    Season opt out

    Right now high school is questionable like college talking about in conference only but if the kids don't go to class for whatever reason scratch sports. Professional football I wouldn't give you any odds that they finish a full season.

    The official Terry Pluto thread

    Terry's article in a nutshell: Q: What does this have to do with the Browns? A: The 49ers tend to do running back by committee. They believe you can find them most anywhere. Mostert is an example. It’s not where you spend big money. Q: What about David Njoku wanting to be traded? A: When it comes to the Browns’ tight end, just like I wrote last week ... you gotta be kidding! He hasn’t been productive enough to make that demand, although it’s a free country when it comes to these matters. We’ll see what the Browns do.

    Season opt out

    We'll see how the actual 2020 season goes compared to the plans. I can see why some people will choose the opt out in Cleveland and even with the reduced seating in Pittsburgh.

  7. .......oh those crazy Ukranians. This will be a hard year to try and set lines like favorites and a point spreads.
  8. But what if there's NO sports wagering in FOOTBALL this year ? Well there's always something else.....I hope !? This is TRUE by the way....... from Yahoo sports. Ukrainian table tennis betting suspended in New Jersey over match-fixing concerns Ryan YoungWriter Yahoo SportsJuly 9, 2020, 8:36 PM Without traditional sports to bet on over the past several months, fans have had to turn to new, obscure and often international events to bet on amid the COVID-19 pandemic — which halted most sports worldwide for several months. Many in the United States, apparently, turned to international table tennis. According to ESPN, sportsbooks in the country saw “hundreds of thousands of dollars” wagered on table tennis each day during the coronavirus pandemic. New Jersey, however, halted gambling on Ukrainian table tennis on Thursday after concerns that the matches were being fixed, according to ESPN. The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement instructed all sportsbooks in the state to suspend betting on all table tennis matches in Ukraine or involving six specific players after it was alerted about match-fixing concerns earlier this week. The six players included are Liliia Zaitseva, Ivan Gaysin, Karen Dzhanibekyan, Eduard Panichev, Anastasia Efimova and Gleb Zotov. Bets can’t be placed on matches including the six players regardless of where the match is taking place. The ban in New Jersey will remain for the foreseeable future. An ESPN report in May found several irregularities with table tennis matches in both Ukraine and Russia, though several sportsbooks and regulators who responded to the network for comment said they didn’t find any irregular betting patterns nor had integrity concerns. Matches not overseen by the International Table Tennis Federation and the European Table Tennis Union, however, provided the biggest concerns — as it is often unclear who is actually overseeing and regulating the matches. The UTTF, per the report, disqualified 365 players for competing in Setka Cup matches during the coronavirus pandemic. Indiana has since suspended betting on any table tennis events not run by the ITTF or ETTU, though Colorado and Nevada have carried on normally. The specific concerns regarding fixed matches aren’t clear, nor is it clear whether the alleged match fixing was taking place in New Jersey or overseas. One thing, however, is clear: Sports fans in New Jersey will have to find a new sport to bet on for the time being.
  9. After being away since January 29...... cheerleaders.

    Nothing wrong with working your way through YSU I did it twice nothing wrong with $0 in student loans either. I had four younger brothers and wasn't going to hit my parents up with my education.....they spent enough on my brothers as it was. I was able to buy a house each time I graduated, something today's students can't even think about with the tuition and especially room and room and board costs. The stories I heard from nursing and med students in my recent hospital visits were shocking on their loan debts.
  12. Good points. The reality now is can a family of four attend a road trip to see an NFL or even BROWNS football game with all of the nice gameday amenities ? Do they have to save up all year to see just one game ? You long time season ticket holders can weigh in on that on how things have changed from the of Muni dog pound era to the experience now at the new super nice ($$$$) experience. I remember just buying individual tickets and getting a hotdog or two or three and a few beers in the 1970s and 1980s. To be honest my superintendent in a mill I worked in used to give me complimentary 50 yard line tickets when available plus a friend who had INDIANS connections occasionally would get us loge tickets back in that era but regular seats were just fine and you wouldn't spend close to $50 for everything......great memories. I'm a free market capitalist too but is attending a professional football game becoming a well-to-do activity now ?
  13. Another question can KC come close to the NE model for building a dynasty in the 2020s ? (The quick reaction is probably NO but can it work?)
