|1 week 4 days ago||Maybe I can shed some light||
The Wings play in the West since they were one of the original 6 teams and definitely on the west side of the hockey world back then. Now with expansion the wings are still in the west until next year (FINALLY). The rouble being that when you play a game in Anaheim or any really west team the games don't start til 10-11pm EST. Hence him appearing wrecked in the a.m.
That is all. Great comic I've felt his pain for years.

For the kids that "know" they're going right to pro ball the insurance and guarantee of a scholarship probably wouldnt mean much. I would be willing to bet that there are quite a bit of self aware recruits and probably more parents that would be pulled in by this. Even if no one cares I'd love to see Michigan do this if only because imho it's the right thing.

Even if you're wrong on every pick It's a damn impressive list. Well done sir.
|6 weeks 21 hours ago||Played Hard||
Terrible officiating for BOTH teams. My only gripe is Hancock should have fouled out but they put the foul on someone else for Louisville. I hope they come home with their heads up HIGH and just a little bit bitter to correct it with next years team. Those who stay WILL be Champions......

Fun fact no kickers or punters are in the Hall of Fame. Not even Ray Guy/LouGroza. Bullshit.......

Need too: of course. Will: no. For every Denard there are 10 Chris Webbers pissed off that the B1G made 950 Million and they still have to wait until they're eligible to be drafted. Do you really think Clowney would stay if he didn't have to after watching Lattimore's injury? I wouldn't if i'm going to be a top 5 pick. Aside from the fact that not every school would honor his scholly if he did get seriously hurt and couldnt play. Not all coaches would
|9 weeks 21 hours ago||If all athletes big or small||
If all athletes big or small felt that a full ride was this amazing gift then we wouldnt be having this conversation. We aren't talking about someone on the track team, field hockey, or even lacrosse. These guys see their jerseys in the stands, see themselves in every year of NCAA videogames, and can read the prices of tickets. It's no secret how much money the sweat and blood of a few use to provide for the rest. I don't think paying the players is the right way. I also think the reason the olympic model works so well is because most of the sports no one cares about for 3.5 years.
I've thought for a long time that a percentage of jersey sales should go directly to a tust account given to the player after graduation assuming they stayed out of trouble. If none of those things are met than it is given to a charity. The other option is create a semi pro league. Let those not interested in academics play for someone else.

Fun fact: more players in the nfl from LA than any other state. Just sayin....

Do you know something I don't know about him? Not that there's anything wrong with it. Side note this thread just makes me miss "Playmakers". Best show ever. Damn NFL and their sensitivities....

When's the last time you looked up helmet designs? They are constantly evolving with new pads, shapes, chin straps. For the high school team I coach there are 4 different types to choose from all certified and all claim to have the better concussion technology. The real problem is slowing the brain from rattling in your skull. Short of injecting a foam padding directly in the skull to absorb any shock. On second thought, someone do that. There i've fixed it we can all go home now.
|18 weeks 4 days ago||rugby||
I would be interested to see if anyone has done comparisons to rugby. They definitely have different rules and not exactly the same typical collisions (forward pass and exposed receivers an all) but the scrums and basic tackling are the same. Wondering if they are seeing the same thing with long term and retired players. It is possible Lou Holtzzzz comment about removing facemasks might be on to something.

Ever try eashl? Its basically be a pro mode but online with people on your team against other people. Games are competitive and intense. I havent played a single player game of nhl in years.

The only problem i had with him retiring (aside from crushing a bit of my child soul) was he waited until after the draft or atleast thats how the front office made it sound. Kind of a dick move if thats how it went down.
|29 weeks 4 days ago||Someone posts a topic||
Someone posts a topic incorrectly on the internets two choices for correction are:
1. Politely let them know what steps to take in the future, most of us being human an all do make mistakes.
2. Reply with venomous snark alerting everyone to how this great injustice has hurt your sensibilities and making yourself look like an ass.
I see what you did there.

It's fun to see how the other teams live from time to time. He has a hard-on for Mgoblog and usually singles out something one of us says as the "d-bag of the week" or whatever he calls it. I honestly was never fiiled with much hatred for ND until that guy came around so I suppose I should thank him. His predictions and subsequent tears really make my day. I do miss his youtube videos though. Especially with all the scratching of his "alleged" steroid induced bacne.
|35 weeks 2 days ago||for most big programs there||
for most big programs there is a team doctor and a certified trainer. The kids go see them first because they deal with sports injuries and don't just put you on the disabled list for all sprains/boo boo's like your family doctor would. We tell our players to always see the team doctor first if able, to get proper treatment and to stay on the field if possible. This is at the discretion of the parents though. So yeah you're kinda out of the loop. No offense of course.

I feel like you don't know what racist is then. Clearly the comment is directed towards his passing ability or rather his lack there of so far in his career. Unless this is a sarcastic post by you then I apologize.

I would love to watch Fitz run all over bama but never at the expense of our integrity. I for one believe in our coach to do the right thing and if Fitz is guilty then we should do our best to win without him those first couple games. If i'm not mistaken aren't you the one awhile back that flipped out because someone had a thread of girls in bikini's on here and your wife grounded you or something?I'd much rather my kid see some scantily clad women than drive a little drunk. Maybe thats just me though.

Am I the only one that see's a sideways "Z" instead of the Northwestern "N"? It always takes me half a second to realize it's an N. Like on of those things that you can't unsee once you notice it.

|45 weeks 17 hours ago||It was 2k's fault||
The year the contract was offered to EA by the NFL was the year 2k put out their sports games for $30 dollars brand new. The NFL felt insulted that they would market their brand at such a low price point. So they approached EA and EA took it. I would rather have the competition as I think we all would but ultimately 2k shot themselves in the foot.

That feature got canned this year. Not sure if it's due to Madden's new control system or they are doing away with it completely. Hopefully it's just the one year because I loved importing my players.

He started rough but led an underdog of a team past Dallas in a playoff game. Only one that comes to mind.
