  1. Been a DirecTV subscriber since the Bronze Age. Sunday Ticket (with its access to Bills' games) was the draw. But the past few years, I find that I've been recording the games while getting on with my life on Sunday afternoons. I check the final score. Bills win and I'll watch. Bills lose and I hit delete. I don't have any real issues with customer service, but if the Sunday Ticket package becomes available on another platform, I'm done with DTV. Their pricing is getting ridiculous, but my wife's employer partially subsidizes the cost (as well as the cost of our internet connection, Netflix and other streaming services, and her cell phone), so I can't grouse too much. But like I said, if Sunday Ticket goes, so do I.
  2. I occasionally called the Sabres post-game show on the now-defunct Empire Sports Network. My favorite reaction was when later in the show, they referred to me as "the gentleman from Virginia." It's been years since I called WGR for anything.
  3. It's not that I'm embarrassed to wear any team s**t. I just won't waste my money on that stuff.
  4. The Baltimore Ravens play in M&T Stadium. M&T is headquartered in Buffalo. Taco Bell couldn't afford the naming rights to a AA baseball league ballpark.
  5. Ok. I get it. It's not your "skill." it's the gloves. Thanks for clearing that up.
  6. Well. it's been decades since I played flag football. And even then, we only played it when we played co-ed football. So I guess I'm not as "wonderful" as you.
  7. Here's an interesting article that explains why catches we once thought to be impossible to catch are now possible. I have noticed the increased number of highlight-reel one-handed catches in recent years, but never thought that it was the gloves. Silly me, I thought receivers were just getting better (that's a joke, BTW). Also I never realized that the gloves are made to be a bit "stickier" than bare hands. Makes sense, but I never thought about it. Now if only someone could make those helmets more concussion-proof (that's sarcasm, BTW). https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/20/sports/super-bowl-nfl-gloves.html
  8. 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
  9. 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
