PaulsonWhat is our keeper policy? I can't remember. Somebody should start a thread.

I will be updating the Yahoo league on Thursday Night so it sends out email reminders that will allow previous owners to reclaim their team for the next season. And after I have updated us on the Yahoo site, I will then create a new fresh thread on the OT Forum. I believe we will just go ahead and draft on this site as well.

Anyway, to answer your question -- each team has two keepers.

MeowI immediately become a puddle of emotions every time I see these kind of videos. Usually they're kids getting cochlear implants, but man.

You even follow a twitter called "ClassicDadMoves?" You really are into dads, aren't you.

I think this was retweeted into my timeline so I'll blame another part of gay twitter for that.

I have a gay friend whose dad ditched the family when he was a kid and his choice of romantic partners seems a bit wrapped up in that. I guess a lot of people, straight or gay, are like that. Gross.

I have a great relationship with my dad which, although they'd never admit it, was always a relief to the older guys I've dated. I could just sort of tell they were like oh it's not that. And this is just going off the people I know, but a lot of gay men have way more complicated relationships with their moms (me included) than their dads. I think fathers, if it does pose a problem, are less likely to express it or even acknowledge that feeling. Women of a certain age understand they've been coerced to give up something to focus on family and a gay relationship can be seen as a refutation of that idea. One of many reasons we should dismantle the patriarchy, bros and brosephinas.

Interesting post.

neumdaddyThe Broncos, guys. I hope they can sustain this.

If they hope to sustain this offensive production, then they'll have to continue getting excellent blocking from their receivers and tight ends in the running game. Every yard counts in this controlled offense, and something like a holding penalty kills drives with quarterbacks who don't go downfield.

PFF currently has Demaryius Thomas as the league's best blocking WR. I've let my subscription run out, but I know that they have had Emmanuel Sanders rated as a good blocker in years past. The thing is -- the short passing game with lots of crossing patterns means that these guys are going to be taking a lot of hits. Should these main receivers go down, then that's a double hit to the offense.?

Heads up to the guys in the OT Rotten Basketball fantasy league. We will begin drafting a little bit before the end of this month. The Association starts two weeks earlier this season.

MosesIsn't there magic or supernatural shit in this Star Trek? If so, why would they do that?

Even if the explanation for Q wasn't "magic," Q was magic. What's the difference?

Well, for one, Q wasn't a member of the crew.

PaquitoI'm sort of relieved to see this thread, because I thought you might be dying of some physical affliction, KE8. Not that depression isn't a severe condition, it is, but I'm glad to hear your treatment is helping. And that you're still losing weight! At this rate, you'll definitely outlive Booze!

Thanks for the vote of confidence.
Anyhow, in relation to the thread, I don't believe I've ever taken any drug (including alcohol) that wasn't for either recreational/sleep purposes or to cure shit like malaria and bilharzia. Come on Yanks, you're over-medicated.

Right. Self-medicate with alcohol, Americans.

ZubenHuh, we're all so fucked up. I took Zoloft for like five minutes about 5 or ?years ago but I dropped it. It didn't mess with my boners but it was soooo hard to cum. Sometimes I ha to masturbate for like 40 minutes. But I'm clearly in no position to judge. For one, my problematic relationship with alcohol (although in the past 4 weeks I've had about four tall boy beers). For another, my utterly crippling hypochondria. I actually get jealous of other people now because I think about how they will get to see the video games that come out in 20 years and I will be dead from my throat cancer that will get diagnosed late because the doctors won't take me seriously. I feel that my hypochondria is starting to affect my relationship, and I can't have that so I need to figure something out here. I mean, I need her to visit me in the hospital and swear an oath that she will never let another man touch her, so I can't push her away to early, right?

I promised Meow that any gay stuff I did would first be with him, but you're next after him. We're going to get our pipes clean.

Ivan the TerribleAwhile back I was prescribed Adderall. Based on some depictions I had seen in fiction, and the fact that it's a 'drug of abuse', I was expecting it to have some impressive side effects.

I barely noticed any difference from when I wasn't taking it. What a disappointment.

You're supposed to abuse Adderall, Ivan. Take a shit-ton of them.

MosesHow long does a bucks worth of MDMA last the user?

A solid 6-8 hours of the good ride before your brain slips into serotonin overload mode and you turn into a weird zombie who might end up doing a lot more MDMA that evening, but it depends. Just... keep hydrated. As fun as it is human beings and their water:body ratio just get screwy on that stuff and turn into sweaty and horny slobber monsters, it's a difficult balance to maintain sometimes

All of that for $1?. Shit, I could retire now and live a happy life for the rest of my days.

Bring your fleece half-zip and Vans classics!

This is the fall uniform for, like, every guy I've dated.

I have at least 6 usable fleeces and they are all at least 8 years old.

I'm 10 days from being 27 years old. I mean, my parents had me before 27. Everyone is now pointing and laughing at the baby over here

I would think that massive head injuries would artificially age a person.

Oh, I can still fuck moderately well. I haven't in over a year, but I could still ride that bike if I had to. I'll phone fuck you in 5 hours if you want to, Wirthling, and I will actually come.

I've been on extremely high doses of Lexapro and medium doses of Wellbutrin for a few years. The high dosage of Lexapro especially targets the OCD part of my anxiety, and both help with generalized anxiety and depression. When I faithfully take my medication, I stop becoming a dumb drunk. Instead of drinking heavily 4 nights a week, now I save it for twice a month and usually a Saturday every other week. And most of the times when I do indulge, I don't drink to the point of blackout. When I would drink 4-5 times a week, the goal was always to get to the point of passing out. I doubt you have any substance abuse problems, but both medications helped to lower my anxiety to where I didn't feel I had to drink. The medications have their merits.

That said, anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medication are woefully over-prescribed. They do little or nothing for the mildly-moderately afflicted. But I would say that if you're really suffering and to the point of disability, then you must at least try medication and probably cognitive therapy.

The medication has been a life-changer, but it's NOT a fix all. I'm still fucked up. I live like an absolute hermit as I only really go to my job and then do the minimum necessary to sustain me like with food and getting gas. When I have to go to Super Target, I always do so at 1 am as I want to avoid people. For me, the medication is necessary to properly function, but it will never "cure" me to the point that I long to go to parties or run for city council. Just know the medicine's limitations going in.

MosesAdelaide Byrd scored the fight 118-110. I am flat-out calling that corruption. That's not ineptitude; that is corruption for Canelo.

I read some stuff suggesting this would happen before the fight. It led me to bet that side. I'm ok with getting my money back.

I read some of the same articles and Twitter posts. A similar thing happened when Canelo was given a 114-114 draw by one judge against Mayweather. In the rematch, GGG should insist that it be fought outside of Golden Boy's sphere-of-influence.

GGG won that clearly in my estimation.

I thought GGG won the fight, probably something like 7-5 or 8-4. It was somewhat close though. I mean, scoring the fight a draw wouldn't be completely ridiculous. I had Canelo clearly winning the first two rounds, and gave him the 11th and 12th. I think there was one other round in the middle part of the fight where I edged slightly towards him as well, so that's already 5 rounds conceivably to Canelo and you only need to find one more round to give him or score a round even to have the fight level.

The problem is obviously the 118-110 scorecard and the feeling that a fight of this magnitude ending in a draw is predictable as hell. I remember Holyfield getting a ridiculous draw against Lennox Lewis which is one of the most obviously corrupt decisions of all-time. Adelaide Bird's scorecard raises serious questions here, but overall this doesn't feel as bad as that. In a way it feels more like ensuring a second fight was the desired outcome than Canelo necessary profiting. And I'll tell you who didn't seem upset by the decision: HBO. I watched the UK broadcast, but from the post fight commentary and interviews I've seen, Max and Jim were a bit like "Huh. A draw. What a great set up for a rematch."

This could be my exact post about the fight. I had it 8-4 and could see 7-5 with that close round in 6 (?). Whatever the case, I have no problems with the judge who scored the fight as even. I believe he's wrong, but that (likely) isn't a corrupt judgment. But, there's simply no way in hell Canelo won 10 rounds. Adelaide's card could have been turned in on Thursday.

Judgment aside, overall this was a good fight. It wasn't great as I believe both fighters stayed in their comfort zone because they felt the other's power, and so they decided to not take any chances. That's smart, but it's better for the spectators when a fighter risks himself in going for exchanges. We would have needed a knockdown or two, or at least someone going wobbly and then surviving to come back to win in order to consider this fight to be "great".

I'm of two minds about a rematch. One -- if I am GGG, I feel like I have nothing to gain from a second fight outside of money. If the promotion is again mostly handled by Oscar de la Hoya, then I know that I am not only fighting Canelo. GGG should demand that fight happen at a more neutral site like say London, and he should have GGG Productions insert themselves into a bigger role.

I have always liked GGG as a fighter and I think now I know why. He's highly skilled with extreme power in both hands, and especially with his last few fights we have learned that his chin is as good reliable as most anyone's. He's worked hard to be highly technical, and he's developed skills that especially work to his strengths as a hard hitting, implacable boxer. His jab remains one of boxing's best weapons, and he cuts off the ring better than anybody. I cannot see any fighter near his weight being able to avoid him inside the ring.

However, we all can see that he's not a tremendous athlete. Boxers with obvious punching power, hand eye-coordination, timing, anticipation, ring smarts, chins, etc. can reach the sport's highest level without tremendous athletic ability.

Late last year during a Lomachenko fight, Max Kellerman who pointed out that Lomachenko remains the rare fighter who combines top shelf athleticism with elite level skills developed inside the gym. Lomachenko stays obsessive about developing these skills despite having many natural advantages over most every one of his opponents. Athleticism can be a curse for fighters because they can often be lazy yet still win fights. If you need a current example, then look at Adrien Broner. However, the best part of Kellerman's observation was that he made this comment (whether intentional or not) next to his commentating partner Roy Jones Jr.

Without pause, I rank Jones Jr. as the sport's best athlete of at least my lifetime. At his peak, he floored even great athletes with good skill levels. Jones Jr. eventually ran into problems once the athleticism began to slowly fade, and he then made a fight with a brilliantly skilled boxer in Antonio Tarver. The lack of skills he never bothered to develop shortchanged Jones Jr's career by at least three more years. He had no answer for when a technician exploited the holes in his game.

HoboJoeThe Packers got royally fucked by that OPI on Cobb's big catch and run at the end of the first half.

Sure, but...Atlanta is really fucking good.

It was a 17-7 game. Had the play stood (which it obviously should have), Green Bay would have had a first down at midfield with a minute left to drive. Green bay would likely have scored and run out the clock, leaving a one score game at halftime with Green Bay receiving in the second half. That's a massive swing.

And then Atlanta 85% of the time still shitkicks them.
