  1. Currently sitting at TE #5 in PPR. Also has the 3rd most receiving yards of any TE. Not bad for the rookie's first month.
  2. What are the odds of making a 60 yard FG? Because McCarthy sent out the FG unit for a 60-yarder with 20 seconds left in the half. Seemed likely they were giving the ball back to Brady at midfield and that's exactly what happened.
  3. With 3 divisions, do you just group all teams together when determining playoff seeds (1-8)?
  4. Every time Ayton catches the ball moving towards the basket, he travels. It’s like he takes the 3-4 steps but he forgets to dribble.
  5. Detailed analysis of yesterday's incident TopShot admitting the mistake and making amends with those who participated in the challenge
  6. TopShot has been busted by the community again….. for the most recent challenge reward (Mitchell Throwdown), the serial numbers weren’t assigned randomly. There were assigned based on when each user joined TS. So the earliest user received serial #1 and the latest user received the last serial number. Luckily everything is on blockchain so someone was able to call them out on it. Now the serial numbers for all previous rewards are being questioned.
  7. I still really like the idea of owning a collection of great plays. But TopShot has been all over the place with their decisions and execution lately. They are always trying to fix a previous mistake. For example, they wanted to make rares more available to everyone so they released 81,000 "rare" Throwdown packs. Since that bombed and everyone sold the mistake, TopShot made collector score the qualification for the next rare pack.... and they gave a strange bonus score to those who have lost money in the marketplace. They've got a legendary drop coming up and the rumor is a collector score of 5,000. So they've pretty much priced out any new users unless a new user wants to spend over $1k just to become eligible. And yes, the value of moments is VERY dependent on every TopShot decision. Changes to collector score, requirements, challenges, release numbers, new sets, and ticket trade-in system can all send a specific moment value sky-high or crashing to the ground. I'll continue enjoying the cheap stuff but I don't have much faith in anything more than that.
  8. A better analogy would be if your daughter set some school records her junior year, but during her senior year a boy in her class transitions and then beats her every race and takes her records. Or a boy takes her #1 singles spot in tennis. Or a boy takes her starting point guard spot in basketball. I think you and your daughter would be upset.
  9. That burden should fall on the individual making the decision to transition, not the entire rest of the world to accommodate them. "Well you are biologically male, so you won't be able to complete in girls sports." Hopefully that discussion would include the many other ways for the individual to exercise, work hard, practice teamwork, etc.
  10. Exactly. Hearing about even one girl in Connecticut losing out on a medal is enough for me to speak out against this.
  11. What a bummer for the 10 women who should be competing for an Olympic spot, but instead they are sitting at home while a man competes in their place.
  12. In the series 2 base set, there are 2 moments for many of the stars, and 1 moment for lesser players. I'm just reporting the 10 million total moments that others have calculated. It isn't quite as simple as 286 unique moments x 35k = 10 million since some of the moments are limited edition at 10k, 15k, etc.
  13. For those keeping track, Top Shots has released 10 million series 2 base moments.
  14. Right. It seems Top Shot has just been guessing and trying random ideas the last few weeks. It has messed with the supply and demand, and people are pissed. One day it is unlimited packs, the next day it is a challenge with a crappy reward, the next day it is a somewhat rare pack with mostly crappy players, etc. Owning moments is so much better than a simple picture of the player. I would have been drooling at the idea of this as a kid. But they need to get back to basics which is cheap packs with mostly cheap unlimited moments, and rare packs with great moments from superstars. I would love to buy low on some of these cool moments, but I have no idea what TS is going to do next which might tank the value. People don't mind buying a lotto ticket for $10 and coming up empty. But when 75k of your users spend $150 on a lotto ticket and get a pile of doo doo, those users won't stick around for long.
  15. 41 out of the 45 rare throwdown moments are selling for less than the cost of the pack. The 4 money makers aren’t even selling for much ($150-$300). I should have just skipped the pack and bought a Zion or Edwards for $280.
  16. I spent $150 and I have a crappy Xavier Tillman rare moment to show for it.
  17. Since moments can someday be turned in for tokens, I decided to buy up a dozen moments for $3-$4. I also completed the Hustle challenge for the Giannis moment. Figured that completing a challenge might be a future pack requirement. I will probably lose money on both of those decisions, but it is worth it for some future opportunities. So my collector score is high enough to qualify for today's rare pack, and I'm going to go for it. I'll let you guys know if it was worth it, or if I crashed and burned the $150.
  18. Just a heads up.... there is an upcoming pack drop where everyone gets a pack but you need to reserve your pack within the next 2 hours.
  19. If you search the marketplace for "Legendary: Holo Icon Series 2" you'll see the moments for sale for $900 - $22,000, with many in range of $1500. Looking at the sales histories, it it looks like a handful of each moment are selling every day, although it's never clear how much actual money is being exchanged.
  20. There is a registration going on right now for a common pack. I think that everyone who registers will get a pack. These common cards are headed further downward in price, but wanted to let everyone know just in case there was interest.
  21. Opened my pack and it featured jump shots from Joe Ingles, Marc Gasol, and Carmelo Anthony 😂 Truly awful pack. Cool Cats was Christian Wood so I flipped it for $50 already. Wish I would have left the pack unopened.
  22. Same here. I've got $15 invested total, and I keep flipping unwanted cards for more packs and players I actually do want. Sold a Cool Cats Dragic for $85. Used that money to buy more packs (which included a huge Anthony Edwards dunk) and an Anthony Davis dunk from Lebron for $15. Definitely worth the small investment to own some highlight plays.
  23. Isn't Top Shots just repeating the same problem from early 90s card collecting? The companies pump out tons and tons of cards (making $$$ for the company), while collectors get left holding junk because there isn't any scarcity. Let's say years from now, you want an Anthony Davis moment. Well you are in luck because they have released 17 Anthony Davis moments since September. Repeat that year after year, and there will be hundreds of moments available for every player. I can see the rare moments holding some value, but not the $5k - $25k values we are seeing now.
