    Have you ever seen....and would it bother you if...

    The Back court "violation" call made me ask myself... "What if the Refs didnt know an (obviously obscure) rule....and brought out a rule book to check. Would I mind?" Would you? And has this ever happened before in any sport you can recall? What level? I think I would be happier that they were...

    Kansas-K State Brawl

    Didnt watch it live, I only saw the last 10 seconds and subsequent fight. See it here I am curious who was more in the wrong as far as breach of basketball etiquette? (with the understanding that both teams should have controlled themselves) (And this might lead to an interesting discussion...

    2020 Pats Off-Season: The Succession Plan...No Not Him....or Him

    So Bob Kraft is 78. Granted medicine is amazing now. As I am sure is his medical care and quality of life. However its not out of the realm that in 1-2 or 3 years RK has either passed on, or is not up to the day to day operations of the Patriots. (maybe that time has been here and I missed...

    Goalie Training Suggestions

    So my daughter is the Goalie on her u12 team. She is pretty good. Partly from some talent, partly from having played Goalie for the last 3 seasons full time. So while other teams rotated girls through the position as a "Chore" IE "Ok Ann...you have to be goalie for the first half and...

    2019 Pats: Ages and Roster Breakdowns

    With the Trade Deadline looming and the possibilities of extensions and trading Draft Picks I thought it might be interesting to look at the roster compared to the average age of an NFL player, their "contribution" (*) and position. Here is my basic break down: Avg Age or Below ('94+) Butler...

    Vets who could be cut and might interest the Pats

    So did some google searches and found some of the following names. Delanie Walker TE Titans: He is under contract through 2020, and it clearly wouldn’t be easy for the Titans to cut him now, from a cap standpoint. The problem is, he’s 35 and he played just one game last year, after signing a...

    Simple Iphone Question

    So I have had an Iphone for about 6 months. I basically use it for some Pod Casts, some texting (2-5 a day) and a couple calls (2-5). I play an occasional time waster. I have used IPODs before and decided I wanted to add some music to the IPhone to play in the car. I am pretty inexperienced...

    Is 100 Years long enough? The Shoeless Joe Thread.

    I recently listened to a pod cast about the Black Sox. It brought up some interesting questions in regard to Shoeless Joe Jackson. We can certainly discuss his possible involvement in the Scandal. But I guess a better question is should the MLB HOF finally allow him in? Even 100 years later...

    Assume you're a Free agent...

    The Mike Trout Money had a few coworkers and I discussing Free Agency. Assume you are offered 300 Million over 15 Years. Your 25, so young, but will be late 40 at the end of your contract. Your Married with 1 young (4yo) Child so they will grow up were ever you choose. You were born on a...

    How much of an Advantage is Experience?

    The Patriots obviously know this time of the year. Not just the players but the coaches. It occurred to me while watching the games yesterday that the Pats and BB must have a preparation plan in place for playoffs/by weeks etc. For instance would it surprise any of us that BB an the coaches...

    2019-the Cap Situation:is a "rebuild on the fly" possible

    OTC says that going into 2019 the Pats will have 21.9 Million in cap money. The can gain more by: Cutting D. Allen (+7.4) Claybourne (+4) (2 Mil dead money) Hightower (+5.375) (5 Mil dead money) (there are others like Cyrus the Virus for about 1 mil, Ebner for 2.2 mil and Slater for 2.5, Not...

    Gordons Production

    So EEI had an all day sploogefest of trying to determine "What will Josh Gordon Provide". While it was bad radio i did think it was an interesting question. Feel free to add Yardage and what you think a "Good result" would be. For instance maybe you think that 35 catches would be a good...

    Guess How many trades tonight

    So how often will Bill deal? As an aside, how many 1st round trades will there be for ALL teams? With as many questions and moving parts this could be a very fluid draft.

    Newbie Veer Question

    We are getting a new HS Coach. Looks like a long term thing. I am one of the more senior members of the Youth football Coaching/Board. The new coach looks to be bringing in the Veer (splitback). In the past we have predominantly ran an I, with occasional Pro and power variants. So in an effort...

    State Secrets- Can a Player give his team an edge against his old team

    I mentioned I was a little worried about Long and Blount despite the fact that on a weekly basis as a whole we poopoo the idea that any advantage is gained by a new team. But I am not so sure. I am not sure where to start. With so much movement it seems difficult to do this all at once...

    Best HS Football Traditions

    I am part of a youth program. Recently the Czar of our youth (and MS) program was (finally) hired as the head coach of our HS team. Despite a lot of success at the youth/MS level our HS team has always struggled. 0 for seasons were common with total points around the 20s for the season (while...

    Lets Talk Brissett

    A big factor in the JG situation is "whether the Patriots want to go into 2017 without a proven Backup" Many have stated that JG gives that kind of insurance while Brissett is still unproven. While there isnt alot of meat, what there is indicates to me other wise. First lets establish what we...
