    TWD Season 9

    I thought Lydia talked about her dad abusing her mom.
  2. Pure conjecture here, but 1. $80 Mill is a LOT of dough. 2. Someone only pays out that kind of dough if a case has legs. I initially thought he started the kneeling thing to keep his job. I think he was on the verge of being cut. He stuck to it and even discussed what to do with a veteran. The protest only gained momentum when some assclown tells a rally that the league should fire the sons of bitches that kneel; even though there were only 8 or 9 guys doing it at the time (with Kaepernick NOT being one of them). In the time since then, my thoughts are that he is better than a number of other qb's who were signed or traded for. In a league that looks the other way on SOOOOO many issues with its players, and teams still taking chances on them, Kaep was a good enough player for SOMEONE to take a chance long before now. In the end, there is no doubt in my mind that the owners colluded to keep him out. I am also betting that the agreement officially ends his career with the NFL.

    TWD Season 9

    There was a question last night on TTD. The host asked one of guests why there seems to be so much more focus on relationships starting now than in previous years. I think you just provided the answer.
  4. That is a great story. Thank you for sharing. I hope you don’t mind, but I merged the two topics.

    The parallels between Carol and Alpha are crazy. To have two women go through basically the exact same things and turn out the way they did.

    Something tells me that Lydia told the truth with her second story. Alpha very well may be THE creepiest woman I have ever seen. The Talking Dead conversation discusses a Carol vs. Alpha showdown. I'm taking Carol if that happens.
  7. Excuse me....I ordered this WITHOUT anchovies.

    Carmel wins the MIC

    Congrats to the Greyhounds on the win. Still a great year for my alma mater, with just 2 losses. I was shocked to see Coach Beyers’ postgame comments about his team. There is a line you do not cross in coaching,; ripping your kids in public. And we are still talking about kids here, and again, kids with just two losses. It happens, kids have off nights. Rally your team for the next one and the road ahead. I am afraid these comments made publicly may have the opposite effect. I hope not. https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/high-school/2019/02/15/indiana-hs-basketball-carmel-tops-warren-central-mic-title/2857604002/ FTA: “There is no leadership on this team,” Beyers said. “There’s no one willing to take over and say, ‘This is what we need to do.’ There’s no leadership on the floor. We have eight seniors and they lead by example, but there is no vocal leadership on the team. Much different from last year. You don’t want to compare teams, but this team doesn’t have the fire.”
  9. Just one question...is this how capitalism is supposed to work? https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/2019/02/15/amazon-pays-no-2018-federal-income-tax-report-says/2886639002/
  10. I cannot get passed this. To me this is a HUGE issue in the wall talk.

    Purdue Basketball

    Their non con resume had just one win against a top 25, Marquette, when they entered conference play. Louisville and MSU are the only other ranked teams they have beaten this year. I don't think they have a chance of making the tournament; with a B1G tourney championship being the ONLY way they do. I see 3 more wins at most out of the remaining games. A 16 win team does not make the tourney.
  12. Again, not pertinent to the discussion. You made a simple claim; That the clock provided no competitive advantage. I countered it; nothing more. You did not define in any detail what competitive advantage was. So, even if it is miniscule, or even not necessary to some, the fact is there is an advantage to having one.
  13. I get it, but your original claim was there was no competitive edge. So, your reply does not address the fact that I had explained that there is an actual competitive edge to having one. Arguing about the necessity of it based on cost is a different point to the discussion.
  14. There is a competitive side. If a QB and/or coaches can see the play clock, they can better manage the pace of the game they want to play at; which could mean hurrying the pace, or slowing it down to protect a lead or keep the other team's offense off the field.
