I'm not trying to be a ****, but I hate it when people bring up the PFF "grades".

They are so useless. PFF does a lot of cool things with advanced stats and things like that. But they don't know play calls and responsibilities. Often a o-line is expecting help or someone else has the responsibility and the wrong guy gets penalized. It happens on both sides of the ball, and they are fun for fans they shouldn't be taken as gospel.

But fug it, they are fun so why should I care. Just weird pet peave of mine

/rant


I figured this would be brought up, that's why I said to take it with a grain of salt. Also, PFF is always scoffed at when they give bad scores, but lauded when they give players good scores.

The point wasn't his grade, it was his grade in relation to every other Tackle that was graded on the same scale (almost dead last)

I had to work this AM and just watched the LFC-THFC match. I felt like we were in control for a lot of the game but just gave up dumb big plays and didn't even come close to finishing on long possessions. Kabul was garbage and gave up so many chances. That penalty was bullshit, but I can't claim 3-0 was a fluke after Sterling put Vert and Kabul in a fuging clown suit (then gifted Lloris the ball). That is kid is gonna be special

Ok, so Sky is reporting we've finalized the Fazio deal and are now trying for Stambouli from Montpellier:

Umm.. who the F is Stambouli?


Capoue has been awesome at CDM anyways. Add in Sandro and Bentaleb, when is this guy ever going to see the pitch?

Diego Costa ruled out up to 6 weeks after suffering a hamstring injury in training. No one is sure the severity yet.

Meh, he probably just realized we signed Fazio

Arsenal got a good draw. I'm really pulling for Schalke to take out Chelsea

I believe the Michael Dawson to Hull deal is finalized or will be very soon. Good for both clubs, as Daws doesn't really fit our new style very well, but he could flourish again at Hull City. All-around great guy and a good player, sorry to see him go, but glad to see him off the books too.


Word is we're looking to sign Welbeck on loan... to that I just have to say:

Dawson to Hull official. Fazio to Spurs from Sevilla also official

Best match I've seen Spurs play in a while. I know it was only QPR, but I'm starting to get my hopes up for this season. Poch has the guys playing a very fun attacking style with Lamela looking confident and like the player he was billed as last year. Also Dier has 2 goals in 2 games in the Prem.

Top of the table!

COYS!

Spurs with a late winner!

Great game: 10 vs 10 and an extra time goal by Dier, a 20 year old EPL rookie RB. 0-1 Spurs!


#2853070 Bonnell now saying Hornets are players for Lance.

Posted by d-run on 15 July 2014 - 09:55 PM

Just put a big number out there and tell him offer is leaving when you do. Don't give him chance to shop it

If his market is as dry as some say he won't be able to refuse


As far as we know the only offer he has is from pacers for under 9/year. I'd offer around 10.5-11

Maybe a sign and trade with pacers for hendo and a future pick?

I'm glad I don't have to listen to Clyde Drexler call many games


#2848879 Sporting News Report: Stephenson battle down to Hornets, Pacers, and Mavs

People bash Bonnell, but the bottom line is he is right more often than he is wrong.

It's his attitude that I dislike, but that doesn't discredit his credibility.

We just have a bunch of fickle fans that are just dying to get their panties stirred up about something.

If he was nicer I wouldn't have a problem with him, but his smug attitude really rubs me the wrong way.


Yeah I can see this completely. His responses to fan questions are usually pretty snarky, but I feel like his actually reporting gets a bad rap. We could have a lot worse beat writer

He was also stupid to say that he thought Lance Stephenson would end up on the Hornets in that first tweet, then coming back and saying the opposite in that last one. If they are showing "no interest," why would you even say the first one?


What? He says he doesn't think Stephenson would end up with hornets in both tweets


#2848861 Sporting News Report: Stephenson battle down to Hornets, Pacers, and Mavs

Posted by d-run on 13 July 2014 - 12:57 PM

He was wrong about Deng, as we have shown interest in him.

He was wrong about not pursuing any big free agents because we went after Hayward right after that.

He was wrong about Sessions.

2 of those he wasn't right or wrong about. One was just bringing up something from the past (Varejao and Landry) and the other was just him saying Utah will match, which about 50 other people were reporting at the time. Your post proves nothing.


As far as I know we haven't offered any type of deal to deng or sessions. And he didn't say we wouldn't go after any big free agents, he said we wouldn't land any.

I just think it's funny that this entire board is bitching about not signing anyone (other than MW) and also bitching that Bonnel said we wouldn't.

Reminds of how everyone used to bitch about Gantt's negativity and then we got stuck with Person
