  1. Saints/Pats would be Atlanta’s worst nightmare this season

    Orville Season 2

    Too bad. Interesting that both this show and the show it parodies had their security officer leave the show after one season.

    Orville Season 2

    Alara was my favorite character. I wonder why she left.

    Americans killed by ISIS in Syria

    Should have pulled out quicker...or better yet, never gone to being with.
  5. I have no interest in football whatsoever outside of the Panthers and have not in awhile so I would never root for another team. I finally gave up on CFB completely this year and I honestly did not miss it. I am not sure I would ever stop being a fan, although my interest right now really is at a low point. The three things that could do it for me... 1) The team moves, if that happened I would never watch another football game for the balance of my life 2) I or my brother moves. I think we would both still be fans, but part of the reason we spend the money on the package is because we watch the game together. In this scenario I think we would likely just watch the games that are broadcast locally and just check the scores on the rest 3) Something happens to completely turn me against the NFL the way I have with the NCAA or did with the NHL fifteen years ago. I Was a huge Avalanche fan growing up. When they cancelled the entire season I found better things to do with my time and by the time they came back I did not care.
  6. To me the most blame lies with Ryan’ for it starting and McConnell for it continuing. The votes were/are there to end the shutdown and there is nothing Trump can do about it. They just refuse to allow votes. Trump is third for making this non-issue an issue. Schumer himself cannot block a vote but Senate Democrats as a whole would be fourth for promising to filibuster any wall bill both before the new Congress. Not sure how much blame Pelosi gets. Yes, she will not allow such a vote but the votes are no longer their anyway.

    Bird Box

  8. Could also be a great spot for players to go to avoid being tagged.
  9. Coaches and institutions get rich while kids either give up their bodies for free or go into major debt paying for overpriced schooling. Seems like an excellent system
  10. Will they also sign players out of HS? Otherwise I feel the XFL could have a leg up in the long run if done right. Interesting that both leagues have teams in Orlando, Memphis, and Birmingham. The others will have no direct competition in their respective markets.
  11. Not a threat to NFL but could effect NCAA. If the pay is enough and quality of coaches good then they could develop into a decent minor league system where players get paid and do not have to pass Western Humanities to play. If they were successful that way then you could see other leagues try the same tactic, forcing NCAA to change. Not holding my breath but I would love this scenario.

    For those who don't want the border wall

    Canada probably should though

    We should not be spending that money either.

    House Seeks To Abolish The Electoral College

    Those two electoral votes is where the problem comes in. That is 102 extra votes that disproportionately go to states like WY, ND, and others that are largely lacking people. If you take the Mountain Time Zone (ID, UT, AZ, MT, WY, CO, NM) and throw in ND, NE, and KS you get to 55 electoral votes. Those states had 24,716,950 as of the last census. Meanwhile, CA also has 55 electoral votes and a population of 37,253,956. More than 50% more residents, same number of electoral votes. Not a fair system at all. If you wanted to make the EC “fair” then give each state one vote per congressional district plus DC and get rid of the other 102 votes. Would not be perfect, but would be much closer to representing the country.
  15. If I were ever elected it would be a tough call. Should I get sworn in on my copy of Die Hard or with a bottle of Jack Daniel’s

    Unborn Victims of Violence Act

    US law also once defined slaves as three-fifths of a person so I can see why they would have a lot of credibility on this subject

    Y'all Mad

    I am worse than mad...I am indifferent. That is the last place a sports team wants its fans.
  18. Agreed. Besides, no longer following a sport does not make someone a bandwagon fan. It is not like they are switching allegiances or something.

    Rivera's wife cryptic tweet

    It means that I should be grateful that my great-grandfather was a Red Sox fan because because the Hornets and Panthers will forever be content with mediocrity.

    11 year old charged with murder...

    Parents should be charged too. I am 100% in favor of responsible gun ownership. If your gun is used to commit a crime then you are not a responsible gun owner.

    Nah, it is their way of trying to force us to pay for B/R Live. FOX use to show matches on both FS1 and FS2 so you could watch both during knockout rounds. I use to rush home (or to the bar) from work on those days and watch both games. Not possible this year without paying extra, which I refuse to do for one competition that is only on during the week.

    Wind River

    I loved that film. It was originally put out by the Weinstein Company, which sadly cost those involved in the film during awards season. Would have had a lot more recognition.

    I have watched one game. They need to show more games. One positive to playing Liverpool is the first leg is televised. If the second leg is not televised or if Bayern somehow makes it through and either QF match is not televised then I will be done with the competition for the season. Not wasting my time on a product that they do not want me to see. Cannot believe that neither Barca nor Real will have their first leg televised.
