    Random Streaming Question

    Searched all over the forums, couldn't see anyone discussing it, but curious if anyone watches the games on FS Southeast via Sling/Vue services. It appears that they have both, but I just activated the free trial of Vue and I am receiving FS Southwest (aka Mavs tonight) instead of the Grizzlies game. It's obviously based on zip code, but being in north MS I should be getting Southeast. Anywho, just curious if anyone else has experience with these streaming services. Thanks in advance. Go Grizz.

    Random Streaming Question

    Been a while! Haven't stopped following Grizz though! Just finished grad school and entered real world last few years. Shockingly having a job gets in way of posting as frequently here! Grad school was great for Grizz posting. Also, a lot less to B&M about the last few years for sure! An update for anyone interested in cord cutting: 1) Using VUE you are supposed to get FS Southeast. However, in Oxford I get Southwest. Sony says Fox makes that call and it changes what you get with some relative frequency. They suggested I contact Fox and let them know that I don't care to watch the Mavs. BUT! With a Vue log-in you can use your AppleTV or Amazon FireTV (or phone or whatever) to download and use the FOX Sports-To-Go app which will allow you to watch Grizz games. I was not blacked out via this method. Stream quality was quite nice, and since it was election night I am sure there was quite a load on my network connection, so I feel like it should be a solid way to watch games going forward. 2) On Sling, with the blue package (I think) you get a bunch of FS network alternates, one of which is the Grizz. Watched this feed for a few minutes and it was also of high quality. Overall review: To get both Sling packages (which I would need) it is $40 and includes Grizz capabilities. To get the package I want for Vue (the 70+ channel package, which includes ESPNs/AMC/FX/Fox Sports regional/SEC) it is $35. You will have to, for now, watch Grizz through Fox Sports-To-Go app. I have failed to mention the main decision maker for me: DVR capabilities. Sling offers none, well...none that are easy. Vue offers a cloud based DVR that should be more than sufficient for me. I only DVR 3-4 shows that I know I will miss each week. Most everything is available on-demand these days, so DVR use is much lower, but still nice to have it. Another aside: this is all based on my zip code. From what I gather talking to Sony help line, being in one zip code vs one next door can cause a LOT of variance, some of it inexplicable geographically. They both offer free 7 day trials, so if you are considering it I would encourage you to plan for a week in which grizz have some games to test it out. Also, another note: Vue, to me at least, is far more streamlined than Sling and seems more intuitive. Also, you can use it on the PS3 or PS4 if you already have one of those.

    Unofficial Offseason Moves/Needs Thread

    I think there has been a MASSIVE change in opinion as far as OJ goes. I think he needs to be kept and honestly Sam Young could be dealt for an equally scrubby big. I don't wanna give away OJ for McRoberts and a first.

    I only check the boards once a day or so to make sure I am not missing any big news during the off-season. I mean, we can only read SO many PMI trade ideas!! Having said that, I am as excited about this Grizz season as I have been in about 5 years. I only made the trip to about 4 or 5 games last year, hoping to have reason to make that 10+ this year.

    first baskeball jersey I ever owned was a silver #55 Ren Tigers jersey. Not sure where/when I got it but I remember wearing it to the tomb of doom many times back in the day to watch Ren hopefully beat down the Bearcats.

    I think its been a story with no legs, other than football bloggers in the summer with too little to write about. The SEC has no interest in expanding. I have a good friend who works in the AD here at Ole Miss and they tell me that expansion is just a joke and not be taken serious by anyone around the SEC. The commish's and AD's wont come and say its BC b/c they have to be so PC about everything, but seriously, there is not THAT much more money to be made. A conference like the SEC already has a perfect setup. Short of adding some power teams like Texas or Oklahoma from the Big 12, or FSU/Miami/Ga. Tech from the ACC why would the SEC be interested in adding some second tier teams like Texas A&M and Mizzou? All it will do is dillute their payouts come years end. No way the current teams would allow the addition of teams like that. Like I said, this all started b/c the Big Ten(11) wants to add one team, which is likely to happen, all this drastic super realignment will never happen.

    Vilma promptly went to the Saints and tackled everything in sight, seriously I think he broke the Saints season tackle record.

    this is what i got in my mock. we had 4 reals and the rest comps, i think there were 10 of us. the comps were surprisingly competitive bidders, but rarely overpaid than the estimated value, maybe by one or two, but not much. Oh and for the record i wouldnt advise going after lebron AND kobe, but i manged to do it and still wind up with a decent team i think. I got freaking tmac for 6 bucks!!!?? PG Mike Conley 1 SG Kobe Bryant 49 SF LeBron James 47 PF Pau Gasol 20 C Al Jefferson 22 G O.J. Mayo 1 F Peja Stojakovic 15 UTIL Chris Kaman 11 UTIL Andrew Bynum 12 UTIL Stephen Jackson 14 BE Tracy McGrady 6 BE Marc Gasol 1 BE Beno Udrih 1 Total: 200.0 Remaining: 60.0 I think that would be a formidable fantasy team. I am weak at PG with just conley, i would prob tried to trade one of my many bigs for a pg. Like i said ealier, the key in this whole thing is the nomination process. I hope i get first nomination, i will so put like jake tsakalidis up.

    wow this is gonna be a fun draft. the whole nominating thing will make it wild. how you decide to nominate is key. For example i am doing one and i nominated rudy early on and got him for a steal b/c everybody was focused on higher value players. Should be way more interesting than a traditional draft.

    ha i wanted to take leinhart, guess thats why i am not a GM. seriously, i kind of feel bad for VY. He has show flashes of good-ness, but this recent episode is gonna be hard to shake, now with kerry collins coming in the way he has, eh, doesnt help. And as a fan of the titans i am ****** b/c they will get next to nothign for him in return b/c he is damaged goods at this point. And what do we do? Trade him, pick up another young QB to be the starter when kerry collins dies on the field??

    oh you asked for it, now marc bulger will throw for 500 yards and 6 tds!!!! NFC east = beast Will the giants, cowobys and redskins all win 12 games???

    Giants and Titans both win, woot woot. Giants dominated from the get go against the hapless seahawks, man they really suck. titans won a hard fought game, led by kerry collins coming up huge down the stretch and leading an 80 yard drive against one of the best D's in the game. Hopefully the D can kiss and make up after fighting on the field, this game was crazy. I think the NFL sent a message to refs to just throw flags at every possible chance b/c there were SOOOOO many flags thrown.

    the tide is for real. they demolish georgia, absolutley tore apart. where is birdz??? how bout dem broncos??!! and how about those rebs, nothing better than watching tebow cry and uban crybaby myer try and say that pat block was against rules, only to have to eat his words the next day after the replay shows that it was indeed, very much so legal. F the gators.

    yeah PMI, its the same situation, they go back after the whistle is blown on those plays, i thought it was total BS too. New England doesnt have the best defense in the league, not even close. For that, look closer to the south, a few miles east of memphis down i-40, there you will find the best defense in the league. Giants are 3-0 after barely beating the bungles, oh well, its a W, thats all that counts. War your broncos should give sean peyton a game ball after he handed them the game, and i thought denvers secondary was supposed to be good. Drew brees lit them up, he was bascially like 456-458 with 4,000 yards and on two short yardage plays the saints busted it up the middle for no gain, resulting in the longer field goal they missed....the saints players on the sideline were like WTF??!!! drew brees probably wanted to deck peyton....

    ha, not looking too bad there PMI, even with the qb from nowhere!! Pwillie is looking like he could be a serious multiple probowl type anchor for them on D.

    indeed that guy from SP did that. They pummeled my old school a few weeks ago, 30 something to zip. Used to be a big game for us when i was there, but been a few years since it was competitive, as is the case with most everybody and SP save for a few big schools. That program is crazy. I agree about the whistle thing, its a sticky situation, the best thing is for the refs to just swallow the whistle for the most p9art and lets plays finish out.

    i'm sorry, in live speed there is NO WAY that looks like a FORWARD PASS!!! it just doesnt. Now, do i think eddy muscles is crooked? No, i dont blame him, i blame the NFL. Replay needs to be adjusted. In that situation, and for example, in the situation in the eagle-cowboys game last night, if a fumble is CLEARLY recorvered by the other team, as it was in both situations, then the ball should be rewarded to them. I dont think on a play like either of those its hard to tell that the opposing team would have come up with the ball. This needs to be allowed b/c other wise it ends up making the refs have to admit they were wrong, but have nothing they can do about it. And man, what a dumb play by the eagles guy last night. Should have been cowboys ball in that situation as pacman was the ony guy remotely close to get the ball.

    whatever, that was a crazy game, i was watching at the gym, left after the chargers scored, got home, saw broncos won, knew you would be on here talking smack!!! That was a good game, their 2nd game this year will be awesome. Cutler and Rivers both played well. Giants and Titans win again, both convincing, especially giants. GO my teams. My other half-team saints returned to saints of old form and totally blew an easy win, i am so glad shockey is gone from the giants, that guy is hilarious, he gets tackled and fumbles the ball and he yells at teamates about it for the rest of the game as if they had something to do with him not securing the ball better....

    so some pretty good games this week. i think chargers-broncos is probably the bet, and i expect chargers to beat down like last year, what was it like combined 60-0 or something like that?? keep talking champ. Tenn has a big game @cinc. The bungels will be looking to bounce back, and TN will have an alcoholic running the ship, should be fun to watch. And all of the sudden chicago carolina is a game to watch, although i expect el hommey to start blowing per usual. Then jets-pats, and then to top it all off eagles cowboys on MNF, man i am glad football is here and i dont have to watch anymore baseball.

    what do the panthers have to do with this?? The panthers are a good team, and the chargers should have one, they lost, but no fault to rivers. their D couldnt keep them out of the endzone and fell asleep on the last play. The broncos are gonna get rolled this weekend. Chargers do not equal shaz-tastic raiders. The raiders are a complete joke of a team. DeAngelo Hall has been quite over rated for a few years now, qb's in the nfc south were sad to see him go.

    i aint worried about it. we have kerry collins. Also, i will just wait for phillip rivers to B slap cutler back in his place whenever they play again.
