    Commentators are Pathetic (except when they're not): Catch-all Thread

    Of course, when Scully finally spoke again he said, "In a year that has been so improbable, the impossible has happened!" A classic line. Scully was the best.

    Goodbye Gruden

    Also, after the Gruden fallout, Davis can't possibly promote Cable. The Raiders needs someone with a clean rep and, uh, Cable is not it.

    Tracking the rookie QBs

    A more complete comparison would also include sacks and rushing. Fields in particular has a horrific 16.3% sack rate, which has been a big part of his struggles (getting sacked 1/6th of the time is a problem). And a big part of Lance's value has come from his legs, he has 27 carries for 133...

    USMNT: Hold My Beer

    I was wondering if you'd show up in this thread. All credit to Panama, they played well and totally shut down any US attack. I don't think anyone here has hard feelings towards Panama supporters. And may your father's memory be for a blessing.

    USMNT: Hold My Beer

    They could have played another 40 minutes of stoppage time and it wouldn't have mattered. The U.S. never looked like scoring.

    Newcastle United 21-22: Bringing Liquified Coals to Newcastle

    There have been foreign owners in US sports. MIkhail Prohkorov owned the Nets for a while. The San Jose Sharks are owned by a German billionaire (Hasso Plattner). No state ownership though.

    CFB 2021 Week 6: (P)U Game

    What, no NBA team hired you straight out of college to do play-by-play? Isn't there less nepotism on the color side because those guys are mostly ex-players?

    USMNT: Hold My Beer

    Looked like a pretty clear DOGSO to me.

    Spurs 21/22: Go on, take the money and run!

    This was probably their best performance since the first game of the season. The good news was that Nuno learned from last week's first half disaster and didn't try the same tactics. The team has been so all over the map in the first part of the season in terms of lineups, tactics, players...

    Week 7

    Pretty blah game in North London. Spurs scored from their one well-worked chance. Other than that neither keeper has been threatened much. At least it's a much more solid performance from Spurs. The tactical issues from the Arsenal disaster have been corrected. But there still isn't much...

    Arsenal 21-22: Brexit FC

    Aging, injury-prone, overpaid attacking midfielder who ignores defensive responsibilities? Sounds tailor-made for Everton!

    Spurs 21/22: Go on, take the money and run!

    They hired Nuno because everyone else they wanted either turned them down or wanted too much money (or required a transfer fee) and Nuno was cheap and available. I think he's basically stopgap until they can find someone better.

    Spurs 21/22: Go on, take the money and run!

    I said this in the game thread, but the problem for all three goals was the same: way too much space between midfield and defense. Spurs were playing a very flat 4-3-3 and the gaps between the midfield 3 and the back 4 were enormous. The front 6 were pressing very high while the back 4 would...
