Re: Explain the reasoning

I must say it's scary to think that a baseball noob like me could make the call better than Williams at times.

You can't. There are dozens of factors involved. I know it is compelling to think that in this post-Madden SABR era that [more]

Re: Detroit

I saw Tom Seaver pitch many times during his career. I saw him interviewed countless times (often on Kiners Korner after a hard fought win) where he would go into great detail about the importance of his conditioning work in between starts as well [more]

Re: 25 years ago

Jackson was probably the best college shooter I ever saw: above Curry [etc]

You talking about Stephen or his Daddy?

I don't think there was anyone better than Dell.

Re: National Signing Day

You also have to consider that every player, no matter how good they are knows that an EXTREMELY small percentage of players actually get to the NFL.

How good they are in high school is a pretty good predictor of whether they [more]

Re: Carrol's play call was OK...

Except that Carroll could have run twice (or passed twice.)

The Seahawks could not have run twice unless they were willing to let the game end after 3rd down. That's sort of my whole point. By not calling times out, Belichick forces [more]

Re: Carrol's play call was OK...

Belichick's failure to call a time out was a huge blunder.

I disagree. Didn't read the entire article so maybe there's something relevant that I overlooked but for me this is pretty simple. Belichick forced Carroll's hand. If he [more]

Re: The Call - Think About It, Though

Unless the ball is cleanly caught it is most likely going to be intercepted.

In the NFL 2014 there were 112 (or so) passes from the opponents' 1 yard line with zero interceptions.

I don't think "most likely" means [more]

Re: Going Nowhere… the Hard Way

You could sell some CELG calls. The Jan '16 130s are going for > $20. That gives you 16% protection to the downside, and a 25% gain if they get called away.

Re: Deflategate question

Second, I think your calculations are incorrect.

I agree, Sonofed's calculations are incorrect. I make it not a 3.9% difference but rather a 4.1%.

Re: Deflategate question

Okay. Snap out of it. Look at the NFL rule regarding footballs and tell me how you think the Patriots violated it.

You are being argumentative. There are lots of ways to cheat without breaking explicit rules, so forget about specific [more]

Re: Belicheat's press conference

2) All 44 footballs used in the game (12 home, 12 visitors, 12 backup, 8 kicking) deflated the same amount when moved from inside, where it was warm, to outside, where it was cold.


No, this assumes that they were all inflated [more]

Re: Adam Schefter Of ESPN Says...

When you look at the entire thing objectively, not through the lens of Brady and Belichick hate, which is wide spread for valid and not so valid reasons, the whole thing is pretty hard to prove. It would basically mean that a ball boy, on the [more]
