    Huge story that won't get a shred off attention from the usual suspect mainstream media outlets, just like the Hunter story. If this doesn't tell you what's going on, then you are lost.

    that was one of those 'how can he look at slow mo replays and call that an interception'? kroft clearly touched it first, brings it in, the db gloms on, and they both go to the ground. by the eye that looks like no worse than a tie for kroft, and ties always go to the receiver. if we were to call picks this way, every other catch would be a pck bc dbs would just wrap their hands around the ball. it doesnt even matter if the db manages to get more surface area of the ball. if kroft still has it secure, its his catch. case closed. another example of 'i dont know what the fuck the ref could have seen to not make that offensive reception'

    Wouldn't it be cool if the Bills beat the Bucs in the Superbowl in Tampa and erased all the bad karma of wide right and the ownage of Brady/Gronk in the same game???? Oh they also beat Billicheat along the way because the taping was too hard to do in an empty stadium. We also would beat Pitt with our 3rd string players before the playoffs. It surely wont ever happen, but I'm throwing this out there now in case somehow it did. Thanks, B

    I say we let Allen do Allen. Do what the defense gives you. No one in the league is as gifted as Allen using his legs in a goal line situation to not take advantage of that because it doesn't fit a narrative is idiotic. Lit wants to act like it doesn't count as much. Sure we can talk about how great his passer rating was after the game if he throws a TD but it doesn't equate to wins how he did it. What does equate to wins is situational football and making sure you are doing the most efficient play to score 6.

    And there’s another one. How do they deflect from Donald Trump and his criminal empire? They make things up about Hunter Biden. Oh my God, his dad got him a job. Like that never happened before. I wonder how many people on this message board got a better job because they knew somebody? Was there any criminal activity with that job that Hunter got? No. There was no criminal activity. Was there any criminal activity with Joe Biden in the Ukraine? No. There was no criminal activity. But, what is the criminal activity with Donald Trump in the Ukraine? Yes! And that’s why he was impeached. I mean, they keep trying to play this card about how Hunter Biden wasn’t qualified for the job that he got. Let me ask a question. Was Ivanka qualified for her job in the White House? What exactly are the qualifications for Mr. Secretary of everything, Jared Kushner? The more I deal with Trump supporters the more I understand why the very best demographic that he is polling in is an educated white men

    Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports Overall a pretty clean game though not without controversy The Los Angeles Rams and Buffalo Bills combined for 12 total penalties with a mere eight assessed. Despite the relatively low numbers of flags impacting the game, the ones that happened were not without controversy. Let’s check ‘em out. Standard and Advanced Metrics Penalty Counts The charts are pretty clear-cut for these. The Bills were pretty average with about one less penalty assessed than average and the number called (true count) almost perfectly average. The Rams were better than average in both measures. The league average went slightly down for assessed count and slightly up in true count. Both remain well below the 2019 season average. After three weeks it’s starting to look like there’s a concerted effort to reduce flags this year. Penalty Yards These charts reinforce the information from the counts above. The Bills were pretty average and the Rams performed better than average. The Bills negated nine yards on top of their 55 assessed. The Rams negated a mere three yards on top of their assessed yardage. Penalty Harm Buffalo Bills With only seven penalties and several having bigger stories, let’s just discuss them all except the Darryl Williams false start because those almost never have an interesting story. Mitch Morse wiped out a six-yard run by Devin Singletary on first down. The six yards tack on to the ten yards assessed for harm rating. All yardage is counted at one tenth giving Morse’s flag a rating of 1.6 Harm. Brian Winters’s illegal block above the waist is a similar story except change it to three yards negated and on a pass to Gabriel Davis. Josh Allen’s facemask call was pretty clearly the right call despite its rarity. The unsportsmanlike conduct flag is impossible to judge. We can sit back all day and say “So and so gets mad at the refs all the time” and ultimately it’s meaningless unless we know what was actually said. Penalty harm rates what ultimately did occur rather than what could have. In the case of offsetting penalties I made the decision a long time ago to rate them as zero because each team gets a do-over, rather than trying to sort out the “coulda been” for each team. In this instance though I’ll discuss the coulda been for Buffalo as they scored a touchdown on the play. If Winters hadn’t have been called for holding they would have declined the roughing-the-passer call and scored. They did anyway after what felt like 42 tries at it, but this flag could have been a big deal. Finally we have the offensive pass interference on Tyler Kroft that was declined due to the Rams getting a gift from the refs an interception. Let’s see if the OPI was warranted and also get angry again at how bad of a call the “interception” deal was. OK, so the offensive pass interference is clear cut. Kroft earned the flag. I won’t quote the “joint control” rule because in this case everyone has it right. A “tie” goes to the passing team. Even worse, there’s no tie. Kroft snatches the ball out of the air and it never wiggles. He has clear control all the way to the ground. As an aside, there should have been a second flag here. While falling Kroft is in a “defenseless posture” and getting hit in the neck/head area with a forearm is a big no-no. The pass should never have been thrown by Allen. The catch by Kroft was never going to stand because of the OPI. But it should have been a do-over thanks to offsetting penalties. Instead it was a complete and utter BS interception. Anyway, the Bills racked up a scant 6.4 Harm, which is a pretty clean day overall. Los Angeles Rams I already covered the roughing call above and I’m going to go out on a limb and say nobody cares about the two holding calls by Havenstein and Whitworth. Let’s jump right to that defensive pass interference call everyone but Bills fans were angry about. First, for our proprietary stat, it was assessed at 10 yards (note, this is important) and gave up three free downs as it occurred on fourth. That’s 1.0 for the yards and 1.0 for each down for a total of 4.0 Harm. Now then, was it justified? Remember that assessed yardage? Defensive pass interference is a spot of the foul assessment, meaning the ref indicates it happened ten yards past the line of scrimmage. We’ll come back to that. But first, a GIF. I’ve marked the line of scrimmage and five yards after because blocking within five yards is acceptable. There is illegal contact within five yards, but I’ll skip the rules lecture and say none of it applied here. So let’s see what the rule says about after five yards. I’ll quote the rule and add my notes in parentheses. “Beyond the five-yard zone, if the player who receives the snap remains in the pocket with the ball (Allen was), a defender cannot initiate contact with a receiver who is attempting to evade him (receivers nearly always are trying to evade as it does them no good to be tangled up). A defender may use his hands or arms only to defend or protect himself against impending contact caused by a receiver (this applies if there’s a gap and the receiver tries to run them over which wasn’t the case).” At minimum there’s a really good case for illegal contact. That would have only been a five-yard flag but still a first down, keeping the Bills alive. Let’s read the DPI rule though to see if the refs got it right. Here are a couple sub-clauses for DPI that give examples of what is considered to be illegal. “Contact by a player who is not playing the ball that restricts the opponent’s opportunity to make the catch” and “Cutting off the path of an opponent by making contact with him, without playing the ball” are both considered DPI. Both of these are really good descriptions for what happened. Want it to be more clear? Here you go (emphasis mine). “It is pass interference by either team when any act by a player more than one yard beyond the line of scrimmage significantly hinders an eligible player’s opportunity to catch the ball.” That’s right, a lot of commentary on this flag cited the five-yard rule, which is true for illegal contact. But for pass interference it’s a one-yard rule and is in effect as soon as the ball is in the air. So yes, Darious Williams could have been rightfully called for illegal contact at the eight-yard line (five yards past the line of scrimmage). However, the ball is in the air when Gabriel Davis was at the six-yard line and Williams was still making contact to cut off his path without playing the ball at the three. The refs got it right. Now that we’ve put that to bed, for those of you still doubting that the refs are calling illegal blindside blocks in the manner I’ve described twice now...well here you go. The Rams ended with 6.3 Harm on the day, which is also a good day at the penalty office—except, I guess, when one of those penalties gives your opponent another chance to score the winning touchdown.

    Normally stuff like this would piss me off since the Bills were so dominant for 5/8 of the game, but they deserve it and probably need to hear it. Maybe it will finally sink in that the game doesn't automatically end the minute you go up by two scores. We actually blew our 28-3 lead faster than Atlanta did in the Super Bowl.

    Is this another prediction about trumps future you are making here, Hip? You haven’t done well about predicting trumps fate the last couple years, you know. Should I bank on this one? Specifically, that he’s going to the slammer (eventually, after years of litigation) after he gets out of the White House? I’ll be watching👁 p.s., if they prove he’s a shady crook traitor that sold out his country for a few rubles, hang him from the nearest yardarm......

    Photo by Brett Carlsen/Getty Images Nothing is official, but talks are underway The Buffalo Bills’ organization is talking with Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz about bringing fans in to watch the team’s next home game. The talks were reported by WBKW. According to Ali Touhey of WBKW, the Bills’ organization wants to bring 9,000 fans into the team’s Thursday Night Football match-up with the Kansas City Chiefs on October 15. While Touhey tweeted that representatives from the state were open to only 7,000 fans, that was refuted by Poloncarz, who tweeted that number was determined by the county, adding that officials at the state level have yet to agree to anything at all. The Bills have hosted two games this season in an empty stadium, defeating the New York Jets in Week 1 and the Los Angeles Rams in Week 3. The team played a road game against the Miami Dolphins, who allowed fans in the stands, and they will travel to play the Las Vegas Raiders this week, who will not allow fans. The Bills then travel to play the Tennessee Titans on October 11, and there will be a maximum allowed attendance of 12.5% of the stadium’s 69,143-person capacity, or 8,643 people. Poloncarz has a call with “key stakeholders” on the matter scheduled for September 29. This is a developing story that we will continue to monitor and bring you the latest news as it breaks.

    I thought the same thing. The Bills have been dicked over by way worse calls than that (the Rams defender did wrap him up past five yards), and they would never get as much as a mention in passing. Christ, that entire game up to that point was called heavily in the Rams favor. The ridiculous INT call that started the comeback, Allen getting an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for nothing that gave LA the ball at our 35, the facemask call on the fucking QB during our last drive. C'mon.

    CNN’s Brian Stelter Hilariously Tries To White Knight NYT’s Trump Tax Story, Fails Miserably Posted at 4:30 pm on September 28, 2020 by Sister Toldjah As my RedState colleague Nick Arama has extensively documented, the New York Times hit piece report from over the weekend on President Trump’s tax returns was not the supposed “bombshell” against Trump many in the media and on the left made it out to be. Contra to hyperventilating journalists and Democrats alike, the report proved Trump was telling the truth when he claimed he wasn’t releasing his taxes because he was under audit. Not only that but the paper “found no previously unknown ties to Russia” in the Trump records they reviewed. Also, the paper’s own reporting notes that Trump paid a total of $5.2 million to the U.S. Treasury in 2016 and 2017, with the $750 amount being floated in some press reports something that he actually paid in addition to those millions. Though the Times’ article ended up being a big nothingburger, conservatives expressed concern over how the tax documents were obtained in the first place. RedState managing editor Streiff raised the question in his Sunday write-up, pointing out that it just so happens that the NYT ended up getting their hands on tax records that were subpoenaed by New York County District Attorney’s office. Hmmm. Whoever it was who leaked the documents, it was illegal to do so, as conservatives like Turning Point USA Founder/President Charlie Kirk noted: This lead CNN’s chief media correspondent Brian Stelter to chime in with this bit of dum-dummery: I was one of many who pointed out the obvious flaw in his argument: Key words there being “real journalist”, of course. To repeat: There is a big, YUGE difference between “having legal access” and “having legal access to release” something. I mean, it does not take a lawyer nor a journalist to be able to make this deduction. All it takes is someone not afflicted with a chronic case of TDS. That in and of itself explains pretty much everything we need to know about Stelter and his laughable expertise when it comes “legal access” issues. https://www.redstate.com/sister-toldjah/2020/09/28/cnns-brian-stelter-hilariously-tries-to-white-knight-nyts-trump-tax-story-fails-miserably/

    NY Times Story on Trump’s Tax Records Actually Proves Trump Was Telling the Truth, Blows Apart Democrat’s Conspiracies The New York Times claims they have obtained roughly twenty years worth of Trump-related tax return data, for him and hundreds of related companies that make up his organization, according to Red State. It is unclear who leaked the data and information. The New York Times claims they received the data from someone who had legal rights to the information. Although it allegedly came from someone who had a legal right to the information, this doesn’t mean they had the legal rights to share it. Speculators assume that Democrats had something to do with it, likely trying to expose Trump for what they thought would be relatively shady information, however, it appears to have backfired, as it actually proves Trump has been telling the truth. Trump has been saying that he wasn’t releasing his taxes because he was under audit. Indeed, according to the New York Times, Trump has, in fact, been under an audit for about ten years, proving he was telling the truth. From the NY Times: “But to turn that long arc of failure into a giant refund check, he relied on some deft accounting footwork and an unwitting gift from an unlikely source — Mr. Obama.” “Business losses can work like a tax-avoidance coupon: A dollar lost on one business reduces a dollar of taxable income from elsewhere. The types and amounts of income that can be used in a given year vary, depending on an owner’s tax status. But some losses can be saved for later use, or even used to request a refund on taxes paid in a prior year.” “Until 2009, those coupons could be used to wipe away taxes going back only two years. But that November, the window was more than doubled by a little-noticed provision in a bill Mr. Obama signed as part of the Great Recession recovery effort. Now business owners could request full refunds of taxes paid in the prior four years, and 50 percent of those from the year before that.” More from Red State: So, if you have any issue with the way Trump got a refund and then didn’t have to pay more, blame Barack Obama; it was perfectly legal because of the law that he signed. So Democrats really can’t attack Trump for using a law they put in place that he was perfectly entitled to use. Bottom line? I want someone who actually has the business acumen to employ what he can within the law, that’s the guy I want in charge of the economy. Another big item to put paid to Democratic collusion theories — the NY Times found no previously unknown ties to Russia in the records. Or anything apparently illegal. That was another thing which Democrats have been hoping to find and that just got blown apart big time. Now, the President has disputed the accuracy of some of what the New York Times has said. No doubt he’s bothered that someone illegally leaked the information. But seriously, not only doesn’t it seem to be troubling, it looks on first blush like it puts paid to all the Democratic conspiracy theories against him. https://www.redstate.com/nick-arama/2020/09/27/nyt-reveal-on-trumps-tax-records-actually-prove-trump-was-telling-the-truth-blow-apart-dem-conspiracies/

    This ones tough because so many people deserve both a ball and a goat. Balls Allen - For being a beast. Defense - For bending but not breaking in the 1st half. Edmunds - For making a few absolute stuffs at the LOS, especially near the goal line. Bass - Hasn't missed much (if anything?) since Week 1. McD - He can coach. Goats Allen - For throwing into double coverage and taking (what felt like) 20+ yard sacks numerous times. Defense - For bending and then shattering into a million of pieces in the 2nd half. Refs - Of course, though they did bail us out. Edmunds - For getting lost half the time. Mcd - For not shoving the replay both monitor into the refs asshole.

    “Evidence of Heterogeneity in Effect Sizes Racial/ethnic discrimination tended to pose a greater risk for Asian-descent and Latino youth’s socioemotional well-being compared to African-descent but Latino youth’s academics compared to those of African descent. These differential effects are consistent with other scholarship on mean racial/ethnic differences. For example, prior studies have documented greater depressive symptoms and lower self-esteem among Asian Americans compared to Latinos, African Americans, and Whites (Brown, Meadows, & Elder, 2007; Twenge & Crocker, 2002). Latinos also tend to exhibit higher levels of depression than their White and African American peers (Harris, Gordon-Larsen, Chantala, & Udry, 2006; Twenge & Nolen-Hoeksema, 2002) and are more likely to drop out of secondary school and less likely to attain a Bachelor’s degree or higher versus their White, Asian American, and African American peers (Kena et al., 2015). Our study findings suggest that these mean differences in socioemotional adjustment (particularly challenging for youth of Asian and Latino descent) and academics (particularly challenging for Latino youth) may be driven, at least in part, by experiences of discrimination. Future research, however, is needed to determine whether Latino and Asian American youth are experiencing similar or greater levels of discrimination than their African American peers to support this conclusion. The weaker findings for adolescents of African descent may also reflect parents’ socialization efforts, as African American families are more likely to employ socialization strategies that prepare their children for the bias they may face in multiple contexts of their daily lives (Else-Quest & Morse, 2015). It is also possible that stronger effects for African American youth may be observed for other developmental domains not assessed in the current meta-analysis, such as effects of physical health. Prior meta-analyses have documented stronger effects in the link between discrimination and hypertension for African American adults (Dolezsar et al., 2014), and it is possible that cardiovascular risk factors in adolescence (e.g., overweight status, blood pressure) may be similarly more susceptible to discrimination in African American adolescent populations.” This is the conclusion from the study you cited. DID you happen to read it? “Summary and Conclusions The findings reported in our meta-analysis clearly illustrate the pernicious effects of racial/ethnic discrimination across multiple domains of adolescents’ health and well-being, including their mental health, their engagement in risky health behaviors, and their educational success. The psychological, behavioral, and academic burdens posed by racial/ethnic discrimination during adolescence, coupled with evidence that experiences of discrimination persist across the life course for persons of color, point to discrimination as a clear contributor to the racial/ethnic health disparities observed for African American, Latino, and Native American populations compared to their White counterparts (Mays et al., 2007; Williams & Sternthal, 2010). There is some evidence for variation of effects by individual and study characteristics (i.e., race/ethnicity, race/ethnicity-by-gender, developmental period, retrospective timing, country), but much more work is needed to clearly elucidate who is most at risk for racial/ethnic discrimination and what contexts buffer or exacerbate such risks. There is, however, comprehensive evidence of the far-reaching effects of racial/ethnic discrimination for youth, and as such, future scholarship must also begin investigating intervention and prevention efforts. To date, the intervention science is quite limited but suggests benefits of self-affirmation activities that reduce stereotype threat responses (Bowen, Wegmann, & Webber, 2013; Cohen, Garcia, Apfel, & Master, 2006) and family-centered interventions that give children and adolescents tools for dealing with experiences of discrimination (Brody et al., 2012). Yet in addition to ameliorating the effects of racial/ethnic discrimination at the individual level, we must also work toward preventing the occurrence of discriminatory treatment on a larger scale. How to combat the prejudicial and stereotype views held by adult authority figures and peers is an open question. In their review of prejudice reduction programs, Paluck and Green (2009) identify potential in prevention efforts that facilitate more inter-group contact and cooperation. Although the costs of such programs are likely high, the economic and social costs of continuing to ignore adolescents’ experiences of racial/ethnic discrimination is even higher.” LOLOL this makes me laugh so much. Did you even read any of this? I honestly don’t know what you’re trying to prove here. Unless you were trying to prove my point I? I guess? Thanks!
