  1. We’ve been trying to break Mademoiselle Butthead (that’s her French name when she’s feeling fancy ) of her habit of drinking out of the tub drain. Last weekend I picked up one one those filtered water flowing bowl thingamahjiggies. It took a week but Issues finally decided to drink out of it. And then in typical Issues fashion, she gave it the gravity test & immediately knocked it off the desk into the floor.
  2. Just get a room, some peanut butter, & a goat & get it over with.
  3. LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – Former Washington Redskins Coach Joe Bugel passed away today at the age of 80. Bugel, regarded as one of the greatest offensive line coaches in NFL history, was the team's offensive coordinator and offensive line coach from 1981-82 and became the assistant head coach in 1983, a role he would hold until 1989 before becoming the head coach of the Phoenix Cardinals. Bugel returned for a second stint with the team as assistant head coach-offense from 2004-09. "I am absolutely devastated by the news of Joe's passing. Joe was a larger than life figure and a true legend of his profession. He exemplified what it meant to be a Redskin with his character and ability to connect with his players along with a work ethic that was unmatched. We shared a special bond and he was a great friend. He was a man who not only gave me a better understanding of the game of football, but who also gave me perspective on what is truly important in life. I absolutely adored him and will miss him terribly. Tanya and I would like to extend our deepest condolences to Brenda and the entire Bugel family during this time," said Washington Redskins Owner Dan Snyder. "Joe had an incredible passion for the game of football. He came to work every day with such great excitement and his players had tremendous respect for him. The strength of our coaching staff on both sides of the ball was a key reason we had so much success. Bugel was such a big part of that and his impact was felt not only by those Redskins' teams, but truly across the entire League. I will miss his friendship and I will always cherish our late-night arguments putting together the game plan each week. Pat and I will be praying for his wife Brenda, his girls, and their entire family," said former Washington Redskins Head Coach and Pro Football Hall of Famer Joe Gibbs. Bugel finished his iconic career having coached for 32 NFL seasons. Coaching under Hall of Fame Head Coach Joe Gibbs from 1981-89, Bugel was the architect of the dominating "Hogs" offensive line that included stalwarts Russ Grimm, Joe Jacoby, Mark May, Jeff Bostic and George Starke. The group, one of the most dominant in league annals, led the Redskins to three Super Bowls, including victories following the 1982 and 1987 seasons. Bugel was instrumental in the development of four offensive linemen earning Pro Bowl berths -- Grimm (4), Jacoby (4), Bostic (1) and May (1). Bugel was promoted to assistant head coach in 1983, the year the Redskins scored a then-NFL record 541 points. In his first nine years in Washington, he helped the Redskins' offense produce four 1,000-yard rushers, one 4,000-yard passer and nine 1,000-yard receivers. The Redskins were 92-48 in the regular season and 11-3 in the postseason in that span and won two Super Bowls in the 1982 and 1987 seasons. Bugel was hired by the then-Phoenix Cardinals as head coach in 1990. He would serve as the Cardinals' head coach for four seasons before joining the Oakland Raiders as assistant head coach/offense from 1995-96 and head coach in 1997. He also coached the offensive line for the San Diego Chargers from 1998-2001. After a two-year break from coaching, Bugel returned to the Redskins in 2004 as assistant head coach-offense under Joe Gibbs, although his primary job was to work with the offensive line. He stayed on as offensive line coach in 2008 and retired following the 2009 season. During his second stint with the team, Bugel was instrumental in the development and success of T Chris Samuels who made it to four-consecutive Pro Bowls under Bugel's tutelage from 2005-09. His front also helped RB Clinton Portis establish himself as one of the premier running backs of the decade. The Redskins had a 1,000-plus yard rusher in five consecutive seasons (2004-08) with Bugel leading the offensive line. Bugel's offensive front led the Redskins to consecutive Top 10 finishes in rushing yards per game in the 2005 and 2006 seasons. The Redskins ranked seventh in the NFL and averaged 136.4 yards per game in 2005. The following season (2006), Washington ranked fourth in the NFL with an average of 138.5 yards per contest. Additionally, the Redskins pass protection unit allowed just 19 sacks, third lowest in the NFL in 2006. A Pittsburgh native, Bugel was a two-way star in football at Munhall High School. In 2005, he was inducted into the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame (Western Chapter). Bugel and his wife, Brenda, have daughters: Angie, Jennifer and the late Holly Bugel. He was born on March 10, 1940.
  4. This is a Mod directive which falls under Rule 18. You all should know what it is & if not, you all should know where to find it at by now. That's a hint to go look it up ya goofs. Yeah. At least you're self aware enough to know you what you were doing was a no no. Here's the deal, so pay attention. So far, I'm not banning any of you. HOWEVER The next one that continues to talk politics in the Stadium, will result in not only themselves getting banned, but also get the previous "free pass" offenders banned as well. As Coach Gibbs would say, "You're ALL in this together."

  8. Saturday, Jun 20, 2020 11:30 AM Washington Redskins To Retire The Late Bobby Mitchell's Jersey LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Washington Redskins announced today they will be retiring the jersey of the late Bobby Mitchell, number 49. This will mark only the second time in the team's 88 year history a jersey number will officially be retired. The team also announced they are renaming the lower level of FedExField in honor of Mitchell. "There is no one more deserving of these honors than the late Bobby Mitchell. Bobby was one of the most influential players not only in our team's history, but in the National Football League. He excelled on the field, in the front office and most importantly in his community where he had a tremendous impact on the lives of so many through his charitable efforts. He was one of the greatest men I have ever known," said Washington Redskins Owner Dan Snyder. "Bobby would have been thrilled and humbled by this wonderful recognition. We were married for 64 years and while he worked hard and traveled throughout his life and was a dedicated football professional, he was also a totally dedicated family man. He was blessed by God with a large extended family and great friends. He was totally engaged in his work and his family and was a truly great man and a great husband. I would like to thank Dan Snyder and the entire Washington Redskins organization for this great honor," said Gwen Mitchell, wife of Bobby Mitchell. "This honor would have meant the world to him. He would have been thrilled, appreciative and humbled. He felt that the retiring of a jersey is the ultimate recognition of an athlete. My father was a great family man who would have embraced this well-deserved recognition of his many accomplishments," said Terri Mitchell, daughter of Bobby Mitchell. "He would have a look of shock on his face, just like he had when I told him he'd been selected to the same Professional Football Hall of Fame," said Robert Mitchell, son of Bobby Mitchell. "Bobby was our Jackie Robinson. He had to handle the pressure of being the first African American football player to integrate the Washington Redskins. He, like Jackie, was a military officer headquartered in the DC area when he received notice of his trade.," said former Redskins safety Brig Owens. "In the face of great adversity, he served as a role model for the Washington, D.C. community, The Redskins, its fan base and the NFL. He was committed to the National Leukemia Society and the Shaw Food Committee where for 40 years they fed over 500 families at Thanksgiving. He was more than an exceptional football player and athlete, he was an exceptional human being. He was like a brother to me." In addition, to the National Leukemia Society and Shaw Food Committee, Mitchell worked with a number of organizations to better his community. They included: the United Negro College Fund, the Howard University Cancer Research Advisory Committee, the American Lung Association of D.C., the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Commission, the National Urban League, the NAACP, the Junior Chamber of Commerce, the University of Illinois Presidents Council and the University of Illinois Foundation. Bobby Mitchell played in the NFL for 11 seasons and was a member of the Washington Redskins for seven . He was selected to the Pro Bowl four times during his career and was a three-time First Team All Pro selection. Mitchell appeared in 148 career games and finished his career with 2,735 rushing yards and 7,954 receiving yards along with 3,389 return yards. Upon Mitchell's retirement in 1968, his 14,078 all-purpose yards were the second most in NFL history. Altogether he spent 41 seasons as a Redskin, as a player and front office executive. During his tenure the team captured three Super Bowl titles. Mitchell's jersey will be officially retired at a jersey ceremony at a future home game. Bobby Mitchell passed away April 5, 2020.

  10. Those are taken from my Mac desktop & my iPhone. As you can see both links are showing. therefore I’m thinking it’s on your end.
  11. Greatest 15 minutes of football ever.
  12. Are you saying you finally found it or that it's not showing up?
  13. It's still on the home page same as always.
  14. The team has never ran the board. They've just paid the server/VB/Invision costs. Did he mention the time when he was hiding in Patrick Ramsey's bushes like a stalker to try to catch him for an interview? Cause that's what started the feud between him & the team. I bet he didn't mention though that when he first got on TV after leaving the WP that he got catfished into wearing a pink dress dress shirt for a "chick" that had been texting him.
  15. Not at this time ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  16. Yes. I think you're referring to the "theme" setting which is now basicly a default setting.
  17. No. Not everything is about you.
  18. DING. And that’s the kind of ish that will make the team just say eff it & turn the board off. I had to leave the house for the DMV before I could actually post anything to you idjits about it. Thanks to @MartinC for stepping in. You ALL owe him a beer. Needless to say, we’ll be going through that thread for a bit. Don’t expect it to return. Going forward, understand that there are certain phrases that will trigger alerts to certain .... government offices that may or may not have a TV show or several named after them on CBS.
  19. Grab your shovel.
