    Tony La Russa named Manager

    Us fans put up with all of the garbage of rebuilding, only to get this far and then have this be the hire? I feel like this team was building strong momentum and then they kick us in the nuts with this.

    Where to watch live?

    115 Bourbon Street and Turtles were both on the news yesterday. It looked like they were open and not very crowded, and bourbon street had outside seating, but you may want to call and verify before going that way.

    I took the conversations with Littlefinger and with Brienne in a completely different way. Littlefinger said something along the lines that Brienne would protect either sister in a fight no matter who started it. So if Sansa wanted to kill off or get rid of Arya, Brienne could not be there. Sansa's whole story about sending Brienne as her proxy to this meeting is just an excuse to get Brienne out of the castle. Sansa started to get angry with Brienne in their meeting because Sansa just wants her gone. She doesn't care what Brienne has to say. I expect Sansa to try to kill Arya in the finale. Either that, or this is a huge mind game with Littlefinger.

    2017 NFL Draft Thread

    QUOTE (Soxbadger @ Apr 28, 2017 -> 03:54 PM) But as a Bears fan, Id rather have had them go a different direction, pick Peterman from Pitt and then maybe get a shot at a QB in next years class. This is my major complaint with what the Bears did. They picked a project who shouldn't see the field this year. That means at best the guy will start in 2018. They should have taken BPA, which I think was Adams at the time. They have not done anything to improve themselves this year, so they will most likely be picking at the top of next year's draft, where there are legit QB prospects. So now, when the Bears are picking at the top of the 2018 draft, and Rosen or Darnold are staring them in the face, they're going to pass because they have a project QB who will hopefully not have taken the field yet. It makes no sense to me, and I'll be just as disappointed next year when they pass on true prospects.

    2017 NFL Draft Thread

    QUOTE (Soxfest @ Apr 27, 2017 -> 07:52 PM) Bears traded up with the 49ers to select North Carolina QB Mitchell Trubisky with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft. Stunning. Owners of the No. 3 pick, Chicago surrendered this year's Nos. 3, 67 and 111 selections and a 2018 third-rounder to move up one spot. It means they faced intense competition. Trubisky (6’2/222) sat behind 2016 Packers camp arm Marquise Williams his first two seasons at UNC before taking the starting reigns as a redshirt junior last season and leading the Tar Heels to an 8-5 mark with school records in passing yards (3,748) and touchdowns (30). A plus athlete with 4.67 speed, Trubisky added five rushing TDs and is a legitimate scrambling threat. On tape, Trubisky impresses as a tough competitor with a quick release, but he showed a tendency to get squeamish when pressured and made only 13 college starts. The small sample makes him a frightening prospect. Nevertheless, Trubisky looks the part of a potential mid-range NFL starter with Ryan Tannehill-level tools. He'll compete with Mike Glennon for the Bears' starting job. Per Rotoworld Glennon lame duck already mid-range NFL starter with Ryan Tannehill-level tools. That is awful.

    POSTPONED: Opening Day Game Thread 2017

    QUOTE (Dick Allen @ Apr 3, 2017 -> 04:56 PM) They have been making this move for years. But only when it is going to be a big crowd. If they were expecting 11k, this game would have been called by noon. So the biggest fans who took a day off work are who they're gonna piss off? Good luck getting fans in.

    2017 NFL off season thread

    QUOTE (southsider2k5 @ Mar 9, 2017 -> 01:23 PM) With this kind of open to free agency, hopefully the Bears just say F it, and play for the 2018 first pick. I sure hope that's their plan. Rosen is a much better prospect than any of the QBs in this draft. Pick him and hope you just got your QB solution for years to come.

    Vacation/Travel Thread

    QUOTE (SoxFan2003 @ Mar 2, 2017 -> 03:28 PM) Congrats! Ran the marathon in 2015. Didn't get in this year. My recommendation would be to get a place as close to Central Park as possible allowing you to walk back after the race. The subway after the race is free, but it is extremely crowded. When I ran it, I used hotwire to get a place in Midtown near Times Square. Think I paid like $200/night. I liked it because the buses to the start line were located a block away from my hotel, and it was about a 2 mile walk back to the hotel from the finish line. It's an awesome race. Unfortunately nothing is going to be really cheap. Have fun. Thanks! And thanks a lot for the reply. I wasn't aware there were buses that took you to the starting line, that helps a ton.

    Can anyone recommend a decent area to stay in NYC that isn't extremely expensive? I just got into the NYC marathon, but I don't know a damn thing about NYC.

    2016-2017 NFL Thread

    QUOTE (Chisoxfn @ Dec 13, 2016 -> 04:11 PM) He failed as a 33 year old head coach and even then he did have a .500 season followed by a bad year with Tebow/Orton at QB (and the .500 year was with Orton IIRC). I think he was one of those people who if he looks back, probably learned a lot from that experience and should be in a great position to be a really good head coach. And while he handled the Cutler thing wrong...was he really wrong on Cutler? Yes, I think he was wrong with Cutler. The man decided Tebow/Orton were better than Cutler, which I'd say is pretty obviously wrong. If I'm not mistaken, I also think he pushed to draft Tebow. NE is good because of their head coach, I would be careful giving this guy another try. I sure hope the Bears don't go after him.

    2016-2017 NFL Thread

    QUOTE (Chisoxfn @ Dec 13, 2016 -> 03:41 PM) I was referring to the guy up in Michigan. Agree with you on Harbaugh leaving Ravens. I can't be hiring a head coach and not put Harbaugh at the top of my list. Rams are going to throw everything his way. It will be interesting to see if he takes them up on there offer. If he believes in Goff, it is a pretty attractive job (it also is for a McDaniels or Shanny as well) as they will have lots of resources, need help at oline/wideout, but have a quality defense (despite just getting whipped) and will have fantastic resources heading into a new stadium, etc. Key of course is developing Goff. Why would anyone be interested in hiring McDaniels? With the way he failed in Denver, I wouldn't think anyone would touch him again.

    2016-2017 NCAA football thread

    QUOTE (zenryan @ Jul 21, 2016 -> 06:27 AM) Expanding has nothing to do with athletics. It's all about tv revenue. BYU, Cincy, USF or UCF would make the most sense out of the rumored schools. I don't know the point in bringing in Houston since the Big 12 already has that market covered. I would think athletics is strongly tied to tv revenue. I don't imagine a school like Memphis would have a strong football following, so you are not picking up that many new tv households (relative to a bigger school). Is that gain in households worth the loss to the conference image? I'd assume there are very few, if any, schools in the smaller conferences left that would be a net gain. They need to find a way to poach a school from another big conference to actually improve.
