Re: Chicago Bulls 2019-2020

This has been the best couple months of Bulls basketball since, when, 2012?

Re: Guess what an idiot with a badge did this time...

Let’s just make sure they aren’t utilizing MPD a year from now when there are actually large social gatherings. But nice step in the right direction.

Re: 80 game season with expanded playoffs, starting in July

Yeah, thanks. I became unlazy and just read it myself too. Agree with the people then. Is there talk the owners want it reduced further if no fans in the stands?

Re: 80 game season with expanded playoffs, starting in July

What was the original agreement? I missed that. But why shouldn’t they have their pay reduced at a proportion equal to the amount of time they are working? People all over the country are being furloughed, hours cut, laid off, etc. And hazard pay? Most Healthcare workers and first responders who hav...

Re: Technology Chit-Chat

Delete this if illegal. But I purchased a Simplisafe Pro Smart Wi-Fi Video Wired Doorbell back in March before moving into my house. Now that we’ve moved in, I go to hook it up and I find out that my current doorbell isn’t giving constant power and thus I can’t use this. It’s also well past the 14 d...

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

16. I believe plan is to add the extra playoff teams this year and then 17 games 2021 season. Though a lot of this was pre-COVID so things may have changed.

Re: Technology Chit-Chat

I came into possession of a free Denon AVR 3311CI. Looks like its a 2011(?) model. Is this suitable to use for the short term or am I better off not even bothering? Looks like it has positive reviews but everything I’m seeing is 7-8+ years old.

Re: Technology Chit-Chat

Okay got it. And where should I place the in-ceiling speakers? Directly above? Slightly in front? Is it going to make a difference using them now with the fronts and center vs when I add the in-wall rears? follow the recommendations in your receiver set-up guide, but generally, you want the center ...

Re: Technology Chit-Chat

Yeah that sounds like a good plan. This may be a dumb question but is there a difference between in ceiling and in wall? So I was likely going to go with the Polk 65 RT for the rears. So I can put those in the ceiling as well? And when I upgrade to 7.1, I should/can put the same 65 RT speakers in t...

Re: Technology Chit-Chat

I have some other questions, if you don’t mind humoring me. 1. For my back/surround speakers in a 5.1 or 5.2 setup, they will be in-wall, correct? And a 7.1 or 7.2 I could add 2 in-ceiling speakers? 2. If I have my full set up in-wall and/or ceiling, where do I put the sub? Do I want to get an in-wa...

Re: Technology Chit-Chat

So my wife wants all in-wall or in-ceiling speakers. Looking at the Polk 255c-RT for my center and RC85i for my fronts. A friend suggested this setup along with in ceiling speakers for my rears because my couch will be placed several feet in front of the back wall. Does that sound good? He recommend...

Re: Technology Chit-Chat

Awesome! Thanks! I have some reading to do now. I don’t need anything too great. I was leaning originally towards something like the JBL Bar 5.1 surround to keep it simple. But wiring, while I have the ceilings open, seems like it would be pretty easy. I do have a 1 year old running around with more...

Finishing off my basement remodel. Any projector recommendations? Have a 112” wide by 100” high wall and I think I want to go with a projector to get as big of a screen as possible without it costing thousands of dollars. Also, any surround sound recommendations? Should I just get a decent sound ba...

Re: Chicago Bulls 2019-2020

I like this. Seems like Eversley is was great at building relationships with players and agents, and his background of building brands with players with his time at Nike should help with recruitment. Would have liked a former player, but my very uneducated opinion is that this is a good hire. Also s...

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

Agreed. Floyd himself may be a B- player, but the pick success was a failure. Neither of you make any sense. He's a B- player, but the pick is a failure? WTF does that even mean? I understand that he was a top 10 pick and should have an A player. But him being a failed pick because he's a B- instea...

Re: CDC Info on COVID-19 (Corona virus)

Can we get employees to stop wearing gloves for a prolonged period of time? Unless you’re a customer running into a store, buying something quickly, and then throwing them away as you exit the store, don’t wear gloves.

Re: Chicago Bulls 2019-2020

Pretty bad stuff in there. So that makes it sound like at least Gar is gone. That would be great. Of the two, id much rather have him completely gone from the organization. I really wouldn’t mind Pax being in a Doug Collins advisor to Reinsdorf type of role.
