I've been down that wormhole too many times than I'd like to admit.

Comment 18 Apr 2014

tbf he could be talking about corrosion to the process itself.

Comment 17 Apr 2014

Also I would like to apologize for "Penguin's" in the opening sentence today. That's just inexcusable on my part.

Comment 17 Apr 2014

Actually, totally forgot. That's on me.

BTW, @MassiveCityFFC is a Marionaire. He does all the TiFo work for the Crew and stuff too. Awesome dude, great follow on Twitter as well.

Fair take, That Guy, but I would argue Jameis Winston has already received his fair share of "justice." 1) He never had to give up his DNA 2) His case was handled by a police officer who requested FSU football detail multiple times. 3) He was treated with kid gloves through the entire process because of his ability to throw a football.

I don't know how you could read the NYT article and feel any sort of sympathy for anybody involved. Are you familiar with how most sexual assaults go down? I don't need a conviction to know what happened here. I'm not going to read something like the NYT's piece and think anybody involved (other than the victim) deserves any sort of leniency.

Re-read the piece again and then go watch the Meggs chuckle fest press conference and tell me it doesn't make you sick.

how does players getting actual money change the game you watch on saturdays. idgi.

Comment 15 Apr 2014

This argument doesn't hold water. Why pay any employee then if their business is the one with value?

Comment 15 Apr 2014

I am all for students banding together to bargain a fairer deal/more medical protection, but I don't recall using the word "unionization" in today's post. Also, I don't think "nonstop" means what you think it means.

Comment 15 Apr 2014

I still don't understand what would change about the sport if somebody like Braxton Miller made a paltry sum (in high-level athletics) like $150,000 a year. Other than, you know, a young adult getting the market value for his services.

Comment 15 Apr 2014

I didn't say other people were claiming change wasn't coming. It was more to the point "you best get aboard this train."

Comment 15 Apr 2014

Off-season, bud. Considering this is THE pertinent debate this summer that could shape the future of the sport... it's going to get covered from both sides. (See Michael Bennett's anti-unionization thoughts I plugged a week ago or so.) 

I don't sermonize on the issue anymore, but whatever. This stuff will be posted because it's news, and news is sparse in this time of year.
