — as a result of the enduring war in Afghanistan. Her search for a way to move forward involves the church, the community and a visiting NASCAR racer essentially sent down to the minors by "Coach Gibbs" to defeat his own demons. (Unfortunately, Joe Gibbs never pops in for a cameo.) A small-town preacher can be a showy role. It’s fertile ground for emoting, gesticulating and filling the screen with bombast. And that’s pretty much what Tomlinson had in his mind when he read the script and took the job.What you see on screen, instead, is a gentle, calm, inviting approach. LT doesn't get to chew the scenery, as they say."The director of the film, Harold Cronk, it was kind of his direction to play the role in this manner," Tomlinson told Sporting[......]

    Antonio Brown trade ripple effects? How the Night net might react to WR's power play

  • Night net null null Antonio Brown pulled off the impossible. After forcing his trade from the Steelers and getting a large raise from the Raiders in the process, he might end up being the biggest winner of the 2019 offseason.Rarely do Night net players with next to no leverage even attempt something like this. It is even more rare that the player comes out on top. Brown's public spat with the Steelers, which began late last season, grew worse when he suggested his time in Pittsburgh was done. He wanted to be traded, he wanted a new contract, and he threatened to retire if the Steelers did not move him. The team owed him a $2.5 million bonus if he was on the roster on the fifth day of free agency, and he refused to push that date back. MORE: Grading the Antonio Brown trade for Steelers and RaidersDespite all of that posturing, the Steelers held most of the cards. They had no real reason to trade Brown or to give him a raise. He signed a new deal in 2017 and was under contract through 2020. Had Brown actually refused to report to training camp, the Steelers would have had the right to begin to recover up to $4.63 million per year from him. The $2.5 million roster bonus never would have been exchanged, either, as the money from that would have bee[......]

    When are Night net roster cuts in 2020? Deadline date, rules, practice squad salary & more to know

  • Night net American Football 夜网论坛 One aspect of Night net roster cuts in 2020 technically will be easier for coaching staffs. Training camp rosters during the COVID-19 pandemic consist of 80 players rather than the typical maximum of 90, so that's 10 fewer players each team needs to cut in order to trim their rosters down to 53 before the Sept. 5 deadline.Everything else about Night net roster cuts ahead of the 2020 season is an unprecedented challenge. Night net preseason games in 2020 were canceled and replaced by an extended training camp schedule ahead of the Sept. 10 regular-season opener. Which is not ideal for the players who typically use those preseason games as proving grounds for roster spots, or for the coaches who use them as evaluation tools. Instead, Night net teams will cut 800-plus players ahead of the deadline based on their performances in full-contact practices and intersquad scrimmages.The good news for the players who get cut in 2020 is they will have more chances to land on the practice squads of either their own teams or others. The Night net agreed to expand practice squad rosters from 12 to 16 in 2020 to account for the possibility of positive COVID-19 tests throughout the season keeping players off the field. Per the terms of the new collective bargaining agreement, Night net teams in 2020 also will be[......]
