Well so far in the books and the show, Randyll Tarly certainly wouldn't be considered "central" to the plot. But that may change, who knows? At this point there are various plot lines so who knows which plot they are talking about. Maybe he could be Euron Greyjoy but from the descriptions given of the character so far it doesn't seem likely. I'm still going with Randyll Tarly.
People will say it's a gateway drug. Still no reason for it to be illegal imo. I wouldn't be down with legalizing heroic, cocaine, LSD, or any of the "hard" drugs, but pot seems pretty harmless to me...well as harmless as a drug can be anyway. I don't smoke weed now, I did it sparingly when I was younger, just wasn't my thing. I did drink though, and I think alcohol is way more destructive in terms of health and the effects on family.
Were you working? Was Thomas working? Banks don't just hand out 70,000 with no collateral or means to pay back. In any case, the point was that what he did was wrong, according to the NCAA rules on this...other athletes and the schools they played for got penalized, but Thomas didn't. No I didn't harp on this when it was an issue and I really don't want to harp on it now, but my point is that if you really care that much about athletes and the school being held responsible for breaking rules then you should be up in arms about this. But you're not, and we both know why. Spin it all you want but you're disingenuous.
And tell me how a college player can get a loan for almost $70,000? Could it have been money fronted to him in anticipation of being an NBA player? No, of course not, because then that would clearly be a violation of NCAA rules. Take your dark blue glasses off. See what I did there? And also do you deny that Maggette broke NCAA rules by accepting the money from the AAU coach? And it matters to Duke because he would have been considered ineligible to compete.
