#1365180 The Coronavirus Thread

Posted by RiverEnergyDrink on 14 May 2020 - 02:57 PM

I truly do not understand why you would go out of your way to get all the teams down there and have it be a tournament that doesnt count for anything.  Just let it be regular season games.  I understand that they are still holding out for games at the actual stadiums but those will most likely be behind closed doors anyways.

That IMHE model has turned out to be inaccurate garbage though. On Monday this week they were claiming the peak would be April 16 for New Jersey, now at this moment they are saying April 11. It's state death figures also keep getting revised downward as officials are coming out on a daily basis reporting lower body counts than what that model has been estimating for its means.

Last weekend it said 93k deaths in the US, then on Sunday it dropped to 82k, then it dropped to 60k on Wednesday. I'm very happy the number has fallen that much but it's proving the model is just a hot mess. You really can't rely upon it for anything, other than an example of how off some of these doom and gloom estimates can be.

I don't think it was garbage.  The model just gets more accurate with the more data it gets.  In the beginning of the pandemic, you were looking at a wider range of possibilities.  Now with more data, you are getting a more narrow and precise prediction.

Happy for Lawrence to finally get his shot in Europe.  However, I think he could do better than Anderlecht, who are mid table and not likely to be in champions league or even Europa league next year.  Would have been cool to see the guy in the Premier League.

Was just cleaning things out and found my 2008 Western Conference Champions scarf. Biggest trophy ever.

I still wear that one to most games.  That's definitely my favorite scarf.

Last year they had the big break in the middle of the playoffs -- Long played in a meaningless friendly before Atlanta.

And Sarachan started Adams both games and played him the full 90 (i think)

Went to the game on Saturday and the game today.  I am very excited for the upcoming 18 days of not having to watch this garbage.

Why does the league take so long with this stuff? It's silly.

I've been thinking the same thing.  The NHL moves a lot quicker with this stuff, but I guess they have to since there is less time between games. 


Other soccer leagues would be a better comparison.  For example, Diego Costa cursed out the ref in la liga vs Barca on April 6th.  He received an 8 game ban on April 11th.  We would have to hear a response by tomorrow to match that time span.

Hopefully, the Tarek-Nealis CB duo can live up to the high standards of the Ruthven-Keel duo when it comes to makeshift backlines.

Do you guys think we can go with the first choice lineup next Tuesday and then again on Saturday vs San Jose?  Part of me thinks that we should rotate a few guys in for the game at Santos but I don't think we will.  On the other hand, 4 days in between games isn't the end of the world...

Well, I don't think we would have beaten Tigres anyways in the next round.

So happy I'll be at the game next week instead of trying to watch it on this dog shit website and app. Both sucked for me for the majority of the game and absolutely ruined the experience. It's not like I don't know how to use a computer or app either and my wifi wasn't the problem. This was all on yahoo sports.

Really happy with the win but this really was frustrating and shouldn't have been that difficult to watch the damn game. I don't know how any casual fans would even have the patience for this bs when I was getting ready to give up and just listen to the commentary instead.

The game was only at a watchable quality for a few minutes at a time for me.  I had it on my laptop and put it on my tv with a hdmi cable.  I don't see myself watching games on this service when the red bulls aren't playing.  

#1339781 Club America wants Kaku

Posted by RiverEnergyDrink on 27 January 2019 - 05:03 PM

It's RB being a ball ache with the fee. Want 2x what he's worth. Ame isn't paying 12.

Why should we take a loss and sell for 6 million?  We shouldn't even be selling for a price that has us break even considering the 20% that Huracan will get. 


I'd be completely disappointed in our organization if they didn't sell for a profit. 

#1339280 Club America wants Kaku

Posted by RiverEnergyDrink on 19 January 2019 - 03:37 PM

He can fuck off to Mexico for all I care. The guy is the reverse Veron. Veron did nothing at the start of the season and then showed up in the bigger games at the end of the 2017 and in open cup and Kaku showed up early on last season and completely disappeared in the later months and even more so in the playoffs.

We can do better than both of them if the team really wanted to go out there and get someone.

I dont really think we can find a replacement of Kaku's caliber with short notice.  I think the best case scenario for us would be to at least keep him for 2019 and sell him after.

Away to Cincy on Memorial day weekend.  That's a good away trip, too.
