Re: The Edmonton Oilers/All Things McDavid

But why the heck does this deal get signed today!? This makes no sense! Forget the insanely inflated salary, why is it being signed in January? This isn't Erik Karlsson. Are they afraid he will get better? Are they afraid teams will outbid them? They could make this deal anytime.

Chiarelli has to be gone at the end of the season, doesn't he? He has been a disaster in Edmonton. Considering all the really high draft choices they've had, kind of amazing that they've only made the playoffs once in recent memory, and probably won't this season.

Re: NFL Playoffs - Conference Championships

Am I crazy to think that the Chiefs should have tried an onside kick at the start of OT? Their defense played well for 3.5 quarters but seemed completely gassed at that point. I don't know if their defense was gassed. It's not like the Pats matched down the field in 4 plays. They forced 3 3rd and 1...

Speaking of the Ford offside call, aren't there 100 coaches watching the line?

Is it someone's responsibility to notice that and call timeout?
Or does it happen too fast? Or was that too close to call?

Zverev has a temperament problem. He tries to win every point and gets upset if anything goes wrong.

Re: Do you use a fork to eat french fries?

depends on the main dish that goes with fries

if fish and chips, since i need a fork for the fish i use a fork for the fries

if burger, then i don't need a fork at all

in the example above from giff, i would not use a fork since i'm holding the chili dog.
