  1. Oh you better believe Kroenke is one of the chief architects of this. He's despicable. Side note about Kroenke for those not in the know about US sports that is probably very relevant regarding The Super League. He owns the Denver Nuggets and Colorado Avalanche in the NBA and NHL respectively. Both teams are extremely good, and the Nuggets are led by presumptive league MVP Nikola Jokic. Great time to be a fan of these teams in Denver, right? Well you'd be wrong. Kroenke and the biggest TV provider in Denver have been in a prolonged stalemate and basically no one in the city and surroundin
  2. https://www.mancityosc.com/post/european-super-league I'm sure there's other supporters groups out there with similar statements. It's the fans in China, in the US, in India who the Super League is for though. I think this will just fall on deaf ears in the front offices of most of these clubs.
  3. Aaron Hicks is an interesting situation since they weirdly signed him to that 7-year extension a few years back. So they're basically stuck with him on the team and it appears that leads to treating him like a player they have to start.
  4. Another thing with this is what happens in the future when a oil and gas billionaire or a tech billionaire wants to spend some of that money on a club? And then they buy one outside the Super League because that's what's available. Do they just bribe their way in? How does that work? Would it be like a franchise system, with an ever-expanding league footprint as soon as someone pays enough to join?
  5. I was thinking more along the lines of Boone not making it to Memorial Day. Yanks don't even seem to be scuffling, they just seem to be bad. And when you're spending that much on a team that is aging as the Yanks are you have to do whatever you can to win right now because that window is closing sooner rather than later. Making a change at the top strikes me as a nearly necessary decision if they're close to falling too far behind.
  6. So how much longer does Aaron Boone have as manager?
  7. The entire gimmick is having Paul rack up enough wins against guys taking dives, etc and then cashing out with a massive PPV against a real boxer who just punches his face in. I suppose this is exactly what Jake Paul is planning as well. He's gotta be in on it.
  8. Week 29 Matches; Chelsea 2-0 Brighton (Tue 8pm, Sky) Tottenham 2-1 Southampton (Wed 6pm, Sky) Aston Villa 1-3 Man City (Wed 8.15pm, Sky) Leicester 2-0 West Brom (Thurs 8pm, BT) Arsenal 1-1 Everton (Fri 8pm, Sky) Week 30 Matches; Liverpool 1-0 Newcastle (Sat 12.30pm, BT) West Ham 1-2 Chelsea (Sat 5.30pm, Sky) Sheff Utd 0-1 Brighton (Sat 8pm, Sky) Wolves 1-0 Burnley (Sun 12pm, BBC) Leeds 1-3 Man Utd (Sun 2pm, Sky)
  9. 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
  10. Bayern and PSG are against the proposal. They'd be the two I'd figure would benefit the least since they'll always finish top 2-3 in their domestic leagues so there's no financial loss they'll risk incurring that a big club, especially in England, might face. I don't actually think this sees the light of day and will just be used as a bargaining chip from these big clubs to get a ton of concessions out of their domestic leagues and UEFA.
  11. Chris Davis considers retiring a selfish act.
  12. This Mookie Betts fella is pretty good. I'm sure if he was part of my organization I would make sure to keep him for the rest of his career and never, ever entertain the idea of trading him.
  13. 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.
  14. Incredible work by Bob Bradley to just immediately sub him off after picking up the slightest of limps, something you basically never see in any level of football.
