Mcnabb played in a passer's league. Was injured way too much.   Never won the big game.  There are much better players than him not in the Hall of Fame.  He might get there one day, but I do not think it will be anytime soon.

Comment 24 May 2019

Thank you all for the sound advice.  I will take everyone's suggestions into consideration.  Once again, thanks to the best site on the web.

Comment 22 May 2019

Yes, I just started my second semester.

Comment 03 May 2019

Your only logical reasoning is that they make money for the universities, that alone is not enough.  As I said in another post, they get a free education, training, nutritionist, tutors, plus many more benefits.  If you were to pay the men's basketball or football teams you would need to pay the lady teams the same, whether they make any revenue or not.  That is why that will never happen.  Very few universities make money off of sports, there are probably ten that do make money, others either break even or lose money.  Do you think that schools that do not make nearly as much revenue as OSU will pay players?  There is no way that they can afford it.  Well, then the haves will get the players and the have nots will suffer, is that fair?  There is NO WAY that the NCAA will allow that to happen.  They are now just starting to let players transfer without sitting out even though there are still players that do not get a waiver.  This more than just paying the players, there is a lot of logistics that come along with paying the players and that is where Title IX comes in.  It does not matter if the men's teams make all of the money and you want to pay them 100k a year, that means that every synchronize swimmer will get the same pay.  Do you think that the synchronized swimming team makes the same money as the football team?  No, they do not, that is why the Title IX law that was passed in 1972 comes into play, without that you would have schools paying men's players as much as possible while the women get nothing.  I do not know if you know what happened a hundred years ago and then again in the 1960s but women now have equal rights, and that is why you will never be able to pay players what you think that they are entitled to.

No, you do not know about Title IX, you thought it had something to do with the NBA and the WNBA getting equal pay.  It has nothing to do with Professional Sports, this is ALL ABOUT COLLEGES, that is what Title IX is all about.  I should know because I am getting my graduate degree from Georgetown University in Sports Management and that is what we study.

They get paid already.  How much is enough? They get room, board, a free education, free tutors, free training, free trainers, free nutritionist, free food, they get a stipend of up to 5k.  What else do they need?  If they do not take advantage of all of those free things, then that is on them.

Comment 01 May 2019

People are just too ignorant to know things of that nature.  There was a reason that Title IX was passed in 1972, it gives equal footing for both men and women.  If you give one gender one thing you have to give the same to the other gender.

Its practice man, it's just practice. My best AI impersonation.
Comment 12 Apr 2019

I am sorry, but these last three Star Wars have sucked.  I can only get maybe halfway through the movie before I get bored.  But, I am old school when it comes to Star Wars.  What I want to know is when are they going to make another Ewok movie, that would be awesome.

Besides the drops is there any thing else that you do to try to help with the disease?
Comment 07 Apr 2019
That would be great Cal, any information would be helpful. I am glad that there are people who care and that I can vent to about my situation, it means a lot to me. Thanks.
Comment 07 Apr 2019
Thanks for the information. I have been reading everything that I can on the issue, I still have a lot to learn a out what this all means. I started taking Bilberry extract with my drops, hopefully, it helps. Thanks.
Comment 05 Apr 2019

Thanks, I really appreciate that.  Yes, the tests that were done were new to the office and it worked out quite well, well when it comes to detection it did.  I am going to try as many supplements as I can for eye care and see if that helps at all.  I do know that he said that my optic nerve is getting thinner and that something in the back of my eye is separating from the wall.  As I said, I was in shock and I did not put two and two together until I walked out and was driving home. 

Comment 05 Apr 2019

Yes, I have been through all of the tests, matter of fact, last year he mentioned that there is a possibility but he wanted to wait until this last eye appointment to make sure.  Now, he wants me to come back in July for another test to see if the drops have worked any.  The drops are new and the FDA just approved them in '17, hopefully, it works. 

Comment 05 Apr 2019

He would but when he told me I was in to much shock to hear everything, especially when he said that there is a possibility that I could be blind in twenty years.  There was only one thing that came to mind when he told me and that was Kirby Puckett, he had glaucoma and he always talked about it when he was alive, but better research has been done since then.  It was just a question that I thought someone that might have been through something like this might have an answer to.  Thanks, I appreciate that.

Comment 05 Apr 2019

That has been researched and has been confirmed that it works, but I am in graduate school and I cannot afford to smoke dope and try to be the best student that I can.  I am afraid that herb is not in discussion.
