  1. Adam "Pacman" Jones retires

    Word is that he is planning on becoming an amateur meteorologist. Isn't that what "making it rain" means?
  2. 2019 Off-Season Roster Building: Free Agency & Draft

    Meaning that our ILB's want to renegotiate their contracts (if he signs), so they can play a little further off the ball.
  3. The 2021 NFL Draft is Headed to Cleveland

    Oh, I do. Haven't watched an ESPN program for several years. A game once in a while, but that is it.
  4. The 2021 NFL Draft is Headed to Cleveland

    Well, you can't hear Mel Kiper, Jr. there....so there is that.
  5. The 2021 NFL Draft is Headed to Cleveland

    I live about 55 miles from downtown Cleveland. You may not be completely wrong on that. Heck. You're in Dayton. I'm in the shadows (almost literally) of Top Thrill Dragster and Milenium Force.
  6. The 2021 NFL Draft is Headed to Cleveland

    Baltimore Ravens, Washington Redskins, Indianapolis Colts, Chicago Bears, Cincinnati Bengals and Detroit Lions fans everywhere diving into their atlases and scratching their heads for the oversight. (OK, my AP Human Geography teacher at lunch time just jumped out for a minute.)
  7. OK....Big day today. Buckethead himself (hence the name) commissioned as an Ensign in the Navy this morning, and tomorrow, will graduate from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Buckethead's little sister (a HS senior) and her friend (who she is rooming with this year) made a 450 mile drive (on their own) to the school they are attending in the fall, in order to try out for the school's Flag Corps. 2nd biggest marching band in the country. (That was nerve wracking as hell, knowing she was traversing 4 states, basically on her own. Wife's cousin (retired Colonel, Army Cardiologist) read his oath of office, and my uncle (who has basically been his grandfather, as my dad died when he was 3), and a 1950's Air Force veteran, rendered his first salute. Suffice to say, I cannot recall a day where I've been more proud as a father.
  8. The Official 2019 NBA Draft Lottery Thread!!!

    Someone posted it in the Browns forum. 4 of the 5 bottom teams in the NBA are not picking in the top 5. Something kinda hinky about that. Not sure if that is good for the NBA.
  9. Cavaliers Thread: Embrace The Mediocrity

    Good for David Griffin.
  10. Cavaliers Thread: Embrace The Mediocrity

    OK, now I hope that David Griffin gets the #1 pick.
  11. Cavaliers Thread: Embrace The Mediocrity

    Patrick Ewing looked like..."Yep, we know that one of the top 4 is coming to NYC. Looked a bit smug to me.
  12. Cleveland Indians Thread : we might have a nice thing!

    Fair enough, but I am scouting the hell out of the Yankees (and probably a few others) farm system(s) this year, in anticipation for this.
  13. Cleveland Indians Thread : we might have a nice thing!

    Lindor has two years of arbitration after this year. Following with your line of thought, if this club continues to underperform, I would certainly be exploring what kind of a haul they could get for him at this year's trade deadline, or during this offseason.
  14. Cleveland Indians Thread : we might have a nice thing!

    I think we need to resign (lousy word here, but it is what fits) ourselves to the fact that Lindor is like a non-renewable energy source. Once he's gone (his contract is up), he is going somewhere that will give him 30+ million a year. That won't be us. That is why I posted a while back that if they decide that we're not getting it done right now, we get the top 3-4 prospects in a team's farm system now, rather than a draft pick in a few years. Load up for another run in a year or two, rather than continually spinning our wheels. I'm also for capitalizing on what we can get for Bauer at the moment. The ship might have just sailed on a return for Kluber, but this club, as constructed, isn't gonig to win a thing. I'd rather retool for two years from now, than fool myself into thinking the team has a snowball's chance in Hades, then having nothing to show for it when Bauer, Hand, Lindor, Ramirez, Kluber all leave.
  15. Cleveland Indians Thread : we might have a nice thing!

    Twins have thrashed us pretty well thus far as well.
