  1. It's incredible, although I've watched people who dismissed it two days ago start to realize the gravity of this situation in real time and I can't help but feel bad for them. As if any of us live in a community that can support even hundreds needing ventilation at the same time. Intubation? Better cap that at, what, a dozen at any given time in an urban hospital? Keep in mind that "mild" is considered anything below hospitalization. Roughly 15-18% will need hospitalization. Again, do the math. Sadly some of those that are dismissing it are likely those that really need to take this seriously (ie. old, considering I've seen references to grandkids). I sincerely hope some of you wake up and realize that constantly attempting to prove popular opinion wrong is a dumb goal that ultimately makes you look like an insecure moron. You're not being lied to. You need to wash your ***** hands and avoid crowds.
  2. Except that real public health professionals and experts that don't give a ***** about politics are already calling this the worst infectious disease crisis since the Spanish Flu. Look up Dr. Richard Hatchett, or Dr. John Campbell, an old infectious disease expert that provides updates from his bedroom in the UK and has no reason to lie to you. The experts are beyond concerned, and yet somehow some of you would rather get your news from Trump's economic adviser, or assistant to the press secretary, or whoever was tapped to talk to cameras for the day. Speaking of which, did anybody else see Ben Carson legitimately give up the other day when being questioned about this disease? And that was about 5 days ago. Things move quick.
  3. A response team led by a man who saw an HIV infection spread so he could first pray about the idea of safe needle exchange, which has only been proven to work time and time again. You're utterly insane if you don't think Trump was completely blindsided by all of this. He's admitted as much! He said the entire world was blindsided, which is actual horseshit.
  4. 300+ new cases today. Wasn't somebody that we all know crowing about only 15 cases or so just a week ago? Look, you don't need to panic, but you really should start taking this seriously. Do the math, man. A time when a real infectious disease is just starting to run rampant is not really a time to scream about past infectious disease scares. If anything, you'd think we would have learned something with all of that training instead of gutting the CDC...
  5. Low hanging fruit for lazy schlubs that should probably be writing about fantasy football. It's beyond boring at this point. Baker??! Try harder Monson you dork.
  6. I like the idea in general and he looks great, but the video says 250? That almost seems a little too big. Ron Dayne territory, who was really pretty bad despite the "Thunder & Lightning" thing with Tiki Barber. I'd like to see an updated 40 time first if he's really that big.
  7. Well to be fair wouldn't sitting for two years mitigate some of the wear and tear that comes with older receivers? Look I can't stand AB but he's gifted physically and can probably play until he's 38. He could still be one of the best on the field right now. It's a dang shame that he's an insane rapist with a possible drug problem off it, however.
  8. He is such a weird player. 98 yards in the Super Bowl. Do you pay for that and his first round skillset even though he can disappear for weeks and genuinely doesn't seem very intelligent? I don't know. Maybe? He's coming up on his 7th season so he's never really going to be a #1 but he can be an elite option at times. I'll give it to him, Sammy is kind of an enigma at this point. I can't think of many like him - borderline 3 for weeks that can flash like a 1 in the biggest games.
  9. Totally agree with and completely forgot about Fina, but man I loved Schobel. I get it, I think he was bit overrated and put up a lot of garbage time stats but he worked hard for a lot of bad teams. How could you rate him lower than Kelsay, though?
  10. I seriously had Shakira confused with Salma Hayek all week. I'm old.
  11. I don't know her history sorry, just the fact that she's not a very good listen. It's actually even worse then if she had a 4 year stint with Tennessee. It honest to god sounds like she's still figuring it out on air, and people have even said in this thread that folks should lay off because she's still figuring it out. Figuring it out months into a role for a professional sports team? My employer wasn't letting me still figure it out months into my job and 4+ years into my career. Look I don't hate the girl and have only commented on her professional skills thus far, but c'mon, if she's had multiple radio/social media jobs then what you're hearing now is probably about as good as it's going to get. I seriously thought this was her first gig.
  12. McGahee. I remember seeing red when he left and trashed the Bills after really being a disappointment for a good chunk of time that he was here. And then he had that terrible Jim Rome interview and was just kind of an awkward dude in general. People have trashed Lynch in this thread for seemingly not liking Buffalo but McGahee provided the blueprint. And he was less charismatic. And intelligent. And good. Just a total bum.
  13. She's not very good. I'm surprised that somebody with such an obvious lack of experience can jump right to where she is. Isn't she essentially the social media face of the Bills now? I'd think somebody would be gaining experience working for the Jamestown Jammers or something a bit more entry level, not awkwardly finding their way with a professional sports team, but I honestly have no idea how competitive positions like these are. Really hope she gets better but its been months.
  14. Quite the cynical argument you're backpedaling toward. C'mon man. People are affected by this. It's okay to respect that.
  15. Dude I'm on two separate UK forums right now and they are absolutely mourning. Go ahead and move the goal posts if necessary because it's just the UK, but I guarantee this is being discussed everywhere
  16. Yeah, this is a tough one. It's been weighing on me heavily all day. While I've been hanging with my daughter especially, which I'm incredibly thankful for on one hand, but it's really hard not to dwell on the whole scenario. And Kobe was an absolute legend. I'm kind of stunned by some of the responses in this thread, not even considering the weird political ones (the entire 24/7 cable news model has been trash since post 9/11 regardless of your political lean btw). He's a top-5 all time lock. Ball hog and only known in California? The entire world is mourning. Everybody knows who Kobe is.
  17. This is so awful. Really hope the reports about his kids are inaccurate. I can't imagine a newborn being there without the mother. 2020 sucks so far.
  18. Way to contribute. I've said I like Sammy. When all is said and done he should have a lot of money and a decent career to look back on. Why are you so defensive about him being a #1? It has been years since he's shown you that ability, just let it go.
  19. He was a #3 for the Rams and he's clearly not the #2 receiving option in KC, but whatever, call him a #2. Last 3 seasons: Watkins - 1,785 yds / 14 TD Brown - 2,074 yds / 14 TD It ain't that crazy. But much like waiting until week 15 or 16 for Robert Foster to catch a ball, we'll just assume that Sammy really catches fire next year.
