I know much of what is deemed abuse these days would not have met that definition forty years ago

My sense is that it's not so much that the definition that has changed but the norm in how to deal with these situations. In the past, teammates made a funny nickname to bring up the issue. Today, we've created a culture where people feel more comfortable taking more appropriate action.

Pro tip: leaving out political figures in your commenting is always the right choice, regardless of your affiliation (I'm not the downvotes, either).

Underneath the vest and the "Aw shucks" veneer is a straight up badass sexual tyrannosaurus of an american winning machine. 

Might be my favorite comment ever

That last line: Walton surrendered to police on Thursday and is facing a felony charge of carrying a concealed weapon along with three misdemeanor charges: resisting an officer without violence, marijuana possession and reckless driving. These charges stem from a March 12 incident in Miami. The Miami Herald reported that police officers attempted to pull Walton over because they said he was speeding and weaving in and out of traffic. Walton pulled his car over in front of a house, and officers ordered him to the ground as he was exiting the car. Walton began to run and was subdued with a stun gun, but he dislodged the prongs and escaped, according to the report.

Don't agree with your zone read point, but your point about "Urban never retired" might actually have a sliver of merit. I just got out of a conference, decided to use the Woody Hayes parking lot to get turned around, and Urban literally crossed the street in front me.

His body language certainly looked like he was doing something important (and was talking intensely on his phone). Definitely still looks pretty engaged in the program.

Either way you look at it, it doesn't reflect strong character/conviction does it? 

Doesn't necessarily reflect anything about either of those things. As had been mentioned, it's simply smart from a business perspective.

As long as there's an antagonist, I'm fine with it. Definitely would be up for a different batman too

This has me rooting for him rather than seeing as a villain. His frail stature doesn't help
