  1. Ceci n'est pas une politics thread.

    How many times do I need to mention Dukakis in this thread until it registers?

    Please stop cheering for the Rams. It's bad enough I have to be associated with Cardinals fans.
  4. Minor League Hockey Shake-up...coming

    You act as if the Sharks somehow actually care about fielding a financially successful AHL team or player development.

    Seriously, they crushed Dukakis simply by calling him a "liberal". You don't think the GOP and Trump would simply bury Sanders with the "Socialist" thing if it were head-to-head in the general? Especially since they've done such a good job of conflating socialism with communism in the national psyche.

    Silly rabbit, civics lessons and long term critical thinking skills aren't for white youths with feelings of disenfranchisement.
  7. Oh Baylor, Where Art Thou?

    Didn't cover it up. Framed the dead player as a drug dealer to cover up the under-the-table payments he was making to his players. Dave Bliss is a general scumbag of highest proportions and his complaints about the "Albuquerque media fish bowl" back when he coached at New Mexico have a haunting darkness then and now.

    I'm not arguing that the Chiefs are average Dude. If anything I suggested the Chiefs flat out sucked during the period in question.

    And yet the Chargers didn't win the Super Bowl. And then they completely mishandled the coaching transition that following offseason while not adding any parts to that team. If the ostensible goal is a championship, then yes the Spanoses are failures and the Chargers can certainly be described as "futile".
  10. Oh Baylor, Where Art Thou?

    What should the NCAA do? Nothing more really-Baylor's program isn't going to recover from this. What should the US Department of Education do? (OH HAI GUYS!) No federal student aid money until a reliable Title IX regime is in place. The latter, btw, would hurt Baylor far more than sanctioning football.

    The Patriots may be "cheap" by some standards, but they will still bring in a supporting cast to help Brady. Key distinction. The Chargers wouldn't bring in Seau or Rodney Harrison (just to same some players the Chargers lost) as FAs, just as one example. Seriously, do the Chargers ever bring in decent players via free agency? The 1990s Chargers had one of the best linebackers to ever play the game (Seau) and only managed 3 playoff bids. The 2000s Chargers frequently had high seeds and the services of some truly gifted offensive players (Brees/Rivers and Tomlinson) and basically lost in the playoffs to anyone not from the AFC South. 3 of their 6 playoff seasons ended in their first game. Somehow you might think they could do better than that.

    Yeah man, the guy who got benched in favor of Doug Flutie is such a threat to keep you from playing. Brees only got good after the Rivers/Manning draft.

    Let's put it this way...the Chargers were too cheap to surround their occasional draft home runs with the actual talent necessary to get the organization over the hump. That's on the Spanoses, and rather damning when you think about the hall of famers they were able to get in the draft. Eli Manning didn't want to go to that organization for a reason. ----------------------------------------- Also, it's kind of easy to overlook just how crappy the AFC West was in the mid-to-late 2000s and early 2010s. The Chargers could blunder into the playoffs just on the back of the few talented players they had.
