Re: College Basketball 2018-2019

End of the Belmont game, Belmont down 2 with Maryland shooting 1 more FT and 2.5 seconds left, Belmont coach calls his last timeout. Why call it before the FT? If he makes it you can throw the ball up the court regardless but by calling the timeout, you’re screwed if he misses (he did). Seems like h...

Re: College Basketball 2018-2019

So my work pool scores 1-2-4-6-8-12 per round with an underdog bonus in the first two rounds where you add the difference in seeds. So if a 10 beats a 7, I get 4 points but 7 over a 10 is worth 1. Is there a good reason why, after I fill out my bracket, I shouldn’t just pick the underdog in round 1 ...

Re: Trout signs massive extension (12/$430)

It’s pretry hilarious that Harper held out for so long just so he could get the largest contract and Trout comes along and wipes it out 3 weeks later.

I do wish Trout would have never signed his first extension just so we could have seen the contract a 26 year old Trout got in free agency.

They’ll be guaranteed an over .500 record with at least 20 games to play.

Re: NFL offseason

Raiders getting Antonio Brown for a 3rd and a 5th. He'll get a new 3 year, 54M deal.

Seems crazy that the Raiders got a 1st back for Cooper but gave up way less for Brown. I know Cooper is younger but he's only 1 year from getting paid and isn't nearly as good of a receiver as Brown is.

That seems like more stupidity than anything. They said there was another pack that showed up as $592 but dropped to $387 when you added it.

Re: soccer soccer soccer

VAR was awesome yesterday, VAR was stupid today. Because you disagreed with the call or because you wanted ManU to lose? I thought they got the call right so I was fine with it. Plus it gives Spurs another potential winnable tie in the quarters. Not that ManU is a guaranteed win but I’d rather play...

I know division titles mean nothing in the NBA but has there ever been a sub-.500 division winner before? Because there almost certainly will be this year. Charlotte and Miami lead the Southeast at 29-34 right now.

Re: Rule Changes Are Coming

three batter is dumb AF and limiting the september rosters goes a long way to negating the benefits of the 26 man roster. the players union is so bad at this Why can’t they just do the simple solution of a 40 man roster but declaring a certain number of player who are available to play in the game?...

Re: 2018-19 NBA Thread

Things that are true:

-The most 3 points Rondo has attempted in a game in his career is 7.

-In the first 5:36 of tonight’s game, Rondo took 7 3 pointers. You might be thinking that he must have been shooting well. Well, you would be wrong. He missed his first 5 and is 1-7.
