Random Thoughts

Recommended Posts

I don't want to be perceived as calling anyone out, but shouldn't we have one? Isn't creating and sticky-ing said thread the purview of the forum's moderator?

Now that the old forum is closed and we've all migrated over to this (much better!) forum here, maybe creating one would be a good idea....?

Look like you just did.  No need for elliot to do all the work.   Trust me he doesn't get paid enough.  :D

Also, no need for a sticky (called pins on this forum).  I'm telling mods to go easy on the pinned topics.  They just clog up the forum and get ignored.  Plus it makes the forum look stale if there aren't a lot of posts in them.  @elliot878 you can even drop the rules pin too.  Consider a welcome topic pinned instead.  It can contain a link to the rules, links to this random topic, intro topic and whatever information you think your community needs.   Keep it updated and fun.   Here's a Welcome topic @iPwn did in the Jags forum.   

On that note, the other thing the Jags forum is doing a great job of is getting active.  Starting new topics, using the new features like 'follow' and 'likes' and really having a lot of fun.  The activity is picking up in here too, but make sure you guys are creating new topics and using the new features.   Don't lump everything into one topic.  If a rookie is standing out in training camp, start a new topic.   Don't just bury the lead in page 25 of the 'Training Camp topic'.

I'm not wild about not having a sticky-ed Random Thoughts thread but I guess that's the way that goes. 

Anyway. I was out at the bar tonight and this guy asks, "I know you're a Broncos fan but would you vote for Tom Brady for the Hall of Fame?"

That eclipse was awfully cool. I have a number of friends who went up to Wyoming to see the totality but I was stuck in the 95.33% zone. Still super cool. I kept blinking thinking because it how dim it got.

After another failed drug test for what they're saying is steroids, Jon Jones should be banned from the UFC entirely.  Sadly, he's probably the most talented fighter in the history of the UFC and doesn't need PEDs to accomplish what he has.  But, he clearly doesn't get it and can't follow the rules.  Being in the education system this is part of the problem with society.  Excuses and 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th chances for everything.  There just isn't any real consequences anymore.

I've also been reading comments on the Kyrie Irving trade and most think it was a terrible move by the Cavs.  I'm on the opposite side of that.  Not that it was a huge win, but I thought it was a pretty solid deal for Cleveland.

They'd be dumb to sign Thomas to the contract he is looking for, but he isn't much of a drop off from Irving.  Crowder is a prototypical 3 and D player which is a major upgrade for Cleveland and they acquired a likely top 3 pick in the process.

Cleveland is better this year with that trade giving Lebron another shot at not only winning the East but winning another Championship.  Lebron is gone next year, we all know that, but Cleveland also picked up a likely top 3 pick in a loaded class to help with the rebuild.

I love Ainge and Stevens and it was a good trade for them as well, but Cleveland was screwed before this trade and was able to at least give themselves a better chance than I thought they'd get.

Where have you seen it as terrible? The bball forum loves this..

champ alluded to this in that thread. PG aren't getting paid top doller compared to the other positions. I think cavs can get him less than max. Right or not but he can be had for that.

cleveland got bailed out. I see no point for Boston doing this. My opinion doe.

No I agree with you.  I read it on the ESPN comments when I was reading he was traded.

Casual fans overrate Kyrie, when in reality IT was just as good if not better than him last season.

I think it makes sense for both sides, but Cleveland getting this deal is a huge win. Definitely the best they could have done. It's kind of a head scratcher for Boston to finally give up a BKN pick when they wouldn't do it for Jimmy Butler, but I understand getting Kyrie. They just have so many damn assets due to that damn Russian billionaire

I don't know how you do it man. I avoid all comment sections on local news, youtube, espn, FB and popular IG follows.

Anyone else ever randomly think about how close Champ Bailey was to being part of the no fly zone? Could you imagine that?! Just missed it by a few years. Bailey, Harris, Talib and Roby. No one would have completed anything. Ever.

I know he will get in eventually but first Jerry Jones now Bobby Betheard over Pat Bowlen for HoF consideration?  Man.   Beathard impact not even close to Bowlen and he was plain awful in his last 5-6 years in SD.

Yeah this is just sad and not right. You would also think his current medical condition would sway the veterans committee.
