    It should be referred to as a "Defensive set".
    Speaking of basketball at least in the pros.... the game revolving around the 3 point shot has ruined it

    Can we PLEASE retire the word “trickeration” in college football? It stopped being cute or clever at least a decade ago.

    "Hang time". There is no such thing.

    "We". I feel strong enough about the greed of owners and the lack of awareness among players that their jobs literally are described as PLAYING, that I cannot consider myself part of the team.

    The alliance of professional teams with online betting. It just doesn't feel right that a local book cannot exist at the corner bar any more.

    I'd say my biggest pet peeve is that a family of modest income cannot afford to go to a game.

    Announcers constantly trying to be funny. Who is this for? Is it for non fans. I want the game analysis not your comedy material. It’s worse during pre and post games or the NFL Live or Good Morning Football. Those cringy Boomer and Cowher back and forth. Open mic and comedy def jam amateur hour.
