#2909708 A closer look at Bersin preseason stats

Posted by YourManInAmsterdam on 25 August 2014 - 11:46 PM

I can't help but pull for the home town underdog. Really hope he makes the squad.


And there's nothing wrong with that. Everyone likes a feel good story.


But to labour under this unfounded notion that a guy from the practice squad is ready to start Game 1 over a healthy guy who caught 10 touchdowns the previous year borders on ludicrous.

#2906191 Out of market Huddlers - how are you watching the Panthes games this year?

Posted by YourManInAmsterdam on 24 August 2014 - 05:03 AM

I think I'm just going to buy NFL game pass so I can watch on my phone as well. I have MLB.TV that I use on my phone and it's great.

Does anyone have this? Does it work on the phone alright?


I never had a problem using a mobile device as long as I'm on Wi-Fi. Never even attempted it on a 3G or 4G Network, but I wouldn't trust it. I've used it on my phone and tablet over the past few years and only rarely had a problem. The mobile application was less than robust in the early days.


That said, NFL GamePass is no longer free in the Netherlands, but I went ahead and bought the package for 2014-2015. It's worth it. The quality (so long as my internet connection is good) is pretty outstanding. The way I see it, if I were to go to a bar where a Panthers game *might* be on, I'd spend about EUR 30.00 or more on drinks and food. With GamePass, I spend a 3rd of that per week and I can use my laptop (with HDMI out to my big ass TV) or my tablet.

i wonder if you could draw any correlations to regional prominences or dearths of education, poverty, wellness, etc.

Correlation does not equal causation.

Now the question will be, can they head off a tide of human trafficking that might be coming.

I'm in favour of decriminalising sex work, but there will now likely be problems with this.  The other problem associated with the exploitation of sex workers, of course, is pimping.  It's only different from human trafficking in that it's not about transporting humans for the purpose of sexual slavery, but the slavery part remains.


I just hope they can find a way to avoid this.  Europe's (particularly in the Netherlands', Belgium's, and Germany's) issues with trafficking are significant, and differentiating between those who work willingly versus by coercion (especially among those from Eastern Europe) is difficult.

Isn't Braband New Kids teretorry? But that's a whole different story...

Yeah, the Dutch part of Brabant it is where all the New Kids stuff is set. Though, the very concept of the region confuses me as most of Belgium is considered Brabant as well, including the French speaking part, aka Walloon.

Looks more Dutch to me.


Looks more Belgian from where I'm sitting.  Here's the flag of the Province of Brabant.



Speaking of soccer hooliganism, we just had a big brawl/min-riot in the center of Amsterdam at Leidseplein between supporters of Celtic and Amsterdam Ajax.  Ugly poo.

Mines pretty simple.  I moved to Amsterdam and joined the huddle not too long afterward.  Add the Jules/Vincent convo in Pulp Fiction, and there ya go.

#2313088 If we go 9-7 and miss the playoffs, Rivera should NOT be fired.

Posted by YourManInAmsterdam on 06 August 2013 - 11:36 AM

To me, 9-7 or 8-8 (or almost any win-loss record) being the only metric taken into account is really short sighted.  The head coach is only one of myriad influences on a team's regular season record.


If they go 9-7, but lost 3 games making busted up calls in the last 15 minutes, he should be let go.  If he goes 7-9 after some series of catastrophies (injuries, arrests, etc.) then he should perhaps stay.


All I ask for, ultimately, is improvement.  Last year we saw essentially the same nonsense we saw in 2011; 3rd and 4th quarter lead losses that ended in defeat especially.  That's what has to stop in my mind.  And if it does, the record will improve.  But the record is a symptom, not the cause of the proverbial illness.
