|2 weeks 2 days ago||I don't||
I don't think anyone thought every cavs fan was booing it.
And your Cavs are totally dead man.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Well||
Chess is considered a sport by the IOC soooo.
|3 weeks 5 hours ago||Aww Yiss||
Aww Yiss I beat you by 3 minutes. :D
|3 weeks 6 hours ago||I'll post it here too||
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Uhh no||
Sorry pal, you and your buddies may do that. "90% of men" don't.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||And how the hell do you know he isn't fine with it?||
And how the hell do you know he isn't fine with it?
It's clear that you're not OK with it. That doesn't suddently mean Harbaugh isn't OK with it. So please, inform me or show me some proof that Harbaugh isn't fine with it... cause your "promise" means literally nothing.
|4 weeks 17 min ago||What?||
You mean, before people get engaged they're not dating 10 of the most beautiful people in the country at the same time, with their pick of who they want to marry? That's crazy talk.
|4 weeks 56 min ago||Hmm||
I'm not too sure this is any different from 1985, or 95 or 05.
Kids taking visits to other schools after committing really isn't anything new.
|4 weeks 1 hour ago||It doesn't exist||
Harbaugh has no policy or restriction at all on kids taking visits elsewhere after commiting.
|4 weeks 1 hour ago||Not Unsettling||
I don't find this unsettling. Kids should take their visits and enjoy them.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||How||
How do you know the response of the person who interviewed you?
|6 weeks 7 hours ago||Hmm||
"Silencing by triggered/offended/SJW groups happens all the time on college campuses these days, but that doesn't mean it's not a tyrannical approach that disenfranchises minorities and allows the privileged to persecute the powerless."
Could you elaborate on that one?
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Hmm Seems to be missing||
Hmm your timeline seems to be missing the "Urban Meyer signs more scholarship athletes then he has avaliable scholarships for" on your timeline.
Can't imagine why you'd leave that piece of informaiton out.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Can't||
I can't disagree with that one at all.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||That's fair||
I was a HUGE fan of www.firejoemorgan.com so I enjoy that style of just tearing an article apart, but can easily see how it's just snagging low hanging fruit (which... it totally is haha)
|7 weeks 5 days ago||This sums up my issue||
This article sums up my issue with Simmons pretty well... yeah deadspin I know.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Actually read it||
Read the NLI and let me know where it guarantees them a scholarship once they sign.
I'm no lawyer and may be just completely missing it, but I don't see it guaranteeing anything. The Finacial Aid Agreement does, and while signing that is part of the NLI, the NLI itself doesn't seem to guarantee jack squat for the student athelete.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Advertisers||
While I 1000% support the NFL taking a very hard stance on domestic abusers and similar. The main reason why the NFL is so different has everything to do with where the NFL is getting their money. Advertisers and a growing amount of the fan base want to see the NFL take strong action against domestic abusers because of the massive amount of attention the NFL gets. I mean... money talks.
It's not necessarily about the players being role models, but the NFL being able to take action and tell a huge chunk of society, including millions and millions of kids and teens "This is not acceptable. If you want to have the privilage of playing pro football, you can't do this stuff."
As the old saying goes "With great power comes great responsbility" The NFL, and their players, have a great amount of power in society. Far far more than a car wash does... unless that car wash is owned by Walter White.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Haha||
Before I even clicked on the link I thought "It's so going to be Pasha" :D
|9 weeks 2 days ago||YYYeesssss||
BoxeR is literally the player that got me into eSports 10 years ago. Use to download and study his replays. Greatest ever.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||He's right up there too||
Jaedong is in my top 5. Shame how he has fallen off over the last year too.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||They weren't playing LoL||
They wern't playing LoL, they were playing Heroes of the Storm.
Both are MOBAs, but they're pretty different games.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||SC2 Pros are all over the world||
There are SC2 pros all over the world, not just South Korea. The scene in south korea is certainly different from the rest of the world though, and the best 8-12 players in the game today are all from south korea (and i'm being friendly when I say that, in reality it's really the top 16-24 players are all korean. There are no stephano's around anymore.)
You also get awesomeness like this in Proleague in Korea: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nv-KLL-Dkdk
I love me some MC. Shame he's fallen off over the last year and a half.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||It's also a grind||
I can totally see it as living the dream, but it's also an insane grind. The successful twitch streamers almost always are 6-7 day a week guys with no sick days type of deal, it's also pretty hard work as the best ones are constantly talking and interacting with their viewers. And if you're not one of the lucky few that can kind of pick and choose what game you want to play, it becomes an even bigger grind of playing the same game day in and day out all day long.
Twitch viewers are also notoriously flakey, if you take just a few days off you can lose a lot of your viewers and with them their money.
Don't get me wrong, there are far worse jobs out there, but it's a lot more difficult and a lot more of a grind than just playing video games for a living.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Uh Oh||
Look out guys, he played ladder matches 5-10 years ago. He totally knows what he's talking about. </sarcasm> ;)
What games and what clans? Honestly curious, if it actually was some legit top teams that actually competed in some eSports events I'd give more credit to your argument.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Social Aspect?||
What social aspect do you think it's missing?
|9 weeks 2 days ago||the announcers||
The announcers do it as a profession. Artosis and Tasteless live in Korea and cast major SC2 tournys for a living (have for a few years now). Day9 has made a living off of casting and steaming for 4 or 5 years now too. All 3 are former pros as well.
EDIT: Hehe, replied to someone on the android phone app and that post doesn't show up here. :)
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Heh||
Pro gamers are more talented at their game than 99.99% of the population. They have talent, its just not athletic talent that you correlate with sports.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Eh||
Eh, Freedom of speech doesn't mean there are no consequences for the things you say or do.
I don't believe the University of Florida can take any action aginst them for what they did to the Flag since it's a public University. Their fraternity, however, very much so can.
|10 weeks 17 hours ago||Well||
He gave commentary from the view of a black man as to why black men aren't as interested in the game. That doesn't mean he was making it a "race issue."
And he did offer a solution, make the game more appealing to black culture. His view was if MLB were to do that, blacks and american youth in general would follow the game more.
