#3217911 Deflate-Gate: Patriots Being Investigated For Deflated Footballs

Posted by dos poptarts on 23 January 2015 - 11:20 AM

As for Brady...I also have an extremely hard time believing that a QB who admits he likes the balls to be smaller and as close to the 12.5 limit has possible doesn't feel the difference when they are potentially 2 pounds under inflated.  2 pounds out of a 12.5 pound ball is a huge amount not to notice.



If Aaron Rodgers wants them as inflated as possible, making sure they are fully inflated (or more) and it makes a difference to him. [13.5 vs 12.5] Thereby, QBs do notice when they aren't at their "desired" PSI.


As to how they could pull this off, I read somewhere that all the Patriots had to do was store the balls at a very warm temp prior to testing. i.e. 90 degrees. It could pass the test at 12.5 PSI, and then at 50degrees on the field, it would naturally drop to 2lbs less. No on the sideline antics at all. The "Patriot" way. You followed the letter of the rules, but you know that during the game, that it could give you an advantage.

#3216944 Is Andy Dalton really Rick Astley?

Posted by dos poptarts on 22 January 2015 - 12:06 PM

I remember getting Rick-rolled when Youtube had just come out. That obsessed Rick fan would put out videos with outrageous titles to get you to click it, then that stupid Rick Astley video would play instead.


Well Dalton has been Rick-rolling the Bengals every year in the playoffs. Very good to great regular season and then 'WHAM' fade to "never gonna give you up".

#3207477 Wireless Routers

Posted by dos poptarts on 16 January 2015 - 11:29 AM

Look into powerline.  Set this up for my downstairs media  PC and it's been nice.  I put a little hub and have connections to all devices there wired.


Remember that if you're streaming on wireless you're speed is cut is half because of up/down.


Powerline is nice but some older homes have issues depending on how your breakers are setup as well, and you won't always get what it advertises, but most people's broadband  bandwidth wouldn't be close to max of it anyway.


Powerline uses your electrical wiring in your home to send the signal.  So you have usually two devices, one goes from your router to an outlet, then another device that goes from the outlet to your device.


This is how I stream to my Roku and HTPC. Could not get a good signal upstairs.

#3206055 Three of the League's best Special Teams coaches...

Posted by dos poptarts on 15 January 2015 - 12:10 PM

More excuses....I understand offensives and defenses suffering when players get hurt, but your ST are mostly made up of backup players. That points to coaching and schemes. Rodgers needs to go.

#3200363 How old is old?

Posted by dos poptarts on 12 January 2015 - 12:02 PM

You always hear people say... Im too old. But what is old?

At my job I'm one of the youngest people so everyone always tells me how young I'm and etc.

Earlier today I got called an old fart by 13 and 16 year olds...

PS: I'm 28 years old.

Now I'm confused...


Physically speaking I felt that my 30s  was my prime. Yes, the entire decade. Now that I'm in my 40s, I take longer to recover from injuries. If I could get my a workout back into gear, I'd be feeling much better.

Just reading the Huddle workout thread is not creating the gains. :gym:

Next time you get called an old fart, just ask them when was the last time they spoke to an attractive woman who was a complete stranger. Little sh*ts probably would wet their pants.

#3188623 Blaming Cam is easy, but often a mistake.

Posted by dos poptarts on 09 January 2015 - 10:23 AM

Cam's national criticism will never cease until he wins a Superbowl. Even then if the defense plays well, he'll get the Dilfer comparison. On 610AM Houston last night, they were discussing that Cam had to prove in this upcoming game in Seattle that he is deserving of getting a contract in Carolina (not franchise QB contract, but even staying as the Panther QB). That his "stats" were down the last 3 years. He's only winning because of the Defense. Not that he's had a crap oline for half a season or a brand new receiving core this season. It's almost as if since Dalton's out, Cam is the easy target. Didn't finish listening, but there's no hope of getting national respect for Cam. It's almost as if everyone one of the guys reads from the same script.

#3184338 Another movie recommendation... The Signal...

Posted by dos poptarts on 07 January 2015 - 10:50 AM

I enjoyed Coherence (it's on Amazon Prime now) more than the Signal. But both are good films. Feels like there's a resurgence in Sci-Fi drama lately.

#3142612 Hell exists...

Posted by dos poptarts on 19 December 2014 - 10:41 AM

Wife wants me to catch and release spiders that make their way into the house. Of course I only do that when she's in the room. But dammit, went to catch a medium sized wolf spider and fug, I missed and then had 100s of baby wolf spiders running all over the tile. Said fug it and brought out the Windex and saturated the back door area. I got em, but I'm sure a dozen or so escaped.

That's alot of spiders. I can't imagine that there's enough insects to keep them all fed and happy.

Wonder what they've been eating.

#3130246 Mad Max - Fury Road

Posted by dos poptarts on 11 December 2014 - 03:32 PM

After Ridley let me down with Prometheus.....I'm not ready to jump completely in with Miller with resurrecting older franchises...but damn, this trailer looks awesome.....the teaser trailer that was released months ago had me worried.

I love the Mad Max trilogy. Please, please don't let me down with this one.
