pathetic ending on the part of the Cavs to an otherwise dominant game by them.

fuck LeBron. he's the most bitchmade 6'8" player in NBA history. he creates fouls that dont exist by his next level flopping.

when you know you cant win and you need to resort to that kinda bullshit to win you gotta question what's the point of the finals. if i were betting on this shit i'd be pissed.

My dad doesn't like Lebron very much either yet he's conflicted because he wants to see Cleveland at least win for once. Yet, he prefers to watch Copa America and the Euro Cup.

Not saying LeBron doesn'y flop, but c'mon. Draymond has spent the entirety of the playoffs waging war on opposing players' dick and balls and had - until he got to James - run unchecked. Poor officiating goes back a series when GSW should have been eliminated by OKC.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have done the impossible and made a series comeback from a 3-1 deficit in the NBA Finals and LeBron James has fulfilled his promise to win a championship for the city of Cleveland. I wonder how all the fans who burned his jersey when he left for Miami feel now.

Game 7 was fantastic. What a finish. Happy for the Cavs. LeBron and co. certainly deserved it. Curry put up like three or four 3-point attempts in the last minute and a half, and I was sure each one of them was going in..but then Kyrie hit the backbreaking shot. Such a tense game. Loved it.

Cry while dabbing his eyes with his dirty millions because he chased a ring rather than stay with a team that was a game away (and one good performance that Durant didn't deliver) from the Finals.

Chase the money, chase the rings, do what you think is best for your career. This probably is, because now the Warriors are a super super team. It's still a bitch move.

Jon Jones is a piece of shit and this was 100% inevitable.

I don't want to see him on a UFC card ever again because he probably won't make it to the fight without doing something dumb as fuck.

My Mavs got hold of Andrew Bogut and Harrison Barnes, both from Golden State.
And Dirk's $40 million dollar deal just turned into a $50 million dollar deal. I am happy about this because it's like a reward for his loyalty. I mean, he's pushin' 40 and i doubt he's gonna be playing 50 million dollars worth of basketball anytime soon. But he IS dallas texas, and he deserves it.

Meanwhile, Golden State will be unbeatable for the next 10 years with their acquisition of Kevin Durant. They are the new Lakers.

I just wanna see dirk make it to the western conference championship one more time. They don't even have to win. He has his ring. I just want him to get one more good run. (and then i'm gonna cry and cry when he retires. No shit, he is absolutely my hero.) The new players, along with us possibly getting the giant Greg Monroe from the Bucks, might make a good run possible.

I'm starting to feel bad for Tony Romo.

gorast
08-26-2016, 07:53 PM
I can appreciate his desire to never quit. I don't care what the motivation is at this point of his career, if he's worried he'll lose his spot or what. It takes a lot of heart to move past the injuries that Romo has had and try to get back on the field as much as possible, even if it's a terrible idea like it was last year when he came back from the collarbone break.

That said, I think he has two years, max. I feel like it's going to be only one year because he may very well get knocked out for the season, and someone's going to tell him to pull the plug on it after that.

I don't understand why the Vikings have treated his injury the way they have. The whole thing was shrouded in secrecy for a few hours and there were reports of players cursing the heavens. Sucks that he got hurt, but it's Teddy Bridgwater, not Manning in his prime.

i bleed blue.
it's so sad about Romo. Statistically, he is one of the best qbs of all time, but he never had the football iq to convert those numbers into viable seasons.
But watching him dismantle NY, improbably, in the first game of last season, i suddenly realized that i was watching a veteran, that Romo had finally acquired the necessary mental prowess to make a deep playoff run. And then, CRUNCH. So i waited for this season. THIS was gonna be our year.
And then, CRUNCH again.

In the small town where i now live, half of the 1700 residents come out for HS football. The field is right behind my house. We beat every team last year by ridiculous margins except for one, and then they knocked us out of the playoffs. But said roadblock team has been moved up to 3A. The little high school team here has won the state championship more than once, and so i'm thinking that this is where i will get my sports thrills this season.

Also, at least the mavs acquired young talent from the Warriors and OKC lost their superstar. I don't think anyone will be beating Golden State, but i bet Dallas plays them in the WC finals, and that will also be lovely.

Also even Ray Lewis said "How else you suppose to play?" It's football and you have a guy who plays physical and runs a lot. Then he is going to get banged up. Just my 2 cents. I have nothing against him or the Panthers. :)

I really hope his career trajectory is different than that of, say, Andrew Luck where his talent is wasted on garbage teams. (Obviously a small sample size for both involved, but you get what I'm saying.)

Agreed. I can understand Cowboy fans wanting to latch on to what is happening right now, but look at it realistically. They haven't played anyone yet.

Prescott should without a doubt be Romo's replacement. In six games, he has thrown one pick. Romo can't get through a half without a pick. BUT Jerry Jones has an unreasonable obsession with Romo because of all of the cash that they have sunk into his mediocre ass over the last decade. So who knows what will actually end up happening. Dak is exciting and fun to watch, though.

It's root root root for the home team for me.

I'm a MFFL (mavs fan for life.) I watched them from the eighties till the orgasmic moment when they won the championship, and i watch them now.
I am a permanent cowboys fan-i watched them when they were winning when i was young, and i watched them when they sucked.

I know we haven't exactly played any hardcore teams yet, but i bet we beat those motherfucking eagles.

This feels like one of those miracle seasons to me, and if Dak keeps playing, i think we have a reasonable chance of going to the superbowl.
My wife and i think Romo should be a special QB coach. I've heard a rumor that romo is talking into Dak's helmet electronically and telling him what to do. If that is true, we need to keep doing that. Perhaps Dak is doing what Romo wants to do in his mind, but lacks the physical talent to do himself.

I am a Dolphins fan since I was born and raised in Miami and recently moved to Texas. Has been a hard year as a phins fan so I am putting my cheers to the vikings this year and keeping my phins in the background. I refuse to support Stephen Ross and who ever is in the Miami front office with their constant piss poor choices.

Also, even though its nice to see the boys kicking some ass and part of the much more exciting NFC ( only afc team that has my interest is the raiders), I can never bring myself to be a cowboys fan due to the shit thrown at me from a friend.

I also agree that they should trade out Romo and get themselves another good young qb to back up prescott. Hopefully he is not a Kapernic one good year type of player.

Kyle was pulled too early and Lester was just all over the place when he came in, nearly gave me a fucking heart attack.

Loved how Jay Hey was the one to give a pep talk to the team to rile them up. I know he's been kind of a bust this season, but I think people underestimate how great he is defensively, like seriously, he's the best defensive outfielder in baseball, and with that lineup, he can sort of afford to underachieve with his bat.

So happy for Chicago, happy for the Cubs. I hate Cleveland, but I tip my hat to the Indians. I love Tito, and considering two of their starting pitchers got injured before the playoffs started, they fucking went toe to toe and that's admirable.

Dallas now has, hands down, the best record in the NFL, and the season is more than halfway over.
There is the whole "any given sunday" phenomenon, and we have no idea how this incarnation of the Cowboys will do under playoff level pressure, but it'd be pretty hard to do worse than romo, who is statistically one of the all time great QBs but seems to choke every time it counts.
It appears that after Dak started in place of a healthy Romo yesterday, Dak is now the QB. And Romo has agreed to be the backup for Prescott. (http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000738120/article/tony-romo-willing-to-be-backup-to-dak-prescott)
This is an exciting time to be a Cowboys fan. I don't see any reason why we can't make it to the superbowl.
I was raised to root for the home team. People who live in Texas and don't root for the Cowboys or the Texans, i don't understand. People who are able to do that, i guess for them, it's great. But i have suffered through years and years of the mavericks being the laughingstock of the NBA until we brought it home, and i've been waiting 20 years for the Cowboys to make a serious run.
Those of us who have suffered through the painful losses and heartbreaking seasons DESERVE a few winning Cowboys seasons, just like we deserved that NBA championship.
I am so fucking happy with the cowboys this year. But i will tell you guys what-i wore my Cowboys hat and one of my cowboys shirts at LEAST once a week LAST year too, when we won 4 fucking games.

Edit: i should add the caveat that if you come from somewhere else, i DEFINITELY understand being a fan of the team of your place of origin.

Amazing what can happen when they finally start letting go of an incredibly overpaid, remarkably average QB.

They are pretty fun to watch this year, though their fans have become even more insufferable, which makes it a little less fun.

If Ezekiel Elliott can keep his ass out of trouble, and get out of the investigation on him right now without facing any bans or punishment, it will be interesting to see how he can grow and progress. He is great. I hope it isn't a one off good year, because he makes the games exciting.

If Prescott continues to improve, he will be great, as well. Though he has one of, if not THE best O-Line protecting him right now. So that can shift and change rapidly from season to season.

So did you guys watch the traditional thanksgiving Cowboys @ Redskins game?
Did you notice how Dak and Zeke rammed it right up washington's ass?
So how about them motherfucking 10 and 1, best record in the NFL, LONGEST WINNING STREAK IN FRANCHISE HISTORY, Cowboys?

Good win, the first one over a team with a winning record since the Eagles in week eight. The upcoming schedule looks pretty favorable too. Not trying to rain on anyone's parade or anything, just being realistic. All that said, I'd much rather see Dallas have a good run than the Skins, Seahawks, most other teams in the NFC.

On another note, great game last night between KC and Denver. Can't believe the Chiefs were able to take it because there were so many times I thought it was over.

No. He's saying that the Cowboys haven't faced many teams who aren't terrible this year. Most of the teams they have faced have had losing records, so it is good to see how they stack up against teams that are not awful.

You misspelled Western Michigan ;-)

Kidding, of course, since I seem to be all alone in thinking my alma mater belongs in the Playoffs (I don't care about "strength" of "schedule"...you have to beat who's in front of you and you can't MAKE Power 5 teams play you when they have nothing to gain and everything to lose, and if you go 13-0 you deserve a shot at the title). I do think that Penn State should have gotten in over Ohio State though. If you can't win your conference, you don't deserve a shot at the title. Penn State should be playing Alabama while Clemson and Washington duke it out.

But if this year didn't prove that we need an 8 team playoff, I don't know what it would take to convince the powers that be.

Also, congrats to my Broncos on the Cotton Bowl. Bring on Wisconsin and hopefully another year of PJ Fleck!

Sarah K
12-04-2016, 10:05 PM
At the end of the day, it really doesn't matter. Alabama will steamroll whoever is placed in their path. But still...

Strength of schedule has to be taken into account, though. An non-Power 5 conference school going undefeated is not in the same league as a Power 5 school going undefeated. Is that going to be fair all of the time? Perhaps not, but it is reality. This will hopefully motivate all teams among all divisions and conferences to schedule tougher out of conference play instead of opting for the "gimme" games for the larger schools.

While an 8 team playoff would be nice, that would add a lot of games for these kids who are already juggling so much with being students and the countless hours of practice that they must put in to remain on these teams. Also just the general wear and tear that it does on their bodies(and the size and level of play of who would make it into that is big).

Though it will be interesting to me to see how the playoff scenario morphs and changes the further we get into it. I'm glad that it is at least happening, no matter how small it may be at the moment.

The thing is, we are used to getting our ass handed to us by teams with LOSING records, and out of nowhere, the proverbial script has been flipped.

As far as the fans being annoying, i think it's a matter of having lived it.
When i was 11, 12, 13-the Cows were the best team in the nfl.
And then we had like 20 something years of mostly being awful, to the point where i stopped watching them because it was too sad.
I dont remember where you are from originally,but i doubt your team has been worse than dallas.
So after a couple of decades of assuming we would lose every fucking game, we are suddenly winning.
It's quite thrilling. I apologize for the exuberance, but had you lived the experience that we have lived, i think you MIGHT understand. :)

furthermore, like 15 teams had losing records before last week, right?

edit: another thing that might be surprising is that it seems like most of the cowboys haters, at least from where i am sitting, are texans-friends and family.
So it's nice to see them finally be baffled by a surging Pokes club.

I agree about Manning the lesser. He annoys the crap out of me and I want nothing but bad things to happen to him.

Going back to Romo would be a huge mistake. Dallas, please make that move in two weeks when the Lions are in town.

I don't know how I'm going to handle next week. A Lions win and a Packers loss gives the Lions their first division title since the early 90s. A home playoff game? And even a shot at a first round bye? I have to be careful about getting excited, or we'll go 0-3 the rest of the way and miss the playoffs completely, but still have a crappy low pick.

So. NFL predictions?
If Dallas can avoid having to face the Giants, i think we win the NFC and possibly the big game itself.
Patriots are favored, but the Steelers could be in there too.
Normally i'm a NY fan because they are in our division and we HATE Washington and Philly. edit: and dallas doesn't usually win the division anymore, of course)
However, sorry NY, but this year, i really need you to lose that wildcard game.

I think i'm gonna go with what some of the odds are saying and pick Dallas and the Pats.
And even though we have no idea what a Dallas/NE matchup will look like, i'm picking Dallas to win by a field goal.
(i HAVE to pick dallas to win, i am a lifelong, long-suffering cowboys fan who has been waiting for them boys to return to their former glory-the glory they had when i was 13 to 16 years old, for TWENTY YEARS. I took it for granted.)

No matter what happens though, they have been a LOT of fun to watch this year, and as long as Jerry Jones doesn't do anythng monumentally stupid, we've got ourselves a ball team now and can likely look forward to several sucessful years from our breakout rookie stars.

GAH this title game. Nothing compares to college football to me. Nothing. Love the NFL, but it will never compare to college ball.

I love it when people don't understand football, so they dismiss it as "dumb". The intelligence required to play even at the college level is remarkable. Everything that has to be memorized, the split second decisions, reading coverage... So few are capable of it at an advanced level. Perhaps that is true of all high level team sports. I just do not know enough about the others to say that.

Players have died on the field before (it's very rare, but it's happened). Several others have died in the following days, be it directly from injuries, suicide, etc. I enjoy watching football a lot less now than I did a few years ago - it's starting to feel utterly pointless at the professional level. I'm all for a friendly game of two-hand touch at the park, but pro football seems like we're doing nothing more than offering massive financial incentive to put people at risk.
