re: Saints should've taken Collins with their 7th round pick - Dijkstra
Makes sense on his part to basically shut down being dragted. He gets his second contract a year early (if he stacks up in the NFL), and he gets to choose where he plays. It'll hit him in the pocket on the first contract, but that second one is where the money comes anyway. Sucks that he had to go t...

re: If harden averages 6 FTA vs Clips... - Dijkstra
That doesn't change the fact that the Clippers had a 37 point 3rd and 34 point 4th. They came out hot in the second half, but that's not going to happen the entire series. If they play like that the entire series, they could easily sweep, but they won't. The Rockets shot absolutely terrible from...

re: If harden averages 6 FTA vs Clips... - Dijkstra
I'd be really, really shocked in the Clippers sweep. That second half from them was just insane. I still believe the Rockets are going to take the series. It's going to 7 though....

re: Anyone Watching Floyd's Press Conference? - Dijkstra
I mean Manny's not the angel that people make him out to be, and there's some crazy shite surrounding him. Dude owes tens of millions in taxes, had a baby with the side chick, beat another politician's ass, and all sorts of other stuff. Plus, his mom does scary FIlipino voodoo at matches and shite. ...

re: judges are on Mayweather's payroll - Dijkstra
It's got to be on the trainer. He claims he though he was winning, but that clearly wasn't the case. Not only that, but it's almost like they didn't plan for Mayweather at all. He did exactly what he does every other match, but instead of Pac throwing a million punches like everyone knew he needed t...

re: Casual boxing fan: disappointed & not hooked - Dijkstra
No one's saying boxing is sophisticated. A lot of people are just saying that watching one match that went EXACTLY as everyone expected it to go doesn't qualify someone to label the entire sport and make claims on its current state. On Reddit, people are talking about rule changes and acting like...

re: thread #58082923954 about the fight... the judges are killing boxing - Dijkstra
My point isn't that the fight was necessarily exciting. My point was that people weren't ever going to be satisfied with anything outside of a KO because they don't know better. These aren't two mid-levels swinging for the fences. They're tacticians. For better or worse, this is what you're going to...

[quote]That's why the punch count is so high. they are sitting there, floyd throws a jab, that's a punch[/quote] They also categorize the type of punch, including jabs.

re: thread #58082923954 about the fight... the judges are killing boxing - Dijkstra
I'm not understanding how people can say this. He threw more punches, and he landed a much higher percent of them. Floyd didn't clinch nearly as much as a lot of heavyweight fighters, including Klitschko. Floyd didn't win because he pummeled Pacquiao. He won because he completely controlled the pace...

re: Can You Really Dislike Mayweather For His Boxing Skills? - Dijkstra
[quote]Evander Holifield didn't think so. Neither did anyone else watching.[/quote] It's a fact. CompuBox has already released the numbers. The percentages of punches landed by Mayweather dwarfs the punches landed by Pacquiao. Pacquiao threw a lot of power punches and that's why people seem t...

[quote]I didn't say Manny won. I said I would have scored it 7-5 Floyd or at best for Floyd, 8-4.
