    Tepper speaks at Carnegie Mellon

    Agreed. We love to speculate around here. It's just part of being an armchair QB/HC/GM. I'm keeping a cautiously optimistic point of view though. I'm not always a 'change for change's sake' kind of person, but this club needs a shakeup badly. And we're getting it.

    What Business Side Changes Would You Like to See?

    I get that maybe you don't care about diversity. And you're allowed not to care. But those who are perfectly qualified for jobs and are often times passed over (or consistently paid less) due to their ethnicity, gender or similar do care.

    Also, I wanted to let you know that when I talk about penalizing or otherwise discouraging non-use of tickets, I'm talking about those who would be habitual offenders. Those who keep the PSL, buy the tickets, but rarely use them in any capacity. So, if the tickets are used less than 50% (or, name your percentage here) over X amount of seasons, the rights are then revoked.

    The new "helmet" rule/penalty: Ho-Lee Carp

    I just wish they'd make two rules, which I think would cut down on the problems immensely. When a defensive player attempts to tackle an offensive player, the defensive player must make an effort wrap his arms around or otherwise grasp offensive player. Failure to do so results in a X-yard penalty. When an offensive player attempts an open field block against a defensive player, the offensive player must lead with his hands or forearms. Failure to do so results in an x-yard penalty. Those two rules would, in my view, stop almost all attempts to lead with the helmet and reinforce fundamental tackling technique. We shouldn't have to force grown professionals to tackle correctly, but it's pretty clear that we do.

    Fair enough. How about we get rid of the whole PSL system. I'd be a-okay with that.

    I've never understood why it's so important to so many either. It doesn't affect game play or the fan experience to me, so meh.

    Cam Jordan vs Matt Kalil

    Fixed it.
  8. Now that the sale is just a few rubber stamps from being complete... ...What non-football/business-side changes would you like to see? A few that come to mind for me are: Adjustments to the PSL program that would discourage/penalize non-use of tickets. I get damn tired of seeing empty seats on TV. I'd like to see the business side become a beacon of diversity, inclusiveness and forward thinking. Erase Richardson's tainted legacy through transparency, leadership, and actually doing the right thing. Clean house at the executive level - essentially anyone who enabled Richardson's behavior. This includes COO Tina Becker. Remove that damn statue of Richardson Following the example set in Atlanta for concessions. Stop the price gouging. Lead the way in actually treating cheerleaders like professionals instead of second class citizens. Those are just a few that come to mind. I'd love to hear your thoughts as well.

    It's from Downtown no Gaki no Tsukai ya Arahende!! (ダウンタウンのガキの使いやあらへんで!!) The basic premise of this segment is a trivia type game. Only problem is that when you get an answer incorrect, you dude's butt/junk gets closer and closer. Once you get like, four questions wrong, you lose and you get a face full of stuff. Here's one of my favourite subbed captions from one of their batsu (punishment) games.

    A Guide to Preseason Game Viewing

    I'd only like to add that sometimes, people's evaluations, particularly praise for 2nd and 3rd string potentials can go way, way overboard. They'll see a 3rd string player make a couple of really impressive plays against other guys lower down the depth chart and all of a sudden he's the saviour of the franchise. It's one thing to evaluate and say, "Hey, this guy could help us on game day when we need him." It's another to be all, "OMFG this guy should be starting! He's going the be the destroyer of worlds! Pro Bowl or GTFO!!!1"

    I see people do this poo all the time here. I'm amazed there aren't more cycling deaths on rainy days (which is like, all the time.)

    Actually, this kind of thing is pretty common in Europe. Usually it's made with something a *little* less sugary. I know in England, the beer/citrus soda mix is called Shandy and in France it's called panaché. It's usually drank on hot days when even beer can get too warm and start to taste like ass quickly.
