  1. If that is the case then it is not Cam who bares the brunt of the responsibility. It is the coaches job to find the best scheme to fit their personnel. I know the level of competition is nowhere near the same but a friend and I have coached youth flag football across multiple age groups for years. He has the offense and I have the defense. While we both have our favored systems, neither is married to it and we change things each year to fit that group’s abilities.

    What’s going on in Saudi Arabia?

    Saudi Arabia be confused
  3. Maybe. We are not a good team. We are an average to above average team that has excellent qualities along with gaping holes. There are only a handful of good teams and a handful of bad ones. Of the twenty or so teams in the middle some will make the playoffs by default.

    How about those RED SOX! Part Deux

    Eovaldi worries me. I have been a huge fan of his for years, use to always get him as one of those $1 pitchers to spot start in fantasy. When he is on, he is amazing, and he is a Yankee killer. When he is bad though, he is very bad and it happens quickly. Honestly though...against this opponent everybody worries me.
  7. For some reason we cannot post in the old thread so I guess we need a new one. The first one saw a World Series title but then had two last place finishes so maybe we will get some new thread magic. Anyway, Price has been named Opening Day starter. I really was not all too keen on this signing. Just like last year they are overpaying drastically, although at least I like Price most than the bats we wasted cash on last season (I still hate Panda). This feels like a second or third place team to me, not as bad as it had been but not as good as '13 either. We definitely have some fine young talent. I really hope that the idiot contracts to Sandoval and Hanley do not cost Shaw playing time. Luckily nobody looks unbeatable in the East, although Toronto will be favorites to repeat as long as Stroman is healthy and the pen does not blow. I have them in the high eighties. Balimore is the weakest in the division and should win in the mid 70s. That leaves Boston with New York and Tampa in the middle. I think we have the best roster of the three and the Yankees are the worst, however that pen of their's is so damn good it will disguise some weaknesses. They have won more than they should have three years in a row due to their stellar 8th/9th inning guys and this year's pen is their best yet. We should be fighting New York all season , both finishing in the mid-80s. Tampa meanwhile will stay close but I do not think they have the hitting to win more than 79-82. No matter how it plays out, so glad to have baseball back!

    Trade for Jimmy Butler: Yes/No??

    This is how I feel as well. Back to back years we got the first round pick I wanted and a second round guy I like. I am not sure how to react to this, it is all so new.

    That was one hell of a series. The starters will have to go deeper into games and the bullpen will have to pitch better against Houston though. The Yankees were a very good baseball team this season, the Astros may end up being the best team that I have ever seen. Regardless of the outcome, there is nothing that can happen at this point to make this season a disappointment. Greatest record in Red Sox history and knocked the Yanks out of the postseason, evening the score at two series apiece all-time. Cannot wait for Saturday. I am struggling to think of a sports match-up where I felt you had two all-time great teams of this caliber, should be fun.
  10. I feel we are in the second tier, ahead of most of the NFL but currently behind the top four or five teams.
  11. What is the purpose of the "cannot advance a muff" rule?

    Are you registered to vote ?

    I am registered and vote in every election, but I never get an actual candidate worth voting for that has a chance of winning. The amendments are the one place where I occasionally win one.

    Westworld Season 2

    Absolutely the best thing that I have ever seen whether it be TV, film, whatever. I agree though, it is not for everyone. It is also a show that will hit you differently depending on where you are in your life. Had it come out five years earlier I would have still enjoyed it, but would not have connected in the same way simply because I had had different life experiences at that point.
  15. Wow, CJ only has three targets and it is easy to recall each one of them

  17. I have watched only four Super Bowls since the year we lost to the Pats and am not sure if I have ever watched a halftime show.
  18. This reminds me of the first Saints games last year where we came in 2-0 to their 0-2 and what a win could have done for us. Going up two games on Atlanta with a h2h victory and with the Saints already having a division looks would be enormous. With this OL and secondary though I just do not have the confidence that it will happen. I also do not expect the new offense to really hit its stride until the second half of the season. Plus, we rarely win there. Hell, we could not win in Atlanta when we went 15-1. Panthers 13:21 Falcons

    Sharp Objects

    I was not a fan of the abrupt ending, most things they did a good job leaving clues so you could deduce them, but there were several things that were left unexplained. My main issue was the way the murders were so different and it was commented multiple times about it being two killers. Then the characters basically forgot about it and it was never brought up again by the show. I am fine with it being the same killer but it is very lazy to bring it up multiple times and then just drop it. I still very much enjoyed the show but do not feel that they stuck the landing. It had a shot to be my favorite of ‘18 but I feel that The Americans is still the leader in the clubhouse. Could be the first time in fifteen years or so that my top show of the year was not an HBO show.

    Sharp Objects

    I have basically avoided everything with the exception of one podcast where neither person read the book or knew anything about it. I love this show and cannot wait for the finale. I have a theory about it all so stop reading as my explanation might contain spoilers for those that have not watched. I think that Amma, maybe with Natalie’s help killed Ann and that Amma and Ashley, maybe with help from Joades and the other one, killed Natalie. Now until this last episode I thought it was Adora, not Ashley that was in on Natalie. Some Ashley things as well as my belief that the vision of Adora as the woman in white is probably muddying the waters changed my mind. First: there was talk early on that this was two different killers. They mentioned it multiple times. I doubt this means nothing. The difference in the killings has to be explained. Natalie’s murder has much more evidence around it. John has talked about the three girls being friends and about how Natalie injured the one classmate while younger, liked to bite, and would have never painted her nails. The nails part makes sense coming from Adora, but correct m if I am wrong, I do not remember Ann having painted nails. Therefore it is likely someone doing it out of hatred as opposed to Adora, who would do it to make her “proper.” Amma and Ashley both have reasons to hate Natalie. Amma would be jealous of the attention that Adora paid Ashley (and Ann) while Ashley, who complained this week that John never slept with her, would be jealous of the friendship John and his sister had. Ann turned up the next day while Natalie turned up several days after her disappearance. She had to be held somewhere. Ashley’s pool house makes sense. It would explain the blood on the floor and bite on Ashley’s ear. Natalie was clearly planned, precise, premeditated murder. I believe that Ann was more of a heat of passion, what have I done type thing. She was not put on display, and it was much more sloppy. If Camille’s vision is right and Adora was the woman in white then I definitely think it is two killers because I cannot see her killing Ann the way she was killed. Amma and Natalie are the only two that make sense for me here. We know they were friends, we know there was a falling out. Amma indicated this to Camille and Natalie indicated as much on her “friends list.” Who knows, maybe it mirrors the lesbian murder that was possibly Adora from back in the day. Even if it was Natalie though, Amma would have to be involved because of the location of the bike. We got that scene of Camille following Amma to the farm. A show like this, all scenes mean something, that one was to show her comfort level with the farm and that she came there often. She could have easily killed Ann and panicked, dumping the bike in a familiar place where she felt safe. I think that Natalie was either involved with Ann’s death and got cold feet or she found out Amma did it and in either case she became a threat, which led to her death. I was in favor of Adora being the woman in white and helping in Natalie’s death to protect Amma and that Adora got the worker to say John dropped the bike. I moved on to Ashley for several reasons though: -the aforementioned, painting the nails out of hatred -Amma mentioned something like “I can get girls to do what I want but they hate me after.” This would fit Ashley in my scenario to a T -Amma said you can get boys to do what you want if you let them do stuff to you. This is the worker at the farm that fingered John. Adora would have been smart enough to pick a night shift person, Amma knows the day shift guys -Ashley says John would never murder the girls because it would make him popular...this is all she cares about and would also explain why Natalie was put on display -Natalie was a biter so her teeth were pulled I also think that the teeth are in Chekov’s Doll House. There has been too much focus on it and Amma went total bitch face when Camille tried to touch Adora’s room. The teeth are probably in there, although I hope they are not the actual ivory floor, that might seems silly. There is one thing that does not fit though. Why were Ann’s teeth pulled? Makes me think Natalie was involved somehow in Ann’s death. I hope not though. John already lost his poor sister and is arrested for her murder. If the kid does get out if would suck to find out his dead kid sister was a murderer.

    Supposedly there were only fifty or so words mentioned in the book so they sat down one day and came up with what would make sense for the rest. They then had her body double write them on herself and basically copied her body when doing the makeup or whatever was needed for Camille. That way it would be as realistic as they could get it and it explains the poor formation of certain letter. There is actually a space on her back where the body double could not reach.
  22. I am not sure what I thought it was going to be from the previews, but it is definitely different than I anticipated.
