re: Houston sports fans right now - nickg0205
Nah -- it was time. Better to get out of basketball purgatory of being too good to get any decent draft picks but not good enough to actually win anything. Hopefully the tear down is only just beginning and they get rid of Tucker, Gordon, or whomever else they can move....

re: Another playoff and another - nickg0205
The problem is when they don’t settle in to a style of play and end up doing too much. It’s the playoffs... there’s no reason Humphrey should see the field. Kamara shouldn’t be off the field in a 3rd down passing situation. Payton needs to stop outsmarting himself in big games....

re: AOC now telling Google and Apple to finish the job of putting you in your place - nickg0205
So have you just not read any of the details on why it's thought to be Russia? A global effort that seems to effect most countries... but not Russia. Techniques similar to other Russian attacks. Russia isn't just a scapegoat... sometimes they really are the boogeymen. ...

re: Week 10 Fox Coverage Map - nickg0205
The Saints are still the 3rd team in the pecking order here after the Cowboys, but part of it just luck of scheduling (unless the NFL has quietly done it intentionally). They've managed to avoid overlapping time slots with those other 2 teams for the most part this year on Sundays, in addition to...

re: Estimated $5B will be spent on this election - nickg0205
Yep -- and they were lying about it then too. Short of a Constitutional convention, I'm pretty sure we're stuck as we are though. We definitely need Congressional term limits and campaign finance reform....

Lol -- yeah, I skimmed this thread too quickly the first time through and missed that. My sarcasm meter is slightly impaired by Macallan at the moment....

Where has he been that would be considered being a "working man"? Pretty sure he doesn't know what being in lower-to-middle income brackets--working his arse off to get by--looks like....

re: This is what democrats have become, it is beyond sick - nickg0205
Neither political leaning has a monopoly on doing terrible things (both by followers and elected officials), as much as people like to pretend. Extremism (and this race by both to those extremes) is bound to continue to make things worse by giving those on the fringe more and more of a push with ...

re: BHO says deplorables who watch FOX News 'live on a different planet' - nickg0205
Everyone doing political commentary make things fit their narrative -- neither liberals or conservatives have a monopoly on that. Hell, the Fox News link (and OP's commentary) in this post is doing exactly that, since that part of the interview talks about confirmation bias and the impacts of soc...

re: Question on the tax cut - nickg0205
Depends on the income level of the single parent in this scenario, but with the lowered rates they could still have a net reduction in taxes. Would need that last bit of info to determine it though....

re: Paul Pierce believes we are seeing the "new best player in the NBA" - nickg0205
I don't get the "superteam" accusations -- the only difference is that now it's players putting it together through their own decisions and actions instead of management. Any sustained success has relied on having several great players and coaches....

re: Paul Pierce believes we are seeing the "new best player in the NBA" - nickg0205
If Durant consistently provides this level of defense to go with his offense, I'd say he could definitely be the best player in the NBA, but no one's going to appreciate him since he's not carrying his team on his back to championships by himself with no other all stars on his team year after year a...
