    Give Montreal the worst team left if they get out of the 5-12 round (though it also screws potentially toronto)

    Did he say if they are reseeding after every round or is it a fixed bracket? I assume fixed because reseeding would make too much sense for this league considering they reseeded for years before changing the format.

    A more fair way would be for 4 to play 3 for the 3 seed, then the winner of that plays 2 for the 2 seed, then the winner of that play 1 for the 1 seed, so teams could still move up but the higher seed would have a distinct advantage and could only drop 1 spot. Being able to drop from 1 to 4 is...

    2020 Raiders: Cleaning Up Las Vegas

    Probably a lot because the market is going to be insane, at least the first year, though part of the PSL pitch did include them asking people where they lived and how many games they actually planned on going to to try and limit that, no idea if they actually rejected people who they suspected...

    2020 Raiders: Cleaning Up Las Vegas

    I know that when they sold PSLs in theory they prioritized selling to Raider fans if possible. I have a friend in LA that's a big Raiders fan and I went to the meeting when he bought his seats and the guy said they were trying to avoid selling too many that would end up with visiting fans.

    2020 Raiders: Cleaning Up Las Vegas

    Yeah that's the one, though I forgot how far away it is, actually way more than 30 miles. Being that far away seems like it should have been a total non starter for anyone actually going to or coming from LA itself

    2020 Raiders: Cleaning Up Las Vegas

    Yes, well kind of, it's going to go from Vegas to somewhere that's like 30 miles north of LA which I feel like somewhat defeats the purpose, but I guess it's cheaper that way to build. They've been working on figuring out the funding plans, they decided on the company to build it, but it's...

    What info do you wish you could get out of Belichick?

    How good did he actually think Brady would be, both when he drafted him and when he kept him as the 4th qb. Who does he consider both his best and worst draft picks and why just because it would be interesting to get in his head as to the skill vs luck part of drafting

    Gone Brady Gone

    So there's no way they get BB for this right? I can't see him being interviewed for a documentary about an active player who plays for another team. Seems like it would have made way more sense to wait until he's retired and then you can get all the pats management to talk publicly.

    2020 Raiders: Cleaning Up Las Vegas

    I've assumed this had to be the idea for months, because it makes too much sense, but haven't heard anything about it. Even with a walkway, that's not exactly going to be a fun walk during the day in August or September.

    Alex Verdugo - on-field discussion thread

    It would, but anyone who actually believes that is ignoring the current baseball economy, as was discussed months ago, trading him made it far more likely that they eventually resign him.

    MLB Suspending ST Games and Regular Season Delayed At Least 2 Weeks

    The 15-20 guys are probably playing scrimmages vs themselves as a pseudo minor league team in order to stay sharp when players get sick or injured.

    "We're going to Disney World!" NBA "on track" to resume season at WDW

    Endorsements aren't tied with a certain team though. If Nike told a guy, we'll pay you $20 million to wear our shoes and sign with a team I find it really hard to believe that would fly. I also feel like for campaign to even make any sense part of taking the 24m is that he'll sign with whatever...

    "We're going to Disney World!" NBA "on track" to resume season at WDW

    I have no idea what thread this belongs in, but Spencer Dinwiddie may have gone crazy during the quarantine. He's trying to raise a go fund me for $24m+ in bitcoin to let fans pick what team he signs with next. Don't ask how that works or how it wouldn't be a blatant cap violation. View...

    2020 Raiders: Cleaning Up Las Vegas

    The secondary market for tickets for games that there's a pretty decent chance won't be played in front of fans for Raiders tickets this year is absolutely insane, $1100 average per ticket.
