|Sep-24-17|| ||saffuna: We'll see. My guess is that when Kanter stop anybody inside and provides no rim protection, he's gonna get hammered. People will forget they got him for Carmelo.|
|Sep-24-17|| ||Bobsterman3000: Kanter will get roasted. He was in Billy Donovan's doghouse a lot.|
|Sep-24-17|| ||HeMateMe: I think we made the playoffs once with melo. It was a huge failure, his being here. Porzingis becomes the first option, the knicks will work to keep him happy. |
next would be to get Jo Noah to accept the fact that his NBA career is over and accept a buy out.
|Sep-24-17|| ||saffuna: I have always heard that MSG fans are the most knowledgeable in the league. Don't know whether that's true. But I think they will recognize a defensive liability.|
|Sep-24-17|| ||HeMateMe: I would think an arena that charges less for tickets would have the smartest fans. NY has many blocks of seats held by corporations, celebrities, casual fans who have the money to get ahold of the seats there. I don't think those are the most basketball savvy people. Maybe 30 years ago that was true.|
|Sep-24-17|| ||saffuna: Yeah, maybe so.
I remember a great story in SI years ago, by George Plimpton in fact, about the Rangers "blue seats" fans, regular folks and absolute fanatics who would not tolerate poor play by the Rangers. (place comments here.)
They used to serenade model Carol Alt (married to one of the players) far below in the front row, and not politely, so Plimpton got her to go up and visit the blue seats, where she softened the fans a little.
|Sep-24-17|| ||WannaBe: Just like Ah said, BUF should be -9.0 home fav. =))|
Sure do know how to pick them. See if KC can do better or worse.
|Sep-24-17|| ||keypusher: Well, today the Dolphins did all they could to speed my transition away from football.|
|Sep-24-17|| ||plang: The Giants had played 8 games in a row without scoring more than 20 points, had scored 13 points total in the first 11 quarters of this season - they score 24 points in the 4th quarter but lose on a 61 yard walk off FG|
|Sep-24-17|| ||saffuna: "Where have you gone, Dan Marino?"|
|Sep-24-17|| ||Bobsterman3000: We can all finally forget Leon Lett's boneheaded plays now thanks to Marcus Cooper.|
|Sep-24-17|| ||WannaBe: Well, KC won and covered the spread, would have lost the 10% vig if I was in Reno.|
|Sep-24-17|| ||plang: ...and Kareem Hunt continues his amazing start for the Chiefs|
|Sep-24-17|| ||perfidious: <HMM: dammit, those Rams lemon sherbet unis are butt-ugly....>|
Watching part of the Thursday night game was not the most fun I have ever had, and those uniforms--on both sides--were dreadful.
|Sep-24-17|| ||WannaBe: Oakland Traiders are playing like it is 2014/2015 all over again...|
|Sep-24-17|| ||HeMateMe: Trump today said "NFL ratings wwaay DOWN!" are they down a little bit, a cyclical sort of thing, normal pattern, or did Trump actually (*gasp*) tell the truth? I'm sure it's happened, you just have to look really hard. It's sort of a scavenger hunt, or maybe finding an albino gorilla, something like that.|
|Sep-24-17|| ||tpstar: Well what do you know: a lone dissenter.
My faith in humanity is somewhat restored.
|Sep-24-17|| ||HeMateMe: we had no idea you were so patriotic, TP. Or, are you just against black males expressing themselves in a safe, professional manner, so the 'thug' tag can't be dropped on them?|
Single Payer health insurance is coming TP. you better get yer Bernie On!
|Sep-25-17|| ||WannaBe: Bunch of 'Dogs covered the spread, so that means bookies made out like (one armed) bandits!|
Apparently a lot of people read my prediction here and went with Denver to cover 3-points at Buffalo.
|Sep-25-17|| ||keypusher: <wannabe>
Interesting collection of sportsbook gloats from that article:
<"It was certainly one of the best days we've had," Simbal told ESPN on Sunday night.>
<"We had a ton of money-line parlays on the Steelers, ton of teasers," Jay Rood, vice president of MGM race and sports, said. "That was a complete blow to the public.">
<"It was as good as one Mayweather-McGregor fight," Frank Kunovic, director of specialty games for Caesars Entertainment, added.>
Casinos to bettors: "Suckers! We raped you! See you next week!" I dunno, seems like bad business strategy.
|Sep-25-17|| ||saffuna: You're completely wrong, <keypusher>.|
Maybe bettors overall are suckers, but not me. I'm really smart and knowledgeable and will bet and win this coming Sunday and every Sunday till the end of the season. Just because an amazingly unlikely set of circumstances caused me to lose the first three weeks means nothing.
|Sep-25-17|| ||WannaBe: <keypusher> No one forced them bettors to take DEN or NE or any of the big favourites.|
Week 2, bettors came out ahead when favourites covered. See-saw battle between the books & customers. As long as books keep collecting those usual 4-6%, the lights will be on and windows will be open. =)
|Sep-25-17|| ||HeMateMe: "...win this coming Sunday and every Sunday till the end of the season. Just because an amazingly unlikely set of circumstances caused me to lose the first three weeks means nothing."|
Is this from Eli Manning's twitter account?
|Sep-26-17|| ||saffuna: I need some legal advice:
If I were to kill the Yankee announcer who sings out "All rise. Here comes the Judge" after every Judge (Judicial) home run, would I have a case for justifiable homicide?
Also, I noticed one of the "judges" in the rightfield box one night was Sonia Sotomayor.
|Sep-26-17|| ||perfidious: <saffuna....If I were to kill the Yankee announcer who sings out "All rise. Here comes the Judge" after every Judge (Judicial) home run, would I have a case for justifiable homicide?>|
Seems to me you would have a prima facie case: hell, even if <big canard> did the deed, he should be let off.
