  1. It wasn't a big deal on the surface. It's a big deal because of what it says about the guy's ego, his maturity, his judgement, etc. etc. etc. All of those character concerns he brought with him to the draft, he validated within minutes of being chosen. The only people who took offense were the people who were worked up about this minor mishap to begin with... wonder why? Because they're tightasses. Theft is a "minor mishap"?
  2. I wish Chip had a few extra high picks this year just to mix things up more, yesterday.
  3. The Bucs can coach the face of their franchise on the field to win games, and off the field to stay out of trouble. But PLEASE don't mess with his post game interviews.
  4. There is a pattern of bad decisions being made. I'm not so sure that they don't expect him to make another stupid error in judgement so much as it's a calculated risk they're willing to take. Sexual assault and theft are immature mistakes? I guess I agree on the latter. My mom whooped me good and I had to apologize to the store clerk when I was caught stealing tic-tacs. I was 5. I understood it was wrong, not to mention criminal, and haven't done it since. So, you're also right that people can learn.
  5. So many unknowns with MM. So much we just haven't seen him do. The under center stuff is completely new to him. Calling plays is completely new to him.Because a guy can do three or four quarterback things really well, do we assume that he'll be able to do all the other quarterback things at an exceptional level? And, can it work if a guy's really good at a few things, and just adequate at others? Because you know the good coaches are going to take away what you "want" to do. That can ruin you. Look at Kaepernick. It's all fascinating. Chances are this could be like the 2006 draft for RBs where Brown, Benson, and Williams all went early and none were worth it. But for QBs, of course. And not jusy because MM played in a gimmick O, or because Winston is a fat thief, but just because a good # of 1st round Qbs don't meet expectations. And there is no Luck in this class to bump these guys down to where they probably should be.

  7. Has Iglesias ever been considered a hitting prospect or just a glove guy? I'd go Russell but I might be biased. Never considered anything but a pretty terrible hitter. 267/314/324 career line in the minors over 6 seasons.Thanks. I don't know much outside of the tigers and I'm just trying to survive in fantasy baseball. I figure if Jose is hitting second for awhile (only one game so far so I may be reaching) that could be a lot of runs and seeing decent pitches. Plus the league I'm in weighs stolen bases a bit more heavily. That and I don't know anything about Russell other than he's a hot prospect.
  8. Too much truth for this thread. Way too much. Great takes. Spot on. I double dare anyone comparing Jameis and Jamarcus to give it a listen. So good. Hopefully lod cuts out eye holes large enough to watch that.Racial slur? Seems a bit much. Hasn't Jamarcus suffered enough? And the white comparison for a fatso would be Janikowski. Judging by that combine pick, Winston does seem to be heading in the wrong direction weight-wise. Looks like he did the freshman 15, sophomore 15, summer break 15,... good thing he's leaving undergrad. I'm sure it will stop now. Still targeting NFC South defenses.
  9. That's why they are taking their time - milking the OT.
  10. actually it is a ford explorer and they just do that naturally it is not a riot thing take that to the buy mopar bank bromigos You're thinking of the Pinto. Or maybe a Toyota with a stuck accelerator pedal.
  11. The people protesting are peaceful. Until they are not.
  12. I like when the talking heads on CNN & the like preface their statements with "there is no excuse for violence", then proceed to make excuses for the rioters.
  13. There seems to be a lot of violence at these peaceful protests.
  14. There was never any non-Winston DNA on her body. The non-Winston DNA that was found was on the shorts she was wearing and was from her boyfriend from weeks before. I see. Thanks. Still targeting NFC South defenses.
  15. "... the suspect did kiss or lick XX on her face." Was this the same incident they found the non-Winston DNA on her face? If it truly wasn't a rape, this guy is into some kinky stuff.
  16. Same Malik Shabazz who would rather "burn this city to the ground" (Detroit) rather than let white supremacists take over - really an emergency financial manager to get Detroit out of bankruptcy. Potayto/potaato.
  17. Should be interesting.. i imagine they will have to deviate heavily from the comics both to make it tv friendly and because i can't envision some of the content even making good tv. Should be one bloody, graphic story regardless of how much they alter it. I'm guessing this is going to have to be on HBO/Showtime. Even then, I don't see a lot of things getting into the show. They'll probably have to tame down the holy bloodline thing a bit (a lot). And that's going to be a lot of time in the makeup chair for arseface!
  18. Someone was telling me that VMart's injury bothers him a lot less vs lefties. Wish it was the other way aroundN.C. is 1 for 10 vs. Sale with 7 k's.
  19. Crap. I thought I maxed out the example. Not even close.
  20. The child support thing is relevant in that it informs us as to why he may have ran. That's it. And that has nothing to do with the culpability of the police officer for murdering him. I've never understood the running thing. Do they somehow think this is going to make their situation better? Even if he didn't get shot. Did he think he was going to get away. He was 50 years old and slow as hell.Agreed. In no way was this shooting justified, but the running part gets me. Sure, you don't think you're going to get shot in the back, but don't run.I think his family would much rather be bailing him out of jail. The common theme in all these incidents is that the perpetrator has committed a crime and has resisted arrest. Rodney King, Mike Brown, Eric Garner, Walter Scott, the kids in that video today that sparked so much debate... Law abiding people have no reason to fear the police. The cops need to do a better job, but the fact is all these tragedies could have been avoided if the people didn't resist.LMAO ya the general is .....nuts Resisting arrest is different, but speaking to the running part, what should an officer do (and what are they exactly trained to do?... I don't know) when a suspect runs? Much of the sentiment seems to be to not shoot the suspect. And I'd probably agree in the vast majority of cases as there's a chance for back-up assistance, or, like in this case, no reason for a non-violent warrant to be met with shots fired. But then, does that mean any criminal can avoid arrest as long as they are faster than the cop? What if it's a 1on1 situation with a known mass-murderer, who's escaped from prison? The murderer is unarmed, and not an immediate threat to the officer, but it running away from the slower officer? What if the officer has full knowledge of this guy's past and takes him out? Justified to prevent more deaths? What if he doesn't shoot and this guy takes out 10 more people prior to being captured the next time? I know it's an extreme example and polar opposite of someone with a warrant for child-support issues. Point being, when can/should officers be able to shoot fleeing suspects? It's somewhere between those two examples, but where?
