  1. Barclays Premier League- 2015/16 Season Thread

    True.. we hit the bar how many times? two, three times? Couldn't finish, and the ball just wasn't bouncing our way Monday. Oh well, still a chance (albeit very, extremely slim) that we come back and take this. I'm almost about to throw up a little, but... C'mon ManUre - kick the poo out of those Foxes!!

    fug Clattenberg.. worst fuging ref in the entire EPL. How that tying goal wasn't denied is beyond me. Dawson jumps on the back of Dier, while pulling his shirt with one hand, and clocking him in the back of the head (which resulted in his being taken to the dressing room!) with the other, and it's all fair. WHAT THE EVER-LOVING fug?? Pulis' defense tactic - run into the guy, no matter which direction you're coming from, and take the player out. We won't get called anyways, why not? So pissed right now. I don't mind losing, but to see that horseshit display... (and yeah, Alli was very wrong, and most likely will be out the next three games due to his stupidity).

    2nd is still much, much better than 5th. I'll take it, even if a title would be incredible to have. I'm hoping we win out, but won't be disappointed in the season if we don't.
  4. And what makes it even more confusing and difficult to track, is that they have never released their formula for the comp picks process. So, in actuality, it may just be a couple of the NFL top dogs shooting spitballs at a dart board, or a back room deal (which would explain the Pats getting so many picks over the years. Heh!)

    I looked at my coworkers today and said, "Now I know how my dad felt when John Lennon was shot." I was just floored... One of, if not the most gifted musical genius I've ever had the pleasure of listening to, and one of the major reasons I got into music as a kid. I will certainly miss his works, and feel the world just got a little sadder for this loss. RIP Mr. Kid.
  6. Found a decent article on Comp picks: http://overthecap.com/the-basics-and-methodology-of-projecting-the-nfls-compensatory-draft-picks/
  7. I don't believe it works that way. It's the difference between the perceived and actual value of the player lost to the value of the player brought in that is what's used for determining comp picks. If Josh gets his $16 million per year that he's looking for, and we bring in a vet for around $2 million (like Getts is notorious for at this point), we would have a differential of $14 million. That amount is thenfactored into their computation for which round of comp pick we get. So, we could sign a corner, and still get the pick. We just couldn't sign someone who is asking for $12 million per year and retain a 3rd rounder. Otherwise, teams would never sign free agents for fear of losing out on more draft picks. The Patriots do this consistently, by letting their higher-priced guys go to other teams, and yet they always seem to have a bunch of comp picks every year to help them replace saidplayers. It's an effective and smart way to handle free agency.

    Big win today -3 goals within 6 minutes is huge. Too bad I still don't see Leicester dropping many points, if any. That gap is just too huge to close at the moment, and although I'll be hoping like crazy, it's a tough battle to win. I can't believe I'm saying this, but come on ManU and Chelsea. Beat those foxes!

    Well.. fug me. 7 points isn't an insurmountable difference, but it's sure going to be a tough challenge to overcome now.

    Absolutely terrific game. Much respect to Pool, they came ready to play and didn't disappoint. Now I just have to hope that the Foxes drop points to South.

    How was that not a foul and possible booking? He took Rose down while on the ground from behind with his leg whipping Rose's ankle?

    Great save by Mignolet!....... dammit
  13. Barclays Premier League- 2015/16 Season Thread

    That shouldn't have been a card... Alli started it. Should have been just a "walk away" form both players.
  14. Barclays Premier League- 2015/16 Season Thread
