Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

Friend, a fellow Seahawks fan, just defended Mike Pereira to me over text and now I'm on monkey-tilt for the rest of my existence.

It's a ****ing crime that Mike Pereira even gets to be part of adult society and gets to leave his home without every single person who spots him diving at his knees, let alone gets to hold himself as an officiating expert AND GET PAID FOR IT, after the job he did in being the company man for the NFL in the aftermath of Super Bowl XL. **** these people who sit on camera and brazenly lie to line their pockets and never feel any professional consequence for it.

On a long enough timeline, even a fellow Seahawks fan can't be bothered to continue to remember that Mike Pereira is a soulless minister of propaganda who should not only not be employed but probably shouldn't be afforded clean air or water. ****ing ****.

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

"Elements of a hold" should be the entire tagline of Mike Pereira's tombstone, and instead he'll probably get some sort of "loving husband/father/etc" nonsense.

If you're going to be a professional ****ing liar, you should at least need to degrade yourself by begging for a spot on Dancing With the Stars before you're going to become employable again.

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

Packers get a key, saving first down on a phantom penalty. Can I assume that the braintrust in SE has devoted 5% of the number of posts to it that they would if the Seahawks had benefited from the same call? I know that they're a highly rational bunch over there.

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

Like, just a total phantom call, and now we have a game where we wouldn't otherwise. Not going to click on the forum; I just know that "selective" is their only form of prosecution, and that those who contribute to the problem fail to wake up each day feeling bad about it. For the life of me I have no idea what benefit a forum could provide if their primary mission is slobbering over Aaron Rodgers no matter how brutally unlikable he is.

I love people.

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

Like, the announcers called it what it was on replay, so thankfully there's no moral obligation to permanently blacklist them from all employment. However, no matter how high-leverage it was, I'm ****ing certain there won't be a single other mention of it for the rest of the broadcast. Why? Because the team that benefited was the Packers, and therefore \_(ツ)_/. If another team benefited then it would be the new theme of the broadcast.

Again, really a big fan of people. They're great.

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

ARE YOU ****ING KIDDING ME

Sure glad that "you've got facts but I've got feelings" is how the world operates. The highlight reels afterward will not even for a second talk about how this is the story of the game.

Everybody is a goddamn disgrace and nobody will raise their hand to say that they have no right to continue breathing if they aren't spending their whole damn night condemning this.

Holy ****ing **** at everyone who has decided that this is okay to not flip a ****ing lid over. No no, we only have hands across America over bad calls if the Packers are on the other side. Thank you, everybody.

Thankfully there appears to be at least some level of national coverage keeping it real. Breaks with the usual custom of reacting to every Packers game by giving Rodgers a hot stone massage no matter what happened.

From that article:

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers doesn’t exactly have a lot of help
Maybe not from his receivers, but I think he had some help from some other folks last night.

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

Russell Wilson is throwing to Tyler Lockett, DK Metcalf, and a bunch of other dudes who are replacement-level at absolute best. He has the 4th-highest passer rating through six games ever, with the other three being Kurt Warner 1999 (greatest show on turf), Tom Brady 2007 (Moss, Welker, etc), and Manning 2013. He has yet to throw an interception.

"Not getting a lot of help" is one of those arguments a person trots out to support the point that they started the exercise wanting to make, rather than something that causes the person to arrive at a conclusion honestly.

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

Current MVP rankings should be Russ > Watson > McCaffrey. After those top 3 there should be a big gap before arguments for ordering Mahomes (injured), Rodgers (record), Brady (record), Garrapolo (record), and Lamar (stats + record) start.

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

I actually have no idea where the national conversation is right now on things like MVP. I still watch avidly on Saturdays and Sundays but I don't much follow the chatter during the week anymore. I keep swiping left on my WSU podcasts ever since the UCLA debacle.

But generally speaking, when someone starts an article with "the numbers don't show it, but..." an author should strongly consider abandoning his or her thesis. I realize that Florio is a hack on a pretty consistent basis though.

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

Friend getting married in 6.5 months. Was going to devote some time just now to mapping out travel plans. Went to the wedding website that was fully functional a month ago, and...it's a dead link now.

Despite him being a close friend, I feel pretty uncomfortable with the prospect of reaching out and saying, "So uhh is your relationship as dead as this link?" I guess I'll give it a few days.

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

Kidding, of course. I'll say it more tactfully. Honestly I'm guessing the engagement is perfectly fine and that there's some other explanation.

I must really care about my friend since I'm rooting for there to be a happy explanation despite the fact that I barely know the bride and a canceled wedding would spare me the expense of paying money to go to the hellhole known as Spokane WA.

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

Is it socially acceptable to say no to those types of things? If someone invited me to a wedding and it was going to cost a load of money for me, no thanks.

I'm starting to get a bit worried that a friend of mine is going to ask me to be his best man soon, not sure how I say no to that. I love him and all but all that work planning ****, nah. Especially when I'm not really that friendly with the main group of people he hangs around with.

I'm also worried that a friend is about to have a kid and may ask me to be a godfather, that I wouldn't say no to but will hate the bullshit I have to go to as a result.

Depends entirely on the closeness of the friendship and the hardship it costs to say yes IMO.

It will be the greatest story ever told if Green Bay loses to the Fighting Moores after building a 14-0 lead.
