    Super Bowl LIV: Chiefs vs 49ers Game Thread

    I'm really happy for Andy Reid, he's been an excellent head coach over the last 20 years in terms of consistently winning with multiple different teams and quarterbacks, he really deserved to have a ring under his belt (as a head coach).

    The Athletic: The Astros stole signs electronically in 2017 part of a much broader issue for Major League Baseball

    Yea, I should have thrown the IANAD disclaimer out there, had no idea if that was even a feasible reason.

    The Athletic: The Astros stole signs electronically in 2017 part of a much broader issue for Major League Baseball

    I haven't seen this posted in any of the threads yet, seems like this is the best place to put it: We're reaching a new level of absurdity here. The MLB can't have people coming out of the woodwork taking snipes at random teams and players in some kind of dirty laundry arms race. And even if...

    Cora in line for major suspension?

    Feel like there's some hindsight bias being applied here. If the Yankees chose to pass on Cora because they knew something about what was going on in Houston and wanted to stay away from it, I doubt they'd have hired Beltran as a special advisor for this past season. And there was an earlier...

    Not quite. That throw was absolute money.

    2019 TB12: Everyday Is Like Sunday

    I mean, that's just a positive feedback system at work isn't it? 1. People write stories about Brady wanting to leave after this year. 2. Ticket prices increase in case it's Brady's last game as a Patriot. 3. People see ticket prices for the last home game increasing. 4. Go back to Step 1.

    2020 Pats: Bengals Coach Implies Patriots Taping Play Signals

    I'm so fucking tired of this shit with the NFL, so fucking tired. And on the one hand I understand why a lot in here are saying "the Patriots should know they have to be extra careful with everything they do." But on the other hand, it kind of feels like victim blaming to me (for lack of a much...

    Celebrating What Is

    I'm 30 and since the last time they failed to win 10, I have graduated middle school, high school, college, and been a real-life adult with a career for almost 10 years. I was a 12 year old kid watching Brady win that first Superbowl. Whenever Brady retires, it's going to be like the last link...

    The Athletic: The Astros stole signs electronically in 2017 part of a much broader issue for Major League Baseball

    I'm pretty confident that losing Sale, Price, and Eovaldi, while simultaneously having an atrocious bullpen, led to the demise of the 2019 Red Sox. Every post-WS Red Sox team sans 2007-2008 followed up with a hell of a WS hangover too.

    The Athletic: The Astros stole signs electronically in 2017 part of a much broader issue for Major League Baseball

    See, I have a problem with this narrative. If the other teams were able to tell the Nats what to look out for, then how can those teams reasonably claim that they lost to Houston due to an unfair advantage gained via sign stealing? And with the number of claims that teams throughout the league...

    I was the fat kid on the high school tennis team who was gassed after a set so I can't really relate.
