ROBJETS Icon : (21 March 2015 - 09:05 PM) Im proud od the Pac 12. Like everyone else I didnt feel UCLA deserved to be in the tourney. They got owned a good bit in the regular season but only 4 Pac 12 teams made it and 3 have moved on to the 16 so far. If Oregon beats Wisconsin tomorrow all 4 teams will be in the sweet 16.

RetireChrebet Icon : (22 March 2015 - 01:26 PM) seed?
RetireChrebet Icon : (22 March 2015 - 01:28 PM) Haha I'm jk man, but my point was if you've never seen virginia play you would know they weren't going anywhere. Their offense is just painful to watch.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:46 PM) Lol....point taken. But a couple of things. 1 you do realize Nova and Va are in the same bracket right? 2 at least Va lost to a top 25 ranked opponent. Nova lost to an unranked.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:49 PM) Also VA beat some good teams. Lost to Duke,beat Maryland and split games with NC and Louisville. Their wins against quality and ranked opponents was higher and better than Nova.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:55 PM) NC State didn't even get one vote to be in the top 25

JSOTF Icon : (25 March 2015 - 06:02 AM) So, the question is.......Do I invest to go see the Jets vs Fish in England this season????????

HarlemHxC814 Icon : (25 March 2015 - 07:10 AM) My brother is moving to London next year...so I have a reason to be over there
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (25 March 2015 - 07:10 AM) This August I should say
Smedsthejet Icon : (25 March 2015 - 02:59 PM) You both should do it...I'll buy the first (overpriced) beers as well! Got my ticket back in January
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (25 March 2015 - 03:02 PM) Smeds if I come over I'll be sure to check you out
santana Icon : (25 March 2015 - 09:58 PM) FIRE FIREMAN ED
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 03:58 AM) Well, I now live accros the pond and maybe some of us could meet up there?
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 03:59 AM) Smeds, where did you get your tickets?
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 05:56 AM) Az bitches!!!
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:01 AM) I dont know about all that. As bad as we get over sports the Brits get far worse. You might suffer a huge beat down if you say the wrong thing there. Well maybe not being its televised to the U.S.. Security probably be pretty tight.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:03 AM) Well...... the good thing is I know who to mooch off of now if I go to London.
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 06:47 AM) hahahaha, it isnt European Football!
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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 : (Yesterday, 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.
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 07:36 AM) hahahaha
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 07:36 AM) damn Europeans!
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 07:37 AM) They havent fucked with a disgruntled, lifelong Jets fan!!!
Smedsthejet Icon : (Yesterday, 02:49 PM) Got my tickets from Ticketmaster the day they went on general sale
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 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 : (Today, 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 : (Today, 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 : (Today, 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 : (Today, 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 : (Today, 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
JSOTF Icon : (Today, 07:08 AM) I actually live in Germany

Reaction: Jets should've kept Keller

Some quick thoughts on the Jets' latest defection -- TE Dustin Keller leaving to take his talents to South Beach for a one-year contract with the Dolphins:

QUESTIONABLE MOVE: I can understand why the Jets let RB Shonn Greene, S LaRon Landry, S Yeremiah Bell and, to a lesser extent, DT Mike DeVito walk out the door, but this Keller situation puzzles me. He's only 28, still in his prime. He's a pass-catching tight end whose skills would've translated nicely into Marty Mornhinweg's West Coast system. He probably didn't break the bank with the Dolphins (guessing around $3 million), so the cost wouldn't have been prohibitive. It's not like they have no cap space; the latest estimate is about $14 million under the cap. It seems that new GM John Idzik has it in his mind that he has to strip down the entire operation.

TOUGH MARKET: Obviously, Keller wanted a long-term deal, but he was undermined by two factors: The tight end market dried up quickly, and his value took a hit because he missed eight games last season due to hamstring and ankle injuries. The durability question is bogus because he didn't miss a game in his first four seasons. He got unlucky at the worst time. Stuff happens. At the end of the season, he talked about not wanting the franchise tag because it afforded no long-term security. As it turned out, he got a scaled-down version of a franchise tag.

NOW WHAT?: The Jets' starting tight end will be Jeff Cumberland, a restricted free agent who received the low tender ($1.3 million). This is troubling. He played in 55 percent of the offensive snaps last season, finishing with 29 catches for 359 yards and three touchdowns -- all career highs. He has the athletic ability, but I wonder if he has the route-running discipline to thrive in a West Coast offense. He doesn't have the same rapport with QB Mark Sanchez that Keller did.

MIAMI NICE: Well, say this for the Dolphins: They're winning the offseason. Of course, that doesn't mean anything. Remember the "Dream Team" Eagles of two years ago? That said, I think Keller will be a good pick-up for them. Coach Joe Philbin employs a West Coast attack, and Keller will give them more in the passing game than his predecessor, Anthony Fasano (Chiefs). Because he's on a one-year contract, Keller will be highly motivated in advance of another bite at free agency.

Keller is overrated...his FA contract should finally convince all those who thought otherwise.

He would've been better off with the franchise tag. Now only time will tell how things turn out. He got a low deal and only for one year because of the length of time he missed last season not to mention TE's aren't as valuable anymore with teams going with a RB by committee that has one acting almost like a TE receiving out of the backfield.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

When someone annoys u, it takes 42 muscles in ur face 2 frown. BUT, it only takes 4 muscles 2 extend ur arm & b!tch-slap that mother@*?!&! upside the head!!
