    Russia banned from Olympics and World Cup

    Well then... They do get to compete in the Euro Championships next year, as St. Petersburg is hosting games. Seems weird to give them an exemption because of that.

    Crystal Palace 2019-20, spinning their wheels

    If I'm remembering right, this is Palace's 7th consecutive season in the top flight, the longest run in their history. Despite relegation battles at one point or another in pretty much all of those seasons, they have always found a way to get it done. That said, for the first time I can...

    March 9 Weekend - PALACE and Brighton to start...

    Here we go! Let's give the Seagulls something to worry about. Is it just me and @dirtynine awake for this? Also, I asked this last week, but as an American, should I feel as ridiculous as I do saying dArby instead of dErby? And already a yellow card 10 seconds for a nasty tackle on Luka and...

    Mac Won't Recognize Audio CDs

    I bought a couple of CDs recently. I tried to rip them with my old iMac (circa 2010). I'm running Sierra version 10.12.6. The computer would not recognize either one, and thought they were blank discs. In finder, they show as Untitled, with the black and yellow circle. They are commercial...

    December 1-2 Gamethread

    Good start in the jkempa house, as Union Berlin defeated Darmstadt 3-1 on what I thought was a hat trick by Sebastian Andersson, but they apparently called one an own goal. I didn’t see it that way, but whatever. Still undefeated and pushing for promotion (knocking wood). Now Palace and Burnley...

    Breakfast with Zaha: 2018-19 Crystal Palace

    I also considered, "For fuck's sake, please don't give me another heart attack this year for the love of all that's holy and good." Starting this one a little late this year, but in a good mood after a win against Fulham to start the season (and a perfect pre-season campaign), a new 5 year deal...

    RIP Dwight Clark

    Dwight Clark dead at 61. Thanks for my first happy sports memory (that I still remember anyway).

    May 4 - 9 Gameweek

    Afyet yesterday’s upset by Brighton over MU, assuring the Seagulls’ safety, Saturday starts with Stoke fighting for survival against Palace. A draw keeps them mathematically alive, but a win by Palace puts the nail in Stoke’s coffin. Edit: is it weird that only Stoke are walking out with kids...

    March 31 Gamethread

    I’ll get the jkempa vs. 50% of the board fixture week going because I’m 8 hours ahead of most of you and excited to watch a live PL game (complete with actual beer) for the first time in a few weeks. Well I guess I watched the Chelsea game, but I really don’t remember that for, well, reasons...

    March 17 GW

    Very abbreviated but so, so, so nice to have Wilf and Sakho and Cabaye back. 1-0 good guys after a goal off a rebound from Tomkins. Critical match for Palace And Charlie Adam sent off on a questionable call for the Stoke/Everton game in snowy Stoke.

    VPN trouble? Or something else?

    I am trying to watch the Olympics from overseas. I have a VPN set up on my Mac (Express VPN) and using a friend's Fios account to watch. I had no problem watching a soccer game the other day using NBC Sports Gold (subscription service), but when I log into the NBC Olympics website with my...

    NBC Sports Gold Question

    Tomorrow is the big Brighton - Crystal Palace match. This will be the first time they have met in the Premier League, and the first time I will see them play each other. The problem is that I have to work. The game is on the NBC Sports Gold app, which I have. I expect to be home tomorrow around...

    Oswald Commission - Russian Doping

    I started this thread to talk about skeleton, as that's what I know. But turns out there is more. This is a pretty big deal. Four Russian competitors from the Sochi Olympics were banned for life from the sport. This includes gold medalist Aleksandr Tretyakov and bronze medalist Elena...

    Yahoo Mail Missing From Folders

    I still use Yahoo Mail, mostly because I've used for about 20 years and didn't feel like changing my email address. I have a number of folders where I have been storing legal documents and other important files. I tried to access one of them from my iPhone this morning, and the email would...

    World Cup Tickets

    The application process for World Cup tickets has begun if anyone is interested. I went in 2014, and it was probably the coolest sporting experience I've ever seen and I vowed to go back every time I could. It's like the Super...

    Week 2Gamethread

    Figured someone would have started this for Man U's thrashing of Swansea. But now Liverpool-Palace in a battle of two teams that couldn't defend a set piece if their lives depended on it. I am not sold on this 3-4-3, and even more surprised to see Joel Ward, who was horribly exposed last...

    FIFA 18

    The new FIFA release date is September 29, and September 26 if you purchase special Ronaldo edition. I, for some unknown reason, was selected to play the beta test. I'm really not very good. I've played it a bit, and finally had my first online game last night. It plays a lot like the 2017...

    Trip Reports

    A few people had written trip reports in one of the other threads (I Want To Go To A Match In Europe), but I figured we may as well have a thread dedicated to people's trips to new stadiums. If one of the mods wants to move the old content from that thread into here, I think it could be a good...

    2017-18 Crystal Palace, Riding the Manager Merry Go-Round

    Holloway Pulis Warnock Pardew Allardyce (with a liberal sprinkling of Millen in between) de Boer? Seems like a pretty good hiring for Palace. Their BBS seems pretty positive on de Boer. Anyone here have much to add on him?
