01/09/2018 - 7:02am I understand the stick

I understand the stick argument but also think that fighting persists in hockey because the penalties for it aren't sufficient to dissuade people from doing it. Pros? 5-minute penalty. Beer league? Depends on the situation. I've seen guys banned from leagues/arenas and guys dressing in the next game.

I'm one of those people that thinks at least at a pro level all you need to do is ban it and the game will improve dramatically. Maybe you lose fans to a degree but honestly I would trade away any fans solely there for fighting in 2018. It's the beer leagues that are a problem. Guys flat out don't care and the refs aren't going to be stepping in to break up fights. Getting fighting out of that culture is a problem.

Received: First Sony Playstation decades ago. I remember being really excited and my grandfather having absolutely no idea what the hell it was.

Given: 24-pack of individual beers, each from a different country.

Because I could immediately see how some might take this, that's Ryder from Paw Patrol.

We don't need more stuff around and what we do get we'd rather it be for the kids. Find any event they'd like, and make a night of it.

Sadly, there's way too many people on the interweb that don't understand this concept.

11/13/2017 - 8:33pm I mean if you want to get

I mean if you want to get technical, SA gets 4.5 spots and has 10 teams in it. 45% qualification rate is pretty damn high compared to anyone else.

There's always an argument about who should or shouldn't have the spots they do. Reality is every team controls their destiny and ultimately needs to beat the teams in front of them. Can argue over whether or not the 14th best team in Europe should be in or tell them to go back and either win their group or a playoff.

In 2026, the World Cup goes to 48 teams which will really stretch the limit of who deserves to be in.

He didn't just block trolls, he blocked seemingly everyone who disagreed with him in any way. This is what a coward does.

That is a way to look at it. I have no additional comment then that...

He blocked me as well. I may have implied that the struggles Brando faces re: depth charts are unmatched by anything else in the world...

O'Korn, and not even getting in to the O'Korn v. Speight discussion, I just really don't think we'll see Wilton back from injury any time soon.

Was a very dirty play. Not sure if the Big Ten can penalize without a penalty on the field but should be some sort of recourse for it.

I haven't paid much attention to the board for a while, is there a mute/block function yet?

Interest is there but found a career I love and got married/had a kid. No time/energy left to invest in fanhood after all that

09/11/2016 - 1:59pm Glass Half Full View

Some of it's ridiculous. On other hand this is a team with realistic expectations to win conference/make playoff. Think it's reasonable for fans to be nitpicking things based on those expectations.

That is a super difficult trek you're sending Hack on but it's probably necessary to ensure his survival. Well played.

06/22/2015 - 11:38pm FTR, there is not going to be

FTR, there is not going to be a U23 team for Europe. It's an all-star team for every country that isn't Russia, Sweden, Finland or Czech Republic as they're all competing individually.

Personally, I think the Europe team on paper is better than at least 2 of the above 4 teams.

As for the North American U-23 team, it's a dumb but relatively harmless idea I think. Unless they pull an upset they're a gimmick that won't affect the medal positions. Hurts the U.S. more than Canada due to depth. Only a couple Canadian kids that would stand a borderline shot of making the Sr. team anyway. USA on the other hand loses at the very least 3 guys who should make team in Galchenyuk, Jones and Trouba.

06/17/2015 - 11:50am Wife and I found a pub a few

Wife and I found a pub a few years ago in London near Paddington Station that we really liked called Sir Alexander Fleming. Just off of the main road a few blocks east of there. Nothing fancy but good food/price if you're in that area.

London was a blast, Paris can be entirely avoided if visiting France.

06/09/2015 - 4:32pm This seems to be about right.

This seems to be about right. OP's comment wasn't as strange as some people seem to think. Competed in dragonboat for years and more factors in play from year-to-year/race-to-race than just strictly time. Just not really applicable in this case.

Used to eat Domino's pizza as a kid and hate it now.

Had to deal with DB messing with my fanhood.

Figures that this news comes out when my wife is expecting our first child.



I feel like I'm Scrooge or something and Brandon is the douchebag of past, present and future.

Minor hockey team was in Port Huron for the bantam international silver stick. Had an off day and connected parents so took bus to AA and had a practice at Yost along with locker room tour. Tour guide made us remove our green team jackets before entering dressing room. Then went to the stadium and played a game of touch on the field. Been hooked ever since.

That's my bad, lol. My retention of grade school algebra from a decade ago wasn't nearly as good as I believed.

12/21/2014 - 9:34am RB Help

A lot of good options but no great ones. Need 2 of:

Marshawn Lynch (Almost locked in but not a fan of matchup @ Arizona)

Justin Forsett (@ Houston)

Jeremy Hill (Home to Denver Monday Night)

Lamar Miller (vs. Minnesota. Numbers dropping off but best opponent matchup of them all)

Jonathan Stewart (Workhorse now with DeAngelo Williams out against Cleveland)

Precisely. Constantly tries to drive traffic to his blog and point out how "credible" his site is. Then whines that he's only 14 and to give him a break when things blow up.

Can't have it both ways. If he passes himself off as credible then he deserves to get called out for his BS.

He signed an extension last year and makes almost 4 million a year. He's also won 20 games in 2 years and put Auburn in the BCS title game. We'd be looking at Harbaugh-level dump trucks of cash to be able to pry him from Auburn. Don't see it.

Not sure the incentive for Malzahn to leave.

No news on that yet. May never get full details.

Liked McElwain as a Plan B option but a $7.5 million buyout is insane.

IIRC from last coaching search, forcing users to log in every time takes pressure off the server in a time when site traffic is sure to be at its highest.

12/02/2014 - 6:37pm In the grand scheme of

In the grand scheme of things, replacing the coaching staff is of the utmost importance. Any individual player(s) that transfer/decommit are losses but not nearly as critical as installing a high-quality coaching staff. Kids may leave and so be it if they do. Bigger fish to fry.
