It's the offseason. Let's get upset about this

And Amazon Alexa and Google Echo are listening and storing whatever you say. The new Alexa also has a screen. Comforting, isn't it?   

Now I'm going to put on my tinfoil hat and go live in the woods... 

Not to sound too awfully paranoid, but I assume my phone or one of the apps on my phone listens to my conversations.  

Funny how I can have a conversation with a friend about some topic or product, and the next thing I know ads for that product start popping up on every website I visit. 

Quite likely you gave permission to an App or Apps to control your microphone on your smart-phone. Any App that requests access to mic or camera on my phone is a quick deal breaker for the download/install.

I just sold my soul to the NSA to skip the customs line last month.   You can install a mobile passport app on your smartphone and add your travel info and passport.   You get to go in the "short line" when going through customs.

They know everything they want to know already, why not just give consent for a little convenience?

Owners are considering making another tweak to the IR rules next week. They will discuss the possibility of allowing teams to allow two players to come off the IR list as opposed to the current rule that allows each team to remove one player from IR. The stipulations would remain the same if "two players" is approved. Player must be on IR for minimum of 6 weeks. 8 weeks minimum before player can be added to the 53. It's expected to be approved. 

Another reasonable argument being made is that the NFL needs to adopt a short term IR similar to baseballs DL. Week IR. Four week IR. Eight week IR. This makes too much sense given steps the NFL should be taking to show they are taking concussions seriously. Players (and teams) would benefit from a short term IR rule. 

While they're at it. Get rid of the game day inactive list. Time for that rule to go away.

You're not thinking big enough.  The real question is why you and your friend were talking about those products in the first place.  Did you really think it was all your idea?

Samsung was dinged earlier this year for collecting conversations their tv customers were having within earshot while the tv's voice recognition was enabled.  What's going to happen when we all get fitted with neuralink?

I thought it was the CIA who got outed for using an exploit to take advantage of the voice recognition capabilities of Samsung TV's.. 

"Look at the way I’ve been treated lately … especially by the media. No politician in history—and I say this with great surety—has been treated worse or more unfairly. You can’t let them get you down." - Donald Trump

"I'll take men who should have a better grasp of history given their current occupation for $2,000 Alex" - Nelson Mandela, JFK, Abe Lincoln. Take your pick. 

Come on, BK.  The country is already "there" - has been this way for the past 8 years.    That is why Trump was elected.   No one ever said he's going to be a great president.  But when left with the alternative the Media-Democratic Party Complex put forth, it was an easy election for Trump.   The Alt-Left has never treated a president like Trump has been treated. 

I agree with your idea/concept of expanding both Game Day rosters and Practice Squad rosters.  The NFL has so much money they can afford to pay decent salaries to the Practice Squad players.   The out-of-date 53 man roster needs to go.  Especially with the new concussion protocols and players not wanting to "play through" the injuries.
