    Old guys playing in different eras

    A topic I think often about! 2 players that come to my mind: Arvydas Sabonis Yao Ming Yao didn't have much, if any, type of post-game until he worked with Patrick Ewing in the States. He took plenty of abuse down in the post. Yao would be much more of a mid-range and deep offensive player in...

    Arsenal 2017-18: Au Revoir, Arsene

    I've been following the transfer rumours of Lemar/Mbappé/Mahrez like mad all summer, specifically the first two. Is it ever hard not to get my hopes up... Also, OM are confident in Olivier Giroud coming: https://www.thescore.com/news/1330112

    12/3-12/4 Weekend Gamethread: El Classico and El PetroClassico

    Pretty crazy day for French soccer in Ligue 1. PSG handed their worst Ligue 1 defeat in 5 years with a 3:0 loss to Montpellier. Olympique Lyonnais-FC Metz match was abandoned after this happened...

    The Game Goat Thread: vs Seahawks

    The defence was massively disappointing tonight, but I also give a consideration to Chris Hogan, who looked disinterested at times. Two plays that stick out in my mind: his (lack of) blocking near the red zone earlier in the game during a play to Bennett -- if he had been blocking, it might've...

    Bruins Prospect News and Notes

    Kirk Luedeke with an article devoted solely to Jake DeBrusk; it is a nice read and makes one think of the full context of scouting. http://scoutingpost.com/2016/03/06/clearing-the-air-on-jake-debrusk/ I, like others, were left scratching their head when I heard his name called as the sandwich...

    Yeah, "pummel" was the wrong word. I really meant "destroy each other with cheap shots".

    Maybe now Zac Rinaldo and John Scott can pummel the shit out of each other, & then everybody wins.

    The Red Sox will retire Wade Boggs’ number on May 26

    I'm not sure why, but I'm rather annoyed that Boggs' number is retired before Dewey's. I was really hoping at some point that Dewey's number would be retired, & it seemed possible when the Sox lifted their qualifications for Pedro (although for a different reason), but with David Price most...

    Worst MLB Franchise of All Time

    Yeah, the Tampa Bay (Devil) Rays and the St. Louis Browns were the 1st 2 teams to come to mind. Browns had a .428 winning percentage (3414-4465-99) which would rank them dead last among active teams today (San Diego Padres and Tampa Bay Rays have current winning percentages of .464). We know...

    Bruins Reveal 2016 Winter Classic jerseys

    Mine despatched from the Pro Shop on Wednesday, & it arrived in the mail 2 days later (Friday) through FedEx. Included was a really cool box with Winter Classic stuff on it. Hopefully you get yours soon.

    RedZone just showed Manziel celebrating a facemask penalty like he passed a career milestone or something.

    Dombrowski: SP likely from FA. Which should we sign?

    Maeda is in the midst of a "Super 12" tournament right now, and it is still uncertain that he would be posted after the ending of the tournament. I am by no means a scout of any sort, but the consensus according to FanGraphs and MinorLeagueBall is that he has good consistent pitch mix, but he...

    EPL...educate me & help me pick a team

    André Ayew is awesome; I have his Swansea kit. Monaco sure seems tempting after doing some research. Maybe I choose them & 1 of Lyon/Marseille. Nice would be out if I follow Monaco though, as it seems they're rivals. And AS Monaco's stadium is a beaut...

    EPL...educate me & help me pick a team

    Thanks everyone for the replies. Looks like Marseille, Lyon, AS Monaco looking like strong possibilities. @soxfan121 I do plan on visiting the country next summer, but will not have time to attend any fixtures. Also, what's crazy, I chose Napoli for Serie A, & FC Barça for La Liga awhile back...

    EPL...educate me & help me pick a team

    Hope you guys will excuse the bump... I've been reading up on Ligue 1 teams since their 2015/16 season began. I've been conducting some research & have had difficulty finding a team. Marseilles, Lyon, Nice, Saint-Étienne all have drawn my interest, so far. Under no circumstances am I...

    2015 Hard Knocks: High Wattage

    I guess I could have a separate post to mention the "suits". Bob McNair has no sense of urgency, & Cal McNair, his son, is set to take his place. Cal McNair has become best friends with Rick Smith, & its hard for Houstonians to imagine seeing Smith fired. He's botched numerous drafts, most...

    2015 Hard Knocks: High Wattage

    The Texans are the local team that air where I'm from, & the D is indeed pathetic. Basically, they have 4-3 personnel, & are running a 3-4. Clowney should be at DE & not OLB. The rest of their LB corps is trash or washed up. The secondary has been a massive let down, with Kareem Jackson...
