I heard the opposite Smanpoint10.  I heard he was upset with the temporary order and was pushing for a definitive open order so players/coaches could know for sure there would be a season.  But its all second and third hand stuff and none of my normal contacts are talking.  So you could be right.

Nope.  And shame on you for presuming that was what it is.  I would expect more from a mod. This was exactly why I wanted to have a PM with a mod and not do this in public.

I appreciate the offer Jason, but that's kind of like running to the principal and the inside out of not airing dirty laundry to everyone.  I just had something I saw that bothered me and I wanted to discuss it privately with a mod without narcing anyone out (to you) or getting the huddled masses involved.

stop using the accusation of racism as a cudgel to try and give yourself a moral instant-win in social arguments

I prefer to use logic and historical fact.

 But in my 100% admitted ignorance on the dynamics of Native American tribal councils,

You should've stopped typing right there.  Because your wokeness has no impact on the needs of people on the Res.

Well, I thought the whole reason to go through the exercise of changing the name is because its offensive to someone.  By definition, the term must be considered perjorative by the target. in order to be offensive.  If its a name the target calls itself, it then by definition can't be perjorative.  Unless you think the target is too stupid to think that for themself.  Which, Ironically, makes YOU a racist because you know better than the target.

Point of history.  Per Ives Goddard, the Smithsonian Institute's senior linguist discovered in 2005  some early documents that First Nation Chiefs referred to themselves as Redskins.  Non N.A. who are insulted by a terminology that the NA themselves aren't are by that mere act proving to be racist  Because they are saying they know better than the actual NA whats best for them..  Ironic, huh?

Yeah he didn't last long.  WInwood and Capaldi believed in writing collabratively.  Mason came to recording sessions with completed songs and the other two didn't want to use them.  So he said fuck off and left.  He told me that story back stage when i interviewed him for the college station I was program director of.  I couldn't use the live recording because he was fired up about Traffic and was a bit "rough".  I was never able to find out who he really had issues with, but I suspect it was Capaldi.  Winwood and he have recorded and performed together occasionally.

I don't particularly like this write up.  The author seems to miss the point on them.  He thinks their musical development was somehow planned out and orchestrated, which I reject.  Everything I've read and heard seems to indicate that their musical development was much more organic and a product of their experiences.  I think the author (who I've never heard of, is more impressed with himself than any of his readers.  Sorry for such a scathing attack.

Here's a better write up.  The cover story from Time magazine january 12, 1970.

If anyone is interested in a deeper dive to The Band; there is an official/unofficial website (I'm not sure who manages it) with all kinds of interesting things.  Setlists.  Copies of newspaper and magazine articles.  You can really lose yourself in there.  Its really interesting to read some of the early magazine articles like them hitting the cover of TIme Magazine and reading the first impressions of their music.

For those interested who have AXSTV channel (340 DirecTV) and either stay up late or have DVR...the Classic Albums documentary episode featuring The Band's second album, "The Band" will be aired on Sunday morning at 4:00 a.m.

I've also seen that on YouTube.

When Dave introduced this song he said, "Now we are going to do a couple of Traffic A.D. songs.  A.D. stands for After Dave; which means I can play them however the fuck I want"  He then broke into that blues riff.  My buddy and I are just nodding to the groove.  I said to Martin, 'This is some good blues shit."  And then we hear, "If you see something that looks like a star",  We just looked at each other with our jaws on the floor.  Its one of the most surprising moments I've ever had at a concert.
