  1. Chargers Hunter Henry tore ACL

    Congrats to those that had May 23 in the pool as the day for the Chargers first significant injury for the new year. Terrible news. I figured with Gates gone he was going to have a really good year. Best of luck in his recovery.
  2. Gambling could renew push for 18-game season

    I hope not.

    Easily handling Tampa without Backstrom. That's pretty impressive.

    Nice tribute for Cutch on his return to Pittsburgh.

    Heck of a run. They just simply ran out of gas.

    Congrats to the Caps and their fans. Best of luck in the ECF. The Pens simply ran out of gas. No one bothered to show up in the series but Sid and Jake. Heck of a two year run. Now I can just sit and relax watching the postseason. Hoping every game goes into OT

    I'll be so happy when Lesnar leaves. I'm tired of a champion that shows up once every two months if that. I just want him gone. And honestly my emotions about Reigns? I don't have any anymore. I'm just numb to him. I've grown so much apathy towards him that I don't care what he does. Reigns could have been an outstanding heel that everyone dislikes and then when he would eventually turn he would have been huge with the fans. They completely ruined it. I saw a video of someone tweeted where people were actually leaving during the main event last night. We all knew how it was going to be booked.

    Oh yeah I'm not giving up at all. It would be nice if some of the other guy's can pick up the slack like Rust, Brassard, Sheary, Sheahan, etc. Jake and Sid have been carrying this team so far in this round. I'm definitely a Murray guy but he hasn't been good as we've seen him in previous post seasons. Backstrom might not play and they need to take a advantage of that. Still annoyed by the last game and the self inflicted wounds but that's over with. Go get this win at home.
  9. Build a Quarterback Challenge

    Finding a spot for Brady was the most difficult because he easily be on so many of those.

    I would love to know what the hell Letang was thinking in that third period. He was the Caps best player. So frustrating watching him make these mental errors. For the most part I liked how the team played. However, a stupid penalty by Simon in the first opened the door for the Caps. You can't continue to give these guys opportunities like that. They will make you pay.

    The Pens tie the series at two games a piece beating the usual dirty Capitals. JuJu and Shazier were both at the game cheering for the Pens.

    The NHL never has reviewed penalties during a game so the refs didn't "call in for a replay review". No idea where you got that from. Marchand got a five game suspension for elbowing earlier in the year yet didn't get a penalty on the play. You're acting like this only happened to the Penguins. It doesn't. So you're blaming Sullivan for telling the truth about ZAR? The audacity of him! He confirmed the injury? Diabolical! You literally write he didn't say the usual "cryptic nonsense that everyone else does" yet criticize him for giving out the information of his injury. That makes a ton of sense. I'm sure the NHL wouldn't have investigated if he didn't say about his injury right? You act like there is some unwritten rule that was violated. The league's video went through why there was a suspension. Congrats to Wilson for getting his third suspension in a season. First time that has happened since the DoPS started. Also you should really be embarrassed two days later thinking that Crosby spit on that video. Ovie grabbed the back of his collar which led to his head moving forward and back. The Caps player didn't do anything and he would have if he was actually spit on. The ref was right there too. You honestly believe if that did happen that it wouldn't be what everyone is talking about? Here's the little video of the "spit", er, non spit. If you can see the spit then you probably send this video straight to Bettman! But since he loves the Penguins he won't do anything about it. Speaking of whistles the Caps and Pens went into the game tonight with the exact same amount of power play opportunities during the postseason. So do refs favor the Caps the same way then? If the Pens did everything the league asked them to then Wilson would have gotten suspended for the hit against Dumolin. Niskanen would have gotten suspended for the cross check to Crosby last year and the Game 3 goal would have counted while Wilson would have gotten penalty on the GW goal. The narrative is always the same and it won't change no matter how many examples I can give.

    I can't wait until they pick #32 for next year's draft.
