"I have no interest in controlling her actions"
Saying if she lives at home with you then she can't go to parties isn't controlling her actions? Or saying that she has to sit next to dad at football games?
I get the point you're making about not being able to pay for everything, and that's totally a legit and fair point. But it sure sounds, from what you've said, that you're actually interested in controlling some of her actions.
EDIT: I may have misread your posts a bit. Sounds like you don't care if she goes to parties, just that you think if you pay for her rent elsewhere you're paying for her to party. Apologizes.
|6 days 15 hours ago||How disappointing||
How disappointing that you think that way. Why not just let your daughter enjoy the college experience? Why try and control her actions by holding money over her head?
It's awesome that you're paying for college and giving her a place to live, seriously it is, but you shouldn't in-turn try and control what she does because of it.
|6 days 15 hours ago||Did you||
Did you actually read the post? Or did you stop right when he mentioned renaming things?
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Everyone||
Everyone is of course entitled to their own opinions. Nothing wrong with not liking JUB.
That said, you're not maybe in the minority, you are in the minority, at least on this site.
I, personally, greatly enjoy his work.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||I don't||
I don't think anyone thought every cavs fan was booing it.
And your Cavs are totally dead man.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Well||
Chess is considered a sport by the IOC soooo.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Aww Yiss||
Aww Yiss I beat you by 3 minutes. :D
|7 weeks 4 days ago||I'll post it here too||
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Uhh no||
Sorry pal, you and your buddies may do that. "90% of men" don't.
|8 weeks 4 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.
|8 weeks 4 days 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.
|8 weeks 4 days 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.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||It doesn't exist||
Harbaugh has no policy or restriction at all on kids taking visits elsewhere after commiting.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Not Unsettling||
I don't find this unsettling. Kids should take their visits and enjoy them.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||How||
How do you know the response of the person who interviewed you?
|10 weeks 4 days 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?
|12 weeks 2 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.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Can't||
I can't disagree with that one at all.
|12 weeks 2 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)
|12 weeks 2 days ago||This sums up my issue||
This article sums up my issue with Simmons pretty well... yeah deadspin I know.
|12 weeks 3 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.
|12 weeks 5 days 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.

Before I even clicked on the link I thought "It's so going to be Pasha" :D
|13 weeks 6 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.
|13 weeks 6 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.
|13 weeks 6 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.
|13 weeks 6 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.
|13 weeks 6 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.
|14 weeks 4 hours 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.
|14 weeks 4 hours ago||Social Aspect?||
What social aspect do you think it's missing?
