  1. Sleeves on football jerseys. MLB games that were played in under 3 hours Mel Allen doing TWIB MLB Game of the Week on NBC MNF on ABC with Frank, Howard, and Dandy Don (Look it up, youngsters. You'll be glad you did) Super Bowls that started before 6:30 PM
  2. I can assure you that this thread is a genuine request for feedback. Full disclosure, I just made a suggestion that addressed one of your concerns.
  3. That's exactly the kind of thing I could see happening here. Less restrictive rules aren't the issue. The optics of an NHL or NBA team having a player test positive and then only isolating that player while letting everyone else play would be pretty bad. Especially if another player ends up testing positive down the road. That team would take a real beating in the media for being irresponsible. So would the league. I know a lot of us want sports to come back, but I can't see a way to do it that doesn't risk losing entire teams over a positive test. Golf and NASCAR are the only two sports in which you could lose a participant and be no worse off for it. Everything else is a PR and competitive disaster waiting to happen.
  4. That's how I see any return to play. Just my opinion, but the smartest move the NHL and NBA could make would be to call it a season and try again next year. Can't remember if I've said this already in this thread. Apologies if I'm repeating myself here. If one player on a team tests positive during a playoff series, wouldn't that player's team, or maybe both teams, be out for 14 days because of the exposure? Let's say it happens three games into a five game series. Do the rest of the playoff teams hit the pause button and wait? That's what I believe is the biggest obstacle facing the leagues if they want to try to come back. It seems like everything else works, but I have no idea how they would handle a player testing positive in the middle of a round. Testing isn't 100% accurate so it's entirely possible that a player or two could slip through. That being said, I could be way off base on this.
  5. With all moderator votes in, the suspension has been set at one week.
  6. Member has been suspended for repeated violations of board posting rules. The length of the suspension will be determined once all moderator votes are cast.
  7. Calling out the entire community is not only wrong, it's offensive. "Potential biases?" You decided the potential was there for the entire community to have a mindset from 1974 and just went with it? How is that appropriate? This is a good time to trot out a CCSLC classic. Think before you post.
  8. That's going way over the line. I've been here for 15 years. Not once have I seen anything that even remotely supports that statement.
  9. Well, that was weird. I thought I wouldn't miss having fans at the race since you really can't hear them anyway, but their absence made it all very strange.
  10. Of all the places I thought I would get my daily reminder that a Cleveland team blew a championship, this thread on these here boards wasn't any of them.
  11. I would have gone with it sounds like a Bon Jovi lyric. Yours is better.
  12. I'd forgotten that the Monsters won the Calder Cup. Also, I think 7 would have sufficed.
  13. I ran across RockyTopper every once in a while. I knew the name, but that was about it.
  14. Yup. Time flies when you're...well...doing whatever it is we do here.
