The Sportsball Thread

Post by Furious »

This is the thread for all irrelevant competition that we get emotionally attached to (or talking SFW trash. That's the best part of sportsball!).

You would THINK a good moderator would set this up BEFORE he posts 2 pages of Philadelphia Eagles grumbling. You would think. 😜

Anyhoo, minor league hockey for me tonight and tomorrow night. Omaha Lancers!

if you wanna feel old go to a meet and greet with minor league hockey players some are barely old enough to drive 😳

If you want to know what people in Minnesota are like, they think this helmet design is a good idea:

The Omaha Lancers are a USHL junior hockey team that I follow. These kids (and yes, they are teenagers) have been through some of the crappiest behind-the-scenes shenanigans with coaching and management (like having to buy their own hockey sticks, and if you broke your last stick you can't play until you buy a new one; also being bussed halfway across the country NONSTOP WITHOUT CHANGING BUS DRIVERS 😡😡).

Things have been fixed, due to the team boycotting playing until the stinginess and the coaching/admin was gutted and replaced.

Amazingly, the Lancers are in 4th place in the Western Division (out of 8) and playing better than ever. Last Saturday's game they scored the winning goal in the last 15 seconds of regulation, and in last Sunday's game they rallied and scored 4 unanswered goals in 22 minutes to win 5-4. They make schmaltzy sports movies about this kind of thing!

Not saying that the NFL is fixed, but the fact that my Iggles are still in contention... 🤔🤔

Chargers-Raiders: last 5 minutes of gameplay gets slowed down to 50 realtime minutes + refball penalties/improved ball placement to let the Chargers catch up.

Wow... This is blatant. I guess the NFL is officially 'sports entertainment' like WWE... speaking of which, if I'm feeling better I'll be in the crowd at Friday Night Smackdown in Omaha. I'll be the handsome one. :P

No, still haven't gone to any hockey. The guys are in 2nd place in their division now.

Refball (49ers/Cowboys): Okay it was the Cowboys fault for not lobbing the ball to the ref to start the down, but that stumble-bumble at the end was a lousy way to finish the game. 😑 And don't get me started on Tom Brady's whining today. 😑😑
