  1. Barclays Premier League- 2015/16 Season Thread

    And Chelsea were lucky not to get their fair share of cards too for the numerous sliding tackles with both feet raised, the forearms to the throat here and there inciting the retaliation you saw, and the six hundred dives they did. It's all in what the ref sees. Trust me, I know Clattenberg is poo, but it did go both ways.
  2. Barclays Premier League- 2015/16 Season Thread

    Really? I missed that, as I turned it off about 3/4s of the way through the game, and Clattenberg was pissing me off. I knew the score already, so I didn't see the point of getting angry. Between that, and Dembele's ridiculous eye-gouge attempt, not sure what the hell was going with my guys. This is not like them at all, and it's something that needs addressing quickly. I'm embarrassed, especially since that stupid punch by Alli should have them on guard against immature actions. Not proud by any means.
  3. This is the first player in a long time I'd be willing to take a flyer on, since the upside could be high, with the cost commensurate. I doubt we'll see him in camp though, as I'm sure a lot of more needy teams will throw bags of cash at him to come in and try and start for their team instead. If we do think he'd fit in here, I'd like to see him go for the RT spot, with Williams still being groomed for LT. But, again, I doubt he's even on our radar. But, I could always be wrong too, lol.

    To be fair though, when was the last time we've had this much parity too? If things keep going the way they have been, I can see this being an average for the title winners, and not the aberration. I'd like to think that the days of 3-4 teams taking the top spots every year, Fergie-time, and all the other things that make it a boring league are gone now. There's really not that much that separates the top from the bottom now, and I'm enjoying the hell out of that, regardless of where my team finishes.

    At the end of the season, we needed to handle our business, and we didn't. Hats off to Leicester, they pulled through (with a horseshoe stuck up an uncomfortable orifice, but I digress...) and took the title. I have to say it's been a fun ride, and congrats to their fans and supporters. I wish we could have made it at least down to the wire, but we didn't, and that's that. I'll still be happy with second place this year, and I like our chances of taking it all next year even more now.
  6. Falcons Fans: Carolina Gets It

    That team is such a mess, and their fanbase still doesn't have a clue... I'm good with this. Couldn't happen to a better group of buttholes. (Yeah, I will always hate the Falcons)
  7. Just so sad

    So, the guy with a problem with alcohol addiction so bad that it cost him his job, is sitting in a bar watching the draft. Why should I feel sorry for him again?
  8. Favorite songs about relationships

    Can't believe this one hasn't made it in here yet.... so very, very true:
  9. 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!!
  10. Barclays Premier League- 2015/16 Season Thread

    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).
  11. Barclays Premier League- 2015/16 Season Thread

    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.
  12. 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!)
  13. Musician Prince Dead at 57

    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.
  14. Found a decent article on Comp picks: http://overthecap.com/the-basics-and-methodology-of-projecting-the-nfls-compensatory-draft-picks/
  15. 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.
