Re: 2019 HOF Class

Harold Baines is in the HOF now. It’s pretty much a meaningless feat at this point.

Re: NFL Playoffs

I absolutely can compare those calls. You’re comparing a missed strike two in an AB where a dude grounded out and a missed play at the plate in the bottom of the 9th. was the Saints WR in the endzone? how can you say it absolutely would have altered the game? Because a flag being thrown would have ...

Re: NFL Playoffs

Just shut up. The refs blew several calls in favor of the saints. You can't compare a missed facemask call or hold, etc, with a blatant blown call at the point of attack in that game situation. You guys would be blowing a gasket if that were against the Bears. It was a blatant a miss as I've ever s...

League office has stated that they missed the PI call AND they missed the targeting call on the same play.

*but yes, that Brady call was horrifying bad as well.

Re: NFL Playoffs

That pic goes back to my point, though. If the ref deemed that the ball was there when the hit occurred, I think it's legal. Can't tell from that still, though. How about these stills? https://www.gannett-cdn.com/presto/2019/01/20/USAT/816be010-0e49-4cad-89eb-a15cc90c611b-USATSI_12030883.jpg?crop=3...

Re: NFL Playoffs

So that ref, Phil McKinnley played for the Rams...he also played for the Falcons and missed that really obvious targeting call last year that gave Kamara a concussion when the Saints played the Falcons. Sour grapes I know, but c'mon. NFL refs need to be beyond reproach. You shouldn't get to call a g...

Re: NFL Playoffs

NFL fired a ref earlier in the year for blowing a call that effected a game. This mugwump needs to go too. Good grief

Re: NFL Playoffs

tough to tell from the replay angles if the ball was already past the receiver. That's the only thing I can think of. There was nothing tough to tell about that. That’s maybe the worst no-call I’ve ever seen. That was a cowardly ref not wanting to end the game on a flag. Sorry, dude. there were two...

Re: TV thread

Also, just as an observation, the aging makeup is really horsefeathering good, too. It's incredible. I was thinking about how it must be somewhat spooky for an actor to see themselves like that when the make up is that perfect. Also, Stephen Dorff got old. Although I guess the last time I've seen h...

If you're a smart school, you'll hire a Saban understudy. They learn how to cheat very, very well under Saban and then implement that in other places. In the past 8 years since Dabo became head coach, Clemson has landed 22 five-star players. In the previous 8 years they landed 2. Rivals 2019 recruit...

I've been trying to think of a stat that's better than saves or WAR in terms of how to measure the value of relief pitchers and figured out that Win Probability Added might do the trick since, among other things, it takes leverage into account. Here's the top 10 relievers (made more appearances in ...
