"Thom Tillis has a proven record fighting against Obamacare"

24 October 2014 - 09:12 AM

Up until right about now:

 

 

 

"We're trending in a direction where we should consider potential expansion. ...I would encourage the state legislature and the governor to consider it."

 

 

 

Under the ACA, the federal governemnt would have covered the cost of expanding (Medicaid) to 500,000 North Carolinians for three years and paid 90 percent after that. Now, hospitals are forced to treat many uninsured patients for free, which in turn raises prices for paying patients.

 

So next time you see a pro-Tillis ad blasting Hagan for voting for Obamacare, you should get a good chuckle.

Ron Rivera is still terrible at clock management

20 October 2014 - 08:31 PM

Terrible clock management is a recurring theme in Rivera's tenure.

Right before halftime the Panthers are down 21-0 with three timeouts. They started the drive with about two minutes left at about their own 20. Shula calls two early running plays and the Panthers burn through two timeouts.

Eventually Kelvin Benjamin makes a great catch in the redzone with :38 seconds left. The Panthers had one timeout remaining. Rivera choses to not call the timeout, and by the time the next play is run the clock is all the way down to :12, which greatly limits your chances to score a TD.

Rivera HAD to call the timeout after KB's catch. No excuse not to. This is fugging basic football 101 knowledge you get from playing a freaking video game. Call the timeout and you have :38 seconds from the redzone. Plenty of plays you can run there.

It's incomprehensible to me how Rivera doesn't understand basic clock management and probably never will.

Seattle SeaBags

The 12th Bag nation and even Seattle players seem to be more unbearable than usual.

 

You can almost taste the tears:

 

 

 

"Yeah, at least give us a shot," Earl Thomas said. "But you know what? I'm not surprised with the refereeing this season. If you really look at some plays, we're playing more than our opponents. We're playing the referees, too. I don't care what anyone is saying. Something is wrong. It needs to be brought up."

"It's kind of crazy how football is turning out now," Thomas said. "You give a guy, just because he wears a white and black shirt, he has authority of the game, and they need to stay out of it. That's my key. And let us dominate."

And from a genuine real person on seahawks.net

 

 

 

The NFL dictates games as much as they can, the team has to be head and shoulders above the other team to overcome the BS calls. Hard to do when you have several starters out with injury's. The NFL is about drama, and they do everything they can to create it. This isn't a sport, it's entertainment. At least that's how it's portrayed to congress, hence the antitrust laws protecting the NFL. Nothing new here except the noobies that haven't seen it in action. The local niners fans have seen it for the last couple of years. The NFL has a huge influence on who wins and loses. Cant wait for that guy to come out and pop the bubble.

The Seabag's trail of tears will bring them to Charlotte this Sunday.


Is winning the NFCS a good thing?

19 October 2014 - 08:57 PM

Do we really want to make the playoffs only to get blown out 45-3 by a real team?

Serious question is serious guys.
