  1. 2018 NBA Post Season

    The Raptors lost Game 3, but they didn't lose Game 4; the refs won Game 4.
  2. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    Raps responded today with a solid defensive effort. 1st place all but locked up. I think they'll need the home court advantage, though. They play like garbage in both Boston and Lebron City Cleveland.
  3. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    Holy cow. Raptors currently in 1st place in the East. What planet am I on?
  4. 2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

    Baa means no, Tom. That's all I'll say.
  5. Why root for the home team?

    Because if I don't, nobody else will. The Sudbury Wolves are in a rebuilding phase. We're getting a new arena built at the request of the new team owner, which will (sadly) cost taxpayers at least $100 million, and go on an undeveloped parcel of land which will need more taxpayer dollars to fund transit infrastructure. The on-ice team is in a rebuilding mode, but since there are no other major sports within a 4-hour drive, most hockey fans here support Toronto or Montreal (Sudbury is 30% Francophone).
  6. Football and CTE

    I'll agree with everything you said. But I'll add that there are certainly other less-contact sports that could achieve the same bonding, teamwork, goal-setting benchmarks that football could, as well. I didn't even play a "sport"; I was on the improv team all through high school. Strangely enough, though, I'm pretty sure one teammate of mine got a concussion after being held, and then dropped by another member of the team during a practice; and I'm sure we've all run into each other while acting out scenes at least once.

    Uh oh. Politics thread Part Deux?
  8. The Pointless Realignment Outpost

    When I was doing my organizing, I wanted to make sure the divisions had some degree of geographical accuracy. All of those colleges are in the Dallas area. It was a note for myself.
  9. 2016-17 NBA Season

    What's crazy is that they have an outside shot at 1st place. Sure, Boston and Cleveland have to lose their final games, but it's possible in theory! Edit: Probably not. Cleveland already won the season series. Oh, well. Here's hoping they continue to falter.
  10. The Pointless Realignment Outpost

    So, I just read that the Ivy League, the last holdout for staging their own playoff champion in basketball, will hold a playoff for their basketball champions. This gives a chance to simplify the qualification structure for the NCAA Tournament. I never liked the idea of "at-large" bids. I think that the 32 champs and 32 runners-up should qualify. It's very simple, and does away with controversial selection.

    Okiedoke. Well, I used Excel so that it formatted with nice straight lines and pretty colours.
  12. The Pointless Realignment Outpost

    Is this strikingly similar to the realignment you posted? I swear I just made this myself. I did it in Excel.
  13. The Pointless Realignment Outpost

    (only way to make it work) Excuse the cheekiness, but I think this could happen instead.
  14. The Pointless Realignment Outpost

    I've been sitting on this for a little bit. I thought posting a picture was easier.
