which has been my point for years, obviously

Well I don't think you need to be Billy Beane to realize that Lincecumdumpster's best days are behind him. Baseball anyway, maybe he'll be picked up by a boy band.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

I haven't really read the thread since the weekend minus a little bit to see the comments on the yanks/angels game. Was doing fine imo up til then. Guess I'll have to keep a closer look at it. Tough to keep up with season threads though, I rarely read all the posts from previous days if I wasn't reading and roughly keep up with games when I'm sitting down and watching baseball.

Dude, Mike Ditka is on the list, too. So that makes at least two coaches who actively suck.

I see Joe Paterno is on the list. So I guess enough time has passed that we're all right with that.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

Mike Ditka won a super bowl, but only one. Plenty of ****ty coaches have won one super bowl, and their resume doesn't include "wrecking a team's future with one awful trade made out of laziness".

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

Yeah, Ditka is pretty lol I guess, didn't see him at a glance. He was the coach of a team that could be the greatest NFL roster ever assembled, although I don't know nearly enough to know 1) how much credit he is due for putting that roster together, and 2) how many SBs that team should have won over the handful of years they were dominant, i.e. how short of expectations they fell, if at all.

Regardless, his resume isn't that great. You could just as easily make an argument for John Madden.

****ty is prob a strong word but billick seemed super unimpressive. he ran through a string of great d coordinators and was backed by a terrific gm while presiding over a **** offense and he gets all the credit? seems kinda unfair.

you have the same situation in the MLB thread as you did 3 years ago where a bunch of people were *******s about sabermetrics. the difference is then you had people intentionally being dicks to prove a (probably pedantic) point and now you have a bunch of people being dicks to see if they can make someone mad over the internet

the "analysis" that is being presented as an honest argument is nothing more than googling some numbers that don't mean anything (ikes has repeatedly shown he doesn't know when to do a weighted average, for example) in the hopes of making phildo (mostly) mad about lincecum being bad in a few innings

phildo shouldn't get so butthurt about it but at the same time there's no reason that the village idiots should be participating in a "u mad" contest since it's only "fair" because it does, in fact, get phildo to try and actually argue his side, which is a worthless endeavor for any number of obvious reasons
Shots fired. And I like it.
