  1. All the top QBs get more calls with late hits than other QBs. Not just Brady. We know it happens, we have seen it. Its not just calling him by name. Its a confirmation of the reality we all know exists. I saw multiple hits over the weekend on Jacoby Brissett and even one on Mariotta last night where if that is not just Brady but Rodgers or Brees, there is no doubt a flag is getting thrown Great players get the benefit of the doubt on calls. And its not just the NFL. NBA you see it even worse
  2. The Thursday night football crapfest continues. What on earth on these coaches thinking with these decisions? You skip the chance for a FG in the 3rd quarter down 14-0, 4th and goal from the 6. Jags next possession, FG, up by 3 possessions. THEN the Jags return the favor, up 20-7 and you don't kick the FG to go up by 16. Yes technically that is two possessions, but big difference between two TDs and extra points to win to high vs. two FG AND two 2-point conversions just to tie. THEN, still down by 13 and time left, the Titans basically say it doesn't matter anyway, fir
  3. What a crappy system. Hard to believe that is still allowed in this day and age. Never thought too deeply about it but wonder just legally how that came about and is justified. Actually I can imagine how it started and I am sure it is deeply rooted in racism and sexism. I guess I find it more surprising the system continues. I know there are home owner boards to regulate what you can and cannot have in your yard, house, etc everywhere, but no one is telling them you can't live here because they don't like you
  4. Saw this movie over the weekend with my son I have not read the book or seen the first movie, but found this one pretty enjoyable. Though I did not find it particularly scary. Had scary scenes but nothing particularly memorable or horrifying. Loved Hader as always. Seems like a mash up of a scary Stand by Me follow up and Stranger Things, though I realize this predates both those I believe and its mixing eras to say that. thought the writing in the flesh on the stomach was pretty funny. "NOoooooo........don't ruin my fabulous new gratuitous abs I am showing off!!!!"
  5. Here is one that I don't know if its true or not : Do you really have to interview in front of some tenant board in order to buy or sometimes even obtain an apartment in NYC? Tends to happen all the time on TV. Seinfeld and 30 Rock come to mind first, but others I know use it as well.
  6. Going to be a "race" between Miami and Carolina I think in the tanking category I think Cam is done, will never be the same, time to move on from him. I don't see how Miami wins a game this year though. At this pace Miami will be outscored on the year approximately 800-50.
  7. How can such smart people be so bad at game theory and figuring what to bet on FJ. Champ should have lost this one. As mentioned 3rd place should have bet nothing AND the second place person should have bet like $4000-$5000, enough to win if he gets it right and the champion misses it AND enough to win if they both get it wrong. Then he is still ahead of the 3rd place person as well, she was far enough behind she wasn't going to catch him even if she got it right and didn't matter in this scenario. Betting all his money was just stupid. He had to have the champ miss FJ to win, if the
  8. Setback for Alex https://www.latimes.com/entertainment-arts/tv/story/2019-09-17/alex-trebek-pancreatic-cancer-setback
  9. New year, same old Browns. Thumped by an expected to be mediocre Titans team Colts blew the game today in SD. Vinatieri suddenly can't hit a FG. On the plus side, Jacoby Brissett looked great. He was not the reason for the loss, not by a long shot. Miami Dolphins, knew they'd be bad, but THAT bad? Game was over by the end of the first quarter I totally think AB did this to get on the Pats. And the Pats knew it. Is there anything more appropriate in the 100th year of the league than the Lions and Cardinal, arguably the two worst franchises in league history, tying in
  10. So its OK to boo Djokovic even though he was actually injured and trying to play, for several sets, even though that is an individual sport and not a team sport and he answers basically only to himself But you can't boo Luck, even though he quit on the team two weeks before the start of the season, and really there is no immediately compelling physical injury or reason he has to physically retire right now, he has not even tried to play this preseason or this year, not even tried to practice? His claim of a "calf injury" for months seems to be completely bogus and no doctor can seemingly
  11. The season picked up right where it left off with the superbowl A dull kicking match where the first team to get in the end zone wins You have to be crushed if you are a bears fan. You hold the Packers and Rodgers to 10 points and you lose by a TD? ANd Trubisky badly missed on some throws. That will be the narrative for the season for them. Is Trubisky good enough? After last night, the answer so far early in the season is, "No".
  12. Finally back tonight My Colts related Luck booing response got locked up twice, so I am late to that, but the fans had good reason for booing and it doesn't mean they don't like or appreciate Luck. He is not being forced into retirement by injuries, like this is being portrayed. He is just not into the game and choosing not to play any longer. ANd that is his choice he can make, but he is leaving a team with legitimate SB aspirations and that was set to be a contender for the next 5-10 years with what they have in place in the organization. Just walked away from it all. No Colts
  13. And he is dead now. I forgot he died a few years ago.
  14. Yes and we don't really know where that idea came from about why he put the boy on the cross, if that is true about him being placed there to try and bring him back to life, or just what his mom is saying, if he actually told her that, etc. We never here it from him. And in regard to Wayne Williams guilt/innocence, if the murders truly did stop after he was arrested, seems pretty good circumstantial evidence of his guilt with some of them.
  15. Female killers, especially middle class suburban white ones, are rare, statistically, so I can understand the media fascination. Basically what this team was interested in as well, how Manson turned them and what became their motivation A white male killer from Texas? Seem to be a dime a dozen, especially based on how many people Texas executes each year. On the note though of who they should be speaking to in terms of murderers, I don't recall from season one why it is they supposedly focus on sexual related offenders. However, that seems like a rather narrow focus and hope that
