re: Is there a better opening episode than S1E1 of Breaking Bad? - TheIrishFro
Say what you want about the series in it's later seasons but the LOST pilot is up there with the best. Wasn't it the most expensive pilot ever created?...

Lallana grabs a player by the neck in the U-23 game and was sent off. Looks like red cards carry over into first team matches so let's see how many games he'll be banned. Link for video. [link=(https://streamable.com/nrjkz)]LINK[/link] ...

re: Match Day 2/4 - TheIrishFro
There was contact, but not all contact is a penalty. VVD pulled away as soon as Lamela got in his way. Look at the replay from an alternate angle, and you can see he didn't receive much contact. The contact wasn't enough to award a penalty and it didn't cause him to fall down in pain. He dived. ...

Another possibility is actually to pay people on how well they draw them. It sounds counterintuitive and almost too easily corruptible but places do it in the world. You pay the worker based on equally the districts have been. The worker will draw them as equally as possible in order to get paid wel...

re: Thoughts on what is taught in Louisiana Public Schools Re: World Religions - TheIrishFro
Yeah this thread is going as expected. In the last 100 years since WW1 many things have changed, too many of these posters are thinking of this time and thinking it's always been the same throughout history. The things you've shown that are to be taught, aren't wrong. Though to be fair some thin...

Do you consider Nirvana classic rock now? - TheIrishFro
When growing up, classic rock stations never played grunge/alternative rock songs that began to appear in the early 90's. So it always seemed to me that classic rock was rock before this time i.e. The classics. But recently I heard a classic rock station playing Nirvana and it caught me off guard. F...

re: WBB: Lady Techsters get win #1,100 - TheIrishFro
Letting Mulkey go to Baylor doomed the program. There's no way for Tech to keep up with the money put into programs now. Mulkey could have kept them be a conference champion every year and a nice NCAA run every few years. Chris Long was the worst coaching hire- first season ever not making the NCAA ...

re: Anyone been to a Real Madrid game? - TheIrishFro
You can bring drinks and snacks into the stadiums so if you want to save money you can buy your own stuff ahead of time and bring it with you. Brush up on your Spanish also, Spain isn't too English friendly compared to the rest of Europe. Otherwise there's not much to it. It's a great place for a ma...

re: Are we really talking about a modern European country breaking apart in Civil War? - TheIrishFro
There won't be a civil war in Spain. The politics will get heated, and the majority of any violence will be between police and rioters. Catalonia doesn't have an army and it's police force is nothing compared to the national one. The few gun owners aren't going to be using their weapons for this eit...
