    Brees-Brady SB

    The announcers don’t have enough room in their mouths for that matchup.

    Nosebleed end zone In Philly are like $300 on StubHub for regular season. They’d be $600 for a playoff game 😂

    2019 why don't we get games in 4k?

    crap, lets just put cameras in the helmets and VR that feed! That would be insane! Imagine the videos of people tackling their wives, kids, or running through walls lol 😂

    2019 why don't we get games in 4k?

    It’s caused by a feature in tvs called motion smoothing or maybe true imaging or some catch phrase like that which essentially takes a tv show or movie that was filmed in 24fps and tries to make it look like it was filmed at 60fps or 120fps. It does this by adding in frames, "guessing” what the next image would be, technical term is interpolation. It’s basically faking a higher refresh rate. If the original source wasn’t at a high refresh rate, which most TVs shows and older movies aren’t, and your tv has this feature, you’ll notice the effect. With sports, it can be really noticeable because of the fast movements and that’s why i say it can make you motion sick actually. You can likely turn off motion smoothing to reduce the effect. But again this is all due to refresh rate and not resolution.

    Btw, the reason you’re not seeing games in 4K is that you don’t have the right equipment. There are only 2 specific boxes from Comcast that broadcast 4K and they are only available to x1 subscribers and not available in all areas. The other reason is that a lot of tv shows aren’t broadcast in 4K because believe it or not the world isn’t ready for it. You still have homes that are barely set up for digital let alone high def and 4K (meaning not current TVs that can even display it), so there isn’t as much of a demand as you think. the average home has less than 4K tv and a dated set top box that can’t even display 4K so for that reason you aren’t getting games and shows in 4k. Most tv shows aren’t recorded in 4K as well so the source isn’t even up to date. Most 4K content you will find through Netflix, prime, YouTube tv, etc. if you have a 4K tv, you will notice the difference if the source is 4K and the equipment can display it in true 4K (without upscaling). If you have a smart tv, go watch a 4K Netflix show via the tv app, and then go watch that same show via the Comcast box Netflix app. You’ll see the difference immediately. And refresh rate has nothing to do with resolution. Refresh rate is how smooth it will look and lag time which is more important in heavy gaming and fast action sports like hockey or Bball. In fact a fast refresh rate watching those sports can make you sick, it’s really hard to digest. It creates the soap opera effect. On a side note if you have 4K and a ps4, get the game called horizon zero dawn and tell me you don’t believe in the power of 4k. I think our comp sci major needs to spend more time in the books. 😆

    I see what you did there 😂 but not to fret, 40k is no different than 1080 posts. You hit your point of diminishing returns when the posts stopped being in red italics.

    By transparent he means that he said he had "some debt and bad credit” and that he would only really need a one year deal cuz that’s all he has left before sentencing.

    Actually I think she was jailed for conspiracy and obstructing rather than insider trading so bad example.

    How many years did Martha Stewart serve? I mean it’s a pretty serious offense, regardless of the dollar amount. Simply giving it back shouldn’t keep him out of jail.
