Prevent Defense has its place. Like maybe on the last few plays of a game when a team needs a touchdown. But what really gets me is when a team is up by 3 and they play prevent D with a minute or so remaining. And it is so common! Stanford vs. Notre Dame anyone?
Firing qualified coaches rather than inept general mangers or team presidents.
A related one; firing qualified coaches due to the star player not liking the coach.
To celebrate the passing of the Troll Amnesty (and for otherwise no reason at all), I present to you the very best of Trolling here on The W. This Troll Moment of the Week is brought to you by;
Goldbergista, who brought us such pieces as wisdom as: "The people on the forums need to see the truth; you need to see that Benoit is garbage… and that Nash, Batista, Hogan, Warrior and Goldberg are the true wrestlers!!"
smark/net attack Advisory System Status is: Elevated (Holds; July 5, 2005) It's good to see that the WWE isn't backing away from Batista or Cena. There's still some questions lingering over a few of the draft moves they either made or didn't make (Jericho being a prime example), but the stage is set for a solid run to Summerslam that may send the indicator down. The longer Triple H stays away is also a plus...
Originally posted by britishilesYou can't have a "Grand Slam Single".
Actually, you can. Robin Ventura, anyone?
That's not true. A "grand slam" by baseball definition is a homerun with 3 runners on base.
Ventura was out after rounding first so I think technically, only the winning run counted and the rest did not count.
Big Show: Why is he getting the Intercontinental Title shot and not me? RVD: Ahhh...maybe 'cause you're a tool. Big Show: Look. I am 7'2". I am 500 pounds. I'm a giant. RVD: Oh ok. You're a giant tool.
Football the New York Giants always have a crappy "conservative" philosophy.
1. Any time you punt in opponent's territory, it is stupid. A punt from field goal position (the opponent's 33) is even worse, just go for it.
2. The on midfield with 2 minutes left in the half taking a knee 3 times instead of trying to score. "They are just content to go into halftime only down by 7 at this point." Have some faith in your offense.
3. A playcall having the quarterback roll right and two of his receivers roll far left. Just as bad as the quarterback deciding to make an offbalance throw across his body accross the field begging to be intercepted.
4. Drafting an overall #1 QB specializing in running like Vince Young and trying to change him into a traditional pocket passer.
I was born in St. Louis, but moved to Miami when I was two and have lived in Florida pretty much ever since. I've been working for newspapers in one capacity or another since I was 14 and it is without competition the love of my life.
