GO PATS. Come at me haters, my time as an Ohio State fan from New England has trained me well to fight the good fight against you.
As a New Englander with three degrees from Ohio State, I don't. ;)
Is this supposed to be some meta-anti-Ohio State-hater post? It's funny because it's the exact same argument that SEC fans use every year against OSU.
This is not an attempt to troll, but do many people really care about the Crew?
Judging by the fact that it was a sold out game with a great atmosphere, I'd say yes. Definitely generational though, millenials and younger are all in but I don't see many gray hairs. Definitely used to getting shit from my older relatives about liking soccer but IDGAF.
Yeah......no...Go Crew forever and ever
The enemy of my enemy is my ally.
Maybe: "The enemy of my enemy is my frenemy"?
Hmmmm...I'm not interested in dry goods, what's the 11w wet goods situation like?
Actually...I went and looked it up. The answer is no, they cannot. Article 6, Section 2(d): "No player shall be eligible to be employed by an NFL Club until he has been eligible in an NFL Draft." Article 20, Sections 1 and 5 deal with players in the CFL and the Arena Football League and have strict rules.
Basically, and relative to my point, you have to have gone through a draft and not been picked to be a free agent.
I really don't think this picture could be any better. Blessed art thou who makes such dank memes.
I don't think players right out of college in the US can actually (as opposed to, for example, players from the CFL). The process is a part of the CBA between the union and the league. The CBA sets most of those rules, including the draft, supplemental draft, free agency, etc. so the answer would be there. I don't have a copy of the CBA so I can't be sure.
Good one but no, I'm defending people against those A-Holes.
Well...as a graduate of The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law I have a few things to say, DJ:
1. Twitter Law School is the real deal, so on point with that.
2. The draft actually was (is?) a really controversial topic in courts for a long time. Many of the major sports leagues were sued over it, with some mixed results. I was going to do a whole analysis and talk about why they aren't illegal...but really they probably should be (and I'm lazy and have better things to do).
If those bastard ISIS douchenozzles make it so I can't sneak airplane-sized bottles of Jame-o into the Shoe I'm joining the Marines tomorrow to kick some serious ass.
Exactly. And while I understand Decker's response, you really can't rest on your laurels in this game. You improve and grind on.
You don't get better by lying to yourself about your flaws. I really hope that the OL doesn't think it played as well as it can, or else we are in trouble.
Well thank the good lord nobody got more spaghetti than allowed...that would have been a REAL problem.
I would comment more so I could inform people that they are violating the rules such as talking politics and being a big ole jerk but my man (or woman, don't know) Triple B (BBB) apparently has that covered.
Dude, yes, let's do it.
We could also joust. When I was a kid the neighborhood kids would wrap ourselves in pillows, ride a bike while holding a hockey stick, and try to knock each other off. Sure it resulted in my worst injury as a child, but it was fun as heck.
GO BUCKS--Helmet stickers for all!!!!!
Of course not many will agree with me, I'm on 11w after all...sanity and perspective on Ohio State sports are not to be expected. Love you guys anyway.
Thanks for your support. Since I don't see a saber I'm going to assume you agree and don't want to duel.
1) I think we can both agree that Texas takes creepy to the next level in football, so I'm not buying the argument that because Texas is crazier, it makes this OK.
2) I prefer on field action/actual practice videos/occasional prank videos to watching boys walk into a hotel, but that's just me.
Good lord football needs to come back, because this paparazzi BS makes me sick.
There are literally grown ass men who camp out all day to watch 18 year old boys walk from cars to a hotel lobby. That's it. Seems pretty dang lame if you ask me. And then we go on to talk about what their t-shirts say? And we are the ones that will later criticize people for caring about what some celebrity is wearing?
DAG YO. We need perspective and kickoff. I pray for our souls.
Anyone else think it's incredibly creepy that grown ass men and women spend hours standing outside of a hotel to take pictures of 18-22 year old boys walking from cars to the lobby? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! We gossip about the SHIRT THEY ARE WEARING?! I couldn't care less. (Although this rant proves that that is unequivocally false) And yet, we will make fun of our wives and girlfriends when they talk about what dress a celebrity is wearing on the red carpet? JIMMINY CRICKETS WE ARE FLIPPIN' HYPOCRITES AND THE OFFSEASON NEEDS TO END.
I FEEL LIKE I'M TAKING CRAZY PILLS BECAUSE I'M THE ONLY ONE THAT THINKS IT'S SO STUPID. We need to take a deep look in the mirror, because we seriously lack perspective if we think that it's necessary to cover that.
And yes, I get that it's OHIO STATE FOOTBALL but sweet baby Jesus have we lost our marbles?
YES I'M SALTY AND CHALLENGE YOU TO A DUEL IF YOU DISAGREE.
Late to the party, but a couple points:
1. Have we all just decided that we are going to spell "judgment" wrong until it sticks? As a lawyer I feel as cringey as I imagine you feel when you see "as a lawyer" in a thread. This is America. No "e" in "judgment". GTFO wit dat BS.
2. I like Harbaugh more than I've ever liked a Michigan man, including my father, but I bet that will change, oh, mid-November, 2015. Also I want to see him fail, but not because I dislike him, but I dislike how much Michigan fans LIKE him and want to see them experience pain.
Peace out Buckeye Nation.
