    ESPN Is Pathetic

    I watched one MNF game this year, and he horribly over- annunciated JJ Arcega-Whiteside's last name every time he said it.

    How to find V&N?

    I can't seem to find it, either. There was a thread I was following closely that was likely moved there. Can someone help? (Will also wade in very gently)

    Bye week / Eagles chatter

    The Eagles are a mediocre team that is occasionally capable of punching above their weight. They won't do that against the Patriots. The offense has gotten nothing from their starting WR so Wentz has been reduced to a game manager. Jeffery is now a mediocre 13m possession WR who dropped 3...

    Baseball Is Broken (off the field/labor relations etc.)

    That way can work, but I think the best way to do that is to give the 5 teams that miss the playoffs each a 20% chance at the 1st overall pick (or even stagger the odds in favor of the team that just misses). They can hold a draft lottery like the other sports. Then, the worst team gets the 6th...
