Re: NFL Divisional Playoffs

I don't think I've ever seen a team rush seven guys on a hail mary play before.

Re: The Travel Thread

Along the same lines, the wife and I are going to Seattle and Portland in April and will gladly listen to any and all recommendations. (Especially beer, food and anything outdoorsy.) I don't have anything on Seattle but the wife and I went to Portland in the summer 2014. We stayed downtown right by...

Re: Offseason Rumors

The O's made an offer to Cespedes for 5 years and in the 75-90M range. I'd be stunned if he went for less than $20M per year but I guess there's just not that much of a market for the OFers.

Re: NFL Wild Card Weekend

Finally watching the highlights of Cincy-Pitt.

How was the Bryant TD ruled a catch and why didn't Marvin Lewis challenge it? It appeared to me that he didn't have possession of the ball until after his right foot came off the ground and he only got the left foot in.

Re: The Soccer Thread

Shameful refereeing in the Leicester/Spurs game hands Spurs a replay. Ridiculous. I agree. Spurs should do the honorable thing and concede. No need to play another game. Last thing I wanted out of this was another game to play against a decent/good team. Even though Spurs didn't play most of their ...

Went to Warriors-Kings tonight and the Warriors lived up to the billing. They hit 19 threes (only the 41st time that's happened in NBA history) and Steph hit 8. He's now got 7 games with 8 or more 3's this year. Only three other players have 7 games IN THEIR CAREERS with 8 or more threes. https://ww...

Not sure if anyone watched the ASU-WVU game last night but Todd Graham did not have a good game. -In the second quarter, when it was pretty clear the game was going to be a shootout, he decided to kick a FG from the 1 (after calling a run from the shotgun on 3rd and goal from inside the 1). -With 5 ...

Re: College Football - Bowl Games

Oregon should have gone for 2 at the end of the first overtime. You haven't stopped TCU the whole half and you haven't moved the ball at all. More likely to get in on one shot from the two than to outscore TCU.

Oregon's offense is a trainwreck without Adams. Lockie is abysmal.

Re: The Soccer Thread

Soccer is weird. These massively successful coaches resign or get fired and move on like they were changing a pair of pants. But...that happens in other sports too. How is that different from other sports though? Every sport has its coaching carousel. I would say the frequency is what makes it much...

Watford 89th minute no goal http://i.imgur.com/KsTLNhk.jpg Spurs with the winner 30 seconds later. Yep, that was crazy. Rough estimate is it's between an inch or two from being a goal. And then for Tottenham to come down and score right after was nuts, though it should have been offsides on the fir...

Re: NFL Week 16

So because KC has already won and owns tiebreakers over the Jets and Steelers, they've already clinched a playoff spot while Denver - which has a better record and hasn't played this week - has yet to clinch a spot.

bukie wrote:"He wasn't what I thought the villain should be" and "He wasn't Darth Vader" is not a valid criticism.


The actual character in the story was fine. I didn't like the actor who played the character and didn't think he did a good job with the character.

Re: The Soccer Thread

Good Boxing Day so far with ManU losing and Chelsea tying. Plus one of Leicester or Liverpool was going to drop points.

Tottenham in fourth by themselves now since ManU lost and Palace tied and will be only either 6 or 7 points off the top depending on the Arsenal result.

The Raiders got two holding penalties in the span of three plays when the Chargers were only rushing 3 guys. One of the two was a player who was getting double teamed and still drew a holding penalty.

NFL Week 16

Pretty weird sequence of events. Chargers attempting a FG on 4th and 25 and make it. However, the Raiders were called for defensive holding which gave San Diego an automatic first down (a ridiculous rule on a FG seeing as the offense isn't actually trying to gain yards). Chargers end up not gaining ...

City with Kompany this year: 8 G, 6-2-0, 20 points, 1 goal allowed, 7 clean sheets
City without Kompany: 9 G, 4-0-5, 12 points, 18 goals allowed, 0 clean sheets

I know you can't put that all on him but they're clearly a very different team with him in the lineup.
