  1. I think you pretty well have the definition down, except i would substitute the phrase "immigration in accordance with applicable laws" in place of "pro immigration" due to.the current climate and out of respect for friends who came to this country after jumping through the required legal hoops. I would also add "self reliance," "charity not welfare," and "common sense morality" to the list.

    Helping Haynesworth

    I wouldn't. I'd give it to someone else who is more deserving, like a child or a mother or father. As it stands, the man is a piece of **** (say least as of a shout 2012). The fact that he's dying does not change that. However, if he makes it out of this alive perhaps the fact that he almost died but was somehow saved will change that. Sometimes it takes an experience like this to set a man on the right path. But what do I know about it.....
  3. Is their a conservative voice in any of these threads? Or are the conservatives in these threads also anti-Trump? If so, at least there is a consensus on something.
  4. A better question might be "why is workplace harassment a criminal offense and not a civil wrong compensable through a court ordered monetary award?"

    Redskins' what ifs. . .

    There robably wasn't enough liquidity in his estate to pay for soecific bequests to charity or others, so assets had to be liquidated which included his interest in the team. He also probably believed that John had enough assets to purchase the team along with his portion of the estate, but that obviously was not the case because he could not outbid Snyder's group.

    Redskins' what ifs. . .

    I read that too. He was chirping about coming back once "healed" but the Redskins told him he was done there and should retire. I also heard that he had a clause in his broadcasting contract for the first couple years after his retirement where he would be allowed to return to the field if he wanted. Some sort of buyout/ early termination formula or something. I saw him compete in some sort of NFL quarterback legends challenge thing in the early 90s and he seemed t o be moving around ok. But I also read that he had to work out an insurance policy a couple years after the injury and couldn't hack it at that point

    Redskins' what ifs. . .

    In the short term, I think the team would not have gone on that veteran spending spree, but hopefully would have kept Brad Johnson. The team performs poorly in 1999 (no playoffs) and 2000, and Norv is fired. Marty comes is hired in 2001, and (John Cooke) gives him the control he wants. Marty takes the the team to multiple playoff appearances through 2006 but no super bowls. Stephen Davis becomes the team's all time leading rusher. Lavar Arrington become a full fledged star and retires in 2011 with hall of fame credentials. Joe Gibbs is hired by the Falcons in 2004 but leaves coaching again after the 2005 season. Brad Johnson stick around until 2006 while serving as back up to . . . Drew Brees, whom the Redskins sign as a free agent in 2006. Brees and Marty team up for a single season, after which Marty decides he's simply too rigid to coach in the modern era and hands off the reins to his son, Kurt. Kurt hired a skilled offensive coordinator, while running the defense. The team retains Charley Casserly as GM during this time period, which leads to good (but not great) drafts, more researched free agent signings, and an overall more positive team atmosphere due to his efforts and the continuity established by John Cooke. ST is not murdered in 2008 because the Redskins were not bad enough in 2003 to merit a high draft pick and did not pick him, hence he was not injured at that point and would have no reason to have been in town at his residence at that time. Instead he is selected by the Browns 5th overall, and his old coach Butch Davis comes in halfway through the season. Powered by a defense led by Taylor, the Browns go on to 10 playoff appearances in 12 years, including 3 super bowl victories.

    So the bigger question is what if the team hadn't tried to fit the square pegs into the round holes. Not only Orakpo but also Kerrigan. Kerrigan seems to have done better but Orakpo should have never dropped back into coverage. I think both would gave been better with their hand in the dirt.

    I agree. But it probably wouldn't have changed the fortunes of the franchise much. it wasn't one of those crossroads type of things.

    Riggins was close to done. But even after the season ended he still wanted to come back. Joe was not having a good year (stats were skewed by a 5 int performance against the bears) but he was a young 36. He had only been a starter for 8 years, so it wasn't like he had a lot of wear and tear. He easily could have played another couple years.

    Redskins' what ifs. . .

    So the theme here is to change a point in redskins history by alter g something, then say what could have happened. What if... Joe Theismann had not broken his leg against the Giants and his career had died a natural death? In my view, the Redskins still don't make the Playoffs in 1985. Joe was having a bad year. I think he would have rebounded in 1986 and taken the team deep into the playoffs as Schroeder watched and learned. Same thing for 1987. Maybe a super bowl, he was still probably better at age 38 than Schroeder, just based on experience and presence. However, because Joe was never injured, the Redskins never pick up Doug Williams so we get none of the feel good historical impact of Super Bowl 22. A more mature Schroeder take over mid way through 1988 and guides the veteran team through 1996 winning a super bowl in the process along with 2 or 3 more playoff appearances. The presence of Schroeder keeps Monk a redskin for life, so he retires a year earlier but much more content. Clark sticks around through 1996 too. The team does not draft Mark Rypien in 1986, and he never gets a real chance because the dreadful Seahawks of the late 80s/early 90s take him instead. Riggo stretches his career through 1986 as a short yardage specialist, while the load on George Rogers is eased allowing him to stick around through 1988 until his injured foot gives way. Heath Shuler is someone else's flop. Gus Frerotte never gets a shot. The team has more considerable success through the 90s, so Gibbs sticks around through 2000 to steady the team through Cooke's death. Before he dies, Gibbs and Cooke have a heart to heart where Gibbs tells him that his son John would make an excellent owner, so JKC restructures his estate to ensure that sufficient assets are provided to John so he can keep the team. And Snyder ends up staying in software.
