2023.05.28 15:50 foheverything My finest moment in Dota
I was playing single draft to lift ban. As a jugg, I was doing okay. My team was getting stomped by void spirit because Rubick and Huskar were feeding him, so I had to keep helping my team bounce back. Then Rubick started shit talking to me that I wasn't farming fast enough (Mjolner + Yasha by 30 min) and called me noob and all that. I fired back that he's been feeding Void like an idiot and this went back and forth until I decided to mute him to avoid distractions.
We won the game but I didn't play that big of a role. I did decent. Rubick didn't do anything. Had no item disable and barely knew how to use ult.
Next game, I matched up with the same guy but this time in opposite teams. As luck would have it, I drafted Enchantress - my favorite support hero. I went mid and kept my farming well while pushing away Razor. In top lane, the same guy was stomping with Grimstroke. Double kill in first minute and Sven got himself 2 kills.
So at lvl 7, I went top and killed Sven. At lvl 10, I went top again and killed both Sven and Grim. Then I pretty much roamed the map and dominated the game. My teammates used the opportunity to scale nicely and backed me up well. This time I had a good Rubick on my team who stole Wyvern's heal and kept me alive in sticky situations. Bloodseeker was top but caught up fast thanks to all the kills I assisted him with. It was a bloodbath.
By the end, I had 20-1-17 score and the game ended in 40 minutes. I laughed at that guy so hard as he pitifully attempted to mock my rank.
That was my finest Dota 2 moment.

2023.05.28 15:33 HeronSouth The sponsor in Sponsor Tripped
Just think of what business is gonna sponsor Lynn's sports team(s). It said it's about them enjoying perks from it, but nothing about what this business is. I can see it as them being drafted into advertising which may involve wearing things and doing things in them maybe even doing game wearing them so unless there's some charm to wearing them like the breeze with cheerleader skirts they may be quite bothered/embarrassed with it. Or maybe it's a food/drink manufacturing company and the product(s) has a health violation so it'll either be about them getting food poisoning or hiding it to keep having the perks.

Edit: It's not political people, it's about a card game lol.
Hey guys, huge fan of Magic the Gathering. I have played Arena quite a bit and played paper in person a few times. Mostly commander, interested in Standard, and I always enjoy draft formats too.
I've played with one of my old coworkers and his group, and this is going to sound dumb considering the game we're playing, but they are too "nerdy" for me. Now, there is nothing wrong with being nerdy at all. I enjoy my time hanging out with my coworkers group. They're funny and we've had some good times. My only thing is I feel like I'm not able to connect or add anything to the conversation. I kinda just sit there and chuckle at anime jokes that I have no context on lol. MTG is like the only "nerdy" thing about me.
So I'm just curious if there's anyone out there who has a love for MTG but also enjoys MTBing, sports, the outdoors (I'm a hikebackpackebirder), public lands, international travel, non controversial conversation, and just general current events convo.
Hopefully y'all understand where I'm coming from and understand I'm not being judgemental. It's really just about getting this introvert more comfortable in a group setting!

2023.05.28 14:27 AstronautPuzzled6733 What is the Best Live TV Streaming Service?
People are increasingly ditching cable for live TV streaming services that provide similar experiences without breaking their budgets. Some services even offer live shows at reduced rates!
DirectV Stream (formerly AT&T TV) is an ideal option for sports fans, though its subscription costs can be expensive. Like its satellite television counterpart, DIRECTV STREAM looks and operates similarly, while offering more Regional Sports Networks than other services.
Sling TV is a live streaming service offering multiple channels and add-ons, such as sports and news networks. Users can customize their subscriptions and save money through these add-ons; making Sling TV one of the more cost-effective cord-cutting options. In addition to popular channels, it also provides local content through an HD antenna in most markets and its user interface is intuitive for easy navigation.
Sling offers three plans - Orange (ESPN and Fox Sports), Blue (MSNBC and TLC), and Sports Extra bundle for NFL/NHL fans; Cloud DVR is included for recording 50 hours of shows, while an upgrade to DVR Plus adds another 5GB storage.
Sling TV is an ideal solution for anyone who's looking to cut the cord without losing their favorite shows, thanks to its affordable prices and compatibility with multiple devices. Though its streaming quality might not match other services, Sling still offers access to many channels at a low price point and makes an attractive alternative option when trying to reduce cable bills without giving up access to favorite programs.
YouTube TV is the new go-to solution for those seeking to cut the cord and cancel their cable subscriptions. Since 2017, this streaming service has offered 85+ channels that cover major networks, niche channels and local broadcasters; plus most sports channels found in cable packages.
YouTube TV stands apart from similar services by not requiring contracts and offering an unrestricted cloud DVR that lets you record up to nine months worth of shows and movies - an advantage over many competitors that limit how much space can be utilized on their DVRs.
Service also beats the competition with an extensive array of news channels such as CNBC, CNN, HLN and MSNBC; plus family-oriented channels like Disney Channel, Cartoon Network and Nick Jr.
YouTube TV provides an impressive lineup of local channels in each region, providing at least four for most people. While not offering all the RSNs available with DIRECTV STREAM or fuboTV (FOX regional sports channels and sometimes YES/NESN in some locations). YouTube TV has recently also added ESPN Multiview functionality which lets viewers watch up to four live games at one time on one screen.
FuboTV is an ideal solution for those seeking to cut cable. Offering an expansive library of channels and working smoothly across most devices, FuboTV does an exceptional job covering popular networks - although you might miss a few individually desired channels from time to time.
FuboTV provides several plans, with its base Pro plan starting at $75 a month and including access to over 145 channels such as local ABC, CBS and Fox stations in supported markets as well as popular cable networks like FX, HGTV Food Network Comedy Central. Plus it includes up to 1,000 hours of cloud DVR storage space as well as streaming on up to 10 screens at home or two outside your network - this plan offers true convenience!
This service's major advantage lies in its sports offerings. Fox Sports and ESPN support this option as well as multiple regional sports networks; however, basketball or baseball fans might find better options elsewhere.
FuboTV does have some drawbacks, however. First and foremost is its limited 4K support; though not a deal-breaker, this could become an issue if using this service with high-definition TVs. Furthermore, FuboTV doesn't support 5.1 surround sound streaming or recording which could prove an issue considering its focus on sports programming.
Philo may be new to live streaming, but its backing includes some of the biggest names in entertainment. Offering an easy, low-cost package with 61 channels for $20 a month; local channels and sports can be added with add-ons at additional costs; Philo also boasts an on-demand library filled with the most recent shows from each network included in its bundle.
Philo offers a cloud DVR with unlimited storage, providing users with the option to record multiple shows simultaneously and delete recordings before 30 days have passed. However, unlike its rivals in live-streaming services such as Hulu or Netflix, its DVR doesn't allow subscribers to delete recordings before this deadline has passed - though an option will eventually allow subscribers to save their favorite programs up to an entire year before deletion takes place.
Philo offers a free trial if you're curious to experience its service, supporting various devices and platforms such as Roku, Apple TV and desktop browsers on Mac or Windows as well as having a mobile app so that viewers can watch anywhere at any time. Although its streaming quality isn't quite as impressive as competitors' offerings, Philo makes for an affordable yet simple option - perfect for cord-cutters looking to cut their cable subscription bill!

FAQ I live in Belize/Canada/Nicaragua/USA, why are you posting on a Saturday?!
Because I'm writing this from Europe in the future where it's already Sunday. Timezones be crazy. Why are there a bunch of non-board games in the board game list?
Because the Tabletop games category on Kickstarter includes anything remotely related to board games and sometimes things slip through my filters. Why is this future award winning board game and literal saviour of humanity missing from your list?
Sometimes my filters get a bit overzealous and discard actually valid projects. If you feel something is missing for this reason, leave a comment and I'll add it (maybe). Can I donate all my money to you?
No Can you help me promote my game?
Please no. I make lists. Nothing more. Your list is full of errors and now my vacuum cleaner sucks!
Indeed, this fine piece of code runs purely on meatballs and schnapps, so anything can happen. Leave a comment and I'll see what I can do.
Ending soon (30)

2023.05.28 12:59 3xistential_dr3ad Enemies to lovers with older MCs
I'm looking for a romance that is enemies to lovers but heavy on the enemies side of things, and between two older MCs. I am not looking for something where the MCs get past their dark history in the first 50 pages, but instead struggle with their history for a while. I am also not looking for any kind of high school or sports book. I am hoping for something similar to Hazard and Somerset
books. Their slow-burn enemies to lovers dynamic is very much what I am hoping for but maybe with a little more romance. And again I would like the MCs to be a bit older. Any setting is acceptable! I love fantasy, sci-fi, modern, honestly anything that fits this is fine. I am desperate so I will take just about anything at this point. Thanks so much!

2023.05.28 12:35 teamcrazymatt Defending the Draft 2023: New England Patriots
No one can ever predict a Bill Belichick draft.
When people start assuming he’ll act based on his stereotypes (first-round trade down, OL early, no early WRs, all Alabama players or small school guys or guys from Rutgers), he’ll do the opposite. When the consensus is that he’ll shift away from those stereotypes, he’ll lean right into them.
So in observing mock drafts, both full and team-centric, there was a lot of accord that he would follow those stereotypes. (Adam Korsak, both a punter and from Rutgers, was EVERYWHERE.)
But then the end of April came.
Before then, New England had suffered a 2022 season full of embarrassment, from Matt Patricia and Joe Judge’s ineptitude at running the offense to a team that seemed to find new ways to lose in humiliating fashion (a certain ill-fated lateral sequence peak among them). The Patriots went from their dynastic reign as a team which would trounce their opponents in laughers to the team that everyone pointed and laughed at. Mac Jones’ Patricia- and Judge-sparked regression along with impressive cameo appearances by ‘22 rookie Bailey Zappe split the fanbase into Mac and Zappe camps, with sports media fueling the flame by spreading or outright fabricating rumors
of Belichick shopping Mac, rumors which lasted through the first day of the draft. It was an ugly season and an uglier start to the offseason.
The franchise clearly needed to make changes in 2023, and changes started near the top. Patricia and Judge lost their roles, the former joining the Eagles coaching staff and the latter moving to lead special teams, a necessary move as this Belichick-led squad had plummeted to the lowest-ranked third unit. (More on that later.) Patricia had filled the dual roles of de facto
offensive coordinator and facto
offensive line coach, and filled both roles with the acumen of me designing plays in Backyard Football 2002
, except I could actually design plays that resulted in touchdowns. Judge had manned the quarterbacks room, and given that Daniel Jones finally broke out for the Giants once Judge had been booted from mentoring him, you can guess how that went for Mac and the Pats. In his new role in charge of special teams, he has already cost the team two OTAs and Bill Belichick $50,000 for an offseason meetings violation, and has elevated his 2022 title of Co-Most Hated Man in Foxboro to Single Most Hated Man in Foxboro.
Anyway, New England needed to fill their old roles, and brought in: Bill O’Brien, Offensive Coordinator / Quarterbacks Coach
A long-time friend of Belichick’s, O’Brien returns for his second stint as Pats OC, having dictated the offense in Rob Gronkowski’s record-setting 2011 season. Additionally, O’Brien comes by way of running the offense and the QB room at the University of Alabama, which spawned Mac Jones. Mac regressed in 2022 after an impressive 2021, but recall that 2022 was under the abysmal leadership of Patricia (calling his plays) and Judge (his direct coach), a situation in which no one could develop. By bringing in his old OC and QB coach, Mac has been put in the best possible position to develop in ‘23, a position which will much more clearly give fans a vision of his future as an NFL quarterback. (And the playcalling will be legitimate! It’s been but a year and we have already forgotten what creativity, route concepts, and misdirection have looked like!) Adrian Klemm, Offensive Line Coach
Belichick’s first draft pick after taking the helm in New England in 2000, Klemm has joined the team after coaching at Oregon last year. He comes with a strong reputation at that coaching position, having headed a Ducks O-line that allowed just five sacks in 2022. Last season, the Patriots saw a regression from their veterans on the line, most notably in Trent Brown’s newfound flag-happiness, and first-round rookie guard Cole Strange put forth a mixed performance. Bringing in an actual offensive line coach gives the team the best chance to fix any issues that showed in ‘22 and to develop their young linemen.
Of course, coaching was not the only issue last season, as New England was criticized for their lack of talent on the roster. Of New England’s high-cash free agent class of 2021, only edge rusher Matthew Judon shined in both his seasons in Foxboro: neither tight end Jonnu Smith nor wideout Nelson Agholor ever got off the ground, tight end Hunter Henry regressed after a solid ‘21, and wideout Kendrick Bourne found himself suddenly in Patricia’s doghouse and off the field. Moves needed to be made as the calendar turned to free agency. Notable Departures S Devin McCourty (retired)
The most prominent departure from the ‘22 squad, McCourty is one of many who can be termed a quintessential Patriot. A first-round cornerback out of Rutgers in 2010, D-Mac made the switch to safety in 2012 and locked down the position for the next decade. When he was on the verge of leaving the team in free agency in 2015, even reaching out to Belichick to say goodbye, Belichick signed him to a top-valued safety contract and kept him in red, white, and blue. His leadership and personality made him a joy to watch on the field and off, his personality showing itself especially well recently through interactions with his twin brother Jason, who played alongside him for the Patriots from 2018 to ‘20. Statistically, D-Mac ends his career with 35 interceptions, one shy of the franchise record, and 4 touchdowns (two picks, a kickoff return, and a blocked field goal return). We miss him already. P Jake Bailey (released; signed with Miami)
What a drop. After an All-Pro season in 2020, Bailey signed a four-year extension in 2022 only to become the worst statistical punter in the league. After he was injured, the Patriots brought in Michael Palardy, who managed to be even worse (personally, I blame the team’s curse that comes with the jersey number 17). Neither punter remains with the team, Bailey joining an AFC East rival in the Dolphins and Palardy currently unsigned. TE Jonnu Smith (traded to Atlanta)
There is a strong case to be made that Smith is the worst free agency signing Belichick has made as Pats GM. In the two years since inking a 4-year, $50 million deal, Smith totaled just 55 catches for 539 yards and one touchdown, and a ‘22 restructure of his contract meant that Smith appeared to be a monetary albatross the Patriots would not be able to shake loose. What led to Atlanta agreeing to take on his whole contract, sending New England a seventh-round pick to get the player, I have no idea, but I think every Pats fan would agree that Smith didn’t work out in the least and a change was best for all sides. WR Jakobi Meyers (signed with Las Vegas)
Meyers’ departure was somewhat shocking, as the 2019 UDFA had worked his way up to the top of the Patriots’ wide receiver depth chart. More of a big slot guy than an outside #1, Meyers had a minor role in his rookie season and started 2020 at the bottom of the depth chart, but injuries to the players above him got him onto the field, and a 12-catch, 169-yard performance against the Jets that November meant he wasn’t leaving it anytime soon. While not possessing top-tier speed or explosiveness, Meyers was the team’s best route runner and separator, and his departure left another void that needed to be filled. QB Brian Hoyer (released, signed with Las Vegas)
Hoyer was third on the depth chart, Zappe having shown enough to take the #2 spot. While a fine veteran mentor, the Patriots chose to go a different direction with that third QB role. WR Nelson Agholor (signed with Baltimore)
Agholor was given a two-year contract in 2021 with the anticipation of his being the #1 receiver, something which did not happen due to his unreliable hands and separation abilities. For those two years and $22 million, Agholor produced 68 catches, 835 yards, and five touchdowns. Not worth it. RB Damien Harris (signed with Buffalo)
By far the most productive member of the Patriots’ atrocious 2019 draft class, Harris was good in New England but had been passed on the depth chart by sophomore Rhamondre Stevenson midway through 2022. Couple that with Belichick’s predilection to let running backs walk instead of giving them second contracts, sprinkle in a dash of two ‘22 draft picks (Pierre Strong Jr. and Kevin Harris) who will get more opportunities in 2023, top it off with the return of Ty Montgomery II from injured reserve, and it’s no surprise that Harris is no longer a Patriot. T Isaiah Wynn (signed with Miami)
Another former first-round pick, Wynn was all right as a left tackle though was criticized for frequent injury problems; with his fifth-year option picked up for ‘22, he was inexplicably switched to right tackle, where he was very bad. He never really earned the role of franchise tackle, so it was expected that the Patriots would let him walk.
But on the upside, the team now has: Additions WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (via Kansas City)
After Meyers signed with the Raiders, the Patriots worked quickly to bring in his replacement in the slot. Smith-Schuster revived his career in Kansas City and is now in position to be a primary target for Mac for the next three seasons, possessing more explosiveness and speed than his predecessor. The biggest concern with JuJu is his durability, but I believe the Patriots have made preparations in the draft (spoiler) in case that becomes a significant problem. The fanbase is excited for Smith-Schuster on the field in Foxboro, and deservedly so. RB James Robinson (via New York (the green side))
A one-time breakout UDFA in Jacksonville, Robinson’s role diminished with the rise of Travis Etienne Jr.; after being traded to the Jets, Robinson never got settled into a role. In New England, Robinson is likely first in line for the #2 RB spot behind Stevenson, an important role given that Stevenson’s overwork saw his productivity decline as last season came to an end. Robinson also possesses the pass-catching versatility that Belichick loves, a role Harris was never used in but Stevenson is, further suggesting he can have a significant spot on the field for the Pats. TE Mike Gesicki (via Miami)
As Smith never worked out as the co-#1 TE, here comes Gesicki. A pure pass catcher at the position, Gesicki has the size and hands to be a reliable target in the red zone, and should pair nicely with Henry for a potential TE-heavy formation as the team approaches the goal line. T Riley Reiff (via Chicago) T Calvin Anderson (via Denver)
While neither comes with the contract expectation of being a long-term solution at either tackle spot, the hope is that Reiff (expected to start at RT) will be an upgrade over Wynn, while Anderson serves as a reliable swing tackle who can start if needed. LB Chris Board Jr. (via Detroit)
Remember that awful special teams unit? Board is one of the NFL’s top special teamers, a player Belichick singled out when New England faced the Lions last year. It’s unsurprising he brought in such a veteran to help solidify the unit after… just all of last year. QB Trace McSorley (via Arizona)
By bringing in McSorley in Hoyer’s stead, the team is showing a bit of a shift in philosophy with how it is using its backup QB spots. Both Mac and Zappe are pocket passers; McSorley does most of his work outside the pocket and can run with regularity, a trend more common among top-level quarterbacks like Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen. At minimum, he’s worth a camp spot, and that’s fine. P Corliss Waitman (via Denver)
Following the implosion of Bailey and Palardy at punter, the Patriots were on the verge of entering the draft with none on the roster. Waitman is a veteran addition there, but pretty much everyone expected New England to add a punter either as a draft pick or UDFA. (Another spoiler – my bad.)
After this free agency, many saw the Patriots as still having holes at the top of their depth chart at wideout, tackle, and cornerback. Tight end was also considered a need as New England, despite adding Gesicki to pair with Henry, does not have a tight end signed beyond 2023, entering the draft with only Matt Sokol and Scotty Washington behind their name duo.
Then they went on the clock, entering the draft with:
1-14 2-46 3-76 4-107 4-117 4-135 6-184 6-187 6-192 6-210 7-245
Here’s how it all went down. Draft Picks TRADE: 1-14 to PIT for 1-17 and 4-120
Although this trade was criticized for receiving too little back from Pittsburgh, it was not a major loss in capital according to the Rich Hill value chart
(325 points to PIT, 320 to NE), and it came with enough high-level talent on the board that the Patriots were sure to get one of their targets. The way the board fell, fans most wanted Christian Gonzalez, Jaxon Smith-Njigba, Zay Flowers, or Broderick Jones; when the Steelers took Jones, it became clear that the Patriots were not interested in him (reports came out that the Patriots had not been interested in Jones at all due to coachability concerns), but they were sure to land an exciting player after moving down only three spots rather than the seven-plus many mockers had predicted. Additionally, the Steelers landing Jones appeared to knock the Jets’ war room for a loop (though later video has shown that the Jets were expecting the trade), and the only thing New England fans love more than a victory is an opportunity to screw over the Jets. 1-17: Christian Gonzalez, CB, Oregon
The Patriots’ selection of Gonzalez received universal acclaim, and it’s easy to see why. Despite having strong CB depth, the Patriots lacked a true #1 corner; Gonzalez has the ability, length, and athleticism to be that from Day One. The first-round pick via Colorado and Oregon was widely projected as a top-10 selection, so for New England to land him at 17 is a tremendous coup. From his interviews and his play style, Gonzalez seems like a quiet guy off the field who wants to shut the opponent down when on the turf. He’ll be fun to watch. 2-46: Keion White, ED, Georgia Tech
White is another player falling under the new Patriots draft umbrella under Belichick and Matt Groh: as athletic as can be. While he is raw, White has the athleticism to play three downs along the defensive line and the versatility to move inside when the situation calls for it. The Patriots thought so highly of him that he was a player they were considering drafting in the first round, even considering a move back into the last picks of the round to snag him, but landed him at 46 anyway. How much he will play as a rookie is uncertain as New England has a very good edge duo in Matthew Judon and Josh Uche, but even if White has to take a year to get acclimated to the NFL, that’s not unheard of in Foxboro and has produced success for highly-touted picks: neither Nate Solder (first round) nor Trey Flowers (fourth round) took on long-term starting roles as rookies (though Solder filled in at right tackle plenty), but were established starters in their second years. Similarly, Uche (second round) started off as an occasionally-used part of a pass rushing rotation before hitting double-digit sacks last year, his third season in the league. And if White earns significant playing time in 2023, all the better. 3-76: Marte Mapu, LB, Sacramento State
* Here’s that small-school selection that detractors tend to point at regarding Belichick, but Mapu has elite potential. I got tipped off to Mapu late in the pre-draft cycle, and watching film of him I was reminded a lot of Kyle Dugger, another small-school Day 2 player who has turned into an excellent Patriot. Mapu is going to play linebacker, likely his best position, and fill the role of coverage ‘backer that New England has lacked for several seasons. He’s also athletic and scheme-versatile, having spent time at safety and linebacker while at Sacramento State, so he will be able to move around the defensive formation if the situation calls for it. Add to that his tackling, his closing speed, and his containment, and you’ve got yourself a potential stud. 4-107: Jake Andrews, C, Troy
The Patriots need their future long-term center with David Andrews now 31 and having an injury history, and Jake Andrews (unrelated) is set up perfectly to be that guy. Andrews the Younger is built in the same mold as Andrews the Elder: both exited college as smaller in stature than other centers but able to get a push on defensive linemen from below, meaning Jake can easily learn specific bits of technique from David. While not expected to play the role immediately, [anagram: Ned Was a Jerk] is now in position to spend time behind [anagram: Swan Diver Dad], preparing himself to take over at center in the near future. TRADE: 4-120 and 6-184 to NYJ for 4-112 4-112: Chad Ryland, K, Maryland
This is not the first time Belichick has selected a kicker in the fourth round, selecting Stephen Gostkowski with pick 118 in 2006; with the Patriots in desperate need for a strong player at the position, moving up to make sure they could land him makes sense (especially with Jake Moody being selected by the 49ers at 3-99). And Ryland is what Nick Folk is not: a big-legged kicker with kickoff ability. Folk has been appreciated in New England for his accuracy, but his distance and accuracy notably declined in 2022, and when forced to kick off, his lack of touchback distance led to trouble, the Patriots surrendering a league-high three kick return touchdowns (including two in the season finale). It’s clear an upgrade at kicker was a requirement this offseason; with Moody gone, giving up a sixth to move up eight spots is absolutely fine. In doing so, New England has hopefully landed their kicker for the next decade. 4-117: Sidy Sow, G, Eastern Michigan
At this point, it may be considered confusing for the Patriots to have drafted a left guard in Sow when last year’s first-round pick Cole Strange is entrenched there and Mike Onwenu mans right guard at an elite level, but Groh’s post-draft comments indicated the team would give Sow opportunities at left tackle as well. And not only does Sow have experience at left tackle, he has the size at 6’5” and 326 pounds. New England’s projected starting tackles are veterans Trent Brown and Riley Reiff, both of whom are over 30 and are in contract years; if Sow returns to the position, the former mauling EMU Eagle (heh, two birds) offensive lineman could ease the need at tackle for next offseason. TRADE: 4-135 to LV for 5-144 and 6-214 5-144: Atonio Mafi, G, UCLA
Another interior lineman? Yes. Mafi is a guard whom the Patriots worked with at the Shrine Bowl, and has the versatility to move between left and right guard. As the aforementioned Onwenu is in a contract year, Mafi has a clear path to a potential starting job in 2024, and the most important thing right now for the development of Mac Jones is keeping him upright. By selecting three offensive linemen – using a quarter of their 12 selections on the offensive trench – Belichick and Groh have signaled their intent to do just that. From all accounts, Mafi, who met with New England in a pre-draft visit, is thrilled to join the team
; now it’s about proving it on the field. 6-187: Kayshon Boutte, WR, LSU
Boutte is the epitome of a boom-or-bust prospect, his elite 2020 and ‘21 being overshadowed by a disappointing 2022 that dropped him from clear first-rounder to a middle-of-Day-3 selection. As a freshman and sophomore, Boutte looked to follow in the footsteps of highly-drafted LSU wideouts such as Odell Beckham Jr., Justin Jefferson, and JaMarr Chase, showing a complete package of agility, speed, and route running. Unfortunately, an injury plus conflicts with his new coach Brian Kelly led to underperformance, and a poor combine performance cemented his draft stock as having drastically fallen. But if he can get back to his earlier form, where his talent and athleticism led to a combined 83 receptions, 1244 yards, and 14 touchdowns in his first two college seasons, Boutte could become the steal of the draft. 6-192: Bryce Baringer, P, Michigan State
While New England had signed Corliss Waitman so as to have a
punter on the roster heading into the draft, none assumed he was the long-term answer; when the Patriots made Baringer the first punter taken in the 2023 draft, it became clear who was. A walk-on turned cut turned best punter in college football, Baringer has a booming leg that showed itself in an average punt length of 49.0 yards in ‘22; he also holds the Michigan State record for career punting average at 46.0 yards. As a bonus, he worked with Ryland at the Senior Bowl, so the two have already begun to develop chemistry in the holding game. As another bonus, he wore No. 99 in college, and that is awesome. 6-210: Demario Douglas, WR, Liberty
When one imagines a typical Patriots slot receiver – small, shifty, and explosive with the ball in his hands – one might well be imagining Douglas. The five-foot-eight Liberty product can absolutely fly, moving all around the formation and catching balls at all levels of the field. New Englanders got a preview of what Douglas’ game might look like when rookie cornerback Marcus Jones began to take snaps on offense last year; Jones was often put in motion before the snap, worked out of the backfield, and assigned touches where his elusiveness was the spark to gain yards. Douglas has said he models his game after Jones, a claim that demonstrates itself when one views his collegiate tape. I had a third-round grade on Douglas, so the Patriots landing him at 210 is a thrill. (Even though the Giants took one of my draft crushes in Tre Hawkins III the pick before, for which I’m still irked.) 6-214: Ameer Speed, CB, Michigan State
The unknown about Speed is whether he will develop on defense; that is not his skill at the moment. There are three things known: his size (6’3”, 210 lbs.), his speed (4.34s 40), and his special teams prowess. With longtime special teams captain Matthew Slater likely entering his last year, the Patriots need to develop a new crop of special teams standouts, long a hallmark of Belichick’s Patriots from the time of Larry Izzo. Last year’s UDFA Brenden Schooler looks like one of those players already; Speed will certainly be given every chance possible to be another. 7-245: Isaiah Bolden, CB, Jackson State
More tall athletic cornerbacks! The only HBCU selection in the 2023 draft, Bolden is an incredible athlete who likely earned his way to a draft selection by lighting up his Pro Day. Though just a role player on defense, Bolden has developmental traits that any defensive coach would love, and has also been a top collegiate kick returner, leading all of college football in 2021 with a 36.9-yard average on kickoff returns. I don’t see the two late-round cornerback selections as “throw players on the field and see who sticks” à la the ill-fated dual tight end picks of Devin Asiasi and Dalton Keene in 2020’s third round, but selecting players who might have longer chances to succeed, but if they do succeed can truly shine.
Though Bolden was the last of the Patriots’ 2023 draft picks, that did not conclude their rookie class as the period of UDFA signings immediately began. The Patriots have had an undrafted rookie make the Week 1 roster every year since 2004; with just a four-man class this season, chances are slim. They’re not impossible – their only
2021 UDFA, kicker Quinn Nordin, made it – but they’re definitely slimmer. Here are the four who can continue that streak. Undrafted Rookies Malik Cunningham, QB, Louisville
The most expensive ($200,000) and well-known of the quartet, Cunningham’s slight build and arm as a quarterback led to piles of speculation of his switching positions. However, he has started off his Patriots tenure as a quarterback in rookie minicamp, so he remains a quarterback until further notice. Throughout college, Cunningham’s most intriguing asset has been his supreme athleticism at the position, something which showed up in testing, and it remains to be seen how the Patriots will use that athleticism to help the team. (It may be a good while until outside sources get a look, as minicamp and OTAs have thus far been closed off to the media.) Johnny Lumpkin, TE, Louisiana-Lafayette
After foregoing using a selection on a tight end in a deep draft class (another Belichick trend), New England instead brought in Lumpkin, who projects as a blocking tight end in the NFL. This offsets the biggest negative, his age (he’ll be 26 to start the season), as the Patriots lack a true blocker at the position. Whether Lumpkin can take advantage of this path to a roster spot remains to be seen, but his road to making the team as an undrafted rookie seems easiest at the moment. Jourdan Heilig, LB, Appalachian State
Like Board and Speed, Heilig joins the Patriots as a special teams standout, playing minimal defense as a Mountaineer (three snaps in 2022) but standing out in college on the third unit (210 snaps in 2022). He’ll have a chance to follow in the path of Schooler as a UDFA who makes his mark as a core special teamer. Justus Tavai, DL, San Diego State
The middle of the Tavai brothers (older brother Jahlani is a Patriots linebacker, younger brother Jonah signed with Seattle as a UDFA), Justus played alongside Jonah on the Aztec defensive line in 2022. While Jonah put up eye-popping numbers with double-digit sacks, Justus was a steady contributor as well, putting up 3.5 sacks and intercepting a pass. Tavai is the ninth man on the Patriots’ defensive line right now, so he has a difficult path if he wants to make the team.
He’s not an undrafted rookie, but the Patriots have also brought in veteran free agent Anthony Firsker, TE
to compete with Lumpkin, Sokol, and Washington for the third tight end spot, the roster spot opened with their losing reserve Raekwon McMillan, LB
to a partially torn Achilles tendon. Projected Offseason Depth Chart

Is this a perfect Patriots team? No. There are still long-term holes at offensive tackle and tight end, and there is a question mark as to who can be that pass catcher whom defensive coordinators have to plan for, a player the team has lacked for several seasons.
But is this an exciting Patriots roster, a team who has a chance to exceed their middling projections and expectations, a team worth watching and cheering for? Absolutely. Belichick and company have stabilized the coaching staff; added explosive, athletic players at nearly every position; brought in a new crew of players to take over special teams; and begun their draft with three players who could not only start in the NFL but have the potential to star. I fully believe that this is not an 8-9 caliber team, even in an AFC East with three other teams that have added big name after big name.
As Bill Belichick might say, we’re on to 2023.
We’re on to victory.

2023.05.28 10:31 D-V1LB4BY- [F4M] The Barbarian & The Princess (18+)
Hey-o! I’m Maddie, making a new prompt that I’m interested in. This was originally in my drafts so when I post it will just sort of be randomized when I’ve freed up a spot with a partner whose no longer available. If any of my CURRENT partners see this, no I am not replacing you, if our server isn’t gone or I haven’t given you a notice I am fully still interested in our writing!
So, to get a jest of what I’m looking for, I am EST and everyone I write with will be over the age of 18 or the equivalent. I am looking for a male writer, cis or not doesn’t matter to me whatsoever. This is a completely LGBTQ+ safe zone in my DM’s/profile. As for concept, this setting is in a high fantasy world. My character is an elven princess whose father has arrogantly pawned his daughter off. But here’s the catch, he knows no one can complete the task he’s set out. That is until your character, a barbarian ruler is able to complete it effortlessly. Here’s a small pitch:
The elven kingdom on Jgravgon was over a thousand years old. The rulers all being within the same family, and never skipping the heirship. Though this time was a bit different. King Raleigh almost hated his job, and the inheritance. In fact, he hated everything. His wife, his family, his daughter especially. She had the desire to marry, but he wanted no more heirs or anyone to rule in their family after he died. So he made it almost impossible for her to marry. Hundreds of suitors from across the world came trying their luck with the princess, and all failed.
The task was simple. Name the animal that bore the leather hanging in front of the throne room. All men failed, whether it was an expert hunter, a horseman, a soldier, no one was able. Until the barbarian was given the chance…
That’s my pitch. It’s pretty simple, we can definitely develop or mess with ideas in my messages. Good luck to your writing!

2023.05.28 10:22 BarkingRambler Derek Lively or Kobe Bufkin? (Plus other thoughts)
I’ve had Kobe Bufkin going to us in my mock, but Lively seems to make a lot of sense too, and I might be leaning towards Lively now. Plus these prospects are also being discussed here, so it looks like we’re generally on the same page. I see prospects like Hawkins (pretty good if available) and Howard (awful pick, can’t play D and really not the type of player we need) also being brought up. The thing is we don’t need another wing/forward, Murphy, Herb, BI and Zion is enough scuffle at that 2/3-4 spots, they’re really good. So i’m totally against Keyonte George/Jett Howard/Brice Sensabaugh and players like that. Prospects that I am open to other than Bufkin and Lively are Rayan Rupert (not a massive fan of drafting but see the intrigue) and JHS. Love Leonard Miller but not the position we want ideally.
Plus: Can someone tell me what the trade for Jrue ended up being? (ik what the trade was, but what did those pieces end up being)
Plus(2): Why is this sub not very active? (Ik we’re the smallest market in the NBA but come on)

2023.05.28 07:58 EntertainerFeisty626 AITAH for telling my female co-workers that they might cry
My apologies for asking this, but I overthink alot, and I feel like I am the Ahole. To give some background, I (f26) work in a local owned sport-store. I started working there in the year 2021, and loved all my coworkers and management. Except for one. This coworker is a shiflead in the sports section, let's call him Jack (not his real name. But it's short for Jacka)
So when I got hired, there was another female (#1) in my department (clothing) who worked with me, she left not even three months. Due to Jack's word of her's, she was dismissed and sent home in tears. The company then hired two more females (cashiers -#2,#3), and I had kept my mouth shut and tried to keep my head down. I would also like to mention, we are allowed to keep our phones on us. It helps with new products coming into the company and searching for stuff - I use mine to let my long distance BF know I am still okay, maybe 3-5 in the 9hr shift. Jack and the rest of the males play fantasy games on their phones with customers around.
After the three months for me and the first cashier had passed, Jack and another Shiftlead (f - who left after Xmas) basically cornered me one day. The reason was it was a slow day, I checked with my customers which was 7 people in clothing asking if they needed help. I would come back at least every five minutes because you never know,they could need a size or remember something else they need. So when I got pulled into the office to have a chat about that. Because apparently it made a group feel awkward. That night I cried but took the lecture like a champ.
The next problem came about spring. Both cashiers had cried because of him and #3 had quit the job, because of his attitude. I have mentioned it to the managers in private that they need to chat about his tone of voice, aggressive behavior and as someone in a position like his, it isn't appropriate in front of customers. The manager had dismissed this multiple times - since not only Jack has a baby on the way but is best friends with the owners and managers ( who also has a small one now). They dismissed it with the excuse "we been trying." "He probably stressed."
During this, I was moved departments and been trained in three out of five department. I was placed the shoe department with the exception of moving to cash, or clothing when needed.
So Jack had made my go home and cry many times, with the other cashier(#2) who had a meltdown one time infront of customers (when training a PT girl#5 for cash). So when we hired another female (#4), that was being sent to his department. I worried. I thought since he was going to make her cry, giving a heads up on , "if he makes you cry, don't take it personally. He does have alot on his plate. With new baby on the way, he would be stress" Technically defending him. I made it my goal to say to the female workers because I really don't want them to take it personally. He will sometimes make you cry.
Well, girl #4, didn't make the three months. (There was also girl #4.5 shipping team hire but not important right now but later.) Reason was Jack again. The manager team, gave me $1.50 raise in pay and also had hired in November -dumroll please- girl#6 to be place in the clothing department. Same warning, and all. Took note of it, and this past Jan. The store had witnessed this. I was covering the day up at cash. I had a defective return and it didn't print the defective receipt. Jack had came up to cover for my hour lunch break and once I got back. Lecture me on how I did the return wrong, it was more paperwork for management and I need to do better. Because of the tone of voice I had a moment of PDST linking to something I tried blocking in childhood. I was in tears and could not calm down. Since he was the only cashier, girl #6 tried to help, but she wasn't cash trained. I left that day, because I couldn't handle my breathing and was on a verge of a panic attack. On my way out of the store he half-heartedly said sorry. I quickly explain it's his tone of voice, and it needs some work on it.
In February girl #5 (PT cashier (u18)) went to work but was feeling sick. She asked if it was okay to go home and she only came because we were short staffed, and Jack said he will think about. When lunch came around, she was running to the washroom more and more often. She demanded Jack to sent her home. And he did after giving her a lecture of how irresponsible she is (thinking she was drinking the night before - she wasn't) and sent her home in tears. A couple weeks later Girl#6 told me and thanked me for the warning. He made her cry. However Girl #6 had left in March, due to a ofter she nor her boo could refuse. A new house across the country.
So here comes two more girls, #7 and #8. Like before I gave the same warning and all. Don't take it personally. Oh boy. It was bad and good, because at the end of April, the owners and management left for Vacation, giving my a key to the store (another $1raise) but also leaving Jack in charge for the week.
So once they left, SHTF so to speak. Jack gave me a list a stuff to do, because it's my section (shoes) and how dare I leave it messing (mind you the last few months, I was located everywhere like 2day or three days in clothing, one day in cash and the other in shoes). That week would be the first in a long while, of having four days in the department. So I compliance his request, while covering cash for washroom breaks, lunch breaks and tending customers. Monday he still came in to open but left due to his day off. One tasks was writing pricetags and model on every shoe. The next day I came in early to tried and finished the stupid task he gave me. He was pissed off at me, from his words "I was wasting the owners time clocking in early. (Confirm with management that if I was working early, it's fine.) That the task he wanted me to do wasn't finished yet and how dare I open the store since clearly I don't know the procedures in the lights don't turn on... Etc." Then tells me that I wasn't the only one giving a lecture that day.
So remember that girl #4.5 the shipping team. Yeah. On Monday she had at least 35 online orders to ship out, pack and the report it to another sister store. She got a lecture on time management. Didn't cause her to cry, but had bit her tougne from swearing. Girl #8 was told on monday to put bike accessories on the wall. Wasn't told on how it he wanted and gave her basically free reign. Then lecture on her about how she did it wrong. So she need to cool down and told him with another witness she was going to help me for a bit, since she finished what he asked her. He and the male coworker stood in the same spot for hours until lunch time. He was pissed off that she wasn't working, through she was, and the male coworker back her up. She also witnessed Jack put his hand on a male PT 15year old on his face and called him fat. So low and behold, we waited for management. We told them everything. Their excuse... "We put everything on his shoulders, and it's hard to be a manager. " They tried to bribe girl#8 a raise. She gave a two week notice.
So lastly, they hired two more, #9 and #10. Like before I gave them the warning, "if he makes you cry, don't take it personally. He does have alot on his plate. With a new baby, he would be stress."
Today he made me grin and bare it until I got home a cried. He gave two lectures and was pissed off because I told first, his department covers shoes and we had breaks sorted out for cash and clothing. I was in clothing for the day. He sent me to lunch at 12:24, because clearly his own ego forgot that his department covers shoes and since there're 3 cashiers. Apparently two cashiers can't go to lunch together. Our breaks are 12, 1 or 2. I picked 2pm because I wanted to call my BF. The new cashier was going at 2 as well and covering at 1pm. So my teamate and I decided, he goes at 1pm and I stay close to help out if need. Then I got berated by Jack at 4:55, and was told he didn't like the fact I was saying to the new girls, because it's true, "if he makes you cry, don't take it personally." And he wants me fired so, he would be talking to the owner and management about my behavior, this week. I feel like I am the Asshole about this. But I don't know. My Boyfriend doesn't think I am the Asshole.
So in the end, Am I the Asshole for telling my female co-workers that they might cry.
Since he made 7/11 cry and 4/11 quit.

2023.05.28 07:24 fishsticks199 I think Lively is being seriously overlooked
I'm honestly pretty surprised by where Lively is being mocked at this point, generally seeing him around 20.
I'm not sure if people just lost interest because of his slow start, but the 2nd half of the season Lively was consistently playing incredible defense. I'm a bit confused because to me he feels like one of the best defensive players of his archetype (defensive specialist big with limited offensive role/upside) that I've seen in probably the 8 or so years I've been following the draft.
The combination of rim protection and perimeter defense is extremely rare, especially for a guy who isn't problematically skinny. Lively handles switches much better than the rim protection specialists we've seen lately and should definitely be scheme versatile.
I get there are concerns with the offense, but I think that may be overthinking it a bit. For a guy who should really just be playing in the P&R, Duke was a terrible fit due to their poor shooting and playmaking. With his combination of size and athleticism I seriously doubt he can't succeed in the P&R with NBA spacing and playmakers.
And I get the general aversion to drafting unskilled bigs in the lottery, I normally am in that camp. But I think his scheme versatility offsets a lot of those concerns.
