  1. Winter of Discontent: The 2017-18 NHL Season

    I'm sure you met some true Super Yinzers when the Pens came to town.

    Oh...I see. Okay, my mistake. Sorry. I read it out if context. My bad. So, back to football.

    So, if you have a problem with people cheering a bunch of criminals, and as you pointed out that is a real reason to boycott a team, then why do you still cheer on your Bengals? As for Steeler fans, yeah, a bunch overreacted to the situation that they fully didn't understand and some showed their true colors. I knew there was more to the situation at hand and I was fine with how they had planned it and even how it was executed. As for Kaepernick? He doesn't bother me at all. In fact, I think he has done more good by not playing than he would actually playing...well sitting on the bench. Also, I have a ton of mirrors in my house, and I can look into them at any time and feel fine.

    See my reply to Crabcake47.

    Cause you know this might actually happen.

    You hate us 'cause you ain't us.

    Well, we have 80 more games to improve. I'm sure the team will look back on this game and say to themselves, as they skate around a Western Conference teams arena hoisting The Cup for a third straight season, "Hey, remember when the Blackhawks scored 10 on us?".

    Oh my garsh no...never approach a Buckeye with a pitchfork. It may lead to a hoedown, or a square dance.

    It's in the broadcast contract on page 134 subsection B paragraph 3...The Kraft/Jones agreement....yeah, pretty much.

    Soooo...what racial injustices did Kaepernick bring to light that weren't already known? BTW, your Bengals rank #3 in the NFL for number of arrests (44) since 2000. The Bengals currently employ Adam Jones, who has the most arrests of any NFL player since 2000 (10) and was even arrested earlier this year for poking a security guard in the eye. They also employed the player with the third most arrests since 2000, Chris Henry (6), who passed away in 2009. Overall, the Bengals have had nine assaults, nine DUIs and six domestic violence cases over the past 17 years. Moral of this story is don't go throwing stone footballs when your team plays in a glass stadium.

    Actually, he was given the same opportunity to sign with a team as Vick, in this case the Ravens, but Kaepernick's stupid girlfriend had to go and tweet a racist comment about NFL owners and the Ravens backed away from the "circus" that they saw coming down the street. Say what you want about his stats, or why you think Kaepernick is not suiting up on Sunday. The facts are that Kaepernick put himself in this situation with the decisions HE made.
  12. Why root for the home team?

    I get this a lot! I was born in Ohio and lived in Ohio most of my life (around the Dayton area) and people ask me, "Why the Steelers? You're in Bengal Country!" Or, "Why the Pirates?", and so on, and so on. The main reason being is my parents are both from Pennsylvania (Dad from Johnstown and Mom from the Punxsutawney Metropolitan Area). All my Dad would talk about is Steelers football (it helped that he, along with his brothers and his Dad, worked in the Steel Mills in Johnstown) and Pirates baseball. When we would go "home" to Pennsylvania to visit family, that is all my relatives would talk about. I also had an Aunt who is a diehard Penguins fan. You can't go wrong with family and I always felt my roots were in Pennsylvania and not in Ohio. It also helped that I was born in the 70's, so I remember the 4 Super Bowls the Steelers won, the We Are Family Pirates World Series, and Pitt football being National Champs. I consider myself to be somewhat blessed as a sports fan for the teams I follow. When one falls off the competitive map there is another to pull Pittsburgh sports fan through the ruff times.

    Yeah, we've always had a problem with Da Bearz. I just don't understand it.

    Oh no, I'm not saying that the USSF has done nothing, and you are right about what Gulanti has done in the past, but I'm just expressing how I can see where Eric is coming from as it feels like the state of soccer in the US is stuck with no real plans as to what direction we are headed. Maybe this is what Gulanti needs to make some of the changes necessary to get the US in a better position not just in competing with other pro leagues here in the states but with other countries on a global stage.
