    New Stadium in Las Vegs

    Well, what I'm talking about is that ''NOTHING'' works every way. Any soccer fan I introduce to american football, I have to explain the importance of a guy running for 2 yards and being stopped, and then another time when a QB misses a pass, and then a punt. In soccer you have more real action time, and a way bigger percentage for the overall match time. But in American Football, you have way less playing time, but I'm not going to be the one saying it is action packed and more intense. The point I'm trying to get across is that, to put it simply: -Soccer fans enjoy a sport where most of the time the ball is moving, with the tactic consisting on playing both at the same time defense and attack, thus making it a more easy paced sport that never stops. -American Football fans enjoy a sport where most of the time the ball is dead, with the tactic consisting on trying to solve the position that is given any given time by the rival, and with short time spans of action, thus making it a sport of top speed, and phisicallity. So, the same ''rarara nothing happens in soccer, it's boring blablabla'' can be said to American Football too. Furthermore, now that I'm thinking of it, I'm going to say that if there was NO TV (no replays, no different angles, etc.), I would probably enjoy more soccer than american football.

    New Stadium in Las Vegs

    Three key games? There were only three games played. There were many attempts in at least two of them (the other one was Serbia-Costa Rica and I know anything about it). It is all about perspective. If you ONLY value goals, then you have a point, but goals are more scarce in soccer thus making them more exciting. I love american football but I tell you that I celebrate 10 times more a goal than a touchdown due to this condition. Following that kind of perspective, the sport this board is about could be a bit lame because you are given 4 DOWNS TO ADVANCE 10 YARDS. And in baseball IIRC very few batters reach even 0.500, meaning that more than half of the time there's absolutely nothing happening. EDIT. Both american football and baseball games average more than 3 hours of time. You have (in football's case) 1h of game clock. Real playing time? 10-12 minutes of REAL ACTION. Soccer: a match lasts 1h 45min, many times more than that because of extra time. Let's say 2h. You have a 1h 30min (90min) game clock, with 40mins of REAL ACTION. 12/180 = 6.67 per cent of real action time per overall time. 40/120 = 33.33 per cent of real action time per overall time in soccer. See that I've been generous towards american sports and there's 5 times more action in soccer.

    Tank Carder Question

    You fell into Zombo's hands... Now you'll probably end up as "Fa.g attack" or "Gun my pants"
  4. Good news, in my opinion. He has been the only consistent playmaker with no help at all during these years, so he's worth it.

    That was an interesting story, Zombo. Thanks for sharing.

    Guys, I just hacked his account and found his e-mail, so we can send him death threats, viruses and spam e-mails. That's the modus operandi when someone leaves the board, right?

    Foles spurns Browns

    To me, it says more of the Eagles not being certain on Wentz status for this season than of Foles himself. But if he did ever have to make that decision, not accepting Browns' job was clever. Being a back up quaterback who has won a Superbowl ring is like retiring in the summit of your career and keep getting paid for it.

    Browns at Texans... Dec 2

    Nosebleed seats... That's an interesting term I'm going to save in my vocabulary!

    WR position

    This comment made me think about the following: we are in an enviable position at 'WR mindset'. We have Gordon and maybe even the recently dad Callaway one suspension away from ending their careers; Coleman, Ricardo and Higgins need to prove they're worth keeping; Ratley is a late round pick and has to earn the position and Janis is in a one year contract. That leaves Landry "without pressure", but I'd expect a player with a big contract relaxing and not playing as hard maybe in year 3 or 4, but in his first year? I'd say he will show gratitude and bring some of the magic he had in Miami, to say the least.

    Browns at Texans... Dec 2

    How is it that two years in a row, the game is AT Houston? I know last year we played against AFC South and this year Houston as the 4th in that Division, but what determines which games are home and away?

    Browns selected for Hard Knocks

    Now, if the season goes south, at least we can say they entertained us! Great news. I will watch every episode.

    Seeking for prayers

    Hi guys. Now that it's no-news season time in football, I think it's appropiate to give you an update on Marta. She was discharged one week ago and is back home. Her status is as follows: she has complete intelectual abilities and understands everything; she can't keep her eyes focused on people, has a lost stare, but keeps some sense of humor. She can walk but needs help to keep balance as she has none on her own, so she mostly goes on wheelchair. She can eat but hasn't fully recovered her swallowing, so it's mostly purées for her I'd say, but can eat solid. She can barely talk and it's like she runs out of air when trying. The thing is that swallowing and relearning to breathe and speak are the processes that take the longest in these cases, so it's not surprise there. Having her back home has given back some "normality" to familys life (daughters were most of the times at granparents') but it's a whole new battle from now on. An ambulance takes her to rehab every day so she's still progressing but this will be a long process and nobody knows when will she stop progressing. Her family is happy but the one that struggles the most (for obvious reasons) is her husband. He takes care of her and is very caring (more than ever, actually) but suffers a lot. Anyway, he has still faith, hasn't given up and rests in his family, so there's something to be positive about. Thank you everyone again for your prayers, we still pray for them to God, so she fully recovers and gives them strength in this battle, so we are grateful to anyone who joins us anytime
