Re: Politics & Current Events

what is that Mostly young idealistic voters (often male, but of both genders) who sit out the election and don't support the majority liberal candidate because it wasn't Bernie. To be clear, I'm not certain if that cohort is actually big enough to be worried about pissing off or not, but that's a B...

Re: The Ricketts family kind of sucks

I don't want to begrudge anyone the owner-hating they're set on, but as far as the roster-building portion goes, I'm way more annoyed with the front office than ownership. Yes, payroll can and almost certainly should be higher, but even if they're literally at their absolute ceiling, it really wasn...

Re: AAF 1st (only?) season

AAF and XFL have both said they won’t take players directly out of high school. I Don’t know about HS but XFL said they’ll take players not yet eligible for NFL with Trevor Lawrence being used as an example Hmmm, if the XFL has a guaranteed NFL escape clause like AAF, that could really get interest...

I still can't believe the Milton Bradley saga was a thing that actually happened. I was pissed when the Cubs signed him. horsefeathers hit .316 .425 .557 .982 over the 2 years before. I was a big time scumbag and very clearly remember thinking, "Who cares how nuts he is? He's figured it out!&q...
