Back when Tressel was head coach I started reading the transcript of his press conferences on Tuesday. Soon after I realized that "Gameday" was basically reporting what was in that transcript. So when that got added to my distaste for some of the personalities there it became easy to stop watching the show.

So this wasn't even a "new" media bringing down the "old" media. I had access to the same information both of the medias had because of the internet. It created a big change in perspective.

Not meaning to run down 11W but is that necessarily to the credit of those other sites? That seems to me a sign of the cutbacks on staff and shortcuts resulting from such that cause media outlets to report stories they haven't made any verification of themselves. Those types of things may reflect well on 11W but to me they reflect poorly on the other outlets. Their job isn't to report the story 11W reported but to verify that story themselves.

They rush to break the story with barely a clue to the facts. This has caused the "old media" to follow suit. It has to a degree become more important to be "first" than to have your facts straight. I read so many stories that are "Some other media outlet reports..." and not "our reporter learned from talking to _____."

Rousey will not be the first fight of the main card so being there at 7pm is not required unless you want to see all the fights.

Here is a schedule from Fox:

Looks like the pay-per-view portion doesn't start till 10pm and there are seven fights on the card. I'd be shocked if either the Shogun or Rousey fight started before midnight.

I did not know that. That is very interesting. I watched many of Germany's games in the World Cup last year and I thought they were amazing. Should be interesting to see some of those matches.

Well, it was already the worst kept secret in TV. They should have left it hanging whether he gets stabbed. Then at the start of the episode, they could stab him and leave him in the snow while they cut to Mereen or King's Landing or Braavos or wherever.

Anyway, here's a Sophie Turner (Sansa) gif.

Yep. That whole Barclay's Premier League being on NBC Sports Network has really grabbed my interest. It was a bit of a revelation watching it.

Comment 27 Jul 2015

That's what I was looking for. Obviously, the team wants to make this tourney. Does it hurt them in trying to make the next World Cup if they don't? (Other than the whole not playing part.)

Do they have any chance against Mexico? Mexico put a beat down on Jamaica but not sure how much of that was Jamaica not being impressive (all those yellow cards getting handed out suggested they aren't) and how much was "Mexico is impressive."

This doesn't strike me as try hard. Let's for a second set aside the normal rush to beat a man up for wanting to meet girls and get laid. Given the loaded gun any female has these days with regards a famous athlete (and having seen "Gone Girl") this isn't a bad way to go about meeting women. Especially if he's actually not just looking for a hookup but a woman who would make a good wife.

They have to RSVP via so form of social media so he can screen them for any number of things.

He then has an internet record of what he's told these women to cover his backside.

He will undoubtedly get a large number of replies so he can fill the event with enough witnesses and staff to avoid "he said/she said" situations to some degree.

And if like you he is bad with women this might create a situation where he can mitigate that to some degree. Being a millionaire doesn't make you good with women. Being bad with women and a millionaire is more or less making yourself a target for the worst sorts of women.

Anyone wanting to beat this guy up over this is man-bashing in my opinion.

Who it benefits most is the guys who were behind Braxton. Braxton would be taking Collier or Gibson's reps when his arm isn't going to be in shape to be the every down starter. We might not be talking a series or a down here and there. The third string guy has to be ready to be THE GUY and Braxton can't be that guy or he wouldn't be looking to change positions.

Well, I guess we now know where Brax's shoulder recovery is. Everything always came back to that didn't it?
