J.T.B. will have a better Pro career, barring he gets injured before getting there, than Brax and Pryor COMBINED. 

J.T.B. is a better passer than both, and I don't mean "at this stage in his career," I mean RIGHT NOW.

I'll even go this far... "at this stage in his career" J.T.B. is a better passer than T. Smith was. 

Please note:  Never did I say QB.  That is still to be determined.

UM, like Rome, was destroyed from within and over a 10 year period, though.

the torrent of shit pouring out of the gaping dog's anus that is Ann Arbor

That should be used as the opener for ANY update regarding UM.

Buck-I-Guy is really a Michigan fan parading as an OSU fan in an attempt to bring the program down... why can't you all see this!?

That's what she called herself, who am I to argue with her about it?

I had a midget stripper for my 30th!  I was amazed to see I was taller than an adult...

Comment 22 Sep 2014

There was a quote from CSKA Moscow GM Sergei Federov (ya, former Wing and Jacket) stating he never offered a contract despite a TSN report and Overhardt claims multiple offers from several leagues overseas.

Per Porty, latest offer was 2 yrs 4.7 mil per, total 9.4 mil, which is down from 6 mil per.

Well, Ponder, Nash skated by Bob and gave him a little poke.  After a whistle, with Nash facing Bob, he knocked Nash's stick out of his hands, then Nash gave Bob a two-handed push in the upper chest/facial area.

Don't F with our Vezina winning goaltender....

I disagree only because if we lose Johansen and he goes on to be successful elsewhere

Where is he going to go?  He can't go anywhere unless he signs an offer sheet from another club and the Jackets elect NOT to match.  The Jackets aren't going to trade him unless they're blown so far out of the water it wouldn't make sense to NOT trade him.

The Jackets have ALL of the leverage.  Is Johansen going to risk missing an entire season?  The Jackets have enough good prospects that are NHL ready just waiting to crack the line-up.  They are in GREAT shape. 

If the Jackets miss the playoffs this year without Johansen, but are within a couple of points like in 2013, it only provides further evidence that Johansen helped, but wasn't the catalyst or reason for the successful 2013-2014 campaign.

"Oh, but that proves they would have made it WITH Johansen" you say?  Maybe or maybe not, I do know that if he sits a full season it will only help the franchise in the future... Wennberg and Rychel will get some playing time, with no pressure to "be the man."

That is a very good spot to be in as a franchise, even if you miss out on "the best #1 center the team has ever had" for 1 season. 

Comment 18 Sep 2014

The good news is the Jackets haven't attacked Johansen publicly, they've attacked his agent.  That's a fairly important distinction I think is worth noting.  Going after the agent gives the impression they feel Johansen would be willing to sign any of these deals, but his agent is looking out for number 1, not his client.  So far, public and media discord has been directed at the agent and not the player.  That is a very slick move by the front office.

Comment 12 Sep 2014

I'll probably get slaughtered for this, but I have to say there should be a distinction.

the bottom line ... is that no man should ever hit a woman

I agree with that statement in a general sense; however,  there are women out there who specifically push buttons when their significant other or brother or whomever is irritated about something.  Whether verbally or physically, the deliberate "poking the bear" onto another person who, most of us could agree has a breaking point, even as he is attempting to remove himself from the situation, should be treated wholly differently. 

We are all human and have a point where the rage finally boils over and folks who deliberately push a person over that point deserve whatever happens to them.

No man should ever hit a woman is a very generalized and blanket statement.  I have personal experience with this as a guy who was WALKING AWAY from a chick who was FOLLOWING and punching me in the head, I had ZERO leeway to defend myself based off of that generalized statement that existed in my school, and again, because I was the guy, I was suspended from school, not her.  I was the one in trouble.

I personally KNOW women, in their 30s, who do this intentionally and then cry foul when she is finally pushed down or the guy fights back to continue his getaway.

Each situation is different and needs to be treated as such.

Comment 10 Sep 2014

He didn't hit her once, he hit her twice as well as instigate the attack.

I am by no means defending Ray Rice.  Hell, I'm a Browns fan, so anything those SOBs do I wish nothing but Biblical-scale plagues affect them.  With that said, I watched the video (no audio) and I saw her hit him twice outside of the elevator, he pushed her while in the elevator, she swung at him again in the elevator, and then he left-crossed her.  THERE IS A REASON BOTH WERE ARRESTED FOR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. 

She started it, he finished it.  He's no longer in the NFL. 

It's obvious that is how that couple fights, with real fists, not screaming and yelling as evidenced by the fact that neither backed down from the physical altercation.... to each his own, they deserve each other.
