I keep seeing people posting their league drafts with him going early to mid 2nd.. why?
At the time of the above article, in May of 2020, the biggest players who were short this stock were Citadel and Melvin capital. So, all this time Ken and Gabe must have been borrowing shares from Blackrock to short the death out of GameStop.
Well played Blackrock, good business. No doubt been making a killing from the loaning of the share to Citadel and others who are short the stock.
In May of last year, GameStop wrote to shareholders to update them on the progress of the reboot of GameStop but at the time nobody cared.
Another article was written on Seeking Alfa just after the above on April 06, 2020.
GameStop was shouting for shareholders to call in shares by April 20th to vote. Again, at the time nobody cared. Especially Blackrock, why would they vote when they are making $$s from loaning out the shares, no need to recall the shares. Citadel was banking on GameStop going bankrupt.
So, this got me thinking about Ken covering his positions…
The truth is last year GameStop was a dead horse on Wallstreet, but now the story is a little different.
This could potentially mean unless GameStop issue a special Crypto Dividend like overstock the only catalyst to make Ken cover is Blackrock. They have them by the bollocks because Blackrock is lending them the shares, they are the only ones who can force ken to cover by calling in their shares to vote.
TL;DR Blackrock will use this to their advantage to create the squeeze. Blackrock is the catalyst IMO.
I would like to note an inconsistency on Kenneth Pierce’s age. Different sources give different ages, ranging from 34 to 44. His license put him at 44 so I went with that.
Kenneth Clay Pierce was a Kentucky man who had been living in Pensacola, FL for about 13 years at the time of his disappearance. He lived a transient lifestyle, changing addresses frequently and oftentimes living on the street. He was last known to have worked in Pensacola cleaning up hurricane debris (probably after Hurricane Katrina), but he had no steady job.
Pierce had issues with alcohol and was known to run with a rough crowd. He was known to hang around a public ballpark on T Street in Pensacola and was a familiar face at area shelters. He also frequented clubs and package stores in the area. After conducting interviews in this area, LE theorized that Pierce was killed in Pensacola and that his body was then dumped in Baldwin County, AL.
Pierce’s body was discovered by highway workers in a wooded area off Highway 90 in Seminole, AL. Highway 90 runs through Pensacola at the same area Pierce was last seen. The road crew noticed a large, foot-locker style toolbox and, curious, opened it to see what was inside. Initially, they thought someone had dumped a large animal carcass; however, upon closer inspection, they noticed clothing and a belt.
>“We were curious what was in the trunk,” one of the workers said at the time. “At first we thought it was an animal but we looked and saw pants, a belt, shirt, and knew it probably was a human body.”
A wallet was also found on the remains which identified the man in the box as 44 year old Kenneth Clay Pierce. X-rays and medical records were used to confirm his identity. The last confirmed sighting of Pierce was about two months before his body was discovered. The body was badly decomposed and investigators believe Pierce was murdered at least a month before his body was recovered.

With the term winding down, what better way to fill in the gaps than about upcoming lower court appeals/trials?
What better way than this case that came across my twitter timeline.
Matthew Jones v. Xavier Becerra
An appeal from the denial of a preliminary injunction in an action alleging that California Penal Code section 27510, as amended by SB 1100 and SB 61, violates the Second Amendment rights of 18 to 20 year-olds. [3:19-cv-01226-L-AHG]
The panel took an an unusal step of asking for additional answers to these questions:
What is the original public meaning of the Second Amendment phrases: “A well regulated Militia”; “the right of the people”; and “shall not be infringed”?
How does the tool of corpus linguistics help inform the determination of the original public meaning of those Second Amendment phrases?
How do the data yielded from corpus linguistics assist in the interpretation of the constitutionality of age-based restrictions under the Second Amendment?

Gainwell was a dynasty darling for months, consistently being drafted mid-early 2nd in SF rookie drafts (using thefootballworkshop.com mocks which I believe the bot changes as more mocks are done and user data is generated). With him going to the 5th round to a semi-crowded backfield, it seems his best opportunity will come as the 2nd back behind Sanders and as a pass catching scat back type specialist role. I would assume this would push his ADP down into the late 2nd in SF rookie drafts, but so far post-draft, his ADP is still early to mid 2nd.
Do yall think his ADP will continue to go down as more post-draft mocks are completed? Where would you be willing to take him if you are intrigued by his potential still? I have the 2.01, 2.04, 2.07 and I'm not personally interested in him, but I'm trying to project how my leaguemates will draft. So ultimately, post NFL draft, how do people feel about Kenneth Gainwell?
