    Baseball, Basketball, Golf...these are all sports I like to play but HATE to watch. SOoooOOOOooooOOOOOoo boring. I would watch Nascar before I watched any of those, I might nap through half of it, but I would at least have the hum of the cars to help me snooze.

    Inside of a dog...it's too dark to read.

    golf is okay if you only watch the final round. the first 3 rounds are something you only watch if you really really want to watch skilled golf play because the leaderboard is meaningless aside from who gets cut.

    The final round of golf is very enjoyable if you've ever played the game enough to appreciate just how good those guys are.

    Or how they don't pee their pants making approach shots on 16-18.

    Can't stand baseball. I can tolerate golf now. I picked up disc golf recently so I've gained some appreciation for the deep thought and planning required for real golf but since I'm not watching it to improve my game (I do watch disc golf tournaments) I can't really focus for more than a few holes. I'll leave it on in the background though.

    I can't figure out basketball being boring though. Sloppy college ball is pretty unfun *coughBig12thisyearcough* but in general basketball is excellent and exciting.

    basketball is the best

    I am good at it and love watching the momentum build for a team and all the crazy shots at the buzzer

    American football is fun when it's a shootout or a defense is putting on a show

    but the league's policies might as well be from the 50's

    The problem with basketball is that if the game is any good, you just wasted hours of your life you could have saved by just having the two squads have a free throw shooting contest during warm ups. I hate the end of basketball games.

    The fouling everyone thing is a much bigger problem in college than pros because college players are terrible free throw shooters. In the NBA you'll see a lot more attempts at buzzer beaters especially when the team with the lead has a 90+ percent free throw specialist.

    College players are terrible free throw shooters? Hell, anyone over 6'9" is lucky to be 60% from the stripe.

    In the college game though, the end can be incredibly frustrating.

    There's tons of great college free throw shooters on every team and there's tons of garbage free throw shooters in the NBA. The foul game sucks at all levels. There should be a point in the last few minutes that the fouling team doesn't get the ball back after foul shots. Put in a triple bonus is something.

    College players are worse at everything on average including free throws and are less experienced which makes the fouling far more effective than in the NBA.

    I'm not really even sure what I'm going to do when they go.

    Do I keep rooting for a team I feel betrayed by?

    Do I try to find another team to follow even though I have no real connection to it?

    Do I just stop caring about football now that I've lost what little stake in it I had?

    Judging by how Sonics fans have handled this situation you spend the rest of your life bitter and wishing for days long past.

    well that's already how I spend most of my time anyway so

    Well that's not really a startling revelation considering they are pro's, but to say that "college players are terrible at free throws" is a fairly ridiculous statement considering marquee NBA players such as Jordan, Howard, and Drummond are floating around .500 or lower.

    I don't understand why it's ridiculous or why you're arguing with me.

    Rumor is Buffalo is trying to trade for Bradford.

    I figured that was going to happen. they have a second 3rd rounder, bradford can't be that high priced

    Buffalo only has six draft picks and Bradford would cost them 13 million bucks next season. They'd be nuts.

    No, because he sucked.

    They got the initial 4th, which they traded for Bryce Brown. Johnson didn't reach the milestone to net the the 3rd.

    If the Bills think they are a decent quarterback away from winning the I can maybe make sense of it...assuming Bradford can stay healthy.

    they have plenty of cap space to take the hit and still resign huges(26m) so it depends on just how crazy they are

    no team has officially contacted the rams for bradford. they might just be maneuvering to get him to take a pay cut by asking for something ridiculous
