  1. Ben Baskin is on Quick Slants today. He did a pretty in depth piece on JG in SI.
  2. If you've got the whole world in front of you, and you keep throwing it away because of booze or pot or partying, I think that's a mental health thing. Like, you're effing up your life and you can't stop it.
  3. This makes me feel better about putting a run together. Can't have enough smart guys.
  4. Meh. You still work through it if you're not a thin skinned punk who inherited everything they own.
  5. Yeah but you can work through that. Plus, I hadn't heard that, but H could have meant it in the "The Men" sense. Like, "I'm going to go talk to the men."
  6. SF bonehead ownership fired a pretty dang good coach and replaced him with Tomsula and Kelly.
  7. Adam Schefter 5 mins · Facebook Mentions · Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, Patriots owner Robert Kraft and Texans owner Bob McNair, amongst others, will be deposed and asked to turn over all cell phone records and emails in relation to the Colin Kaepernick collusion case against the NFL, a league source confirmed. Others owners, teams and league officials also will be deposed, but those individuals have been confirmed for now.
  8. I only get the Pizza Hut meat lover's with olives and double/triple feta, so I can't speak for more than that, but that's my favorite pizza. edit: And, when I ordered that particular pizza from Pappa John's, it's maybe the only time I've had hot, fresh pizza and gone "meh".
  9. Gonna be funny if this gets Goodell fired. Adam Schefter‏Verified account @AdamSchefter 2h2 hours ago A group of owners, including Jerry Jones, is trying to hijack Roger Goodell’s proposed extension, per @mortreport and me. More today on ESPN http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/21206250/dallas-cowboys-jerry-jones-owners-trying-hijack-roger-goodell-proposed-contract-extension
  10. There's been a protest ongoing in Ferguson for weeks. No burning trash cans == ZERO media attention.
  11. I remember one of Burman's on going (and on and on) bits of schtick was "LOOK AT THAT LITTLE MEGGETT RUN!" Which was a play on one of Howard Cosell's darker moments.
  12. It's not about him thinking it's important. It's about him ####### with ppl who don't. Because you can't. do. that.
  13. We have tons and tons and tons of evidence that police routinely behave exactly as Bennett describes. To put the police in the best light, it was a tense, possibly lethal situation, and this behavior is how they subdue people. It's just how they do it. I have more sympathy for the cop in the moment than I do for the department trying to play their ham-fisted, cover your backside PR game.
  14. I believe officer attitudes can change when they realize they're not dealing with a nobody, yeah.
  15. Among the videos shown by Lombardo was Bennett being taken to a police car after he was handcuffed: The next video showed Bennett talking with officers saying he didn't do anything and asking for an explanation behind his detention: Another video showed an officer apologizing to Bennett: There was no video of Bennett's detention as Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Jay Rivera said the officer forgot to turn his body cam on prior to responding to what was falsely reported as a shooting, per Shoro.
  16. You haven't seen video of the actual arrest. It has not been shown. Plus it's great that LVPD tried to get Goodell to go after Bennett: https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/nfl-rejects-las-vegas-police-union-request-wont-investigate-michael-bennett/ (unrelated autoplaying video on that link, sorry)
  17. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2735952-lvmpd-body-cam-footage-in-michael-bennett-incident-released "There was no video of Bennett's detention as Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Jay Rivera said the officer forgot to turn his body cam on prior to responding to what was falsely reported as a shooting, per Shoro."
  18. Edited video. Cop involved didn't have his body cam on (as always). Same old same old.
