    Tom Brady retires

    To the extent we are representative of Pats fans, IIRC, we had a poll shortly after TB12 bolted, where around 75-80% would root for Brady if there was no conflict of interest (ie a Pats-Buc SB).

    Poll: Pick your preferred post-season path to posterity. Pain or Pleasure?

    We've got a few days (or maybe a few hours) to kill as the Astros and other Sox settle their LDS squabble. But of those two teams, who would you like to see the Crimson Hose, or whatever color sox they're selling that day, play in the ALCS? And to further complicate matters lets call it...

    Poll: Cam, Mac, Brian or?

    As we approach the second exhibition game tonight it appears Cam has the edge to start the season at QB. He has experience, BB's public confidence, is a snappy dresser, and along with some new offensive tools to work with and a decent defense could lead the Pats into a shallow play-off run...

    Tonight: MFY@ Rays for 3. Who you rooting for?

    These ethical conundrums come up from time to time, where morality bangs heads with self-interest. So the Sox seem to have the MFY balls tucked in their back pocket and the MFY seem all but dead for the division. However they are still are very alive for the Wild Card (3 1/2 games out of the...

    The Poll: Is Wyc burning Brad- Should CBS be torched at season's end?

    Lets quantify where SoSH stands on CBS' future Seems self explanatory Vote is public I'm a no , while I wish he were a little more fiery and demonstrative, and a little quicker to use a TO, I think Brad's a better than average NBA coach, who has been whacked with some bad breaks beyond his...

    NBA Accounting: S&T, TPE, and Gordon

    To our resident NBA capologists and trade mavens, (which I am not) assuming Danny and his golf buddy in Charlotte are still kicking around a S&T, how do you value it from Ainge's perspective? Or from MJ's? MJs position seems easier to grasp, if he's amenable its found money, but he can squeeze...

    Gordo-In or Out? Green or gone?

    Self explanatory This should be short-lived as we have about an hour or so before Gordon decides. Green or gone? For the sake of argument (I have no idea what he's thinking) Gordo opts in and signs a 3 years extension worth around $70 million, for a total value of $104 million over the next 4...

    Poll-ALCS Game 7 Good v Evil the poll

    Does it ever rain in San Diego-I mean torrentially, biblically, because if there was ever a year or a series for an end of times rain delay this series in 2020 seems to fit the bill. Although on the bright side the MFYs aren't playing. Normally I wouldn't root for either the Astro's or Rays...

    Poll: The Sting 2020- Brady and Gronk

    View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKJiXOW5fOc Was it a long con? Did Gondorff and Hooker play Belichick for their freedom, another ride on the merry-go-round, and a shot at a championship with a stacked offense in Tampa, and have a few laughs along the way? View...

    Poll: AB or not AB that is the question

    AB or not AB that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer The swings and misses ot outrageous PR and hot takes but in the absence of hard evidence play the guy sunday Or to succumb to the sea of troubles And by opposing him, to cut him and to sleep less conflicted, I should...

    All things being equal and they never are-where do you want Kawhi to go?

    As we wait for the last and biggest free-agent shoe to drop, where do you want those Kawhi's 16EEs to end up? Part of me hopes he stays in Toronto as they took a chance and it paid off, and having him in the East is ok even if it makes it tough on the Celts. The Clippers would be fine too...

    Frank Robinson RIP

    An alltime great ballplayer, a legit 5-tool superstar, who was overshadowed in the more colorful NL, but found his glory when traded to Baltimore in 1966. A tough SOB who was also baseball's first A-A manager. https://www.baseball-reference.com/players/r/robinfr02.shtml RIP Frank

    2018 NYFG: How offensive are Opie, the O-line & Odell?

    The New York Football Giants are shaping up to be a shit-show of finger-pointing, second guessing and a lot of bad football this year. And it appears there is no thread. So...
