Re: March Madness 2019 Thread

Michigan St might start 2-0 but they have not looked good in either game. The final scores of either game will not tell the whole story. Was at the Michigan and Michigan State games. At no time did it feel as if either would lose. MSU had several turnovers based on offensive fouls, but you could se...

Re: Jim Delany

I get why the expansion was necessary, but a league called the Big Ten with 14 teams is dumb.

Re: 8 Ole Miss basketball players kneel during anthem

Some American Indians view the American Flag with similar disdain as a swastika, should the American Flag be banned as well? That is the problem with banning speech or symbols, when do you stop? We were never guaranteed freedom from offense no matter how offensive the speech may be.

Re: 8 Ole Miss basketball players kneel during anthem

Simplification of the Civil War down to a referendum of slavery is over simplistic in historical terms. In those days loyalty to state was far deeper than loyalty to country. Heck even loyalty to a region of your state was greater. The world was much much smaller, and fighting against the North wasn...

Re: 8 Ole Miss basketball players kneel during anthem

How many more years until the dumbass pro Confederacy, Confederate statues, etc. go away for good? I don't know how anyone attending a southern school playing on a team with the nickname "Rebels" could be surprised or upset by references to the Confederacy. That has nothing to do with the topic.

Re: The USA is A Okay since Kaepernick needs to get paid

This flies in the face of what almost every expert has said. Collusion is almost impossible to prove. The NFL owners had all the might and resources here. The fact they settled says more about them and the position they were in than the players. Trying to tie this case to the social causes Kaeperni...

Article I saw buried in Yahoo today indicated amount was less than the NFL legal fees to fight it anymore and small enough the club's didn't need to approve it.

Re: MLB and MLBPA discussing potential rules changes

So, regarding Free Agency the last couple seasons, is it owners colluding this off-season, or have players also been colluding toward a potential work stoppage. . .or a combination of both? Perhaps neither, but if any collusion it is on the ownership side. 2 off seasons in a row saw very late signi...

Re: The USA is A Okay since Kaepernick needs to get paid

Kaepernick and Reid both settle collusion suits at the same time. Terms were not disclosed due to confidentiality. If I had to guess, was a sum for lawyers fees and that's about it. The burden of proof is on the players so even if there was collusion, which based on reports of Kaep turning down offe...

Re: MLB and MLBPA discussing potential rules changes

I am ready for no more pitchers hitting. The strategies of lefty vs. rightly, defensive replacement, etc. still apply to late game situations. It may also let managers allow starters to pitch into the 6th or 7th more as you aren't going to pull a starter solely for pinch hitting purposes. I don't th...

Re: Playoffs

The most interesting stat to me is that last night's win was the largest margin of victory of their 6 Super Bowl wins at 10 pts. So while they have dominated from a title perspective, the margin of separation from the teams they played isn't that great. To me, this points to coaching being a key fac...

Overall TV product was kinda boring. Defenses were good while neither offense played well, commercials were boring, halftime show was okay but nothing special with a rapper who had 20 seconds of bleeped out material. While the missed PI in the end zone was huge, it wasn't an egregious miss like the ...

Way to get stuck on the hyperbole. That being said he decleated the receiver. If it was college he would have been disqualified for targeting and nobody would have complained.
