    I think Conor will win this fight. I don't think he deserves to, but I think he'll win. He's just proven himself too many times. And I don't think Khabib has what it takes to knock or tap Conor out. What do you think?

    McGregor's an asshole that honestly doesn't deserve this fight. But since it's happening, I agree with you.

    They might be settling down into a 1qb solution, with Hurts coming in as something of a closer, like in baseball. Tagovailoa is just too good to share in my opinion. He was lights out against Arkansas: Box Score

    Almost covered the spread of 35! lol, won by 34.. whatever, if you ever see a spread that much, take it.

    There's a good chance Tiger and Phil won't be on the team in 4 years. Wonder how much of a difference that'll make. US lost pretty bad this time.

    Why the U.S. fails miserably every time it comes to Europe

    Good read. Explains why Tiger always seems to suck at the Ryder.

    Maybe both were draws. I think the judges and boxing in general want Canelo to win out. So I think in both fights he got points he probly shouldn't have. I consider both of their fights even, with an eventual third fight being the tiebreaker.

    Amazed that Alabama isn't #1. Makes sense with Texas being above them, with the Longhorn Network and that ESPN deal. But did not expect the Aggies to even be in the top 5. So that's pretty surprising. All the other ones make total sense I think.

    This backlash would make a whole lot more sense if the ad was any kind of controversial. But it doesn't make any reference to sitting or standing or kneeling or protesting or the NFL or Trump or .. any of it. It simply has Kaepernick in the ad. I fail to understand the outrage.

    This is the ad we are all talking about here, yes?

    I think the conversation has just expanded. But you're right, the focus has definitely shifted away from police brutality and racial inequality being at the center of this whole thing. It's still there, at least from what I've seen from YouTube videos and articles talking about it in relation to player protests, it's just being overshadowed by Trump and Nike at the moment.

    Though it probably won't go back to being the center of the conversation. And that's the point. So I guess I have to agree.. it has been lost.

    USA Today Sports put together a really cool list of 50 facts for the 50th anniversary of the US Open (tennis). Fun read for tennis fans.

    Of the 4 grand slam tournaments, I like the US Open the most. That or the Australian Open as they are the least pretentious. Though the heat in Australia makes me feel bad for the players. So US Open gets the edge. Plus the payouts are highest for the US Open; gotta think players enjoy it the most as well (in its current form now anyways).


    From the list, a few standouts:

    4. This year, the singles winners will get $3.8 million. In comparison, golfer Patrick Reed made $1.98 million for winning The Masters, the most prestigious event in that sport.

    5. Just for making the tournament, a player is guaranteed $54,000. A first-round win (coupled with a second-round loss) nets $93,000.

    9. Arthur Ashe Stadium is the world’s largest tennis arena, with a capacity of 23,771. That’s more than 6,000 seats bigger than any other stadium in the sport.

    10. The new $600 million Louis Armstrong Stadium opens this year, with 14,000 seats and a retractable roof of its own. That makes the US Open’s No. 2 court almost as big as the three main show courts at the other Slams (Rod Laver Arena, Court Philippe Chatrier and Centre Court).

    25. The US Open is the only major to play a final-set tiebreak, though it hasn’t come into play all the much.

    26. In the 16 years between 1996 and 2011, the women’s final was decided in straight sets, the longest run in Grand Slam history, by far.

    Came across this article from NFL.com and had me shaking my head at some of their calls. It ranks all 32 teams for 2018 based on how dynamic their triplets are, being their quarterback, starting running back and what they call the team's best pass catcher. Many a times they count the tight end over the #1 WR.

    I do have to agree hands down that the Steelers are #1. Roethlisberger + Le'Veon Bell + Antonio Brown, that's close to as good as it gets. Their #2 call is very strong too with the Saints: Brees/Kamara/Thomas. Though it's a close call for me vs the Chargers.

    After that, the rest of their top 10 is in this order: Pats, Falcons, Chargers, Panthers, Packers, Vikings, Giants and Texans.

    I would go:

    1 - Steelers (Ben Roethlisberger/LeVeon Bell/Antonio Brown)
    2 (tie) - Saints (Drew Brees/Alvin Kamara/Michael Thomas)
    2 (tie) - Chargers (Phillip Rivers/Melvin Gordon/Keenan Allen)

    4 - Falcons (Matt Ryan/Devonta Freeman/Julio Jones)
    5 - Pats (Tom Brady/Sony Michel/Rob Gronkowski)

    6 - Giants (Eli Manning/Saquon Barkley/Odell Beckham)
    7 - Texans (Deshaun Watson/Lamar Miller/DeAndre Hopkins)
    8 - Seahawks (Russell Wilson/Rashaad Penny/Doug Baldwin)
    9 - Rams (Jared Goff/Todd Gurley/Bradin Cooks)
    10 - Cardinals (Josh Rosen/David Johnson/Larry Fitzgerald)


    Tough call leaving out the Cowboys, Vikings, Packers, Eagles. Those would be my next tier at 11-14.

    How would you order it? Who is in your top 3,5 or even top 10? Doesn't have to be this year actually. Could even go with who is the best trio of all time? Does Aikman/Emmitt/Irving land #1, or are the Steelers right now actually better?? With that, I am not sure... Any other trio beat that?
