2016 NFL Season Thread
Today, 09:39 PM
Two months away from the Games of the XXXI Olympiad aka the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
August 5-21, 2016
Hate to be a wet noodle but I have very low hopes for this season.
Let's see, they didn't buy out Girardi, didn't trade Glass, Staal, Nash, or anyone at the draft, didn't sign any free agents, didn't have a 1st or 2nd round pick in the draft, and everyone is a year older.
So, lets go Rangers?
Will the United States win their third consecutive Olympic Gold Medal and their fifth major basketball tournament overall in Rio de Janeiro 2016? Will there be a new Olympic champion in Rio?
Can anyone stop the United States women's team who are gunning for their sixth straight Olympic Gold Medal?
The Summer Olympics basketball tournament runs from August 6-August 21.
I started this topic because Endwell, NY, a suburb of Binghamton, has produced some athletic children. In December, ESPN made a documentary about a 62 game winning streak for Maine-Endwell's High School Football team that can be watched at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yKUrMYs-yAM Now Endwell won their first game in the 2016 Little League World Series against a team from Rhode Island. Next they play a team from Tennessee. I have an aunt and uncle who live in Endwell.
Another year, another season of NCAA Division I FBS and FCS College Football.
National title game in Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, Florida on January 9, 2017
NBA Season #71 is upon us.
From the opening tip on October 25, 2016 to the last possible NBA Finals date on June 18, 2017, it should be another exciting NBA season.
Fresh off bringing Cleveland their first major pro league sports title in 52 years, will the Cleveland Cavaliers repeat as NBA champions?
Will the Golden State Warriors bounce back to win the NBA title to overcome their 2016 NBA Finals collapse?
If you're a huge mixed martial arts fan in the UFC, Pride FC, or other MMA competitions, you can discuss MMA here in this thread.
For UFC fans, you can catch UFC action and shows on Spike TV. For Pride FC fans, you can watch PRIDE on your cable box only on Fox Sports Net, or simply FSN.
I'm a huge fan of both UFC and PRIDE. :2thumbs: :)
31 days after the 2015-2016 final, the 2016-2017 Champions League Qualifying Round 1 starts at 12:00 P.M. with Flora Tallinn of Estonia hosting Lincoln Red Imps of Gibraltar. There are four games today, with the other three being Valletta of Malta hosting B36 Torshavn of Faroe Islands, FC Santa Coloma of Andorra hosting Alashkert of Armenia, and The New Saints of Wales hosting Tre Penne of San Marino.
Last season Isles finally won a playoff round. New owners take over July 2nd. Could be a lot of moves coming up.
Will the Pittsburgh Penguins repeat as NHL Stanley Cup champions? Will the San Jose Sharks return to the Stanley Cup Finals?
Who will be the two teams that will contest in the 2017 Stanley Cup Final?
Another NHL season and a World Cup of Hockey tournament will be exciting.
Anybody catch the "Thunder From Down Under" beat the crap out of Sharba Mitchell on Saturday? The real, undisputed 140lb champ is back!
Okay football/soccer fans,
Another UEFA European Football Championship is on tap in 2016 in France.
This time, it's a 24-team format.
June 10-July 10, 2016
I thought this whole past season was a blessing. It sucked, but it was timed perfectly with Melo's injury and the organization having it's own pick in the draft for once. In less than two weeks we'd be getting the news of just how much the team would change for the better next year. The upcoming season holds promise with both the interjection of a young stud and the decision making process in the hands of an untouchable legend. Dolan was going to stop meddling and just hang out in the...
Jeremy Lin signs with the Brooklyn Nets!!!
The 2016 UEFA European Football Championship and the 2016 Summer Olympic men's and women's tournaments aren't the only association football/soccer tournaments around in Summer 2016.

Another year for the National Basketball Association.
The window is still open.
Lots of noise concerning Talbot this week. Latest I heard was they're trying to do Talbot/Klein for Hertl from San Jose. If they get him, would they need to keep Hagelin?
Personally I like Hags and hope he stays. I'd like to see them get a 1st round pick for Talbot since they don't have one.
Time for another season of the National Hockey League
Less than a year after World Cup 2014, qualifying for World Cup 2018 begins for some countries in Asia (AFC) and North and Central America and the Caribbean (CONCACAF) in March. On Thursday January 15, CONCACAF did the draw for the first two rounds of qualifying and here are the results:
1. Bermuda vs. Bahamas
2. British Virgin Islands vs. Dominica
3. Barbados vs. U.S. Virgin Islands
4. Turks and Caicos Islands vs. St. Kitts and Nevis
5. Nicaragua vs. Anguilla
6. Belize vs....
New season, New arena. And a tough opponent for the first regular season home game in Brooklyn.
