  1. Well I DID say "stay tuned" lol... Some tweets apparently during the game:

    2019 Redskins Training Camp/Preseason Thread

    Guice with the DLinemen...
  3. Wij (We) Ok, this movie is just flat-out....(shaking my head)...It's....jeebus. Bizarre, unsettling, weird, dark, tries too hard, I dunno lol...it's about a group of high school teens in Finland or Holland or Amsterdam--somewhere like that--who decide to just drop all inhibitions for the summer out of boredom, I guess, and spend time wandering around and hanging out at this old shack in the middle of nowhere and running around naked and having the most casual sex possible and not caring about ****. But then they start thinking about ways to make money, and then things start getting darker and darker, and then everything spirals out of control, and some horrific crap happens. The story of what happens is told from the perspective of four different teens involved, so you see additional info each time the movie revisits certain events. TONS of nudity--I couldn't post the original movie poster lol...and the trailer is even NSFW. I'm still not sure what I think about it.

    Photography

    More great stuff...and really like those Art Wolfe photos, especially the hippo surrounded by flamingos. Your story about the one photo being 2 summers in the making is the type of thing that really draws me to photography, but I've never done anything like that (take numerous photos of a place I know I want to photograph in order to get the best result). With the two photos I posted earlier that I took, it was just the opposite lol...I was in Ohio and couldn't get an Uber or a taxi back to my hotel--no uber drivers in the area and a taxi was a 3-hour wait. So like the schmuck I am I decided to walk the 7 miles back to the hotel thinking it was no big thing. But walking the route my GPS gave me had me walking on grass 90% of the time because there were no sidewalks, and almost all of it was on a one-lane back road surrounded by trees, the occasional house off in the distance, and a lot of emptiness (and the occasional cow lol). About 30 minutes into the walk I said **** it, and figured if I have to walk I might as well take some photos while I do to pass the time. Those were probably the two best I took, but they were on my iPhone and not my Canon.

    PRESEASON GAMEDAY THREAD: REDSKINS VS. FALCONS

    Yeah but that whole sales pitch was planned and scheduled, regardless of whether or not they had anything to say about the team. Should have done it at halftime, if at all.

    PRESEASON GAMEDAY THREAD: REDSKINS VS. FALCONS

    Because we're watching the game, not a sales pitch. They occasionally broke through the Amway speech to tell us what occurred...plus, the talk was canned and staged as hell. It's bad enough hearing homerific announcers get half the **** they talk about wrong, but making us sit through their sales pitch like it's a timeshare in Florida before we can get back to fully watching the game is irritating as hell. And I would imagine a lot of Falcons fans felt the same... I remember that MNF game against the Cowboys where they did an interview with Jerruh Jones, cutting to his ugly mug and taking focus away from the game...and only went back to the game when Romo was injured. During the interview, Cowboys fans were irritated as hell on their board. Fans tend not to like their football-viewing experience interrupted by things not related to what's happening on the field.

    That doesn't make the 30 minutes of incessant twaddle about how they did it any better lol...

    Redskins receiving corp is beginning to shape up

    Freudian slip? lol...I mean, our WRs aren't that great, but geez.

    0-5 Start, Tell Me It Can't Happen, Please....

    Well, one of the reasons you could say the Cards looked bad was because our defense looked good. It might not be accurate, but you could say it lol...

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Yeah, when I was looking through Shanny's drafts I reached the same conclusion lol....it was like 5 future Ring of Fame members (I'm counting Cousins for the record lol) and a bunch of dreck. 2014-2017 (I'm calling this pre-Kyle, even though he was a scout) picked up some definite wins (Moses, Scherff, Ioannidis...all trench players, interestingly)...and since it's too early to know about any of the 2019 drafted players, just going over 2017-2018 I would describe it as maybe the best back to back drafts in Snyder's tenure as owner. Hoping i will be saying back to back to back drafts this time next year.

    0-5 Start, Tell Me It Can't Happen, Please....

    Last year, yep....were up 21-0 at the half and won 24-6.
  12. Gonna respond to this sentence because it speaks to something I really don't like, especially in sports media (pretty much agreed with everything else, by the way lol)... The idea that you will get positive coverage because the media members like you irritates the living **** out of me. As a reader, I don't want what the writer feels about a person to carry over into the story about that person. Galdi kept saying that the local media's dislike of Bruce Allen was dictating how they were covering the whole Scot M debacle--Russell more or less backed up that viewpoint as well...and apparently how much they did like Scot M played a large role as well. It shouldn't have. I don't want Cooley blowing sunshine up our asses because Bruce goes golfing with him or whatever, and I don't want Russell harping on negative speculation because Bruce refused to give local reporters any comments or even his contact number while simultaneously holding interviews with national sports reporters. None of that should matter in my eyes. It's the same mentality that leads to players who are worthy of the Hall of Fame to be kept out because NFL writers (who vote on HOF membership) got a lot of great quotes from a player on the team he was covering and almost no quotes from a player on a rival team. It's the same mentality that could make some media members run as fast as possible with a negative story from a source about someone they don't like while holding back on a negative story from a source about someone they DO like. For example, if Scot M was a source for several local beat writers while he was here and actually enjoyed passing along info, then they're gonna make sure that relationship remains intact. So they're gonna be more likely to keep certain things under wraps to make sure they are in good standing with him (or any source in that situation). I wouldn't want that to be a guiding principle as to what to report and when to remain quiet. I know that in reality that happens all the time and in all areas of news, not just sports and not just the Redskins.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    The 2017 and 2018 draft seems to have pulled in a lot of legit contributors, especially in the later rounds. Add to it Fuller and Ioannidis from 2016 are both starters (although not both for the Skins, unfortunately). I still remember the absolute dearth of late-round contributors from the Gibbs and Vinny years.

    Geez...great photo! Was it Santorini?...I've posted some of my photos from there in the past. Might be one of the most photogenic places on earth. ...I should have read one more post before responding lol...
