Re: Pirates vs. Reds Open Thread

At what point do we as fans decide that the current Pirates leadership has failed? I know it's early in the season and A LOT can (and hopefully does) change. However, we are seeing the same issues that we've seen for the past few years....inconsistent starters, lack of power up and down the line up...

Re: Coaches physical

Sounds like a school district solicitor trying to cover the school district collective backsides and avoid a potential lawsuit if a coach has heat related injury.....attorneys run our world!

Re: CC school board says split out the private schools

I have thrown this thought out on this message board before when this type of discussion has arisen. I have never had anyone who could refute this.......If the NCAA enacted new policy for the 2018 recruiting year that said Penn State and Temple could now only have student athletes on their rosters w...

Re: Pirates vs. Reds Open Thread

They may be better than the cubs at some point in 10 years. A lot of those studs the Cubs have now are on rookie contracts. Even the Cubs won't be able to keep paying them to stay there forever. Forget the Cubs though, i'd be happy to see the Bucs look competitive against the REDS. In the 3 games th...

Re: CFP committee

[ltr]If they only had one show then ESPN couldn't fill all those time slots each week with a CFB program. ESPN owns college FB. They don't have the same strangle hold on college basketball. The whole bowl season is dominated and totally managed by ESPN. I am pretty sure they broadcast every single b...

Re: World Series Open Thread

What is the deal with Lester and throwing to first? Does he have some kind of mental block that doesn't allow him to do it?
