Not concerning at all, just going to be more fun. Those aren't team celebrations, close though. I bet some attitudes will change with less pay, especially if they have to play an extra game next year.

#28602 15 days ago

I've been out of the football loop this season...
Is Doug William's still the Washington Quarterback??
Go Washington! Sis boom bah.

Quoted from vicjw66:

If I were anyone other than Jacksonville with the first pick, I would seriously consider taking that receiver from Alabama. He is incredibl....

I dont know how, much you can bulk him up?
25lbs lighter than Cooper Cup! I kept waiting for his little legs to snap in half, luckily it was just his finger.

#28604 15 days ago

Damn fell asleep at half time but I see nothing changed OSU was just outclassed by Alabama period.

#28605 15 days ago

I've known them personally for 30+ years. Can't stand them.

Maybe they should just give the natty to whoever wins the SEC west.

If it wasn't for Clemson they would.
EDIT: Although lets see how they do without Lawrence.

#28608 14 days ago

Now that we have the tweens interested in football, maybe we should get the old timers back in this weekend with a simulcast on MeTV. Maybe throw in some of the sound fx from Madden 94 so they get the illusion they're watching old school hard nosed football.

#28609 14 days ago

Size is certainly a concern. He looks like he’s 15 years old and is still growing so I would expect him to put on some weight over the next few years. Alabama wide receivers do well in the NFL, not like their qbs.

#28611 14 days ago

It was a welcome surprise to wake up and see the 13-0 Alabama beat 7-1 Ohio State. I thought the fresher team would win that game.

#28612 14 days ago

Seahawks locked down the best GM in football through the 27 draft.

Remember when Whysnow was running around here moronically claiming that the NFL season is scripted like wrestling?

I guess we'll find out if he was right!

I checked sporting news. Lynch as #1? I think the deal to bring in jimmyg should knock him back at least a few places. Veach is #2, but as far as I know most of those big pieces were brought in under John Dorsey.

I'd personally take Schneider over anyone, at least until those other guys provide a larger sample at the same rate of success.

All the evidence is right there in front of you, stop being a sheep and follow the bread trail!!

The best team in the league also just happened to win the SB last year. Coincidence..? Yeah, right!

That's what THEY want you to think.

Imagine going through life thinking those Buffalo Wild Wing ads where they extend the game to improve boneless wing sales are a documentary.

Yeah I think those are all from the beginning of a season anyway, how much diff'rence a few months can make.

Veach gets a ton of credit in KC for Mahomes. He was the guy that was all in on him. Talked to him and his agent a ton. There are a few good articles out there. Obviously he wasn't the guy with final trigger pull authority, but he likely convinced coach and Dorsey. He has also managed to re-sign all our stars to pretty nice team friendly deals recently. We had multiple covid opt outs that he managed to navigate. He rebuilt our defense rather quickly as well. Not too worried about him and how he ranks, but very happy with the job he is doing so far.

#28621 14 days ago

Are you saying you are happy with the "product" they are "putting on the field."

A part of me dies inside, every time marketing people use that term like that.

The only product you F***ing put on the field is white paint for the yard markers.

Get off my lawn!

#28625 14 days ago

He's right. Boneless "wings" bring shame on us all.

Bone-in or GTFO.

#28626 14 days ago

Boneless wings are fine.
They are called chicken nuggets and my daughter loves them.

#28627 14 days ago

Yeah boneless are just Buffalo chicken nuggets.

#28628 14 days ago

DAMN RIGHT!

Quoted from Jaybird815:

I 100% agree!

Real wings have BONES!

Anything else is just nuggets and who knows what else may be mixed in for filler. (I don't 100% trust food companies anymore).

And back to the NFL, I hope the Broncos can have a awesome draft!

In the meantime I am looking forward to the next round of playoffs.

I enjoy watching a lot of the teams that are still in it, only a few teams left in it I do not like, and I hope the Bills can finally win a SB, and Jim Kelly be able to enjoy also.

I always enjoyed watching Jim Kelly play back in the day.

And later on I became best friends with Larry up in Buffalo, he has had season tickets forever, and he is pretty old now, so I hope the Bills can win it all, and my best friend to be able to have a awesome moment as he is getting very old now.

And Larry was never much into alcohol, I can just see him every week at the tailgate parties messing with people and talking them into doing stupid stuff after they had a few too many.

I wish I could talk Larry into joining us here, he is very entertaining.

And as far as wings, if there is not any bones, I have no clue what it may actually be, and I stay away from it myself.

Lol , I hate the NBA so much.

Handful of allstar teams and literally no one else has a chance.

Is that a thing that happened? I barely pay attention to the NBA for pretty much the reason you've noted.

#28634 13 days ago

Please no NBA shit in here...dreadful sport

#28635 13 days ago

I've not been keeping up with the thread, so I'm sure this has been addressed. I watched all 6 playoff games last week, and the one thing that drove me crazy was the fake crowd noise in the games w/o live crowds. I find it to be incredibly annoying due to its generic "white noise" sound, the lack of proper timely response to play on the field, and just overall lack of variable volume and intensity. Personally, I'd rather watch the games without it. Baseball was the worst with this, almost unwatchable, and I can't speak to the NBA as I've pretty much been turned off by all of in-your-face activism. I've not tuned into hockey yet, so interested to see what they are doing in empty arenas.

As far as the games go, some of my teams won and some lost. The CLE-PIT game was pretty epic and fun to watch. I'm far from a Pittsburgh fan, so their implosion from the first snap was pretty funny to me. I do root for Cleveland (primarily because of Baker - I'm a huge OU fan), but I'm also happy for one of the storied franchises to have relevancy again.

Looks like it's going to be another good weekend. Some teams will get to see how they actually measure against the best, and the Brady-Breeze matchup intrigues me.

I'll take the following:

Green Bay -6.5
Buffalo -2.5
Chiefs -10
Saints -3

Maybe it's my inebriated state, but I think the crowd noise is really well timed in most cases. I thought it would feel weird, but it really hasn't for me.

GB will have 6k fans in attendance this weekend. Hopefully that and the chilly weather is enough to make Goff do Goff things.

And Donald's rib muscles. Sucking wind at those temps certainly wont feel good.

I think Goff is freaked out about the cold. He was seen at practice today wearing gloves.

It is obviously canned and fake sound (like audio "CGI"). I'm sure it the sounds were originally recorded crowd sounds then heavily digitally modified, but it's just not organic sounding to me. There's also the discontinuity when the camera shows a partial/full shot of the completely empty stands as part of the coverage, yet you still hear crowd sounds like the stadium is packed.

I get it that complete silence probably sucks for both players and television, but I would prefer additional/enhanced sounds from the actual event on the field. One idea would be to bring in more directional mics and/or player mics to bring the viewer more into the action.

Also, I don't mind at all being downvoted, but it would be interesting to know what the objections were to the original post and/or the dissenting views of those that did so.

#28645 12 days ago
Quoted from Daditude:

That, and pretty much the one team I did follow from our area (Mavericks, of course) I've abandoned mostly because of how turned off I am by their increasingly self-absorbed bloviating know-it-all owner.

Meh as I've been bitching Noot this for years, rhey have totally changed and fake the game audio for years. I always said go in the kitchen and grab a beer and listen to a play. Without announcing you cant even tell if rhe home team or visiting just made a great play.
So a fake of a fake is one part. The biggest part is it just doesn't bother me the way I thought it would.

Did you just grab a beer from the kitchen before you typed that last post (can't blame auto-correct for all those typos)?
