    Yes, there are some women taking advantage of the pendulum swing, and these men shouldn't be victimized by it.

     

    But at least we're moving away from the way it used to be.  I have a relative that dropped out of college because of something that happened to her at a frat party her freshmen year, and the complete lack of consequences for the frat guys that assaulted her.

     

    And it seems like there is more outrage at college kids getting falsely accused of this stuff than there is about men who rot in prison for murders they didn't commit, and are finally exonerated 30 years later by DNA evidence.  Where's the outrage at the people that lied to get those men convicted?  :dunno:

    It's not about some pendulum swing. It's about university kangaroo courts deciding the guilt and innocence in rape cases. That the dept of education pushed this is mind boggling. Well, it's the govt, so not totally shocking........

    You understand?

     

     

    I agree with that wholeheartedly. I also don't believe anyone's life should be ruined for any one action. 

     

    Btw, I wrote this earlier. I wonder who on this board was defending Jameis Winston when the woman accused him of sexual assault. 

    Comparing this to the Jameis Winston case is apple and oranges.

    Reading this thread makes me wonder if some of these guys were raised with a certain attitude toward women, or if they developed it after bad experiences with women.

     

    I understand there are women out there that cry wolf for whatever reason, but some of these guys seem to be painting all women with a very broad brush.

     

    Women have been getting the short end of the stick when it comes to this stuff for basically all of human history (rape didn't even used to be a crime, and still isn't in some parts of the world), but as soon as a few guys get falsely accused of some stuff, certain people are up in arms about it.

    I don't think Stanford handles these situations well....

     

    But, frankly,  I don't think most colleges (all of them?)  handle these situations very well.

     

    Not getting law enforcement involved is a problem.

     

    Then again,  to argue against my own position,  local law enforcement got involved in the Jameis Winston situation (rape charge?)   And even they handled it poorly.    It read like one of thoe bad novels about small town justice in the South....     this is the way we do things here....   we have our own way of handling things.

     

    That was the tone in that story that I took away from that....

     

    I thought it read like how celebrities get treated in LA......

    The potential is there, now we just need to build the resume

    Maybe.....

     

    but I would argue his resume was exceeding that of manning until the injury.  And that was with Dumb & Dumber running the show. Imagine if Luck had Ballard and Frank from day one.

    I say Ballard, and that's not a knock on Luck. My thinking is comparative to Polian and Manning. In 2011, we sucked without Manning. I think Ballard is building a team that doesn't necessarily have to have a HOF QB to be competitive. I'm not saying we make the playoffs without Luck, but with a semi-competent back-up, I could still see us keeping it interesting. JMO

    Luck > Manning

    All the hype the Colts are getting is making me nervous. They have the talent on paper, but I'm pumping the brakes on my own expectations. The last time they were talked up this much was 2015 and that's when the wheels fell off. I think they can be tremendous but they have to stay healthy and prove it. They have targets on their backs now.

    I don't like the hype either, but the 2015 colts were always a mirage.


  9. You always go with pass rush first.  Unless you have deon sanders and mike Haynes beck there, the corners can only cover for so long.

    The colts gave up so many plays in the freeney/Mathis era because the secondary practically gift wrapped 6-7 yard completions by playing so far off the receivers.

    I can already hear it “Inman catches a T.D. against former team the Colts to win the game.” It’s just the kind of luck we have against them. I was def okay with letting him walk though 

    Jesus, fun to be you......

    I think Rogers plays his role well. Not everyone is going to be a pro bowler. Once Rogers learned his role last year he was pretty good at what he was asked to do.

    Rogers is the best at celebrating after catching his first catch of the game in the 3rd quarter when they are down 14 pts.

    How is he given the 4th spot? He hasn't done anything.  I'd think he'd be behind both Campbell AND Rogers going in at a  minimum meaning he'd be 5th.  People act like he is Reggie Wayne in his prime.  He's a rookie essentially coming off a major injury with no real game experience.  Even if he WAS going to be the #2 last year (which is supposition on people's part who say so) that was in the void that was our lame WR corps.   It appears Inman isn't getting signed or I'd question whether Cain would already be on the cut line with Pascal and Fountain and whoever else is in camp.  He is going to have to EARN his way into the top safe tier of WRs and we have no idea if he's ready to do that.  I just don't get the blind assumptions on him.  A few weeks in PreSeason is not enough proof of anything.  

     Cain has done just as much in the NFL as Campbell.
