I wonder if I can get them to make a DVD? They gave me a disc of my MRI, I don't know what I'm looking at, but it's cool looking!
I have a VHS tape of my first arthroscopic surgery (20 years ago). It is weird and fascinating. Getting ready for total knee replacement Monday ... after a second arthroscopic (unrelated to the first injury) last year. I'm a little stressed about this surgery.
Real fans know that our owner cares more about the league and the bottom dollar than the team, that is a fact. The love of our city/state/region and the game itself keeps us in, but it is an insanely bitter pill to swallow.
I honestly want MJ as owner. He would have absolutely nothing to do with the football operations, wouldn't give a sh*t about the league, and would just want his team to win and would make the correct decisions for that to happen by putting it in people's hands who have football knowledge. Plus he's a badass and would show some emotion.
Every NFL owner cares about the league ... every single one.
The second this team turns around ... this season, next season or whenever ... all you people wanting to "boycott" the Panthers will be BEGGING us PSL owners for our tickets ... "give us a deal," "we're really huge fans," "we've ALWAYS been here for the Panthers." Well ... to put it bluntly, that's B U L L S H I T.
Well that changes things a bit from the impression I got from the OP, however Ron needs to strike the word "IF" from his vocabulary when talking about Cam. IF is a lot more suitable talking about his own job.
Yes, he should have said: "He's our QB. He's got to work himself through these things." Period.
Everytime camera points at him, his eyes are closed and his head is down... Anyone else thinks he just don't give a rats ass anymore?
He was looking down at a monitor. Mrs. Richardson reacted to the camera being on them, and waved, after watching what I have to assume is a TV monitor in front of them. He wasn't asleep and his eyes weren't closed ... he was looking down.
I've never, ever, ever experienced the Panthers event staff "just looking to catch you doing something wrong." Ever. Until a year or so ago, I had never missed a home game. While others' experiences obviously are different, I think the notion that the Panthers are not "fan friendly" is largely a myth.
God this infuriates me and I hope it does the team also. How did this all happen? I mean, what made this so big? A video of RAY RICE hitting his fiancé came out and all the sudden domestic abuse is a bigger topic then a virus that has killed 2500 people, a terrorist group who has executed 2 Americans and a UK man, and a nuclear rich country with strong tensions against our country.
I swear people get dumber by the day, and I wish all the nosy people would let the family handle the situation in private. It's no one else's business but them, and the police if necessary.
Some retard on the ESPN comment page said "Hardy threatened to kill his girlfriend and would have had she testified". I swear people are so fuging stupid and self-righteous now it's insane and I can't help getting pissed off about it. I wish we could just watch and hear about football instead of Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson, and Greg Hardy's personal lives.
A few facts for you about this worthless topic of domestic abuse, a topic that just needs to be kept in the family, kept private:
In the United States, researchers estimate the 40 percent to 70 percent of female murder victims were killed by their husbands or boyfriends, frequently in the context of an ongoing abusive relationship.
According to the FBI, a woman is battered every 15 seconds.
2 million to 4 million American women are abused each year.
White, Black, Hispanic & Non-Hispanic women have equivalent rates of violence committed by intimate partners.
Nearly 1/2 of men who abuse their female partners, also abuse their children.
Up to 50% of homeless women and children in this country are fleeing domestic violence.
Studies show that women face the greatest risk of assault when they leave or threaten to leave their partners, or report the abuse to authorities.
see, that's just it. The testimony is not out there because transcripts are not Standard Operating Procedure in NC bench trials, that is proof positive of the significance of a "guilty" verdict in a bench trial. In this case there is reportedly a transcript only because Hardy's lawyers paid for one .... so that they could have "testimony" that would be admissible in either the jury trial or the expected civil suits later.
You (and perhaps Peter King, although I don't think he thought about it as much as you have) are confusing reporting with testimony, it is not the same thing. Bill Voth's interpretation of court comments is not "testimony".
Listen ... I was a reporter and editor for 20+ years. I am not confused. I've covered court, and I've quoted testimony. You are playing semantics. If someone testifies in a trial -- bench trial or not -- and I'm a news reporter covering that trial, I can write that the person "testified that ...." whatever. That's what news reporters do. I don't have to wait until I get a transcript to be able to report that.
If Hardy and the woman don't live together, have no child together and not married, it's not domestic violence. It's a criminal case. It doesn't go to family court. Living together means receiving her mail there or living in a family type setting(this part can be hesay shesay). Else she's just a visitor or friend. It's just considered a fight between two person. A men and a woman fighting doesn't automatically mean it's domestic. Somebody should contact Hardy's lawyer. Wait till the media wake up to that fact.
No one can prove a relationship other than the 3 facts I've listed. If Hardy's lawyer doesn't bring up that point he's in cahoot with the woman. Hardy should have been in criminal court getting probation and be free like a bird to roam the street and play football on Sundays. They tried him in the wrong court. What the hell is going on in the south!
NC law says "domestic violence" applies to, among other things (of course):
"... persons of the opposite sex who are in a dating relationship or have been in a dating relationship. For purposes of this subdivision, a dating relationship is one wherein the parties are romantically involved over time and on a continuous basis during the course of the relationship. A casual acquaintance or ordinary fraternization between persons in a business or social context is not a dating relationship."
I would say that the definition of "over time and on a continuous basis" need more definition.
