Charles Barkley bringing the heat on LeBetard right now - slackster
He called out ESPN and their race baiting tactics yesterday on the DP show and now he's doing the same on LeBetard. I'm sure the audio will be available soon for those who can't listen now. Basically says there is no reason for this to be a black vs white Super Bowl, but rather two great QBs and...

Worse prediction: Lions to playoffs; go 0-16, Newton is surefire bust - slackster
Listening to the Dan LeBetard Show and they're discussing which is the worse prediction. Apparently Dan predicted the Lions would make the playoffs the season they ultimately went 0-16. Jim Folsom, a senior contributor to Bleacher Report wrote an article in 2011 that began as such: [quote]Cam New...

All major indexes down 3.3% or more today because of rout in oil, slowing demand - slackster
I thought cheap oil/gas was good for the rest of the US/world? Shouldn't everyone be pouring the money they're saving on fuel into other forms of discretionary spending? Nope, retail sales were down in December and flat if you exclude autos/gasoline. Economists expected a .4% increase. Hey, ...

Is anyone confident the NFL will succeed in Los Angeles? - slackster
Lots of talk on the radio today that this may be the last home game for the Rams in St. Louis, but why is it just accepted that it will work this time around? I'm sure there will be an initial excitement, but once the honeymoon phase wears off, what reason is there to believe the locals will embrace...

FBI arrests CEO who increased drug price 5500% - slackster
His arrest doesn't seem to have anything to do with the controversy over the price increase, but that is how Martin Shkreli became infamous on this board and across the nation. [link=(http://www.cnbc.com/2015/12/17/turing-pharmaceuticals-ceo-shkreli-arrested-by-fbi-reuters.html)]LINK[/link] [...

Denard Robinson or Bryce Brown on waivers? - slackster
Standard scoring. Yeldon is yet to be ruled out this week, but if he is, Robinson is the guy. Brown will be the starter it appears, but he'll be sharing carries with Fred Jackson. I'm probably going to start whoever I pick up in the flex. I like the fact that Brown is definitely the guy th...

T or F: We'd be better off with 10 players and no Browner than 11 with him - slackster

WWYD - Bears vs 49ers end of game strategy - slackster
So the Bears had 3rd and 10 from the SF 28 yard line and the game tied at 20 with 1:23 to play. SF had just used their 1st and 2nd timeouts on the previous two plays. The Bears opted to run it again and play for the FG, but Carey broke it off for 11 yards and the first down. The Bears are kicking t...

When it comes to replacing Miles, history is not on our side - slackster
I've come to grips with the idea that it is likely time for a change at LSU. However, finding a coach that can replace the success Miles has had will not be an easy task, and any who thinks otherwise is naïve. Is there a coach out there that can improve upon what Miles has done? Sure, but the pr...

Is anyone going to discuss Ohio State imploding after the game? - slackster
This is a team that can still win the Big Ten and has a huge rival on the docket next week, but they apparently have fallen apart already. Ohio State was a fraud in 2015 and full of frontrunners. Ezekiel Elliot - [quote]"What happened today, it was kind of like a bad, bad dream," Elliott said. "...

Why do teams try to center the ball before a final FG attempt? - slackster
I understand it gives you room for error to both the left and the right, but you would think a kicker would rather it on one hash or the other given a natural draw or fade. I heard an analyst mention this a few weeks ago after the missed XPs in the NFL this year, it may have been Herm Edwards on...

What sends more LSU fans to banland - win or loss? - slackster
Obviously it will be ugly Saturday one way or the other, but I think you can make a case that an LSU win could be even uglier. There are a lot of ranters that have 46 months of pent up frustration and a win Saturday may release the Kraken. ...
