#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.




#2852607 Hardy court thread : for all things that happen in court today

Posted by Mr. Scot on 15 July 2014 - 08:07 PM

She doesn't even realize how open this case has been. Everyone knows what was said
 

 

I'd say just the opposite, actually.

 

I doubt any one of us has a clue what really happened.  Only the people who were there really know, and they've got competing agendas.  Reality is Hardy could have done everything this girl said and more, or he could have done nothing at all.  We have no way of knowing.

 

Don't ever assume you 'know' an athlete just becaue you're a fan and you read about him or watch him on TV.  Nobody here had any clue Rae Carruth was gonna do what he did.

 

Reality is we have no idea what really happened, and I doubt we ever will.

That's not a harsh sentence at all.

This was always a very real possibility that no one wanted to admit.  People forget the legal system doesn't look through homer eyes.

 

Sad news for Hardy.  Gotta wonder what happens next.

Lord almighty those are horrible.

Vampirism is parasitic in nature.

 

And yeah, it's always nice to have ass kicking vampires that just wanna rip your head off and eat you for breakfast vampires rather than glittering emos who want to talk about their feelings.




#2851673 long term deal for hardy was never in the plans

Posted by Mr. Scot on 15 July 2014 - 01:50 PM

Might have been able to improve that secondary quite a bit with that $13M though.  Or how about the OL?  Or the WR corps?

 

I just don't see the end game of franchising Hardy if he's not in the long-term plans.

 

Gettleman follow the model that uses free agency for hole plugging, not long-term solutions.  And to be clear, that's a model followed by a lot of successful teams.

 

Before he went hogwild and started handing out money like a dying philanthropist, Marty Hurney tried to do that too.  But the model falls apart quickly if you don't draft well, and Hurney generally didn't past round one.  Gettleman's drafts will determine whether he can succeed where Hurney failed.

 

Honestly sometimes I'm not sure people really heard what Gettleman was saying when he mentioned "long term thinking" (despite the fact he's said so numerous times) but he's staying true to that idea.

That may be the only hee haw reference ever on the huddle

 

This amounts to a confession that you understood it.

I was expecting BR549.




#2848329 Alternate Choices for Best Comic Movie

Posted by Mr. Scot on 12 July 2014 - 08:33 PM

The one with Jack Nicholson as the Joker

 

Jack Nicholson didn't play The Joker.  He put on white makeup and played himself (like he does in every movie, minus the makeup).

 

Heath Ledger played the Joker.
 




#2847644 What do you consider essential comics?

Posted by Mr. Scot on 12 July 2014 - 11:49 AM

Probably should have asked me this question about 20 years ago :unsure:




#2847613 Banned for what?

Posted by Mr. Scot on 12 July 2014 - 11:26 AM

I ban a random person every day just for fun.

 

Me next.  I need to get some work done.

#2847592 Yet Another Mass Murdering SOB

Posted by Mr. Scot on 12 July 2014 - 11:03 AM

I will never, ever, understand opposition to:

 

  1. background checks for gun purchases
  2. withholding the rights to own guns from those with a violent background or warranted mental issues
  3. harsh penalties for convicted violent offenders who are found in possession of guns

 

Look, I'm not a "gun guy".  I own a rifle and a shotgun, grew up hunting and keep the shotgun around for home protection.  I understand the argument that the criminals will get guns one way or another (at least #2 and #3 can help put a dent in that group). #1 will also help hopefully weed out some of the "crime of passion" deals.

 

My personal feeling is that no one "needs" an assault type rifle, or a stockpile of guns and ammo, but that's a right that people who follow the law should have.  But I just have never understood opposition to those mentioned above.

 

I'm pretty conservative and I'd have no issue with any of that.

 

The only logic I can see behind some of the lobbying opposition is negotation tactics.  When you're negotiating something, you always shoot for higher than what you really want because it increases the likelihood that you'll get what you really want.

 

Truth be told, that probably applies to a lot of modern politics, except these days actual negotiation / debate / discussion is increasingly rare.

We can only wear plain, solid color scrubs. And just two boring colors. It sucks.

 

Wear something different, and if they say something about it just tell them you're color blind.
