Say it with me: Schadenfreude.

#975422 Muslims Being Muslims Again in Egypt

Posted by Delhommey on 08 January 2011 - 10:07 AM

Egypt’s majority Muslim population stuck to its word Thursday night. What had been a promise of solidarity to the weary Coptic community, was honoured, when thousands of Muslims showed up at Coptic Christmas eve mass services in churches around the country and at candle light vigils held outside.

From the well-known to the unknown, Muslims had offered their bodies as “human shields” for last night’s mass, making a pledge to collectively fight the threat of Islamic militants and towards an Egypt free from sectarian strife.

“We either live together, or we die together,” was the sloganeering genius of Mohamed El-Sawy, a Muslim arts tycoon whose cultural centre distributed flyers at churches in Cairo Thursday night, and who has been credited with first floating the “human shield” idea.

Among those shields were movie stars Adel Imam and Yousra, popular preacher Amr Khaled, the two sons of President Hosni Mubarak, and thousands of citizens who have said they consider the attack one on Egypt as a whole.

“This is not about us and them,” said Dalia Mustafa, a student who attended mass at Virgin Mary Church on Maraashly. “We are one. This was an attack on Egypt as a whole, and I am standing with the Copts because the only way things will change in this country is if we come together.”

In the days following the brutal attack on Saints Church in Alexandria, which left 21 dead on New Year’ eve, solidarity between Muslims and Copts has seen an unprecedented peak. Millions of Egyptians changed their Facebook profile pictures to the image of a cross within a crescent – the symbol of an “Egypt for All”. Around the city, banners went up calling for unity, and depicting mosques and churches, crosses and crescents, together as one.


Obviously this won't make the news over here. Well, the original attack might.

#968469 Everette Brown (and Mike Goodson) - Worth the first?

Posted by Delhommey on 06 January 2011 - 07:56 AM

Here is a quick chart (sorted by sacks obviously) comparing Everette Brown's stats vs every DE drafted in the 1st round in the past three years:

Keep in mind the only two DE's on the list we could have drafted even if we would have kept our original picks would be Lawrence Jackson and Jerry Hughes. Getting Jackson would mean either no Stewart or no Otah of course. Note Jackson recorded 6 sacks for the Lions. He was originally drafted by the Seahawks.

Another often forgotten point is none of these first round DE's came as a packaged deal with a RB that amassed 762 total yards from scrimmage and 3 TD's.

And to save you the time of looking it up before you post who you were screaming for Hurney to draft, rookie Carlos Dunlap was the best young DE (regardless of round) drafted in the last 3 years sacks wise with 9.5.

So, in short, we'd all like to see Brown produce a bit more (and stay healthy), but he's certainly doing better than average for a 1st rounder.

PS: Orakpo is basically a OLB now, thus the inflated tackle #'s.

#964931 Country dumb....

No one here is doubting he's a great guy to know.

He still had a horrid press conference that made him come off to the public as an old, grumpy guy more interested in fighting with the NFLPA and flirting with blondes than addressing his audience. Seeing as how well he's carried himself in public before, that's worrying.

#964750 Country dumb....

Posted by Delhommey on 05 January 2011 - 08:07 AM

I still think he is a class act. I had no problem at all with the presser because i have seen that side of him for years. It was a business meeting with the CEO. I was pretty mild as far as i am concerned.

Talk to JR on a personal level and he is a great guy that is very likable. Get him in the board room and you better bring your A game.

That's great and all, but he was in a press conference. It's a public forum. You (and Jerry historically has) carry yourself in a different manner.

If you find yourself defending any public act of communication as "you just have to know him" it is usually a failure, as the majority of the audience doesn't.

Still, that's all I keep seeing:

Jerry rambles on endlessly and somewhat embarassingly?
Oh, that's just how he is. He's just being country.

Jerry treats the body of reporters with seeming disdain (Didn't know their names. Didn't always answer their questions. Sometimes forgot their names.)
Oh, that Jerry! Better bring your A game!

Jerry treats a female reporter in a patronizing, "what do you want to do when you grow up, little girl?" way.
Oh Jerry and her go waaaaay back. All the way to November 2010.

There's a difference between talking with friends, talking in a room full of trusted people who work with you and know your habits, and talking to a wide group of strangers who you'd like to continue to spend 1000's of dollars with you that know little more than your name. Richardson forgot that yesterday.

Competition: not only is the NFL a higher level of competition, the NFC South already has 3 good to great QB's. If he likes competition, that's a positive.

Falling houses generally mean a falling (local) economy, so be careful what you wish for.

Hard to pay for a house without a job.

Pretty good company in one of the best statistics a pass rusher can have.

#942849 Andrew Luck staying in school? (Peter King Rumor)

Posted by Delhommey on 26 December 2010 - 07:39 PM

Typical Peter King: I think after talking to Harbaugh, Luck maybe stays in school, but he will not decide until after the bowl game so no one knows at this time.

Seeing as you'll probably need pictures.

Of course these are all plants and all the rescue workers quoted are simply doing so for fear of their lives.
