I did the survey but thought I'd expand. My son is only 1, but I do not suspect he'll play football. My wife has already stated her opposition to the idea, and interestingly her father (Grandpa), has adamatly stated he doesn't want his grandson to play. He does have some authority on this, as he played D-I football on scholorship, and has numerous physcial ailments as a result of years of football.
Personally I'd rather he find a different sport, but there are issues with others too, including repetative head injury (soccer, lacrosse) which we are getting more and more research.
But hell, he's 1 fergodsakes, I'm just thankful that he's healthy and hope he can play any sport for fun!

great plan. I voted after it was changed. Interesting seeing the breakdown AFTER, & just going with the eye test at first (I voted the nike T, guess darker is my preference)

All college sports done. Enjoy the winter finals everyone (NHL nba) because the sports winter is coming (until glorious pigskin in the fall)

My wife has the most common name from the year she was born and about the 3-4 on either side of it too. Always had at least one other in her classes with the same name. Wanted badly to avoid this. Our son has an uncommon name. Not hard to get, and is more common as a last name. Didn't think it'd be hard to pronounce but people are getting it jumbled (Beckett-Beckham)

Anybody else feel like this was the longest 4 day week ever? O well. Almost done. Bang Bang!
|8 weeks 5 days ago||So hopefully that doesn't||
So hopefully that doesn't become a big deal but a question for those who played...how does the umpire overrule the 1st base official who was in a better position to make the call?
|11 weeks 2 days ago||Unfortunately yes. Nike pays||
Unfortunately yes. Nike pays for his AAU team & can (not officially of course) threaten to pull funding for his team (& coach) and otherwise put pressure on him. That's the stick, the carrot is guarantee sponsorship deals if he makes it to the nba

Doesn't look like there's a spot at this moment but he'd be a terrific option if levert declares

Good morning! Happy Friday! Let's get after this weekend w EUTM!

Great for them! Can I ask why ucla is in our same regional?

This is quickly turning into an ironic posbang (well except for NM, an obvious troll who this is clearly not a 1st account). I guess I'll mention it's on the front page to qualify for the posbang. Everyone is +1 (well...except...yeah)
|19 weeks 6 days ago||Dawkins. Wow. He's gotta have||
Dawkins. Wow. He's gotta have a starting spot locked down for next year at this point right? I mean even if it finally clicks for Chapman or we get Wagner, he looks like a GR3 in Belein's offense now.

I was half joking when I had said this in the thread when he was released. I guess the half serious side won out. Good luck!!!

Whoa. As a rookie I'm surprised they didn't try to season him in the D league or something. Ok then. I guess there's always the sixers.

Yeah that one still feels pretty good! Enjoy the bus ride loser bucks

That's the idea. That's why I kind of like this idea (looks like I'm in the minority). Forces the student athletes to be students first, then work in their sport. Would prevent the 1 year nba tryout

|23 weeks 5 days ago||Yes! This! Everybody shits on||
Yes! This! Everybody shits on G3 but I thought it was a good movie. The problem is that it (of course) gets compared to the 1st 2 which are some of the best movies ever made so a good movie will pale in comparison.
|23 weeks 5 days ago||Really?!? Their making a 4th.||
Really?!? Their making a 4th. I have a strong feeling it could ruin the series. The 3rd really was perfect (can't remember what happened in the 2nd though)
|23 weeks 5 days ago||Their shooting a scene for||
Their shooting a scene for the new one across the street from where I work. I can't say I love the movies but Magnus never ever say that in Philly...you'd get ur ass kicked
|23 weeks 5 days ago||Great place for this opinion,||
Great place for this opinion, one of the worst bond movies I've seen (although some of the Moore ones were just goofy)
|24 weeks 6 hours ago||Not that you would in your||
Not that you would in your current condition, but don't even think about having a drink (also, avoid mouthwash with alcohol). Unless you wanna be the sickest you've ever been in your life.
