re: NFL to make changes to improve game pace...allegedly - DestrehanTiger
A couple of these confuse me. First, what do they mean by a playclock after a touchdown? Doesn't that happen already? What would be the change here? Second, I thought half time was already standardized to be 12 minutes long. I set an alarm on my phone so I can remember to turn Saints games back o...

re: History Podcasts - DestrehanTiger
[quote]It's archived. You have to buy it but it's cheap. Same with the Punic Wars.[/quote] That was the best $50 or so bucks I've spent on entertainment. I was a bit disappointed in the early stand alone episodes, though. The series are all great, but the 1 part episodes just leave too much on th...

re: Where does Doug Judy rank among recurring TV characters? - DestrehanTiger
I find it hard to believe that someone can know the name of an obscure, side character on a show they dislike. I love the show and it took him being on a third time for his character name to lodge in my head. ...

re: Does it annoy anyone that basketball teams wear white at home - DestrehanTiger
I liked the old Cowboys owner's explanation for why they wore white at home. If they wore blue, every game would be white vs blue for the fans. When they wear white, they get to see white vs different colors each week. I don't like much about the Cowboys, but I always liked that reasoning....

[quote] We could probably sell either Gabriel or Chambers to help fund other signings. [/quote] I haven't watched Chambers much this year, but the early reports are good. I think I'd much rather keep him than Gabriel. This has been said a lot on the Arseblog podcast, but Arsenal football deci...

re: Arsenal 2016/2017 Season Long Thread - DestrehanTiger
Sanchez is obviously the best player on the team, but he has acted like a child this season. At least that is how it appears from our perspective. With the effort he puts out on the field, I would expect him to act more like a professional and less like a weenie. ...

re: Sneaky Pete Season 1 Released Today - DestrehanTiger
Just finished the first season. Did I just miss where they explain why the parole officer stops going after Marius? It was an ongoing thing for a few episodes and then they just dropped the storyline. I know the construction guy covered for him, but that felt like a band aid, not a cure. ...

re: How does this board feel about MLS "ultras" - DestrehanTiger
There is really no winning in this situation. At the beginning, the MLS was made fun of because it was too Amercianized. Now, it gets made fun of for trying to be too European. I'm guilty of this as well. I hate how Dynamo fans bring scarves to the games. It's 100 degrees outside. Only girls and hip...

re: Taboo - DestrehanTiger
I was trying to get some explanation for things and went to the sunreddit for the show. Saw an interesting screen shot of what looks like a ghost (of his mother maybe) hanging over James as he is being tortured. I thought it may have been photoshopped. So, I went back to the episode to watch. Sure e...

re: Spinoff "sin" thread... Should you be held accountable for the sins of others? - DestrehanTiger
Yeah, that always bothered me growing up. Now that I have a newborn, it was weird hearing people say I need to get her baptized soon just in case. So, if she dies as a 6 week old before baptism, she deserves an eternity of suffering? It's just such a weird implication when people bring it up. Th...

re: 2017 Kit Thread -New USA Third Unveiled :yuck: - DestrehanTiger
That Arsenal kit isn't bad. I like that there aren't any frills on the torso. The collar is a bit weird. Also, since switching to Puma, they've only had white shoulder yolks as opposed to simply white sleeves. It's a bit strange. And I really hope that blue gradient kit isn't the secondary kit....

re: Taboo - DestrehanTiger
[quote]thought this was covered in the first episode where the doctor did a midnight autopsy on the old man. He did some chemical experiment and told James his dad had been poisoned with small amounts of arsenic over time. Seems that would point to the butler. Unless the actress poisoned him littl...

re: Taboo - DestrehanTiger
I also am confused on a couple of things. 1. I know a large portion of the story revolves around Delaney, the EIC, the Crown, and the Americans all having spies everywhere. Even knowing that, it seems the EIC's plan to get James arrested is a bit convoluted. The basics of it are they made it loo...
