    International Football 2018-2019

    1st Leg blowouts usually don’t lead to boring 2nd legs, however. Just last year in the UCL we had Real-Juve, Barca-Roma & Liverpool-Roma all as first leg blowouts that produced thoroughly entertaining 2nd legs. Bayern-Real and Barca-PSG were that same way the previous year.
  2. PAC-12 South or ACC Coastal? Two of the worst divisions I’ve seen in a while.

    Hopefully they don’t burn Buenos Aires down. Also is great to see a final being played over two legs.

    Really don’t know what they’re going to go if they can’t get Conte under wraps.

    2018 NFL Season

    On one hand, I am happy to see good players shipped out of a :censored:ty organization like the Raiders, but what the hell is Gruden's strategy at this point? At least this wasn't as lob-sided as the Mack trade.
  6. That Purdue matchup was eerily similar to that Ohio State-Iowa game last year, or was it two years ago? Either way they’ll probably still win the Big Ten since Penn State threw away their season running it up the middle on 4th & 5 and everyone else isn’t good enough.

    No but somebody has to win the NFC East.

    Hot take alert: Joachim Löw needs to go. Even with all that talent, Germany got blown out by a pretty weak Dutch side 3-0. He’s a great coach but I think he just needs to move on.

    Man, La Liga and the Bundesliga are actually gonna be some fun to watch this year. Dortmund look on the rise again, Real and Barcelona aren’t playing that well and Sevilla (particularly Andre Silva and Wissam Ben Yedder) are on FIRE. Should be some fun for once.

    LOL Real Madrid. Did not think CSKA Moscow of all sides would be the first to top the holders.

    Yeah it is. I don't mind at that much, since I can't really be asked to take him seriously (and I did like him as a player) but the man thing that ticks me off is not being able to watch any game other than the ones shown. Had to stream Spurs-Inter through a less than legitimate source because TNT was showing Barca romp over PSV.

    Oh, Tottenham. On a side note, not a fan of TNT’s UCL coverage.

    Players who can't make it in school can go play in an Europe, China, and then go to the NBA. Doing this would allow for one-and-dones to become a thing of the past, and make college basketball a lot more competitive. Football players seem to be able to handle it well enough, basketball players should be fine. Playing international games in the summer allows for national team coaches to have a consistent squad together for extended periods of time, helping the team grow and play better together. Most major international tournaments are played in the summer, so it would fit just fine, plus players would be better rested since most domestic seasons could be able to close by the end of April with no international breaks.

    In General: -Teams should pay for their own stadiums. No more threatening cities into using taxpayer money for their personal gain. NFL: -I’d like to stop seeing non-stop promotion of Fantasy Football. It is sad and pathetic to have programming dedicated to fantasy football. -An additional bye week should be added to the NFL season to allow for additional rest for players. -Thursday Night Football should be cut back. It should be allowed on opening night, Thanksgiving, and in December and only then. Teams should also get a bye week before playing a Thursday night game. -Any team playing a game in Europe should get a bye week before they travel. -West Coast teams shouldn’t be forced to play 1 PM games on the East Coast and vice versa. -Pass interference should not be a spot foul. -Calls by the referee should be made reviewable. -Intentional grounding should be re-worked. The QB shouldn’t be allowed to throw the ball out of bounds or incomplete just to avoid a sack. NBA: -Regular season should be cut to 66 games. NCAA Football: -No conference should have more than 12 teams. -Color vs. Color matchups should be allowed as long as colors don’t conflict. -NCAA Basketball: -Players should be required to either play college basketball for 3 years or declare for the draft after high school. -Conference tournaments should be abolished. Regular season champs would recieve automatic bids instead of conference tournament champs. -NCAA Tournament should expand to 72 teams. -Automatic qualifiers shouldn’t be allowed to play play-in games. Soccer: -International breaks should be scrapped, International teams should play matches from June to August uninterrupted. -There should be a 2 week winter break in all major european leagues, and additional 2 week breaks between the end of club season and the start of international season (May) and the end of International season and the start of club season (August). -Leagues should establish salary caps and limits on transfer spending to help the leagues become more competitive. I’ll probably think of more later.
