    Oh I get that mine is a minority opinion. But a **** ton of people watch The Voice and The X factor and think because someone can hit the notes on someone else's song that they are a great musician. How Will I Know, I Want To Dance With Somebody, So Emotional is IMHO lightweight pop crap. Not to mention the complete mess she made of her life. But I agree that she will get in. No question.

    Damn. Would have liked to see Jemerrio Jones stick.

    I totally support the induction of Todd Rungren, Pat Benatar, Soundgarden and especially Judas Priest but what about Warren Zevon, Little Feat, Foreigner, Blue Oyster Cult, J. Geils Band? The harsh truth is that Whitney Houston had the right complexion, straight white teeth and could keep pitch and that's it. Never wrote a song a day in her life.

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    My first game owning season tickets after YEARS on the waiting list was coincidentally also Dan Snyder’s first game as owner. The Skins had a three touchdown lead on the Dallas Cowboys and ended up losing that first game with me as a season ticket holder and him as the owner. Talk about foreboding. I watched as week after week Snyder took something that was fun for the fans and turned into a monetized experience. The pure greed turned my stomach but at least he wanted to win. Right? As the mistakes started to mount and stories of his bullying and marginalizing of people in the organization grew I started to think and soon realize as truth that Snyder was simply an incompetent and greedy owner who was exploiting the passion of the fans and squeezing every nickel he could get out of the fan base. He took the game day experience and ruined it in every imaginable way. He may love the Redskins but it’s apparent that what he really loves, is money. As I turned to the one place ExtremeSkins where I thought I might find other fans who also were noticing this and would understand and sympathize, I was met with a large contingent of people who aggressively defended Snyder and told me it wasn’t true. Snyder had learned his lesson. He was a young owner who was learning how to win. And the winning was just around the corner. So many people lampooned Dave McKenna’s article on Snyder. Guess what? He was right. We’ve heard all of the excuses. Snyder wants to win. At least he spends money. Blah blah blah. For God’s sake - you’ve had 20 years. When are you going to learn how to win?! It looks like Snyder would rather be the center of power on a losing team than a peripheral figure on a winning one. Now that it has became painfully obvious that Snyder is the root of the Redskins’ problems the majority of the Snyder apologists have left the site. I knew I was right then. I know I’m right now. Everything that has happened to this franchise — all the embarrassment, all the losing, all of the turmoil — is the responsibility of Snyder.
  9. I definitely think the NCAA is exploiting the players but do you really think there's a chance of a rival regulatory agency that will compete with the NCAA? (They're the 800 pound gorilla. I don't see that happening.)
  10. The law won't into effect until 2023. Expect a **** ton of law suits from The NCAA. They have already threatened to ban California schools from competing for NCAA championships.

  12. YES. And painfully obvious to anyone paying even the least amount of attention.

    When I gave up my season tickets I instantly felt $2,000 smarter. You current season ticket holders are some tough mutha ****ers!
