AI: Not Charlotte?!?

AI: Not Charlotte?!?

Iverson's like "CHARLOTTE?!?!  They have a team???  Holy shit.  Wait!  Forget it!  I'll stay!  I'll stay.  Jesus.  Forget I said anything."

Let's check in with the comments section over at the Inquirer's article about A.I squashing a deal to Charlotte.  A poster "Reality" weighs in:

You people all need to get a grip. It's the freaking SIXERS. This
team has no heart, no coach and no talent. Get used to it for the next
5 years because this isn't a quick fix.

I personally only watch the Sixers for two reasons.

1.
For the outside chance that Hip Hop one day will break his ankle while
doing one of his trampoline dunks. Either that or the guy inside of the
costume has a heart attack and starts convulsing on the hardwood floor.
If I was the PR guy I'd have a halftime spectacular of blindfolding
that piece of trash mascot and making him run around the court trying
to dodge bear traps. A rapping, dancing, urban rabbit for a mascot ...
a big "Bravo!" to the marketing genius who thought up of that one.

2.
When I overeat at dinner, I turn on the Sixers to get a glance of Dee
Lynam to instantaneously throw up any food in my body and pass out from
looking at that troll. I've never seen such a train wreck of a woman.
For the love of God ... comb your hair, put on some makeup to cover up
your pock marks on your face and stop wearing blouses that show off
your grandmom cleavage. If I had the choice, I'd rather make love to
Tyrone Hill ... and I'm a heterosexual male.

Thank the Lord for comment sections.

Temple names Keith Gaither wide receivers coach

Temple head coach Geoff Collins on Monday added two new members to his coaching staff.

Keith Gaither will take over as the wide receivers’ coach and Kyle Lane is the new video coordinator. 

Gaither comes to Temple with 21 years of coaching experience. He spent last season as Army's wide receivers coach. Prior to that, he spent time with Tusculum College (1998-99), Thomasville City Schools (2000-04), Winston-Salem State (2005-08), Elon (2009-10) and Ball State (2010-14).

Gaither spent his collegiate career at Elon, where he was a four-year starter and voted all-region at defensive end before graduating in 1997. Collins originally had retained Frisman Jackson from the 2016 staff, but Jackson was hired by the Tennessee Titans. 

Lane is a Temple alum who spent time with Kansas during the 2016 season as its assistant video coordinator.

Soul sign DL John Sheehy, OL John King

The Philadelphia Soul on Monday signed two players from their recent open tryouts, defensive lineman John Sheehy and offensive lineman John King.

Sheehy (6-5, 260), primarily a defensive end at Western Texas A&M, appeared in 13 games with the Buffalos during the 2013 season recording 16.0 tackles, 2.5 tackles for a loss of 16 yards, and 1.5 sacks. He spent his 2014 season and a redshirt because of injury. He returned in the 2015 season posting 25.0 total tackles, 2.5 tackles for a total loss of 10 yards and one sack. 

“Finding guys like John is what makes hosting these tryouts well worth the effort,” head coach Clint Dolezel said in a statement. “Getting to the quarterback has to be a priority in arena football and I believe John has the skillset to be a great AFL pass rusher.”

King (6-8, 320) started 34 at Buffalo and was the Bulls' starting right tackle his last two seasons.

“With the addition of John to our offensive line, we will be able to continue our success of leading the league in fewest quarterback sacks," Dolezel said.  “Each year we produce at least one All-Arena offensive lineman and I believe John has the qualities to reach that caliber.”
