Baseball seriously sucks, it's boring, they could shut down MLB tomorrow and I'd be happy especially since the channel that broadcasts the SF Giants games is a Fox affiliate and their games regularly screw up my viewing schedule.

I won the 2005 NFL Playoff Pool

The same people who put Trump in office run the NFL. No wonder it's not diverse : "Only once in nearly two decades has a club been penalized for non-compliance: [with the Rooney Rule] when the Detroit Lions couldn’t keep it in their pants long enough to at least do the dance before hiring Steve Mariucci, earning them a $200,000 fine in 2003."

Coronavirus: No professional sport in England until 1 June at earliest: 'Project Restart': Premier League facing decisive week over season resumption with rumors suggesting a June 12 date, which is also what La Liga hopes for. This is despite Dynamo Dresden's entire squad in isolation just a week before restart, a week ahead of football restarting in Germany.

Uefa asks European Leagues for decision on domestic seasons by 25 May: Germany and England are planning (hoping?) to restart fairly soon while the Netherlands and France have already cancelled the remainder of their seasons. Either way, UEFA wants the results decided based on "sporting merit" in the current season. On the plus side, FIFA may allow up to five subs per team per game for matches that are played.

STATEMENT ABOUT THE USWNT 2017-2021 CBA: USMNT comes out strong and hard in support of the USMNT (who just wiped the floor in Olympic qualifying) and against US Soccer. "Soccer is perhaps the most corrupt sport in the World. We do not want a US Soccer Federation that behaves like FIFA."

Better sign up for CBS All Access, prof, since all but two of the matches will be shown live on it.

NWSL to return on June 27 with month-long tournament although the USWNT players have not yet agreed to participate -- their salaries are paid by US Soccer and have not been impacted by the league's shutdown.

Baseball Struggles to Reach a Deal to Return

Life, as we all know, is never about "fair" especially in our dollar-driven capitalist society. The owners will end up having to pay enough that the players agree to show up but surely this is just an opening for negotiation and not what the owners ever expected to pay.

NBA May Play Rest of Season at Disney World

"Hey honey, Steven A Smith is on next. Wanna watch a cooking reality show with me?"

No ESPN talker makes me switch channels faster than this guy and his overreaching ego.

Hockey Is Not for Everyone

I hate this shit, that some people have to go through this. Sport is supposed to be about sport, there are so many platitudes about sport elevating people, bringing out the best in people, and so on, but then we get posts like this and I'm reminded that there is no part of life immune to such idiocy.

Judge sides with U.S. Soccer in USWNT's equal pay lawsuit. IANAL but the idea that this case was being heard by a 78 year old white male who dismissed the main claim without a jury trial is a bit problematic.

Beaverboard, I think the main factor behind signing Dalton is that Jerry Johnson needs an attractive young redhead in the vicinity.

Is there a fair way to finish domestic seasons? focuses on England but questions apply to all leagues.

I have never been on a commercial cruise ship and, god willing, I will never be on one! Prefer the hazmat kilt in yellow with red trim.

Bender, have you seen a peer-reviewed study on that? Because otherwise far too early to make a call on ghosts as hosts.
