    UFC 2020

    I was super impressed by how Poirier fought off of his back. Constant real and diverse submission attempts as well as a high striking volume from the bottom. It was really impressive and I felt like Hooker was in danger the entire time he was in Dustin's guard. The switch from the arm bar to the...

    2020 Broncos: Lock and Roll

    The other factor driving the line was that an AFC team hadn't won the Super Bowl in 14 years before that. The AFC was looked at as the JV conference and Denver's resume as inflated by playing in the weaker conference.

    2020 Broncos: Lock and Roll

    Third best in my opinion. The 2010 Packers were a 10-6 team that had a 12-4 point differential and the losses were: 2 losses with the back up QB 2 overtime losses 2 losses on last second kicks They were 4th in DVOA, 7th in Offensive efficiency, 2nd in Defense, but peaked mightily in the second...

    2020 Raiders: Cleaning Up Las Vegas

    The first pictures of the Al Davis torch in the north end zone have hit the internet. Supposedly it is one of the world’s largest 3D printed objects. View: https://twitter.com/gorillarilla/status/1267547805943394306?s=21

    UFC 2020

    Gathje & Trevor Wittman were on with Rogan this week. With the exception of Witmman spending 30 minutes doing a promo for selling his fight gloves, it is a hell of an interview for fight fans.

    2020 Raiders: Cleaning Up Las Vegas

    They told us the same thing at both of our meetings. The process of having to go to the ticket meetings at the Raiders ticket sales center in Vegas to get a PSL probably dissuaded quite a few non Raider fans from buying in. Our Oakland ticket agent repeated the same lines, and we were given a...

    UFC 2020

    The two women’s matches are very interesting. I believe this is Dern’s first fight after having a kid. I’m a huge Woodley fan, I hope the horrible Usman performance was an aberration or he’ll be in trouble.

    2020 Raiders: Cleaning Up Las Vegas

    I think the environmental control will keep that from being too big of an issue. On the subject of environmental control, it will be interesting to see when they open the Lanai doors on the north end of the stadium, both from the standpoint of what it does to the environmental control system...

    2020 Raiders: Cleaning Up Las Vegas

    Why would the Raiders want almost everything in the stadium to be black? I'm gonna ask you to think on that one for a bit. The roof isn't glass, by the way, it is a plastic polymer. Here are some good pictures from the inside showing how much light it the roof lets into the stadium: View...

    2020 Raiders: Cleaning Up Las Vegas

    There are over 25K spots associated with the stadium, 15K within walking distance. Only 2.5K are on site. The rest have a bus network that links them to the stadium. Of course none of that matters because the casinos are going to sell tailgating events in their parking lots that will probably...

    UFC 2020

    I feel awful for Walt Harris. I thought he had the Rheem put away, but that hip heist that Rheem did to reverse the position in round 1 was gorgeous. View: https://twitter.com/espnmma/status/1261886728991674368?s=21 This graphic from ESPN really stuck with me. What a weird night, I would’ve...

    The post was reported and not exporting political conversations to non political threads is a point of emphasis.

    2020 Golf Thread

    The water is warm in V&N if you want to talk the politics of golfing, but that's not happening here. I deleted a comment about the politics of golfing during times of Corona Virus, but @Doug Beerabelli, if you tell me where you want me to put it in V&N, I'll happily move it there.

    Kobe Killed in Helicopter Crash

    Feel free at any point to provide an example of a part 121 or 135 operator that killed passengers and wasn't sued by the estate(s) of the dead passengers. I think you are projecting your distaste for the deceased onto the widow (who also lost her not selling many sneakers daughter) and I don't...

    NFL Playoffs Expansion with a Potential 17th Game

    I love the idea, and after a few years of space from Brady / Belichick you guys will love it too. The number 1 seed should be a huge advantage. A six game wild card weekend would be spectacular. From purely the fan / season ticket holder perspective, I would almost be just as excited to get...

    Tottenham Hotspur 2019-20: Jose can you see?

    What a perfect situation for Jose. If they finish 8th or 9th and get run out of the two Cups, it wasn't really his fault and he gets a fresh start for next year with only two (3) competitions to focus on in 2021. If they somehow get into the top 4(5) or in the UCL semis or win the FA Cup, it is...

    Kobe Killed in Helicopter Crash

    A few problems with the "IFR hover" -Helicopter (or any pitot static system) airspeed indicators are not terribly accurate below 40 knots. So achieving 0 airspeed is a relative thing. -The air is not still. You have to make near constant (but not too constant) inputs to the main rotor to stay...

    Kobe Killed in Helicopter Crash

    Helicopter pilots use visual references to hover. You can't do that inside of a cloud.
