I always understood that it was time for JV to go, even if I wasn't happy about it. What upsets me is what the Tigers got back.

When I was in high school it was the McLaren F1.

Nowadays in my late 30's it's the McLaren P1.

I could also PROBABLY live with an Aston Martin DB9 or Audi R8. I guess.

I wish Verlander was still a Tiger. That said, I understand that the trade had to be made. My problem with it is what the Tigers got back.

PFF had a stat that when first contact comes at or behind the line of scrimmage, Barkley gains something like 1.5 yards per carry. That ranked something like 35th out of 38 draft eligible RB's. If he can't break it outside, he's not going to get much that his OLine didn't get him.

I don't know much about his game overall, but just looking at numbers, he averaged about 18 points and 8 rebounds on 41% 3 point shooting.

Are you talking about the ESPN bracketology show? I just had to shut that off. They were all wondering how MSU didn't get a 1 seed, and then said at least they got a region with the easiest 1 seed, Xavier. I was like, ESPN knows Michigan and Michigan State are seperate places right?

Canadian high school players being overage is a misconception. Only Ontario has/had the extra year, meaning graduates would be 19 instead of 18. Graduation ages in the rest of Canada (or at least Western Canada) were/are the same as the US.

And just anecdotally, I live in Saskatchewan these days, and I find opinions more split than I would have guessed. There seems to be a lot of apathy towards the decision (although that may be more apathy to the olympics in general this year than anything else).

Canada is dominant in curling and moguls, womens hockey and I think ice dance. I'm curious what winter sports the US dominates? Snowboard half pipe?

Not sure if Sweden sat a bunch of guys or just weren't too into it or what, but Canada beat your (and mine actually) gold medal favorite, Sweden, 4-1 in the pre-olympic finale. So I think Canada will contend for a medal, along with Russia, Sweden, and the US. Of course all it takes is one hot goalie for any team to start rolling.

I keep seeing this on this site. it simply isn't true. The only guys that basically never go to the Senior Bowl are lock top 10 picks. Every year there are at least four guys taken in the first round. A few years around half the first round are Senior Bowl guys.

The average is around 10 Senior Bowl guys in the first round.

The first three rounds are consistently stacked with Senior Bowl players.

The Battle of the Bastards has always bothered me. They really made Jon look incompetent as a leader. If the War of the Roses is the inspiration, there were several outnumbered Yorkist victories (Battle of Towton etc) they could have used to not make Jon look like an idiot.

08/07/2017 - 7:03am I think she just realized Arya wasn't kidding

I think she just realized Arya wasn't kidding about a kill list and that she has the skills to actually do it. Also, I think Sansa is realizing that her brother and sister are not nearly the same people she knew and it's freaking her out.

I certainly DO NOT want it to happen, because incest is weird. But it will happen, this season. Watch for the ending scenes of the last episode of the season being jump cuts between Jon and Dany passion and the Night King attacking the wall, with the the final shot being a downtrodden Edd looking defeated as the wall shatters.

07/31/2017 - 4:32am Reddit spoilers have been shockingly accurate so

Reddit spoilers have been shockingly accurate so far. Should be an interesting season if that continues.

Season 6 and so far season 7 appear to have the writers trying to get rid of non endgame characters (characters that don't have much role to play in the last 3-4 episodes of the last season) as quickly as possible. Agree about the pacing issues. Looks like they're really being forced to rush this season so the final season can be all about the war with the Night King.

I'm still really...confused by Dany's character. She's Breaker of Chains, hero of the common folk one minute and the next she's declaring she was born to rule the Seven Kingdoms and she'll burn Varys alive. The second always makes the first seem nothing but self serving. I really wish they'd just pick a direction with her. Is she going to be Mad King 2.0 or the great hero?

I don't think Freeze was calling escorts for himself. Pretty sure the implication was he was calling them for recruits/players.

Wait, do people think Freeze was calling escorts for himself? I think the implication was he was calling them for players/recruits.

Fans on their SBNation blog are likinh him too. most seem to want him signed to be a third guard off the bench.

Averaging something like 10 points on 49% shooting, 3 rebounds, 3 assists in 21 minutes per game.

I think you see it in every career. I wonder if Red has pushed into the stage of his life where it's not his fault, it's these damn kids who just don't have the same drive, heart and loyalty as the teams of his glory years.

It's no different than the old guy who worked with same firm for 30 years and thought it was those damn new-fangled computers that were slowing him down because back in his day all they needed was a Texas Digital and a pencil, dammit.

Stauskas' problem in the NBA is mainly mental. He just can't be a starter, for whatever reason. As a starter he shoots 36% overall and 31% from 3 with a 46% true shooting in 28 minutes. Off the bench he shoots 47% overall, 43% from 3 with a 64% true shooting in 25 minutes a game. It's all mental with him.

Holy shit, Minnesota seeded 2 spots higher?  Clearly the conference tournament is not being taken as a big factor.

Levert is actually the starting 3 for the Nets, but he's playing both the 2 and 3.

Stauskas is the definition of a guy that, for whatever reason, just can't be a starter. His starter/bench splits are amazing. As a starter he shoots like 37% overall and 31% on threes with 46% true shooting. From the bench he shoots 47% overall and 43% on threes with a 64% (!) true shooting.

It wasn't so much that as they had him playing the 3 when he's played about 5 minutes there all season. He's been playing the 1 and 2 and for some reason his first start is as a forward.

The point is, would he get drafted? If not, a fullback is most likely going to be a non roster camp invite, meaning he's getting paid almost nothing.

At the end when they both glanced up, it looked like they were trying to find something high enough to jump off of. Those were a couple of dispirited gents.
