re: Would Leicester City Winning Be The Biggest Upset In Sports History? - Mephistopheles
[quote] Idk I just thought of something extremely outlandish. I don't think there is anything in American pro sports that even approaches 5000:1 odds so the Browns winning the Super Bowl outright is not close to being comparable[/quote] I can actually imagine the Browns making the playoffs thoug...

re: Would Leicester City Winning Be The Biggest Upset In Sports History? - Mephistopheles
I really don't think fans of the three major sports in the US can appreciate how disparate talent levels are in the Premier League. Imagine if the Pats, Steelers, Seahawks etc got all the top 5 draft picks every year for the next 15 years. And that they traded for most of the best players from t...

[quote] Leicester spent 50m pounds on salaries this season, the top EPL club spent 200m. I don't think practice squad players make a quarter of the NFL average.[/quote] But Man City and Chelsea both invested 500m GBP in transfers and wages to win their first title. Wages have a higher co...

[quote] You think the bottom of the Premiere League is like a Triple A team? [/quote] Leicester were in the third tier of English football (soccer) about 8 years ago. They were two divisions below the Premier League. At that point their entire squad was probably worth about 5% of the 80m GBP tha...

re: London Has Fallen - Mephistopheles
[quote]The Indians especially disliked them. The British blacks have a serious antipathy towards them. The Pakis seem to hang around in perpetual victimhood which of course makes them no different from most of the lower class British whites and Scottish types in England. They are not particularl...

[quote] Never got the Brit infatuation with those.[/quote] They were amazing to begin with, and shite thereafter due to lack of investment. They're a sort of housing version of the NHS. Think of it that way, and you'll understand the controversy about how they are allocated, who can buy them (and...

re: London Has Fallen - Mephistopheles
[quote] Yeah, it's mostly people who come from former British colonies like India and West Africa where the official language is English. Although, last time I was there, I had noticed a lot more people from Yemen and oddly enough, Brazil. The Pakis though are a problem, a big one. No one reall...

[quote] Yeah what's the story here. I don't follow British politics all that closely, but was it a matter of Goldsmith just being an incompetent douche and a shitty candidate? That's all I've been able to glean from the press.[/quote] Goldsmith is who BoJo would be if you removed the aloof, zain...
