  1. That'd be pretty tough considering the White Stripes released that song in 2003 on the album Elephant.
  2. All due respect, I don't give a **** about what overpaid Josh Norman thinks. Guy has been here for 3 seasons and wants to criticize people who've been slowly beaten by this organization for approaching 30 years. Spare me. Skins fans so whiny asking for a properly run organization that doesn't have humiliation and embarrassment oozing out of the walls on the regular. It is not just about losing. Nobody is leaving because we haven't gone on another 3 titles in 9 years run. If you're trying to argue the Chiefs playoff losses = we're entitled because we won a championship 27 years ago that ignores the fact that the Chiefs have been an exponentially superior organization for the past 27 years. If the Redskins were even just like the Bills, the narrative would be completely different.
  3. Fickle is jumping off the train in 2000 less than a decade after 3 titles. Leaving after 20 years of trash and outright professional embarrassment is not. It's not the losing, it's how they got about everything in this organization...coupled with sucking. I wouldn't become a fan of another team I agree, but I support anyone who says screw this and finds something better in their lives.
  4. And then inevitably becoming good for a cycle as well, like every single team in the league except for this trash and the Browns, who are about to take off with a great 2nd year QB and loads of young talent.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    1. You're so insanely incorrect I don't know where to begin. 2. The Washington Post know more about what goes on at Redskins Park than anyone on this message board, who has ZERO access to the hallways regularly. 3. They have made zero attempt to do it the right way - they sort've tried once and got mad at McCloughan for getting credit and then fired him in the most humiliating way. I honestly CANNOT believe any fan actually thinks the media is doing this team wrong. It is truthfully unfathomable. The only answer is people who actually have nothing in their lives except the Redskins and if that's the case, I mean this seriously with no sarcasm because people go through hard times, I am sorry. New team can be the Washington Braves. That was the original name when they moved from Boston.
  6. A 3 game skid was the longest of the season. We take this team for granted. Back in the win column.

    Per TMZ: Reuben Foster Cleared of Charges

    That 2-10% figure is specifically rape, sexual assault is more broad of a term. But your conclusion doesn't make sense. It is incredibly difficult to prove in a court of law in general, it's almost always he said she said situations, which makes it tough for even the best prosecutors to argue it wasn't just rough consensual sex beyond reasonable doubt. Prosecutors will also often decline to file charges from reports because they have limited resources and won't bother on "he said, she said". There are also massive backlogs of rape kits across the U.S. because law enforcement only has so many resources. Then there's the fact that only 35% of sexual assaults are reported to the police at all according to the Justice Bureau. So there is really little evidence to suggest that women are going to the police en masse in hopes of putting men in jail falsely for this crime. There is evidence that it does happen in rare cases relative to the amount of substantiated claims. The FBI says only about 8% of rape claims are unfounded after investigation. This is getting off topic though because Foster was not accused of rape so I will leave it at that.

    Domestic violence is a tricky one because if we want women to feel comfortable coming to the police, we cannot ask them to do so in the face of having every single person they interview doubt them and desperately look for holes. It's humiliating, scary and challenging enough. Yes, some women lie. I don't think there is a shred of evidence beyond anecdotes that that exceeds the amount of women who are telling the truth. Am I arguing for everyone accused to face consequences off the bat without proper investigation, absolutely not. Of course not. But I also am not going to assume every accuser is a lying gold digger, which it seems a lot of men still do in 2018 because of the press that relatively isolated cases get where women lie purposefully. And that leaves me in between in a random void where there is no good answer, which is often the case in life. It's basically the only crime where this conundrum exists.

    I'm sorry that happened to you but what are we going to do, count stories like this against the amount of stories of women who are legitimately abused and see how we should proceed?

    So OJ didn't do it then?

    It's better for the organization's reputation but some people need to remember lack of evidence doesn't mean it didn't happen (and I'm not saying that's the case here, just in general), and in the case of his last situation when the victim recanted, the police in that case released a statement noting that this happens a lot in domestic violence cases even when the evidence is there. Victims fall into learned helplessness and are often still in love with their abuser and will go as far as to say they lied fore myriad reasons. It's very sad for anyone who has actually seen this with someone they know. So this doesn't mean Foster is some good guy all of a sudden.
  12. Well, she's a columnist so her stories can have more personal opinion in them than a beat reporter. Was there anything factually incorrect in her defense of Lance Armstrong? If she develops an opinion and backs it up with factual data and accurate quotes, there's nothing wrong with that. Just like all the other people who vilify Lance can do the same thing and the reader can draw their own conclusion. I don't think that's completely why she defends him, I think there is something to be said for how much heat he got for blood doping, whereas if he was caught poisoning other riders, I doubt she would be like "oh well, he meant well." In the case of the Redskins, I would argue her opinion is based on having much more access to NFL executives than anyone on this message board will ever have. For example, if a bunch of people she interviewed unexpectedly told her, actually Dan isn't that bad and here's why, she'd probably include that context. But of course, those people don't exist except for his lackeys. If she was a beat reporter, it's a completely different story. A beat reporter simply reports what happened and who said what and who is injured etc. A columnist's job is to have a take, and Sally is certainly more credible than the TV columnists we see yelling at each other.
  13. Why is Jenkins terrible? Because she frequently writes negative stories about a bottom-dwelling organization?
  14. I got your point. I'm saying it makes no sense. That would make sense if we were the Patriots and after 17 years of excellence we went 9-7 and had to read a bunch of lame clickbait about how Brady is done. These are not stories of convenience, we're in the midst of nearly 30 years of mediocrity and embarrassment. There are no hot takes, just massive sample sizes of losing and professional disgraces off the field. You're basically asking, would this be a story on ESPN if we had gone 9-7 after 27 years of futility? Uh, yes. Yes. Yes. Yes.
