    • Ok,, we're in that time of season,  where we won't make the playoffs,,  we know it's better to lose , tank ,  to get a better draft pick,, but can't get our heads around hoping we lose..   So I'll be rooting for the Panthers to beat the rival falcons..  and know that what I eat will be more important than what the game is like..  but I'll watch and hope we win. " Mount Up Men,,  Ride To The Sound Of The Cannon Fire,,,,  There's a battle to be fought " Had oysters last evening with neighbors,,  to watch the C L E M P S O N game and have a small amount left over for this afternoon.  Yes,  ClemPson won, so , so will the Panthers,,  Lucky Oysters   
    • I should add that I think the fine system is way out of control.  First, here are a few suggestions: 1.  Fine only for hits that seem intentional that endanger another player.  Fines for penalties that are designed to protect a player's safety are not always fair.  For example, if a defender horse collars another player to save a TD.  Or if a player targets another player's head.  Or a high/low combo block that seems planned.  Incidentally, the same rule applies to fights such as hitting another player with his own helmet, poking eyes, etc. Fine that.  Not players who commit unfortunate penalties within the speed of the game.  Yes, White should have been penalized and fined. 2.  If a player is injured as a result of a hit that was determined (by a panel or committee) to be intentional, then the fine should coincide with that player being suspended for the amount of time it takes the injured party to return to action.  The player White hit did not return; neither should White have been allowed to continue.   Old Testament justice,  to be honest, up to a set number of games.  If the Olsen hit causes him to miss 3 games, for example, the Falcon player should sit for 3 games if the hit was determined to be intentional. 
    • FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — When a Saudi Air Force officer opened fire on his classmates at a naval base in Pensacola, Fla., on Friday, he killed three, wounded eight and exposed anew the strange dynamic between President Trump and the Saudi leadership: The president’s first instinct was to tamp down any suggestion that the Saudi government needed to be held to account.   Mr. Trump was so quick and so eager to assure the Saudis that the relationship would continue before anyone knew how to categorize the shooting that it raised questions about how the administration would have responded if the suspect had been an Iranian, or an immigrant from Mexico. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Mr. Trump often cited the killing of a young woman in California by an undocumented immigrant as a reason to crack down on immigration and build a wall along the southern border. “Had an attack been carried out by any country on his Muslim ban, his reaction would have been very different,” said Aaron David Miller, a longtime Middle East negotiator and now a senior fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. “But when it comes to Saudi, the default position is to defend,” he said, “Driven by oil, money, weapons sales, a good deal of Saudi feting and flattery, Trump has created a virtually impenetrable zone of immunity for Saudi Arabia.”    Still, the bond between the countries is weakening, as the erosion of support in Congress shows. A negotiation over providing nuclear technology to the Saudis, a huge push early in the administration, has stalled. The chances that the military support will remain at current levels appear slim. “The U.S.-Saudi relationship is on life support,” Mr. Riedel said, noting that it would be in jeopardy if a Democrat were to win the 2020 election. “Even Joe Biden is calling the Kingdom a ‘pariah’ that needs to be punished,” he said, referring to the former vice president, who had for decades supported a strong relationship with the Saudis.
