#2696647 Nicks officially a Colt per Schefter

Posted by micnificent28 on 14 March 2014 - 09:58 PM

I don't see how there are so many people still believing in the gettleman plan. this is sickening. "Calm down everyone gettlew is doing whatever every other gm has been doing". I ve never seen a franchise cut it's number one wr without having a replacement or even a number 2 or 3 on the roster. This is dumb however you spin it.

I swear some of you could find a way to justify the holocaust. There is no excuse for this abomination that gettleman is producing. When had a franchise that went to the playoffs just blew up there offense to prove a point. There no money involovedw in this. Gettleman just had to prove apoint that hes the boss. fug gettleman and fug whoever defends this horsecrap.

#2680591 Capologists! Answer me! Is 7 mil all the money we have now?

The bottom line with Gettlemen is that he was put in a position to be a bad guy. These contracts are crazy. Godfrey? Stewart? DWill? I even question the Kalil and CJ money. He is having to guarantee money to get us under the cap.

Gettlemen's test is now, but he gets an A for what he did last year. What move has he made that you question? He is going to piss some folks off very soon, but that is because there are so many ways to look at the picture. He has to look at production, cap hit, and future impact on production and cap hit. Emotion and loyalty are for the fans.

Marty rewarded players for past performance. He spent Fort Knox to keep the core of a team that went 2-14. Regardless of how you feel about Gettlemen, if you like Hurney, you weren't paying attention. Some say, "but he drafted Cam and TD." Yes, he got parts of his job right on occasion.

I don't dislike him. I was just stating we only have limited info on him to go by. So i m not going to be like he will do the right thing and can't make mistakes. I agree hurney was bad.

He looks like a project to me, worthy of a high second round pick due to his size but I don't see much technique in his game.

Pretty much where were picking.

#2662336 NFL considering 15yd penalty for use of "N Word" in games

Posted by micnificent28 on 22 February 2014 - 09:22 PM

i'm torn on this. on the one hand it's a word rooted in hatred and oppression and our society would be better off without it, period. on the other hand, historic power imbalances are the catalyst for the word being so volatile, so the fact that it's been appropriated as a friendly, endearing term almost, like 'motherfuger' in some senses, between some african-americans, makes it seem like a culturally-specific, culturally-harmless word is being rooted out because white people aren't allowed to say it.


i see both sides of it and it's tough any way you go.

The power of the word lies in who's saying it. It's like one gay guy calling another gay guy gay. It's like dude your gay too. That said taking the word that you said is deep rooted in hatred and bigotry and using it as a means of love between brothers is a testament to strength and over coming the word and and it's meaning. But,the true meaning of the word is still there and If someone from outside of that barrier calls you that word it could easily still mean the same thing it use to mean during those times.

First question.  Is this a problem in the NFL?  Don't know that i have ever heard it on Sundays in any game.


I would assume that most of the flags would currently be against black players since white players using the word in anger in a game would have been exposed long ago?


Is this all because of the Martin/Incognito episode?  Most of that played out on Twitter and texts.


If it is truly not a problem with the players, and it does not offend the audience because they cannot hear it, then the point is........


Why lobby against something that neither black nor white players should be saying? If no one is saying it there won't be a penalty. This is really a harmless rule to pass and protects the integrity of the league. Pretty much saying we won't stand for this kind of crap to fly in our league. I like it and to fight against it sounds to me like your mad you won't be able to say the N word anymore.

Batman should be banned seriously. He's a goes unchecked saying racist things all the time and no one says a thing.

#2660558 Ray Rice Arrested for Knocking out Fiancee

Posted by micnificent28 on 21 February 2014 - 08:41 AM

I think Kuechly's athleticism really is underrated though....

Here's Vernon Davis's combine numbers (since he's roughly Kuechly's size):

6'3 254

40: 4.38
Vertical: 42 inches
Broad Jump: 10'8 inches
Three Cone: 7 seconds
20 yard shuttle: 4.17

Here's Kuechly

6'3 242

40: 4.58
Vertical: 38 inches (!!)
Broad Jump: 10'3 inches
Three Cone: 6.92
20 yard shuttle: 4.22

Really 40 is the only thing Keek gives up a lot of ground to Davis in. If you go back and look at yearly combine results for LBs, he'd be near the top of every class. 4.4 speed for a LB is about as rare 4.2 speed for a WR.

I think he's just never called athletic he really doesn't look that athletic when he plays: 1. because he honestly isn't great in coverage and 2. what he does best (run defense) doesn't require blinding speed or athleticism. Actually, now that I think about it, I've almost never heard any MLB called athletic.

tl;dr people not calling Keek athletic is a MLB thing, not a race thing.

Sorry for thread derail; Ray Rice sucks, as does anyone who would hit a woman, doesn't matter if she provoked you or hit you first. Funny story but actually I got punch/slapped (hard enough that my lip bled) by a psycho ex gf at a party because she saw me kissing another girl. Somehow hitting her back never crossed my mind for a second...that's not a normal reaction to have to a girl hitting you, much less spitting on you. Rice is seriously a scumbag.

I ve said keek is an above average athlete. But the fact that davis out does him by that much more in every category is the diffrence between the athletic perception and just good be nfl standards. And it might not seem like much to you but the diffrencr between 4.3 and 4.5 is huge. The nfl is a game of inches which that gap may be the deciding factor. I think everyone would call patrick willis athletic try comparing there numbers.

A pc code word? You sound like one of those crazy conspiracy theorists. Was it a code word when Tupac had it tattooed across his stomach? It's used to describe a certain way of behaving because that is it's definition, never mind that 'thug life' has been glorified for decades by rappers and now you wanna get all offended by it's use? Is this another word that only black people and honorary black people can say? Lol, just ridiculous. Also, class act is used a lot to describe people of all races. Oh, but I must not be a minority because only white people ca`n't see the encrypted media racism. Disgusting.


Well to answer your question words hold power depending on who's saying them. The N word was used to demoralize and put black people below and in there place. So to use this as an example,if i were to call you a lazy bum you wouldn't give a rat butt what i said. But say your mother called you that it would hold a much greater meaning. As for tupac he's not the king of black people and doesn't speak for all of us. I know me and the people i associate with we don't call each other thugs or whatever else.

I agree. A man should never hit a woman, unless she is endangering his life. IE; I would knock the fug out of a 13-year old girl if she was pointing a gun at me.

Rice is a POS. If she was spitting on him & hitting him he should've either just walked away & let it go or walked away & called police. Then she would've went to jail for assault.

He deserves a hefty jail sentence.

But women should also be held responsible. Just because men shouldn't hit them doesn't mean they should feel like they can verbally & physically assault men.

I disagree,Like chris rock said there's a reason to push a 80 year old woman down a flight of stairs. We don't have all the facts. We don't know what she did to rice. Saying he deserves anything is finding someone guilty before even going to trial. I think our Society as men has lost control over the boundaries that separate men from women. Women hold more power over men than women to to the point i think it's being use against us. They know If they even say we hit them and we didn't were going to jail. If I come to your house and ring your door bell and your gf or wife says i hit u im going to jail. The same thing can be said with Civil cases of child support or in marriage breakups. Who more than half the time has to pay who? who get he the kids the house and so on 80% of the time? Women know they are protected by the law and some women use that to there advantage. Who's to say this woman didn't provoke this to sue and win in court and gain a huge amount of money from rice?

So is it ok to call him a thug? Because I really want to.

How come "thug" is never applied to white people when this kind of stuff happens? I've never seen incognito called a thug for the whole martin thing.

Not at all. What he wants and what he's going to get are two diffrent things. he had a awful season last year. he won't be getting paid cruz money because cruz was having a successful season when he got his deal.
