  1. They can all fuck right off. The fans will surely hate it - how many are going to travel for midweek games across the continent all year round? The domestic leagues will all be completely devalued and I can only presume that the international game will also be lessened by it. The lot of them, every single team involved, wants jettisoning completely from every competition and told where to take their pursuit of greed.

  2. Bugger off with this. Clubs are in danger of going out of business completely and these big boys are pouting about temporarily bringing in slightly fewer millions.

  6. So the 2020 FCS season is still going on. This play happened. Also, and I'm not 100% sure of the exact circumstances, but the CAA selected Delaware as conference champs over JMU (who are measurably better). So Delaware gets an auto bid meaning the selection committee has to award an at-large to JMU. Basically a dirty to way for the conference to ensure two teams in the tournament field.

  8. Kick them out, don't fucking bend over backwards to give them some sort of deal to keep them in the league. They join this, they leave effective immediately and they don't come back.

  9. It's all to do with money and neither side give a shit about what the fans think. The league's will try and come across as the we want to protect sporting integrity etc when really it's about money. The big club's will argue look at this competition which the best clubs in the world play against each other regularly when really it's about money. Yet no one's asked fans and it's pretty much universally despised by the fans of the club's involved and the club's not involved.

  15. Don't be sorry. I am decidedly not in a noise rock or experimental phase at the moment, so not in a head space to listen to what you posted, but I think this thread has devolved into longer pieces that people can write and share whatever. Blogs are dead. So we need someplace to have long pieces about music. My head is not into experimental or noise rock because after being in a holding pattern of listening to electronic/ambient music, I have gone down a pop music rabbit hole. I have previously written here that I become hyper obsessed with certain genres/albums/artists and can just spend

  16. I can only imagine what a mess it would be letting the Assistant GM run a modern era game. Thankfully we just have the four minor league teams at this stage, so realizing my lowest minor league team which has no roster limit was comically overloaded stood out like a sore thumb. I went through and cleared out anyone from that team that either my scout or OSA saw had no potential. Released like 150 guys in one go. Checked the calendar and saw it was December 25, 1963. Uhh, Merry Christmas.

  21. I don't disagree with you, but I'm happy they're doing it. It's exactly the same as the flimsy reasons for rejecting the Newcastle takeover, load of shit but if it stops the horrible bollocks I'll take it. I just don't see how it can be sustainable. The same 12 teams playing each other year on year isn't entertaining (hell it isn't even a good number of teams), Liverpool never playing Everton again is absurd, and players with any ambition won't fall for it.

  22. I was going to say the timing is extremely suspect for a lot of reasons but this the biggest among them. These big clubs really just want to guarantee they won't lose the annual UEFA completions, specifically Champions League, revenue. Needless to say this process has really accelerated with the increase of foreign investment. The dream for sports owners is a US model where no matter what they all make money year over year. It's been rumored for decades but now that a club is just a part of wider investment portfolio these people just want to do whatever they can to make sure they will co

  23. Sky need to fuck off trying to pretend their the saviours of football with their coverage. It's all a money grab. Happened with the Premier League wanting to break away from the football league and now its happening again. Hopefully the idea dies a death soon. I do think UEFA need to stop changing the format of their competitions though

  24. Big clubs have agreed to break away for a big money league, but the likes of Uefa and the individual football federations are obviously against it. It could mean everyone involved can't play in big tournaments like the Euros and the World Cup because Uefa/Fifa won't allow it, so for that reason I don't see it happening.

  25. UEFA and FIFA threatened banning players from their comps if there's a breakaway. We'll see what happens with that as they all want to play CL, Euros, World Cup etc. Hope this never materialises. Sky speaking out is funny. Gonna be awkward when they pay billions for the rights and charge us extra for the subscriptions.

  32. Actually I have a weird fucking essay that I never thought I'd write. I have a lot of respect for the Insane Clown Posse. ICP. This isn't some sentimental thing because they're hometown boys, but like their whole cult of personality kind of blows my mind. I'm not a particularly big fan of their music but....I also don't hate it either. I don't know, I like the culture and family thing they cultivated even if it is a crew of weirdos dressing like clowns and pretending to be axe murderers is oddly endearing. They've never really been a "mainstream music" act but they have a huge fuck

  36. Oh yeah, I don’t delegate any minor league stuff to my Assistant GM. They’re terrible. I let my minor league managers set line up and rotation though I do force start my better prospects. But my Assistant GM is basically relegated to setting ticket prices.

  37. Resumed my Mets game after I fell down the rabbit hole of re-doing the entire league history. The 1962 Mets were predictably terrible at 63-99, although it's not even in the same stratosphere of how bad they were in real life. My pitching was atrocious and terrible infield defense likely didn't help. I ended up shoring that up by dumping a veteran for Roberto Pena who is a good fielding 3B and, as I tried to shop around a couple of veterans I didn't want anymore, the White Sox to my surprise wanted both and were willing to unload Luis Aparicio to me. He wasn't hitting very well but dam

  41. Subbing Sissoko on for Lo Celso was such a grim statement of intent and it bled through the team after that. I've never been so apathetic towards a game because of a sub, while drawing. Then he takes Ndombele off - so that, once again, when we inevitably go behind because of his negative tactics, we don't have anyone in midfield who can progress the ball to the attackers to even launch a comeback. Fucking sick of Jose - I don't enjoy watching us play anymore. Should've been sacked months ago.

Yeah you'll need all that if you're trying to push +20s, but at that point you're being a bit unrealistic to think you can play casually and do the hardest content in the games hardest levels? Everything I've described is more than enough to clear +15s and heroic raids. And I did it all pugging it wi

  46. I mean to be honest the game has been one big bug for as long as I can remember. I mean Battle For Azeroth was (not so)fondly referred to as "Beta For Azeroth" and we've had the long running joke of Blizzard - That small indy company despite it being owned by Activision. It doesn't help that despite record profits over the last two years, they fired basically all of their QA testers. Add Covid into the mix and it's been a hell of a time. Their repeated cries of "We're listening" have amounted to absolutely nothing from a player perspective. .....and yet we still continue to play thi
