They're both right. Professors should get more resources and the players should get paid, in my opinion. It's not really useless for them to get mad at each other, though. Get mad at the higher ups at LSU, and the NCAA in general.

it's not even that outlandish. he's the QB for a top 10 team with a good new offensive coordinator. "dark horse pick" doesn't mean that finebaum thinks Shea Patterson is going to win the heisman lol

stop being mad at everything

Driving the ball and working the ball toward the rim do several things that numbers can’t catch. 1) it creates more quality/open 3s 2) it creates more fouls shots 3) it increases the likelihood of opponent fouls trouble and getting better players off the floor 4) it requires your opponent to defend and spend energy. 

the numbers do catch this and it's basically the entire foundation of efficiency metrics

I perfectly understand the social realities. That's how people dress, who cares?

I have a problem with the stigmatization of lower class communities by calling them "refugees from the projects".

For what it's worth, I disagree with Stern's dress code too because I feel like it does the same. It's dehumanizing. Players should be able to express themselves just like any other human being.

Stern was concerned with public perception of the players and took steps to protect the brand, is that wrong? Is it wrong to explain it?

Explaining it like this is fine. Calling the players "refugees from the projects" is why they got downvoted. Pretty simple.

He said I was "virtue signalling" too so you can add that.

You just cited more anecdotes, which, once again, are not evidence. Yeah it sucks that they were falsely accused but it's a proven fact that false accusations are a very small minority of accusations.

The fact is though, moral grandstanding online does not protect people from rape.

 I mean, yeah. I do think it's an important discussion to be had, though. The more people that understand, the better, you know?
