I dont know how this 23 can be criticized much.

I agree on Chandler and I am not fond of Wondo being on the list. He performs in league play but international play isnt strong.

I think the question now becomes 4-3-3 or 4-4-2.Pulisic's creativity and skill in a top flight league should put him in the starting 11 but I'm not confident he'll be there to start the tournament.

I love how the Men in Blazers rant about him all the time. When he slides on the pitch after a goal they comment how he's impregnated the pitch.

What message does he need to send? He got plunked in the side because of the bat flip from last year. In a typical scenario, after that plunk the fight is over. Take your lumps and say "yeah, well I still sent you home w/ that HR".

Instead Bautista acts like a bitch with a super late and super aggressive slide and then he gets up and flexes on Odor. What do you expect at that point? Once you slide late, nothing after that is a cheap shot... but then he flexed as if he was going to start it.

Odor was just smarter and quicker and that was one hell of a punch.

If you're starting a boxing team out of current or former MLB players who's your first round pick, Odor or Nolan Ryan?

I heard an oddsmaker say that Mayweather would be a 1-100 favorite for the starting line.

How about that for an LOL?

That being said, if Connor McGregor can negotiate a deal where he gets 1/3 of the purse of a Mayweather fight it would easily dwarf any payday he will ever receive from UFC. Smart businessman.

This is sometimes what I hate about message boards. There's inevitably some douche that wants to be the first to post something as a "look at me" and as a result really shitty rumors start to fly for no reason.

That's what happened with the Bosa thing. Someone wanted to be first and then everyone else starts piling on and speculating without any substantiated evidence anywhere else on the internet.

This to me is part of the problem with cable companies and broadcasters. For years they've fought tooth and nail, through lobbying efforts in Washington, against allowing a la carte options for consumers. And they've done so successfully.

Now you have netflix, hulu, amazon prime, and hbo now that combined could provide you with most of your programming for $45 per month as opposed to the $125 I'm paying. Additionally, the networks put their programs on their respective websites for free typically 24 hours after airing them.

So, the fighting in Washington partially created the situation that we have today where traditional cable companies and networks are losing money because of the online models.

Unfortunately, I'm an avid sports watcher so I dont see being able to cut the cord but I'm sure my wife wouldnt mind.

I dont really see the difference in a tax break given to oil companies in the event they drill a dry well versus an emissions credit given to Tesla that they can then sell to entities that need the credits.

Either way, the taxpayer is footing the bill you're just calling it something different.

Comment 04 Apr 2016

We've been subsidizing oil and natural gas for nearly 100 years at an average of $5B per year. The taxpayer has always foot the bill but for some reason people have a problem when the assistance goes toward renewable sources.

[MOD EDIT:

Avoid Politics, Religion & Hot-Button Social Issues

Sorry, we just don't want any of that stuff around here and discussing one of those topics is the quickest way to earn the banhammer.

Nobody cares about your hot takes on these issues and there are plenty of other places on the internet for you to talk about politics, religion, gun control, immigration, abortion, etc.]

Comment 04 Apr 2016

What I find interesting is that some of the most [mod edit-no politics]

Count me as one that is OK with the gov subsidies going to Tesla who is producing a technology that will make our nation less reliant on foreign oil and with the growth of solar and wind technologies more integrated into renewable energy sources.

Proof of concept. Don't many startups operate at a loss during their proof of concept phase?

Comment 01 Apr 2016

The Model S was the proof of concept and improving the technology. They have done both of those things exceptionally. The Model 3 is where the bread is going to be buttered.
