    Yes. And @BourbanStreetis correct that no one goes to the games.

    NET, et al.

    It's because even though his model picks us to win all but 3 individual games, when taken together, several of the individual games he has us picked to win are very close calls, and we're likely to lose a couple of those toss-ups/close games.

    You mean Seton Hall, correct?

    Fla St over the Bills by 6

    FWIW, KU's win percentage is like 15 points lower at the Sprint center in KC than at Allen Field House. Still not really neutral, but definitely not the same advantage as playing in your home court.

    OT: Midtown Development

    We stayed in the Angard Arts Hotel when we were in town for the Butler game. I really liked it and will stay there again next time we're in town if we can get a good rate. Walking distance to the Fieldhouse and the 'Fetz. The rooftop bar had a cool view of the city and a nice selection of Scotch and Bourbon. Did not get a chance to try the restaurant but it's supposed to be good.

    UDDawg, Today at 2:13 PM Lol... I almost made an account on their board to say, "That's Dr. Chaifetz to you."

    I respect Old guy so much more if he's actually fake. Mostly because it's just such a bizarre thing to do. Let me spend hours per day trawling the billikens dot com message boards for YEARS under a fake persona with a fully-fleshed out backstory?? I love that idea.
  12. Thank you! This makes sooo much more sense than what I was thinking.
  13. I'm confused on this. Are G-league teams not NBA team affiliates like AAA and MLB? If a player enters a deal like this, would they be committing to an organization? Then would they not enter the draft the next year? If that's the case this seems like an absolute steal for the NBA and their teams if they can get dudes locked in for $125k and then just pay league minimum and call them up the next year. Someone tell me if I am thinking about this completely wrong?? Or would they still have their massive signing bonuses like they normally do?

    MLS 4 the Lou

    This is def. true. Economic analyses have shown again and again that cities don't typically recoup their financial investments from paying for these things. Receipts: Forbes Bloomberg It can and has been done without taxpayer funding (e.g. the San Francisco Giants stadium, which IIRC was built 100% with private funds-could be wrong, though). Or it has been done successfully with taxpayer support (e.g. the revitalization of downtown Detroit with the help of Comerica park and Ford field). Personally I don't think taxpayers ought to be subsidizing billionaires' for-profit organizations. It reminds me of people who go out to eat and complain about tipping. Like, no, actually, if you can't afford to tip, you can't afford to eat out. Imo, if you can't find private funds to build a stadium, you can't afford a pro team, and you shouldn't be asking for a handout from taxpayers. Having said that...if people had wanted to vote "yes" because they wanted a team to come to STL that badly and think it's worth it, more power to them. In any event, it seems to have worked out for the best.

    The rumor that won't die: NBA in STL ?

    Gotcha. Makes sense
