ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:04 AM) Ive seen a lot of videos. Most countries go psycho over their soccer teams. Ive seen some serious very bloody beat downs. Fans stabbing the players and refs,etc. And they say we are bad in the U.S. not even close to that.
ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:06 AM) I think one was in Africa....a fan stormed the field and was knifing everyone in sight after his team lost
ROBJETS Icon : (26 March 2015 - 07:08 AM) Hell even in mma when the Brits come over they are all cocky as hell. Big time cocky like they are going to easily destroy everyone they face cocky.

ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:33 AM) You guys get Bellator in London? http://www.bellator.com/schedule its on Spike tv free regular cable channel. in the U.S. and the prelims are free on http://www.spike.com/
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:37 AM) London is 4 hours ahead of east coast U.S. Bellator prelims are 7pm Friday night U.S. East Coast time and the main card is 9pm So just add 4 hours to that if you can catch either. Im sure you can catch a stream or use a U.S. VPN if you dont have access to Spike.com. You guys might get Bellator on another channel their just like with the UFC.
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:47 AM) Anyway only reason I mentioned it was because of your sense of humor. The last Bellator 134 was called the British Invasion. If you watch mma Might want to add this site to your favorites http://www.mmauk.net...y/bellatornews/
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:55 AM) There was one of those hour long shows about the upcoming event featuring the fighters the prior week to Bellator 134 and all 4 of the Brits were cocky as hell. Yelling "The British are coming!!!!"
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 02:57 AM) By the way 135 is tonight if you are interested. I used to watch pretty much all the televised mma now I stick with Bellator and UFC only
ROBJETS Icon : (27 March 2015 - 03:07 AM) that last link is a UK mma site. Only reason i added it. http://www.sherdog.com/ is pretty much the best mma site on the net for everything mma

azjetfan Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:12 PM) Soooo has anyone had any experience with the new Sling Tv?
azjetfan Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:13 PM) $20 a month gets you ESPN and 15 other channels.

santana Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:57 PM) negative
santana Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:58 PM) I'm a fan of the apple tv though. I just use a clients fios tv account to access the different services like watch espn
santana Icon : (30 March 2015 - 02:59 PM) i also have hbo go netflix amazon prime. with hd antennas i get the local channels as well.
azjetfan Icon : (30 March 2015 - 03:00 PM) I tried the watch ESPN ap but since I cancelled my DTV it said I needed a provider.
santana Icon : (30 March 2015 - 03:10 PM) yep need an account

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:58 PM) JEts are going to remain at florham park for training camp
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:58 PM) no cortland or hofstra
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:12 PM) Unless you guys are looking for internet tv alternatives to cable or satellite tv You are better off just buying a slingbox http://www.slingbox.com/
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:15 PM) I like Directv better but ine thing Dishnetwork has is an integrated slinbox into the Genie so it is far better receiver than Directv`s
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:18 PM) With a slingbox you can just login to Slingbox and you can watch every single channel you have at home with the same guide and remote. A Slingbox basically makes it as if you have a receiver anywhere in the world you have internet access. So you get every single channel that you get at home with all the functions. setting recordings, watch recorded shows,etc.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:27 PM) Its not the same thing as Directv ans cable companies giving you access to certain channels by logging in our going to websites by logging in. You literally get every single channel from home anywhere as long as you have wifi or wired net. My cousin has a Slingbox hooked to his Directv receiver. Actually I mean hopper.....duhhhh Directv has the Genie. The Hopper has the integrated Slingbox...and thats hats the one cool thing about the Hopper not having to shell out the extra cash for a seaparate slingbox since its integrated with the Hopper
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:28 PM) Slingboxes are nice just not cheap
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 08:50 PM) :thud:
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:08 PM) I did away with paying over a hundred bucks a month. My DTV bill was crazy and even after I lowered my package to the minimum I was still paying way too much for something we really didn't use much
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:09 PM) i do NetFlix and Sling TV.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:09 PM) i was doing Hulu too but cancelled it
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 09:10 PM) I have $30 a month into my tv now. Locals with an HD antenna
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:46 PM) Word Hd antenna is real nice when you live close to a city. Here in nola everything comes in crisp and clear for a $6 antenna

If Boise State's win over Oklahoma last night isnt proof that college football needs a playoff system then I dont know what needs to happen for the idiots at the NCAA to take an interest.

They went 13-0, beat one of the big boys, but since they played in a shit conference, they dont deserve a chance? That's ridiculous. Give the guys a shot to win it, make a playoff. I dont care if they get smashed in the next round, atleast they would have had a chance instead of being told they cant do it simply because of the conference they play in.

What if they did something like that in college basketball? Example: "George Mason? What conference are you in? HAHAHAHA You have no chance. You're out, UCONN gets to go to the Final Four. Sorry."

Point is, they got a shot, and they took it. And College football should be like that as well, I dont care what conference youre in, if youre undefeated, I think you atleast deserve a playoff shot to go for the championship.

Further more, whats the problem with a playoff system instead of having the Why-watch? Bowl or the I-Dont-Care Bowl? You can still have the major bowls in the playoff system can you not? Just make all the games from ever round at a neutral site and call it a bowl...you'll still make your money.

Getting off my playoff argument. WOW. That was probably the best, most exciting, most heartwarming football game I have ever seen. It seemed like Boise State let it go, then boom, the hook & latteral gets them the tying score. It seemed like Oklahoma won in over time then boom. BSU converted on 4th and 2 for the score. And then they went for 2, and boom, the statue of liberty play wins it for David. They slay Goliath. And after its all said and done, probably the most tear jerking moment on the sidelines happened when Ian Johnson proposed to his girlfriend. It was a perfect night for Boise State and unless you go to Oklahoma or are an extremely intense fan of them...if you werent happy about that night, you really dont have a heart.

I fell asleep in the 3rd quarter. I had to watch the highlights. A hook and latteral and the statue of liberty all in the same game. A playoff system is the only way to go. Look what it did to college b-ball with March Madness.

A playoff system is needed but at first I think all Division 1A conferences should be entitled to a shot at the BCS Championship not just the big name conferences such as the SEC, Big 10, Pac 10 etc. I mean the ACC was garbage this year and this was shown by the fact Miami only just beat Nevada in their bowl game.

With 11 conferences in Division 1A what should happen is the conference champions go in to a tournament plus, to factor in in the Independents, there should be 1 at large berth for another team (which doesn't have to be an independent) to make it a 12 team tournament. I know this would deny some powerhouse teams a shot and would put some poor teams into the playoff such as the Sun Belt winner but the only way these teams can be given the chance to compete with the big conferences is by putting them up against better competition and into bowls where the prize money is greater.
You would still have the rankings but these would be less important and would only determine the seedings. The top 4 ranked teams would each get a bye in the first round (similar to the NFL) with the #1 team at the top of the bracket for the 2nd round and the #2 team at the bottom of the bracket.

This is how it would probably work:

Round 1:

Game 1 - #12 team (at-large berth, not conference champ) vs #5
Game 2 - #11 team vs #6
Game 3 - #10 team vs #7
Game 4 - #9 team vs #8

Round 2:

Game 5 - winner game 1 vs #1 team
Game 6 - winner game 4 vs #4 team
Game 7 - winner game 3 vs #3 team
Game 8 - winner game 2 vs #2 team

Semi-Finals

Winner game 5 vs Winner game 6
Winner game 7 vs Winner game 8

National Championship - two semi final winners

With this system you would still get great matchups not only in the playoffs, but throughout the bowl system IMO as some 'powerhouse' teams wouldn't have made it and so would be left to fill the other bowls.
The biggest flaw is though that teams may play up to 15/16 game seasons if they make it to the national championship whilst you may get similar conference champions still every year but it would certainly make the other conferences stronger in my eyes.
