    He does. And he will be tough to replace. But you also can't keep paying a 32 year old scrapper and glue guy 30 million a season. There are no good solutions to this conundrum if you look at Boston's cap future of max PG + three max wings, except striking oil with a Clint Capela-type draft pick. That's why I think Robert Williams is going to have to come up big for them.

    The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    Organizational failures by Grunfeld are so much more than surface level misses on free agents. I wanted us to take a look at him in the draft, but I also had no faith in this being the right environment for him to develop as a player on and off the court.

    What is Wrong with Alex Smith?

    Not turning the ball over and scoring more TDs helps your team even more.... lol It is true that if an offense turns the ball over more has less chance of scoring. If your offense is incapable of scoring from the turnovers your D creates for you then basically that is just punting the ball back to other team and the value of that is 0. It is highly important that you score TDs to offset the turnovers. You can't score TDs if your offense is sputtering like a go-cart instead of a decent sports car. I am not even asking for a turbo charged one either... lol

    Damn, this is sad. RIP to a great one.
  7. Fast motion instant replay? To see if there's a first down or touchdown? Is Kellyanne on the meth or the crack? Both? Also who disrespects the office of the President the most? The fake news, American electorate, dems, or Trump himself?
  8. https://www.washingtonpost.com/religion/2018/11/12/vatican-asks-us-bishops-not-vote-sexual-abuse-proposals-they-planned/?utm_term=.e4f4bf460463 the Vatican’s ambassador to the United States suggested that bishops should not be held accountable by lay people in the church, and should not look to law enforcement to confront the church’s sexual abuse crisis. Moments after the the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops learned of the letter instructing them not to act on their own, Archbishop Christopher Pierre, the Vatican’s ambassador to the United States, warned of supporting outside lay investigations into the church. He seemed to refer obliquely to both the bishops' now-tabled proposal to establish a lay commission capable of investigating bishops' misconduct, and also the more than a dozen U.S. states' ongoing criminal and civil investigations into crimes committed by priests. “There may be a temptation on the part of some to relinquish responsibility for reform to others from ourselves, as if we were no longer capable of reforming or trusting ourselves,” Pierre said. “Assistance is both welcome and necessary, and surely collaboration with the laity is essential. However, the responsibility as bishops of this Catholic Church is ours."
  9. The bigger issue is that the price of the cheapest tickets now exceed what the market says what they should be. In the past, the secondary market adjusted because brokers cared more about offloading the tickets than appeasing season ticket holders.

    ***2018-19 NBA Season Thread***

    Agreed that Houston is screwed. Their window closed last year and the Chris Paul contract is about a year away from being one of the worst in the NBA. Harden isn't right either. This team has a terrible hangover from last season. They're stuck and they're not going to be able to get out of this mess gracefully because of the CP3 deal. Minnesota is screwed too, but I don't think it was because they traded away Dunn and Lavine. Lavine is a volume guy for bad teams. I think they're screwed because of the decision to max Wiggins. I think this is the worst contract in the NBA now that Joakim Noah is bought out. He's a sub replacement level player and he's making max money. You can't survive that. Their one saving grace is that KAT is still so young that they're going to get a lot of bites at the apple to try and fix this. But Thibs is going to have to go first. Philly is going to be good this year and challenge everyone in the East, whether or not they beat them. But I agree that they're still a future team. And I think they have a very dangerous decision to make about Jimmy Butler this summer. Even more dangerous than Boston's decision with Kyrie in some ways. I also think that their build is on shakier ground than I originally expected. Simmons and Embiid are transcendent talents. But they're such flawed players it's a little scary to try and project their potential. You have to wish Embiid was a smarter player and that he had better biomechanics. Being a wing who can't shoot is almost unworkable too. I get that Simmons's ability to run point makes him different, but it also means that Philly can't play him with PGs that can't shoot. And there aren't as many shooters/balanced off ball players who can defend their position at the PG position as there are at the SF position. It's a trickier build. And I don't have a ton of faith in Philly's braintrust, nor their coaching. They're definitely not stuck yet, but they could easily end up that way.

    What is Wrong with Alex Smith?

    Dude your the liar. What I said was question when the last time we had a decent punt return. You dodge the question and resort to name calling. Screw this. Your blocked. I waste too much energy on negative people here like you. Not anymore. You know what? Close my account. If your standing by banning me while that piece of trash insults me in every post then **** this place. Bye

    What is Wrong with Alex Smith?

    No he's not, actually, though he and I have often argued frequently over the years as well as agreed. But you, one more time, are another story. You're going to take a rule 5 break based on recent posts. Now there's a few of you who have really become white noise generators on this matter (and really posting stupid football arguments in the process) so figure out who you are and adjust. We'll be doing as we did during rg3/kirk version of this kind of crap.
  13. I don't get mentioning the "dam is cracked, water is gushing out" and "see what happens with our home playoff game" in the same post...?

    Can we stop pretending now?

    I’m behind them. Love this defense and the defensive line. Matt ionionidis is quietly one of the best 3-4 De’s in football with 7.5 sacks. Josh and Dj playing opportunistic football. Plenty of heart and these guys are obsessed with forcing turnovers(sometimes to a fault). Plenty of knee jerk reactions after both the saints and falcons game and our team followed up with solid wins. The Offense is miserable but we dont turn the ball over. This team is UGLY, but we win. Get hot at the right time, and we could surprise. I feel like “the stadium” could lump about a dozen threads together into “ultimate chicken little thread”. Httr
  15. If your saying that an average earner in that area can afford a game I disagree. That's the root of this issue. The price to take a family to a game has grown past your average wage earners affordability. Only the wealthy can afford to go now. Who do you think would be more loud and get behind a team? A 9-5er or someone wealthy? The average Joe was who filled up RFK stadium, I know I was one of them many many times. That was a good experience as a fan. Fed Ex so cost much more to go see a game that the average man can't/won't go. Get the prices down to where an average earner can afford to go and they will. Price it out of there reach and they won't.
  16. Maybe I’m not being clear in what I’m trying to say. Week 3, Vs packers. We won 31-17. You said “the rest of us figured out in weeks 1 to 3 that they were a bad team”. My point is that AT THE TIME, nobody knew for a fact if the team was good or bad. at THIS point, right now? Yes. It is true to say the team is bad. BACK THEN, after having beaten the packers, a team that a lot of people still thought would have a good season? No. THAT was my point. Hope that helped.
  17. These players should stop while they are ahead, I bet Lafemina is pulling his hair out right now. Whether they are right or wrong you don't call out your customers when you're trying to win them back, its bad business.

    What is Wrong with Alex Smith?

    Seriously. At this point your not just disingenuous with your posts, you are just a pure lying troll! Again, I will quote what YOU said. Your words. On this page, nonetheless. You said I was "wrong about good ST play." You then added a part about having a return. Again, I'm sorry if you don't understand the game of football, but the return game is just one portion of the special teams. You specially said I was wrong that our ST had played well. I never mentioned anything about returns, though we haven't been awful there, either, I said ST, period, as a unit, but you still tried to tell me I'm wrong. As usual, I proved I wasn't wrong about the ST unit playing well, and you want to deflect that. I would say nice try, but it really isn't. Just your usual. Again, you also said i was wrong about Alex playing poorly, I was wrong about us picking up better players in the off season than what we had the year before that would lead to better defensive play and running game along with being more healthy, and then said that I was wrong about all of my "nonsense" and told me to stop responding to you. Your words: "Wrong about Alex. Wrong about pickups. Wrong about pretty much all the nonsense you post. Stop responding to me with all of this wrong crap." But, "no where did i say any of that. Those are things you trying to put in my mouth" is what you respond with when I prove your post to be "wrong crap." Your post with you saying all that is on the same page as this BS post, for the love of Pete. Then you try to call me out and call me a mosquito. Well, buddy, if I bug you like a mosquito, get used to it. I'm not the only one on this board that is going to call you out on your "crap", nor am I close to the only one who has, including mods in the past. And, sorry, you don't get to tell any of us who or what we can respond to, just like you don't get to tell us all what we think and not have us respond in kind. THAT is not adding anything to this board because, at its core, it stifles conversation, as you are trying to accuse me of doing. It is a public board. Get used to how it works. If you want to ignore the fact the Kirk Cousins is a better QB in just about every category than Alex Smith other than turn overs, that is your prerogative, just as it is mine and others to point out when you are being disingenuous and misleading in your posts, and not just the ones about Smith and.or Cousins.

    I don't know how easy it is to just replace Horford. He does a lot for someone who doesn't demand much on offense You could make a strong argument that he is their most important player, for this year anyway.
  20. Sorry, I don't see the price being problem for many. Richest people in the country are people in the dmz area.
  21. I get that it has gotten better recently, but it's going to take at least one dominant season (offense, defense, and special teams) to heal the fan base from its football version of PTSD.
