Agreed and stated it myself on my post. As much as I love tress, it was ultimately him who decided to lie. And if anyone thinks that tp was all of a sudden the ring leader and this stuff just started because of him them I got some land to sell them. It most surely was happening before and not only at TOSU.
I don't know if he was unapologetic or just keeping his mouth shut. I think he very well could have said thing that may or may nor have hurt people. If the kid was really out for something he could have did a Ray Small on Osu but didn't. To be honest, I think it showed great maturity for him to stay quiet the way he did in this day and age.
I was never really mad at the kids for what happened. They are kids and be it as it may it was their personal property and free to do what they want IMHO. I think I was more mad at Tressell for lying than anything. It just made things exponentially worse than it really could have been. I am in mo way judging jt as I loved everything about him except for his damn offenses with the exception of 06. I do believe he had the best interest of the kids in mind.
Let him come back, I think for the most part people have gotten past it and it always helps to have UFM carrying on the great tradition of Osu football.
If they can address tackling I think the D will be fine. IMHO it just seemed they were interested in delivering the big blow or even worse a lot of arm tackling attempt. I am no expert but watched enough football to know. I really feel better about the new D and after some potential growing pains early on I think the d will be back.
That's a hell of a list and I remember watching them all play. Sad to say someone had to be left out but not sure about Galloway being left off the list or Holmes for that matter. Just goes to show what a great core of receivers TOSU had over the years.
Joey needs some love here I agree. He prob had a better NFL career than all of those named with the exception of CC.
Yeah, that one never gets old kept the season going...I think Jenkins 4 and 14 was the ultimate...I had already resigned the game as a loss...thank God I have this bad habit of watching until it's over (not over til it's over)...lol
I read some of that article on the rape. I was particularly pissed about the sheriffs daughter who damn near had the same thing happen to here only for her to drop out and I assume counseling for depression. So sad, this girl had to leave the school of her dreams. Very long article but makes one think a lot of dirty deals going on there amongst other places.
Ill be there....what are some good places to eat around there? I want to hang out and enjoy the whole thing and I've only been there one other time and had to leave right after the game in the fall of 2012. Any input or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Uh, why would anyone down vote here? Some people on here really make me wonder. What about his statement deserves a down vote? Good God!
Heh, I am offended by warriors....let's start a petition to change the site (Sans sarcasm for all you literal people in the audience).
Just so we know that there is more to the rape definition here is a portion of it source will be sited:
an act of plunder, violent seizure, or abuse; despoliation; violation: the rape of the countryside.
Now to say he was using it reference to a sexual act is ludicrous. I accept your comment on rape victims and I for one am totally on board with victims of the rape act and feel very sad that anyone would EVER have to experience something like that. That being said your PC side is getting annoying.
You agree but he shouldn't say things? Heh
No he's not
But I think you are smart enough to know he didn't use the word in the context you would like for the readers to believe according to the quote you posted. To equate the actual act of rape of either a woman/man to what he said is absolutely ridiculous. Your PC in your articles anymore are really irritating.
Good read Johnny, it sure seems Bert is always trying to find the easy way out all the time. I find it comical he has to find this solution to improving his team by trying to change the rule. I'll blow a freakin gasket if this rule passes. Can't stop hurry up offense, well you better find better personell (?) both in recruiting and coaching scheme like a lot of other coaches do. Lazy coaching tactics from this douche IMHO.
Well done as far as SAM goes, You kept personal opinions out of it and pretty much stuck to the story without chiming in you personal feelings. That's fari and balanced writing to me.
Now you throw the assumption I'm ignorant, thanks you have proven my point. I have said nothing on here aside from not agreeing to the "lifestyle" that I don't agree with
But people dont know me so don't call me intolerant or a bigot simply because I don't believe in the lifestyle and am not afraid to say it (not saying you were calling me that just a response to your questions). I have NEVER called someone a "Faggot" or "Queer" or whatever and if I heard someone who did I would put them in their place as THAT is the intolerance to.In my previous employment I worked with two openly gay men and got along quite well with them. I didn't treat them any different than any other person.
I got the hell out of the way with respect I gave them they wanted but yet keep getting thrown back on the tracks because I respectfully don't agree with it. BTW, I have been branded racist, homophobe, intolerant, bigot, etc simply because I disagree. I have always been respectful never dropped any derogatory name.
This is here because whether some like it or not, it's a pretty damn big story. Feel free to not discuss it.
Good way to lose some of your page views considering quite a few people come here to get away from everyday politcal/social issues.
I appreciate those who've said that they will welcome Sam regardless of the fact that they don't approve of his lifestyle. That is the definition of tolerance.
Evanston, I respectfully disagree. I don't agree with the lifestyle but yet called intolerant, bigot, etc when all I have said is I don't agree and nothing more on more than a few occasions in other chats. How is this tolerance?
I have gay family members to start with to be clear.
My question is and no one can seem to answer this is why do get called names for not believing the lifestyle is right? I've never called anyone a derogatory name because they are gay but I am not afraid to say I don't believe it's right. Why is my opinion not respected like they want respect? Because I don't agree with the lifestyle makes me a bigot or intolerant? Now if I am calling these people names or making derogatory slurs then I deserve but I never have said anything bad.
it goes both ways for respect and IMHO this shouldn't be on this site.
Btw, to compare this to race are two totally different issues.
