It was also written by Wells and equally a piece of crap.
|1 day 19 min ago||Actually||
Actually, Richie hasn't played again in the league yet. He was signed but we will see if it sticks. So he was blackballed from the league for as long as Rice. The difference being Richie is still npretty good, but Rice is considered a fading star. Rice isn't getting a second chance as much for his current abilities as for his current baggage.

If this bothers us more than the use of sweatshops than we have bigger issues.

But Randle El played WR his senior year in college and looked far better at it than we have ever seen Gardner look. Gardner appears to be a great person and I would love to see him succeed in the NFL, but he never looked good at WR and I suspect that is a large part of why the Patriots did not keep him on the 90 man roster after the initial practices.

What other players have handed over their phones? I too would not just hand my phone over to anyone who does not have a warrant. Refusing to submit to a search that is unfounded does not make you guilty, it makes you smart.
|2 weeks 14 hours ago||Yeah||
That whole winning record and playoff victory thing was terrible. I hate seeing QBs lead teams that way.
|2 weeks 14 hours ago||Not an issue for Brady||
The "deflator" was already questioned twice and since they had all his emails and texts, getting Brady's end of the conversation is probably not an issue. I see very little downside for Brady. Though on some level I would like to see him tell the Pats to shove it for not standing up for him.

But I still have shirts from Nike's last four years and they are the same color as what adidas has sold in recent years. The point being, if Nike had kept the contract we would, in all like
Though it should be noted that the adidas shirts rarely last more than a year or so, which is reason enough to drop adidas. My experience has been quite disappointing. But then again, I am not a collegiate athlete using this gear either.

I still have the Nike shirts, their Maize is the exact same as the Adidas, please stop with this crap.

And when you are making the right decisions it doesn't get in the way.

The thing is the evidence is pretty clear they have not been doing it for years. In fact the text messages specifically point to one game where Brady complains that the balls were way overinflated.

If they covered up a murder they would have not received a suspension and be working at ESPN, see Ray Lewis.

While I agree this is crazy in so many ways, the lawyers will be hampered by the collective bargaining agreement. Not sure there is much they can do outside of a standard appeal. But I sure hope I am wrong.

All GMs have a pride issue.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Not always||
I used to attend every game with my father, who was also an alumni. He did not stand up real quick and could not stay standing for that long. So no, he was not doing it wrong. When you are the only one standing in your section, these are the people you are hurting.
I am not saying everyone should sit on their hands the hole game, I am saying you need to use your brain and understand not everyone just graduated yesterday. Personally,mi can only hope to attend games as long as he did and if I can help make that experience possible and enjoyable for others for their entire life, I want to do it.

Here is the article I was talking about:
As an aside, this would mean the waiting list was gone before Brandon.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Waiting list||
I thought Hackett announced that they now had a waiting list for season tickets for the first time since 2007? Based on that, I would say your odds of getting them for the minimum donation are low.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Student Athletes||
If one were to believe the athletes were in fact student athletes, then you would have to think this is a good idea. Time to adapt to college and the pace of classes before having the additional pressure of games and all that comes with it would almost certainly benefit the athletes in the classroom. Though those athletes would still have to take advantage of that opportunity. And a potential fifth year for all athletes would always be a plus.
I would be there are some players on Michigan that would have much preferred that someone would have forced Hoke to redshirt them. In fact, I think you could make an argument that this rule does nothing but help the athletes.
Follow me here for a second. In football, this rule would give a year less of full game contact for all players. Those that are good enough for the pros can still go after three years and have one less year of pounding on their bodies from games. Those not good enough for the pros have the potential for a fifth year and hopefully all at least had more time to adapt. And none of them had a redshirt blown up to play a couple downs in a meaningless game.
In basketball, they receive a year of good coaching, more time to maybe learn something in classes. And have much less risk of injury in games and, quite frankly, less chance their stock will drop because they actually are no good on the floor. That last point would benefit many more than most think, though not the NBA.
The only people this might actually hurt is college fans, as its one less year of seeing many of the best athletes on the college fields/courts before they leave for the pros.
Just an alternative thought.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||It won't kill Big Ten athletics||
Let's be very clear. Delany has only suggested this in the context of an and NCAA wide rule. He is not the first or only one to suggest such thing, as Brian had brought up in a post months ago. In no way is anyone suggesting the Big Ten should implement this alone. Please read the links before posting, it helps.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||maybe not draft stock||
But it will hurt his endorsement value. He is a no name now. He will get an endorsement, as everyone does that is drafted, but it will not be close to what he would have got if he went to college and was successful. In the end, I would bet it costs him more money not going to college.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Not so much||
The average life of an NFL player is almost 20 years shorter than that of your average American. I'd say it is more than a small fraction that are having health problems.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Disagree||
Watch rugby for a while, you will see that taking away the pads does not mean you have to eliminate contact.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Doubt it||
Watch rugby for a while, nobody dies and it is actually safer from the CTE perspective. Note I said safer, not safe.

I'd bet a lot of money this is a pro Michigan crowd. DC has a big Michigan fan base and Maryland football is not exactly a huge draw. This will look a lot like games at Northwestern.

I have Nike maize search that is every bit the highlighter yellow as Adidas. Stop that myth.

You should probably read my post all the way through.
|11 weeks 4 hours ago||Love to see it||
But I believe ESPN did it last year also. It's as heavily skewed as you would expect it. But the problem is that are you comparing guys like Peyton Manning to a seventh rounder who is just not good enough. I know you were going a different direction, but the point I was trying to make is that early rounders get more of a chance to succeed, where as late rounders get ejected from the league for poor performance.
|11 weeks 7 hours ago||What||
I am not sure what that has to do with the post. I was not saying if you were drafted late you were doomed.

I can't bring myself to give money directly to Mayweather. The sporting world went crazy over Ray Rice and Mayweather has made Rice look like a saint. In boxing your money goes straight to this one guys wallet, hard for me to justify.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Not dumb||
If you are the NBA, it is not dumb. Why not require your re employees to have more experience? Why not require they have enough experience so that you can make a good call on how they will perform, especially since you will pay them millions. If I was in charge of the NBA they would need at least three years of college and have completed credits in business finance and marketing. I want my employees to not only be able to play, but to understand the business.
