People, throwing out brands doesn't help here. Different sets within the same brand have different panels. For example, Vizio or LG may have the best panel at his price range. Even though Samsung has better top-end panels, that doesn't mean anything because those panels are not in $1,500 tvs. That's like saying he should buy a Nissan Altima instead of a Honda Civic because a Nissan GTR is faster than the new NSX. You have to compare models within a range.

No, not really. Nobody's going to put their best panel in a set with no features.

This is the best comment thus far. Listen to the man with the Kuro. Until a few years ago, the obvious choice was a Panasonic plasma. Now that they're extinct (because it isn't economical to manufacture plasma at 4k resolution) you're basically picking whichever LCD panel is the best for your budget. All panels are not created equal, you must head to the tech forums. A good benchmark that fits your budget is the Vizio M series. Most of the top tier panels at 60 inches will cost a lot more than 1,500. Not sure you can beat the M series at that price for a 4k panel.

The reality in football is anything can happen, let's hope it doesn't...goes for every player. Some guys seem to be more durable than others but a lot of that is just probability. Braxton had the most touches and carries. Then JT did and he also got hurt.

I know, if things are a continuation and not a reset as I'm hoping, this team is going to be setting some records

Comment 23 Aug 2015

I think I'm realizing that the team didn't play to their potential until the last 3 games of the year. Of course we all realized this during the season. I'm hoping this year picks up from the end of the year, and doesn't have as many struggles to play well.

I have a problem with fans who make other fan bases hate us...disrespectful during away games, throwing things, starting fights, harassing other fans at tailgates or games. I don't care if they are alumni or not - I'm embarrassed by them and don't want to be associated with them. I don't think the line is whether you attended OSU or not, I think it's whether you're a normal human or not.

So by that logic only a heavyweight should be considered as the most dominant MMA fighter, since they could beat everyone else. I get your point that RR isn't the best fighter because she isn't capable of beating TJ Dillashaw, but that completely ignores the concept of weight classes and disregards RRs skill level, which is very high. Roy Nelson would kill Anderson Silva in a fight...that doesn't mean he's a better or more dominant fighter.

Because comparing men to women in sports would be like comparing a top non-champion heavyweight boxer to Mayweather. Because the HW would easily beat Floyd, does that mean the HW is a superior boxer? Or does it mean he has a huge physical advantage, such as a male 135er would have against Ronda.

People are naming Usain Bolt, and he dopes (allegedly) so I'd have no problem with it. He was still the most dominant cyclist any of us have ever seen, unless there are some very old guys on this forum.

Are you saying there are thousands of other women who could beat her up? I wouldn't agree with that. I'm not sure how you can say she's nowhere near one of the best MMA fighters, unless you're comparing her to men? Which would be...strange. Or are you making the point that there are thousands of women who, if trained, could be better? Also a strange point but possibly valid, although we'll never know.

Not to rain on your parade, but this video is from the early days of the internet, at least 10 years old.

Sure.  Bob Kraft gave a long speech about how he expects an apology if they can't prove they cheated at the end of this investigation.

Then Bill went on, 3 reporters in a row asked about deflation, and to each he responded that he was focused on Seattle only.  Then the conference was over.

What a great season. Unbelievable actually. If I were a movie studio looking for scripts, I would've sent this season's story back for re-writing and told them to make it a little bit more realistic.

Seventeen is kind of an awkward rhyme, so how about we just go with "Consensus #1 recruiting class in the country"

Comment 25 Jan 2015

I'm wondering the same - I remember when someone got in trouble with the NFL this year after drinking while on suspension for a DUI...I think it was a kicker?  But during the offseason, and not while serving punishment?

If you get a DUI are you never allowed to drink again while playing in the NFL? Someone shed some light on this?

As for my opinion...I don't know the rules but clearly Josh Gordon does.  So even if the rule is stupid, he's got no excuse for not following it.

I get that Buick is trying to break into a younger demographic.  But the way they're trying to do it is a bit strange to me. Like their commercials...one where a girl is trying to find her friend in a parking lot, and the friend texts her "I'm in the Buick!" and she jumps into the wrong car.  To me, the commercial is basically saying "you expect it to be an old POS when you hear Buick, but it's not anymore!"

I feel like that kind of tone degrades the current cars...which are actually pretty nice.  But maybe the fact that I can distinctly remember the commercial is all that matters?  This is why I'm not a marketing person.

I was there today and when the crowd was going nuts for Braxton and then started a "one more year!" chant he had a big smile on his face. Also JT and CJ along with the other guys on stage were cheering for him too as he was going to the podium. Cool moment
