I'll side with CMR here, I've been apathetic about the NFL for some time now, but with the way they've handled things over the last few months, I'm done with them.
Is the smelliest kind of horseshit, and there's loads of studies that prove that corporal punishment just does not work with kids
|1 week 3 days ago||There's no substantial||
There's no substantial evidence for it, but the scuttlebutt is that Desmond wasn't necessarily happy with how the program was handling his number/legacy.
Trying to tread delicately too, but part of that included that all of the retired jerseys were white guys, and meanwhile the program is (hopefully unintentionally) ignoring it's first black Heisman trophy winner.
Hence why he was the first Legends Jersey to be unveiled
|1 week 4 days ago||But the Purdue Administration||
But the Purdue Administration still has some share of the blame. In 2011, with Hope leading the team to an electrifying 6-6 record, they decided to give him another year, and never even tried to pry Kevin Sumlin (a Purdue alumni btw) out of Houston.
Then they deliberately chose to go cheap and hire a so-so MAC coach

I'd hope we wouldn't, but look at last year. OSU was on a 2-year winning streak and there was a lot of people arguing that Auburn should jump OSU for the NC spot
|2 weeks 3 hours ago||Except||
Except the original thread title had no ish on there. It was just "Duncan Robinson to wear Legends #22"
|2 weeks 3 hours ago||No arguments here||
Just disagreeing with WD's original thread title, labeling it a "Legends Number" (dun dun dun)

I get it's hanging in the rafters, but we don't need to extend the football teams silliness to our BBall team

As long as they start underwhelming October 25th, I'll be happy

Why not just drop a link to their site, instead of copy/pasting the whole thing?

Because Mike Valenti paid him to do it.
I mean seriously, just imagine all the mouth-breathers that will be calling in to 97.1 on Monday. It's gonna be a pretty big boost for revenue

In other breaking news: Water (in a liquid state) has been confirmed to be wet

Just like the fact that everyone from Hoke's first class (and some of the 2012 kids too), are never going to play Wisconsin.

Obviously I'm just another message board guy, but this all went down at Skeeps weekend after 4th of July

I dunno, would Florida really go after another highly-touted Defensive Coordinator? I would bet they're gonna look for someone with HC experience
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Agreed here as well. It was||
Agreed here as well.
It was fun, but if they ever have two Champions League teams here again, they need to loosen up on the restrictions.
We all probably knew about the no bags rule, but I heard more than a few people complaining about it. Then there were no noise makers allowed, or flags, or flag poles.
I mean someone correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that basically soccer fandom? Banging on drums, chanting/cheering, and waving your teams flag around?

I don't anybody says this is 'needed', it's just a nice extra

Good. Get some use out of the stadium, I'd rather go to the Big House for a movie night than to some park with a junky projector and screen/tarp.
Now I think it would be better if it was open to the public, but that's just me. You could show off the stadium to kids from families that can't necessarily afford a football Saturday
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Dany Heatley - 1 year deal||
Dany Heatley - 1 year deal with Anaheim, 1 million flat. No bonuses. 2013-2014 stats
Danny Cleary - 1 year deal with Detroit. 1.5 million plus 1 million in bonuses. 2013-2014 stats
Those last few lines, where Cleary has all 0's, are playoff stats. Yet he earns more....
|9 weeks 6 days ago||It's really hard to buy the||
It's really hard to buy the "Detroit is a struggling city where athletes don't want to live" meme when the city has, you know, 3 other professional teams. The Lions, Tigers, and even the goddamned Pistons haven't had as much trouble attracting free agents as the Wings have had.
I mean that argument implies that athletes have to live exactly in city borders, and can't just go live in the suburbs, like the rest of the rich people in SE Michigan.
Second, see the tweet below. Guys like Jurco and Mantha aren't going to be up with the Wings, because of signing over the hill guys like Cleary and to a certain degree Alfredsson. Did you forget that last year Nyquist and Tatar both started the year in Grand Rapids? Imagine where we would have been if instead of Cleary last year (8 pts in 52 games) if we had Nyquist the whole year?
This is a shitty signing, on top of several years of shitty signings and roster management
|9 weeks 6 days ago||This just infuriates||
This just infuriates me:
This organization absolutely refuses to give the younger players a chance, and instead we're signing over the hill players who aren't helping the team.
What's that Quincey? You're playing bottom pair minutes and everybody can't wait for you to be out of town? Hahaha nope! How about 2 more years and a raise!
Same for you Cleary. I know you only 8 points in 52 games last year but made 1.75 million, but fuck everything, I said the Wings would take care of you this year, and instead of giving you a scouting job somewhere, I'm going to give you another hockey contract, and give you a raise!
|9 weeks 6 days ago||I really don't know what to||
I really don't know what to say. The Wings have slowly been creeping backwards since 2009, and Holland has done jack all to improve the team since then.
It's time for him to go

I was gonna say, doesn't that cover all of his posts?

Dunno if you'll actually see this or not, but I'd be interested in that.
I'm mostly rubbish at the game part of it, but I definitely fit the bill athletic wise

There's no way in hell that happens.
If the new president comes in waving his dick around, DB is definitely gonna push back
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Exactly this. You want to||
Exactly this. You want to argue about seeing Barry Sanders, or Denard Robinson, or someone like DeSean Jackson? That's something to think about.
But not, LeBron, or Megatron, or any other of our "best" athletes. It bears repeating, the US isn't getting out-athlete'd when we play.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||I sorta agree. I think||
I sorta agree. I think complaining about it is generally useless, since it's well already happened. But why not have 15 minutes of bitching before getting on with everything

How can you "uggghhh" that? You weren't even alive for one of those, and what, only two years old for the other?
