  1. LOL Replaced.

    RR, that is a sarcastic jab, I admit. But, I only make light of it because there are people here who legitimately feel that way. Revisit the Norman threads and read through it. I get painted as the problem because I'm countering posters that actually think that way, and no one sees anything wrong with that line of thinking... and in the process, I'm painted as anti-Gettleman, which I'm not.
  2. LOL Replaced.

    Not possible. Gettleman is no mere mortal such as ourselves. He is immune to emotions and human pettiness.
  3. Gettleman says BPA philosophy changed this year.

    Petty much? I haven't made any judgements on these picks. I wasn't a fan of taking ANOTHER DT in the first, but this thread isn't about him, and yet, I still weigh heavily enough on your mind that you have to tag me in it? Lol.
  4. Good thing receiver isn't a concern.
  5. Fear the Walking Dead, Season 2

    Yeah, they're still doing stupid stuff, but that was possibly the best episode yet, outside of the break into the military camp and the subsequent break out. A lot of inexplicable things, (travis reads a boat manual for 10 secs and is suddenly a mechanic, plane crash - "let's go ashore even though there's probably walkers everywhere"). But, it's picking up... Also, on TTD, Chris Jericho made an interesting point. I know some of us debated the stupidity of the characters last season and the argument hinged on "they don't know what zombies are in this world," which I thought was really unbelievable, because if that's the case, it would be an alternate universe, because everyone in our reality has heard of the concept. But, Jericho basically said, in their world, they're still operating off conventional social norms. They don't completely understand their actions and the consequences in this new social structure. His example was the mercy kill on the spine injury guy... in Chris' mind, he still doesn't know the consequences and what has this done to him. If you were him, you'd walk out of that wreckage thinking you've got to hide or a cop will show up and arrest you for murder. But, they're having to adjust to this new social order... and he said they still don't fully comprehend EVERYTHING has collapsed. That explanation did a lot for me in regards to the characters naivete and seemingly stupid actions at times. That being said, the daughter was an absolute idiot with the radio thing in the season premiere, and there's no caveat for that. One more point - I was telling my wife, the interesting thing about this show, and I havent figured out if it was good or bad yet, is that there soesn't appear to be one sole protagonist. Because of that, there is a lot of different things the writers can play with from character to character. Again, I don't know if that's a good or bad thing. Are they purposely drawing it out to have a main character step forward, or had they not fully fleshed that stuff out and now are trying to develop them all at once? It could make for an interesting dynamic going forward...
  6. Okay, Kuhn and Philly, how many times have you pushed a female down to the ground by the throat? So, we're accepting this as commonplace and acceptable now? I'm not saying people don't make mistakes, but this sliding scale of morality has become heavily greased tonight, lol.
  7. Game 6 vs. Heat

    INO, the refs made some bad calls on both ends. The most egregious ones that affected the outcome was that bullshit charge on Al, the 5 second call on the inbounds, and ignoring Wade's flying elbow to Kemba's head on that last driving layup by Kemba. Funny though, when Wade got blocked clean at the end of game 5 the fuging crybaby tan all the way back down the court absolutely destroying the refs. fuging idiot... But, this one didn't feel like officiating to me. We played like poo, save Kemba. The defense was absolutely atrocious. If anything, i think the refs were jusy trying to keep it close both ways and hope Miami pull it out, which they did. This was a loss mostly attributed to horrible defense and Wade hitting shots he had no business hitting. He hadn't hit a 3 since december and had missed 22 straight 3s before hitting both of those clutch 3s tonight. Just poorly played basketball. The crazy thing is, every game they've won hasn't been due to flawless execution, they just literally throw up shots out of their ass that have gone in. In our victories, they weren't falling, albeit the defense seemed a lot tighter. Oh well, the nba wanted 7 games, and that's where i think the whole fuging thing is a sham.
  8. Is putting one's hands, as a male, on a female, resulting in bodily injury not the behavior alleged in both cases?
  9. Believe me, I'm clear on him not ever coming back. Again, I'm pointing out that we seem to be making rules as we go.
  10. So, you're cool with Worley's past charges? Hardy was thrown under the bus because he didn't want to sit home and collect a check. He was convicted off of hearsay and questionable photos of injuries, and instead of TRULY demonstrating our belief in his innocence and allowing him to continue to play, we sat him, paid him for nothing, then let him walk. That's not heroic, it's lazy.
  11. Chuck, you've been working towards carolina-chuck3 for a good while now.
  12. None of that was proven with Hardy. And Hardy was at his own residence, of which he already tried to avoid having Holder come to. He called to have her removed and the tables were turned on him. Worley's situation took place at a nightclub, where nothing bad ever happens. You're telling me there was no way Worley could've handled this but to grab the woman by the neck and push her to the ground? The situations are a lot more similar than you're acknowledging. These once solid, concrete morals and values so many here were standing on suddenly have become a lot more fluid.
  13. And to be clear this wasn't about bringing Hardy back per se, it's illustrating the huddle groupthink at work. Hardy was written off as a woman beater (bka a career killer) and an idiot (which he may be). But, he was a damn good player. He went downhill in Dallas and many rejoiced because they saw it as vindication for letting him go. Now, we draft a guy under basically the same circumstances that Hardy went through, and those same people sticking up for poor Nicole Holder are now fine with the new addition and it's no big deal because he defended his girlfriend. Understood.
  14. And what's the difference between laying your hands on a woman to defend your girlfriend and laying your hands on a woman to defend/protect yourself? What makes one better than the other?
