Unfortunately in today's society when there are problems that are across the board we tend to find one person to lump them on and pretend that solved the problem. Also, if you tend to disagree with these people or want to ask more questions they will tell you to shut up or be quiet about and not talk about it. You can see it in any thread where it comes up.

Well considering what most people have said that this has gone on for "years" and he was working to improve the situation I was asking if he improved but not quick enough or if they suprised him with the firing.

Also, and I mean this with all do respect; you are a condescending  prick.

99% of ads arent controlled by the the page you are looking at. Its based of YOUR browsing data usually. I remember a year or two ago people were complaining about scUM ads on this site. Well....quit looking at their boards haha.

If anything it helps the NCAA because they can say "Hey we arent forcing players to come here, they can make money elsewhere".

According to Dustin Fox, the Bath PD were asked to buff up security for a positive announcement. Apparently this is straight from the chief. I don't know anything for sure, but I do trust a police officer more than Sheridan. Its not in the chiefs best interest to piss off the people in his community.

I think we are in good shape. The fact that he sat down with Riley for an hour face to face and didn't get an agreement is a positive.

Complete Cleveland homer here.

Owner 1: Made stupid letter

Owner 2: Cut players to save on tax money while asking the Big 3 to cut salary to sacrifice (Mike Miller/Joel Anthony etc)

Only one of these poor decisions effect on court outcomes. Just something to think about....

Say what you want about UFC, however atleast in this sport the top fighters fight each other...alot. In boxing you have Mayweather duck Paquio for years as an example. The top fighters don't fight each other and you have about 3 fighters that people give a damn about.

Give me UFC any day of the week.

Losing Altidore killed us. We had a very limited attack. We are like a mid major team in the fact that we have some good pieces but a lack of high end depth. I think if we are at full strength we win. Dempsey also played with a broken nose most of the tourney and Jones was injured some as well.

2018 looks bright. Plus Yadlin(spelling?) went to Akron I believe. Good for him.

Its interesting hearing on the radio in Cleveland how often Timmy comes up. People seem to have come around that he was actually good but surrounded by terrible circumstances. Plus Ownership screwed up our team after the 2002(I believe..Hey Playoffs!!). Anyways, I hope he can walk now because our offense line was putrid.

You can't always go to school for free to play a kids game. Do you really think the chances are strong someone in their mid-late 20's finishes up their degree when they have to pay for it when it was previously free?

If people are offended(I am sure there are), then they can not watch the games, buy tickets, or give revenue to that company. If alot of people quit giving Mr Snyder their money, he will go broke or change the name.

Or we can have Uncle Govt. tell everyone what they can or can not do or say.

Which of those seems like a better idea?

Comment 10 Jun 2014

Blame the NFL for not hiring 18 yr old professionals. Quit trying to ruin amateur sports. There is a reason a lot of people like college overs pros. There is a sense of team/local/university pride similar to HS. Yea it maybe all in our mind but its there. 

Comment 07 Jun 2014

I am sure from the added TV revenue there can be a joint fund similar to some of the professional leagues where there is revenue sharing to cover this.

Comment 17 May 2014

If it wasn't an issue in the teams eyes why does the NFL have to force teams to participate? The only two teams that seem excited to do it are largely disfunctional (Jets and Bengals, although not as much lately). Do you see the Steelers, Patriots, 49'ers etc doing this? No. There is a reason.

I also think Sam is being a little selfish here. He's the first known gay man drafted. Now what are teams going to think when the second comes along? Oh great, here comes the circus. And for everyone saying he has a short time to make money; do you honestly think he will have a hard time finding a job in the media after football? Hes guarenteed a job for life after this.

Comment 16 May 2014

Generally speaking its kind of shitty to hide this type of thing. McCarron dropped in the draft to similar issues..oh and also being an asshole in private interviews(Allegedly). Of course when McCarron drops its not because people hates the gays its because NFL teams don't want to deal with fringe NFL talent who aren't 100% focused on making the team.

 

Edit: I also have a hard time believing teams didn't ask Sam about something like this. Hey youre kind of a big deal, any plans to do something about that after the draft kind of thing? I wonder if he was upfront to teams about that and dropped because of it.

Going by attendance Columbus would be doing us a favor to take the Indians so we don't have to hear the "A" word on Cleveland radio throughout the entire summer.

Comment 16 May 2014

Dumbfounded that someone with his size and speed and strength can't catch a freaking football.

 

P.S. Quit showboating after getting a 1st down when we're down 14.
