I agree. Brady suspension and million dollars is ok, but that 1st round pick is bullshit.

I think the NFL went way too far (like they did with the Saints) and, if it keeps going up the ladder, which I hope it does, the Wells investigation is so full of holes, bullshit, and agenda driven conclusions that it probably wouldn't hold up in court.

Otherwise I'm LOVING the drama and disruption. Talk is that the Patriots are going to wait until Brady is back for banner raising or any other ceremonies. Would be a nice F.U. to the league after all this.

Enjoying the whole Al Davis/Raiders thing we have going on here. It's fun!!

Patriots: Maybe a deep threat and go back to back

You sad, bro?

I actually like Sherman and his antics. Great player.

He went up to Brady and shook his hand. Good for him.

Keep talking Dicky, it's more fun when you do!

Yes - The key to beating the Pats has always been to kill Brady, but can you do it?

Like gellar said...

The Giants had a poopy secondary but it didn't matter because Brady had zero time.

Baltimore has a better D-Line than Seattle and they couldn't do it.

Seattle has an awesome secondary so that may give their front more time.

I can see this game going either way, easily.

Love to them get their 4th but who knows.

Since that Sharp analysis showing the Patriot's fumble rate to be some crazy anomaly is bound to be posted at some point, just go read this instead
and see why he's wrong (and possibly intentionally fudging the data)

http://drewfustin.com/2015/01/27/patriots-fumble-comments/

Or this one

http://regressing.deadspin.com/why-those-statistics-about-the-patriots-fumbles-are-mos-1681805710/

Is it 187 plays or rushing attempts? They hardly run during the regular season (unless it's the Colts). Also the offense is all quick passes. AND Ridley is hurt and he fumbles a lot.

Also is this just lost fumbles? Does it count fumbles out of bounds?

The team is good and has been for 15 years. People don't like it and want a reason. "How can the Patriots be so good for so long and my team sucks? They must be cheating!!"

Hasn't Peyton Manning's teams been that good for that long? I know he's horrible in the playoffs and he's in a lot of commercials so the hate doesn't build for long. Let's take a look at that...

The Colts made the playoffs 9 out of 10 seasons from 1999-2010. I would like some research done on how many false starts the opposing offenses committed during those 10 years when the Colts were at home. We'll then attribute all those to them pumping in artificial crowd noise and see where it goes.

Someone run the numbers!!  icon_wink

If you say you want the balls between 12.5 and 13.5 do you really mean it?
12.5 psi and -15 degrees in Green Bay, the ball will loose something.
13.5 psi and it's 107 in Miami, the ball will gain something.

You are preemptively fired as my travel agent. 

And it has never hit 107 in Miami. Tongue

Arizona?

 Yep - That's what I was trying to say. If you're at the minimum ANY drop in pressure would make it illegal.

The new Jay Glazer video thing turns out to be a bunch of BS too.

Apparently the guy who had the balls went into the shitter and was in there for 90 seconds with both sets of balls.

Conspiracy theorists are trying to figure out how to deflate balls to Brady's alleged illegal psi and, of course, have figured out that it's plenty of time.

Sane people are saying he took a leak.

This, combined with Kraft last night, makes me think this is a witch hunt.

The combination of Belichick and Kraft making such public denials when they typically say nothing leads me to believe this is all some BS.

Ravens/Colts cried about the balls. Pats fill it to the minimum. League and media pile on. NFL needs to gain some credibility at the expense of a hated franchise so at this point they are in too deep and nobody wants to believe there is nothing to this other than a cold, rainy day and .7 psi.

Leads me to another question - Did the league really care at all?

If you say you want the balls between 12.5 and 13.5 do you really mean it?
12.5 psi and -15 degrees in Green Bay, the ball will loose something.
13.5 psi and it's 107 in Miami, the ball will gain something.

If they really wanted to control this and thought is was important wouldn't you have the refs inflate them all 13 psi and have the refs bring 'em out to the field?

That way there is no question, you take the prefernces and tampering out of the picture.

Have the QBs rough them up all they want but the refs control everything else.

I've seen other scientists say the opposite.

That's assuming Mortenson was correct at the 2 pound difference.

What if it was 1 pound like others were reporting?

I don't know if they did it or not - Their reputation would assume they did - but, not being a scientist, I would assume that if you blow the ball up to the minimum in a 72 degree room and then bring it out in the cold and rain, it would go down. Thus being 'illegal'. If the Colts were at the high end they would also go down, yet still be 'legal'.

That being said - I don't care all that much anymore but it's a fun little story.

Nice work by Belichick today.

Big middle finger to to everyone.

Dismissed this foolishness and spygate in the same press conference.

Needed that.

Now everyone can go back to the hate and saying he's a liar.

LOVE IT!

Exited for the Patriots draft where they will once again trade down and pick up both a TE and a special teams guy from Rutgers to throw in the secondary.

Yuck!

Yeay!

Schneider is doing fine, but in traditional Devils play, they aren't scoring for him at all. After the terrible start they are doing much better and in a crappy division so I still have some hope for the playoff. Need a sniper.

Loving the system so far...  Only command that gives me issues is Xbox On. The rest work flawlessly and I can actually see myself playing more games on my xbox since I can jump right in


Anyway, time will tell

Ha! The Xbox Off is giving me problems. Not the "off" command itself but the "Yes" to confirm. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.

23  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What is the worst game you've ever played? on: November 19, 2013, 02:33:24 AM
Skyward Sword is the most recent I can think of. I'm sure it's not the worst, but it bugged the shit out of me and I finally couldn't take it anymore.

Walk 5 feet and talk to a guy.
"You will go to the forest"
"I will go to the forest"

Someone else enters the room
"You will go to the forest"
"I will go to the forest"

Finally allowed to leave the room, but there's someone in the hall now.
"Are you going to the forest?"
"I am going to the forest"

Then you get outside where you see the guard at the door.
"Are you going to the forest?"
"I am going to the forest."

Over and over and over and over again. 5 feet. Conversation. 5 feet. Conversation. All about the same thing. Pokemon games have more gameplay without stopping.

Hated it and I don't care what you say. It sucked!!  Tongue

Called Sony tonight - They will overnight me a box and once they get my broken down PS4, they will overnight me a new one.

Hopefully this little ordeal will be done by the end of the week and I can set it up next to my Xbox One (that will probably break too).

Stinks, but that's the price you pay sometimes. Would never keep me from not getting a launch console. Waiting isn't worth it either.

Well this fucking blows, my console won't output to video anymore.  Been fine since I got it and I was playing this morning, went to standby, then went to turn it back on and no video.  I've tried multiple cables, I've tried bypassing receiver and going direct to tv and no video.  I can hear audio.  Tried safemode and it didn't do anything.  Really fucking sucks.

EDIT:  Couple of power recycles and now it's back.  Oh man I'm afraid to us it!!!

Mine died tonight while watching a blu-ray. Can't get it back. Pissed.

The team will move on, they always do.

Although it sucks now, if they could have avoided a 5 minute PP in game 6 of The Cup last year and they end up winning, it would have actually been worth it.

It's a Devils issue at this point but I really think it's more of a league problem. Imagine the outrage if this happened to an Original 6 team!

Oh well. Anyone got a 40 goal scorer they want to trade for Volchenkov (why couldn't Kovy take him too!!)?  icon_biggrin

I'm baffled as to why anyone who doesn't like RPGs would buy this game.  It'd be like me buying Gears of War and expecting to like it.  Kudos to you all for giving it a try though.

...

I hear good things, I'll give it a shot. Maybe something will click...and it this time it did!

You can now feel free to put in your pre-order for Gears of War: Judgement
