Week 11: Texas A&M falls. Clemson, Alabama, Michigan Rise

Week 11: Texas A&M falls. Clemson, Alabama, Michigan Rise

The AP Polls are an interesting concept. Think about the fact that Nebraska lost to Ohio State on Saturday Evening. Yet, when the polls came out, the Buckeyes hadn’t moved (Number 6). What does that tell you? It definitely says more than the college football championship lines.

Of course, one might wonder whether any of this even really matters. Because of their performance, or lack thereof, against Ohio state, Nebraska fell 12 spots in the college football rankings. Continue Reading

Can One Expect NFL Game in the China

Can One Expect NFL Game in the China

It is hard to believe that NFL game will be performed in China. But this is going to happen. It will be for the first time when the U. S. sports league will be played in the China. The game might not get much attention from the people. More importantly, the players will not be that comfortable to play a regular season in the China. As the result, you might not expect much from the NFL betting lines.

Now the teams are preparing for the game. They are focusing more on the work instead of discussing the playing environment. They are planning how they will come back from the China after the game and will prepare themselves for the next trip that might be more challenging. It will be difficult to play a more competitive game after coming back from China. Mark Waller, the vice president of the NFL, told in an interview, their focus is not more on the game in China.

Ever Wanted to Burn Your Money? Well Now You Can

Ever Wanted to Burn Your Money? Well Now You Can

Ever spent so much that it literally felt like you were burning money? While it’s never a good idea to spend more than you can afford, the idea of burning your money isn’t quite as bad as it used to be. Of course, we’re not saying that you should unfold a wad of dollar bills and casually set them alight, but if you did it wouldn’t be the end of the world.

Why, we hear you cry? Well, thanks to the wonders of the Internet, you can now pay for almost anything and everything without using physical cash. In fact, you don’t even need to use a government-controlled currency such as the US Dollar or Great British Pound if you don’t want to.

Modern technology has literally revolutionized the payment world in recent years and by far the biggest innovation is cryptocurrencies. Essentially a monetary system created by the Internet and for the Internet, cryptocurrencies aren’t subject to any government sanctions and are an extremely efficient way to pay online.

Glossy News Contributor Book Showcase 1: Swan Morrison’s ‘Judgement Day’

Glossy News Contributor Book Showcase 1: Swan Morrison’s ‘Judgement Day’

For the next three days, we are showcasing three ebooks, from three Glossy News writers! First of all, here is ‘Judgment Day’ by Swan Morrison. Aside from his various humorous ebooks, Swan Morrison runs the site Short Humour. ‘Judgment Day’ is his most successful book up to now, and recently won a Silver Prize for Humor/Comedy Fiction, Dan Poynter’s Global Ebook Awards.

This is a true story. To preserve confidentiality, however, all the characters, facts and circumstances have been changed.

When a meteorite destroyed a house in a sleepy, English village, no one could have predicted the chain of events that would lead Swan Morrison and Helen Hargreaves to romance and would ultimately propel them into an epic battle for the very survival of mankind.

How can one adequately describe a novel that is (in alphabetical order): an adventure filled; archaeological; comic; crime featuring; dramatic; erotic; espionage laced; horror tinged; political; religious; romantic; science fiction; supernatural thriller with philosophical, satirical and allegorical undertones?

This affectionate tribute to many classic storylines is where the writers of the Archers meet the creators of Indiana Jones meet Dan Brown meet John le Carré meet E. L. James meet Stephen King meet Isaac Asimov meet Barbara Cartland meet Harold Robbins meet Colin Dexter meet Ian Fleming meet Woody Allen meet Douglas Adams – to name just a very few.

Incorporating a diversity of themes and genres exceeding the works of Shakespeare, together with an exploration of the relationship between man and God that is comparable to the great religious texts – all skilfully woven into a breathtakingly complex plot – this ground-breaking, multi-genre masterpiece may yet be judged to be one of the finest works of literature ever written.

For more information on the book, including where to buy it, visit Brian’s website: Short Humour.

NFL’S Revised Injury Report Replaces Probable with Questionable

NFL’S Revised Injury Report Replaces Probable with Questionable

The NFL cannot win this year. Every step they have taken to make notable changes in the game has attracted repercussions of one form or another, many times distracting from conversations about NFL betting lines and odds, instead raising questions about the competence of those in charge.

There haven’t been nearly as many voices opposing the league’s decision to revise the injury report procedures, though; the revision has obviously reduced the number of players listed through the first two weeks of the season.

However, the number of listed players who have been classified as questionable has grown substantially. The game status report, which was released two days before kickoff, constituted 272 players who had been listed with injuries.

The 33 percent drop from 2015 is very notable, a direct result of the NFL’s decision to remove the probable’ category. The problem here is that 163 of those listed players (a 73 percent increase from the first two weeks of the 2015 season) have been designated as questionable.

In other words, these are 163 players who the NFL are uncertain will play in a game. You can see how this is skewing the figures and raising misconceptions when game data is analyzed. More than half of all the players (Three-Fourths to be exact) that have been designated as questionable’ have actually played in a game.

Week 2 was especially prevalent with so-called questionable players (79 percent); this is as opposed to 53 percent of questionable players appearing in a game within the same period in 2015.

Despite confusing a few analysts, the conundrum created here isn’t all bad, or rather this isn’t as problematic an issue as some people have suggested, primarily because it has removed the uncertainty.

Teams are more likely to declare players out; as such, people do not need to make guesses about the number of players who have been injured in any given week.

Along with revising injury report procedures, the league also introduced a doubtful’ category. People in this category are deemed as being unlikely’ to be in uniform. This category hasn’t been utilized as frequently.

Only seven percent of players have been listed as doubtful’ on the game status report. Not everyone pays attention to the injury report, primarily because they think it is a mundane and largely unnecessary obligation.

However, opposing teams and even fans spend lengthy portions of time pouring over such reports, this along with gamblers and participants in fantasy leagues. For such people, injury reports provide useful insight into the availability of players for specific games.

The NFL was driven to make changes to reporting procedures because the probable’ category was receiving very little use. The majority of probable’ players always ended up playing games they were expected to seat out.

The effectiveness of the NFL’s revised procedures cannot be measured extensively so early in the season, though; the first two games offer too small a sample size. If a coach is competitive enough, he will find ways of reducing the insight provided into his team.

So, it is difficult to determine how effective the new procedures will be in the long run, not when coaches are so determined to keep the minutiea of their rosters private.
