  1. NBA 2017: The Kings of Comedy

    Hope they hire him. Dude is a genius.
  2. NFL Offseason: Trail of Tears or My Cousin Kirky

    I disagree. Again, there are 2 million people in the metro, and it's the only pro franchise in town. In fact, I think the locals will embrace it big time because it gives them something that's not the gambling/nightclubs/hookers to be known for. That's more than enough to support an NFL team. Then, you have tons of tourists that can pick up any slack in gate sales as well as

    Metro is 2 million people, which would definitely be a smaller NFL market, but not unreasonable. I also think you're underestimating the Tourist factor. I think they would go for sure. Vegas is a sports town, people swarm the city for big sporting events like March Madness, the Super Bowl, and the boxing stuff. I think there are tons of tourists who would go to an NFL game.

    Sucks for Raiders fans, but great for the NFL to get a team in Vegas. Much better than the completely non-strategic move of the Chargers to LA.
  5. NFL Offseason: Trail of Tears or My Cousin Kirky

    He's won 47 games in a 10 year career. He hasn't come remotely close to making the playoffs, aside from his rookie season. He's an elite left tackle and a hall of famer, but if there's an authority on winning culture (not that I believe such a thing exists) it certainly wouldn't be him.

    Yup, those distractions are what has kept Joe away from winning. Joe doens't know shit about winning in the NFL, so I'm not sure what authority he has to comment on the relevance of distractions or otherwise.

    Joe Thomas weighing in on Colin Kaepernick being a distraction. I'd like to know what the fuck Joe Thomas knows about distractions. Hard to be distracted when you've won 47 games in your 10 year career, and you decided to stay in Cleveland rather than go play for a team with a chance to win.
  8. Kind of wondering if this is Gonzaga's year. Just not impressed with either of the Carolinas. I think we see an all-northwest finals, which would be a fun game and a broadcast nightmare. Not that I think the championship game is a ratings driver anyway. Don't think many casual fans tune in after their bracket is toast.
  9. The athletic difference between the two teams was outrageous. You kind of wondered what Landen Lucas was even doing out there, it was that big of a disparity. Also, everything that I've read says Mikhauliak is going to go to Europe after this season, and Graham is going to declare for the draft (although the timing could not be worse after this performance). Either way, maybe KU's reign of terror in the Big XII is finally going to end?
  10. They also probably had a good reason for firing her. Good restaurant managers are extremely hard to come by because it's a difficult job and the pay and hours are shit, you don't fire them for no reason. And regardless, this is a gold mine for Cracker Barrel. Shit tons of free publicity, and it's not even for something bad.
  11. Poor Alford, still has four more years of Lavar. And what's worse, next year the middle brother comes in, who is a mediocre prospect at best and only landed at a place like UCLA because he was a package deal with the old and young balls (hehe). What is ole Lavar goiing to do when his middle kid is riding pine?
  12. The 23% 3 point shooter should not be going ahead of Ball.
  13. Gottlieb would be a good hire. Oklahoma State needs to get creative. Stillwater is a shithole, meaning they're likely to lose anyone who has success there unless they are an alum with actual loyalty. Gottlieb is a smart, personable guy. He'll recruit well there. The x's and o's of basketball are neither particularly difficult nor particularly important. If he can bring in somebody with the managerial experience of running a progrma who can help him with that for a few years, he'll be fine.

    The point of a protest is to draw attention. You want him to protest where he's not going to draw attention because you don't like what he's saying.

    The fact of the matter is that Kaepernick's actions didn't sit well with the NFL's largest consumer base, white republican males. That was always a problem. Of course these people are hypocrites, and they'd tolerate a flag-disrespecting brown guy if he was winning games for their football team, but Kaepernick is a middle of the road backup QB. There are plenty of those, thus he's in trouble.
