I'm not sure why people keeping wasting time with posts like this.  Threads evolve on every message board.  Mods don't seem to care.

So either get used to it, or move along.

Of course...Stoke is now in the Championship, so...

Yeah, and I think this is more or less my point.  For the large majority of European soccer clubs, the only real goal/hope is to not be relegated. Barring the sudden appearance of a Gulf state sheikh or Russian oligarch, there's no path to championships (2016 Leicester exceped), or even sustainable success for most clubs.

Even those are turning into false hope for more teams than not. For every Roman Abramovich that is willing to use his money to win, there are a dozen Anton Zingarevich, Tiger Thanakarnjanasuth, Dai Yongge types that never deliver those players nor results (and those are just Reading FC owners in the less-than-a-decade since John Madejski sold the club).

Leicester is such a ridiculously magical story. I suspect we'll never see their like again in our lifetimes.

Before that season my wife and I started watching EPL she decided she needed to choose a team. Since she likes foxes she chose Leicester, despite mt telling her “they’re probably going to get relegated.” What an amazing season.

Now teams like Leicester, Sheffield United, Wolves, etc are left to just fight for Europe instead of the EPL title.

I got an idea, let's just stop right now and gather up all these bricks and let's build a shelter for the homeless so maybe your mother will have a place to stay

Anyone care to check the NFL ratings for Week 1? Seems we have enough data at this point to demonstrate a trend between social justice warrioring and viewership ratings, and it absolutely is having an effect on NBA ratings. It seems at least 80% of the visitors to this board can’t slurp BLM propaganda fast enough, but I have no interest in watching athletes spread lies about what is truly impacting the progress of the black community. My emotional connection to the NBA (Bucks) and the NFL (Packers) is gone, and it’s not coming back, and there are a lot of people like me. “Good riddance,” “We don’t need you,” “The sport is better off without you,” “you were never a real fan” etc, but it all just supports the fact that athletes have turned sports into a polarizing product, whether you slurpers feel it is warranted or not. I look forward to the advent of the MSNBA and the CNNFL. Maybe Fox will develop its own FOXFL.

I just watched a newly posted series on Netflix called The Playbook a coach’s rules for life
Episode one is a 35 minute interview with Doc Rivers. Please watch:
Finish the race
Don’t be a victim
Unbuntu
Pressure is a privilege
Champions keep moving forward

Please then post your thoughts after watching . I really enjoyed it

Unbuntu!!

My initial thought is that Doc's rules for life would be a lot more meaningful if he wouldn't blow so many 3-1 leads.

And apparently Doc has been fired by the Clippers.

Scholl should give him a call.  What harm can it do?  ;) ;) ;)

Los Angeles Clippers fire coach Doc Rivers after humiliating playoff collapse, per report.
Heard Doc helped connect Marquette with Wojo. Am a Pro Jo, But agree might not hurt to call.

Unlike Billy, Doc would actually take the call.

My guess is at this point, Doc would probably take a few years off and enjoy watching his son play in the league and spending time with his other kids.

It appears Doc has a lady friend in the picture as well. So he has a lot going on.

Don't you think a lot of struggling NBA franchises have already called him.  Would not surprise me if he has another job at the start of next season.

And recall, he was a commentator for the NBA on ABC for one season (calling the 2004 Finals with Al Michaels).  If he is not coaching next season, I would expect he'll be on the other side of the court broadcasting.

He's an NBA guy, not a college guy.

Based on what?  He won an NBA title on a loaded team and hasn’t exactly “outkicked his coverage” the last few years.

Yep. He had a loaded team this year and lost to the Nuggets after being up 3-1.

Time for some new blood in the head coaching ranks.

"Rivers only won three playoff series in six appearances with the Clippers. In addition to his NBA-record three series lost after holding a 3-1 series lead, Rivers’ 3-8 record in potential series-clinching games with the Clippers is tied for the worst record with one team in NBA history."

All I care about is how MU does. If Doc has a head coaching job in the NBA it is good for MU basketball. So I hope he gets another great job.
