    Skiing 19-20

    Looks like April 12 is Jackson's closing day. I'd consider staying in Teton Village if you're not going to be there too long or skiing is your priority. I'd rather drive or ride the bus (which works pretty well) into Jackson in the afternoon/evening without ski gear than deal with getting into...

    Why Do I Continue to Read Peter King?

    I wasn't trying to turn this into Where's Tom?! I just got a kick out of the fact that what he (PK) wrote is roughly the equivalent of describing a view of central park, then saying "I won't name the city."

    Why Do I Continue to Read Peter King?

    This line stood out to me because the Yellowstone Club is a fairly exclusive gated community with its own ski mountain. You've got to own or be with an owner to ski there. So either Brady's worried about Justin Timberlake and Matt Damon poaching his lines, or it was a joke that went right over...

    Tony Dungy: We Stole Signals, Everyone Steals Signals

    This is also where we get Goodell expanding his power. He can't change the rules of the game in a memo and the rules (per Dr. Gonzo) clearly stated it only mattered if you used it during the game. The memo misquoted the rule. I don't think you'll find anyone who won't say that BB should have, at...

    Chandler Jones traded for G Jonathan Cooper & Arizona's 2016 Rd. 2 pick

    Don't want to bring everything back to PSI but I'm pretty sure because of how the penalty was worded the Pats can't do better than their own (obviously late) first rounder this year. Does anyone know if the synthetic incident put Jones on the more rigorous testing regimen?

    MLB to offer single-team MLB.tv packages in 2016

    I did specifically use Paypal in case there was still some check on billing address. I'm not sure when they started accepting Paypal but I do know that a few years back my boss had to have someone else buy it for him because of that check. I've had it the last 2 years and streamed from my phone...

    MLB to offer single-team MLB.tv packages in 2016

    I live in Wyoming currently but my bank + billing address is still in Vermont. I just use Paypal and have had no issues. Well, Rockies games are blacked out.

    SportsCenter and OTL bringing back Spygate (live, 9AM)

      One of the reasons that I've given Belichick a lot of deference on this is because the memo misquoted the rule at the time. The actual rule was "No video recording devices of any kind are permitted to be in use in the coaches’ booth, on the field, or in the locker room during the game.” Coming...

    #DFG: Canceling the Noise

      How many board members do you think it takes to get to a ton? I think 10 is a conservative estimate.   I'll take the votes of 10 people who have actually followed the facts and debate over any number of people who basically clicked the "I hate the Patriots" button. But feel free to put your...

    Why Do I Continue to Read Peter King?

    Hasn't it been well established that PK loves to do exactly as he's told?

    #DFG: Canceling the Noise

      That gets into the memo vs. the rule though. The rule says field which means the actual playing area - inside the pylons so to speak. It would prohibit a player from wearing a video camera while on the field. The memo updates it to include the sidelines which, from my understanding, should...

    #DFG: Canceling the Noise

    Something that every Pats fan should know: Belichick did not ignore a rule. He ignored a memo which did not state the rule it was referencing correctly. If you want to change the rules and bylaws of the NFL, it cannot be done in a memo, although AB has a legit argument that the NFL basically did...

    #DFG: Canceling the Noise

      Yet the league either tried to change a rule with a memo (can't do that) or didn't even know the rule they were referencing in said memo. I'll agree that just ignoring it is not how he should have handled things but lets not pretend that BB straight ignored it because he didn't like it.

    #DFG: Canceling the Noise

      That brings up an interesting point. Are we supposed to believe that TB plays with balls at 2 different PSI values for home/away games? As someone who seems to be very particular about having an extremely regimented schedule and approach to his life in general that makes little/no sense.

    #DFG: Canceling the Noise

    "More probable than not" .... "Brady was at least generally aware of the inappropriate activities". Apparently the first part has a legal meaning according to the NFL. But the second? What's the definition there? Because from what I've seen it seems most likely that after the Jets game Brady...

    2017 Gronk: Mojo Gronk

    2017 Gronk: Mojo Gronk

    Brodie: It's impossible, Lois could never have Superman's baby. Do you think her fallopian tubes could handle the sperm? I guarantee you he blows a load like a shotgun right through her back. What about her womb? Do you think it's strong enough to carry her child? TS: Sure, why not? Brodie: He's...

    NFL Network: All Pats Today - Concluding With Super Bowl Replay.

    Yeah, it was talked about earlier with the scene from Belichick's A Football Life but those six inches aren't really going to hurt you that much. Especially when Seattle gives you five yards back before the next snap. I think Browner is worth the penalties but I also think stuff like that...

    BbtL/Patriots Nation Super Bowl Roll Call

    Jackson, WY. Just me and my roomate, don't want to deal with people until afterwards.
