the NBA is fixed.

if its not fixed, i hate how they have 1 close game in a playoff series and then suddenly there are 3 or 4 blowout games in a row. it doesnt make sense.

i know you can have an off day, but for teams to switch off games like that is very suspect

The Blackhawks.

Do not fuck with your fans like you are doing now! 2 goals on you in less than two minutes is not funny!


<docinsano>i beat off using save states

<Tako> But, brontosaurs ate plants. It wouldn't be a threat to Jesus.

Why? Fuck you, that's why.

The motherfucking NHL referees.

Did anyone see Game 4 of the Penguins-Canadiens series? Anyone saw how the referees did fucking everything for the Pens to win?

The Habs score a lucky goal early. About 1 minute later, P.K. Subban loses control of the puck at the blue line and is tripped while he tries to get it back.
Result? 2-on-1 for the Pens, they score.

That in itself isn't that bad. The NHL is notorious for giving less penalties during the playoffs than during the regular season.
But please be constant with your fucking calls.

Two minutes later, Hal Gill gets a hooking penalty for doing the exact same fucking thing, except the Penguins player didn't fall on the ice.
On that power play, Hamrlik is tripped, no penalty is called, Penguins score 5 seconds later.
5 minutes into the game, and the Habs already allowed two goals because of the referees' incompetence.

Then Andrei Kostitsyn received a punch in the face, but no penalty was called, the referee said the defenseman used his shoulder.

But what really pissed me off happened at the end of the 3rd period. Crosby's stick breaks because of a Habs player. The referee doesn't call a penalty.
Crosby then complains to the referee. Referee raises his hand over 5 seconds after this happened. WTF!? You're not supposed to change your fucking decision!
Of course, when it's Scott Gomez who complains to the official, he gets a penalty for "lack of sportsmanship".

If the Penguins really are a super fucking awesome team, they'll win their games by themselves. You're not supposed to help them, you're supposed to be neutral, you're a fucking referee!
Still, the Habs won the game anyway, but we won't last long if they continue to pull that kind of shit.

Apparently, something like that happened to the Canucks, with the officials "not seeing" a shitload of goalie interference penalties that allowed the Blackhawks to score a few goals.

I think the NHL hates Canada.

For me, it's the away goals rule in soccer. It annoys me so much and I don't even follow the sport at all. Basically, the rule is that at the end of a two game aggregate, if it is tied, the team that scored more goals as the road team advances.

However, the way I view it, it is no different than saying that away goals count for 1.01 goals and home goals only count for 1.00 goals, and that's just profoundly stupid. The fact that it supersedes overtime as well is even worse.

Apparently the refs just didn't want to call it in that game. But yeah, the inconsistency of the reffing is a major issue. At least when everything was called, you knew what actions would draw a penalty, even if the players didn't adjust for a couple years.

Hell, does anyone know what a "distinct kicking motion" is?

Baseball "fans" who go in the stadium and don't even watch the whole fucking game.
Just watched a game between the Dodgers and Yankees.
Game is in LA, but every Dodgers fan already quit on the 7th, so the Yankees fans saw their team get an awesome comeback
after the Dodgers decided to show off how much they could suck at keeping a 4 points lead.

Fuck LA, I'm now back to not giving a shit about whoever the fuck wins.
Somewhat rooting for the Pittsburgh Pirates as it's the only team I've never seen accomplish anything whatsoever.

Golf...


I'm so bananas I'm showing up to your open casket,
to fill it up with explosive gases,
and close it back,
with a lit match in it,
while I sit back, and just hope it catches.

Blow you to fragments,
laugh,
roll you, and smoke the ashes.

How the Texans can come from behind to tie the game Sunday then on the last play of the game give up a 50+ yard hail mary to lose it. I would love to be able to say at 3:30 on a Sunday "Well they got this one in the bag I guess I'll head to work." But no they always get blown out or win at the very end. Which means I never get to see it.

If your not watching anything else, you can tape two things at once. You just have to leave it on one of the channels. Well, my DVR from Comcast works that way.

Canada losing the World U20 Championship to Russia after leading 3-0 and changing their game plan to "conserve the lead".

What the fuck were they trying to do? That strategy never works, unless the other team is so incredibly shitty that they can't make you pay for the billion chances
you give them by spending the whole fucking game in your territory. If you're stupid enough to try that, you might as well forfeit.

It doesn't matter if you have a ridiculous lead like 3 goals in soccer after one half or 21 points in the 4th quarter in football, you'll still lose because you're a fucking moron.

1997, baby. That was such a fantastic tournament. Beat three number one seeds to win the whole thing.

Only time I ever won a March Madness pool, too.

back on topic, i hate how ESPN dared to even compare that full court alley oop between james/wade and rooneys bicycle kick.



this is the best i can find for the rooney goal, youtube took all the others down because of copyright issues

Jesus. Do you even live close to it? They don't put down the "border war" posters ever. Oh yeah, what a great thing to represent with collegiate sports, especially for Mizzou. So, are they rooting for slavery? I work with Missourian's and you would never know that their side lost or was for slavery. Must suck to live in the south
