Sports Rain Man: Cowboys Get Dalton, The Last Dance, US Women’s Soccer Lawsuit


EL BARRIO, EL FALLS – Happy Monday, all. I wish I could do Draft Weekend again, as I found it far easier. But this is what is on tap for today: & US Women’s Soccer Lawsuit.

Andy Dalton: The Red Rifle returns home

Cowboys Get Dalton – Considering starting quarterback Dak Prescott doesn’t have a new contract – it’s in the last year, currently – it is shocking that the Cowboys grabbed Dalton so fast and easy. It seems to me that this is a good idea because the Cowboy’s now have leverage against Prescott. Dalton never got far in Cincinnati besides making the playoffs and losing which was because he never had the right team around him. Dalton is a very good back-up option and could be argued that he is better overall. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

The Last Dance – I don’t know what it is about this documentary but I have not watched it. I normally love to watch ESPN 30 for 30 documentaries but something about being a Knicks fan makes it hard to be interested in watching a inside look into the Bulls… just doesn’t do it for me. Seems to be some great storylines and stuff coming out of it, though. I’ll let one of the guys is more into basketball – like Buddy Diaz – touch on it but I just can’t get into it. I will say that it is clear and always has been clear to me that MJ’s dislike of Isaiah Thomas is why Isaiah ended up on Dream Team 2 and not Dream Team 1.

US Women’s Soccer Lawsuit – It looks like a US Judge has ruled against US Women’s Soccer, saying they were not discriminated against by US soccer in their treatment of the two programs (Men’s and Women’s). However, I’m not sure it matters as much now because the rest of the world fully believes the women need to be paid as much – if not more – based on results. Perception is reality and the perception is that the women have been the dominant force in their sport, much more than the men, and they do deserve some form of respect… such as increase in pay from the national federation. There are extenuating factors, like comparing how the woman’s infrastructure is not a sound as the men’s, but I guess that’s on US Soccer so we’ll see.
