"Definitely" was the word that didn't work for you. You did not offer an opinion, you stated a certainty.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Timeout||
Apparently appy called timeout before the third down speed option that Wormley assassinated.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Charter buyout||
Comcast did not buy out charter. In fact, in many areas comcast plans to divest customers to charter as part of the time warner acquisition.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Where||
Op, where do you live? If you are in The Chicago or west michigan area, we need to have an email convo before you buy. I have a close friend that is a rep for comcast and I know he can do better than the package you posted for $100

Love that flick even though the critics decidedly thought otherwise.
Goodnight Mrs Parks!!!!!!

Was his name Billy Wyatt?
A million fake internets to anyone that gets this obscure movie reference with a Michigan connection.
|27 weeks 48 min ago||What if....||
How about rather than changing timeouts, they made the following rule change: In the last 5 minutes of regulation and all of overtime, on any non shooting foul that would result in free throws, the coach of the team what would be shooting can opt to have his team inbound the ball in lieu of shooting free throws.
This would eliminate or lessen instances of teams fouling in order to extend games and come from behind. To me it is ridiculous that teams are able to intentionally commit fouls to their advantage. If you commit fouls you should not benefit from it.
|32 weeks 5 days ago||Not my favorites, but||
I have rooted for Gavin Groninger, Dom Ingerson, Avery Queen, and Kevin Gaines. Maurice Searight was a recruit that I was excited about.....so glad things are better now.

Clinch a share, boys.
|34 weeks 4 days ago||I got||
A 33. Could probably do higher had I gone faster at the start. Ran out of time with 10 questions to go.
|34 weeks 6 days ago||arrogant humans||
The issue is that as humans, we can often get quite arrogant and forget that we ourselves are part of "nature" and the ecosystem.
|35 weeks 19 hours ago||Two words at the end.||
This post needs the words "this season" added at the end of the last sentence to avoid moments of heart-sinking like the one I just had.
|35 weeks 5 days ago||Robinson||
Is it just me, or does this site no longer have GRIII on any of their mocks?
|35 weeks 6 days ago||Probably not, as it would||
Probably not, as it would require no one going pro, Hatch not being able to go on medical, and no attrition otherwise. I just meant to show that there is a legitimate way to get to 13.
|35 weeks 6 days ago||Horford||
Even if Hatch does need to be on scholarship, there is a solution. Horford could be given the fifth-year firm handshake. It would be unfortunate as hell, but there is no oversigning to be seen here.
|38 weeks 4 days ago||You are looking for "than"||
You are looking for "than" instead of "then" in your first post, and "grammar" in the second.
|38 weeks 5 days ago||Late Subs||
The late subs thing has been something of a Beilein staple I think. Not that other coaches dont use that tactic, but late in close games, Beilein almost always seems to be making a substitution on that second FT.
|39 weeks 3 days ago||Die Hard||
Die Hard does not equal Die Never. No team has my allegiance so much that I could never fire their asses. Not saying that i was ever a huge Pistons fan, but unconditional love does not apply to sports teams.
|39 weeks 4 days ago||Speculation vs Sources||
I think that the difference here is wild speculation vs a source close to the situation saying "this is happening".
|40 weeks 5 days ago||Tram||
Ozzie Smith got in with something like 92% of the vote on his first ballot. Any voter that voted for Smith and hasnt managed to vote for Alan Trammell for 13 years is a complete horses ass, and should be voting for the National Backflip Hall of Fame.
Tram was a vastly superior offensive player to Smith, and while not quite his equal with the glove, it was way closer than the gulf that separated them with the bat.
|40 weeks 6 days ago||Amen||
Upboats for you sir.
Fran went nuts about the Bo Ryan Wisky homer refereeing fiasco part 2,139. Good for him. I might not want to see John Beilein go nutso like this, but this Wisconsin getting away with murder has to stop.
|41 weeks 3 days ago||wow||
It is really neat to discover that Joe Dumars posts here, but what does Joe D have to do with the Bronx? Odd username for an NBA GM.
Seriously though, people arent complaining about McLemore or Zellar because most people on this board are Detroit sports fans, and are not concerned with the Charlotte Bobcats. They are concerned with the Pistons.
Surely you can understand how Detroit fans may be perturbed that their GM did not select the National Player of the Year from a nearby school, that these fans happen to already like. That feeling is furthered when the guy that was picked ahead of Trey is not wowing anyone by any stretch, while Burke is looking like a rookie of the year frontrunner.
Maybe Trey wouldnt have made all of the other Pistons better players, but its entirely plausible that he could have made some better too. To dismiss him because he hasnt elevated each and every Jazz player is plain silly.
The statement that is most ludicrous is "he's not going to continue to play if he doesn't improve on those numbers". Really? If Trey doesnt up his field goal %, the Jazz are going to go ahead and bench him? Come on. The Jazz were 1-12 without him. They are 10-13 with him. The only reason they would cut his minutes would be to tank for the lottery. He may not be a perfect player, but I think that the differences in the Jazz' fortunes with and without him show that Trey Burke is a very adequate NBA starting point guard. Maybe he wont be more than "above average". But from the looks of it, KCP is probably not going to ever get to "average".
|41 weeks 6 days ago||Arguably||
Not sure if he is top-25 in my book, but Rafalski would not be out of the discussion either. 7 of the top 40 is a safe statement.
|42 weeks 20 hours ago||I am torn||
I would like to see Shanahan on one hand, as I think that he might be the better fit for Detroit, and his QB coach was high school teammate of mine.
I would like to see Kelly on the other hand, as I am a Michigan fan living in SB and the sweet sweet Irish tears if Kelly left would be fantastic.
|43 weeks 6 days ago||Unfortunate....||
I dont agree with his views, so I dont listen to him. I also feel bad for him on this. Unfortunate that he got burned. No one deserves that, obviously.
But it does make me shake my head in disgust the way his lawyer quoted up early to the news.
"“He’s a public figure on TV and does the Fox pregame show on Sundays,” Thurswell said. “He also meets with clients. Even today we don’t know if there will be any residual scarring...or hypopigmentation, where a white spot appears instead of normal skin color.”
-From The Detroit News: http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20131217/METRO08/312170058#ixzz2nliqQ2aj-
Valenti probably deserves some compensation, but the posturing from the lawyer is unneeded in the news story. Yuck.
|44 weeks 2 days ago||I certainly see where you are||
I certainly see where you are coming from. To me, the difference here is that the ball went out of bounds. Someone had to make a call, and maybe no ref had a good angle. I can get that kind of call, because there was no option to swallow the whistle if you arent positive that you saw something.
But to blow your whistle and stop play when you dont have to, to me, makes it a bit less excusable.
|44 weeks 2 days ago||I am with you here. Often I||
I am with you here. Often I see people on this board talk about "one call shouldn't beat you, play better" or some such comments.
In this case, I feel that it is pretty obvious that one incredibly questionable foul call changed the outcome of this game. Can't blame the players, they played well enough to beat #1.
