      I’m hoping Ray’s retirement announcement comes during this homestand. The likelihood is probably down there with my Trump resignation prediction though.

      They were still wearing this shade of blue when I got there. I believe Joe Kapp, by far the biggest turd of the coaches I listed above, wanted the switch to the bolder Navy Blue, which was his one positive accomplishment (well, plus the 1982 Big Game). At about the same time the Haas ownership switched the A’s from Charlie’s Kelly Green to the bolder Forest Green, which I also like much better.

          They were pleasingly more competitive than I expected for 2-1/2 quarters, but the missed short field goal and the unwise decision to go for it on 4th and 4 near midfield made the rest of it pretty predictable.

    Mark davis talking sense?

    “About a year ago, before our Tennessee game, I met with Derek Carr and Khalil Mack to ask their permission to have Tommie Smith light the torch for my father before the game in Mexico City. I explained to them that I was asking their permission because I had previously told them that I would prefer that they not protest while in the Raiders uniform. And should they have something to say, once their uniform was off, I might go up there with them. Over the last year, though, the streets have gotten hot and there has been a lot of static in the air and recently, fuel has been added to the fire. I can no longer ask our team to not say something while they are in a Raider uniform. The only thing I can ask them to do is do it with class. Do it with pride. Not only do we have to tell people there is something wrong, we have to come up with answers. That’s the challenge in front of us as Americans and human beings.”

    I’m really liking this team. I realize the dingers are from a weird ass rabbit ball (maybe the most meticulously designed rabbit ball ever), and I wonder how many of them would be fly outs and how many of them would be doubles if the ball took a nap, but I think we’ve got a 2019 contender on our hands, and the way things swing these days, maybe a 2018 contender.

    Olson may have gone too far with the stretch. He was limping a little coming off the field, and then got pinch hit for.

        No need to resist because it is certainly CW at this point. Also already saw “they sat for the anthem and forgot to ever get up”.

        Every team is going to have a bad game at some point, but that was the biggest no show I have seen in some time. And the way KC has been out of the gate we cant have another anytime soon. (related-my fantasy team that no one cares about had DC going up against Cousins. I HAD a big lead at 5pm last night…)

        • doctorK doctorK Sep 25,2017 4:24 pm || Up

          Just to be clear, my original comment actually had nothing to do with anthem protests, but was simply a gut reaction to watching a team that obviously did not prepare properly for a football game. A lot of this is on the coach, but the players take the majority of the blame (I mean, this is your JOB, that you’re being paid a lot to money to do – at least show some enthusiasm for it).

          • dmoas Sep 25,2017 4:36 pm || Up

            That’s how I read read your comment. The response was just a little tongue in cheek fun in jest to the shit show.

              Yeah, I’m probably being hyper-sensitive, given that I sit well to the right of most of you FKers.

              For the record, I have no problem with the anthem protesters. For example, my only problem with Bruce Maxwell is that he doesn’t always remember to catch the damn ball.

              The only thing worse than owners kneeling for the anthem would be owners not kneeling for the anthem.

              It’s still lip-service product-placing bullshit – it’s just interesting that they think the right placement for their product is on the liberal side.

          Well even if they had it, the most they could offer to any one player is $300K.

          Really, all the A’s can offer is their story, $300K and possibly the rights to be a FA in a couple years. Maybe saying they would only require a couple years could be a selling point like with Cespedes?

            All we have’s our honor, a tolerance for pain, a couple of college credits, and our top-notch brain.

              You got that CD on repeat! It’s so good.

                I’m obsessed tbh

                  Have you listened to the Mixtape? It’s good too but I like the broadway better of course.

                  I was not aware that existed!

                  I’m scared looking at some of the artists.

                  Common’s Who Tells Your Story is very good! And Fallon does a pretty hilarious King George. But then a lot of that is the song itself.

                  I listened to a bit of it last night. I appreciate whoever let Ja Rule sing. I needed the laugh.
