  2. Transfers & Rumors: Deadline Drama!

    @kempusYeah i was talking in euros. I don't have watched enough games of any of those players to compare their abilities with Sancho. Maybe Sane, but he's a different kind of player, that uses his speed to his advantage. In comparision Sancho is more technical than him. Overall I just know what he did for us in this season and what other players before him did for us in past seasons and i can fairly say that he is among and probably the most impressive young player we had on the team over the last decade. It's not only his scorer points that are impressive, it's his entire game. A lot of teams in the Bundesliga are playing defensively against us, which was often pretty tough for us. To a majority of time Reus and Sancho were the ones who were able to break those defenses and initializing an attack. Withouth their creativity it wouldn't have been possible for us to play that season. Dembele was also quite good, but he didn't had those attributes that make Sancho the difference maker he is. Dembele cost Barca 125 million euro overall. It's a crazy price obviously, but unfortunately that's how the market has developed. That's why i think 150 million euro might be the acceptance limit for Dortmund. Maybe i'm a bit too much of a homer here, but i can't see us getting anything lower than that. Again i don't know how Sterling, Silva, Sane, Mahrez or any other of the starting players of the top 6 PL clubs compares to Sancho. I also i can just guess, but i can't say for sure if the PL plays more of an offensive playing style than the Bundesliga helping the performances of the named players and it would be a stretch to think of how the overall quality of City/Liverpool f.ex. affects and helps these players in comparision to Sanchos gameplay in Dortmund, were he and Reus are the most important players for the offense. Take one out and it's going to be tough. Take both out and we're going to have a problem to remain the level of gameplay. I think it's tough to compare these players. Put one of them into the others situation and you can see a comparison. For now i can just compare Sanchos performance to other players we had in recent years and sold later (like Dembele) to get a feeling for a potential price tag. Since my conclusion would be that Sancho is a bit better than Dembele was, i would think that it needs more than 125 million euro to get him.
  3. That frontcourt would get killed defensively and I kinda have a hard time seeing Cousins being a positive player after all these injuries. Seems like a Mavs move though
  4. Trade rumors and free agency thread

    Because he is a wing that isn’t a great 3 point shooter. Yeah he had a good rookie year but he regressed this year and his numbers at duke show he is probably closer to a 35-36% 3PT shooter than a 43% he was as a rookie. Unless you can dominate down low like Giannis then you gotta have a better 3 ball in your game to be top 10. Then you want to use a SSS of 19 games from his rookie year but it wasn’t like those numbers jumped off the page. He went 18-4-2 on 47% shooting in the playoffs last year. This year it dropped to 15-6-2 on 43% shooting (once again a SSS). Just because he can iso a bit isn’t going to make him a top 10 player. Just because he is young doesn’t mean he will be a top 10 player either. There are too many other young stars that have looked better in the early part of their careers plus the guys that are still up there. Young guys [under 25] I’d take over Tatum right now (not in order): Doncic Trae DLo Booker Giannis Jokic Embiid Porzingas He is in range with JMurray Fox Bagley JJJ etc. and right now there are still guys like KD Kyrie Steph Harden PG Kawhi etc to compete with for a top 10 spot.
  5. Transfers & Rumors: Deadline Drama!

    According to the Mirror (believe at your own peril barring a few decent writers), Us and United are in for LW Sessegnon from Fulham (also some nonsense about us gazumping United). Fulham want $40M. He's got pretty good potential and has shown good things, however 40M for a player with 1 year left on his contract seems a little steep. Still he's the type of player I want Liverpool to target this summer.
  6. Tight End Statistical Projections

    Correlation coefficient is a measure of the relationship between two variables, and is a number between -1 and 1. If the correlation coefficient is -1, the variables have a perfect negative relationship (as one moves up, the other moves down) and a correlation of 1 is a perfect positive relationship. A correlation coefficient of 0 means there is no correlation, so the closer to 0, the weaker the correlation. 0.54 isn’t considered a terribly strong correlation, but it’s far and away better than -0.31 (negative because as draft pick increases from 1 to 256, AV decreases).
  7. I tried tagging others but it did not pull up.
  8. 2019 Free Agent Discussion

    Best thing anyone can do is learn that when someone disputes your opinion you don’t have to dispute their opinion.
  9. What do you guys think of a healthy Porzingis/Cousins frontcourt?
  10. What's crazy to me is that the Twins' payroll is less than it was last year. So the money is there if they want to make a legit offer to a free agent (Kimbrel/Keuchel) or trade for a pitcher with a high salary. Has Buxton turned a corner? He's about a .230 career hitter and seems to have notoriously slow starts at the plate, but if he truly is going to be .275-.280 hitter, that's going to be a huge boost to the lineup.
  11. Trade rumors and free agency thread

    Reasoning? Not saying you’re wrong but he’s 20 years old and certainly flashed that ability as a ROOKIE in the playoffs.
  12. Looks like we're back to lynching people for no apparent reasons
  13. 2020 Draft Prospects

    I reaaaalllly want CeeDee Lamb next year dude looks like he’s gonna be a star and his playing style looks like it fits what Gase likes to do
  14. MLB Regular Season 1.0

    i remember the days when @Mesa_Titanand @DalCowboyzRulesaid the astros wont be nothing when they move to the AL West. Ha! Good times
  15. @Danger, block me if you think I am mafia and want to deny me the night kill. I would completely understand that. If you think I am going to use the lynchproof power ... I don't know what to tell you at this point.
  16. Around The League V.2

    I really wanted him when he came out, he was basically the Nick Bosa of that draft. He didn’t have a hall of fame type career, but he was still good. Personally i think he should be remembered for his off the field work in Philadelphia when donated his game checks. Great guy 10/10 i wish he was a Raider.
  17. NCAA Recruiting Thread

    UH the best team in the conference until proven otherwise. Penny aint gonna walk through the conference like that especially once Cincy, Uconn, and Witchita St gets good again.
  18. Relative athletic score

    There’s definitely a difference between being a good football player and being athletic, but there’s definitely a minimum threshold of athleticism needed. This RAS is just a part of the equation.
  19. Chris Long retires

    Congratulations to Chris for a great career. Great player, even better person. Our DE depth scares me
  20. Looney might actually have a market this year w all the open money. Valuable role player
  21. Today
  22. Rank your favorite draft pick ...

    I'll say Stephen Denmark. His range of positive outcomes is so varied because of his athleticism and physicality. I'll be interested to see how the Bears develop him.
  23. he had like 7 sacks last year as a back up thats not bad. But we do have like 3 young guys the team likes in Sweat, Hall and Shareef. They need to give them playing time.
  24. Pick 51 Titans Select AJ Brown

    those sunglasses are objectively amazing
  25. Lions Select TE T.J. Hockenson #8 Overall

    Stafford has improved his touch over the years but when he’s excited he sometimes simply lets a rocket go. His touch and habit of totally misjudging dump offs and swing passes are my two biggest complaints with his play. I would much rather see Stafford throwing 20+ yards than less than 10.
  26. I changed my mind... BCB
