    Russia's only aircraft carrier on fire in port: news agencies A fire broke out Thursday on Russia's only aircraft carrier as it underwent repairs in an Artic shipyard, Russian news agencies said, with at least one worker reported missing. The Admiral Kuznetsov has been undergoing repairs for more than two years in Murmansk and suffered previous damage in October 2018 when a crane crashed onto its deck. State news agency RIA Novosti quoted a source in the Zvezdochka shipyard as saying the fire broke out during welding operations. More than 400 people were on board when the fire erupted, state news agency TASS quoted a Zvezdochka spokesman as saying. News agency Interfax reported that the fire had spread over an area of about 600 square metres (6,500 square feet). The Admiral Kuznetsov -- launched in 1985 and the flagship of the Russian navy -- has been undergoing its first major repairs since 1997. The repairs were expected to be completed by the end of 2020, with the warship rejoining the navy in 2021. The vessel was deployed to the Mediterranean in 2016 and early 2017 to strike targets in Syria and help Moscow ally President Bashar al-Assad recapture rebel-held areas in the war-torn country. he Admiral Kuznetsov was meant to be the first of a new fleet of Soviet aircraft carriers but the Russian navy has struggled with a massive drop in funding since the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union. The USSR had five aircraft carriers at the height of its power. Click on the link for the full article

    Let me guide you... When you create a new thread in the title bar you need to put the source and the headline from that source since you are are referencing a news story. So the title should have said: PFT: Clinton Portis, nine other ex-NFL players charged with health care fraud Then in the body of the new thread you copy and paste the first few paragraph of the story like this: The United States Department of Justice has charged 10 former NFL players with defrauding a health care program for retired players. Former Washington and Denver running back Clinton Portis is among those who have been charged. He is joined by Carlos Rogers, Robert McCune, John Eubanks, Tamarick Vanover, Ceandris Brown, James Butler, Frederick Bennett, Correll Buckhalter and Etric Pruitt. Former NFL wideouts Joe Horn and Reche Caldwell are also expected to be charged with conspiracy to commit health care fraud. More at the link below. Discuss. Then you put the link from your browser, you know where it says www.whatever.com or in this case this: https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/12/12/clinton-portis-nine-other-ex-nfl-players-charged-with-health-care-fraud/ This is how you make a new thread from a news article posted on the interwebs.

    Because like most bullies, he's really a coward and afraid to face tough questions about the impeachment and all his lies.

    I have hope for Haskins in part because of the baseline things: He goes through reads - we’ve all seen qbs (especially inexperienced ones) lock onto receivers, or coaches solely giving them 1/2 field reads. He can stand tall in the pocket - he isn’t usually spooked by the first sign of pressure. He can move around in the pocket and throw on the move - plenty of qbs just have no feel for pressure and/or move into said pressure. He’s for high end arm talent. Game situation (down two scores, for example) usually doesn’t cause him to force things. He seems open to coaching/advice - maybe a mixed bag here, I don’t know, but his relationship with Smith is encouraging. Working on protections is another example (nothing groundbreaking here, I mean, it’s the norm after all, but still a positive). He seems willing to work on weaknesses - working on syncing his feet to his upper body for example. Generally keeps his eyes downfield when pressured. He’s confident. Had a good size for the position. Trimmed down a bit and seems much lighter on his feet than he did in college. Not afraid of tight window throws. Seems like he’s trying to shut out the noise and doesn’t seem the type that will get in trouble with the law. Now, on one hand, that’s a nice list of positives, yet a number of those are (as I said) some baseline things you expect from any qb. The negatives are piled up as well - touch on certain throws, throwing with anticipation, mechanics, getting his protections right, not taking the easy stuff often enough, and of course all of the reports regarding preparation, indifference, handling the media/criticism, etc. Here’s hoping he improves on those negatives (I think they’re all fixable, though the character stuff concerns me). Given his inconsistency (and our blocking issues) there’s every reason for defenses to keep sending pressure (especially disguising it). Hopefully Haskins is able to start making teams pay for this on a (more?) consistent basis and coaches find a way to help - whether through hot reads, PA passing, added protection, quick passing game, throwing early more often, going uptempo, etc. I’m looking forward to seeing how things progress, but damn if it hasn’t been a whole lot of ugly so far.

    Maybe you are correct. But I don't create an alternate reality in order to allow myself to pretend that there is some hope. Maybe if enough of us clown Doofus Dan Snyder with the reality of his ineptitude he will eventually sell the team. We already know that he is embarrassed.

    First, no one, and I mean not a single person has said, or even come close to saying all will be right with the world when Bruce is fired. We all - and i mean ALL, understand that the ultimate issue is Dan. But Dan is not firing himself. So you are jsut making that up. Not only is Bruce next in line he is also a POS. So while it probably will not make any difference, him staying here will continue to make it worse. So yes, I will feel like we at least some minor glimmer of hope. Will it likely turn out the same way? Yes, probably. But doing nothing is worse. Not sure why that's so hard to see for some. I mean what is your answer, just give up? **** that! The only thing that has a chance of making a change that has any real chance of actually happening is bruce being fired and dan dumbing his way into a better situation. And maybe, just maybe he has learned something. Doubtful. But leaving the same is a guarantee it never gets better. So pardon me if i take a little solace in at least getting rid of one POS even if it just means another takes it place.

    Better than being excited about keeping Bruce around. Here is the thing. firing Bruce offers hope. There is a chance, that one day, Snyder will hire a good GM and get out of the way. With Bruce, there is no modicum of hope. Even if the next guy stinks, there will be a couple of years in the beginning where we can say, "you know what, lets at least wait and see how this pans out". Offering any bit of relief on the current stranglehold of suck that we are in is welcomed.

    Holy Moly who is this lady? She is fantastic. The Republicans are reacting to their majorities going away. Much slower in certain areas than others, but it is coming. So what they are doing is attempting to stack courts, rig elections, do everything in the power now, so when they can't win elections with votes, it won't matter.
