re: Chris Landry on Les Miles and Matt Canada situations - DestrehanTiger
[quote]Then Alleva is the tool that fell for it. I don't blame Les for trying to leverage his position (everyone does). If Joe knew it was just a leverage ploy then why fall for it? The fact is the Michigan opportunities were real. Arkansas wasn't. [/quote] Exactly. It's the agent's job to try to...

re: A question about Zelda games - DestrehanTiger
I actually bought the Switch just for BOTW. I am not disappointed. I am not a huge gamer like most on here, but it's my favorite solo game I've ever played. It is very different than Ocarina of Time and Majora's mask, though. You will recognize a lot of names and characters, but there are probably m...

re: Redskins T Trent Williams is ok with his nickname - DestrehanTiger
I've always thought Silverbacks would be a great team nickname. It's a shame it won't happen. I'd also like to add that this is the second thing that makes me like Trent. #1 was him sort of punching Richard Sherman. [img]https://usatthebiglead.files.wordpress.com/2013/01/sherman2-1-6-131.gif[/...

re: World Cup Format - 2026 and Beyond - DestrehanTiger
My main gripe with the change is the 3.5 years leading up to the tournament. I understand we always said the USA will always qualify, then they didn't. With the new set up, it will essentially be a given (obviously it's a given in 2026). Other than faux gold cup excitement, this expansion is really...

re: TV Relationships that were much better before they got together. - DestrehanTiger
I'd say that 90% of the time, the show suffers. So, there will be a lot of examples. I'm just going to mention one that I think didn't have a negative impact on the show. Jake and Amy getting together in Brooklyn 99 has been at worst neutral impact on the show. I'd argue that it has almost made i...

re: Golf lessons in Houston area? - DestrehanTiger
[quote]Whatever you do, don’t go to GolfTec.[/quote] I did, and I will agree with you. Forget that I don't think they do a good job, it's just not enjoyable. If I'm not going to get great instruction, I at least want to get a decent range experience from it. It got old quick just hitting into the...

re: Emmitt Williams and the Tigahs puttin in WORK - DestrehanTiger
[quote]Those shorts are sweet. I’m guessing they aren’t available for sale anywhere?[/quote] I was coming to post the same thing. Just like with the football team, the teams have a ton of apparel with the new Tiger head logo, but you don't find that logo on a lot of merchandise. I just don't get ...

re: The Ringer's Robert Mays: "Saints betting Big on Drew Brees next two years" - DestrehanTiger
[quote]As far as I got reading one line of that retards regurgitations.[/quote] To be fair to Mays, the first sentence is correct and the second sentence is just asking a question. I think it has way more to do with being ahead more often and having a way better running game than any Saints team ...

re: Qatar 2022 will be held in Nov-Dec - DestrehanTiger
[quote]It is really going to suck for the top clubs who are loaded with international players. These guys will be out a month playing in the WC and have to come straight back in to the PL. [/quote] I'm also curious how it will impact the actual cohesiveness of the WC squads. Teams usually have ab...

re: Why aren't the semi's played on the same day? - DestrehanTiger
[quote]elps balance out the travel. The team that wins tomorrow does not have to travel since they are already in Moscow where the final is played. The team that wins today in St. Petersburg has to spend some time getting to Moscow ~450 miles away. [/quote] I didn't know this. That's actually a f...

re: Why isn't US men's soccer better than it is? - DestrehanTiger
[quote]I’m not sure if this has been mentioned or if they are even implementing this now, but the first few years kids are playing soccer they should have smaller teams on a smaller field. Like 5 v 5. That way they will get more on-ball experience in game and force them to adapt to a faster pace. Br...

re: WNBA #1 Pick upset about gender pay gap between NBA and WNBA - DestrehanTiger

When these threads come up, I think the people that bring up amount of time worked are spinning their wheels for no reason. If the NBA was 34 games and the WNBA 82, it still wouldn't be a good ar...
