    2019 Patriots: Post-SB Roster Thread

    That's still only for non-bonus money though, right? Which is a much lower % of total compensation than other sports, I believe.

    2019 Patriots: Post-SB Roster Thread

    Is this true in football? I know we've had this discussion ad nauseam in baseball, but in that case, games are a very high % of team-related activities, so players are probably spending close to 50% of their work related time out of state. In football, if a player spends all week practicing in...

    The Rosen Thread

    With the caveat that this far out a massive number of things can change... it seems likely that Fromm, Tagovailoa, and Hebert could all be top 5 picks next year. Is the class deep after those 3? If not, this strategy only really works if are pretty sure you will be picking right at the top.

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    This is exactly the situation I'm in. I'm now going to be paying ~$90/mo ($40/mo internet only plan from comcast + YTTV). FIOS keeps offering a 2-year deal for cable+gigabit internet for $80/mo, which sounds great, except I'd also have to get 2-3 cable boxes, rent their router, plus fees, etc...

    We're Onto the NFL Draft (2019 Prospect Thread)

    it's really hard to find good data summarizing this, but I feel like the league has kind of caught up to this particular gambit. Almost all recent 1st round pick trades have either been to get an established player back, or have returned at least one other 1st rounded (e.g., trade up/down, or 2...

    Major League Soccer 2019: Your Humble Local League

    It would be great to have a dedicated Revs thread. Maybe this is the year we finally get one. Perhaps they can put it in Somerville, or South Boston, or Dorchester, or Cambridge Crossing.

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    I couldn't get verizon to budge when I downgraded, so I ended up switching to a $40/mo internet-only plan from comcast. When the 12 months is up, i'll switch back to verizon if comcast tries to raise it. But the service has been fine.

    Weird pop-up when watching a DVD on my tv

    Do you live in an apartment building, or townhouse, or something with nearby neighbors? Perhaps someone was trying to pair their phone with their TV, and selected the wrong one (yours) from the list?

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    I live in Pittsburgh, but set my youtube tv account up while visiting family in VT last summer. I get all VT channels (CBS/ABC/NBC/Fox, NESN, NBC sports Boston, etc) on our Rokus here (two older ones and one newer one). When I access on my phone I get local Pittsburgh networks. Web browser...

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    Depends on the device. If you're using something without location services, or if you disable/block them, then it defaults to your home zip code. So if you're using Chrome, and block it when it asks for your location, it'll assume in NH (or perhaps wherever you were last, I'm not sure) and...

    NBA Trade Deadline Game Thread

    I have no idea if it's allowed-- but the idea would be you send it to NOP if it doesn't convey to Boston (i.e., if it IS in the lottery, not unless it's in the lottery). (I miswrote the initial idea... it would be 13-30 protected, not 1-12 protected). But yeah, my point is that I don't think...

    NBA Trade Deadline Game Thread

    This gets LAC closer to being in the AD sweepstakes, but I don't see them there yet. The only two young assets they have are Shai and Shamet, and neither is even at the level of Ball yet. The best package they could really do is something like Shai, Shamet, the MIA pick, and their own pick...

    Super Bowl LIII - We’re on to Los Angeles (again)

    He was great, but Allen made his job really easy on a couple of those punts.

    Super Bowl LIII - We’re on to Los Angeles (again)

    That's... not a thing. But, maybe it will help them channel from the upside down.

    Porzingis to Dallas

    I really don't get Porzingis. Is he actually a guaranteed max player? I get the great outside shooting, but that's usually valuable on a big man because you assume they do the regular big man stuff well, but KP doesn't rebound, isn't a great interior defender (though he does get a lot of...

    Anthony Davis: No Loyalty

    They'd have to include something like Chandler+a bit (korkmaz?) to make the salaries work. Still, I think if Fultz had panned out, this would be a real possibility. As is, I'm not sure about a team constructed around Butler/Davis/Embiid and then relying on Landry Shamet (as decent as he's...

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    I watched last night's new episode of the good place a few hours after it aired and was able to fast forward through ads.

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    My impression is close to Joe Sixpack's, but not that it's network dependent, rather that the long ads were when you were watching something "on demand", i.e., a show you hadn't previously added to your library, but that if you had added it to your library before it aired, then you're watching...
