Is for lovers.
|1 week 2 days ago||Yup||
That's the way I think it happened also. His mistake was being compassionate to an animal, and now the lemmings have turned it around oh him. You learn early on in life, and the business world, to keep your friends close, and your enemies closer. His only crime here is underestimating how many athletes would be sympathetic to Rice's cause.

I think Paul George, really summed it up strong, when he tweeted " I don't condone hittin women or think it's coo BUT if SHE ain't trippin then I ain't tripping.. Let's keep it movin lol let that man play".....

If you weren't aware, Ray Lewis was was on the news self proclaiming himself as Ray Rice's "mentor". I got a semi-chuckle out of that.

I may not agree with your statement, but I do agree with your Two Hearted picture. Man alive. Tasty.

"He has done basically nothing to dissuade players from beating up women." Are you saying that in jest? If you keep thinking that the responsiblity to ensure domestic bliss, is on Goodell (or anyone, but the individual), you'll continue to be let down. I'm shocked you think it's on Goodell to "DISSUADE" them, from beating up their wives. As if it's innate, or human nature, to abuse, and Goddell has to try and teach them otherwise? Maybe you are right about that...maybe it's so far beyond repair, that we should just accept the fact he employs criminals, and just take it for what it's worth...good football. But I tend to think otherwise. Like i said ealier, this has nothing to do with Goodell, and everything to do with the criminals he employs, and subsequently, how we punish them. If that's Goodell's fault, then may I suggest a warm home in the Alaskan wilderness with a population density of one human, per 90 square miles. There tends to be less crime there.
|1 week 3 days ago||Yea....||
That was Goodells fault too
|1 week 3 days ago||Are you||
Talking about Goodell, or Brandon?
|1 week 3 days ago||So...||
The blame lies on the individual or entity who handles the crime, rather than the criminal? Something ain't right here.
|1 week 3 days ago||If you||
Follow Mayweather, I feel bad for you.
|1 week 3 days ago||Wrong guy||
This isn't about Goodell. It's about Rice. Media is doing a great job of convoluting the issue at hand. Which of course, is that Ray Rice and an enormous amount of NFL players don't have the ideal relationships with their girlfriends/spouses. By ideal, I mean historically sound husband, wife, children, marriage. It's an alarming trend of infidelity, abuse (as we see with ray rice, or however you want to define it), children out of wedlock, selfishness, and Irresponsibility. What you have here is a microcosm of US demographics that is rearing it's ugly face. Shifting blame, falls on my deaf ears, and should do the same for most. With that said, I f@cking love football and will continue to engross myself in everything related to it. #goblue

So, I started thinking, what Ray might attempt to do, to put himself in a better light. Jesus, was of course, at the top of my list, but then I started to put a couple issues the NFL is dealing with presently, together: Violence, and Concussions. Will Ray Rice say that concussions have left him depleted of the ability to control his emotions, and thus his subsequent physical actions? So will Ray jump on the concussion bandwagon, and claim that he wasn't a violent person prior to the assualt of his fiance. I think this may be the likely outcome.
|1 week 6 days ago||Bingo||
I thought the exact same thing. She was knocked out! What type of force could the NFL (or anyone for that matter) have imagined could have been used to knock a human unconscious, that would alleviate the severity of the assault...... 460 pillow strikes, and excessive tickling? I mean...Good Lord. Before I saw the video, i imagined he either grabbed ahold of her head and slammed it in to the wall, or did exactly what we saw, punched her out. Now that I know he is not only a criminal, but a liar, he's best left to judicial system, rather than the court of public opinion. I'd be surprised if this doesn't go to trial. I can't imagine that with this evidence, they actually need the wife to give her consent (or accusation), to prosecute him. With this precident set, I suspect we'll see more girlfriends/wives, coming forward against other athletes. Yes, i know, it transcends all aspects of life, but I think that once a punishment is dulled out in severity, you'll see the stigma of being a rat, somewhat removed.
|1 week 6 days ago||how long....||
Until Jesus rears his holy face.
|1 week 6 days ago||You're right...||
It would look terrible. I can't imagine any team, picks up an abuser, and risks the wrath of the public, as well as endorsements. I'd assume any company, who backs a team, would put themselves in great public ire, if they were to back a team that backs Ray R. Now, and it's a big NOW, what if he declares he's turned his life around, with the help of Jesus, and deserves another chance? I've noticed that Jesus...maybe because he's unable to speak for himself....tends to lend his assistance to those between a rock and a hard place.
|1 week 6 days ago||Spectacular...||
Now of course, the conversation will revolve around which team would/could pick him up, if the Union determines he was wrongfully terminated. I found it intersting that on MIke and MIke this morning, they kept repeating that Ray couldn't be punished twice, and the Ravens had no grounds to re-punish him. Well, that was flat out incorrect. Bravo Baltimore. What a pile of S.
|1 week 6 days ago||ha.||
Good to go. I'll stick to appreciating the Drinking Thread for awhile.
|1 week 6 days ago||Reminds me..||
.....Of the guy on NFL Radio (Sirrius) this morning that pointed out that she was unconscious because her head hit the railing, and it probably wasn't the second punch that did the damage. Words cannot begin to explain how rediculous that comment is. Un-Effing-believable. The real sad part of this situation, indeed, is that the woman continues to think he's a worthy husband, most likely, due to his deep pockets. When he gets back to the NFL, off his suspension, I hope he's treated like he's in the clank. I'm sure there are some gentlemen who feel strongly about what he did, and might want to take it out on a guy running up the middle.....
|1 week 6 days ago||x||
No intent. Just shooting the S like I was bellied up to a local pub. There's obviously some guidelines that I crossed. I did, however, remember enjoying the "he's definitly a domer, 'look he has only 101 mgopoints', he can barely start a thread". The "he's not worthy" angle is one for that will never go away, so i'll just have to be patient with it. I'm going to work on being more worthy, soon.
|1 week 6 days ago||Out?||
What kind of out do you want? I'vebeen considering coming out of the closet for almost 5 years...... I"m blond haired, blue eyed, and enjoy Saturdays.
|1 week 6 days ago||Thanks...||
55+ year season ticket holder. Fathers ashes at the stadium (I'm sure mine will be also). Alumni. In other words...."a domer". Defending one's affiliation, is a real f*cked up part of athletics. Honestly, thought it might be a bit different in this blog, but it's clear there are many who just want to attack others. I think it tends to come from those...that maybe didn't graduate from Mich, but in retrospect, deleting the thread maybe saved me some more personal attack.. Again, my bad...won't do that again. BTW...the pictures were from when I worked for The Capital One Bowl. If you had access to the press box...you'd get a good feel on what type of individuals are backing Michigan, and who isn't.
|1 week 6 days ago||Strib||
"Strib's Girl" sat in front of me on Saturday. At least that's what her jersey said. She wasn't happy about the touchdown he gave up. Not one bit happy.
|1 week 6 days ago||Mom||
Morgan was on travel roster to. With a cast on his arm. LIke i said, not a big deal, probably shouldn't have started the thread and I felt bad afterward, especially after 50 or so, "you are a Pile of Sh*t" responses. But it was pretty clear that he wasn't going to play. Especially when the mom's start talking about it. A Mom's word, is like GOLD, as you know.
|1 week 6 days ago||I think #5 is a bit rowdy.||
I think that's an emotional statement. Probably not accurate. Coaches play games on injury information, every single week. Belichik is the king of it. But...you and I are what makes this team what they are. Been that since the day they first put on a leather helmet, and strapped on their suade jock straps, all the way up to Saturday's loss. I can promise you, that Brandon, and the powers that be, including Hoke, put sufficient stock in their fanbase. It's the entire marketing strategy. True, maybe not as much to the non-alumni as the alumni, but both contribute significantly to the successes of the team, and the incoming $. I'd reserve the "you and I are not important" declaration, to maybe a government rant....
|1 week 6 days ago||#5b.||
.......And if you start a thread giving everyone a heads up that Jabrill Peppers isn't going to play, it gets deleted, and trollers tell you that you are a "Domer", and that your priviledges should be revoked. Figured most people on this site were beyond that...but it appears not so much last Friday. Maybe it was the nerves.
|2 weeks 6 hours ago||Manhandling||
I was at the game in the corner of the end zone where I feel like Funchess was lined up a good portion of the game. I cannot believe how inefficient and unable he was, in shaking off their tiny cornerbacks. We all know he couldn't block....but he can't shake blocks either. He was getting knocked off his route all night. Good for him for proclaiming "no one can match up with me", and it appears ND felt so strongly about it that they left him In single coverage, all alone, all night. Without complaining too much, this was an absolute manhandling. All night long. To rub insult to injury, ND fans were nothing but hospitable and friendly, and their beers were colder then ever. Time to look at ourselves in the mirror.
|2 weeks 7 hours ago||Funk||
Isn't Nussheiser our O cord? Didn't we just score zero points? Maybe Funk deserves a shot
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Reverse it||
Comparably speaking, would Michigan fans say the most enjoyable games (assuming high percent of victories) are teams like Minnesota and Purdue? Doubt it.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||point taken...||
Solid point. I changed the title up a bit. I'll tell you what, for my first post on here, there's quite a backlash on "proper technique". Everyone has a solid point on the "rumor" post, , and for you sailors who are talking about infractions on the "parents bus".....get ahold of yourself. If you think the parents don't organize transportation, you're sorely mistaken. Hey, he either plays or he doesn't. Ultimatley, it's interesting to to note how hush-hush UofM/Hoke is about injuries and it's something for fans to consider when attending (or watching), the game. Looking forward to a good game, I'll be there, with Bells on (the kind that ring, and the kind you drink..Oberon style), and hoping forward to a spectacular atmosphere.
