Camps opening this week. I'm psyched, as baseball season in Philly has been a total bust.

Gonna find out if Chip Kelly and Nick Foles are the real deal. I think they are.

Absolutely pumped! I do think it's funny that my Browns are waiting so damn long to just say "Manziel is our starter". I mean, I love Hoyer's game and determination but there's no way Manziel is not starting the season. If Manziel is out the starter, I expect complete anarchy by week 3 in the stands.

Geeeeeeezus, already? No I'm still recovering from that brutal Super Bowl loss.

The only way to make it right, is to go back and win it this time.

Go BRONCOS!!!

I am in 4 fantasy leagues. In one I have that Manziel character just because I want watch his stats to see if he implodes, or explodes.

I also have a futures bet that the Packers, and/or the Seahawks will win the 2015 Superbowl.

Just one league for me, I've been in it for 6 years now I think and never won it.. I usually have the top points overall and most regular season wins, but just can't win the big one.. Last year I unfortunately played the team with the Seahawks D in the playoffs! Anyway, another year another shot!

I'll be rooting for my beloved Niners & Vikes(I know I'm an awful person for having two teams). Niners look pretty good, but the SeaChickens stand in their way. As for the Vikings......well we have AP!

Johnny is looking pretty decent! I'm getting pumped with each day that goes by. The only thing that is weighing on us Browns fans right now is Josh Gordon's looming suspension. This delay has taken far too long and is at the point of absurdity.

Stats don't mean anything. I had Romo and he's a pretty good fantasy QB, but he's terrible when it comes to winning important games.

Is there a way for the Cowboy fans to oust Jerry as owner? :-D

Josh is is done for the year. No way the NFL is going to undo this suspension.

Well, there's a chance that it could be reduced. I think that's what we're kind of holding on to in general. As much as I think the entire suspension is utter BS , I won't even start that argument or "excuse". If the suspension remains as a full season suspension, I am really going to be pissed off and lose even more faith in Goodell and the disciplinary system in the NFL.

Well the collective bargaining agreement set up these rules. So the players have as much to blame as anyone as well. What is Goodell going to do, bend the rules for this case. Then when he tries to do something else, the NFL players will complain about it. Why as the head of the NFL put yourself in a position to support a double standard.

Because in light of recent news that they intend to lighten the punishment for marijuana, they should take this suspension into consideration. Since his specific suspension will be carrying into a season where the penalty is reduced, it's overkill. Sure, they can go by the books and nobody can blame them. But, there's also a lot of gray area when it comes to second-hand smoke and the trace amounts of THC in Gordon's test results show that he clearly was not smoking.

It may sound like I'm being a biased fan, but the whole situation just sucks for the guy and I'm looking at it as unbiased as possible. If this were any other player, I'd have the same stance. Gordon is absolutely just as responsible for what goes into his body (whether he smokes it, or inhales it in the same car as a friend who's smoking), so I'm not taking any heat off of this knucklehead either by any means.

I just think it's bad for business when you say "X player is suspended for the entire 2014 NFL Season". Then, follow up with "By the way, the penalty is going to be drastically reduced after we suspend said player".

I hope the Packers can do some damage in the playoffs this year. They have been my favorite NFL team since I was a kid. " We didn't lose the game; we just ran out of time ."

I am in one FL with some family members. Won it all last year. P. Manning made that happen for me.

Yeah, I am ready for the NFL  to get going. Maybe a few weekly bets at the local sports book. NFL football is about the only sport I like to watch. That, and the World Series. After football, I will be watching (maybe?) the NBA conference championships. Grand Kids, golfing, RVing, fishing, and hiking take up too much of my time. :-D

The Packers always end up right in the hunt. Im a Niner fan but I absolutely respect the Packers. That has been a great under the radar rivalry for a while now. See you in the Playoffs!

    • 2016 BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth
      Nice to see Chris Wood win this,well done.He tends to play well in the British Open with a best T3 at Turnberry maybe this win will spur him on. Surely another Ryder cup player.
    • Your best golfing bargain
      I got two: Played Orange County National (Orlando) for 50 dollar. Including lunch and both Crooked cat and Panther lake. And got vouchers to play the course next time for half the normal price. Played a three day tourney in Sauerland (Germany) including a pré tourney round for 220 dollar. During the three days ALL drinks for free, food for free, last day dinner for free. Not just a hamburger, but full fetched all you can eat top meal (and again all drinks for free). Will be back next year 
    • GPS, WHY ?
      It comes down to how big are your shot zones. It's usually better to try to line up the shot zone center to the center of the green.
    • Are you a Better Golfer than a Year Ago?
      And confirmation. Last year I played a three day tournament in Germany and scored 82, 86 and 91. Same tourney this year 80, 83 and 86. Happy 
    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      Here's some more below about the lowest you might expect - even on an easy course. I think this is largely true, but pros don't tend to play a lot on 'easy' courses so there doesn't seem to be even much anecdotal stuff. The quote below describes what's considered the 'perfect round'. I guess you could also consider a 'go-for-green' perfect round where you also hit all the par 5's in two and one-putted those for eagle for a 'go-for-green perfect' score of 50. Obviously the likelihood of doing this in a single round defies the essence of golf, but it's a good a hard theoretical lower limit that probably depends more on the par than the course rating. Likely the odds grow exponentially as the percentage of birdied / eagled holes rises. I think we can discount albatrosses as a 'perfect round' option. Most tournament pro scores don't get below 56 and 59 with about an 80/20 rule separating the more frequent 59s from the 58's. That's 4-5 strokes (assuming par 72) over the 'perfect round' and 8-9 over the 'go-for-green perfect round', each of which represent grabbing about 75% and 61% respectively of the potential shots under par realistically available. I suppose a short par-4 would add another potential eagle opportunity, but we'll discount that as I'm not sure how universal they are. The lowest tournament round was 55 (par of 71) by one single golfer out of how many total tournament rounds by pros and plus HCP amateurs over the years? So while 55 is humanly achievable it's super rare and likely represents the lower limit of any possible likelihood. That would put the absolute lowest threshold around 17.8 below the course rating (72.8) and 16 below par. So there's a lot of room to go below even a low course rating or par of 70. I don't think the expected scores would get too squished and the distribution would still likely be normal in shape. The thing that is probably unrealistic is how narrow the range of expected scores is. The field is extremely consistent, but I think a single individual player (whose average score is the same as the field) will have a score variance significantly larger than the field. I think the mode likely stays the same while the distribution flattens / spreads out more into the tails with a little more probability to both go low and high and less certainty of shooting within a stroke or two of the mode / most likely score.
