  1. Actually, I'm on Edge too. I just learned I didn't have to do what I recommended, lol. Thank you! I tried it on Firefox just now too, and your method works there as well. Probably Chrome too, since it is from the same platform as Edge.
  2. What you have to do is only copy the portion of the tweet url that is before the "?", if on a desktop. So just copy the highlighted portion in the pic below. The stuff after the mouse pointer arrow omit (i.e., omit the stuff from the question mark on). Try it!!
  3. Not sure if already posted, but what the heck is his, lol!
  4. The hat looks so big on him, lol. Here it is in graphic form:
  5. Yep...traitor to Buffalo. I was fuming at 12 years old when he did it and have never forgiven him. A true sandbagger.
  6. British English words and usage are cool and I am always learning. Terms like "brillo", "ladder", "pond", and "f*g" (bad word in American English) I learned in college, but things like the aforementioned "fixture", "TV listings", and "BST" I just learned.
  7. Awesome... makes sense to me! [And if you're in France (? or maybe your user name refers to the Sabres), you would know more than most Americans].
  8. Yep, you noticed it too: old Baltimore vs. new Baltimore! Broadcast assignments are mostly based on distribution. The NYC market is huge, plus New England had a good following.
  9. Awesome! You are correct on Sky Sorts. Either I misread their schedule or they updated it, probably the former, lol). I will update my post.

  11. All good questions. I don't have much time, but I found this: This was Week 17 last season and the Steelers won against the Ravens 16-13 but could have lost due to Land Clark's unnecessary roughness penalty against Cam Heyward. https://fansided.com/2023/01/01/refs-screw-steelers-playoff-race-cam-heyward-penalty/ The refs for the Steelers and Ravens stirred up controversy when they hit Cam Heyward with a costly and questionable unnecessary roughness penalty. [...] With seconds left before halftime, Pittsburgh got a third-down stop that would have forced Baltimore to settle for a field goal. However, there was some pushing and shoving on the post-tackle pile that resulted in an unnecessary roughness penalty against Cam Heyward. Immediately, fans questioned the call. It looked relatively harmless. At most, there could have been offsetting penalties since Heyward had been grabbed by Baltimore players in the pile in the first place. Instead, only one side got a major punishment for something minor. The Ravens got a first down as a result and promptly scored a touchdown on a pass from Tyler Huntley to Isaiah Likely. In essence, Baltimore got four extra points because of the penalty. By the fourth quarter, the four-point margin between the teams was notable. The Steelers have been clinging to hopes of making the playoffs, winning five of their last seven since starting the season 2-6. The game against the Ravens was a must-win. A loss would eliminate Pittsburgh." https://www.behindthesteelcurtain.com/2023/1/2/23535529/official-from-week-17-tries-to-explain-unnecessary-roughness-penalty-on-cam-heyward-steelers-ravens "It was a 4-point swing, and until Kenny Pickett and the offense’s late-game heroics, it looked as if those points would be the deciding factor in the game. So, what happened which resulted in the flag being thrown? This is what referee Land Clark told a pool reporter after the game. “Well, there was some pushing and shoving after the play,” referee Land Clark told a pool reporter after the game via Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “No. 97 continued to push after the play, and that’s why it was called.” In the locker room after the game, Heyward sang a different tune. Nonetheless, he didn’t run and hide from the play, instead focusing on getting his defense ready for the second half. “I got pulled back down, and it looks like hit the ref,” Heyward said. “We were able to regroup at halftime. Swallowed my pride and just kept going.”
  12. And of course, half the board here wanted him. But Buffalo drafted Donte Whitner (and John McCargo) to star in Dick Jauron's new Tampa 2 system...sigh.
  13. Yep, thanks for stating that. And he won't make it for the Class of 2024 either, since the three Senior Finalists were already named: "recently named Seniors Finalists Randy Gradishar, Steve McMichael and Art Powell"

  16. Damn, I was very young when this came out. Never knew about it. It was funny as hell though. Good 70's humor.
  17. LOL...this is so true. Also, a first name than is a last name and vice-versa, liked "Mason Rudolph".
