Lol.  Okay.  No intimidation there.  Is that what you do when you're innocent and the hgh from the shady lab was really for your wife?   I do see what you're saying, but come on.  That's total intimidation.  In the "I'm not guilty world" things are done with a letter from the lawyer's office.  In the "you better shut the f up world" they're done by sending two goons to the house.

And that's the million dollar question, isn't it?  All people know is that he changed his mind after the goons showed up at his parent's place.  Family was scared enough to call 911.

I think you're being serious, but just for the record; you are aware that he sent private investigators to intimidate the witness and the family of the witness?

Investigation...right.  Good one.  There would have been no investigation.  Let's be honest.  All any of us really know about Peyton Manning is about zero.  But let's be honest about this.  Take your athletic heroes off the pedestal and think rationally.  Remember we don't really know these guys.  We are given an image of them by the NFL and the NFL basically tells us what to believe about them.  Think about this rationally.  Million year old dude has neck surgery and returns to have a great couple of years in NFL without help of hgh?  I doubt it. NFL is a joke and until they come clean about PEDs as well as head injuries then they will remain a joke.  They are a money making corporation with a vested interest in making sure that they stay a money making corporation.

I have a few large canisters of this stuff around the house for when I go on vacation and when I go running or biking.  It's pretty much like what the video says and it's pretty cheap.

I agree with you 100%, but I don't agree that the testimony proves he knew jack crap.  If he knew, then for sure he should be gone.  But we don't know if he knew.  We just know that one person said that his co-worker told them that Schiano knew.  That's not enough for me.  That's why heresay is not admissible in court.  Show me the evidence.  At the same time, people need to stand up for what's right.  If you see someone abusing a child, then damn it, risk your job to save the kid.  WTF.  There are some things that are worth the risk of losing your job for.  There are also things that are worth risking your life for.  One of those is saving kids from abusers.  Are there any men left in this place?

Send michigan to the MAC and keep the rivalry game.  They pretty much play a MAC schedule and then they really could be the best in the conference academically.  Fits in well geographically.  Plus, I would love to see their privileged, arrogant alumni base go bat crazy with the butt hurt.  Relegated to the MAC for sucking.

Thanks so much for all the time you put into your answer.  That was a great read.  I appreciate the info on the army staffing and the way that transitioned into a nationalistic appeal.  I'm getting ready to read "The White War" and your answer gives me some good background info going into that.  Thanks again.  I really do appreciate your thoughtful response.

I'm an old guy.  Here's what happens.  Cavs up by 2 with 20 seconds left.  LeBron loses the handle with 15 left and turns over.  Thompson picks it up and takes two dribbles.  He passes left to Curry with 12 seconds.  Curry crosses the time line drives towards the three point line moves right, pulls back, shoots gliding left from 32 feet and drains it.  Saw this story before.  But maybe just maybe this is the year....but probably not.

Yeah...Drinking can be dangerous and binge drinking is even worse...but the profits...the profits.

Comment 08 Jun 2016

Yep, and when the player is down the opposing team will sometimes kick the ball out of bounds to stop play for the injured player.

Comment 06 Jun 2016

Yes, he is the O coordinator.  I don't think it's his ego.  LeBron runs the offense from a read react ISO scheme.  So he examines the D and runs the offense from that.  He's been quoted as saying that- I think as recently as April/May in the Plain Dealer.  That's not how you're going to defeat a team like GSW. Think how easy it is for GSW to disguise what they're doing.  Listen-the Cavs are running a jr high offense against the best team in the world, and it shows.  I commented earlier that the reason they fired Blatt is because the team refused to learn and operate his offense.  They wanted to do LeBron's read and react.  That's what you're getting now.  It's not going to get any better until they play offense like big boys.

Comment 06 Jun 2016

This is not a roster problem or a defense problem.  The Cavs are playing fine defense, and they have a good roster.  The problem is that they- LeBron- insist on running a read and react offense based off LeBron's ISO.  Same reason they fired Blatt- the players refused to run his offense which had been pretty successful, but required a lot more effort to perfect.  So, they fired Blatt and now they are full read and react.  LeBron will not come down with a plan to score.  He lets the other team dictate what they do.  This is fine for the regular season, but against the Warriors in the finals it's not going to work, because they can disguise their defense and they're pretty good at maintaining coverage after screens- they're not lazy.  Unless the Cavs decide to actually run an offense, then they will continue to get curb stomped into oblivion.  I don't think they can get back in it.  Maybe they'll come home and light it up from the three-point line like they did against Toronto, but that's unlikely.  It's driving me crazy, because they have so much talent along with the opportunity, but they just can't put it together schematically.  After last year's finals I thought for sure we would get our championship in Cleveland, but the coaching change magnified the offensive weaknesses that of last year.

My guess...Because Austin is awesome and it's in Texas which is well, pretty awesome.  Super culture there.  Many people find leaving Texas difficult.  But Atlanta has a lot going for it.  You'll enjoy it for sure.  Hope you find a place quickly and love the new position.
