    RIP Red Cashion

    Then I sit corrected, I will take your word for it. Then again, I took Youtube's word for it that is was Cashion. It's almost like you can't trust the internet for 100% accurate information any more.

    Gentlemen, I give you the finest call ever made by a referee:

    The AAF Thread

    I think the best thing that could come out of it is for this league to last several years and help develop a much wider pool of officials from which the NFL can hire.

    WAY too much Patriot* love around here (my analogy)

    As a Buffalo sports and Bills fan specifically, I'm 98% scar tissue at this point. I just don't feel the outrage burn quite as hot as I used to. And while that's true, The cheating cheaters cheated and cheated us and everyone else. They've had multiple first round picks taken away and been fined (I'm too lazy to look it up, so I might be off a bit) millions of dollars by the League FOR CHEATING. Now, I'm much less angry than I used to be. I've gotten older, I care about the NFL less and the scar tissue helps. So, now I only want to see Brady, Belichik and Kraft convicted of Fraud and sentenced to 20 years in Federal Prison, The Patriots Franchise revoked and all wins since 2000 vacated and the State of Massachusetts returned to Wampanoag tribe. I used to be really angry and wanted them punished much more severely.

    Dolphins expected to cut Tannehill

    Yep. Rex had a very demanding, highly specific scheme. If the DE was supposed to take the outside shoulder of the OT, he might as well forget about any counter moves he has in his repertoire. Often he used the outside rushers to try and open lanes for blitzers, not unlike using a massive DT to absorb double teams and keep the LBs clean. The pressure was supposed to come from the scheme, not a talented player winning match ups.

    I'll miss Tannehill. Who will now step forward to carry the mantle of Chad Pennington in the AFCE?
  8. The only pick/prospect in the last few years I was dead set against was DeShone Kizer, the QB from Notre Dame that Cleveland took in 2017. The thing that sealed it for me was a conversation I saw between him and Jon Gruden. Gruden asked him if he liked winning or if he hated losing. He replied something like, I like to win, winning is fun. That's the wrong answer. I want guys who lose sleep over one play that they messed up years ago. I want the guys who despise losing. I want guys who are miserable when they get beat and work their tails off to make sure it doesn't happen.
  9. I wonder if the Network Nightly News shows are on the way out. The audiences skew 50+ in age and people are getting their news elsewhere. The shows used to be like a public service and I think written into the licensing agreements with the FCC. They cost a ton and as they lose viewers, they are likely going away.

    Oregon to vote on legal shrooms

    I wonder what the legalese disclaimers would be for retail mushrooms. "Caution: Objects may not be there at all" or "Warning: Playing the game 'Operation' while using this product may result in hours of laughter and no winner".

    Ultima Thule

    Consider a different version of the problem. Say you wanted to go somewhere directly across the galaxy. You would likely want to avoid the super massive black hole at the center of the galaxy. So you go around it, but should you stay in the plane of the galaxy or go "above" the plane, sort of like an airplane going over the pole?
  12. Road House is a classic. It is quintessential '80s, with it's acid washed wisdom, feathered hair glory, memorable performances, boobies, bar fights and it's very quotable. I have to send some respect to Terry Funk and Jeff Healey. There's so many throw away lines in that movie that still come out of my mouth like, "Well, if it keeps you in the good graces of the church-" and the reply, "Ain't it peculiar how money seems to do that very thing."

    I'm going to need to hear the Murph/Kelso reaction to Kiko. If anybody has a link, it would be appreciated.
