  1. It should be noted that this evolution has been entirely community driven. I think a majority of the mods lean in favor of a larger number of more narrowly focused threads (at least that's the sense I have based on some conversations in the mod forum, but it's been a while since it's been discussed), but as this view is not shared by the majority of regular users, mega-threads are the way we do things here. There have been times when someone complained about a dedicated thread for something clearly worthy of it's own thread, but not so much anymore. We seem to have found a pretty good balance that works for the largest number of regulars. Every forum has a different vibe and way of doing things. This is the way things work here at MTS.
  2. This article by Bobby Jenks on the injury -- and botched surgery -- that lead to both the end of his career and the beginning of his addiction to pain pills is crazy. "Concurrent surgeries" is a practice I'd never heard of, and it's hard to believe it's legal. https://www.theplayerstribune.com/en-us/articles/bobby-jenks-baseball-scar-tissue
  3. Diggs must have demanded a trade or otherwise wore out his welcome. Otherwise, this doesn't make any sense at all.
  4. I think I was the only one here who called this one out in the game thread. I don't think anyone said anything about this in the moment, either. I called it out in the game thread, but none of the announcers said anything.
  5. Totally. "Stop crying, Lions fan! Get a stop, and you win the game! LOL!" They got the stops. The refs gave GB two un-earned 1st downs to keep drives going.
  6. Most times I"d agree with this, but not this game. What you are essentially saying is that the Lions must play well enough to not only win against the Packers at Lambeau, but well enough to blow them out just to ensure the refs can't play a role. That's BS.
  7. I'm not. Flowers wore a Patriots jersey for all but 4.75 of those games.
  8. And it's already gone, lol. I don't blame him, honestly, but someone from the team needs to call this out.
  9. Someone's decided that calling this out is worth the fine. Good. I wish it was Martha, though.
  10. This loss ended the Lions chances at a playoff berth, IMO. Short of an major injury to Rodgers, the Packers will win the North, the Seahawks or 49ers will get one of the wild cards, and the Vikings are 2 wins up on Detroit at the moment. With the tie, they likely will need at least 10 wins to get in, meaning they need 8 wins in their 11 remaining games. I don't see the Lions going 8-3 the rest of the way.
  11. Yup, that call was the one that effectively stole the game from the Lions. And to those who say, "well then make a stop!": they did make a stop. That stop was overturned by a blatantly bull**** call.
  12. Also, I'm not entirely convinced the refs don't gift the Pack some other calls if the Lions do score more TDs.
  13. The Lions should have converted TDs on more of their scoring drives, but it doesn't change the fact that they did enough to win this game, and that poor officiating was the difference.
  14. Marth Vader needs to hold a presser tomorrow and light up the NFL for this game. She's the only one who can really do this. No one gives a **** about Patricia, but an owner's voice carries real weight. She needs to tear them several new a**holes.
  15. Dude, the call should've been on the the offense. His hand went to Flowers' facemask.
