It is bizarre that the NFL wants nothing to do with Ray Rice now, because of the video evidence, but this guy gets a break.

if there were a video of Hill, he would have never come within a mile of the NFL. even West Alabama might not have taken him.

There's also the fact that Rice a) was nearing washed up status and b) never really seemed to show true regret or remorse for his actions.

I don't like it that the Chiefs drafted him, but at the same time there's a lot of other despicable people playing and working in the NFL. If the kid truly regrets doing it and is trying to better himself I don't have a problem with him getting a second chance, I just wish it wasn't with the team I cheer for.

Glad we won, but this lack of aggression with a lead is going to piss me off

Joda's Fighting Welsh Swan Army is dicking on Liverpool this morning.

The end of this season has been rather depressing, but that was enjoyable.

The Chiefs where never going to draft Lynch. They might have been trying to move up, but it would probably have been for a CB or WR. Lynch was always a smokescreen or a last option if everyone else they wanted was gone. I'm guessing Denver thought they needed to move up not because of the Chiefs drafting there, but if Lynch fell to that spot teams like Dallas, Cleveland, maybe even SF would be bidding for the Chiefs pick. Denver moving up made sure they got their guy, but also devalued the Chiefs pick in a trade down. However, they also had to give up their own 3rd to do it, which in this draft has the potential to be a player who contributes faster than Lynch.

Don't mind the trade out at all. Seems like there where a bunch of players left that would be solid picks at that point. Drop down a few spots and grab 2 more later picks, then still get a decent player.

Ok, nervous poops have finally subsided, so time to focus on round 2. This is pretty much uncharted territory for the Blues. The last time the Blues won a 2nd round game was 2002.

As for the actual matchup, this is an interesting one. Definitely a strength vs strength and weakness vs weakness matchup. Obviously biased but I feel like the Blues have far superior depth than Dallas and that could be the difference in the series, especially with Dallas not 100% healthy.

That being said, holy crap I may be nervous pooping for a month.

Blues even tried to Blues-up the GWG

Just saw this on another forum. Tarasenko's average TOI for this series (remember there's been an OT and a 2OT game) is 17:27. That's ridiculously low for a guy that has been arguably the most dangerous player on the ice for either team. Brouwer has played decent, but he's averaging nearly 3 1/2 more minutes a game.

 :bang:

2nd game in a row the Blues forgot there's a 2nd period

15
He's not in Manhattan yet and I've claimed him in other threads, but just to make it official I'm taking Nick Lenners.

I'm fairly certain this has been b talked about before, but I'm bored right now so I'm going to brainstorm a bit. Say we expand to 12 with someone like UConn and some other only moderately gross school farther east (we'll go ahead and use Cincy for this exercise). A "North" Division of 'cats, 'hawks, 'clones, 'eers, 'skies, and 'kats seems pretty woof and I feel like there's a pretty good chance we'd have quite a few years where barely play in Texas at all.

So what's everyone's thoughts on 3 team pods? For example:

East- WVU, Cincy, UConn
North- KSU, KU, ISU
Central- OU, OSU, TCU
South- UT, Baylor, TTU

Each team plays the other two from their pod every year, plus a home and away out of each of the other pods. The only major rivalry that gets broken up is the RRR(and the CTR but since Texas doesn't really to acknowledge it...). So to fix that maybe set one team from each pod and rotate the other two? So Texas every year plays OU, KSU, and ____ and every two years switches between OSU/TCU, KU/ISU, and ___/___.

I'd be excited about heading back to the United Center, if not for the games last week.  I think the Blues will take game 6. They have been much more physical, and the Blackhawks have looked worn down for a month or more.

That's how I feel, but I'm not going to be sure of anything until that clock hits zero on StL's fourth win. It sure seemed to me that the Blues where pretty dominant for long stretches of the game last night, they just played way too passive in the 2nd and by 2OT it was just a war of attrition.

Joda, maybe it was just the Chicago affiliate announcers but did you hear their bit complaining about the 8:42 start time? Pretty dumb way to attract interest in the sport having games ending at 11:30 or later on a weekday.

NBC being excessively cheap and using the Chicago and San Jose CSN broadcast teams is reason enough to cheer against those teams.

I actually don't mind the pbp guy from Chicago's broadcast as long as Eddie doesn't speak.

19
I'm somewhat ok with UConn. They're not as gross as most of the other non-P5 schools so if we have to add I guess they'd be high on my list.

20
That said, great game. I thought both teams might be unable to walk after the first couple periods' physicality, forget about 2 OT

Kane, as much as I hate the guy, found that last bit of energy and made a phenomenal play. You could tell both teams where dead on their feet and there was no way anyone else was stopping those moves. I know I've seen a few people raging on the Blues D of that play, but if no one was stopping that in 2OT. Elliott should have just dropped his stick and I think he makes it over in time to stop that, but I don't really blame him either.

Normally, considering the Blues recent history, I'd feel like this would have done them in but there's something different about this team. I actually think losing in that manner may fire them up even more for game 6

Yea, NBC cut to commercial in the middle of it, but I heard most of it. And I agree, I think the two things all Blues and Blackhawks fans can agree on is that the officials have been pretty bad this series (I thought last nights game was probably the best of the series because they at least where consistent on letting them play) and that the late start time for a series in the CTZ is absolutely ridiculous.

23
2OT, I don't think we have enough emoticons to express what I'm feeling.

24
I probably should've been live tweeting my feelings during this series. It's been a roller coaster you guys.

25
Give up a goal with .4 left in the second to go to the intermission down 2, then tie it up and force OT? No way the last few year's Blues teams do that.
