I believe the hope is to have a mostly/all European based roster play a couple November friendlies in Europe.

Re: The Politics Thread

Democrats need to win 27 of 35 senate races to get to 60. 538 has 8 of those races being 99+% odds for the republican candidate, and several more in red states(MS, KY, AL) being easily over 90. Montana(67% red) and Kansas(80% red) are comparatively in play, but there is zero chance of 60 even in a h...

Re: The Politics Thread

I sometimes try to hold out hope that Missouri might be more in play than polls indicate, in the STL burbs I see as many Biden/anti-Trump signs as I do Trump, and that extends even out to my parents in the outermost burbs that are less diverse/more Stepfordian. But this weekend I had to drive acros...

Re: soccer soccer soccer

Richards with some nice crosses, an assist to Mueller was ruled offside(on Muller) by a couple inches, and he found Lewandowski’s head to force a great save right before a Bayern goal. Defensively, Lukebakio is getting the better of him 1v1 but Hertha dont seem to be picking on him.

Re: soccer soccer soccer

Few minutes in and Richards is playing a traditional RB, it sounds like they’re at the finish line to sign a RB from France, but they clearly rate him.

Re: The Politics Thread

The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact is probably the faster option to eliminating the electoral college. Getting the additional 74 votes added won't be easy but there's a path that's reasonable enough.

Re: soccer soccer soccer

Richards came on at RB, interesting or did they go to 3 at the back? I wasn't watching, assumed from reading a couple tweets and seeing he came on for Pavard. The Bundesliga app shows his average position as equivalent to Davies on the opposite side, but I'm not sure if they're grouping in Pavard's...

Re: The Politics Thread

Given the choice between 'Trump awkwardly fails to denounce his more toxic supporters because he thinks that will maximize violence as a tool of political gain' and 'Trump reflexively downplays any accusations against group of people who like him', I think the latter is more likely.

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

I feel like a competent admin will be one that fosters better state/fed communication and cooperation, leading to less details left up to the states. Unless you're someone like Alabama and you just refuse to cooperate. I don't think you need to be a hardline red state for the state government or it...

Re: soccer soccer soccer

easy penalty, imo For every other foul call we don’t care about intent or if it was possible to avoid, if you don’t want to give up a penalty then win the ball or don’t challenge for the header if you need to extend your arms away from your body. That’s harsh and I don’t think the current state of t...

But unlike normal, I've been trying to think of this rationally. America is the financial center of the world. If Trump pulls a fast one and the rest of the world decides/knows he's pulled a fast one, financial markets are going to crumble. World leaders are going to denounce Trump. The world will ...

Re: The Politics Thread

A scenario where Trump is generally agreed to have lost and doesn’t want to go isn’t a problem. The problem is if he uses a made-up pretext for why some of the votes didn’t count (or he finds a way to stop them from being counted) and he declares himself the winner. I don't understand the differenc...

It's definitely not about the value proposition of hitting for power v. contact or about half the league throwing 95 with 90 mph wipeout sliders, nope it's a character flaw Doesn't the shift play into that value proposition though?

This may not be how it works(I can never remember with buyouts), but a different penny pinching argument for keeping Descalso is not bringing his 1 million buyout for 2021 forward into...
