  3. Election 2017 Thread

    Just yesterday I made note in a thread that most of you have read or posted in, that when a mod makes a post in a thread about mod stuff, members are not to add posts opining on it in response unless directly asked---as per forum rules for years---to avoid what are very unrelated off topic exchanges and even actual extended debates (per earlier years of experience). and yet here we are, just after yesterday. You use pms or the feedback thread/forum. Please read, comprehend, and follow the forum rules and guidelines.
  4. This huge WaPo report is so incredibly damning. Trump is a national security risk, plain and simple. Doubting the intelligence, Trump pursues Putin and leaves a Russian threat unchecked https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2017/world/national-security/donald-trump-pursues-vladimir-putin-russian-election-hacking/?utm_term=.2ecc0b50abac There are way too many insane/scary/idiotic parts in there to really be able to quote the most egregious ones. Just read the whole thing. Trump doesn't just refuse to admit the Russian interference because he knows it's true but doesn't want it to stay in the spotlight. The guy is so borderline psychotically emotionally fragile and insecure that he literally won't (or can't) even believe that the interference even happened. So because of that absolutely nothing is being done to try and prevent it again. I truly believe the 25th amendment could be becoming more and more legitimate here. If POTUS is so emotionally invested in things that he refuses to even acknowledge facts or reality and refuses to face a clear threat to the United States from a foreign adversary who has already waged an unprecedented attack on our very democratic process and act on it then he clearly is incapable of carrying out his duties.

    I agree with this. Look, Jeter came in with his own ideas of how to build a team from the ground up, and they obviously differ greatly from what he inherited. You can't slap a band aid on a fundamental philosophical break. You have to burn it down and start from scratch. He's only going to get good value if he's willing to say no to a trade. His goal does not appear to get good value, his goal appears to be to burn it down and start over. Those two goals are not mutually exclusive, but they are entirely in agreement either. I wish someone would come do that for the Redskins. I think the Yankee's current squad is dramatically overrated. They'll be good, but people are trying to award them the WS already (and making comments like they could be the best team EVER), I don't even think they should be the favorite.
  6. ***2017-18 NBA Season Thread***

    You get to make a two star team and can have any two players in the NBA except not both of LeBron and Durant. Who do you take? I'd go Durant and Kawhi. If this is a keeper league I go Giannis and Brow.

    Sorry, the second part was not directed at you specifically. I should have said that. My apologies. I have edited.
  8. Season Ticket Renewals

    ...it will also be several years before we are any good....and there's no guarantee on that, especially with Snyder at the helm....so the feeling is why keep these if we are going to be bad for the short run (possibly longer) and have to give these up if/when a new stadium comes along? I agree that a new stadium is speculation at this point, but between VA, DC, and MD, IMHO, one of those is going to be dumb enough to give him a stadium. I live in Virginia and I am hoping our govt learned from Richmond what happens when you make a deal with Snyder. BTW, I am going to see if my brother wants to join me in 401. I split my four tickets with another guy and I would not be surprised if the other guy drops out or only wants one ticket in 2018. I am beginning to think that the only way we can rid ourselves of Snyder is to prevent a new stadium being built and he either moves or sells the team. I am almost willing to see Snyder move the team if we can get a deal like Cleveland got when the Browns moved to Baltimore...keep the name, colors, etc.

    That doesnt even the playing field. Not even close. Even with Revenue sharing and other shared revenue, the Yankees are still able to afford to have a payroll 3 times what their "opponents" can spend. Its the equivalent of Alabama playing in the MAC conference in Football. Sure some other team may win it every once in a while, but Bama would never finish last. I also crack up at Yankee fans boasting about how good they're going to be. OF COURSE THEY ARE! If they dont win 100 games and win the WS this year it will be the biggest failure in sports in 2018.
  10. It's rare that the Post emails its digital subscribers to point out a particularly important piece that they wrote. They did it for this one. It's very long, some interesting tidbits are below. https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2017/world/national-security/donald-trump-pursues-vladimir-putin-russian-election-hacking/?hpid=hp_rhp-banner-high_trumprussia%3Ahomepage%2Fstory&utm_term=.a91fdd654f6e Doubting the intelligence, Trump pursues Putin and leaves a Russian threat unchecked

    from rule 6 from rule 18 maybe what the tailgate actually needs is a much more strict application of all the rules given how comfy more than a few people (not you) here are with ignoring them, not knowing them, etc. and on this end it all means more work/time and less fun/posting
  12. Latest FA Disappointment: Josh Norman

    That's why he became a stud in Carolina. They had one of the best, if not the best front 7 and could get pressure on the QB and force them to make bad throws, early throws, etc. That along with being a system DB playing one side of the field allowed him to become an elite play maker. He still is a great CB, imo, but I think a lot of the decline this year is due to the injuries. And I really don't even blink at what he said about not wanting to be someplace where you can't have a chance to win a SuperBowl. He's a passionate player, emotional and tells it like it is. After going 9-7, then 8-7-1 and making some really good additions in FA and draft, this team, when healthy, should be a 10 or 11 win team and in the playoffs. He knows that, players, fans, coaches know that and then we get hit with the injury bug and watch our chances evaporate. Plus he made those comments after he had a horrible game and any hope/sliver of a chance ended with that loss. He will be back, no way the team opts out. We just need to lock down Kirk and Breeland and focus on defense in FA and the draft again. And RB, we need to snag another RB.
  13. Latest FA Disappointment: Josh Norman

    A post-June 1 cut would provide 14m in cap space for 2018 along with 3m in dead cap with another 6m in dead cap for 2019. Not that I'd like to give up on him but if he seriously doesn't want to play here, that may be a way to do it as then you'd probably have enough to keep Breeland.
  14. Election 2017 Thread

    Right? No, Roy. Immorality almost swept over the land. But fortunately you lost.
  15. 2017 MLB Thread

    Because the Yankess pay millions (pause) .. and millions to these other teams through revenue sharing. Screwing the Yankees in the way you described takes money out of their pockets. Which in many cases, the owners pocket while thier fans turn around to complain that the Yankees have too much money.

    Admiring the chutzpah of Roy Moore claiming that the fact that he didn't get elected indicates that the country is losing morality.

    Rule 6 is about profanity. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  18. Xbox One Vs Ps4

    LOL, like I said, I spent the minimum amount of time on settlement building. Therefore, in lieu of traps hooked up to laserbeam tripwires and terminals (and I have no idea what IFF is), what I did was just build a ring of missile turrents at the edges of the settlements and in elevated positions. And arm my settlers with spare miniguns and institute lasers. I don't think I've ever built a single trap or used a single terminal.
  19. Some More Cops Who Need to Be Fired

    I don't necessarily see it as a race thing. My point is that police misconduct doesn't matter to the media. They do not care.
  20. Election 2017 Thread

    think about who your talking to re: willingness to include violence as part of problem solving (only after due diligence in analysis of course) there are ways to get the same message across in more creative/subtle but still clear enough manner while staying out of trouble---i do it regularly
  21. Latest FA Disappointment: Josh Norman

    His contract is through 2020, but the Redskins can opt out of it after he turns 30 (which he does tomorrow), basically before the 2018 season. So a two year evaluation and if the team opts out, it's a 9 million dead cap hit (think thats it).
  22. Election 2017 Thread

    This is kinda fun.
  23. Some More Cops Who Need to Be Fired

    You're right, the crazy part is in just how complacent people are, how their eyes skip right past it in the news without the tiniest flicker of thought. No trace of compassion, never a thought to someone losing their child, never one iota of "What would happen to me in this situation"? It's a disgrace.
  24. The State of the Roster

    I left Cousins off intentionally. I referenced it in the OP - I’m leaving him to the appropriate thread to avoid derailing this one. That said, I’d have him in tier 2 (6-15th best at his position. I understand about Reed, but look at it this way... do you discount Sean Lee when evaluating Dallas’s defense? Do you look at Lee and say, “sure, he’s a great ILB, but he’s hurt so often so I’d instead say he’s ‘just good’. Reed’s still an excellent pass catching TE. If you want to just leave him off because we can’t rely on him.... sure, I can understand that. Don’t think you say he’s less talented though because of health. Less valuable maybe, but not less talented. I could see an argument that poor blocking by Reed bumps him down to (the upper part of) tier 2.
  25. Per Schefter: Su'a Cravens Considering Retirement

    no, he lost his right to compete for the Skins. For all we know he'd win a spot and then decide to flake out again. Maybe we could get a conditional pick for next year
