"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."

- One from a team doctor that this kid's knee is so injured that he will likely never be able to contribute to Ohio State's football team, despite the fact that it is a relatively minor and common injury, and
- One from Dr. James Andrews that this kid's minor and common knee injury is in fact minor and common, and that his long-term prognosis is roughly what one would expect from an injury like that.

He was a good player, and certainly not a dumb person. He just happens to don the Order of Leon Lett.

The amount of energy needed to accelerate something increases as the speed increases; it's harder to add one mph to an object when you're travelling at 5000 miles per hour than it is at 50 miles per hour.
As you approach the speed of light, the amount of energy you would need to accelerate approaches infinity. So not only would the outer train not exceed the speed of light, it wouldn't even get close (even in a universe where we're ignoring the physics of thousands of trains stacked on top of each other).

If you get two very different diagnoses, and one makes a hell of a lot more sense from a medical standpoint, then Occam would ask "why?" Because Occam would see two diagnoses:
And he would see that the differing diagnoses happened to correspond to the need to clear some scholarships. And he would see that a major Power-5 team snapped the kid up in a heartbeat to play roughly the same level of football that he was supposed to be unable to play. And he would be like "okay, bro, I get the point."

|3 weeks 2 days ago||Hearsay is a REALLY tricky concept||
Things can be hearsay, they can be not hearsay, they can be non-hearsay (which is different than "not hearsay"), and they can fall under a hearsay exception (which is different than the first three things).
Police reports meet the general definition of hearsay (as they are the words of an officer relaying what a witness said), and are generally inadmissible as hearsay, even though they would seem to fall under the "books and records" exception to the hearsay rule.
But yeah, while the report itself would be hearsay, the fact remains that it contains first-person accounts. So if we're just talking about it in the colloquial "you can't trust hearsay because it is a game of telephone," then this stuff isn't that.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Agreed||
But again, he wasn't just charged. He was charged and pled guilty (albeit to a lesser offense).
Now, does a guilty plea automatically mean he did exactly what he was accused of? Of course not. But it isn't a matter of waiting for the legal system to sort things out.
The broader point is that there is a gaping chasm of difference between constitutional and legal rights in a criminal proceeding and the reaction of the general public (like, say, a potential employer). It's the reason the Seahawks asked him about it in the first place, even though the legal aspects were resolved; an employee's prior inappropriate conduct (whether illegal or just unsavory, and even if he's already "paid his due to society") is absolutely relevant in a job interview.

By quoting Wu Tang, your argument is automatically superior.
Those are the rules.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||In a legal context||
Hearsay is an out-of-court declaration introduced in court for the purpose of proving the truth of the matter asserted.
This isn't hearsay.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Likewise||
With the words "due process."
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I dunno||
I don't think it's that he didn't deserve to get drafted. For me at least, I'm more miffed that they literally said "we don't think it happened," which is a REALLY hard conclusion to come to with the available evidence. This does a disservice to pretty much everyone.
If people are upset that he was a second rounder, it's because after an NFL team priced in the negative aspects of this, Clark was still picked at what most would argue was the highest he could realistically go from a purely football standpoint. In other words, they didn't see it as being a substantive negative.
DGB is Megatron-level talented, and he fell like 30 spots for what he did. Shane Ray fell a dozen spots or so because WEEEEEED. Clark, notsomuch.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||On behalf of the legal sausage factory||
Not only does "not guilty" not mean "innocent," Clark wasn't even "not guilty." He pled to a lesser offense based on the same event and facts. So, in the eyes of the law, he is guilty.
Ace and the others raising this issue aren't saying he's guilty. We're saying the Seahawks didn't CARE if he did what he was alleged to have done, and to claim they did a thorough investigation when they only talked to Clark is, legally speaking, weak shit.

Michigan owns any copyrights in the underlying work (which I'm assuming are in the public domain anyway), and presumably these kids would own the copyright in this derivative they (I'm assuming) created. Is the tune yanked from an existing broadway piece somehow?
