It was Gardeck’s first sack since his senior year at Sioux Falls when he took down Augustana QB Gage McClanahan for a one-yard loss on 10/28/17.
• Gardeck added a second sack in the fourth quarter. With 2.0 sacks against the Jets, Gardeck now joins Chandler Jones (4x) and Terrell Suggs (1x) as the only Cardinals defenders in the last two seasons (2019-20) to record at least 2.0 sacks in a game.

2020.10.09 05:23 minamija Tattoos of Kelly Osbourne

Kelly Michelle Lee Osbourne, known primarily as the daughter of the popular and extravagant Ozzy, defined by many as "the godfather of heavy metal", and for her participation in the television drama The Osbournes, is an example of how one can love madly art tattoo for a certain period and then decide to downsize this passion.
The tattoos of Kelly Osbourne, daughter of the "prince of darkness" Ozzy, are a cult. Kelly showed a love for tattoos for a long time, during which time she got a considerable number of tattoos ( more than 15 ) imprinted on her body.

KELLY OSBOURNE'S TATTOOS: LOVE AND HATE

For some years, however, she has decided to remove at least part of it. Kelly claims she no longer feels the connection with some of her tattoos which, as she herself declares, were made in a period of her life marked by a great desire for rebellion: "They were a mistake, now I am a new woman compared to the past and I want my change to be tangible!".
To date we do not know how many tattoos Kelly has already eliminated, nor which ones she intends to remove in the future. But we know for sure that she has already experienced a few removal sessions and that one of her most famous tattoos has already been washed off: it is a mechanical piano, 70s style, which she had on her left forearm. Speaking of this tattoo, the lavender-haired lady was very honest in admitting that this subject never meant anything to her, as Kelly never even knew how to play that instrument.

GET SOME TATTOO DESIGNS:

MOON RABBIT BUNNY
MONOCHROME FLOWER
COLORED RABBIT BUNNY SET
COLORED CAT SET
After removing this first tattoo, Kelly posted some thoughts on laser practice for tattoo elimination on Facebook. She states that these are really painful sessions , that green seems to be the most difficult color to eliminate that for a good result, it is important to have good blood circulation. And that the after-effects and pain of the laser are comparable to those of a sunburn, at least for the three days following the session.

YOUTH TATTOOS

Among the various tattoos that Kelly got during her youth we find:
Even though Kelly Osbourne has started the long journey of removal it seems she can't stay away from tattoo shops; in fact, she recently revealed that she had a new tattoo: the writing "Stories " in typewriter, on the right side of the skull tattoo. Perhaps she has opted for this bizarre, but certainly painful, part of the body because once the haircut is changed it will remain completely hidden. And there will be no need to go to a surgeon to make this latest tattoo invisible.

He was even better on Sunday vs. Washington, throwing for 286 yards and a TD while rushing for 67 yards and two TDs on just eight carries. He is the first Cardinals QB with a passing and rushing TD in consecutive games since Jim Hart accomplished the feat in 1969.
• Through two games, Murray has thrown for 516 yards and two TDs while rushing for 158 yards and three TDs. He is the first QB in the Super Bowl era to pass for 500+ yards and rush for 150+ yards through the first two games of a season.
• Murray had TD runs of 14 and 21 yards against Washington on Sunday. He became the first Cardinals QB with multiple rushing TDs of 14+ yards in a game since Hall of Famer Charley Trippi (18 and 26 yards) against the Chicago Bears on 12/16/51 at Wrigley Field.
Murray is the first QB in NFL history to rush for 150+ yards and 3+ TDs in the first two games of a season. He is also the first Cardinals player in franchise history – regardless of position – to rush for 150+ yards and 3+ TDs in the first two games of a season.
• Despite having played in just 18 career games, Murray already owns five of the top-nine single-game rushing performances by a QB in franchise history.

2020.09.15 20:21 Arizona-Cardinals NOTES FROM THE CARDINALS 24-20 WIN AT SAN FRANCISCO (9/13/20)

The Cardinals defeated the defending NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers 24-20 in the season-opener at Levi’s Stadium on Sunday. With the victory, Arizona earned its first Week 1 win since 2015 and first Week 1 road victory since 2010.
• With the victory on Sunday, Arizona improved to 5-2 at Levi’s Stadium. The Cardinals also improved to 9-2 in their last 11 games against the 49ers.
• The Cardinals (who trailed 13-10 entering the fourth quarter) were one of six teams to come back to win after trailing in the fourth quarter on Kickoff Weekend (Chicago, Jacksonville, Las Vegas, the Los Angeles Chargers and Washington). That is the most fourth-quarter comeback victories on Kickoff Weekend since 2016 (nine teams). • Arizona trailed 10-0 early and entered the fourth quarter trailing 13-10 but went on to earn the comeback victory. In 2019, the Cardinals were 0-7-1 in games they trailed entering the fourth quarter. Prior to yesterday, the last time the Cardinals won a game in which they trailed entering the fourth quarter was on 10/28/18 vs. San Francisco (trailed 12-3 entering the fourth and won 18-15).
• The Cardinals comeback victory was the result of two long fourth quarter TD drives (94 and 75 yards). It marked the first time since 2016 (12/18 vs. New Orleans; 75 and 75 yards) that Arizona had multiple TD drives of 75+ yards in the fourth quarteOT of a game.

OFFENSE PUTS UP BIG NUMBERS IN WEEK 1

• The Cardinals finished Sunday’s game in San Francisco with 404 total net yards (180 rushing; 224 passing) against a 49ers defense that finished last season ranked #2 overall. It marks the fifth time Arizona reached 400+ total yards in 17 games under head coach Kliff Kingsbury. Arizona reached 400+ yards just once over the two seasons combined (2017-18) prior to Kingsbury’s arrival. • The Cardinals posted 404 total yards and 29 first downs against San Francisco. It marked just the fourth time in franchise history the team had 400+ total net yards and 25+ first downs in a season-opener.

WR DeAndre Hopkins had five receptions for 76 yards. • Despite two kneel downs for minus-9 yards on their final possession, the Cardinals rushed for 180 yards and two TDs on 36 carries (5.0 avg.) against the 49ers. With the victory, Arizona improved to 5-1 in games it rushes for 150+ yards under Kingsbury.

RUN GAME STARTS FAST IN 2020

DEFENSE MAKES A BIG STAND – TWICE

• The Cardinals offense posted eye-popping numbers in the victory over San Francisco, but it was the defense that made a pair of stands to change the momentum and ultimately seal the victory. • Trailing 10-7 early in the second quarter, San Francisco had a 4th-n-goal from inside the AZ one-yard line when LBs Devon Kennard and De’Vondre Campbell (both signed as free agents in the offseason) teamed up to stop 49ers RB Raheem Mostert on a run up the middle.
• With the Cardinals holding a 24-20 lead with under a minute remaining in the fourth quarter, San Francisco had the ball 3rd-n-5 at the AZ 16-yard line. QB Jimmy Garoppolo attempted a pair of passes to WR Trent Taylor: the third down attempt was batted down by second-year CB Byron Murphy Jr. in the end zone. The fourth down sideline pass was enough for a first down but was again batted down by a diving Murphy.
• Arizona’s defense held the 49ers to just two conversions on 11 third down attempts (18%) and also stopped San Francisco on both fourth down conversion attempts on Sunday. Yesterday’s game marked the second time in the last three games under defensive coordinator Vance Joseph that the Cardinals held an opponent to two or fewer conversions on third down (Seattle was 1-for-12 on third down in Week 16 last season).
• Dating back to the final four games of last season, Arizona’s defense under Joseph ranks:

The Cardinals scored a TD on the very next play on a pass from Kyler Murray to RB Chase Edmonds.
• Second-year DL Zach Allen, who missed the final 12 games of his rookie season (2019) due to injury, recorded two tackles, his first career sack, a tackle for loss and a QB hit on Sunday.
• The Cardinals signed DL Angelo Blackson last Tuesday (9/8) and five days later he recorded two tackles, a sack, a tackle for loss and two QB hits against the 49ers. It was the fourth full sack of his career, and first since Week 3 of the 2018 season as a member of the Texans.

2020.09.14 22:10 WhatMyHeartHeld Game Notes Week 1

The Cardinals defeated the defending NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers 24-20 in the season-opener at Levi’s Stadium on Sunday. With the victory, Arizona earned its first Week 1 win since 2015 and first Week 1 road victory since 2010.
• With the victory on Sunday, Arizona improved to 5-2 at Levi’s Stadium. The Cardinals also improved to 9-2 in their last 11 games against the 49ers.
• The Cardinals (who trailed 13-10 entering the fourth quarter) were one of six teams to come back to win after trailing in the fourth quarter on Kickoff Weekend (Chicago, Jacksonville, Las Vegas, the Los Angeles Chargers and Washington). That is the most fourth-quarter comeback victories on Kickoff Weekend since 2016 (nine teams).
• Arizona trailed 10-0 early and entered the fourth quarter trailing 13-10 but went on to earn the comeback victory. In 2019, the Cardinals were 0-7-1 in games they trailed entering the fourth quarter. Prior to yesterday, the last time the Cardinals won a game in which they trailed entering the fourth quarter was on 10/28/18 vs. San Francisco (trailed 12-3 entering the fourth and won 18-15).
• The Cardinals comeback victory was the result of two long fourth quarter TD drives (94 and 75 yards). It marked the first time since 2016 (12/18 vs. New Orleans; 75 and 75 yards) that Arizona had multiple TD drives of 75+ yards in the fourth quarteOT of a game.

OFFENSE PUTS UP BIG NUMBERS IN WEEK 1

• The Cardinals finished Sunday’s game in San Francisco with 404 total net yards (180 rushing; 224 passing) against a 49ers defense that finished last season ranked #2 overall. It marks the fifth time Arizona reached 400+ total yards in 17 games under head coach Kliff Kingsbury. Arizona reached 400+ yards just once over the two seasons combined (2017-18) prior to Kingsbury’s arrival.
• The Cardinals posted 404 total yards and 29 first downs against San Francisco. It marked just the fourth time in franchise history the team had 400+ total net yards and 25+ first downs in a season-opener.

Sunday’s win marked the first time since 2015 (12/6 at St. Louis; 524 yards; 29 1st downs) that the Cardinals had 400+ total yards and 29+ first downs in a game.
On their two fourth quarter TD drives, the Cardinals accounted for 23 plays, 172 yards and took up 10:23 in time of possession. On those two drives, QB Kyler Murray was 7-of-9 passing for 80 yards and added five rushes for 46 yards and a TD. WR DeAndre Hopkins had five receptions for 76 yards.
• Despite two kneel downs for minus-9 yards on their final possession, the Cardinals rushed for 180 yards and two TDs on 36 carries (5.0 avg.) against the 49ers. With the victory, Arizona improved to 5-1 in games it rushes for 150+ yards under Kingsbury.

RUN GAME STARTS FAST IN 2020

• Arizona had the NFL’s #10 ranked rushing attack last season, totaling 1,990 yards and 18 TDs on 396 attempts. The ground game got going quickly in yesterday’s season-opener, posting 180 yards and two TDs on 36 attempts (5.0 avg.) despite a pair of kneel downs for minus-9 yards to end the game.
• Sunday’s game marked the fourth time the Cardinals have rushed for 180+ yards in a game under Kingsbury. Arizona had just four such games in the six seasons combined (2013-18) prior to his arrival.
• The Cardinals 180 rushing yards represented the second-highest total in the NFL in Week 1.

• Arizona rushed for 13 first downs in the win over San Francisco yesterday. It marks the third time in the last four games the Cardinals have rushed for at least 12 first downs.

DEFENSE MAKES A BIG STAND – TWICE

• The Cardinals offense posted eye-popping numbers in the victory over San Francisco, but it was the defense that made a pair of stands to change the momentum and ultimately seal the victory. • Trailing 10-7 early in the second quarter, San Francisco had a 4th-n-goal from inside the AZ one-yard line when LBs Devon Kennard and De’Vondre Campbell (both signed as free agents in the offseason) teamed up to stop 49ers RB Raheem Mostert on a run up the middle.
• With the Cardinals holding a 24-20 lead with under a minute remaining in the fourth quarter, San Francisco had the ball 3rd-n-5 at the AZ 16-yard line. QB Jimmy Garoppolo attempted a pair of passes to WR Trent Taylor: the third down attempt was batted down by second-year CB Byron Murphy Jr. in the end zone. The fourth down sideline pass was enough for a first down but was again batted down by a diving Murphy.
• Arizona’s defense held the 49ers to just two conversions on 11 third down attempts (18%) and also stopped San Francisco on both fourth down conversion attempts on Sunday. Yesterday’s game marked the second time in the last three games under defensive coordinator Vance Joseph that the Cardinals held an opponent to two or fewer conversions on third down (Seattle was 1-for-12 on third down in Week 16 last season).
• Dating back to the final four games of last season, Arizona’s defense under Joseph ranks:

OTHER WEEK 1 NOTES

• Third-year LB Ezekiel Turner – a PFWA All-Rookie pick as a special teamer in 2018 – made one of the biggest plays on the game on Sunday. He set up the Cardinals first TD of the game when he blocked a 49ers punt in the first quarter which was recovered by LB Dennis Gardeck and returned to the SF 10-yard line. The Cardinals scored a TD on the very next play on a pass from Kyler Murray to RB Chase Edmonds.
• Second-year DL Zach Allen, who missed the final 12 games of his rookie season (2019) due to injury, recorded two tackles, his first career sack, a tackle for loss and a QB hit on Sunday.
• The Cardinals signed DL Angelo Blackson last Tuesday (9/8) and five days later he recorded two tackles, a sack, a tackle for loss and two QB hits against the 49ers. It was the fourth full sack of his career, and first since Week 3 of the 2018 season as a member of the Texans.

2020.08.21 17:58 ikarus_rl EU Grid Team Tier List!

Like yesterday, this is a pretty long post. There isn’t a TL;DR, but feel free to skip all the words I wrote, look at my rankings, and tell me why I’m dumb. Enough of you responded yesterday to make me feel like doing EU would be worth the time.
Before week three of the European region Grid competition, I thought it may be a fun exercise to take stock of the 16 competing teams and arrange them into tiers. Teams within a tier are relatively interchangeable, though I did order them based on my perception of their quality. Jumps between tiers are more significant and are my attempts at highlighting the divides in the region. I took into account Fall Regional 1 results, Grid results for the first two weeks, offseason performance, and historical success, in that order. Numbers in parentheses represent Grid points accumulated through two weeks.
Tier 1: Wait, it’s all Vitality?
  1. Renault Vitality (210)
Always has been. They played well during the offseason. Really well. They made the semifinal of the first Regional and lost to an out-of-their-mind BDS team. They are top four in the EU Grid despite Alpha54 being sick last week. Until Kaydop, FairyPeak!, and Alpha stop being so good, let’s just assume they’re good. Side note: If they win a World Championship with this roster, can we please start calling Yanis “Alpha54” Champenois Johnny Champaign? Please? Someone make this happen.
Tier 2: Contenders to the Throne
  1. Team BDS (90)
  2. Oxygen Esports (250)
This tier could subsume tier three and still feel pretty correct, but I’m going to make the same distinction here that I made with tier one and two for North America yesterday. These are the teams (non-Vitality division) that have a very real shot at walking out of the Fall split as the region’s absolute best.
BDS to this point feels very much like Savage! did when they emerged from RLRS. They’re fast, they’re wildly talented, and they show no fear. Having Extra fall into their lap has been nothing short of revelatory. He was the best player for an underwhelming AS Monaco squad in RLCS 9, and he’s slotted comfortably alongside M0nkey M00n and MaRc_By_8. This is a team that seems destined for Worlds, and the large head start they earned on points by virtue of winning the first Fall Regional could prove to be the difference.
Oxygen Esports have had almost inverse results to BDS this season. While they struggled mightily in the first Regional, failing to make it out of stage one, they’ve cleaned up well in the Grid with one 2nd and one 3rd/4th finish. The addition of AztraL, in my estimation, will be the most impactful change to this region during the whole of RLCS X barring a crazy trade window acquisition. It took him a bit to meld properly with his old Dignitas team, but once he hit his stride AztraL looked like maybe the most well-rounded player in the world; I expect a similar qualitative jump for Oxygen once they normalize. Feel free to skip this part if you don’t want to read about someone defending him, but the treatment AztraL endured after his loss in Salt Mine 2 was shameful. He’s young, wildly talented, and on a stage people his age rarely stand on. If his attitude is abrasive, it’s okay to dislike him; that doesn’t make it acceptable to go Lord of the Flies on his stream. Let’s work to keep our community inclusive and wholesome.
Tier 3: Something is Brewing, Give it Time
  1. Top Blokes (70)
  2. Dignitas (40)
  3. Guild Esports (60)
Each of these teams made a major acquisition of a 1’s phenom over the offseason. They also have each played well below expectations during the first two weeks of the Grid after all three made it to the final day of Fall Regional 1. In the right light, any of these squads could belong in tier two; my long-range season-end estimation is that one of these three ends up in tier two while one misses worlds (and therefore finishes outside the top six) altogether.
Top Blokes, formerly Veloce, ended a two-season run of being dreadfully boring by adding Archie, who decided that playing like a proper rookie and letting his veteran teammates helm the offense was less fun than scoring eleven(!) goals against a standout Magnifico team (who unfortunately isn’t in the Grid, and therefore not on this list) in a six game series. Kassio and FlamE look just as good as they did under Veloce, but with the added dynamism of Archie this team is playing to win rather than not to lose.
Losing a player as dominating as AztraL should be enough to leave a team in shambles. ViolentPanda, in his quest to overtake paschy90 as perhaps the most heralded talent scout in league history, felt otherwise when he brought Joreuz into the fold. If the success this team showed with helping AztraL develop can be replicated, Dignitas will not go quietly into the night. A word of caution, though, for those who don’t remember. This team struggled to a 4-3, 5th place record during RLCS 8 league play before finding their run of form last season. Joe Reyes will mature into a solid, probably outstanding, player, but it doesn’t always happen overnight.
What better way to enter the e-sports scene than by signing two players with good synergy to suit up alongside one of the most recognizable names in the game? ThO., noly , and Scrub Killa were expected to play with each other this season under the Team Singularity banner, but behind-the-scenes changes led to the David Beckham-backed Guild Esports buying out the former two and signing Scrub. After a delightful team announcement video, Guild has fared moderately. They made the final day of the first Regional and have picked up a couple series wins in the Grid. What makes their losses harder to bear, however, is that they’ve lost to so many different teams. Vitality, BDS, Triple Trouble, Top Blokes, and Giants have each beaten them at least once. Those results are worrisome, as finding wins against big teams is basically the only way to become a big team yourself. When ThO. and noly are together on offense, they look good. When Scrub does Scrub things, they look good. When Guild must act as a cohesive three-man unit? Losses seem to follow.
Tier 4: The Messy Middle
  1. Solary (110)
  2. Giants Gaming (301)
  3. Triple Trouble (261)
  4. Endpoint (160)
  5. Liquid (120)
All the teams in this tier did at least one of the following things: obtained a top eight finish in the Regional tournament two weeks ago, finished top four in one of the first two weeks of the grid, or were signed by Team Liquid.
Solary don’t yet have a top of the table finish in the Grid, nor did they vastly outperform other members of this tier in the first Regional tournament. My reason for putting them this high, then? Of their losses so far (two in each week of the Grid, 3 in the Regional) only one has come from a team below them on the list, and that was a red hot Vodaphone Giants team who beat them in seven games before giving Renault Vitality a similar treatment. While there was mild consternation at the decision to drop Meloshisu for Yukiss prior to the season start, Solary is proving their worth at the highest level of competition.
If it wasn’t for a disappointing end to the final season of RLRS, Giants Gaming wouldn’t feel like a surprising team. When they were representing RCD Espanyol, this team was known as a fast-paced juggernaut in their division; now that they’re playing alongside the top teams of the region, they’re proving to be a fast-paced juggernaut in any division. With one 1st and one 3rd/4th finish in the Grid to go alongside their top 8 placement in Fall Regional 1, Giants are quickly making a case to be placed higher on this list. Consistency will be key, though.
What a difference a year can make. Coming off a top eight finish at the RLCS Season 7 finals, Triple Trouble did what any up-and-coming sensation would do. They fractured entirely and all wound up on different squads. When the dust settled, Tadpole found himself without teammates or an RLCS spot. After RLCS Season 8, while Tadpole toiled in the background, Bluey was awarded a well-deserved Region MVP award and was summarily dismissed from his own feel-good FC Barcelona squad. The two disenfranchised players joined forces during the Season 9 RLRS to unfortunately mixed results. Once again, they showed their mettle by sticking together, finding the right third in Calix, and not only qualifying for RLCS X Regionals, but winning the first week of the Grid to boot. Love them or leave them, Triple Trouble is a team that has earned my respect.
Looking at other power rankings and the general vibe around Endpoint there seems to be the constant question of how good this team is. Are they middling in the field of 16? Will they climb? Will they fall toward the bottom? Maybe it’s the constant cloud of smoke following the wreckage Virtuoso has wrought, but a clear view is hard to find. The one definite answer is that this team, with Metsanauris table-setting, Virtuoso rampaging, and RelatingWave (who somehow seems like the least talked about member of this team despite his brilliance) filling the gaps, is very likely to stick around through all three splits of RLCS X.
Team Liquid should be better. There is no simpler way to say it. After the strange loss of Scrub Killa during the latter half of RLCS 9, then-Mousesports found success with super-sub Arju to finish the season strong. Disappointing offseason results and AztraL’s surprising move to Oxygen created the opening for Fruity to join the team. They immediately placed 2nd in the Eurocup 10K, looking primed for success. Then the season started, and they fell out of the Regional on day 1. Their two top-8 finishes in the Grid are, frankly, not strong enough results for this team to be let off the hook. They have two weeks (today included) of Grid competition before the next Regional begins – a strong result in either or both will go a long way toward reestablishing Liquid as a powerhouse squad.
Tier 5: What the Hell is Barcelona?
  1. FC Barcelona (20)
Barcelona may be the single most confounding team in either main region of RLCS X. Ronaky is a brilliant striker, casually bombing opposing nets with fervor. Deevo had a game last season with somewhere in the realm of a million saves. Itachi, despite being “new” to RLCS, qualified for Season 3 before losing eligibility on account of living in Moracco; the fact he has remained an RLCS caliber player for 6 seasons without the ability to compete is telling enough – he is the real deal. That said, why aren’t they better? I feel like a broken record, but maybe the reason is as simple as roster changes needing a proper amount of time to solidify. The other option? EU is a deep region; over the nine-month slog of RLCS X, teams are going to fall out. FCB may find their backs against the wall soon if they don’t find results.
Tier 6: At Least We’re Here
  1. Team Singularity (90)
  2. Monkeys (40)
  3. Libertas (60)
  4. Chalked (20)
The final tier of the EU Grid all has one unfortunate commonality: they should be the odds-on favorites to lose their Grid spots at the end of this Split. Maybe this is too blunt, but the fact remains that of the sixteen teams, ten stay while six must go back through qualifications. Currently, the bottom eight teams are, from last to ninth, FCB, Chalked, Monkeys, Dignitas, Libertas, Guild, Top Blokes, and Singularity. It is a fair estimation that Dig, Guild, and Blokes will rise, and Barcelona is easily top 10 when they perform. Asking any of these four to out-perform not just this group, but three additional teams over the remaining seven weeks is a bleak proposition.
Singularity was dealt a rough hand. Godsmilla was benched (yay?) in favor of Scrub Killa, who was never officially signed due to Guild’s buyout of the previous team. Upon his unbenching, he brought in hibbs and Breezi to qualify for RLCS X. Somewhat surprisingly, they not only qualified for Regionals, they took the final Grid spot (open after AS Monaco dissolved) as well. Their first two weeks of Grid play were okay, and they played a strong Regional, but I can’t shake the feeling that the longer the season goes, the further away the top ten or so teams will pull from the field. Singularity are a good, not great, team in a region overflowing with talent.
Monkeys are a team accustomed to making big underdog runs (see: Team Echo Zulu DreamHack Leipzig) and showed during last season’s RLRS that they can play. Under Notorious Legion Tahz and Mittaen went 5-4, dropping one game across their five wins and taking two of their losses to game five. They brought in Eekso and super-sub Arju for RLCS X, but have yet to find a quality win outside of beating Top Blokes in the first week of the Grid. To date, that is their only Grid win. Compounding this, they failed to beat a single upper-echelon team in the Regional other than an ice-cold Liquid squad. No other team they defeated is above them on this list.
Libertas have defeated Opp Block and FC Barcelona (twice) this season. That’s the list. Two of their three wins went to game five, and they’ve failed to win more than one game in any of their seven losses, three of them sweeps. It isn’t fun to beat up on a team, but there aren’t many positives here.
Which leads us to Chalked. I don’t expect many people are surprised that a team of mostly-retired players who dusted off their controllers for one last run is struggling to compete. All three of these guys are legends of the scene and I wish each of them well. But they’ve won a single series so far out of eight, against The Last Resort in the first Regional. For the next seven weeks, take some time to appreciate Mognus, al0t, and remkoe; just don’t expect to see them much after that.
So there you have it, folks. My thoughts on the EU side of the table. Thoughts? Comments? Hate mail? If today gets around as much traction as yesterday, I will probably look at releasing a new tier list in the aftermath of each Regional tournament; any more frequently and it is basically a power ranking, which isn’t my intent. That said, is there room in the scene for another source of rankings? A shorter, more week-to-week focused write-up would be fun to do, if the audience exists. Thanks again for stopping by!

This spike in crime is no doubt due in part to the quarantine and economic stress related to it. However, there is another aspect that people don't like talking about. That is the \"Ferguson effect\". When police in general are under sweeping suspicion of racism due to highly publicized anecdotes about police shootings of black people, they tend to back off of proactive policing, not wanting to risk their jobs or reputations. There is [some social science](https://www.nber.org/papers/w22399) data [which suggests](https://amstat.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/2330443X.2019.1704330) that [police do not shoot blacks](https://www.aeaweb.org/articles?id=10.1257/pandp.20191028) at rates [disproportionate to their](https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/1948550618775108) involvement in violent crime, and in fact, sometimes less. `Harvard Professor Roland Fryer [just released a (non-peer reviewed) study](https://www.nber.org/papers/w27324.pdf) providing evidence that the Ferguson effect is real. What he found is that in 22 cases of police department investigations triggered by the weight of evidence showing that the department was poorly run, crime was actually reduced, and an average of 61 lives were saved in the next 24 months.` However, in five cases of departments investigated after a single high-profile incident (Freddie Gray, Laquan McDonald, Timothy Thomas, Tyisha Miller, and Michael Brown), crime went up, and an average of 179 more lives were lost in the next 24 months. `Police also unjustly kill white people, but those don't fit into a narrative about American racism. I agree that police are heavy-handed in general, and that police brutality is a problem. However, we tend to assume that racial animus is involved when black people are killed, even when there is little actual evidence of that. I also know for a fact that there are racist officers. However, how can we reduce racial tension and tackle problems when we rely on a narrative that is shown to be false and exaggerated?` TL;DR - Police back off due to suspicion of racism over anecdotes, criminals are emboldened.

Granted. For awhile there are jokes in the media before the novelty dies down and the various associated fetishes evolve. People seem mostly happier as the general state of everyone's sex lives improves. You notice your mom has started buying a lot of fresh produce and sugary foods, but whatever, your parents have needs too and the new spring in their step is cute. `Your father is extra happy, as you might imagine. His new extra-wide grin quickly becomes a personality staple. The Christmas gifts get better and he doubles down on his woodworking hobby. With confidence he does something he'd always want to do: quit his job and open a bakery. Jack's Frost quickly becomes the talk of the town. You and your siblings and cousins begin working for the company. Family wealth comes easy, and times are good. All because your father is getting more frequent bjs.` Over time, the extended family moves to your town to take up lucrative positions within the supply chain. As your prestige builds, you begin to feel powerful. Your father, who spent long days with your mother or in front of the oven, mostly lets his family run the business while he bakes cupcakes for the entire family. Each cupcake is decorated to the liking of each family member. The time your father spends baking makes him a beloved yet diminishing family figure. As he ages, your siblings begin vying for his baking empire. `Finally comes the night everyone has anticipated: your father plans to announce his successor at his retirement party. This catered event features a buffet of your father's finest work. A part of you wonders, once he's gone, if the brand's creativity will depart with him. Blackmail and backstabbing are rampant among your siblings. It's clear the announcement will rock the family and rent it apart. The plotting is put on hold and your siblings' plastic smiles snap into place as your father steps up to the podium. He clears his throat and says \"the conniving den of weasels that is my family shut me out of the business I built on my hands and knees using these two hands. The business will be dissolved by the feds because the secret flavoring ingredient is my jizz. Yes, my glazes and jellies and custards are entirely jizz-based.\" Then he runs out of the house, grabs hold of a rope ladder descending from a helicopter, and is never heard from again. The money he didn't drain from the business is not nearly enough for the needed legal expenses. Those in your family that avoid prison become destitute, as your father has placed dozens of videos of your mother blowing him on the hard drives of your computer and all your extended family, linking them to his crimes. The cloud backups randomly play at inopportune times. You might have narrowly escaped prison, but you can describe your father's junk and have evaluated your mother's technique and enthusiasm. Your father accidentally invents an entirely new pornhub category called Spermy Todd, which annoys you because his name isn't Todd. It isn't Jack, either. It's Rod.` But at least everyone still has their flavored bjs.

Cultural Reboot `Manchester United are on the right path despite what the media, the fans, the league table and the general public would have you believe. The term “Cultural Reboot” has been used by Ole Solskjaer since his appointment at the club - what does that actually mean? In football terms it simply means that the club needs to change the way it works and operates. If this term could be used for a small business it would be efficient to close the business short term, make all staff redundant, potentially rebrand and hire staff that would better suit the new image of itself. Of course, you cannot do that to a football club, not least the size of a club like Manchester United.` `So what does Solskjaer mean in his take on the term? It simply means that Manchester United in the last 6-years have spent big money, big wages on a merry-go-round list of previous manager demands all aimed towards immediate success - which hasn’t worked. It’s cost the club close to a billion pounds in player transfers, three failed managerial appointments all of which had the best intentions of taking Manchester United back to the top of the tree. In Solskjaer’ eyes, the fabric of what made Manchester United a dynasty and a world force has long been lost in amongst this expenditure.` `When he took over on a caretaker basis Utd went on an incredible run, some people put this down to a regular honeymoon period as most new appointments provide the data to back this up but in my view I think there’s a little more to it simply being a honeymoon period. The players ran further, hustled harder, competed in every area of the pitch and out-worked teams - this is Manchester United. I was fortunate enough to witness the change that sacked big Ron and appointed Sir, Alex. I saw the cultural reboot at the club which was the basis for long-standing success. Sir, Alex starting selling seasoned pros like Paul McGrath Jesper Olsen and Peter Barnes. Fergie starting investing in youth almost immediately, signing a young Ryan Giggs, David Beckham to early youth teams for development. Sir Alex wanted to mould the future of the club by teaching young players what it means to play for Utd and that they were the future provided they had 100% commitment to being a fabric of the club and over their years they learned that in order to make it here you had to work harder than everyone else, want it more. Sir Alex, culturally rebooted Manchester United from alcoholic journeymen to hungry, hard working leave everything on the pitch superstars which would filter through the next group of youth products and thus changing the ethos of the club resulting in sustained success.` Ole is in the process of culturally rebooting Manchester United in a very similar way to Sir Alex did. He’s removed the high earners, he’s refused bumper multi-year contracts to over-30’s and is bringing through whatever youth talent we currently have. Kids listen, they want to play and they’re easy to mould. Once you have their commitment to the cause you have longevity in that role, you don’t need to overpay in contracts and you have a role model for the next batch of youth 10-years down the line. `When Ole smiles into the camera at press conferences he means it. Why wouldn’t he be happy? He has very impressionable young players, he doesn’t have conflict from ageing players demanding immediate success or more money (There’s probably one left in this category that’s Pogba), his team is competing despite being so young and they’re running through walls for him and more importantly for the shirt on their backs. He can see what the next few years of this vision is and it’s the building blocks for sustained success in much the same vein as Sir Alex once did. Ole doesn’t want big time charlies in his squad (Paul Ince, David Beckham, Lee Sharpe / Lukaku, Sanchez, Pogba) he wants warriors and influencers (Roy Keane, Eric Cantona, Mark Hughes / Rashford, McTominay, Maguire).` We can all argue that the board aren’t supporting him and their incompetence (different argument) but I think Ole is having a big influence in this and is being extremely careful with his targets which is why you won’t see Edinson Cavani or any other big name that thinks they’re bigger than the club - you can dismiss these almost out of hand immediately. £30m for a 16-year-old who is best in class for age? Absolutely what Ole wants and what Sir Alex wanted before him. If you think of it this way then it’s not then surprising that we have been linked with virtually every young English player that is showing potential because this is all part of the cultural reboot that we needed. We have invested heavily in academy players recently which don’t get enough love around here because we’re desperate for first team investment. What we’re not realising is if we heavily invest and rush to compete and challenge right away then the culture will never change. `When you have the likes of Brandon Williams, Scott McTominay, Marcus Rashford, Fred, Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Daniel James running through walls and through injuries for the shirt you have successfully changed the culture of the club. You do however need to supplement that ethos with fairy dust and luxury pieces - the ready made quality that you’re missing from a group that works harder than anyone else. Bruno Fernandes looks to be that type of player Ole has identified - not a big time charlie, works incredibly hard for a team he really doesn’t want to be a part of, especially since the training ground assault from their fans, modest wage and desperate to buy in to the new image of Manchester United - this is key. Way back during the ‘90’s and 2000’s you had to be a certain type of player to play for Man Utd. You didn’t just have to be good enough, you had to buy in to the culture and be prepared to work harder than anyone for your shirt, the club, the history and the fans.` We all love Patrice Evra and Rio Ferdinand because they bleed the club, even now - why is that? What is it about the club that makes them feel so strongly this way? They were bought to play for this club when the culture was set in stone, they bought into the ethos and the history of what it takes to be a Utd player, they lived it - it was their life - Manchester United was a way of life. The last 7-years we’ve lost that until Ole arrived. Rashford is living Man Utd, McTominay is living Man Utd and our transfer targets also need to live Man Utd. `This process cannot be rushed, unfortunately but it will ultimately reward itself with sustained success down the line which is always better than short term investment for short term and short-lived success. Ole Solskjaer is doing the right thing, he’s the right man to do it because he’s brave enough to do it just like Sir Alex was in 1986.` Stand by your manager, this one cares and he’s doing the right thing. The quality will come but like Ole says: “Will buy if the right ones become available”. ` Be patient - it’ll be worth it. Let’s get behind the boys and smash Burnley tonight.`

2020.07.31 17:44 JeffreyBoswell NFL 2020: The Year In Preview

* Myles Garrett and former New Orleans Saint Kyle Turley meet for a charity helmet-removal ceremony on November 14th, the anniversary of Garrett's incident with Mason Rudolph. The event, dubbed "The Great American NFL Jerk-Off," raises $250,000 for charity.
* After 149 receptions in 2019, the Saints Michael Thomas one-ups himself, posting 150 catches, 79 more than Miami's DeVante Parker. Thomas then tweets at Parker: "Congratulations! You made the 'All Pronoun Team,' because no one knows your name. #He.'"
* DeAndre Hopkins explodes to start the season, with 32 receptions, 396 receiving yards, and 6 touchdowns in his first four games. Asked what the key to his amazing success is, Hopkins replies, "Miles and miles of separation ... from Bill O'Brien."
* Philip Rivers has the second-most famous surgery for a Colts quarterback when he undergoes a vasectomy in October. In his next game back on October 18 versus the Jets, Rivers shoots blanks in the first quarter, going 0-7.
Rivers bounces back the following week, when he and his wife announce that they're expecting their 10th child in July.
On the year, Rivers is efficient and limits his interceptions as the Colts ride the league's best rushing game and a strong defense to the AFC South title.
* In his first game as a Falcon, Todd Gurley rushes for 11 yards on 8 carries and 4 touchdowns, all 1-yard touchdown runs, as Atlanta beats Carolina, 31-24.
A knee injury sidelines Gurley in Week 4, an ailment which never fully heals. Gurley ultimately plays in only 7 games, and leads the league in touches, from the medical staff.
* Jameis Winston cuts his interception total from 30 in 2019 to 17 in 2020. Winston attributes the vast improvement not only to clearer vision due to Lasik surgery, but also to attempting only 34 passes as the backup to Drew Brees.
The Saints finish the season 12-4, one game ahead of the 11-5 Buccaneers, and beat the Buccaneers in the NFC Championship Game.
* The Las Vegas Raiders christen Allegiant Stadium on opening day as former Raider legend Sebastian Janikowski serves as Master of Ceremonies. After ceremoniously breaking a bottle of Dom Perignon on the stadium's facade, Janikowski opens another bottle and offers glasses of champagne to each of the 32 Raiderettes, who all unanimously decline to drink.
The Raiders are toast in their opener, as the Saints crush them, 31-12.
* On opening day against the visiting Chargers, a sluggish Joe Burrow tosses 4 interceptions, is sacked 5 times, and vomits on the field in the third quarter. In the post-game press conference, Burrow apologizes for his performance, and promises to learn from his mistakes, and swears he'll never spend another Saturday night with Pacman Jones.
On the season, Burrow passes for 3,756 yards and 4 touchdowns with 16 interceptions, and the Bengals finish 3-13, last in the AFC North.
* After re-aggravating a back injury on October 4th, Rob Gronkowski announces his retirement. Just two days later, Gronk agrees to terms to host two new television shows during fall sweeps, Discovery Channel's "The Science of Drinking Games," and MTV's "Celebrity Sack Tap."
* On November 1st, with the Packers holding a 10-point lead over the visiting Vikings with 7 seconds left and with possession, a heartbroken Aaron Rodgers takes a knee, and proposes to former girlfriend Danica Patrick. In a touching twist, Brett Favre rolls up in a golf cart and presents the band, a green opal set in a 100% copper ring, as well as a Copper Fit wedding gown.
Patrick declines the offer via Twitter, and later reveals she left Rodgers for David Spade.
Rodgers leads the Packers to a second-place finish in the NFC North and a wild card berth in the playoffs.
* In November, Christian McCaffrey opens a nightclub in downtown Charlotte called "Run CMCBGB's WWJD," a venue that offers Christian rock, world-class atmosphere, and exotic VIP lounges, all in an alcohol-free environment. The club shutters its doors in December due to lack of interest.
McCaffrey is all business on the field, and leads the NFL in touches for the second consecutive year, with 399, and later pens a book chronicling his 2020 season, titled "Just Give Me the Darn Ball."
* ESPN's 2021 "Body" issue breaks new ground, featuring not athletes, but the equipment that trains them. Not surprisingly, football's "Jugs Machine" lands the coveted cover spot.
* Cam Newton easily wins the starting quarterback job in New England and dominates in the Patriots first four games. Newton enters the Week 5 game against the visiting Broncos with 4 rushing touchdowns and 7 passing scores, but literally loses his "s," crapping his pants when he sees Von Miller across the line.
Amazingly, the incident leads to an endorsement deal with Nautica's fashion sleepwear, in which Newton appears in print ads saying, "When you're pooped and need a change, try Nautica pajamas."
* On his first two rush attempts as a Bronco, Melvin Gordon fumbles, and the "Melvin Gordon II" memes are born, such as "Time II Bench Melvin Gordon," "Dos Ickies," "II Bad," "All II Often," and "Boyz II Bench."
Gordon's ball-handling struggles continue into October, but he eventually turns things around, thanks to the help of a clinic of hypnotists, whom Gordon refers to as his "Dream Team."
Gordon finishes the season with 799 yards on the ground and 450 receiving yards with 7 total touchdowns.
* The Seahawks visit the Rams on November 15th, and Jalen Ramsey and Jamal Adams convene at midfield prior to kickoff. The two exchange pleasantries and discuss plans to co-write a book tentatively titled "How to Alienate Friends, Influence Public Opinion, Be the Walking Definition of 'Disgruntled' and Force a Trade."
In a Week 14 contest versus the visiting Jets, Seattle defeats Adams' former team 27-13. Adams has 2 interceptions, but complains he could have played better.
* Bears legends Mike Ditka and Willie Gault team up to promote American Home Equity Bank & Semi-trust's "Double Reverse Mortgage," which encourages elderly Bears fans to "live fast, die soon."
Chicago's on-the-field product is just as untrustworthy, and a 2-5 start results in the firing of Matt Nagy on October 27th. Ditka is briefly considered for the job along with Bob Swerski, but the assignment ultimately goes to defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano, who leads the Bears to a 7-9 finish.
* With his signature blond hair back, Odell Beckham, Jr. announces the "Blond Ambition Tour 2020." Beckham later appears on the cover of Vogue, then completes the hat trick when he reveals that he is dating Madonna.
Beckham finishes the season with 87 receptions for 1,234 yards and 10 touchdowns, while the Browns finish 9-7, behind the Ravens and Steelers in the AFC North.
* Attendance is Los Angeles for the Chargers first four home games is abysmal, with attendance averaging around 30,000 in SoFi Stadium, which seats 70,000. Many attribute it to the unwillingness of San Diego and surrounding area residents to travel to Los Angeles, a phenomenon called "SoCal Distancing."
The Chargers struggle on the field also, finishing in a tie for last in the AFC West with the Raiders at 6-10.
* Patrick Mahomes purchases an island in the Lesser Antilles on September 17th to celebrate his 25th birthday. With a massive $477 million contract under his belt, Mahomes christens the getaway "Treasure Island," and posts a Gilligan's Island-themed pic on Twitter showing Mahomes as Gilligan and Andy Reid as the Skipper.
Mahomes passes for 4,788 yards and 42 touchdowns and the Chiefs repeat as Super Bowl champions when they defeat the Saints, 31-27.
* After seeing the 2010 movie Inception, Dallas owner Jerry Jones asks his R&D department to inquire into the possibility of "planting a seed in the head of that agent of Dak Prescott's."
Jones is talked out of the scheme and into "Plan B," which is merely receiving an 8x10 signed photograph of Leonardo DiCaprio.
* Former Carolina and Dallas defensive end Greg Hardy is victimized by an elaborate prank organized by Sasha Baron Cohen. In the scheme, Cohen, posing as a UFC matchmaker named "Joo Shih Tzu," convinces Hardy to participate in the organization's first inter-gender contest, to take place at UFC 253 in Las Vegas against a female opponent to be named later. Hardy readily accepts before Cohen reveals the ruse, sending Hardy into a frenzy.
* Drew Brees finally "takes a knee," albeit just to the groin, when he appears as a guest on MTV's "Johnny Knoxville's Jackass NFL Punt, Pass, and Kick in the Balls Special." The show airs as part of the network's "Football is Back" programming on September 9th, sandwiched between 12 hours of "Ridiculousness."
* In the Packers home opener against the Lions on September 20, Aaron Rodgers connects with DaVante Adams on a 15-yard TD pass late in the first quarter. Adams then celebrates with a Lambeau Leap into the empty stands and bangs his head on an empty seat. Adams enters the NFL's concussion protocol, while the Packers secure a federal loan to outfit the end zone seats with NASCAR's "SAFER Barrier."
* Gardner Minshew II lights up the Bengals in Week 4 for 450 yards passing and 5 TD passes in a 42-17 Jags rout. Minshew is named AFC Offensive Player of the Week, and honor topped just a day later when Minshew is tapped for the role of Bo Darville in Smokey and the Bandit 4.
* Washington stuns the Cowboys, 24-23, on Thanksgiving, led by 3 TD scores, 2 on the ground, from Dwayne Haskins. Haskins celebrates back in D.C. on Friday night, a little too hard, and is cited for urinating in public, leading to the embarrassing headline "Dwayne Vein Drain" in The Washington Post.

Reasons Why I Still Play FM08 – The First Five Years (Year 1, Part 2)
WARNING: VERY LONG POST. READ AT YOUR OWN LEISURE.

https://preview.redd.it/byiz3alsqfd51.png?width=616&format=png&auto=webp&s=6b2b46167c4e53216c515a2601366a0f68e39555
NB: This is part TWO of a TWO-part series. If you haven’t yet read part ONE, please click here.
Sunday 1st June 2008
The leagues are complete, the European competitions are decided, it’s time to see the damage done.
Premier League
We’ll start with the Premier League and, as expected, Man Utd held on to their strong advantage to retain the title, the top-scoring Reds finishing 1 goal and 6 points ahead of Arsenal. Liverpool and Man City claim the remaining Champions League places, whilst Portsmouth finished a point ahead of Everton to claim the first available UEFA Cup place.
Fulham would’ve needed a mathematical miracle to have survived relegation, and Middlesbrough were already related going into the final day so a draw with Wigan meant little to them, but Wigan were already safe thanks in part to what was essentially a relegation play-off match between Birmingham and Sunderland. A win for either team would see them survive but a draw would not be enough for Sunderland.
David Connolly stepped up and scored a highly contentious goal for Sunderland in a tightly contested game. Birmingham City couldn’t believe what they believed was an offside goal was allowed to stand and replays have since shown that they may have had every right to feel aggrieved about that goal. They did not, however, do enough to get back into the match and although an equaliser would’ve seen them survive, they could not muster one and now drop down into the Championship.
Kevin Doyle has the last laugh in his ongoing feud with Leroy, pipping him to the Golden Boot for Reading with 25 goals to Lita’s 24. Andy Johnson rounds off the top 3 with 23 goals for Everton. Cani’s 16 assists see him take the non-existent playmaker of the year award, 3 clear of John Carew. I shall forever call this the Playmaker Award now.
The league table is as follows:

https://preview.redd.it/a1ngygktqfd51.png?width=844&format=png&auto=webp&s=5c2369d745ec5ef9adca0149a6452b39ac24ba94
Overachievers: Man City, Derby County, West Ham
Underachievers: Tottenham, Chelsea, Bolton, Middlesbrough
West Ham seal European football through the Euro Vase, aka Intertoto Cup, by virtue of the fact that apparently neither Everton or Chelsea, nor Blackburn bothered to apply.
As we know, Portsmouth secured European football through 5th place but wait… Newcastle and Derby are also in Europe?!
This can only mean one thing…
FA Cup
Derby comfortably defeated Blackburn 3-1 at Wembley while Newcastle played out a dramatic 3-3 draw with Portsmouth. The game would be settled by penalties, with Portsmouth scoring their first 2 and Newcastle missing them both. Nerves got the better of the Pompey players as Newcastle scored their next 3 and Portsmouth missed all of them. Incredible scenes in the capital.

https://preview.redd.it/8ijwjicuqfd51.png?width=841&format=png&auto=webp&s=f088b1a22b1aa57508725805c0cf6cc968b82901
Not to be outdone, Derby and Newcastle would contest a fierce final themselves. James Milner wins the header from the goalkeeper’s free kick to nod down to Barton who returns a through ball for Milner to slot home in the 22nd minute. However, Derby would hit back on the brink of half-time, in part thanks for a huge stroke of good fortune: David Jones’ free kick on the edge of the box taking a huge deflection off the wall to wrong-foot Shay Given.
Deadlocked at 90 minutes, the game moved into extra time. More free kick fortune for Derby as Ulrik Yttergård Jenssen’s freekick deflects off the wall as well and into the path of Daniel Fredheim Holm who lashed home high into the net. However with the clock pushing 122 minutes, Derby go on the attack instead of taking it the corner flag. They would be punished with a flowing Newcastle counterattack, Nicky Butt feeding Derek Boateng who flights a ball to the back post for an unmarked Claudio Caçapa to nod home a dramatic late equaliser.
The penalty shootout would be quick and painless. Derby’s players, mentally crushed from conceding such a late goal and dissolved of all confidence, missed all 3 of their penalties to concede the FA Cup to Newcastle United.

https://preview.redd.it/ee35dfnvqfd51.png?width=842&format=png&auto=webp&s=592ce72a26e286ece94ed1939cc7a56cb3889c6a
Consolation for Derby is that, because Newcastle already secured European football through their League Cup victory, they will also be playing in Europe thanks to being FA Cup runners up. Incredible for a team that was predicted to be relegated this season.
Championship
Charlton return to the top division, hanging on to top spot despite losing to West Brom on a final day, as Sheffield United could only muster a draw at home to Southampton. Watford, West Brom, QPR and Southampton make up the playoff hopefuls whilst Hull, Sheffield Wednesday and Colchester all drop down into League One. All three relegated teams’ fates were sealed before the final day, so Hull’s 2-0 win at home to Ipswich was in vain.
Stoke and Crystal Palace played each other in a play-off decider, with Stoke knowing that any win would secure them 6th place. Palace needed a win against Stoke and a favour from title-chasing Sheffield United against Southampton to leapfrog both Stoke and Southampton into 6th. As such, Southampton needed to better Stoke’s result to secure the playoffs. As it transpired, Crystal Palace’s dramatic 90th minute winner away to Stoke was not enough as Southampton played out an entertaining 2-2 draw with Sheffield United.
Massive credit to Scunthorpe who were predicted to finish rock bottom this season and defied all expectations by finishing 9th, just 3 points off the playoffs. Unbelievable effort from QPR too, who flouted their 18th place prediction by finishing 5th in the playoff places.
Marlon King would finish top scorer for Watford with 30 goals, well clear of second place István Ferenczi, Kevin Kyle picking up the Playmaker Award with 14 assists.
Playoff Semi Finals – leg 1
QPR 1 – 1 West Brom
Southampton 2 – 0 Watford
Playoff Semi Finals – leg 2
West Brom 2 – 0 QPR << West Brom win 3-1 on aggregate
Watford 2 – 1 Southampton << Southampton win 3-2 on aggregate
Playoff Final
Southampton 1 – 2 West Brom
A cagey 2-1 win for West Brom as Chris Brunt scores a late winner from a set piece. Sherjill MacDonald may well have offside for the opener as Zoltan Gera played a lovely ball in to the near post and Southampton may well have a right to be upset with referee Lee Probert. If the build-up to the equaliser was scrappy, the finish certainly wasn’t: a ball lifted over the top by Jason Euell is despatched exquisitely on the volley by David McGoldrick. Chris Brunt would have the last laugh in this one, sticking a 20yard free kick into the top corner to send West Bromwich Albion back into the Premier League.

https://preview.redd.it/0yrrfjr4rfd51.png?width=844&format=png&auto=webp&s=81c1fb45847ee4d66475e7fdcc29174856bbf490
Overachievers: QPR, Scunthorpe, Barnsley
Underachievers: Preston, Sheffield Wednesday, Cardiff City, Colchester United
League One
Business as expected for the top two as Nottingham Forest win the league and Swansea City seal automatic promotion. Yeovil needed favours on the final day to usurp Swansea but did themselves none in the process by drawing in what transpired to be a dead rubber against Bristol Rovers. Doncaster needed to better Carlisle’s result to go up but instead both teams lost, and Carlisle held onto 6th place. Brighton could’ve taken advantage of that slip but lost to champions Nottingham Forest, whilst Oldham could’ve shocked everybody but ultimately lost to Southend instead.
All four relegated teams were already down going into the final day: Northampton, Leeds, Tranmere and Leyton Orient.
Frazier Campbell of Wallsall and Marvin Williams of Yeovil would share the Golden Boot between them with 32 goals, 4 clear of veteran striker Tore André Flo. Brian Howard’s impressive displays for Yeovil meant he claimed the Playmaker Award with 20 assists.
Playoff Semi Finals – leg 1
Luton 2 – 1 Walsall
Carlisle 1 – 3 Yeovil
Playoff Semi Finals – leg 2
Walsall 0 – 0 Luton << Luton win 2-1 on aggregate
Yeovil 3 – 1 << Yeovil win 6-2 on aggregate
Playoff Final
Luton 4 – 1 Yeovil << Luton promoted after extra time
An open-ended affair with chances aplenty for both sides, Luton taking the lead inside the first 5 minutes, full-back Alan Goodall whipping a lovely ball into the near post for Sam Parkin to tuck away. Yeovil would be reduced to ten me early in the second half, Terrell Forbes hospital pass clearance met by the head of Luton’s Chris Hackett who nodded into the path of striker Drew Talbot. Talbot was unable to get his shot away clearly as Matthew Rose stuck out a leg to bring Talbot down and was sent off for a professional foul, drawing large protests from the Yeovil players.
Still, Yeovil pressed and five minutes later they’d find an unlikely equaliser. Brian Howard, standing over a free kick 30 yards out, goes for the audacious and gets a huge slice of luck as the free kick clatters off the wall, sends the keeper the wrong way and flies into the empty net.
Brave Yeovil would hold out the 90 minutes but unfortunately, Luton would make the extra man count in extra time, substitute Sol Davis starting the procession with a delightful free kick on the edge of the box. Tidy finishes from David Edwards and Willie Gibson rounded off a fine performance from Luton as they sealed their place in next season’s Championship.

https://preview.redd.it/bkaziqu8rfd51.png?width=843&format=png&auto=webp&s=c55d9f1700bfaa285ca402f45f7d697b20801452
Overachievers: Walsall, Brighton, Cheltenham, Yeovil
Underachievers: Leeds, Tranmere, Millwall
Maybe slightly harsh to put Leeds in there with a 15-point deduction, but without it they would’ve finished 10th which is still way below expectations.
League Two
Impressive Bury romped to a surprise League Two victory, 5 points clear of Peterborough who in turn were 6 points clear of Chesterfield. On-loan youngster Chedwyn Evans’ 24 league goals complementing striker partner Andy Bishop’s 22 league goals to good effect.
MK Dons’ Jemal Johnson would score 4 goals in a 5-2 away thriller at Brentford to snatch the Golden Boot away from Morecambe’s Michael Twiss, who must’ve hoped his two goals against Barnet would’ve been enough, Johnson finishing the season on 25 goals. Kevin McBride of Darlington wins the Playmaker Award.
Grimsby could’ve been relegated on the last day had they, as they did, lost to Hereford but in the end it mattered not as Barnet and Mansfield, who only needed a win to try and survive, both suffered heavy defeats to drop out of the Football League.
Playoff Semi Final – leg 1
Shrewsbury 1 – 2 Darlington
Macclesfield 0 – 2 Morecambe
Playoff Semi Final – leg 2
Darlington 1 – 1 Shrewsbury << Darlington win 3-1 on aggregate
Morecambe 3 – 2 Macclesfield << Morecambe win 5-2 on aggregate
Playoff final
An incredible event as teams predicted to finish 12th and 21st met in the playoff final. Morecambe’s firepower really should’ve seen them through here, but it was Darlington who took an early lead through Gregg Blundell.
Darlington must’ve feared the worst when top scorer Pawel Abbott was taken off injured after the half-hour mark. It took Morecambe until the 79th minute to get off the mark through, Jamie Forrester providing the breakthrough. Smart thinking from goalkeeper Steven Drench sees Forrester run through a gap the size of Jupiter between the two centre backs to collect the long punt forward and slot home.
Darlington would somehow have the last laugh though, Tommy Wright slotting him neatly 3 minutes later for a famous win, taking Darlington up to League One

https://preview.redd.it/m8t0l57crfd51.png?width=844&format=png&auto=webp&s=6f94715ce63781bdc9085c33b619229cb10d57c0
Overachievers: Morecambe, Macclesfield, Accrington Stanley, Darlington, Bury
Underachievers: Bradford, Rotherham, Brentford, MK Dons, Rochdale, Grimsby, Barnet, Mansfield
Honestly, take your pick. Crazy season in League Two.
Non-League
Oxford won the Conference Premier, 9 points ahead of the playoff hopefuls. Rushden & Diamonds steamrollered Stevenage 4-0 in the final, who themselves had reached the final via a 90th minute winner against Crawley, who themselves had an excellent season after being predicted to finish 19th and instead finished 2nd, even with a 6-point deduction. Simeon Jackson wins top goal scorer with 33 league goals for Rushden & Diamonds.
Overachievers: Salisbury, Histon, Crawley, Rushden & Diamonds
Underachievers: Exeter, York, Torquay, Ebbsfleet, Kidderminster, Burton

https://preview.redd.it/cz3nwj2erfd51.png?width=851&format=png&auto=webp&s=af2562e64a445924f67c6fae2a98cb245648cad7
Southport win the Conference North and Boston United win the playoff final, beating Kettering on penalties. Alfreton, Hyde and Vauxhall are all relegated.
Lewes win the Conference South and Dorchester Town win the playoff final, beating Braintree on penalties. Havant & Waterlooville, Hayes & Yeading and Fisher Athletic are all relegated.
League round-up. We’ve already talked about the overachievers and underachievers, so let’s quickly compare the media predictions to the teams’ actual finishing positions. Should we castigate the media? Or should be laud and slate the teams who, for better or worse, defied expectations?
The final position is denoted to the right of the team, with the change from the prediction one over.

What do the media know, eh?
The game also has its own season summary for each league which pretty much covers everything I’ve already shared but for those interested, see below:

https://preview.redd.it/d1u1vdgkrfd51.png?width=853&format=png&auto=webp&s=87c6b9ad71e0461ce708fa9ab1cf51acb2113f2a
UEFA Cup
It seems like forever ago since we saw European competition. I will skip ahead, so here are the First and Second Knockout Round results.
First Round

https://preview.redd.it/zm64vwrlrfd51.png?width=478&format=png&auto=webp&s=a730b92e911d7d70aaff43e11de4dd290b7b561b
Second Round

https://preview.redd.it/n85jm85nrfd51.png?width=481&format=png&auto=webp&s=0bfac290a1058ea2edb979e18314d41a7f753bd7
Gritty performances throughout. For those of you wondering why FC Bayern are in the UEFA Cup it’s because they finished 4th in the Bundesliga in 06/07 behind champions VfB Stuttgart, 2nd place Schalke and 3rd place Werder Bremen. They entered at the UEFA Cup first round, essentially a final qualifying round. In-game, they defeated FC Twente 5-1 on aggregate to reach the group stage. They finished 3rd in their group, behind Fiorentina and Bolton.

Quarter Finals
All relatively straight forward in the Quarter Finals too, Bayern and Tottenham progress comfortably whilst Porto and Fiorentina had to do a bit of digging in to get the job done.
FC Bayern (6) 3 - 0 (1) Werder Bremen
Dinamo Kiev (2) 2 - 2 (4) Porto
Tottenham (5) 1 - 1 (2) Blackburn
Fiorentina (3) 0 - 0 (2) Girondins Bordeaux

Semi Finals
Bayern and Fiorentina met again in the Semi Finals to relive their group match (which was a 1-1 draw). The Semi Final would prove to be hotly contested again, Bayern stealing the victory in the 90th minute through Bastian Schweinsteiger, although replays show he may well have been offside. Luca Toni and Adrian Mutu were the other goal scorers.
The second leg lived up to the billing as well, Bayern taking the lead mid-way through the first half through Miroslav Klose’s smart run and finish. Mark van Bommel added an unlikely second on the night through a sublime freekick which left Fiorentina needing 4 goals to go through. Adrian Mutu led a one-man crusade with a brace in the 63rd and 69th minute respectively before substitute Massimo Gobbi’s tidy 73rd minute finish set up a nervy finale. However, La Viola couldn’t add to their tally and Bayern reached the final.
A tight contest in the other match was lifted with Steed Malbranque’s goal on the stroke of half-time, simply sumptuous freekick from the corner of the box, lifted over the wall and into the back of the net on the near side. Some fine work from José Bosingwa down the right-hand side allowed him to whip a cross into the far post for Raúl Meireles to head in an equaliser to ensure the spoils were shared going into the second leg.
Robbie Keane scored his 25th goal of the season here with a cool finish, showing that you don’t need to blast the ball to score, Tottenham now sitting pretty knowing that Porto needed to score twice to progress. A moment of madness, however, from Didier Zokora left them in a spot of bother. Zokora was shown a straight red card on the brink of half-time, his second of the season, after catching Malkhaz Asatiani with his elbow, referee Stuart Dougal showing no hesitation in sending the Ivorian off. However, Porto were unable to even pluck out an equaliser, let alone a winner and Tottenham progress.
FC Bayern (4) 2 - 3 (4) Fiorentina << FC Bayern advance on away goals
Porto (1) 0 - 1 (2) Tottenham

Final
Bayern were utterly ruthless in the final, showing no mercy to Tottenham in a 3-0 demolishing, all of the goals coming in the first half courtesy of Luca Toni and a brace from Miroslav Klose. The lack of defensive cover in the midfield really cost them and Kevin-Prince Boateng had his work cut out trying to fill-in in Zokora’s absence, indeed getting himself sent off in the 79th minute for a second bookable offence.

https://preview.redd.it/itis2karrfd51.png?width=844&format=png&auto=webp&s=7d0c4d4a8dc0081c25d84af5d35b3e46dea10924
Miroslav Klose’s two goals in the final means he takes home the Golden Boot with 12 goals, edging out RC Lens’ Aruna Dindane and team-mate Luca Toni by one goal. Riccardo Montolivo of Fiorentina picks up the Playmaker Award with 8 assists.
Champions League
Now, for what you’ve all been waiting for – the Champions League!
We left you with the Quarter Final line-ups:

Get ready for mayhem...
None of the teams would disappoint in this round either. Liverpool beating Real Madrid 2-1 away in the first leg only to almost throw it away with a 2-1 loss at home, thanks for Raúl’s 90th minute goal. Liverpool may well have been questioning just why the final whistle hadn’t already blown, but Jamie Carragher would be the extra time hero though, scoring a scrappy goal after a corner was failed to be cleared by Madrid.
Inter Milan’s first leg away goal helped them on their way to beating Man Utd over two legs, Adriano powering home from an indirect free kick opportunity. Paul Scholes would level the tie up when they met again in Italy, but former Arsenal man Patrick Vieira would seal the tie for Inter with a wonderful 30-yard screamer into the top corner.
A contender for match-of-the-competition as Arsenal overcame Barcelona in a 10-goal feast. Thierry Henry’s sub 5-minute brace against his former club, including one after just 18 seconds, was pegged back by Robin van Persie’s own brace and the Gunners would lead 3-2 at half-time thanks to “wonderkid” Nicklas Bendtner. Bendtner would be at it again shortly after half-time, thanks in part to even more craftsmanship from Francesc Fàbregas. A headed goal from William Gallas at a corner put Arsenal 5-2 up and looking comfortable but Barcelona went on the attack the corresponding kick off, Xavi Hernández sliding Ronaldinho in to make it 5-3, Jens Lehmann going walkabouts by all accounts.
Bendtner would complete has hattrick on 70 minutes though, slotting home after a neat turn in the corner of the box, sending Andrea Barzagli to another dimension. Barcelona would secure their 5th away goal though, Thierry Henry completing his own hat-trick after William Gallas failed to deal with a ball over the tip. Final score 6-4. And breathe.
The second leg was less entertaining, but Thierry Henry would put his former club to the sword again with two more goals and, despite Rafael Márquez being sent off for an astonishing elbow to Bakary Sagna’s face, Barcelona held out for the win on away goals. 2-0 on the night, 6-6 on aggregate. The most disgraceful part of the night was the players surrounding referee Thorsten Kinhöfer after the red card. Pundits are still perplexed as to what they were complaining about.
Finally onto Celtic, who produced the most breath-taking First Knockout Round ties against Valencia would continue to produce high entertainment value against PSV. Celtic held the advantage after a 1-1 draw in Eindhoven, but PSV would not go down without a fight. Rodrigo Palacio opened the scoring after Scott Brown needlessly lost the ball and some poor play from goalkeeper Artur Boruc, less than 45seconds into the match. Maciej Zurawski would dig his goalkeeper out of a hole 3 minutes later, beating Heurelho Gomes at his near post before Rodrigo hit back again on 8 minutes, capitalising on another poor error from Artur Boruc.
John de Jong would add to icing to a rich and wholesome cake, flicking the ball into the far corner of the net beyond Boruc’s reach and PSV looked comfortable leading 4-2 on aggregate, knowing Celtic now needed 3 goals to progress. PSV would lose key midfielder Edison Méndez to injury on 27 minutes but it would take until the second half for Celtic to take advantage, Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink finishing off an attack before Maciej Zurawski would set up a frantic last 5 minutes after getting on the end of Lee Naylor’s inch-perfect cross. Celtic couldn’t produce one more moment of magic though and the tie would finish 4-4 on aggregate, PSV going through by virtue of away goals.
Real Madrid (3) 2 - 2 (4) Liverpool
Man Utd (1) 1 - 1 (2) Inter
Arsenal (6) 0 - 2 (6) Barcelona << Barcelona advance on away goals
PSV (4) 3 - 3 (4) Celtic << PSV advance on away goals

Semi Finals
Could the Semi Finals produce the same magic? Liverpool were paired up against Inter Milan and Barcelona were drawn against PSV.
Barcelona all but ended PSV hopes of an underdog victory, smashing them 4-0 in the first leg at home, Thierry Henry and Ronaldinho both scoring braces, Ronaldinho’s both coming from penalties (and both when Henry was on a hat-trick so he can probably consider himself unlucky to be allowed to take one of them). With Edison Méndez still missing, Sebastián Battaglia was asked to step in but he was easily over-run by the Barcelona midfield.
PSV showed incredible fight immediately in the return fixture, going 2-0 up inside the first 7 minutes through Palacio’s lob and Ismael Aissati’s smart finish, but Barcelona soon calmed everything down, scoring 4 unanswered goals in return before half-time courtesy of Barzagli, two from Henry and a brilliant Ronaldinho free kick.. Gastón Fernández scored again late in the second half, but with the tie already done and dusted, it was more for pride than anything else. Barcelona win 4-3 on the night and 8-3 on aggregate.
Liverpool hosted Inter Milan at Anfield for the first leg of the other semi final and took a first half-lead through a stunning John Arne Riise free kick. Steven Gerrard forced Júlio César into an own goal after initially saving Ryan Babel’s long-range effort before Fernando Torres turned provider for Ryan Babel to breakaway and make it 3-0. Zlatan Ibrahimović gave Inter Milan some hope with a late away goal, pouncing on a rare error from Jamie Carragher in the 88th minute.
Liverpool were in good form going into the return leg, having battered fierce rivals Man Utd 4-0 at home at the weekend but it was Inter Milan who dominated this game for long periods, really putting the Liverpool team to the sword. Their dominance paid off in the 21st minute when Ibrahimović retrieved Maicon’s pinpoint pass and slotted into the bottom corner. Torres would ease the pressure on Liverpool with an equaliser at the start of the second half, his 20th goal of the season passed into the bottom corner; the keeper probably should’ve done better with it though. Inter claimed offside, but I’m not convinced.
Incensed, Inter went on the attack immediately, both literally and figuratively, injuring Torres before Ibrahimović fed Adriano who had the vision to pick out Esteban Cambiasso to restore Inter’s lead on the night. A great counterattack. Inter would make Liverpool pay once more for sloppy defending when Steve Finnan was beaten to the ball too easily by Adriano who cut it back for Maxwell to fire home. Pepe Reina will be disappointed when he looks back on that, as he really should be saving those kinds of shots. 3-1 on the night and unbelievably 4-4 on aggregate.
Extra time beckoned but Adriano was not interested in penalties, whipping a delightful ball around the corner for his strike partner David Suazo, clean through on goal to slot past a helpless Reina. Liverpool would go all out offensive from then until the final whistle but couldn’t muster one last goal to salvage the result and Inter go through to final, 4-1 on the night, 5-4 on aggregate.
Liverpool (4) 1 - 4 (5) Inter
Barcelona (8) 4 - 3 (3) PSV

Final
And so for the final. Inter Milan vs Barcelona. The world held high hopes after the last few rounds: they wanted goals.
They were not disappointed.

Strong.
Barcelona opened the scoring on 23 minutes, emerging “wonderkid” Lionel Messi slotting Samuel Eto’o through to score his 20th goal of the season. The lead wouldn’t last too long though, as Ibrahimović fed Suazo to equaliser on 31 minutes. Eto’o would restore the lead again soon after, Deco sliding a lovely pass through the defence for Eto’o to bury.
Controversy followed in the second half. Xavi loses the ball to Maxwell inside the Inter half who in turn goes on a mazy run towards goal exchanging passes with Cambiasso along the way. He is allegedly obstructed by Zambrotta outside the penalty arc, but replays show that it’s a blatant dive. To make matters worse, the referee inexplicably gives a penalty! Ibrahimović slots it without question. 2-2.
63 minutes and Puyol is needlessly dragged out of position to close down Stankovic who instead slips in Ibrahimović for his second of the game. Minutes later, a poor throw-in from Zambrotta gifts the ball to Ibrahimović to seal his hat-trick and put the game to bed, Inter holding out for a 4-2 win in the final against Barcelona!

https://preview.redd.it/h8a5m6o4sfd51.png?width=842&format=png&auto=webp&s=b75fe5a7f131b27119bfecdadf612ff7bab575ee
Despite the result, Ibrahimović would finish runner up to on 14 goals to Thierry Henry and Rodrigo Palacio in the Golden Boot race, the latter pair netting 15 goals a-piece. Andrés Iniesta would take home the Playmaker Award with 8 assists ahead of team-mate Ronaldinho’s 7. Despite an average rating of 7.83, Ronaldinho would also finish runner-up to Ibrahimović in the Champions League best player, with Henry rounding off the top 3.
Now, because does not save an accessible history of stats and results, they are essentially wiped as the season ends, so I decided to end each 4th game file on June 1st. The game resets around about the 24th or 25th but I wanted to stop the game after the season had finished and before any international competitions began.
But the year is 2008 so we all know what’s coming…

This does mean I’m going to have to go into the game file for Year 2, but I’ll keep everything else a secret. Euro 2008 deserves to be inside the 07/08 season.
I do have all the results for the other international tournaments akin to this which make up the Confederations Cup competitors, so I will give a very brief oversight into those as well as they happen.
I’m not going to go into how each team qualified for the tournament unless you specifically ask about it in the comments. Let’s look at the groups, with the help of some expert MS Paint skills to display their current world rankings too.

https://preview.redd.it/gjbu0xo6sfd51.png?width=275&format=png&auto=webp&s=a4f9acbbe0a8ab7fba779689c4137c37b137793c
The most notable changes are that Denmark, England, Scotland and Finland all qualified for this edition and Spain, French, Russia and Poland, who all qualified in the real Euro 2008, miss out. Hosts Switzerland and Austria naturally have terrible ratings due to not playing many competitive internationals as they didn’t need to qualify for their own tournament. Group B looks tough, and the Scots may well fancy an upset in Group D.
Editors predictions: England. Not just because I’m biased, but because on paper they have the squad to do it. The Golden Generation may not have succeeded in real life, but this is stats-based fantasy. Football’s coming home! Failing that, and with France and Spain both missing, it’s anyone’s to take. I’m putting money on a Ronaldo-backed Portugal.
I will run through them Group by Group, even though it won’t strictly be in the order. All will be well again come the Knockout Rounds.
(editor note: a picture of all the groups is at the bottom. I had to cut back to 20 images)
Group A
Croatia and Sweden played out an entertaining 2-2 draw that didn’t get going until the last 30 minutes. Jurica Vranjes thought he’d snatched a late 87th minute for Croatia until Marcus Allbäck equalised 2 minutes later. Two early goals for Denmark were enough to see off Switzerland despite themselves pulling a goal back before half-time, a 2-1 finish.
The second round of fixtures produced even more drama, a Tranquillo Barnetta hat-trick for Switzerland helping to sink Sweden 4-3 in a back-and-forth game, Gelson Fernandes eventually settling the contest for the Swiss. An Eduardo-inspired Croatia took the game to Denmark and a late Nicklas Bendtner goal wasn’t enough to stop Croatia winning 3-1.
Any win for Croatia against Switzerland sends them through. A draw would also suffice. Switzerland need to win, although a draw would do if Sweden could beat Denmark. Any positive Denmark result paired with a Croatia win sees them progress, or even a win and a Croatia/Swiss draw. Sweden must beat Denmark and hope Croatia win. If the Swiss beat Croatia, they need to win and hope for a goal difference swing.
Drama all round as Sweden’s tournament hopes end with a 2-1 defeat to Denmark. Switzerland know they realistically need to win but can only muster a 2-2 draw with Croatia.
Denmark top the group, Croatia are runners up.

Group B
Czech Republic and Austria open the tournament with an entertaining 2-2 draw, Austria snatching a 90th minute equaliser through Steffen Hofmann after a mistake from Zdenek Grygera. Turkey and Portugal would step it up a notch by playing out a 3-2 game which, in truth, Portugal were always in control of. 3-0 up inside 21minutes, Turkey made a second half comeback but the 2nd goal in the 89th minute was too little, too late.
Goals from Deco and Tomas Rosicky in the first half ensured the spoils were shared in a game where the Czech Republic dominated Portugal for large portions of the game and will be disappointed to only draw 1-1. (editor note: the game seems to think Portugal completed 200% of their crosses in this match…) Turkey, on the other hand, turned their dominance into a 2-0 win over Austria.
Portugal need to beat Austria to secure top spot whereas Austria know they need a big win and some good fortune for a draw in the other game. Any winner of Turkey/Czech Republic will qualify, but a draw for Turkey should be enough, barring a miracle from Austria. It’s feasible that Portugal could still be knocked out, though very unlikely.
And as it happens, Portugal make light work of Austria, Maniche and Cristiano Ronaldo scoring first half goals to seal the tie 2-0 in an otherwise boring match. Czech Republic would be made to pay for not getting the winner against Portugal, being torn apart comprehensively by a relentless Turkey side with braces for both Nihat and Halil Altintop, 4-0 the final score line.
Portugal top the group, Turkey are runners up.

Group C
The last group to get going, but no lack of entertainment here, with Romania cruising to a 2-0 win against Greece. All of the drama came in the much-anticipated England/Germany match though and it met all expectations. Darren Bent’s headed opener was cancelled out by Miroslav Klose pouncing on Paul Robinson’s fumble, but Wayne Rooney would restore England’s lead halfway through the first half. Bayern’s Lukas Podolski pulled it level again before half-time before the teams seemed set to see out a 2-2 draw. However, deep into stoppage time at the end of 90 minutes, up steps David Beckham to do what David Beckham does best – dispatch freekicks into the top corner. 3-2. There was still time after the restart for Steven Gerrard to be shown a straight-red for hacking down Klose with two-feet.
Germany would take their revenge out on Greece in the next game, securing a 4-2 victory, whilst England would maintain their good form by persevering for a late 2-0 win against Romania.
England are already through and Greece cannot qualify so their final game is a dead rubber, other than Greece trying not to finish bottom and England trying to assure top spot. The winner of Germany/Romania will go through, but a draw will be enough for Germany by virtue of Goal Difference.
England consign Greece to 4th place in the group with a routine 2-0 win, goals from Wayne Rooney and Shaun Wright-Phillips enough to see them off. A cagey first-half in the Germany/Romania match became a much more open-ended affair after Daniel Niculae’s brilliant 47th minute opener, a sublime solo run culminating in a lobbed finish. Miroslav Klose fired back 10 minutes later with 2 goals in quick succession to swing the tie but Romania, not prepared to lie down, equalised again through Eric Bicfalvi. Romania would do the unthinkable though, Adrian Mutu bending a delightful goal into the corner to secure a 3-2 victory for Romania.
England top the group, Romania are runners up.

Group D
Italy kicked off the group against Finland with a nervy win, having gone 1-0 down to a 60th minute penalty from Ari Nyman. Filippo Inzaghi pulled it level in the 82nd minute before Antonin Cassano’s stoppage time winner stole all the points from Finland. Scotland were less keen to roll over though and will be disappointed to have thrown away a 3-1 lead at the 85th minute, Wesley Sneijder and Roy Makaay with late goals to snatch a 3-3 draw.
Holland vs Italy was billed as the one to watch in this group, and rightly so, both teams amassing almost 30 shots between them, but with both keepers in good form, the match would be tied 1-1, Riccardo Montolivo cancelled out Robin van Persie’s first half strike. Scotland have certainly found their shooting boots at this tournament after putting 4 past Finland, but they were made to work for the victory with the Finns taking the lead and later equalising through Mika Ääritalo’s brace. James McFadden’s strike would retake the lead before Barry Ferguson put the icing on the cake of a 4-2 win.
Scotland need any result against Italy to go through. A loss through, coupled with a likely Holland win overly Finland, would send them crashing out. Finland cannot progress. Holland must win to go through, as must Italy.
Holland do indeed get their win against Finland, dominating from start to finish, although the score line should really have been bigger than 2-1. Scotland’s hopes of sneaking out of the group were dealt an immediate blow as they went 1-0 down to Alessandro Del Piero’s header inside 45 seconds. Alberto Gilardino would double the lead in the 20th minute and although Kenny Miller pulled one back in the second half, they couldn’t find a second goal to escape the group. Final score 2-1 to Italy.
Italy top the group, Holland are runners up.
Summary
https://preview.redd.it/o41tr52jtfd51.png?width=848&format=png&auto=webp&s=e3c96a5bda7862b3e04e55ada618d0e7358e0d8c
Quarter Finals
Turkey – Denmark
Croatia – Portugal
England – Holland
Italy – Romania
No real humdingers here as all of the teams tightened up a lot.
Turkey did away with Denmark 2-0 in a game that the Danes will be disappointed to have not scored in. Nihat and an own goal from Per Krøldrup sealed the game.
Portugal were perhaps the better team in their tie against Croatia but still had to work hard to secure a 2-1 victory, Eduardo’s first half strike cancelled out by Maniche and Ronaldo in the second.
More late, late drama in this one as Frank Lampard scored a trademark goal, arriving from deep to sweep home a Wright-Phillips cross. England must’ve thought that’d be enough but Robin van Persie struck early into stoppage time to level the tie up 1-1. But cometh the 94th minute, cometh the man: Holland do not deal with a long clearance properly and Wright-Phillips skips past his man on the wing to lay the ball into the path of the onrushing Lampard who buries it high into the far corner. Holland complain to the linesman but really, they should be looking at themselves for some shoddy defending.
Romania will be disappointed they had to take Italy all the way to penalties to beat them, having been arguably the better team throughout. 1-1 at full time but a comfortable 4-2 shootout victory as their excellent tournament marches on, the only sour point being Stefan Radu’s 121st minute red card for a horrific tackle on Antonio Cassano.
Turkey 2-0 Denmark
Croatia 1-2 Portugal
England 2-1 Holland
Italy 1-1 Romania << Romania advance on penalties
Semi Finals
Turkey – Romania
Portugal – England
One thing guaranteed in this tournament now is that there will be an outsider in the final. Turkey left it late, but a brace from Nihat would prove enough to put Romania to the sword and end their dream run. Romania might look back and feel like they could’ve done better with both goals though.
Manchester United teammates Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney did battle in this one, both getting their names on the scoresheet with clinical finishes. There would be nothing to settle the two sides until the very end: penalties. Hugo Viana, Nuno Valente, Jorge Andrade all scored whilst Gareth Barry, John Terry and Steven Gerrard did likewise. After Miguel fired home, Michael Carrick would see his penalty saved by goalkeeper Ricardo. However, some Paul Robinson heroics against Ricardo Carvalho gave Rio Ferdinand a chance to get back into the shootout. The pressure was too much though, and he slammed his penalty against the inside of the post to see Portugal through to the final, a final which Deco will miss with suspension after hacking Wright-Phillips down with two feet in 120th minute for an early bath.
Turkey 2-0 Romania
Portugal 1-1 England << Portugal advance on penalties
Final
No Third Place Playoff in the Euros, straight into the final where Turkey meet Portugal, looking for an upset. Nihat and Mehmet Aurélio’s persistence forced the breakthrough on 20 minutes but a smart short freekick routine 2 minutes later from Portugal saw Maniche hit a bending daisy cutter into the bottom corner to equalise. Into the second half and Mehmet Topuz played one of the balls of the tournament from deep, around the defence and into the path of Nihat who didn’t need to break stride to hit an unbelievable shot on the half-volley. Rumour has it that Nihat lost Ricardo Carvalho so well, he is still searching for Nihat to this day. Turkey would hold on to their 2-1 advantage until the final whistle to become unlikely European Champions 2008.

And so that concludes the first season back of Reasons Why I Still Play FM08, also unofficially called What Could Have Been.
This grew to be significantly longer than I expected, and I thoroughly enjoyed writing it, even if it did take me well over 15 hours to do so.
If anybody has any specific questions about any aspects of this particular game, please feel free to ask and I’ll do my best to answer them, whether it’s information about non-league clubs, club finances, world rankings, wonderkid regens etc.
I will also happily run through competitions like the African Cup of Nations and the Olympics, although competitions like the Asian Cup, Gold Cup, Copa América have yet to happen on this file.
I have at least 5 seasons worth of game files now, and seasons 2-5 are all structured the same in terms of save dates: September 1st, December 1st, March 1st and June 1st.
Congratulations if you got this far, I applaud your perseverance. I hope you enjoyed it. See you soon for Year 2.

2020.07.25 21:27 GraveH0rizons- Need help with my sexuality plus storytime

My friend who was straight for the first 16 years of his life (his phrasing) said to me that he's starting to get a crush on me, 16, after he saw me naked for the first time and thinks he might be bisexual but he doesn't know. I say I'm flattered but I'm not into guys and good luck figuring yourself out.
A few weeks pass and I can tell he's still not sure and it's making him uncomfortable and anxious and what not so I ask him what can I do to help, he says "nothing, I have to do this on my own. I think its best we keep our distance" (because of the crush and all). I say okay
About a week pass and he gets drunk at a party and I let him stay round mine because his parents weren't home that weekend and couldn't get back. In the morning he sees me naked getting out the shower. He tells me "I need gay sex" (there was more but that was the jist of it) so I say fine, as a good friend, I will have sex with you so you can see if you like it and decide if you are bisexual. So we do it, foreplay, anal and oral, giving and receiving. Multiple times. And he enjoys it and comes out as bisexual proper to me.
I said that's good and we went on our ways. What I didnt tell him was that I really enjoyed it too, all of it but I had no interest or romantic or sexual attraction to him or any guys what so ever apart from David Beckham and Henry Cavill (any straight guy would go gay for them). I download grindr and hook up with guys and enjoy the sex but dont find any guys attractive. I watch gay porn and I enjoy it but don't find the guys attractive
So what would my sexuality be? Bi? Bi curious?
TL:DR I like having sex with men but I dont find men attractive at all and have no intention of dating them or whatever, only sex

2020.07.23 16:02 goingsouthhiker Cleveland Browns 2020 Offseason Review

I was tasked to write the offseason review for NFL so here it is

Cleveland Browns

Division: AFC North
Record: 6 - 10
Introduction
Hey everyone u/goingsouthhiker here to provide you more information than you ever wanted to know about the Cleveland Browns. My first distinct memory as a child is my fathers face in stunned silence as Ernest Byner fumbled at the goaline. I have been gifted through some sick hereditary defect a lifelong love of the Browns. so here you go.
 
Coaching Changes/GM Changes
 
Freddie Kitchens Fired  
On December 29th, 2019, the Browns fired head coach Freddie Kitchens. This is the culmination of a coaching hire that seemed to be entirely based upon folksy blue collar catch phrases “if you don’t wear brown and orange, you don’t matter” and a good relationship with Baker Mayfield.  
Some of Freddie's greatest hits included
  • 4th and 9 - Draw Play
  • Madden Style 5 WR streaks from your own goal line
  • Send out the punt team on 4th-and-11 down 17 points in the fourth quarter to the New England Patriots, only to change his mind and take a deliberate false start rather than burn a timeout.
  • 4th and 1 on the goal line and not have Nick Chubb on the field
 
John Dorsey Fired  
On December 31st, 2019, the Browns and general manager John Dorsey mutually agreed to part ways after an up and down tenure that brought in a lot of talent but ultimately the decision to hire Kitchens and some questionable high draft picks sank him.
 
Kevin Stefanski Hired  
On January 13th, 2020, the Browns hired former Minnesota Vikings' offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski as head coach. This is another first time head coach hire for the browns after an exhaustive coaching search. This hire is the one Paul Depodesta of Moneyball Fame banged the table for prior to the promotion of Kitchens so ultimately the nerds won the battle a year too late.
 
Andrew Berry Hired  
On January 27th, 2020, the Browns hired former Philadelphia Eagles' vice president of football operations Andrew Berry as general manager. Berry previously served as the Browns' vice president of player personnel from 2016–18 under Sashi Brown. At age 32, Berry became the youngest general manager in NFL history.
Berry has been considered in league circles as the next great rising front office star even from his early days in Indianapolis. Ivy league educated and an analytics darling now paired again with Depodesta the Browns will be heavy into analytics and efficiency in their decision making.
 
Alex Van Pelt Hired  
On January 29th 2020, the Browns hired former Cincinnati Bengals' quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt as offensive coordinator. Van Pelt, who served as offensive coordinator for the Buffalo Bills in 2009, replaced Todd Monken, who was not retained by Stefanski.
Nobody is quite sure who will be calling plays on game day, The one thing going for this hire is when Van Pelt was the QB Coach for Green Bay Aaron Rodgers was super angry about Van Pelt being fired so there is that.
 
Joe Woods Hired  
On February 7th 2020, the Browns hired former San Francisco 49ers' defensive backs coach Joe Woods as defensive coordinator. Woods, who previously served as the defensive coordinator for the Denver Broncos from 2017–18, replaced Steve Wilks, who was not retained by Stefanski
Woods is a man of mystery he has coached just about every scheme in existence and has given the ever popular "We will tailor our defense to our personnel" answer every time somebody tries to get anything out of him in regards to what he plans to run in Cleveland.
 
Free Agency
Players lost/cut
Player Position New Team
Joe Schobert LB Jacksonville
Christian Kirksey LB Green Bay
Eric Kush G Las Vegas
Demetrius Harris TE Chicago
T.J. Carrie CB Indianapolis
Damarious Randall S Las Vegas
Greg Robinson T Prison
Rickey Seals Jones TE Kansas City
Adarius Taylor LB Released
Morgan Burnett S Released
Eric Murray S Houston
Going into the 2019 season the Browns defense had a lack of quality depth at LB and Safety. So naturally the first thing the Browns do in Free Agency is let go the remaining veteran players at LB and Safety. I can't say for certain this was a bad thing as you will see below.
 
Top Losses
 
Joe Shobert LB - Was a tackling machine and rare pro bowler on this team, however too many of those tackles were made 8-10 yards downfield on run plays. His coverage skills were raw as well so I get not paying him big money.
Christian Kirksey LB - This one hurts a bit not due to production on the field as Kirko was hurt a lot! But more so as he was that beloved master of the Dawg Check and was a great team guy.
Damarious Randall S - A solid player who the Browns converted back to Safety but was always a bit of a headcase. He will be remembered best as the player who intercepted a Bengals pass and handed the ball to Hue Jackson on the Bengals sideline.
 
Players Signed/Brought Back
Player Position Contract
Kareem Hunt RB 1yr $3.25M
Case Keenum QB 3yr $18M
Andy Janovich FB Trade w/Broncos
Jack Conklin T 3yr $42M
Austin Hooper TE 4yr $44M
Karl Joseph S 1yr $2.5M
Andrew Billings DL 1yr $3.5M
Kevin Johnson CB 1yr $3.5M
Andrew Sendejo S 1yr $2.5M
Evan Brown C No Details
Donovan Olumba CB No Details
JoJo Natson WR 1yr $1M
BJ Goodson LB 1yr $2.4M
Chris Hubbard T Restructured
Adrian Clayborn EDGE 1yr $2.4M
Olivier Vernon EDGE Restructured
Myles Garrett EDGE So Much Money
Rashard Higgins WR 1yr 910k
 
Man this is a list... Ok so there were very few holes on Offense going into Free Agency but the ones that stood out were both tackles and depth at tight end. The Browns ultimately solved one tackle spot and TE really early in Free Agency with what most considered the best available players at their position.
On the Defensive side we had a open call for any experienced body who wanted to take a 1 year prove it deal. So much depth added via players that fell through the cracks on their former team.
 
Top Signings
 
Jack Conklin RT - The top right tackle in free agency, had a nice season for the titans after coming off a major injury the year before. Can be a All-Pro caliber RT if healthy. Really filled a huge need.
Austin Hooper TE - or "HooooooP" As the falcons fans tell me I am to call him. Filled a big need for reliable catches at the TE position. With David Njoku in the dog house, unable to catch anything, and now asking for a trade this is a big get for the Browns.
Andy Janovich FB - By far my personal favorite signing. Acquired in a trade with the Broncos he is one of the best pure Fullbacks left in the game. I expect him to be a Fan Favorite quickly. There is nothing more that Cleveland Fans adore more than elevating a former Broncos fullback to Legendary status.(See Peyton Hillis)
Case Keenum - Browns fans all hope that the Baker Mayfield of last year was a product of really bad coaching, however Keenum can win games in the NFL and is a familiar face to new coach Stefanski having had a career year with Minnesota with Stefanski as his QB coach. I am much more confident in having Keenum as the backup than Garrett Gilbert.
New Contracts - The Browns have ensured Myles Garrett will be a Brown for a long while, placed a 2nd round tender on former rushing champ Kareem hunt, and after briefly flirting with Clowney decided to restructure Olivier Vernon to a much better contract number befitting his oft injured yet surprisingly productive season.
 
 
Draft - Cribbed from u/Marzman315 with permission who did a very excellent defending the draft and I agree with it in it's entirety. The Grades are mine.
 
Round Player Position
1.10 Jedrick Wills T
2.44 Grant Delpit S
3.88 Jordan Elliott DT
3.97 Jacob Phillips ILB
4.115 Harrison Bryant TE
5.160 Nick Harris C
6.187 Donovan Peoples-Jones WR
 
1.10 - Jedrick Wills Jr., Offensive Tackle Alabama Grade A  
As expected, the Browns used the tenth overall pick on a tackle. The tackle turned out to be Jedrick Wills Jr., blindside blocker for Tua Tagovailoa. The former four star high school prospect started all 28 games for the Crimson Tide over his sophomore and and junior years. As a second team All-American and first team All-SEC player, he paved the way for Alabama's elite offense with his quick feet, smooth redirection, extremely powerful anchor and strength, and absolutely punishing punch.  
This pick was overwhelmingly approved of by analysts both internally and externally. Joe Thomas released a reaction video that was enthusiastic to say the least. He made it clear that Wills was his ideal target for the Browns at 10th overall. The front office and coaching staff made it known that Wills was their priority target going into the draft, and were entertaining the possibility of trading up for him, but ultimately the draft board fell their way and they got their man at 10.  
The only negative to the drafting of Wills is that he has only played right tackle in his college career, and given the free agent signing of right tackle Jack Conklin, Wills is going to be expected to transition to left tackle to start his NFL career. Joe Thomas also gave input on this, and stated that while the transition is difficult it is easier to do early in your career, and that he would personally take Wills under his wing and mentor him. Between Joe Thomas's guidance and the coaching of veteran offensive line coach Bill Callahan, not to mention the phenomenal talent of Wills, the transition should be doable for Wills with a minimum of serious difficulty. The protection of franchise QB Baker Mayfield is of paramount importance, and this selection reflects that.
 
2.44 - Grant Delpit, Safety LSU Grade A  
Most Browns fans anticipated that a safety specializing in coverage would be a priority target on day 2. With replacing Damarious Randall a necessity, the Browns zeroed in on LSU standout Grant Delpit. Boasting phenomenal range, excellent ball skills, and tremendous athleticism for the position, he brings an impressive skill set to the team.
Once considered a top 15 to top 20 pick, injuries and questions about tackling caused his value to drop a bit over the season. His broken clavicle in 2018 likely led to a hesitation in committing fully to tackles, and his production in that sense dropped in 2019. Despite some questions about open field tackling, Delpit's football IQ, versatility, and ball skills are enough to excite Browns fans into thinking that they found a solid starter.
 
3.88 - Jordan Elliot, Defensive Tackle Missouri Grade B  
In a post draft interview, Browns Chief Strategist Paul DePodesta revealed that obtaining 2021 draft capital was a priority coming into the draft. Depth along the defensive line has been an issue for the Browns for some time. Both of these issues were addressed with the Browns first pick in the third round.
Jordan Elliot is well known in the scouting community for being the darling prospect of Pro Football Focus, who consistently rated him as a first round prospect. While he lacks some power and length, he has a lightning quick first step and fluid pass rushing skills. His skill set doesn't exactly project him to be an every down player, but he can be a strong gap penetrating 3T rotating along the Browns defensive line.
 
3.97 - Jacob Phillips, Linebacker LSU Grade C Minus
Joe Shobert led the Browns in tackles in two of the last three seasons. Replacing that production was certainly a concern of the Browns. Phillips is an athletic linebacker that led a powerhouse LSU team in tackles. He is strong against the run, and plays fast and strong with solid instincts.
Phillips likely may not replace Shobert's pass coverage, as coverage skills were a clear negative on Phillips' scouting report. But as far as reliable tackling goes Phillips can contribute early, especially on special teams and base defense.
 
4.115 - Harrison Bryant, Tight End Florida Atlantic Grade A
Kevin Stefanski's offense notably uses multiple tight end sets and 12 personnel. Harrison Bryant is a very exciting receiving threat at the TE position. He projects mainly as a depth player behind Austin Hooper and David Njoku (if he remains on the team) currently while he develops his overall game, but he likely sees the field a bit as a rookie. He doesn't bring much to the table as far as blocking goes, but there is absolutely some exciting upside here.
 
5.160 - Nick Harris, Guard/Center Washington Grade C
While the Browns O-line was the subject of well deserved criticisms in 2019, the interior of the line was quietly fairly solid. Left guard Joel Bitonio is among the best in the league at his position and Center JC Tretter is a pro bowl caliber player. Wyatt Teller was unspectacular but played well enough to bring a bit of stability to the position. Lacking at the interior o-line was any sort of depth.
With years of experience at guard and center, Nick Harris will add solid depth and may compete with Teller for the starting right guard spot. He is a smart and nimble pass blocker, and while he doesn't have ideal size for the position (6'1" 300 LB) he uses his low center of gravity effectively to secure a solid base.
 
6.187 - Donovan Peoples-Jones, Wide Receiver Michigan Grade A (upside)
Wide receiver was sneakily a bit of a need for the Browns going into the 2020 draft. Odell Beckham Jr and Jarvis Landry are among the best 1/2 starters in the NFL, but after them the depth chart is thin.
Peoples-Jones is a perfect prospect to gamble on. He showed flashes of phenomenal play while at Michigan, and was considered at one point to be a future first round pick and NFL star. Injuries and abysmal QB play severely hindered his college career. His production did not come close to matching his talent. He is athletic, runs clean routes, gets solid seperation, and is good with the ball in his hands. There is a lot of talent here that can be developed.
 
Undrafted Free Agents:
Soloman Ajayi, Linebacker, Liberty
Elijah Benton, Safety, Liberty
Ja'Marcus Bradley, Wide Receiver, Louisiana
Tony Brown, Wide Receiver, Colorado
Kevin Davidson, Quarterback, Princeton
Drake Dorbeck, Offensive Tackle/Guard, Southern Mississippi
A.J. Green, Cornerback, Oklahoma State
Brian Herrion, Runningback, Georgia

Jovante Moffit, Safety, Middle Tennessee
George Obinna, Defensive End, Sacremento State
Alex Taylor, Offensive Tackle, South Carolina State
Jeffrey Whatley, Defensive Tackle, South Alabama
Nate Wieting, Tight End, Iowa
 
Going Forward:
You will have a hard time finding a Browns fan who did not love this draft. They filled all of their pressing needs without reaching, were savvy navigating the board with trades, and acquired 2021 draft picks. The Browns earned one of only four A+ grades from PFF. While the roster is not without some holes, particularly at linebacker, this is a team that is built to compete. With improvements on the offense that will hopefully come with better coaching and a brand new O-line, the Browns are absolutely in a better position this year than last

Baker Mayfield - This is the wildcard for the entire team. There is arguably not a better supporting cast in the league for a Quarterback. Assuming at minimum competent coaching there is no excuse for Mayfield going into year 3. There will be a long leash I am sure but Keenum is waiting in the wings if Mayfield looks like he did last year as opposed to the record setter he was in year 1.  
As goes the arm of Mayfield so goes the Browns Playoff hopes.
 
RB Grade: A+++
Nick Chubb - Quiet, professional, will run you over and laugh at your pitiful tackle attempts. Nick Chubb is a beast, lead the league in yards after contact and nearly won the rushing title. In this new RB friendly system with an improved O-Line and an actual fullback Chubb is going to eat.
 
Kareem Hunt - It's not often that your backup running back is also a league rushing champion. Last year after serving his suspension he came in and made quite a few spectacular plays in the passing game and showed he still had that spark in the running game. This one Two punch is going to be fun to watch!
 
Pass Catchers WTE Grade: A
Goodness where to start... This might be an unpopular take but Jarvis Landry is the Best WR on this team and a top 5 pass catcher in the league. He has the most catches ALL TIME in a players first 6 seasons in the league. No longer relegated to slot duties as he was in Miami he had is best year in 2019.
 
Both Landry and OBJ went over 1000 yards last year which is stunning to me because it felt like both were under utilized all year long. With an increased emphasis on the running game and a deceptive scheme there should be a lot of wide open receivers for the Browns this year
 
Adding in a third down catch machine in Austin Hooper oh my.. The room is stacked.
 
Offensive Line Grade: B Minus
The OL has been a major issue at the tackle spot since Joe Thomas retired. It now feels like we have the complete package assuming Wills can make the transition to LT in this super strange offseason. The interior is still super solid. There will be a lot riding on the rookie.
 
Defensive Line A Minus
Oh noooooo MYLES!!!! How different would 2019 have been had Myles Garrett kept his cool. Fresh off signing a new mega deal Myles Garrett needs to be the great pass rusher he has been in his first few seasons. He was averaging a sack per game before the suspension and should easily go into double digit sacks this season as well.
Olivier Vernon when healthy is a QB pressure machine but he has problems staying on the field. When he is playing though He and Myles make a great bookend.
The interior is solid with Sheldon Richardson and Larry O, in the middle. This will probably be Richardson's last year with the Browns so I expect him to show out to push for that one last contract.
 
Linebackers Grade: I was told there would be no math
Do I believe in Mack Wilson? Ask me on a day he writes a fired up hype tweet and I will say he is going to be a stud. In the quiet times though I think to myself boy I hope the opposing team does not have a decent tight end because our LB core is going to get burned. I don't know what to think of the rest of the room as it is totally shuffled. Maybe Takitaki is something more than a special teamer? Was B.J. Goodson a diamond waiting to be polished?
The Browns need Takitaki, Wilson, and Phillips to grow up fast in this defense. Goodson has been a part-time player in his career and should have the opportunity to get more playing time than he has had to date in his career. With a one-year prove-it deal, Goodson has the motivation to show that he deserves a multi-year deal.
This is by far on paper the weak point of this team.
 
Cornerback Grade: B
This is the Ward and Greedy Show. Ward is occasionally dinged up but most of the time he is a shut down corner. Super young and is a willing tackler if a bit reckless in his form. Ward has the potential to be a top 5 CB in the league.
Greedy Williams had a decent season on the other side when he got into the game but it is his spot full time now and he needs to step up. The talk when he was drafted was he could not tackle. (Much like Delpit this year) but he showed he was more than willing to tackle and even come up and rush the passer and play the run when needed. With Ward on the other side he is going to be targeted a LOT.
 
Safety Grade: D
Who the hell knows.. Really. I know I said that Linebacker was the weak point but man Safety is as much of a question. Karl Joseph is a Thumper and with that he ends up injured a bit. Delpit has huge potential but is a rookie at FS and but supposedly has tackling issues. Outside of those two you have Sendejo in his 11th year in the league and Sheldrick Redwine who was a beast in college but has yet to really prove himself in the league.
Here is hoping Delpit lives up to his potential because man this is a thin group.
 
Specialists Grade: B
Scottish Hammer That is all... The Punter might be the best form tackler on the team hopefully he does not have to do that this season. Or we can stick him in at Linebacker.
But seriously things stabilized with two rookie kickers last year and they both look serviceable. Jojo Natson was brought in to do one thing and that is to return kicks.
 
 
Training Camp Battles
 
On Offense there is very little up for grabs maybe who wins the 3rd WR spot but given Higgins relationship with Mayfield it is his job to lose.
On Defense a lot of the battle is going to be who shows up at LB and Safety as discussed above. there are slim pickings at both positions and really the only people who seem to be safe are Mack Wilson just due to the playing time he got last season and Karl Joseph just based upon his experience in the league.
 
 
Scheme Descriptions
 
Offense: Kevin Stefanski as Minnesota’s offensive coordinator in 2019 produced an offense determined to run the ball and crush teams with play-action. Under the watchful eye of consultant Gary Kubiak he installed a Wide Zone blocking scheme that is time tested and very OL and RB friendly. It is considered a Run first offense which should play right into the Browns strengths. If Mayfield can tighten up the play action fake game the Wide outs should feast as well.
 
Defense - Who knows? I am not even sure Joe Woods knows yet what type of Defense the Browns will run. During his tenure as the Denver Broncos defensive coordinator he ran a Base 3-4 Under defense. During his time with the Minnesota Vikings the team ran a base 4-3 which is also the case for the San Francisco 49ers defense this past season.
When asked Woods usually replies with something along the lines of "it's a secret"
Based on the Browns current roster,the preference would be an attacking 4-3 scheme given the strength on the defensive line and questionable linebacker core.
 
 
Season Predictions
It is an impossible task to predict a Browns season. Typically you could say 3 - 5 wins and chances are you would be right. This season with a new head coach, no preseason, maybe no training camp who the hell knows.
So instead of going game by game I am going to make some bold predictions.
  • The Browns will make the playoffs
  • Nick Chubb will win the rushing title
  • Jarvis Landry and OBJ will both go over 1000 yards again
  • The Browns will split all of the division games
  • The Steelers, Ravens, and Art Modell still suck
  • Final Record 10-6 with a Wild Card game win
 
 
Thank You's and Final Thoughts
If you read all this you are a better person than I. Big thanks to u/Marzman315 for lending me the draft section. Also a hearty Woof Woof to u/Usuallyrelevant who keeps us entertained over at Browns
Also the crew at LakeErieBros for sharing together our collective misery.
And finally I want to thank the Bull City Browns Backers in Durham NC for being awesome and showing up to every game with hope in your heart and unwavering dedication.

I did not hear from the non fan for the post so maybe we can add it later.

2020.07.23 15:59 goingsouthhiker 2020 Offseason Review Series - Cleveland Browns

Cleveland Browns

Division: AFC North
Record: 6 - 10
Introduction
Hey everyone u/goingsouthhiker here to provide you more information than you ever wanted to know about the Cleveland Browns. My first distinct memory as a child is my fathers face in stunned silence as Ernest Byner fumbled at the goaline. I have been gifted through some sick hereditary defect a lifelong love of the Browns. so here you go.
 
Coaching Changes/GM Changes
 
Freddie Kitchens Fired  
On December 29th, 2019, the Browns fired head coach Freddie Kitchens. This is the culmination of a coaching hire that seemed to be entirely based upon folksy blue collar catch phrases “if you don’t wear brown and orange, you don’t matter” and a good relationship with Baker Mayfield.  
Some of Freddie's greatest hits included
  • 4th and 9 - Draw Play
  • Madden Style 5 WR streaks from your own goal line
  • Send out the punt team on 4th-and-11 down 17 points in the fourth quarter to the New England Patriots, only to change his mind and take a deliberate false start rather than burn a timeout.
  • 4th and 1 on the goal line and not have Nick Chubb on the field
 
John Dorsey Fired  
On December 31st, 2019, the Browns and general manager John Dorsey mutually agreed to part ways after an up and down tenure that brought in a lot of talent but ultimately the decision to hire Kitchens and some questionable high draft picks sank him.
 
Kevin Stefanski Hired  
On January 13th, 2020, the Browns hired former Minnesota Vikings' offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski as head coach. This is another first time head coach hire for the browns after an exhaustive coaching search. This hire is the one Paul Depodesta of Moneyball Fame banged the table for prior to the promotion of Kitchens so ultimately the nerds won the battle a year too late.
 
Andrew Berry Hired  
On January 27th, 2020, the Browns hired former Philadelphia Eagles' vice president of football operations Andrew Berry as general manager. Berry previously served as the Browns' vice president of player personnel from 2016–18 under Sashi Brown. At age 32, Berry became the youngest general manager in NFL history.
Berry has been considered in league circles as the next great rising front office star even from his early days in Indianapolis. Ivy league educated and an analytics darling now paired again with Depodesta the Browns will be heavy into analytics and efficiency in their decision making.
 
Alex Van Pelt Hired  
On January 29th 2020, the Browns hired former Cincinnati Bengals' quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt as offensive coordinator. Van Pelt, who served as offensive coordinator for the Buffalo Bills in 2009, replaced Todd Monken, who was not retained by Stefanski.
Nobody is quite sure who will be calling plays on game day, The one thing going for this hire is when Van Pelt was the QB Coach for Green Bay Aaron Rodgers was super angry about Van Pelt being fired so there is that.
 
Joe Woods Hired  
On February 7th 2020, the Browns hired former San Francisco 49ers' defensive backs coach Joe Woods as defensive coordinator. Woods, who previously served as the defensive coordinator for the Denver Broncos from 2017–18, replaced Steve Wilks, who was not retained by Stefanski
Woods is a man of mystery he has coached just about every scheme in existence and has given the ever popular "We will tailor our defense to our personnel" answer every time somebody tries to get anything out of him in regards to what he plans to run in Cleveland.
 
Free Agency
Players lost/cut
Player Position New Team
Joe Schobert LB Jacksonville
Christian Kirksey LB Green Bay
Eric Kush G Las Vegas
Demetrius Harris TE Chicago
T.J. Carrie CB Indianapolis
Damarious Randall S Las Vegas
Greg Robinson T Prison
Rickey Seals Jones TE Kansas City
Adarius Taylor LB Released
Morgan Burnett S Released
Eric Murray S Houston
Going into the 2019 season the Browns defense had a lack of quality depth at LB and Safety. So naturally the first thing the Browns do in Free Agency is let go the remaining veteran players at LB and Safety. I can't say for certain this was a bad thing as you will see below.
 
Top Losses
 
Joe Shobert LB - Was a tackling machine and rare pro bowler on this team, however too many of those tackles were made 8-10 yards downfield on run plays. His coverage skills were raw as well so I get not paying him big money.
Christian Kirksey LB - This one hurts a bit not due to production on the field as Kirko was hurt a lot! But more so as he was that beloved master of the Dawg Check and was a great team guy.
Damarious Randall S - A solid player who the Browns converted back to Safety but was always a bit of a headcase. He will be remembered best as the player who intercepted a Bengals pass and handed the ball to Hue Jackson on the Bengals sideline.
 
Players Signed/Brought Back
Player Position Contract
Kareem Hunt RB 1yr $3.25M
Case Keenum QB 3yr $18M
Andy Janovich FB Trade w/Broncos
Jack Conklin T 3yr $42M
Austin Hooper TE 4yr $44M
Karl Joseph S 1yr $2.5M
Andrew Billings DL 1yr $3.5M
Kevin Johnson CB 1yr $3.5M
Andrew Sendejo S 1yr $2.5M
Evan Brown C No Details
Donovan Olumba CB No Details
JoJo Natson WR 1yr $1M
BJ Goodson LB 1yr $2.4M
Chris Hubbard T Restructured
Adrian Clayborn EDGE 1yr $2.4M
Olivier Vernon EDGE Restructured
Myles Garrett EDGE So Much Money
Rashard Higgins WR 1yr 910k
 
Man this is a list... Ok so there were very few holes on Offense going into Free Agency but the ones that stood out were both tackles and depth at tight end. The Browns ultimately solved one tackle spot and TE really early in Free Agency with what most considered the best available players at their position.
On the Defensive side we had a open call for any experienced body who wanted to take a 1 year prove it deal. So much depth added via players that fell through the cracks on their former team.
 
Top Signings
 
Jack Conklin RT - The top right tackle in free agency, had a nice season for the titans after coming off a major injury the year before. Can be a All-Pro caliber RT if healthy. Really filled a huge need.
Austin Hooper TE - or "HooooooP" As the falcons fans tell me I am to call him. Filled a big need for reliable catches at the TE position. With David Njoku in the dog house, unable to catch anything, and now asking for a trade this is a big get for the Browns.
Andy Janovich FB - By far my personal favorite signing. Acquired in a trade with the Broncos he is one of the best pure Fullbacks left in the game. I expect him to be a Fan Favorite quickly. There is nothing more that Cleveland Fans adore than elevating a former Broncos fullback to Legendary status.(See Peyton Hillis)
Case Keenum - Browns fans all hope that the Baker Mayfield of last year was a product of really bad coaching, however Keenum can win games in the NFL and is a familiar face to new coach Stefanski having had a career year with Minnesota with Stefanski as his QB coach. I am much more confident in having Keenum as the backup than Garrett Gilbert.
New Contracts - The Browns have ensured Myles Garrett will be a Brown for a long while, placed a 2nd round tender on former rushing champ Kareem hunt, and after briefly flirting with Clowney decided to restructure Olivier Vernon to a much better contract number befitting his oft injured yet surprisingly productive season.
 
 
Draft - Cribbed from u/Marzman315 with permission who did a very excellent defending the draft and I agree with it in it's entirety. The Grades are mine.
 
Round Player Position
1.10 Jedrick Wills T
2.44 Grant Delpit S
3.88 Jordan Elliott DT
3.97 Jacob Phillips ILB
4.115 Harrison Bryant TE
5.160 Nick Harris C
6.187 Donovan Peoples-Jones WR
 
1.10 - Jedrick Wills Jr., Offensive Tackle Alabama Grade A  
As expected, the Browns used the tenth overall pick on a tackle. The tackle turned out to be Jedrick Wills Jr., blindside blocker for Tua Tagovailoa. The former four star high school prospect started all 28 games for the Crimson Tide over his sophomore and and junior years. As a second team All-American and first team All-SEC player, he paved the way for Alabama's elite offense with his quick feet, smooth redirection, extremely powerful anchor and strength, and absolutely punishing punch.  
This pick was overwhelmingly approved of by analysts both internally and externally. Joe Thomas released a reaction video that was enthusiastic to say the least. He made it clear that Wills was his ideal target for the Browns at 10th overall. The front office and coaching staff made it known that Wills was their priority target going into the draft, and were entertaining the possibility of trading up for him, but ultimately the draft board fell their way and they got their man at 10.  
The only negative to the drafting of Wills is that he has only played right tackle in his college career, and given the free agent signing of right tackle Jack Conklin, Wills is going to be expected to transition to left tackle to start his NFL career. Joe Thomas also gave input on this, and stated that while the transition is difficult it is easier to do early in your career, and that he would personally take Wills under his wing and mentor him. Between Joe Thomas's guidance and the coaching of veteran offensive line coach Bill Callahan, not to mention the phenomenal talent of Wills, the transition should be doable for Wills with a minimum of serious difficulty. The protection of franchise QB Baker Mayfield is of paramount importance, and this selection reflects that.
 
2.44 - Grant Delpit, Safety LSU Grade A  
Most Browns fans anticipated that a safety specializing in coverage would be a priority target on day 2. With replacing Damarious Randall a necessity, the Browns zeroed in on LSU standout Grant Delpit. Boasting phenomenal range, excellent ball skills, and tremendous athleticism for the position, he brings an impressive skill set to the team.
Once considered a top 15 to top 20 pick, injuries and questions about tackling caused his value to drop a bit over the season. His broken clavicle in 2018 likely led to a hesitation in committing fully to tackles, and his production in that sense dropped in 2019. Despite some questions about open field tackling, Delpit's football IQ, versatility, and ball skills are enough to excite Browns fans into thinking that they found a solid starter.
 
3.88 - Jordan Elliot, Defensive Tackle Missouri Grade B  
In a post draft interview, Browns Chief Strategist Paul DePodesta revealed that obtaining 2021 draft capital was a priority coming into the draft. Depth along the defensive line has been an issue for the Browns for some time. Both of these issues were addressed with the Browns first pick in the third round.
Jordan Elliot is well known in the scouting community for being the darling prospect of Pro Football Focus, who consistently rated him as a first round prospect. While he lacks some power and length, he has a lightning quick first step and fluid pass rushing skills. His skill set doesn't exactly project him to be an every down player, but he can be a strong gap penetrating 3T rotating along the Browns defensive line.
 
3.97 - Jacob Phillips, Linebacker LSU Grade C Minus
Joe Shobert led the Browns in tackles in two of the last three seasons. Replacing that production was certainly a concern of the Browns. Phillips is an athletic linebacker that led a powerhouse LSU team in tackles. He is strong against the run, and plays fast and strong with solid instincts.
Phillips likely may not replace Shobert's pass coverage, as coverage skills were a clear negative on Phillips' scouting report. But as far as reliable tackling goes Phillips can contribute early, especially on special teams and base defense.
 
4.115 - Harrison Bryant, Tight End Florida Atlantic Grade A
Kevin Stefanski's offense notably uses multiple tight end sets and 12 personnel. Harrison Bryant is a very exciting receiving threat at the TE position. He projects mainly as a depth player behind Austin Hooper and David Njoku (if he remains on the team) currently while he develops his overall game, but he likely sees the field a bit as a rookie. He doesn't bring much to the table as far as blocking goes, but there is absolutely some exciting upside here.
 
5.160 - Nick Harris, Guard/Center Washington Grade C
While the Browns O-line was the subject of well deserved criticisms in 2019, the interior of the line was quietly fairly solid. Left guard Joel Bitonio is among the best in the league at his position and Center JC Tretter is a pro bowl caliber player. Wyatt Teller was unspectacular but played well enough to bring a bit of stability to the position. Lacking at the interior o-line was any sort of depth.
With years of experience at guard and center, Nick Harris will add solid depth and may compete with Teller for the starting right guard spot. He is a smart and nimble pass blocker, and while he doesn't have ideal size for the position (6'1" 300 LB) he uses his low center of gravity effectively to secure a solid base.
 
6.187 - Donovan Peoples-Jones, Wide Receiver Michigan Grade A (upside)
Wide receiver was sneakily a bit of a need for the Browns going into the 2020 draft. Odell Beckham Jr and Jarvis Landry are among the best 1/2 starters in the NFL, but after them the depth chart is thin.
Peoples-Jones is a perfect prospect to gamble on. He showed flashes of phenomenal play while at Michigan, and was considered at one point to be a future first round pick and NFL star. Injuries and abysmal QB play severely hindered his college career. His production did not come close to matching his talent. He is athletic, runs clean routes, gets solid separation, and is good with the ball in his hands. There is a lot of talent here that can be developed.
 
Undrafted Free Agents:
Soloman Ajayi, Linebacker, Liberty
Elijah Benton, Safety, Liberty
Ja'Marcus Bradley, Wide Receiver, Louisiana
Tony Brown, Wide Receiver, Colorado
Kevin Davidson, Quarterback, Princeton
Drake Dorbeck, Offensive Tackle/Guard, Southern Mississippi
A.J. Green, Cornerback, Oklahoma State
Brian Herrion, Runningback, Georgia
Jameson Houston, Cornerback, Baylor
Benny LeMay, Runningback, Charlotte
Jovante Moffit, Safety, Middle Tennessee
George Obinna, Defensive End, Sacremento State
Alex Taylor, Offensive Tackle, South Carolina State
Jeffrey Whatley, Defensive Tackle, South Alabama
Nate Wieting, Tight End, Iowa
 
Going Forward:
You will have a hard time finding a Browns fan who did not love this draft. They filled all of their pressing needs without reaching, were savvy navigating the board with trades, and acquired 2021 draft picks. The Browns earned one of only four A+ grades from PFF. While the roster is not without some holes, particularly at linebacker, this is a team that is built to compete. With improvements on the offense that will hopefully come with better coaching and a brand new O-line, the Browns are absolutely in a better position this year than last

2020.07.15 18:02 LearningIsListening A not-so-brief rundown of letters J-L of Jeffrey Epstein's 'Little Black Book'

Below is a rundown of letters J-L of Epstein's contacts. Last year, I wrote about letters A-C. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/cpis3n/a_brief_rundown_of_the_first_ten_pages_of_jeffrey/).
I also wrote about letters D-F on July 5, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hlrba8/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_letters_df_in_jeffrey/).
I posted letters G-I on July 13, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hqko0y/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_letters_gi_in_jeffrey/). There are some misspelled names. Epstein entered their names like this.
I have bolded some of the more interesting connections and information, but there could be much more that I overlooked. I hope something here strikes an interest in someone and maybe we can get more investigations out of this. Please, if you know anything more about any of these people than what is presented here, post below. I am working off of the unredacted black book found here: https://www.coreysdigs.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Jeffrey-Epsteins-Little-Black-Book-unredacted.pdf
J-L
Jackson, Michael (Samuel Gen): Yes, this is a reference to MJ the singer. However, the numbers listed are not MJ’s. They belong to Samuel Gen, a lawyer for a financial advisor (Jerry Seinfeld’s brother-in-law) who worked for MJ for a while. This one was a reach for Epstein.
Jacobson, Julian: Likely a reference to a Managing Director at several London-based investment firms.
Jagger, Mick: World-famous lead singer of the Rolling Stones. Has been seen in photographs with Ghislaine Maxwell. Actress Rae Dawn Chong claims she slept with Jagger when she was 15 years old.
Jagger, Hatti: Former fashion director for Vogue, Harper’s, and Tatler. Also works as a celebrity stylist and at fashion shows.
jake: Not enough info.
Jameel, Mohammed: Saudi Arabian businessman. CEO of Abdul Latif Jameel, a collective of family-owned businesses that specialize in transportation, investing, and real estate. Royal pervert Prince Andrew infamously partied on Jameel’s yacht during the 2011 London riots (source: https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/prince-andrew-frolicks-on-yacht-with-mystery-147496).
James, Susie: Founder and owner of 123 Send Ltd, a company that provides payment terminals.
Janklow, Linda: Literary agent and wife of Mort Janklow, the primary owner of Janklow & Nesbit Associates, the largest literary agency in the world. Attended a party hosted by Sony Pictures with Epstein, although they are not pictured together (source: https://www.patrickmcmullan.com/search/?event=5b3ef4fb9f92906676446c21). In 2007, Ghislaine Maxwell threw an exclusive party (80 carefully selected guests) at her NYC townhouse to celebrate the opening of a new shop by designer Allegra Hicks (granddaughter-in-law of Earl Mountbatten, who you can read more about in my G-I Epstein thread under India Hicks’s name). One of the eighty guests was Julie Landlow, daughter of Linda and Mort.
Jarecki, Nancy & Andrew: Andrew is a filmmaker, co-founder of Moviefone, and was a producer on Catfish, the documentary that launched the popular MTV show. Andrew’s family was reportedly friends with Jeffrey Epstein. There is an EXCELLENT thread on the connections between the Jarecki family (especially Andrew and Nick’s father, Henry) and Epstein here (source: https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1200044576947556352.html). Quick summary: Henry was born in Nazi Germany; flew on the Lolita Express; is an expert in psychotropic drugs; owns two islands in the British Virgin Islands; founded the first youth center in the British Virgin Islands; lived 2 miles from Epstein in NYC; owns and donates to many sketchy foundations, schools, and organizations; has donated at least $1 million to leftist organizations). Andrew’s wife Nancy created bettybeauty, a company that specializes in hair dye for your nether regions (not kidding).
Jarecki, Nick: The movie director brother of Andrew and son of Henry Jarecki (see link under Andrew & Nancy Jarecki for more info). Reportedly dated Courtney Love (also in Epstein’s ‘Black Book’) in 2015. Photographed with Ghislaine Maxwell at a Gucci party (source: https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/ghislaine-maxwell-and-nick-jarecki-attend-gucci-hosts-a-news-photo/591605562).
Jason (canada): Not enough info. Could be artist Jason Wasserman based out of Canada. The second number listed traces back to Station 16 Gallery in Montreal.
Javier: Javier Banon is former Co-head of Merchant Banking at Lehman Brothers and current Founding Partner of Trilantic Europe.
Jeffries, Tim: Ownedirector of Hamiltons Gallery in London. Best known for dating models Elle Macpherson, Claudia Schiffer, Kylie Minogue and Sophie Dahl (also in Epstein’s ‘Black Book’). Jefferies has attended fundraisers for ARK Academy and the NSPCC. He truly cares about children.
Johnson, Richard & Nadine: Nadine is a millionaire public relations guru. Nadine is a good friend of Ghislaine Maxwell’s. Some clients of Nadine Johnson include spirit cooking extraordinaire Marina Abramovic and hotelier Andre Balazs, good friend of Ghislaine. Richard is one of the most well-known gossip columnists and was the editor of Page Six for twenty-five years. There is a great thread detailing the Johnsons’ ties to the Clintons, Balazs, and others here (source: https://threader.app/thread/1162148078981394432). Basically, Richard Johnson is friendly with the Clintons and, as Page Six Editor, purposely did not report or downplayed stories on the Clintons and Nadine’s clients. He also took bribes. Considering Nadine is a good friend of Ghislaine, it would not be a stretch to assume that Richard could have buried stories on Maxwell and Epstein. I could spend 10 pages on the shady connections these two have.
Johnson, Lucy: Not enough info.
Jones, Ann & Mick: Mick is the guitarist of Foreigner, an immensely popular rock band in the ‘70s and ‘80s. His wife, Ann, is a jewelry designer, and friend of Ghislaine. Ann Jones was photographed at a party with Ghislaine and Donald Trump in 1997 (source: https://www.the-sun.com/news/85818/epstein-madam-ghislaine-maxwell-milked-billionaire-dad-and-threw-lavish-parties-with-beautiful-women/)
Josephson, Barry & Jackie: Barry is a producer and the former President of Production for Columbia Pictures. Jackie is his ex-wife and also a producer.

Katzeneilenbogen, Mark: Long-time investment banker who used to be based out of South Africa.
Keeling, Sarah: There is a Sarah Keeling in London who is a former British government official with 20 years of experience in national security and intelligence experience, however, the phone number listed has a 410 area code, which leads back to eastern Maryland. Inconclusive.
Kegan, Rory: A nightclub designer and creator. Co-founder of the exclusive, celebrity-filled London nightclub, Chinawhite. Prince Andrew (source: https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/9818190/prince-andrew-pictures-cast-doubt-epstein-sex-slave/) and Prince Albert of Monaco are regulars. Chelsea Clinton has been there, as well (source: https://www.standard.co.uk/news/bright-night-for-china-white-6299739.html). Other patrons include: Prince Andrew, Kate Middleton, George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio, and more.

Keller, Georgie: Interior designer.
Kellette Frayse, Caroline: Fashion editor at Vogue and Tatler (both magazines constantly come up in Epstein’s contacts). Former girlfriend of Imran Khan, whose name has come up frequently. Passed away in 2014. Her husband, Jean-Marc Fraysse, is a French investment banker.
Kelmenson, Leo-Arthur & Gayl: Leo was an advertising and marketing guru who has been credited with saving Chrysler. Friend and advisor to Lee Iacocca, former President of Chrysler. He worked as Special Project Officer for the U.S. Department of State under President John F. Kennedy and AG Robert F. Kennedy. He had tons of connections. His former maid accused him of sexual harassment in 2010 (source: https://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/maid-harassment-suit-claims-ad-exec-leo-arthur-kelmenson-madman-pervy-mad-men-wannabe-article-1.156915). Kelmenson died less than two months after the story came out.
Kennedy Cuomo, Andrew & Kerry: Andrew is the current governor of New York. It’s no secret that Cuomo is willing to look the other way on sexual deviancy as long as he receives a payoff. Cuomo halted a probe into the handling of Harvey Weinstein’s case in New York after receiving $25,000 from Weinstein’s law firm (source: https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/bjbqg4/andrew-cuomo-received-dollar25000-donation-from-harvey-weinsteins-law-firm). Andrew’s brother, CNN Host Chris Cuomo famously told viewers “not to get caught up in the intrigue of who Epstein’s friends are” (source: https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2019/07/11/cnn_cuomo_lets_not_get_caught_up_in_the_intrigue_of_who_was_friends_with_jeffrey_epstein.html). Perhaps, he was covering for his brother. Kerry Kennedy is Cuomo’s ex-wife of fifteen years, the daughter of RFK, and a close friend of Ghislaine Maxwell. Supposedly, Kennedy provided Ghislaine with informal illegal advice (source: https://www.splicetoday.com/politics-and-media/the-nth-word-and-m-theory).
Kennedy Jr. Ted: Son of Ted Kennedy and nephew of JFK and RFK. Ted Jr. dabbled in politics and currently works as a lawyer. His father, Ted, was a notorious sexual abuser (allegedly).
Kennedy, Bobby & Mary: Bobby is the son of RFK and nephew of JFK. Bobby is a known drug abuser and philanderer. Bobby kept a sex journal detailing his conquests while he was married (source: https://nypost.com/2013/09/08/rfk-jr-s-sex-diary-of-adultery/). His ex-wife, Mary, committed “suicide” two years after their divorce. Before committing suicide, Mary told a friend that she “feared for her life” and Bobby told her that she “would be better off dead” (source: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3231043/How-serial-cheater-Bobby-Kennedy-Jr-strutted-family-home-exposing-private-parts-demanded-m-nage-trois-wife-Mary-went-public-Cheryl-Hines-telling-Mary-things-easier-killed-herself.html).
Kennedy, Ethel: Widow of RFK Sr. and mother of eleven, including Bobby Kennedy, Kerry Kennedy, and Joseph Kennedy II.
Kennedy, Jo: Joseph Kennedy II is the son of RFK Sr. and Ethel. Served in the House of Representatives from 1987-1999. In 1973, Joseph was convicted of negligent driving after paralyzing a young woman. He was fined $100.
Kennedy, Senator Edward: Brother of JFK and RFK, Ted Kennedy served as U.S. Senator of Massachusetts for 47 years. Besides politics, Ted is best known for the Chappaquiddick incident in which a young female speechwriter for RFK drowned to death when he lost control of his vehicle while driving across a bridge. He was charged with leaving the scene of an incident and given a two month suspended sentence. Ted was also notorious for his extramarital affairs. Senator Kennedy once hosted a party at his house attended by Bill Clinton and Lynn Forester de Rothschild. Rothschild wrote a letter to Clinton afterwards in which she mentions that they spoke about Epstein (source: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7283825/Jeffrey-Epstein-injured-jail-cell-following-possible-suicide-assault.html). It is unclear what was said or what Rothschild’s connection could possibly be.
Kersner, Sol: South African accountant and hotel and casino magnate who died of cancer in 2020. Kerzner was a close friend of Donald Trump. They even worked together to create The Palm, a man-made island off the coast of Dubai (source: https://www.ft.com/content/46393280-d9f9-11da-b7de-0000779e2340). Kerzner was also close friends with Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York (https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/sarah-ferguson-the-duchess-of-york-sol-kerzner-chairman-and-news-photo/83768272), Naomi Campbell (https://www.gettyimages.ca/detail/news-photo/naomi-campbell-and-sol-kerzner-pose-backstage-during-the-news-photo/82869744), and Bill Clinton (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8144647/As-Sol-Kerzner-dies-aged-84-RICHARD-KAY-looks-riotously-louche-life.html). Kerzner was very good friends with Nelson Mandela and built his casino resorts with Gerard Inzerillo, who you can read about in my G-I ‘Black Book’ thread.

Kidd is an interesting figure with elite connections. From 2005-2012, Ghislaine Maxwell served as Director of Jemma Kidd Make-Up Limited, a U.K. makeup company, which was founded by Kidd. Not only did Ghislaine serve as Director, but she was also a shareholder, along with the Rothschild family (source: https://nationalpost.com/news/world/in-hiding-for-years-epstein-accomplice-ghislaine-maxwell-spotted-in-l-a-burger-shop). If you click around the PDFs on this website (https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/05340072/filing-history), you can see everything. The 16 JUN 2006 PDF on page 3 shows you a list of Officers and shareholders of the company. Jemma Kidd has also attended charity events for the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) (https://www.alamy.com/stock-photo-beckham-nspcc-party-jemma-kidd-106882170.html). Her sister, Jodie, is also a huge supportefundraiser of the NSPCC, as well as the Help a London Child and Monsoon Accessorize Trust charities, both of which help out disadvantaged children (source: https://www.looktothestars.org/celebrity/jodie-kidd).

Kissinger, Dr. Henry A: Former U.S. Secretary of State and National Security Advisor under Nixon. Kissinger has long been accused of committing war crimes (ex: carpet bombing Cambodia, installing fascist governments in Chile and Argentina, genocide, extending our stay in Vietnam, etc) yet somehow managed to win a Nobel Peace Prize in 1973. Kissinger once said, “Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy.” Kissinger served with Epstein on the Trilateral Commission. Kissinger has also been a member of the Bilderberg Group, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Aspen Institute, and Bohemian Grove. Long thought to be an advocate for a globalist New World Order, Kissinger is a scumbag of the highest order. His connections with Gates, the Clintons, Bush Sr. and Jr., the Rockefellers, and the Rothschilds are well-documented. If anyone here has ever done any research regarding the NWO, you have undoubtedly seen Kissinger’s name several times.
Klee, Rupert & Charlotte de: Rupert is a Director with Oakridge Group, a property development and investment company. His wife, Charlotte, is the producer of the religious plays at Wintershall.

When he ran on the Libertarian ticket as the vice presidential nominee in 1980, Koch aimed to abolish Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, welfare benefits, and minimum wage. Koch and Epstein were friends. Epstein even attended a party at Koch’s Southampton home (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7270735/Jeffrey-Epstein-Trumps-closest-advisers-Wilbur-Ross-Rudy-Giuliani-Steve-Mnunchin.html).

John is a former banker with Morgan Stanley and current President of GCA-US, an investment banking company.

Lawton Paul: Two British businessmen with the same name come up. Both have extensive resumes. Could be either one.

Models1 also represents Epstein and Ghislaine’s friend, Naomi Campbell. Le Bon has been accused of sexual assault in the past (https://www.freep.com/story/news/2018/07/12/simon-le-bons-accuser-sex-assault-claim-speaks-out-awful/777106002/).
Le Fur, Jean-Yves: French businessman and magazine creator. He was once Princess Stephanie of Monaco’s ex-fiance. More notably, Le Fur was the one who discovered supermodel Karen Mulder (his girlfriend at the time) on the floor after she attempted suciide. Mulder blew the lid off the rampant rape and sexual abuse that she and her modeling colleagues had suffered at the hands of businessmen, royalty, celebrities, and government officials. She was even the protege of Epstein collaborator (allegedly), Jean Luc Brunel (https://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/article238351108.html).
Le Marg Willie: No info found.
Lea, Piers: CEO of Learning Technologies Group, a workplace digital learning company.
Leeds, Jeffrey: Co-founder and Managing Partner of Leeds Equity. One of Leeds Equity’s partner companies is Endeavor Schools, which runs private preschools, primary schools, and secondary schools in Florida and 11 other states (https://www.leedsequity.com/news/articles/leeds-equity-partners-completes-investment-in-endeavor-schools). They are also partners with Fusion Educational Group (now Fusion Academy), which runs a chain of private secondary schools (https://www.leedsequity.com/news/articles/leeds-equity-partners-completes-investment-in-fusion-education-group). Former teacher Kris White, now the head of Fusion Academy in Palo Alto, allegedly told a student that he was in love with her and wrote her a note saying he was “obsessed” with her. (https://www.mercurynews.com/2020/07/12/teachers-named-in-presentation-high-sex-investigation-kept-working-as-bay-area-educators-for-years/). This story was just published on July 12, 2020. Hypothetically, if one wanted to procure underage children, it would certainly help if the head of the school was on board and possibly a pedophile himself. According to this former teacher at Fusion Academy, “many students struggle with learning differences, behavioral issues, and/or addictions” (https://www.glassdoor.com/Reviews/Employee-Review-Fusion-Academy-RVW21260629.htm). In other words, the downtrodden and vulnerable. Fusion Academy refers to itself as a non-traditional school that focuses on individual students. Seems like a great opportunity. Leeds was also good friends with Epstein (https://nymag.com/nymetro/news/people/n_7912/) and has close ties to Colin Powell and Rudy Giuliani (https://nypost.com/2016/09/14/colin-powell-wont-vote-for-her-because-of-bill-clinton/).

Her husband, Roger, is the founder of beauty.com and Chairman and CEO of Shaklee, a highly successful nutrition company. Donald Trump, Melania Trump, and Ghislaine Maxwell all attended the publication party for Sloan’s book in 2008 (https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/ghislaine-maxwell-anton-katz-and-robin-katz-attend-sloan-news-photo/619921016 ; https://www.gettyimages.co.uk/detail/news-photo/donald-trump-melania-trump-sloan-barnett-and-roger-barnett-news-photo/619921180).Other guests included Steve Mnuchin, Epstein and Maxwell chum Carol Mack, and a bunch of others also featured in Epstein’s ‘Black Book’ (Colin Cowie, Anton and Robin Katz, and Vittorio Assaf).

Lorimer, John & Lottie: John works as a private investor and as a realtor. His wife, Lottie, is an interior designer.
Louthan Guy J: Prolific British film producer and former boyfriend of actress Liz Hurley (also in Epstein’s book).

Courtney famously claimed that Prince Andrew showed up to her house late one night in 2000 looking for sex. She has since retracted this claim. The entries under Love’s name all say ‘Dana’ next to them. This is Courtney’s ex-boyfriend, Dana Giacchetto. Giacchetto was considered to be the “stockbroker to the stars” and was friends with JFK Jr, Leonardo DiCaprio, Johnny Depp, and many others. He ripped his clients off of millions. Even more telling, Giacchetto was involved in a sex abuse case against X-Men director Bryan Singer (https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/news/leonardo-dicaprios-convicted-ex-money-manager-denies-bryan-050000120.html).

2020.05.18 12:56 Kingsnorth9900 Help me to work him out?

So this is long and I know I won’t get any real answers but it’ll help me to get it out and get opinions
I have so much in common with the guy I’m dating. Main thing being the fact that we both have anxiety and also that we both lost our dads in 2019 in the same month. He was a lot closer to his dad and lived with him so said he “grieved” differently and was drinking & arguing alot with his gf at the time. They were together 5 years and she ended it towards the beginning of this year but he spent a month trying to win her back but she wasn’t interested. She is still a little on the scene but he’s open saying that they’ll remain friends etc. I have him on Facebook and he still has her on there. I don’t see it as a big issue as he has a lot of girl mates and seems to just get on with everyone around him.
When we first met online he was infatuated by me and couldn’t believe I was interested in him. We spoke constantly then it started to die out so I assumed he wasn’t interested, he said he was just getting more comfortable with me etc.
We speak in some form every day and have seen each other a few times. Last week, I didn’t reply to him for a few hours and he video called me all anxious/moody and I had to somewhat bring him out of it. However, he ignores me for hours by reading a message but he will always respond at some point.
We used to do morning/night messages but they’re not often now.
This weekend gone we asked each other if we were talking to anyone else we both said no. He mentioned he had got his ex a trip to Amsterdam but he moved it to October and would I like to go with him (his actual words were “I still need a companion” but I said if he wants to ask me then do it properly lol which he sighed at but he did)
He’s quite closed off and there’s been a few evenings he will go and sit in his dads man shed and he’ll often take his dog for a walk to clear his head. Last week he was quiet and said he was just having one of those evenings.
Explaining his anxiety to me once he said he has a massive fear of rejection and he’ll probably always think I’m too good for him. That last bit baffles me especially on days I barely hear from him. He knows how interested I am.
We don’t have constant flowing conversations he seems more of a call person but he sometimes comes across not interested by his lack of communication and it raises my anxiety. Like I previously mentioned he won’t reply to me for hours but if I do it to him he sends a moody message then I’ll find myself explaining etc.
I asked him what he saw me as and he said “well you’re the lady I met online that I’ve seen a few times”. His family know about me and he’s always asking what I’ve told my friends etc.
We both said from the start we want something meaningful and I’ve said numerous times I’m not after fun.
Last week I nearly ended it all as he was pushing me away a lot, but we spoke and he looked almost tearful and annoyed at himself. He apologised.
Anyway yesterday he asked if I was feeling good about all this? (With the heart eyes emoji)
I said I was feeling positive and he said he was too.
Then my friend called, we were on the phone for a few hours girly chat. In that time he tried to video call me so I thought I’ll ring him back after. But he sent this message -
Didn’t fancy replying for 2 hours then?...tried to call and you’re on phone to someone else 👌🏻!
It gutted me. I didn’t understand why he was getting moody again. He takes hours and hours usually after reading my message to reply, I’ve never gone moody even if I have felt a bit pissed off.
Anyway it worked as I was then chasing him,I told him I was on the phone to my best friend and I’m not doing anything wrong... he video called and just seemed moody and not really interested but said he was tired...up early for work and he’d speak to me tomorrow (as in today...I’ve heard nothing from him)
It’s a bit upsetting as I thought we had got to a bit of a better stage...also he’s not trying hard enough to keep me interested or contact me etc but why is he getting moody with me as if I’m his girlfriend and should be answering to him? (Not that that’s right but at least be a bit more understandable)
He’s a very very attractive guy (somewhat David beckham looking) but says he hates photos of himself and doesn’t like to look in the mirror.
I haven’t messaged him today as I’m a bit gutted at what he did and think today he should be contacting me first really. I have told him how his lack of contact made it seem personal but he said no he’s just really comfortable with me (he even pushed out a huge fart on video call last week lol so THAT comfortable) and I can call his work phone if I need him. When we first started talking he made a point of giving me that number.
I just don’t know if I’m coming or going and he seems closed off so I don’t wanna challenge or push him. The arsy messages are starting to get to me though, I really like him and I couldn’t be clearer but I don’t know what he wants from me. I get so close then it’s like a wall goes back up and I just don’t understand anymore?

2020.05.14 07:54 dabyss9908 Manchester United Explanation for these IM cards: Giggsy, Beckham and Scholesy

Based on inspiration from a previous user and being a die hard Man Utd fan myself, I thought I could provide context of Man Utd IM series for the football noobs.
1) Giggs: April 14th 1999. Arsenal 1 Man Utd 2. Giggs scored a wonder solo goal and showed off his hairy bare chest. It is momentous for a reason. FA cup semis replay and into extra time, so the situation was hairy for both sides to tell the least.
2)David Beckham: 26th May 1999. See the date. Google It. A famous Champions League Final. Nobody thought United could win against that Bayern Munich side. I mean a name like Basler sends chills down your spines. But Beckham's crosses, Sherringham and Solskjaer's goals in Fergie time sunk the giants, and hence the dawn of an era of English football domination with the first (maybe the only) treble in English Football History.
3)Paul Scholes: 24th September 1998. (Actually 25th Sept it seems from the official PL website). Man Utd 2 - LFC 0. Denis Irwing scored a penalty in the 19th minute, and a Liverpool goal was ruled out for offside. Then came an inhuman goal. You guys complain about how COMs twist from weird angles to score accurately? Go see Scholes. Literally twisted and scored a goal straight into the left top corner with such power and distance. Liverpool would have felt cheated by the COM Lol.
Yeah, so that's the first edition. Based on reviews here I am open to writing more explanations in the future. I know Man Utd well, so I could write this. Other teams, need to see highlights and situations. See yall for now
