#3334150 Greg Hardy suspended 10 games

Posted by TN05 on 25 April 2015 - 04:19 PM

If you work in the legal field how come you think the judge found hardy guilty? Do you practice in NC because if you do you should know Trail De Novo and that the judges verdict no longer exists in the eyes of the law. You should also be aware that NC uses bench trails in these cases to test if it's worth going to a jury trial at all which causes the guilty verdict.


It's a glorified grand jury.

It's ironic, how many of the same Panther fans that were crying, shouting, and literally burning bridges advocating the Panthers bring Hardy back, are so silent/avoiding-why this is one of the reasons many of us didn't want him back in the first place!!

 

There was too much uncertainly regarding Hardy, and the Panthers already had their fill of it last year (along with literally tossing away $13 mil). So what if it eventually gets reduced to 2-6 games? Look at the distraction he would have caused, again? And if he was still with the Panthers, the NFL would have probably tried to suspend him for the entire season. :phew:

 

I read through the first 8 pages (albeit there's 24 and counting), and I haven't heard one Pro 'Bring Hardy Back' Advocate, and why it could have been a bad idea. Things like this are one of the reasons.

 

Too funny.

 

Just because I think it's wrong to punish him for a crime he probably didn't commit doesn't mean I want him back or am less of a fan. It's an issue that goes pretty far beyond one player or one team.

He didn't get suspended because he was accused. He got suspended because there were photos showing the evidence of how he beat her.

It's not an accusation, it's a fact.

Until the photos are public and timestamped to fit, it's impossible to say they are.

If just being accused of domestic violence is enough to warrant a 10-game suspension, how much is an actual conviction worth?




#3327035 A closer look at Todd Gurley

Posted by TN05 on 19 April 2015 - 07:56 PM

Rivera has said he wants Stewart to take around 15 carries per game (that would be 240 over a season). Given that, I would not be surprised if we draft Gurley.




#3326991 The chosen one is returning to the NFL

If he's truly improved his throwing motion, he could be a capable backup. I'm sure Kelly could also find ways to utilize him in wildcat.

 

Will anything happen? Probably not. But I'm not surprised a guy who had so many unbelievable comebacks is getting a chance.

And no, he's not targeted for his religion. Is he ridiculed for it? Sure. But the issue isn't he's religious, it is that the media makes it a distraction.

Lol, that's gotta be a troll vote or something. In fact, I can't believe the WNBA even still exists.

 

It was David Stern's pet project. I guess Adam Silver doesn't mind losing millions each year on a league nobody watches either.




#3324405 Civil lawsuit against J. Winston

The fact that you have to ask that says tons about you.

 

Go research rape a little......then come back to me and we can have a logical and informed discussion.

What does it say - that I don't blindly accept things I hear on the internet? I'm trying to understand what you mean by 'power', and what it's implications are Carolina Cajun gave an explanation. That's good. You, on the other hand, berate me for... something. I'm not sure. Thoughtcrimes?

 

I have researched rape. Outside of feminist circles, the 'rape is not about sex' thing isn't universally accepted. 'Power' (whatever that means) can be a motive, but sex is also a motive. Rape can absolutely be about power, or sex, or both. It's not black-and-white like you argue. 

 

Psychology Today has a good article on this. It says the 'rape is about power' idea came not from science, but from a book by a feminist who asserted rape was ""a conscious process of intimidation by which all men keep all women in a state of fear". The book 'The Evolution of Human Sexuality', a scholarly work considered one of the best in its field, refuted it, placing rapists as generally being primarily poor, lower-class men who aren't appealing to date, and rape victims as generally being attractive women. Recent developments have demonstrated rape can be about 'power', but is not always or only about it.

Jameis could rape a woman on video tape and there would still be dozens of "LOL SLUT WANTED IT HAHA STUPID BITCH IS A GOLD DIGGER" comments flooding the thread.

Asking for proof is not denying rape. Asking for proof should be standard operation procedure for reaction to any crime.

ITT: proof that the Huddle has Aspergers. Quit thinking about the significance and just retweet.

I have Aspergers and there is no reason not to retweet. Just a bunch of negative people who hate fun.

#3313140 Happy Easter/Passover!

i try to argue this point with my ignorant southern brethren all the time. they dont seem to get the concept that a Christian Arab or North African will still call God "Allah" because its just the word they use. the Islamic god doesnt have a name. just the title "Allah". linguistically, it comes from the same place the Hebrew title "Elohim" comes from...

 

The best way to demonstrate that is to use 'Elohim'. It's just a generic Hebrew word for 'God', and although it's associated with the God of the Bible, a hypothetical Hebrew-speaking Muslim would probably use that term to refer to God. In the same way 'Allah', while associated with the god of Islam, is just a generic Arab word for 'God'. Obviously there is an association with religion, but if you're speaking Arabic it's the word you'll use.

Praise Allah!

 

'Allah' is just the Arabic word for God, so...




#3309075 Hornets out of playoffs?

Posted by TN05 on 01 April 2015 - 05:09 PM

We can still get in. We're 11th at 31-42, Indiana is 10th at 32-42, Boston is 9th at 33-41, and Brooklyn is 8th at 33-40. So we are two games back from 8th place.
