lol. I'm pretty sure listing your real real dumb identity politics grievance list isn't sticking to discussion about policy.

Nah, Thanedar's numbers have always been really shallow. High name recognition due to his nonstop ads but also high disapproval. One poll released today has Whitmer up by 25 points with the other two tied, which is basically what you'd expect once people started paying attention.

Lots of people flee most big cities for the suburbs. It's the circle of life.

05/30/2018 - 3:16pm One of the consequences of a

One of the consequences of a fully armed population is that arguments become shootings. Since this is the country we apparently want, as long as it's not random violence it's not that much to be concerned about.

10/22/2017 - 2:08am Lol. Our fanbase fucking

Lol. Our fanbase fucking sucks because of all the people like you. So many of you dipshits who have never played a sport in your life care more about being "right" about whatever bullshit opinions you're trying to push than just having fun. It rubs off on the team.

07/13/2017 - 2:03pm It's bigger because it would

It's bigger because it would consolidate other jails that need to be replaced. And even in a worse case scenario tax credits for a set number of years really won't screw the city any more than building a massive county jail complex directly in the central business district would. That's a hundred year mistake, was always incredibly stupid and crooked, and I'm constantly shocked there's so many people against this rare opportunity to reverse a massive blunder.

I would be completely shocked if that wasn't just light-hearted banter.

It was Angelique Chengelis, actually. She said she was just thinking Onwenu and forgot the others. It happens.

They moved up the start time, they didnt cancel it. Get a grip.

08/19/2015 - 11:53am Ilitch getting a new stadium

Ilitch getting a new stadium and deciding to drastically increase payroll had a bigger impact.

08/19/2015 - 11:46am As others have already

As others have already pointed out, the only thing that would lead to Tigers doom is reducing payroll and giving up their perennial 50 million dollar advantage over the rest of the division. Dombrowski has not made good moves the last two years. In fact, they have been horrible moves. It is not a coincidence that these bad moves coincide with the Tigers being up against the luxury tax.

08/12/2015 - 12:09pm Moss doesn't have better

Moss doesn't have better sources than the local media he is constantly threatening with death, stalking, and harassing. The only thing that makes him different- as merely a lunatic with a blog-- is that he doesn't have to confirm rumors in a responsible way. People always have well sourced accurate information that one person has told them that they reliably know is true, but you can rarely print that kind of tip without more verification. Unless you're just a maniac on the internet who likes to play pretend.

He's also far from always right. He doesn't obsess about the times that he's wrong like he obsesses over everything else though.

08/12/2015 - 11:40am No, he's like 40. That's why

No, he's like 40. That's why all his cultural references are always at least 10 years old.

08/12/2015 - 10:43am Jeff Moss is a serial

Jeff Moss is a serial harasser and stalker. If Brian 'knows' him in any real way that doesn't just involve going along with Moss's delusions of being a local sports personality, it doesn't reflect well on him.

08/12/2015 - 1:29am Last time he was pimping a

Last time he was pimping a huge breaking story it ended up being him having someone prank call local writers. He's a disturbingly creepy guy.

08/12/2015 - 1:24am He was the first to post it

He was the first to post it to the internet because he's not a journalist. Many people had the same info.

08/04/2015 - 12:39pm Being in large markets will

Being in large markets will still be important if cable collapses, because you're going to want to subsidize the meager profits you're going to see in that marketplace with whatever you can get. In this case, the deals with OTA networks, which will become more important as everyone sees their choices limited as production funds dry up.

07/09/2015 - 4:25pm It doesn't sound like he's

It doesn't sound like he's missing the point. His pictures directly refute your repeated certainty that this is a new development.

07/09/2015 - 4:21pm I'm mostly just still

I'm mostly just still confused why anyone thinks that any brightening was an Adidas development. I'm currently looking at a late era Nike t-shirt that is basically the same color as a current Adidas one, and no it's not faded, I never wear it. People were already complaining about this 10 years ago.

05/31/2015 - 10:37am It's not really true that

It's not really true that there's never a good reason. If someone is being drastically underpaid compared to their results, an early extension can be a good idea. Like with Trout.

05/31/2015 - 10:31am I genuinely don't understand

I genuinely don't understand why people are still going with the slow decline thing when more than half the lineup is younger than 26. They might not be good, but turning into the Phillies didn't happen.

05/31/2015 - 10:19am Pretty much every national

Pretty much every national baseball-focused outlet has criticized the Cabrera deal. Not that they really ended up being correct given salary inflation and the fact that he's still performing. Maybe he would have been a tiny bit cheaper and gotten one less year if they waited, but that's about it.

05/31/2015 - 10:13am They did offer an 160 million

They did offer an 160 million extension to Scherzer, that doesn't really scream unable as much as they ultimately decided not to. In a world in which an unremarkable and average pitcher like Rick Porcello gets an 80 million dollar deal, the Tigers contract situation isn't that bad.

05/17/2015 - 12:14pm Wow, Deep take millennial Tom

Wow, Deep take millennial Tom Friedman, you're so wise. It's so amazing how nobody has ever noticed before that young people like buying prestige products and that they believe they can see through marketing. Nobody in the history of retail has ever taken advantage of that.

04/28/2015 - 2:08pm A total collapse of cable

A total collapse of cable just means that content producers that have ad friendly products like sports will hold out for more network money. They won't just keep doing what they're doing now and making the product available everywhere. Ultimately the only thing that will be hurt is consumer choice, which is hilarious.

03/28/2015 - 9:21pm You're right. they also do

You're right. they also do one of two clap cadence cheers.

03/28/2015 - 5:35pm Yes, shout "you suck" and

Yes, shout "you suck" and jiggle your keys like a true American.

03/28/2015 - 5:32pm I'd much rather people in the

I'd much rather people in the US adopt those things for other sports because they're good and fun.

03/15/2015 - 10:00pm Why do you even watch sports

Why do you even watch sports when you so clearly have no idea what you're even looking at?

02/27/2015 - 1:42pm The only reason anyone likes

The only reason anyone likes the 1989 uniforms is because they're the 1989 uniforms. Using a logo in the spelling of a name is amateurish and terrible to begin with, but also using different fonts and offset sizes looks especially sloppy. And white block M's, really? Nobody would call that 'uniformz' if a modern design did it so prominently?

02/11/2015 - 12:14pm This blog already has its

This blog already has its blow up where the proprietors banned anyone from making critical comments about them. Have we forgotten that already?

02/11/2015 - 12:10pm I don't understand why

I don't understand why everyone is taking one sentence from the daily comparing it to The Victors as gospel truth. It sounds more like something to play when the lights go down for basketball intros or pregame football while the band is walking back around the field. They use modern music in these spots anyway, what would be so terrible about having something unique?

Even if this way of going about it seems self serving.

02/11/2015 - 11:37am Yeah, just keep playing Seven

Yeah, just keep playing Seven Nation Army on repeat instead.

Seems like the daily missed the point of what this song would be for. I mean, I get the whole "no piped in music anywhere at all ever" thing, but if it's going to happen, having something that isn't jock jams and isn't In the Big House isn't the worst idea ever.

02/02/2015 - 1:50pm Except you're the only one

Except you're the only one engaging in class warfare by describing college students and the mostly young population downtown as 'rich.' The fact that there are actually people like you out there who think it's a mistake to invest in the only area of Detroit that's actually adding population in 40 years is such a huge problem.

Cities need tax revenue to be functional. For that they need taxpayers. I'm sorry that you hate that. There's absolutely an argument to be made that the suburbs should contribute more to regional transit, but that's not remotely what you're saying.

12/28/2014 - 12:36am Your furry avatar is stupid,

Your furry avatar is stupid, and "off sides" isn't a thing.

12/18/2014 - 2:54am They don't care, they sold

They don't care, they sold out their name and website for page-clicks and advertorials a while ago. Forbes "contributors" are little more than unpaid bloggers fishing for traffic.

12/11/2014 - 12:19pm The problem isn't trading

The problem isn't trading prospects, it's trading prospects for garbage. They just lost two of their only decent trading chips for a pitcher whose middling production they could get from basically anywhere else. 

12/10/2014 - 8:45am The idea that 'NFL Executive'

The idea that 'NFL Executive' is a position that requires moral respect is utterly hilarious.

10/08/2014 - 2:06pm I don't know why you're so

I don't know why you're so passive aggressive about this not being allowed. There's plenty of evidence that your attitude being totally insufferable isn't delete-worthy.

09/28/2014 - 4:11am Do you have any thoughts that

Do you have any thoughts that aren't milquetoast both-sides-do-it catchphrases? Just curious if there's ever a chance of you saying anything actually interesting.

09/28/2014 - 4:08am What are you rambling about.

What are you rambling about. It's only politics if some sort of conspiracy theory payoff is involved? They're kindered spirits. It's not that complicated.

07/13/2014 - 9:40am Actually, it's more like

Actually, it's more like people deploy 'zero' or 'nothing' depending on the situation. Which is frankly pretty stupid. Yes, we don't use it, but nil is objectively a better term.

07/13/2014 - 9:32am Way to lift your premise from

Way to lift your premise from an ignorant and moronic Keith Olbermann rant.

05/02/2014 - 2:51am Yes, because Ann Arbor

Yes, because Ann Arbor and the area of Michigan where a large percentage of the student body hails from is located nowhere near franchises for all the major professional sports.

03/17/2014 - 6:38pm Really? Especially ours?

Come off it man.
