is soccer basically the only sport on the planet where this is just accepted?

Photo suggests that he hid the phone in his sock, perhaps with a shield from metal detectors used at these tournaments.

The Yankees brand is already huge overseas ...
Euro tourists love that interlocking NY.

No love for the Mets interlocking NY.
Only people wearing/knowing it, are Mets fans.

the arena just feels like a concrete box. 

We are lucky to have RBA.
Hard to believe the small crowds.

#1348745 Room for improvement on our roster

Its not like the days when we could count on star-caliber bench talent like Ruthven and Keel to hold the fort under these kind of circumstances

Best laugh I had today!

Larentowicz was RCed after the game?
Should have seen red for the shove on RZA.

Stott ... could have called a foul every 30 seconds and been in the right.

I still think that the PK was a BS call.
Especially when Escobar should have seen a 2nd yellow.
If Stott is going to overlook that obvious sending-off,
he can overlook a flopping Martinez, even in ATL.

#1348540 2020 Season Ticket Renewals

Posted by JBigjake54 on 04 July 2019 - 01:58 PM

thats an awfully good reminder to quit and put that feedback in your exit interview. Eff that guy.

Here is where you and I differ.
We are all playing the same game: Work.
However, it is a judged, not a scored, sport.
There are style points and subjective measures.
Not that I was not always banging heads with bosses.
I just knew that ass-kissing was a large part of any bureaucracy where I worked.  And there were several.
My F-in-L told me that the best way to succeed was to Keep Your Boss Happy.  The best and brightest are not always the most promoted and rewarded.  I have seen this repeated time and again.
You do not have to like the game, or play it.
But do not deny that it exists, and is often the only game.

I once had a boss who literally made part of our bonus dependent on how well we rated him as a boss.

So, Best Boss Ever!

Thats not fair, they have a couple of Eredivisie starters.

We made them look like they played for Barca.

ticketmaster: scheduled kickoff for the 2nd match ... is 8p.

They just want us inside earlier, to purchase their overpriced concessions.

At least Boston lost in the Stanley Cup final.

#1347697 We need better backups

Posted by JBigjake54 on 11 June 2019 - 09:34 PM

Lade is fine if we play with 5 guys on D

Lade should get an assist on the third NE goal.

#1347573 We need better backups

Posted by JBigjake54 on 10 June 2019 - 04:31 PM

There was plenty of blame to be shared among the back four. The loss of Tarek hurt.  Insinho came on and ran around and through everyone.  Lade was beat, but so was Royer.  That goal was deflected past Robles by Nealis, and Parker made the whole play onside. Nealis conceded the PK, and no one covered Ilsinho on the rebound.
