    Recommend me a 55-65 inch TV

    I love YouTube TV, but the picture quality for regular HD channels is worse than cable (and from what I've read online other streaming providers as well) especially my local channels. CBS NFL games are noticeably better on Paramount Plus. Another downside is that YTTV does not support content...

    Recommend me a 55-65 inch TV

    Yeah, I thought 4K was going to be the game-changing technology, but Fox's broadcast is actually just upscaled 1080p (still more detailed than its 720p HD feed). HDR might actually make the biggest difference maker. The colors (especially the Cowboys' white uniforms) and contrast was amazing. I...

    2022-23 NBA Game Thread

    Turned off the ugly NFL game because I haven’t seen much of the Kings all year. Davion Mitchell just made a three on an alley oop attempt.

    Zendejas scores a golazo for América View: https://twitter.com/tudnusa/status/1616989915731861506 Also how cool is that goal celebration at Azteca?! In other dual national news, David Ochoa didn’t make the bench for Revs League Cup opponent Atlético de San Luis.

    Major League Soccer 2023: Now With League-On-League Violence

    Surely @ThePrideofShiner is aware of allocation order because how else would the Sounders have acquired >$500,000 USMNT player Clint Dempsey. Just kidding, he wasn’t subject to allocation because he was designated player of a certain “threshold.” What is that threshold? No one knows and Garber...

    Are you telling me the Boston Herald is an extant publication and they have a baseball writer?

    Serie A: Anybody's League?

    One of the most entertaining halves of the season so far. Napoli lead 2-1 at the half. Ángel Di María has scored once and hit the crossbar for Juventus. Kvara continues a great week for Georgia.

    Major League Soccer 2023: Now With League-On-League Violence

    Could be a fun match. I got way too invested in Tigres vs. Bayern (first Concacaf team to appear in the final) so seeing an MLS team in that spot would be cool. I don’t usually post memes on SoSH, but…

    USMNT: Soccer's Coming Home

    Unsurprising given this is the USSF's first television negotiation. Perhaps it would have been prudent to align themselves with a business entity that mutually benefits from growing the game of soccer in America. This hypothetical soccer marketing union could then use their combined market power...

    Major League Soccer 2023: Now With League-On-League Violence

    That also helps explain the LAFC spending spree. Remember Bale wasn’t a DP, so this likely frees up a boatload of allocation dollars. EDIT Putting some numbers in this, Bale’s compensation was $2,386,667 and the maximum budget charge was $612,500

    Vonleh Traded to San Antonio

    True, I should have said it's free money if and only if San Antonio stays under the floor, which is pretty rare historically but it did happen last year. (I can't believe the salary cap is so confusing for casual fans!)

    Footy broadcasting - What do we have?

    Taylor Twellman has left ESPN View: https://twitter.com/TaylorTwellman/status/1611390907622002689 This makes sense because ESPN has exited American soccer. They've lost the rights to USSF and MLS events previously negotiated through SUM. USMNT, USWNT, and Open Cup matches will be on Warner...
