    Introducing the Alliance of American Football

    Really surprised so many people want this league to fail. Every other major sport has some form of minor league system, but this is a “joke” or a bad idea? I don’t get it. For those who have had their fill of football...don’t watch it. Sure the AAF didn’t dot every ‘I’ and cross every ‘T’ when it came to a game plan, but It looks a hell of a lot more thought out than 99% percent of the other start up attempts. I bought tickets for the April 6th game in San Antonio and thinking positively there will be a game to go to.

    Introducing the Alliance of American Football

    I like it, so far, but it feels strange without kickoffs. I think the field position should at least have a chance to be improved (or worsened) by the returner’s decision. Plus you never know when someone is going to bust one.

    Daryl Reaugh just called Nashville’s uniforms “Radioactive cat urine yellow.”

    North American Pro Soccer 2019

    Sorry, but many here had no clue what was going on. No pretending at all. We were told we might get a soccer team..people got excited...then many realized we might be, again "stealing" someone else's team, which is never a good feeling. I'll reiterate what I said before, a lot of these behind-the-scences dealings, the Precourt group etc,. have nothing to do with the people of Austin.

    I’m not a huge soccer fan, to be fair, but I fail to see how this makes Austin a villain. Precourt and his ilk, apparently the city council and others made this arrangement, largely leaving the Austin populace out of everything. There were many rallies on both sides, and it became a regular story on the nightly news. No one was ever trying to “steal” Columbus, except maybe the Precourt group and I’m glad the situation worked out the way it did. Trust me the MLS will do well here. People who reject the “big-cityness” of Dallas and Houston, and aren’t drawn to the big 4 will line up to see something international and cultural. Surprised to hear Houston is lagging in attendance. I went to a match a few years ago and it seemed packed to me.

    NFL Playoffs: Super Bowl LIII

    Sister lives north of Philly and I visit quite a bit. My brother in law is an Eagle-hating Steeler fan who turned me on to WIP. It's happening.

    NFL Playoffs: Super Bowl LIII

    Love these Philly blowhards that bailed on their team mid season talking smack out of nowhere. Geaux Saints.

    2018 NFL Season

    That didn't define the game, (and I agree with your assessment of the call)... look at the stats. The Chargers got shafted way more than Philly

    2018 NFL Season

    I think Baker Mayfield is a sociopath.
  10. Can't wait to hear the excuses in Houston tomorrow. * SPOILER* It's never their fault.

    2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

    Ever been to a game at the Link? Urinating, car flipping idiots. If, God forbid, they win SB LII they'll have to fireproof the entire city.

    Worst possible Super Bowl. Usually I have team to pull for, or against. Not this year

    2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

    The Rams reminded me of the Panthers in SB 50. No sense of urgency. The whole “we’ll get ‘em when we turn it on” attitude was evident.
