Football Display Case
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
thoughtful piece from Jacobi on middle finger lady
Didnt know that slaves made millions of dollars. Doesn't seem like such a bad deal after all.
... the list of individuals using metaphors poorly, and other people getting offended by it. Kinda like Jalen's "Uncle Tom" comment.
Should be a nonstory, you know, with the real issues the world is facing right now.
Do Something. If it works, do more of it. If it doesn't, do something else.
I think this is an actual national issue. I don't think Peterson or some of the other people take it with the same gravity as it deserves, but this story has it all.
Tons of money being thrown around and at stake, litigation, labor law.
This absolutely makes me think Adrian Peterson is an idiot. He has some good points buried in the article, but I have no idea why he thought that line would endear him to anyone. This is going to be a media headline that people are not about to sympathize with.
Also, Mr. Peterson, please don't compare yourself to "people working at regular jobs."
Trust me, I'm a scientist.
Denard: The Happening
Before he even became a Piston, Sheed, while making $17,000,000/year, claimed playing in the NBA was like slavery. Maybe he misunderstood John Salley's quote about the NBA standing for "nothing but Africans".
Wow, what a stupid comment AP
"I hope I can get a bunch of championships - like 15"
Mike Martin on Twitter? During the Fab 5 doc, he tweeted something to the effect of "college athletes, modern day slaves. we are all out here strugglin.. #playerunion"
I think many football players have this mentality.
At least he isn't getting paid
I remember reading that as soon as he posted it, and thinking, "What a dumbass." I'm sure he was just caught up in the moment, but still it wasn't something he needed to post.
I don't want to condone what AP or MM said, but have any of you played college or professional athletics? MILLIONS are made off of these guys. I played college ball and the work you put in doesn't seem nearly worth a scholarship at times.
Again, I'm not agreeing with these comments, I'm just asking for you guys to use a little perspective before judging what they are saying.
And you know what makes it completely different from slavery? No one made you do it. It's easy enough, if it's not worth it then stop playing and pay your own way through college.
Third times a charm. I actually agree with some of what your saying but again, he chose his path in life as a NFL football player. He gets paid millions of dollars to do what he does, i'm pretty positive slaves did not get compensated or had the right to choose if they wanted to work in the field all day. But the college part of your comment I agree with, it's tough when there are only so many hours in a day to get everything done.
HAIL TO THE VICTORS VALIANT, HAIL TO THE CONQUERING HEROES!
its truly a fallacy that universities are making money off of their atheltic programs. Michigan is one of maybe 7 schools that brings in profit. if we start allowing benefits for players collegiate athletics will be destroyed.
