I'm honestly surprised folks still pick up the national magazines. I only read Bill Connolly's AB Nation previews and Hail to the Victors the past few years. The rest all reads like fluff to me.

Er, he was fired two months before he died.
|1 week 6 days ago||Watched the match from Grant||
Watched the match from Grant Park in Chicago with tens of thousands of other U.S. fans. Disappointing to lose, but thrilled to advance! Go Von Trapps!
|2 weeks 16 hours ago||His choice, any choice as you||
His choice, any choice as you point out, proves my point because it is correct. The whole point is that the word is a racist slur and that example makes it clear on a personal level.
|2 weeks 16 hours ago||Saying you would call a||
Saying you would call a minority that has been persecuted for centuries a racial slur to their face puts one on the right side of history?

...but he did exactly that?
|2 weeks 16 hours ago||Anyone arguing in favor of||
Anyone arguing in favor of the continued use of this term should go read Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee before they say one word more on the topic. Educate yourself.
|2 weeks 16 hours ago||You've made my point for me||
You've made my point for me right here. People who insist on using a slur as a team nickname are entitled, selfish, and racist assholes. Way to be on the wrong side of history. Say hi to all the other detritus of American history for me.
|2 weeks 16 hours ago||Way to deflect the question.||
Way to deflect the question. I will assume my point stands, then.
|2 weeks 16 hours ago||Would you feel comfortable||
Would you feel comfortable going onto a reservation and calling a resident there a "redskin" to their face? No? Then maybe it shouldn't be used to refer to those people in abstentia, huh?
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I am not used to anything but||
I am not used to anything but Michigan football making me feel so tense. But the victory dance across my living room was so worth it!
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Do we know why exactly he||
Do we know why exactly he decided to make the switch? Committed to early? Negative recruiting?
|4 weeks 1 day ago||That bolded part will never||
That bolded part will never not be the worst wow experience ever.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Congrats on being king od the||
Congrats on being king of the douches for today. Your ridiculous standards of beauty and latent misogyny set a high bar for us all.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Welp. Hope he does whatever||
Welp. Hope he does whatever is best for him.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||I didn't realize he had||
I didn't realize he had another year of eligibility. Good luck to him.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Why is he holding up an||
Why is he holding up an Oilers jersey at the draft? Is Brady Hoke a Time Lord?
|11 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah, those garnet helmets||
Yeah, those garnet helmets are pretty awesome.
|12 weeks 22 hours ago||Absolutely disgusting.||
Absolutely disgusting. Reading that story made me a rage hurricane.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||Godspeed, gentlemen. I will||
Godspeed, gentlemen. I will miss your lights-out three-point shooting and soaring dunks.

The official twitter feed didn't list McGary as inactive for tonight!?!?!
|20 weeks 3 days ago||Everything about this amazing||
Everything about this amazing and hilarious. Love that Hall is profiting on the greatest moment of his career and love the spelling error.

I am bald. I can make this happen.
|22 weeks 4 days ago||I'm of the view that language||
I'm of the view that language is correct as long as it conveys the user's intended meaning. Yes, there are rules and those can frequently be "broken," but the whole damn system of human communication is centered on lingual rules being borken ad infinitum.
Long story short the OP's complaints may be valid but are also uselessly pedantic and will affect little. It literally makes my head steam.
|23 weeks 2 days ago||The staggering amount of||
The staggering amount of wealth and income disparity in this country disagrees with you. And that's all I'll say for fear of the policitcking ban hammer.
|23 weeks 2 days ago||Hats off to these kids. One||
Hats off to these kids. One of the most exciting and positive bits of news I have seen in days.
|23 weeks 3 days ago||When we hired Hoke Franklin's||
When we hired Hoke Franklin's resume consisted of a good year as Maryland's OC. Not to short his resume, which, despite the naysayers in here, is quite impressive, but I doubt Brandon even remotely considered him.
|25 weeks 5 days ago||Isn't that more a reflection||
Isn't that more a reflection of the Dave Brandon AD than Rich Rodriguez's PR skills?
|26 weeks 20 hours ago||Woah. Color me very||
Woah. Color me very surprised. I wonder if there's someone who got freed up by a recent coachign change that Hoke wanted to spring for?
