I think she was well aware.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||I got the impression that was||
I got the impression that was a calculated decision. She knew Jon would be outplayed by Ramsay and she was willing to (if not planning to) sacrifice Jon... He just got lucky. As I mentioned in a previous post, I think Sansa is reaching her "final form".
|5 weeks 3 days ago||I think you guys might be||
I think you guys might be getting ahead of yourselves. Let's see how next week goes.
I think there's clearly some conflict brewing between Sansa and John... And I fear Ramsay may have worn off a little too much on Sansa (NTM Joffrey, Cersei, Little Finger, etc). We'll probably have to wait until next season for any of that to play out. Not sure what to expect next week.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Her "transformation" was||
Her "transformation" was immediately preceded by her meeting with her brother... Where he begged her to make it stop. I think she's trying to save him with the added bonus of isolating the king from Cersei.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||I like her character and||
I like her character and don't see how she's at all comparable to Cersei. She's cunning and ambitious, but when has she used that to hurt anyone who didn't deserve it? Cersei has been an evil little shit since early childhood.

I don't think "believe him to be guilty" was the standard for conviction. I don't know/care enough about the case to have an opinion about whether or not the prosecution should have resulted in a conviction. But generally speaking... I'm glad the standard is a little higher than "I think he/she did it".

No conspiracy theories from me. Just the obvious practical implications if looked at critically for more than 10 seconds.

Not locked yet? Ok...
Information is power. It's not just about your personal privacy, or if you "have something to hide". It's about having control... The ability to monitor and manipulate the people as a whole. Even "metadata" (that people love to dismiss because it's not something "important" like a dick-pic) is extremely powerful in the right/wrong hands. If you want to say... Identify and disband some type of "dissenters"? Like a MLK, perhaps?
|30 weeks 1 day ago||Told you so!||
Give me my negs!
Because... I told you so (most recently in my last post 3 weeks ago)!
It's funny watching so many now act as if this wasn't hard to see coming. It shouldn't have been. But it's been a lonely opinion to have around here for some time.
|33 weeks 2 days ago||The only reason I've put any||
The only reason I've put any weight into the assumptions that Shane will be leaving is because of vague "inside info" I've heard rumblings about. I've seen nothing publicly to make me think that's the case and the circumstances up until now certainly don't lead me to the conclusion that he's on his way out. I think he may have very well just wanted another year to work with Harbaugh and compete for the job. Rather than wasting a year of eligibility as the #2 behind a 5th year transfer.

"Details available!... Just not here."
|43 weeks 3 days ago||I don't think they were||
I don't think they were predicting a total destruction of BYU or that our single/close loss would be to top ten-ish team who would utterly destroy the Ducks.
The actual 3-1 looks far better than the preseason hypothetical 3-1s.
|45 weeks 4 days ago||Any polls this early are an||
Any polls this early are an absolute joke. Arguing where we do/don't belong is just silly. But they're not going anywhere... So I try to look at them as the mindless amusement they are (like ESPN).

I guess this as good a place as any to go on record and take my lumps...
I think Smith is the guy, with Isaac mixed in (pretty much what got week one). I also think the results will improve going forward.
I think there's a ton of misplaced hope in Drake and there was a lot of "right time, right place" involved in his success last year. Add in another injury to come back from...
If I'm wrong?... Wonderful!
|46 weeks 6 days ago||I think the bigger concern is||
I think the bigger concern is that Rudock made a bunch of bad throws/decisions that weren't INTs... Or in addition to the INTs.
I thought he was supposed to be the guy who takes care of the ball and doesn't lose games? If he's not, than why not try the "dangerous" guy with the big arm and mobility?... Unless of course it was never even close and Shane was never really in it?
But I'm just thinking/drinking aloud... I do trust Harbaugh (even more so on this than in general). If Rudock is still the guy I'm sure it's the right decision.
|46 weeks 6 days ago||I thought Smith was given the||
I thought Smith was given the tougher job and asked to go against a stout run D focused heavily on just that.
Isaac was given better chances to get some space due to the situations and play calling when he was up. He did what he was asked and I thought he looked pretty good.
Smith missed a couple holes but I was impressed with how hard he was to bring down. I think he'll have a big year.
I think they'll both play similar roles going forward as they did tonight.
|46 weeks 6 days ago||You can't be everywhere, all||
You can't be everywhere, all of the time, without some occasional over pursuit and failures to make a play. Not to mention maybe being a little too amped up under the circumstances.
"Let's see it in a game first" has been my feeling on the Pepper's hype (though I was optimistic with the overwhelming amount of it). I'm now 100% sold. The kid looks amazing.

Looks like Fox Sports Detroit (663 on DirecTv) will be showing them Mondays at 5:00 eastern.

I just finished season 1 a couple weeks ago and I'm pretty excited about S2.
Currently watching Mr Robot... Good show.

This is worse than covering competitive eating, video games or poker. At least those involve actual competition. WWE is a soap opera.

It's amusing how much different the tone of this thread is than the one from a couple weeks ago. I'll stick with Shane...

Most overrated feature ever. If anything is tempting me to get and Xbox it's that Elite controller... And confirmed Fallout 4 mods (though they're probably coming to PS4).
|51 weeks 5 days ago||Shane Morris. I think he gets||
I think he gets an opportunity to play this season even if he's not the starter on day one. I think he'll make waves when he does.
|52 weeks 8 hours ago||I don't know... Reading the||
I don't know...
Reading the HTTV position previews thought we might run the table... Then in the back they all predict 7-5!
Honestly, I'll be somewhat disapointed with fewer than 9 wins (with bowl) including an upset against OSU or MSU.
Sky's the limit on the upside. I think we have a ton of untapped talent that's ripe for a breakout. I don't think it's crazy to think Harbaugh could "shock everyone".

I voted Shane. I actually think Rudock is the safer bet... But I refuse to be associated with those writing Shane off and denying that he's got a good shot at it.

Yes, 68 is way too many IMO. I think 8 would be the sweet spot for football.
