    Enough. This is why we closed the forum. Conversation ends here.

    We’re not debating in this thread. This is exactly the point. It’s impossible to talk politics without getting into a nasty back and forth where no one changes their opinion.

    2018-2019 Official NBA thread

    I don't disagree, but just to be clear, my response had nothing to do with the NBA, as I agree it's a far less competitive league than MLB. I was just making the point that currently, every team in MLB doesn't have a legit shot like the previous poster said.

    You have every right to feel that way, but it really isn't true at all, and hasn't been for a while now. You can choose to acknowledge it or not, but there are slightly more than a handful of teams that are actively "rebuilding" in MLB and have ZERO intention of being competitive for multiple seasons at a time. This has been going on for a while now. Is that bad for baseball? You can certainly argue it is. But the fact remains it is very much happening in baseball right now.

    Market/Financial Thread

    I’ve done a decent amount of reading on it, but for a buy and hold type investor like myself, how much of a difference am I going to see with a Vangars Index Fund compared to the Vangard S&P 500 ETF?
  6. Do people really say Cano has one of the worst contracts in baseball? The Mariners have sucked but not because of Cano. Also, the answer is Davis and it isn’t that close. He was had by historical levels it he paid a pre arb salary. With that contract? SHEEESH.

    And Smoltz and Buck are playing the “old man yells at cloud” but perfectly.

    The throw Rodgers just made to tie the game couldn’t have been thrown better, at all. It legit was the perfect TD pass.

    To say the NFL is a week to week league is a drastic understatement....

    That's sports and just life in general. Everyone is so dug into their positions, once a proclamation is made, everyone just wants to be right. There is a "Trubisky Sucks" group that would watch Mitch win the Bears the Super Bowl and still find faults.

    It's also been shown over the last few seasons that there are VERY few consistent, count on you every week, type QB's. Rodgers-Brady-Brees. After that? You have your 2nd tier of Rivers, Big Ben, Russell Wilson. Then it's everyone else.

    We cut it. For like two seasons we got rid of K and DEF and replaced them with 3 defensive players, but that kind of sucked too. We went back to just starting a team D and that's it. Who the hell wants to worry about kickers?!

    I haven't been in a league with a kicker in years. They are the worst.

    Here’s a question for next week... Brees on the road in Baltimore or Baker in Tampa...

    If you can dish it, but can’t take it...stop posing here. It’s simple.

    This is where it becomes way too easy to blame the coach, and not the players. You’ve got a veteran defense on the field, and on top of it Nagy doesn’t even coach the defense. He’s the head coach of the offense. At some point, someone needs to make a tackle. Nagy made some mistakes today, some of which I posted about. But this loss wasn’t on the coaches.

    Most of us agreeed. Honestly, what would have been the odds going into the game that the Bears wouldn’t have recorded a sack today?

    Or create a whole new one, in a different forum, to “apologize” for having awful takes, then make empty promises like “I won’t post in the NFL thread until after the New England game”
