I don’t think Brooks misses The Ryder Cup. 

I think you’re right, and I don’t think that’s necessarily wise.

He should sit out if he’s at all less than 100%.

I feel a little bad for Kisner.
Always a bridesmaid never a bride type of deal

Kisner can be an awesome 8’ in putter for sure. I also think his personality type is great for the Ryder Cup. But unfortunately his stats haven’t been that great of late and it’s just too much of a risk.

Will be casually rooting for the Euros

This is what I did last time.  Europe just seemed to have more like-able players in 2018.  This year USA replaced Reed, Bubba, Phil, Fowler, Webb, and Tiger with Xander, Collin, Scheffler, English, Cantlay, and Berger.  I used to not care for Cantlay, but that was all related to how long he took to pull the trigger on a shot.  We'll see who Europe ends up picking as to who I will be rooting for, but getting Reed, Bubba and Phil out of the group is definitely a plus as far as I am concerned.

Stricker just said that a player can be replaced, due to illness or injury, right up to the opening ceremony. So, I would bet, that with his injury, and COVID, there might be a few extra guys playing practice rounds up there.

Agree. And doesn’t hit it very far.

I can’t wrap my head around deciding every Ryder cup who you cheer for based on who is on the team and not your home country.

I am a proud American.  I have just always considered the Ryder cup more of a fun golf exhibition than something I should be Nationalistic about.  We live in a global world these days, and most of these Euro players have residences (and possibly even citizenships?) in the US.  I have no problem rooting for the more likeable / least unlikeable team.

I disagree, however if this is how you enjoy it. Have at it. Different strokes for different folks.

I would hope that that is the case. I'm not a huge fan of Na  but his play last week (not just then) was incredible and in his interview I really felt for him. I think he deserves a chance.

I think he could be an awesome team player.

Anyone buying that leaving Reed off was a tough call for Stricker. I think the pneumonia made it a really easy call for him. I don’t think there is anyway Brooks misses the cup. I just hope he isn’t paired with DJ again. Not a good pair in my opinion. I would like to see him abs Berger paired. I read both were on same team in college.

I'd take action on that bet, with an out (for both of us) if he plays but is still injured, because that'd be a testament to how selfish and whatnot he is.

He should miss, because he's injured. If he does the "play through injury" bullshit, it'll be selfish and jackassed.

Without getting political, I find jingoistic nationalism abhorrent

Not sure cheering for the team of players representing your country in a friendly competition meets this definition but you can root for whoever you want.   🤷‍♂️

There's also a level of absolutely delicious schadenfreude in watching Americans get wound so tight and lose.

He's just gonna get us a Sunday singles half when he WDs.

Agree 100 percent, but that is also very much in his character.

    • A truly awful story to be sure.  Part of this is the general disbelief that men can be the victims of sexual assault. That's a belief that goes well beyond the confines of the United Center or professional hockey. It made it easy for Blackhawk management to dismiss the allegations. When the guys at the top of an organization fail to do anything, nobody under them will rock the ship much. Especially not a ship that was headed toward a Stanley Cup victory. Kane and Toews comments reflect they didn't take it very seriously back then and that they still don't now.

    • Nope, not all conferences are created equal....  It should be teams in Power-5 conferences and a few independents if they play enough power-5 teams.  No non-power 5 conference is better than a power-5 conference.  The best team in the conference could miss out on the conference championship.  What if Ohio State, beat Wisconsin during the season. Wisconsin is 9-2 versus OSU 11-0 in a rematch in the conference championship game. Wisconsin wins, is Wisconsin the best team in the conference? At best, they are equal because they are 1-1 during the season. If you throw in conference record, it is OSU with 11-1 versus 10-2.  You should take the conference champion in each conference power-5 conference (5 teams), then for an 8-team playoff, the next best 3 teams. If a 12 team playoff, the next best 7 teams.   
    • Yeah, all of the interviews I’ve heard so far have seemed pretty shallow.  The Edmonton sports media is a joke at best, but at least they made Duncan Keith squirm for ten minutes plus.       Up next, coach Joel Quenelleville.  Good luck backtracking your way out of this one, guy.  
    • I'm a little confused as to what you propose as your format.  Is each player playing his own ball all the way to the hole, or are you doing some variation like a scramble or shamble?  How are you calculating team handicaps?  There might be some ways to work it out, but you'd have to start with those details first.
