    Global Football Odds & Ends

    Reuters is burying the lede. The deal with CBS was announced months ago, but Turner backed out of the remainder of their deal. I'm assuming their deal was a loser since they didn't fight to keep the right and just wanted out ASAP. So CBS takes over when the current tournament resumes next month...

    Considering he hasn’t exactly been lacking wins ever since, wouldn’t SOSH be the injured Ewing in this analogy?

    Footy broadcasting - What do we have?

    I've used it the last few days on Apple TV. It works, but there are glitches in the stream vs. NBCSN on Youtube.

    Footy broadcasting - What do we have?

    CBS is the next broadcaster. It's just a question of who will serve as a bridge until that deal starts in 14 months. I think they should just jump on it now.

    Rethinking Barstool?

    To beat a dead horse, it's Big Cat. He does so many little things during the streams that are laugh out loud funny. The names he creates for the players are hall of fame. A pass rusher named Von Vaughn is so obvious that it's shocking it hasn't happened already.

    Rethinking Barstool?

    While Duggs can't play a defense that makes him "uncomfortable", he did stick with the ground game and let Rico* lead the Vols to the title. *The same Rico Burgerton who Duggs threw under the bus after last season's title loss.

    La Liga 2019-2020: Barca's title to lose?

    In our last trip to Portugal in 2013 my wife (who is a morning person) was amused to see town squares full of families at midnight, but ghost towns at 7 AM.

    To be fair, if Rico had caught that pass it's a totally different game.

    Thoughts about media types who don't have their own threads

    Marchand’s column indicates they were negotiating and couldn’t agree on a contract. Firing has its own connotation and it is typically outside of negotiations falling apart.
