  1. I believe they do because drafts still happen 2 days after the season starts. So those teams and leagues can retroactively start players that play on Thursday. So they let everyone.
  2. It is what he does. This is rhetorical, but look at his topics he has started in the PSF. Make a ludicrous claim, make some bad analogies, follow it up with another ludicrous claim, pretend your stance on the claim is softening, disappear from the thread permanently. Rinse and repeat in a few weeks.
  3. Love the humility angle. What about other presidents you voted for and the mistakes they made? Oh that was different.
  4. So by that logic Biden supporters are only responsible if they are part of the Taliban. I can agree with that.
  5. Well said. It is like the Chiefs losing the super bowl last year and saying after the fact that they should have started Chad Henne and punish Andy Reid for it.
  6. Nope, because it is subjective and as I stated before what politicians say before they are elected and what they do after they are elected can be very different.
  7. All politicians decision making ability is in question to me. What was your point of adding "and his supporters" into the question without adding a second answer in your poll?
  8. Biden, yes. His supporters? Absolutely not. Politicians lie and change agenda's all the time. It is absurd to put any responsibility on voters or supporters for the decisions a politician make after they are voted into office. What a horrible and divisive way to propose a question.
  9. You do lose your spot for one crazy year. Trump lost the the election because of Covid. It happens in all types of jobs all the time. I am also pretty confident when people move out of their current state that stats would show they are more likely to stay in the same region then move across the entire country.
  10. Not really. You are predicting this to be the start of a trend. I am more of a wait and see. This could be a random blip from a crazy year.
  11. Can we define droves? California had a decrease in population for the first time ever in 2020. They lost roughly 185,000 people out of 39.5 millon or just under a half of percent. That doesn't seem like a lot.
  12. This is at least the 2nd year it has been that way. So if you have a player on Dallas or Tampa you can bench them after they have a bad week or start them if they have a great week.
  13. So Rich Paul is making life difficult for the 76ers with his other clients, because they are making life difficult for one of his clients. I am shocked.
  14. Not as good as if took place at the Four Season.
  15. This 1000 percent. Ben played nice all off season and 76ers asking price was insane and showed they weren't seriously trying to trade him. Now the 76ers are going to get even less cause Morey messed this up big time. What is worse than trading Ben and only getting 75 cents on the dollar? Having Ben sit out and eat 35 million dollars in cap space.
  16. So I grew up with a verbally abusive father that was an alcoholic. My parents stayed together because he was raised Catholic and "for the kids" until 2007 when my mother couldn't take it anymore and left him while he was gone on a motorcycle trip. The divorce split my family in half. My father and middle brother stayed close, but never spoke to my mother and I. I also have a youngest brother that I would say my father disowned for lack of a better word. I got married in 2008. I invited my father to the wedding and still asked him to walk me down the aisle. Even though I had probably only spoken to him 5 times since I had moved out in 2004. I wish I still had the letter that he sent so I could accurately quote it and show you how disgusting it was, but he basically told me he didn't approve of my marriage, that I had been living in sin for the last 3 years and that he would pray for God to have mercy on my soul. He then sent another letter about a week later saying that he was a forgiving person and would grace me with his presence at my wedding and walk me down the aisle only if I met his conditions. Once again I don't have that letter so I am going off memory. First condition was we had to postpone the wedding for a minimum of 1 year, then I had to move back home with him and pay rent of 400 dollars a month. I was also to limit visits with my fiancé to 3 times a week with no sleep overs and go to a marriage counselor of my father's choice that we would pay for and he could sit in on. He also was nice enough to not count that as a weekly visit. Obviously none of that happened, however I continued to send him Christmas, birthday and father's day cards every year with no return contact. So 5ish years later my grandma (my dad's mom) passes away. My father did everything in power to prevent me from finding out. He didn't want me to show up for the funeral. I got notified by a cousin and then contacted my grandpa and asked if it was okay if I came to the funeral. Which he explained to me that he wanted me there and that my grandma would want me there too, but I was still crushed that a family member would go to those lengths to keep something like that from me. At the showing my grandfather pulled me aside and explained to me that he knew what my father did and how he also tries to forbid my grandparents from going to wedding 5 years earlier. He asked me to be the bigger person, go talk to him and introduce him to his granddaughter. So I went over and talked to him and introduced him to his 15 month old granddaughter. He asked to hold her and as soon as I handed her over to him she started crying. This made me feel a little better at the time. Now this might seem normal, except it isn't with my daughter. Ever since she could sit up on her own she has been very out going. She would let anyone hold her. She is 8 years old now and if you met her I am pretty sure you could find out enough about our family to open up several credit cards in our names in about a 30 minute conversation. Nothing came of this attempt though. The last time I seen my father was 2016 when my grandfather passed. This time there was no talking, I never had a chance. If I entered a room, then he left. When my family came to the funeral he stood outside in the middle of an Iowa winter and smoked his pipe. When we drove to the cemetery he sat in his car because I was outside to the burial site. It was then I realized that nothing I could do would change our relationship and I stopped sending cards. It hurt so much. I teared up just writing this all out and reliving it in my mind. All I can say is move on and surround yourself with good people because life is too short. I am lucky enough to have married a man that treats me great and his family treat me like I am one theirs. We have friends that are like brothers and sisters. Good luck.
