During the EDE, I'd  probably go with Luke Rodgers




#1363998 Some people want to debate politics and healthcare

Posted by RedBullScouse on 20 March 2020 - 11:12 AM

The elephant in the room that is going to become harder to ignore is that the virus just isn't that deadly, despite the government hysteria and doomsday predictions from those in academia that everyone seems to be accepting with any critical thinking.

When I say that I'm not in any way trying to trivialize those who have lost their lives because of coronavirus. May they rest in peace.

Yet the number of positive cases is far outpacing the number of deaths. Cuomo has single-handedly destroyed the economy in New York (the state that has the most cases) over a virus that currently has a .007% mortality rate there. And that rate is only going to drop as more people come back with positive tests but escape death.

I'm anticipating the national narrative to shift in the next two weeks to quarantining the elderly and those at risk and letting everyone go back to basically their normal lives. The severity just isn't there to continue shutting things down and running the country like this.

You are only doing half the math.   Yes, few of the people who get it die from it.  The problem is, so many people get it (when these guidelines aren't in place).   The thing spreads far more quickly than anything like it.   Its not as deadly as the flu, the flu doesn't spread very easily.   This spreads more quickly and easily than (insert reference to something that spreads very, very quickly and easily).

Undefeated!  Woo hoo!




#1363463 French left back Jason Pendant

Posted by RedBullScouse on 11 March 2020 - 01:25 PM

I can imagine him at his first home game, thinking "gee, what a shame with this virus, having to play in front of an empty stadium," and all the other players looking at each other like "are you gonna tell him?  I'm not gonna tell him..."




#1363427 The Allman brothers are dead

Posted by RedBullScouse on 11 March 2020 - 08:24 AM

"MSG also had a sold out Allman Brothers show so it seems people aren't really all that concerned still."

 

The Allman brothers are dead, so this is a lie. lol.

"The Brothers consists of founding ABB member drummer Jaimoe as well as longtime Allmans members guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks, bassist Oteil Burbridge and percussionist Marc Quinones with Widespread Panic drummer Duane Trucks and legendary keyboardist Reese Wynans. Former ABB keyboardist Chuck Leavell is listed as a special guest and is expected to play a few songs with The Brothers."

#1363251 2020 Depth Chart

Posted by RedBullScouse on 08 March 2020 - 10:46 AM

Valot has shown good distribution skills and vision i like him to start but i don't like how lax yhey ended the match and didn't contest on the wings.. They let them whip in crosses till finally one landed cleanly and eas hit cleanly

Conceding the wide areas is the plan with a triple deuce.   We need better aerial defenders if we are going to let the other team whip crosses in for 90 minutes.




#1363039 Marketing strategy - everyone's favorite topic

Posted by RedBullScouse on 05 March 2020 - 07:23 PM

I am not questioning or agreeing with the validity of people's complaints about Harrison/Bridgeview.  I am just saying that many of the complaints people have made about Harrison are similar to those made about Bridgeview.  

 

What is true is that Bridgeview and Harrison are both convenient to the people who live nearby, which is not an insignificant amount of people in giant cities like New York and Chicago. 

Bridgeview is not convenient for anyone

Gotta be Buckmaster on a 50 yard solo run juking multiple defenders

This didn't age well




#1362585 Davis named captain

Posted by RedBullScouse on 29 February 2020 - 03:38 PM

Connor Lade played almost the same amount as Davis did over the two Shield seasons. That stat doesn't mean anything about how good a player is.

 

In 2015, he was a rookie working his way onto the team.  In 2018, Connor played half the minutes of Davis, and only out of necessity.  I don't care how good the guy next to you is, you don't have the third most minutes on a record setting team if you suck.   




#1362584 Metro - Cincy Game Thread

Posted by RedBullScouse on 29 February 2020 - 03:29 PM

Apparently Muyl has been training as one of the dual 10s.

While so many had him slotted to go the other direction.  With Duncan maybe in the Olympics, and Buckmeister gone,  who would be behind Egbo on the depth chart at RB?   Now he (and his notoriously poor finishing) is behind/fighting with Royer, Bwhite, Barlow and Matty Ice up top?




#1362413 Media Day 2020

This is the day that gets me excited at the start of each season.

 

Hamlett out.




#1362387 Davis named captain

Posted by RedBullScouse on 27 February 2020 - 02:22 PM

I've gone on record saying he is our Jordan Henderson, and this just reinforces that.   He's too atheltic, smart, dedicated and hard working not to be a big part of whatever success we can have with this roster.     Let's hope the Jordan Henerdson comparison plays out a fraction as well as its played out for Liverpool.




#1362285 "There is no Offseason" 2020 Thread

Posted by RedBullScouse on 26 February 2020 - 01:45 PM

This really blows my mind. 

 

It's like being a fan of the Oakland A's.  What an awful offseason.  Screw Hamlett for the things he said because clearly they were bullshit.  Signing nobody was probably due to incompetence, but either way it's just not good enough.

 

Marsch made something work because he had guys willing to walk through fire.  Maintaining that motivation is rare and Armas will prove that further.

 

 

On a different note, with how much Armas has talked about everyone not buying in, you really have to wonder if Robles was a part of that.  Murillo clearly had an attitude problem so he's an obvious one.  Can even buy into Taxi.  But to go out of your way to get rid of Robles for no reason at all, it really makes you wonder how they weren't happy with him.  Nothing else makes sense in his case.  WIth BWP, it was form.  He was older and we all knew it was coming but with Robles, he was still pretty good.

There's no way Robles was a problem.  Whether you agree or not, Robles was making a lot of money and is about to turn 36.  We all know 36 isn't especially old for a keeper, but 36 is 106 in Red Bull years.

#1361942 Some people think the 2017 Open Cup run was lucky

Posted by RedBullScouse on 21 February 2020 - 07:34 AM

You can take something serious AND be lucky.

Almost every single-elimination tournament winner had some luck along the way.  Its the nature of the beast.
