  1. greed Does anyone really need say more on the subject than the above 5 letter word?
  2. Hey Ruksak,

     

    Nice to see you leaving your commentary in threads again. I was going to respond to your post in the NFL ratings topic, but it was closed for obvious reasons. 

     

    I always find your take on things intriguing because you know how to frame your argument & back it up even if I might have a different perspective on it. 

     

    You're smart, speak your mind, sarcastic [a plus BTW], & you don't care about being popular or flipping over the apple cart when necessary. Welcome back! 

     

    Just like Bogie, I like you because you tell me what you think, why you think it, & you make no apologies for it. A rare quality in modern day society. I respect that.

      Had to take time for an old friend here  :thmup:

       

      I really want to get back to loving football, but I'm struggling to with all the changes in the NFL atmosphere. So many things about the state of the game have utterly turned me off. Most of you know that i'm no casual fan, and even I, after nearly forty years of being a fan, have stepped away from following football. 

       

      I still lurk here, and hopefully someday I can embrace the game as I once did. Take it easy SW1. You're a good dude. You haven't heard the last of me.

      Good. I'm glad to hear that you aren't going away anytime soon. I respect you because you know how to stand your ground, you don't care if others think an argument you are making is flawed in their eyes, & really all you wanna do is compel people to defend their positions in a dignified manner. 

       

      I admire individuals that aren't intimidated, don't concern themselves with always having to be right, & they know when to pick their battles & when to let pointless stuff go. 

       

      Yes, I will admit that NFL games don't contain the shine & luster they once did for me either probably because of the league's over commercialization of it's product & some protests that take away from just enjoying a football game. Sure, players have a right to voice their frustrations over unnecessary treatment of citizens by authority figures absolutely. However, can't we just enjoy a game for it's own sake once in awhile? 

       

      No need to reply back. I just hope you are doing Okay ruksak. Never lose your twisted sense of humor BTW. One of your best assets in this crazy world of ours. :hat:

  3. I watched a team get away with cheating during a national championship game. I watched as the rules changed and softened the violence of football to a state of quasi-flag football because "we" want to pretend that we didn't understand that getting whacked in the head causes brain damage. I saw the working mans staple, Monday Night Football, get ripped from the free airwaves by frickin' Disney. Mickey Mouse had the money to take that from the underclass masses. I see uniforms changing every year, every game, and this is purely driven by jersey sales. Marketing this product too aggressively has changed the game and the experience for fans, as this is no longer a game. This NFL is merely a product on the shelf next to HD TV's and laptops. I listened to Rashaad Mendenhal and Adrian Peterson compare playing in the NFL to .....slavery. Now I see these piece of garbage BLACK millionaires promoting the idea that black people cannot get ahead in America while contemplating whether or not to buy a Ferrari or a Lambo. Listen up, America. You are NOT a victim. You are responsible for your own life and the choices made therein. You may find comparable societies across the world, but you will find no society more fair than that of America. Collin Kaepernick was raised well and he went to college, he made good choices. The people Kaepernick wants to paint as victims were raised by trash to act like trash and live like trash..... and Collin wants to sit out the anthem as a means of spotlighting how these trashy people are somehow victims of a nefarious systematic racist construct? If you want to sit out a song in protest, take a damn knee when you hear someone playing Kanye West or Lil Wayne. Rubes. Y'all deserve the festering ghettos you murder each other in. Promote your peoples shortcomings to a funky beat. Nice. Victims. Right........ If there's too many cops in your neighborhood for your liking, that means there's a LOT of crime in your neighborhood. Move. It's America. Move. I hear stories from the Depression era of how men walked hundreds of miles to the next state, leaving their families behind so they could find work, and these helpless "victims" can't move to a better location? Pick up your free Obama-phone and find a job, any job, somewhere else. If a cop pulls you over, don't run. Don't smart off. Do your duty as a citizen and allow the officer to do his job. It's not his/her fault you live in a crime-ridden filth pit.
  4. Watching petulant multimillionaires who have tasted the best of what American opportunity can offer anyone, of ANY race, protesting how unfair American life is ..............? Reason #27 why I stopped watching NFL football after 39 years of rabid fandom. Millennials.......you @#$&ing suck
  5. Defenders are not allowed to target a receiver at or below the knees while in the process of establishing possession (making a football move).
  6. I think the next uniform idea for the NFL should be to just make the uniforms out of money. That way........... when we buy their damn jerseys, we'll be buying money and we won't feel so silly.
  7. I tend to agree with Nadine on this. Adding; Our society has gone from sitting around and sharing family photo albums with people they know, to sharing all their high definition private moments with everyone in the world. PS: You can't properly parent with a damn camera in your hand. Put it down.
  8. Good luck to Coby. I thank him for his service. I always liked him, despite his penchant for disappearing at times.
  9. I think they should've wallpapered the forum with images of Peyton Manning as a vampire, or perhaps a werewolf. Something frightening and spooky. Because that would be cool.

  11. The offensive line could've co-MvP'd that game as well IMO.
  12. I remember him ripping our defense during that ill-fated 05 playoff game.
  13. The concept of Civil Rights is nothing but a toy in the hands of the Millennial generation.
