    Newcastle 2018-19: Perpetually "For Sale"

    Martin Dubravka signed to a permanent dealúbravka-deal He's kinda perfect for us. He's 29 so probably too old to get snapped up if he goes on a tear. And when he gets too old Freddie Woodman should be experienced enough to...

    2018 Proposed CFB Rules Changes

    The football rules committee has proposed a few rules changes. The oversight panel reviews changes in April. 1. Kickoff fair catches This seems like the biggest proposed change. A kickoff returner could call a fair catch inside the 25, and it results in a touchback. This extends the touchback...

    Tennis 2018

    Murray and Nishikori are out of the Aussie Open, and Djokavic is unsure if he'll play. Might be an easy path for Fed and Rafa unless a young guy steps up

    Zomp is so excited I'm pretty psyched too. Miocic is going for a record 3rd consecutive HW title defense. Ngannou has had a quick rise but damn that power.

    Newcastle 2017-18: Regurgitating into the Fireplace

    Tennis 2017

    Serena's 20 weeks pregnant (meaning she won Aussie pregnant without dropping a set). She's out of the rest of the slams though. Who will step up? Sharapova comes back from her doping ban this month, Venus might be a value bet at Wimbledon. Edit thanks SoxJox:D

    2017 Butler Watch: Love Me Tender

    Butler talk has invaded a bunch of other threads so here's a thread for him. With Gilmore setting the market at $13m/yr, if Butler plays for the $4m+ tender this year (and doesn't get hurt) he should be able to get at least 3/39 next year, which would make about 4/44 over the 4 year span...
