[OC] All-Time MLB Beer Team

2020.06.10 20:31 TheSpruce_Moose [OC] All-Time MLB Beer Team

I've been a Starting 9 listener since the first episode (coming over from Section 10), and I'm pumped that we have this forum now. I originally wrote up this post for /baseball, but it didn't gain a lot of traction. I know that we're just now feeling out what the S9 subreddit will be like, but I felt like this kind of OC post would be more up this crowd's alley. If this breaks the rules or isn't fun, feel free to shoot me down, but given how little we have to work with right now baseball-wise, I figured it was worth it.
Baseball, America’s game, has always been synonymous with beer. Many ballparks are still named after beer companies, many teams were founded purely as a way for the townspeople to drink beer, and everyone likes to enjoy a nice brew at the ballpark (depending on the affordability of said brews at your hometown park). Given that we currently have an abundance of time and a dearth of baseball, I bring to you the MLB All-Time Beer Team.
My Process: Haphazard and not exhaustive. I tried to select the most beer-y player at each position based on an undisclosed litany of criteria (my incredibly flawed background knowledge). This was not a scientific process, and I welcome any additions to this roster! Player value was not considered, but player prominence was, so there is certainly a correlation (causation?! we'll get to that) between achievement and popular association with beer. Some positions had much more beer association than others, which resulted in more competition that required some snubs at particular roster spots--for example, pitchers and outfielders are overwhelmingly beer-y compared to middle infielders and catchers. I didn't provide honorable mentions--please do in the comments. For each player, I have provided my rationale for their appearance on this list, the strength of their association with beer on a scale of 1-5 cans, and the player’s metaphorical Spirit Beer (it is this final category that I welcome much additional conjecture and debate).
Position Players:
Five-Man Rotation:
Relief Pitcher:
Player by player, here are all of the advanced metrics that went into the formulation of this all-time beer roster.
First Base: Seth Beer
Second Base: Whit Merrifield
Third Base: Wade Boggs
Shortstop: Alex Rodriguez
Catcher: Ivan Rodriguez
Outfield: Bud Weiser
Outfield: Babe Ruth
Outfield: Darryl Strawberry
SP: Josh Beckett, Jon Lester, John Lackey
SP: Aaron Nola
SP: David Wells
RP: Pat Light
This team turned out to be littered with all-time greats, which tells us one of two things: Either beer is rightfully synonymous with baseball, or we only hear the stories about the good players who drink a lot of beer.
Or maybe, just maybe, a lot of beer makes you better at baseball.

Critic Reviews

Area Xbox - Kevin Arbelo - Spanish - 6 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons is the new game of Mojang and Double Eleven. This new game brings the Minecraft franchise to the universe of dungeons crawler
Areajugones - Víctor Rodríguez - Spanish - 5.5 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons is a game that doesn't live up to expectations. Despite being funny, it's way too small and unpolished to be the next game in the Minecraft series. Playing through the whole game leaves us with the feeling that this is just a prototype rather than the full ARPG game that fans were expecting.
Ars Technica - Sam Machkovech - Unscored
It's priced right for a clever, family-friendly alternative to Diablo. If you're looking for a new co-op game, buy.
AusGamers - Kosta Andreadis - 6 / 10
An entry level take on a well-worn genre that after a few hours will have you heading for the exit.
COGconnected - James Paley - 75 / 100
Minecraft Dungeons isn’t the finest ARPG I’ve ever picked up, but it’s a terrific first step in your journey.
Cerealkillerz - Manuel Barthes - German - 8.1 / 10
Despite being just a spin-off, Minecraft Dungeons doesn't need to hide behind its big brother. With great Dungeon Crawler elements you fight through a hero story with a lot of charm. The low entry price also lets you forget about some of the shortcomings of the game.
Cheat Code Central - Lucas White - 4 / 5
Minecraft Dungeons won’t do much for you if you’re looking for a new, true blue dungeon crawler. But if you have a little one to tag along on your expeditions, this is an accessible, cheerful, and polished romp perfect for extra bonding time.
Destructoid - Chris Carter - 8 / 10
Although Minecraft Dungeons might not have the depth that a lot of hardcore dungeon crawler fans are looking for, it's an easy game to pick up and play at pretty much any point: solo or otherwise. Minecraft has proven itself to be quite the enduring and endearing IP over the past decade, and Dungeons is now partially responsible for that legacy.
DualShockers - Michael Ruiz - 8 / 10
Diablo for all ages.
Echo Boomer - David Fialho - Portuguese - Liked
More action, less construction, all fun. At least until things get a little repetitive.
Eurogamer - Tom Phillips - No Recommendation / Blank
You can build anything in Minecraft, something this fun dungeon-crawler from Mojang ably proves.
GRYOnline.pl - Patryk Manelski - Polish - 7.5 / 10
Minecraft: Dungeons stole 10 hours of my life, but it only took half of that to finish the game. When the difficulty level rises and Creepers multiply, the game becomes very enjoyable. However, to truly appreciate this game, you have to play it with someone. If you have a trusty team and love pixels – the game will be worth your time.
Game Informer - Jeff Cork - 7 / 10
The first few hours are a treat, and the late game has a nice element of experimentation. Unfortunately, its flaws balloon during the lengthy middle stretch.
GameSkinny - Jason D'Aprile - 7 / 10 stars
Minecraft Dungeons offers a very Diablo-like dungeon-crawling experience without the gore and grimdark atmosphere.
GameSpew - Kim Snaith - 8 / 10
Considering the game’s asking price, Minecraft Dungeons should be a must-buy for anyone who enjoys a good dungeon-crawling adventure.
GameSpot - Steve Watts - 7 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons is a welcoming dungeon-crawler entry point for newcomers and a lighthearted throwback for veterans.
Gameblog - Gianni Molinaro - French - 7 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons can be considered as a good way, for kids, to try a dungeon-crawler. Very cute, very simple, efficient, that game just lacks some depth and tasks that would urge players to keep on playing after finishing the, quite short, main campaign.
Gamerheadquarters - Jason Stettner - 8.5 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons is a great dungeon crawling experience offering lots of replayability, and many unique touches that stay true to the franchise.
Gamers Heroes - Blaine Smith - 80 / 100
Minecraft Dungeons is a dungeon-crawling adventure that promises a lot of fun for gamers young and old alike. While its replay value may wane with time, a constantly growing progression system and its various difficulty settings offer a lot for those less affected by the repetition.
GamesRadar+ - Alex Avard - 3.5 / 5 stars
Mojang's smartly streamlined dungeon crawler makes for a more accessible alternative in the action RPG space.
GamingBolt - Matt Bianucci - 8 / 10
Despite a shallow loot system, Minecraft Dungeons crafts an enjoyable and relaxing dungeon crawling experience that offers something for both fans of the series and fans of the genre.
God is a Geek - Mick Fraser - 6.5 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons has heaps of potential, and in a year's time it may be a very different beast. But right now I can't shake the notion that this is a squandered opportunity.
GotGame - Josh Boykin - 7.5 / 10
Even with these issues though, I enjoy Minecraft Dungeons. I’ll likely put more time in with it between playing heavier, story-based titles, but I’m compelled by its gameplay. The combat is fun and light, and perhaps the Apocalypse Mode will carry more of the awesome loot I seek. Also, at a $20 price point, it has plenty of action for the entry cost.
Guardian - Keith Stuart - 4 / 5 stars
This retro-tinged hack-and-slash spinoff has plenty of Mojang character and humour
Hardcore Gamer - James Cunningham - 3.5 / 5
Minecraft Dungeons is a capable all-ages dungeon crawl that, while doesn't use its license to anything like its full potential (see Dragon Quest Builders 2 for how to do it right), is still good fun once it gets moving.
IGN - Seth G. Macy - 7 / 10
Simple and fun to play, Minecraft Dungeons is a good entry-level dungeon crawler, but it doesn't dig too deep.
IGN Italy - Italian - 7 / 10
It's funny, engaging and, at times, surprisingly challenging: Minecraft Dungeons only lacks a bit of depth in the end-game area, and we hope to see that added in the next months.
Impulsegamer - Andrew Bistak - 3.8 / 5 stars
Minecraft Dungeons is the perfect distraction and while it doesn't offer much in terms of originality, it's an enjoyable block… err… hack 'n slash game set the wonderful backdrop of Minecraft in this family friendly version of Diablo with good gameplay, graphics and audio to help get you lost in pure entertainment. It's also a game that is played better with friends so if you need some mindless entertainment, check out Minecraft Dungeons!
Marooners' Rock - Andrew Peggs - 8.7 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons may only take a few hours to beat if you’re set on grinding the levels on solo play. The local and online co-op play is where replay value is added. Minecraft Dungeons is a must-have addition to your game collection and great for the whole family.
Metro GameCentral - 7 / 10
A modern day alternative to Gauntlet, whose innate shallowness and overreliance on random generation is balanced out by some fun combat and great co-op action.
New Game Network - Alex Varankou - 70 / 100
Minecraft Dungeons is a straightforward action RPG spinoff that doesn't try to be anything more than an accessible entry for existing fans of the franchise. The low asking price helps offset the areas where the game comes up short.
Nintendo Enthusiast - Steven Rollins - 8 / 10
All in all, Minecraft Dungeons is a lot fun. Coming from more of a Diablo background, I wasn't sure how well the simplified mechanics would jive with me, but I was pleasantly surprised. Everything about Minecraft Dungeons, from the enemies to the environments to the increased emphasis on higher-quality items, oozes a charming Minecraft feel. A few minor performance issues hold it back slightly, but not enough to keep me from coming back for a lot more.
NintendoWorldReport - Neal Ronaghan - 7 / 10
While the overall brevity and lesser level diversity is disheartening, Minecraft Dungeons is an enjoyable experience. It's much harder to recommend as a solo player, but if you're able to hang out on the couch and knock out some creepers with a pal or head online and smash up mobs with a buddy, the weaker elements can wash away. I had a good time playing Minecraft Dungeons. I just wish there was a little more to it.
PC Gamer - Rachel Watts - 75 / 100
Minecraft Dungeons is a breezy dungeon crawler that reproduces Minecraft's playful attitude.
PC Invasion - Jason Rodriguez - 8 / 10
Even though the campaign might be short and the mechanics a tad bit shallow for an ARPG, Minecraft Dungeons still manages to dazzle at times with its unique charm. With online and local/couch co-op multiplayer, you can have a blast and enjoy your romps with this family-friendly offering.
PCGamesN - Ben Maxwell - 7 / 10
A stripped down Diablo that oozes charm and loot variety but is probably better suited to a younger audience.
Polygon - Ben Kuchera - Unscored
Microsoft and Mojang have created a game where you’re hitting endless minions and boss characters with all sorts of pointy weapons, but they did so in such a way that playing still feels creative, and freeing. That’s a very welcome magic trick from a series trying something this new, this confidently.
PowerUp! - Leo Stevenson - 9.3 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons is a must-play and uniquely perfect game for the strange times we find ourselves in.
Press Start - Ewan Roxburgh - 7.5 / 10
Bar a rather unexciting story, a little lack of nuance in the combat and a couple of misgiving regarding couch co-op, there is a hell of a lot to love and enjoy about Minecraft Dungeons. Rather miraculously, it's managed to pull off being both a game for all types of Minecraft fans and those seeking a challenging dungeon crawler. At launch, it's a little concise sure, but chasing that new loot means I'm not done with it yet, and likely won't be for a while still.
RPG Site - George Foster - 8 / 10
That’s Minecraft Dungeons in a nutshell though - what’s here is mostly fantastic, but what’s missing feels like it could have pushed it beyond greatness.
Rock, Paper, Shotgun - Nate Crowley - Unscored
It’s a robust piece of design that you could well consider a triumph, given just how many ways in which the concept of an ARPG based on a construction game phenomenon could have ended in disaster. And I’m confident in recommending it as worth its price to even the most jaded click-stabber, especially one with even a passing familiarity with Minecraft. But the fact it’s been executed so competently leaves me wishing the developers had been a bit more reckless, frankly.
Shacknews - Ozzie Mejia - 7 / 10
But, while the core Minecraft experience can be enjoyed alone, Minecraft Dungeons feels much more suited for a night with friends. So be sure to link up with a few partners, because it's dangerous to go alone.
Skill Up - Ralph Panebianco - Unscored
Minecraft Dungeons is...not great.
Spaziogames - Paolo Sirio - Italian - 7 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons is a fresh and fast-paced dungeon crawler experience, even though a little too tiny to appeal on the long run
Stevivor - Steve Wright - 6.5 / 10
We basically decided we’d keep playing through the three major difficulties, but really because it seems like some easy gamerscore rather than an activity we’re invested in.
TechRaptor - Austin Suther - 7.5 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons is a casual ARPG that's perfect for fans of the series. Although it has pretty visuals and a challenging late-game difficulty, the loot variety is disappointing and the game's overall replay value doesn't seem high.
The Games Machine - Daniele Dolce - Italian - 6.8 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons is a good entry point into the world of the hack & slash games tailored for a younger audience. Too bad the loot system is abysmal and there's no endgame whatsoever.
TheSixthAxis - Dominic Leighton - 8 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons could easily have been "My First Dungeon Crawler", but it's so much more than that. It does a great job of taking the genre's hooks – the waves of enemies, the pervasive drive for better loot – and making them palatable and approachable for a wide-ranging audience. It's perfect family gaming, but if you crank the difficulty up prepare for an epic beatdown, and the epic rewards to go with them.
TrueAchievements - Sean Carey - 4 / 5 stars
Minecraft Dungeons is a superb dungeon crawler with something for players of all ages.
TrustedReviews - Jade King - 3.5 / 5 stars
Minecraft Dungeons is a solid dungeon crawler that will work wonders with younger audiences taking their first step into the genre, although will leave experienced players wanting something more significant.
Twinfinite - Chris Jecks - 3.5 / 5
Minecraft Dungeons is undoubtedly entertaining, and despite all my gripes I find myself being pulled back in, drawn to take on ever-more difficult challenges as I grind toward better gear.
USgamer - Mike Williams - 3.5 / 5 stars
Mojang spins up its own take on the Diablo dungeon crawling formula. While it looks like it might be "Baby's First Diablo," Minecraft Dungeons has a good degree of challenge available for you and three friends. It's more focused on lowering barriers by streamlining the acquisition of loot, instead of miring you in pages of stats. There's a decent tail of playability with three levels of difficulty, but you'll have to look to potential post-launch content for the length of experience some dungeon crawling fans crave.
VG247 - Jeremy Peel - 3 / 5 stars
Like Diablo, this is a game designed for multiple playthroughs on increasing difficulties, but few players will feel compelled to return to a seam that’s all dried up after a single day’s exploration.
Video Chums - A.J. Maciejewski - 7.3 / 10
It may not be as expansive or inspire as much creativity as its namesake may lead you to believe but Minecraft Dungeons is certainly a solid and enjoyable isometric action game with character progression that'll keep you hooked.
Wccftech - Rosh Kelly - 7.6 / 10
Minecraft Dungeons is a bright and colourful dungeon crawler, with interesting enemies and fast, frantic combat. It doesn't bring anything new to the genre, and takes away quite a lot of its complexities, leaving us with a simple, accessible, unremarkable yet still fun game.
WellPlayed - Jordan Garcia - 5 / 10
Though it does a great job at making the isometric ARPG formula more accessible, Minecraft Dungeons ultimately falls short due to its shallow nature
Windows Central - Jez Corden - 4.5 / 5 stars
Minecraft Dungeons meat is in its satisfying combat and complex character-building opportunities, and in that, the game delivers by the truckload.
Worth Playing - Adam Pavlacka - 6 / 10
There is a lot of potential in Minecraft Dungeons (and there is already DLC being advertised for it), but in its current state, it feels like a first draft. If you already have a Game Pass subscription, check it out for some easy achievements, but if you're looking to scratch that dungeon crawler itch, there are better options out there right now.

2020.05.21 08:36 Jonthough17 I work for a pharmaceutical company that conducts animal experiments. There are no accidents in AE Labs.

1
Twelve years ago, – and two into my marriage – I had an accident. An almost fatal blow to the head had left my frontal lobe damaged, more specifically Broca’s area. This impeded my ability to smoothly produce speech from my thoughts, an ailment which left me extremely frustrated in the first months of learning to deal with it.
Pairing that with the hideous scar inconspicuously hidden behind my right ear under my curly locks and the brutal headaches that seemed to bloom at the worst of times, my life had turned into a torturous hell. I would wake each morning screaming and in cold sweat, and every night just before I drift off into a peaceful slumber, the sharp pains in my head would yank the sleep abruptly away from my fatigued body.
This situation had also left me with a very short fuse. Everything seemed to set me off during that time, and I started to subconsciously blame the things around me for the pain I was in. It was unfortunate that Adam had to quietly bear the brunt of it, a task he did not ask for nor deserved.
Adam is… no, was my husband. We separated a year after the accident, and I quit my job as a doctor a month after, too depressed and lacking motivation to drag my restless body to work. Out of guilt, I solemnly confined myself within the cruel, uncaring walls of my home and, in that solitude, found a faint path to my mental and physical recovery.
When the scars of the accident faded into nothing more than a dull, aching memory, tossed aside to preserve my sanity, I willed my withering mind to search for its purpose to go on. That purpose came in the form of a job.
My first day as a doctor at AE Labs was traumatic to say the least. After witnessing a man writhing in absolute pain towards his death and having to fish his fresh corpse for whatever was killing him, some morbid part of me had decided to stay on the job and give it a second chance. Afterall, it had given me a new start in life, and I did not want to throw that away so quickly.
My first session with the company’s psychologist, Miles, was pushed forward. I guess they realized that I was not dealing with what happened very well, but I still hated that they did it without first consulting me. At least I had the day off.
I knocked gently on the door.
“Come in.”
Miles was at least a decade older than me and wore a goatee that must have reminded him of younger years. He was dressed professionally, though not stylishly, in a pastel beige suit. His posture demonstrated the years or experience and wisdom he had when dealing with patients, yet his eye betrayed him with their playful glint.
“Ah! Erin.” He called out in mock surprise.
I did not realize that we were already on a first name basis.
“Please, have a seat.”
He stood up to invite me into the sofa by his desk. He was a gentleman at least.
We got the pleasantries out of the way quickly and he got down to business.
“I am aware that you suffer from some sort of speech impediment. Would you like us to discuss that today? Or would you perhaps like to tackle the elephant in the room?”
“Let’s keep the speech stuff for another day.”
“Of course.” He flipped his notebook to another page, thoughtfully tapping it twice before continuing. “I have head about the incident from yesterday and I would, firstly, like you to know that I am here to listen to any problems or thoughts you might have. Not to worry, everything discussed here will be kept confidential and just between the both of us.”
I nodded, hesitating slightly. “I don’t feel good after what I saw yesterday. I think… messed up that I was told nothing about this until I have already moved here. I don’t even know if I want to stay on or not…” My voice trailed and he took the chance to fill the silence.
“Well, that can be discussed with HR. I am here right now to talk about your mental state, or to put more simply, your feelings. Maybe we can focus on what happened yesterday. You said you don’t feel good?” He pushed his glasses higher up his nose and regarded me with a gentle smile. If psychology school had somehow taught him how to act the trustworthy part, it was definitely working on me.
“That thing was disgusting. And I just can’t get… out of my head.” My words skipped, and I started to feel the old tic coming back to haunt me. From his raised eyebrows, Miles must have noticed it too. I calmed myself before I continued.
“It just isn’t right. You had to have seen it to understand what I mean.” I decided to leave out the part about how I had to wash myself for two whole hours in the shower before I felt some semblance of my usual cleanliness.
“That thing was an abomination, an invalid of nature. And I can only wonder what other sick experiments they have going on down there. You know what they do, don’t you?”
He shot me a guilty, yet sympathetic look. “Yes, I have some idea of what goes on in the labs.”
“How can you not feel disgusted working for a company like this?”
The smile he was showing me looked genuine, but his eyes told a different story. I could tell he fought his own battle on the inside. An itching dilemma that he had long chosen to ignore.
“I make do, Erin. You should too.”
“Why should I?”
“They pay well, that’s why. And if you really think about it, you aren’t breaking the Hippocratic Oath. The people you treat need your help and as long as you do your best, there should be no reason to beat yourself up over it.”
“But what if I am allowing them to carry out such experiments that will bring more harm then good in the future? What then?”
“All I can say, with full confidence, is that AE Labs exists for the betterment of humanity. You can’t see that now, obviously. But stay. Give it a chance. It might not be tomorrow, but maybe one day you will understand.”
Even though Miles was someone sent by the company to ‘treat’ me, I knew then that he was not lying. He seemed too earnest to have been. The company really was only doing what was best for humanity.
Or at least that was what he truly believed.

--

I returned to work the next day. Victoria made sure to drop by in the afternoon to check up on me. Without any patients, work here in the lab was actually pretty easy. It was all a matter of finding things to occupy my time. I started organizing the infirmary to how my previous consultation rooms used to look, placing the stethoscope beside the thermometer and Sphygmomanometer. I placed the surgical instrument into the drawers, hoping that I would not have to use them again so soon, but kept them close for I did not fully know what this job required of me.
The cleaning team that Mr. Rodriguez called the day before had done a good job of the place. There was, however, still a stain on my white swivel chair. It was the unmistakable rusty crimson shade of dried blood mixed into the wrinkled skin of the leather. I gagged a little as the memory flashed in my head. Mixing soap and hot water, I tried to clean the stain off with a sponge to no avail. Ruined, already. On my first day here.
I covered the spot with plastic tape to make sure I never had to touch it.

--

I decided to end the day by visiting Sophie at Lab G and apologizing for my outburst the other day. It still kind of irked me that she must have only came into the infirmary after she knew the danger was disposed of, but she was still one of my only friends here that I truly felt a connection to, and I was not going to give up on that so soon.
I made sure to leave the infirmary early so I did not miss her. With my doctor’s pass, I had access to all the labs except C, D, and E – the ‘secret’ ones as Victoria had so mysterious put it.
I tapped my ID card on the reader before it replied with two short beeps and a green light, giving me access to one of those horrendous laboratories. I feared what I was to find inside but soldiered on to look for Sophie.
Her desk was located far into Lab G, near the experimentation area, and she was snoozing away with her head on the table. I gently shook her from behind.
She jumped. “Wha… Who?” She rubbed her eyes furiously.
“It’s only me, Sophie.” I felt bad for startling her. Se looked up and I could tell she did not get much sleep the night before.
“Erin… Hi.” An awkward silence came over the both of us.
“I’m sorry. I overreacted a little over that incident and it wasn’t even really your fault. Let me get you dinner to make it up to you.” I offered.
“Erin,” she groaned, still in the process of waking up. She was clutching her head as if she was a bit of slight discomfort. Was she hungover?
“You okay, Soph?”
“Yeah… Just a little headache. I’m sure it will go away before long. And I’ll take a raincheck on that offer. Dinner sounds great, I’m just not sure I could survive going out tonight.” She tried to make it sound like she was joking but the pain she felt was showing very obviously on her face.
“How about breakfast tomorrow?”
“Yeah, sure. Let’s do that.” Her words were a little slurred. She opened her drawer and popped two pills into her mouth.
“Okay. See you tomorrow.” As I was turning to leave, I heard her call out.
“It isn’t your fault, Erin. I would freak out too if I were in your position. I’m the one who should be sorry.”
I was going to ask her what she was sorry for, but her head fell right back into her crossed arms on her desk. She must have been exhausted.
Maybe the incident affected her more than I knew.

--

Since it was a workday, I decided the best way to have breakfast together would be to prepare something from home and have it together at Sophie’s house. I waked early to cook and had the food all packed into a few containers.
When I arrived at Sophie’s house, I could hear the sizzling of an oily pan, and smell the fragrance of buttery eggs and baked beans. She wore a pink flowery apron to answer the door. One look at the containers I was carrying, and she quickly concluded that we both had the same idea. We burst into hearty laughter.
While she was still preparing the homemade mushroom soup, I sat on the kitchen counter and started unpacking what I had brought.
“If Vic and Josiah were here, it would be the perfect amount of food.” I concluded.
“Let’s call them over next time.” She chirped.
“How’s your headache? You seemed terrible yesterday.”
“It’s a little better now, but it normally is after a night’s rest.” She rubbed the side of her temples with one hand while stirring the soup with her other. “There, all done!”
She tried lifting the pot off the stove but seemed like she was having trouble. Her fingers barely had a proper grip around the handles.
“Do you need help?” I offered. Her skinny arms trembled, struggling desperately to keep the pot of soup off the ground.
“Huh? No, I’m fi-” Her legs gave way and she fell. The pot crashed on to the floor with a deafening clang. The soup inside made a suspenseful arc in the air before mostly splashing on to Sophie. She stared down at the mess on herself. In that moment’s pause, I could see the soup steaming from off her. Furious blister had already started to form on her exposed skin, reddening them to their extremities. These details marked the calm before the storm. She watched them rise with an eerie stoicism, then with her finger, delicately scooped some of the soup off her skin and into her waiting mouth.
“Mmm… Perfect.”
“What the hell, Soph! Are you okay?” I practically shouted in my mixture of shock and disgust.
“Yes, the soup tastes good. Great, actually! What could be wrong?” She took another scoop of the mushroom soup with a side serving of her own withered skin and savored it. With her tongue still wound tightly around her fingertips, she looked up at me with an unsettling innocence.
“Sophie, your skin!” I reached for her to try and pull her to the sink. I had to wash off the soup before the scalding got any worse. The heat from the soup still on her skin caused me to wince slightly. “Come on, we’ve got to wash it off quickly!”
I tugged her with one arm and used the other to turn on the tap. She refused to move. The pain should have had her screaming, but it was as if her brain had shut down to it all. And she was not exactly sane right now as well. I tried pulling harder to get her off the floor and, all at once, she jerked me in the opposite direction with an unexpected amount of force. I crashed on to the ground beside her. She stood up, towering over me.
“I didn’t want to do it, Erin. He made me. It would’ve been so much simpler if you weren’t there. You have to believe me, I never wanted to hurt you.”
I looked up at her in disbelief. What was she saying? That those creatures escaping was not an accident after all?
I was concerned and confused. Why was she admitting this now? I opened my mouth to speak but realized that now was not the best time. She was standing over me and reaching for something on the kitchen countertop that was out of sight to me. The sharp sounds of the knife unsheathing did not require much guessing on my part.
Sophie was not right in the head right now. I had to get away. I turned to get up and escape, choosing to head for the front door as that was the only path of exit, I was familiar with. As I got my running momentum, I felt her hands reach, brushing slightly into my hair. She gripped and I felt at least a bundle of hair rip ruthlessly from off my scalp. The pain was delayed from the adrenaline that started to take over my body.
I bolted for the door and reached for the handle. With a false sense of freedom, I pressed down on the handle with all my weight, ready to take in a breath of fresh air and scream for help.
The handle would not move.
I tried again and heard Sophie’s footsteps slowly creeping up from behind me.
“Looking for something?” She swung the keys from her ring finger, taunting my hopelessness.
The only path away from her at that moment was up the stairs. I took them 3 steps at a time, begging myself not to trip up now. I dared to glance behind only slightly and was met with her wide eyes and exaggerated smile. Her expression was frozen on her face, as if she had forced them on and had forgotten the other movements her face could make. She chased me with that demented glare.
I went into the master bedroom, locked, and bolted the door. I had to call for help. I reached into one pocket, then the other.
Nothing.
My phone was still sitting on the kitchen table. I cursed myself for my carelessness. I searched the room but there was nothing there that I could use to call for help. Then I noticed the view from out the window.
The doorknob twisted but the door stayed lock.
“Come out, Erin.”
I opened the window. The jump down would be fatal, and it was into the backyard. There was no guarantee I could escape from there after taking a fall from so high up.
BANG!
Sophie threw herself against the door, hard. Despite her petite frame, I suspected that the door would not hold for long.
“Erin, what are you doing? There’s nowhere to run.”
BANG!
The door rattle in its frame. It was started to bend at splinter at the knob.
“Help! Someone! Call for help!” I screamed desperately at the house facing the window.
BANG!
I covered my ears. Was this how it ended?
No. I was not going down without a fight. I searched the room for something I could use. There was a baseball bat lying hidden in the back of the cupboard. I held it at the ready.
BANG!
The lock was broken. The bolt was the only thing left that held the door closed. One final push and…
BANG!
The door burst open. Sophie’s face was twisted into mad grin, a crazed laughter escaped her throat.
“We don’t have to do this, Soph. Let’s get you help, okay?” I pleaded in my last attempt to placate her.
Her face darkened, her brows deepening into a furious glare.
“YOU THINK I NEED HELP? NOTHING IS GOING TO HELP ME!” She paused and let her expression soften as if in deep thought. “Well, except maybe killing you.”
She charged at me with the knife, a guttural scream to accompany her. I closed my eyes and swung.
The bat collided with her head in a sickening ‘thunk’ and she fell to the floor. Blood staring leaking from her forehead, staining the furry carpeted floor. Her fingers were still twitching a little. I dropped the bat and moved to get closer, hoping that I could still save her, but that was not necessary.
Her hands clenched into a fist and she pushed herself back into an upright position. She picked up the knife and started charging towards me again. I managed to hold on to her wrist and stop her from plunging the knife straight into me. Her strength was unnatural as she pushed me towards the floors, pressing her bodyweight on the knife to force it down. It sunk slightly into my chest.
“Without you, they can’t keep the experiments going! They won’t have enough resources for another doctor. I’m sorry that it has come to this.”
I let out an agonizing cry as the tip parted my skin and buried itself deeper inside.
Then, a shot and the ceaseless ringing that followed.
Her face was gone. Burst into a crimson firework above my head.
Sophie’s body went limp. I pushed it and the knife off, then looked up to see a man dressed in a security uniform with his shotgun trained at me. I instinctually put both my hands up.
“You’re alright now, Ma’am.” He lowered he gun and offered a hand to help me up. I took it.
“The name’s Jon, I got a call about a commotion in this building. Glad to see that you’re alright.”
I spat out some of the blood that got into my mouth. “Th… Tha…” The words would not form. I let my speech fail me and just scratched my cheeks.
“Come, let’s get you out of here.” Jon gestured to the door. He dusted something from his uniform and scratched the underside of his neck. Watching him gave me the urge to scratch my own neck… and face. Then, I noticed an unbearable itch. I brushed my hands across my face and felt a few granules collect on my palms. I took a closer look. Worms.
I ran into the toilet and quickly washed my face. I investigated the mirror and saw that one last one was vigorously trying to crawl its way up my left nostril. I blew my nose and it fell out.
“You doing okay?” Jon was standing in the doorway. He shot me a look of concern, then started clawing furiously at his face, leaving red lines across his nose and cheeks. And as if he could take it no longer, he slapped himself. “Shit…” He kept brushing, trying to remove the things from off his face. “What are these?” He held out one finger with two of the worms wriggling helplessly on top.
He scratched his hair, his nose, then behind his ears, then inside his ears.
“Shit… Shit! It’s inside! My ear, I can hear it inside.” He started slapping his ear out of desperation, unsure of what to do. His screams echoed throughout the house as he ran to the bathroom and tried pouring water into his ear. “It’s going deeper!” He started crying, in pain and hopelessness.
I started running out of the house and heard him calling for me from behind. I would like to think I ran because I thought that there was nothing that I could do for him.
But the truth is much simpler. Much uglier. I ran because I was scared.
There might have been something that I could have done for him, or at least something to ease the pain, but I was a coward of a doctor, only invested in my own survival. I ignored his pleas for help, for a way out of his suffering, and ran.
His partner was on his way up the stairs. He tried to stop me. “Hey! What’s going on inside?”
“He… The…” My mouth refused to form the words. But I did not have to. The house was silenced with the sound of a single gunshot.
I knew at once what had happened. With a hand tugging weakly at his partner’s elbow, I tried explaining that it was not safe to go in there. That I will call a containment team to take care of the situation. That his partner was already dead.
Killed himself before the pain became unbearable.

--

Everyone reacted differently to the worms, they told me. And I was lucky that none of them managed to enter my head. Sophie was one of the few who became aggressive when faced with the pain the worms dealt. She chose to live in that pain rather than simply off herself. She had a remarkable will to survive.
Jon’s partner did not heed my advice. He went bursting into the room and cried over his partner’s body, against my better judgement. Not long after, he started itching too.
The containment team told me that it was a leakage in one of the experimental gas high pressure unit. The eggs of those worms were small and floated along with the fumes like dust in the wind. They usually died out before enough of them could amass in a single organism and survive together. But because Sophie was seated so close to the leakage from the experimentation area, they grew and flourished inside her, first manifesting themselves as a headache, then something more.
Jon’s partner was sent to an off-site facility where they would conduct a proper brain surgery on him to remove those things. His family would be with him which helped put my mind at ease a little. At least if he was dying, he was dying on the company of those he loved.
They released a statement the day after stating that the whole thing was just an unfortunate incident. Mr. Rodriguez came up and spoke about it to all the employees during their lunch breaks.
His eyes were watering when he spoke. The loss of a beloved member of our family, he claimed. Many wept with him, but I knew the truth. This place is too careful to let this happen.
There are no accidents in AE Labs.

2020.01.23 20:36 Willster328 Deep Dive Analysis: Mastermind Xon

Yesterday I posted a thread asking what members of the community may one to see and one of the answers that piqued my interest and had some feed back was an in-depth analysis of Mastermind Xon. It's genuinely tough to get into the numbers behind him, because the numbers are so reliant on how you use him ("Obviously dude, that's why we're reading your thread") but what I want to focus on here more is the potential synergies to be had. And in order to do that, I first need to give a more in-depth breakdown of his Mirror abilities. So the format of this post will be as follows:
  1. An Outline of the Mirror Abilities
  2. Potential Character Synergies that I like
  3. A Full List of the Top Buffs that you can Steal

Outline of the Mirror Abilities

There's 5 Mirror Abilities total. 3 of them copy various applied buffs of an ally to himself, the 4th one copies applied buffs from your enemy to himself, and the 5th takes Xon's buffs he's accumulated and applies them party-wide. The 3 Mirror Abilities that copy your teammates applied buffs are as follows:
Survival Mirror - Copy some status effects for 3 turns from one ally to Xon
Boosts to LB gauge Fill Rate
Boosts to STatus Ailment Resistance
Boosts to Status Reduction Resistance, Stop, and Charm
HP and MP Restoration
Auto-Revive
Elemental Mirror - Copy some status effectos for 5 Tuns from one ally to Xon
Boosts Elemental Resistances
Elements Added to Physical Attack (Imbues)
Critical Mirror - Copy some status effects for 5 Turns from one ally to Xon
Boosts to ATK/DEF/MAG/SPR
Boosts to Physical and Magic Killers
-Copy some status effects for 2 turns from one ally to Xon-:
Boosts to LB Damage (This one is semi-irrelevent because it can't be transferred to teammates after)
This next Mirror Ability is the one that copies the Enemy’s Applied Buffs to Xon, the Buffs and ability are as follows:
Reciprocal Mirror - Copy some tatus effects for 3 Turns from 1 Enemy to Xon
Boosts to ATK/DEF/MAG/SPR
Boosts to Elemental Resistances
Boosts to LB Gauge Fill Rate
Boosts to Resistance to Status Ailments
Boosts to Status Reduction Resistance, Stop, and Charm
Boosts to Physical and Magical Killers
Elements Added to Physical Attack
HP and MP Restoration
Auto-Revive
And the final, 5th, Mirror is the one that takes whatever Buffs Xon has acquired so far and redistributes them to the entire party:
Projected Mirror - Copy some status effects for 4 Turns from Xon to Allies
[7 Turn Cooldown, Available on Turn 1]
Boosts to ATK/DEF/MAG/SPR
Boosts to Elemental Resistances
Boosts to LB Gauge Fill Rate
Boosts to Restance to Status Ailments
Boosts to Status Reduction Resistence, Stop, and Charm
Boosts to Physical and Magical Killers
Elements Added to Physical Attack (Imbues)
HP and MP Restoration
Auto-Revive
EDIT: MASSIVE ERROR: So there was a pretty massive error in my original writeup about how long the stolen Buffs last for. I was under the impression that when Xon copied the Buff, he also inherited the amount of turns left on it. That is not the case. When he steals a buff, it lasts for the duration of how long the Mirror says it will. So below, my original points about Regina's buff lasting 2 Turns, or Ardyn's 100% Elemental resist lasting 1 Turn are irrelevant to Xon, because those buffs last longer. I'll try to edit this document but there's a lot here so apologies if I miss it. I just wanted to explain that here in case you see a conflict of information below.
Xon has an ability to T-Cast these Mirror Abilities with his Reflector Ability. So essentially what you’d do to start this process is T-Cast: Two of the first four remaining Mirror Abilities depending on which Buffs are the ones you want to acquire the most, then Projected Mirror (Which for 4 Turns will copy Xon’s acquired buffs to his allies) For example, if you were looking for Stat Boosts and an AOE Imbue, you’d T-Cast Critical Mirror (Which applies stat boosts) and Elemental Mirror (which does the Imbue), then Projected Mirror to AOE the buffs. This is why you need to be so “creative” when using Xon, because it’s about optimizing not only how many buffs you want to acquire, but which ones specifically will help you against the boss.

Potential Character Synergies that I like

This part is entirely subjective, and really could use some constructive criticism in the comments because I’m just one person. But to me the best potential “synergies” that go with Xon are characters that not only have multiple buffs in their kit, but are also potentially good chaining partners. You have to figure, “Sure, I can buff my whole team, but they need to actually be able to put out damage in order to maximize the buffs”. The upside to Xon as a DPS is that he has strong on-demand chains with the popular chaining familes: Bolting Strike, Absolute Zero, Absolute Mirror of Equity, Aureole Ray, and Stardust Ray. His Innate Triple-Cast for offensive abilities is unlocked with his TMR or STMR equipped. So in my opinion, you’d probably want to start the battle of T-Casting the Mirrors alongside whatever applied buffs your party has, and then follow-up by having Xon chain with your buffed team. Aside from his DPS follow-up, IMO the most important “general” buffs that could be applied to your party would be Stat Buffs, Elemental Imbues, and Boosts to Elemental Resistances. My general thinking here is some of the other buffs (LB Gauge Fill Rate, Auto-Revive, HP/MP Restoration, etc) are really easily filled by many of the Healer classes. Obviously they’re useful for Xon to still try and copy/apply but I don’t think they’re as universally useful as something like Stat Buffs, Elemental Imbues, and Elemental Resistances which could free up your Character Gearing for other utility like additional killers or even just maximizing stats or tankiness. That being said, my favorite synergies with Mastermind Xon are:

Elena

Not only is she still a popular friend unit, but Elena’s self-buffs that can be applied are as follows:
Elena's Self-Buffs
Increase ATK/MAG by 250% for 3 Turns to Caster
Ice Self-Imbue
Lightning Self-Imbue
Water Self-Imbue
Light Self-Imbue
100% Charm Resist for 10 Turns
100% Stop Resist for 10 Turns
This is in addition to the 70% AOE Fire/Ice/Light/Dark Resists she can give the party on top of Xon’s Buffs. She also T-Casts Bolting Strike very easily which would synergize with Xon once the party-wide buffs are applied.

Regina

This is a bit more for really fast damage output, because Regina’s Self-Buffs only last 2 turns so you need to copy them quickly. But the Killers and Stat Buffs are no joke for 4+ turns. But in terms of self-buffs, Regina’s are as follows:
Regina's Self-Buffs
Increase ATK/DEF/MAG/SPR by 250% for 2 Turns
Increase Physical Damage against Demons by 150% for 2 Turns
Increase Physical Damage against Machines by 150% for 2 Turns
Increase Physical Damage against Faeries by 150% for 2 Turns
The potential to add AOE killers to your party could go a long way in terms of absolutely obliterating a boss within a turn or two. Probably not efficient for trials and whatnot, but some of the Weekly Events I could see this being a huge help. Don’t forget, although Regina doesn’t have any Imbues/Breaks in her kit, if you did bring another party member who had Breaks/Imbues then Xon could copy those Imbues into Regina and the rest of the party.

Ardyn

The buffs are there for sure, and so isn’t the DPS follow up in terms of chaining together. Ardyn’s Stardust Ray Chaining Family is one that goes well with Xon, and the T-Cast Rotation is easy enough to follow up on afterward. Ardyn’s Self-Buffs are as follows:
Ardyn Self-Buffs
Increase ATK/DEF/MAG/SPR by 250% for 3 Turns to caster
Increase Resistance to All Elements by 100% for 1 Turn
Self Imbue Fire
Self Imbue Dark
And so although the Resistance Buff is only for 1 Turn so you need to copy it quickly, I still think it’s helpful enough to be applied party-wide for 4 turns.. That being said the kicker here IMO is simply the 4-Stat 250% Buff that’d be applied party wide on top of the potential AOE Imbue for 2 Elements as well.

Levinson

This choice is very similar to Elena. His mult-element self imbue is incredibly versatile, on top of the fact that he also chains well with Bolting Strike and Aureole Ray. Levinson’s Self Buffs are:
Levinson's Self-Buffs
Increase ATK/MAG by 250% for 5 Turns
Fire Self-Imbue
Ice Self-Imbue
Wind Self Imbue
Earth Self Imbue
70% Elemental Resistance to Fire/Ice/Wind/Earth for 5 Turns

Crown Prince Noctis

Noctis on his own already does a ton of damage, and although he’s not a great chaining partner he has many self buffs that could have loads of utility. They are:
Crown Prince Noctis - Self Buffs
Increase ATK/DEF/MAG/SPR by 200% for 3 Turns
Increase resistance to Fire/Ice/Lightning by 80% for 2 Turns
Increase resistance to Dark by 80% for 2 Turns
Increase Physical/Magical Damage against Demons by 150% for 2 Turns
Increase Physical/Magical Damage against Humans by 150% for 2 Turns
Increase Physical/Magical Damage against Undead by 100% for 2 Turns
Increase Physical/Magical Damage against Faeries by 100% for 2 Turns

Full List of Top Buffs you can steal

There’s obviously many more character synergies. My hope is that in the next section, if you were to really study and look for character names that pop up many times you could piece together more niche situations for specific boss fights. In terms of Killers Crown Prince Noctis can Activate 4 different Killer types both Physical and Magical, there’s 38 different characters that self-imbue ATK for 250% or more, there’s 52 characters that have a LB Gauge Fill Rate buff, a total of 176 Self-Imbue options, and 30 people with Auto-Revive abilities.
You’re going to think I’m crazy for this part, but I’ve compiled a list of what I consider the “Top” Buffs below for you to see full lists of potential character variety.

LB Gauge Fill Rate

So… There’s 52 total characters that have LB Gauge Fill Rate buffs, that honestly I didn’t think were worth posting here. Like I mentioned earlier this is a pretty common buff in most Support/Healer kits, and the same with various other DPS and Tanks. If you all think this should be here I can re-edit the thread to include a table but it’s kind of obnoxious.

Imbues

And finally, the grand-daddy chart of them all: Physical Imbues. This data would be damn near impossible to try and put Turn Count in as well, so I figure if you’ve already come this far and desperately need to see which units have self-imbue (if you don’t already know that already from whatever rotations you’re already probably using) and are trying to form a party you can go and see how many turns your unit imbues themselves for.

What else does Xon have beside the Buff Synergies?

EDIT: I completely forgot to talk about the potential rest of his kit! So within the abilities that he can Chain Damage with, they have built in mechanics for 30% Status Ailments to enemies ranging from Poison, Disease, Blind, Paralyze, Sleep, Silence, Confuse, and Petrify. I don't think inflicting status ailments is really a big part of battle strategy, but then again, that's what utility is. It's the extra that comes with.
He also has a 2-Turn Cooldown that is a 70% AOE break which is... honestly nothing to sneeze at. King Edgar's LB AOE Break at 84% is still king by a wide margin, but you may not need that dedicated breaker if you're bringing MMXon along.
He also still has utility to steal items, and has a counter-attack (100%) that has a 50% life steal and a passive that increases item drop rate and gil drop rate by 100%. He's also got from what I can tell, 50% physical evasion. So not only is he a slippery thief, but that counter-attack will allow him to build health back up if he does get hit.

Conclusion

Is there a conclusion? Holy hell no wonder everybody is so confused about this unit there’s thousands of ways to synergize with various units. At the very least perhaps by seeing some of these names you can pick out units you already like very much because of how strong they are, and see if their self-buffs could apply with Xon’s help.
Similarly, perhaps there’s a boss you’re having trouble with, and it didn’t dawn on you that Mastermind Xon could be used in this way. When we look at Damage Calcs and whatnot it’s really hard to put in all this extra utility in order to properly rate him. My best advice would simply be to find a boss’ weakness, whether it be Type or Element, and see how you can best use Xon to apply party-wide buffs to strike that weakness hard. If you didn’t notice from the ATK Buff chart already there’s dozens and dozens of units that have plenty of Self-Buff ATK that could be applied.
Thanks for giving me something to work on today all, and hope you’ve gotten something out of this.

2019.08.06 16:57 Baslow_blade Strikers coming from the Championship & What to expect

This year the Premier League will feature an unprecedented 7 players who scored 20+ goals during the previous Championship season. I thought it would be interesting to see how Championship strikers usually perform when making the big step and what people can expect from a fantasy perspective. So I've looked back over the last 5 years to find other similar strikers and seen how they've fared.
The New Faces:
A summary of the players entering the league.
So what does History tell us?
Looking back over the past 5 seasons there have been 14 examples of players scoring 20+ goals in the Championship before playing Premier League football the next year they are:
(GP=Games Played, G=Goals, A=Assists, FP=Fantasy Points, PPG = Points per Game)
Matej Vydra
2017/18 GP = 40 G = 21 A = 4
2018/19 GP = 13 G = 1 A = 1 FP = 21 PPG = 1.6
Chris Wood
2016/17 GP = 44 G = 27 A = 4
2017/18 GP = 24 G = 10 A = 1 FP = 104 PPG = 4.3
Tammy Abraham
2016/17 GP = 41 G = 23 A = 4
2017/18 GP = 31 G = 5 A = 2 FP = 86 PPG = 2.8
Dwight Gayle
2016/17 GP = 32 G = 23 A = 2
2017/18 GP = 35 G = 6 A = 5 FP = 94 PPG = 2.7
Glenn Murray
2016/17 GP = 45 G = 23 A = 6
2017/18 GP = 35 G = 12 A = 0 FP = 111 PPG = 3.2
Andre Gray
2015/16 GP = 41 G = 23 A = 8
2016/17 GP = 32 G = 9 A = 3 FP = 108 PPG = 3.4
Abel Hernandez
2015/16 GP = 39 G = 20 A = 2
2016/17 GP = 24 G = 4 A = 3 FP = 72 PPG = 3.0
Troy Deeney
2014/15 GP = 42 G = 23 A = 10
2015/16 GP = 38 G = 13 A = 8 FP = 166 PPG = 4.4
Rudy Gestede
2014/15 GP = 39 G = 20 A = 4
2015/16 GP = 32 G = 5 A = 2 FP = 78 PPG = 2.4
Obion Ighalo
2014/15 GP = 35 G = 20 A = 4
2015/16 GP = 37 G = 16 A = 5 FP = 175 PPG = 4.7
Callum Wilson
2014/15 GP = 45 G = 20 A = 13
2015/16 GP = 13 G = 5 A = 0 FP = 46 PPG = 3.5
Danny Ings
2013/14 GP = 40 G = 21 A = 7
2014/15 GP = 35 G = 11 A = 4 FP = 139 PPG = 4.0
David Nugent
2013/14 GP = 46 G = 20 A = 12
2014/15 GP = 29 G = 5 A = 2 FP = 70 PPG = 2.4
Sam Vokes
2013/14 GP = 39 G = 20 A = 4
2014/15 GP = 15 G = 0 A = 0 FP = 19 PPG = 1.3
It doesn't make for particularly promising reading, and appears as though most players struggle to make the step up. Realistically, only Wood, Deeney, Ighalo and Ings would be viable fantasy starters, Murray, Gray, Hernandez and Wilson may have been decent bench strikers but all the others can only be classed as fantasy duds.
It's also worth noting that Ighalo was the only player whose price did not drop overall by the end of the season, meaning Championship strikers tend to enter the league overpriced.
Verdict
Avoid Championship strikers early, it would be too risky to start with anyone this unproven and the stats do not make gambling worth it, too high a risk for generally meager rewards. However. once teams have settled, figured their starting XI's and we have more of an idea how certain teams will fare, you never know where the next Ighalo will come from.
Edit: Formatting & Spelling (I actually prefer Jinemez)

2019.07.21 10:54 Nommynomnomss Summerween Celebration - Unit Review and Future Theorizing: Grayvwatch Star Lucius Hasselhov

'Sup
-- Fancy Font Preface --
The purpose of this post is to give a thorough overview of Lucius, the star of FFBE's hit series about Lifeguards who work on a haunted beach at midnight under an always full moon that conveniently gives enough light to see the half naked protagonists. Afterwards, we will discuss what could be done for him with enhancements in the future for Halloween.
Additionally, with the reveal of unit upgrades and what they may entail, this edition of Summerween Celebreation will be for all possible future changes, enhancements and upgrades.
The goal for his enhancements and upgrades section would simply be to increase his viability as a Physical DD, and to make him either less self-destructive or more rewarding when you take the risk.
These are fun for me, and I hope to have others comment their opinions and suggestions on possible enhancements or just thoughts on Luci. Of course, posting Lilith here almost felt like I posted in the wrong neighborhood. My fault for even including an arena specific enhancements joke in it (or even mentioning her name in a post about her).

I Love Lucius Lucius

Stats & TMRs:

Hp Mp Atk Def Mag Spr
4843 202 200 165 151 165
540+270 90+45 65+32 40+20 40+20 40+20
TMR - Chaotic Ferocity -
+30% Atk with Fist/Clothes 
STMR - Glorious Headpiece -
Hat - +52 Atk , +30% Atk with Fist , 3 LB per turn 
Equipable:
1 2 8 16 40 50 51 60
Luci has pretty decent stats for a damage dealer, a good spread for all the stats that matter. He has 7 less Atk than Light Warrior Bartz and 14 less Hp than Esther. His Def and Spr is closer to Esther's Mag stat, but let's just ignore that.
His TMR is a standard 60% Atk Materia with two requirements. With the arrival of a 4 star unit with a similar yet 70% Atk TMR, Gravey, and another coming with Physalis, Juraga, 5 star units' TMRs like this are a bit more than lackluster. On top of that, the dual requirement makes this a straight downgrade to Monk Sabin's TMR.
Glorious Headpiece lives up to the name. It is tied with Aileen's Scanner Goggles for second highest flat Atk on a head gear right behind Karlette's Red Hellebore at 60. Scanner Goggles has four killers which makes it monstrous when they apply, and like a sidegrade to Prishe's Hairpin when they don't due to the loss of Hp and Mp. Red Hellebore is Best in Slot for anyone who hits the stat caps for Mag and Atk since it's a hybrid headgear. What makes the headpiece so glorious isn't the +30% Atk with Fist -- which makes it best for any Fister -- but is the 3 LB fill per turn. Many D(amage)D(ealer)s units will want to use the LB's in the future, and many already do. The LB fill makes this best for anyone who doesn't want their own head gear or has guaranteed fill and isn't interested.
Lucius's equipment selection isn't the most diverse, but it's quite serviceable for what he needs. There are several good Fist weapons, including the powercrept Aigaion trial whose reward is still fantastic for fist users. He can equip axe which can obtain +30-40% Atk from Item world. Most notably, Lucius can use swords. This is important for the future event sword,エクスカリパー(FFV). エクスカリパー(FFV) is a 1-handed sword with +1 Atk, but it has x1.6~2 damage variance. With the new damage formula, this weapon is only outclassed by STMRs, which means it's absolutely fantastic for everyone who can utilize it. With the "(FFV)" in the name, I assume this will come around Bartz time.

Passives:

Here are Luci's skills. When we get to theorizing about enhancements and upgrades, you may refer to the skills here.
Name Effect
Demonic Brawl Dual Wield , +50% Atk with Fist , +200% Atk unnarmed
Berserker's Strength +30% Atk , +40% Crit Rate
Incubus's Charm 100% Blind , Sleep , Confuse , Charm resist
Fiendish Transformation 20% Phys Evade , Normal Attacks hit twice
Demonic Instincts +50% Demon , Human , Undead Killers
Final Moments +200% Atk when below 20% Hp
Demon Chemistry Chance to counter Phys (Max 1/Turn) and Mag (Max 1/Turn) with Demon Chemistry
Demon Chemistry -- ST 4x Phys , DR Frames
Bestial Rage +100% LB Fill Rate , +100% counter chance
Trust Ability Unholy Strength +30% Atk/Hp , +20% LB damage , +40% Dual Wield eqAtk
Dark Commandments Increase mod of Cleaving Barrage , Crushing Barrage (+2x), and Piercing Barrage (+1x)
Hp +20% Can be enhanced into an actual ability
Wicked Soul +20% Hp/Atk/Def/Spr , Ignore KO (80% chance) while above 50% once.
For stats, he gets +40% Hp, +20% Def/Spr, +30% Mp and 40% eqAtk when dualwielding with his trust, and +50% Atk to +190% Atk with his TMR, fist and clothes. Honestly, Lucius has pretty good stats. He may not be hitting Esther levels of bulk, but atleast our boy has some meat on his bones. He also has 20% pEvasion for some extra RNG on survivability, which is fun, right? If it doesn't work, he gets another chance with his resist fatal damage. More RNG, but way better for survival.
Luci has some good passives. Innate charm, blind, sleep, and confuse resist are all useful for a PhysDD, but he is lacking petrify and paralyze, which isn't the worst, since it gives him more protection than some other DDs. His counters can be fun since they can chain with ahem his sister, as well as Esther. If he wasn't DW, he'd be a solid choice to use with her. The human and demon killers are good since they're not too uncommon, but since external sources for those aren't hard to come by, and are done better by others, it is negligible. His undead killer is only his only notable one, but it only matters against Lich; while good, doesn't matter in the long run until there are more.

Active Abilities:

Now I will go over Luci's skills in an organized format.
LB - Sinister Fury -
Boost Atk by 250% for 3 turns , ST 11.1x-14x Damage 
Name Effect
Rupture ST 2.5x Damage , 60% Def Break
Frenzied Rush Random combo (3 times, 1.2x each) , +100% LB Fill Rate
Feral Charisma AOE Charm (10%)
Dusk Barrage ST 4x Phys , SELF Imbue Dark
Dawn Barrage ST 4x Phys , SELF Imbue Fire
Unjust Cause SELF Auto-Revive (1% Hp) , Recover Mp (150) , SELF damage (85% Hp)
Piercing Barrage ST 4.8x (2.4 w/ 50% ignore) Phys , Olive's Pod 153; R020: Mirage Chaining
Cleaving Barrage AOE 3.5x Phys
Crushing Barrage ST 5.2x Phys , Kingsglaive Chain
Immortal Demon [3 Turns CD , on Turn 3] SELF Auto-Revive (10% Hp) , Heal 10000 Hp , 100% Stat Break Resist
Blood Moon Barrage AOE 6.4x Phys Dark and Fire , Aureole Ray Chain
Aggressive Presence [5 Turn CD , on Turn 5] SELF 300% Atk , Recover Mp (300) , Fill LB (5-8) , Hp damage (95%) , Def/Spr Break
Y'all ever flex so hard you lose 95% of your own Hp. Luci does.
Lucius is a basic damage dealing chaining with dark and fire imbues. He doesn't even get his own imperils. His little unique niche is huge Atk buff he gives himself. Good joke I know. With every damage dealer getting 250% boost to themselves as standard, this hasn't aged well.
I've read from somewhere -- either Muspel, Memel0rd or someone else -- Lucius described as someone who wanted to make Queen v2.0, but didn't know what made her good. I agree, his suicidal tendencies are not only nonsensical and absolutely useless, but they are a danger to his health.

Other Damage Dealers

For this section, I will compare Lucius to other DW units who will be obtainable around the Halloween season (yes, I know it's called Autumn). I chose to compare him to the coming Lightning, Bartz, and our Zeno. Oh boy.
An other note: These are very light and don't have any math. Just know they don't favor Luci.

CG Lightning Flash of Lightning

Get it, 'cause her name is Lightning and lightning flashes. Hahaha #originaljoke
If you think a unit that uses other abilities to ramp up their other abilities is familiar, it's because this is the standard for most of the future PDDs on JP. This in an excuse for units to get super high mods. Esther was in fact a nice breath of fresh air, not due to the LB burst but for her LB spam. She also lightnings better since lightning is sudden and devastating.
Lightning is still good I(f)IR(ecall)C(orrectly). Her ramping up is harder since the modifier boosts are for less turns than the other units I'm comparing, but she should be around Esther's level of damage, so we'll be closing that gap soon enough. Maybe (If closing the gap with a GLOriginal unit counts). Litgirl also comes with breaks that only get to the standard 70% after a skill that is a 1 turn AOE 60% break on a 2 turn CD. This gives her an option to be a decent breaker and is okay utility.
Still more team utility than Lucius. To be T(o)B(e)H(onest), having an imperil made her a better unit than Lucius.

(CG) Light Warrior Bartz a Light Buttz

Bartz gets translated to Butts by Google sometimes so this is unoriginal
... having an imperil made her a better unit than Lucius.
His CD unlock's mod can literally go over 10 times any of Luci's mod(ifier)s.
Bartz's ramp up is also way better than Litgirl's since all of them are over 9000 turn buffs that won't be dispelled aside from his LB which is for 4 turns.
He can also imbue wind if you don't grab his STMR and can dispel, which can be very useful when you need to get rid of a buff and reapply breaks.
Oh! As a side note, everyone I mention here will be able to use エクスカリパー(FFV) since it's just a sword. It's only noteworthy to Lucius since he needs the help. Everyone here also has an STMR weapon, two of which are swords and the last is already at 400% Atk without it.

Zeno of the Beta Star Beta Male Zeno

That joke is probably unoriginal too
Zeno
... having an imperil ...
GL(obal)s current most powerful unit (written during maintenance, don't let us down ladies!), Zeno is incredibly easy to gear while still doing tons of damage.
He's dealing over ten times Luci's damage. He also gets Fingersnap, a reoccurring dispel for swordsmen.
Technically not dethroned for his position as top of our damage charts, but he's still way less bulky than the two girls behind him. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Future Damage Dealers

It's tru

Conclusion:

If you are a PDD who can imperil and/or have other forms of utility, you're better than Lucius. Luci isn't even as strong as Hyoh. This man needs some milk.

Enhancements and Upgrades

Let's give him some milk.
The goals are simply to give Lucius more power and to keep his risk and reward aspect while making it less risky and more rewarding.
To let you in on my thinking, I imagine Lucius as some sort of berserker with his Bestial Rage passive and Frenzied Rush ability names (I seriously didn't notice Berserker's Strength... How?). This has me thinking he should have much more survivability even at low health while dealing much more damage.

Trusts:

Chaotic Ferocity
Proposed additions
Increase equipment Atk when wielding two weapons 
What's more ferocious than more damage? The addition of eqAtk would only make it similar to Adam Jensen's TF29 Agent. A usable amount would be 30% so it's less than Sora's STMR in JP which should be updated when we get to Halloween. Since Luci is a seasonally limited unit, having a higher tier TMR compared to unlimited units seems sensible.
Glorious Headpiece
It's already glorious
Proposed changes
Increase flat Atk 
It's already glorious

Passives:

Demonic Brawl
Proposed additions
Add increase max chain modifier ; POSSIBLY increase % Atk , increase Dual Wield eqAtk 
The ability that gives him Dual Wield makes sense to be the one to get the Chain Cap increase that dual wielders get. the "POSSIBLE" is boosts to Atk and Equipment Atk that can be placed onto any of his passives.
Incubus's Strength
Proposed additions
add 100% Paralyze and Petrify resist 
Because I don't think Luci really wants to wear ribbons. This one isn't necessary, but is very convenient for when trials imperil resistances, and keeps you from need to sacrifice some DPS for protection. (I mean c'mon, he's an incubus, why would he care about going in with protection.)
Demonic Instincts
Proposed additions
Increase damage against Demon , Human , and Undead 
Simple one to increase his potency against the races he has killers for.
Final Moments
Proposed additions
Add Def/Spr increase , increase Atk Buff , Increase Hp to trigger SELF Buff , Increase turns in effect 
More reward, a little less risk. I think it's fine if it stays as his standard Atk buff when his CD and LB are not available. Feels bad that's it's a little less final moments, but with all the raising and reraising, when is his final moment truly? The Def and Spr was added so that he seems more like an undying berserker.
Demon Chemistry
Proposed changes
Increase Max counteTurn -> Physical Max 2/Turn , Magical Max 2/Turn 
This is for him to work better with his sister in trials while not bothering anyone anywhere else. It also makes him a perfect partner for counter chaining with Esther.
Wicked Soul
Proposed changes
Add boost to Mp , Increase boost to Hp/Atk/Def/Spr , reduce Hp needed to survive KO 
Changes to further bulk up Luci's stats. This is the milk. Everything else is protein.
HP +20%
I hope that they decide to Upgrade these units for Halloween instead of giving them enhancements, so that they can be saved for next time. For then, I'll propose this addition
Four Demonic Wings
Use abilities four times 
For FFBE 2020
I don't have any good idea for this if they decide to enahance him this Halloween.

Actives:

Now this first one is a bit quixotic, but I think it's a cool concept
LB -- Sinister Fury --
Proposed changes
Remove SELF Atk , Add Berserk Atk 
Berserk Atk
Additional increase to Atk 
To specify, it's an additional buff that stacks with normal Atk buffs. The idea is that he has massive amounts of Atk from his buffs, making his real shtick about having incredibly high Atk from buffs. Since this doesn't seem feasible for them to implement I have an other suggestion for his LB.
LB Take Two --
Proposed Additions
Increase Atk Buff, Increase Mod of ALL damage abilities 
A simple change that gives SGumex a reason to make Lucius a stronger unit. With his few abilities, I think it makes sense for this to be the only ability that increase mods, aside from his last CD skill and maybe Unjust Cause, but I like them both more as something to activate Final Moments.
Proposed new ability
Chaotic Tail
Allows abilities to be used twice 
AKA, dualcast. The name is based off of his sister's dual-cast. This allows him get set up much faster or get better at dealing damage. Since he's a dualwield unit, I don't think it's necessary for him to get triple-cast, but it's still nice for damage units to get dual-cast at minimum.
Frenzied Rush
Proposed changes
Increase damage Dealt , Increase hit count , Change frames -> EITHER Triple Spray Frames OR True Blade Charge 
With the promise of a future Rico, I think Luci could work incredibly well as a chain partner for him. Having him chain with 2B's LB-oriented build would also be quite nice as well; however, he would need to gain Graviton Cannon frames to be a good partner for her throughout the fight. Since he already has access to Octaslash chaining, he seems to be a much better partner for Rico who will be getting a 7 starTM.
Feral Charisma
Proposed addition
AOE Dispel 
This makes it a usable skill while being somewhat realistic. So charming he can make his foes forget all their troubles (breaks and imperils), but also make defenseless against such an enchanting man.
However, I also have a different idea for this so that he can work better with his sister.
Feral Charisma V2
Proposed addition
Increase chance to be targeted by 100% 
This would allow Lucius to be a viable evade provoke tank. This is more niche and has less usability overall, but it gives Lucius a good niche and would, again, make him work better with his sister since their counters would c-h-a-i-n (reminder that Luci's are S(ingle)T(arget)).
Dusk/Dawn Barrage
Proposed changes
Increase hit count , change frames ; POSSIBLY imperil Fire/Dark 
These would make him a much easier partner to use and greatly increase his D(amage)P(er)T(urn). Now for why I said "POSSIBLE", it's because I feel that Lucius is meant to be partnered with his sister who can provide imperils. Furthermore, based on their lore, it makes sense for her to be the one who weakens the enemy while Luci goes bapbapbapbapbapbapbapbapbapbapbapbapbapbapbabpabpabpabp. If we want to ignore lore, then these skills make the most sense to have the imperils.
Remembering what I just wrote for the comparison segment, I am definitely more in favor of him getting imperils.
Unjust Cause
Proposed changes
Reduce SELF Hp damage , increase Hp restored when Auto-Revived 
Please don't be suicidal Lucius. We're here for you. We love you.
Changes to self damage and to the Reraise heal to better keep him alive and coincide with his Final Moments buff.
Cleaving Barrage
Proposed chanages (this error made me laugh for some reason, I leave it for you all)
Increase damage , Increase Hit count , change frames -> EITHER Graviton Cannon , Absolute Mirror of Equity , Bolting Strike , OR Unspecified future Chain Family of Rico Rodriguez IF exists 
Making this a usable ability in trials would be quite nice. My preferences would be Graviton Cannon to properly be a chaining partner with 2B, the family Rico becomes a part of if he gets a new one, AMoE due to its high relevance of Fire-based units, or Bolting Strike since he is a Global Original unit.
Piercing/Crushing Barrage
Proposed changes
Increase damage 
Additionally, but only possibly if SGumex has no intention of expanding on their families;
Change frames 
To further reiterate, only if they have no intention on expanding on the family. I would greatly prefer for them to keep the families and provide more meta partners, however I would also like Lucius to have a lasting (lasting as long as DDs can) kit. My preferred families would be Bolting Strike, AAbsolute Mirror of Equity, or any new family they could be granting the future Rico.
Edit: I've only now seen that the wiki says Kingsglaive is a difficult family to chain, needing one frame delay or spark with multi-casts. This definitely makes it a higher priority to change.
Immortal Demon
Proposed Changes
 Self damage to Hp , Increase Hp restored when Auto-Revived , Increase Hp Healed 
Keeping the stat break of course. If something good wasn't mentioned in a proposition, assume it's still there. The Self-damage will allow you to trigger his Final Moments while the healing will make it seem as though nothing changed. Of course, adding buffs to this skill would produce the same result, but if the passive is there, it should be utilized.
Blood Moon Barrage
Proposed changes
Increase damage 
Yeah. To be TBH, I wouldn't mind if someone other than Esther got an AR chain that dealt good damage. This is also completely superior to Cleaving aside from the length of the attack and in some cases the elements. The number of hits on AR chains are also quite useful for getting LB crystals and Esper stones.
Aggressive Presence
Proposed Changes
Increase LB Fill , Reduce Hp damage , /IF Possible/ Increase Atk Buff , POSSIBLY Increase damage of ALL Abilities 
I still really like the Idea of him having massive amounts of Atk from buffs, it sounds like a fun gimmick to me. I also didn't get rid of the self break for 3 reason; A. It goes along his risk and reward style. B. It gives him some more reason to be partnered with his sister who has AOE stat break resist. 3. He already has stat break resist in his kit and my proposed changes makes it a standard part of his rotation to keep his stat buffs up.

Closing Thoughts

Lucius is not a strong unit at this point in time, but it's not that hard to see where they were going with his kit despite it being just as easy to see where it goes wrong. My hope is for Luci to gain a lot of power with future upgrades and enhancements while accentuating his style as a berserker.

Epilogue:

Whenever I accidentally hit the back button on my mouse, I want to [REDACTED]... I had to rewrite everything between "Luci has pretty decent" and the Passives section twice. (I just hit the back button and now I am rewriting the next few lines. What a fantastic straight line of fate.) I should probably do these in a google doc or something else. Unfortunately with my work ethic, I'd probably forget about it and not finish (though a desktop shortcut might be encouraging). I'm also using RES so that I can get the formatting right with minimal effort.
I still enjoyed doing this. Talking about a character I like in a video game I like is always fun, and I hope they do good for Lucius.
As for the ladies, though one isn't top-tier like we would hope, neither got me upset about them. I'm still waiting to see how strong people say she is with whatever her optimal rotation is since I haven't seen any math for her. Even though Elena stayed under our damage roof, I still think she's way better than Zeno since she's super bulky and Hybrid. She also come with her own BiS weapon. I'm not just saying this because I didn't get either of the other broken DD units but lucked out on Elen.
EDIT: I forgot to inform you of some very important and heart wrenching news. Fundamental Forces Bold Erections has cancelled Grayvwatch do to low ratings on season 1. Apparently, you could not actually see that much at night, even with the full moon.
If there are any mistakes or errors, let me know. If you have disagree about one of my ideas or have an even better one, share it.
Time to say goodbye I guess. Man, I can't believe I decide to watch that show instead of Devilman Crybaby.
So, as the Canadians say, "goodbye in Canadian, eh."

2019.07.19 14:00 MetalChick Big Sky Media Days: Or How I Stopped Worrying about the FBS and Learned to Love the FCS

By Emily Wegener
Spokane, WA - As my media days counterpart Cyclopher6971 summed up in his write-up of the Big Sky Media Days, they did things a little differently here. Instead of the coaches, A.D.s, and players taking the stage to answer questions lobbed at them like a Luke Falk Hail Mary, they sat at individual table stations around the room and you get the opportunity to talk with them individually or with people on your media team. Admittedly, this was a little intimidating because all attention is focused on you and the conversation you have with each team.
I partnered with Bylebog (who is my husband) as he is a photographer, which means he can snap photos while I focus on interviews. Cyclopher6971 and I decided to split the 13 teams to make it more manageable to research and prepare. The teams I chose were:
Cal PolyCal Poly Mustangs
Eastern WashingtonEastern Washington Eagles
Northern Arizona Northern Arizona Lumberjacks
Portland StatePortland State Vikings
Sacramento StateSacramento State Hornets
Southern UtahSouthern Utah Thunderbirds
Weber StateWeber State Wildcats
Overall, the experience was overwhelmingly positive, and the Big Sky Conference Officials and Team Staff members were friendly and easy to engage. There were quite a few media people there and I did not get a chance to sit down with everyone that was on my list to cover unfortunately. I tried to ask some non-football questions, especially of the players. They are asked a lot of football stuff and I wanted to find out more about who they are as people.
On the first night during dinner, Weber State was awarded the President’s Cup for 2018-2019 season for exceling both on and off the field.
Below is a photo of Big Sky Commissioner Tom Wistrcll presenting the trophy to Weber State A.D. Tim Crompton and players Rashid Shaheed and Jonah Williams:

Big Sky Preseason All-Conference Football Team:
Offense:
Defense:
Cal PolyCal Poly: I thought Coach Tim Walsh was the most fun, knowledgeable and easiest to talk to of the coaches I spoke to. I asked Coach Walsh how he celebrated 10 years of coaching and he said he was going to, “enjoy doing it! It’s a unique profession and keeps you young.” He was very passionate talking about his love for mentoring young men on his team and feels it’s rewarding to see them excel and be successful in their personal and professional lives. When asked about playing Oregon State for an out-of-conference opponent this year he said, “A lot of teams don’t want to play our offense” and they have to look for teams who are willing to meet them and that’s “usually Pac-12 teams.” I talked about their great turn around last year but asked how they planned to improve the 36.4 points per game they allowed in 2018 and Coach Walsh was extremely candid about issues. “We had 8 fumbles returned for touchdowns and that is disheartening to the defense. The offense has an obligation to the defense.” He said clear leaders on the team are Kitu Humphrey and Freddie Gaines. “Phenomenal leader and a team player.”
Cal Poly sent Kitu Humphrey and J.J. Koski to the event. I asked them both (inspired by Koski’s bio stating he likes helping the community) where their favorite place to volunteer are. Koski said it was a place called Growing Grounds. They sell plants and use that money to work with and help those with mental illness. Humphrey loves helping at the homeless shelter. Says it offers a lot of insight and he loves talking with people. Humphrey also raps in his spare time so I wanted to know which rapper has influenced him the most. “Nipsey Hussle (who recently was tragically killed). He raps about things that I experienced since he is from my neighborhood and he was helping the people there.” The question that made them laugh and light up had to do with who the best dancer on the team is. They said they do a dance competition every Friday and they agreed the best dancer is Joey Ruiz, who also does the Worm well.
Eastern WashingtonEastern Washington: I didn’t get a chance to talk to Coach Best or players Jayce Gilder and Dylan Ledbetter as they were consistently busy with cameras and other interviewers. But they were voted to win the Big Sky Football Title in the 2019 season after their 12-win season in 2018 and their trip to the NCAA Division I Football Championship in 2018 (ultimately losing the title to North Dakota State, aka the Alabama of FCS).
Northern Arizona Northern Arizona: Coach Chris Ball was interesting to interview as a newer Head Coach. I asked him about changing the culture at NAU in his first year. His steps were:
  1. Set a standard and hold them accountable
  2. Instill character on and off the field
  3. Work Ethic
  4. Toughness
  5. Be smart and not careless
  6. Talent and conditioning
I told him that I was sorry for the loss of Malik Noshi recently and asked if there were plans to memorialize him this season. Coach Ball said he was leaving the decision of exactly how to honor him to the team but they were planning on dedicating the entire season to his memory and may do patches with his uniform number among other things.
I asked him how the game with Arizona came about and he mentioned that he and Coach Sumlin were roommates under Mike Price from 1989-1990 while they were at Washington State University. He said that he's not thinking of that game yet because, “We’ve gotta face Missouri State first. Can’t put more emphasis on one team over another.” He also said they’ve got a lineup of QBs after losing Case Cookus last year to injury along with another backup. “We learned a lesson on being prepared.”
Portland StatePortland State: I did not get a chance to talk to Portland State's Coach Barnum or players Kenton Bartlett and Charlie Tamoepeau but they seem poised to improve again after their 4-7 2018 season, which was an improvement over their winless 2017 season. They will have a tough challenge in their out-of-conference opponent Arkansas this year.
Sacramento StateSacramento State: I didn’t get a chance to speak to Coach Troy Taylor but I did sit down with Kevin Thomson and Caelan Barnes. This was my favorite player interview because it turned into a moving discussion about a serious topic. I noticed that Thomson was wearing a Hilinski's Hope bracelet and I asked him and Barnes if suicide prevention/awareness was a cause they were passionate about. Thomson talked at length about how Washington State’s QB Tyler Hilinski’s death by suicide impacted him and made him realize that many football players hide their feelings and people view feeling depressed as a weakness. He likes to be a safe person for others to talk to and feels that, “Life is all about relationships.” He and Caelan said that they also do a suicide prevention and awareness walk every year on campus that the President of the University started after he had a child die by suicide.
Sacramento State will be playing Arizona State this year for out-of-conference play this year and it’ll be interesting to see how the team fairs with a 1st-year coach in Troy Taylor.
Southern UtahSouthern Utah: I also did not get to speak with Coach Demario Warren but I did sit down with players Zach Larsen and Jay Green Jr. They both said that they are most looking forward to facing Weber State this year because they feel they are one of the teams to beat in the conference. I asked if their fans travel well and how the crowd affects their play. Jay said, “Having people to support you gets you pumped.” So get out there and go to some FCS games because the players appreciate it!
Southern Utah plays UNLV out-of-conference and is coming off a tough 2018 season where they went 1-10.
Weber StateWeber State: Last but certainly not least, I interviewed Coach Jay Hill and asked about the key factors for potentially making it to the playoffs again in 2019 (for a 4th straight year). His answer was:
  1. Not turning the ball over
  2. Playing great defense
  3. Special teams
He was excited about the return of Kevin Smith who is back this year after being injured right before the 2018 season. He is looking forward to representing the Big Sky Conference against San Diego State and University of Nevada – Reno for out-of-conference matchups. I asked if we will see any changes to team mechanics this year and Coach Hill said, “Nope! The conference knows who we are and what we do. We’ll continue to play physical, in your face football, and make teams execute well to beat us.”
I didn’t get a chance to interview players Rashid Shaheed or Jonah Williams. Weber is a team to watch this year. Can they make it a 3rd straight season with 10+ wins?

Thanks for reading and supporting us in our media days coverage. Thank you to Bylebog and Cyclopher6971 for their help and partnership in covering the event. I hope more people will watch FCS football. I know this experience made me want to watch more of these amazing and talented teams play this upcoming season. It’s college football, so you can’t go wrong watching more games, right?

2019.06.25 17:47 Nommynomnomss Summerween Celebration - Unit Overview and Enhancement Theorizing: GrayvWatch Star Lucius Hasselhov

'Sup
-- Fancy Font Preface --
The purpose of this post is to give a thorough overview of Lucius, the star of FFBE's hit series about Lifeguards who work on a haunted beach at midnight under an always full moon that conveniently gives enough light to see the half naked protagonists. Afterwards, we will discuss what could be done for him with enhancements in the future for Halloween.
Additionally, with the reveal of unit upgrades and what they entail, this edition of Summerween Celebreation will be for all possible future changes, enhancements and upgrades.
The goal for his enhancements would simply be to increase his viability as a Physical DD, and to make him either less self-destructive or more rewarding when you take the risk.
These are fun for me, and I hope to have others comment their opinions and suggestions on possible enhancements or just thoughts on Luci. Of course, posting Lilith here almost felt like I posted in the wrong neighborhood. My fault for even including an arena specific enhancements joke in it (or even mentioning her name in a post about her).

I Love Lucius Lucius

Stats & TMRs:

Hp Mp Atk Def Mag Spr
4843 202 200 165 151 165
540 90 65 40 40 40
TMR - Chaotic Ferocity -
+30% Atk with Fist/Clothes 
STMR - Glorious Headpiece -
Hat - +52 Atk , +30% Atk with Fist , 3 LB per turn 
Equipable:
1 2 8 16 40 50 51 60
Luci has pretty decent stats for a damage dealer, a good spread for all the stats that matter. He has 7 less Atk than Light Warrior Bartz and 14 less Hp than Esther. His Def and Spr is closer to Esther's Mag stat, but let's just ignore that.
His TMR is a standard 60% Atk Materia with two requirements. With the arrival of a 4 star unit with a similar yet 70% Atk TMR, Gravey, and another coming with Physalis, Juraga, 5 star units' TMRs like this are a bit more than lackluster. On top of that, the dual requirement makes this a straight downgrade to Monk Sabin's TMR.
Glorious Headpiece lives up to the name. It is tied with Aileen's Scanner Goggles for second highest flat Atk on a head gear right behind Karlette's Red Hellebore at 60. Scanner Goggles has four killers which makes it monstrous when they apply, and like a sidegrade to Prishe's Hairpin when they don't due to the loss of Hp and Mp. Red Hellebore is Best in Slot for anyone who hits the stat caps for Mag and Atk since it's a hybrid headgear. What makes the headpiece so glorious isn't the +30% Atk with Fist -- which makes it best for any Fister -- but is the 3 LB fill per turn. Many DPS units will want to use the LB's in the future, and many already do. The LB fill makes this best for anyone who doesn't want their own head gear or has guaranteed fill and isn't interested.
Lucius's equipment selection isn't the most diverse, but it's quite serviceable for what he needs. There are several good Fist weapons, including the powercrept Aigaion trial whose reward is still fantastic for fist users. He can equip axe which can obtain +30-40% Atk from Item world. Most notably, Lucius can use swords. This is important for the future event sword,エクスカリパー(FFV). エクスカリパー(FFV) is a 1-handed sword with +1 Atk, but it has x1.6~2 damage variance. With the new damage formula, this weapon is only outclassed by STMRs, which means it's absolutely fantastic for everyone who can utilize it. With the "(FFV)" in the name, I assume this will come around Bartz time.

Passives:

Here are Luci's skills. When we get to theorizing about enhancements and upgrades, you may refer to the skills here.
Name Effect
Demonic Brawl Dual Wield , +50% Atk with Fist , +200% Atk unnarmed
Berserker's Strength +30% Atk , +40% Crit Rate
Incubus's Charm 100% Blind , Sleep , Confuse , Charm resist
Fiendish Transformation 20% Phys Evade , Normal Attacks hit twice
Demonic Instincts +50% Demon , Human , Undead Killers
Final Moments +200% Atk when below 20% Hp
Demon Chemistry Chance to counter Phys (Max 1/Turn) and Mag (Max 1/Turn) with Demon Chemistry
Demon Chemistry -- ST 4x Phys , DR Frames
Bestial Rage +100% LB Fill Rate , +100% counter chance
Trust Ability Unholy Strength +30% Atk/Hp , +20% LB damage , +40% Dual Wield eqAtk
Dark Commandments Increase mod of Cleaving Barrage , Crushing Barrage (+2x), and Piercing Barrage (+1x)
Hp +20% Can be enhanced into an actual ability
Wicked Soul +20% Hp/Atk/Def/Spr , Ignore KO (80% chance) while above 50% once.
For stats, he gets +40% Hp, +20% Def/Spr, +30% Mp and 40% eqAtk when dualwielding with his trust, and +50% Atk to +190% Atk with his TMR, fist and clothes. Honestly, Lucius has pretty good stats. He may not be hitting Esther levels of bulk, but atleast our boy has some meat on his bones. He also has 20% pEvasion for some extra RNG on survivability, which is fun, right? If it doesn't work, he gets another chance with his resist fatal damage. More RNG, but way better for survival.
Luci has some good passives. Innate charm, blind, sleep, and confuse resist, all useful for a PhysDD, but is lacking petrify and paralyze, which isn't the worst, since it gives him more protection than some other DDs. His counters can be fun since they can chain with ahem his sister, as well as Esther. If he wasn't DW, he'd be a solid choice to use with her. The human and demon killers are good since they're not too uncommon, but since external sources for those aren't hard to come by, and are done better by others, it is negligible. His undead killer is only his only notable one, but it only matters against Lich; while good, doesn't matter in the long run until there are more.

Abilities:

Now I will go over Luci's skills in an organized format.
LB - Sinister Fury -
Boost Atk by 250% for 3 turns , ST 11.1x-14x Damage 
Name Effect
Rupture ST 2.5x Damage , 60% Def Break
Frenzied Rush Random combo (3 times, 1.2x each) , +100% LB Fill Rate
Feral Charisma AOE Charm (10%)
Dusk Barrage ST 4x Phys , SELF Imbue Dark
Dawn Barrage ST 4x Phys , SELF Imbue Fire
Unjust Cause SELF Auto-Revive (1% Hp) , Recover Mp (150) , SELF damage (85% Hp)
Piercing Barrage ST 4.8x (2.4 w/ 50% ignore) Phys , Olive's Pod 153; R020: Mirage Chaining
Cleaving Barrage AOE 3.5x Phys
Crushing Barrage ST 5.2x Phys , Kingsglaive Chain
Immortal Demon [3 Turns CD , on Turn 3] SELF Auto-Revive (10% Hp) , Heal 10000 Hp , 100% Stat Break Resist
Blood Moon Barrage AOE 6.4x Phys Dark and Fire , Aureole Ray Chain
Aggressive Presence [5 Turn CD , on Turn 5] SELF 300% Atk , Recover Mp (300) , Fill LB (5-8) , Hp damage (95%) , Def/Spr Break
Y'all ever flex so hard you lose 95% of your own Hp. Luci does.
Lucius is a bare-bones damage dealer with dark and fire imbues. He doesn't even get his own imperils. His little unique niche is huge Atk buff he gives himself. Good joke I know. With every damage dealer getting 250% boost to themselves as standard, this hasn't aged well.
I've read from somewhere, either Muspel, Memel0rd or someone else, Lucius described as someone who wanted to make Queen v2.0, but didn't know what made her good. I agree, his suicidal tendencies are not only nonsensical, they are absolutely useless and are a danger to his health.

Other Damage Dealers

For this section, I will compare Lucius to other DW units who will be obtainable around the Halloween season (yes, I know it's called Autumn). I chose to compare him to the coming Lightning, Bartz, and our Zeno. Oh boy.
An other note: These are very light and don't have any math. Just know they don't favor Luci.

CG Lightning Flash of Lightning

Get it, 'cause her name is Lightning and lightning flashes. Hahaha #originaljoke
If you think a unit that uses other abilities to ramp up their other abilities is familiar, it's because this is the standard for most of the future P(hysical)D(amage)D(ealer)s on JP. This in an excuse for units to get super high mods. Esther was in fact a nice breath of fresh air. She also lightnings better since lightning is sudden and devastating.
Lightning is still good I(f)IR(ecall)C(orrectly). She should be around Esther's level of damage, so we'll be closing that gap soon enough. Maybe. Litgirl also comes with breaks that only get to the standard 70% after a skill that is a 1 turn AOE 60% break on a 2 turn CD. This gives her an option to be a decent breaker and is okay utility.
Still more team utility than Lucius. To be T(o)B(e)H(onest), having an imperil made her a better unit than Lucius.

(CG) Light Warrior Bartz a Light Buttz

Bartz gets translated to Butts by Google sometimes so this is unoriginal
... having an imperil made her a better unit than Lucius.
His CD can literally go over 10 times any of Luci's mod(ifier)s.
Bartz's ramp up is also way better than Litgirl's since all of them are over 9000 turn buffs that won't be dispelled aside from his LB which is for 4 turns.
He can also imbue wind if you don't grab his STMR and can dispel, which can be very useful when you need to get rid of a buff and reapply breaks.
Oh! As a side note, everyone I mention here will be able to use エクスカリパー(FFV) since it's just a sword. It's only noteworthy to Lucius since he needs the help.

Zeno of the Beta Star Beta Male Zeno

That joke is probably unoriginal too
Zeno
... having an imperil ...
GL(obal)s current most powerful unit (written during maintenance, make me eat these word ladies!), Zeno is incredibly easy to gear while still doing tons of damage.
He's dealing over ten times Luci's damage. He also gets Fingersnap, a reoccurring dispel for swordsmen.

Future Damage Dealers

It's tru

Conclusion:

If you are a PDD who can imperil and/or have other forms of utility, you're better than Lucius. Luci isn't even as strong as Hyoh. This man needs some milk.

Enhancements and Upgrades

Let's give him some milk.
The goals are simply to give Lucius more power and to keep his risk and reward aspect while making it less risky and more rewarding.
To let you in on my thinking, I imagine Lucius as some sort of berserker with his Bestial Rage passive and Frenzied Rush ability names (I seriously didn't notice Berserker's Strength... How?). This has me thinking he should have much more survivability even at low health while dealing much more damage.

Trusts:

Chaotic Ferocity
Proposed additions
Increase equipment Atk when wielding two weapons 
What's more ferocious than more damage? The addition of eqAtk would only make it similar to Adam Jensen's TF29 Agent. A usable amount would be 30% so it's less than Sora's STMR in JP which should be updated when we get to Halloween. Since Luci is a seasonally limited unit, having a higher tier TMR compared to unlimited units seems sensible.
Glorious Headpiece
It's already glorious
Proposed changes
Increase flat Atk 
It's already glorious

Passive:

Demonic Brawl
Proposed additions
Add increase max chain modifier ; POSSIBLY increase % Atk , increase Dual Wield eqAtk 
The ability that gives him Dual Wield makes sense to be the one to get the Chain Cap increase that dual wielders get. the "POSSIBLE" is boosts to Atk and Equipment Atk that can be placed onto any of his passives.
Incubus's Strength
Proposed additions
add 100% Paralyze and Petrify resist 
Because I don't think Luci really wants to wear ribbons. This one isn't necessary, but is very convenient for when trials imperil resistances, and keeps you from need to sacrifice some DPS for protection. (I mean c'mon, he's an incubus, why would he care about going in with protection.)
Demonic Instincts
Proposed additions
Increase damage against Demon , Human , and Undead 
Simple one to increase his potency against the races he has killers for.
Final Moments
Proposed additions
Add Def/Spr increase , increase Atk Buff , Increase Hp to trigger SELF Buff , Increase turns in effect 
More reward, a little less risk. I think it's fine if it stays as his standard Atk buff when his CD and LB are not available. Feels bad that's it's a little less final moments, but with all the raising and reraising, when is his final moment truly? The Def and Spr was added so that he seems more like an undying berserker.
Demon Chemistry
Proposed changes
Increase Max counteTurn --> Physical Max 2/Turn , Magical Max 2/Turn 
This is for him to work better with his sister in trials while not bothering anyone anywhere else. It also makes him a perfect partner for counter chaining with Esther.
Wicked Soul
Proposed changes
Add boost to Mp , Increase boost to Hp/Atk/Def/Spr , reduce Hp needed to survive KO 
Changes to further bulk up Luci's stats. This is the milk. Everything else is protein.
HP +20%
I hope that they decide to Upgrade these units for Halloween instead of giving them enhancements, so that they can be saved for next time. For then, I'll propose this addition
Four Demonic Wings
Use abilities four times 
For FFBE 2020
I don't have any good idea for this if they decide to enahance him this Halloween.

Abilities:

Now this first one is a bit Quixotic, but I think it's a cool concept
LB -- Sinister Fury --
Proposed changes
Remove SELF Atk , Add Berserk Atk 
Berserk Atk
Additional increase to Atk 
The idea is that he has massive amounts of Atk from his buffs, making his real shtick about having incredibly high Atk from buffs. If this is feasible then I have an other suggestion for his LB.
LB Take Two --
Proposed Additions
Increase Atk Buff, Increase Mod of ALL damage abilities 
A simple change that gives SGumex a reason to make Lucius a stronger unit. With his few abilities, I think it makes sense for this to be the only ability that increase mods, aside from his last CD skill and maybe Unjust Cause, but I like them both more as something to activate Final Moments.
Proposed new ability
Chaotic Tail
Allows abilities to be used twice 
AKA, dualcast. The name is based off of his sister's dual-cast. This allows him get set up much faster or get better at dealing damage. Since he's a dualwield unit, I don't think it's necessary for him to get triple-cast, but it's still nice for damage units to get dual-cast at minimum.
Frenzied Rush
Proposed changes
Increase damage Dealt , Increase hit count , Change frames -> EITHER Triple Spray Frames OR True Blade Charge 
With the promise of a future Rico, I think Luci could work incredibly well as a chain partner for him. Having him chain with 2B's LB-oriented build would also be quite nice as well; however, he would need to gain Graviton Cannon frames to be a good partner for her throughout the fight. Since he already has access to Octaslash chaining, he seems to be a much better partner for Rico.
Feral Charisma
Proposed changes
AOE Dispel , chance to Charm 
This makes it a usable skill while being somewhat realistic. So charming he can make his foes forget all their troubles (breaks and imperils), but also make defenseless against such an enchanting man.
However, I also have a different idea for this so that he can work better with his sister.
Feral Charisma V2
Proposed addition
Increase chance to be targeted by 100% 
This would allow Lucius to be a viable evade provoke tank. This is more niche and has less usability, it gives Lucius a good niche and would, again, make him work better with his sister since their counters would c-h-a-i-n (reminder that Luci's are S(ingle)T(arget)).
Dusk/Dawn Barrage
Proposed changes
Increase hit count , change frames ; POSSIBLY imperil Fire/Dark 
These would make him a much easier partner to use and greatly increase his D(amage)P(er)T(urn). Now for why I said "POSSIBLE", it's because I feel that Lucius is meant to be partnered with his sister who can provide imperils. Furthermore, based on their lore, it makes sense for her to be the one who weakens the enemy while Luci goes bapbapbapbapbapbapbapbapbapbapbapbapbapbapbabpabpabpabp. If we want to ignore lore, then these skills make the most sense to have the imperils.
Unjust Cause
Proposed changes
Reduce SELF Hp damage , increase Hp restored when Auto-Revived 
Please don't be suicidal Lucius. We're here for you. We love you.
Changes to self damage and to the Reraise heal to better keep him alive and coincide with his Final Moments buff.
Cleaving Barrage
Proposed chanages (this error made me laugh for some reason, I leave it for you all)
Increase damage , Increase Hit count , change frames -> EITHER Graviton Cannon , Absolute Mirror of Equity , Bolting Strike , OR Unspecified future Chain Family of Rico Rodriguez IF exists 
Making this a usable ability in trials would be quite nice. My preferences would be Graviton Cannon to properly be a chaining partner with 2B, the family Rico becomes a part of if he gets a new one, AMoE due to its high relevance of Fire-based units, or Bolting Strike since he is a Global Original unit.
Piercing/Crushing Barrage
Proposed changes
Increase damage 
Additionally, but only possibly if SGumex has no intention of expanding on them;
Change frames 
To further reiterate, only if they have no intention on expanding on the family. I would greatly prefer for them to keep the families and provide more meta partners, however I would also like Lucius to have a lasting (lasting as long as DDs can) kit.
Immortal Demon
Proposed Changes
 Self damage to Hp , Increase Hp restored when Auto-Revived , Increase Hp Healed 
Keeping the stat break of course. If something good wasn't mentioned in a proposition, assume it's still there. The Self-damage will allow you to trigger his Final Moments while the healing will make it seem as though nothing changed. Of course, adding buffs to this skill would produce the same result, but if the passive is there, it should be utilized.
Blood Moon Barrage
Proposed changes
Increase damage 
Yeah. To be TBH, I wouldn't mind if someone other than Esther got an AR chain that dealt good damage. This is also completely superior to Cleaving aside from the length of the attack and in some case the elements. The number of hits on AR chains are also quite useful for getting LB crystals and Esper stones.
Aggressive Presence
Proposed Changes
Increase LB Fill , Reduce Hp damage , /IF Possible/ Increase Atk Buff , POSSIBLY Increase damage of ALL Abilities 
I still really like the Idea of him having massive amounts of Atk from buffs, it sounds like a fun gimmick to me. I also didn't get rid of the self break for 3 reason; A. It goes along his risk and reward style. B. It gives him some more reason to be partnered with his sister who has AOE stat break resist. 3. He already has stat break resist in his kit and my proposed changes makes it a standard part of his rotation to keep his stat buffs up.

Epilogue:

Whenever I accidentally hit the back button on my mouse, I want to [REDACTED]... I had to rewrite everything between "Luci has pretty decent" and the Passives section twice. (I just hit the back button and am rewriting the next few lines. What a fantastic straight line of fate.) I should probably do these in a google doc or something else. Unfortunately with my work ethic, I'd probably forget about it and not finish (though a desktop shortcut might be encouraging). I'm also using RES so that I can get the formatting right with minimal effort.
I still enjoyed doing this. Talking about a character I like in a video game I like is always fun, and I hop they do good for Lucius.
As I'll always say, if there are any mistakes or errors, let me know. If you have disagree about one of my ideas or have an even better one, share it.
Time to say goodbye I guess. Man, I can't believe I decide to watch that show instead of Devilman Crybaby.
So, as the Canadians say, "goodbye in Canadian, eh."

2019.04.23 17:31 verbsnounsandshit WBSS reach deal with Matchroom Boxing to air Semi-Finals live on Sky Sports

Press Release - 23 April 2019
WBSS reach deal with Matchroom Boxing to air Semi-Finals live on Sky Sports
The World Boxing Super Series has partnered with Sky Sports and Matchroom Boxing to exclusively broadcast the three massive Semi-Final doubleheaders in the UK starting April 27 from the USA.
Sky Sports, the UK’s premier sports broadcaster, includes the World’s premier boxing tournament to its schedule with the quest for the Greatest Prize in Boxing, the Ali Trophy, entering the much-anticipated semi-final stage.
The WBSS joins top boxing stars such as Anthony Joshua on the UK platform and adds some mouthwatering match-ups over the next few months as the finalists are decided, such as Nonito Donaire vs Zolani Tete, Regis Prograis vs Kiryl Relikh, Naoya Inoue vs Emmanuel Rodriguez and Ivan Baranchyk vs Josh Taylor.
“The WBSS is delighted to be working with Sky Sports and Matchroom Boxing to bring our sensational semi-finals to as many UK fans as possible,” said Kalle Sauerland, Chief Boxing Officer of Comosa, the organiser of World Boxing Super Series. “Boxing fans can look forward to colossal nights of boxing. Supreme athletes in the bantamweight, super-lightweight and cruiserweight divisions are putting everything on the line for a place in the finals of the WBSS where the Ali Trophy awaits the winners,” added Sauerland.
Adam Smith, Head of Sky Sports Boxing, said: “I’ve admired the talent of Josh Taylor for a while and I’ll look forward to another red-hot atmosphere in Glasgow as Taylor bids to become the latest in a line of proud Scottish world champions.
“It’s wonderful to add The World Boxing Super Series semi-finals to our stacked Sky Sports schedule for the summer.
“The fearsome Naoya Inoue and four-weight champion Nonito Donaire also bring star quality to a tournament featuring world title fights, former champions, and unbeaten contenders, starting this Saturday on Sky Sports.”
"I’m delighted to bring these fight nights to Sky Sports and particularly pleased to air the big May 18 card from Glasgow," said Eddie Hearn, Matchroom Boxing Managing Director. "It’s a massive chance for Josh Taylor to become World champion and the fight between P4P star Inoue and Rodriguez is a cracker.
"It completes a huge May with action every weekend – we begin with the Middleweight unification between Canelo and Jacobs on May 4, then we return to Nottingham on May 10 for the latest installment of the JD NXTGEN series – May 18 in Glasgow followed by the WBC World Heavyweight title clash Wilder vs. Breazeale from New York and then on May 25 the undisputed Cruiserweight champ Aleksandr Uysk makes his Heavyweight debut against Carlos Takam in the States. This builds us into the US debut of Anthony Joshua at MSG on June 1 – what a schedule!"

2019.04.05 18:35 s0ngsforthedeaf /r/Championship's Championship club-by-club season review and run-in preview discussion thread - Part 1 (Norwich, Leeds, Sheff Utd, WBA, Bristol)

Part 2 here - Part 3 here

On the 3rd August 2018, the 127th season of the English second division - also known as the Championship - began. Tom Lawrence scored a last minute winner for Derby against Reading, which set the precedent for an exciting and high quality season! (It also set the precedent for Derby to do the normal Derby thing of being vaguely exciting at times, but ultimately fail at promotion. probably)

The season has been dominated by the top 3 clubs, all of whom have exceeded expectations. But every club has a story to tell about wondergoals, star players, expensive flops, shock results, and meme-able moments. (Ipswich are bottom because they can’t score and Bolton Wanderers are disintegrating as a club. So…maybe they have fewer positive stories to share)

And there is still plenty to play for, with almost nothing decided yet. This is the views of fans from most clubs on how their season has gone, with a quick recap and tactical summary, and how they think the run-in will go. I thought this write-up was a good idea now, to get your jimmies rustled for the run in, rather than after the season has finished. So please, have a good read and discuss your thoughts below. Write-ups for 21 of the 24 clubs (sorry Preston, Blackburn and Rotherham - maybe I can find someone next time) are spread over 4 parts because of the character limit.

Good work /Championship community for coming together to get this made! If you havent visited the sub already, then you're really fucking useless, because I promote it like it dispenses free gold or something. Please pay us a visit - if not to discuss the best league in the world, then to enjoy the memes.

So heres the table, with the bookies' implied odds of promotion/relegation, depending on which is more likely. (All teams have played 39 of 46 games, except for Bristol, Derby, Swansea and Millwall, who've played 38.)

Club/Position Goal difference Points Odds
1. Norwich +30 81 P=98%
2. Leeds +25 76 P=71%
3. Sheffield Utd +29 74 P=57%
4. West Brom +25 70 P=31%
5. Bristol City +9 61 P=17%
6. Aston Villa +15 60 P=11%
7. Derby +7 60 P=7.7%
8. Middlesbrough +7 59 P=5.9%
9. Nottingham Forest +9 57 P=2.0%
10. Preston +7 57 P=2.8%
11. Sheffield Wednesday -3 56 P=1.0%
12. Hull 0 54 P=0.4%
13. Brentford +7 50 P=0.4%
14. Swansea +1 50 P=0.7%
15. Stoke -5 48 P=0.1%
16. Blackburn -9 47 R=0.2%
17. QPR -15 44 R=1.0%
18. Birmingham +3 41 R=5.9%
19. Reading -15 40 R=14%
20. Wigan -16 40 R=9.1%
21. Millwall -15 37 R=14%
22. Rotherham -26 36 R=67%
23. Bolton -36 32 R=97%
24. Ipswich -34 24 R=100%

Top goalscorers - Im gonna be lazy and just link to a picture of the standings. If you can’t be arsed clicking: Teemu Pukki for Norwich has 24, Billy Sharp for Sheff Utd has 23, Tammy Abraham for Villa has 22. One of them will probably win the golden boot.

Heres a link to the season previews we did in the summer, so you can compare and have a laugh. How much did fans get right back then? (A: not very much)

1. Norwich City by DannyBrownsDoritos

Manager: Daniel Farke
Hopes/predictions at the beginning of the season?:
Farke's first season at Norwich could be charitably described as one of transition, which saw Norwich finish in a disappointing 14th playing frustrating, lacklustre football with the squad seemingly lacking any real ability to score. This was all in spite of Norwich boasting arguably the Championship's greatest playmaker in the form of James Maddison, who proved a bright spark in an an otherwise mediocre season. With Maddison's departure in the Summer to Leicester City, expectations for the current season were somewhat muted. A feeling of 'more of the same' seemed to be the near-universal prediction, with the team improving on last year's finishing position seeming like a reasonable target with a shot of ending up in the top 10, as well as continuing our unbeaten run in the East Anglian Derby against Ipswich Town to a full decade.
Mini season review - how has it gone so far?
To say that Norwich City have exceeded expectations this year is somewhat of an understatement. Despite a shaky start that initially confirmed the predictions of a mid table finish, Norwich have since become an incredibly well-oiled, high-performing side whose since become league leaders at the top of the table. To use another cliche, a recurring theme this season has been Norwich's "never say die" attitude, showing a consistent determination to get results, often from unfavourable positions. This mindset has seen the team stage some thrilling late victories and improbable comebacks. While this has been incredibly fun to watch, leaving it as close to the wire as they have on numerous occasions has also shaved years off the life expectancy of many a Norwich fan.
Of course, any talk of Norwich's this year has to include Teemu Pukki. Signed for free from Danish side Brondby in what may be one of the best signings in English football this season, no one expected the man so much of a revelation in front of goal as he has been, having found the net 24 times this season and is currently sitting in pole position as the Championship's top goalscorer. Other standouts this season include creative winger Emi Buendia, who has become an integral part of Norwich's highly threatening attacking force alongside the strong, speedy and Argos-loving Onel Hernandez. This season has also seen the breakthrough of a number of young players, most notably the full backs Max Aarons and Jamal Lewis and defender Ben Godfrey, who have all attracted the interest from Premier league sides, with Aarons and Lewis both being included in this year's team of the season, alongside Pukki.
Best/most used starting 11 and tactics:
Tifo Football have done a video analysing Norwich's tactics this season that's better than anything I could ever come up with, so watch that, or read the text version which can be found here.
This starting 11 is the one that's been used unchanged for a while now, and I can't see Farke making any changes to it, barring injury, suspension or a bad result.
Best/worst/memorable moments:
The late victories against Millwall and Bolton, as well as coming back from 3-0 down to draw with Nottingham Forest are obvious highlights and will probably be a large part of what people remember when they think back on this season.
Our best performance though would have to be our away victory against Leeds. A further highlight was the 3-0 victory at home against Ipswich, solidifying a decade long unbeaten run, and saw Paul Lambert sent to the stands.
Low points would have to be the losses at home to Leeds and Derby and any time we've taken a penalty, which we seem incapable of doing despite having a squad loaded with Germans.
Remaining fixtures and expectations - nervous?:
QPR [H], Reading [H], Wigan [A], Sheffield Wednesday [H], Stoke [A], Blackburn [H], Aston Villa [A]
All of these fixtures are winnable and it is possible that we could go the rest of the season unbeaten (though this is unlikely), but we could be 10 points clear and I'd still be nervous as hell. Now that we've got Boro out of the way the only one that gives me real pause would be Villa, but hopefully by then we'll be promoted (watch me jinx it here)...
If you get promoted/survive relegation you will...
While Norwich's possession based football has worked in the Championship, it definitely won't fly in the Premier League, so it will be interesting to see how Farke adapts his tactics to the challenges of the top flight. In addition, while we've been brilliant going forward, our leaky defence has contributed to so many games being closer than they need to be, so if we don't take measures to sure up our back-line, we will go down for sure.
Finishing position prediction: 1st
Rival watch and league prediction:
That Norwich have had such a good season has made Ipswich's meltdown all the sweeter, especially with Paul "Judas" Lambert at the helm. Still, at least they finally managed to get out of the Championship after all these years so at least they have that.
Promotion wise, I think us and Leeds will go up automatically, we'll take the title and Sheffield United will win the playoffs, though aside from West Brom I have no idea who'll be joining them, though I'd be surprised if one of them wasn't Aston Villa. As for relegation, I think it will stay as it currently is now with Rotherham, Bolton and Ipswich heading for the drop.

2. Leeds United by babyjman

Manager: Marcelo 'El Loco' Bielsa
Hopes/predictions at the beginning of the season?: A disappointing end of season, finishing 15th brought about the sacking of Paul Heckingbottom, and left us pessimistic about this season. The managerial shortlist of Di Matteo, Martinez, Ranieri and Conte, before the signing of Bielsa changed that however. Stories of his past reigns at top European clubs (as well as the horror stories!), 18 hour days in his office, and players picking up rubbish, left us unsure at what the season would bring. Bamford, Douglas (both permanent), Brown, Baker, Harrison and Blackman (all loan) were our transfers in, whilst 24 squad players were either sold or loaned out, including Academy product Ronaldo Viera, who was very promising for us last season, who left for £7million to Sampdoria.
Mini season review - how has it gone so far? A true season of ups and downs. 8 games undefeated at the start of the season, saw us fly to the top of the table, with Bielsa becoming a fan favourite. The great form continued into the December period, and it looked as though we could finally get promoted. Yet 7 points out of a possible 21 post Boxing Day, as well as the departure of playmaker Samu Saiz, not to mention the Spy-Gate Scandal saw us drop back into the promotion dog-fight. The arrival of Kiko Casilla from Real Madrid however sparked new optimism, and a mixed bag of results see us in a 3-way battle with Norwich and Sheff Utd for 2 automatic promotion spots. Recently, a home defeat to the latter saw us drop into third, before regaining our 2nd spot when they lost to Bristol.
Best/most used starting 11 and tactics: Bielsa has operated a variety of tactics, varying for each opposition in response to his in-depth research on each team. A freakish injury crisis has meant that we have barely ever been able to play a consistent line-up, so this is our 'strongest' but not most used. Our most principle formation is:
4-1-4-1 - In attack, Phillips will drop back as a half-back while the two wing-back will bomb forward, putting crosses in. Alioski started the season on the wing, before being pushed back to LB, a position he plays in for his nation, Macedonia. Only two games this season have we had both Roofe and Bamford fit. More usually, Tyler Roberts will be brought in, either playing on the right, with Pablo playing in the centre, or being in the centre himself. Jack Clarke is used as an explosive supersub.
Bielsa does also play a 4-2-3-1 which may see a more defensive player like Forshaw come in, and Klich play as the AM, or even a 3-3-1-3. I will add however, that a number of players have been rediscovered this season under Bielsa. Before this season, Liam Cooper was the scapegoat of many of our defensive problems, Phillips was an attacking midfielder that was lacklustre, Klich was 4th choice, seeking a new club and Roofe was an average striker. Bielsa has also shown gametime to many youth players, with gametime being given to Jack Clarke, Leif Davis, Tyler Roberts, Jamie Shackleton, Tom Pearce and Aapo Halme, all of whom are under the age of 21. Bailey Peacock-Farrell in his first season as 1st choice keeper, gained a lot of confidence and trust, playing a crucial role in keeping us near the top before he was replaced in January.
Best/worst/memorable moments:
Best: Opening 3-1 win vs Stoke and 4-1 vs Derby, what a way to start the season. 3-0 vs Norwich and 4-0 vs WBA, just games where we dominated against top opposition. Last minute comebacks against Villa and Blackburn which see us still near the top.
Worst: Don't want to think too much about these, but a couple spring to mind. Completely out played by WBA, Playing like crap against QPR, and losing top of the table clashes against Sheffield Utd and Norwich.
Memorable: Klich's water bottle squirt, Klich's 'spy' celebration vs Derby, Pontus Jansson getting injured against Sheffield Utd with no subs left, limping to play as a target man up front, missing a golden chance, then going in goal when Casilla got sent off, and Jansson's interview post Brentford .
Stat of the Season: Record after scoring first: 18W 0D 0L. 40 goals scored. 6 conceded.
Remaining fixtures and expectations - nervous?: Birmingham (A), Preston (A), Wednesday (H), Wigan (H), Brentford (A), Villa (H), Ipswich (A)
Good set of fixtures to come. Biggest challenges for me are Villa and Preston. Unfortunately for us, both Sheffield Utd and Norwich have easy fixtures to. It's going to come down to who doesn't drop points against lower opposition, not our strong point. A final game against Ipswich should favour us if it comes down to the final day. It's going to be a long stretch home.
If you get promoted/survive relegation you will..and if you dont you will.. If Leeds don't get promoted, I will be bitterly disappointed. This is our biggest chance, and I can't see Bielsa staying if we don't make it. If we don't make it automatically, it will be horrible, given it's all in our hands right now, 2 points clear of 3rd. If we do get promoted, I can see a long stay in the Prem, given chairman Radz's involvement in the club, and willingness to recycle and income gained back into the club.
Finishing position prediction: 2nd.
Rival watch and league prediction: I'm seeing us and Norwich going up automatically with Blades coming up through the playoffs. There have clearly been 3 stand out teams this season. Down the other end of the table, for me it's goodbye to Ipswich, Bolton and Millwall, with Rotherham just staying up.

3. Sheffield Utd by 8-moebius-8

Manager: Sheffield United, Chris Wilder (and Alan Knill)
Hopes/predictions at beginning of season: After flirting with the playoffs but ultimately finishing 10th last season, and some typically shrewd recruitment over Summer, we wanted to solidify our chances at reaching playoffs, keep improving defensively and beating more teams at the top of the pile.
Mini season review: Exceeded expectations so far. Kept pace with some amazing clubs in the top 6, with much bigger budgets and more ‘stars’. Egan (new record signing), Norwood (absolute steal at £2mil) and Henderson (loan) have vastly improved our defensive standards so was vaguely hopeful of challenging the top 2. Additions like Madine, Dowell and McGoldrick have boosted our attack and given us different options. Wilder continues to draw praise for his mixture of unorthodox tactics and team-togetherness – the consensus being that United are over-achieving considering the quality of the squad. Conceded least goals in the league and have had a great away form, averaging 1.68pts for away games and 2.1pts at home. Wilder, Norwood and Sharp have all been named in Championship TotS.
Best/most used starting 11 and tactics: (3-5-2) GK: Henderson DF: Basham, Egan, O’Connell MDF: Stevens, Fleck, Norwood, Duffy/Dowell, Baldock ST: Sharp, McGoldrick.
With a gutsy, energetic, almost entirely British squad, Wilder and Knill employ a back-3 with encouragement to bomb forward and overlap the wingbacks to create overloads that defences tend not to know how to deal with. Norwood’s stats suggest he is useful as a deep-lying playmaker, spreading the play and shielding the back-line. Sharp’s hold-up play is invaluable and allows us to play more direct if we’re under pressure, as well as being one of the league’s top scorers (22). The wingbacks get forward at any opportunity, sometimes leaving us exposed but with 17 clean sheets, the defence are doing a solid job.
Best/worst/memorable moments: Throwing away that lead at Villa to finish 3-3 was heart-wrenching, although we took Villa apart 4-1 earlier in the season. Also, Bristol City coming from behind twice after our momentous victory at Leeds and after a 10-game unbeaten run was hard to swallow. Winning away at West Brom with 10 men and Leeds after getting battered most of the game showed our steely side. Memorably, an unexpected goal-celebration involving ‘Mr Socko’ resulted in WWE legend Mick Foley becoming an honorary Blade and coming to watch the Brentford home win.
Remaining fixtures and expectations: PNE (A), Birmingham (A), Millwall (H), Forest (H), Hull (A), Ipswich (H), Stoke (A).
With our form and previous fighting-spirit, it’s possible that we could win all our remaining fixtures and wait for Leeds to inevitably fuck up. All our games are winnable, but Forest may be tricky. This might be necessary, as the top-3 is impossible to predict and WBA aren’t far behind! Blades don’t do well in play-offs so hopefully can keep ahead of the chasing pack and a blip from Leeds gifts us second place and automatic promotion.
If you get promoted/survive relegation...: Hopefully promotion would mean our Saudi bankroller finally gets his hands in his pocket, but there are ongoing talks/arguments between co-owners, local bloke - Kevin McCabe and Saudi royal - Prince Abdullah. If we end up in the playoffs, I can see us getting beaten by a West Brom or Villa due to their superior experience of big games. The ultimate slap in the face would be Wednesday scraping playoffs and beating us, however, another season in the Championship strengthening our side wouldn’t be the worst result.
Finishing position prediction: 2nd
Rival watch and league positions: It looks like it’s a two-horse race between us and Leeds now for the second automatic spot. Wednesday and Forest refuse to give up the chase for playoffs – 5th place to 14th there is only a 10-point gap so there will be a lot more shuffling yet!

4. West Bromwich Albion by CheeseMakerThing

Team, Manager: West Bromwich Albion, James Shan (took over from Darren Moore in March)
Hopes/predictions at the beginning of the season?:
Most fans were expecting a top 6 finish come May though a few expected more and a few expected less. Coming down from the Premier League can often make it difficult to gauge expectations and relative squad strength with us not being in the Championship for a fair while. Though there wasn't much inward investment into the squad alongside the loss of our best player in Ben Foster, the squad was left relatively intact and with a manager who had performed miracles with them the back end of the previous season providing a relatively stable base to build on.
Mini season review - how has it gone so far?
It's been an interesting season and a breath of fresh air after suffering in the Premier League. Currently we're on track for a play-off spot with a comfortable gap to 7th and a chance of finishing in the automatics, albeit an extremely slim one. The season started on the back foot with a defeat to Bolton but despite not really looking that good for most of the season the quality has shown. The main issue has been one of consistency, we've been in and around the top all season but never seemingly challenging for the top spot whereas the 3 teams above us have, and though we've not been in danger of dropping out of the top 6 we've imploded when we were in reach of top spot. The last time that happened unfortunately cost Darren Moore his job, a disappointment but not really that shocking as despite our results the consistency and performances had dropped off with the results drying up. Results have again picked up since then with 3 wins on the trot but the performances still haven't been that convincing.
Best/most used starting 11 and tactics:
The heart attack: This tactic was what we used to start the season, and was quite frankly unsustainable. The general play style in possession was based around passing around the back 3 and between the deeper midfielders, but as we didn't have the players to do that we kept giving up possession in dangerous areas, like just in front of our box. As the players were exposed and spread out defensively, those mistakes usually ended up in us conceding. Kyle Bartley was a particular problem as was the static movement of Brunt and Livermore. On the flip side, the formation and playing style was adept in drawing in the opposition leaving their defenders exposed, and it seemed that every time we managed to quickly pass the ball and move it to Harvey Barnes we would score, with Gayle providing particularly fruitful. Ultimately though the setup turned stale, Barnes was being marked out of games and the strikers were isolated leading to the goals drying up and ending with 3 defeats and 1 draw from the back end of October to early November.
The HRK Special: Going into the game against Leeds without a win in 4, the management team had a masterstroke. Gayle was dropped for Robson-Kanu giving us an outlet to use and one defender was dropped to bolster the midfield providing width. We won 4-1 and Darren Moore and Graeme Jones didn't look back, ultimately costing them their jobs. We went on a run of 9 games unbeaten, winning 6. The extra man started to give us more space and having Robson-Kanu meant players couldn't crowd out Harvey Barnes as much giving him space to run. Gareth Barry rolled back the years with some excellent defensive screening helping us move into a back 5 if needed or just making sure there wasn't as much of a gap between the back 4 and the midfield and Matt Phillips was able to use his technical ability to create space in the centre of the pitch and allow the formation to shift to a 4-4-2 if needed with Robson-Kanu able to move inwards. Unfortunately, the defensive problems were still evident and though slightly mitigated the mistakes were still present with overplaying from the back still the main issue. Barnes was recalled by Leicester and an injury to Matt Phillips left the team without dynamism. The insistence in playing the ball turned into moving the ball sideways and Gayle was pushed wide to fill the hole left by Barnes, stifling him and the lack of pace in midfield meant that we weren't able to transition our attacking shape as easily. As we entered the crunch month in February it was make or break and unfortunately we broke. As always, Albion lost to a Tony Pulis team and though we then went 3 games without losing, Sheffield United and Leeds taught us a footballing lesson. The lack of strength and movement in midfield and threat and pace up front meant Sheffield United were able to control which areas we were able to move into and Leeds' energy and pressing forced our defence into the errors they were making all season with their sideways passing but on a scale of 100. The experiment ended with an fortunate draw with Ipswich who capitalised on the stubbornness of passing out from the back, constantly harassing our defenders and forcing them into mistakes.
Back to basics: James Shan's short time in charge has so far used a more pragmatic style based around 4-2-3-1. The players are no longer under instruction to pass it out which has limited the amount of mistakes coming in possession. Though there have still been defensive errors, notably against Swansea, they've been more to do with individual positional errors. The team has more width with Gayle being moved centrally where his movement has created space for our midfield. Kyle Edwards has come in on the wing the last two matches to provide some pace and Jay Rodriguez has looked more comfortable out wide than Gayle has, with the full backs able to overlap. The most notable shift has been the movement from left to right, instead of going through 4 or 5 players it has now been more direct, stretching the opposition. Robson-Kanu still provides that outlet when he comes on with his ability to hold the ball up stretching defenders more and preventing them from pressing our midfield. This extra space has revitalised Chris Brunt who has had a very poor season, his passing range and vision has been key in our more pragmatic style as well as a renewed threat from his dead ball ability.
Best/worst/memorable moments:
From an attacking point of view, the 4-1 win against Leeds takes some beating. The performance was exceptional in all departments with the speed of play completely nullifying Leeds' press. The 2-0 win at Villa Park was also special. A win against Villa is always big for West Brom fans but to not really getting out of second gear in the process is rare.
The 4-0 hammering at Elland Road was embarrassing but I'd rank the 1-1 draw with Ipswich as worse as we failed to react to the Leeds defeat playing the same turgid stuff we'd done in the previous 2 games but to the bottom side and coming away very fortunate with a draw when Ipswich should have taken us to the cleaners. Getting Pulised again with a late 1-0 goal from a handball from a set piece was also a pretty crap feeling.
Key Stat: West Bromwich Albion have lost 1 of their last 12 games under caretaker managers and Sam Johnstone has made the most saves this season with 126 (not sure if it's the most in the league at the moment but it was immediately after our game with Birmingham, Marek Rodak had made 123 saves).
Remaining fixtures and expectations - nervous?:
Millwall (A), Bristol City (A), Preston (H), Hull City (H), Reading (A), Rotherham United (H), Derby County (A)
Not the easiest set of fixtures. Some banana skins against the play-off chasing teams and Millwall, Rotherham and Reading will be interesting as they're fighting for survival, they could be more motivated against us or be more reserved and nervous. Barring an utter capitulation I wouldn't expect us to drop out of the top 6 though.
If you get promoted/ you will... Keep most of the squad together but still lose most games and likely come straight back down.
and if you dont you will... Be forced to sell most of the players we have currently and start the new Championship season with a team that could either get us up or severely under-perform.
Predicted finishing postition: 3rd
Rival watch and league prediction:
Villa are in the play-off hunt and as such anything can happen. I obviously hope they don't because I just know they'll play us and beat us. Though not really rivals, Stoke and Birmingham are close. Stoke will finish the season in the bottom half and Birmingham will stay up despite their points deduction.
I expect Sheffield United to go up automatically out of them and Leeds but I do think we'll get past one of either Sheffield United or Leeds and into third, maybe I'm being optimistic. Bristol City might be able to get past us into 4th but even with their game in hand a 9 point deficit is a tough ask. I'm not making a prediction on who will win the play-offs as they're a lottery.
Ipswich are likely down, 13 points is far too much ground to make up. I think Bolton's off field troubles will bite them and they'll also be playing League 1 next season. Rotherham will probably join them because the only team within 3 points to them is Millwall who have a game in hand.

5. Bristol City by NewFoundLewE

Manager: Lee Johnson
Hopes/predictions at the beginning of the season?: The hopes of the club and the fan base for the 18/19 season was a promotion challenge. The most optimistic of fans would have predicted a playoff spot with most of the rest expecting a mid-table finish. Some fans thought we weren't spending enough money on big-name players having let some of our best players go. We had brought in quite a few new players and many of us were excited to see where this slightly different team would take us.
Mini season review - how has it gone so far? After 38 games (8 games left) we're sitting in 5th place. So we're very much in the mix of finishing in the playoffs! We are a much better team defensively than in previous seasons and that is largely down to the new CB partnership of Adam Webster and Tomas Kalas. The only two teams in the league have conceded fewer goals than us are Sheff Utd and Boro. Last season we were praised for our attractive football and whilst we played some good football this season, there have been moments where we've struggled to even put a few passes together. Our away form has been very good this season. We have the fourth best away record in the league (10W, 4D, 5L) but only have the 16th best home form (7W, 6D, 6L). I think our stand out player this season has been Adam Webster, he started the season a bit shaky but has grown into a very composed and reliable CB. He has the ability to drive out of defence and pick out a pass which often creates chances and he has already scored three goals this season.
Best/most used starting 11 and tactics: This is what our typical lineup looks like: http://lineupbuilder.com/?sk=hy9t4 The formations we have mostly played this season has either been a 442, 4141 or a 4231 (but the last couple of games we have been using a 352). Maenpaa has been our number 1 this season and has impressed. Both him and second choice Fielding are injured at the moment so young GK O'Leary has played the last couple of games. From the start of the season to about halfway through, Kelly was our starting LB but then lost his place to Chelsea loanee Da Silva. This was because Kelly kept making mistakes and Da Silva stepped up when given the chance. Hunt is our first choice RB but he's spent some time out injured so when he doesn't play it's Pisano or CB Wright who has fairly recently came back from injury. Webster and Kalas have played the majority of games at CB with Baker only making a few appearances. Pack is always the first name on the team sheet and Brownhill has partnered him in the middle due to Smith's long term injury (in which he returned against Sheff Utd away but then got injured again against Boro). January loanee Palmer made a promising start in midfield but has been benched in recent weeks. We often shake it up with the wingers with O'Dowda and Eliasson being rotated, Weimann started the season up top with Diedhiou but then was preferred on the RW. He's now returned up top and scored a hat-trick away at Sheff Utd! Diedhiou has been first choice striker all season with Taylor usually coming off the bench.
Tactics wise we like to pass it about the defence, push the fullbacks forwards, play diagonal balls and get crosses into the box. At times it can be hard to distinguish our tactics and have been known to launch the ball forward to an isolated Diedhiou in which he's not fast enough to run onto the passes.
Best/worst/memorable moments: We went on a massive unbeaten run of 15 games (11 wins, 4 draws) and a winning run of 9 games between 28/11/18 - 12/02/18 in which we went from 15th in the table (6 points off playoffs) to 5th (2 points off 3rd, 5 points off 2nd).
Best games being our double over Swansea: Swansea away & Swansea home
Double over Sheffield United: Sheff Utd home & Sheff Utd away
Our late winner away at Brentford: Brentford away
Coming from behind and scoring a late penalty winner against QPR: QPR home
Worst for me personally was losing both games against Leeds as my best mate is a Leeds fan.
Key stat: We have conceded third-fewest amount of goals in the league and have compared our home and away form (away better). I also think we've scored the most amount of goals from set-pieces in the league but can't find anything to support that.
Remaining fixtures and expectations - nervous?: Wigan (H), West Brom (H), Villa (A), Reading (H), Sheff Wed (A), Derby (H), Millwall (A), Hull (A).
On paper, we should win at home against 20th placed Wigan but having recently got outplayed against 24th placed Ipswich at home and our home form not being that impressive, I do have my doubts. As for the other games, West Brom, Villa, Derby and maybe even Sheff Wed stand out as possible 6 pointers.
If you get promoted/survive relegation you will..[and if you don't you will]: If we get promoted to the premier league then I think we'd need to invest in all areas of the team, the jump to the premier league is a huge one. I just hope we find the right balance of bringing in new players as we have seen Fulham invest a lot in new players but have already been relegated.
If we don't go up then I'd like us to make the permanent signings of Da Silva, Kalas and Palmer unless we can find anything better. I'd also like Johnson to work out his best starting 11 and for the club to invest in a top quality striker and midfielder. I'd also like us to be more consistent, it's great that we can go on winning runs but we also go on runs of not winning games.
Finishing position prediction: 5th
Rival watch and league prediction:
In terms of teams going down, I think Ipswich and Bolton are guaranteed, I'm not sure about the fixtures for the teams at the bottom but I'm going to go with Rotherham for the final place.
As for us, the last two games have made me more positive about nailing down a promotion place, but there is still plenty to do with other clubs very much on our tail.

2019.03.21 21:05 Allisaur21 Crazy Ex-Girlfriend PaleyFest Panel Recap!

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend PaleyFest Panel Recap!
Present: Kat Burns, Vella Lovell, Pete Gardner, Jack Dolgen, Rachel Bloom, Aline Brosh McKenna, Donna Lynne Champlin, Scott Michael Foster, Gabrielle Ruiz
Notable absences: Vincent Rodriguez III, Skylar Astin, Adam Schlesinger
  • Moderator: Talk about the first day you met / First Impressions of each other (circa June 2013)
  • Rachel was so scared because she pitched TV shows that no one wanted. Her advice to pitching musical shows is to not sing in the pitch. Don't want to stare into their eyes in an enclosed space. (Note: Rachel gives the crazy eyes) Her agents told her that Aline wanted to meet with her and told her not to fuck it up. Thought Aline was very nice.
  • Aline didn't know if Rachel was going to be more of an actress or not. Rachel doesn't like to be called cute, so Aline calls her adorable with no makeup on and casually dressed. Aline instantly vibed with Rachel, saying that she was a writer girl. They pitched Crazy Ex-Girlfriend within 15 minutes of meeting each other.
  • Rachel describes writer vibes and actor vibes. Rachel nods incessantly as she shows writer vibes. Rachel shows crazy eyes with actor vibes. (See pictures below)
Rachel's Writer Face

Rachel's Actor Face
  • Jack asks everyone for their asshole listening actor faces
  • Rachel insists that everyone on the stage should write, produce, and direct because they are more than capable of it
  • Moderator: Since you came from theater, what was the sharpest learning curve with working on TV? Weirdest thing you had to learn?
  • Donna Lynne had to wear Depends every day and her nickname was Sabotage. Coming from a live theatrical background, she didn't know how much she depended on the audience. She gauged her whole performance on how loud the audience laughed. They weren't allowed to make sounds during takes, so she felt insecure.
  • Moderator: When did you feel comfortable with the job you were supposed to be doing?
  • Donna Lynne jokes Season 4 Episode 16. Honest answer is halfway through Season 1. Thought she was going to get fired. The pilot didn't air until they were filming the 7th episode. Boasts about the talent on the show.
  • Moderator: You've worked on improv with names like Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, what did you learn there in terms of collaborating, comedy, building comedy and storytelling? What did you bring to Crazy Ex-Girlfriend?
  • Pete gives his asshole listening actor face. He says to give it everything that you've got. It was all singing and dancing and he had no business being on the show. Pete says he was intimidated and so supported by everyone. Suggests in improv that you should always make your partner look good. He was scared when he had to do his first song (I Love My Daughter But Not In A Creepy Way)

Pete's Actor Face
  • Rachel says the network thought the song was initially too creepy. The original song made it sound like Darryl wanted to fuck his daughter with the way the jokes heightened. Took the knowledge to future songs.
  • Moderator: Jack - who wears many hats (Aline jokes but only one outfit!). Which jobs that you have assumed on the show have been the most consistently difficult for you? How did you drive away those difficulties?
  • Jack only directed one episode and says it was a gift from Aline/Rachel for the opportunity. If he had done it the whole year, that would've been the answer. Bridging the gap between the writers room, story-wise, and song-wise.
  • Moderator: Vella, you went to Julliard. What elements of that formal training were you able to use? Are you calling back to the training every day or are you learning on the job?
  • Vella gives her asshole listening actor face. Feels like you can train forever and not feel ready. First day on S1E3 with the party episode. She didn't know that you don't need to go full out if the camera wasn't on you. Heather was supposed to be writing in a notebook everything Rebecca did, and Vella filled out that notebook during the take. Getting to mess up makes you feel more confident. Says the fourth season was kinda like senior year of high school.
Vella's Actor Face

  • Moderator: Kathryn, you won an Emmy in 2016... what is distinct about the choreography to this show, as it pertains to bringing these jokes to life? Is there such thing as comedic choreography? What is your approach to that?
  • Kat says the jokes and writing come first. Every single song has a distinct game. Game is finding the unusual thing and heighten it. Mentions her thought process for the choreography for The Moment Is Me. Jack says he laughed uncontrollably when Kat showed him the choreography for that song. Aline says as Vella sang the song at the table read, she instinctively added the "ughs" and they added it to the script afterwards. They clap and cheer JULLIARD!
  • Moderator: Gabrielle, for me, Valencia has changed the most since episode 1. She was sort of villainous, and then we felt sorry for her. Now she's our gal friend who is desperate to get married. From a character development perspective, what have you enjoyed the most about the evolution?
  • Gabrielle says the consistency of her being honest to whoever is around. Valencia is a mama bear who brings out the claws when she has to. Mean girls tell you what it's like. She started doing it for herself.
  • Moderator: To the actor who Aline has called a Swiss army knife performer (Scott looks at Aline with a puzzled face). How has this show changed the way you see yourself as a performer, in terms of the way it has stretched you and forced you to do things you didn't think you knew how to do?
  • Scott says the show is very unique. There have been musical shows (mentions Glee and Smash) that are about music, but this is an actual musical not about music. Did musical theater in high school and college, doesn't really consider it a college. Jack jokes that he went to Trump University. Scott didn't think he was going to do a lot of singing and dancing. Acknowledges that Kat, Aline, Rachel, and Jack have been instrumental in making him feel comfortable. Grateful for the experience.
  • Aline says Scott has a lot more dramatic background than most of the actors. She pulled him aside from makeup one day, and asked him if he was okay with shitting his pants for the sake of the story line. Scott laughs. Aline says Scott was 100% up for shitting his pants. Scott thought Aline was going to fire him so he did not hesitate to agree to shitting his pants. Aline says Esther texted her and thanked her for making the hot guy the one to shit his pants. Scott was just happy to be called the hot guy.
  • Moderator: Rachel, you have taken the show beyond its extended medium. You're going to Radio City Music Hall in May. What is the life of the incredible mythology that you have created? Do you see a bigger stage version of this in the future?
  • Rachel says everyone on stage is going to be involved in Radio City. She has plans for a stage musical, but they have only just started talking about it. The stage musical would be a retelling and condensed version. Rachel is going to bother the cast to do live shows for the next 50 years, but everyone is already booking other gigs.
  • Aline mentions that Skylar is not present because he's filming a pilot. Rachel says he immediately fit in with the cast. Donna Lynne says she didn't have any scenes with Skylar, but they all spent Thanksgiving at Pete's house and told her husband that Skylar was delightful and charming. Rachel says Skylar is from Rockland County, NY and her husband is from Long Island. They bonded over "Isn't that where that kid drowned?"
  • Moderator: If you could spend a final day with your character, what would do with him/her?
  • Donna Lynne would go to a spa with Paula and give her a day. Vella would smoke pot and eat a burrito with Heather. Pete would take dance classes with Darryl. Gabrielle would take Valencia to a yoga class and eat donuts at the Chinese place. Scott would take Nathaniel to the zoo and play a little water polo. Rachel would fuck Rebecca. She wants to see what she's got going on. She thinks Rebecca is better in bed than she is. Thinks they would have a good time.
  • Moderator: Which song do you love the most?
  • Gabrielle says Let's Generalize About Men - the lyrics alone, the timing of when it aired, performing it live w/ the women & David Hull. Talks about how they kept finding the glitter on set. Scott says Let's Generalize About Men is one of the best songs that they wrote. He doesn't have a favorite song but his favorite types are the group ensemble because that's when they're all together. Donna Lynne says The Math of Love Triangles because it was one of the pinnacle of all 4 years. Settle for Me comes in a close second. Aline blasts First Penis I Saw the most.
  • Rachel says it's making her heart hurt because they're talking about the show in past tense. She says every song is very special to her, but the one that comes to mind is The Villain of My Own Story. She won the Golden Globe and came back to set to shoot that song. She wanted to put the Golden Globe in the shot, but their line producer didn't want to get sued for it. Got a prosthetic nose and ate chili fries with it.
  • Aline says the cast are all fans of each other. Scott came to see Pete do Man Nap. Vella came to set to see Fit, Hot Guys, but in her defense, she thought the whole cast was going to show up. Aline forgot to tell Vella that Tan France was going to be on set.
  • Kat says her favorite song is Antidepressants Are So Not A Big Deal. Pete says his favorite song is whatever song is playing at the moment. They're catchy and will be stuck in your head.
  • Aline says the writer's room loved it when Rachel, Jack, and Adam would pitch songs. The most memorable one was when Jack played I Could If I Wanted To. Rachel says she couldn't control her laughter when Jack sang Apple Man to her. Jack says it was the stupidest thing he has ever written.
  • Moderator: You guys have been very active on social media. Is there some interaction that has stuck with you, that this job is a hard job but it has been all worth it?
  • Gabrielle likes being the conversation starters for the younger generation through the music. Pete says that people have come up to him and told him how important Getting Bi was to them. A young girl didn't know how to explain to her parents and played the song for them and told them that was her. Experience was very humbling. Jack says he was personally touched by the content of the show. He wrote some of the episodes that dealt with mental health challenges.
  • Moderator asks Rachel about her interaction with Mel Brooks
  • Rachel says Mel called her in the middle of season 2 to say that he wasn't going to be on her show because it didn't do anything for him. Jack and Rachel met him backstage. Mel kept kissing her face and insulted Jack's wardrobe. Mel says people usually pay for the meet-and-greet. Jack reaches into the pocket of his denim ensemble, and Mel says "the way you're dressed, you'll never have enough."
  • Moderator: When Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is rebooted in 20 years, where will these characters be?
  • Rachel insists on 10 years. She says she has the pitch, but won't say it because you have to see the series finale first. Aline says they've been working every single day. They just came from editing the live concert special. Rachel says it's going to be a TV movie on Hallmark. Moderator jokes about Lori Loughlin being fired from Hallmark.

2019.02.18 16:27 InTheMiddleGiroud 12 League SBCs will have a third reward player released this week. A look at who they could be.

Intro
As part of the Winter Refresh EA are updating the League SBC adding an extra player to the completion reward of each and every one.
So far they've added Lanzini (ENG1), Fer (ENG2), Carrasco (CSL), Delaney (GER), Alessandrini (MLS) and Haps (HOL).
Using these 6 updated League SBC's as templates, it seems EA are following a few 'rules' when selecting the players.
  1. No club gets two players as rewards.
  1. Decent links to popular players.
(3. Positional diversity)
  1. No keepers.
So what players could it be?
I know you guys are used to FIFA YouTubers clickbaiting, so I'm going to do the same and save the best for last.
Scottish Premiership
As per rule 1, Rangers and Celtic are out, which eliminates every single gold player in the league. It's hard to say what they are going to do. The most desirable link in the Scottish League is 84 Tierney, who's a very decent left back.
So an educated guess would be a player like Graeme Shinnie from Aberdeen, who gets the green link and already has great physical stats for a silver CDM. An outsider could be an English player to link with a potential FB Defoe.
Seeing as they've used to Boca players already in Argentina, this might be another exception to rule 1, though.
Saudi Professional League
Gomis and Musa eliminiates Al Nassr and Al Hilal, so there's not going to any for the two highest players in the league, Giovinco and Guiliano. Al Ahli have been omitted and have a few gold players. Most of which are terribly uninteresting. Of these Souza, a 79 rated Brazilian CDM with 84 PHY and okay pace is probably the most likely bet. Especially as Al Ahmady is wholly unlinkable and they've already done two strikers.
Super Lig
Unlinkable Egyptian Trezeguet and Unlinkable Morocan Belhanda need a partner. Galatasaray and Kasimpasa are out as a result of these two.
This leaves club like Besiktas and Fenerbache who might get a look in. Especially Besiktas as they have 85 OTW Kagawa and 86 IF Quaresma alongside Pepe before he went to Porto. He could get a partner in World Cup hero Domagoj Vida, while an upgraded Adam Ljajic could also be a decent card. None of these are very linkable, though. Unlike Fenerbache's Mathieu Valbuena or Roberto Soldado. Besiktas left back Adriano is also in with a shot.
Meijo Yasuda J1
Lu-lu-lu Lukas Podolski and Jo got in the first round of rewards. So if you were dreaming of David Villa (Vissel Kobe) you'll have to wait for his flashback SBC.
Even though FUTmas Iniesta exists, people might have a hard time linking Torres. I think they could try to give him an "Alessandri" through Osmar a 71 rated Spanish CDM with 86 physical. Another likely option is his 72-rated striker partner in Satan Tofu, FIFA Legend Victor Ibarbo, who I'd probably put good money on being the third player.
Hyundai A-League
Who cares? Probably Siem De Jong or Diego Castro. Stop asking!
SAF
It's not going to be 3 players from Boca, but FB Tevez might still be the one in EA's mind when they try to decide on the third player. With Zarate and Pavon the top players in the SAF are quite attacking. So it's unlikely to be another striker or right winger. Most likely option seems to be a central midfielder or a left sided player. Enzo Perez or Juan Quintero could be decent shouts here. Centurion and Acosta could also both make for decent left wingers.
Pro League
When I started doing this write-up, I didn't know there would be this many 'boring' Leagues. A good bet here is unlinkable 5star4star Yannick Bolasie from Anderlecht to get an upgrade, but there's a bunch of mediocre gold cards who could get a nice card and good links with and upgrade.
Liga Bancomer MX
Two Colombian strikers in the last batch alongside POTY Gignac, makes a fourth striker rather unlikely. Two of these three are from Tigres, so they probably not likely to get a third either.
There's a few decent Mexican cards out there in Lozano, FB Chicharito, League SBC Herrera etc. so it's probably likely you'll see another Mexican player enter the fray. Layun would be favorite if Monterrey hadn't already had Hurtado as rewards in the first batch of players. Maybe Javier Aquino because (insert reasonable argument and poor joke here).
Liga NOS
Could Pepe's linkage to FFS Eder Miliato, FB Casillas and Alex Telles be enough to make EA give Porto another reward card. Probably not. Benfica and Porto got the first two, so if EA don't want to get beaten up in their own training ground, they'll probably give one to Sporting. Bas Dost already have a Halloween card and Fernandes have an 85-rated inform. Maybe Coates who's a well known player and an interesting link to guys like FUTmas Torreira and Godin as well as the other great defensive cards Liga NOS has. Alternatively the league does not have a single striker with both good pace and dribbling, so maybe Montero, Ruiz or Diaby from Sporting could get lucky.
Ligue 1
PSG didn't get one the first time around, so they might be due. Rabiot is a decent link to both the three PSG frontmen as well as FFS Aouar and Ndombele. It's likely that EA will deem that PSG have more than enough Special Cards and that there's plenty of good French midfielders.
The League is in desperate need of good left back below 300k, so Bernat or Barreca (Edit: Plays for Newcastle now) are in with a shout. It's not like Monaco is going to get special cards through playing good football, right? This SBC could also be a chance for fan favorite Areola, and knowing EA maybe a 4th 86 rated Fekir to please the masses. Ligue 1 is currently Neymar or bust at LW, so well-rounded 4star4star Nacer Chadli could also be an option.
Serie A
Hands up, those of you who liked the 65 pace striker from the first batch? No-one? Well, at least Skriniar was decent.
This is a chance to finally give Piatek a proper super-card. But I think that one is unlikely. Milan, Lazio, Juventus and Napoli are the most likely recipients of the player with Atalanta as an outsider for a link to their Argentinians. Alex Sandro's is the only truly great left back so Ghoulam and Ricardo Rodriguez could be good shouts. I doubt they're going to release another defender, so they might continue upgrading Juve CMs for Ronaldo, and give Emre Can a whirl.
A usable player who's not gotten much love this FIFA is Dries Mertens, with the nice link to SBC Hamsik and then there's the wet dream for Empoli, Frosinone and Parma investors. Dybala or Alex Sandro
La Liga
Is Barcelona or Atletico getting one? In the PL League SBC they've given love to the smaller teams, and they could do the same here, considering they've already dished out to Celta and Girona-underdogs Real Madrid. Also, every Barcelona player basically have an upgraded card already. Maybe Umtiti or Roberto/Semedo, but I wouldn't count on it.
For Atletico you could complete the Oblak/HL Hernandez/Godin/FB Juanfran defense with a nice Filipe Luis, who's also a nice green link to Halloween Koke. Their central midfielders have one upgrade between them this season, so it could also be Saul, Partey or Rodri. The lack of right mids in La Liga could give a go to Angel Correa or Joaquin. As it's expensive to make, they're probably going to go for a bit more high-end player like Casemiro or Aspas were. I think he's going to be upwards of 90 rated as well, so by your Huesca's and you Valladolidians.
Outro
What more do you want from me? Fuck off.
But please to come back and laugh at me, when I don't get a single one.

[Original Content] The Franklin Scandal: A shocking investigation into the revealing of a massive elite child abuse ring centered in Franklin Nebraska. Despite overwhelming evidence and testimony, all publicly available information, the guilty were found innocent and the case was swept under the rug
https://preview.redd.it/ccbqt83azzo11.png?width=768&format=png&auto=webp&s=292a70796eb0368ad4e26b4757d55544188e89de
“Homosexual Prostitution Inquiry Ensnares VIPs with Reagan, Bush”. This article was published in the Washington Times and was written by award-winning, Pulitzer Prize nominated journalist Paul Rodriguez. After years of research, Rodriguez had compiled the radical evidence necessary to publish such claims.
He had uncovered a homosexual prostitution ring tied to the White House. One central figure, Craig Spence, a Republican powerbroker, had the political clout to bring prostitutes on midnight tours of the White House. The report names multiple White House insiders, military personnel and members of major media institutions as clients, based on credit card records procured by Rodriguez.
“Among the client names contained in the vouchers – and identified by prostitutes and escort operators – are government officials, locally based US military officers, businessmen, lawyers, bankers, congressional aides and other professionals... Although the confiscated material was turned over to District police on the scene, witnesses and law enforcement agents say the Secret Service kept one box containing names and other information about high-level government officials who were clients of the male escort business. District police officials say that, to their knowledge, this is the first time the Secret Service has ever become involved in such a raid in this area.” – Washington Times
Craig Spence would throw extravagant parties for the Washington D.C. elite, with 'call boys' freely available for interested party-goers. Various associates, including multiple of Spence's body guards, came forward and admitted that his house, where the parties were located, was thoroughly bugged with audio and video recording equipment, with the intent of extortion and blackmail of those who ended up in compromising positions.
Spence was somewhat of a mystery man. What type of employment did he have? No one knew for sure, though Spence himself would often boast of his important connections. One of his associates told the Times:
“He described Mr. Spence as 'strange', saying he often boasted that he was working for the CIA, and on one occasion said he was going to disappear for a while 'because he had an important CIA assignment'. According to the businessman, Mr. Spence told him that the 'CIA might double-cross him', however, and kill him instead and then 'make it look like a suicide.'” – Washington Times
Indeed, Spence would die just months after the interview, of an apparent suicide, but not before admitting that his parties were bugged by friendly intelligence assets which he refused to name. The investigation by Paul Rodriguez and his associates would also screech to a halt after all of the evidence was either classified by the Secret Service or tied up in red tape. Someone in a high position of power clearly did not want the full extent of the revelations to become public.
Homosexual prostitution on its own isn't shocking, and depending on your conceptions of morality, no different than the heterosexual prostitution that is likewise rampant in Washington D.C. with the only tangible difference being the repercussions of entrapment (especially for Republicans). However, one particular part of the investigation leads us down a shocking rabbit hole:
“In addition to credit-card fraud, the investigation is said to be focused on illegal interstate prostitution, abduction and use of minors for sexual perversion, extortion**, larceny and related illicit drug trafficking and use by prostitutes and their clients.” –** Washington Times
In fact, the name Craig Spence would appear repeatedly in another major prostitution inquiry, this one centered around children, known today as the Franklin Scandal, one of the darkest stains in the history of the United States...

* * * *

...To Franklin, Nebraska

The story of the 'Franklin Scandal' begins with Lawrence E. King, one of the fastest rising Republican stars of the 1980's. He was a public figure in Franklin, Nebraska who ran the Franklin Federal Credit Union, along with a series of restaurants and bars. These various businesses apparently furnished King's lavish lifestyle of private jets, extravagant parties and an entourage of assistants and bodyguards.
Larry King, as he was known, was accused by seven children of child abuse and prostitution before he sang the National Anthem at the 1988 Republican National Convention. But despite various petitions to local police and the FBI, no official investigations were ever undertaken.
One of the allegations began from the serious abuse of children at the hands of Jarret and Barbara Webb, the former a member of the Franklin Credit Union board; the latter a cousin of King, who adopted various foster children and would proceed to subject them to horrific physical, emotional and sexual abuse. The girls housed at the Webbs told of being taken to various parties in the Franklin area where Larry King and other important local figures sexually abused them. One of the girls, Eulice Washington, recalled being flown on King's private jets to be abused across the country.
“Among the first accusers was Eulice Washington, who claimed King flew her to out-of-state pedophilic orgies. She had been adopted by relatives of King's in the 1970s. Her new 'mother' was King's cousin Barbara Webb, and her new 'father' was husband Jarrett Webb, who sat on the board of the Franklin Federal Credit Union. To Eulice Washington, King had been Uncle Larry. 'Larry King set up the pedophile ring,' says Eulice. 'From my knowledge and from what I saw go down, he was the man who got it moving and rolling. Everything went through him. He loves boys. He loves them like he shouldn't.'” – The Franklin Scandal: A Story of Powerbrokers, Child Abuse and Betrayal
Despite Eulice passing various lie detector tests, charges were never pressed against the Webbs. The Foster Care Review Board was the first organization to come across various cases of abuse, from Eulice Washington and others. They wrote numerous letters to Nebraska's Attorney General Robert Spire urging an investigation, but their pleas were ignored.
The FCRB testified to the State Legislature's Investigative Executive Review Board Subcommittee in 1988 that:
FCRB Chairman Dennis Carlson: The nature of these allegations are something that is going to shock the Committee. They deal with cult activities... they deal with sexual abuse, and there's a correlation between these two different reports. We have, the Boys' Town report... prepared by a worker from Boys' Town named Julie Walters... (which) contains the allegations of the children that were in the Webb foster home, Nelly primarily. Years later, well, two years later, we have Loretta Smith in Richard Young Hospital who's making allegations against Larry King, and as far as we know there is no relationship between Nelly and Loretta Smith... Both reports talk about the Omaha Girls Club, both reports mention a specific individual who is the superintendent of schools.
State Senator Remmers: The question that came into mind, it's been in my mind since you've been testifying, and I think you've answered part of it just now, is you're talking about these abuses from children from Boys' Town and Girls' Club and so forth. Now is there a common thread that goes over here to the Credit Union deal that we are investigating? In other words to the Franklin Credit Union? Is there a common thread there that kind of leads to that?
FCRB Member Carol Stitt: Well, the common thread is Larry King.
Remmers: Yes, that's what I mean. It all goes back to him? OK.
Stitt: Yes, he seems to be more the organizer, or the high-class pimp, I mean if that helps fit this together.
Larry King would also be linked to embezzlement before he sang the National Anthem at the 1988 Republican National Convention, but again avoided an investigation. The facade unraveled in November 1988, when an IRS investigation revealed that King had stolen over $40 million from the coffers of the Franklin Federal Credit Union. The financial corruption alone shocked the city, but soon reports started circulating that in addition to various fraudulent accounting documents, investigators found a huge stash of child pornography as well.
More rumors of sexual abuse began to arise, with multiple allegations that Larry King was using children from Boys Town, the nearby Catholic charitable institution for orphaned youth. His yellow sports car was notorious on the Boys Town campus, where he would drive around and pick up minors for his pedophilic activities. The Catholic management denied any connection to King, but financial records showed that Boys Town had a close-knit relationship to the Franklin Federal Credit Union. Federal and local authorities immediately moved to close the investigation and seal evidence, claiming that allegations of child abuse were unfounded.
The authorities backtracked and stated that they had done everything in their power to investigate these claims. Attorney General Robert Spire said: “We did receive some sensitive information in July. My office acted promptly and professionally and nothing was sat on.” However, it would later be revealed that no authorities ever interviewed Eulice Washington and other children noted by the FCRB until three years later, after they made their report public.
Despite this, Omaha Chief of Police Robert Wadman stated to the press that “Every step that should have been taken, was taken.” However, Wadman would later confess that he had never contacted Eulice Washington, one of the children abused at the hands of Webb, nor the Child Protective Services department that handled Washington's claims. Wadman would later be identified as a child abuser at King's parties by four different victims.

Obstruction, Threats and Murder

In an early police investigation, low level police officers attempted to keep their inquiries a secret from Wadman, seemingly knowing that he would be adamant about shutting down their investigation. Nebraska Foster Care Review Board official Dennis Carlson related Omaha Police Officer Carmean's testimony to the Legislature's Executive Board hearing:
“[Officer Carmean] told me some things which I found to be somewhat startling. I asked if he was interested in information regarding Larry King and he said, yes we are, we're conducting what he called a supersensitive investigation of Larry King and he said this investigation was so supersensitive that they were not even using the steno pool in the Omaha Police Department. They were handwriting their police reports, and he also told me that Chief Wadman had come to their unit and directly asked if they were investigating Larry King.... Investigator Carmean told me, we lied to the Chief and we said, no, we are not investigating Larry King. That conversation took place on July 20th of 1988.”
Shortly afterward, Officer Carmean was transferred out of the Robbery and Sex unit and the investigation stalled. On July 5, 1989, in a lengthy "Inter-Office Communication" to Omaha Public Safety Director Pitmon Foxall (a cousin of Larry King), Wadman announced that Carmean needed a mental health evaluation.
Many were not convinced of the Police Department's conclusion that there was no substance to the abuse allegations, including a group of 12 State Senators who decided to create their own parallel commission to investigate the charges, lead by Senator Loran Schmit. Following the money trail, Schmit and his team quickly found that it could be traced directly to the sex parties and child abuse. It became clear to Schmit that he was uncovering some serious 'dirty laundry':
“I received a phone call on the floor of the legislature. The caller would not identify himself, but he said, Loren, you do not want to have an investigation of the Franklin Federal Credit Union, and I asked, who am I speaking to? And they said, that doesn't matter, but you shouldn't have that investigation. And I said, well, why not? And he said, it will reach to the highest levels of the republican party, and we're both good republicans.” – Loran Schmit
Schmit wasn't the only one to receive threats. The lead investigator of the State Senator's Committee, Gary Caradori, had also specified that he had received a series of threats, such as obvious tampering with his vehicle, as to send a message. In early July 1990, Caradori made a trip to Chicago to meet with a secret informant who had evidence which would 'blow the lid' off the case, and reportedly confided to a friend that he was one step ahead of those who wanted to squash the investigation, saying that if 'they' knew what information he had, he would be killed.
Upon returning from Chicago, Caradori's plane crashed, killing him and his son. The National Transportation Safety Board investigation found that the wreckage was scattered over a radius between 3/4 to 1 mile, indicating without a doubt that the plane broke up in the air, instead of upon impact. Certain items were missing from the crash, most notably Caradori's briefcase. Within 24 hours, all of the evidence was collected by the FBI and sealed.
* * * *

The Paul Bonacci Trial

What information was so important that the pedophile network would kill the lead investigator in what looked like a blatant assassination? It turns out he was meeting with Russell 'Rusty' Nelson, a photographer for Larry King, who attended King's parties with the intention of photographing powerful men in compromising positions with minors, in order to blackmail them later.
Like Craig Spence, King was known to throw lavish parties for the Republican elite, with underage prostitutes allegedly in attendance. Rusty Nelson was in hiding for an entire decade after the Franklin Scandal broke, but ended his silence under oath during a court hearing in 1999, in order to 'set the record straight'. He revealed that he had a very close relationship with King and kept hundreds of thousands of photographs of King's business dealings and parties in various locations. Most of the evidence had been confiscated, and more had been destroyed in Gary Caradori's plane crash.
Rusty's testimony to the District Court was very interesting. Among other events, he revealed that he personally saw Larry King place a direct call to then-president Ronald Reagan when other associates could not resolve a specific problem. He also claimed to have seen and taken pictures of the Chief of Police of Omaha Robert Wadman at various parties, engaged in various sexual acts with minors, and had once seen Wadman accept a large envelope full of bearer bonds from King. While most of Rusty's evidence was confiscated, he was able to provide the court with photographs that corroborated his close relationship to King, such as photographs of King inside his private jet and limousine, and alongside male strippers.
The District Court hearing was not about Rusty Nelson, but rather for compensation for one of the victims, Paul Bonacci, who had first made accusations of abuse against Larry King in 1986, two years before there was even a Franklin Scandal. The testimony given was so convincing that the judge awarded Bonacci with $1 million. The plan was to donate the proceeds to charitable organizations dealing with child abuse, but King has never paid. Paul Bonacci suffered from Multiple Personality Disorder, a diagnosis confirmed by three different state-appointed psychiatrists, from extreme abuse he had received beginning at the age of 3. At the age of 8, he became associated with Larry King and began attending his parties as a child prostitute.
The type of abuse Bonacci underwent at the hands of Larry King is shocking:
Bonacci: “They put guns up to my head, they put guns in my mouth... Larry King sent out boys, men, to jump me, he had them pretty well beat the tar out of me from the waist down so no one would see the marks, i had my fingers broken... I can remember them burning me with hot instruments... placing stuff inside me... almost what I would call a cattle prod.” Judge Urbom: “Done by Larry King at his direction?” Bonacci: “At his direction. If they wanted to get something passed in the legislature, he would put some people that were against it in a compromising position, by using us boys and girls.”
One of the men in Washington that Paul Bonacci claimed abused him is Democratic Senator Barney Frank. Bonacci was also taken on the very same midnight tours of the White House hosted by Craig Spence that journalist Paul Rodriguez wrote about in the Washington Times, as a child. He claimed that immediately after the tours of the White House, he was taken to another place to be sexually abused.

The Grand Jury Coverup

Before his untimely death, Gary Caradori had compiled a leads list of 271 victims of sexual abuse in the Franklin area, though his death precluded interviewing most, and others recanted their stories under pressure from Federal authorities, often accompanied by the threat of jail time for perjury. Along with Paul Bonacci, the investigation proceeded with three other primary witnesses, Troy Boner, Danny King (no relation to Larry), and Alisha Owens.
Both Boner and Owens recounted tales, after passing multiple state-sponsored lie detector tests, of attending hundreds of parties hosted by Larry King where they were abused by King and other prominent men in Lincoln and Omaha. The three would repeatedly corroborate each other in interviews taken under oath by Gary Caradori, initially without knowledge of each others participation in the investigation. Most of the victims claimed that they were used to transport drugs across state lines, at the demand of Larry King and Alan Baer, a prominent Omaha millionaire.
Gary Caradori once followed a lead of Alisha Owens where she claimed that she was often abused at The French Café in Omaha. He talked to the former manager on the telephone, Sheila McGuire, who told Gary that:
“We had parties in my apartment above the French Cafe. Larry King would wine and dine potential investors downstairs at the Cafe. When the French Cafe closed about 1 AM, King and his man called Parking Lot Bob-who worked for him (and was our coke connection) - would bring people upstairs to my place. If Larry King investors wanted drugs, booze, children or hookers (male or female) we'd get them. While these guests of Kings took their pleasures with the kids or whoever, King would sit and watch while he drank, did coke and played with his young boys.... One time, when this guy Irv from NYC wanted Sandra who was about 12 or 13 years old and getting her 1st period, Larry intervened when Sandra refused. King pulled out a roll of $100.00 bills and gave Sandra 5 of them. King then pulled out a small gram of coke and gave that to Sandra. Sandra finally agreed and went off to bed with Irv. King took good care of the local and out of town high rollers. If you had the money to invest at Franklin, King would cater to your most deranged perversion. And, let me tell you another thing. The boys in the board rooms around Omaha are shitting in their Brogans. If this case gets cracked open the list of involved will read like Who's Who. King and his crew have ruined a lot of children's lives.”
What happened next is amazing. Instead of indictments of the accused perpetrators to develop cases against them, both Douglas County and Federal Grand Juries ordered the thousands of files to be sealed, declined to interview dozens of witnesses, and then brought charges of perjury against Alisha Owens.
Both Grand Juries concluded that Troy Boner and Alisha Owens had indeed been abused, but claimed that the adults they testified against were innocent! Alisha Owens was later found guilty of perjury, and sentenced to between 9 and 15 years. She ended up spending two years in solitary confinement, more than any other woman in Nebraska history, and a clear message to other victims: Stay silent.
"This is unprecedented, probably in the history of the United States. If the children are not telling the truth, particularly if they have been abused, they need help, medical attention. You don't throw them in jail!" – Dr. Judianne Densen-Gerber, a lawyer, psychiatrist and nationally prominent specialist on child abuse, during her visit to Nebraska in December 1990.
On the same day that Alisha Owens was convicted of perjury, the charges against Paul Bonacci, who told a very similar story, were dropped. Perhaps they did not want certain testimony to come to trial, such as Bonacci's claim that Larry King would send limousines to Offutt Air Force Base and pick up CIA agents for his parties.
The Grand Jury trial was a mockery of justice, where the state-appointed attorney Samuel Van Pelt vigorously attacked the charges and mocked the allegations of the defendants. It has to be noted that a Grand Jury is a special type of proceeding where the attorney chooses all of the witnesses and what evidence is presented; there is no presentation of the defense or cross examination. A former Chief Judge of New York State once quipped that a special prosecutor could persuade a grand jury to "indict a ham sandwich."
There are shocking irregularities with the Grand Jury proceedings. First, it never called Larry King to testify. In fact, the evidence of child abuse and child pornography has never been presented against King in any court of law. One member of the Douglas County Grand Jury claimed that the Van Pelt helped write the final report, which is illegal.
The report contained some very peculiar statements, such as “children do have the right to expect that if they exhibit reasonable behavior, they will not be abused.” (Emphasis added). It also contained blatant lies, such as the claim that Paul Bonacci's doctor said that Bonacci was not capable of the truth, even though not only was the doctor not called to testify, he said elsewhere that he believed Bonacci's story.
Owen's attorney, Henry Rosenthal, found that the evidence shown to the Grand Jury was deliberately tampered with. The video testimony taken by Gary Caradori was edited to remove sections where Troy Boner and Alisha Owens corroborated each others claims. The lawyer representing originally Owens, Boner and (Danny) King originally claimed to have had over 100 clients who had suffered sexual abuse in relation to King and Boys Town, but then later claimed that their testimonies were all fabrications, only months before admitting she had an affair with an FBI agent who had bullied Troy Boner into temporarily recanting his testimony.
There is also the curious trend of upward mobility for a group of men who were instrumental in rigging the Grand Juries:
US Magistrate Richard Kopf, who deposited Lawrence King in a federal psychiatric hospital so he wouldn’t have to appear before the grand juries, and signed off on the FBI’s federal search warrant of Alisha Owen’s prison cell, is now a US District Court Judge. 2. Thomas Thalken, Assistant US Attorney for District of Nebraska, who prosecuted the federal grand jury in Nebraska is now a US Magistrate. 3. Gerald Moran, who was the Douglas County Deputy Attorney who prosecuted the Alisha Owen trial is now a Douglas County District Judge. 4. Robert Sigler, who was the Douglas County Deputy Attorney who prosecuted Alisha Owen throughout her multiple appeals, is now an Assistant US Attorney for the District of Nebraska

Troy Boner

Troy Boner had recounted his testimony during this period, after receiving threats that he himself would become the victim of perjury charges. However, in 1993 he submitted an affidavit detailing his intimidation and stating unequivocally that his testimony as well as those of his peers were truthful.
“I lied because I truly believed and still do believe that it was a situation where I must either '...lie or die' and at the insistence primarily of the Federal Bureau of Investigation officials who were dealing with me at that time...” – Troy Boner's Affidavit
Boner repeated the allegations that the Chief of Police Robert Wadmann and the Omaha Herald editor Harold Andersen were primary players in his abuse and the abuse of his peers. He recounts the various tactics the FBI used in his intimidation, including alluding to harm that may come about to a family member if he persisted in telling his story. Shortly after these threats, Troy's brother Shawn was found dead from a gunshot wound. The official story was a game of Russian Roulette. Troy cites this as a primary motivating factor in coming forward with the truth in his affidavit.
“But, maybe the most important thing any honest investigator should do is to ask me, Troy Boner, or any of the other kids such as Alisha or Paul Bonacci, to take polygraph, lie detector tests SIDE BY SIDE ON THE SAME QUESTIONS WITH THE PEOPLE WE ARE ACCUSING OF THESE THINGS. Example, ask Alan Baer if he shot mainline drugs into me and if he is a major drug dealer and if he had sex with me. Ask Eugene Mahoney if he met me at a bookstore in Council Bluffs and used to regularly pay me to have sex with him as a boy. Ask [redacted] to take a polygraph test on whether he is a big time drug dealer.” – Troy Boner's Affidavit (Emphasis retained)
The polygraph tests never happened. In 2004, Troy Boner entered an Omaha hospital visibly shaken and adamant that he was being targeted because of his testimony. The next day, he was found in a hospital room dead, drugged and beaten. The timing might be related to the reelection campaign of George W. Bush, who multiple victims claimed had attended Larry King's parties. Troy would round out a 'suspicious death' list that reached 15 names, including:
Troy Boner 2. Shawn Boner, Troy's brother, found shot in the head shortly after Troy was to testify before court. The official explanation of his death was ruled to be a game of 'Russian roulette'. 3. Bill Baker, associate of Larry King and alleged to be involved in the production of child pornography. 4. Gary Caradori and his eight year old son, Andrew, killed in a plane crash. 5. Newt Copple, a primary informant of Caradori, was 70 when he 'died in his sleep' but exhibited no health problems before his death. 6. Clare Howard, the secretary of Alan Baer, the wealthy Omaha businessman who was alleged to be a prime member of the child abuse ring. Also 'died in her sleep.' 7. Mike Lewis, former caregiver of victim-witness Loretta Smith. Death attributed to 'severe diabetic reaction' at the age of 32. 8. Joe Malek, associate of King, died from a gunshot which was ruled a suicide. 9. Aaron Owen, the brother of victim-witness Alisha Owen, died in his jail cell hours before Alisha was supposed to testify, ruled a suicide. 10. Charlie Rodgers, alleged sexual partner of Larry King, died of a shotgun wound to the head, ruled a suicide. 11. Bill Skoleski, Omaha police officer said to be secretly keeping a file on Larry King, died of a heart attack. 12. Kathleen Sorenson, foster parent of children who had escaped the Webb family, and outspoken activist on raising awareness of the abuse of the children she cared for. 13. Curtis Tucker, an associate of Larry King, who allegedly jumped out the window of a Holiday Inn in Omaha. 14. Harmon Tucker, a school superintendent in Omaha

Conspiracy of Silence

In 1993, a television station in Yorkshire, England traveled to Franklin to uncover the truth about the tale of child abuse in Franklin, working in tandem with the Discovery Channel. It was called “Conspiracy of Silence” and the very day it was set to air, it was pulled. No explanation has ever been given, though there are rumors that an anonymous person paid the Discovery Channel $500,000 to revoke the television rights to the film.
It would only be unofficially released two years later, when someone who helped produce the video and felt it was so important it needed to be public, leaked a rough draft from the copy room to attorney and former State Senator John DeCamp. It is now available for viewing online.
Overall, eight high profile Omaha figures would be accused of sexual assault, with testimonies corroborated between victims. They were:
Larry King 2. Robert Wadman, Omaha Chief of Police 3. Harold Anderson, retired Editor of the Omaha World-Herald 4. Alan Baer, wealthy businessman 5. Deward Finch, Superintendent of schools. 6. Peter Citron, media personality 7. Judge Theodore Carson 8. PJ Morgan, Mayor of Omaha
Of these men, only one would be convicted of child abuse, Peter Citron, on an unrelated breakout of pedophilia claims which launched a separate investigation. Before the allegations leading to Citron's arrest broke, he was threatening to sue John DeCamp for naming him as a child abuser in a memo sent to the Omaha press.
How could such a massive and orchestrated coverup take place? It involved the FBI withholding all sensitive files, including explicit videos and pictures of the relationships between King and his associates and young children. It involved a campaign of denial by the Omaha Police Department, who's chief was a primary member of the child abuse ring, and a disinformation campaign by Nebraska's media, who also had important members implicated in the ring.
It involved zealous FBI agents who were self-expressed 'good friends' with Robert Wadman. And it involved a campaign of suspicious deaths designed to silence testimony. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, it involved an American public unwilling to believe that powerful men could be implicated in child abuse, child prostitution and drug running.

2017.10.15 01:30 thefrightfulhog Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino reveals how he helped turn Harry Kane into a warrior, with the striker now mentally the world's toughest player

I've copied and pasted the text of the extract so as not to send any traffic to The Daily Mail. Enjoy.
In a brilliant new book called Brave New World by Guillem Balague, Mauricio Pochettino reveals how he turned Tottenham into one of the best teams in the Premier League — plus his superstar players and club chairman speak candidly about his revolution and ambition at White Hart Lane.
In September last year Tottenham lost their opening Champions League match at Wembley against Monaco with Pochettino extremely unhappy with the performance of the team and worried about the form of Harry Kane
There was no need for a video debrief of what to improve on from the Monaco game: the message had already been conveyed in no uncertain terms. But I did hold a meeting with some of the players to explain what we had to do and how to lead from within.
At my press conference ahead of the Premier League fixture, I reiterated what I’d said before: that we had lacked passion. I also noted that it’s a young team and it’s our job to help them grow. And suddenly more details of that tough conversation with Marcelo Bielsa [Pochettino’s former coach] right after he joined Espanyol, came flooding back to me.
‘How would you rate your performances last season?’ Marcelo asked me. That year I’d won an award for the best centre-back in the league. I said: ‘It wasn’t quite nine or 10 out of 10. I’d give myself a seven.’ ‘Listen,’ he replied, looking me straight in the eyes. ‘I’ve watched all the games back and if I’d been the coach, you wouldn’t have played, because you’ve stopped doing lots of things that you used to. You’re not the player I used to know.’
And, obviously, I reacted. I lost weight and trained harder. I was called up by the national team, signed for PSG and played in the World Cup. Such is the power of words.
At lunchtime, I discovered that Harry Kane wanted to talk to me. I avoided him; my anger hadn’t fully passed yet. And when I’d finished eating, I decided to perform a little test. I got up and went to sit in an armchair by the balcony. Let’s see who comes over, I thought.
Out of the corner of my eye, I saw Kane grab a piece of fruit from the buffet. He went back to his table. A short time later, he took his dirty plates over to the trays near the sofas. And then he sat down next to me. We ended up speaking until 3pm. I admitted to him that Bielsa had made me cry that day when he told me those home truths.
I know it was really tough for Kane at the start [when Pochettino arrived at Spurs in 2014]. We had to win over hearts, minds and bodies so that they would keep pressing and running up and down the pitch. But I refused to entertain any doubts about this being the way forward. ‘If you do it, and continue doing it, and you’re tired at the end, don’t worry,’ I told Harry and the rest of the team. ‘I’ll introduce someone else to do your job, but you can’t leave anything in the tank.’
Before I arrived, his game was a bit more back to goal, holding it up. Whereas now, he is always on the front foot, always trying to press. And if we have the ball, he has freedom to move around, not just wait for the ball to get to him. He has to be alive every minute.
This is how we’ve turned the team with the worst defensive record in the top 10 into the best defence in the division. And without playing defensive football or making many personnel changes. It is all about being brave. I love that word in English. We must display bravery at all times and, since mental preparation is crucial nowadays, we send daily messages to this effect in different formats and packaging.
I told the squad all that and then restated it differently by reminding them about when England played Spain in Alicante in November 2015. It was 0–0 at half-time, but 2–0 to Spain at the final whistle. The England internationals returned home happy, reckoning they’d given a good account of themselves in the first half.
I told them: ‘Excuse me, but I disagree, because at no point did you seek to take the initiative or be brave. Truth be told, it was clear right from the warm-up that Spain were going to win. The only question was whether they’d score in the first minute or the 90th, but the match was a foregone conclusion. Football is all about attitude.’ Kane was a frustrated guy when I arrived. He struggled to visualise his future at the club, with two or three strikers ahead of him. He was constantly being shipped out on loan. It was doubly exasperating for him as a Tottenham fan.
The club then suddenly hired an Argentinian coach and I picked up on his sense of resignation: ‘I’m sure this guy will bring in some other big-name striker.’ It was a tough few months because we didn’t click initially. He was out of form and, at 21, had the habits of a player in his thirties, the type who has been around the block. I had several stern conversations with Harry in which I had to make him understand that he had to get ready for whenever the opportunity might arise. Fame and a hefty transfer fee don’t pave the way to a starting berth, only hard work.
Harry was humble enough to listen and take advice. We put the tools in place for him to improve. The moment finally arrived for him. He played and then played again. By seeing his progress the boys coming up through the ranks realised that we kept our word.
Kane is a warrior now. He already was, but he didn’t know he had it in him. I’m not speaking about qualities or traits, but that essential mental strength to be able to stay in the elite. I believe he is the best player in the world in terms of mental strength, willpower and endeavour.
He is completely focused on his football. He has a house in Essex but spends the week at another one he owns closer to the training ground. He’s the first to arrive and the last to leave. He likes to join in when someone with different experiences in football visits. He enjoys sitting down with us, soaking it all up and participating in the discussions. At those times it is as though for him nothing else in the world exists.
And, at 23, [when the diary was written, he is now 24] he is as enthusiastic as ever: he enjoys training, he prolongs his sessions and he studies elite players, past and present. I WhatsApp him videos of goals or interesting pieces of play by other strikers. At all hours. The last one I sent was at 11pm.
Pochettino reveals how he would like to manage England one day, because he likes the ‘honest and aggressive’ mentality of English players.
If I were to be an international manager one day, I’d relish the opportunity to coach the England national team. I’ve heard that I’ve been considered for the job before, but I don’t know if there was any truth in it.
I’d be reunited with loads of familiar faces: Harry Kane, Danny Rose, Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Adam Lallana. Of the last 21 England debutants, 17 have played under me — there’s also the likes of Rickie Lambert, Jay Rodriguez, Calum Chambers, Nathaniel Clyne, Luke Shaw and Ryan Mason.
In the last four-and-a-half seasons, 11 regulars in the England squad made their international debuts under my stewardship. I remember [while at Southampton] once telling Adam Lallana how taken aback I was when I first witnessed the mentality of English players up-close — their enthusiasm in training, the sparks that fly in 50-50 challenges.
Lallana himself was once so angry with a decision during a training match that he blew his top and swore at [coach] Miki D’Agostino, (who was serving as the referee, as he often does). He subsequently apologised, but I thought to myself, ‘I want guys like that in my team.’ The English are brave, honest and aggressive, and the good ones want to add to their game.
In the 2-2 draw with Chelsea when we were battling for the title, Chelsea were playing for pride. I understand and value the fact that teams in England give their all in every single game. It’s a positive. Behaviour in the dugout, however, is another matter. Something that drove Nicola Cortese [former Southampton chairman] up the wall was the fact that there were club coaches in the England Under 18s and Under 21s set-up. Chelsea have an assistant who also works for England. He should set an example, but he certainly did no such thing that day.
The way he looked at us as they piled on the pressure, or the way he came over to our bench to celebrate Chelsea’s goals was not right. It was the complete opposite of what Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink was doing. Guus was a real gentleman, while still trying to beat us, despite the tension that arose that evening. When I saw that assistant soon after at our training ground, which the national team was using, I made my feelings very clear to him.
Dele Alli speaks about the impact that Pochettino and his assistant Jesus Perez have had on his game and the day they told him that they didn’t like him.
When I signed for Spurs in 2015 I came to have a look around the training ground, but I think he [Pochettino] was in Spain. I didn’t see him till I came back for pre-season. It was really hard and I didn’t know what he thought of me. The first proper one-on-one was with Jesus. They were speaking in Spanish and then Jesus said to me: ‘He didn’t like you...’ or similar. The boss was staring me in the eye to see how I reacted. I was speechless! He paused for like a second, and he said ‘...but now he loves you.’
The season before last, there was a bit in the media about me, when everyone was saying I was losing my temper. He pulled me into his office and talked about himself as a player, and showed me some clips of him on YouTube, very aggressive. He’s scored some goals as well, and told me I need to have a look at some so I can improve my finishing. He’s better than everyone! In his chats, he insists we all have to want it, there are no excuses for being tired and stuff. He does push everyone all the time. At Palace [in January 2016] I made it 2–1 in the last 10 minutes. I watched the goal back and saw that he had run all the way down the line and was involved in the hug. I had not realised.
Do I upset him? Yeah, all the time. [Alli laughs]. A few weeks ago we were doing some shape work and I was a bit annoyed, not at him but just with some stuff. I was walking in and looking at the floor and he told me to lift my head up and smile. Later, he pulled me into his office and talked to me about how if I’m not being happy and positive it can have an effect on everyone. I didn’t realise how much.
Harry Kane reveals how he was initially carrying too much fat to impress Pochettino and how he eventually won the manager over to become ‘the best in the world’.
That [first] pre-season [under Pochettino in 2014] I came back from holiday and I thought I was in OK shape. We had our body fat test done and I was the highest in the team, something like 18 per cent! I didn’t really want to believe it. I was like, ‘Aargh! This is wrong!’ He had his own little drills, his own fitness test — it’s called the Gacons. It’s a run that gets progressively harder.
We did a lot of them in pre-season. A lot of tactical and shape work because obviously he wanted to instil his own philosophy. I learnt a lot in that short time. Certain movements, for instance. He was a defender himself so he knows what the striker should be doing to gain an edge. Sometimes we did one-on-ones with him, Miki D’Agostino, or Jesus Perez, [assistant coaches] training with the strikers. Sometimes we were in a group, just movements around the box, or trying to get in behind. He wants to play that high intensity, he wants runners in behind... I knew straight away that if I wanted to play in his team then I would have to learn that quickly and adapt.
He likes to film everything, so if he thinks something isn’t right in training he will show me on the clips. As expected he was not afraid to give the younger players a chance. He wanted everyone on the same page. It is difficult to do what he’s done in such a short time.
I remember one early conversation. I was doing well in the Europa League, but I wasn’t getting into the Premier League team for one reason or another, and I remember getting quite frustrated. So I went to see him and he explained to me that I wasn’t doing enough. He said that my body fat was high, I wasn’t trying as hard as I could, and that was it! Maybe other managers would try to beat around the bush and try to keep players happy but he was just straight up. He said, ‘You need to do this and this and that’s why you’re not in the squad.’ And it just hit me. This is what I’ve got to do. So I took that on board and I’ve been doing OK since.
He has told me ‘You can be the best striker in the world.’ We have a joke about it now and then and, of course, when I hear him say it in the media I know he’s just trying to give me confidence. But, yeah, he’ll text me the next day to show me what he’s said publicly and then he’ll say, ‘But we need to work harder and we need to do more.’
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy on how Pochettino can be their Alex Ferguson: and why the club won’t spend big money to earn success.
We haven’t really discussed the money that is available. It’s not a secret, it will eventually be between Mauricio and me. We wouldn’t go public on it. Mauricio is very aware that firstly we have a huge capital project [Tottenham’s new stadium] that we’re embarking upon. For two seasons we have been competing for the title, but it’s unlikely that we can improve our starting XI without spending a huge sum of money and actually I don’t think that either I or Mauricio want to be in that model.
It’s a huge responsibility. We’re a big club but it’s run as a proper club, we are self-sufficient. If we make a £60million investment in a player, that means somebody else is going to be affected in our starting XI and, if we make a mistake, it’s very costly. If you look at some stats, particularly for the 2016–17 season — the best defensive record, scored more goals than any other team, best goal difference in our history, youngest squad in the Premier League — you realise we can only aim to improve the squad overall. I have always said to him that I want him to be a partner, that when he signed a contract for five years — which was a massive commitment for the club — it was on the basis that we were really going to commit to each other.
I want Mauricio to be the Sir Alex Ferguson of Tottenham Hotspur and he has the most fantastic opportunity to be that. I have confidence that he can do it. We’re so aligned in where we want to be. I’d be surprised if there wasn’t interest in Mauricio from other clubs because it means we are doing well. He’s never given me any indication that he’d like to leave. He loves the project and he once sent me a picture of Bill Nicholson — our most famous manager from years ago — holding the fronts of the gates of the stadium. They are very historic gates and we’re keeping them at the new stadium. I replied, ‘One day it is going to be you,’ because that really is what I aspire to.
I would love nothing more than Mauricio still to be our manager in 10 to 15 years’ time. To really build success you need time, longevity. It’s easy to go and become a manager at Real Madrid, for instance. It’s a fantastic club, don’t get me wrong, but winning at Tottenham Hotspur is far greater than winning at Real Madrid — and he agrees. Mauricio wants this sense of achievement, this recognition, to be the main guy. And at this club, he can be the main guy.
At some other clubs, the president is the main guy but that’s not how it is here. I’m so low key, I want him to be the main guy. Him. Sometimes it’s nice to be given something when you are not expecting it, like the Bentley I gave him as a sign of appreciation.

  • [Day 190.3 Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 3 - YouTube] PART 3-2
    • Luke Rosiak's article recap
    • Abid was listed at the Annandale house. I didn't film that one because I had battery issues. But I went to the house, spoke Spanish with the kid. I'm not going to say that's just an MS13 drug operation in those houses, but it could be: there's the connection to Mahmood,could be a couple of the houses are used for enforcement in the DC area for ratlining
    • {{ There are 196 countries in the world. His chance of being Salvadoran is 1/196 chance or 0.5% chance (ex: why wasn't he White, or S. African, or Ukrainian or Japanese?) That's why the relationship seems "to defy the odds", like the number '33' or bonesmen in the white house }}
    • I'm still not ready to say anything about drugs or anything like that
    • But given the involvement of the father and the uncle back in PK in the drug business, I certainly have my suspicions
    • Also came out in the article that Imran does receive VIP escorts in PK, so I think that lends credence to the theory that Imran is ISI as I've been saying all along.
    • I'm going to be going to Iowa to talk to Noreen Gosch, Johnny Gosch's mother--JG was the first victim in the Finder's case; Rodriguez recap
    • There may be a couple of stops along the way, at the Mayo Clinic for instance
  • [Day 190.4 Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 4 - YouTube]
    • On the beautiful bank of the Mississippi river between Minnesota and Wisconsin
    • Who is Shaheed Imran? Where have we heard that name before Sha-heed Im-ran? Hmm
    • Think of the Shah and ask him for his ID, that's how it's spelled Shahid
    • Shahid Imran was in a PK Newspaper called Dawn which is their NYT in 2009
    • There's an article about him, he's cited as a "very influential white house employee" from PK who carries great force and weight with the police force in PK, and he's bailing out his father.[][]
    • Why? Because his father has stolen the land from 12 different farmers. These farmers are trying to get Justice for how they get their land back. All his checks bounced. Where have we heard that before? Guess what? There was also a mom and all of her money was stolen and forced to put her property into the Awan's name. What's that Awan's name? That Awans' name is Ashrav Awan. Where have we heard that Ashrav Awan name before?
    • If you remember killer Mahmood? Mahmood's last name was Ashrav
    • Now the key question is, "is Ashrav Awan really Imran Awan's father?"
    • That would make more sense than having his name be Mohammed Shah
    • And who is Shahid Imran?
  • [Day 190.5. Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 5 - YouTube]
    • This is the famous Mayo Clinic. This is where the brothers came to give medical care to the poor--who couldn't afford it--then it became a worldwide attraction for the best doctors in the world--so in no way am I saying anything negative about the Mayo Clinic
    • What I'm talking about is Gulen's last 2 rings of his 7 layer organization--the covert action layer--that infiltrates organizations like the Mayo Clinic for purchase of drugs as well as the organ harvesting
    • That's where I get to the person who's in the supply chain, I gradually introduce a revenge motive or some other motivation, blackmail, etc to infiltrate into the organization
    • Minor correction: my son {{ the doctor }} had a 38, not a 34 on the MCAT, he's certainly qualified
    • There's been lots of people that've left the Gulen organization. There's 140 countries that they're in. So there's going to be a lot of defectors. They're the ones that say that Gulen has this covert action starting at layer 6 and layer 7 is his inner circle
    • They're the ones that do all these techniques, they did it in Turkey, his best friend, Erdogan, is the one saying [Gulen] is a terrorist, [Erdrogan] is the one who [has] labeled [Gulen] a FETO, a terrorist organization. [Erdrogan]'s the one that's asked for [Gulen]'s extradition
    • As far as this afternoon story Ashraf--a raft full of ashes {{ howl }}--Awan--you have to bloop every once and a while--[Ashraf Awan] being the dad and I sent out his SSN information attached to 20 different houses in the US, which I believe are MS13 safe houses.
    • I don't know why anyone who just came over for a [heart] operation would need 16 {{20}} different houses all over the United States, so I don't believe his cover story.
    • I do believe, however, that he did rob 12 farmers of their land, he killed his partner in the co-op to get that land to grow opium. And I do believe that his son, Imran, came over, and used the force of the US State Dept to get those charges dropped in PK. And if you want to read the Dawn magazine article, just search for that name Ashraf Awan[][] and the son is going to be Shahid Imran {{ <== see citations, I used search: 'site:dawn.com "ashraf awan" 12 farmers', first / only result }}
    • I did Eva Creamroller's show earlier today and now I'm going to do Jeff Wrench. Rense. {{ Who is Eva Creamroller ? }} Sorry I'm tired.
  • [Day 191 - Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 1 - YouTube]
    • Waterloo, IA headed to see Noreen Gosch
    • Keep going to Wayne Madson Reports @WMRDC
    • And I have another Awan to introduce today
    • University of Denver recap -- it seems like the seed ground for this, with Madeline Albreight with the organ harvesting
    • I interviewed a Bosnian Muslim woman last night -- she hasn't prayed since she left when she was 9 yrs old
    • I remember going there at that time, covering that story not really as a reporter, but I remember the Muslim refugees, I remember the Serbians in Czech republic were being very nasty to the Muslims. So I just want to say I've been on both sides of the conflict, I've seen refugees on both sides. War is horrible
    • What I'm objecting to is creating war and creating division for personal profit
    • One of the [researchers] mentioned that Susan Rice lived with Madeline Albreight for a long period of time--was kind of groomed from a ver young age. This is kind of, I don't want to say, a female Hamilton. But a lot of the CIA guys when they go overseas, they end up getting involved and bringing the kids back when they're young.
    • Don't know if Susan Rice is one of the CIA kids
    • BUt I do know about the gangrapes by the police forces, I do know about the Boston Bomber, about the killteam of 3, Tsarnaevs were a team of 3, and they killed their predecessors in the Boston area, and I think this is just going to come out: these teams of three.
    • I talked to the team of 3 in Ft. Wayne {{ translation: Somalians watching soccer at a cafe ?? }
    • You're going to see that Mahmood was the team of 3 in VA.
    • MS13 is just the new Chechnyans-- we just have the foreign kids, poor kids and war kids doing the murders {{ on your kids }}
    • Back to Hawkshead. I don't really have to prove modus operandi with the blackberries and laptops--the MO was already proven with Human/Weiner syncing AND we already have one laptop with Blackberry Enterprise Server on it, and so there's 4 more on the pile. Why wouldn't there be Blackberry Enterprise Server on all of those?
    • Consider the fact that one blackberry a month ago would be an anomaly
    • A pile of Blackberries would be a very big anomaly
    • If you look at the people who use a blackberry in the State Dept--with each successive person: Valerie Jared, Cheryl Mills, Philippe Reines, Huma Abedin, all these temporary employees that got brought in with USAID, Victoria Newland--it's going to be the 19 co-conspirators that were named in the FBI investigation, that were suppressed by McCabe.
    • And all we really have to do is google blackberry and the 19 people from my one page, see if they use a blackberry. By the process of elimination we can figure out who the 19 blackberry users are. There is going to be a pile of them and this is going to unlock the whole thing.
    • The more I think about this and how this auto syncing works and how that gets you off the hook for leaking classified information, you can always say 'oops they hacked me again', the more I believe the laptops and blackberries here in the Hawkshead home were the actual State Dept materials.
    • The only way that McCabe could legally say they were not in his possession would be to have a foreign intelligence service operator in posession of those. Then it's a liaison operation and you don't have to report it.
    • We're going to go to more inhabitants of the Springfield home. I'm not saying this person Tahira Ali Awan, but there were two of them, one about 40 yrs old and another 20 yrs older, using Tahira S Awan, but I do want to expose a Tahira Awan using a false SSN that was at this address.
    • So amongst all the other things we've go going on, we've got kidnapping, death threats, cellphone hacking, imprisonment, stolen inheritance, Toqueer Winfield with his 17 tickets--we haven't geolocated those, no license, no registration--we've got a lot of things going on at this home, as well as maybe when I went to the home, Jamal in that picture who was living there {{ and refused to come to the door...was "in the shower" }}
    • Here is Tahira's facebook page. This is a gal living in Edison NJ--I think she works for a plastic surgeon near Jersey City. So this might not be Tahira Awan associated with the other Awan at all. But she did have post on her FB about Turkey being crushed in blood--there is that ratline between Turkey and Pakistan. Also: no friends and only one hit for Tahira Ali Awan amongst all of Facebook, which also struck me as odd. The no friends thing threw me for a loop {{ No friends thing ... Maybe she's like me and hates facebook and/or doesn't use it a lot }} And I saw she had been in DC at the national air and space museum which is one of the only places she checked in.
    • The thing I published this morning on Twitter Truthleaks, she--Tahira Ali Awan--was born in 1977, the SSN was issued in 1968. I also have another woman named Ruth Fielder who is about 24 yrs older than her with the same SSN. So I published all the properties {{ associated with the SSN }} -- one is in Wisconsin, Massachussets, VA, and another state I can't remember
    • One of the modus operandis here is you need to get residence in a place if you're going to open up a remote office, like a pain clinic.
    • That's what's troubling here: once you get into SSN Fraud, people don't know who you are when you start getting into business dealings
    • Without the help of Andrew McCabe I felt the need to publish the SSNs--which I did and they are out there on the web, and you can see all the addresses associated
    • That's also going to bring up Turkey as you saw in the previous slide
    • Every one of these transactions has a partner -- this is the bagman Zarrab, he's the bagman for this PK to Turkey ratline for Gulen
    • You're always going to have another person on the money laundering front--he's getting the gold and then trading it with the bank, and the bank is giving him money.
    • The banker is named Atilla. What would a story be without an "Atilla"?
    • Atilla was arraigned in Fed District Court in NY/DC a couple of days ago. You'd think 'Oh that means Jeff Sessions is moving forward'
    • Well it's only because the Malaysian banker was caught and brought back to...
    • Once the money gets to Zarrab, Zarrab moves it to Malaysia.
    • The Malaysian banker was caught through Russia and brought back to Iran for Justice.
    • I'm not going to talk about his name yet.
    • But it trips the US having to pull this other guy {{Zarrab}} on charges. This guy has been sitting around for almost a year in jail in Virginia
    • It will be interesting to see if Jeff Sessions moves forward with this, because they are going to move forward with the Malaysian banker--it's always a chain
    • {{ Reddit Nodoxx rule: George reveals the SSN of Sampson Toqueer Winfield in the video }}
    • At this point it's National Security time -- we really don't have much time to wait -- we've heard a lot of plots that are in the offing, and if it is SS fraud and Vets are or Older people are being targetted; if it is nursing homes, it's really not something that can wait.
    • Even though it's only 22 veterans a day committing suicide, there's a lot more people that may be having life disruption that are falling into depression and so forth
    • Here is another name associated with the Springfield home it's "Ramesh C Jain" it's a guy in his 60s that's putting "We Are Jatts" extremist group rhetoric [on his FB] -- obvious threatening
    • {{ Now just think about how silly it would be if I said something trying to sound tough in Japanese to Samurai and Ninja peoples, Ok? So now you understand the unfortunate self-aggrandizement of these so-called 'Jatts', "Awans", et al }}
    • You're going to see a lot of the Awans are Jatts
    • The other piece that I talked about yesterday was there was this father who was bailed out by his son who had high White House connections.
    • One of the things that came out in the lawsuit that the stepmother brought on the Apr 13th dailycaller article there's a complaint filed that said Imran had a police VIP escort when he went back to PK {in 2009, not 2017 when he fled}. That would help if his uncle or father was running the federal police force, wouldn't it? So somebody had a VIP escort when they came out this "Bole di Jhuggi" (just think of 12 huggies in a bowl/ball--hopefully not used huggies) this is Faisalabad. The main capitol of PK is Lahore, Bole Di Jhuggi is going to be [West of Lahore] in eastern coastal region Jaat
    • The reason I mention the Bole Di Jhuggies is here comes Imran up the road with 6 cars with all the flags and the SS and he's coming in and meeting with this partner, Ashraf Awan.
    • Ashraf then talks to these 12 farmers into going in with his business partner and they're going to do a USAID project for growing rice or poppies or something. All these farmers go in on the deal: They all throw their lot in together. Then all of a sudden, the partner of Ashraf Awan is killed in a car accident. So guess what? Ashraf goes to the widow, and says, "hey I loaned your husband a million dollars just before he was killed, why don't you just give me all of your assets?" Where have we heard this before? Forcing the widow to give all the assets over to the partner? And she put a lot of her husband's assets in with her sons. Of course they went over and threatened the sons. All these farmers sued Ashraf. And guess what? The person from DC, the PK with all the White House Connections came in and had a long procession VIP and so forth; and of the 55M in lawsuits, they were all cleared. You can google dawn and Ashraf Awan {{no need, here it is}}[][]
    • And the person came up the lane in the VIP escort and was named "Imran"--first name was different but the last name was Imran. Maybe it was Imran, maybe it wasn't. Who knows?
    • This is Arshad Mahmood. I don't know if that was Arshad back in PK, I did find an Arshad now back there. This is "Manassas Mahmood", he's the one who hired the all the MS13 kids near his house in Woodbridge that killed this Muslim car dealer that was very prominent in the Mosque in VA. The reason why he's important is he's the registered agent of Awan Brothers INC. I felt it necessary again, if I could get some help from the FBI with A. Mccabe that would be nice, but since he is the registered agent of Awan Brothers INC I felt it neccessary to publish his SSN with all of his companies. He is wanted for murder right now. SO if you want to get this to Chesterfield police--I believe Chesterfield is a suburb of Richmond VA
    • Why would he have 12 houses? I published all the addresses. Again I say these are safe houses for MS13, Salvadoran refugees and they are bringing them in. They started in 1984 in Los Angeles with Iran-Contra, they spread to the Northeast.
    • I've got other names in Brooklyn that tie that to the Fort Wayne home. I believe the Fort Wayne home was owned by somebody in Brooklyn that safe house -- the actual arrangements were made in Brooklyn. But I'm not ready to present that yet
    • Andrew McCabe, [you can let the FBI continue harassing blameless citizens, but simply] publish the metadata "and I'll do the rest" / Obstruction of Justice Leadership REMINDER
    • Give me the 19 gmail accounts and the names associated with those accounts at the State Dept that were illegally using gmail accounts, and I'll do the rest, because I'll associate those with the blackberries and the SSIDs of the blackberries. If you really want to publish the SSIDs of the blackberries and publish the provider--it will probably be Verizon, and we can do the rest from there. You don't have to do much Mr McCabe all you have to do is publish the metadata and we'll go from there. And you can keep going and doing what you do {{ take bribes, obstruct justice, slowfoot investigations, harass citizens, take taxpayer money while squandering it by demoralizing the country by enabling criminal gangsters to run free and poison our children with terrifying drugs and/or fake medical drugs, and put college students / antiwar activists in jail for unharmful drugs }}
  • [Day 191.2. Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 2 - YouTube]
    • Here at the [USDA] National Centers for Animal Health. << 1920 Dayton Ave >>
    • This is the National Animal Disease Center with the Center for Veterinary Technologies and National Veterinary Services Laboratories
    • APHIS stands for Animal and Plant -- this big huge center looks like a nuclear science center
    • I was under the impression that mangos came here for irradiation and spraying. But maybe not!
    • I was given a media inquiry number so we'll see how it goes from there.
  • [Day 191.3 Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 3 - YouTube]
    • I'm here in Ames IA, I was just in Des Moines IA interviewing Noreen Gosch
    • I don't really want to repeat that story, there's a netflix movie about it
    • One of the things I found out though was there were 2 successive kidnappings in the area of West Des Moines about 2 yrs later and then 2 yrs after that
    • Finders case almost doing a ritual finding
    • The interesting thing about it is she was informed before the 2nd capture of a kid named Eugene Martin.
    • She went around to all the different television stations and said, "this was going to happen in the 2nd Sunday in August", and sure enough there was an abduction.
    • And then there was a 3rd abduction--a kid named Mark Allen--that got almost no press.
    • The other things about the case that kind of bleed over into the case that I'm developing in the area of VA, is all these houses--all the safe houses. I published Arshat Mahmood's houses. These are just places where MS13 can crash when they come into the country. These are places where limo drivers can get their start. Maybe there's drugs moving back and forth between them. But Noreen had said when her son was abducted, they went to a farm house for about 2 or 3 weeks, and they waited at the farm house until somebody came there and paid cash for Johnny. I started thinking, "oh my goodness I hope that these houses we've discovered and that I've published on Twitter with the SSNs for followup--I hope some of those aren't safe houses and finders houses, because they described the witnesses where they were being held and penned up for a couple of weeks until somebody could get them.
  • [Day 192.1 Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 1 - YouTube]
    • Okay day 192 the Awan Brotherhood I'm in Des Moines Iowa--Sinaloa capital of Iowa
    • I'm going to talk a little bit about Wayne Matson report @WMRDC
    • One of the viewers has contacted a writer there. A guy wrote a book called Silent Jihad I like to plug that, because it talks about intelligence networks, and people think, "oh this is an isolated incident over here and an isolated incident over there," and it is. And it's a part of a network and just like a phone network or a cell phone network.
    • So we're going to talk about the blackberries a little bit, and how the blackberries were used as sort of a subscription service--like a almost like a Bloomberg subscription service for classified information.
    • If you don't remember this is the Marine here he actually looked more of a Marine poster the actual person when he came out and stood on these steps looked more of him like a Marine than this guy {{ points to poster }}.
    • But he's reported pile of blackberries, pile of laptops, and these were Imran's this is one of Imran's twelve houses in Washington DC. And that's a lot of houses, and that's a lot of people coming and going, and we've got a lot of different people associated with all different twelve houses.
    • I've speculated in the past with all these people, and all these footprints, all these car companies, all these houses it's to reduce the footprints of people coming into the country. And I've gone back and identified people with Lightbridge Communications that were moved through here. And it's actually through an organization that Ibrahim owns--the drug dealer in Pakistan and in Mumbai India we call TechMahindra--he's the one who supports TechMahindra.
    • But anyway, the way this works is the blackberries automatically when they get in within distance of their server automatically starts syncing, so there's no overt act of actually forwarding classified information it just happens automatically this is what happened between humans blackberry and Anthony Weiner's server every night when he got home.
    • What most people don't know is that Anthony Weiner's not the goofball that everybody thinks he is. That was all a cover. * He is does have Mossad connections I'm not saying. He's Mossad, but he's a key critical link to providing the financial community in New York with up-to-date classified information. And here's how I was sold: one of the emails that came out in the Hillary-sending-emails-to-Huma was this "trusted staff email" it was kind of famous trusted staff.
    • I'm so sorry about the flickering I apologize
    • Anthony Weiner it says can Hillary says maybe one of Anthony's trusted staff could deliver the secure phone.
    • Now the reason why she was saying "can deliver a secure phone" that's like a subscription service.
    • So if one of her Wall Street speeches people that paid 500k [to attend], that was like a yearly subscription to having-- once you have Hillary's phone, then you have all the syncing of all the things that she gets, even if she quote-unquote "loses the phone", and gets another phone, all the BlackBerry servers, all the laptops sync--so if there's four different laptops, this whole network is synced--if you understand what I mean.
    • So it's almost like having your own Bloomberg server, with your own Bloomberg terminals.
    • Only in this analogy the Bloomberg terminals are Hillary's phones, Hillary's blackberries. That's why there was 12 of them because there's 12 subscriptions or 16 of them however many phones that were with the number of subscriptions, and then the number of servers for were four locations. So you have one in New York you have one in Washington DC I'm guessing there's going to be one in Brooklyn for customers down there lower Wall Street, upper wall street just for reception purposes, and the same things you can probably be true in the DC area, with you know the Maryland area, which has a lot of government installations.
    • Just guessing on those we'll have to look at all the metadata, but somebody sent me all but there's a couple of emails with all the metadata involved with the blackberries.
    • This is what leads me to believe that this definitely was the delivery mechanism, because all of these what they call blackberry internet message IDs, which is the key to decrypting all these things, were were taken out of all of her messages.
    • So there's somebody has to, specifically McCabe, had to specifically go in and defeat the password for all these messages going back and forth, and that's going to be the key to unwinding the 650,000 emails.
    • We can go into that later, but the the depth of information about the blackberries leads me to believe that the only trusted staff that Anthony Weiner--who lives in New York--would have in DC, and this is people who have access to secure phones would be the Awan brothers--there's no there's no other alternative. He doesn't have any other trusted staff. We're talking about: would need to be on in it in the Washington DC area because remember they're sending their FedExing the phone from DC.
    • So you have to have trusted staff in DC. The only people that would be would be Imran, and also Abid slash Omar. Those are the two. Not Jamal. Now Jamal might have been a runner or something then run out to the airport or whatever but he certainly wasn't the guy programming the BlackBerry servers.
    • The other piece to this and what this is kind of sometimes you have to wait for the news to catch up. This is another set of emails came out this is only about a thousand emails but 29 of the conversations we're talking about how Huma who's constantly publishing the detailed schedules of Hillary during the day, and two of the people that got them in in Brooklyn where Anthony Weiner is, is Doug band and Justin Cooper.
    • And the reason is, is that as a part of the subscription service, you would then going on the phone the con calls, so you'd have your analysts and so forth--this flickers bad I'm sorry--your analyst would go in and review whatever the topic was, and then they could choose which phone which phone calls to go in on.
    • The one that they talk about in these 29 conversations is Haiti. So all the contractors could be interested in Haiti would be in on that.
    • The investment house let's say Lehman Brothers. Not Lehman Brothers, let's say Morgan Stanley would be the one who would broker all that information out, so they would call all the people who are housing contractors, call all the people who were whatever, the investment bankers would broker all that out to their customers, but Hillary was taking 500k at the top, and letting the investment bankers do all the brokering work downstream.
    • So here's another article I found here about called "harvest tradings". The harvest tradings is talking about how there's only one mango processing center, which is here in in Iowa. It's in Iowa City, which is about three hours from here. So I'm debating whether I want to drive there, because I don't really think that's the center.
    • Sinaloa is based here in Des Moines and there is a company south of here called "Capital City Fruit", that Hillary visited two years ago, and that's where I think more of this stuff is--The funny stuff that's going on.
    • But you can see here a guy named Jawad is talking about you know we need more irradiation centers, and they want to open up one through Gulf-- the Gulfport Mississippi, and I believe this plant is open now.
    • But you're going to find that's going to be the plant that's going to be the--Where shipments are going to go missing I think they're already missed go missing
    • That little USDA office right by the Gulen school, and I think you're going to find a ghoul on school Gulen school here with a Turkish guy in the back that knows how to break down the Hawala currency from the folks that live up in these mountainous regions, where they're making when they're growing poppies.
    • Now here's a funny thing, and Daily Caller published it's two days ago: of this you know great success of a pomegranate grower in Afghanistan, and of course he's standing in a poppy field, and teaching his two children how to comb poppies.
    • So it's kind of funny in here it is USAID, and and this is going to be the USAID thing for the field of for the bowl of Huggies Bole di Juggis this is going to be the same lure same pigeon drop a lure for the field of Huggies Juggis that I talked about yesterday, so here's the Bole di Juggis out here I've this is kind of going toward Afghanistan.
    • I believe this is a key transit point--this farming land was a key transit point,and maybe a growing point.
    • I'm--they say traveling to PK is very dangerous {{ NO!! }}, I might still do that, I haven't made my mind up about that. But this is this is the rhetoric you know from the people that lived in Imran's house in the Lorton area so I have to take them at their word that they're serious about breaking bones and so forth not hearts.
    • Again here we only had a thousand of the 650 thousand emails and what I've been predicting all along about there being pay-to-play, and in these emails, and what the New York police detective said has been true:
    • A thousand emails came out, and we saw 29 pay-to-play of enabling a subscription service basically.
    • Enabling Doug Band and Justin Cooper to just sell conference call schedules with reckless abandon here.
    • Again the need to publish the metadata to get credibility back to the FBI
    • Chuck Grassley is going to be interviewing Jim Comey today in Washington DC, and hopefully this subject of Andrew McCabe not declaring the $675,000--clearly I saw on the in integrity far more the ethics form over--it says specifically if you have a your wife or son or anyone related to you is received over $200, a $200 gift you must declare it. I think six hundred seventy five thousand is more than two hundred.
    • So I think he should have declared it again "no grand juries, no subpoenas, no court orders, immunity for all the co-conspirators, letting the co-conspirators in on the interview, I mean this is crazy things the FBI never does"-- That was the number three at the FBI in 1995 that said that: Kallstrom.
    • I believe Andrew McCabe is the one who directed Imran Awan to store those blackberries as a Ready Reserve along with the blackberry enterprise servers, and shipped them to locations all over the country--wherever this Bloomberg investment service was I believe is where those got shipped.
    • I think this is all going to come out now that we're getting down to the metadata level at the blackberries, because every electronic devices are great for leaving footprints, and all of its discoverable.
    • So that's it for this morning.
    • I'm going to be going out to Capitol City fruit I believe which yeah I've been already warned it's Sinaloa already had a lot of people around here you know kicking my tires so we'll see what happens
  • [Day 192.2 Hillary's Hackers, Awan Brothers Saga Deepens, Part 2 - YouTube]
    • Okay Day 192 part 2 This is kind of a follow up some late-breaking news it has occurred.
    • The first thing is Donald Trump -- Hillary was trying to say that it's Jim Comey that won the election for her, and Trump just tweeted out Jim Comey is the best friend that Hillary Clinton ever had.
    • The news that Hillary was under a Grand Jury investigation about a week before the election never came out that was held, and suppressed, by Andrew McCabe.
    • But now Judicial Watch's emails that have come up today, show that clearly there was a Grand Jury meeting, and I'm going to show specifically what it was about.
    • I said this morning it was about the blackberry emails, before I saw the note. Now I have official confirmation that I said it was about the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
    • Again this is information that's already been subpoenaed in 2015 by Judicial Watch, so this is already in process two years down the road, and we're starting to see the initial benefits of it now.
    • So again give to Judicial Watch--I don't want any money. This is now can just be added to the Judicial Watch.
    • As you can see here I talked about you know Hillary talking about Anthony Weiner's trusted staff. You read that right. Anthony Weiner's trusted staff in handling classified top-secret classified devices, like secure phones, like her phone.
    • The only thing that would make sense there would be Anthony Weiner being a protege of Chuck Schumer, and a protege of the Chuck Schumer Wall Street kind of connections.
    • That would be a phone from in here--it says clearly send a FedEx secure cell phone from Anthony's DC staff.
    • But here it says in the actual listing from Judicial Watch it says Priestap--who is the special agent--declared under penalty of perjury, that the FBI obtained a Grand Jury subpoena related to the blackberry email accounts.
    • Now blackberry email accounts go along with BlackBerry servers, and BlackBerry Enterprise servers.
    • So they're in the indictment right there.
    • Again it's the nineteen mail accounts.
    • I don't know how many were in the pile, I'm guessing five or six. As new people were added at the State Department they would send out new phones.
    • But again these all had the ability to sync, so that the classified information was available to be made available, so I don't think it's just the Wall Street--now I think it's far beyond just the Wall Street.
    • I think they're going to--you're going to find wherever you wanted to sell the subscription service of phones going to go so that's I think you get to the 17 number I think the Wall Street firms was only about 12, but I have to check this cross-check this.
    • But here's Trump's tweet: "FBI director Comey was the best thing that ever happened to Hillary"
    • Now do I think this is important from a investigative point of view no a lot of the data is already here in these presentations but this is a key mind shift by Trump that he realizes that Comey is not on his side.
    • That Andrew McCabe's not on his side.
    • That he's the one that's been kind of taking on him taking him out of the kneecaps, and now I think it's crystallizing exactly the mechanics down to the actual mechanics of the ratline.
    • This is the information rat line so, and Trump still smarting from being blamed you know by the Russians which was a kind of a cockamamie cover story right from the beginning.
    • And it was just as I said it almost was Chuck Schumer and Adam Schiff pulling the house down on the House Democrats.
    • So I think that's what's coming I'll update everyone a little bit later this afternoon on the Comey testimony today.
    • I don't expect much to come of it. I think it'll be mostly a shit-charade, but I just would remind everybody I just looked at the UN DOS report for drugs overseas operations.
    • Opium level production--we're studying another 5,000 troops to Afghanistan so it's now 16 year war. Opium levels are the highest production ever so that's part two
