#3345770 Yes, Shaq was indeed the BPA

Posted by teeray on 01 May 2015 - 08:42 AM

A lot of the same guys who are upset with this pick are them same posters who were super upset with Smitty getting released and has pooed on everything Gettleman has done since.

Coincidence?


#3345428 Shaq Thompson is not an undersized linebacker

Posted by teeray on 01 May 2015 - 06:51 AM

considering that they are going to be using him in a variety of ways and probably more as a safety/LB hybrid i have a hard time classifying him as just an LB. he's a weapon on defense that gives us more versatility in what we can do. our top end defense just got better.


He's a bandit for now. It is like on a 4-2-5 defense. He is the third safety that can move up to line as defacto 3rd linebacker

What is best for the team is what's best for Cam


#3345413 Shout out to Josh Norman

Josh Norman seems like a cool dude. It was those other drunks in the background on the podcast that I am not sure about

We got young guys developing like Brown and Benji. We brought an over the top threat back in Ginn.

Draft isn't over either.

Our WRS will hopefully get better just because of experience. Ginn opens up a lot.

We should be fine.

He has a position. We got ourselves a bandit. He can play LB or safety. Hybrid player. Can get creative with scheme and confuse offenses out there.


#3342337 Move to Baltimore they said. It'll be fun they said.

I'm really not disputing your argument. But this shows my point, that if the police union is stronger than the state legislators? Someone's not been doing their job properly. I've been pretty clear that the BPD is beyond fugged up. But, I believe corrupt officials have allowed these practices to occur. Much like the Governor you mentioned. How much do you think he received in gifts and favors? And everyone around him that had a whiff of the stink going on?

No doubt, but if you are in a high crime area and you get painted as weak on crime you won't even get elected. It is a self fulfilling prophecy.


Hopefully that is starting to change because until the last 2 years or so law enforcement had wide support across both major parties (in general)

Pstall is super concerned about city hall. Borderline obsessed

Again. Legalize marijuana and eliminate forcible arrests for petty crimes and half this poo goes away.

Then we can start focusing more on society at large


#3341219 Fox News nailed it... just not the way they think they did

Posted by teeray on 29 April 2015 - 10:04 PM

BTW if they really wanted to hear it this is likely what they would have heard

A young Baltimorean, being questioned by Thomas Roberts of MSNBC about the negative message being sent by the destruction, turned the question back onto him. The woman, who gave her name as Danielle, asked “My question to you is, when we were out here protesting all last week for six days straight peacefully, there were no news cameras, there were no helicopters, there was no riot gear, and nobody heard us. ... So now that we’ve burned down buildings and set businesses on fire and looted buildings, now all of the sudden everybody wants to hear us.

“Why,” she asked, “does it take a catastrophe like this in order for America to hear our cry?”

Because, dear child, we all know those danged buildings are more revered and valued than any number of black male lives.

#3341201 Fox News nailed it... just not the way they think they did

Posted by teeray on 29 April 2015 - 09:49 PM

Sean Hannity had Geraldo Rivera on live from Baltimore. Some of the protesters noticed and became disruptive.

Not surprisingly the black community has been upset with Fox News and their coverage (shocker) so they were yelling things like "we don't need your false coverage" and "Fox News is "making money off of black pain" and yelling "Fox News lies". Also a protestor steps in front of the camera and has a verbal confrontation with Geraldo.

Then Geraldo went full Fox Newsian and called these protesters (for all he knows were just protesters) a bunch of "vandals".



Again, he had no reason to think they were "vandals" but it certainly does a good job of conflating all protesters with the few who actually looted and burned down businesses.

Actually they were voicing one of the things that has angered them. That Fox News, at least in their eyes, is lying and providing false coverage at the expense of their black pain.

But the real money quote for me was this morning when he went on Fox & Friends and said this:

"I had an important story to tell standing there," he said. "It’s exactly that kind of youthful anarchy that led to the destruction and pain in that community.”

Let's just set aside the fact that his "story to tell" was more important than the protester's story to tell (because his story to tell is surely different than theirs).

But "... exactly that kind of youthful anarchy that led to the destruction and pain in that community.”

No you half wit racist, you have it backwards. The destruction and pain in that community is what led to that kind of acts of anarchy.

But just look at what he did here with the help of a whole news channel.

1- conflate all the protesters with the looters and arsonists

2- denigrate the black protesters as "vandals" thus establishing the now conflated entirety of protesters as criminals

3 - then blame the now criminal black protestors for the pain in their community.

And in this, you see the reason for the black anger. Fox News nailed it by giving a perfect example of why they feel anger for being trivialized and lied about by conservatives.

Don't take my word for it. They were right there telling Rivera one of their frustrations for everyone to see and hear. Actually they yelled it in his face.

Yet somehow, Fox News and Geraldo Rivera still managed to miss it.


#3340719 Would you vote for Hillary?

Posted by teeray on 29 April 2015 - 05:16 PM

Oh man, nothing is worse than a food argument. This will not end well for us

Nah. I bet him a steak dinner Hillary would not be President.

He is pretty confident now, but so were the Clintons around 2007

But for the record, ribeye is the best steak.


#3340558 Yes Obama is the best President of my lifetime

Posted by teeray on 29 April 2015 - 03:28 PM

The debt created during the Bush administration's two illegal unfunded wars and the cost of irresponsible tax cuts continue to grow.

Like maxing out daddy's credit card and only making the minimum payments the nation's debt has ballooned. .

As shown below, lack of federal revenue, due to the Bush tax cuts are a major contributor to this problem and likely will be for decades to come.

deficit-causes.jpg?uuid=S00kmp-jEeGIZxDv

At the top you see “Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.” During the George W. Bush presidency those costs were financed through supplemental spending that was not part of the appropriations process. In short, the funding was kept off the books. But in a speech to a joint session of Congress in 2009, a newly inaugurated Obama announced the end to that deceptive budgetary practice.

Tax cuts and Medicare expansion during two wars is about the dumbest thing a party in power could possibly do.

What is it that made you guys all dislike each other so much in here?


For the most part I don't think people dislike each other in the TB. Maybe a few. Most of us just like to debate (argue) or vent.

Sometimes debate gets a little heated or emotional, but they all come back for more
