  1. An interesting look at the evolution of the passing game in the NFL. My thoughts? Nobody (or nearly nobody), wants to see defense. They want to see offense ... especially touchdown passes. My interpretation? The NFL wants to become the CFL. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/19/sports/nfl-offense-records.html?action=click&module=Editors Picks&pgtype=Homepage
  2. Because we don't care about them once they leave the league. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/17/sports/football/the-nfls-obesity-scourge.html?action=click&module=Top Stories&pgtype=Homepage

    Just got a stadium survey from the Bills

    Nobody needs drunks.

    I filled out the survey. They won't take my response seriously. However. I voted for a downtown stadium every time it came up. I voted for the most expensive options every time. It's time the Bills lose the 20-year-old drunks in the crowd and get respectable customers.

    The Trump Shutdown

    I'm not making a case for either tax regime. I'm just saying you don't know how the tax system works. It works for the rich. The rest of us are hosed.

    The Trump Shutdown

    Income tax and sales tax have nothing to do with each other. If you make $100k a year and I make $50k year and we both buy an iPhone, we pay the same tax. It has nothing to do with income or even net worth. Sales tax is a consumption tax. You buy something, you pay tax. You buy something expensive, you pay more tax. You buy something cheaper, you pay less tax. As for income tax, have you ever heard of the marginal tax rate? Anyone who makes $1 million a year and pays $300k in income tax needs to shoot his or her accountant. https://www.fool.com/taxes/2017/12/13/your-guide-to-tax-brackets-in-2018.aspx

    The Trump Shutdown

    Where did you get this example? Because none of it makes any sense.

  9. I understand the reasoning, but I'm not sold on this concept. I don't believe that quantity of posts has any bearing on quality of posts.
  10. I've been in the Northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, DC, for 35 years. I never cottoned to the 'skins or the Ravens. However, after Joe Gibbs and Bobby Beathard left the 'skins, I had to grudgingly admit that they were a great GM/HC combo. Curiously, the one thing I do miss by not living in WNY is access to CFL games. I've long found the CFL to be a lot of fun to watch.

    Week 16 Bills at Pats Postgame Postmortum

    Who is McDermitt?

    Julio Jones and the 2019 Bills

    Throwing this out for discussion: I wonder if the OBD brain trust shouldn't focus on a top-shelf tight end.
  13. Or the case of Bobby Bonilla, who collects $1.19 million a year from the Mets (every July 1, from 2011 to 2035). It's part of a deal deferring the $5.9 million the Mets owed him from the 2000 season, a year in which he didn't play for the team, because they released him in January. Bonilla's agent worked out a deal that deferred payment (with an 8 percent annual interest rate). Pretty shrewd move. http://www.espn.com/blog/new-york/mets/post/_/id/125162/happy-bobby-bonilla-day-his-annual-1-19-million-payday-is-here
  14. I tune in to WGR's website on occasion to listen to portions of a Bills game or Sabres game. But I stopped listening to Schopp and his knob-polisher Bulldog a year ago or so. They only offer opinions, not insights. Working in Washington DC for the past 35 years, I've had to endure more than my share of "the smartest man in the room." I don't need to listen to another self-important jackass on my time.
