  • SPORTS MOMENT: Sad to say, 8th grade year. Last minute red zone stand versus hated rival and I make a tackle at the three-yard line to save the game. Long gap... then I ran a marathon when I was 30. Not exactly Highlight Express.

It's tough to pull those kids out of Western PA. Pitt could be 4-0 after tomorrow, too, and actually looked good as hell vs. Boston College, who subsequently thrashed USC.

Gourmet hot dog doubters? Please google Hot Doug's in Chicago.

Interesting debate: is spanking effective?

Not a debate at all: is a 220 lb. professional football player beating his son around with a tree branch as he stuffs leaves in his mouth to muffle the screams child abuse?

Furthermore, the bogeyman media that so many love to decry, whether it be in the televising of the fire hoses used on civil rights marchers that helped to trigger the changes in the 1960s, or the video of Ray Rice knocking his girlfriend out, often actually makes people confront uncomfortable truths about larger society and, hopefully, remedy them.

You're being modest and understated in your appraisal. I don't think that Brax will get drafted as a QB in the NFL; his detractors were many even before re-injuring his shoulder.

Not sure either, but suspect that it's in the wake of Adrian Peterson babysitting yet another one of his four-year olds who are not twins.

Comment 15 Sep 2014

I think Carter was suggesting that the league is out of magic bullets when it comes to getting their players to follow any type of a moral code, save for taking them off the field. It seems to be the only thing that brings about a change.

Teacher myself and you're right about discipline. Beating your kid, though, is less about discipline and teaching them a lesson than it is about power.

Comment 15 Sep 2014

He was, though I suspect that he knew that he had better probably tuck his comment back in is jacket pocket after seeing how impassioned Carter was and, more importantly, how Tom Jackson was reacting. Jackson looked, to me, like he was relieved that he didn't have to listen to Keyshawn, Ray Lewis, and caveman Ditka spin another "I turned out OK" tale for the viewers. He looked as pissed as Carter at the whole fucking mess.

No, this isn't the pussification of America that so many here decry. Every legitimate scientific study on the matter shows that, at best, this kind of discipline has no positive effect, and that often times, it has a profoundly negative effect. 

Amen.

The EzE hate and Rod Smith love are equally tiresome. Elliott averaged over nine yards a carry yesterday and has proven through consistent positive yardage touches that he is probably our best true RB. Samuel, obviously, has athletic ability that is truly special. The reason Rod Smith is not getting more carries is that the carries he is getting are not more productive.

I respect your right to your opinion that Rod Smith is so damned good that his talent befuddles all of our coaches into not playing him, but why go after Elliott?

Comment 14 Sep 2014

Yep. I think we'll know a lot more about this team at about 8 PM that night.

Comment 14 Sep 2014

I think one thing we have to accept is that Damien is a UK fan, whether he ends up attending there or not. We've certainly heard the "he grew up a Buckeye fan" bit about Ohio kids who've ended up in other uniforms too many times to count.

I want to be optimistic, but it sure seems like he's all about his state team.

Not sure, but I think this is a Merle Haggard song.
