| Soccer Board|| How does seeding work for the World Cup? - DestrehanTiger on 10/16/13 at 8:46 am|
I know there have been posts here and there about Grant Wahl's tweet about Switzerland locking in a top 8 seed. Maybe the answer to why was in some of those threads, but I didn't see it. How are the top 8 seeds determined? I'm confused how a Swiss team in the easiest group in Europe can have a top 8...
| Soccer Board|| Why Late Transfer Moves? - DestrehanTiger on 8/16/13 at 12:26 pm|
The whole Bale saga with RM and the Arsenal situation with virtually 0 signings got me wondering about the transfer process. Why do teams wait so late in the window, even after the season has started, to get things done? Is it similar to the trade deadline situation in the US where teams hold out as...
| Soccer Board|| Question about NBC Sports Live Extra - DestrehanTiger on 8/15/13 at 1:27 pm|
I'm sure this has been covered before, but will this work like ESPN3 where you can watch games online even when they are on normal TV? I caught a lot of games on ESPN3 on Mondays at work. I was wondering if I would still be able to do that this year....
| Soccer Board|| Houston American Outlaws? - DestrehanTiger on 3/24/13 at 3:04 pm|
Some friends and I wanted to get the full experience of the USA game Tuesday and were talking about watching it at Lucky's where the Outlaws have watch parties. I was wondering if anyone has watched a USA game there and what your experience was. I'm thinking about just joining the group finally if i...
| Food and Drink Board|| Best Crawfish in Houston? - DestrehanTiger on 3/13/13 at 10:41 am|
I've been craving some crawfish out here, but I wanted to avoid making the error of going to a place that doesn't cook them the right way. I know I could look it up, but I figured I'd get the opinion of people with Louisiana ties that know the area. So, if anybody has any suggestion on a place to ge...

| Soccer Board|| ACON Famous Ref Sighting - DestrehanTiger on 1/23/13 at 9:49 am|
It's a slow day at work, so I go to ESPN3 to see what soccer matches I can watch. The only one on is South Africa vs Angola. I'm half paying attention, then a very infamous face flashes on screen blowing his whistle.

| Soccer Board|| Any correlation between the EPL and the English National Team for you? - DestrehanTiger on 10/16/12 at 8:03 am|
I watch a lot of Fox Soccer Channel and listen to the soccer station on SiriusXM. Over the last few weeks, I've noticed that there is discussion about the English National team almost as much as the USMNT. I'm not talking about the England based stations that SiriusXM airs. I'm talking about America...

I know the main soccer bar in Houston is Richmond Arms, but they aren't showing the Arsenal game Saturday. I'm trying to find another bar that shows FSC+ matches. Anybody every go to other bars on Saturday mornings?...

Is it just my television or is the FSC picture quality terrible? It looks so grainy compared to the smooth look of ESPN....

It appears that the USA game is missing from the Richmond Arms website of games that they are showing tonight. Does anyone know of any place showing the game tonight. If there is a thread that I missed with country wide locations to watch, let me know and I will request a delete....

| Soccer Board|| Cup Priority Poll - DestrehanTiger on 3/15/12 at 12:31 pm|
Reading an article on ESPN got me thinking about where the cups rate with each other and I thought of these two options. Which would you prefer for your club?
A. Win Carling Cup (or equivalent) and Champions League
B Win FA Cup (or equivalent) and League Title
I would think A would be the m...

I just finished the Tales of Dunk & Egg, therefore exhausting all the material I could for ASOIAF. So, I need to start a new series. I've seen in a few threads that people have reccomended this series for people that like ASOIAF. So, what can I expect in comparison to ASOIAF? Will I be excited about...
| Tiger Rant|| Who were some of the Russell Shepard recruited players? - DestrehanTiger on 1/12/12 at 4:23 pm|
I was thinking about how little Shepard has done while at LSU when I remembered him being a big force for LSU in recruiting when he was a high school senior. Was that just a lot of smoke, or did he really have some sort of impact on a few of the players we got? Who were the players? I guess it might...

Maybe I didn't do a good job of searching, but I can't find the black sideline shirt with the gold and white chevron on the official Saints shop website. Does the NFL just wait to sell that gear after the season?...
| Soccer Board|| Color vs. Color Soccer Matches - DestrehanTiger on 9/22/11 at 12:54 pm|
They had a thread on the Rant about whether or not LSU would wear white if WVU wore their yelllow uniforms. It got me thinking about soccer with matches mostly being between two colors and very few color vs. white. So, are color blind people pretty much screwed? In the hundreds of thousands of socce...
| Movie/TV Board|| A Feast for Crows (Spoilers up to A Dance with Dragons) - DestrehanTiger on 7/31/11 at 7:04 pm|
I just finished AFFC and thought I'd start a little thread with questions that I think will only lead to opinions and theories.
1. What do you think Brienne said before the possible hanging?
2. Is the takeaway with the reveal of Tom O'sevens supposed to be that he is the informant in the Lanni...

In Sansa's last chapter of the book, Lysa knows exactly who she is while earlier in the book, she questions Littlefinger about why he would bring one of his bastard children with him. Are we to assume she asked him this question earlier in the book to go along with the lie in front of the rest of he...
| Soccer Board|| Gary Neville Testimonial - DestrehanTiger on 5/24/11 at 1:33 pm|
Just flipped to FSC and saw this Gary Neville thing was on. Is this just a tribute to the guy before he retires? Why would they have this 5 days before the CL Final? Being slightly new to soccer, I've never seen a testimonial before.
Also, I've noticed posters making jokes about Neville. While wa...
| Movie/TV Board|| A Clash of Kings Questions (Spoilers) - DestrehanTiger on 5/23/11 at 5:03 pm|
I just finished reading CoK and the end with Theon and Reek confused me a bit. With so many names being thrown around casually the entire story, I sometimes lose track of who is doing what. Also, with the way the chapters are set up, it's difficult to find the part of the story where certain seconda...

| Soccer Board|| Serie A Attendance - DestrehanTiger on 1/23/11 at 9:25 pm|
What is the deal with the fans in Italy? I feel like every highlight I see of Serie A has a mostly empty stadium with the exception of midfield. I guess San Siro always appears full, but the rest of the games seem like they have horrid attendance. Has this always been the case, or is a recent proble...

There was a video on youtube from the 06 game that focused on the LSU defense with "For Those About to Rock" by ACDC as the music in the background. I can't seem to find it now. If anyone has any idea of the video I'm talking about and can give me a link, I'd appreciate it. Thanks...

I've never posted on the FSB before, so forgive me if there is some sort of rule against these probably abundant threads.
