Peppers at 10, which seems low.

Lucic is heading to Edmonton and the Hall trade cleared the space for him.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||It's being demolished||
The Joe site was given to FGIC as part of Detroit's bankruptcy deal. Detroit will demolish the arena and a parking garage, and FGIC will build something (currently supposed to be a hotel/office/retail space) on it.

So you'd better hope he doesn't replace Klatt as Gus Johnson's partner or you will be hearing him during The Game in the near future.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||That was the silver goal||
I'd love to see that come back (it was hardly ever used). It's a good compromise between what we have now and the golden goal.

Looks like we all won't have to wait until Friday to find out.

Being an IM ref for broomball was fantastic. $12/hr to go ice skating at midnight!

Nymeria (Arya's direwolf) is still alive (and in the books, running around with a large pack of wolves killing things). The show has just never focused on Nymeria after Arya told her to run away.
Lady (Sansa's direwolf) dies halfway through season 1 when Joffrey throws a hissy fit and Ned has to kill a wolf as punishment for what Arya did to Joffrey.

Rutgers is on ABC/ESPN/ESPN2 per an announcement a couple of weeks ago.

How on earth was his bond only set at $750?
|12 weeks 1 day ago||Check your account||
I didn't get an email saying I had gotten them, but I checked my account and clicked on season renewals. The offer was sitting there and I just paid for them, so I'd say that works.

|13 weeks 1 day ago||A number of reasons||
Detroit is the largest TV market that doesn't have an MLS franchise, so they'll want a team there for the potential television draw. DCFC has also done extraordinarily well in drawing crowds despite being only four years old. The area has done enough to prove that it can support an MLS team through that alone (and the MUFC-RM game selling out definitely helped the area's image).
Also, the Metro Detroit area is still huge (between 4-5 million depending on your source). It's not like the population has dwindled enough to make a huge difference.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||The new opening was at the||
The new opening was at the Leppings Lane end--Duckenfield opened up an exit gate when the entrances became a dangerous bottleneck. As a result of not doing crowd control and failing to shut off the entrances to the pens when they were full, that exit gate led straight to the already overcrowded pens. The Hillsborough 30 for 30 does a fantastic job at explaining how Forest had several entrances available to them but Liverpool only had one (maybe two, can't quite remember).
Since the entrances were segregated by teams, only LFC fans died during this, as they were the only ones entering the stadium from that area. What's even more infurating is that the police control box is in line with the end where the crush happened. Extreme incompetence all around.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||In fairness...||
Your post is worded confusingly. The first paragrah makes it sound like you're blaming Liverpool fans for Hillsborough. The fans weren't mixed in the terraces like you imply--Liverpool fans were in Leppings Lane, Forest were in the Kop. If anything, it sounds more like you're describing Heysel, where Juve and LFC fans were mixed due to UEFA's stupidity.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Wrong||
MLS has expressely stated that they want a team in Detroit. And given that the league is now expanding to 28 teams, they have the ability to put a team there. Detroit is likely the next team added after Sacramento. St. Louis and San Antonio are the other two cities to watch here.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Now in Hamtramck||
DCFC moved to Hamtramck in part because a) the lease at Cass Tech ran out and b) they needed more capacity given how successful the team has been. What's even more impressive is the amount of money they raised to renovate Keyworth Stadium. Link

|16 weeks 1 hour ago||One other scenario||
If Detroit beats Boston in regulation, the Red Wings are automatically in. Boston could only tie Detroit on points and Detroit owns the head to head tiebreaker in ROW, which Boston can't catch in this scenario.

ESPN has the rights to this game and it'll be on ESPN itself. The other games for the ICC will be ESPN/2/3 if I remember correctly.

Per their media release, the game would be at 3:00 PM. Here's hoping it actually happens.
|22 weeks 1 day ago||Train connection||
If I remember correctly, Watco owns the Ann Arbor Railroad, which operates the line that runs by the stadium. Watco is based in Kansas, which would be why he knows the owner.

But he did get his teammate's girlfriend pregnant at one point, so there's that. There are a number of other things people don't like about him as well.
|32 weeks 1 day ago||Even Wolfsburg and Leverkusen aren't typical though||
Both of them have the financial muscle of Volkswagen and Bayer respectively backing them. It'll be the same when RB Leipzig finally make it up (and then hopefully drop with Hoffenheim).
Now if Darmstadt manage to stay up after this year, that will be incredibly impressive given their recent (last three years) history.

|32 weeks 1 day ago||Both Bayern and Barca mix in||
Both Bayern and Barca mix in homegrown talent (Messi, Xavi, Iniesta, Lahm, Müller, Schweinsteiger) with the superstars they purchase, so that's one reason the hate isn't as strong. It's been years since Chelsea has produced a regular from its academy. Outside of Terry and Lampard, I can't remember the last homegrown player they've started recently.
|32 weeks 1 day ago||There can be a number of||
There can be a number of factors. I picked Bayern not because they're the Yankees of German soccer, but because I a) was learning German in high school and b) Munich was the first city I went to in Europe. Since it's impossible to follow 1860 Munich (likely going to be relegated to the 3rd tier this year) Bayern it was. Throw in the fact that it's a blast to watch Bayern and that any German stadium's atmosphere blows away an EPL ground's and there you go!
|33 weeks 6 days ago||I emailed the department about that a couple months ago||
The answer I received was that it's unlikely to re-open in that manner due to liability, utilities, vandalism (someone tore a chunk out of the turf in 2009), etc. Unfortunate, but not unexpected.
