    FanGraphs is in Financial Trouble

    They’re basically my #1 outlet for baseball news and modern commentary on the game of baseball, and that especially holds true these days to be a much needed escape and distraction. Ringer presents a pretty grim picture. It’s a tough time for all of us with larger issues afoot. Any way we can...

    2019 Alabama Football: Is #13 #1?

    Made one of these two years ago. Success. Didn't make one last year? Shame on me. Clemson drubbed, lack of any kind of red zone offense, IOL struggled without Cornbread Brown, suspended. So yeah, this team is ungodly stacked. Even for a Saban team. The only real question I have is who plays...

    Romo and Juliet: the Art of Pre-called Plays

    I've had the same question, given I think this is personally a repeatable skill for even someone like me who watches a ton of film, but never played a down at any level. Yes, that's a humblebrag. Before any snap, this is my thought process: Look at the down lineman and their technique, count...

There's genuinely an unknown amount of amazing items that on offer that can be given here, given this community's continued outreach, amazing ability, and endless connections. As this is a sporting academy...

    Let's get this party for the Boston Athletic Academy started!

    So, here's a good place to give some basic primers. If you have anything that could help intrigue folks for the Boston Athletic Academy, no matter what it may be, just send me a PM to get its approval, and I'll more than likely approve it that same evening at the latest. That could be tickets to...

    2018 Alabama Football: How about a nice Hawaiian Punch?

    It's another year in T-Town, with a deity's worth of incoming freshman 5-star recruits (Harris, Leatherwood, Moses, Jeudy, Ray, Tua), although with the caveat of losing 10 players to Sundays alone this past draft, most in the Common Draft era for the program, plus three more as UDFAs (Mazza...

    Personal findings of Improving Baseball Savant: Where to go with my findings?

    Hi everyone, kind of an odd way to start, but this topic is kind of odd, if awfully fun, too. So here goes. I've been looking at some Baseball Savant stuff over the past six months or so, which sounds pretty normal, right? Thing is, I've realized through a bit of in-depth look at it just how...

    Interest in a new AHL metrics Project?

    So, my friend who works for the Reign and I are working on a project called AnAHLytics, which is a delve into AHL analytics at a further level, and we'll need a fair share of folks. Basically, we're trying to be the Football Outsiders of the AHL, by contributor numbers needed. You'd need time to...

    All the haywire is gone: The non-MVP hardware discussion

    We've got MVP, but why not cover the other awards? We're a better board than to only discuss only quarterback play, right? Figure we'd get some rookies, coaches, and honestly some teams proper recognition or smites. Here's some basic ideas to throw out, add more to the list if you want to...

    Brady vs. Manning: Media Comparison Discussion Thread

    Honestly, I think this substory has no business in a thread devoted to the news and upkeep of the Al Jazeera/Peyton Manning/Teagarden/etc. story. If you want to compare how the two are being covered, talk about it here. Not terribly in favor of this thread myself, but in order to make a higher...

    Approaching League Commissioners with football format scoring issues

    Odd question, I know, but I look at my football league that I do a podcast with, and it's absolutely FUBAR. Too many bonuses to the point where it doesn't resemble even basic fantasy. If you're not scoring over 130, good luck. 200 points is a decently normal high score. Drew Brees had over 80...
