|2 days 20 hours ago||Huh?||
What idiot is wishing we had Marty Mornhinweg again? Dude went 5-27!!
I get that Caldwell isn't a guy a ton of people love, but he has the best winning percentage of any Lions coach since the 1930s (Not counting Moeller's 1/2 season)
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Also, no one passes better than LeBron.||
"Also, no one passes better than LeBron."
LeBron is a great passer, and I'm not taking that way from him... but you're making a claim that is just flat out not true.
I'm not saying Curry is better, i'd actually make the argument that they're pretty much equals when it comes to passing (and stats pretty much agree with that too.)
|4 weeks 3 days ago||You're all good||
You're all good mate, like I said.. I'm pretty stupid. :D
|4 weeks 4 days ago||I don't||
I don't get it... There are no lineman in Hockey, and linesman are refs not players. BUT I'm also an idiot so I'm proboably just missing something.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Weight Classes||
I think the better option isn't really to change all the weight classes (though I don't have an issue with that) but simply weigh the fighters in a few hours before their actual fight. Removes the drastic weight cuts before the fight, and you'll have more and more fighters fighting at their actual weight, rather than cutting down for an advantage.
I've never really heard a solid reason why that can't be done.
As for the tapping issue, it's on the ref to protect the fighter period. Sure, a guy can tap out from head blows, but you hardly ever see it because they've been trained and told over and over not to do that. Not saying some of the blame doesn't go to the figher for not just giving in, but I put a lot more blame on the ref for not stopping the fight when he should have.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Good Point||
Also a very good point. Those bans did make some sense too, early UFC was BRUTAL. (And I'm a horrible horrible person and loved the hell out of it.)
|5 weeks 4 days ago||They're just different||
"How the UFC doesn't come under as much or more scrutiny as the NFL is kind of silly to me. I know these are grown men and they make their own decisions but I for one would be glad to see McGregor go out while he still has all his faculties."
They're just different beasts altogether. There aren't anywhere close to as many kids/teens fighting in MMA as there are playing football, MMA isn't in the same realm of popularity as the NFL and the long term health impacts of fighting in MMA still aren't really known, though one can speculate.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Training Injuries||
Training Injuries are the biggest issue that Dana White is facing. Over the past 3-4 years that seem to have gone up dramatically, so many great fight cards have become horrible as fight after fight has to be postponed due to injury while training.
I don't think he minds as much about superstars losing, as one thing they do very well is hype up fighters to take the previous superstars spot.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||What?||
McDonalds discontinued the McJordan?
... way to ruin my year.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Me too||
I honestly was a little surprised too. It's a little below average, but still above the "red zone" (according to McShay)
|14 weeks 1 day ago||I'll put some money down||
I'll put some money down the attendance will be well well over 3,000.
I get how the timing can be disappointing and frustrating for some people, but I don't think it's all that big of a deal, it's just the spring game.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Oh god||
The mental image is now stuck in my head... why did you do this to me?
|15 weeks 4 days ago||+1||
At first I thought it was ridiculous that he was apologizing and such. Once I read it and realized he was apologizing because he didn't notify ESPN, it made a lot more sense. (And is something he probably should apologize for, I was pretty surprised he didn't talk to them about it.)
|16 weeks 4 days ago||So||
So you're positive this happened under Hoke, but can't name a single recruit that it happened to.
|17 weeks 1 day ago||While||
While I do not disagree the NCAA is incompetent, they also don't have a ton they can actually do either. They have very very little power, they can't make anyone talk to them, and they don't have the power to look into anyones finacial records either.
Someone pretty much needs to be caught with their pants completely down, or they need to get lucky and piggyback on a federal investigation to really get hard and solid evidence.
|19 weeks 3 days ago||Fair enough||
Fair enough, so what TV News outlet do you feel are better?
|29 weeks 1 day ago||Woah||
Woah, the OP mentioned things about what is and isn't appropriate and I gave an opinion from personal experience, certainly wasn't from any type of moral high ground, but a "I've been there and it got a lot worse for me" ground.
Also, my comment wasn't about having a beer or a glass of wine more days than not, but getting buzzed or drunk more days than not. Even then that doesn't mean someone has a problem though, hence why I said "usually not a good sign."
|29 weeks 2 days ago||Less than 1 day||
Less than 1 day a week. But... lots of reasons behind that one.
As for what is and isn't appropriate, if you're drinking more days than not, that's usually not a good sign.
|29 weeks 6 days ago||There would not have been an un-timed down.||
It doesn't matter when the penalty occured in relation to the time on the clock, since the play ended after time had run out Miami would not have gotten an untimed down. They will never award the offensive team with an untimed down after a penalty. If the flag stood and Duke accepted the game would have ended right then.
|29 weeks 6 days ago||The Mobile||
The Moble app needs a lot of work when it comes to viewing deleted posts, and deleted topics crashing the app.

|30 weeks 4 days ago||I can assure you||
"I'm just mystified that people are so offended that a news channel with a perspective that's not their own exists."
I can assure you that's not the reason most people dislike/ are offended by Fox News.
That said, getting a little off track here (And I know I'm helping oh so much with this comment! :) )
|33 weeks 5 days ago||Meh||
I disagree. Don't get me wrong... he is an absolute joke when it comes to being a GM. However, I think he is one of the better CC guys out there. There are times it's difficult because I'm thinking "Why the **** should I believe you when you say that guy is good?" For the most part though, I think he does a good job.
He's no Spielman though... why it always pains me to say it, Speilman is the best CC in the biz right now.
|33 weeks 5 days ago||Only thing I know||
Only thing I know with FS1/FS that I had major issues with was their Golf Coverage... cringeworthy.
Other than that I haven't had much of an issue.
|36 weeks 5 days ago||Completely Agree||
I love noon games as well for pretty much those exact reasons. I also just love the look of playing under the noon sun.
|37 weeks 3 days ago||Meh||
Reading the quotes from the players, I don't really know if that's all that accurate. I think, if anything, Harbaugh may have been more aggressive/rough with them than Hoke.
It is, of course, possible Hoke didn't. Especially when you factor in the play on the field. Just the process of watching film with the entire offense/defense is a very very common/basic thing. I'd be surprised if anyone who has played organized football hasn't experienced it.
|37 weeks 4 days ago||Totally agree||
I totally agree it isn't as simple as my post makes it seem to be. However, I would like to see some figures as to how much money a University makes when they remove the "paying ourselves" portion. If memory serves (and it frequently serves me wrong) that was a point that came up during the O'Bannon case and the judge could never fully get over the fact that the schools are paying themselves, and then saying they aren't making any money... because they paid themself.
|37 weeks 4 days ago||Naw||
Not what I want, simply seen that suggested before (I want to say it was Bomani Jones that brought it up.)
I do think it's an interesting option though. A lot of kids don't actually value that scholarship like other people think they should, and would value the money a lot more. But, as I said, it does introduce a lot of issues.
|37 weeks 4 days ago||I simply||
I simply said that it's not a door opener you apparently think it is. That doesn't in-turn mean I don't think it will help open any doors and is a worthless thing. Just not the number of doors your post seemed to imply.
|37 weeks 4 days ago||Yup||
Yup.. that's exactly what I said with my response... that it's a waste of space...
