  1. I guess I get why people are upset about the format of the All-Star Game, however in my opinion the All-Star weekend and game is to recognize players and to entertain fans.  It’s the middle of the season and I don’t think any player is going to risk injury or health trying to make the playoffs and get a chance to win the Stanley Cup and no format change short of forcing players to have to make one hit before they shoot is going to change that.     The only way I see an All-Star Game able to played like a regular season or playoff game (which to me isn’t necessary, but for kicks...) is to play it after the Stanley Cup Playoffs before Free Agency/Trades begin.  I might make a change of 2-30min halves and if tied after Regulation, play one full ten minute period of 4-on-4 hockey, who ever is ahead at the end of the ten minutes win. If still tied, then to a five-player each side shootout. You can make an incentive of $$ and/or suspend players for  3-4 games for the up coming season if they choose not participate, unless they are truly injured, etc. Yet many people think it’s stupid for players to be suspended probably because the Stanley Cup is more important than the All-Star Game in the middle of the Season.    
  2. Watching the intros -Both the Pacific and Central are wearing black as the home Western Teams and the Metro and Atlantic divisions are wearing white for the road Eastern Teams which makes sense so the final will have one team of each, but how are you going to tell them apart when they play each other in the first two games?   Edit: Nevermind I’m apparently not awake yet...
  3. I know the 3-on-3 is a gimmick, but if there was ever an actual place for the gimmick it would be at the All-Star Game.  Plus, it’s intriguing enough for me to turn on the tv and watch it. Which is more that can be said for the NFL Pro “Subs" Bowl.     I’m just wondering if they'll let Goalies will change on the fly

    Does anyone else think Sean Astin look the same as he did in Rudy, with maybe the exception of a little gray in his hair. Okay, so maybe not exactly as he did in the movie but pretty good family genetics (or makeup artist ) This MSU/Bama game could end in a 3-2 Final.

    I’m not talking unsportmanlike penalties - those were warranted. I’m talking sideline warnings/interference, etc. Maybe there hasn’t been that many penalties, it just seems that I’ve seen teams are lined up ready for the next stop and officials are having a huddle party with a flag that was thrown so late that you’ve got Mayfield or Watson turning around and going “What’s the hold-up?” and there’s a sideline warning - which on the replay looked like there wasn’t anything as did the Sideline interference on Clemson. I think I’m just being a lot harsher on officials after last night’s Wisconsin-USC game when Wisconsin’s McEvoy was called out of bounds and the official guessed that he went out of bounds instead of letting the play continue and then change it on the review if needed. That irked me.

    Is it me or is this officiating crew looking a little too hard for penalties (many of them phantom calls) to call. Are they seriously that bored?
  7. I know some are saying Sean Payton and Drew Brees to Philadelphia but a dark horse coaching candidate might be, K.C. Keeler. He may not have NFL experience, let alone D-IA (FBS) experience and Lurie might shy away from a second straight HC with no experience after Chip Kelly. However, Keeler is that hometown guy ( Emmaus, PA) and is no-nonsense guy but treats his players as human beings. I would say Keeler knows the and probably could handle the passionate and volatile nature of many Eagles fans than most. Of course Keeler seems happy and Sam Houston, so... (Yes, I’ve been thinking a little too hard - that’s never good)
  8. Well, as a Sharks fan it’s the Sharks organization’s own fault for letting their AHL team play in the same arena. Besides, the ice at the Tank has never been great. Team Teal did get the win tonight 4-2. The Big Pavelski with two great goals.

    Another missed fake special teams play because the Evil Empire is too busy showing a replay... C’mon man!!

    Wow. 35-0 in first Quarter. BYU misses FG... ESPN says Will Grier to transfer from Florida. So Treon Harris vs Grady? http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/14399127/will-grier-transfer-florida-gators-amid-one-year-suspension
  11. Haven't really followed prep football this much in a while, but every once in a while, I'll peek at Maxpreps and Calpreps to see how De La Salle, CCS and Pac-5 teams are doing. This year they're going bonkers with Bowl Games!! For those that don't know, California has no true high school state playoff tournament. The other state in the same boat is New Jersey. What California does have is "Bowl Games". For the last few years the state has increased the number of bowl games going from 1-3-5 and then last couple of years they did Regional Bowl Games. This year the CIF has expanded the Regional Bowl Games to 14 in the North and 13 in the South. Divisions are as follows: Open 1AA and 1A 2AA and 2A 3AA and 3A 4AA and 4A 5AA and 5A Open: Small Schools (enrollment of <1250) 6AA: Three teams qualify, with one playing the winner of the play-in game (Stone Ridge Christian vs Mission-SF). Each Division (1AA-Open Small) above will have 4 teams above (2 North and 2 South). The top team in the North (projected: De La Salle) and top team in the South (projected: winner of Centennial (Corona)/St. John Bosco) will be placed in a SBG and will have no regional. Here are the number of qualifiers get per section: North Coast - 5; Central Section - 6; Central Coast - 5; Northern - 4; Oakland -1; SF - 1; Sac-Joaquin - 7; Southern - 13; LA City - 3; San Diego - 6. Central Section's Divisions 1, 3, 5 will be placed in the north. Central Section Divisions: 2, 4, 6 will be in the South. The CIF Bowl Selection Committee will make sure Central Sections do not play each other in a Championship Bowl Game. Two teams from will be placed into each grouping. Only Section Division champs are eligible, except for the CCS (Central Coast) which will send it's three Open Division Champs and two of the three runners-up. So the CCS knows 4/5 teams going: Bellarmine, St. Francis, Oak Grove and Milpitas are locked in. The Winner of the Open III Section championship between Riordan and Sacred Heart Prep will be the 5th spot. The winners of the Regional Bowl Games will face the North-South opponent from the same classification. Personally, I think it's much less convoluted to just have a state playoff, but because California is run by somewhat independent Sections and eliminating the sectional playoffs seems to be a no go when discussing a potential state playoff. Anyway, while I didn't expect to spend this much time into prep football, it's somewhat exciting and now after trying to do my own mock state playoff I'm now way more invested than I should be. At least my Alma mater has a chance to go bowling. Let me know if you need clarity on this - because as can you see I've studied this quite a bit I'll post the projected matchups in a little bit. Here's the qualification bylaws, etc.

    Wow. Not to be pessimistic (which means I'm going to be): So next season all personal foul penalties and pass interference will be either reviewable and/or challengeable. Though that penalty gave GB the chance for an extra play and while I'm pretty sure Packers players boxed out, I saw one of the Lions defenders almost willingly go behind the receivers - if you give them the opportunity to create a wall... So when will we'll see a State Farm Rodgers & Rodgers discount double-check commercial coming.

    Golden State beat Sacramento 120-101. Warriors now 18-0 on the season. Now they begin a seven game road trip, first in SLC, then Charlotte where the Hornets will honor Dell Curry.
  14. Win six in a row, on a perfect road trip, then you come home and play your worst game of the season...smh. If it wasn't for Jones 'Hawks probably would have won the game 10-2
  15. 2015 NFL Season-Now with Playoff Talk

    The officiating was awful and Why keep the Bills from running a play while you announce the result - if you're going to announce something stop the clock until your done and then wind it. Also, Patriots might have had a TD on the inadvertent whistle and then the whistle was blown while the ball was in the air which would have been replay of the previous down and the personal foul penalty on Ryan would have been nullified. I wasn't rooting for any team more or less and I was screaming at the refs in the TV it was bad - not replacement refs bad, but not much better.
