Training camp starts this week. Thoughts?

This guy is a tool.

“I think next, we should have monkeys as referees in the preseason just as an experiment.”

When Adam Silver talked about putting advertisements on jerseys last year, I was wondering what was up with this ass clown. Now, I truly believe that Silver is just as much as an idiot as David Stern is.

In a report by various sources, including the Tribune, Silver said he has considered adding a “mid-season tournament”. Right, like the 82-game season and playoffs that last two months with many days off between games isn’t enough basketball.

There is a thing called saturation meaning too much of something could be a bad thing. You saw it with the another idiotic commissioner in Roger Goodell wanting to add football games nearly every night and extending the season by two games. Fuck that guy too.

In addition, the rich just keep getting richer and in all sports too. First, the NFL continues to be asinine by starting to put playoff games on cable. Two games of the Stanley Cup Final have always been on cable in the United States. And now, Silver wants to negotiate a new TV deal two years before the current one is up. With that, they are discussing to split up the NBA Finals between ABC and TNT.

They say it’s because they are “contending with a changing landscape with TV vs. internet”. In reality, these fuckers are so damn greedy, they’ll do anything for a few extra bucks.

Note to Adam Silver and every other commissioner: Go drink battery acid.

“Like meth, only more addictive.”

As I am sure most of you WRASSLIN’ fans are aware of, WWE Network is free without any strings for this week. I would have to say that this is a good move on Vince McMahon’s part because all you need is an email address and to see what the Network is all about.

In the first two days of this free stream, I haven’t done much at work.

This thing is pretty cool. I fear though, like the person who quoted it as more addictive than meth, that if I were to subscribe for the six months, I would literally get nothing done at work. My lawn would never get mowed. My dishes would never be washed. I would turn on my laptop or Playstation 4 and just watch it all day. That’s how it is. It’s not just the free pay-per-views or the throwback shows that they have during the afternoon. The original programming is pretty good as well with the Countdown and WrestleMania Rewinds. There are real-life documentaries and stories that the wrestlers tell (It’s steal real to me damnit!).

And for you old folks out there, WWE Network has started adding the special events at Madison Square Garden and Nassau Coliseum in the 1980’s. In addition, quite a few epsidoes from Saturday Night’s Main Event in the 1980’s are on here too. And don’t forget probably one of the best matches from that decade with Savage vs. Steamboat at Wrestlemania. The last event that I really enjoyed was Summerslam 1994 which was the first event held at the United Center. Walter Payton and his son were in Scott Hall’s corner as he won the Intercontinental Championship against Diesel.

It’s absolutely worth the $10 a month. With the streaming sites that I currently use, the pay-per-views aren’t in the best quality when streaming and only the original shows are on-demand. Yes, it’s still free for that but the Network has, of course, way more content. I think it’s really neat to see myself at 15 years old cheering on Hulk Hogan as he made his return with the nWo in Rockford on an old episode of Smackdown! compared to the streaming site where I can barely see myself because of the quality.

So if you get it, consider yourself warned. You will be hooked.

Gee whiz, my team stinks.

 

After 106 years of futility, who gives a crap about the current Chicago Cubs?

What’s the point of the Bulls drafting players if they aren’t going to play?

June 27, 2014 by

I know. I am sounding like a broken record. Every year, I make this argument of what the point being, in the Bulls drafting players. When it’s all said and done, it doesn’t matter. Why? Because there is an idiot, who impersonates a head coach, that is at the helm of this team.

In any sport, when a team drafts players (especially ones that are high in the rounds), they usually picked to contribute right away. If not, then there is really no point in doing it. With the NFL, teams get players that are ready to go. When it comes to the NBA, first round picks are suppose to be ready to go and if not, they are usually the ones that play overseas and they wait for cap purposes. Fine with me.

When it comes to the Bulls, neither of those options apply. It’s either stay overseas and do nothing with the pick (Nikola Mirotic) or, draft players and have them sit on the bench until they are traded or released (Marquis Teague, Erik Murphy).

Let’s take a look at all of the draft picks since ThomASS came into the fold, shall we?

2010: Kevin Seraphin (Traded), Jerome Jordan (Traded)

2011: Norris Cole (Traded to the Heat), Jimmy Butler, Malcom Lee (Who?), Nikola Mirotic (Still playing in Spain)

2012: Marquis Teague (Never played – Traded)

2013: Tony Snell (Barely plays), Erik Murphy (Never played – Released)

Now, here we are with 2014. The three geniuses known as Gar Forman, John Paxson and Tom Thibodeau, decided to trade their two draft picks to the Nuggets in exchange for Doug McDermott, current player Anthony Randolph and a future second-round pick. Before I get to McDermott, let me preface by saying that Randolph will cost the Bulls $1.8 million and there is a rule with this type of trade that says the Bulls can’t trade him for 60 days.

With McDermott, I like him as a player. I think he’s a solid shooter and one who could have played in a bigger conference. That doesn’t matter anymore. And not because he’s in the NBA now. But because ThomASS is still here and he will only get on the court during warmups. You can count on the only draft pick above that has actually played to get all of the time in the court. Jimmy Butler will, once again, be on the court for 45 minutes a game. The “experts” will continue to talk about how he needs to play better despite these “experts” not having any clue that the reason he isn’t as good as he should be is because he never gets time to rest. As always with the Bulls, when the playoffs roll around, their legs will be Jello.

So, go ahead. Agree or disagree. I’ve been right all of these years. With Rose’s two bad knees, Noah’s two bad feet and Butler’s Jello legs, the window for this team (whether Carmelo arrives or not), is closing very quickly. So what’s the solution to keep the window open for another year or two?

Fire Tom Thibodeau and replace him with someone who has half of a consciousness.
