  2. What does a GM need to be?

    This guy scouted that Remmers should be the starting RT over Daryl Williams This guy scouted that Shepard should be starting over Byrd etc,etc This guy doesn’t really know what he is talking about majority of time but wants to feel like he has superior knowledge than your lowly average huddler. This guy is a average joe trying live off the fantasy of being a GM through the huddle. You would suck as a GM lol @panthers55
  3. What does a GM need to be?

    A coach is a scout and better scout than a scout a scout is someone who’s couldn’t make it as a coach
  4. What does a GM need to be?

    Nope the real method is giving your coach the GM power
  5. Stewart was the better player of the two, and I suspect he'll be the better former player as well.
  6. I'm not stalking you... ...as far as you know
  7. Dr. Lawrence Britt has examined the fascist regimes of Hitler (Germany), Mussolini (Italy), Franco (Spain), Suharto (Indonesia) and several Latin American regimes. Britt found 14 defining characteristics common to each: 1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism - Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public displays. 2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights - Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of "need." The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc. 3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause - The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial , ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc. 4. Supremacy of the Military - Even when there are widespread domestic problems, the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized. 5. Rampant Sexism - The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated. Under fascist regimes, traditional gender roles are made more rigid. Divorce, abortion and homosexuality are suppressed and the state is represented as the ultimate guardian of the family institution. 6. Controlled Mass Media - Sometimes to media is directly controlled by the government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly controlled by government regulation, or sympathetic media spokespeople and executives. Censorship, especially in war time, is very common. 7. Obsession with National Security - Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses. 8. Religion and Government are Intertwined - Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed to the government's policies or actions. 9. Corporate Power is Protected - The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite. 10. Labor Power is Suppressed - Because the organizing power of labor is the only real threat to a fascist government, labor unions are either eliminated entirely, or are severely suppressed. 11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts - Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to higher education, and academia. It is not uncommon for professors and other academics to be censored or even arrested. Free expression in the arts and letters is openly attacked. 12. Obsession with Crime and Punishment - Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to overlook police abuses and even forego civil liberties in the name of patriotism. There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations. 13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption - Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders. 14. Fraudulent Elections - Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or even assassination of opposition candidates, use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and manipulation of the media. Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections. http://www.rense.com/general37/fascism.htm
  8. Today
  9. If you think Matt Kalil’s level of play is worth 11M a year, we really have nothing to discuss. Just because he’s a “veteran LT”? So is Byron Bell. All for consistent, bottom of the league level play for 5 years running. And a 10M cap hit isn’t a big deal? As I asked before, what is?

  13. Lamar Jackson at #24: Is it possible?

  14. You call it a hobby while others call it a right. Sad to say you could have a whole school wiped out by a person with a gun and people still won't give up that right. I'm not arguing with people that already have their minds made up it is useless. Just stating a fact.
  15. Women's hockey

    GOLD, BABY!!!! Now I get to sleep for 3 and a half hours before work.

    Whelp Trump can only do so much, he's urged them to pass it ..not up to him now is it...so stop blaming him...like a 8th grade tattle tail..
  17. That was fast...

    that article confirms what i just said, using his direct quote. he asked the AG to propose banning them. he didn't ban poo.
  18. ABCB is the only rhyme scheme

    So do you think that football coach would have rather had a gun or just block the shots with his body...I'd love to hear your response...
  19. Josh Gordon will be...

    what really sucks about this is the browns basically have him for the next 2 seasons for free and it'll be his prime years. Browns also planned this which is why gordon was suspended for 1 game at the end of the 2014 or so season. Without that suspension he wouldn't be in this mess rn

  22. That was fast...

    14 Mass shootings under Obama, nothing done, first 2 years democratic controlled Congress not a peep about gun control...all of a sudden its an outrage!! Trump is now progressing forward, farther than Obama ever did about gun control...increasing the age limit to 21 to purchase a gun, getting rid of bump stocks, most strictest law regarding mentality ill patients trying to buy guns...must be tearing you libs apart...lol
  23. It's Official. Hurney is the GM

    I tend to feel like that. For the record, I wanted Hurney fired for years until finally it happened. Years. But under these circumstances, I think he is the right guy in the right place at the right time.
  24. That was fast...

    Why do you lie? "One day possibly banning bump stocks"...Even your own CNN contradicts you...lol... https://www.cnn.com/2018/02/20/politics/donald-trump-bump-stocks/index.html
  25. What does a GM need to be?

    Would you go to an accountant who had a degree in English? Would you take dance lessons from a musician? Scouting ability is a very big deal for somebody whose primary job is deciding who the most talented 53 players on a roster are. But no, it's not all there is to being a GM. Scouts by nature only have to present information. They don't necessarily have to make decisions. They can advise on decisions, but they don't have final say. For a GM, you have to have somebody who knows enough about talent evaluation to make the right choice, and has enough will and nerve to make it and accept the consequences. Basically, not every scout can become a GM, but every GM should know how to scout.
  26. Just saying "yawn" shows you have no answers..lol...thanks for playing snowflake, let's do it again sometime!!...lol
  27. not really. fascism and socialism are essentially the same, they don't believe in a free society or capitalism, it's basically two dictatorships, fascism of the rich or socialism of the poor, but in both cases, the poor are enslaved and the rich are expropriated in favor of a ruling class. so lets see ... man vs state or individual rights vs a totalitarian government, which brings us back to capitalism vs socialism. the most common misconception is that fascist ideologies are in line with the right, but that couldn't be further from the truth.
