| Soccer Board|| New Soccer Fan - HELP! - DByrd2 on 4/13/14 at 9:41 am|
So I was one of those people that called soccer a diva sport. I watched Everton against someone earlier this year, and I now am very excited to watch these matches every weekend.
I have two items I need help with...
1). Where is a good, simple explanation of general penalty rules, as well as ...

Martellus Bennett vs. Dal
Julius Thomas vs. Ten
Who should I roll with. I am leaning towards Bennett, but I feel like neither would be a bad choice....

Got his right leg rolled up when Collins got bull rushed into him by #42. His ankle did not look all that great as it was happening, and couldn't see his knee to be able to tell what kind of flexion was on that joint. Has there been any kind of tidbits about his health?

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Phillip Rivers vs Jay Cutler - DByrd2 on 9/18/13 at 7:56 pm|
Got robbed of QBs in my draft, was holding off for one, and ended up screwed with the last pick in the round my targets went. I have these guys, and Rivers has been tearing it up, but Cutler is my starter because I have Marshall and Forte as well.
Rivers has 15 or so more points this year, 7 tds ...

Not a nega-tiger, just simple observation here.
Special teams has a lot to work on. The kick coverage team has a serious problem with getting out of their lanes and creating coverage integrity downfalls. Especially the right side of the coverage team. TCU had one TD return, and had a couple more ...

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Who should I start? - DByrd2 on 8/19/13 at 7:14 pm|
My RB's are set. I have Ridley and Lynch as my starting two with a backup core of Danny Woodhead, Ahmad Bradshaw, and Andre Brown. Not the best overall, but I have two good starters and a few depth guys that look to get either decent time (Bradshaw) or goal line carries (Brown).
My WR's are what ...

I assume that the most picks in round one will be RBs. I KNOW the first two picks will be Aaron Rodgers and Calvin Johnson, with AP and Foster soon to follow. There are 3-4 players that are very inexperienced with drafts. Should I:
1). Draft normally, get a good RB1 and WR1 with the fifth pick i...

The school was barred from bowls this year, but not individual accolades. He is a huge part of their success, and they went undefeated. Not sure why a linebacker or a freshman QB who went 1-2 in big games should win it over Miller. Just doesn't make sense to me......

It seemed like early in the game, State ran the ball effectively from the gun, with an extra blocker on the line. We have a few players whose strengths are built for that style of play. I th...

The problem is that all of our starters at WR are seemingly built to be slot WRs. I said it on the Score Board last night, but our two best WRs are Boone and Wright, and Boone is easily our best route runner in my opinion. They should be our starting two. We have to find a consistent set of hands be...
