Now being reported his 13 year old daughter was killed in the crash too. Terrible.
Oh man. I hope this isn't true. I'm going to stop speculating until there is an official report. So damned sad.

Re: Kobe Bryant

I don’t get why helicopters crash in fog. Just take off and go straight upward til you clear the ceiling. Pacific coat fog is almost always ground based and no more than a couple hundred feet thick (guessing here). Plus this pilot probably was familiar with the terrain there. Just go straight up FFS.

Re: Kobe Bryant

Was just reading an accountant new LA Times about it. The initial reports are really disturbing. It sounds like this was completely avoidable. The chopper took off in heavy fog and the pilot ran into a hillside. Worse still, the crash caused a brush fire and the rescuers had to wait until the fireme...

Re: NFL Pick 'em pool 2017/18

Redskins, Cowboys, Eagles and Giants all hate each other. All traditional rivals. Not sure why Oklahoma, New Mexico and Arkansas hate the Eagles. Could be that Philadelphia is an absolute ****hole and their fans are louts, but who can say. Colts and Texans are in the same division now, so I guess th...

Is that map saying most of NY are either Jets or Bills fans? Surely that can’t be true.

Re: Newcastle United decline to comment on reported Saudi Arabia takeover talks non whu

I don’t know, but the idea of being bought by a dude who had a journalist cut into little pieces and disposed of who knows where for being critical of the royal family is a little distasteful to me. I know there are some rotten people who own football clubs around the world, but there won’t be many ...

Re: West Ham United v West Bromwich Albion: FAC4R Match Thread

If I were Diangana I would not want to return to this club. No one could develop in such a badly run negative environment. Same for Declan. He needs to leave before his career gets ruined.

Re: NFL Pick 'em pool 2017/18

GB have some work to do. 17-0 is not a safe score though.

Fumble and pick later and GB isn’t winning this game.

I really don’t like the 49ers but I’m glad Rodgers is getting thumped.

Re: NFL Pick 'em pool 2017/18

And their D line has been dominating. Vrabel and his coaches have devised excellent plans against both Pats and Ravens. Defense wins championships. I think that trope still may hold true i this age of no contact football. If they can get ahead and then spend the game handing off to Henry, they'v got...

Re: NFL Pick 'em pool 2017/18

Agreed. I'm just saying it would probably have been better for Cuenca's ticker if he didn't see the botched fake punt at all, although he's been a West Ham supporter since youth so I suppose he's used to such shenanigans.

I reckon the Niners will wipe the Pack off the map, and I’m taking the Titans to continue their upset run.

Re: NFL Pick 'em pool 2017/18

I think 2 video calls blew this game. 2nd Green Bay td wasn’t a td. He was short. And the 2rd down play after the 2 minute warning 3rd qtr was not a 1st down. Hometown calls.
