    In 2019 the PGA Championship tournament is going to happen in May, and not August like usual. The move is coming thanks to really low ratings in the golf world this time of year. Not hard to believe as you have the NFL gearing up, world soccer qualifiers, and even the Olympics every other year. And baseball postseason edging closer. To name a few.

    So this should really help the grand slam of golf get the spotlight it deserves. Really makes more sense for golf in general to make this move. More focus can be on the summer being all about golf, than the sort of awkward schedule it has going now, that spreads across seasons and bleeds into other major sport's scheduling.

    I'd like to think of the 16 AFC teams that one of the other 15 can unseat the Patriots as the clear favorite. But I have a feeling they will repeat and make it back to the Super Bowl yet again. Adding Bradin Cooks to the wide receiver corp I think will be a big deal for Brady. And adding Mike Gillislee at running back was a pretty slick move too. They won last year with a piece mill team, and it just got a lot better.

    I guess there's always hope for the Steelers. But their biggest problem has always been keeping Big Ben healthy. Then there are the Chiefs and Texans, both have great defenses and subpar offenses.. I just don't see them winning in the playoffs.

    As for the NFC.. it's much harder. Green Bay, Seattle, Atlanta, and Dallas I see as being the front-runners of their divisions. Though the Giants adding Bradon Marshall could be a big deal too..

    My early prediction is not a bold one: Green Bay vs New England. But I would most like to see the Cowboys and Steelers, for whatever that's worth.

    Anyone see this season going another way?

    :D I'm torn. I agree with you in theory. BUT.. Conor is so good at trash talk, I find it highly entertaining too watch. For sure it's the equivalent excuse to someone defending the Real Housewives of .. wherever. But I still find it entertaining nonetheless, guess the term is guilty pleasure. At the end of the day, they are just words.. though I don't think all 'words' are created equal. There are lines, I just haven't felt Conor has crossed any just yet.

    Mayweather's actions in the past towards women in particular have crossed lines though. And that's another reason I don't mind seeing Conor go after him. What I also don't like is watching other fighters who are not as good at trash talk as Conor is try and emulate him, after seeing how popular it has made him. Just looks clumsy, transparent and silly to me. Watching Floyd try and keep pace with Conor is kind of painful.

    Spieth just won the British Open, giving him his third Grand Slam victory before the age of 24. Only one other golfer in history has managed to pull that feat off at that age, Jack Nickalus. That puts him above Tiger Woods, Arnold Palmer, you name it. Just when I decided to think of Spieth as just another of a whole lot of good golfers going today, he surprises me again.

    So he also won the Masters and US Open, leaving only the PGA Championship. Unfortunately Spieth turns 24 next week, and the PGA isn't until next month. But still, if he wins there, that I think would make him the youngest to win all 4. I would imagine anyways... when did Nickalus win his 4th, anyone know?

    That is pretty unusual. Spieth is holding strong through Round 2. So whatever he's doing is working. Sitting alone at the top right now at -6. Would be a huge confidence win for him I would think.

    Yeah, looks like the shoulder got the best of him. Must suck to compete at like 50%, knowing you are way better than what people are seeing. Here's him talking right after -

    That's my feeling, that it's not taken AS seriously. And the competition isn't AS hard. Still, it's a qualifier for the ultimate stage. Pretty important for all teams involved. Surprises me that teams like Costa Rica or Brazil haven't ever won.

    And then there were 3; down goes Nadal. Pretty epic try on his part though. Here's the recap if interested:

    Not surprisingly, Sagan appealed, and got quickly rejected. I think the committee is just playing it safe here.

    Sucks all around, as Sagan stays out, and Cavendish broke his shoulder blade in the crash, and is obviously out of the race as well.

    So I've watched this crash from a few different angles. Videos below. Gotta say I think a full disqualification from the rest of the race was way too harsh for Peter Sagan. Yes, from one angle you can clearly see him stick out his elbow. But from another, you can't really see that at all, and it looks like he was put in a very tight and bad situation, that he had to make the best of it, or crash himself.

    Do you think he should have been disqualified for this crash??
