I think it's a forgotten fact that the Bosa family isn't hurting for money.  Sure, Joey's team is working their best for him.  I think everyone is focused on the money but are forgetting that there are 2 things that the Chargers are asking of Joey.  His team has said "pick one or the other".  They're willing to compromise, the Chargers aren't.  Everyone can keep focusing on the $2.5mil, and say "just sign it already".  We're talking about millions here.  Would anyone risk millions?  I know I wouldn't

I know that Nikki gets the credit for being the main song writer, but I believe it's more lyrical than musical direction.  Mick's guitar licks are clearly his own creations and not to mention the cohesiveness between Mick and Tommy was also another strength of the band.  I love the early Motley Crue material.  Very raw and not over produced.  Maybe that's why I love the John Corabi album so much.  I don't think there's a song on this album that I don't like. 

Nice write up Ludwig!

There's no denying Metallica's awesomeness thru the years.  I will say that I'm of the old school Metallica fan.  The first time I ever heard Enter Sandman, I thought "what in the hell is this????".  I listened to this album once, start to finish and that was the it.  I knew they were no longer the Metallica I knew and loved.  Now that I'm older, (I still don't like this album) I do recognize the genius of this album.  This album paved the way for an entirely new set of fans.  Metallica went from "yeah, that band that does that "One" song with the crazy fast ending"  to a band with the largest 15-21(years old) following.  If you were in HS or college and never listened to Metallica before and heard this, you were an instant fan.  Then as you explored Metallica and listened to the earlier stuff, you most likely preferred the Black album, Load and Re-Load albums.  This album, in my opinion, was the divider amongst fans.  I think most old school fans prefer the trashier side of Metallica and the newer school fans prefer the slowed down bluesy version.  

Thanks for listening... Oz

It's my opinion that Ringo Starr has never quite gotten enough credit for his drumming.  Most don't even know that he's a left handed drummer playing on a right handed kit.  His off-time with all of those continuous fills made him very unique.  He's the refined version of Ginger Baker.

Brewster, I get what you're saying.  JJ just happen to say that over the weekend about DeAndre Hopkins and his contract situation.  It was fresh in my memory, so that's why I used JJ.

JJ Watt put it best when he said that a player's career is a short window so a player needs to do what's best for him.  The ball in is the Charger's court.  Bosa's camp has responded with "one or the other" and San Diego is only making themselves look bad.  They're going to have a hard time getting FA's to sign with them when they pull this kind of crap.

I'm seeing a lot of names that had excellent Buckeyes careers and nice NFL careers.  If the question is: who I didn't think would have the NFL career?  I'm surprised at some of the names mentioned that people didn't think they'd have the career they had.  Ebner being my choice only because he was limited to mostly special teams.  Maybe I'm reading all of this wrong....

You might get to have some beers with Madden after the game.  He's known for riding him bike to the park and stopping at the bars on the way home.  Cubs fan or not.. it would still be pretty cool to chug a few with the Manager of the Cubs.

Nice write up!  2 things... first, I don't think James ever got enough credit for his guitar playing.  Dave Mustaine was a huge influence on him early and because of Dave's style, it pushed James and made him into a fantastic guitarist.  I think that gets lost quite a bit because he doesn't play many solos.  Second, I love his contributions with Corrosion of Conformity.  He and Pepper can really growl on the mic.  Case in point...Man or Ash 

In case anyone cares... Corrosion of Conformity is my absolute favorite metal/hard rock band.

When did everyone get so damn sensitive?  I'm not referring to anyone here on the forum, I'm asking in general.  I don't even think Votto was upset with the fan, I think he was more upset with himself for not catching the ball.  I think the tug of the shirt was just a reaction, nothing more.  The fan got 2 signed balls after.  Votto apologized... story over.  But somehow the media will take this further than it needs to.  I can recall being at Wrigley Field, down by the bullpen and during the game some of the players were exchanging tons of smack talk with drunk fans and let me tell you, some of the exchanges were pretty damn personal and no one's feelings were ever hurt.  Move on people...

Let me see if I can assist here... The Flat Fifth "Devil's Chord" is pretty much a metal and/or blues chord.  Many years ago, the chord was banned by a church because of it's sound, hence it's name "Devil's Chord".  The three tone chord and it's lack of harmony gives it its "Devilish" sound.  Example, if you play guitar... you'd play the A-minor, Low E string (5th fret), A string (6th fret) and D string (7th fret).  This is the English version so hopefully most everyone understands.  Hopefully there's a musically trained musician who can better explain it than I did.
