    Those buffoons riding around parading the confederate flag all over the place in the name of "heritage" (lol) are the ones pushing the social divide. It's not the 1800's, come on into the year 2015 with the rest of the country, and the world for that matter.

    No disrespect meant here, but based on that information, literally referring to them as "my ancestors" based off it is kind of a stretch.
    Anyways I obviously agree that we should secure our borders. But just how do you go about doing that? Build a huge wall? Let's not be ridiculous.
    As for your solution for dealing with the current illegal immigrants in the country, "may seem a bit extreme"? Eh, it's not even realistic whatsoever man. Deporting all illegal immigrants alone would cost upwards of half a trillion dollars. Then if you add in that idea of throwing kids into foster care, where is the money for all this going to come from exactly?
    In regards to Native Americans, and open borders, your comparison there is flawed to say the least, they were being slaughtered left and right by those "immigrants". The majority of immigrants from Mexico here are just living their lives, and not bothering anyone. The criminal element is being played up by Republican politicians to xenophobic buffoons who will believe it is some sort of an epidemic.
    Also, indentured servitude? Seriously? lol.
    I just don't much care for referring to someone entering the country simply wanting to improve their lives literally as criminals. I was lucky enough to have been born in this country, and I love this country. But putting myself in someone else's shoes who was not that lucky, and afforded that luxury is a pretty sobering thought. Americans at times take basic things here for granted. We're all guilty of it.

    Depends entirely on who we would be replacing Olsen with. Though he is a TE, he is arguably at times our #1 WR, and Newton's favorite target, not to mention a great locker room presence. Also, our #2 TE is currently Ed Dickson. Um yeah, that speaks for itself.
    I mean, I would consider it. But, Peters, and a 1st? That's a fantasy Madden trade.
    You can make the "well receivers can't catch passes without an OL" argument, and there is a flipside to that too, having a top OL doesn't mean much if you have pass catchers with stone hands out there. I'm obviously well aware of the Panthers OL struggles, but even with that in mind, I still wouldn't make the kind of terribly one sided trade the Saints made. You're either getting better, or you're getting worse. The Saints got worse.

    Well unfortunately we don't exist in a dream world where you can trade one player for an entire elite OL, so that option is out.
    I would not trade Olsen for one offensive lineman. I've already seen the Panthers neglect TE for years in the past.
    Graham got more up front guaranteed, but Gronkowski is on a contract worth $54 million.
    You're at least somewhat rational about the trade at least though. So I won't give you too hard of a time.

    Rob Gronkowski says hello. Also, the Patriots traded 6 time Pro Bowler Logan Mankins to Tampa Bay before the season even started. They still won the Super Bowl.
    Now I know the Patriots are a differently run organization, but a legitimate game changer at TE is pretty much always going to be more valuable than an offensive lineman. Can you even name one guy on the Patriots OL? I can't think of any off the top of my head, but I did see Gronkowski showing up big for his team when they needed it in the Super Bowl.
    So again, you can rationalize this if you want, but it's a huge downgrade.

    I still can't see how anyone could look at that Graham/Unger trade, and come out thinking the Saints have actually improved.
    They traded one of the best TE's in the NFL for an aging oft injured Center who is only under contract through 2016.
    I really just about can't stand Jimmy Graham, but the guy is really good, and he's going to light it up in Seattle.
    Oh, and before any Saints fans come in here talking about how Jimmy Graham is 28, and his best years might be behind him. Our own TE Greg Olsen is 30, and he just had a career year. Hell, Tony Gonzalez was still putting up big numbers in his mid thirties with Atlanta. The Saints got absolutely jobbed in that trade, and that's just all there is to it.

    You start this post off by talking about "feeding the perpetual cycle of hatred", but then condemn someone for looking at our past in this country to ensure that we do not make the same mistakes or carry those mistakes into the future? Your logic is inconsistent, and irresponsible here to say the least. If you completely ignore the past, and the mistakes made, how can you properly form your future? In actuality, you yourself are feeding the perpetual cycle of hatred by attempting to ignore it.

    Looks he hasn't logged in in over a month.
    I heard he left because this guy who goes by Sean Payton's Vicodin wouldn't stop flooding his inbox with sexually provocative private messages.

    It's that way with just about every sports network now.
    When any jackass with a twitter account can be considered a sports "journalist", this is what you get.

    I personally do not much like Obamacare.
    But there are far more pressing issues in this country, and your party of nitwits have wasted, and continue to waste resource after resource fighting this poo, and it's just never going to happen. You guys can ramble on about Obamacare, Benghazi, Socialism, or whatever, but it isn't going to get the Republicans back in the white house. Wake up.

    I can understand that, generally I do not watch ESPN at all personally. Unless it is unavoidable, like they are the only network airing a game I want to watch.

    Those personal stories you shared are just a joke, right?
    Good grief man, that sounds like a bad comedy sketch, and you're using stuff like that to shape your world views?
    Okay, let me just ask you straight up, since you keep repeatedly going out of your way to mention "both sides".
    If you feel it's a "both sides" issue, why are you watching videos by known racists who literally blame black people, and only black people, and also literally say that black victimization is a hoax? If you can admit your wrong doing in watching drivel like that, I will have a dialogue with you, but if you pull a cookinbrak, and just try to worm out of it, you'll instantly become as reputable a poster here as Dat Alice was. That's not a good thing at all btw.
