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… https://preview.redd.it/77mkbzd5sfd51.png?width=890&format=png&auto=webp&s=2b0d8ccafdf04b8dc03fdc1204ea9a21df93e15b 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. https://preview.redd.it/qx6ak4upsfd51.png?width=1423&format=png&auto=webp&s=52e9400ba3f2294178b459f89492370503ef814a 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. ~ dige
2020.07.27 19:22 digestives27Reasons Why I Still Play FM08 – The First Five Years (Year 1, Part 1)
WARNING: VERY LONG POST. READ AT YOUR OWN LEISURE. https://preview.redd.it/75v77obwlfd51.png?width=616&format=png&auto=webp&s=e8548492bfd1a5755cf795466b7e34d44f16c4ae NB: This is part ONE of TWO. If you want to skip to part TWO, please click here. It’s time to roll back the clock and head on back to a bygone era of English football. As the real life 19/20 season is forced to drag its heels out to the end of July and beyond, 13 years ago the season was long done and dusted by now, and the transfer window was in full flow. To quickly recap: Manchester United missed out on league and cup double as the newly crowned Premier League champions lost out to Carling Cup winners Chelsea 1-0 in the FA Cup final, AC Milan got their revenge on Liverpool, beating them 2-1 in the Champions League final after losing to them in 04/05 and the closest any British side got to the UEFA Cup was the final being hosted at Hampden Park in Scotland (NB: Tottenham were knocked out in the Quarter Finals by eventual winners Sevilla). Sheffield United, Charlton Athletic and Watford would all be relegated from the Premier League, to be replaced by the three best teams of the Championship: Sunderland, Birmingham City and Derby County. I daren’t dive too deep into the Conference North and South, but the rest of the leagues were settled as per below: https://preview.redd.it/vzd6zhv5mfd51.png?width=840&format=png&auto=webp&s=6f1678fbabe17965a1329fe8ace73674735f4598 * NB: Altrincham would be spared relegation from the Conference Premier as Boston United were given a double relegation punishment for their financial situation. As such, Boston United would be demoted to the Conference North. Altrincham would remain in the Conference Premier in order for the division to remain at 24 teams. Which brings us round nicely to July 2007 and that burning question: what happened next? Of course, having lived through the next 13 years, we all know what happened next: from backs-to-the-wall Champions League successes to unlikely Premier League champions and Spanish national team dominance, but what did the FM08 engine make of all this? Could it really happen? Is it more or less likely to occur in the game than in real life? Having played the game religiously since its release (why change a good thing?) I have come to love and hate some of the most incredible glitches in the game engine, including physics-defying goals and eternal suspensions to fixture pileups and the entire league calendar disappearing (hello unplayable game). [I’m not here to disrespect the newer Football Manager games, they’re brilliant in their own right, but every year they just get more and more complex for a casual gamer like myself and FM08 always had the perfect balance of “quick play” vs “in-depth analysis” which meant I could get as much out of it as I chose to. Sure, there’s still room for improvement, but I don’t want a perfect game, I want a playable game] I have played FM08 is with so many different permutations: with attribute masking on or off, using fake players, playing in obscure leagues, with FM Genie, without FM Genie, with a custom database, with FM Modifier… and I still have plenty of testing I want to do (currently I’m trying to figure out a formula for CA/PA that allows me to create “the perfect player” in every position). FM08 is my sandbox. But what happens if we put all that to one side and let the computer fight it out? How would it compare to real life? What do the RNG Gods have to say about it all? So thus, I present to you:
Reasons Why I Still Play FM08 – The First Five Years (Year 1, Part 1)
For this experiment, I will be using the Default, non-patched database, version 8.0.0. As this is my first run through of a simulated story, I will be running this on my old ASUS notebook so, in the interest of not killing it, I’m only going to run all the English leagues. Also, because I’m playing a separate game at the same time on my main laptop and I don’t want to disturb that. https://preview.redd.it/an6n1rqemfd51.png?width=1420&format=png&auto=webp&s=377c9d1d3d33ae92cdd48d7f1ef41a952cb4d02c My manager will be Spanish hero Juan Carlos Perez Martinez. I’m paying homage to my friend’s old FM09 legendary regen striker who would regularly compete with my world-class striker Carlos Pinto for bragging rights. https://preview.redd.it/1byhkh0gmfd51.png?width=1418&format=png&auto=webp&s=a2886518569792f5e3fdaad7268847815bf1099c And so, onto the game we game. Real players and no attribute masking. The goal was to simulate every three months at regular intervals, but I messed up the first season a little so it’s slightly out of sync with the rest. I will be mostly focussing on the Premier League and the Champions League, as well as the World Cup and the European Championships, however I will be relentlessly scouring all the competitions for some of the big stories. Even though my manager is Spanish, I will be keeping close tabs on the England national team because, you know, football’s coming home… 07/08 media league predictions + key: https://preview.redd.it/vnog4c8wmfd51.png?width=157&format=png&auto=webp&s=2a385999df0d182b17e882973fa02a29b2566a5d https://preview.redd.it/k4tnc5twmfd51.png?width=841&format=png&auto=webp&s=c98042d695c5dd8d54e76670cf4cf6e73100454b So, without further ado, we’ll skip ahead a few months and see how the season is going so far. 01 - Wednesday 31st October 2007 First off, let’s rewind back to the transfer window and see who we the big movers. July saw a few big names moving, with Andrea Barzagli and Maxi Rodriguez making moves to Barcelona and Arsenal for £12.25m and £17.5m respectively, however it was Chelsea who first broke the £20m mark signing Goran Pandev for £20.5m from Lazio. He’ll have strong competition for a starting place against Drogba, Shevchenko and Pizarro. Promising 22-year-old Jefferson Farfán makes a shrewd £6m move to Tottenham. August was surprisingly low-key. Lazio replaced Pandev two weeks later with the £12m capture of Obafemi Martin. Arsenal snap up young Swiss winger Tranquillo Barnetta for a further £7.25m. Palermo continue to ship off players selling Cristian Zaccardo and Mattia Cassani to FC Bayern and Atletico Madrid on top of last month’s departures of Amauri to AC Milan and Barzagli. They replace them with a Mexican striker and a Portuguese centre-back. £41.5m sold, £9.75m bought, net profit: £31.75m. Tidy business. As for Lazio, they’d replace £20.5m Pandev with Diego Benaglio, Lucas Biglia, Obafemi Martins, Pascal Chimbonda and a return home for their old wing-back César find a combined total of £21m. Two teams to watch next season in Europe. The Community Shield season opener is contested between Chelsea and Man Utd and is won 2-1 by the latter. First half goals from Wayne Rooney and Ryan Giggs do enough to see off the Blues. Goran Pandev scores on his competitive debut but Florent Malouda’s straight red card 5 minutes later essentially ends the game as a contest, even if Chelsea somehow ended with 61% possession. Back to the league, where we’re about 10 games in. Everton are surprise league leaders, unbeaten with a GD advantage over second-placed Man Utd. A fearsome strike partnership of Andy Johnson and Yakubu with 10 goals and 4 assists between them. A fearsome defence backs them up, with goalkeeper Tim Howard keeping 7 clean sheets in 11 games, conceding only 5 goals in the other 4 games. As expected, Tevez, Rooney and Ronaldo are causing havoc at Man Utd, 12 goals and 5 assists between them, but it’s Newcastle who lead the goalscoring charts thanks to Michael Owen’s 7 goals and £4.6m-signing Cani’s 4 goals and 5 assists. 3rd placed also-unbeaten Arsenal have 2 games in hand on Everton and also boast a mean defence, just lacking the team goal threat to go with it; Eduardo’s 7 goals does mean he joins Owen, Dean Ashton, Leroy Lita and Nicolas Anelka at the top of the charts though. https://preview.redd.it/a383pys0nfd51.png?width=1245&format=png&auto=webp&s=27767eb2d35261d78c4391e3fc3597c5f98ef4f3 I will talk about the lower leagues more as the season (and indeed seasons go on), but for most of part one I will be looking at the Premier League + Champions League. 02 - Thursday 31st January 2008 To clarify, I was still finding my way during the first season. Ideally, I wouldn’t have had a save slot on January 31st, but I learnt my lesson for future seasons. Temporarily using the 03 save file, I can tell you so more about how the Transfer Window would end up playing out. In truth, very little actually happened on Transfer Deadline Day, bar Michael Dawson moving from Tottenham to Bolton for £6.75m; they had already recruited Christopher Samba from Blackburn for £9.25m prior to this. The bigger deals took place much earlier. Chelsea bolstered their strike force even further with the £15.75m signing of Giampaolo Pazzini from Fiorentina, whilst Tottenham picked up the versatile Gonzalo Castro from Bayer Leverkusen for £12.75m. Lazio offloaded Christian Ledesma to Real Madrid for £11.5m and allowed Inter Milan to purchase a co-ownership in Valon Behrami for £7.75m. A more comprehensive screenshot below showcases some “blasts from the past” and their moves. https://preview.redd.it/b7j4vof1nfd51.png?width=1228&format=png&auto=webp&s=cecca5f3b8f838e63ad8f33f100f521b87e4fe2c However, we should always expect some managerial casualties by this point of the season and looks like had to wait until December for our first ones, with Preston and Tranmere both sacking their managers on 8th December, Middlesbrough following suit by sacking Gareth Southgate a day later after a 1-0 away loss to Newcastle. His replacement, Tony Mowbray, has done little to turn their form around with just 1 win and 2 draws in his 9 games in charge, including an FA Cup 3rd round exit to Bolton, with the club languishing in 19th in the league, 3 points from safety. Perhaps the biggest talking point though is the form of Chelsea, widely expected to be strong title challengers this season, they have underperformed badly, finding themselves in 10th place in the league. Avram Grant was sacked on December 23rd, the club being linked with Javier Aguirre, Juande Ramos and Louis van Gaal to fill the vacancy, as well as bookies’ favourite Marcelo Lippi. In the meantime, Steve Clarke will take charge of the club, being appointed manager on Christmas Day. And Steve Clarke lasts all of one day in the job! A 3-1 Boxing Day loss away to Man Utd, with the team going 3-0 down inside 13 minutes, has led to the players to immediately lose confidence with him and he was sacked immediately. https://preview.redd.it/jfkr6s43nfd51.png?width=1237&format=png&auto=webp&s=ebd5551a5f65038ce797df9edc316e24ea241805 His replacement is indeed World Class 59-year-old Marcelo Lippi, whose reign begins on New Year’s Eve. Let’s see if he lasts a little longer… Man Utd now lead the league by 7 points after 23 games with Arsenal in 2nd place on 48 points and Man City massively overperforming to claim 3rd place. Still a long way to go, of course. Sunderland’s hopes of remaining in the topflight are looking slim as they sit rock bottom with 13 points, 7 from safety. Kevin Doyle is showing that he doesn’t miss former strike partner Leroy Lita as he storms to the top of top goal scorer charts with a 17 goals for Reading. https://preview.redd.it/r2v9iw24nfd51.png?width=753&format=png&auto=webp&s=8152d3cdc3760db219a0ba30924ad178f0e7f82c No shocks in the FA Cup 3rd round as all higher league teams beat their lower league opposition; Liverpool, Man Utd, Bolton, Derby and Arsenal overcoming their Premier League opponents, but the 4th round is where it starts to get exciting. Championship Wolves knock out Premier League Bolton whilst Arsenal are eliminated by Premier League strugglers Fulham. Newcastle do superbly to eliminate league leaders Man Utd away from home, 2-0. League Two Peterborough do excellently away to Wigan to take them to a replay at their London Road stadium. Peterborough sit 1 point of the top of the League Two table with a game in hand. The League Cup has been a mixed catalogue, with at least three Premier League teams falling at their first hurdle: the 2nd round. However, the 3rd round provides less upsets and business is resumed, Chelsea being the biggest casualty after high-flying Man City dump them out. Not much more surprising in the 4th round. The dream for League 2 Bradford ends with a 3-0 away loss to Bolton Wanderers and League 1 Nottingham Forest fall at home to Everton. Is anybody surprised that the quarter finals are contested by eight Prem teams? Newcastle, Man Utd, Everton and Arsenal dispatch Bolton, Liverpool, West Ham and Aston Villa to reach the two-legged semis. Everton vs Newcastle, leg 1 Incredible drama at Goodison Park where a dubious 9th minute Yakubu goal is wiped out by a simply untouchable Michael Owen who nets himself an unanswered hat-trick by the 69th minute. However, Everton rally late on and 2 goals in 70 seconds from Mikel Arteta and Tim Cahill ensure the spoils are shared at full-time, 3-3. Arsenal vs Man Utd, leg 2 A dominant Arsenal might feel disappointed to only be leaving with a 2-1 win here. Paul Scholes slotted him in the 36th minute against the run of play but Arsenal would equalise on the stroke of half-time, a goal kick pumped upfield by Jens Lehmann is flicked on by Gilberto Silva into the path of Eduardo who smashes him on the stroke of half-time. Galvanised, they would take the initiative 10minutes into the second half, Barnetta playing a corner to the edge of the box where Maxi Rodriguez’s deflected shot would find its way to Gallas to fire home. Newcastle vs Everton, leg 2 More of a formality this time round as Newcastle made no mistake putting Everton to bed. Two goals from Emre complemented Cani’s opener to see Newcastle win 3-0 and go through 6-3 on aggregate. Man Utd vs Arsenal, leg 2 If the Everton vs Newcastle first leg was thrilling, Man Utd and Arsenal went all out to surpass it here. Trailing 2-1 from the first leg, Paul Scholes once again opened the scoring for Man Utd, breaking from midfield to slot home Ronaldo’s through ball, who himself would go on to put Man Utd ahead on aggregate after a one-two in the box with Rooney, smashing home from an angle. Gilberto Silva’s excellently guided finish in the 35th minute, after Patrice Evra’s poor clearance, meant the teams went in level on aggregate at half time. Who knows what was said at the break, but both teams came out firing in a frantic 10 minute spell: Max Rodriguez finishing off a good Arsenal counter-attack two minutes into the second half but the lead was short-lived as Ronaldo fired in another wonderful finish from an angle barely two minutes later, Scholes threading the ball through after his initial free-kick was cleared back to him. Ronaldo then turned provider after a good run down the right, lifting to the ball into Michael Carrick to head home and lead 5-4 on aggregate, Carrick in turn injuring Bakary Sagna in the process. Excellent trickery on the left with from Barnetta left Gary Neville for dead before a delightfully whipped ball into the box left it on a plate for Fàbregas to fire home his fifth goal of the season. Arsenal lead on away goals, but they don’t come into effect until after a spell of extra time. (editor note: because stupid rules are stupid) Indeed the game does go to extra time, both teams battle fervently until the very last. As the clock strikes 121:15, Arsenal are on the brink and Man Utd get a corner, goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar joining the attack. A ball whipped across goal to the back stick and Patrice Evra climbs highest above William Gallas to nod home a late, late winner. Arsenal fans are furious! Where was the final whistle? Their time-wasting tactics came back to haunt them in the end. 5-3 final score, Man Utd win the tie 6-5 on aggregate. Newcastle vs Man Utd is scheduled for February 24th. A quick look at the Champions League now as the group stages are complete and nothing too shocking. Chelsea, Liverpool, Man Utd and Arsenal all top their respective groups. The biggest shock is that holders AC Milan crash out of the group stages after finishing bottom of their group behind Celtic, Benfica and Spartak Moscow. There will be no European football for them this season. They didn’t even have the consolation of a European trophy earlier as Sevilla beat them 1-0 in the European Super Cup, a solitary goal from Alexandr Kerzhakov enough to seal victory for Los Palanganas. As if they needed further insult to injury, AC Milan would also go on to lose the Club World Championship final to Boca Juniors 4-2 on penalties after a dull 0-0 draw. A summary of the group stage: https://preview.redd.it/q5x8l738nfd51.png?width=1237&format=png&auto=webp&s=391f9d39713d764bbe9a6a38205fb7e63ff5d422 Celtic’s reward for topping their group is a first leg away trip to Valencia, while Real Madrid’s second-place goal-difference finish means they play Chelsea in arguably the pick of the ties, despite Chelsea’s poor league form. https://preview.redd.it/7nhpdcq8nfd51.png?width=368&format=png&auto=webp&s=1773335cf0e559e175ace846f45bcd9eeaa69d53 We’ll look back at the UEFA Cup later on as there are too many teams to cover initially. The draw for the 1st round knockouts is here: https://preview.redd.it/rcixg5ebnfd51.png?width=511&format=png&auto=webp&s=94044e38c22b12d73af7f64f729a5abd5556c8fd In other news, Charlton and Sheffield United lead the way, aiming for an instant return to the top division, whilst Hull prop up the Championship table. Top scorers Plymouth would do well to plug their leaky defence if they want to make a push for the play-offs while second-lowest goal scorers Stoke City show that you can achieve success by keeping it tight. QPR’s overachievements (predicted 18th, currently 4th) are largely overshadowed by Scunthorpe’s sensation form: predicted to finish bottom, currently lying in 5th place, Bradley Wright-Phillips and Martin Paterson with 19 league goals between them for The Iron. Big shoutouts to Bury in League who are defying expectations from a 20th position prediction to leading the table, as well as Morecambe, up 16 positions to 5th. Conversely, automatic promotion hopefuls Brentford should hold their heads in shame at being just 3 points above the relegation zone whilst Exeter and York must be wondering how they’re going to turn their seasons around if they want to get back into playoff contention. A summary of every league and their position relative to media prediction is below: The media always know best... Notes: Crawley Town deducted 6 points due to ongoing financial irregularities. They would otherwise be top of the league on Goal Difference! Leeds United also started the season with a 15-point deduction. They would be 7th currently if they didn’t have the reduction. Onwards to April! 03 – Tuesday 1st April 2008 April Fool’s Day is here but it’s no joke in the Premier League where Man Utd have romped to a 10-point lead over second place Arsenal (albeit having played 2 extra games). Tottenham Hotspur continue to drop into obscurity as they hit 14th position (form guide, 20th: DLLLL) whilst Wigan have climbed out of the relegation zone, Fulham replacing them. Man City’s fine form continues as they find themselves 5th with only 1 point separating them and Liverpool and Portsmouth above them. Leroy Lita, incensed at Kevin Doyle’s trash talk a few months ago, has come back with aplomb to claim top spot ahead of the Irishman in the race for the Golden Boot. Cani is staking a claim for signing-of-the-season at Newcastle, leading the assists chart with 13. Middlesbrough’s poor disciplinary record is one of the reasons they’re 19th in the league – 81 yellows and 7 reds. Chelsea’s lack of fight for the title exemplified by them being the only team without a red card to their name this season. Too nice? Mike Dean is staking a claim for most hated reference in the league – 102 yellow cards and 13 red cards issued this season so far, the most in both categories. In the league leagues, Charlton have guaranteed a playoff place as they lead the Championship by 5 points, Leyton Orient are already relegated from League One, Bury have secured a play-off place in League Two and Farsley are relegated from Blue Square Premier. Otherwise, it’s very much all to play for across the board. Onto Europe where the Quarter Finals of the Euro Cup are as follows: https://preview.redd.it/uaq9to8hnfd51.png?width=447&format=png&auto=webp&s=9ea308119c2bdf13fcbbd1b31076cbc00344b6c7 But the major talking points lie with the Champions League 1st Knockout Round. https://preview.redd.it/5ue3picinfd51.png?width=358&format=png&auto=webp&s=cc4cb0db600abef2f29df72b2900e07d2df706ea Cagey games like Ajax/Liverpool (Steven Gerrard missed a penalty) and Real Madrid/Chelsea (Andriy Shevchenko sent off) were very much overshadowed by the game of the round: Valencia vs Celtic. Benoît Pedretti put Celtic 1-0 up after a lovely slide-rule pass from Scott Brown – his first ever goal for Celtic before they were undone 2minutes later by some simple play from Valencia. Cañizares pumps the ball long to Joaquín on the wing who skips past Lee Naylor before sliding in Nikola Zigic to equalise. Some fine work from Shunsuke Nakamura and Maciej Zurawski slips in Scott Brown to retake the lead but their fine work is undone by a harsh decision as Mark Wilson’s tackle on Rubén Baraja is deemed a penalty to Valencia on the stroke of half-time. David Villa’s initial effort is saved smartly by Artur Boruc, but he reacts fastest the rebound to take the times in at half-time level. That goal spurred Villa on as his 48th minute free kick took a huge deflection off the wall to wrong-foot Boruc but Celtic would respond well with Nakamura skipping past his man to slot home an equaliser. Iván Helguera, still reeling from believing Nakamura’s goal was offside, loses concentration and misses the interception on Nakamura’s through ball as Aiden McGeady follows in from the edge of the box and buries it high into the net for a famous 4-3 away victory for the Scottish team. https://preview.redd.it/6mae0gqjnfd51.png?width=360&format=png&auto=webp&s=8ddab317065b6004747726803bece9a2eed35a88 Celtic certainly proved they were no one-trick ponies either by repeating the trick in the second leg, a first half hat-trick from David Villa not enough to stop Celtic’s four unanswered second half goals. A five-star performance from Liverpool at Anfield saw them overcome ten-man Ajax, while Sergio Ramos’ away goal was enough to eliminate Chelsea. Rodrigo Palacio turned on the style for PSV with a hat-trick in a 4-0 home win. Here’s how the Quarter Finalists line-up: https://preview.redd.it/6u218snknfd51.png?width=370&format=png&auto=webp&s=a7701906f068f4faedd563b068749f2152f44cca The FA cup charges on and some more scalps were taken with Blackburn beating Chelsea away from home. However, the last of the Football League sides were all knocked out in the 5th round so it’s an all-Premier League affair from now on. https://preview.redd.it/136pdn4lnfd51.png?width=427&format=png&auto=webp&s=177f2630fe0523a42c37c3fceb8358bcae82c9ec The 6th round sees a late winner from local boy Shola Ameobi after Robbie Keane had cancelled out Michael Owen’s first-half goal. The 6th round was notable for not having any of the traditional giants of the English game in it. The FA cup will find it’s way to either Blackburn, Newcastle, Derby or Portsmouth this year, four very different corners of the country. The Semi Finals, to be played at Wembley Stadium of course, will be: Derby vs Blackburn Newcastle vs Portsmouth As Chelsea’s poor form has been a theme lately this season, we should probably check out how Marcelo Lippi is getting on… Yep, you guessed it, he was sacked! A 2-1 away loss to Liverpool back in March and Abramovich swings the axe once more, replacing him with somebody that nobody at the bookies banked on: Javier Irureta. The former Atletico Madrid and Athletic Bilbao midfielder leaves his post at Betis to take the most dangerous seat in English football right now. Now, after leaving you all hanging after the dramatic League Cup semi-finals, I can reveal that the winner of the League Cup final is… Newcastle United! The teams lined up like so: https://preview.redd.it/h9ms357mnfd51.png?width=838&format=png&auto=webp&s=27c0a1dcd724485fc814c0bd48dd787749e9a7eb (editor note: I had a chuckle at Newcastle’s backline: Shay, Faye, Beye, Tay, Enrique*. Yes, simple things amuse me) Still, this was a closely fought battle with both teams spurning great opportunities to score, but in the end first half goals from Michael Owen and Joey Barton proved too much for Man Utd, despite a bundled second half goal from Louis Saha. Final score, 2-1. And so, into the final stretch we go before the players prepare for Euro 2008… Please click here to read on: Reasons Why I Still Play FM08 – The First Five Years (Year 1, Part 2) If you have any questions thus far, I'll be happy to provide answers where possible, provided they're not spoilers for the end of the season.
2020.07.13 20:21 LearningIsListeningA not-so-brief rundown of letters G-I in Jeffrey Epstein's 'Black Book'

Click on the link. Clemanueverers did a wonderful job. Hearn, Barry & Susan: Barry is a hugely popular English sports promoter, as is his son, Eddie, who represents some of the biggest boxers in the world. Former boxer and popular Youtuber Tyan Booth was supposedly banned immediately after posting a video connecting Epstein to Hearn. I have tried to find the video or at least a summary of what he said, but have been unsuccessful. If anyone has any info on this, please post below.

This, however, doesn’t explain why there are two numbers listed under Hirsch’s name that are attributed to Scott Geffert, the General Manager for Advanced Imaging at the MET museum. This could all be innocent or these two could have assisted in Epstein’s hidden camera setup and helped Epstein get high quality pictures of his victims. We can’t be sure.

2019-20 Fresh off the heels of Reinhart's best season, and sparked by Karlsson's emotional return on opening night, the Hurricanes tear through the league like a hot knife through butter. The team registers a 60-19-3 record and takes home their first President's Trophy, 11 points ahead of the 2nd-place Islanders. Their blue line is bolstered with the early-season addition Mike Matheson, who puts up a respectable 9G 30A in his first 70 games with the club. Reinhart finds a way to get even better, reaching 106 points (52G 54A). Perhaps most impressive is Patrik Laine, with an unbelievable 102-point season (42G 60A) – over double his total from last season and eight times what he registered just two years ago. Goaltender Jon Gillies plays the best hockey of his career and secures the Jennings trophy. In a story fit for Hollywood, Erik Karlsson returns from his life-threatening injury and posts a new career high. 13 goals and 70 assists, even after missing 15 games with a separated shoulder, winning the Norris by a landslide. With everything that's happened, Caniac nation is over the moon and are left with one lingering question: Is this the year? As anyone who has been paying attention to this team could predict, no. Ottawa eliminates them in six games. On the heels of the team's most embarassing first-round exit to date, Jim Rutherford announces his retirement after 25 years with the Whalers/Hurricanes franchise. Frank Miceli, who spent one season as a scout for Philadelphia in 2007-08, is named as the new GM. A 31-year-old Boychuk announces his retirement, having gone two years without playing a professional hockey game. He finishes his career with 122 NHL games played, all for Ottawa, and 29 points (10G 19A). In 388 AHL games, he posts 205 points (80G 125A).
Jim Rutherford retires after 25 years as general manager of the Whalers/Hurricanes franchise.
Pavel Datsyuk retires at age 41. He finishes his career with 1277 games played, all in Detroit, and 1242 points (405 goals, 837 assists)
Ilya Kovalchuk retires at age 36. He finishes his career with 1372 games played, all with ATL/WPG, and 1245 points (581G, 664A)
2020-21 How do the Hurricanes move forward after a tumultous six months? From winning their first President's Trophy, to an embarassing first round exit, to their long-time GM retiring, the path forward was murky at best. The magic from last season appears to be lost, which isn't entirely unexpected after a major shakeup. The team still manages a 43-30-9 record, but everything falls apart. Reinhart leads the team in scoring for the third year in a row, but his 76 points (43G 33A) pales in comparison to his previous heights. Laine's 100-point outing looks like a flash in the pan as he falls to 67 points (25G 42A). Karlsson once again misses time due to injury, putting up 17 goals and 46 assists in 69 games. OEL falls back into the mid-40s (11G 35A). The news goes from bad to worse when, on March 26, a bombshell is dropped on the fanbase: Oliver Ekman-Larsson will be going to free agency. Silver lining: They make the playoffs, just barely beating out Montreal for the last wildcard spot on goal differential. Their first round matchup is the first-seeded Florida Panthers. The Hurricanes take game one on an overtime goal scored by Zach Aston-Reese, but an all-too-familiar malaise settles over the fanbase when they drop the next two. "Once bitten, twice shy" is a common phrase, and for fans who have watched this team repeatedly break their spirits with first-round exits or lottery picks over the last fifteen years, it's never been more true. There's something different in the air this time around, though. Fueled by the memories of their own defeat last year, they win three of the next four and upset the President's Trophy winners in seven games. For the first time since 2006, the Carolina Hurricanes have survived the first round, and they did it as a team that was three goals away from missing the playoffs entirely. The hype is absolutely off the charts. That hype dies down pretty quickly when Tampa Bay takes the first two games of the semifinals. The Hurricanes look overmatched, as Tampa doubles the shots in the first game (44 to 22) en route to a 3-2 win. Then in game 2, the Canes gave up two goals late in the third. Returning to home ice with fans' expectations tempered but not dashed, Oskar Lindblom tips home Karlsson's point shot with just 1:15 to play to notch their first win in the series. They follow up that energetic performance with a pair of 5-4 wins – one of which in overtime, with none other than Olli Maatta securing the game winner on the powerplay. Now that they led the series, they returned home with the possibility of making a berth to the Eastern Conference Finals. Whispers of "Cardiac Canes" begin to emerge from the veteran fanbase, and turn in to shouts when they find themselves down 2-0 after the first. Laine would give the team some life with his own marker halfway through the second, but Tampa's Jack Eichel twists the dagger with an early goal in the third. Heading back to Amalie Arena for game seven, the anticipation and worry in the fanbase hits a fever pitch. Caniacs don't know what to expect, and it scares them; the team has managed to turn the tables in terms of shots, but that didn't seem to matter in the last game. Nothing could perpare them for what happened next. In an absolutely dominating performance, the Hurricanes held Tampa to just 16 shots while registering 41 of their own on former Vezina winner Andrew Hammond. Eric Comrie records a shutout. The Hurricanes were going to the ECF. Once again, Caniacs asked that fated question. Is this the year? In the conference finals they would meet the New Jersey Devils, who had an intimidating forward lineup. Auston Matthews, Johnny Gaudreau, Elias Lindholm, Kyle Connor. Those were the big names. They also had an up-and-coming star by the name of Martin Necas waiting in the wings. Carolina's Pulkkinen drew first blood, but Gaudreau and Lindholm would score fifteen seconds apart to give the Devils the lead after one. The Hurricanes came out of the intermission with a fury that few teams had ever seen before, and scored four goals in the first six minutes to take a 5-2 lead (it would later be called "The shock at the Rock"), chasing veteran goalie Jeff Glass. A young and inexperienced netminder by the name of Alex Nedeljkovic would enter in relief, having played only 9 NHL games to this point in his career. He would proceed to give his team a chance by stopping all 14 shots he faced, but the damage was done. Matthews would score late in the second, and Gaudreau would register a powerplay marker in the final minutes of the third, but Carolina emerged with a 5-4 victory. In game two, the roles were reversed. Necas opened the scoring for the Devils, but tallies from Nyquist and Reinhart would give the Hurricanes the lead after one. The Devils came flying out of the gate much like the Hurricanes had, with Gaudreau tying the game just ten seconds in, but the Hurricanes wouldn't be defeated so easily. With a fire lit under them, they seized control of the period and outshot the Devils 21-5 in that frame alone. The Hurricanes would again score four times in a row, though not nearly as quickly as they had in the previous game. Young Nedeljkovic was hung out to dry by his defense, and Glass returned to the crease with a couple of minutes to go. Laine would add insult to injury midway through the third as the Hurricanes shellaced the Devils 7-2. That eternal question, asked so timidly, morphed into the team's rallying cry. This is the year. Back on home ice, the Hurricanes were unstoppable. Their momentum only intensified after a decisive 5-1 victory to take a commanding 3-0 series lead. The Devils would not go quietly into the night, with Necas opening the scoring again followed by Connor. Reinhart would get Carolina on the board halfway through the second, then Chiasson would tie it on the powerplay a few minutes later. Pirri gave the them the lead with two minutes to play, then Laine managed to stuff one past Glass with just twenty seconds left in the period. For the third time this series, the Hurricanes had scored four unanswered goals against the Devils. Nedeljkovic was called into action again as Glass was benched for the third, Connor would strike again late to bring the Devils within one, but it wasn't enough. The underdog Hurricanes had just swept their way to the Cup final. Their opponent would be the Vancouver Canucks, led by Tyler Johnson, Evan Bouchard, and James van Reimsdyk. In net was Mason McDonald, 2021 Vezina winner and first team all-star. The Canucks were the Pacific division winners in the regular season, and had just knocked off St. Louis, the Central's champs, in 5. The game was scoreless after one. Chiasson got the Hurricanes going early in the second, but was quickly answered by JvR. The rest of the period would be scoreless. Noah Hanifin gave the Canucks the lead early in the third, but OEL would tie it up just a minute later. That's when the dam broke. Max Reinhart – no relation to Carolina's Sam – broke the tie. Athanasiou added to it a couple of minutes later to make it 4-2. Mike Matheson would suck some energy out of the building and get the Canes to within one, then Brandon Sutter scored his first of the playoffs to tie it with five minutes left. Alex Chiasson scored the overtime winner. Game 2 was a bloodbath. Ekman-Larsson got the ball rolling for the Hurricanes ninety seconds in, but Vancouver would tally three quick strikes in the final five minutes, including two on the powerplay after Rendulic was assessed a major for an illegal check to the head. Karlsson struck just before the ten-minute mark of the second. Sam Reinhart tied the game with four to go in the third. Karlsson struck again just twelve seconds into overtime to put the Hurricanes up 2-0. Back on home ice, the Hurricanes shelled MacDonald and scored six times on 30 shots. Comrie recorded another shutout. This is the year. Game four was scoreless after one. It was scoreless after two. Pulkkinen finally broke through seven minutes into the third, but Bouchard tied it up less than a minute later. Then came the critical mistake: Erik Brannstrom took a delay of game penalty. Sam Reinhart potted a powerplay marker to give Carolina the lead with ten minutes to play. This is the year. Laine added to it. Aston-Reese tallied the empty netter. The Carolina Hurricanes were Stanley Cup champions, 15 years and countless heartbreaks after their first ultimate victory. And they'd done it as the eighth seed, barely managing to reach 40 wins in the regular season and would have missed the playoffs entirely had they scored three fewer goals during the regular season. They'd knocked off the President's Trophy winner in the 62-16-4 Panthers, the 55-24-3 Lightning, the 51-28-3 Devils, and the 52-23-7 Canucks. The last two were sweeps. Sam Reinhart records 25 points in 22 playoff games (12G 13A) and two game-winning goals. Laine scores 24 points (9G 15A) in 21. Karlsson also plays 21 games, scoring 21 points (4G 17A) and an unbelievable +20, earning the Conn Smythe. Countryman Oliver Ekman-Larsson notches 18 points in 22 games (5G 13A). Olli Maatta finishes with 16 points (3G 13A) and two game-winning goals. Pulkkinen takes home the most GWGs on the team with 3, totaling 8G 5A. But all was not well. The celebrations in Raleigh become tinged with a bittersweet note as the weeks go by. News of a rift between management and Ekman-Larsson's camp continues to come out despite his sterling postseason performance, and come July 1st, the star inks a three year deal with the Golden Knights. Anger once again ripples through the Hurricanes fanbase, aimed squarely at GMFM and his perceived impatience; if the Hurricanes lose one of their biggest, most loyal names after his first year at the helm, what lies in store for the future? OEL finishes his 11-year stint with Carolina having played 885 games in red and black, recording 562 points (159G, 403A). At least he got to lift a cup before he left.
Oliver Ekman-Larsson signs with Vegas, 3y5.3mil
Teemu Pulkkinen signs with Columbus, 3y2.95mil
Alex Chiasson signs with Montreal, 2y1.7mil
2021-22 For the second time in as many years, the path ahead is once again cloudy and uncertain. The offseason saw them lose several key players who were on expiring deals. The Hurricanes do not make any moves in free agency, instead hoping to promote from within to fill the voids. Olli Maatta gets his time to shine as Karlsson's partner on the top pairing. Anyone who's watched the Hurricanes for long enough knows what happens immediately after they make a big run in the playoffs: they miss the following year. Their 39-37-6 record is good for fifth in the Metro. Reinhart only plays in 59 games this year, after spraining his MCL in November and straining his groin at the end of February. He still produces 58 points (27G 31A), but linemates Laine (34G 25A) and Pirri (14G 35A) struggle with him being in and out of the lineup. Maatta isn't a slouch (9G 27A), but after his first year on the top pair, there's doubts about his ability to fill OEL's shoes. Once again, Karlsson is the driving force behind the team's offense, scoring 13 goals and tallying 63 assists.
Phil Kessel retires at age 34. He finishes his career with 1218 games played, all for Boston, and 1108 points (563G, 545A)
Got a little carried away so I'll cut it here. Part 3 should be the last one, will try to have it up by Wednesday or Thursday.
Subtypes Preservation: Satisfactory Survival When the passion of lust runs on the Self-preservation instinct, it is called satisfactory survival. If the basic survival needs are covered, the Self-preservation Eight feels good. The place of hardcore survivalists, these people enjoy living outside of society's conventions. They take pleasure in knowing that they don't need anyone else to survive. The Aryan Brotherhood, who live by trapping and hunting in northern Idaho, is most likely peopled with Self-preservation Eights. An Eight who was making good money as a waiter in the 1960s was living in a cardboard fort in a friend's backyard. He lived that way for two years. He ran an extension cord out from the house so he could watch TV; he was warm, he had all the basics, and he truly enjoyed it. I described him in a workshop and another Self-preservation Eight said, “You know, it wasn't a fort, but I lived in a plywood shack in somebody's backyard and we were allowed to use electricity only to shave.” As he told us this story, he puffed up with pleasure and filled the room with his energy while he laughed at his own jokes. He said he loved living this way because he was beating the system. He was getting away with something, and it was both fun and good enough. Other Eights I know have lived in tree houses, cars, and garages. Another Eight recounted that the only cars he liked were big, old Cadillacs because they were such a comfortable ride, and you could sleep right in the back. Self-preservation Eights are often crustier, more grizzled, or pricklier, more like a badger than other Eights. Since they don't need anyone else to survive, they put less attention on socialization skills. Roseanne Barr is a good example of a hedonist Self-preservation Eight. Another Self-Preservation hedonist Eight woman reported: When trying to get a man I'm usually jealous of Twos, because they can do that, and I can't. [imitates a coy Two] I'd love to rope them in [laughter]. My pride also makes sure nobody sees that actually. I've even considered maybe I should tell all my friends I've become a hermit? But then I think, “What about my dinner parties?” [laughter] You know, it's like [laughs] I won't have anybody to party with. That's not an option. [laughter] I knew I was sensitive in this way. I work alone, I live alone, all that I can do to just make sure that I don't have to run into people who tell me what to do and say, “you know what your problem is . . . “I should wear a t-shirt which first says, “Don't Fix Me. Not Fixable.” And “Beware of the Dog.” Lee Marvin, George C. Scott, and Broderick Crawford are male examples of Self-preservation Eights. Social: Friendship When lust uses the Social instinct, it is called friendship. Loyalty to friends, and sometimes gangs becomes one of the major themes in life. Once you get on the Social Eight's friend list, you will be there for life, unless you engage in betrayal. Social Eights are often willing to work it out with their friends, always wanting to confront in order to stay clear. As a rule, Social subtypes enjoy groups of friends together at the same time. Rarely does the Sexual subtype organize a lunch outing with half a dozen friends. A Social Eight told us that playing a pickup game of basketball was better than sex. For the Social Eight, there is a real loyalty to friends, which lasts until death. A young woman I know reported that whenever she returned home from college, she would always visit her friends first, then her boyfriend, and then family. When she broke up with her high school sweetheart, she insisted on keeping him as a best friend. As a Nine, he didn't understand it, but he went along. Years later when she married, the old high school sweetheart was there celebrating. Michelle Obama demonstrates the characteristics of the puritan Social Eight. As a Social Eight, rather than the possessive, guarding, and consuming of the family that we see in Donald Trump, the Sexual subtype, Michelle is the family. The family flows from her as the source, power, and direction. It is her identity as she nourishes it and guides it. The sexual Eight shows up differently. A Mafia don who is a Sexual Eight is loyal to his people, but he may not be friends with any of them, not even his mistresses. Sexual: Possession/Surrender While all Sexual subtypes seem to prefer one-on-one relationships, the Eight carries it to the extreme by wanting to possess the beloved. Issues also arise around being able to surrender to the beloved. This doesn't necessarily mean that Eights require monogamy or experience intense jealousy. One sexual Eight I know referred to his open relationship: The reason it's okay for my partner to have other lovers is that I feel we are so totally bonded, it's safe for her to have other lovers. I believe there is nobody else who could ever take my place. Possession/surrender really has to do with possessing the beloved totally, and then being able to surrender as well. Who's on top becomes an issue that the Eight uses to avoid opening to the tender vulnerable feelings of intimacy and loss of control. A male Sexual Eight reported having had a love affair with a female Sexual Eight: There were issues about who was on top on every level of our relationship from money to food to sex. She was always “doing” for me. She would buy me flowers. I've never had anybody court me and buy me flowers, candy, or gifts. I realized my own patterns and that the seduction of the Sexual Eight has to do with possessing the beloved. I had never realized that giving a gift is a way of possessing. Until it was happening to me, I never realized the level of aggression and control that manifest in ostensibly taking care of somebody. It was a complete surprise. Type examples Exemplars by Subtype Self-Preservation~Satisfactory Survival: These are the crustiest, growliest of the Eights. Since they don't need anyone else to survive, they have not polished their people skills. Slobodan Milosevic, Jack Nicholson, Harvey Keitel, Fritz Perls, Roseanne Barr, George C. Scott, Golda Meir, Jimmy Hoffa, Ethel Merman, Ty Cobb, Broderick Crawford, Quentin Tarantino, Waylon Jennings, Ernest Borgnine, Ann Sothern, Bella Abzug, Moms Mabley, Josef Stalin, Madame Blavatsky, Poland Social~Friendship: These are the people who have best friends for life, and are always in a tight family and/or social circle. Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, Laura Dern, Edie Falco, Judy Davis, Robert De Niro, Keith Richards, Lyndon Johnson, Lucille Ball, Hank Williams, Charles Bronson, Robert Duvall, Richard Harris, Lucky Luciano, Katharine Hepburn, Billy Martin, Danny DeVito, Audrey Meadows, Spiro Agnew, Sea Shepard, Ireland Sexual~Possession/Surrender: These Eights are the most confident of themselves and their sexuality. The lust leaks through the eyes. Bill Clinton, Samuel L. Jackson, Serena Williams, Al Pacino, James Gandolfini (Tony Soprano), Russell Crowe, Sean Connery, Liam Neeson, Javier Bardem, Saddam Hussein, Susan Sarandon, Danny Glover, Laurence Fishburne, Richard Burton, Oskar Schindler, Mohammar Khadafi, Idi Amin, Mae West, Frank Sinatra, Jimmy Swaggart, Anne Bancroft, Yul Brynner, Bessie Smith, Huey Newton, Anthony Quinn, Zorba the Greek, Gerard Depardieu, Mike Tyson, Chogyam Trungpa, George Gurdjieff, the Maori of New Zealand, gangsta rap and Israel The Dichotomy: Puritan/Hedonist The dichotomy is called puritan/ hedonist. This dichotomy reflects different styles of expressing excess. As in all of the fixations, both poles of the polarity are present. To everyone who knows them, puritan Eights appear maniacally obsessive about work. Working longer and harder and getting up earlier is a badge of excessiveness that the puritan Eight sometimes uses to gain leverage in relationships. Handling many tasks simultaneously, puritan Eights are always pushing against the constraints of time. After work, they may drink hard and play hard, appearing hedonistic to anyone not of the Eight fixation. The style of the hedonist Eight is bragging. Not bragging about how hard they are working, but about how late they stayed out last night and how hard they partied. One man reported that while in jail in the early 1960s, a survey was taken as to the favorite role models of the inmates. The first-place winner and unanimous choice was Dean Martin, because he always had a drink in one hand, a beautiful woman on the other, lots of money, and a couch behind him. Like all the fixations, Eights embody both poles of the dichotomy all the time, but one style is predominantly presented to the world. Whichever style is used, Eights will use it to dominate, avoid emotional vulnerability, and prove that they are superior. A good example of this polarity is a pair of country cousins, Jerry Lee Lewis and Jimmy Swaggart. After growing up and raising hell together as teenagers, Jerry Lee Lewis went on to a career as a wild hedonistic rock 'n roller who did prison time for marrying his underage cousin. Jimmy Swaggart went on to a puritan career as a TV evangelist, with a holier-than-thou attack on sinners, until he was brought down for picking up prostitutes while cruising in his car. Or consider the difference between the puritan Hillary Clinton and the hedonist Bette Midler; or between Michelle Obama and Mae West.
GEOFF CHAMBERS, FEDERAL POLITICAL CORRESPONDENT SIMON BENSON, NATIONAL AFFAIRS EDITOR JOE KELLY, CANBERRA BUREAU CHIEF JUNE 20, 2020 Scott Morrison has revealed Australia is under sustained cyber attack from a “sophisticated state-based cyber actor” widely believed to be communist China, targeting all levels of government, essential services, critical infrastructure and businesses. While the Prime Minister didn’t name China, accusations by security experts of its involvement drew an angry response from Beijing. As security agencies used offensive tactics to repel active threats to companies and government agencies, Mr Morrison called a snap national security committee of cabinet meeting on Thursday night. The next morning, the Prime Minister warned the nation that mass cyber attacks had increased in recent months. He did not identify the state-based actor but said: “Those who are engaged in this are not doing this to help us. This activity is targeting Australian organisations across a range of sectors, including all levels of government, industry, political organisations, education, health, essential service providers and operators of other critical infrastructure. We know it’s a sophisticated state-based cyber actor because of the scale and nature of the targeting and the tradecraft used. Based on the advice that we’ve received ... this is the actions of a state-based actor with significant capabilities and there aren’t too many state-based actors who have those capabilities.” A senior intelligence source said the targeting of a number of organisations was consistent with a systematic attempt at political interference. Others pointed to an effort to map Australia’s critical infrastructure and identify vulnerabilities. “This is part of a continuum from conventional espionage into information warfare and ultimately potentially actual warfare,” the source said. “It is designed to build situational awareness of our capability.” Security experts immediately named China as the main suspect of the attacks at a time of deepening tensions in the bilateral relationship with Australia. After Australia called for an independent investigation into the source of the coronavirus, China retaliated by imposing tariffs on Australian barley, suspending beef imports from several abattoirs and warning Chinese students and tourists they could face racist attacks if they came to Australia. Donald Trump’s former national security adviser John Bolton praised Australia’s understanding of China’s cyber threat. In a new book, Mr Bolton said Mr Morrison was “clear-eyed” about Beijing’s intentions and strongly backed the government’s hardline position on Huawei, which was banned from participating in 5G networks in August 2018. Australian security agency chiefs and government officials have been actively monitoring the spike in domestic and global cyber hacking during the COVID-19 pandemic, and were working closely with Five Eyes and NATO countries reporting similar online threats. Companies and state governments are being advised by the Australian Signals Directorate and Australian Cyber Security Centre on defence strategies to thwart the industrial-scale cyber hacking campaign. Mr Morrison, who spoke about the cyber threats with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Thursday night, said security agencies had not identified any “large-scale personal data breaches” during investigations in recent months. Australian Strategic Policy Institute executive director Peter Jennings said it was “very clear” China was behind the cyber attack. “I think you’ve got to sort of go through a checklist of factors, which is not just the capability issues that Morrison talks about but also the interest and intent,” Mr Jennings said. “The Russians could do it. The North Koreans could do it, but neither of them have an interest on the scale of this. They have no interest in state and territory government or universities. So that leads me to conclude that the only country that has got the interest to go as broad and as deep as this and the only country with the sophistication and the size of the intelligence establishment to do it, is China. That’s very clear. “I think you can sort of attribute 95 per cent of confidence to it being China.” Mr Jennings’ comments to The Weekend Australian sparked a furious response from China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman, Zhao Lijian, who denied the country was behind the cyber attacks. “I believe this comes from ASPI,” Mr Zhao said. “We have pointed out many times, this institute is funded by US arms companies and its attacks are completely baseless. China is a staunch upholder of cyberspace security and we have been a victim of cyber attacks. We have been firmly opposing all forms of cyber attacks. Our position has been clear and consistent.” New research reveals the number of “spear-phishing” cyber attacks on Australian businesses between April and June has almost doubled in 2020, increasing by 92 per cent on the same period last year. Research conducted by Security In Depth showed cyber attacks had increased from about 1600 to 3100 per month. Attempted hacking attacks on organisations increased to 550 per month, compared to 400 last year. Telstra chief executive Andy Penn said the telco was on “heightened alert” and working closely with security agencies and global partners. “We have seen a significant increase in cyber-attack activity in recent weeks and we are on heightened alert for ourselves and for our customers and we are actively managing the risk,” Mr Penn said. “Cyber security is a large and growing area of risk for the security of the nation, and COVID-19 has increased that risk with so many of people working and studying from home, away from traditional security measures.” An NBN spokesman said that while cyber attacks were increasing, Australia’s national broadband network had not been compromised. The Weekend Australian understands several hacking cases involving Australian companies this year, including Lion, BlueScope Steel and Toll Group, were not linked with the foreign actor’s disruption campaign. Mr Jennings, a former Defence deputy secretary and senior adviser to John Howard, said the Morrison government was “saying publicly to China ‘we know’ and in a sense putting a bit of pressure on them”. “China will read this very clearly as Australia saying ‘we know’. They are very sensitive to public naming and shaming on this issue,” he said. In a call to arms to secure the nation’s networks against cyber threats, Mr Morrison said the government’s updated Cyber Security Strategy would be released within months and include “significant investments” across the sector. Industry leaders are calling for the cyber security sector to feature prominently in Mr Morrison’s JobMaker plan. They are backing a new focus on priority skills to add more than 17,000 cyber professionals over the next five years to help protect companies from attacks and malicious targeting of critical infrastructure systems. CyberCX chief strategy officer Alastair MacGibbon, a former head of the Australian Cyber Security Centre and national cyber security adviser to Malcolm Turnbull, said the state-based actor would have been identified through “techniques and procedures” used to carry out malicious activity. Mr MacGibbon said it was clear there had been a “concerted campaign carried-out by a sophisticated state-based cyber actor”. Defence Minister Linda Reynolds said the ACSC and Home Affairs Department had updated their technical advice for organisations on Friday to help them “detect and mitigate” cyber threats. The ACSC said “copy-paste compromises” were linked to the state-based actor’s heavy use of proof-of-concept exploit code, web shells and other tools “copied almost identically from open source”. “The actor has also shown an aptitude for identifying development, test and orphaned services that are not well known or maintained by victim organisations,” it said. As of Friday night, 250 new organisations had joined up with the ACSC, taking the total to 850. The cyber.gov.au website, which usually gets about 20,000 daily hits, received almost 100,000 hits.

The notion that the cyber attack faced by Australia was committed by the PRC basically comes from the logic of "they have the capability to do this" and "they have a motive to do this". I am not shilling for or defending the PRC in any way here. But how can one tell if a cyber attack is committed by a hostile nation, committed by terrorists, or committed by our own government as a false flag attack?
2020.06.02 14:00 SeaCzar""Honorable Attorney General, Kathy Jennings, I come before you on bended knee and pray that you’ll explain to me why there is such a huge “double standard” when it comes to following the money trail??""
""Honorable Attorney General, Kathy Jennings, I come before you on bended knee and pray that you’ll explain to me why there is such a huge “double standard” when it comes to following the money trail (I have told you and others and pointed out several examples from my Medicare statement about “up coding” of medical lab testing."" Savings range from the low of $1,314,960 to a high of $1,548,060 per year at one pain management location if the savings from all 1500 patients were to be considered. In addition “due process” is completely absent seems to be a trending topic considering COVID 19 epidemic restrictions. I respectfully demand to be treated uniform and consistent as all other citizens of the United States with transparency and accountability while maintain my rights and privileges and pray that someone in an investigative position whose territory is Delaware, the counterpart or equivalent of the Hon. Robert M. Duncan Jr. from Kentucky who was responsible in part for the investigation and prosecution of the NFL Medicare scandal that involved millions of dollars. I have lost all confidence in the system and hope that those of Reddit or news outlets like Dan Gaffney 107.9 FM, Jake Smith on 92.7 FM, Jim Weller W14DK or Brittany Horn with The News Journal would provide a true and necessary “public service notice” get the message out to those in Sussex County to provide some transparency and accountability to this epidemic in the amount of money that is being spent, in addition to the lack of due process in addition to informing the public of new law. I pray that I will be able to remain anonymous (until I can get my day in court) and I mean no disrespect nor any hard feelings but I would hope that those people who are fortunate enough to have a job that merely requires talking and/or pushing paper for a living would have some empathy for the essential employees who are under threat of COVID 19 and those who have physically worked throughout their career and suffer from a career of physical work. I have found myself in this situation in part because I started at the age of 15 working right beside the “migrant help” that came from Texas in 1975. This being my first job into the adult arena I quickly learned a work ethic that all my future bosses admired from a group of people that knew how to work. Most of my career was metalworking or construction until I found myself with a shoulder injury that required surgery. People who do manual jobs have a higher risk of injury. After a six hour shoulder surgery in 2011, that was supposed to take only two hours, restrained in a device referred to as the ”beach chair” I was injured, after being administered Fentanyl for over six hours. All citizens must realize that they are simply one operation away from being in the exact same shoes that I find myself. I have paid out-of-pocket $65 for drug screening, while in pain management my Medicare summary notice shows charges for the dates 3/2015 for $284.16, 6/2015 for $284.16 and 9/2015 for $323.01 was paid. When I reached out to Division of Professional Regulation for the state of Delaware for clarification in 2017, I received the complete and total runaround (and this is the exact same runaround I received in 2011 when I tried to get a copy of my surgical notes that describe the ”beach chair” and being administered Fentanyl for over six hours) as to have no interest at all in helping resolve the problem in addition to refusing to offer any help in retrieving medical records. But if you read the first two pages of this law specifically the area following “summary of evidence” where it describes Exhibit 1 letter from Katie Duensing (dated July 29, 2016) and Exhibit 2 (dated August 1, 2016) letter from Dorothy Moore M.D, is specifically talks about the concerns of the costs for laboratory testing and describes the use of ”home drug screening kits” as the minimum standard to reduce costs. There is a whole section (9.3.13) describing the “treatment agreement” nowhere is there any language describing restriction of travel. I finally received a copy of this first law ever written specifically for pain management in October 2019, two years after requesting this very mandate from the Atty. Gen. This is the exact Google search terminology “Uniform Controlled Substance Act Regulations” for pain management providers. As per “20-DE-Reg-564-01-01-17. Pdf” this is a Department of State, Division of Professional Regulation, Statutory Authority: 16 Delaware code, section 4731 (16 Del. 4731)” If you read this regulation you see it was made effective on April 1, 2017. For 11 years (2008 to 2017) there is no regulation of any kind even though I have documentation showing in 2008 by the Division of Professional Regulation, is the official repository for this information and is where I got my copy showing this. I believe this is inconsistent to the protection of the patient’s rights in accordance with the Belmont report, which was written in response to the Tuskegee syphilis experiment, when it was policy to lie to the patient’s under the disguise as official research in 1972, this is exactly what is happening today with pain management. Historians have a saying “how do you know where you’re going unless you know where you have been” and supposedly law is based around the same principle of established history. I pray the Honorable Attorney General, Kathy Jennings will follow the money trail in addition to following the requirements outlined in the following paragraph by the Robert Wood Johnson foundation ensuring those that are responsible be held accountable for the “overreach” that is so vast and widespread, that it’s equal to an epidemic in and of itself, that the CDC found so egregious that it published a report condemning the cavalier approach to current form of pain management. If there is any CDC report or another “peer reviewed” report that Delaware models it’s “Uniform Controlled Substance Act Regulations” please provide a link to it, because the difference between a “plan” and an “idea” is that one of them is written down, this provides documentation to demonstrate how effective the program is and someone can be held accountable for its performance. I respectfully demand that medicine and law be based in fact and scientific reviewed research. The following organization I have spoken to and they have assured me that this literature is accurate and true. (Due Process in Public Health; published by; Partnership for a Public Health Law, advancing public health through law, a Robert Wood Johnson foundation, assisted by public health law center at William Michell College of Law) This is the exact Google search terminology: Partnership for Public Health Law (5th amendment), search this pdf: Due_Process_and_Public_Health_factsheet.pdf It states that it is completely illegitimate to restrict someone’s travel (the only time this is allowed is when there is an epidemic that is contagious). This is the exact quotation: "“liberty interests are invoked when the action of a public health official or department interfere with an individual’s ability to move about freely or will invade individuals body in some way. The most severe actions, such as a quarantine or civil commitment and forced medication, require a full-blown hearing.”" I have honored the “treatment agreement” in word, deed and spirit, totally embracing the mission, for six years with this same nurse practitioner (although under two different pain management providers) every 30 days, the last three years at 8:15 a.m. (again, every 30 days) and I asked in writing to be allowed to travel, went back for my next appointment and was met by the Delaware State police with the threat of arrest if I did not leave immediately and never to return. I believe healthcare, with or without the addition of the “treatment agreement” mandates a “minimum standard of care” that includes “continuity of care”. It is my belief this cavalier approach by a nurse practitioner who I believe was working in a “hostile working environment” who told me that she was being forced by her physician/supervisor, the business ownepartner, to sign documents stating the lab samples were stored properly when in fact she told me the temperature was not maintain. This is the CDC report describing the proper approach to pain management. Please take notice this CDC report like all CDC reports that I have read referencing to pain management ""(every single one)"" describe going to your primary care physician for treatment, not over 25 mile trip one away. This CDC report describes how patients are being mistreated by the misapplication of current treatment protocol. https://www.cdc.gov/media/releases/2019/s0424-advises-misapplication-guideline-prescribing-opioids.html I have included a 2016 and a 2017 “treatment agreement” for pain management. I signed the March 17, 2017 agreement under duress, especially lines 8 and 9, because it restricts travel. Considering that the effective date of the “uniform controlled substance act regulations” was April 1, 2017 what other possible answer is there to the question of has the nurse practitioner lied to police by falsely reporting a crime. There is no special regulation of any kind until April 1, 2017. My medical records clearly state her referring to some type of regulation that mandates her to call the police and in fact that regulation was not made effective for another 15 days. I respectfully demand those accused of lying to police by falsely reporting a crime be held accountable for their actions. This is the “smoking gun” to prove my point that I have not received all my medical records and that this is been going on for a very long time, without regulation or oversight of any kind. This is also an example of the outstanding service I received (in 2017) from the Firm: Baird Mandalas Brockstedt LLC; (TheRightLawyersRightNow.com or BMbde.com) after talking with the firm, being completely transparent with what I knew at the time, the firm agreed to help resolve my situation. There was an internal review that included “conflict of interest” and I was asked to pay a “retainer fee”, I paid all in full, never complained about the cost, there were some additional fees for the medical records, never did I complained about the cost of the service. Upon the medical records being reviewed, described exactly what I told the firm had caused my situation, all of a suddenly “we can’t help you” was the response. I pray every day those of the firm will reconsider their position especially considering my retainer fee money was being spent for discovery of this type of information, they made a phone call to the only other pain management provider in the area, Dr. Gala (yes the one and only who was banned recently from providing medical services in Delaware because he requires sex in exchange for his medical services) at that time had just opened up the Sussex County location. The essence of the phone call that was told to me by my attorney that there was a website with a list that this physician had logged into and it stated the “reason” why I was being refused pain management, but I have yet to review this medical record that should not even exist until after April 2017 (as per the mandate, where did the state funding come from for all those years) but proves that this program has been going on for a very long time and that there’s nothing transparent nor anyone accountable. I pray each and every day that this firm will reconsider their position and be a hero by finding a solution for the problem that I have in addition to the other 1500 patients at this pain management provider not to mention about how much tax money would be saved, anywhere from $219.16 to $258.01/test, multiplied by 4 test per year, multiplied by 1500 patients equals $1,314,960 to $1,548,060 per year at one pain management location. And that’s if the physician chose the $65 test versus the use of ”home drug screening kits” as the minimum standard that is referred to in the law referenced above because even more money could be saved. The message I want to send out to the people at “TheRightLawyersRightNow.com” you are truly in a unique position, and would be a true hero to me and all other taxpaying citizens of the United States if you would only finish the job. I believe companies like Purdue Pharma, McKesson Corporation, Cardinal Health, AmerisourceBergen, Jassen Pharmaceuticals, Endo International, Teva Pharmaceuticals, Allergan, Watson Pharmaceuticals, And Coridien as well as distributors like Miami-Luken that have been found guilty and accepted their role in this epidemic would like to know what services are being provided and the costs of those services being that they are the ones being held financially responsible. This is an example of the services that I’ve received. Please validate the accuracy by following the evidence to validate what I described in the following paragraphs. This is the first item. During a conversation with the nurse practitioner in question who tried to “recruit me” into some kind of situation because she felt threatened by “the new guy”, he was going to take her clientèle because she refuse to sign off on the lab testing results because they were not being stored properly thus making the testing accuracy questionable. The way it was described to me, this would leave her without any clientèle, having to start up a new practice somewhere else and she told me if she were no longer employed at Lewis Surgical and Medical Associates, PA or Cedar Tree Surgical Medical Center how I could find her. My response in part to her was to make sure to let him (the new guy) have all the young females as to test his integrity and professionalism. This is the second area. Why, would I or anyone else need or want to know personal medical information from a pain management expert that I have to see every 30 days when I am merely a patient. Nurse practitioner why would I want to know about your complete hysterectomy at 8:20 a.m. in the morning? I have a theory about this but I welcome anybody’s thoughts as to why I would want to know or what does it have to do with pain management. This third area. This is referring to a former employee who I will refer to as “witness one” because this is how I described it to the DOJ. I respectfully demand that Honorable Attorney General, Kathy Jennings give “witness one” complete immunity of any prosecution or discipline from anyone or any professional organization for testifying as to how accurate my statements are. The nurse practitioner, told me about a former employee who apparently during the time of their employment had breast implant procedure performed, in addition the nurse practitioner went “above and beyond” to elaborate on some of the specifics about when “witness one” left employment at Lewis Surgical and Medical Associates, PA or Cedar Tree Surgical Medical Center. Apparently “witness one” stated at the “exit interview” that they were to be employed in one type of position when in actuality they left employment for a medical position and that the nurse practitioner, was going to confront the new boss of “witness one” and divulge all the unethical activities. Being that I have no real proof that any investigation has occurred, I have “zero confidence” that “witness one” has been contacted to validate or even be aware of the amount of personal information that was disclosed about them self. While “proofing my links” (as to be uniform and consistent with the requirements of Reddit) I became aware of the following: This link is the “PROPOSED” “Uniform Controlled Act Regulations” from the state of Delaware. The section (9.3.13) describing the “treatment agreement” is referred to in the first link even though it is crossed out. This link is very close to the copy of the law I received from DHSS referred to at the beginning of this open letter. https://regulations.delaware.gov/registejuly2019/proposed/23%20DE%20Reg%2016%2007-01-19.htm This link is the “FINAL ORDER” the current law, to the “Uniform Controlled Act Regulations” no reference of any kind to PMP (Prescription Monitoring Program) as in (section 9.8.3), nor any language referring to “treatment agreement” as in section (9.3.13) and this document is vastly different than all other “Uniform Controlled Substance Act Regulations” that I have read. https://regulations.delaware.gov/registeaugust2016/final/20%20DE%20Reg%20124%2008-01-16.htm This is the 2016 and a 2017 “treatment agreement” saved as .pdf: (no luck yet) This is link showing approximately 1500 patents (as per today 6/2/2020 states over 5,000 patents): https://projects.propublica.org/checkup/providers/1588972954 Link to Belmont Report: https://www.hhs.gov/ohrp/regulations-and-policy/belmont-report/index.html

Das zähe Ringen um ein EU-Rettungspaket in der Corona-Wirtschaftskrise zeigt die Relevanz der Entscheidung der europäischen Finanzminister. Es geht um rund 500 Milliarden Euro für Unternehmenskredite, ein Kurzarbeiter-Programm, und den Eurorettungsschirms ESM für besonders betroffene Staaten. Die Wirtschaft retten, Arbeitsplätze sichern, Staaten in der Krise helfen. Dass es dazu einer besonderen gemeinsamen Kraftanstrengung bedarf, steht grundsätzlich außer Frage. Nur wie die aussehen kann, darüber herrscht weniger Einigkeit. So wie schon oft in letzter Zeit in der EU. Deswegen geht es mit diesem Rettungspaket nicht nur um die aktuelle Krise, es geht auch nicht um Almosen für besonders betroffene Staaten. Es geht um die Solidarität der europäischen Partner und womöglich um nicht weniger als den Fortbestand der EU. Diese Milliarden könnten nicht nur klammen Mitgliedsstaaten helfen, sondern Europas Zusammenhalt neu begründen. Wird die EU diese Chance in der Krise nutzen?

So with the 2020 NFL Draft just under 2 weeks away the mock draft season is in full effect. Some people are loving while some are HATING what they see. Which will you fall under in this one? ROUND 1: 1. Cincinnati Bengals select QB Joe Burrow: Do I really need to say anything? They do still have Andy Dalton who really isn't a bad QB, but Zach Taylor is still a new QB who didn't show any loyalty to Dalton. Oh yea also Ryan Finley ain't it.
Washington Redskins select Edge Chase Young: While personally I'd like to see them draft another position, and I think they trying extremely hard to trade back, neither happens and that d-line gets scarier.
Detroit Lions select CB Jeffrey Okudah: Lions traded Darius Slay because some possible locker room tension and honesty he doesn't fit their man scheme. Well you know who does fit the man scheme? Okudah.
New York Giants select OT Mekhi Becton: And this is where the (probably) first hate happens. Is Wills, Thomas, and Wirfs better? Possibly, but the Giants are reportedly enamored with him and the big freakish Becton starts out at right tackle possibly learns then replaces Nate Solder on the left side.
Miami Dolphins select OT Jedrick Wills: And now the first shock. No Tua? Why no Tua? They tanked for Tua and don't even take Tua. Reports are Miami isn't in love with Tua and after 2 reports saying he failed 2 physicals maybe they are worried about him. But Wills is with out a doubt a top tackle which is a desperate need.
Los Angeles Chargers select LB Isaiah Simmons: What no Tua? New reports also scare them. Maybe they do believe in Tyrod Taylor or sign Cam Newton or Jameis Winston, but in this they get the most freakish player in Simmons and he gets played everywhere making the defense more capable of keeping up with the Chiefs offense.
Carolina Panthers select IDL Derrick Brown- I'm not in love with this. Brown is more of a run stopper that is OK against the pass. But Brown can create chaos up the middle and put pressure on QBs. And with a immobile Tom Brady, a Matt Ryan susceptible to pressure, and older Drew Brees that interior force could be extremely dangerous.
Arizona Cardinals select OT Tristan Wirfs: The Cards are dramatically better after getting DeAndre Hopkins. Kyler Murray might be legit so they get the most athletic o-line in the draft. Wirfs should start at RT and be able to move to keep up with Murray when he rolls out to his right which is quite often.
Jacksonville Jaguars select IDL Javon Kinlaw: After trading away Calais Campbell the Jags look to replace that important interior pass rush for their defense. IF the Jags are able to talk Yannick Ngakoue into playing this coming season the pass rush by Kinlaw could overwhelm the mostly lackluster QB in the AFC South consisting of Ryan Tannehill, Philip Rivers, and Deshaun Watson (the best QB here). Jags could take Tua, but are still very curious with Garner Minshew
Cleveland Browns select OT Andrew Thomas: The Browns on paper have a very good team. Baker Mayfield shows potential, but was under so much pressure last year it hurt his development bad. So this off-season the Browns bring in RT Jack Conklin and draft Thomas to block the blind side. Thomas is the best pass blocker in this draft with the left side experience.
New York Jets select WR Jerry Jeudy: Jets signed a couple tackles (unproven at best) to try and address the o-line to rid Darnold of his ghost. But the weapons for Darnold are almost non-existent. Jeudy while not the biggest or fastest is the best route runner in this draft and gets open that way. And to go along also has great hands.
Las Vegas Raiders select WR Ceedee Lamb: The Raiders have made some great additions to their team this off-season, but still desperately needs some good weapons for Carr. Enter Lamb. Carr has a well known history of small safe play ball, but has shown with Amari Cooper to throw deep effectively. So maybe having Lamb will coax Carr back into that play.
San Francisco 49ers select WR Henry Ruggs: The run continues. Its very VERY rare that a team from the Superbowl has a top 15 pick, but here we are. The 49ers were 1 overthrown ball away from winning and after losing Emmanuel Sanders who was overthrown enters Ruggs who is very difficult to overthrow. Ruggs however isn't just a guy to run fast. He is an exceptional route runner, has a 42 inch vertical, with great hands.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers select OT Josh Jones: This might be a reach, but Jones is considered one of if not the best overall pass blocker in this class and with a big need with an immobile Tom Brady for 2 years they need that blocking if they want to win.
Denver Broncos select CB CJ Henderson: The Broncos are not happy here and would probably trade back. But they traded for AJ Bouye, but lost Chris Harris. So they bring in Henderson to be opposite of Bouye to help cover long enough for Von Miller and Bradley Chubb to attack the opposing QB.
Atlanta Falcons select Edge K'lavon Chaisson: After letting the oddly faded Vic Beasley go the Falcons did sign the up and down Dante Fowler, but Takk McKinley hasn't been the most effective. So enter Chaisson to put pressure on both to perform. And in the NFC South can you have enough pressure to put on Brees and Brady?
Dallas Cowboys select S Xavier Mckinney: so the Cowboys let Byron Murphy walk and still need help at safety. So they bring in Mckinney who did everything at Alabama. A very good tackler, very good center fielder, very good in the box, very good playing corner. Not elite at anything but a very good jack of all trades.
Miami Dolphins select QB Tua Tagovailoa: Well the slide stops with the original thought team. And it turned out a win. Tua is just too good to pass on twice and he will probably have a redshirt year and not play a single snap in 2020.
Las Vegas Raiders select CB Kristian Fulton: The Raiders addressed their weakest position on offense and now address the weakest position on defense. Fulton definitely has room to grow but should develop into a good corner to help the iffy pass rush.
Jacksonville Jaguars select S Grant Delpit: Rebuilding that defense is gonna be tough. While Delpit has issues tackling that isn't his main objective. He wants to be downfield attacking the ball stopping passes one way or another. IF the Jags can create pressure and force bad passes a Delpit could be there to take it away. Whether Delpit is playing centerfield, lined up in coverage outside or in the slot he will create plays.
Philadelphia Eagles select WR Justin Jefferson: Eagles need receivers. Thats all anyone should have to say. Could grab a corner, but no. While Jefferson isn't gonna be great on the outside he is a quick and somewhat large slot receiver that will create chaos across the middle.
Minnesota Vikings select CB Jeff Gladney: another team with an obvious need to be addressed. After the rapid decline of Xavier Rhodes and MacKenzie Alexander walking there is a HUGE hole at corner. Vikings must address it early.
New England Patriots select Edge Yuter Gross-Matos: Yes with Justin Herbert and Jordan Love available the Pats skip them. I don't think either is a fit what they want in a QB. So instead they bring in a very dynamic pass rusher.
New Orleans Saints select LB Patrick Queen: With Brees tenure in sight the Saints make a move to make one more run at a Superbowl. By bringing in Queen not only do they bring in a local boy, but a player to cover all over the field. Queen can hang with backs, tightends, and some slot receivers.
Minnesota Vikings select WR Denzel Mims: With the trade of Stephon Diggs and Lequon Treadwell never amounting to much and walking the Vikings fill their other major hole. Mims has size and speed, but a limited route tree? However at the offseason activities Mims showed a much wider route tree than originally thought.
Miami Dolphins select Edge AJ Epenesa: After making 2 picks offensively Flores just can't help himself. Yes they brought in Shaq Lawson and Kyle Van Noy who are power rushers, but Epenesa is the type of rusher he's had in Flowers and Van Noy. Lawson is also only on a 2 year deal really so this is also a future prep pick.
Seattle Seahawks select IOL Cesar Ruiz: In reality i see them trading back or taking someone unexpected you know Seahawks moves. While a tackle would be a great choice to replace Duane Brown someday I don't think their worth it here cause they may not start. But you know the interior is very weak and well Ruiz is good. Wilson needs all the protection help possible and Carson needs help with holes opening.
Baltimore Ravens select LB Kenneth Murray: Ravens are very good across the board, but needs help with speed in the trenches. While Murray won't be the next Ray Lewis he could be the next great at linebacker. With his coverage skills and more importantly the ability to rush the passer maybe the Ravens won't have to find ways to manufacture pressure.
Tennessee Titans select Edge/LB Zach Baun: So Baun is a bit of a question. He can without a doubt play off ball linebacker and can rush the passes very effectively, but is considered too small to be a rusher. Baun however then has the ability to move all around the trenches to cover or rush from anywhere. While he is smaller Baun is very strong and quick to get in the backfield.
Green Bay Packers select WR Jalen Reagor: YES THEY DID IT! The Packers drafted a weapon early. While I do like Higgins here to add size and contested pass catching, Reagor would be a great fit for Rodgers. The versatility to run deep routes, short quick routes across the middle and some creative plays all mixed with his speed and good luck defenses.
San Francisco 49ers select CB AJ Terrell: Well the runner up champs are back up and add their future Sherman replacement in Terrell. Sherman doesn't have much many years left and the future must be considered before its too late. The fluid athletic corner should be able to handle all types of routes thrown at him.
Kansas City Chiefs select CB Trevon Diggs: The Champs are up and they didn't change much this offseason. One change that happened was the loss of Kendall Fuller. Possibly the best corner on the tea leaves a big hole open. In steps Diggs who did overall have a great season minus one against LSU. Excellent coverage and ball skills. Former receiver turned corner only has 2 years experience there and already that good. Expect him to get better.
ROUND 2 33. Cincinnati Bengals OT Isaiah Wilson: Give Burrow more protection and Mixon more holes.
Indianapolis Colts QB Justin Herbert: Philip Rivers is only around for one year so get Herbert in and learning from Rivers (hopefully) and Reich. The big arm QB should thrive in this situation.
Detroit Lions DT Ross Blacklock: Make that d-line more ferocious.
New York Giants Edge Julian Okwara: Dropped cause injuries but instant start here.
Los Angeles Chargers OT Austin Jackson: Theres a glaring hole at LT.
Carolina Panthers CB Jaylon Johnson: Released Bradbury and need another corner opposite of Jackson.
Miami Dolphins S Antoine Winfield: Released Rashad Jones and need that physical safety.
Houston Texans Edge Curtis Weaver: Phew what an offseason for the Texans. After trading away Clowney they never replaced him. Well now they have. Curtis Weaver is a big physical edge rusher who will get after the QB. Ain't no stopping him from that.
Cleveland Browns S Jeremy Chinn: Talented, athletic, and physical safety to help in the back.
Jacksonville Jaguars CB Noah Igbinoghene: Raw but speedy and good coverage.
Chicago Bears IOL Jonah Jackson: While QB is still an issue they lost a very good guard in Kyle Long. Jackson should step in and give some needed pass blocking help for someone to help hopefully get some solid QB play.
Indianapolis Colts WR Tee Higgins: Got the quick shifty play in TY Hilton and now the big body Higgins.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Laviska Shenault: Brady gets that reliable slot receiver.
Denver Broncos WR KJ Hamler: Not Ruggs but still not bad.
Atlanta Falcons DT Neville Gallimore: Get more trench help with a partner for Grady.
New York Jets OT Ezra Cleveland: The tackles aren't trustworthy so bring in some backup.
Pittsburgh Steelers QB Jordan Love: The Steelers learned Mason Rudolph or Duck Hodges aren't the future. And Big Bem is on his last leg. So they get lucky and snag a potential first rounder in Love.
Chicago Bears CB Damon Arnette: Still need corner help especially after Prince Amukamara left.
Dallas Cowboys Edge Terrell Lewis: Yes some injuries but great rusher and versatile.
Los Angeles Rams LB Willie Gay: The Rams need a lot of help now. Just 2 years ago one of the best rosters now lacking. While edge rush and corner is a need they need a someone to attack constantly outside Aaron Donald.
Philadelphia Eagles CB Cameron Dantzler: Still need a top corner and Dantzler is very good despite bad combine.
Buffalo Bills Edge Joshua Uche: A very good team lacking many holes after the trade for Diggs. But after looking Lawson edge rush is a need. With the division within their grasps the Bills just load up with talent.
Baltimore Ravens IOL Lloyd Cushenberry: Marshal Yanda retired so an immediate need is filled here.
Miami Dolphins RB DeAndre Swift: Change of pace from Jordan Howard.
Los Angeles Rams RB Jonathan Taylor: Todd Gurley replaced by similar back.
Minnesota Vikings IOL Matt Henessey: Vikings need o-line help.
Seattle Seahawks Edge Jonathan Greenard: If they don't get Clowney back they have their rusher.
Baltimore Ravens S Ashtyn Davis: Future replacement for Earl Thomas.
Tennessee Titans DT Marlon Davidson: Replacement after Jurrell Casey was traded.
Green Bay Packers TE Cole Kmet: Another weapon if Rodgers uses him.
Kansas City Chiefs IOL Netane Muti: Big upgrade on the OL for Mahomes.
Seattle Seahawks OT Lucas Niang: GIVE RUSSELL SOME PROTECTION!
2020.04.11 20:55 nick_0326My 2020 NFL Mock Draft (3 rounds) with explanations, trades, and remaining free agent predictions
2020 NFL Mock Draft (3 rounds) IMPACT FREE AGENTS AVAILABLE Jadeveon Clowney – resigns with Seattle on 4yrs/$74M deal ($18.5M avg) Cam Newton – signs with Los Angeles Chargers on 1y$15M deal Jameis Winston – signs with Jacksonville on 1y$12M deal Everson Griffen – signs with Houston on 2yrs/$18M deal ($9M avg) Mike Daniels – signs with Tampa Bay on 2yrs/$15M deal ($7.5M avg) Logan Ryan – signs with Buffalo on 1y$7M deal Jason Peters – signs with New York Jets on 1y$7M deal Prince Amukamara – signs with Indianapolis on 2yrs/$11M deal ($5.5M avg) Eli Apple – signs with Denver on 1y$4M TRADE CANDIDATES Yannick Ngakoue – traded to Baltimore for picks 2(55) and 3(92) Matt Judon – traded to New York Giants for picks 3(99) and 2021 3rd Trent Williams – traded to Los Angeles Chargers for picks 3(71), and 5(151) Brandin Cooks – traded along with a 2022 4th to Houston for pick 2(57) Andy Dalton – traded to New Orleans for Nick Easton, Taysom Hill and pick 5(170) ROUND 1 Cincinnati Bengals – Joe Burrow QB LSU 6’3” 221 lbs This was the pick all along. They’ve done a decent job of deceiving people as there are still rumors of them possibly trading out. In most years, drafts typically produce one truly great QB when several go in round 1 (2005, 2009, 2012, 2016, 2017, 2018). I think Burrow is the only sure thing at QB in this class and I anticipate him being the best one by a long shot. If they can rebuild their offensive line, Burrow will have the weapons (Green, Boyd, Mixon) to perhaps make a playoff push in his rookie year. Cincinnati gets their franchise QB. Washington Redskins – Chase Young EDGE Ohio State 6’5” 264 lbs In most years, with numerous highly touted QBs available this pick would be up for sale. However, Chase Young is the ‘Andrew Luck’ of edge rushers (he has elite production paired with world class athleticism) and he plays arguably the second most important position on the field. With Ryan Kerrigan coming up on free agency in 2021, new defensive coordinator Jack Del RIo can pair Young with Sweat to potentially form the best pass rushing duo in the league. Trading back, even with the plethora of needs Washington has, would be foolish when a guarantee falls in their lap at 2. Miami Dolphins (from Detroit) – Tua Tagovailoa QB Alabama 6’0” 217 lbs (trades Detroit 1(5), 1(18) and 2(56) In an ideal world, Tua falls to Miami and they’re able to build around him using their war chest of picks. Unfortunately, the presence of QB-needy teams right behind them forces the Dolphins hand and they move up to get the guy they’ve coveted for months. They still have ample picks to restore the offensive line and get a running mate for Jordan Howard in the backfield. If Tua can stay healthy, he should be great. He never had a poor stretch of QB play in his three years at Alabama. If he busts it will be because of health. New York Giants – Jedrick Wills Jr. OT Alabama 6’4” 312 lbs The Giants sit in a peculiar position at 4. They could go several directions. Isaiah Simmons is arguably the BPA at this point and New York has a need at LB, but I think they want to give Daniel Jones every opportunity to succeed. Wills played RT (Tua’s blindside) at Alabama and will be a day one starter at that position for the Giants. If Solder can bounce back to being just average, their offensive line will make significant strides. I could see Simmons here, but I think Gettleman will go all in on Jones and pick the most polished tackle in the class. Detroit Lions (from Miami) – Jeffrey Okudah CB Ohio State 6’1” 205 lbs The early winners of the draft, Detroit moves back two spots and picks up two valuable selections while still getting their guy. Okudah belongs in the Ward/Lattimore tier in my opinion. He isn’t quite what Patrick Peterson was coming out of LSU, but he will be a great corner. With the loss of Slay, Okudah moves ahead of Derrick Brown for Detroit at 5. If Amani Oruwariye can continue his promising development, their partnership could blossom into one of the best secondaries in the league. The Ohio State product checks all the boxes and has a pro-bowl floor and an all-pro ceiling. Los Angeles Chargers – Justin Herbert QB Oregon 6’6” 236 lbs In this scenario, the Chargers sign Newton and trade for Trent Williams putting them into playoff contention immediately. They can go a few routes at 6. Tom Telesco can grab Simmons and create the most versatile defensive backfield in the league or take Wirfs and create a monster offensive line in one offseason. I still think they will desire a long-term answer at QB. A Herbert/Newton combination is the most intriguing veteran/rookie pairing in a long time. The Oregon product will provide the mobility, precision, and intangibles needed to succeed in the NFL. He will have a rebuilt veteran offensive line in front of him and several weapons. The question will be can Lynn, Steichen, and co. bring the best out of him. Carolina Panthers – Isaiah Simmons LB Clemson 6’4” 238 lbs If the draft plays out in this fashion, the Panthers will have four options at 7. They can trade out, take Derrick Brown, Tristan Wirfs, or Simmons. I think all three players make sense. Interior defensive line is a huge need after losing Butler and Addison. Brown is as good as it gets there. Wirfs could be an all-pro guard and switch out to tackle if Little doesn’t work out. Rhule has always been enamored with speed and length while at Temple and Baylor. Simmons has every physical trait one could ask for in a defender and he backed that up with great production. He will slot in next to Shaq Thompson and create a dynamic linebacking pair. Arizona Cardinals – Derrick Brown DT Auburn 6’5” 326 lbs After the acquisition of Hopkins, the Cardinals have two glaring holes on the roster. Offensive tackle (particularly RT) and interior defensive line. They’ll have quite the decision to make with Wirfs on the board, but I think they’ll go BPA and take Brown. Without a second-round pick, their early 3rd will have to be offensive line. I think they’ll prefer OT options over DT options at 72. Brown can come in and play next to new signee Jordan Phillips to help stifle the run game and create interior pressure. The Cardinals desperately need defensive upgrades and the prospects on that side of the ball are too tantalizing to pass up in the top 10. Jacksonville Jaguars – CeeDee Lamb WR Oklahoma 6’2” 198 lbs With Brown off the board, the Jags go and get their new top wideout. I think Jordan Love could be an option here if the board falls this way, but I think Jacksonville is eyeing 2021 to get their QB. The best way to find out if Minshew is the answer is to surround him with talent and give him every opportunity to throw the ball. I think Lamb and Chark will complement each other perfectly and should give this offense a huge boost. If it doesn’t work out, then maybe Fields or Lawrence will take advantage of a Lamb/Chark combination in 2021. Cleveland Browns – Andrew Thomas OT Georgia 6’5” 315 lbs At 10, only one tackle is off the board leaving Thomas, Wirfs, and Becton to choose from for the Browns. After signing Conklin in free agency, Cleveland must fill their hole at LT. Wirfs played mostly on the right at Iowa, although he projects to both sides as well as guard. Becton played LT at Louisville and is a physical specimen but struggled in pass pro. Thomas has been underrated in general by the media. I don’t think NFL teams see it the same way. He played 41 games in the SEC starting as an 18-year-old freshmen. He may not have the athletic upside of Wirfs or Becton, but he played better against superior competition. He should start immediately protecting Mayfield’s blindside. New York Jets – Mehki Becton OT Louisville 6’7” 364 lbs If Becton is still available at this point, Joe Douglas will have a hard time passing up on his enticing athletic upside, especially for a team like the Jets in desperate need of offensive line help. Of the four top offensive tackle prospects, Becton (along with Thomas) were the only ones who played the majority of their snaps on the left side protecting their QB’s blindside. He is a force in the run game but mostly an unknown in pass pro (which should cause a slight fall). The Jets invested heavily in Le’Veon Bell last offseason and his first year was fairly disappointing. Becton will go a long way in creating the space and time needed for Bell to have a bounce back year. If the run game can significantly improve with Becton as the day one starter at LT, then Darnold should also make strides in that offense. Las Vegas Raiders – Jerry Jeudy WR Alabama 6’1” 193 lbs An under-the-radar team if Carr steps his play up will be the new Las Vegas Raiders. Mayock and Gruden have done well constructing a roster with few needs. With the draft capital they have accrued, they are one solid draft away from being one of the most complete teams in the league. They do, however, have legitimately large holes at receiver and corner which they will look to address with their two first round picks. After Lamb went top 10, Vegas will have to choose between Jeudy, Ruggs, and Henderson. I think given their investment in Tyrell Williams last offseason, they’ll go for the more polished route runner and consistent performer in college. Jeudy has arguably been seen as the best WR prospect for this draft class. I think he’ll fit well with Carr (who doesn’t like to throw the ball deep down the field) and quickly emerge as the top wideout for Las Vegas. Denver Broncos (from San Francisco through Indianapolis) – Henry Ruggs III WR Alabama 5’11” 188 lbs (trades San Francisco 1(15), and 3(77) With San Francisco looking to gain day 2 draft capital, they swallow their infatuation with Ruggs and swap spots with Denver. The Broncos are another team with a fairly complete roster and by pairing Sutton with Ruggs you give Lock two very different but legitimate receivers. His addition will give Denver a more dangerous deep passing attack in the thin Denver air. If Lock turns out to be the franchise QB (which is a big IF), surrounding him with the weapons that Denver has acquired the last few years is the perfect situation to feel out his competence. With only a few holes (CB, T/G) on the roster, Denver can afford to trade their war chest of day 2 picks to move up and grab the receiver (or corner) that they covet. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Tristan Wirfs OT Iowa 6’5” 320 lbs The Buccaneers are fortunate to have a player like Wirfs fall into their laps. With Brady at the helm for the next two years, Tampa must invest in players who can make an immediate impact. With Dotson remaining unsigned and 34 years old, their need at RT is apparent. Protecting Brady will be at the forefront of their draft strategy and there may not be a better fit than Wirfs. The Iowa product was the first offensive tackle to start as a true freshman under Kirk Ferentz. Although his play was erratic at times, he showed versatility playing both sides. His absolute floor is a good starting guard at the next level, but his ceiling is a ten plus year blindside protector. He should come in and compete for the start at RT opposite Donovan Smith. San Francisco 49ers (from Denver) – C.J Henderson CB Florida 6’1” 204 lbs John Lynch and co. decide to pass on the first tier of receivers given the depth of the class. Corner has become, in my opinion, more valuable each year and I think San Francisco will view that the same way (especially when considering their last game). Henderson may not be in the same class as Okudah, but he’s a hair above the next crop of CBs. As a purely traits-based coverage defender, Henderson rivals anyone in the class with his blend of speed, oily hips, and length. Tackling and run defending will be an issue, but I’m confident that with guidance from Richard Sherman, he will make strides in that area. By year two, Henderson should take over as the primary corner if Sherman were to leave in free agency. Atlanta Falcons – Javon Kinlaw DT South Carolina 6’5” 324 lbs In this year’s draft, I anticipate a break in the top tier of prospects around the middle of the first round. In this scenario, the break occurs at pick 16. Kinlaw is the last prospect that is justifiable in the top 10. The former Gamecock has the prototypical size and length to play all along the defensive line but is still a raw prospect. For Atlanta, interior defensive line remains a question mark after Grady Jarrett (with Senat having yet to step up). Pairing Jarrett and Kinlaw on the inside could create an incredible interior rush that could help stifle the pass happy NFC South and get the Falcons defense back on track. Dallas Cowboys – K’Lavon Chaisson EDGE LSU 6’3” 254 lbs This is mostly a projections-based pick. Chaisson is one of the youngest prospects available and his athleticism is through the roof. The Cowboys have a significant need opposite Demarcus Lawrence and could use a versatile edge defender like Chaisson. He has the ability to rush, cover, and defend the run at a high level. At LSU, he never had stellar production, but the arrow is pointing up. He finished the year with 4.5 sacks in his last 4 games against tough opposition and is renowned by his coaches for his character. A smart player with elite athleticism that played well against NFL talent week in and week out at LSU usually don’t last very long in the draft. Indianapolis Colts (from Detroit through Miami through Pittsburgh) – Jordan Love QB Utah State 6’3” 234 lbs (trades Detroit 2(34), 2(44), and 4(122) We always underestimate how often teams become enamored with QBs. I think it’s possible that the top four QB prospects are off the board within the first half of the first round. If there’s a straggler (most likely to be Love), a team will almost certainly move up to take him. For me, the Colts made the most sense for a few reasons. They signed Rivers to be their starter, but only for one year. I think they’ll be too good next year to hope for Lawrence or Fields in 2021. This is the perfect draft to bring in a raw prospect like Love, who has all the tools to be a successful pro and sit him behind Rivers for a year. The cost to move up wasn’t significant for Indianapolis given Detroit’s desire to move down again. Las Vegas Raiders (from Chicago) – Kristian Fulton CB LSU 6’0” 197 lbs The Raiders are in a great spot to address their two most pressing needs. Luckily for them their second pick falls one spot ahead of the corner-needy Jags. The last consensus first round corner is Fulton. If it wasn’t for a down year in 2019, the LSU defensive back would be gone by now. If Las Vegas exonerates his 2019 tape due to constant ankle-injuries (and playing DB when Burrow is your QB), this would be a no-brainer pick. Even more so now after the failed signing of Eli Apple, the Raiders must look for a long-term number one. If second year players (Mullen, Abram, Johnson) can take a step forward, a secondary that was once a weakness can transform the Raiders defense back to their old days. Jacksonville Jaguars (from Los Angeles) – A.J Epenesa EDGE Iowa 6’5” 275 lbs After taking Lamb at 9, Jacksonville transitions to addressing a ravaged defense. With Ngakoue on the move, they must dip back into the edge rushing prospects only a year after drafting stud Josh Allen. Epenesa was once thought of as a surefire top 10 pick, but after a rough combine, better athletes will be drafted before him. He wins with his technique and strength. He can anchor against the run and should provide consistent pressure as he did in the Big Ten. His sophomore tape alone should get him drafted in round 1. He will be a perfect complement to Josh Allen and will help transition the Jags defense post-Coughlin. Philadelphia Eagles – Patrick Queen LB LSU 6’0” 229 lbs After missing out on the tier one WRs, the Eagles can look to address one of their two most pressing needs; linebacker and safety. Both McKinney and Queen have good value at 21, but I have them taking the LSU product. After trading for Duke Riley and signing Jatavis Brown, Philly’s linebacking corps isn’t as dire as it once was. The addition of Queen will complete a revamped position group. At LSU, Queen excelled in coverage and showed great instinctual awareness. He is the perfect modern day LB and will have a vaunted defensive line to play behind. It wouldn’t shock me if he emerges as one of the best LBs in the NFL early on. Minnesota Vikings (from Buffalo) – Justin Jefferson WR LSU 6’1” 202 lbs Once the Vikings parted with Diggs, the WR position immediately became a priority in round one. After Adam Thielen, who struggled to stay healthy in 2019, the Vikings receiving core is barren. An injection of youth and potential is vital at the position. I wouldn’t be shocked if they double dipped at receiver in the first three rounds. The last time Minnesota took a receiver in round one was Laquon Treadwell in 2016, but I anticipate Jefferson will be far better. Jefferson is the consensus #4 receiver in this class and is one of the more polished and NFL-ready players available. He was highly productive in the SEC and checked every athletic box at the combine. He should come in and become Cousins go to option in the slot. New England Patriots – Yetur Gross-Matos EDGE Penn State 6’5” 266 lbs The Patriots have several options at 23. After losing Tom Brady, New England will go into the season with Stidham and Hoyer competing at QB. This opens up the possibility of them drafting a QB early, but I think the top four will be gone at this point and without a second round pick the Pats don’t have the flexibility to move up and get one. I think Belichick is looking at the 2021 draft for a new QB and I anticipate them tanking for Trevor Lawrence. I think this year, they’ll address the holes left by departing free agents on defense and grab the long and productive Penn State edge rusher to be molded into a Belichickian defensive chess piece. New York Giants (from New Orleans) – Kenneth Murray LB Oklahoma (trades New Orleans 2(36), and 2021 2nd) I think Gettlemen will look to aggressively address real areas of weakness on the Giants roster. They will be all in on Daniel Jones for the upcoming season and will want to make a playoff push. If Murray or Queen are still available at the back end of round one, I can see them moving up to secure one of them. When pairing Murray with new signee Blake Martinez and promising second year LB Ryan Connelly, the Giants turn a weakness into a strength. With heavy investment on their defensive line the past few drafts (and trades), Murray winds up in the perfect situation. He will be given tons of space behind that line which will allow New York to take advantage of his range and coverage ability. It also softens the blow of passing on Isaiah Simmons. Cleveland Browns (from Minnesota) – Xavier McKinney S Alabama 6’0” 201 lbs (trades Minnesota 2(41), 3(74), 6(188) McKinney is the only clear-cut round one safety (unless you consider Simmons a S) and several teams have holes in the middle of their secondary. If the Alabama defensive back slides past 21, front offices will try and move up to secure him. At Alabama, he played over 200 snaps at both safety spots as well as slot corner. His versatility in the secondary is one of his most unique traits. He will have the ability to fill the weakest link all across the defensive backfield which is incredibly valuable. For the Browns, they are in desperate need of a free safety as their current penciled in starter is Andrew Sendejo. McKinney will bring his flexibility and pair well with Ward, Williams, and Joseph to create a promising secondary. Miami Dolphins (from Houston) – Josh Jones OT Houston 6’5” 319 lbs After trading up to 3, Miami gets lucky as the most pro-ready LT is still on the board all the way down at 26. The Dolphins desperately need to rebuild their offensive line. At the moment only new signee Ereck Flowers and 2019 third rounder Michael Deiter seem to be set in stone. Jones may not be like the athletic freaks that were drafted before him, but he is the best pass protecting LT in this class and given his age should come in and start immediately. He also has the tools to transition to RT (Tua’s blindside) if need be. If McKinney was still available, Miami would have a tougher decision to make, but at 26 the Houston Cougar has great value. Seattle Seahawks – Cesar Ruiz C/G Michigan 6’3” 307 lbs Given the scarcity and lack of depth at interior offensive line in this class, I anticipate the top tier getting picked earlier than they should. Ruiz is the top C/G available in this draft and he will provide teams with an immediate starter with long-term flexibility at either guard or center. For Seattle, this pick makes too much sense for an inconsistent offensive line. Ruiz was a model of consistency at Michigan, starting 36 games over 3 years and never having a prolonged period of negative play. After trading Max Unger away a few years ago, John Schneider has yet to find a competent replacement. Ruiz will finally fill that need and move Britt out to guard or right tackle which should improve two positions at the same time. Baltimore Ravens – Tee Higgins WR Clemson 6’4” 216 lbs The fifth and arguably last round one caliber receiver still on the board goes to Baltimore. Higgins length and high-point skills will be exactly what Lamar Jackson was missing when he struggled throwing the ball last year. At Clemson, Higgins scored 25 touchdowns in his last two years. He will be the perfect safety blanket and red zone target (that isn’t Mark Andrews) for Jackson. His ability to box out and high point the ball will make life difficult for any defensive back in the league. By pairing Higgins with 2019 first rounder Hollywood Brown, the Ravens have two vastly different outlets to attack defenses through the air. Tennessee Titans – Trevon Diggs CB Alabama 6’1” 205 lbs Tennessee is another team with very few major holes. Jon Robinson has done a masterful job at filling this roster with proven talent and potential. Their biggest needs lie at RT and CB. With the loss of Logan Ryan, the Titans have only two legit corners on the roster (Jackson/Butler). The value of Diggs will be higher for teams looking for big corners who excel in press coverage. The Alabama CB has the physicality and ball skills to be successful. He may not have elite recovery speed, but it is one of the many reasons he pairs so well with a smaller and faster CB like Adoree Jackson. Green Bay Packers – Denzel Mims WR Baylor 6’3” 207 lbs The Baylor product is this year’s biggest pre-draft riser having once being thought of as a late day two or early day three developmental receiver. Mims has now turned into a fringe first round player. He aced the pre-draft process (had a great Senior Bowl week and posted a 4.38 40, 10’11” broad, 6.66 3-cone) while showcasing his impressive length (33⅞" arms, 6’3”). His two main issues to keep an eye on was his simplified and undeveloped route tree at Baylor combined with inconsistent hands this past year. The Packers finally get a reliable number two receiver opposite Davante Adams. Mims will hopefully provide a spark for an underperforming Green Bay passing offense. Miami Dolphins (from San Francisco) – Grant Delpit S LSU (trades San Francisco 2(39), 4(141), 5(155), and 2021 6th) This is a big win for Miami as they emerge from the first round having filled their three biggest needs, QB, LT, and FS. At 31, the Niners will be looking to trade down again and teams will be looking for that elusive fifth-year option at the end of the first. I have Miami giving up a few day 3 picks to move up 8 spots and take one of the more divisive prospects in this year’s draft. Delpit was considered top 10 material at the beginning of the college season, but a poor outing has hurt his stock significantly. Tackling issues aside, Delpit possess the range and ball skills to play as the deepest defender as a pro. Kansas City Chiefs – Jaylon Johnson CB Utah 6’0” 193 lbs The Utah corner is another prospect with a wide range of opinion. I think he could go top 20 or last to the end of the second round, it will depend on how the league views him. I think his coverage versatility will push him up and he’ll end up in the first round. After Kansas City lost Kendall Fuller in free agency, their need at corner intensified. I think Johnson will be capable of replacing Fuller’s ability to play both in the slot and out wide. A tandem of Ward, Johnson, and Fenton is a solid trio when considering how often they will have to defend the pass with Mahomes at QB. If Thornhill continues to impress, the Chiefs secondary will have a lot of potential. ROUND 2 Cincinnati Bengals – Isaiah Wilson OT Georgia 6’6” 350 lbs Detroit Lions (from Indianapolis through Washington) – Ross Blacklock DT TCU 6’3” 290 lbs Detroit Lions – Julian Okwara EDGE Notre Dame 6’4” 252 lbs New Orleans Saints (from New York) – A.J Terrell CB Clemson 6’1” 195 lbs Sean Payton and co. decided to trade down and pick up a valuable 2021 pick that they can use to get a QB if need be. I think LB was a possibility had they stuck at 24, but Terrell is a nice consolation pick. After losing Eli Apple, the Saints are left with question marks behind Marshon Lattimore. Jenkins played fine down the stretch but he’s not a long-term partner for Lattimore. At Clemson, Terrell was the premiere corner and mirrored some of the best receivers in college football. He’s tall, long, and fast and should be able to match up against bigger receivers immediately. He also a great blitzer in the slot. Zach Baun is also a consideration here. Los Angeles Chargers – Brandon Aiyuk WR Arizona State 6’0” 205 lbs Carolina Panthers – Marlon Davidson DT Auburn 6’3” 303 lbs San Francisco 49ers (from Miami) – Michael Pittman Jr. WR USC 6’4” 223 lbs Houston Texans (from Arizona) – Jeremy Chinn S Southern Illinois 6’3” 221 lbs Unable to convince Arizona to part with their first-round pick for DeAndre Hopkins, the Texans are left without the opportunity to get a blue-chip prospect. They have to hit on these two second round picks to remain in contention. At 40, they address an area of weakness next to free safety Justin Reid. Chinn is a defensive chess-piece with his world class athleticism and versatility. He can play box safety, nickel, or WLB. At Southern Illinois, he dominated with four interceptions in his final year. With this pick Houston will have the most intriguing safety pairing in the league with Reid and Chinn. Minnesota Vikings (from Cleveland) – Jeff Gladney CB TCU 5’10” 191 lbs Jacksonville Jaguars – Noah Igbinoghene CB Auburn 5’10” 198 lbs Chicago Bears (from Las Vegas) – Austin Jackson OT USC 6’5” 322 lbs This would be a value pick and a perfect spot to land for Jackson. Currently, the Bears have two veteran tackles in Leno Jr. and Massie. This past year, their play wasn’t too inspiring, and they could be gone by next offseason. Jackson is not pro-ready, but he’s only 20 years old and the potential is there. He could come in and be the sixth offensive linemen or the swing tackle in his rookie year. By year two, you’d expect him to start and by year three he could be one of the best left tackles in the league. Although Chicago has other more pressing needs, I think they’ll stick to their board and draft BPA. Detroit Lions (from Indianapolis) – Jalen Reagor WR TCU 5’11” 206 lbs Tampa Bay Buccaneers – D’Andre Swift RB Georgia 5’8” 212 lbs Denver Broncos – Cameron Dantzler CB Mississippi State 6’2” 188 lbs Atlanta Falcons – Zach Baun LB Wisconsin 6’2” 238 lbs New York Jets – Laviska Shenault Jr. WR Colorado 6’1” 227 lbs Pittsburgh Steelers – Terrell Lewis EDGE Alabama 6’5” 262 lbs The board falls oddly for Pittsburgh. This is not a team with any gaping holes, but there are a few positions that could use depth. The three key areas of need are iOL, EDGE, and LB. I think they’d consider Lloyd Cushenberry III for the eventual replacement of Pouncey here or maybe someone like Willie Gay Jr. or Troy Dye to be depth behind Bush/Williams. I have them going with Lewis out of Alabama. This is a boom or bust type of pick. I don’t think they sign Bud Dupree to a long-term deal and thus they will be in need of an OLB opposite Watt next year. Lewis has all the physical tools (6’5”, 34” arms) to be dominant, he just needs more consistency. Chicago Bears – Kyle Dugger S Lenoir-Rhyne 6’1” 217 lbs Dallas Cowboys – Ashtyn Davis S California 6’1” 202 lbs Los Angeles Rams – Lloyd Cushenberry III C LSU 6’3” 312 lbs The Rams have significant holes on the interior of their offensive line. They have yet to adequately replace the losses of Saffold and Sullivan in the long term. Given their investment in Goff, this will be a priority. They make a step in the right direction with the LSU product who can come in and start at C day one and begin to form chemistry between him, Goff, and the rest of the offensive line. The center plays an invaluable position and if the right player is playing the position, the offense as a whole will improve. I think McVay is all in on Goff for the next three years at least and this will be reflected with their picks. Philadelphia Eagles – K.J Hamler WR Penn State 5’9” 178 lbs Buffalo Bills – Curtis Weaver EDGE Boise State 6’2” 265 lbs Brandon Beane and Sean McDermott have done an incredible job of completing a roster with very few significant needs. After the acquisition of Diggs, you could argue the entire starting offense is already in place. With that said, their top pick should be used on defensive side of the ball (preferably EDGE or CB). Hughes and Addison combined for 15 sacks last year but will be 32 and 33 at the start of the season. Buffalo needs to find an understudy for them. Weaver was incredibly productive in college (34 sacks in three years), but lacks elite get off. He may not ever become an elite edge rusher at the next level, but his floor is relatively high given his outstanding production. Jacksonville Jaguars (from Baltimore through Atlanta through New England) – Antoine Winfield Jr. S Minnesota 5’9” 203 lbs Detroit Lions (from Miami through New Orleans) – Netane Muti G Fresno State 6’3” 315 lbs Los Angeles Rams (from Houston)– Willie Gay Jr. LB Mississippi State 6’1” 243 lbs Minnesota Vikings – Justin Madubuike DT Texas A&M 6’3” 293 lbs Seattle Seahawks – Ezra Cleveland OT Boise

2020.04.02 16:35 Sa_lA Day in the Life of the Ass-man
It’s early March and I wake knowing the second leg of our Champions League round-of-16 tie is upon us. At the halfway stage we lead by a single goal, an away goal, and tell myself as I’ll suggest Saul tell the players, no to be complacent. Complacency is such an awful thing – it’s so hard to spot. But today I’m not complacent, I’m confident. It’ll be a good day. It’s almost six in the morning and I’m still in bed. Saul, our manager, will be first to the training ground at seven. I say first, but in reality, Hayley, our head cleaning lady will claim that accolade. Gary from the kitchen will also be there before the boss, but it sometimes seems like Saul never leaves. Me, I like to arrive second. As the assistant manager, I feel it’s an important standard to set. I look at the clock beside my bed, bleating like a sheep, and decide I’ll have another few minutes because I can. When I rise, I go to my wardrobe and look wistfully at my dust-laden suit, unsure when it was last employed. I brush away the cobwebs and take my tracksuit. Over breakfast, I read an article on how Mikel Arteta escaped Guardiola’s clutches. Did Pep forget to offer him a new contract, I wonder. The whole notion of an assistant-manager transcending the role of right-hand man is sickening to me. My girlfriend catches my dour expression. “Chin up,” she says. “This morning I heard that games company is making one called Assistant Manager. Sega, I think. That’s what you play, isn’t it?” I’m coy, telling her no, but my reaction to her mispronunciation of ‘See-ga’ sells me short. They don’t even make the game. Placing my hand on hers, I tell her it’s just a game, nothing serious. It’d be nothing on me if the fans knew I played it. There’re far worse names than laptop manager. Laptop assistant manager, in my case. But I’ve spent the past eight months climbing off the marble pedestal she put me on like one of the legends outside the ground. Players, managers; the kitman at one stadium, but never an assistant manager. How she’d blow up with delight if she knew I was playing for professional purposes, and I can be sure she’d take me with her, soaring on an aspirational updraft. No, I’m happy at the gaffer’s side. I couldn’t leave him anyway, Saul’s my best pal. I’ve been with him since the trenches. I arrive at the training ground just after half-seven. Counting the cars, I’m at least the sixth to arrive. Bloody roadworks. Saul shares his office with me. I sit down at my desk which faces his. On the way in I see he has a database open and is filtering potential recruits. He seems to have a particular interest in young Argentines and Serbians. To his credit, first-teamers Alejandro, Luciano, Matias, Cristian, Fernando, Eli, Marcelo, Darko, Aleksandar, Petar, Nikola and Igor would help them fit right in. The strength of our bond with South American clubs is only second to our relationship with the English-language school down the road. “Roadworks?” He asks. “It’s like someone parked a bus across the road.” My morning duties include finishing the monthly training report and, well, assisting. I’m partway through analysing why one of our wingers looks so unhappy with quickness training after complaining for the past two months about his absence from the programme when Saul speaks up. “I’ve been thinking about Bien’s development.” From my desk I can barely see him behind the computer monitor and a stack of 17 matchday programmes. My eyes narrow as I remember a previous suggestion our right-sided fullback stay back at all times, my dissuading response, and his subsequent cold shoulder. It was fair. The manager knows best, though I’d rather I didn’t appear inadequate again. He continues, “I’d like you to start coaching him to consider taking fewer long shots.” I breathe a sigh of relief, telling Saul that’s suitable accounting for how inept Bien is at shooting from range. There’s a knock at the door. Jens, our head physio, enters and passes Saul a fitness report ahead of the game. Only our star forward is missing, but he and the manager aren’t on speaking terms, leaving me to act as a conduit. Saul only wished the player a speedy return and assured him of his place in the squad upon his return to fitness. Why that warranted a strop, I don’t know. Some players can be so fickle. Not long after, I finish the month’s training report and hand it to Saul. Instantaneously, he calls two of the top three performers into his office to praise them. I wonder if he didn’t invite Husby in because my highlighter faded when it came to his name. Either way, it’s gratifying seeing your work acted upon with such haste. One chink in the chain: Andy Pawlowski doesn’t think he trained well and seems disappointed. In a stroke of brilliance, Saul reroutes the conversation by praising his influence on the dressing room and Andy perks up as if by magic. What a veritable joy it is to work with such a motivator. Come 10, it’s time for training in which both Saul and I partake. With a match this evening, we opt to focus on the tactical elements of the game so as not to wear the players out. I inform Saul during this session that our left attacking midfielder is struggling to adapt to the left midfield position. Saul seems totally perplexed by this, which I find strange since they are separate positions. Not long after we return to the office and Saul receives his latest programme for the pile from a lad in the media department, he asks me to leave for he has an impromptu meeting with the owner. I agree and pass our club’s billionaire benefactor with a questionable human rights record on the way out. It’s amazing how everyone is always available on demand around here. Mr Tolstikov looks resigned to an uncomfortable fate. I wonder if this has anything to do with those young Argentines Saul was looking at. Following his meeting and my lunch in the legends lounge, I pass Saul on his way to the presser. Our eyes meet and I wondering if he’s considering sending me. He’s only once asked me to sit before the media and I think it was a simple mistake, akin to a mis-click. We lost the following match. In the runup to our game, we prep the team with pre-match instructions. “The atmosphere is about average and most of the team are generally interested in what you have to say,” I inform Saul having counted the number of players on their phones. I admire the manager’s dedication. He is so ‘in the zone’ he appears to ignore me. “We’re going to go with our 4-4-2 formation today.” “There was very little reaction from the squad,” I whisper in his ear, trying not to disturb the delicate dressing room dynamics he’s carefully cultivated. “We need to adopt an attacking mentality for this one.” “The majority of the squad agree with this tactical approach. This approach suits the team being favourites.” Saul grins and says, “good delivery,” tapping me on the shoulder. One of the players drop something and a tinny, metallic noise rings in my ears. Once, in almost identical circumstances to the press conference I conducted, I held the team meeting. We lost the following game on that occasion as well. In the dressing room with minutes to go before kick-off, I give Saul my final advice before we step out. “I suggest we should ask the team to do this for the fans.” Saul glares at me as if to suggest we should always play for the fans before telling the players he expects a win. I make a mental note of this for the weekend as the players react positively. As they do when Saul tells them he has faith in them and that they should go out there and make a difference. With all 11 given these instructions, it’ll be a wonder if we don’t win. 11 difference makers – sheer brilliance. Saul then takes my advice on opposition instructions, relaying it to our lads. We’ll man-mark every opponent except the centre-backs and keeper and show them onto their weaker foot – I hope someone has actually told our players which foot that is. But maybe there’s no need. Saul tells the players not to hold back in their tackles, perhaps implying we’ll determine the weak foot. That advice goes for all players except for their Balkan midfielder, returning to the side after a 12-match suspension for breaking an opponent’s ribs on the advertising boards. We wouldn’t make our players do anything we wouldn’t. The game kicks off and despite being the home side, we’re soon under the cosh. Our 17-year-old, bald, moustachioed forward with the lazy eye seems to be the only one trying to make a difference. Unless, of course, you count his strike partner who has completed a staggering amount of tackles, though has picked up a yellow card. “I think we should tell him to ease off the tackles,” I tell Saul. There is fire in his eyes as he tells the player to calm down. Three minutes later we’re reduced to 10 men when he receives a straight red for a Johnson-style rugby tackle. He is number 10, I suppose. Saul adapts by moving our wonderkid striker into the centre. We’re now playing 4-4-1. I’d like to see us play more conservatively, but as Saul demands more from the players – hopefully not more cards – they respond well. However, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. The opposition defence discover our miscomprehension of the offside rule, particularly after throw-ins near the corner, and start controlling possession. Saul doesn’t look in the slightest bit concerned, but I have an itch needing scratched. It’s approaching half-time and Saul’s persistent demands seem to be serving us well. On the 45th minute we score and even before our players can think about returning to shape, Saul is demanding more of them. “They appear focused,” I say, hit by a peculiar sense of déjà vu. Saul nods at me, warmed, if anything, by this familiarity. “We’re doing good,” he says, turning back to the pitch. One of my assistants leaps from the bench with a tablet in hand. It shows a dataset already implanted in my mind. Does he think I’m a fool? I wave him away and step up to Saul. The elation of the fans behind the dugout spurs me on. “We’re being overrun in midfield,” I say, “we should think about making a change.” Saul’s brow sinks, his eyes roll. “32% possession,” I say. This is an age-old coping mechanism passed down from assistant to assistant, although right now it’s not filling me with my usual assuredness. “Who do you think you are?” Saul asks. “Sam from the redtops? Next you’ll be asking how a goal on the cusp of halftime alters the game. We’re playing 4-4-1 wide and direct; they’ve a tank in midfield, what do you expect?” Well, I console myself as I return to the bench on this not so good day, there’s always Saturday. by Saul Deeson

2020.02.03 11:04 robbers12345My First ever 3 round Mock Draft No Trades with Explanations
Hey friends, I am a sad Niner fan who made this mock after we lost :(. This is my firs tever mock I'm sharing here so please give me some feedback. Be mean too I want to be better. Enjoy! My takeaways from this draft:
Not sure how I like running backs falling so far. Not sure if its realistic
My explanations aren't exactly the best as I was tired and still dont have a complete big board.
Miami had a sick draft.
I listed all edge rushers as "DE" sorry about that.
CIN: Joe Burrow (QB)- Yep. No explanation.
WAS: Chase Young (DE)- Best Player in the draft IMO. Even if the skins get a good offer to trade down, I think they have to take Young so he can hurt the NFC East for years to come.
DET: Jeffrey Okudah (CB)- I think they could do a few things here but with Patricia’s and Bob Quinn’s job on the line I think they go with the next best player. A true lockdown corner who can be the next Revis and he can try to save Patricia’s job
NYG: Isaiah Simmons (LB)- Again I can see them going O-line or even Jeudy but overall I have them going with a true game changer who can help overhaul the awful defense of the giants.
MIA: Tua Tagovailoa (QB)- Tank for Tua but the Dolphins pick at 5. I personally don't think they should move up at all in this draft as they have so many holes. With Tua falling to them he can sit and learn from the legend Fitzmagic and help take the crown in the AFC East.
LAC: Justin Herbert (QB)- Whether Rivers stays or not I think this has to be the pick. A lot of people are down on Herbert but I think he can be very successful. With the right coaching he can battle with Mahomes for years to come.
CAR: Derrick Brown (DT)- This team is not going to be good next year. Who knows what is going on with Cam and now with Keuchly gone the defense has issues. I think they go with the best defensive player left. With burns on the outside and Brown on the inside, the D-line is looking pretty good. Could also see them going O-line.
ARZ: Jedrick Wills (OT)- I know a lot of fans want Jeudy here but I can't see Keim taking him here. They have Kirk, Fitz, and 3? Second year receivers. They have bigger holes and that O-line was not good. The amount of times I saw Kyler just sit down and take a sack as the pressure got to him makes me think Card have to go O-line. Personally I think Wills is the best tackle in the draft but could see them going any of the big 4.
JAX: Jerry Jeudy (WR)- This team also has many holes but they can have Minshew throwing to only DJ Chark. They need a serious threat and Jeudy has the IT factor. Route running reminds me of AB and this will surely help the offense out.
CLE: Tristan Wirfs (OT)- Browns needs O-Line and have their choice. I think they go Wirfs but could easily see Thomas. Can’t be having baker die when he drops back.
NYJ: Andrew Thomas (OT)- Thomas who is still a great tackle falls into their lap. They also could go receiver or edge but they need to protect Darnold so he doesn’t see ghosts anymore.
LVR: Ceedee Lamb (WR)- Las Vegas feels weird but they go with the next best receiver. Don’t really see them going anywhere else here and they needed help at the receiver position. This next year will be Carr’s make or break year.
IND: Jordan Love (QB)- Felt like Indy had a chance in the beginning of the season and once Brisset came back from injury he looked awful. I don’t think hes the one to completely blame but this might be the best chance Indy has at taking a franchise QB and they get a guy who has a very high ceiling. He reminds me off Mahomes before he was drafted. With the right coaching I think Love can be very successful.
TB: Mekhi Becton (OT)- I thought about this one for a long time. With the top QBs off the board they have to go to another position. Safety is a need and Delpit and McKinney is there. I think their entire D-line are FAs but they seriously need O-line help. Becton is a monster who has all the keys to be a franchise tackle. Hopefully he’s good at tackling though.
DEN: Henry Ruggs (WR)- Dude might break the 40 yard dash record. He’s not only fast but a good route runner and has decent hands. This is close to the last step of a very dangerous Denver offense.
ATL: K’Lavon Chaisson (DE)- He played pretty well in the championship game and god knows the Falcons need pressure. They had nearly a fifth of their sacks in one game. They have to go edge rusher and I think Chaisson barely edges out Epenesa.
DAL: Xavier McKinney (S)- Honestly I’m not 100% sure what the cowboys need. When I look at their roster I think they should be a top 10 team but they aren’t. Secondary is a big need and I think McKinney will help the team with not only the pass defense but also the run D.
MIA: AJ Epenesa (DE)- Dolphins have a great edge fall right into their lap. With the top tackles off the board I think they have to pull the trigger on AJ and go best available with a position of need.
LVR: Kenneth Murray (LB)- Raiders defense was trash to say the least. They need a game changer at linebacker and honestly I think Murray has the tools to be that game changer but he may need a few years. Raiders go position of need and continue to put together an elite young roster.
JAX: Javon Kinlaw (DT)- Thought about the Raiders taking Kinlaw but ended up going a different direction so now he falls into the laps of the Jags. They will most likely cut Dareus and Kinlaw has the potential to be a top 10 player in this draft. Josh allen, Campbell, yannick maybe? And Kinlaw makes the Jags D-line top 10 in the league easily.
PHI: Tee Higgins (WR)- This one had me thinking for a long ass time. With Fulton still on the board Philly thinks about taking him but they have to get Wentz some weapons. They could also go Jefferson or Raegor who are a bit faster but with how bad their receivers are they take the best available and that's Higgins.
BUF: Laviska Shenault Jr. (WR)- Get Josh Allen some more weapons. John Brown is a great deep threat but they need a big body who can do everything and Shenault is that guy. Dude is a beast and will be great with the Bills.
NE: Yetur Gross-Matos (DE)- Doubt they go Tight end here. Offense was their biggest weakness but they were injury riddled and while their defense had little holes I think Matos will help the team more than a rookie tight end or another rookie receiver. They go best available that's not secondary.
NO: Jalen Raegor (WR)- Another guy who has a chance to run a 4.2 and the saints showed they need another receIver. Raegor is a much better Ted Ginn who will make the defense respect the deep ball or else they’ll be sorry. SaInts don't need much but Jalen will help Brees and Michael Thomas as well.
MIN: Trevon Diggs (CB): This makes too much sense. Brother of an active player on the team. Diggs may not be as good as Fulton but he just fits the Vikings and can replace Rhodes.
MIA: Josh Jones (OT)- I love this draft for the Dolphins. They get an absolute beast at the tackle position who dominated at the senior bowl. Pretty simple pick for them.
SEA: Terrell Lewis (DE)- The next 3-4 edge guys are all swappable to me but Seattle probably wont even pick here as they will most likely trade down but if they did pick the y need someone to be on the other side of Clowney and Lewis has all the tools to be a great edge rusher.
BAL: Justin Jefferson (WR)- Another 1st round receiver?? Yes. They cant rely on willie Snead and Miles Boykin I’m sorry. This offense goes from great to greater. This will seriously help Lamar pass better as Jefferson who is a pretty good route runner.
TEN: Curtis Weaver (DE)- Yall were so close. With Simmons and Landry they have a great young D-line but i'm not even sure who is on the other side of Landry. Weaver is a bit raw but shows flashes of greatness.
GB: Brandon Ayiuk (WR)- Last ASU receiver to go round one didn’t play great this year but Ayiuk looks legit. Rodgers can't be throwing to Adams and a bunch of UDFA. Ayiuk is a great number 2 next to Adams and will make ridgers job easier.
SF: Grant Delpit (S)- I'm sad :( but I am very excited Delpit falls to 31. Ward will most likely be gone and even if he stays there's a high chance hel;l be injured. HE was healthy this year but this is the first time in his career. Delpit fell off a bit this year but he still played great. Niners get a playmaker on an already stacked defensive.
KC: Kristian Fulton (CB): Congrats chiefs, fuck yall :). Chiefs are a relatively complete team but their defense still has a few holes. Fuller wasn’t great but still good enough however they need a better number 2 and people had fulton as a rival to Okudah earl;ier this year. He didn’t play great down the stretch but still is a great player and will be an amazing addition to the Chiefs defense.
CIN: Austin Jackson (OT)- With Jonah Williams coming back bengals can add Jackson to make a pretty decent O-line with the interior still needing some work but they get a decent prospect in Jackson.
IND: KJ Hamler (WR)- TY is always dead and Pascal is an alright 3rd guy but they need someone else. Hamler is a great slot guy who will get open and get some serious YAC. Offense gets better with this pick.
DET: Patrick Queen (LB)- First they go Corner then they go linebacker. Queen is a sideline to sideline guy who can be a serious game changer. Detroit gets some good run defense with this pick here.
NYG: CJ Henderson (CB)- Florida corner yadda yadda yadda. Had a down year but I still think he can be good in the pros. Has the tools to be a great corner and the Giants have to replace Janoris.
LAC: Lucas Niang (OT)- They cant let herbert die. Niang is very athletic and is very underrated IMO. He’ll be able to protect Herbert from Von, Clark, and Crosby.
CAR: Lloyd Cushenberry III (IOL)- Panthers need IOL and cushenberry is a top 3 in the class. Panthers get a big need to protect Cam a bit more.
MIA: Deandre Swift (RB)- First running back off the board at 39 and dolphins get a desperate need. I could have been running back last year and do the same the Laird did. Dolphins are getting spooky with this pick.
ARZ: Neville Gallimore (DT)- A 1 tech that will be a serious help in the run stoppage and help this cardinals defense make the opposing QBs throw to Byron Murphy and Pat Pete.
CLE: Ashtyn Davis (S)- 2 biggest needs are OT and S and browns got them both. Davis is a decent tackler and a bit raw but can fill the safety position in Cleveland.
JAX: Prince Tega Wanogho (OT)- A high ceiling player who is still learning the position but the Jags need to protect Minshew so he can get it to Jeudy and Wanogho is the best OT on the board.
CHI: Cesar Ruiz (IOL)- A pretty good blocker in space and can hopefully help things develop downfield so Trubisky can check it down ;).
IND: Raekwon Davis (DL)- Not really sure where to put Davis on my big board. A bit disappointing this year but still has serious talent. Can move around the line and with some experience can be a serious problem for opposing offenses.
TB: Jacob Eason (QB)- First QB of day 2 and Tampa hopefully gets their replacement of Jameis. Eason has a huge arm and Arians is salivating looking at him. Ok that was weird but Eason has some serious talent and really just needs consistency and ArIans can help him get it.
DEN: Damon Arnette (CB)- Plays a lot of press and was on the other side of Okudah so he got a bit more attention but still a very good player who plays physical and will start on an already really good Broncos defense.
ATL: Ross Blacklock (DT)- has a bit of an injury history but still has the tools and ability to be a great player. Top 3 interior D linemen in this draft and Atlanta continues to build their D-line.
NYJ: Julian Okwara (DE)- Passes the eye test and has everything you want in an edge rusher but has very little production at Notre Dame. A little worrying but he looks like an edge rusher and the jets need it.
PIT: Brycen Hopkins (TE)- First TE off the board goes to pitt. Mcdonald is aight but he is injured a lot and this would really just had another pair of reliable hands to the Steelers offense. With Big Ben back, Steelers are looking scary.
CHI: Cole Kmet (TE)- Back to back tight ends here. I think the bears still try out Trubisky for another year so no QB and Kmet helps trubisky with another reliable target.
DAL: Jeff Gladney (CB)- A really underrated prospect who has great IQ and plays man and zone both pretty good. Dallas sures up that secondary with the uncertainty of Byron.
LAR: Isaiah Wilson (OT)- A raw prospect who can learn from Whitworth as he gets older. Not really sure where the RAms should gho with this pick as they are pretty well rounded but getting younger is always a positive.
PHI: Noah Igbinoghene (CB)- sort of rocketed up big boards and deservedly so. Still a bit raw and learning but is better than anyone of the PHI secondary so its an improvement.
BUF: Zack Baun (DE)- Reminds me a bit of Dee Ford as he is quick off the snap and explosive but that's really all he has. Still raw and can develop into a serious good player on a great Bills defense.
ATL: AJ Terrell (CB)- Fell pretty far after getting hoed by Chase but he made some plays in the game as well. As good length but tends to get behind guys trying to catch up. Reminds me a bit of Akhello Witherspoon. Still Falcons get a good depth piece and a future starter.
MIA: Robert Hunt (IOL)- CAn play either OT or inside but I think is suited better at guard. Has the body and is very aggressive. If he is able to learn discipline he’ll be a great lineman.
HOU: Jonathon Taylor (RB)- Texans get an amazing running back to replace Hyde and with Lamar miller coming back they still need a work horse. A run game is huge and Taylor will help carry the load with Watson.
MIN: Matt Hennessy (IOL)- Needs to get a bit bigger to be an interior linemen but still possesses good technique and will need to protect Kirk.
SEA: Donovan People-Jones (WR)- Depending on if they re-sign Josh Gordon but if they dont they need a third receiver. DK is a beast and lockett as well but they need another weapon and could be a third down monster with good speed and strength.
BAL: Jonathon Greenard (DE)- A decent rusher who plays the 3-4 linebacker role and will help the ravens in a need if Judon walks.
TEN: Netane Muti (IOL)- Adding to the O-line the Muti is still raw but has good athletic ability and can lead to way for Henry.
GB: Matthew Peart (OT)- Can play inside or as a tackle and still needs some coaching on his hand placement but can be a very good bench piece or a starter is Bulaga walks.
SEA: Ben Bartch (OT)- Seattle drafting an o-linemen??? Crazy but with Brown getting older they need it. Athletic and still learning the position he will be a very good lineman learning from Duane.
KC: JK Dobbins (RB)- WOW, Dobbins falls to the chiefs and he can be the Kareem hunt that was missed. Williams is ok but JK dobbins will be a game changer and make the top offense even better.
CIN: Tyler Biadaz (IOL)- Fell pretty far and right to the Bengals. Top IOL who fell due to injuries but still a great player. Bengals can surely improve their O-line and offense will officially be spooky next year.
WAS: Trey Adams (OT)- Skins are in a weird spot because they have so many needs and not a ton of picks. Their main need is to not kill Haskins however. Adams has some injury history but when healthy is a 1st round talent imo.
DET: Joshua Uche (DE)- A smaller guy who plays in a 3-4 LB but will provide the terrible lions defense with a boost. Flowers wasn’t great but he played inside a bit more and was neutralized. Hopefully Uche will be able to take the pressure of flowers and get to the QB.
NYJ: (Denzel Mims (WR)- I’m not sure who the jets have besides Robby and Crowder for DArnold to throw to but they need more. Mims has a great catch radius which will come in handy when Darnold is throwing. (I’m aUSC fan its ok :))
CAR: Antoine Winfield jr. (S)- Nice. Reid is old and so is tre boston. Antoine falling this far is a huge bonus for the panthers. He's a playmaker and with Keuchly gone, Panthers need a playmaker.
MIA: Bryce Hall (CB)- It was either between hall or anfernee jennings but overall I went with secondary as Xavien is good but they need a solid number 2. Great ball skills but not a lock down guy. Would help the Dolphins get smoke turnovers and reminds me a bit of Sherman.
LAC: Jaylon Johnson (CB)- Hayward is still a top 7? Corner in the league and Desmond is a great slot guy but their other outside corner needs an upgrade. Is a good press guy who excels with a good D-line which the chargers have. Should be an upgrade for the chargers.
ARZ: Troy Dye (LB)- Troy dye is my draft crush. Has the physical tools and shows promise but is so slow to figure out a play its weird. Needs to work on his football IQ and by being in an NFL film room, he’ll develop it and become a solid LB.
JAX: Jordytn Brooks (LB)- Telvin smith being out has hurt the jags in a big way. Brooks is a bit on the smaller side but is still p[physical. Reminds me a lot of Telvin and the Jags hopefully get their replacement.
CLE: Nick Harris (IOL)- Browns need a coach and that's really it, they have talent but cant get it done. O-line depth is always good and nick HArris a great depth piece to have. He has the markings of a starter i the right scheme and I can see him stealing a starting job.
IND: Hunter Bryant (TE)- More weapons for the offense and with Ebron and Doyle FAs they should go TE. A poor man's Kelce but with the ability to be like him.
TB: Clyde Edwards-Helaire (RB)- Joes isn't it even though he's shown flashes. Clyde plays strong and seems to fall forwards. A lethal weapon for Arians’ offense.
DEN: Saahdiq Charles (OT)- Can also play guard but Bolles is a hot butt and they will need to replace him and with some coaching Charles can be that guy.
ATL: Cam Akers (RB)- Falcons should cut Freeman as he's expensive and not real;ly good anymore and if they do they cant be running with Ito Smith. Akers is going to be a great player and will be able to help run down the throats to open up the pass game for Matty Ice.
NYJ: Shane Lemieux (IOL)- Need to protect Darnold and Shane played on a great Oregon line and is physically gifted. Can be a day 1 starter and with some experience can be a centerpiece on the Jets line.
LVR: Jake Fromm (QB)- This is Carr's last chance and while Jake Fromm is very Raw and not exactly great, he’s better than Peterman and can push Carr to be better. Gruden can groom Fromm if he likes him enough and maybe take the reigns in Vegas.
LVR: Cameron Dantzler (CB)- Again the Raiders defense hot butt and their main problem was their secondary. A developmental corner who can become a good number 2 guy.
DAL: Justin Madubuike (IDL)- More work for the cowboys defense and this time its on the inside of the D-line. Biggest flaw is consistency and effort. Once he comes face to face with Jerry Jones he’ll get his head straight and play to his pro bowl potential.
DEN: Malik Harrison (LB)- Keep adding to that defense. Linebacker isn't the biggest need for the broncos but with Harrison still there, its hard to pass up. Malik has a high motor and still needs to work on his coverage skills but can develop into a beast for the broncos.
LAR: Anfernee Jennings (DE)- Donald and Fowler are not enough. Jennings fell a bit because of injury concerns but is still a quality player. Not super explosive but technical sound and will be able to contribute right away.
PHI: Evan Weaver (LB)- Philly needs a linebacker and weaver is a tackling monster who plays downhill with a high motor. This fills a huge need with a quality player.
BUF: Rashard Lawrence (IDL)- After drafting Ed Oliver they need a partner for him and Lawrence is that guy. A good gap shooter but needs help with pass rush moves. Can be a viable partner to oliver on the line.
NE: Thaddeus Moss (TE)- ugh yeah I know. Patriots need a tight end and moss had a great year with burrow. Even though Moss was a bit of a one year wonder he shows good run blocking and will be a decent Gronk replacement.
NO: Akeem Davis Gaither (LB)- A decent prospect who plays a bit like a safety but a position of need for the saints. High athleticism and can help the saints in the middle of the field.
MIN: KJ Hill (WR)- When Theilen went down, the vikings looked lost. Diggs was getting quadruple teamed so they need a good 3rd guy. More of a slot guy but can make catches and gets away from the DB.
CLE: Darrell Taylor (DE)- Good athlete but doesn't have great technique. Will be a good rotational player for the browns on their D-line.
LVR: Gabriel Davis (WR)- Another receiver for the Raiders as they still need depth. The go to guy for UCF and plays strong. Lots of size on the raiders and he adds to that.
BAL: Brandon Jones (S)- Earl showed his age a bit this year but he still played well. Jones will be a good depth piece that can start if need be. If he can learn from Thomas how to be a better ball hawk, dude will be a beast.
TEN: Leki Fotu (IDL)- Add to the D-line with a good 1 tech guy. Still has a bit to learn but can be a starter in year 2.
GB: Albert Okwuegbunam (TE)- With Graham most likely on his way out, lets replace him with a younger him. Albert was a TE1 last year but idk what happened. Has good jump ball ability but just not expensive enough. Still helps Rodgers.
DEN: Solomon Kindley (IOL)- Could see him go earlier but he falls to Den who needs to fix their O-line. Kindley plays relatively stiff and loses his footing but still shows lots of promise.
KC: Bradlee Anae (DE)- Pairs him up with Clark and anae is another one of my draft crushes. Has great technique but isn't super explosive. Still with experience he’ll be great.
Atypic transnational entertainment and entertainment enterprise (Edtee), governing activity or “Punta” of the world economy and scenario of structural inequality in the distribution of medals-champions and the economic benefits that it produces.
Established in 1968-1981 and consolidated between 1982-2017, the globalization of sport is its conversion into EDTEE, which works with the logic and dynamics of any transnational and its objective is to produce a profitable, daily and massive show: “In 2006, it moved US $213 billion in the US and generated 2 and 7 times more profits than the automotive and film industries, respectively ... Globally, in 2014: Generated 1% of GDP ... Its value was 1.5 billion US $, ... equivalent to US exports in one year ...

American NBC ... committed to pay 1,250 for the rights in the USA of the OG 2000 ... and the OG Invierno 2002 .... Then he proposed: 2,300 for OG 2004-2008 and OG Winter 2006 ...

With Pepsi Egypt, in October- November 2015; in the summer of 2015... With an organization sponsored by Nike, in the USA...”.

Professional whose job is to prepare and compete. Their types of employment relationship are: a) It combines the work of representation of your country in the ODM competencies with that performed in one of these scenarios: Professional Clubs whose events endorse the MDG; transnational events endorsed by the MDG; Professional Clubs or transnational events endorsed by the MDG, with the mediation of the State: Cuba case. b) Work on competitions organized by independent Transnationals of the MDG.

They buy: a) The organizers-managers of the show, the right to use the symbols and the logo of the events in the advertising of their products. b) The media spaces to spread their associated advertising and identified with the symbols and logos of the show.
They broadcast the show, buy the transmission rights to the organizers-managers and sell the spaces to the sponsors for their publicity. Since the 90s of the twentieth century, they have been acting simultaneously as organizers-managers and disseminators of the show.
They provide the products used by competitors: instruments (balls, balls, snowshoes, garrochas, javelins, bicycles, etc.) and on their bodies (shoes and clothing); and sponsor events and athlete-competitors. At the close of fiscal year 31-05-2015, in millions of US dollars: the 10 leading companies (from the US and Europe) had sales of 99,315, led by Nike (USA) and Adidas (Germany) with 30,601 and 19,113, which obtained net profit 3,273 and 723.2, respectively .
It is the destiny of the show. It is the basis of the operation of EDTEE, whose fundamental objective is the conversion of all the inhabitants of the planet into fanatics of sport, that is, spectators who internalize the advertising messages issued during the events and become compulsive consumers of goods and services. Of the diffused brands.
Regardless of the types of governments and their politicalideological orientation, the State through public policy embodied in a legal-legal norm and an administrative-organizational structure (ministries, institutes, secretariats, etc.) with programprojects and budget, has the following functions in the EDTEE : Adapt the Participation of the Country to the Organizational Nature of the Show: When the organizermanager is the ODM, it arranges, prepares and guarantees the participation of its national team in the event. If the organizersmanagers are Transnational Professional Clubs or transnational companies, support the events and contribute to their success. Produce and Reproduce the Sporting Ideology, Incorporating it into its Ideological Baggage and Legitimizing Itself, Making Sport One of its Ideological Apparatuses: Regardless of the result of the country’s participation (win or lose) in events, the State will legitimate with the support and promotion that makes the sport through public policy, thus operating the process of conversion of sport into an ideological apparatus. Obviously, the legitimacy of the State increases when the country obtains victories - by winning competitions and / or organizing events - that are identified with state management. In addition, the State extends the sports ideology to the rest of the social scenarios. Financing, Disseminating the Sports Ideology, Exercising Violence and Creating the Conditions that Guarantee the Success of the Show in Its Territory (being the venue): The operational part of the shows is the responsibility of the National Organizing Committee formed by the host State , private organizations and the national instance of the ODM (in the OG and World Cup are the Olympic Committee and the National Federation) that works with its international instance, which is the highest authority of the event, which in the case of the It is the IOC and in the World Cup it is FIFA. The IOC and FIFA have reinforced and hold absolute power both events and the funding has been transferred to the State: “In September 1995, the IOC announced that as of 2004, the share of television rights granted to Olympic city centers would fall from 60% to 49%, that is, the revenues of the National Organizing Committee will be reduced ... FIFA announced on 03- 23-17 that will eliminate the National Organizing Committees ... and will take total control of the organization of the World Cups from 2026 to generate more income, minimize costs and be more effective ... “(Diario Peru 21: 03- 04-17; Altuve, 2018: 178- 179). “The London 2012 OG cost more than US $ 17,500 million, of which the State financed 83.48% (US $ 14,610 million)” (America, economy, economy, markets and finances: 19-12-12); In the 2014 Soccer World Cup and the 2016 OG of Brazil, the investment was, mainly, public: “It was - according to the State - 21 billion US $. For Zimbalist it is between 35-40 billion US $. The final cost has not been specified ..., but ... it is much higher than the state appraisals because investment is missing ...: 1) To compete and win the venue of the events ... 2) At the opening and closing ceremonies ... 3) In the overpricing in the construction and remodeling of the infrastructure “ . The State produces and reproduces the sports ideology highlighting the advantages and benefits of hosting a successful event, guaranteed by the investments made and exercising symbolic and physical violence to ensure the normal performance of the show. Obtaining certain remunerations through taxes, by the economic impact generated, etc.

The concentration of power in sport begins with the regressive distribution of the medals-champions, emerging the International Division, that is, the specialization of a small group of countries to win and the vast majority specializing in losing.
a) Winners or Protagonists of the World Cups 1970- 2014: The protagonism is concentrated in Brazil, Federal Germany, Argentina, Italy, France and Spain, which have been the champions and occupied 19 of the 36 positions from 2nd to 4th place, and in much lesser degree, in the countries that occupied the other 17 semifinalist positions: 14 Europe; 2 America and 1 Asia. The specialists in losing are those attending the World Cups that did not reach the semifinals and the rest of the world that participated in the qualifiers. b) Assignment of Quotas-Countries to the Continents and Contribution of Players from the Professional Clubs to the National Teams, in the 2014 World Cup: Europe had 13 (40.6%) quotas-countries and 190 of their Clubs contributed 563 (76, 4%) players, of which 176 were contributed by 17 Clubs from Germany, England, Italy and Spain; the rest of the world was assigned 19 (59.4%) quotas-countries and their Clubs contributed 171 (22.1%) players. America: 1) It had 9 countriesplaces (Brazil is included by venue) and the other 3 continents 10. 2) Their Clubs contributed 102 players and together Asia, Africa and Oceania 69 (ECA: 07-08-14). There is an international division with: Europe, led by Germany, Italy, Spain, France and England has prominence with the first places in the World Cups and the largest allocation of seats-countries, and their Clubs bring the largest number of players to the World Cup; America, in second place of countries-places, its protagonism is reduced to Brazil and Argentina and it was assigned the production of players (raw material) exportable to Europe that allows to guarantee the success of the spectacle of the Professional Clubs and the World Cup: “They are the biggest exporters ... to the Clubs ...: With 20% in 2011 ...; in 2013 Argentina with 1,945 and Brazil with 944 headed the ranking; between January 2011 and June 2014, Brazil transferred 2,311 players, of which 1,311 (56.72%) went to Europe ...; in 2014, the Brazilians were protagonists in 1,493 operations ... followed by Argentina (801) ...; in 2015 the most transferred players are Brazilians with ... 512 ... Argentina with 254 ... is the second. The Professional Clubs of Europe endow the Worlds with most of the players: The World Cups are privileged scenarios ... where negotiable players are displayed for the competitions of the Professional Clubs and thus continue repeating the cycle indefinitely in which FIFA participates, who paid US $ 70 million to distribute an average of US $ 2,800 for each day a player was in the 2016 World Cup , shared between the current team and any other team for which he had played in the 2 years of the tie “ .
a) General: Winners are 15 (7.31%) countries (Group of Nine, Ukraine, Holland, Spain, Australia, South Korea and Cuba) who obtained 3,053 (66.35%) medals. Losers are the rest of the world, led by 92 (44.87%) countries WITHOUT medals and the following groups: 1) 39 (19.02%) countries (P) obtained 68 (1.47%) medals (M). 2) 38 P (18.53%) gained 508 (11.04%). 3) 11 P (5.36%) obtained 367 (7.97%). 4) 10 P (4.87%) gained 605 (13.14%). b) Inter Continents: Medals won by Europe 2,357 (51.09%), America 926 (20.07%), Asia 874 (18.91%), Oceania 267 (5.78%) and Africa 177 (3, 81%). c) Between Continents: Europe: Winners: 8 P (3.88%: Russia, Germany, England, France, Italy, Ukraine, Holland and Spain) earn 1,478 (32.03%). Losers: 41 P (19.91%) who won 879 (19.06%). America: Winners: 3 P (1.46%: USA, Cuba and Brazil) get 710 (15.39%) M. Losers: 38 (18.44%) who won 216 (4.68%). Asia: Winners: 3 P (1.46%: China, South Korea and Japan) earn 636 (13.78%) M. Losers: 42 (20.4%) P who won 238 (5.13%). Oceania: Winners: 2 P (0.98%: Australia and New Zealand) earn 266 (5.76%) M. Losers: 15 countries (7.27%) that won 1 (0.02%). Africa: Winners: 9 P (4.39%: Kenya, Ethiopia, South Africa, Nigeria, Morocco, Algeria, Egypt, Zimbabwe and Tunisia) earn 161 (3.49%) M. Losers: 44 (21.35%) P who won 16 (0.32%). d) Interior of a Continent (Latin America and the Caribbean in America): Winners: 7 P (3.41%: Cuba, Brazil, Jamaica, Argentina, Mexico, Colombia and Trinidad and Tobago) earn 297 (6.45%) M. Losers: 32 countries (15.6%) that earned 36 (0.78%) “(Altuve, 2008: 214-217). In OG 2016 20 countries (9.8%) won 672 (68.99%) medals and 117 (57.35%) won NO; the Group of Nine obtained 489 (50.2%) and Latin America and the Caribbean won 67 (6.87%). The International Division and concentration of power in sport is extended with its conversion into EDTEE and the deepening of the regressive distribution of the economic benefits produced. With fewer and fewer exceptions confirming the rule, the winning athletes-competitors come from a small group of countries led by the Group of Nine; If we add to this, the transnational companies that organize shows, sponsors, media and sporting goods, are the ones who appropriate the highest volumes of income produced by EDTEE and come from that group of countries, we are facing a competitive and economic cycle that begins and ends in the US, Europe, Japan and China, with an important appropriation of the benefits by the MDG. The public sports policy of these few national states with power in sport is identified and serves their interests and those of their transnational’s, while most of the states without or with little power, adapt their public policy to a foreign sports dynamic to your interests.
a) Sports as Producer-Player of Capitalist Ideology: The establishment of industrial capitalist society based on the principle of performance and cult of the body from a reasonably profitable perspective, materializes in the movement with the transformation -among others- of its ludic aspect, replaced by modern sport, conceived as a comparison of bodily performances to appoint champions, record records or obtain medals and trophies. Modern sport is the result of industrial capitalism, it is a product of society where -for the first time in historyperformance becomes the central category, in the concept that guides, organizes, determines and serves as a reference for the functioning of the institutions. It arises in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century fulfilling an ideological function, because it produces and reproduces the ideas of performanceproductivity- profitability-linear and infinite progress, State- Nation, ideas-base of capitalist society, and is presented as a space social hierarchy and democratic differentiation, equality, fraternity, noble struggle, peace, fair competition, honesty, in opposition to the conflicts between the capitalist powers that led to the first (28-07-1914 to 11-11-1918) and second World War (01-09-1939 to 02-09-1945). In globalization, the ideological function of sport has been broadened and perfected with the intervention of the media, producing and reproducing the ideas of: a) To be a universal social space of absolute egalitarianism, in contrast to the aberrant differences in production, consumption and enjoyment of existing goods between nations and between social classes and serving as a justification for such inequalities. b) The record-champion as a symbol and expression of progress and recognition of individual effort, representation of the Nation-State and synthesis of the greatest human virtues. c) Individual physical perfection based on science and technology, recorded in the record and materialized in the champion’s body. d) The collective physical perfection or corporal wellbeing for all the bodies of the buyers-fanatics-consumer public, achievable through the consumption of the body, by the body and for the body, when contemplating the sports spectacle. Collective happiness is achieved by consuming inherent and / or associated merchandise objects, linked and identified with the sport, particularly with the recordchampion (corporal image of the champion, model of overcoming, healthy body, patriotism-nationalism, etc.) By producing and reproducing the ideas of performanceproductivity- profitability-linear and infinite progress, State- Nation, individual and collective physical perfection, well-being of all and ideal model of human coexistence, sport is presented as an archipelago of happiness in the midst of a storm of unhappiness that is the rest of society, becoming the illuminating beacon to which other social institutions must follow; becoming a source of consolation, hope and resignation, because despite the abysmal social differences in sports we are all equal and the transition to happiness is not so far, it will be achieved as the rest of society look more and more like the sport. This is the ideological function of the sport turned into a Transnational Entertainment and Entertainment Company (EDTEE), it is the globalizing sports ideology.
The medicine has been: “Since the eighteenth century a fundamental tool in the management of the population and a decisive resource for the incorporation of bodies in the productive order of capitalism,” transiting processes whose result “has been an absolute medicalization of society and full identification of the problem of health with the interests of the economy” . In the 20th century, we assist to: “A broad and unlimited process of medicalization” is the unstoppable extension of the medical paradigm in our culture. With the doctors and their knowledge as decisive, it has been “Imposed by an act of authority and its object is not only related to the disease, but with a broad and diffuse concept of health”, it does not recognize the existence of a territory external to the Medical codes and medicine became one of the components of the economy “because it produces wealth for itself given that health becomes a consumer good representing a wish for some and a luxury for others”. In other words, “medicine leads to the incorporation of health and disease into the game of the market, with its production agents (laboratories, pharmacists, doctors, clinics, insurers) and with their consumers (the real patients and the potential sick people that we are all) “. The irruption of health in the economy produces the perverse effect of generating: “An infinite demand and a generalized dissatisfaction of the client, since the increase of the medical consumption does not suppose an improvement of the level of health, unlike how it is promised”. What it brings as consequences: 1) The creation of a growing and changing “frontier offer with respect to medicine, which ensures new experiences of physical wellbeing, other nutritious alternatives and other modes of body stylization”, covered with “a series of consumer goods that resort to the ideal of healthy life: low calorie food products, programs and instruments of physical conditioning, etc. “2) The infinite demand for health by customers produces enormous economic benefits for large pharmaceutical companies, which they intervene with more prominence in medicalization and decrease that of doctors. “Around this need for intervention ..., a whole industry of commercial interests flourishes. There are, for example, companies that market over time to doctors (usually scarce and, therefore, valuable in the logic of supply and demand) selling it to pharmacists’ visitors ... There are also other types of transnational companies, such as International Marketing Services Health or Close Up, which collect information about the medicines prescribed by doctors, build profiles on their prescription habits and design huge databases that are then purchased by large pharmaceutical companies in important figures of money”. In globalization: “The medicalization of society has succeeded ... capture the body as an object of consumption and production of capital. Healthy lifestyles, the care of food, the need to have a body in shape are promoted, not only as a way to reinforce the primacy of individualistic interest, but also as a way to create a market where at first it seemed not exist”. The institution of health produces and reproduces the individualist ideology of capitalism and hides the existing authentic power relations, as it is “A mode of relationship of the subject with its own corporeality. A mode of relationship with oneself that is useful for a system that seeks the decomposition of bonds of solidarity between subjects. Individualization works, therefore, as a tool that privatizes or personalizes the structural contradictions of the capitalist system. In this way, the invisibility of these conflicts is ensured and the global order advances in its perpetuation. The health industry, in this sense, would play a decisive role in the construction of an immune society10, of individuals locked in the aseptic space and assured of their privacy, afraid of the contagion that may come from the outside and that embodies alterity” . Sport and health have become important economic activities and are producer-reproducers of capitalist ideology in their specific field of action. They fed each other and simultaneously in the processes of conversion into economic activities and producer-reproducers of the capitalist ideology. The ideal of healthy life and body in the form of medicine finds reciprocity and complement in the idea of corporal well-being for all of sports, is part of the ideological production-reproduction of both institutions in order to justify, make viable and advance their conversion in economic activities: The EDTEE that aims to convert all the inhabitants of the planet into a public-fanaticconsumer of the spectacle that it produces intensively and extensively every day; and the great health industry to cover the infinite and unsatisfied demand for health that it created and creates permanently (in 2016, global health expenditures were just over US $ 3.88 trillion). A close relationship between EDTEE and the big health industry is established: a) The entire medical device and infrastructure of the large health industry was installed in the EDTEE: sports medicine with its annexes and similar (nutrition, psychology, technology, etc.), on the one hand, sustains the material production of record-champions feeding the idea of individual physical wellbeing, and, on the other, it becomes a foundation and reference of obligatory and indispensable consumption so that the publicfanatic -consumer of the sport can access the collective physical well-being. b) The device that produces record-champions (subjecting the body of athletes-competitors in the object of scientific experimentation and in the use of materials and instruments in the preparation, training and competence) of the EDTEE, was installed in the large industry of health, who by reworking it and adapting it to the needs of ordinary people, on the one hand, considerably broadens its offer of services, and, on the other, it is legitimate, promising well-being, a healthy body and a healthy life.

2020.01.14 00:23 Horror-AssociateMy Partner and I are Alaskan Police Officer's tracking a horrible monster in the Alaskan Wilderness.
My name is Nanouk Sun. The name Nanouk is variant of Nanaq, meaning Polar Bear. My friend Jenny Johnson calls me that sometimes. I am a 23 years old Alaskan policewoman with long black hair. I am a Inuit. An Eskimo. My forefathers lived in Igloos and hunted fish and the Narwhal. The Narwhal is now a protected species. Only the Eskimo can still hunt them like they did for centuries. My Police partner is pretty blonde, Jenny Johnson. She is my partner but more importantly my good friend. We came up through the Alaskan Police Academy together. Jenny is the same age I am. Our police Chief is Roy Purvis who has been in law inforcement for many years. He too grew up in Alaska like Jenny and myself. We all work for the Anchorage, Alaska Police Department that has about 500 Police officers. It is now December, 2090 when bad things started to happen. My partner Jenny and I were summonned into our Police Chiefs office. When we got there he asked Jenny and I to have a seat as he handed us a police report about a man named Barry Reed who was mysteriously killed by someone or something. The report stated that Barry Reed grew up in Alaska and was an expert in bear trapping. He even went to Russia to trap Siberian Tigers. Barry arranged a floatplane to this remote section of Alaska to hunt Moose. Many people were wondering why Barry would want to hunt in this place because there was no real wildlife game there. Only thing there was mosquitoes and flies. But Barry went there nevertheless. The pilot dropped off Barry's equiptment and a raft because Barry wanted to look around the lake as well. When the floatplane came back to pick Barry up all they found was Barry's skull and teeth that experts identified as Barry's. "What human or beast killed Barry." Chief Purvis said to us. "I want you ladies to go to the spot and see if you can find anything out over there ok?" he continued. "Yes Sir!' Jenny and I said in unison as we got up out of our seats and went to the roof of the Police Station where our Flying Police cars called-Spinners were located. The Police Chief had also mentioned that the Alaskan Eskimos noticed less bears lately like Polar Bears and other kinds of bears. And this was not just due to climate warming either. It seemed like somebody or something was killing them off unnaturally. Jenny and I were well armed. We each had a Glock Nine Milimeter Handgun, which carries 15 Rounds and a Twelve Guage Shotgun for each of us in the trunk. When we reached the location where Poor Barry Reed was mysteriously killed we both had our guns drawn. 'Jenny there is no wildlife, Black Bear, Kodiak Bear or Grizzly Bear in the area . Just a bunch of mosquitoes." I said. "Yes Nanouk. I know. " Jenny replied as she swatted a Mosquitoe that bite her. "Yes. Why would Barry Reed hunt in this remote place ?" I said to my partner . "Beats me Polar Bear. That may be a question that forever goes unanswered." Jenny replied. 'Hey jenny Are you hungry? Lets go get something to eat. I have not eaten anything all day." I said to her. "Ok Polar Bear. I am hungry too. We can think about how we are going to handle this case over lunch." Jenny answered me still looking over the Barry Reed crime scene. Jenny and I then took our Police Spinner to a Burger place. We both loved Burgers so we each had Cheeseburgers, French Fries and Soda. After we had lunch we checked out a few more remote places in Alaska but could find nothing suspicious so we went home for the day. The next day at The Anchorage Alaska Police Department our Chief Roy Purvis wanted us in his office again. He mentioned at around Dusk the other day that there was another strange disappearance. A Girl Scout Troop was hiking through a very wooded but easily seen trail led by Troop leader Barbara Thompson. When one of the girls lagged behind and went missing mysteriously. The Girl Scouts name was Ripley Morgan. Ripley was so eager to explore and look around she lagged behind the rest. Her friend Nancy Beck look behind her and noticed Ripley look at something in shock, then look at Nancy to maybe wanting to tell her something, then She stepped into the dense forest and dissappeared. Nany Beck told the Troop to please stop and look for Ripley but she was never found. Ripley was never found later either when the Alaskan police including Jenny and I went looking for her. This case was sounding like the Barry Reed case. It sent a chile down my spine. My partner Jenny and I later did an hours long search above in our Spinner Police Craft . We went over forests and water but found nothing still. Whatever this was that was killing Alaskan wildlife and humans was going to be a formidable foe to us I feared. The next day there was an all point Bulletin of two missing Alaskan Police Officers named Donald Stein and Bob Edwards, who Jenny and I knew well and liked. After weeks of looking for them across the Alaskan Wilderness nothing came up of the two officers either. Jenny and I were having a breakfast of eggs, toast bacon and orange juice as we thought about this most puzzling case. Who or what is taking humans and wildlife without a trace ? And unfortunetely after most of these attacks it happens to rain or snow wiping away all the tracks and evidence that even police Bloodhounds or cadaver Dogs cannot pick up. My thoughts went back to poor Ripley Morgan . That poor Girl Scout who vanished. "I think the key to Ripley's vanishing is what she was looking at. Either some evil human, animal or worse pulled her off of that trail. " I said to my partner. "Yes Polar Bear. I agree. Ripley could of voluntarily moved off the trail to investigate it herself too. But I think that there is no way that young Girl Scout left her troop and went on a marathon cross country hike by herself through those dense Alaskan Woods." Jenny answered as I nodded my head in agreement with her. The Horrifying killings of humans and animals in Alaska did not stop. Hikers had recently found the severed head of a well know twenty three year old hiker named Ralph Mercury in the dense woods. Ralphs body was never found. I turned to my partner Jenny "Do you think this creature could be supernatural being coming through a portal to kill Alaska people and wildlife?" Jenny chuckled then turned serious. "It's possible Polar Bear. This case is so puzzling no answer is too far out." "I am glad I have a great partner like you who has my back." Jenny continued. "Thanks Jen. We have each other's back." I answered her smiling. I did not know how we were going to do it. But Jenny and I along with the rest of the Alaskan Police Department had to stop whatever it was that was doing all these killings. Something deadly was doing this. Something horrible. The next day in Anchorage Alaska was very heavy snowfall. But Jenny and I still had to do our jobs and get out there. I drove the Spinner Police Craft this time as we headed over the Alaskan waters. We were flying for about two hours when Jenny cried "Look Nanouk. Look down there. I think we found our predator. I cannot believe what I am seeing." I then looked down to see what Jenny was seeing and I could not believe my eyes. it looked like an African Elephant sized Smilodon. A Saber Tooth Cat on a huge floating Ice floe eating a dead Polar Bear. "I thought those things were extinct along with the T-Rex." Jenny said. "So did I. I guess with all the Alaskan drilling for oil we must of awakened something horrible." I replied seriously. I then lowered The Police Spinner nearer to the huge Cat. "Woah careful Nanouk. Look at the size of him and those teeth." Jenny said in fear. "Yes. lets see how he can handle a couple rounds of this !" I said as The Police Spinners machine guns on each side rattled off into the huge Cat. Amazingly enough the machine gun rounds of the Spinner had no effect on the monster at all. Jenny and I decided to head back to the Stationhouse and call it in. When we reported it back we were right back in our Chiefs office. "What you saw ladies was a Smilodon. A Saber Tooth Cat. This Cat lived about 2.5 million years ago from the early Pleistocene period through the modern Dinosaur period. It was first discovered in the early ninteenth century." Chief Purvis said to us. "Wow Sir. You sure know a lot about this Dinosaur Cat" Jenny said impressed. "Well I was always interested in history as a kid and always liked Dinosaurs too." Chief Purvis went on saying. "This Smilodon Saber Tooth Cat is a huge problem." Chief Purvis continued looked at us very seriously. "You said it Chief." Jenny replied. "We have to kill it somehow. The machine gun bullets from The Spinner did not harm it at all. " I chimed in. "Maybe you ladies can find it's cave and try to blow it up or something. Do any of you ladies know how to us a hand held Missile Launcher?" Chief Purvis asked. "Yes. We both do. We were both trained at the Alaskan Police Academy to use that weapon too if needed. " I replied smiling hoping that could kill the monster. "I put an all points Police bulletin on this monster Cat. I want you two ladies to grab one of our Hand held missile launchers and try to find this predator and blow it to Kingdome come!" The Chief said. "Will do !" Jenny and I answered together. After Jenny and I left the Chiefs office we found a hand held Missile Launcher and set out to find our Cat. "To bad we have to blow up this big Cat I always loved cats." Jenny said with a smile on her face. I shot her a look that told her this was no time for jokes as she immedietely went quiet. My Police partner Jenny and I then landed our Police Spinner next to a big remote cave that the Smilodon could be living in. This Cat was huge but smart and elusive it was not going to be easy capturing him. Jenny and I walked side by side in the cave. I was holding the Missile Launcher. The huge cave was dark. Then we heard a growl and saw two red glowing eyes that turned out to be a Black Bear. We went a little further in the cave and saw that it was a Black Bear family living inside so we retreated. Wrong Cave. Just when we got into our Spinner police Craft our Chief called us to head back to the Police Stationhouse on the double so we did. Back in the Police Chiefs office. The Chief had his huge television viewing screen on. Many other Alaskan Officers were in the Police Chiefs huge room too. "Good ladies you are just in time." our Police Chief said as a Special Bulletin was coming over the air. On the huge TV screen There was a young and pretty, female reporter interviewing Fifty years old, Alaskan Oil Billionaire Ivan Orlov. Who had his lovely blonde, Twenty Two years old supermodel, wife Alexi besides him wearing a White fur Hat and White Mink Coat holding the hand of their son. Four years old, Uri Orlov . Ivan was speaking english, in his Mother Russia Accent. Wearing a million dollar Double Breasted, Navy Blue Suit. "Yes. My men have captured The Saber Tooth Cat and working with Alaskan Wildlife Biologist we will be bringing it soon to The Anchorage Alaska Zoo as a Top Exhibit" He told the female reporter haughtily. Ivan Was not a likeable man but he did show how the very rich become even richer by capturing the Smilodon and displaying it as a top attraction for the Alaskan Zoo. He was a brilliant Businessman. Like PT Barnum of Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus. "Soon everybody Worldwide will come to this Zoo to see my exhibit. The Seventh Wonder of the World !" he continued proudly as his beautiful wife just smiled and nodded her head in agreement to everything he said. The Chief and all the police at the stationhouse could not believe what was happenning. But thats the way it was going to be. The Smilodon was going to be a top attraction at the Anchorage Alaska Zoo and there was nothing we could do about it. Nothing at all ! I felt sick. I just pray that The Giant Cat does not escape …... or there will be hell to pay for all of us. The End Pen name-Scotty H. G.

2020.01.04 05:03 imack52A very deep dive into the current state of the Raiders. Where we have been, where we are, and where we can go a three-part piece. Part III
If you missed Part I If you missed Part II Part III 2020 NFL Draft Targets: I will show draft targets and possible draft scenarios depending on if our idyllic FA scenario mentioned in Part II actually played out and also if it didnt. FA Scenario as a reminder was addressing the Safety or ILB, CB, DT, and WR position. Picks 12, 19, 80, 81, 90, 111, 204 Our team needs in order without FA are in order Tier 1 WR LB CB Tier 2 QB S IDL IOL Tier 3 EDGE TE with OT and RB being positions we are set at according to Draft Network With that in mind without any of the free agents above being signed Players who could be available at 12 and 19: Isaiah Simmons 6’4 235 LB/S who reportedly runs a 4.31 has a 40 inch vertical and this season totaled 97 tackles 14.5 TFL 7 sacks 3 INT 2FF 6PD he is a generational talent. CeeDee Lamb the 6’2 190lb WR from Oklahoma who demonstrates exceptional ball skills, YAC ability, and elite run blocking comparing favorably to DeAndre Hopkins Grant Delpit 6’3 208 safety is one of the most scheme versatile safety prospects in a long time showing exceptional ability in coverage and playing in the box as well as contributing as a blitzer. He has displayed a weakness of not being a consistent tackler but his size and likely 4.5 speed would be tough to pass up. Kristian Fulton 6’0 200 Fluid man coverage corner who elevated his stock by absolutely dominating every Alabama WR who had the misfortune of lining up in front of him Xavier McKinney 6’1 200 safety from Alabama who may be a poor mans Minkah Fitzpatrick which isn’t a bad thing. Henry Ruggs 6’0 190 WR from Alabama who an absolute burner in the mold of Tyreek hill who should be able to contribute immediately. Kenneth Murray 6’2 234 LB from Oklahoma, he is a scraping sideline to sideline LB who is extremely instinctive and quick to react. Javon Kinlaw 6’6 310 DT for South Carolina is a very explosive player who has incredible upper body strength with his size and could be as impactful as Chris Jones. An ideal yet realistic combination in the scenario where our needs aren’t addressed in FA would be: Option A draft Isaiah Simmons at 12 and at 19 draft Henry Ruggs Option B if Isaiah is not available Ceedee likely would be and with the second pick we would choose Kenneth Murray. Option C if both Ceedee and Isaiah are unavailable would be to draft Delpit and hope Ruggs/Murray are available at 19. Round 3 and beyond RB Chubba Hubbard Cam Akers Najee Harris WR Denzel Mims Michael Pittmann Devin Duvernay CB Cameron Dantzler IOL Solomon Kindley OT Trey Adams LB Chazz Surratt EDGE Anfernee Jennings S Antoine Winfield Kyle Dugger Ashtyn Davis Shyheim Carter K Rodrigo Blankenship So what would an ideal draft look like if addressed none of our needs in FA 12: Simmons LB Clemson 19: Ruggs WR Bama 80: Cameron Dantzler CB MSU 81: Cam Akers RB FSU 90: Kindley OG Georgia 111: Denzel Mims WR Baylor How would you draft if we signed AJ green at WR Leonard Williams at DT Byron Jones as a CB/S and Cory Littleton as an ILB or Justin Simmons at Safety? Option A Draft Simmons with pick 12 With pick 19 trade down with a realistic partner being the Bears (seriously) for the 43rd (our old second) 50th and 145th pick especially if they have a QB they wanted to target. As a disclaimer, I chose the Bears because they have the draft capital in the 2020 draft to trade up but they most certainly wouldn't trade with us after how the Mack trade has gone. Its more to illustrate that our 19th pick would be the equivalent of the 43rd, 50th, and 145th pick. Teams that might actually want to sneak back into the first and trade with us could be the Panthers, Jaguars, or the Buccaneers. Any team trading up to draft a QB loses a ton of leverage and we could demand a lot more from them in draft capital than my proposed trade but I wanted to lean more on the conservative side and show a fair draft compensation for the 19th pick. The 19th pick is equal to 875 pts per Jimmy Johnsons draft value chart and with the Bears proposed side of the trade being worth 903.5. With the biggest needs filled the Raiders could start looking into luxury picks with these prospects to consider at 43 and 50: Yetur Gross Matos DE Penn st Curtis Weaver DE Boise St Terrell Lewis Edge Alabama Neville Gallimore DT Oklahoma Tyler Johnson WR Minnesota Justin Jefferson WR LSU Brandon Aiyuk WR ASU at 50 Small school safety prospect from Lenoir Rhyne 6’2 220 Kyle Dugger. Option B Draft Simmons with Pick 12 Then at pick 19 hope draft Grant Delpit is available or draft Xavier McKinney S from Alabama if we decide to address ILB with Little or draft Kenneth Murray if decide to address safety with Justin Simmons. Draft Prospects I love Isaiah Simmons: He is a dynamic player and someone who has the athletic ability to play safety, linebacker, and an edge rusher in a 3-4 system. In our system he would be playing the Anthony Barr role as the uber athletic LB who covers occasionally rushes the passer but plays like a traditional OLB. The difference in Barr and Simmons is that Barr was an Edge coming out of UCLA that the Vikings have forced into the role of being 4-3 or 4-2-5 OLB forcing him into coverage and being in the middle of the field which in my opinion wastes his natural ability to rush the QB. But in a 4-2-5 system Isaiah’s skillset would be amplified putting him in coverage where he shines and occasionally lining him over the A gap where he can then rush the QB. Imagining him being the LB that drops back in a Tampa 2 coverage and you really can see imagine his impact being similar to Urlacher, Kuechly, or Derrick Brooks in coverage. Henry Ruggs: He is fast, like very very fast. Having Ruggs on your team would affect so many different aspects of the game. At a legit 4.25 speed and being a respectable 6’0 190 he isn’t a John Ross or Philip Dorsett, he has shown the ability to break tackles get YAC and even go up and high point the ball. Corners would have to play very off him safeties would have to roll their coverage towards him similar to when we play the Chiefs and Tyreek Hill. This would be huge for our running game and for our other receivers like Tyrell and Hunter to run underneath routes. Grant Delpit and Xavier McKinney: These prospects remind of the 2018 draft as they respectively remind me of Derwin James and Minkah Fitzpatrick. I think they both will be good. At 6’3 208 Delpit has shown he has shown elite coverage ability and versatility by being a very good blitzer. Where he has shown weaknesses is in his ability to be a consistent tackler. He likely wont test as well as Derwin but is athletic enough to have a similar impact I really think drafting him you are essentially getting what Justin Simmons is right now. At 6’1 200 McKinney is a bit smaller than delpit and like Fitzpatrick McKinney might be the better coverage player even dropping into the slot at times. He is a good consistent tackler who has some pop to him but is probably better as a deep safety prospect as there have been some times this season he has been run over. He has shown the ability to blitz and like delpit would like be scheme versatile. Denzel Mims: 6’3 215 WR Baylor. It seems every year Baylor has a big very fast WR prospect who will undoubtedly get 1000 receiving yards at some point in their career and I think Mims is the next one. While there are a lot of WR’s to like in this draft including other ones highlighted above he seems like a person I would want to take a flyer on with one of our 3rd rounders with the idea that he wouldn’t necessarily make an instant impact but could develop into something special. Solomon Kindley OG Georgia 6’4 336 quite simply he is a Gabe Jackson clone a monstrous man who really impressed with his tape from the 2018 National Championship lining up at LG facing the Alabama defense which featured Quinnen Williams and future 2020 NFL draftee Raekwon Davis. He held his own against Quinnen and dominated everyone else in front of him. He is big and nasty in the run game playing beyond the whistle but surprisingly in pass pro hes very passive. He is quick and nimble for his size and if hes able to get down to 325 he could develop into a special OG. Projected starters on offense: LT Kolton Miller LG Richie Incognito C Rodney Hudson RG Gabe Jackson RT Trent Brown TE Darren Waller WR AJ Green Tyler Johnson WR Tyrell Williams Denzel Mims Slot WR Hunter Renfrow Tyler Johnson RB Josh Jacobs Cam Akers Deandre Washington QB Derek Carr Projected defenders front 7: DE Maxx Crosby Dion Jordan DT Leonard Williams Maurice Hurst DT PJ Hall Jonathan Hankins DE Clelin Ferrell Yetur Gross Matos Arden Key OLB Isaiah Simmons ILB Cory Littleton or Kenneth Murray depending on if we go Cory or a safety Option A trading 19 with the bears to acquire picks 43 and 50 Secondary CB Trayvon Mullen Isaiah Johnson S Justin Simmons or a lower-rated safety such Antone Winfield or Kyle Dugger if choose to sign Cory Littleton S Jonathan Abram CB Byron Jones Cameron Dantzler Option B staying put at 19 but losing out on the change to add additional weapons at WR or EDGE Secondary CB Trayvon Mullen Isaiah Johnson S Xavier McKinney or Justin Simmons S Jonathan Abram CB Byron Jones Cameron Danztler Overall Summary A lot of things would have to fall our way but it isn’t that crazy to think that the scenarios illustrated above could play out given our draft capital which places us at 6th in value, our current salary cap of 69 million putting us at 8th best. With the move to a new stadium, a state with no income tax, with low cost of living, and with the needle pointing up, the Raiders seem like a very enticing place to play as a free agent. We currently have pieces at key positions: QB RB OL TE CB S and Edge. If you got this far thanks for reading as I didn’t intend to put in a lot of work into this but 8000+ words later here we are. TL;DR Guy who makes long posts does it again after a few years cause of optimism brought on by this season. With a few more good picks, a couple of trades, and a couple of free agency acquisitions this could be a very very good team for the foreseeable future.
2019.12.20 18:20 JoyAngel98If all the past 13 winners completed on an all star season, who do you want to win?
This is inspired by other posts that have been posted the past few days. If all the winners from season 16-28 competed against each other on an all winners season , who do you think will win? Their fan base doesn’t count, just their pure dancing ability on the show. You can say the top three, just the winner or put them in order from 1-13. Also who do you want their partner to be or do you want them to keep their partner they competed with? A reminder of the winners: 16 Kellie Pickler her partner was Derek Hough 17 Amber Riley her partner was Derek Hough 18 Meryl Davis her partner was Maks Chmerkovskiy 19 Alfonso Ribeiro his partner was Witney Carson 20 Rumer Willis her partner was Val Chmerkovskiy 21 Bindi Irwin her partner was Derek Hough 22 Nyle DiMarco his partner was Peta Murgatroyd 23 Laurie Hernandez her partner was Val Chmerkovskiy 24 Rashad Jennings his partner was Emma Slater 25 Jordan Fisher his partner was Lindsay Arnold 26 Adam Rippon his partner was Jenna Johnson 27 Bobby Bones his partner was Sharna Burgess 28 Hannah Brown her partner was Alan Bersten THIS IS ALL FOR FUN AND CURIOSITY.
