Great post. When I, a humble football layperson, can be sitting in the upper deck, having drunk several beers, and watching through a steady mist can see a spot being off by a yard I have no frickin idea why the guy who is a few feet away and has nothing to do other than get the spot right can so decisively fug it up. Add in the other obviously BS calls and it almost make one suspicious that mere incompetence isn't completely to blame.
I think thats a key thing that hasn't been mentioned enough about this 3-0 start. We've done a great job protecting the ball, especially Cam. As long as that continues we can hang with just about anyone but the first 3-4 TO day we have we will almost certainly lose as we aren't good enough right now to overcome that kind of carelessness.
I'm all for athletes spending their money however they see fit but restaurants are historically terrible investments, period. Its his money, but just about anything this side of sending cash to Nigerian princes would have a better long term chance of him ever recouping what hes going to spend. Hope it works out for him though.
Its kind of like gun violence. Its actually been on a steady decline for over twenty years, but the media alwaysmakes it sound like we are experiencing an unprecedented wave of gun violence that is going to be the end of our great republic if something doesn't change. Apply that same phenomenon to pretty much everything else the 24/7 media is forced to fill its time with and the effect is that many things end up getting blown way out of proportion to reality.
Does that mean the OP should change the thread name to "now I understand why liberals hate this pope so much" since his views on homosexual marriage and abortion (and many other things) clearly don't align with their own?
