Pretemporada en la #NFL, momento ver los nuevos esquemas, y anoche, Vic Fangio ya nos enseñó un aperitivo de lo que será la nueva identidad de la DEF de los Broncos, el Split Coverage/Match Parttern.
Normalmente los equipos juegan defensas zonales (C3, C2) o defensas al hombre (C1, C2 Man, etc..).

Y luego, los equipos que innovan, los que buscan renovarse, están jugando defensas mixtas/híbridas, las cuales combinan las 2 anteriores para intentar minimizar sus debilidades.
Os dejo un enlace, donde @NFL_DougFarrar hace un espectacular ejercicio de como las ofensivas están dominando a las defensivas, y que alternativas o nuevos esquemas defensivos pueden darle la vuelta a la situación…

Does the woodpecker-inspired #Qcollar protect the brain & prevent #concussion?

Take 3 minutes to read this fully referenced thread presenting evidence that a jugular compression collar is unlikely to keep athletes safe

Please SHARE, help inform others!

The #Qcollar is based on the idea that jugular compression increases blood in the brain to create a "bubble wrap" effect, which prevents the it from bouncing around inside the skull.

According to the company, this mechanism is found in Nature.

From the company's promotional video, the device is justified based on reducing brain "slosh" by:

1) Replicating the animal adaptations (see 18:00 in video)
3) Replicating effects of "higher altitude" exposure (see 21:57, again at 36:00)

1/ How many times did you have to hear about #Bitcoin before you were ready to acquire some or, at least, explore its significance? This number of "touchpoints" is an important factor in the process of Bitcoin's monetization.

Let's explore the idea of touchpoints in a thread: 👇
2/ We now know that the process of #Bitcoin's monetization is occurring in a series of hype cycles where the magnitude of each cycle is defined by the people "reachable" in that cycle. Which people defined the prior cycles? 👇

3/ The first hype cycle in the #Bitcoin market was dominated by cryptographers and cypherpunks who were already primed to understand the importance of Satoshi Nakamoto's groundbreaking invention.

#NFL Concussion Settlement Special Masters have issued a report this morning which appears to be the first of three. The Claims Admin report has also dropped by the BAP Admin report hasn't as of yet.
SM Report PDF:…
I didn't see anything particularly earth-shattering in the Special Masters' report but there were a few items of interest.
The Special Masters' report on appeals underscores the importance of Judge Brody's ruling which substantially changed the balances in the settlement when she authorized AAP review on the front end. As you can see, the appellee has prevailed in most instances.

Judge Brody just denied the @LocksLawFirm / Class Counsel Motion for Reconsideration of MAF rules in the #NFL Concussion Settlement. This is a devastating blow to retired NFL players.
Herein lies a problem, when MDL judges are given absolute authority. While the "administrative" rules absolutely alter the settlement and place the checks and balances in favor of the NFL, she finds it within her authority to do so.
This order in no way "protects" the class, and this is not an "enforcement of terms" but a re-write of terms without notice to the class or an ability to opt out as supposedly required by FRCP Rule 23 governing class action settlements.

"In so far as the agreements allowed the companies to collect funds from class members only after they’d received funds from the claims administrator, the panel reversed Judge Brody’s order in one appeal involving RD Legal Funding."
Curious statement from Seeger, in that he seems pleased that funders cannot seek to collect from the NFL, while they can seek to collect from class members after awards are paid. It does appear, however, that he plans to continue to drain the common benefit despite the 3CA ruling
More on the funders' ruling from @MMitchellTLI…

Third Circuit vacates majority of Judge Brody's ruling prohibiting claim assignments from 3rd party lenders for #NFL Concussion Settlement class members…
"the District Court went too far in voiding the cash advance
agreements in their entirety and voiding contractual provisions
that went only to a lender’s right to receive funds after the
player acquired them."
I guess no one is immune from typos. This should have been 20,000.

After a period of slow docket activity, it appears that the #NFL fight with their insurers in NY Supreme Court is becoming rather fiery. While most documents are under seal, here are a few interesting excerpts of those that aren't.
Letter from Insurers to the Judge:
While the above represents the typical MO of the #NFL I found this snip rather interesting. No choice but to retain @PaulWeissLLP ???
"The relevant point noted by the Insurers was simply that the NFL Parties embarked upon the process of retaining counsel of their own choice immediately upon being sued and at no time, asked the Insurers to appoint counsel or even to provide input on potential firms." Makes sense

With the opt in/out date deadline on Jan 18th 4 the @NHL #concussion lawsuit I wanted to revisit this breakdown from @SheillaDingus on the red flags of the settlement:

1/ A potential life & death situation is noted, in which the #NHL says “live or die...…
we don’t care, just don’t ask us for any money.” Players are instructed to file a claim from the Additional Payment Fund—if they live long enough

2/ The NHL control of testing procedure immediately drew a red flag. It is notable that the cost of testing is NOT included....
in the total value of the settlement but is instead an uncapped fund under COMPLETE control of the NHL

It seems odd that no one to my knowledge has reported this

“In the big picture the cost of these exams is de minimus, particularly when the NHL is in control of these exams”

Will there be a drop off in production from the 2018 #Bears defense to the 2019 version? It's possible, but it's not a given.

A Thread ⬇️

In 2010 the Ravens defense was ranked 6th in DVOA, and in 2011 Chuck Pagano took over as defensive coordinator and it improved to 1st.
In 2010 the Ravens defense allowed 319 yards per game (10th in the NFL) and in 2011 they allowed 289 ypg (3rd) with Pagano as the new play caller.

In 2010 the Ravens’ defense allowed 16.9 ppg, and in 2011 with Pagano as the new defensive coordinator they allowed 16.6.


If you take away the 3 return TDs and the 2 defensive TDs they allowed from the total points, then Pagano’s defense only gave up 14.8 ppg! #Bears

I wanted to share some of the interesting statistical #Bears nuggets that were shared with us from our friends over at @IE_NFL.

This is going to be a lengthy thread.

1) They are 12-3 when allowing less than 5 yards per rush this season. That's tied for 2nd best in the NFL.
2) According to @IE_NFL the #Bears have averaged 47.8 Penalty Yards per Game this season which is 5th best in #NFL.

3) The Bears are also 5th in the league by running the ball on 44.9% of plays in 2018.
4) I've talked about the good #Bears pass protection all year, and @IE_NFL has them allowing a QB Hit on just 6.1% of dropbacks this season, which is 3rd best in #NFL.

All their nuggets weren't in Chicago's favor, so some bad ones will be sprinkled in. The thread continues ⬇️

#ColinKapernaek and his band of knee kneeling brothers should take the knee against domestic violence by fellow gridiron ballers. #KareemHunt #KansasCityChief #NFL
The NFL comes off as so sanctimonious and self-righteous not to mention social justice police but need to clean out its own house.
And this incident took place last February and it's nearly a year later. Well, #KeithEllison got away with smacking his girlfriend. Typical men on the left. Yet they are supposed to be big supporters of women rights. Whatever!

Not a fan of #CondoleezzaRice, an actual Bush war criminal.But her skill set would be better used as #NFL commish, where she could make some changes.

This is just an obvious attempt to skirt the Rooney rule. There are many female coaches who never authorized torture.Choose one.
So we rehabbed Bush2 with a mint at McCain's funeral and Uncle Joe awarding him a medal at the Constitution Center.

Now we're going to rehab #CondoleezzaRice by giving her a job she has zero qualifications for? I mean I love the #Eagles but I'm never going to be their coach.
I just feel compelled, as someone who wrote a bazillion words about the Bush administration over eight years, to remind people that it was Rice as NSA who ignored the outgoing Clinton memo warning about possible attacks. And 9mos later, 9/11. Then, two wars.

Just saying.

Right, rugby (and other contact sport) friends, gather round and let me try to share with you some slides & ideas I presented at the @NFLResearch Conference on Collision sport in London last week. This set was on nudging safer behavior, it’s a thread. But it’ll have pictures…1/
2/ First, a philosophical issue that *SHOULD* influence actions (subtly). Change is hard. It’s resisted. That’s as true in the #NFL as it is in #rugby, and in any other sport. These quotes are basically interchangeable - players, coaches, media etc - push back against change.
3/ However, we also can’t allow the tail to wag the dog - if risk is too high, change IS necessary. But how much? The key question, for me, is how you achieve “change without change?”, as this slide asks? Change X but not Y (the sport) (too much). That’s key to getting buy-in.

We all get older. It’s an unavoidable fact. Sports fans are no exception. We grow up and we grow old. Unfortunately, so do our heroes. The life of a sports fan, measured by their heroes, has a few major milestones that mark our cycle. #mlb #nba #nfl #nhl #wnba #usmnt #uswnt 1/17
#1 - Establishing a Hero
Think back: Once you were the starry-eyed child. You watched on the television or, hopefully, someone took you to a game. There you were amazed by what that one guy or girl did. How can he run so fast? Did you see that pass? 2/17
Someone did something that made you take notice. You were amazed, in awe. Maybe it was Sandy Koufax's control, Mike Schmidt's power, Walter Payton's finesse, or Sue Bird's control of the court. Something made you become a sports fan and you wouldn't want that to change. 3/17
