... I know the CMO of Smashburger. Not sure if that's to whom you were referring, but he's a good guy in my book. Then again, I wasn't smashing my burger with his.

... but according to this guy, Malzone wasn't one of the top performers of the day.
Keep in mind, performance is evaluated based on 6 throws, which pretty much means it's meaningless... unless of course he had done well, in which case it would have been more meaningful.

first name, "the".
|1 week 2 days ago||"Very happy"||
... after the debacle that was last year and the loss of two NFL tackles I assume a mediocre offensive line that leads to greater than 1yd/carry average will make you "Very Happy." If you're expecting more, I'd love to have your optimism in life.
|1 week 2 days ago||fair question...||
...and difficult to say, but:
1. goalkeeping is so much about proper positioning to be in the right spot for a save or to force a perfect shot.
2. He let very few rebounds up on some hard shots. That's critical when you are being shelled. A lesser goalie would have let a couple rebounds loose for goals.
in my semi informed opinion, it was a masterful performance in net.

It is a shame that the team struggles so much to play effectively together. Belgium looked 10 times better than argentina did today. I'm rooting for argentina, but don't know if they can match the consistency and teamwork Belgium brings.

... I kinda like it and prefer bold designs to dull designs like Ford Field, which simply looks like a giant warehouse in the aerial view and an office building from street level.
I will say, though, I don't like the opening at the top of Atlanta's new stadium. For television viewing, it creates awful shadows, even if it protects the fans from inclement weather conditions.
Ford Warehouse (with gaudy Ford advertisement on top):

... think it's dangerous to compare racism towards minorities by a majority to racism towards the majority by the minority. Yes, all racism is bad, but the two shouldn't be viewed as exact substitutes.
That being said... a great example of your point is the horribly xenophoic and offensive comments Wilbon made towards Klinsmann on that stupid show on ESPN. Imagine if this comment was made by a white broadcaster towards a minority coach. I'm offended that Wilbon still has a job after this rubbish (and I'm not even white).

... that's why it was so easy to implement this decision.

... is nothing compared to where we are in college football and college basketball. With the influence AAU programs have, the backpacks filled with cash, the fake classes, the handlers, etc... I assume you don't watch college athletics anymore?
I used to hate on that team and the embarrassment to the program. As I've gotten older, I've realized what is embarrassing is the people that control the system. How are 18 year olds supposed to behave differently, when all the leaders in their sports behave far worse? Are they blameless? No. Free will, and all. But, I direct my vitriol in a different direction now that I'm a little older and realize it's all rotten to the core, and the players are not the core.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Just weird...||
... he has some serious issues, especially considering the timing, the risk of being caught. Just foolish behavior that you have to believe he cannot control. I mean if you need one goal, you are up a man, and you are in an attacking zone, and your first instinct is to bite the defender to break skin, you clearly are not a sane individual.
God knows Fifa is toothless (pun intended), but I can't wait till they find an excuse to ignore this one. Always comical.

|3 weeks 3 days ago||Beasley and tactics question:||
... Question for those who know soccer tactics. Given that it was clear what Ghana was trying to do by attacking on their right wing, shouldn't our left midfielder have been tracking back harder in support of Beasley?
It just felt like there was always so much space for Ghana to simply enter a pretty dangerous area for crosses into the box without even a challenge and with only one defender (Beasley) left on an island.

who knew that existed...
|3 weeks 4 days ago||disagree...||
... Lack of leadership is usually a lazy catch all excuse for failure. Was it on field leadership, was it discipline, was it inability to motivate, was it bad game planning, bad training, etc... Leadership is too broad a term to pinpoint exactly what the problems were that led to poor performance, but it is a convenient general term that people too lazy to dig deeper or unwilling to admit the truth use as reasoning.

When exactly do you mean. See I've already waited too long and now my hope is gone.
|5 weeks 11 hours ago||It happens everywhere...||
... I've seen some of the papers for classes like communication of Michigan basketball players when I was in school in the 90's. They received Bs for what I would generously call average middle school quality writing. it happens at every major program...

... from a visual design perspective it is 100% absolutely terrible quality. I could create that graffic in powerpoint. Compared to the materials I've seen published out of other schools (like OSU), it looks bush league. You would think with the budget we have in the AD you could get some high quality visual designs for these things. I'm all for selling the sizzle, but fuck me, that is one ugly visual.

...they coach more than what they say in press conferences... But when you rush 29 times for 29 yards, your offensive vision and your coaching don't match the rhetoric.
