  1. It sound like a situation where the Bills management let this go.....at this point a phone call might/should have been made. If it continues, a nice few minute 'Cole, sit down in my office' conversattion should happen. If THAT still doesn't slow this down, then maybe severe action will be taken. It is hard to be known as a coach/GM/organization that 'stands by its players' and lets them 'be who they are', but then to come down too hard on them for their social media use. The Pats? Yeah, they might have cut him already. But the Bills I think pride themselves on giving the player
  2. Ok, the inflation is as much (or more) a result of supply shortages, labor shortages, transportation issues...a backlog of services...basically things CAUSED by the pandemic....more than the actions of any 1 of the two parties. Go ahead, Libs blame the right and the right can blame the libs....that is just you being a 'blowhard' for your own side. Deficit spending and increased money supply...does that ADD to the issue? It sure does, but that is the fault of BOTH sides. Commodity prices have already come down alot. When the supply chain gets better (it is GETTING better already)
  3. I agree with most of that...it does make preseason more enjoyable.
  4. It would be nice if these threads didn't get locked so we could actually discuss the topic. Too many times I'll start reading a thread and get into it, and want to make a legitimate response and then it gets locked. When politics get involved, how about a mod removing some of the offensive posts AND banning the posters who bring up politics for a good week or two instead of just closing threads we want to talk about? I guess the mods do a pretty good job, I'd just like to see less threads closed and instead just do temp bans on the dumb posters who get the closed.
  5. 0 for 2 with us. Wasn't terrible, but overall experience was average to below-average both times. So much potential, hopefully the new place will be an improvement.
  6. Terrible, decades long missed opportunity to make it a dome and downtown (if that was possible) real mature, lets keep this message board civil by attacking people who don't agree with you.
  7. I agree. I grew up a Bills fan, had season tickets to watch most or all of the Kelly years from the time I was a kid, and I'm glad the Bills usually beat the Dolphins and Marino....but overall I thought Marino was a much better QB. No Super bowls, but I think he was the best of his generation and maybe the best of all time. He was the Peyton Manning of that Generation, but maybe even better based on what the Defenses were allowed to do back then. Elway was brought up in this thread, I never really saw how people think he was one of the greatest ever. As a kid and teenager I
  8. I agree with your premise. There doesn't have to be a direct correlation between the Sabres and the Bills.....the idea is that....things happen. Every single team in any sport can have a season that is below expetcations. The difference is....'below expectations for the Sabres turns out to be historically bad because of where they started from. The Bills are not likely to have that kind of season...but, there is always a chance they are going to be a certain level below expectations. With that team it could be a .500 record and fighting for a wild card spot. I'm not saying that is my predi
  9. Unless Belichick has Brady and/or is cheating, he isn't anything too special. He doesn't have Brady, and hopefully he isn't cheating so I'm not worried. If anything, his 'attitude' seems to be driving players away from the Pats (without brady there, a lot of guys don't want to put up with that staff)
  10. Look at the charts today (Sunday). Yesterdays report numbers were a tad bit better week-over-week, but today now they show a slight uptick week-over-week by the day. So as of this morning, we are at 4 of the last 5 days where the number of cases reported on a given day this week is slightly higher than reported on the same day the previous week. Alarming? Maybe not? A turning point in the trend? hopefully not, hopefully just statistical noise...but certainly something to keep watching if this continues for the next few days. Dig a little deaper into the numbers...
  11. Ok, its only 3 days, but its getting a bit worrisome than cases are starting to trend back up (No news seems to be reporting this yet...maybe its just something they think is too small of a sample?) More cases reported in the USA yesterday (Wed, 24th) than last week (Wed, 17th). More cases reported Tue of this week than Tue of last week. More cases reported Mon of this week than Mon of last week. I'm not taking a shot at your or your comment....as I have a problem with both sides of the poltical debate (truly, I really REALLY think i'm someplace in the middle) but...what I la
  12. The world of Toronto esports is getting a big makeover. A new $500 million entertainment venue, with seating for up to 7,000 fans, is currently being planned for a 2025 opening. OverActive Media says the facility plans to host more than 200 events each year, mostly entertainment and music bookings, while also facilitating conventions, corporate events, awards shows, and esports competitions. full article (with pictures) here: https://www.ign.com/articles/planned-toronto-esports-arena-has-7000-seats-and-looks-wild
  13. I agree with the first part of your reply. Some people seem to 'live' on this forum, checking threads what....a few times per day? Once a topic doesn't have any posts for a few hours to them that thread is dead. I am in your position....I may check the forum a couple times per day, but then if I'm busy I might go a week or more without checking in....so why do people have a problem if we post a little while after-the-fact?
  14. I agree. If this team wasn't against the cap with some tough financial decisions, I think it would be a 'no-brainer' that he would stay. But that isn't the case. When you are tight with money and have to let some players go, the best way to do that is not look at the skill of that player in a vacuum.....but look at how much of a drop-off your replacement will be. Brown may still be good and valuable, but if there isn't that big of a drop off in who will replace him, those are the moves you make.
  15. Simple for me. The OL has to be better. I think this was a below average line the entire year. Allen's mobility saved them a lot of sacks (put most other QBs behind this line and they would be allowing a LOT more sacks) and they didn't open many holes in the running game.
