re: Match Day 8/27 - DestrehanTiger
Very surprised that my man Ian Darke disagreed with the penalty call. Alexis got clubbed by an elbow in midair. ...

re: Cast Away movie - DestrehanTiger
I love this movie and will watch it whenever it is on TV. I think Helen Hunt's character gets a lot of unwarranted hate. She had to move on with her life. However, I don't think the script did her character favors with the amount of change they made happen in 4 years. If I remember correctly, she is...

re: Arsenal 2016/2017 Season Long Thread: "Hey! We actually bought some dudes!" - DestrehanTiger
[quote][b]Ozil[/b], Kos and Giroud all back to start and we should rip Watford apart. 3-1 to the Arsenal tomorrow.[/quote] I can't remember where I saw it written, but there are questions about whether Ozil is fully match fit. I wouldn't be surprised if Wenger tries to get the win without needin...

re: Arsenal 2016/2017 Season Long Thread: "Hey! We actually bought some dudes!" - DestrehanTiger
So, let's say this does happen tomorrow. That means Perez will have 2 weeks to get acclimated before he is expected to suit up, right? Also, will Mustafi be called into the German team? It'd be nice if he wasn't. I know most don't know much about Perez, but would he be expected to play before Gi...

re: Ryan Lochte to be summoned to testify in Brazil - DestrehanTiger
[quote]It was an exaggeration by the Brazilian authorities to try to make the swimmers look like the bad guys.[/quote] If Lochte wasn't such a moron, I think public opinion would be more on his side. It's fun to make jokes about him, and the more these jokes happen, the more people ignore the fac...

re: Ryan Lochte to be summoned to testify in Brazil - DestrehanTiger
[quote]Also I'm guessing Lochte makes a "donation" to an "institution" and he doesn't [b]have[/b] to go testify [/quote] I apologize if I'm missing something here, but why would he have to go testify? I doubt he would ever go to Brazil again regardless. So, what reasoning would he even have to ma...

re: Cam Newton on Race in America and Whether He Would Want His Son To Play Football - DestrehanTiger
He essentially asked Cam the same question 3 times on the bill. Then, after Cam explained why concussions wouldn't stop him, he followed it up with a bother personal interjection. ...

re: Cam Newton on Race in America and Whether He Would Want His Son To Play Football - DestrehanTiger
[quote]Why is it trying to bait someone when you ask their opinion on politics & social issues? He doesn't have to answer & he didn't. It doesn't mean that he is weak if he chooses to answer either.[/quote] Because he didn't just ask the question. He gave his own opinion then reasked the question...

re: Cam Newton on Race in America and Whether He Would Want His Son To Play Football - DestrehanTiger
Like others have been saying, I'm not a Cam fan at all, but he did a great job in that interview. He gained a lot of points in my book here. The football question really bothered me. He acts like Cam isn't heavily compensated for the risk he takes. No, we just get to enjoy his brain getting ba...

re: US women's soccer vs US Men's teams... - DestrehanTiger
[quote]Obviously...I don't think anyone is suggesting that improperly trained superior athletes could win the world cup[/quote] That's just what we have. We have a nation of players that aren't trained as well as Europe. All the professional clubs have youth teams at a very young age. They are ra...

[quote]I feel like you give someone like Lebron James 2 years and he'd be damn near impossible to score a goal on as a keeper.

re: Equal pay huh? - DestrehanTiger
[quote]Mens soccer is an U-23 tournament the womens is not. [/quote] I'm with SCH at least in this argument. It's not a very good point to say the women are more successful because they made it and the men didn't. Really, it's the women made it and the boys didn't....

re: US women's soccer vs US Men's teams... - DestrehanTiger
[quote]Because women's sports in the US had about a 10-20 year head start on the rest of the world[/quote] This is the answer. We aren't just better at soccer, our women are better at every sport that is played regularly in the US. Also, women's soccer is different than men's. Good European ...

re: Dalhausser is a beast... just saying - DestrehanTiger
Dalhausser must be exhausted. I felt like he carried them through in that last set. Italy may have been hitting great shots, but I thought Lucena had a rough match on defense. He didn't get to much....

re: So let's talk 4x100 Medley relay (Men and Women) - DestrehanTiger
Instead of starting a thread, I thought I'd just ask this in a relay thread. The men just swam in the 4x200 free. The announcers were saying there may be different swimmers in the final. Would a swimmer that swam in the earlier race but not the final get a medal? ...

[quote]This is definitely true in part. Especially when Pam got pregnant. [/quote] This part is what I actually thought this thread would be about. When Jim and Pam got together, they lost their flaws and became too good for everyone. In the beginning, Pam could get ribbed for being engaged for 4...
