    10-6 Finish, Tell Me It Can Happen, Please....

    Theres no value in intentionally losing, I wont root for it, it feeds a culture that accepts failure, which some folks up top are in denial about.

    This comes across as another fan card pulling attempt. That may not be what it meant but if you are still here posting about the team making you miserable rooting for them, you're a diehard who jus jsnt dead yet. A diehard isnt who spends the most money, its who's left when it feels there no reason left. If people want to vent, I'm fine with it, its comradery at this point. Go to any therapist and they will tell you at some point it is unhealthy to not keep what's happening to you in context and denying how bad it actually is. This is worse then it looks, and if folks come here to help get through it, it's better then telling them to leave, because they wont come back. We arent in a position to be calling folks bandwagoners. God, I wish Snyder read this site, different conversation possibly.

    The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

    I'll be honest, there are going to be games I go to jus to see the other team play and root for the Wizards to win. I cant think of another more obvious tank that the best player fully bought into, this is weird. They had to of told him they plan to trade for a player to pair with him once some more crap comes off the books, this team looks completely uncompetitive on paper, even drafting a #1 overall pick may take a second to realize their final form, Beal and Wall will be old by then

    What the hell is Wrong with Scherff?

    I'm going to watch the 49ers game when I get back, expecting it to be a reminder that it's not about him not being elite enough to make up for linemen around him not doing well or constant 8 in the box to attack the run. Theres a difference between getting beat and guessing who to help to save the play and being wrong. This is different conversation then saying how much to pay him. In my head, he doesnt need to be elite, they need to figure out how to not create another gapping hole thinking you can find better elsewhere for a better price. I'd rather overpay then going into next season saying we had so many holes we couldnt plug the one we intentionally created.
  8. I'm waiting to cast my vote before seeing some more responses. This is the story I just read that prompted this thread, but is China the bully know one wants to punch square in the mouth, not even us? If this is the line, what is it? China is harvesting thousands of human organs from its Uighur Muslim minority, UN human-rights body hears https://www.businessinsider.com/china-harvesting-organs-of-uighur-muslims-china-tribunal-tells-un-2019-9 The UN Human Rights Council heard on Tuesday that China is engaged in widespread harvesting of human organs from persecuted religious and ethnic minorities. The China Tribunal made the accusation at the council's meeting in Geneva, Switzerland. It said Uighur Muslims and the Falun Gong religious group were affected. The China Tribunal is a group backed by an Australian human rights charity that's investigating the issue. A lawyer for the group said China was "cutting out the hearts and other organs from living, blameless, harmless, peaceable people," describing the situation as an atrocity. China has deniedlarge-scale harvesting of organs. It has acknowledged using executed prisoners' organs in the past but says it stopped in 2015, according to Reuters. China was accused on Tuesday of harvesting human organs from persecuted groups in the country. The China Tribunal, a group that's investigating the organ harvesting, said at a tense meeting of the United Nations Human Rights Council that the Chinese government was taking hearts, kidneys, lungs, and skin from groups including Uighur Muslims and members of the Falun Gong religious group. The China Tribunal describes itself as an "independent, international people's tribunal, and was backed by the International Coalition to End Transplant Abuse in China, an Australian human rights charity made up of lawyers, academics, and medical professionals. China has denied carrying out mass harvesting of organs in any circumstance. Addressing UN representatives, a lawyer for the China Tribunal, Hamid Sabi, said the group had proof of the organ harvesting. Sabi said the group had found that China was committing "crimes against humanity" by harvesting organs from religious minorities like the Uighurs and members of Falun Gong, which has been banned and widely persecuted by the Chinese government. "Forced organ harvesting from prisoners of conscience, including the religious minorities of Falun Gong and Uighurs, has been committed for years throughout China on a significant scale," Sabi said in a video published on the China Tribunal website. Sabi was presenting evidence from the tribunal's final report, published in June, which found that a "very substantial number" of prisoners were "killed to order" by the Chinese government. They were "cut open while still alive for their kidneys, livers, hearts, lungs, cornea and skin to be removed and turned into commodities for sale," the report said. The body parts were then used for medical purposes, it said, citing extremely short wait times for organ transplants in Chinese hospitals as evidence of the practice. The report was led by Sir Geoffrey Nice, a British lawyer who was the lead prosecutor in the trial of Slobodan Milosevic, the former Yugoslavian president.
  9. But hes the richest man in the world because hes a genius... My reluctance on suggesting Bezos buy the team has grown considerably lately.

    What the hell is Wrong with Scherff?

    Tape dont lie.
  11. Mods - if this violates forum rules, I'll except the punishment, but please move the thread to the tailgate instead of closing it so we can continue the discussion. I'll try my best to keep this specific to the Redskins and not get off topic or worse political, I dont think its necessary for this discussion I used to defend the hell out of him, spending money on players to give us better chance to win. Then I realized how little he was spending on everything else to get us to be the best organization money can. Theres nothing about this team to suggest hes actually investing in every way possible to put us over the top. I do not believe winning is more important to him then being right. His willingness to risk not getting a stadium in DC over refusal to consider changing the name should've of been the final warning for me. My feelings on the name change are irrelevant here, I'd rather keep it, but that hed rather keep the name then move back to DC showed this is more about pride them willingness to compromise. If they repurpose the RFK site, they may never play in DC again, is it worth it? But this last game Bears game, I'm concerned total embarrassment doesnt bother him as much as we wish it would or bothers us. That as far as hes concerned people are still buying tickets regardless of who they are, so skins fans not going wont get the effect we want. Even if they spell ring of fame players names wrong when they are being inducted, not a peep. I believe theres truth to even if Allen is replaced, it will be another fool that knows how to stroke Snyders ego to buy him more time then he deserves. This is a pattern, this is who he is. Hes not going to change for the better, hes doubling down. I'm ready for all options to be put on the table to open the door for someone like Bezos to buy the team. The closest I can find is what the other Owners threatened Jerry Jones with recently: https://www.nydailynews.com/sports/football/nfl-lays-groundwork-remove-jerry-jones-cowboys-owner-article-1.3635937 I dont know if we've reached the point of being able to convince the league Snyder has become a threat to the league in general, but I do believe some of them are sick of the drain he is causing by wasting one of the largest media markets in the country. I'm having trouble finding an article I saw with that quote, but are we at the point we can convince the owners to force him out? This thread is for whether we have enough evidence to push for the NFL to force Snyder to sell the team. If we should is a discussion I'm open to as well. I dont know if we have enough evidence, but believe it's time to look. We are running out of time.

    I have an attachment to the team because they're my hometown team and remind me of home, or at least the concept of it. If my dad had a day off on sunday when I was younger, that's what he did, even if they got blown out, it was more time to spend with him. Them losing wont change that. Relationships are only as strong as what's capable of ending them. Times like these, yes, you should ask what's the point, or why you do it. Besides, I enjoy talking to yall about it, been doing it for years now. Tailgate is still pretty cool, I learn a lot there.
  13. This is on the assumption the new coach knows what they are doing or the Cards are right on Murry. That pock should be traded down, we already have a QB for someone to come in and day that's bot my guy. I dont care, new coaches inherit QBs all the time. It's way too early to call the bust card, we knew he was a project, why wont we act like it?
  14. I'll watch when I get home, but theres no way this play action can work if you cant pass Giving up on Haskins this early and drafting Tua might be final straw for me. Theyd waste him, too, without a plan
  15. This is what I'll say, I dont think her trying to get along with dictators as being pro-war, you might of meant something else, but I know where you going with this. Shes trying too hard to seem impartial while dealing with them in attempt to set up for her form of diplomacy with them. It's not as far as Trump, but even though I know what shes trying to do, she went too far with this with Syria. Shes tried a million times to clarify this, but it's too late now. This is a bad idea choosing to play "find the traitor" every year in our elections without any weigh in from the intelligence community. I agree with Tulsi basically getting the kiss of death from Russia, the endorsement nobody wants, but every candidate that best fits what they need is going to get from now on because they arent afraid to do it outloud anymore. What I dont want is for anyone that comes across as an isolationist to get the Russian stooge label. We arent talking about a corrupt businessman, she did to combat tours in middle east, theres a certain level of credibility she gets with me saying she wants to get out, she was actually there.

    Missing a Redskins' Game to Go to Paradise

    Agreed, with above. I'm in a business trip and going to miss the first Redskins game in years. They arent giving me a good enough reason to constantly be checking the score or sneaking off to a bar, I've already recorded it, I'll watch when I get home. Someone mentioned DVRing the games so they arent planning their sundays around watching them get their ass beat. That's more then fair at this point.
  17. I mean, what makes you think I havent? From what I gather shes want to treat war more as a last resort it should be because of how much money it costs should be going to homeland investment, that foesnt mean taking war completely off the table. Shes making the arguement we cant keep troops places indefinitely at the costs of trillions of dollars an expect to afford stuff like infrastructure and MFA. Shes right, the **** will bankrupt us and we dont look at it that because defense contractors are for profit and people keep helping us cover or deficits without asking questions. Ya, I've tried to defend her when shes right for a while now, but she makes it straight up impossible when shes wrong.
  18. If you want to make the arguement she tried to hard to seem impartial on whether Assad used chemical weapons, I agree, her backtrack did not work. But I spoke specifically to US intervention overseas and the dangers of saying someone who is basically an isolationist is doing it for Russia. When I made the thread about even discussing leaving NATO the thread devolved into people accusing each other of Russian talking points, now were talking about whether to sanction Turkey or kick them out if NATO. For Hillary to even insinuate that candidates like Tulai could be getting backed by the Russians without an investigation is going to backfire and give Tusli the type of victim attention she doesnt deserve. We cant be afraid to have these conversations, I'm more concerned about what seems to be her outward admission if realpolitik, but there are generals that feel we can and should close our overseas bases. I agree with calling her out, I do not agree with throwing around the traitor tag, that is a dangerous label that's going to prevent honest conversations about our foreign policy. I hate what Pete did insinuating that because she wanted to get out of Syria she supported how Trump did it, that's not what shes doing.

    Dammit @Chew, I'm stuck in denver because the flight cant leave without the flight attendants and no one knows where they are. Please, politely ask them if they have work in the morning to see if it jogs whatever memory they have left.
  20. Couldnt agree more in these endorsements, it feels like an act of desperation to save his campaign. He just had a heart attack, he not going to make it 8 years doing arguably the most stressful job in the world.
  21. Shes the poster child for what it looks like agreeing with Russia on anything right now, I dont think shes a plant. She wants to stop our insistence on getting in the middle of every damn thing or at least having to do everything ourselves, of course Russia would like that, but is she 100% wrong? We're defending authoritarian governments from authoritarian governments, this is exactly what the founding fathers warned about in the dangers of entangled international relationships. We claim to be a beacon of freedom but get silent when it would mean closing a strategic military base, like Bahrain during the Arab Spring. Strategic for what now?
