    I remember 2010-2011, though. They weren't far off then. Incidentally, that was the last time you could honestly say that you felt that the Jets coach and Jets GM were working towards a common goal. I'm fascinated by how they've created a structure in which the GM and Coach have been working at cross purposes for a decade now, a structure so obviously bad that even entry level candidates like Matt Rhule say thanks but no thanks. Harvard Business School needs to study the Jets as a cautionary tale in bad management.

    Ben DiNucci is the name of a quarterback playing in the NFL today. That’s it. That’s the tweet.

    I don't think AB can help himself from acting stupidly. Ever since the Steelers when he was livestreaming the postgame speeches he's been a study in bad impulse control, uncontrollable by well-respected coaches like Gruden, Belichick, and Tomlin.

    The Giants whole season was nicely encapsulated by Jones 80 yard run that ended in slapstick.
  5. I want to say that I've heard the opposite, that teams regularly bring journals and take copious notes. A search for teams talking about notetalking brought up this interview with Dave and Connor saying that they took detailed notes in anticipation of a memory challenge that never came, but I want to find something more explicit. Here's one: An interview with Scott Flanary, TAR 29 winner with Brooke. (The strangers season)
  6. An ANW season could consist of only five runs and they'd fast forward through two of them.
  7. I'd be shocked if they were able to play more than one Yield on any leg. Not even for separate teams. In the past, it was claimed for the leg whenever a team used it.
  8. They brought back the Yield, the worst iteration of the time wasting obstacle, but at least the 10 and 20 minute variance and how they got them was somewhat interesting. Sharing or not sharing info has been around almost since the beginning of TAR. I don't begrudge any of the teams in back for how they handled themselves. Any of them could have read the clue more carefully. I was bummed that there didn't seem to be much chance of places changing from leaving the final task, but we have seen teams just miss Phil when he's standing right in front of them before. The Olympians mostly seemed done in by taxi luck, even though they could speak Spanish. That does bring to mind a previous season's winners Nat & Kat, the anesthesiologists. I remember them saying in an interview they spent time at the start of each new city vetting their cab driver if they rode a cab, to make sure they could communicate with them and that they seemed to know what they were doing. I think most teams in TAR's history just jump into the first available cab.

    The league is at least discussing the idea of a playoff bubble in warm weather cities, so frigid Buffalo and Green Bay may not be the advantage it usually is. Beyond that, I'd expect that health and Covid availability will be a big part of who wins the season, perhaps the biggest part. Whoever looks strong now could be undone by a breakout during the playoffs. I don't think they'd delay an entire playoff round if, say, one team got three cases to key players before a game. Tough luck for them.

    Such is the 2020 Jets season that beating them by only 24 points cost Ryan Fitzpatrick his job.
  11. Speaking of podcasts, there's now an official Taskmaster Podcast hosted by Series 9's Ed Gamble with a different guest every week. It appears they'll recap and comment upon the newest episode every episode. One nugget about process. In the cases in which a contestant needs to obtain something to complete a task, they'll stop the clock on that task and they'll do another task while someone on staff will get the thing.
  12. If I were to cast an American actor to play Taskmaster, I would pick John Hodgman. It plays right into his persona as a longtime fake expert on The Daily Show and his Judge John Hodgman podcast where he rules over petty disagreements. He's good with quips and wielding pretend power and having strong opinions on unimportant issues. Anyone who can keep the "Is a Hot Dog a Sandwich?" argument alive for so long would do well as Taskmaster.

    The Jets should be the franchise that brings about relegation. Create a lower league and stick them there until they can earn their way to the big leagues.
  14. You mean TAR dabbles in occasional Cultural stereotypes and cliches? Heaven forbid! <looks at show in Japanese game show>
  15. Is Season 10 only available for viewing in the UK at the moment? BTW, The 2-part Champion of Champion series debuted on the Taskmaster's Official YouTube channel in the past few weeks. We're going to look back on things filmed during the pandemic in bewilderment at the random measures and half-measures taken and not taken. I actually wasn't aware that this season was filmed during the pandemic. The set up of the show does lend itself to pandemic filming since much of it is one person doing a task at a time. I wonder if we'll still have team tasks this series?
