This article talks about HS athletes and tweeting and the potential consequences. This article seems to make a bigger deal out of what Terry Richardson was tweeting when he said he didn't want to redshirt and the backlash he received, they also put his picture at the top of the article. It's an interesting read but you would have thought it was written by the Free Press with the way they make Terry sound like Yuri Wright.
Detroit News Article on Terry Richardson and Tweeting
Needs MOAR paragraphs...
I know, we'll make some! 17 year olds are easy targets, let's start there.
I heard today in an interview that I conducted in my head that Shane Morris said that he was gonna have Fruit Loops for breakfast. He also said that Burger King was the best fast food!
have been a dream, because nobody would ever think BK is the best fast food in real life.
1.) McDonald (due to variety of menu options, healthy alternatives, etc.)
2.) Taco Bell
Shane Morris disagrees with you. But that's okay because he still loves you.
You're giving westsiders a bad name. Nobody would ever go to a fast food joint for healthy food so let's just stop pretending their "health menu" is anything resembling "healthy".
Breakfast - McDonalds, no contest.
Everything else - Burger King.
Wendy's - a step below White Castle.
I'd put Subway in for both of them but I don't think of them as the classic "fast food" joint.
I respectfully disagree with your assessment of Wendy's.
Wendy's is awesome and as far as I know the only fast food place that has chili.
Burger King is the worst.
Wendy's stopped being awesome when they decided to ruin their fries.
I like wendy's for fresh burgers, at least the one i go to. As for BK, i go there when im craving a greasy good burger..
Mcdonalds i haven't gone too much at all anymore. Other than their breakfast it is very meh. The fries there are terrible in my opinion. Wendy's and BK have better
my main complaint with Wendys is their damn new fries. Those bastards! I loved their old ones. I' m still hurt by their betrayal so I lashed out in a jilted lover kind of way. Still think BK has better burgers than Wendys, though.
I had two dollar chicken sandwiches at Wendy's tonight... Horrible. Absolutely horrible.
I'm with unWavering here. I think Wendy's is far and away the king of the mountain here, even though I don't like the change they made to their fries a couple years back.
white castle = overrated
Who considers healthy options when ordering fast food? I would have to go with Carl's Jr. myself, but it is regional. Otherwise I would take Sonic anyday over all of the above choices save for Wendy's, sans the chili.
had In-n-Out many, many times. The food is good, but if I am picking the #1 slot in my list, I want variety. My methodology was to ask myself the question, if ony one fast food restaurant could exist for the rest of eternity, which one would make me the happiest?
You must want a Jack in the Box.
You think McDonald's is the best fast food place? I'll throw you down a well!
that it is 'cool' to bag on the big boys, but for my money mcDonald's is pretty darn good. Of course their burgers and standard menu items can't compete with an In-N-Out or 5 Guys, but the breadth of the product offering sets them apart in my book.
That half of this thread is now a debate about the best fast food.
For room-clearing farts I submit there is no better fuel than the BK onion ring.
You lost me at Taco Bell. Which might rank behind dog food. On quality of meat alone.
Burger King is the Egg McMuffin of breakfast places?
There was the kid who spurned Clemson because there wasn't a Chick-fil-A on campus. He went to Arkansas IIRC. So yes, kids do care about their fast food.
There is a chick fil a about a mile off of Clemson's campus. I've been there.
I will regularly drive to Toledo from Ann Arbor to eat Chick-fi-A. It is that addicting.
We have one on campus where I go to school. I literally eat there 6 days a week, and that's only because it isn't open on Sundays.
Wendy's Spicy Chicken Sandwich is the greatest fast food item out there.
Denard agrees. He's in the union all the time for those
Yes, greatest Country-wide fast food item out there. In and Out, Chick, etc. all have better overall food. But for real low down fast food, you can't beat the Spicy Chicken. Even the nuggets are good.
Medium #6, hold the tomato. The only thing I ever order at Wendy's (plus the spicy chicken nuggets with ranch).
Now when I'm drunk the top 3 gets a little interesting:
1. Taco Bell
2. Rally's fries
3. Arby's fries
It could just me being a Northerner and not having access to it all the time, but the few times I have had Chick Filet I would say they are the best. Heck, I came so close to going to a school in the South just to have access to it.
Seriously, DetNews has nothing better to report than this. Did he curse or was he racist/sexist, give me a break. Maybe DetNews will start hanging out with ace williams
I guess they were a couple of months late to the story, so they decided to make it sounds like it was a huge deal. That makes sense. I guess.
A better headline would have been "unwise tweet causes minor kerfluffle"
I think they were required, due to the content of the article, to keep all sentences and paragraphs under 140 characters.
I wonder if this story was spurred on by the writings of a certain shitty blogger whom I will not name.
I just hope that from now on Michigan only recruits players who have never in their lives said anything stupid - kids who are comatose or something like that.
I hope Michigan only recruits playboy bunnies. Sure our football team would suck but they would be fun to watch.
BK crispy sammich is da bombzies
hell yes it is. Dude they were buy one get one free about a week ago, man I ate a shit ton of em.
Steak egg and cheese bagel does it for me
I could not read this article any further after this winning sentence:
"Consider Richardson another athlete caught in the crossfire of a growing social media problem that's made headlines for ruined reputations, damaged careers and violence."
Won't somebody think of the children! Oh the humanity!
Mrs. Reverend Lovejoy, is that you?
Or are you Moe Szyslak?
His tweet was no big deal. He's like everyone else and wants to play. He'll get his chance. If he's good enough he'll play and if he's not he will get a redshirt. I bet he will redshirt. He's tiny and needs a year or two in a college weight lifting program.
My mom gets it done for me
My mom gets it done for me
Twice as creepy.
Unfortunately it looks like this is being driven by Chatsports regarding twitter especially -
This story is making alot of allusions to even more issues being left in the open on twitter not only with Michigan, but they are going to add more versions over the next several weeks on several high profile programs.
Please stop posting links to that site. Site traffic encourages him to write even more drivel.
Let's all pretend he doesn't exist, just like in that made-for-TV movie "Merlin" where Dr. Alan Grant ignores Queen Mab and then she disappears.
As a child I was deeply bothered by the fact that Alan Grant was now Merlin. I am not sure why. As an adult I am still bothered by it.
It bothered me more that Martin Short was some sort of buck-toothed magician.
I agree with that; however, the tweets that they have pulled are more disturbing than the story above. It is too bad that these young guys do not understand what the impact and overall opinon change can happen with the use of twitter/facebook when you randomly post without thinking.
Unfortunately, I am sure that someone at Freep or Detnews will eventually grab ahold of this story and run with it......especially after the stories on Yuri Wright that made their rounds the last few weeks.
... and I won't take sides.
I just want to say, here and now, for about the sixth time in the last two years, that someday a Michigan football player's Twitter account is going to be a big headache for Brady Hoke and Dave Brandon. And it won't be just Michigan.
I was really struck by one of Denard Robinson's (he of the offline Twitter account following the spontaneous combustion of a coed with whom he was friendly) comments at the Obama speech at Glick fieldhouse: "We're not supposed to talk to the press..."
Okay. But what about all the cray shi on Twitter?
This isn't a Michigan-specific problem; not by a long shot. And I'm certainly no genius or soothsayer in predicting a future TwitterScandal. How could there not be one? Good management (and I respect both Dave Brandon and Brady Hoke as being really good managers) would recognize that something has to be done about Michigan athletes and Twitter.
Then, there might be only one choice. Ban twitter for michigan athletes. I think AJ williams and Tom strobel are off. Maybe more to come. This is what is meant when they said fans cant have nice things. And you have bottom fishers like you know who, who stalk twitter accounts and report them.
Kids will be kids and wrong things will be said. You can fault almost anyone for what they write on twitter. Not everyone will take it the same way it was intended to mean.
It's nice to know that future Wolverine football players are biggots.
Since every 17 year old can be diagnosed and classified via the 140 characters in a tweet, it seems to me that charging tuition is a bit over the top.
WTF is a biggot?
Here's a video that shows the consequences of expressing your personal feelings on a social networking site.
I don't get the Chick-fil-A thing. I finally tried one last month. Tasted like a sweaty turd. And I love fast food.
It's disturbing enough that you understand what a turd tastes like. But the fact that you took time to drip sweat on it before taking a bite goes above and beyond the call of duty.
Maybe he's naturally sweaty. And it was fresh.
Or maybe it was really an effort to pass. Don't judge him so.
