  1. The "Non" Mt Rushmore Symbols of the Dan Snyder Era

    The Native American charity thing is arguably the single most cynical act of his tenure. It's the very definition of "paying money to make a problem go away." It also doesn't seem to have actually done anything since 2015.

    Turning the cheerleaders into escorts was clever in a diabolical way, I suppose. Um...…. I guess giving Joe Gibbs all the money in the world so his kid could be an NFL coach was something.

    A star of Lebron's level will have a no-franchise tag clause in any contract they sign after age 22. Also, I love the idea that Lebron is "doing something to" Cleveland. He's made Dan Gilbert several billion dollars, won them a title, and put them in the Finals every year. Sign me up for that torture.
  4. Season Ticket Renewals

    You're just a better person than the rest of us, I suppose. Honestly, at this point, I'd only go to an NFL game if someone gave me tickets in a luxury suite. It's such a bad experience everywhere. (Luxury boxes are amazing. I want to live in one).
  5. I worked in a concession stand in an outdoor ampitheatre (like Merriweather Post) for a summer in college. You do not want to know how the food was handled, stored, prepared etc. That $5 box of popcorn was probably a leftover from the last game. We never sold the candy - M&Ms, etc. At the end of every show, we threw a bag over it and left. The person would buy M&Ms in August did not that box had been sitting in an un-airconditoned shed since April.
  6. Thoughts on Wash DC as a Championship town and it's meaning for the Skins.

    First of all, the Caps winning effects nothing. The Caps have a very strong, very die-hard fan base. It's about 1/8 the size of the Redskins on a good day. Hockey is one of those sports that everyone loves for four weeks when the team is winning, and then never think about again. It will be used to throw shade at Snyder, but a lot of stuff can be used to embarrass Snyder. By the way, does anyone but me think that the three biggest debacles of the Snyder Era have happened in the last 18 months or so. 1. The alkie GM debacle. 2. The Cousins' contract debacle 3. The "Hey, we've been lying to you about season tickets for 20 years" debacle. Otherwise, it's a well-oiled machine.

    Harden and Paul should have beaten the Warriors. It's amazing how quickly that series has gone into the memory hole. Houston lost it's All-World point guard and missed 150 threes at home. Otherwise, they are most likely the champs right now.
  8. 1. Cincy has ample parking since they razed all the public schools in order to pay for the Stadium, 2. I hope you enjoyed your diarrhea from the chili.
  9. The "Non" Mt Rushmore Symbols of the Dan Snyder Era

    None of you guys know how to do things. 1. Deion's burgundy suit from his first presser 2. The expired airline peanuts 3. RGIII's trademark certificates 4. Vinny's racquetball racquet
  10. There are still miners who defend Don Blankenship "for giving them jobs." It's a slave mentality.

    Boston would take Lebron obviously. But they (and possibly Houston) are the two franchises that would be skeptical of the one-year contract that Lebron forces you to sign. They seriously have opened something like a ten year window to win a title. Switching that to one-year in a league where the Warriors still exist is really risky and not in line with what Ainge typically does. I think they need a multiple year commitment from Lebron to go in that big with a superstar. Cleveland almost has to take whatever they can get at this point unless they decide that letting Lebron walk simply makes the most financial sense. And it may.

    I've reached the conclusion that Irving beat you up and stole your wife. That's the only thing that explains this. (Okay. I read your follow-ups and this now makes more sense. I thought you were saying Porter and ballast > Kyrie).
  13. Ah, I'll miss the BS stories about the waiting list.
  14. This really strikes me as simply government filling the vacuum that was created when unions declined in power. My grandfather was a very active USW member. His argument for unions was almost entirely focused on safety.
  15. That statement by the 'Treasurer' was under oath. That's just amazing.
