  1. Exactly. That's the problem. So, teams can be bumped due to bad calls in every other round, but if they're lucky enough to make it to the final, if they get a bad call their way it gets fixed. The 'best team' may get bumped earlier from a bad call and never get to see the final. That's the problem. The same rules should apply to all games. This would be like have a 5-man officiating crew in the early rounds and an 8-man crew for the finals calling penalties. It just wouldn't be fair.
  2. Minnesota already did this last year for the semifinals and finals at US Bank Stadium. The problem is the number of cameras needed. For Minnesota, at a professional stadium using enough cameras to broadcast the games statewide in HD, they still had not a single call in the semifinals get overturned that I noticed. Just not enough cameras trained on exactly what they wanted to see. Instead, it was just a long break in the action for no reason. Now, Texas broadcasts on Fox Sports Southwest, and will probably bring a regular college football game's camera total. So, will be more likely. But, to me, this is unfair. What if Team A won the semifinal, or even quarterfinal, because of a blown or missed call, but once they get to the state title, a blown call will be caught. So, that team that should've moved on back in the quarterfinals or semifinals is sitting at home, watching replay overturn a blown call. Surely, this can't be implemented throughout the playoffs. So, the status quo is good for every other playoff game, it should be good for the last 12.

    Las Vegas Prime Ribs.

    Nice is an interesting term for Hersheypark Stadium. I've seen it called many things. I don't think nice was ever one of them.

    Exactly. And the number of people that could even name half of the 50 states is alarmingly high. I briefly worked with a guy from Greencastle, PA. It's about 45 minutes from Harrisburg. The capital. He did NOT know that Harrisburg was the state capital. In fact, he didn't even know states had capitals. And these people vote.

    I'd be curious just how many adults in the U.S. even KNOW that Raleigh is a city, regardless that it's in the Carolinas.

    Some turf is just shinier than others. Some looks like a matte finish. Probably the manufacturer. But, yeah, I can't stand the shiny turf, either.
  8. Let’s Find the Lowest-Rated Logo On This Site

    I think what makes the Beast of New Haven logo bad is that the name itself is bad as well. Take away the name, the logo is weird and bad, but it's not 'bad' in terms of rendering. It's a simple outline design, solid colors, etc. What's bad is that rainbow patterned Fornadoes logo that features a Dragon instead of... you know, a Tornado.

    If a team does go to Dallas, the perfect place is SMU's stadium. Cotton Bowl is ridiculously large and lacks any emphasis to buy tickets ahead of time. Also, it's been said earlier and many times over the neighborhood it's in isn't exactly the best. Frisco, at FC Dallas' stadium isn't really an option. As for Colorado, depending on potential stadium sizes they're looking for, and the season, Coors Field might be the option. Aside from that, if you want to go to the mountain states, Utah makes the most sense. There's three notable stadiums in the Wasatch range with Rio Tinto, Rice-Eccles, and BYU's stadium. Rice-Eccles would be the prime location.
  10. NBA G-League Still Needs to Expand

    Colorado Springs makes the most sense. But, for G-League, you could go with Loveland. Or even Pueblo has a 3900 seat arena.
  11. Humbolt Broncos bus crash

    This is horrific on the part of the family told their relative was alive and turned out not to be. But, a miracle to the other family.

  13. This Is The Alliance Of American Football

    Unfortunately, the league doesn't get to tell others what they call it. You can bet things like ESPN, etc, are going to just have AAF on the score tracker, etc. If we can have CFB, NCAAM, or similar, we're going to see AAF in use.
  14. TItans had "Copperheads" as an option, I remember.

    Were they still in a Zlatan stupor? Didn't get to see the game yet to know why 5-0. Though already reading "Refs suck" as the reason. Surely that can't be the only explanation.
