re: ESPNs contract with the NBA - arwicklu
[quote]Yea exactly, good luck enforcing some kind of rule with those numbers. [/quote] I don't feel sorry for the guys because they make a fortune. It is still appropriate to make sure the game is safe. Different sport but I think eventually a player injured in a Thursday night NFL game is goi...

re: ESPNs contract with the NBA - arwicklu
[quote]NBA players are 3.5x more likely to be injured on the 2nd night of a back to back. [/quote] I don't know if that's true but assuming that it is... pretty damning from a health and safety perspective. It's very daft to force them to play as well because a season long injury to a star doesn'...

re: ESPNs contract with the NBA - arwicklu
[quote] The point is the season is so long that some games teams can afford to lose some games. Coaches have apparently decided that Limiting player mins to keep them fresh throughout a long stretch of games is not nearly as effective as simply sitting them a game here and there and allowing them...

[quote]Hold on, play clock malfunctioned before I finished reading. We will continue to keep the time manually down on the field. [/quote] Holding could be called on every play... but it's more prudent to call it when it impacts the point spread....

re: ESPNs contract with the NBA - arwicklu
[quote]Obviously the solution if people are really concerned about safety is less games. Basketball and Baseball seasons could stand to be contracted by 10%. The seasons are just to long especially basketball bc so many teams make the playoffs teams can sit players bc they could afford to lose a few...

re: ESPNs contract with the NBA - arwicklu
TV rights don't come before health and safety. If a guy gets injured because he's worn down, then it's no different than a construction worker who gets injured or killed due to too many hours. If revenue becomes more important than health, then you're asking for lawsuits....

re: Your unpopular sports opinions - arwicklu
[quote]Doesn't even have to be more goals. Just make the field smaller. Less players on each side. More flow to game would make it somewhat more watchable. I saw an indoor soccer game on ESPN a long time ago. It was so much better than watching any soccer game today.[/quote] Americans would like ...

re: I've had enough with Lavar Ball - arwicklu
[quote]I've had enough with Lavar Ball[/quote] What do you have going on in life to "have enough" of someone you've never met. He's only famous for having a talented son. Real estate in your head shouldn't be that cheap. Ball is a muppet. You're feeding him like Skip Bayless....

[quote]Lebron's oldest kid is like 12, so if you know that for sure, you're in the wrong profession [/quote] Well I know Lonzo will go in the top 3 in the draft. He's one of the top players in college basketball. So at 12 years old the odds are he'll never be that good. There may not be a singl...

re: Amari Cooper repays mother's sacrifice with house, car - arwicklu
[quote]Maybe if she had better choice in men she slept with she wouldn't have to rely on her 10 year old son to get groceries. [/quote] Agreed. We all know that men never frick over a woman, especially when she could end up being a single mom. Oh wait... you sound dumb....

I know a lot of people that give their parents a lot of their personal money and don't even have to post it on social media. I'm sure he's a good guy but honestly anyone worth a shite takes care of their parents... especially when they're worth millions....

Lebron and Kobe would have just as many championships as Jordan if you traded them out on those teams. Nike has raised Jordan to mythical levels even though his supporting cast won 55 games without him in 93-94....
