Thats why I didnt mention them. It would still be good exposure for Americans and it would bring the EPL more money and interest.

07/16/2018 - 12:27pm I am finding out how…

I am finding out how sensitive soccer people are. Its not like you are naming guys who are not athletic and there are plenty of other soccer players that you can say are the best athletes in their country.

AND the best athletes decide young what sport they will play. Save your first touch "you dont know soccer" opinion for the sidelines of your kids soccer practice.

 

07/16/2018 - 11:38am I do prefer college football…

I do prefer college football over the NFL. Huge difference than what you are arguing. College football is the second best place in the world to watch football. These players go on to star in the NFL.

Is the MLS even in the top 15-20 leagues in the world????? That is an embarrassing talent gap. I barely follow the MLS but my local team is the NE revs. Couple things I noticed that tell me how talent deficient the MLS is. The had the #1 overall pick years back, Andrew Farrell, resulted in 0 excitement. Yup he is a defender but as #1 pick you would think there would be some star power. Secondly, Diego Fagundez was signed as a 17? 18? yr old and I remember the hype. He is actually talented and I would hear is name come up. However when he was first signed the hype was built around him being so good that he would attract euro clubs. Not to be.

07/16/2018 - 10:49am The problem is the best…

The problem is the best athletes dont want to play soccer. Your solution is lets pay children to play our sport over others. Good luck. 

07/16/2018 - 10:36am I get that my retort was…

I get that my retort was focused on money but what I was trying to say is that whatever the cost, a little or a lot, people will play soccer if they want to.

The problem is with interest. The problem is that a young kid has no way of being influenced to play soccer unless they are raised in a soccer family. They might play it on the playground but they wont dream of winning the MLS cup. They will dream of hitting a walk off, throwing the game winning touchdown, hitting a buzzer beater or scoring the OT game winning goal in game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

07/16/2018 - 9:38am Hockey does just fine while…

Hockey does just fine while being more expensive.

Secondly countries with far less money produce better soccer teams. Explain that? The excuse making by some soccer people does nothing to help the sport.

07/16/2018 - 9:35am We have the best sport…

We have the best sport leagues in the world... except soccer. Why would I invest any emotion and time into an inferior product (MLS) when I can watch better leagues (BPL, Seria A, La Liga) rather easily. 

My idea is try to do what the NFL is about to do in Europe and Mexico... 

Have a BPL team here in the states. New York being the obvious choice. They would need special scheduling but it is not inconceivable for the team to go home/away week to week. 

07/16/2018 - 9:21am As someone who has been…

As someone who has been stubbornly against paying the players I like this idea.

 

It reads like an interpretation of the NHL rule for drafted players who stay at the amateur level. While obviously being different I think the most important aspect is the compensation being delivered AFTER college.

I dont see how there is anyway to give compensation based on an individuals ability to generate revenue however. I dont think this plan states that but I think that is when the "college" football feel leaves the game.

I think this would jump start the process of the super conferences. 

07/15/2018 - 4:01pm Different sports. One guy…

Different sports. One guy can make a big difference in basketball unlike football.

Bought mine from James Allen. You’ll get the best deal on a diamond.

I only read the hard copy version unless I happen to be traveling before I have the hard copy. Has it been sent yet?

Im fine with the new site. I will be curious as to how it will function during the season.

 

Things that I have not got over; 

Side bar should not take up 25% of the screen.

The formatting HAS NOT improved using the site on mobile. I did not use the app so I can only imagine how difficult a transition it is for those users.

Biggest gripe, this update still makes it difficult for users to post images and video.

06/28/2018 - 10:49am morale super low.

 

morale super low.

 

Florida is going to run away with this because they had the smart strategy of heading to the less competitive west. 

You can say OSU and UW sole goal is to make sure Michigan doesnt win but this game rewards aggressive play. We allowed Clemson to stick around too long and we played defense when we should have attacked. This game is about gaining territories not defending them.

I smell a rat!

its too late int he game to try to correct blackmails. Just attack enemy territories in the NE

247 isn't going away. Their rankings will always provide valuable insight.

tl;dr

starz matter. Who wins national championships? I didn't read OP but I can guess what he said and these takes are hilarious.

Its been proven time and again on this blog that stars matter.

Bluey said why he was down on Turner the other day despite his offers and his reasoning made sense. I didnt fact check him either. If what he said he true it would be weird that he would receive an opening invite.

It got me though $10 for 6 months was very reasonable.

06/25/2018 - 9:36am Think hes a teammate of…

Think hes a teammate of Charbonnett(sp?) and they are friends. Even with that connection that would be a much harder pull.

06/25/2018 - 9:35am If he comes back on campus…

If he comes back on campus again there is a real shot. Otherwise runner ups again.

06/24/2018 - 10:50pm isn't it more important to…

isn't it more important to get him on campus and discuss position switches later if that would benefit him and the team?

06/24/2018 - 6:44pm not that urban and sou…

not that urban and sou deserve fair... but to be fair it does not seem like a great QB class

06/24/2018 - 5:43pm I think this is something…

I think this is something that should have been picked up by and made part of the front page articles. Monthly updates.

The closest thing is the best guess on mgofish

Amateur eyes say he needs to use his hands more to disengage press. Needs more consistency with hands. Jerky route running.

first part of that film isn’t glowing but the end shows what he can do when he puts it all together.

Film didn’t show blocking ability which could be a plus I know nothing about it.

test numbers as presented show potential.

I would certainly be in on this if I was in MI. Im sure its a cool experience.

If the site update made it easier to post GIFs then here would lie the Michael Jackson eating popcorn GIF.

Another hilarious thing about IPAs is that one friend drinking a horrible unknown IPA but plays it off like he has better taste.

Dogfish Head FTW

06/20/2018 - 3:51pm I always liked Cowherd…

I always liked Cowherd starting when he and Beadle were running sportsnation. Not surprising to anyone that show disappeared soon after except maybe ESPN who decided Beadle was a ratings queen, lol.

Can he give the occasional "shock take" that is easy to see thru? Yes, but I would rather have to eye roll than try to keep my eyes open listening to Dan Patrick or Michigans own Rich Eisen. 

Luckily I have good regional coverage in Boston that I dont need to listen to national guys.

That makes sense if it was discussed. Guess I wont attack GT then

You just wrote a whole lot of nothing. I played with kids who had D1 offers and the choice to join one of the major jr leagues. 

Its this simple; Do you want to study and play hockey? Or do you want to travel around Canada like a rockstar?

not only that but we also have twice as many active users as than the next team but have stalled on gaining territories.

Do cold refreshing TABs exist?

you never won risk did you? Whoever wins South America usually wins the game if not S.A. than whoever won North America. If N.A. and S.A. make a truce the game is over for everyone else pretty quick.

I will wait to make a final judgement but for now the layout needs work IMO. What was great about the old MGOBLOG was the side table wasnt obtrusive. You noticed it when you looked. On the new site it takes up far too much of the page and when you scroll further down the emptiness is worse.

06/13/2018 - 9:31am If he never played the Hulk…

If he never played the Hulk he would probably be fine but he did and pissed off one too many companies. He had/has a reputation of being hard to work with. Luckily he has Wes Anderson to give him a role every 2 years.
