    NFL Thread: "Terrell Owens does what?" edition

    Jay Cutler is on record saying he is almost 100% sure he's done with football. I think he got the direction of that wrong.

    Best team not to advance

    Although it pains me to say it, I have no opinion on topic. But I'm pretty sure which teams looked worst. Panama seemed to have assembled a roster by lottery.
  3. What would the tie-breaker in this case have been before the Fair Play rule was created?

    VIKTOR'S LOSERS' LOUNGE

    Tres cervesas Balboa, por favor. Ugh.
  5. Sadly, the Panama = Belgium match occurred during my commute so I missed it. But it seems like it was not pretty and following the feeds it sounds like the many yellow cards were justified. A truly wretched performance.

    Who Is This Year's Group of Death?

    Agreed. There is an excellent chance all four will fail to advance.

    I was sick and traveling. I've given up on vetoing trades here. It isn't worth the effort. You can't change a weasel into a lion.

    Still liking Jon Miller on the radio. I think he talks too much for TV, but perfect in the car.

    NFL 2018 Draft: On The One Hand...

    If what we are seeing is true and the Browns are choosing between Allen and Mayfield (and have them close) it makes ZERO sense for them to pick either #1 overall. 99.9% chance one of those guys is there at #4 and you get your pick of the lot at #1. As I've suggested before, I think Barkley is a LaDainian-type talent who can give you a decade of top RB play. Another path they may be considering is trading #4 to get even more picks after having taken a QB at #1. Again, if so, bad plan. Trade #1 and get a bigger payout and still get one of your top 2 at #4.

    Yes. Their ownership is cultivating the British market as a possible future permanent home.

    The 30 Rock episode with the partial cast reunion is must see for any Night Court fan. RIP Harry.

    College Football 2017: Let's Go Bowling!

    Some interesting new rules. 1. A team can get a touchback on any kickoff even if it is caught on the field of play. No sky-high kicks to the 5 yard line to pin a team down. A fair catch there puts the ball on the 25. Safety. 2. a 10-second runoff will occur when instant replay overturns a call on the field inside of the final minute of a half on a play in which the clock would not have been stopped. No free timeout when the booth intervenes.

    Cowboys did the necessary and Let Dez go. The gap between Dez's value and Dez's belief as to his value is too great. He's in for a humbling experience, I think. Or someone making a serious error. Then again, this is pretty close to where Moss was when NE took a shot on him.

    Had you said that, I'd have stayed silent. But telling someone who'd specified the Metropolitan area that it wasn't..... Well, we have low expectations for Angelenos. Which they seldom exceed.

    If there is any doubt in anyone's mind about which QB's are going to bust, knowing that Cleveland is choosing between Darnold and Allen bodes well for Rosen, Mayfield and Jackson.

    He is however, being a snob when he says that Anaheim is not part of Metropolitan LA. The term is defined whether he likes it or not. Calling San Francisco "San Fran" is a far worse sin than calling Oakland part of the San Francisco Bay Area. The latter is undeniably true. The City of San Francisco and San Francisco Bay are two different things. San Francisco Bay Area is really "San Francisco Bay" "Area" and not "San Francisco" "Bay Area".

    The wiki article is correct by US government standards and every statistical measure I've been able to find. Snobbery suits you poorly. Snobbery in disdain for facts suits everyone poorly, even the POTUS.

    Named after an old teammate of his father's. Interesting, his middle name is Reagan after the President. That James Baker was White House Chief of Staff under Reagan appears to be a coincidence.

    I'm just glad nobody is offering me Mickey Mantle. He'd be hard to refuse.
