  • Can't we figure out a better voting system?

    with the technology we have today, you'd think we can figure out a more secure, better voting system. even if you still have to go to a polling place, that's fine, but we should be able to figure out how to use secure networks for instant voting, instead of paper ballots.

  • Does the NFL not flex Monday Night Football match ups?

    They do it for occasion on Sunday Night, for instance, the Bears vs Vikings game was switched to Sunday night this week, instead of the Steelers and Jaguars. Tonight's MNF is terrible - Giants and 49ers. Week 14 could see another SNF switch, the Steelers and Raiders is the current match up. but i wouldn't be surprised if its the Bears... show more

Bears could be 9-3, Rams 11-1. potential play off previews. BQ: anyone outside the fan base planning on watching that game? i probably won't.

  • So, is the White House fake news now?

    They said Trump was going to come out and make a statement on policy changes to immigration. instead, it was a speech similar to his rallies just in a "toned down" manner compared to what he is at his rallies. a lot of the statements were false too when he was rambling, as per usual.

  • Is this Dave Roberts last game managing the Dodgers?

    He was even booed by the fans as they introduced him earlier. what about Kershaw? Is this the last game he'll pitch in a Dodger uniform? He has the option to opt out of his contract, with two years remaining. If he cant win with the Dodgers, what's a realistic team he can go to to try to win a World Series?

  • Do you think the Bears can win on Sunday?

    They play the Jets at home in Chicago, against a rookie QB and avg offense. As long as the Bears offense can limit or have no turnovers, I think they should win. Plus, it's possible they could be back in first place after this weekend. The Packers play the Rams The Vikings play the Saints The Lions play the Seahawks

  • Who would you like to see win the World Series?

    The Dodgers or the Red Sox? The Dodgers are trying to win their first since 1988. The Red Sox are trying to win their first since 2003. I wouldn't mind seeing Kershaw finally get his ring.

    Will he get the 10+ years, $300 million plus contract he wants? The Cubs are the favorite to land him. With Dodgers, Red Sox and Yankees next. The Phillies could be a surprise contender as well. Where do you think he'll land and for how much? Will he sign during the winter meetings, or drag it out up until Spring Training or longer? Last winter was notoriously slow for free agent signings. a lot of teams didn't want to give out large contract to plus 20 or early 30 players. But, Harper is only 25 years old. as crazy at it sounds, he's just entering of the prime of his career. he stayed pretty healthy all of last year, which is a plus for him, and even though is BA was down, he still hit 34 home runs and 100 RBIs for the first time. With him and Manny Machado topping the free agent list, it'll be an interesting winter.
