In Topic: What is the #1 headline you want to hear this offseason?

30 January 2015 - 07:57 PM

I almost went with "Mike Shula Fired", but I think I like Towelboy's better.

 

"Greg Hardy Cleared of All Charges; Takes Reasonable Offer to Remain With Panthers"

That was absolutely hilarious.  Funniest thing I've watched in a while.


In Topic: Superbowl over hyped to the point of nauseum

29 January 2015 - 11:43 PM

While I was in Australia they had Super Bowl parties too, and I even got the day off to the embassy Super Bowl party each year (our Sunday is their Monday).  American Football is a growing interest over there, at least as far as I saw.  Not saying it comes close to comparing to Aussie Rules or either of the rubgies, but it's probably as popular as soccer. 

 

But yea, the fervor that accompanies the SB and playoffs don't come close to that of the World Cup, but they're not totally comparable since the World Cup is every 4 years.  Better to compare that to the Olympics.

I won't argue with the talent level difference, but for the record (current NFL players via ESPN)

 

 

Appalachian State PLAYER TEAM POSITION Travaris Cadet New Orleans Saints Running Back Daniel Kilgore San Francisco 49ers Center Sam Martin Detroit Lions Punter Demetrius McCray Jacksonville Jaguars Cornerback <a data-ipb="nomediaparse" data-cke-saved-href="http://espn.go.com/n...r/_/id/15629/de" href="http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/15629/de" andre-presley"="">De'Andre Presley Carolina Panthers Wide Receiver Brian Quick St. Louis Rams

Wide Receiver

 

 

 

 

East Carolina PLAYER TEAM POSITION Dwayne Harris Dallas Cowboys Wide Receiver Chris Johnson New York Jets Running Back Linval Joseph Minnesota Vikings Defensive Tackle C.J. Wilson Oakland Raiders Defensive End

Yea, I noticed after I posted it could be taken to mean "has players in the NFL" rather than what I meant "has players that belong in the NFL".  I meant the talent level part you mentioned.  Not one of the App St players is worth a poo, whereas Harris is solid, CJ was a talent of the "burns the brightest burns the quickest" type, one time superstar, and Joseph is also solid.  I'm not familiar with Wilson though.
 


In Topic: Can't decide who to pull for on Sunday.

I'm hoping for a 0-0 tie game that goes into Monday and the ref's finally say "fug it you both lose.  Let's have the Packers and Colts play next week" and the Packers slaughter the Colts the next week.
