    ES Soccer Thread

    All soccer talk: MLS, EPL, Primiera, Serie A and Bundesliga here. This way we don't keep bumping the 2010 World Cup thread up with non 2010 World Cup talk.

    Ugh, Amazon tools trying to rename Crystal City. Go away.

    Game Day Thread - Redskins at Schiltz Magic

    It's amazing how much more talented Peterson is than the rest of the jags on this roster at pure running. Also the defense, nothing more to say but a man's effort today. Finally proving it can stop a high-powered pass offense (granted FitzPatrick sucks).
  5. The pro-gun people are also generally against funding and expanding mental health treatment programs so their arguments are silly.
  6. To be honest I don't think it's suspension-worthy. Oshie basically skated right into him, though Malkin certainly lifted his arm. If he hadn't been thrown out of the game I'd think differently.

    I agree there's a big gap, I'm just saying the gap isn't where it was even a few years ago and certainly not 15-20 years ago. And it will shrink as today's kids become adults. Not noticeable now, but in the 2020s and 2030s...well anyway that was my only point. Nobody is arguing the Skins aren't firmly No. 1 today. I get my fill anyway - the schedule lines up - football ends as hockey season approaches playoff positioning and as we gear up for Spring Training for baseball. If the Nationals ever learned how to win a series maybe they'd control October but oh well.

    I was more just responding specifically to the "my friends seemed to not care long after the Caps won" by simply saying that may be true for your demographic but the younger demographics in D.C. are skewing away from the Redskins that's all. I think we can all agree there's no need to waste time talking Wizards until Ernie is fired.

    Like I said, the Redskins are firmly No. 1 largely because the NFL is No. 1 in the U.S. But the impact of them being a failure for 27 years will be felt in the next generation. That doesn't mean they won't still be No. 1 but they are not where they were even 10 years ago, that's just a fact.

    The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    The Wall-Beal era is over. It shouldn't be but with cap constraints and being stuck with a mediocre roster that isn't even relevant in a LeBron-less East, it's time to call it what it is. Another failure. Keep losing and blow it up. Start over. Probably won't watch Wizards games this seasons because there's no need to boost their dreadful ratings but I will check scores and keep up in hopes that we hit rock bottom.

    That's your demographic, but today's kids, teens and early 20-somethings are not attached to the Redskins the way people were when they were winning under Gibbs. You're already seeing that play out with TV ratings - out of town games beat Redskins games last season. The 80s are over, the Redskins are still firmly No. 1 but they are not the Red Sox of Washington anymore where their dominance is so paramount that second place isn't even worth discussing. A lot of people can't let go of the 80s though, not that I blame them.

    2018 Season Injury News

    If I have a guy like Sean Lavao as my starter...the point is larger - they rely on guys who are always hurt and then they get hurt again and we're **** out of luck.

    The Capitals discussions from April - June were more fun than anything that's been discussed in this town since January of 1992. And then the coverage of their celebrations and parading the cup around D.C. That first weekend when they got back was legendary. Wizards stuff is the most meaningless, it'a a sinking ship that isn't even interesting. The NBA is a 4 team league that honestly only makes sense for people who don't actually like teams to care about. Even when the Redskins suck it's a spectacular ****show. Wizards is just a record spinning over and over.

    2018 Season Injury News

    When you don't spend usable money for O-Line depth, and you sign injury-plagued guys to big contracts and rely on a guy who has missed 46% of the past several seasons with injuries, this is what you get.

    Post-Curse D.C. Sports Thread

    The Curse is over, it's dead, it's irrelevant. Time to move on and have only good vibes. We have one of the best pitchers ever on his way to a 3rd straight Cy Young, we have a dynamic duo in the back court who are trying their best despite Ernie Grunfeld's incompetence, the Redskins are still a mediocre franchise but we no longer go into seasons praying to get to 6 wins, and the city FINALLY HAS A CHAMPION!

  16. Dude this team has not won a game this year in which it has trailed and Atlanta is not Dallas - they can score a ton. So yeah 14-0 is basically a wrap.
  17. Doctson is a scrub. Cannot wait until he is off this team. Seriously I'd rather have Brian Quick or Floyd in there.

    At this point I hope the losing continues. Bottom out.

    The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    I feel really bad for the Wizards-only fans on ES. Stay tough.
  20. Wilson's defensive ability is sorely missed. In a late game situation like that he is out there blocking lanes and throwing his weight around. Good thing is this offense is so loaded we're never out of a game.
  21. Defense is a complete mess so far. No Orpik tonight but still, no gap control at all this season.
  22. NHL playoff scheduling is the best. Regular season is embarrassing.

    Safety Clinton Dix to the skins

    Anyone not on board with this trade 100% is lost on football. This is a fantastic move that is low-risk, incredibly high reward.

    The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    Not even joking if that day ever comes it is worthy of D.C. sports radio spending all day discussing his ineptitude and the potential for the future.

    The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    Thirded - NBA is a four team league and the Warriors are going to win until they break up. Not a big deal if the Wizards suck and it may finally get Ernie fired.
