tl, dr

Maybe "Don't bore us, get to the chorus" would've been better?

"Sorry, had to say it.  Some posters get the point across in a paragraph.  And then some don't."

Maybe you missed Charles' follow up to M Man's response? Sounds like you're responding to some perceived slight that was not contained in Charles' take.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with saying tl, dr, depending on the context. It CAN be rude, as you said, but can also be a legit request that the poster try being more concise. In Charles case, I agree with him, M Man's post rambled and needed to be more to the point. Granted, it's an art to be able to say what you need to say in a brief manner. Some have that ability, other's do not.

It should also be noted that M Man's response was equally dismissive and rude.

Wow, this was WAY more assholish than Charles posting "tl, dr". And for the record, I'm only referring to the first paragraph, because I had no interest in reading the last 2 1/2.

He did have some success at Vanderbilt, no doubt, but as has been pointed out before, name a signature win. He did manage to recruit well and beat teams that Vanderbilt was on equal footing with, but other than a win over Georgia (Georgia, mind you, NOT Bama, LSU or SC), where are the wins over teams no one thought they could or should beat?

Again, I'm not doubting the guy's abilities, I'm just very much in the "let's see what he can do over the next 2 years" camp.

Man, Cie Grant timed that blitz PERFECTLY! Whenever this comes around, I watch it at least a dozen times!

I remember when Tressel had recruited him and got his commitment. He told the story of breaking his arm, I believe it was in the US Army All-American game. He had already been studying medical journals, so when he knew he had broken his arm, he rolled on it using a technique he had read about, to try and set the bone back in place. I knew then that this guy was smart AND tough, and was going to do great things at OSU.

Meatchicken is 1-5 against Little Bro over their past 6. We're 4-2, including a 38-7 and a 45-7 pasting. I think your come back was just fine.

I eat Guacho's tacos every Friday (I know, Taco Friday doesn't have the same ring to it, but...), and have never had anything but a delicious $5-6 lunch. $1.50 tacos al pastor, $2.00 fish tacos, they also have steak, shrimp, chicken and chorizo.

I think I'm gonna need to go today, I won't be able to stop thinking about them.

Comment 22 Jul 2014

I agree that the spread is too much. 7 pts seems about right to me, because Oregon's playing at home and MSU travels across several time zones. But as others have already pointed out, Sparty's style is kryptonite to Oregon's super-charged offense. AND, on the other side of the ball, MSU is very likely to be able to run and control the ball against the Ducks' D. If I were a gambler, I'd take Sparty and the 13 pts.

Of course, if I did actually place the bet, then Oregon would win by 20. Which is why I'm not a gambler.

Wow, you couldn't have confirmed my comment any better. Nicely done.

I believe he's talking about the competition for the OTHER safety spot, opposite Powell, and who will end up as the 5th defensive back.
