    Week 4 TNF: Vikings @ Rams

    What a fun game to watch. I will forever be pissed at Bruce Allen for allowing McVay to leave and not getting rid of this useless Jay Gruden.
  2. Is this guy suffering from an advanced state of CTE already? This stuff makes him sound like he is seriously brain damaged.

    Kirk Cousins is the next Brees

    All of these players you listed, except for Cousins, openly expressed their desire to return to the team.

    Maybe their rationale is he will be franchised again, and someone will pay the first round picks for his rights. I dunno, you’ll have to supply the quote from ES for me to know for sure.

    Injuries are so bad Gruden decided to not hold practices prior to the thanksgiving game against the Giants.

    This season has shown that the redskins coaches are inadequate and they need to be replaced in the offseason.
  7. Considering how bad some of the QBs in this league are, Griffin could definitely be a backup somewhere. But I think his reputation to divide locker rooms, his bickering with coaches, and his "woe-is-me” drama overshadows whatever benefit he could bring to a team. Also, despite finishing college in 3 years with a decent degree, I think his football IQ is too low to be effective at QB. If you bring him in, it’s because you need someone to finish the game if your starter is injured and nothing more. Some of the stories I read about Jay Gruden going off on him in practice for doing the exact opposite of what Gruden told him to do I will never forget.

    Without knowing playbook, terminology, or having any chemistry with the WRs. Probably yes.

    This is true, the bigger a population the harder it is to move a number. Let’s say you have 5 people, and one of them has cancer. That is 20% of this small group, but the larger the group becomes the more people you need to keep the 20% number. But this is why I think they chose to base their statistics off a 1,000 sample size. It’s not going to be 100% accurate to both populations, but it’ll be pretty close.

    That chart isn’t referencing what you bolded in my post. The time period for figure 2 is 1993-2015, not 2012-2015. But since reexamining what I posted, I will admit I misread the part I posted. On page 4, the 3.1 is actually black-on-white crime, not black-on-Black crime. I can admit I made a mistake. The actual number for black-on-Black crime is 16.5. So I was wrong, not less than white-on-white crime, yet going back to a point I made a few posts back, not "much higher than other races” as has been previously stated by others. And still, completely irrelevant to the issue of police brutality.

    Quote a single sentence I’ve written on this thread that has been hateful of any person or group. Meanwhile, plenty of posters in here having said some pretty hateful things about Kaepernick and not a word has been said. Come on dude.

    When did I say I hated white people? LOL! So in the face of overwhelming evidence, you choose to just ignore it and call it BS because it doesn't fit your worldview. Got it. Bravo, continue to fall back on making crap up when you don't have an argument. Take care and have an awesome weekend!

    What exactly does racism in the rest of the world have to do with racism happening in America? The people committing racism in America have nothing in common with the people doing it in other countries, nor are most of them even aware of their existence. To even mention this and claim someone is "too ignorant to even know the truth" is the most ironic statement made in this entire thread. I also love how the foundation of posts like those aren't grounded in any dissenting opinion in this thread, instead it usually begins with "liberals always say..." and then some really outlandish nonsense that they know damn well the majority of Liberals don't believe. Claiming because things are bad in other places, means people shouldn't complain about them being bad in their own backyard is the height of stupidity. It says very little, and solves even less. Moving on..... @bobbywizdum A lot of the questions you asked could be answered in the links I provided. And although I wasn't able to get to this yesterday, but I found a study that gets very deep into what I was trying to convey to you. "Black-on-Black crime" is a dog whistle BS statement only ever brought up and used in response to PoC demanding changes being made in society. Not only is it usually irrelevant to the topic being discussed(like this one), but it's also an incorrect assumption that any other interracial crime is somehow lower. This as false as it can get. Every single race within this country that suffers violent crime is primarily having it done by those of the same race. Between 2012-2015, the rate of white-on-white violent crime (12.0 per 1,000 persons) was roughly four times higher than black-on-black violent crime(3.1 per 1,000), the Bureau of Justice Statistics said in the following link: https://www.bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/rhovo1215.pdf. So, even more ironic when a white person tells a black person they can't complain about police brutality because of "black-on-black" crime, when interracial crime in their own community is actually higher. I'm only debunking this black-on-black crime nonsense so that when people actually decide to address what the protest is about, we can shed off all the excuses and distractions that the media has used to hide the issues for so long and just get down to the core problem and provide solutions. We need major justice system reform in this country. Prosecutors need to face real consequences for taking advantage of certain demographics that don't have the means or leverage to properly defend themselves. Police unions need to be taken down a notch, their blanket defenses of some of the most disgusting scum in our society doesn't do their reputation any favors, and actually harms a Police Departments efforts in actually weeding out the bad cops. But none of this stuff even gets discussed on a state or federal level if people actually think racism in Japan and Canada means those black people are just whining.

    Well, beyond the 600% increased chance to be shot dead by a cop while unarmed, and being passed over for jobs by white ex-cons, there is significantly less funded school systems on average and more likely to be falsely arrested and jailed. I have not. I've had a gun pulled on me by a cop who followed me for two miles, lied and said I was speeding when I set my car to cruise control for the speed limit as soon as I saw him, and then demanded I take off my skull cap or be shot in the face. I was 19 at the time. Just a couple months ago, I was pulled over while driving with my son(he's 7) to the barbershop. The police in my county routinely pull black people over and use a brake light being out as an excuse. When I calmly explained I'd been pulled over twice this year for the same issue, and I've gone to the dealership I bought my car from and they couldn't find any issues with my brake lights, he told me to STFU and stop calling him a liar. Ultimately, he let me go and didn't issue me a repair order.....which is what he was supposed to do when a driver's lights aren't functioning properly. Does that fulfill your criteria as someone who can complain about police brutality or no? I didn't realize that ONLY people who've been curbstomped by police have the right to protest it happening to their fellow citizens. You keep claiming I'm suggesting things that I haven't even brought up. I never suggested anything of the sort. I don't know if the majority of black people in prison have been falsely imprisoned. I do know the city of New York settled a case and wrote off 900K false arrests over the last 3 years, the vast majority of whom were Black and Latino men. But I understand that NY isn't the entire country,and I would never suggest something that is happening in say Chicago or Baltimore, is representative of an entire nation, that would be ridiculous. :) I didn't suggest that at all, but since you brought up the topic......http://repository.law.umich.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=2497&context=articles Black men are nearly twice as likely to be charged with an offense that carried a mandatory minimum sentence than white men facing similar circumstances. When judges have discretion over how long a sentence should be for a specific crime, they tend to select longer sentences for blacks even if they have the same criminal history.

    I'm not overlooking blacks committing more crimes, it's simply not true. There is a difference between overlooking something, and refusing to believe lies. Please provide proof this. While you're at it, you can also provide proof of BLM members shooting cops. And actually, that was your first time asking me what opportunities black people don't have that white people do. Where are you getting the "over and over again" from? It isn't strange that people can't answer questions YOU HAVE NOT ASKED. But sure, I'll answer this question you claim can't be answered. A white man with a criminal record is more likely to get a job from an American employer than a black man with no criminal record. https://csgjusticecenter.org/reentry/posts/researchers-examine-effects-of-a-criminal-record-on-prospects-for-employment/ And that is just one example, I could provide more. Any other unanswered questions you neglected to ask you want me to respond to? And in regards to your anecdotal story, you already knew what my answer would be. Your personal experience doesn't override what is happening in the rest of the country. Picking ONE BLACK GUY who hasn't experienced police brutality, and comparing him to yourself, while ignoring that neither of you equal even .0001% of the population this is about is simply asinine. People can say whatever they want about Kaepernick. I am inclined to agree, his protest was ill-conceived, poorly thought-out, and terribly executed. He also didn't explain himself well, and allowed anyone with a dissenting opinion to craft whatever narrative they wanted. He is where he is right now all by his own doing. But anyone who wants to claim the REASON for the protest(police brutality) is false, is gonna have to back that up with some actual facts and not the weak argument you tried to present. The reason for the protest is unequivocally valid, and making up facts, trying to confuse the issue with irrelevant statements, and using anecdotal stories won't change that one bit.

    Yes, all victims of police brutality suffer similarly, but black people are disportionately targeted by police and suffer more. Pretending this doesn't happen due to your own personal biases doesn't change the fact that it does happen. BLM is not a hate group. It's this dog whistle BS that shuts down nearly all discussions in this matter, because a small minority of people show up to a protest and decide to cause anarchy doesn't negate the large majority of the protests who showed up and protested non-violently. That blacks are oppressed in modern day America is not "jargen", it's an unfortunate fact of American Society that the majority of it's citizens recognize and ignore, and a loud minority chooses to pretend doesn't exist. If blacks aren't committing more crimes than how do I explain the numbers? What numbers? You've provided zero numbers. But let's dive into that. 13% of the population doesn't commit more crimes than 64%. That is literally impossible. And it preys upon a certain inherent bias against a specific demographic that allows an individual to actually believe this to be the issue without putting any thought into it. The other issue is where are the statistics coming from. Crime statistics are supposed to be provided to the FBI, yet very few police departments provide this data. This leaves us with incomplete data that each political party cherrypicks parts of to suit their needs. Please provide these completely accurate numbers you keep citing, I'd love to see it. It should go without saying that if someone is committing a crime, it doesn't give police permission to go break the law. You interjecting crime into this discussion is an easily identified tactic to ignore the actual issue. The only relation between police brutality and crime in America is how much police commit crimes, on-and-off duty, compared to the citizens they are supposed to protect and serve. Using stereotypes of African-Americans to justify police brutality against African-Americans is idiocy. The below graphic is unarmed civilians deaths by police in 2017, comes from the WashPost national police shooting database(which they've been independently tracking since the FBI doesn't), and this was taken September 26th. https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/national/police-shootings/ Keep this in mind, White people outnumber Black people 5 to 1, which means a black person is 600% times likely to be killed while unarmed than a white person. You can't excuse away 600% difference in how police treat one person compared to another. It's hilarious that you can go through every completely debunked racist BS about black people,and not realize how you sound. You claim black-on-black crime is so much higher than any other category. This is false. I'm sure you saw some Russian bot generated meme that your President tweeted, and then summarily retracted and blamed the fact that he tweeted incorrect statistics on some other idiot he got it from. 91% of black people are killed by black people, I'm sure you saw that part.....yet you missed the stat that 88% of white people are killed by white people. No, 3% isn't the "so much higher" you just claimed. The fact is all people killed in any given community are disportionately killed by people of the same community. It's human nature, not "those black people are just violent". And for the love of God, stop asking ridiculous questions that insinuate I said something that I never said. "Why is it you believe that social injustice and racism Only applies to minorities?" Really? When did I say that??? Racism happens to all demographics, and it would be relevant in a discussion that tackles those instances and why they happen. THIS ISN'T THAT DISCUSSION, and you're only bringing it up to distract from the very issue we're discussing and you lack much knowledge about. Other people who aren't Black experience racism doesn't trivialize black people experiencing racism from Police.

    And yet, there is a serious issue when people completely ignore the reason for the protest to harp on the method. It beggars the question of whether they’ve paid the actual reason for the protest any mind if it was done in a manner they find acceptable.

    No, those are not facts. Those are talking point someone gave you and you pass it off as an opinion. Sorry, blacks don’t commit more crimes than whites. Stop getting your information from obviously biased sources. There is so much fail in your post it is hard to decide what to address first. Somehow, with all the police brutality that happens in this country you decide to just bring up Freddie Gray(as if Gray is the only black man killed by police recently), and completely ignore that he was killed in police custody to talk about the riots that happened afterwards. Somehow, Gray’s death is inconsequential to you, but you want to keep harping on a white girl was raped and killed that you haven’t provided any sources about. Was that a result of the Gray murder? Is it a completely separate incident? Why is this girl’s death more important to you than Gray’s? Furthermore, do some damn research before you even go down this road with me. You call me BS, but you didn’t even know out of the six charged officers, who were the two ARRESTING officers that chased Gray down and caused his spine to be injured in the first place? The two white officers. This was covered pages ago, but apparently anytime truth is introduced in this discussion you forget how to read. And to further prove you are completely out of touch, biased, and have no clue what the actual protest is about. The race of the officer doesn’t matter.

    Kinda off-topic but, I thought this was awesome. Apparently, Deshaun Watson gave his first paycheck to three women in need from Houston as well. http://www.nbcsports.com/philadelphia/eagles/chris-long-donate-final-10-eagles-game-checks-play-free And regardless of what people feel about the form of protest, it looks like some good is starting to come from it. How much this promotes change remains to be seen, but an effort in the right direction is better than nothing. https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/roger-goodell-doug-baldwin-write-letter-to-congress-supporting-criminal-justice-reform/

    It's too late for Kaep to get on a team this season. No one will take on the attention it would bring, and without a TC, preseason, practice, any kind of chemistry with WRs, he has no shot of being productive at all. By the time he'd learn the offense, know the plays and terminology the season would be almost over. Asking why he isn't on a team is kinda pointless at this point.

    High rates of crime doesn't justify police brutality and misconduct. Honestly, mentioning the rate of crime means exactly what in regards to police behavior? That it's ok? As I stated before, there is a way to improve these communities and lower the crime rate, but these cities aren't doing it for whatever reason.

    Questionable is an understatement. Gray's spine was 80% severed. We also have no video of the actual arrest, yet we have video for everything that led up to the arrest. So we don't know if it was a chokehold that did it, or if one of the officers did more than that. Considering how there is a camera on every corner in that neighborhood, and the one camera that should've caught the arrest didn't with zero explanation, I'm going to lean on it being more than a chokehold that can sever someone's spine.
  25. NIBGoldenchild

    Kaepernick still no job

    The two cops who made the arrest, prior to the other 4 showing up, were two white males. You don't know why Freddie ran, I don't either, because he's dead. You don't get to choose whatever motive for a decision you want on a dead person. Furthermore, I don't believe he had any active warrants. Just because you have a record shouldn't mean you should run from police by default. Although, if you speak to Baltimore residents they'll tell you a BCPD officer will kick you a** for looking at them too long. Maybe Freddie didn't want to get his a** kicked that morning. I don't know, I'm surely not going to speculate he was up to no good with zero proof.
