Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."

LSA, honest question, and I hope it doesn't come off the wrong way.
If you are convinced that it is not a scare but a very real problem (a premise I think represents your thoughts), what are your thoughts on the morality of supporting the enterprise as-is (via TV viewing, ticket purchases, much of MGoBlog, etc.)?

Really good thing to bring up. The claim that Sterling is so morally bankrupt as to be undeserving of owning an NBA team is not appealing to me - even murderers have a right to property, collecting on investments, and so forth. However, Sterling voluntarily agreed to stipulations regarding his ownership. I don't often like the idea of vigorous housing associations or what-have-you, but if one agreed to that type of restriction on ownership, one should be held to it.

I'm confused. Is this what he wrote or what you say could fly? Presumably because he never states "earned BBA" as such?

That was his last reference - it is formulaic, but said formula is proprietary, so no one can evaluate the methodology on its logical merits.

I like to say that I was rejected from U-M with a 35 ACT and 3.79 GPA (because it's true!). But there were mitigating circumstances.

Seriously, I don't think it's possible to be that guy. The attention to this single type of cancer makes no sense. The wearing pink and commenting on it and "Liking" it is more often than not pure sophistry.

Good points by all regarding the complexity of this sort of stuff being so huge that one truly can't condemn Brady just based on the bits of his personal life that seep into the news. However, my original comment did not claim he could never coach or be a role model, nor that he is a worthless scumbag. I loved his speech, loved the Brady 6 documentary, loved the Moving the Chains book on his success. To interrupt a bit of hagiography with a criticism certainly should not rustle feathers so greatly. Without touching politics/religion/other items that are rightly separated from this discussion board, I stand by my assertion that family and romantic situations do not simply happen to one, and are part of one's overall merits and demerits. Brady has obviously made the best of the whole thing anyway. Just some food for thought!
|48 weeks 6 days ago||I don't mean to be annoyingly||
I don't mean to be annoyingly contrarian, but I am also quite serious. Brady leaving Moynahan just as she became pregnant and beginning to date Bundchen the same month is a significant minus as far as his accolades are concerned. Sure, currently a variety of "family models" are tolerated, but leaving his baby like that is a detraction to his credibility of being an all-around potential Leader Of Men.

I'm with you there! Ideally the revenue game would make ADs financially independent of the general fund.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||That makes sense. My question||
That makes sense. My question really would then be, "Given that the increase in revenue from BTN and other sources has far outpaced inflation, how is that revenue being spent?" If most of it truly has gone toward coaching salaries, then the fundraising would be legitimate in my eyes, because coaching is a pretty big part of upping the ante. But with Kill making <$2M, I wonder if that revenue is gobbled up bureaucratically.

|1 year 2 weeks ago||What I don't get about this||
What I don't get about this is the money will be privately fundraised. Much better than taking on debt, but it doesn't fit the bill in terms of "using the incredible revenue the Big Ten brings in for raising the competitive standard." If I were a potential donor and was hit up for this project knowing that there are tens of millions of dollars in new revenue that aren't applied to this...well, thankfully no one is going to hit me up as a donor for about a decade.

I agree, Magnus - even Coach Palka said he thought the team overachieved. I think a lot of people will be interested in to what extent he can build the program to maintain such success.
In re: Tater, though, I'm not sure a seven-point loss sealed by a late interception against the defending state champs qualifies as having nothing left in the tank.

Saline seats around 4,000, maybe a few more.
In my totally biased opinion, the highlight of the stadium experience is Saline's version of Carl Grapentine: Jere Hassberger, the incredible AP calc/physics teacher, former wrestling coach, and doctor in nuclear engineering via U-M.
