    Read the next sentence kiddo It is not about the cost or paying less, it is the principle of tipping.

    Besides the numerous reasons why tipping is outdated and should be done away with, I have an issue with being responsible for someone else's wage. It is not about the cost or paying less, it is the principle of tipping. By definition a tip is a reward for good service. It should not be a paycheck and its not my responsibility to pay a workers paycheck. If you want to raise prices or include a service fee then do so but a consumer giving workers money for carrying food 25 feet is dumb. Giving people a reward for doing their job well is a different story. I tip my barber after his 40 dollar flat rate when the cut is good and if it is not then I don't.The same should apply to the fast food industry. If the service I receive is extraordinary(it rarely is) then my waiter gets a modest tip. Either way whether or not a waiter gets a livable wage shouldn't be dependent on the goodwill of a stranger. Just pay them a minimum wage like everyone else. Really easy concept to grasp.

    Because its what I can afford and I want a higher quality product that isn't dependent on how much money I give someone to bring my food to my table. If you're going to a higher end restaurant and can't order for yourself because you don't understand whats on the menu then you don't belong there either way. Tipping is so horribly old fashioned. Just pay someone a normal wage instead of putting the responsibility on the diner to make up a fast food workers salary.

    Lmao if you value fine dining then you should have an idea of what goes with what. Come off the high horse. You're on a football forum talking about how fancy you are lmao

    Doesn't matter. Just bring me whatever wine I ordered and leave the table. I'm not tipping you more because you tell me something may taste better. Waiters need a set wage so that they don't get mad when I don't give them extra money for doing their job.

    Zion Williamson to Duke!!!!

    But what actually constitutes a connection? If you watch every single game/follow all news/attend games when possible/only cheer for a team then are you any less of a fan than someone that went to the school? The connection is developed emotionally and as long as you don't break that then your bond with a university is just as strong as anyone else's. Like I said, I believe that if you're loyal to one team then you have every right to represent that team/school. I do have a problem with people that only represent Duke when we are winning titles or have 4-5 teams in one sport.

    Again, you're chiding people for cheering for something they aren't technically a part of outside of geography. By that logic then since you don't actually have a roll inside of the organization outside of geography then you're not allowed to be excited about the Panthers. /s

    lol type "ECU acceptance rate" straight into your browser and tell me what comes up buddy. The point that I'm making is that attending a school isn't the only requirement of being a fan. ECU with its horrendous acceptance rate accepts more students than Duke does. Of course more people will have a connection to a public school than a private school. You've never been a part of the Panthers organization yet you're a Panther fan because they're your chosen team(whether this is due to geography, childhood roots or convenience is up to you). Loyalty and consistency is all that matters when considering ones own fandom. You yourself said it the best with "don't cheer for any other programs." I have a problem with bandwagon fans in any sport but someone that represents one chosen team only for whatever reason they choose is fine in my books. I'm a huge Duke fan because it's where I'm starting my Masters this upcoming fall. My love of Duke came from one parent and a brother that attended the university. As a result when I became a Duke sports fan around eight years old I definitely had an appreciation for their academics over anything else. My father played basketball at Gardner-Webb and two years in the NBA with the Cavs. Does that mean I have to be a GWU and Cavs fan?

    "Lets all be excited about mediocre schools with an 80% acceptance rate"
  10. That would be great if you could do that. My wife graduated in 97 and hasn't been able to go to a game yet. My kids are becoming big football fans as well so if I got a chance to take them I'd be thrilled. I appreciate you replying to my message.


  11. Mike Remmers lost the game for us. Two strip sacks from his side led to 14 points.
  12. Can we take a second to acknowledge how horrible Mike Remmers has been? Cost us the game in my opinion.
  13. That wasn't on Oher. Fozzy was supposed to help him out.
