    Stanley Cup Final

    Why the hell did not a single official actually signal a goal for a puck literally stuck inside the net?

    Stanley Cup Final

    I can look past the trips, but those non-calls for boarding are dangerous. That's the kind of shit that just needs to get whistled out if the game.

    Josh Donaldson Suspended for Making Racist Comment

    They covered this on MLBN last night and one of the analysts made a really good point saying something along the lines of "If you realize you made a mistake and you're actually sorry for it, you dont appeal the suspension."

    Robo strikezone: Not as simple as you think -- Baseball Prospectus

    That was actually my thought as well. There's nothing stopping them from being there and being "in the zone" and just making the calls the computer makes in case it doesnt. And you have to imagine there will be plenty of "i would have called that a strike, huh..." and vice versa.

    Robo strikezone: Not as simple as you think -- Baseball Prospectus

    The problem is the consistency. You would need to see how many balls and strikes are called for the same location. If the Ump is "giving them the bottom" (or whatever arbitrary non-balls they decide to call that day) but not consistently, then the hitters and pitchers cannot make appropriate...

    Youth Hockey - catch all

    As a volunteer who coached Learn to Skate through Peewee I agree with this wholeheartedly. The USA Hockey certifications have a tiny section on Goalie. There is a whole, other certification path focused on Goalie development.

    Pace of Play, Time of Game, and Pitch Clocks

    I found this article that seems to list the changes to pick-offs: https://www.mlb.com/news/baseball-rule-changes-tested-in-minor-leagues-in-2021 Here are the relevant parts: I dont know if thats exactly what Davidson was referring to, but those rules seem like they might need some tweaking...

    Youth Hockey - catch all

    I think the playing up vs down really depends a lot on the individual skater and also the level of play. My son has been a perennial A/B bubble kid on his first years at a given level and at Squirts he was the standout kid on the lower level team and it did wonders for his confidence. Peewee...

    April MLB Game Thread

    I mean yes that pitch is a ball, but it's nowhere near the most egregiously bad call we've seen mentioned the last couple weeks.

    Youth Hockey - catch all

    I guess it depends how serious you think he will want to take it and if you think he has some aptitude for it. USA Hockey puts age limits on what ages can play together and many organizations do not like to color outside those lines. The issue I've seen in my area with kids that start super...

    April MLB Game Thread

    I've got no dog either, I just see it differently. Voit didnt make much of an effort to slide and it seemed he came down and strongly followed through after making contact with the catcher's head.

    I get that contact was going to happen, but are none of you seeing the 2-handed slam of the catchers head into the ground as Voit comes through? I'm sorry, I see this as both dirty and dangerous

    Ya, the new rules at the very least state you have to maintain contact with the base throughout the slide.

    AppleTV Issues on Roku Premier

    Correct on all counts. Both connected to same single wireless network with no reconfiguring done during switch. Just unplugged and moved each.

    AppleTV Issues on Roku Premier

    The plot thickens. So I decided to swap Roku from downstairs to living room, and now the one that had the problems in the living room works fine downstairs, while the one from downstairs now won't play the videos that we're giving me problems upstairs. The trick of starting the video on...

    Interpersonal player battles/bullying

    Does the team have any kind of "code of conduct" or other "Team rules" document that all players/parents have to sign/acknowledge at the beginning of a year/season? If so, go back over it and find out what the "documented" repercussions are for this type of behavior, if there are any. At the...
