#2860086 Clausen going camping

Posted by Mr. Scot on Yesterday, 03:57 PM

Clausen's skill set is way better suited to a WCO type attack like Trestman runs versus the Coryell type offense we run here.


He may or may not succeed there, but he'll have a lot better shot at success than he would have had in Carolina.

is he as bad as sal?


Gantt used to say Sunseri said things he had to look up to see if they were printable.


I got close enough to listen once.  "Colorful" would be one way of describing it :blink:


Forner DL Coach Brian Baker was very entertaining.  He wasn't so big on the four letter words, but listening to him made me feel like somehow I wasn't trying hard enough :lol:

#2859920 As you have grown up have you become more liberal or more conservative?

Posted by Mr. Scot on Yesterday, 12:56 PM

I don't think I've switched much one way or the other.


The two areas where I can say I've seen the most change as I've grown up are 1) my sense of what matters more and what matters less, and 2) my enthusiasm to argue about the issues of the day, which has significantly diminished.


In my younger days, I was up for a fight anytime, anywhere, with anyone.  Nowadays it's not that fun anymore.  Lately I'm only interested once in a while.  Most of the time Ive got better things to do than argue on the internet.

war zone was trash for sure but the first punisher wasnt bad.

They should have gone for an R rating.

A PG13 Punisher just didn't do the character justice, although I'll give them credit for a hellaciously violent ending.

I'd be stoked to get tackled by Luke.

I think there are some others on here who might echo that sentiment.

Tip: Spartanburg is frigging hot.

#2857222 So now Mike Mitchell is suddenly a top 10 safety

Posted by Mr. Scot on 18 July 2014 - 04:37 PM

Mitchell was legitimately good last year.  I'd have loved for us to be able to keep him, but not at the price the Steelers offered.

I don't suppose you guys could, you know, avoid getting into a pissing contest in a thread about someone losing their home?  Just maybe...


Terribly sorry to hear the news, man.  Prayers and well wishes from me.

#2855000 Saints TE Watson 'not worried' about the Panthers

Posted by Mr. Scot on 17 July 2014 - 03:46 AM

From PFT...

“I will say this about our division, one team I’m not worried about is the Carolina Panthers,” Watson said.

The biggest reason Watson isn’t concerned about the Panthers is the historical trend regarding defending NFC South division champions. Since the NFL’s realignment in 2002, defending NFC South champions are 0-for-11 in attempts to win the title in consecutive seasons.

“The numbers say they won’t win it. There’s never been a repeat champ in the NFC South.” Watson said. “So we’re not worried about the Carolina Panthers. So there’s only two teams with Atlanta and Tampa Bay.”

Benjamin Watson not worried about Panthers in NFC South

So, ummm...yeah :unsure:

#2853856 When a persona overtakes reality...a.k.a..the Kraken

Posted by Mr. Scot on 16 July 2014 - 10:32 AM

Lets all stop acting like we know these athletes off the field. He's not crazy. Stop perpetuating that.


General belief is that the 'crazy' thing is an act. 


Unfortunately, the immaturity, bad judgment and poor decision making are all very real :unsure:


Is Hardy really guilty of this?  Durned if I know.  He most definitely could be, but the general situation is an unholy mess.


But in the end, Hardy's the one who has to bear ultimate responsibility for getting himself into that mess.

#2852949 Hardy court thread : for all things that happen in court today

Posted by Mr. Scot on 15 July 2014 - 09:26 PM

You have valid points here. But why not answer the question, what do you think happened?


And since when is it unheard of for a wealthy young man to date an attractive young lady? Then, when he finds out she is complete bat crazy (and that's saying a lot coming from Greg Hardy), he decides to leave her? But, she won't let him go. So, he plays her along and has sex with her on occasion. Minus all the drugs involved, I don't see this as something far fetched at all, and possibly a situation I could have found myself at that age. 


So, the real question/concern is did he beat her up and threaten her on the night in question? I can not make myself believe he did based on what I've seen before the trial and during it.


I did answer the question.  The answer is I don't know.


What do I think?  I think Hardy's not exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer.  He's got some pretty dumb stunts on his record, for certain.  He's always come off as a tad crazy, though I put that under the category of 'on the field' crazy.  How does it translate off the field/  Who knows?


His accuser?  An admitted drug user whose own lawyer quit on her a while back if I recall correctly.  I don't buy the 'gold digger' argument, but she doesn't exactly come across as a paragon of virtue either.  Plenty of inconsistency in her account of things.  Could just be trauma, but might not be.


So yeah, in the end I think what I've thought from day one.  That this is an unholy mess that I wish was happening to some other team rather than us.

#2852750 Hardy court thread : for all things that happen in court today

Posted by Mr. Scot on 15 July 2014 - 08:39 PM

What evidence was presented that showed Hardy was guilty beyond a reasonable doubt? Was it Holder admitting she had taken coke earlier in the evening? Was it when she said Hardy was yelling something at her outside that no other witnesses within earshot heard?


Enough to convince a sitting judge.


I have no idea if Hardy's guilty, if the chick's crazy or what the real story is, but I'm not claiming to.  The only thing I feel totally comfortable saying is that Hardy needs to grow up and start using better judgment in what he does and whom he associates with.


That, and next year he plays somewhere else.

Stop being old and annoying


I'd love to stop being old (by some means other than dying).


But seriously, thinking you can get the full gist of a trial because you read tweets - from sports reporters, mind you - is about as credible as saying you understand all the nuances of War and Peace" because you read the Cliff Notes (or watched the miniseries).

#2852669 Hardy found guilty

Posted by Mr. Scot on 15 July 2014 - 08:17 PM

Way to go, Hardy.

Now to see what the suspension will be.

Probably not the best use of 10% of our cap space, but oh well.

And the guy is guilty. Stop making stupid excuses cause you like the jersey he wears.


I have no idea whether he's guilty or not, but I'd agree the reaction from many here is sheer stupidity.  Especially the automatic 'gold digger' theory.


You don't know somebody just because you're a fan of the team they play for.  Heck, Graham Gano could be a serial killer for all we know.


Whatever happened, truth is that Hardy's repeatedly demonstrated bad judgment.  This is just the worst, and saddest, example.
