  1. Something about the ownership group never sat quite right with me. I think Burkle was smart to disassociate himself from that cast if rank amateurs. It's also convenient for him to use pandemic related financial issues as his rationale as opposed to "those broke a%^ idiots were leaving me to hold the bag." Honestly, at this point I think we can stick a fork in Republic's MLS bid with this ownership group. Now, I think the only way Sacramento will get an MLS team is if someone builds the stadium and buys one of the existing teams that are for sale and moves them here. I guess my Sacramento MLS scarf is now a collector's item. At least the party when they got the bid was fun.
  2. I'd want to be a striker in a major European football league. The amount of money those guys can make is eyewatering in comparison to anything athletes make over here.
  3. I was watching the late news on KCRA last night and the weather guy was going on about how the start of the game is going to be at the warmest time of the day up there with bright sunshine so he thinks the ice will be worse than it was yesterday. Should be interesting. Too bad the league screwed this up so badly because I'd have loved to go up for the weekend to watch it. Thanks for also reminding me I need to take a ride over the hill again I miss Tahoe.
  4. I've bought patches from Patch Collection before with decent luck. Also, since IIRC you're in the Boston area have you thought about giving Custom Crafted in North Attleborough a call? They're the official customizer for the Bruins and I'm sure they'd have no problem stitching your jersey. I've also had jerseys customized both by EPS and others where I sent patches with the hard backing on them and they had no problem sewing them on.
  5. I picked up the Red Wings jersey in a Ross in Honolulu last week for the same price.
  6. Because Bowles would hope the world forgot his performance as Jets head coach. Todd Bowles is an excellent defensive coordinator but he wasn't a good head coach at all.
  7. FTFY I agree with you, outside of his strikeout total nothing about Schilling screams Hall of Famer to me. Hall of Very Good, sure but not HOF. They'll leave it up to the Veteran's Committee to decide. They could sue , but I don't think they'd have much of a case and it would backfire greatly against them in the court of public opinion.
  8. Columbus traded Pierre-Luc Dubois and a third round pick to Winnipeg for Patrick Laine and Jack Roslovic which sets up the question of how long before Laine demands out and is traded. I see this as trading one problem for the same problem as I don't see Laine thriving under Torts.
  9. I'm guessing he's too busy celebrating, but his response should be epic.
  10. So the Bills and Browns win playoff games in the same season that means the world's ending this week doesn't it.
  11. Probably should have put this here instead of in the offseason thread but... So the "broke as *$%^" NHL, per The Athletic has sold the naming rights for the four divisions. The divisions new names will be: North: Scotiabank Central: Discover East: MassMutual West: Honda Rumors are the league is getting somewhere in the mid-seven figures from the deal. OITGDNHL

  13. The Giants lost 4 games by 4 or fewer points this season. As much as I don't like what the Eagles did relying on another team to get into the playoffs is just dangerous because of the element outside of your control. I'll say this for the Giants though, unlike their stadium mates they appear to be trending in the right direction.
  14. They probably are to blame as well, but I read his post to be referring to the COVID restrictions which are keeping the Sharks from playing in Santa Clara County, but aren't as strict in El Dorado County (Tahoe) so it's possible for them to play there.
  15. If there was something preventing the Sharks from playing in Tahoe it'd be preventing ANY team from playing in Tahoe. It's the NHL doing the most OITGDNHL things in the most NHL way possible.
