  1. What about this idea to combat tanking in the NBA. I drew inspiration from soccer and relegation. Obviously you cant send the Kings to NCAA but what if you punished teams for finishing in the bottom 4? If you finish in the bottom 4 the following year you are not eligible for playoffs. It could be cumulative up to 3 year ban to stop the any future "process" attempts. You would still have draft lottery and maybe put less weight in draft position making it even less of an incentive to finish with worse record.
  2. You make it sound like Ramsey was a polished CB without question marks. His ability to catch/ballhawk needs significant improvement. Rather have a plug and play potential pro bowler this year vs project player at #4 slot.
  3. Scott Tadych has just as bad if not worse criminal record in regards to violence against women. Its a slippery slope when you start condemning people without due process.
  4. Thanks for your thoughtful contributions. Apparently you don't get out much. You should try venturing out from the FBG forums sometime. Not only are there some posters in this thread that don't think Avery is guilty, but there are a lot of people out there on other sites that believe Steven Avery is not guilty, based solely on the evidence presented on the show. They have no doubt he is innocent. You don't even have to go very far on the internet to find it. Just read the comments to some of the articles cited. Maybe you can start with reading the articles themselves. But then again, that would require you taking the time to educate yourself and take away from the time you have to make snarky contributions. I think most reasonable people would say there is a probability that Avery is guilty. The question is to what level that doubt rises to. Is there reasonable doubt? Based solely on the series itself, there is beyond reasonable doubt. But if you take the time to explore it and as to what the series covers or does not cover, IMO there is very little doubt that Avery is guilty of murder. Steven Avery could very well be guilty but I dont see how you can argue against him getting a new trial or having his guilty verdict vacated.
  5. I agree they are the only other realistic possibilities. Just doesnt make sense, Avery gets huge payday and everyone is on his side and he was starting new life. Anythings possible but only time he acted out in the past was when the deputys wife was talking about him jacking it in the yard and toward cars. I really think it was Bobby Dassey and his step dad. Would make sense why Brendan made confession to protect his brother. Also explains stepdads lying under oath to implicate Steven and his huge smile after the guilty verdict. With this theory, is it premeditated, or did they just do it on the fly? Or did one of them do it and the other help cover for him? Steven called her out there and presumably was the only one who knew she was coming. Also, as far as making sense, why frame Steven for murder at this point? Couldn't his windfall have meant some trickle-down for the whole family? Other than Steven it would seem outlandish for anyone involved including the police to premeditate the murder.
  6. I don't really get the "too much on the line" argument. I get that he was in line for a large amount of money, but anyone who commits a crime like this has "too much on the line" specifically the prospect of life in prison or even death in some cases, yet it happens fairly regularly. Negative consequences often don't carry that much weight with people with poor impulse control. Also, I'd say the flip side of this is that Avery may have felt somewhat bullet-proof with his case against the county. Maybe he felt that he could coerce, or even force Halbach into things and the county would be scared to come after him lest it look like a witch-hunt. But then it got out of hand and he killed her. If you think Avery is innocent; what are your thoughts on the evidence; the car and body mostly? Was the car planted there, or did someone else on the Avery compound kill her and hide the car? And was the body burned behind Avery's trailer, or moved there? Was it just dumb luck Avery had a bonfire that night? The impluse control may be a huge factor. That is one aspect that I'll never personally be able to wrap my head around, but do agree that it happens far too often. SA may have shown signs of poor impulse control in the past as well. Maybe he did just snap in the heat of the moment. But to be fair, I think that can also be said for other potential suspects that the police failed to follow through with. So the evidence itself does not make any sense. Crime scenes are either the garage or SA's bedroom according to the State's case. I'm almost 100% positive it happened somewhere else. By who or when.... no idea. The blood smear in the back of the RAV 4 indicated that Teresa was bleeding from the head and transported in the vehicle. This alone doesn't support the killing in the garage or bedroom and then moved to the burn pit initially. The burn pit was right off of Avery's garage and house IIRC. As far as the two locations in which bones were found, I can't see a reason why SA would kill her on his property. Drive her out to the gravel pit. Try to burn the body there, just to bring pieces back to his own property. If SA killed her, he would have tried to burn her in his own pit first and move the remains off site. But that goes back to my last part. Why use a car to move a dead body 20 feet? Back to the RAV 4, someone noted that the tires had dried sand between the wheel tread. I'm personally curious to see if there are forensics that can confirm the RAV 4 was actually being driven within the gravel pit area. When in past did Steven act out? Only time I can recall when drunk he threw cat in fire with another friend and then running the deputys wife off the road when she was talking about him. Both occured in his early 20s.

  8. It seems pretty clear to me that Bobby Dasset committed the murder. He was the last one to see Teresa alive and had murder weapon readily available.
  9. Thanks man just sent request to join. Username spookygunz
  10. Figured it out had filter set to show clans I can join. Any chance someone can lower the trophy requirement to 2200?
  11. FBG4: Quattro. Think they still war once a week but you can opt out. Thanks for the info. For some reason not able to find on clan search. Any tips?
  12. Is there a clan just for farming that doesnt war?
  13. If you can start 2-0, you might go undefeated. Probably not, but you'll have the top tandem in PPR. Oh and I left out that I have AP as well, Bell was my keeper. Frankly if I can go 1-1 I'll be thrilled. Whoa. Dude, who are your Quarterbacks and Defenses? Brady and the Jets. Kicker? Here's my roster. Brady, Palmer, AP, L.Bell, Foster, J.Bell, McKinnon, Hopkins, Cooper, Smith Sr, K.Wright, Rudolph, Ertz, Jets, Hauschka PPR Post the roster of the next best team in your league. That should give better idea if undefeated season is possible
