If they havent won since 1960, and we haven't won since 1964, our time is coming!

What is wrong with the Cavs?  To have chemistry issues, etc. I could understand...BUT to learn that they are NOT playing hard, and are being called soft?  Whaaaaaaaaaaaa?  You make millions, you go out and play!   Plus the rumors and fingerpointing!  Of course, the media sensationalizes alot of it.


Right now, they are NOT a great team, and most have said a first round elimination.  Totally UNACCEPTABLE!

2018 SB not must see for me

Posted by vapor5 on January 26, 2018 at 6:50 AM Comments comments (21)

I watch the Red Zone during the season and the playoffs strain my patience. Over the years, I've watched the Super Bowl  with various combinations of family or friends. This year I'll tune in intermittently and likely will read a book or work on the short stories I never complete.

The final straw was the NFL rejecting a "please stand" TV ad from a group of military veterans. I watched  Hollywood promoting  immigration  via beer ads last SB, but our Vets are too polit...

Conference Round Ends with One Great Game.

Posted by Radatz on January 21, 2018 at 9:40 PM Comments comments (15)


We had one conference game that projected as a possible rout, another that looked like a dead heat. And we got that, but with the wrong games. Jacksonville pushed NE much like Atlanta had in last year's Super Bowl. Philadelphia rolled over a Minnesota team that was clearly not final four material.



NE 24 JAX 20:


Are these guys going to do this every year? I had their epitaph ready for 3 1/2 quarters with the name 'Coughlin' engraved s...

Mystery Sunday

Posted by Radatz on January 19, 2018 at 2:15 PM Comments comments (16)


The last few days have oddsmakers scrambling. Tom Brady's name has appeared (again) in Drudge headlines, and that's the most-read news source on Earth. I alway wondered what it felt like to be a Yankees fan in the '50s. Now I know. Mantle hurt his what?


[email protected]: I am curious yellow. I just heard Brady's media stint live. It was short. When asked about his status Sunday, these were his words: "We'll see." Asked if this injury were more mobility or pain management, ...

Divisional Wrap 2: Don't Fall Behind, Stupid

Posted by Radatz on January 14, 2018 at 8:45 PM Comments comments (7)


Pair of stunners, for different reasons. The one thing they had in common was that it's not a great idea to fall behind by three scores early, no matter who you are. Even if magic is required to prove it. Both games featured calls quietly reversed and flags picked up (same thing) on orders from NY. Nobody complained. The Patriots weren't involved.


MIN 30 NO 24: Remember when the Vikings were an also-ran without a real QB? Or the Saints were aging into oblivion? W...

Football!

Posted by JDIN827 on January 14, 2018 at 9:30 AM Comments comments (5)

Sure, people laughed, rolled their eyes, and made fun of Cleveland as usual. When I first heard about the parade, I thought the same. How dumb! AFTER I watched it, I changed my mind!


This was NOT a parade to CELEBRATE 0-16. This was a fan base, THEE most loyal, dedicated and passionate around TAKING A STAND. Defiance!  Defiance!  Decades of pure poop....ENOUGH! Bad draft choices, bad veteran choices, wrong coaching staffs time and time again, wrong front offi...

Division Wrap 1: Top Seeds

Posted by Radatz on January 14, 2018 at 12:10 AM Comments comments (19)


We saw two top seeds win, one anticipated, the other perhaps not. One game was a blowout; the other was close, low-scoring and a shade controversial.



PHI 15 ATL 10: It was sort of heartwarming to see the maligned Nick Foles engineer a low-scoring win for the Eagles, but this somewhat poorly-officiated game had a climax nobody mentioned. When Clement got the first down at the end following Atlanta's ill-timed offside, I ran it back several times and ea...

Divisional Roundup

Posted by Radatz on January 9, 2018 at 2:40 AM Comments comments (14)


Let's get this over with fast. That always works better in the large. Just the basics. Boring common sense.



[email protected]: New England is at home. They have the better coach. They have the better QB. They have more experience. They have a better record. They probably have some missing pieces returning to boot. They're the champs. How do you bet against them?


[email protected]: Pitt has the better QB. Pitt is at home. Pitt has the experience. Jax...

Late WC 2 Wrap

Posted by Radatz on January 8, 2018 at 1:40 PM Comments comments (11)


Pardon the late post, but yesterday was a busy day worthy of skipping out on (most of) the game broadcasts. You see, my son got married! And the date (Jan. 7) was also Mom's 100th birthday (hope she and Dad saw the wedding somehow), my Name Day, and Christmas on the old (Julian) calendar. Kinda cool. I did manage to check the radio or tv during a few lulls in the day's action and report back to my son (possibly the only other person in the place who was interested).
