I don't think this is racist. Calling this racist is what keeps racism alive. He likes to put in running QBs in his offense. I know some white QBs can run well, but let's be honest, black people tend to have more lower leg strength and tend to run better, generally. Just look at major sports. There will be a few exceptions, but it is not coincidence that most running backs are black and the best ones, usually are also black. Same with wide receivers and cornerbacks and other positions where running is huge. I'm a white guy and I'm not silly enough to not realize that black people are, on average, going to be better runners. There is also the theory that black people have higher twitch muscles leading to higher athleticism. On the flip side, I've heard a lot of times white people are (generally) more suited for straight up strength instead of speed, like lineman, etc. As always, there will be exceptions. But watch the olympics, aren't most runners black and most swimmers white? I only believe in coincidence to a point. This is just genetics. It's not racism, this is just who we are, and we should be proud that some of us are different, but in the end, we're all human. I'm not going to knock someone for pointing out what he thinks is a fact based on evidence he's seen over the years. If he was to come out and compare intelligence and personality traits, that would be racist though.
I don't understand what people expected out of him. When we drafted him, I don't remember anyone being excited for 15ppg+ or anyone that even had that notion. Now all of a sudden people expect that? He was NEVER drafted to be a scorer, the hope/ceiling was that he could get around 10ppg with putbacks and dunks. He's not going to do a 15 foot fadeaway jumper. He's not Chris Bosh. He's a in your face defender that doesn't back down and plays hard. He wouldn't even be out of normal college by now. I promise you there would be a ton of teams offering him a contract right now, and I'm talking about contenders. He's the type of guy you want on your team in the playoffs.
It'll be good, I've heard rumors that it is the darkest film yet they've done.
But if you didn't like Avengers, I'm not sure what to tell you lol. It set the standard for Superhero films (not counting Dark Knight triology). Iron Man 3 was a letdown till you think about it and Thor's sequel was just as good as the first. They always put out solid films, even the Edward Norton Hulk was pretty good.
I don't think many teams in the entire NFL want him. His day has passed.
If he gets cut, you'll see MANY teams trying to get him. John Abraham still had a great season in Arizona and I think he's older. Peppers still had 7.5 sacks last season on a team that was decimated by injuries and wasn't that great on D to begin with. I wouldn't break the bank on him obviously but if it's a reasonable contract and him wanting to just come home, I'd be cool with it. You can't have TOO many pass rushers. Especially when, if Hardy is still here, he can line up as DT on 3rd. We'd have CJ, Hardy, and Peppers out there on 3rd downs, sounds good. Price is a big point though, I think other teams will overpay though.
Tell that to guys like Dennis Rodman and Ben Wallace.
If you weren't going to give a guy, who you drafted knowing he needed to develop, more than one year to develop into and NBA player then it doesn't save face when you cut ties with him and admit you were wrong....it shows you're fugging incompetent
To be honest, those guys would never flourish in the league nowadays. Ben Wallace actually only had a couple good years and was in the league for a long time before doing anything for Larry Brown.
Rodman would be fouled out of an NBA game now in the 1st quarter.
The game has changed, for better or worse, and if you can't score, you are a liability. MKG and Biz, are both that. Just look at the "center" position now to know how much the game has changed. There are really only a handful of "true" centers now.
I'm pretty sure Gamble was just done playing. I don't think he cared anymore. He has a few really great years, but sometimes would just look like he was mailing it in. I think I read he said he saved enough money to where he didn't need to play anymore. That said, if he wanted to come back he would still probably be better than any CB we have on the roster but I think the ship has sailed..
Yes, the NFL is rigged. Without even watching the video, there is a few things people don't understand.
The NFL is an "entertainment" company, not a sport. They can legally rig games, just like the WWE predetermines wrestling matches.
Second, yes, ratings do matter, because at say the super bowl, if ratings dip to a point advertisers get some of their money back. It's not a coincidence there hasn't been a blow out in the Super Bowl since Tampa vs Raiders over 10 years ago. Statistics would prove at least a couple would happen. Last year it was about to happen but magically the lights went out, so who knows.
Third, because all the teams profit share, they all make out like bandits. The NFL has exploded over the last decade and that is when I believe they started planting certain refs or trying to give advantage to one side. It may not always work out like they like.
Because they can legally rig games, refs probably sign a nondisclosure or something about things that go on. Isn't it odd that refs are never fired because of terrible calls?
Look at the story lines. Last year, brother coaches and Ray Lewis retiring? This year, SF vs Seattle for the rivalry and then the Brady-Manning bowl in the AFC. Right after 9/11 the Patriots win, then the Saints win after Katrina stuff (and that was the highest rated super bowl I believe, almost the highest rated event EVER on tv). Even in the MLB the Red Sox go from worst team in the league almost to the Series winners after the Boston bombings. Then the correlation with teams that need a new stadium going to the super bowl.
I think the 49ers game was clear evidence, they did TOO much to help the 49ers in the first half. Then the second half, they let two offsides go uncalled, I've never seen that before. There is ALWAYS storylines and there is TOO much money going around.
But most will dismiss this because it would crush their view of the sport and they just can't accept something like that, no way it can be true, no way. Refuse to look at the many, many coincidences over the years.
The largest issue with losing weight once someone becomes an adult is the mental aspect of it. I would wager that most obese and morbid-obese were well on their way to their lifestyle at 10 years old or earlier. It's really cool to post pictures and make fat jokes, because we all know it's the last OK form of discrimination, but no, it's not as easy as some of you have said. It's simple, a child cannot dictate what he/she eats, obviously. They eat what the parent(s) provide and before you know it that child is an adult and now yes, they can earn their own money, but they are way down the line. Not to mention it impedes them from getting some jobs, therefore they may have to take a lower paying job that doesn't entitle them to organic foods and gym memberships. They are pretty much just long gone at this point and all they see is Mr. Everest in front of them waiting to be climbed. Combined with the fact that some people began over-eating as a child as a coping device for problems in the home or elsewhere. This is a terrible bad habit and one that is hard to kick.
All those things are psychological issues but yet no one really sees them as that, therefore no sympathy is given. Everyone hates the fat people, but usually no positive encouragement is ever given. I don't know why they get so much hate, if it wasn't for them then the beautiful people wouldn't realize they are such. And lets be honest, a good chunk of the people that constantly hate on fat people were just blessed with good genes and/or a fast metabolism.
