  1. I've tried to imagine what it would be like to be born into all of THAT . . . there's a number of advantages, obviously, but basically you're put into a box and put on display, like any animal in a zoo. Anything you say or do is recorded & catalogued for future reference. You appear here & there, hither & yon, smile politely and wonder to yourself, "WTF am I doing?!?" And who cares anyway?? At best it's a self-perpetuating, meaningless existence . . . except to say that it continues a tradition that goes back some 2000 years or so. With that in mind I'd like to see Charles & Camilla in a castle with a moat. They deserve it.
  2. Ummmmmm . . . no! If you sew a sock you can't grow it and 'reap' it. Instead it would be better for you to Reap What You Sow.
  3. Methinks Prince Harry agrees with you. According to him none of the royals wants to be king or queen. In fact I read a story about him where he said, in his younger years, he wanted to renounce his royalty and just be a regular person. But, apparently the Queen got a hold of him and shook some sense into him.
  4. And then look at his salary! If he took a substantial pay-cut he'd likely hook up somewhere. But then there's all the distractions that come with him. Bottom line: Too much $$ for too little performance and too much baggage. Why bother?
  5. The ESPN personality then argued that Kaepernick did not inject politics into the NFL, but rather the NFL injects politics by playing the national anthem and "putting pressure” on people to stand. Mr.Kellerman . . . YOU'RE AN IDIOT!!!!!!!! The playing of the national anthem at sporting events is a TRADITION that celebrates the freedoms & goodness of our country, which allows us to have top-notch sporting events. The standing part of the process is called RESPECT, both for the country as well as the anthem . . . something you and millions of others obviously don't 'get.' WTF is wrong with you?!?
  6. I 'get' all of that. However, the article implies that his lack of attendance is an indication of a difference in his 'core values' as opposed to the core values of the team. This will likely figure into any and all future assessments of Beckham's performance, as well as any risk / reward scenarios. Just my opinion.
  7. According to the NY Post it is a big deal with Giants management: http://nypost.com/2017/06/03/odell-beckham-jr-distractions-weaken-giants-longtime-culture/
  8. Reminds me of 'real life' situations I've seen over & over. If an employee quits with no notice the employer may use that as an excuse to drive him under the bus with any potential employers who call. Yet the employer will most certainly terminate an employee immediately for any cause. In Maclin's case it looks like he was blind-sided by this . . . although in his heart of hearts he has to know this is possible at any time, given his age & situation. That's why so many NFL players never actually see the end of their contracts. Too much $$ involved.
  9. He be makin' too much $$ for his age. Just my opinion.
  10. I'd forgotten about that . . . including Spurrier himself. He was actually a really good guy who, like Chip Kelly, simply couldn't make it in the NFL. He later said, (paraphrase) "When I came to the NFL I went to the team that offered the most money. I should have gone to the team with the best situation." Here's a few tidbits of info from his bio: Spurrier was born in Miami Beach, Florida and grew up in Tennessee, where he was a multi-sport, all-state athlete in high school. He is a graduate of the University of Florida, where he was the Florida Gators' starting quarterback for three seasons. Spurrier won the Heisman Trophy in his senior season of 1966, was a consensus All-American in both 1965 and 1966; and he was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame as a player in 1986. Spurrier was drafted in the first round (third overall) of the 1967 NFL draft by the San Francisco 49ers, and played mainly as a backup quarterback and punter from 1967 to 1975. In 1976, the expansion Tampa Bay Buccaneers traded for Spurrier, and he was the team's starting quarterback for most of their inaugural season.

  11. I prefer the "Chuck & Duck" myself. <g> That was Buddy's name for it.
  12. He's an idiot and I'm glad he's now cut off from an NFL paycheck. Eat it, Kaep! Eat it RAW!
  13. Time out from the pissing match . . . sorry if this was posted already but I thought it correctly summed up the situation:
