  1. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    OF COURSE LeBron wins MVP.
  2. 2018 NASCAR Season Thread

    What is it with the white flag leaders and restrictor plate races? Last year, 3 of the 4 leaders with a lap to go didn't get to the checkered in front (Kyle Busch and Ryan Newman at Talladega, Kyle Larson at the Daytona 500). And the one other one- Stenhouse wasn't even on the front row when he won the July Daytona race.
  3. PyeongChang 2018

    Canada vs. US in Olympic women’s hockey is like Penguins/Capitals- Team A got a win one time, but Team B has won every other time.
  4. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    At least it would be something DIFFERENT
  5. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    LeBron's surrounded by 4 guys that have never won a meaningful game and suddenly Cleveland is already being treated like the '96 Bulls?
  6. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    I just hope we get a different dance partner if one of the usual suspects makes it back. Cavs/Spurs, Cavs/Thunder, Cavs/Rockets, Warriors/Spurs Rockets vs. Celtics/Raptors/Wizards.... anything but Cleveland/Golden State AGAIN
  7. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    If the Eagles can win the Super Bowl and the Astros can win the World Series.......... Sorry, but I'm not going to act as if the Cavs are entitled to the Finals just because they have a 33 year old who quite frankly at some point is going to feel some wear and tear from all his minutes.
  8. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    Let's see what happens when the Cavs play OKC before we give them a free pass to June.
  9. 2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

    Interesting choice of outfit for EDP, but considering the one time the Eagles wore those blue/yellow colors in a game..... they also scored 40+ points.
  10. 2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

    Legendary game.
  11. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Richmond Webb, a 7x Pro Bowler and 4x All Pro for the Miami Dolphins, played with the Cincinnati Bengals in 2001-2002
  12. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    Jason Hanson's final season with the Lions (2012) was the first year of the Nikefied DET unis.
  13. 2017-18 NCAA Football Thread

    You're right. I do complain too much. I'm just not a fan of seeing the same teams win too much. That's on me. I'm gonna take a hiatus from posting on the Sports in General section of this board for a while.
  14. 2017-18 NCAA Football Thread

    Well, if anything, we have our template for the future of college football: Alabama is basically allowed 1 mulligan every year.
  15. 2017-18 NCAA Football Thread

    t's just hard for me to think that a team that LOST their last game of the year in an SEC West all or nothing game got the benefit of the doubt.The committee essentially rewarded them for LOSING the Iron Bowl.Bama has officially become more insufferable than Duke basketball.
  16. 2017-18 NCAA Football Thread

    Maybe the committee should have had different top 4 rankings/matchups; 1. Why give Bama a virtual home game in the Sugar Bowl? 2. Why not make Oklahoma #1 and have Bama play THEM instead? 3. Why not have Bama play in Pasadena? Clemson-Georgia and OU-Bama I think would have worked out better.
  17. 2017-18 NCAA Football Thread

    There were 7 things when it came to college football I always was taught mattered: Resume Schedule Body of work Win your division Win your conference Don't lose late Don't lose your last game of the regular season Alabama did not check ANY of those marks And yet....... Thanks a lot, committee.
  18. Alternate SPORTS! History Thread

    In light of the Colts firing Chuck Pagano and the uncertainty of Andrew Luck What if the 2014-15 Colts did not have to play NE in the AFC-CG (AKA the game that brought us Deflategate)? Remember, that was the year New England traded blows with Baltimore in an AFC Divisional playoff classic that could have gone either way (Edelman threw a TD pass, Flacco and Brady basically went mano a mano) I say this because Indy was the 4 seed, Baltimore the 6 seed. Had the Ravens prevailed in a game they could have possibly won.... remember, Luck's Colts basically got ran over by New England with the games having comical lopsided scores and especially lopsided rushing stats. OTOH, Indy had beaten the Ravens that season and didn't exactly get obliterated when they played a WC game at Baltimore.
  19. 2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

    OK, Here are my thoughts on Wild Card Weekend: Titans-Chiefs- Tennessee is incredibly lucky. Forget the Mariota TD deflection pass, the Chiefs going full Chief. How they somehow managed to beat out the Ravens/Chargers (teams with positive point differentials) with a NEGATIVE point differential. Seriously, I can't think of anything about the TItans to be excited about. Mariota is basically Jon Kitna with a good PR staff, Derrick Henry apparently only runs well in the 4th quarter. And MIKE. MULARKEY. Worst coach to ever win a playoff game IMO. I cannot believe the football gods did this AGAIN to the Chiefs and yet decided 'Hey, let's smile on Mike Mularkey and a painfully average team.' Mariota is stuck with him again. At halftime, he was gone. Now, he staved off the execution of unemployment. We all lose here. Falcons-Rams- Frustrating. The Rams were a joy to watch all season, the Falcons were joyless and not fun to watch all season. SO OF COURSE the football gods reward the team that quite frankly looked sluggish most of the year. The Falcons quite frankly can't keep relying on a geezer kicker and a no-name defense. They still keep winning in spite of Matt Ryan. Bills-Jaguars- Jags defense is better. Their coach went for it on 4th down. Buffalo's kicked a FG. How much you think Buffalo wishes tiebreakers had sent them to Arrowhead? I still think Buffalo is better than the Tennessee Luckboxes. Panthers-Saints: Seriously, how much do you think Carolina wishes they were playing the Rams? If the Buccaneeers don't hit that late TD in week 17, the Panthers are playing at the LA Coliseum instead of the Superdome. Titans-Patriots.... oh god. This is the type of game where you just wish they went back to the old days and the Saturday divisional playoff games were at 12/3:30. This is a waste of a primetime timeslots. Patriots Saturday night divisional primetime games are especially lopsided. Falcons..... after all the talk about NFC UNPREDICTABILITY and PARITY and WIDE OPEN CONFERENCE, I think Atlanta winning again would quite frankly be a letdown. The last thing I want to see is a SB rematch? A worse Falcons team with SARK against the Pats again? No thanks. Then again, given how this has been an NFL season that has been so wracked with turmoil and injuries and officiating BS, perhaps a SB rematch might be what this mostly joyless season truly deserves.

    You had ONE job, committee. Instead, you showed your true colors- Crimson and White.
  21. 2017-18 NCAA Football Thread

    Bama winning the title without a great resume/a challending schedule, not winning division/conferenc,e would set new tone for college football teams years to come. Things I thought were college football reliables: Don't lose late You can't finish 2nd in your division You HAVE to win your conference You can't have a light resume Don't fatten up on cupcakes Bama basically could change that. Go Georgia.

    Remember those 2 glorious years in 2013-14 and 2014-15 when we actually had national title games WITHOUT Alabama? Seems like a decade ago. Bama fatigue is real.
  24. NBA 2017-18: A Tale of Two Conferences

    Feels like we’re headed for an inevitable LeBron vs. Spurs/Warriors NBA Finals
  25. 2017 NFL Season: Then there were Two

    They didn't want to take their chances on Tampa Bay pulling an upset. Remember what happened with the Bengals/Jets many years ago?
