  1. Watched the first episode of The Mandalorian on Disney+ Tuesday night, I thought it was pretty good. Had the Star Wars feel with more grit. I'm curious to see how it develops over time.

    The Gun Control Debate Thread - Say hello to my little thread

    At first I was surprised the Supreme Court allowed the lawsuit to continue, since there are federal laws in place that protect gun manufacturers from lawsuits when their guns are used in crimes. But after reading this article on NPR's website (see below link) it makes sense why they allowed it. Evidently there is an exception that allows lawsuits against gun makers/sellers if they knowingly violate federal or state laws on how a gun is sold or marketed. Though, I wonder how this will play out in court. The shooter had a past history of mental illness and access to the guns only because the mother was a gun owner. Not passing the buck to mental illness, just pointing out that due to all the mental health issues the shooter had (and it was multiple issues) I wonder if they will be able to prove that the marketing of the assault rifle by Remington actually influenced the shooter to move forward in mass murder.

    The theme park remains Universal's property based on their contract with Fox. Same with Disney not being able to do anything with the Fantastic Four or X-Men at Disney parks because of the contract Marvel had with Universal Studios. Basically, Disney is continuing to honor any contracts that Universal had in place with Fox and Marvel prior to Disney acquiring the companies.

    They own Fox, so yes. And they own 60% of Hulu too and have the controlling shares.

    Gonna assume that he's referring to the streaming content they launched with, specifically the new Star Wars series The Mandalorian. Disney Plus just dropped today. I've signed up, gonna watch the new SW series with the kiddo later tonight.

    Why are we this bad on the field?

    Our defensive coordinator is clown shoes and had no business retaining his job after last season. DJ called him out last year said they didn't practice hard and the play calling was crap. We get a zone CB in Josh Norman and play him in man to man coverage way too much, even though it's obvious that he has lost a step and sucks in man coverage. This was something that was known as he would get burned in man coverage when he was with the Panthers. Our offensive play calling since McVay left has been utter ****. Undisciplined football resulting in way to many penalties, which puts us behind in field position on what seems every drive. Predictable play calling. Not utilizing play action when the running game does get moving, so many missed opportunities. Dumb play calls on third downs, like if it's 3rd and 8, throwing a ****ing screen pass or another play where the receiver is out 6 yards (2 yards shy of the first down marker) and hoping he will get enough YAC to move the chains. You know, instead of having them run a route that puts them past the first down marker to begin with. Zero ability to make proper half time adjustments, like in forever. FO/owner drafting QBs they want and not what fits what the coach wants/scheme. RGIII under Shanny, now Haskins under Jay/Bill. Etc. etc. etc......

    Just listened to it, and some random person on twitter claiming this makes it even more unbelievable imo.

    Redskins Fan Revolt Thread

    Snyder would have to want to sell the team. He's had no problem the past 2 decades of ruining the franchise and not getting people wanting to coach here. I don't see him selling the team, especially since it's value is still so high. And Bezos has ties to Seattle anyhow, buying the Seahawks if they go on the market makes more sense than Dan agreeing to sell the Redskins to him.

    Redskins Fan Revolt Thread

    He's not going to sell the team to Bezos. He's friends with Dan and Jerry Jones and is building an Amazon hub/plant in the area and Jones has stated he would like to see him be an owner. His chance would be if the Seahawks get put up for sale after the season. I think that he might try to help Dan out with a new stadium, which would render Bruce useless, and hopefully lead to him being fired. That's probably the only good thing that will come out of this.

    He said he wanted guaranteed money and asked the team for that. Team said no. It's absolutely about the money. I'm sorry TW had cancer and came close to losing his life. But that doesn't mean that the team should do what he asks and restructure his contract or give him an extension or trade him to a team, etc. You don't find it disgusting that he appears to have used that cancer scare to force the team to trade him because they didn't give into his demands? I find it very disturbing to be honest.

    But it's not about the money............And then he says if they just traded him that he would have kept his mouth shut about it all............ TW is all over the place and imo, making himself look worse. He dug himself into this hole and his attempts to continue to talk is just making it deeper.

    I'd say that accusations of malpractice by the teams medical staff and painting the picture that you almost lost your life due to the teams medical staff mishandling your medical situation is pretty serious. And while he didn't bad mouth anyone during the ordeal, those accusations were damaging enough. Enough for the Redskins to request a independent review to clear their names of any wrong doing, which he shut down immediately, then continued to accuse the team of trying to make him look bad. That's how he "drug the team through the mud", so to speak. I am 100% fine with TW asking to redo his contract, get an extension, etc. And the team said no. But he did sign a contract where there was no guaranteed money at the end of it, so there is that. Alex Smith's situation has nothing to do with TW's situation, completely different. Alex got a severe injury in an actual game and wants to play again, not sure that makes him greedy. TW wanted more money and when he didn't get it, held out and demanded a trade (basically). Again, I'm fine for him or his agent asking for guaranteed money (via extension or contract restructure). Given TW has had two strikes with suspensions for substance abuse, and being injured in some capacity missing games consistently since 2013 (last season he played in all 16 games), and being 31 years old, it's easy to see why they wouldn't restructure said contract or offer him an extension. I just can't feel sorry for TW (or any player for that matter) that has made roughly $95 million dollars total at this point in their career. There is no benefit for TW to agree for the independent review because he knows the Redskins would be cleared of any wrong doing and it would hurt his trade value and future earnings. That is the most logical and obvious reason for requesting the NFLPA to not review his medical records on the handling of his growth. I honestly believe there is no way the team requests the review if they thought there was any chance of being found guilty of any wrong doing and that TW knows that too and would be found guilty of lying. So you're blaming the team for this entire mess because they did not give into his request to restructure/extend TW's contract? Cause, let's just give in to every player that wants their contract restructured so they don't fabricate [insert reason here] because they are upset about not having guaranteed money and decide to hold out. That sets horrible precedents. Again, I'd have been fine with trading TW right after his hold out started and setting the team up in future drafts, that's the only thing the team did wrong imo, but again, I understand them taking a firm stance, considering the accusations of malpractice from TW. How would that have looked if they traded him? All other reasons aside (in regards to this **** show of a team), would you want to play somewhere where it appeared that the team's medical staff completely botched a cancer scare? They trade him after accusations like that, it gives the appearance of admitting guilt and wrong doing and that they traded him to shut him up. Nobody wants Bruce out more than I do, but given the path that TW chose to take this, but I can understand taking the firm stance and trying to clear the medical staffs name instead of giving in. It would be different if TW just came right out and said it was about the non-guaranteed money on his contract and he wanted a restructure/extension or to be traded to another team and that he's holding out until one of those three things is done. But he didn't do that did he? And here we are.

    In the beginning, I gave TW the benefit of the doubt, but still had speculation that there was more to the story than what was being reported. Mainly based on the timing of this news coming out (right before training camp). And we only had unnamed sources, friends that talked to TW, etc. to go by and form an opinion. With it not being about the money, but the handling of the growth by the teams medical staff. Then he reports to the team and does an interview dragging the team through the mud on how they mishandled everything and we learned that it extremely serious and he might have lost his life. Which is some real scary **** and thankfully it was caught and treated and he's hopefully going to live a long healthy life for many years to come. But, back to his interviews/comments to the media, etc., he says that he did talk to Bruce about his contract situation and wanted guaranteed money, etc and was turned down. That happened (if I'm wrong - correct me) prior to him holding out, which seems very suspect to me that "it's not about the money". Cancer is a serious thing and I've lost loved ones to it over the years, but it appears to me that he was using his scare to hide behind wanting more money or a trade (so he could get a renegotiated contract elsewhere). He thought that would be something even the Redskins/Bruce would cave on as they legally couldn't reveal/dispute publicly any of his claims of wrong doing with how the medical staff handled his growth. The Redskins didn't give in to his demands and when TW piled in on in interviews, they immediately requested an independent review of his medical records to clear their names of any wrong doing. TW then asked the NFLPA to not do a review because he knew the Redskins would be cleared of any wrong doing. I think using something as serious as cancer as a tool to get money or traded is ****ing pathetic. And that is what it appears like TW did, and I lost all respect for him for that. While I would have been fine with Bruce trading him earlier on and getting a good haul in draft picks, I also get him standing firm and not giving in after TW created this mess of a situation. Because I can understand from the FO perspective that had they traded TW right after it started, it would be admitting wrong doing and setting a bad precedent for other players to do the same.

    Dream scenario

    Dream scenario - Dan sells the team or loses it somehow and we get a new owner. Since that won't happen............Dan holds a press conference admitting that he has screwed up and it starts at the top with him and the FO and that he failed the fans and wants to make it right and bring the franchise back to what it used to be. Then he cleans house in the front office and hires competent replacements with very few or no ties to the organization (VP/Pres, GM, etc.). And he lets the GM hire the head coach. And the head coach works with the GM and hire the O and D coordinators, skill position coaches, etc. The GM works with the head coach for the drafts/FA, etc. Dan signs the checks and stops interfering in football related maters that he knows nothing about. Surround himself with good football minded people and let them do all the work.
