| Soccer Board|| Can Someone ITK Rank the Reliability of British Papers Re: Transfer Rumors? - Patrick_Bateman on 7/7/14 at 10:10 am|
Maybe someone who currently or previously lived in the UK? I get so confused trying to determine which ones are reliable and which ones are garbage. Seems like the vast, vast majority are tabloid-equivalents.
Thanks in advance....

Tonight. Middleweight title fight, from Madison Square Garden. HBO PPV
Both guys are true champions. I love both of them. But Martinez is bigger, stronger, faster, and more technically skilled IMO. Unless an injury limits his performance, I'll take Martinez by mid-round KO.
Either way, I can't...
| Soccer Board|| Why Take 3 GKs to World Cup? - Patrick_Bateman on 6/1/14 at 8:02 pm|
Why does FIFA require that 3 of each country's 23-man roster be GKs? That spot could be used much better for an outfield player, it seems to me. Someone like Donovan for the US, or Negredo or Jesus Navas for Spain. Why not leave to the discretion of each manager how many players for each position he...

| Soccer Board|| Is There Any Measure of Soccer Players' Speed? - Patrick_Bateman on 4/17/14 at 3:18 pm|
I know there are a lot of fast soccer players - or, to use the parlance of the sport, players with pace. But is there any way to measure [i]how[/i] fast? Something analogous to the 40-yard-dash? Maybe some of these guys run/ran track? For instance, how would, say, Bale and Ronaldo compare to the NFL...
| Movie/TV Board|| Who's Your Pick to Direct the Movie About Malaysia Airlines Flight 370? - Patrick_Bateman on 3/11/14 at 8:33 pm|
After what he did with the 9/11 and Maersk Alabama highjackings, I may go with Paul Greengrass. If in fact the plane is never found (suggesting some sort of magical/supernatural event), probably Christopher Nolan (although, to my knowledge, he's never delved into based on a true story-telling).

Long story short, I'm home alone (rented duplex) and was just awakened by the smell of electrical burn/burnt rubber/burnt plastic. It took me a few minutes to realize there wasn't a fire. I eventually found the source of the smell - an overheated box fan. The motor seems to have overheated and the f...

Great performance tonight. O-line and RBs worked hard and made the most of every running play. Every yard matters in big games, and they earned the victory tonight! Hat's off to the O-line....

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Someone Dropped Aaron Rodgers. I Picked Him Up. - Patrick_Bateman on 12/1/13 at 3:02 pm|
It's not really clear to me why someone in our league who will not be making the playoffs would drop Aaron Rodgers. He dropped him last week, after Rodgers had been out a few weeks with injury. He was on waivers for a full day (also does not compute) before I picked him up.
Would it be wrong for ...

Tinseltown and Boardwalk theaters in Shreveport and Bossier both say they will not be showing 12 Years a Slave. At all. When asked why (over the phone), both said something to the effect of, "It's an art film. . . It will only be playing in places like Dallas, Baton Rouge, and New Orleans."

His team: AP, David Wilson, Johnathan Franklin, Chris Ivory

Is Reggie + Woodhead too much to give up for AP? Bear in mind it's PPR, so Woodhead is the 11th ranked RB through 5 weeks. And we all know the season Reg...

| Tiger Rant|| Check In If You Think this Game Will NOT Be a Shootout - Patrick_Bateman on 9/24/13 at 8:58 am|
I think our defense will prove all the doubters wrong this weekend. We'll run up the score early, and our D will keep Murray and Gurley in check. A late Georgia TD inflates their score and makes the game appear closer, but we win going away. 38-27.
If you agree that our defense will silence all t...
