Skins v. Seahawks Open Thread

Rooting for the Skins myself, because Oliver Willis has suffered publicly for so many years. Also, because I am so sick and tired of the whiny ass Seahawks fans bitching about the Superbowl they lost to the Steelers.

    Not sports, but I think it’s worth pointing out that Jennifer Rubin of all people wrote something that makes sense. She dumps all over the shitty governor of Pennsylvania for trying to get the NCAA punishment of Penn State thrown out because it hurts innocent people who did nothing wrong. Well, yeah. It does hurt people who did nothing wrong. But so what? Every time we punish somebody for wrongdoing it hurts other people who didn’t do anything.

    I get so sick of the “Oh, dear, this will hurt so many people who didn’t do anything wrong” crap. Sure, some people will get shafted with this deal the school took. And I try to be a compassionate fellow, but in this case, all I can say is, Too bad.

    I mean, what the hell? Any time some criminal gets sentenced or some defendant in a civil suit ends up paying a big settlement, blameless people get shafted. When a killer goes to jail for life, there are often children left behind who grow up without a father. Do we seriously think about not prosecuting murderers because their children will suffer with a father in jail? I sympathize with the guiltless children, and I’m all for some kind of program to help such children overcome this burden; but we still have to prosecute and convict murderers.

    Or if some company dumps toxic sludge into a creek somewhere, and they end up having to pay out hundreds of millions in fines, it might lead the company into bankruptcy and throw hundreds or thousands of people who had nothing to do with the dumping out of work. Those people and their families will suffer because of an award like that. Do we then let businesses do whatever they want, since suing them to clean up their deadly messes will harm innocent people?

    @Zapruder F. Mashtots, D.D.S. (Mumphrey, et al.):

    Well, now that I think about it, that does have to do with sports. How about that?

    And I don’t see anything wrong with holding grudges, as long as it’s in sports, where it can’t really do too much harm to anybody. I’ll always hate the Red Sox for beating the Phillies in the 1915 World Series, and that was more than 50 years before I was born. Hell, my father wasn’t even born then, and he was in his 50’s when I was born. He remembers the game in the 1929 series when his A’s were trailing the Cubs 8-0 into the 7th and scored 10 runs in an inning to win 10-8. He heard it over the radio…

    @Just Some Fuckhead:

    “At the end of the 1965 season, Allen reached an agreement with owner Dan Reeves of the Los Angeles Rams to replace Harland Svare as head coach. He quickly faced a legal battle with Halas, who claimed that Allen’s leaving was in breach of his Bears contract. (Halas accused Allen and the Rams of “chicanery.”) The Bears’ owner did win his case in a Chicago court but immediately allowed Allen to leave, saying he initiated the lawsuit to make a point about the validity of contracts. Halas would not be so magnanimous in an NFL meeting soon after when he attacked Allen’s character. Upon hearing this, Green Bay coach Vince Lombardi joked to Reeves, “Sounds like you’ve got yourself a hell of a coach.”

    He “Allowed him to leave”, uh huh.

    I hear you completely. It is really at the edge of ok to have had him in there anyway…. despite his desire to play.
    It is very hard to get the knee to perform the same on damaged ligaments — as much psychologically as physically.

    We’ll see. Its terrible to have this issue come up with a rookie superstar quarterback. Russel Wilson will also have to watch out — and he is much smaller…

    Still — its the head thing. Bad problems with the joints is bad — but the head thing is paramount and absolutely devastating.

    YAY Seahawks! Overcame early difficulty and stayed centered…. Good for them!. Look forward to seeing them in the next round… Young Russel Wilson has the “goods”

    Jay Cutler (Chicago– take a look. Do you have the “leadership” to model either of these teams? Do you even know what that IS?

    Thank Gawd. I work with an inflamed asshole who happens to be a huge fan of the Washington Racially Insensitive Stereotypes. He has been honking about that team for weeks now & we are all terribly tired of it. Unless he whines that they got cheated tomorrow will be blissfully peaceful.

    @CW in LA: I always wonder about people who are unable to read the 50 other political posts put up today, but expect their lack of intelligence to be missed by anyone else.

    @James E. Powell: It was obvious he couldn’t avoid a rush or outrun it for the whole second half. Cousins has played very well when he’s had to come in, so you’d think he Shanahan might want to avoid ending his rookie QB’s career.

    Patriots will skin the Texans. Brady will take them apart, play by play.

    @Poopyman: Agree completely. But the owner may have been the one making the call to play him. An injured
    knee screws up passing as well as running. Any coach that decided to play him long after it was clear he was not able to perform should be dealt with severely.

    @Zapruder F. Mashtots, D.D.S. (Mumphrey, et al.):

    The only positive thing I have seen about the Corbett suit, is the cesspool of cheating at UNC-CH is at least getting some attention.

    From Corbett’s lawsuit:

    (d) A recent internal investigation at the University of North Carolina revealed massive academic fraud, including unauthorized grade changes by forged signatures, and classes in which no instruction took place; approximately forty percent of the students enrolled in these classes were football and basketball players. In August 2012, one month after sanctioning Penn State, the NCAA took the public position that none of the alleged conduct violated NCAA rules.

    The NCAA, UNC System BoG, UNC-CH BoT and the NC state legislature should be flogged for not doing more to address what is the largest case of academic fraud in the UNC System and probably in modern college athletics.

    Also, because I am so sick and tired of the whiny ass Seahawks fans bitching about the Superbowl they lost to the Steelers.

    If you didn’t have a guilty conscience you wouldn’t care.

    My childhood team is the Rams. Because of the cool helmets, let’s be honest.

    However, being a Pacific Northwesterner nearly all my life, I’m a Seahawks fan first and foremost now. Even when they play the Rams, which they do twice a year now thanks to that moronic NFL reorganization a few years back.

    College, of course, it’s the alma mater, despite becoming the Fighting Fashion Nightmares who do runway stuff for Phil Knight.

    Cole, as a Seattleite that was in Michigan for our Super Bowl (taking the field to Bittersweet Symphony was a bad omen) I will fucking hunt you down. I won’t use a gun…oh no…guns are for pussies.

    I’ll bring a second-place steak knife and footage of that ****sucker *****lisberger placing the football over the line six seconds after he was down.

    In short I hope *****lisberger rapes something you love.

    And there was actually an article in the Times about some mother and her 14-year old son surprised at just how ‘profane’ football fans were. Shocking.

    Cheers!

    If we’re looking for a target fir ‘sports hate’ i don’t hink we could do better than Shanahan. disgraceful.
    if he had not lied about Dr. Andrews’s report on this same knee in the previous game, it might have been possible to think he left RG# in there just out of the excitement of the moment…..or something. But this is obviously a calculated policy choice by him–to throw his team members, is rookie star no less–under the bus.
    i sure hope he hasn’t ended the kid’s career.

    Cheating in Chapel Hell is old news. Ask any Duke or NC State fan; bullshit grades for no-show classes have been an open secret for the last decade. The NCAA”/ response will probably be … nada.
