    I completely agree with it. It takes all of the guesswork out of it. If it hits any part of your arm, it's a hand ball. You don't see the T'hams and the ManUs of the game get call after call.

    Mm, there is that. I'd only be good with that zero tolerance policy if it applied to ALL handballs in the area, and not just to goals. Take all the ambiguity out of it for the same reason.

    Let's see. A goal by a LB as good as you will ever see, a stonewall pen that wasn't called, some pretty bad defending by Newcastle. Pretty entertaining game. Even with the poor defending at times, if Newcastle play like that, there will be in the top half of the table.

    Yeah, that was a weird one. Strange thing is, in the first half, Newcastle beat themselves--Liverpool had nothing going until the Mags gave it to them. Krafth, Dubravka (and Lascelles--that was definitely a penalty), for shame! After that, it was all over but the crying.

    I can't see anyone but Liverpool winning the league this year. Newcastle DESPERATELY need their injured players back. But I'm feeling kinda okay right now. The Brighton game will be the big test.

    All that (very minimal amount of) trash talk for a 0-0 draw

    **** Leicester city and **** the referees. Apparently going in studs-up, gouging a player's leg open, and damaging ligaments is perfectly fine and nothing more than a yellow card. But, dear me, if you take the BALL, well, that's a horror challenge and a straight red card.

    ******* joke. I hope Leicester's players get injured one after the other, that none of the players that do it see a card, and that Leicester City never take another point. They are my new #1 hated team. I thought only the traditional top 6 sides were supposed to get preferential treatment.

    Oh, and **** Steve Bruce while we're at it. If he isn't fired and a proper manager brought in, that's Newcastle down.

    What an excellent sports weekend! The Cards win, the Steelers lose, and Newcastle catch Man U at the perfect time. And, since I won at the blackjack table, I put a silly bet on Newcastle to win. 20 bucks won me 90 at the sports book. Sweet!

    Haha, awesome. Hopefully they still suck after the break when Liverpool play them.

    Big win over the weekend. I only got to see ten minutes or so, but lucky for me it was during the first goal.

    Funny. It seems like the fans are warming up to Bruce now after wanting to run him out of town before he ever got started.

    Not me. How is he getting even a modicum of success? Reverting to the exact same tactics Benitez used. Every time he tries to change it, it falls apart. Hayden once screamed at the sidelines "It's not effing working!" when Brucie tried to implement his own "tactics." By "tactics," I mean that he infamously once claimed he doesn't use them.

    HUGE win for Newcastle today. Started out slow and sloppy. Gave up a really bad set piece goal--credit to Bournemouth for the play design, but that can't be defended so poorly. Still, credit to the team for heart, grit, and determination. Great Yedlin goal, good scrappy 2nd goal in the 2nd half. The front 3 couldn't score if a debutante dropped her panties, hoisted her skirts, and bent over in front of each of them, but a win's a win.
