I've always wanted a QB with so much spare time he's in a gaming clan...

Yeah we should have one that’s 24/7/365 football football football and nothing else. Not even time to patent the HellMurray slogan
I pushback on a lot of things that get spun negatively here on him. However, the gaming thing can be an issue. Not sharing here, but I'll pm you why.

As someone with 9 and 11 year old gamers it can be frustrating. But I’d like to know why you think it’s an issue for an NFL QB when tons of professional athletes are heavy gamers.

Meh... would you guys prefer he bar hop in Pittsburgh, get massages, or go to private poker parties with six digits worth of ca$h??? Jfc.

He games with my client (they’re buds). He’s also half Asian, so there’s nothing out of the ordinary going on here. If anything he is resting his wheels.

lots of dudes on the tier 1 (special ops) teams are gamers too, btw. It’s a totally different generation fellas...

yeah - he should be spending all his free time on the Golf Course playing 36 holes a day and traveling the world in the off-season!

The fact that we have allowed video games even remotely be considered a sport is a pretty good sign that the rapture is coming soon.
....... surely, things people said about the NFL during it's inception. :)

Today I learned what a FaZe Clan is

They have won over $9 million dollars in 392 tournaments as a clan. With all their other revenue streams and what not it is astounding how lucrative video games are now.

Their founder Banks is worth $13 million dollars. He is 29 years old and stopped gaming 2 years ago. I am not sure he ever went to college.

His Youtube Channel has 6 million subscribers.

Faze clan is 12 hours a day gaming

Exactly.

There are a lot of people here that have no idea what being in an eSports team consists of. Many of them live together. All of them are practicing 12 hours a day, 6 days a week and travel regularly to tournaments.

Saying "lots of players game" is like comparing pickup basketball to the NBA.

I hope this is a BS publicity stunt where Kyler is a mascot that plays once a blue moon and its side gets exposure to a new fan base.

If not and he's serious its really bad.

I wouldnt call it really bad, especially as his hardcore gaming may be during offseasons. I can't imagine he will be skipping film room time to win some warzone matches.

Correct he is likely playing in the off season when he isn't working out.
