  1. How should the Cowboys handle Zeke?

    Hope we get this done soon. I want Zeke to stay a Cowboy for all of his prime years. Contract figures above seem plenty fair to me.
  2. NFL network: Jaylon Smith new deal

    So happy for Jaylon that he got this deal. He has repaid our faith in him and then some. Looking forward to seeing him continue to dominate with LVE.
  3. Expectations for your team this year

    Feel Notre Dame is fairly ranked as we are a strong, well-rounded team, but not quite up to the level of a true elite team. Probably a top 10 team in the nation and am thinking probably ten wins this year. If we made the playoffs again, I would think we slightly overachieved. Road games against UGA and Michigan will show a lot about us.
  4. 2018/19 Bundesliga Season

    Yesterday was unfortunate. We were certainly the better side yesterday, but we did not create enough chances in the second half and we switched off twice in defense and paid for it. Would have lost if not for Lewa. Gnabry looked good on the right though. Can't wait to see Coutinho next game. And the sooner Kovac is out, the better. Not convinced of his man management or tactics one bit
  5. 2018/19 Bundesliga Season

    Sorry for the very late reply, but for following a team, I just recommend watching games and seeing if anything connects with you. I am someone who is proud of their German heritage and Bayern in addition to being a big club in Germany and Europe is also traditionally attractive to German NT players. Watching them only confirmed that I had a connection with them and have been a Bayern fan since 2007. Bundesliga games are on Fox (Fs1, Fs2 usually, but Fox will televise the occasional game) every weekend. Bayern games are almost always one of the games shown with Borussia Dortmund being the other German team on a lot. Bayern fans are generally excited about the additions on defense, but are still sorely lacking in attacking depth. Club legends Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben are no longer with the club after being lynchpins of the attack for the better part of a decade. Also, James Rodriguez went back to Real Madrid after his loan expired. Good news is that we obtained Coutinho on a one year loan yesterday, but I am still expecting a bit of a rough year by Bayern standards. I am hoping to get Leroy Sane from Man City as a star winger and next year get Kai Havertz from Leverkusen or keep Coutinho if he plays up to his talent level. We could also use a defensive presence in midfield to free up Thiago (our most creative middie) to go forward a little more.
  6. Transfers & Rumors: Deadline Drama!

    20M euro loan fee with 120M euro option to buy after this year. Barca certainly seems to have made out well on the deal, but we desperately needed attacking options and seeing Sane injure his ACL wrecked that transfer for the time being. If Coutinho shows out well this year and plays up to his talent level, 120M is a fair price for him. Of course, rumors are swirling that we have our eye on Kai Havertz for the #10 next year, so who knows at this point. Robert Lewandowski has got to be pleased with this.
  7. Prescott seeking $40m/yr

    Was not really comfortable paying him $30M per year. 40M is an easy no.
  8. Transfers & Rumors: Deadline Drama!

    Rumor is that Bayern's summer long pursuit of Man City winger and German national Leroy Sane is coming close to completion. Sane has reportedly agreed to join us on a 4 or 5 year deal and all that is left is to negotiate a price with City.
  9. Official New York Rangers Thread

    Shattenkirk contract bought out With our team in a cap crunch, a move like this needed to be made. That $6M cap hit next year is going to hurt a lot. IMO, that makes trading Kreider pretty much a formality. I will miss him if that is the case. Still a heck of an offseason between Trouba and Fox on D and Kakko and Panarin as Fs.
  10. How should the Cowboys handle Zeke?

    I would think if you spend a top t pick on a player, you generally plan on signing them to a second contract assuming they don't bust. Zeke has met or exceeded his lofty expectations. Rushing title 2 out of 3 years and the only year he did not, he missed 6 games via suspension and still broke 1000 yards if I'm not mistaken. Also is strong in pass pro and not a bad receiver out of the backfield. Given how our system is run, an all-around below like Zeke is huge for our offense. I consider him the best in the NFL and if not the best is very close. I understand we may have to make some tough financial decisions, but I would personally be upset if we let him go. If it were me, I would find a way to lock him up through the remainder of his prime years.
  11. Official 2018-2019 NHL Thread

    Feel like Shatty might be the odd man out in that situation. Though if he is healthy again, Fox would probably go to the AHL. Can't necessarily assume he is ready for the NHL right away until he shows it.
  12. Official New York Rangers Thread

    Trouba to Rangers for 1st (20th overall) and Pionk Gorton did brilliantly here. Got a young Dman capable of being a #1 type for a lower 1st rounder and a 3rd pairing Dman.
  13. Official 2018-2019 NHL Thread

    Awesome. #1 caliber Dman who is still young and can grow with our new core. Gorton did a fantastic job here.
  14. Transfers & Rumors: Deadline Drama!

    Hummels returning to Dortmund May be older and not in his prime anymore, but he is still a good starting CB. The only way this makes sense from Bayern's perspective is if we get someone strong to replace him. Otherwise, we simply degraded our defense.
  15. 2018/19 Europe Thread - It begins again

    Well, that was really quick.
