This is my entry for the 30k and 1.25 million
Welp you're fuged now with Peterson out, unless your locks on Sunday. I picked him in a 50/50 league.
I'm not sure this fairweather city of wine and cheese has a whole lot of room to talk. I went to a game here around 2010 or so and BofA was housing about a couple thousand or so other Bears fans and maybe a few hundred Panthers fans. You could hear a pin drop from across the stadium when we had the ball.
If you are a Bears fan, I will apologize for this....but do you remember how the 2010 season went for the Panthers? We were a 2-14 team that year that somehow looked worse than their record. In that game, the Bears starting quarterback went 6-16 for 32 yards and 4 Interceptions and the Panthers still lost by 17. Reread that sentence again and explain to me why anyone would be fired up.
His logic was that he decided he would use actual scores from games last year in each week and assign them to this years games, which makes a lot of sense if you've been hot boxing and listening to Cypress hill's hits from the bong for 48 hours straight on repeat.
Why would you wear a team jersey that isn't playing where you are attending? Are you showing your defiance? Do you think Matt Ryan is going to see you on tv and say, 'Damn that cat has my jersey on. He's pretty damn cool'
Punch him in the face or challenge him to the field of honor at dawn
I can't remember the last time I've gone to a home game and not seen at least one douchebag wearing a tony romo jersey, no matter who is playing against us. Those people are almost as slimy as Alice. Almost.
A quick digging shows that the major sport reporting sites use stats compiled by Elias Sports Bureau, while PFF does there own in house. Since many stats are subjective, what Elias calls a hit, PFF may call a sack. You'll find many threads about Elias and stat discrepancy, especially with regard to fantasy football since a few changes in stats can change outcome of fantasy games.
Elias goes back and rewatches every game and makes stat corrections, usually the week after the game. So yes, these can affect outcomes of fantasy football games, but the point is that their final numbers are pretty accurate, so trying to pass PFF as more reliable is silly.
EDIT: Did Alice really just cite Madden ratings in another post. Wow!!!!
Before everyone gets out the pitchforks and claim that Barnwell is no better than Adam Schien and Peter King, keep in mind that he went on record last year saying that our win total should improve because our record in close games was a statistical anomaly, he's just saying there likely is some reversion to the mean with close games, and that the Panthers didn't have an offseason that appeared to show much of an improvement (on paper). He also basically said the same thing about the Falcons last year, likely to show regression from the previous season and not likely to have such a strong winning record in close games.
He's also been pretty firmly entrenched in saying that the media narrative last season about the Panthers winning because Cam supposedly matured was garbage (that he's been the same guy all along and that he's had to carry the offense on his back moreso than many of the guys he is compared to), that Hurney's contracts were a lot of the reason that we don't have the talent that we should have at other positions, etc. A lot of his logic for predicting the regression is sound, and I hope he's wrong, but it's not the typical unresearched BS that we have to hear in most cases.
Unfair to a point. It's one thing to hate fughole graham or moleface. But just hating a guy because the other team got to him first is kinda fuged. That's like if Cam ( even though I myself don't like him all that much) were to go to the highest bidder when his contract is up (unlikely as he seems to love it here) and we just decided we hate him just because. Dumb.
The two situations you mention really aren't comparable. Not many here hate captain munnerlyn for taking a better deal in MN.
/smack forum talk on
Even if they were, fug him because he's on the saints meaning that we have to read Alice riding his dick for the next 10 years. For that matter, for halfway defending the saints and Alice fug you too!
