I don't see how scratching one's forehead is a "coincidence." Many people use that finger for that purpose.
landing spot. will be interesting to see how he does.

Because there can be DOUBLE meaning by doing so, with the middle finger. If those two reporters were in fact in the crowd, then my money would surely be on it.
So THAT's how that works. I'm going to have to add that to my repertoire of subtly offensive hand gestures.
You waited until you had 20+ points to post this?
Did you see the video? Watch it before you comment.
I am just saying that you joined a little over a week ago and your first board post is about something controversial that is trying add to the current fire.
that it's around the time arfabe and other RCMB trolls popped up
I don't go to freep.com, I don't go to freep.com, I don't go to freep.com. I'm not sure how many ways I can say it. Re: my comment - like I said, people do that all the time. If the video evidence (that no, I will not see because I don't go to freep.com, I don't go....) actually shows something crazy dramatic and worth commenting on (and the Freep itself didn't point it out), I'll buy you lunch. But you have to come to Chicago for it.
If he didn't at the Demar Dorsey press conference, I think he has enough self control to not do it at the Notice of Allegations Press Conference on national television...
The Dorsey interview is completely different, and surely wasn't the first time RichRod was questioned about a recruit with a past. All coaches get hounded about sketchy recruits, and the focus was on the player, not RichRod.
But the reporters were going after RR much harder in the Dorsey conference.
Fine, however RichRod and any coach expect that for a top recruit like Dorsey, for it goes with territory.
The Rosenberg allegations blindsided him, enough to make him cry.
Totally different, agree ?
I recently read a book on body language and one of the things they talked about was how people sometimes subconsciously flip the bird in uncomfortable situations around people they don't like in this exact manner. Take it with a grain of salt, however, since it probably means nothing and there is no way we will ever know.
Am interested to know if Rosenberg and Snyder were in the audience.
can't miss them they had boners
This assumes they are equipped enough to "stand out" - I would bet that having boners adds nothing to their visibility.
There's a reason that man isn't allowed on TV during daytime hours.
Classy of them to continue to stick Jim Schaefer's name on these articles. Basically saying "fuck you, we don't give a shit what bias you accuse us of, we're going to continue our campaign against UM and Rodriguez and there isn't anything you can do to stop us."
This is like the time that albino alligator climbed out of my toilet.
drink ipecac than click on a Freep link. Can't we move beyond this friggin Freep fascination?
Please do not link to the Free Press.
click on the link MGOBLOG faithful! - mistakenly giving hits to the freep site and thereby padding their advertising statistics.
This post smells a little troll-ish to me
Or just use adblock so they don't get any revenue from you.
Wait, I use adblock. Does that mean I'm screwing Brian out of revenue? Cause I can disable it on this site if it helps out, I don't mind ads sometimes.
Yes. Brian gets money for every time that one of the ads loads. You should disable it for any blogs that you read that you want to support.
Personally I'd prefer it if Rich Rod just took out a gun and shot them instead of possibly subtlely flipping them off, but that might complicate the whole "coach at UofM" gig.
You're getting a little too emotionally wrapped up in all this.
I know you're not serious, but get a grip.
Um, "being too emotionally wrapped up" and "not being serious" are two completely opposite processes. You can't be both. Although when it comes to being emotionally wrapped up in something, I guess you'd be the expert.
Here, just for you Magnus, for the record: I do not actually want Rich Rodriguez to harm Michael Rosenberg, Mark Snyder, or anybody else with any sort of weapon. My previous post was entirely in jest, and should have been interpreted as such. I apologize for any confusion that may have been caused.
Generally, it's uncouth to joke about killing people.
I know you're super pissed off that Morgan Trent exercised his freedom of speech and that Archie Collins is hijacking every potential Michigan recruit and that Rosenberg/Snyder tricked our freshmen into spilling the beans, but it sort of crosses a line when you get into "These people should be murdered" territory.
But never mind. I'm the emotional one.
I didn't use the words "kill" or "murder."
I like the strawman you slipped in there, too. Very nice.
I'll be sure to check in with you in the future regarding every joke that comes to mind. Gotta make sure the PC police signs off on it, especially when they're saying I said something I didn't actually say...
I'm sorry. When you said "shot," I should have assumed you meant "shot in the foot" or something like that.
Because...you know...people usually shoot other people just to hurt them a little bit, not actually kill them.
In the future, I'll ask for clarification about which body parts you want "shot" before I criticize.
you meant inoculated against H1N1 right? :)
something happened to you in the past seven days bc you've fuckin snapped. you're all over this board with the negativity as of late.
I love how I'm seen as the "negative" one when I've been asking people not to make personal attacks on Morgan Trent and asking people not to talk about shooting journalists.
Yep. That makes complete sense.
I'm serious. I find this hilarious.
actually i'm referring to you going all Wu Tang on people's asses simply bc of this or that. the fuck trent meme is dumb but you're going WAY beyond a simple rebuke. i came on here drunk the other night and was blown away by how off the deep end you were going. like 13 responses to one idiot bc he was... an idiot... type shit.
for someone who thinks they're above stupid shit, you sure as hell find yourself in the thick of the arguments with people you think have zero argument to offer.
Hey, I'm not perfect. Sometimes I get into pointless discussions.
Regardless, how is that being "negative"? If you can give me a good explanation as to why saying "Talking about shooting journalists crosses the line" is negative, then perhaps I'll agree with you.
Hey, I've been negbanged before for having strong opinions. I strongly supported Brandon Minor's campaign to be the starting running back in 2008, and he turned out to be the best runner on the team by far. I told everybody to calm down when the board had a meltdown over Shavodrick Beaver's decommitment, and we ended up with Denard Robinson.
I might defend my opinions a little too much sometimes, but generally, I think you'll find that I'm pretty level-headed. As a fan, I tend not to get too high or too low. I could learn some restraint from some people on the board, but there are plenty of people on this board who get a little too emotional and start saying crazier stuff than me. At least I keep my comments centered in reality.
I'm going to shock myself and vehemently defend Magnus here.
First, he's always a tireless debater. He's responding to all points because he always does. He's not "going off the deep-end", he's being Magnus.
Second, he's right. You're acting like he's nuts when he's the one person that kept a level head about the Trent shit. Who cares what the fuck Trent says? Is it changing the fact we're being hit with charges? The Free Press' treatment of us? No. So let it go. People are getting legitimately angry and upset about this, and he's saying "Woah...chill," and HE'S being accused of going overboard? Please.
All three, actually, but Magnus can be a bit condescending at times. Just a wee bit...
Agreed. I'd rather have a pedagogue who is most often right (Magnus) than rampant ass-hattery, however.
Yes Magnus, that would be a back-handed compliment.
I'll try not to get accustomed to it.
i have no problem with him being right or correcting shit. i only made the comment because i've seen at least 4-5 threads over as many days clogged with him getting into trivial debates with people he very obviously thinks are beneath him, all the while playing a game of 'lulz you care so much you keep replying' chicken. it's just tiresome.
I, for one, would rather have him thoroughly take down someone for being and idiot than have idiots run amok on the forum.
I'll keep my kids away from Mangus (that pedagogue)!
if he was saying "whoa, chill" i wouldn't have made the point. when he spent what looked like 2-3 hours calling people various forms of 'asshats' and attempting to overzealously condescend anything remotely objectionable in one night... that's when i say he went all Raekwon and Ghostface Killah. to be completely honest, i think you didn't see the thread i'm referring to. dude LOST it.
For the record, I rarely call people names. I tell them why I think they're wrong, but calling people names is unproductive and childish.
If you notice, in this thread I told TOB exactly what I thought was inappropriate about his comment. Nowhere did it devolve into simple name calling.
In the other thread you're talking about, once again, I criticized what people were saying. Maybe you thought I was "going nuts" BECAUSE you were drunk, because I was actually being rational compared to many of the posters.
He's more of a "buzzkill" than outright negative. He's just calling someone out for making a really shitty comment.
I have no love for The Detroit Free Defilers of Michigan Football, but joking about shooting them is borderline sociopathic. Someone thinks that's funny? That's a twisted sense of humor. Being "negative" or contrary in relation to that is a good thing.
it wasn't really a reference to his original post but the continuous follow-ups and the past 3-5 days of board activity. as i said before, i was fuckin hammered and i still was like 'this dude is goin fuckin nuts... do i have any pizza in the fridge?'
if i could give you a +1 i would.
Dude, NBD. I mean everyone kills people, murders people, steals from you, steals from me, whatever.
gets enough credit for this comment. It is obviously genius - look at how many different situations in which it can be used!
in their gas tanks. A lot easier.
Also, Karo syrup. Even better.
I'm sure Rosenpuke and Shyster have had plenty of "bananas" in their "tailpipes."
Just give them the virtual bird.
I didn't look at the link before I clicked on it. You just mind freaked me into clicking on a freep link.
I blame it on the 10 1/2 hour work day.
Damn it I feel like a dick.
It's a Freep link, so they can cram it with walnuts.
Well, if coach Rod didn't, I did. Either way it has been taken care of. Rest easy
Testiest thread ever or of all time?
"douchey mgoblog users" will forever hold that title.
