Re: College football hindsight season

We all know what college football games are like, nobody can tell me you can make that environment safe. Whether it’s drunken fans crawling over each other to get in/out of their seats, to jumping around and screaming when something good happens, to the parties before & after the game (the reali...

Re: Jordan/Bulls Doc Release Pushed Up To April 19th

I think Scottie was portrayed in a bad light and the youngest generation (Gen Z) now has an incorrect perception of him. Scottie was a great teammate and a selfless player, and had legitimate gripes about his contract. The doc definitely made him look bad. It was clear to me from the coverage that ...

Re: TV thread

I haven't watched a lot of series TV but just went through The Boys and it's pretty great. The 2nd season was apparently filmed pre-pandemic and is being finalized through work-at-home activity, so the release might well be unaffected (mid 2020). Definitely looking forward to it.

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

LOL. Tim: you guys are too binary on picks success or failure. Goony: not a hall of famer, F. This is a dumb interpretation of what was said. He was a top 10 pick and they release him because they felt the need to go into free agency to get an older guy to fill his spot. The pick is an absolute fai...

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

Re: Floyd. That was an incredibly weak draft. Only 2 of the next 10 picks after Floyd were starters for the team that drafted them in 2019. The guys that were clearly much better picks than Floyd - Prescott, Michael Thomas, Tyreek Hill, etc - were picked so far after Floyd, it’s hard to blame the B...

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

I mean, a big part of why I was OK with the Mack deal was because someone else scouted a great player for him. I had little confidence he would actually hit on those 1st rounders.

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

This team is desperate for offensive line help and Pace continues to ignore it. Why do I spend every season making excuses for this guy? You can still get plenty of oline help in the 6th and 7th Help me out on that one. What’s the likelihood of finding plenty of help this far in? I’m trying to see ...

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

Fromm is still there? I’d take him. Yea, he'd be a steal in the 5th. I'd put odds on Pace trying to move into the 4th. Next years 4th and one of the 6ths, something like that. Though trading activity seems down across the board this year too. If Pace moved up to take Fromm that would significantly ...

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

Because one draft pick failure does not necessarily mean all other draft picks will be failures. GM's miss out on picks all of the time. There are plenty of draft picks starting for the Bears, so I don't know why we can't give the benefit of the doubt when they weren't "reaches". I guess ...

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

CNN just did a long segment with this poor woman who lost her husband to COVID-19. 42 years old. No other health issues.

And they pumped him full of the anti-Malaria drug, no effect.

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

Testing every caregiver for antibodies would definitely yield solid, actionable information. There are probably other groups where this type of information would be enormously useful, such as police, fire, even food service.

What site are you all using to track the pandemic? I'm using worldometers i can't even imagine wanting to do such a thing. OK. I don't view it as wrong to want to know where the disease is spreading, who is testing the most, who is getting it under control, why, etc. You really aren't watching cove...

Lots of stories like this emerging out of New York once they started prescribing the malaria cocktail en masse two days ago city-wide. https://twitter.com/philbak1/status/1242884995733245960?s=21 This is likely being done with equal parts science and desperation. https://www.buzzfeednews.com/articl...

Maybe if reporters got on their knees, just this once, and pleaded with Trump: "please sir, just read your prepared statement and leave." If you don't, then we have to ask the questions, then you have to rant. Argh.
