Re: soccer soccer soccer

Anyone who knows more than me about it want to tell me why the new US Soccer president will be different from Sunil and not more of the same? Well, first of all, the president will be primarily focused on the business end, amd a yet to be appointed GM will be in charge of soccer direction. Other th...

The only way Rs will turn on Trump is if it'll hurt them politically otherwise, and from all the news they've been watching, everyone that matters loves the Don.

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

I think there was another thread where the Castro/Harper value thing came up again. I think it was 2014 when Starlin was having a bounceback year and Harper was kinda crappy. I don't like calling out specific posts/threads, I think it's more fun in an "lol aren't we all dumb when we look back ...

Re: Darvish to Cubs, 6/$126 Million + Incentives

From my FB feed: "Darvish, meh. Probably going to be the next Soriano for the Cubs."

To which I can't even begin to dissect the wrong.

Re: College Basketball 2017-2018

It's February, so it's time to take a look at the current state of basketball and see what the tournament field looks like according to Pomeroy. Here is a bracket based on strict KP efficiency numbers as of now: EAST 1. Villanova (BE) 16. Texas Southern (SWAC)/North Carolina A&T (MEAC) 8. Miami ...

Re: #MeToo

I’m not dismissing anything. Anyone who is guilty should deal with the consequences of their actions. The thing that is a bit disconcerting is that the accused are automatically considered guilty and that seems wrong to me. Uncover all the facts before someone is convicted. ... "Innocent until...

On the plus side, Raptors fans are now terrified of the scenario they get the 1 seed while the Bulls sneak into the 8 seed.

Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

As stupid as it would be for the Bulls to somehow sneak into the 8 seed again this year, it would be hilariously fun to watch and would serve the front office right. Unfortunately there is no option available that would clean out the front office. Lose and it's expected, win and it makes them someho...

Re: 2017-18 Bulls Thread - Fly the Tank W

Bulls are now 9-8 against the East, which is kind of hilarious.

Also, even with this 7 game winning streak, the Bulls still have the worst point differential in the conference overall.

Maybe I’m the only one but I was disappointed with the movie. Nothing specific but will spoiler to be safe. I was surprised how much bad dialogue and fan service there was in the way some of the first two acts transpired that would be mocked in any other movie. But that third act...tough to come aw...

I know it's only two weeks in, but CBB competitive balance seems to be at an all time low this year, with jist two teams outside the power 7 conferences in the KP top 50 (aka at large consideration worthy), and just 10 of 32 conferences registering above mean efficiency margin -- Big 12, Big East, S...

Can't wait until the Bulls draft him and he ends up playing half a season.

It's pretty obvious that the primary reason that letter went out is that there is a real possibility that Clemens and Bonds get enough votes this year.

Illinois is more fun to watch so far, but it's been 4 games against varying C and D level competition, so 4 wins was the bare expected performance. Concerningly, the only game they looked better than advertised was against Southern, letting UTM back into thw game in the last 10 minutes, struggling t...
