I live in an apartment that I rent in the city. I do lots of things for a living and I am content on not having an office. No wife, which is a long story. No kids either, which is an even longer story. I also have more nose hair than my brother.

Wouldn't say that's arbitrary at all. The others weren't caught on live video. This was. It was very obvious as to what happened without any guess and assumption as to what happened. Removing all doubt as to what happened made a decision rather easy.

Now, it doesn't mean Goodell isn't an megalomaniac either but I would say that this is about as obvious as it can be.

And you're really only tied to him until 2020 if he self destructs

I never understand why people say that in regards to NFL players. Those contracts aren't guaranteed. They're not tied to him at all if he doesn't perform. Yes, they would have a 1 year hit against the cap for half of his salary for that upcoming year but there isn't nothing that truly binds them to him if he doesn't do well and they end up releasing him. Of course you don't want to just release him because of what was spent to get him but he's a worker and don't think that would be the case.

Now, with your point, it's not so much the 2020 timeframe but that NYG paid for most of his money upfront, particularly that $20 million signing bonus. The Browns are only paying him like $14 to $15 million a year, which from what I read is similar to what Sammy Watkins if making. I think it's quite the bargain for the Browns in that aspect.

You legitimately keep talking without ever making an actual point or even attempting to state what your synopsis is of your entire post. Its muddy and random, thus not making any sense. So while I'm being facetious in my comment, my overall point is for you to make an actual point in yours. Be as random as you want and talk about Michigan and Ferrari's and whatever else you want to analogize but at least tell us what you're actually trying to say so it doesnt seem like drunken nonsense.

This is kind of the goofy thing about the argument...you both agree with each other but keep trying to explain your different points that lead to the same result lol.

But Kmp, I'll add to your point. If Durkin was considered to be not at fault and innocent here (this is obviously hypothetical), then Maryland should have gone to bat for him. In this case, they reinstated him and then fired him after the outcry from both the public and the team itself. THEY SHOULD'VE KNOWN THIS WAS COMING. This should not have been a surprise to them and they should've weighed the inability to recruit, raise funds, and glad-hand with donors and parents before bringing him back originally. This was horrible judgement on their part. If he's unable to handle these and still bring a good name to the program, can you reinstate him? The answer is unequivocally no. They messed up. If he was innocent, then you go to bat for him but if there's any shred of doubt, you need to back off and let him go for the reasons mentioned above here.

Looked things up for accuracy and this is what I found when reading this article:

Prior to electric televisions, we had mechanical televisions.

These early televisions started appearing in the early 1800s. They involved mechanically scanning images then transmitting those images onto a screen. Compared to electronic televisions, they were extremely rudimentary.

And here's a rough explanation of how it worked:

Mechanical televisions relied on rotating disks to transmit images from a transmitter to the receiver. Both the transmitter and receiver had rotating disks. The disks had holes in them spaced around the disk, with each hole being slightly lower than the other.

To transmit images, you had to place a camera in a totally dark room, then place a very bright light behind the disk. That disk would be turned by a motor in order to make one revolution for every frame of the TV picture.

Baird’s early mechanical television had 30 holes and rotated 12.5 times per second. There was a lens in front of the disk to focus light onto the subject.

Obviously mechanical TV's don't exist anymore but they were developed long before the electronic TV's were made and even longer before they were sold commercially.

Nobody is worse than Hue.

Apparently 1 coach has been...

If you are what your record says you are, Hue Jackson is the second-worst coach in NFL history.

The Browns’ loss today drops Jackson to 11-44-1 as an NFL head coach: 8-8 in Oakland and 3-36-1 in Cleveland. That’s a winning percentage of .205.

How bad is that? There have been 219 coaches in NFL history who coached at least 40 games in their career. Jackson ranks 218th in career winning percentage.

The only coach who was worse was Bert Bell, who led the Eagles to a record of 10-46-2 (.179) from 1936 to 1941. And Bell couldn’t be fired because he was also the owner of the Eagles.

So if you include games coached by a guy before (electronic) television sets were commercially released, then yes, he's the 2nd worst coach in history.
