re: NBA is the least interesting sport in its current state - Stagg8
I don’t have an issue with pace-of-play rules. After a year or two, the new rules would be the norm, and fans would forget the glorious monotony of having a guy step out of the box for 60 seconds between pitches. :lol: As for style of play, innovators tend to be rewarded. The whole league will...

re: NBA is the least interesting sport in its current state - Stagg8
[quote]I would say MLB has major issues right now. You have two teams on pace for 115+ losses (Royals and Orioles) and three teams on pace for 105+ wins in the American League ([b]Astros[/b], Red Sox, Yankees). Of course the postseason is interesting due to the randomness of the sport but the gap be...

re: Does Schumer still believe in his immigration reform from 2009? - Stagg8

Looks pret...
