re: Election 2020 Q Storm thread - GOP_Tiger
[quote]The connection between Q believers and their devotion to Christ is fascinating. Both offer hope and a vision for a world that they view as just and free from sin, I guess.[/quote] So many Q believers say that their faith is in Jesus Christ, but it's really in Donald Trump -- they don't rea...

re: Karl Malone Calls Out Zion - GOP_Tiger
At age 36, he started all 82 games of the season. How many 36-year-olds do that now? At age 39, he started 81 games. ...

re: Lonzo Ball is likely back tonight - GOP_Tiger
Lonzo is on a minutes restriction. I saw someone remind me on Twitter than Aaron Nelson likes for people in those situations to start, because otherwise, they go into the game cold and have a higher risk of injury....

re: TulaneLSU's Top 50 vacation destinations in the U.S.A. - GOP_Tiger
Hmm. Maybe you should retitle this to "top-50 vacation destinations in the continental US." Because if you otherwise don't have anywhere in Hawaii in the top 50, something is wrong with you. Also, you say that Chicago is boring but tell me to go to New Haven and St. Louis to eat pizza? Chicago...

re: Lonzo Ball is likely back tonight - GOP_Tiger
Hey, I know this is crazy, but maybe his messed-up knee had something to do with his poor play recently? I am definitely no Lonzo stan, but this board has gone overboard on the basis of a few games (as it always does)....

re: The Pelicans are the least valuable franchise in the NBA - GOP_Tiger
That list almost exactly matches market size. Out of 52 media markets for US pro sports teams, New Orleans ranks 50, with only Memphis and Buffalo as smaller markets. Charlotte is number 21, by the way. [link=(https://www.sportsmediawatch.com/nba-market-size-nfl-mlb-nhl-nielsen-ratings/)]...

re: Trade Lonzo now - GOP_Tiger
Officially listed as questionable, so I doubt he plays. But the good news is that the team is likely to bring him off the bench for a few games, giving us more time to see NAW in the starting lineup. Maybe Lonzo's knee was really bothering him and responsible for some of the poor play -- we'll...

re: When does “mask mandate” end on flights? - GOP_Tiger
Yeah, the US right now has about 29% of the population who's been infected, and of course, that's still increasing. We're vaccinating 1 million per day, and that will increase when the Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca vaccines are approved. It's not mathematically possible for infections to sta...

re: Help a fellow TDer make a decision! - GOP_Tiger
Assuming that the budget works out, the trip to Hawaii is a no-brainer. There are so many things to do that you can't do in the Caribbean, and the culture is so different. All of your other choices are current or formerly British territories, and you've already been to one of those in Barbados. ...

[quote]We would likely have to attach some salary to stay under the tax threshold, not sure who that would need to be. [/quote] Melli, obviously. Griff isn't going to do this, but Melli plus a 2nd for Porter would put us in a salary position to make other moves at the deadline. [Edit: wou...

re: Are we feeling like Griffin is a bit more vindicated for the trade of Pick 4 now? - GOP_Tiger
[quote]the issue is that by trading down, we're trying to get a dime and a nickel to equal a quarter (in terms of value/talent)[/quote] In this case, that simply isn't true. After the first 3 picks, there was wide disagreement about the quality of 4-12. Reports immediately after the draft sai...

re: Are we feeling like Griffin is a bit more vindicated for the trade of Pick 4 now? - GOP_Tiger
Now that Jaxson and NAW are playing better, I'm going to say exactly what I said in the similar thread we had when they were playing poorly (or not at all): They were good picks inasmuch as they were logical at the time, but judging a front office by its draft picks is dumb, because the draft is ...
