RIP Terry Jones

Brilliant member of Monty Python. Directed Life of Brian which is one of my all time favourite films.

Off to join a less absurd place.

Re: NFL Season 2019

Roughing the passer has to be called both ways. You called the one on Wilson but dont call the one on MCcown. What was the difference asshole? This ref is clearly too incompetent to be doing a game cause I wont say he is cheating. Though the eagle eyed c*** ALSO missed the head to head on Wentz. I’...

Re: NFL Season 2019

Tannehill didn’t play that well but when you’ve got a stud running back and relatively good defense you can get away with a QB whose decent but not great. And they were playing a Patriots team whose offense has been in big trouble most of the second half of the season. Watched the Bills game yesterd...

Yep, but boy it’s astounding how Croatia can be technically better and still be 3-1 down.

and 4-1 down

Much of the credit to Croatia for pushing.
What an absolutely bizarre final!

Re: The Beautiful Game thread, season 2017/18

That’s pretty harsh. Arm was returning to the side as he was in the air following the jump so looked to me like it was in the natural position. Croatia definitely were better in the first half and even the first free kick awarded France on their goal was harsh.

Re: The Beautiful Game thread, season 2017/18

What. A. Game. Japan clearly thought they had the advantage if they kept attacking, yet that is what killed them in the end. That and the size of Lukaku and Fellini on the crosses. Absolutely incredible comeback by Belgium. Props to Japan for not parking the bus. Amazing how passes into the box by ...

Re: NFL 2016/2017

Wow, those Vikings...Just wow! Luck. Horrible play by the safety. And Keenum, on the previous drive for FG, was putting it up for grabs a couple of time and had to settle for 55-yard FG, which left too much time for Brees. Only thing I can think is that the safety was afraid of getting to the playe...

Re: NFL 2016/2017

Boy Steelers defense has been an absolute horror show but there have been some real WTF play calls by them on the two failed 4th down attempts and the decision to go for the onside kick. Absolutely bizarre.

Re: NFL 2016/2017

Makes a big difference now that the Pats are facing a QB like Ryan and not the utter shite they go up against much of the season in their own division.

Great play jumping the route for the pick 6. They've been taking a lot of legit holding calls but the secondary made a great play there.

Anyone here still play board war games like those sims produced in the 70s by Avalon Hill, SPI and GDW? I played a ton of those games in the mid- to late 70s and early 80s and always ponder about returning to that hobby. I would say 1/3rd of my collection are "war games" things have changed a bit s...
