  1. Hockey's future message board. https://hfboards.mandatory.com/forums/buffalo-sabres.18/ If you can believe it, it's full of even bigger, more obnoxious asshats than TSW...
  2. Excellent article. Kyle will excel at whatever he decides to do...
  3. It's not artificially elevating Eichel to say he was drafted to be "the face of the franchise' and should be wearing the "C" any more than it was when McDavid was made the youngest captain in NHL history in 2016. ROR was the biggest star on the team when Jack was drafted and the young players looked up to him. If Eichel was going to be the captain, he didn't need a rival in terms of player respect and deference, especially at 22 years of age... The trade wasn't the problem. The lack of return was...
  4. Agreed. Miles beyond Brinkley at 65... https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1CAKSOU_enUS765US765&q=Raquel+Welch+at+65&tbm=isch&source=univ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwilsvi54LbiAhXkQ98KHSLsDvQQsAR6BAgKEAE&biw=1366&bih=609 Not bad at 77 either...
  5. The Sabres motive for the trade could just as likely (and one to which I subscribe to) be that it was time to make this Eichel's team and not ROR's. I don't doubt that his teammates--including Jack--looked up to O'Reilly as a guy who gave a strong effort, never bitched about the ineptitude of the front office (until cleanout day--when he very clearly was sending a message that the franchise could not go on like it was) and did what he could to lift the team. Given that stature among the players, it would have been very difficult to elevate Eichel to the captaincy, which was the plan from day one. So Ryan had to go. That they got so little for him in return is on Botts and his rookie GM learning curve...
  6. Glad to see those journalism degrees are working out for the folks at WKBW...
  7. Good to see Linda Hamilton kicking ass again, but yawn to the rest of it...
  8. Well, at least he won't be procreating any more, so that's a benefit to society...
  9. He's best look into short-term housing at an local hotel. A cup of Tim Horton's might be the length of time he's here... Yep. He's living the dream.... "Wesley, 26, was on Buffalo’s practice squad in 2017 and re-signed for the 2018 offseason. He was assigned to the Bills practice squad again at the start of the 2018 season, but was released in mid-September. He spent the second half of the 2018 campaign on the practice squad of the Indianapolis Colts and was re-signed for the 2019 offseason. Wesley however, was just released by the club on Tuesday. A former undrafted rookie signing of the Baltimore Ravens in 2015, Wesley appeared in six career games for the Ravens, but has not seen regular season action since."
  10. Yes it was. Joe Tzu. Distant cousin...

  13. https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/2325967117699590 "Using internet-based injury reports, Harris and colleagues identified NFL players who underwent “sports hernia” surgery between January 1996 and August 2015 and compared demographic and performance data from these players to a control group. Of the 56 NFL players identified, 53 of them were able to return to play (95% return to sport rate) with no significant difference in performance score pre and post-surgery.
  14. Farve's a great comparison. He played hero ball his whole career but got more efficient as he gained experience Still, his completion percentage over his first five years was 10 points higher than Allen's rookie average, so there's a lot of room for growth on Josh's part...

  15. C'est la vie. If my aunt had a **** she'd be my uncle....
  16. Agreed. But they're typically comfortable in their own skin and don't have to put up Instagram photos to reaffirm their self image...
  17. He plays well in shorts. Maybe he could get a uniform exemption for during the season... Then again, why even bother with the shorts. He apparently runs real well in the buff...
  18. Still, it seems odd given the history of this staff for erring on the side of caution with off-season injuries. If there was any question that he wasn't yet healed (and there was in April), he should have not been on the field...
  19. Artful lighting. From the looks of other pics on her Instagram page, it's hard to tell how much is natural and how much is nip/tuck/artificial: https://www.instagram.com/christiebrinkley/?utm_source=ig_embed
  20. It looks like a poor decision by the coaching/medical staff for rushing Kroft into OTAs rather than waiting for training camp: From back when he signed in April: [paywall content] https://buffalonews.com/2019/04/03/tyler-kroft-buffalo-bills-nfl-sean-mcdermott-tight-end/ "...Kroft was on his way to doing that in 2017. His big game against the Ravens capped a season in which he started all 16 games and finished with 42 catches for 404 yards and seven touchdowns. Injury robbed him of the chance to build on that in 2018. Kroft appeared in just five games before a broken bone in his foot ended his season. He’s not completely healed from that injury, putting his participation in spring practices in jeopardy, but he should be 100 percent by the time training camp arrives."
  21. Simple. They don't want the players going home at night. It's football 24/7 while at camp, with a sprinkle of marketing 101...
