Brady Quinn is turning out to be extremely good at his current job. I love his color commentary and he comes across as well-informed with none of the hot-take disease.

I generally defend WD and I think people on this blog bag on him far too much, but that post had me like

Maybe you're broken.
Hm. That got a bit deep.

Try reading INTO what I'm saying rather than just one word after another.
As I said in my very first comment that you jokers apparently ignored, depression can be environmental or it can be due to a physiologial chemical imbalance.
Environmentally triggered depression can definitely be mitigated with meditation and mindfulness, which are both what you get when you take some Eastern religious practices and strip out all the woo-woo. I see this whole "critical thinking" thing is hard.
Chemical imbalances can't be fixed by religion or "thinking better" or "lifestyle choices" or any of that. You basically took a shit on the entire idea of pharmaceutical treatment upthread, which is something I don't wish to leave unchallenged.
I've been consistently making this distinction and yet somehow you're still lost.
|1 week 2 days ago||Yup||
My depression and anxiety are environmental, not chemical, so meditation and mindfulness are excellent practices for mitigating these.

I have multiple comments in this board post. "Above" meant "upstream." Try a little harder next time.
Those AA studies are loaded with problems.
I didn't go out of my way. I saw bullshit and identified it. It's not my fault that bodies are stacked daily due to people believing false things. Children die horrible, painful deaths because their parents ignore medical treatment in favor of woo. I guess caring about reality makes someone condescending. So be it.
|1 week 2 days ago||whut||
I said exactly this above. This supports my case. My case is the latter, but there are loads of cases of the former, and telling these people to eschew medical treatment and just go outside and play in the sunlight is garbage.
Yes, let's look at the "success" of programs that are dishonest about disclosing any real statistics that could be used to ascertain effectiveness. We have no idea how effective AA truly is. Someone's going to hammer me on this because either they or a loved one likely has a success story here, but that's utterly irrelevant to my point.
Popularity is not indicative of success. I find the "higher power" nonsense to be psychological enslavement, and believing false things for bad reasons isn't anything I'm about to support.
|1 week 2 days ago||lol||
Appealing to fiction to solve a medical issue is rather laughable. Grow back a limb with prayer and get back to me.
Tons of depression cases are due to a chemical imbalance. No amount of navel-gazing is going to fix that. You are spreading dangerous nonsense.

Depression describes a range of medical issues, some require pharmaceutical treatment, some don't. This is my unprofessional opinion as someone who struggles with depression.
Has she consulted a psychiatrist? I have a hard time believing that multiple doctors would be so useless and flippant as you portray.
|1 week 2 days ago||Same here||
Never done it, and now that I work in the aerospace industry, probably never will.

This is something that should have been obvious to bring up at some point during the 10th assistant coach thing. Leveling the playing field is great, but the timing here is groan-worthy.
|1 week 3 days ago||True||
I pos'd you because you didn't post a poorly written and overdone hot taek as a new thread.
|1 week 3 days ago||Muh||
I'd rather have "kick myself in the scrotum" Wednesdays, and I'm a soccer player myself.

A couple of those calls were either dogshit or should be dogshit. The rules need to change with the prevalence of rollout rugby punts. There's no way the defense can be expected to just hang out and let a punter roll out and dash forward a bit before punting.

Have fun in Bolivia. No skin off my back. A shame to see you about to fall from being a respected insider to little more than a butthurt troll whose favorite player isn't lovingly caressed enough by the blog writers. All because you can't control your emotions.
The groupthink accusations and pretentious self-righteousness are the cherries on top.
|1 week 5 days ago||dude||
You're doing a good job earning that label, so I'm not about to take anything you say very seriously. I have a low opinion of your honesty on this topic. You're not being objective. You're carrying a torch and it's insanely obvious to a number of users.
|1 week 5 days ago||Again||
|1 week 5 days ago||Bolivia, please||
Spam the board, get posting privileges revoked. Easy.
|1 week 5 days ago||woof||
M-Dog's charactization of a Little League dad is pretty-spot on. If that quote gets you upset enough to make baseless, laughable accusations directed towards Brian, then you need to step away for your own sake because you're starting to put a foot into helicopter territory.
|1 week 5 days ago||Gahhhhh||
|1 week 5 days ago||Nope||
Speight is 6'6" and heavier than Peters. Both are technically bigger than me, but Peters is barely taller and not much heavier. JBB, Newsome, Ty Wheatley...those guys are gigantic.
Hurst isn't small, either, and had full arm extension to bat the ball. When you're close to the QB and he's throwing a dart over the middle, you don't need to execute a volleyball block. Watch the play again. Throwing a football isn't like a jump shot where a taller dude can just lob it over a defender easily.
|1 week 5 days ago||Hm||
Some Sharepoint type thing is what you're looking for. Not sure if there are good free options. Probably want something subversion-compatible.

Once again, the most important part about having an opinion is understanding when people give zero fucks.
|1 week 5 days ago||It is personal||
Stephen tried to be nice and you didn't just take it and sit down. So I'll be less nice...you're butthurt that the blog isn't singing the praises of Higdon. Clearly you can't be objective here, and you're not even going to try for whatever reason. Take a break.
|1 week 5 days ago||???||
Peters is big, but not gigantic. Speight is larger.
The batted balls were both Hurst, and on the second one he lunged forward and swatted it basically as soon as it left Peters' hand. Hurst is not a small dude.
|1 week 5 days ago||Peters||
The throw around 1:27 of the highlight vid is the one that makes all the talking heads tumescent with glee. Hash to the opposite sideline on a rope. That's an NFL arm.
|1 week 5 days ago||sigh||
Was this thread really necessary?
The important thing about having an opinion is knowing when the rest of the world just doesn't give a shit.
|1 week 6 days ago||huh||
I see the Asshole Association decided that Easter was a good time to all show up in the same thread.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||That's good of you||
Business culture in the US today generally involves shitting on employees who just want to make the right decision for themselves. Thanks for breaking the mold.

When there's nothing to complain about, invent something.
