re: Lack of parity in European soccer leagues blows - bdskelton
[quote]Rotating Lebron is going to his 7th straight finals[/quote] Yeah and 4 of those were in Miami and the other three in Cleveland. Which makes the point that the talent rotates around (even an individual player), and so different teams have a chance on any given year. ETA: If the...

re: Lack of parity in European soccer leagues blows - bdskelton
[quote]More than half the league makes the NBA playoffs, and it's currently the most lopsided league in America.[/quote] It is lopsided in the NBA, but at least the top teams rotate around. Yeah you have the Laker and Celtics traditionally. But the NBA finals competitiors three years running ar...

re: Lack of parity in European soccer leagues blows - bdskelton
[quote]Typically, European sports lack parity, not just soccer. If you watch European hockey, basketball, etc. you'd see similar outcomes[/quote] Maybe that's because even though the leagues are country wide, they generally have continent wide competition as well. And so if a couple of teams fro...

Lack of parity in European soccer leagues blows - bdskelton
Catching some of the Bayern match on FOX this morning, and of course they secured the league championship weeks ago (and are currently crushing Freiburg in their season finale). Bayern all the time in the Bundesliga. In La Liga, its Real Madrid and Barcelona at the top. Third place is of course...

re: I'm sure James Comey emailed the memo to the other senior FBI agents - bdskelton
[quote] a memo to file and it's used all the time in criminal investigations (and... like everywhere)[/quote] Yeah. Most businesses have a system of taking memos after a meeting or phone conversation to summarize what was discussed. I would imagine these are not always (or even mostly) emailed ...

re: Better Call Saul Season 3 Episode 6: Off Brand - bdskelton
Yea, so he could be reading a slightly older magazine. Jimmy's case number was "CR-2003113081". I don't know what all of the sequencing numbers for the New Mexico Bar association means, but the first four numbers would seem to indicate the year....

re: Better Call Saul Season 3 Episode 6: Off Brand - bdskelton
[quote]Howard made mention it was 35 yr old scotch. The label said 1966, meaning it's currently 2001. I'm guessing 7 years pass from this point until BB events. [/quote] During the last episode there was a sign outside the court room for Jimmy's hearing that a sequence of numbers including "-20...

re: Just ignore libs, they'll whine about everything. - bdskelton
[quote]You act like the right is not just as guilty of following like sheep.[/quote] They definitely do. The major difference is this: the majority of media is complicit in pushing the lefts agenda. That alone makes it a much bigger issue on the left than it is on the right. Their views are pus...

re: Just ignore libs, they'll whine about everything. - bdskelton
[quote]I have to ask: At what point will you criticize Trump? Because all you care about is that there's a Republican in office and you want to see liberals melt. I get it. But that's why politics are so messed up, you only care that you beat the other side and ignore what's going on in the ...

Just ignore libs, they'll whine about everything. - bdskelton
They whine about Comey in the first place. Trump fires him yesterday, and they whine about timing and how it should have been done immediately if it were going to be done. Guaranteed, if Trump had fired Comey the Monday after he took office they would have whined that he didn't have a plan in ...

re: MLS noob discussion - bdskelton
Quality isn't as good obviously, but I tend to throw my support towards the MLS and hope others do the same. I really enjoy watching it, and especially now that I have a team to support (ATL United) it's a hell of a lot of fun. I make no delusions that it's on the same level as the European leag...
