Every seat in the stadium has a good view

The good news is that there's the entire rest of the stadium for people who don't want beer thrown. I'm sure there are some empty seats in a calmer area if you want.

I mean come on, it's not like we're Orlando. We respect the field and the teams but it's the supports section bro, it's supposed to be rowdy.

Is that the team that gets the most "fair play"s said by British announcers during games?

Is there any browser that forces the user to use one tab only? Or better, is there any way to do this on Chrome?

But then how will I have 73 tabs open?

Is this your old thermostat or new one? If it's your new one did you take a picture of how the old one looked?

This is the old one. Trying to replace with Nest 3rd Gen. House was built in 2016 so I was a DA and didn’t even check for compatibility.

Oh okay, well I can tell you from experience that Nest support is super helpful when it comes to this

That doesn't sound the expensive. What weird football manager rule am I missing?

If the player in question does not, not withstanding any transfers, plays on average 27.5 games per season (+- 6 yellow cards but could be limited to 2 red cards) and does not get transferred before or up to or after said expiration date, he has the opportunity to make an additional 75% of his up front transfer fee in form of, but not limited to, Home Depot gift cards. These said gift cards will however only be redeemable in the metropolitan city of Atlanta stores as stated on the most recent census. If said player becomes a GAM during the first 2.3 years of his contract, the TAM of the team gets reduced by $10,000 for every post he makes on Instagram. Shirtless posts reduce the team's TAM by $15,000. So overall FLIMx{F(LAM)}=GAM/TAM(2.3). Pretty simple actually.

Will likely happen in Qatar as well. Ridiculous that FIFA has allowed shitty places like this to host.

Yep and people talk shit about the US hosting. Having it in the US pretty much guarantees a safe place for all fans (and teams) no matter their color, nationality, gender, or sexual preference.

...but somehow people think Morocco was a better choice.

Lol well of course every city has it's bad neighborhoods, but I can tell you that gay/race hate would never happen anywhere near the main city center/stadiums in any major city in the US, including St Louis or New Orleans. Both of which close down their main streets to hold gay pride parades regularaly.

Other countries like to make fun of the US a lot, but ya'll don't realize how united we are when it comes to stuff like this. Our country's history basically includes everyone from around the world moving here at the same time, then hating each other for a few hundred years until everyone got along once and for all. Yes, we have our problems-a lot of the violence is gang on gang violence and we need stricter gun laws, but we are truly a safe haven for everyone.

You’re on a slippery slope when you take the holier-than-thou approach to assessing morality of professional athletes

see more

Well it's a good thing I'm not a role model for millions of children and that I never signed a contract with my employer stating that I'd conduct myself in a certain way because their brand and sponsorships depend on it.

Are you implying that professional athletes are paid to be role models for millions of children and are contractually obligated to be held to higher moral standards than the rest of society?

Just because they are really good at sports and are well paid doesn’t automatically make them role models.

see more

You're right and that's not necessarily what I'm implying. I mean that a team is allowed to cut a player regardless of their on-field success because of off the field issues.

It's not in their contract that they have to be good role models, but teams don't want to be in the spotlight because of the bad ones.

Good idea, more teams should try the "four Hall of Famers on the same team" trick

And also a Hall of Really Good, one of the best center fielders of all time.

These comparisons to the 90s Braves don't make much sense to me yet. I mean, our prospects/young players haven't even proven themselves. Just trying to play devil's advocate here as a rational Braves fan, but if we're going off the "blueprint" that the 90s Braves had, what year would that put us in now? 1988, 1989? Except with no guarantee that any run even happens.

I might sound a little harsh, but I'd like some results for longer than a quarter of a season before I feel the rebuild is over.

Every time I try to pair my S9 plus (US version, unlocked) I get this error message: "The Samsung Flow app must be opened on the paired device."

Here's a screenshot

I definitely have the app opened on both devices. And they are pairing with each other successfully because after the error message it makes me unpair.

I've tried reinstalling the app on both devices, restarting both devices, and installed the samsung flow windows driver.

If you have the Fitbit app. Remove it and it will work. I had the same exact issue and tried the other solutions posted online without any luck. I saw Samsungs reply to someone about removing Fitbit application. I tried it and it instantly worked for me

Interesting. I don't have the Fitbit app but now I'm wondering if it's another app on my phone that's causing the issue. Thanks.

Thanks. It turned out that my root cause is that my older computer doesn't support Windows Hello, and more importantly, doesn't support two-factor authentication. Here's my research if it helps anyone:

For my PC, I originally thought the issue was that it doesn't have a Trusted Platform Module chip, which it doesn't. However, I saw this...

https://www.sammobile.com/2017/10/30/samsung-flow-windows-10-now-works-without-trusted-platform-module/

...which indicates later versions of Flow stopped requiring it.

I then learned that if "Allow Companion device for secondary authentication" is disabled, device will not successfully register. Here's the instructions to fix that. gpedit.msc doesn't come with Windows Home by default; I found some link to install it but can't find it now.

  1. Select search box on the Windows task bar
  2. Enter "gpedit.msc"
  3. Go to the Local Computer Policy > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Microsoft Secondary Authentication Factor > Allow Companion device for secondary authentication
  4. Double-click the Allow Companion device for secondary authentication
  5. Select Enabled
  6. Select search box on the Windows task bar
  7. Enter “gpupdate /force”
  8. Reboot your Tablet/PC

In my situation, I don't have this "Allow Companion device for secondary authentication" at all. Additionally, my computer doesn't support two-step authentication. Looking at these steps to enable it...

https://www.technorms.com/46293/enable-microsoft-two-step-authentication-in-windows-10

...my computer clearly indicated it doesn't support Windows Hello, which is needed for this authentication.

That's strange, so it should technically be working for you.

I actually saw that response too and enabled that a few weeks ago but it didn't help.

Very brave posting this in r/soccer

I mean, people want to hate for some reason and that's okay. I think it's an interesting story.

Atlanta United is doing it's part to change the MLS for the better, we've grown our fanbase and developed our own culture pretty organically, sell out a 74k stadium regularly, are trying to grow young exciting players before they go to Europe, .... fuck us?

What exactly is your culture may I ask?

This is just one example but it's a good watch if you haven't seen it. Was posted here a while back.

I think a lot of people see ATL in the MLS with a rich owner and just assume we're "plastic" but I personally don't think that's true.

Good thing that Tim Howard is able to spend his time getting ass tats and playing for the 2 win Rapids right now instead of preparing for the World Cup.

I’m pretty sure Barco lives at the Battery.

This is true

Delete this and stop embarrassing yourself

Love how the keeper looked like he was about to blame his teammates and then realized that he literally didn't move.

Ambrose is playing great. Those were 2 passes to Miggy that Garza could not have made

Did you watch the Warriors in the second half just now? Their comeback was made by actually making 3s, and on a handful of a few key possessions either trading a 3 for a 2, or a 3 for a 1 foul shot.

I think you have a point though. Both teams (Rockets and Celtics) seemed flustered when their opposition started coming back and tried getting back their lead with stupid 3s. I think good shooting will always prevail obviously, and it's much better to risk those types of shots when building a lead rather then trying to fix everything.

Something that is a weird dynamic to VAR for me is the "VAR referee". As viewers of the game we can see every variable- what happened in the play, the referee (where he was on the pitch, etc), who from the teams is complaining to the referee.

The only thing we don't know about is what the VAR referee is saying to the main ref in his ear. I believe this is a slippery slope and I don't think the VAR referee's communication with the main ref is consistent, fair, and conservative enough. Sometimes he tells the ref to look at plays that he thought were fouls that the ref missed. But sometimes he doesn't. And did the ref "miss" the call, or was it a judgment call? Does the VAR ref have more power because he can see it on a screen? Sometimes it seems like yes and sometimes no.

I think the glaring issue here is the consistency of when VAR is used. And yes, I'm an ATL United fan and we've had a few goals taken away by VAR. But I've seen it used inconsistently in every single other game I've watched too.

That is a pretty white crowd given Atlanta's demographics. It this a good representation of their fans or is it just this image?

see more

If you look around their necks a lot of them have season ticket badges on, so this is probably a lower sideline section full of more wealthy people (not trying to bring race into this).

I'd say that photo isn't really a great representation of the fans. Because if you combine the diversity of Atlanta with soccer being the most widely loved sport in the world, an ATL United game is probably one of the most ethnically diverse places on earth. The supporters section really shows that off.

If you are more interested in this topic and haven't seen this () video, I recommend watching it.

If it bothers you that much, I'm sure there's an empty seat somewhere in a section without flags.
