#6307428 Is This Speaking On Someone's Behalf?

Dude, don't take this the wrong way, but you need to start a fantasy football version of The View.

First of all, it warmed my heart to see seafoam and Brother behave in such a civil manner. Yay to both of you!

 

Second, would a Lamar Miller or Alex Collins be a good offer to the Bell owner who doesn't own Conner?

Everyone loves the free markets when it benefits them, but when it keeps someone who they feel they "own" then it's bad. The Steelers should rescind the franchise tag offer and let him see what he can get on the free market.

 

I just don't like the hypocrisy. Same thing when the banks got bailed out, which largely benefited white males. It's the "privatize profits, socialize losses" mentality that annoys me. Not saying they're the same thing, it's the mentality.

 

As far as the entertainment industry is concerned, are you asking so you can make sure you take me someplace fun on our first date?

Why do you care so much? You are just a jerk member of this site. Let people be and if you don't like the post simply avoid. Wow. You must think your opinion is important that even on things you don't care about you spout off.

 

Eh, it's more of an etiquette thing. Also, his name kind if invited the rebuke.

 

For future reference, if you need trade help, want your team rated, or have a who do I start question, usually people are pretty good about answering here:

#6244112 So Chris Long basically spearheaded the boycot at the White House, Trump says...

Posted by phillygrrl08 on 14 June 2018 - 09:24 AM

One, I didn't see any non-black players kneeling. I did see white players standing with their hands on the shoulders of kneeling black players as a show of support.

 

Two, if you don't see this as a dog whistle the racist right is blowing, then you are the one who is lost. The attitude of trump, hannity et al is "those ungrateful SOBs who are millionaires should be thankful to be paid exorbitantly to play a game in this country." And the poor white people, their base, eat it up.

While you all are getting your panties in a bunch over black players kneeling during the anthem, your Dear Leader had the US flag placed intermittently amongst NK flags. He also saluted a NK general, but keep being outraged at the NFL.

#6238624 anthem ruling

So Trump is the one weaponizing the anthem? I'd say the players are the ones doing that. Trump is weaponizing their kneeling/ disrespect during the anthem. You had it backwards.

 

Trump has mastered the art of weaponizing patriotism. No one in their right mind would let someone who got five deferments, went after John McCain, went after a Gold Star family, went after a grieving military widow, and has yet to visit troops serving overseas define what it means to be patriotic. Trump said to Jerrah that kneeling for the anthem was a winning cause with his base. He doesn't give a crap about the flag or veterans, just how he can use them to further himself

Elsewhere, people are saying the new policy violates 1st Amendment 'Freedom of Speech'.  But those views are misguided. I work for a company. In my job, I teach/train groups, individuals and do marketing events before dozens of people sometimes over a hundred. Are the non-legal eagles really trying to tell me that I have the "right" to spout my political opinions to these students, trainees and groups while I perform my job? And that when my employer tells me that I "can't do so while on the job and that I must just stick to what I am supposed to be doing", that it would be violating my 1st amendment rights?   WHAT NONSENSE.  Such a view is legally incorrect, per the US Supreme Court, multiple times.  
 
The football field during the anthem is the players' workplace, and the owners of the business can control, and always will be allowed to control, what its employees do and say while on the job. My employer can't tell me what to do or say in my own time, but while I am on the job, it can limit what I do and say and that is perfectly legal and within the boundaries of the 1st Amendment. And that has already been stated by the Supreme Court quite some time ago. 
 
Rich729, a friend of mine here is a high school math teacher. So are all those people screaming "violation of 1st Amendment"  honestly telling us that the 1st Amendment gives him the right to spout political opinions in between teaching his class how to factor quadratic equations and the pythagorean theory? I think not. 
 
I am not a conservative republican by the way.  Not even close.  But those people saying this is some kind of violation of free speech are totally wrong. There is no "right" to display your protests or political opinions while you are on the job if your employer forbids it.  After the game... out of uniform... well sure... say whatever you want, kneel whenever you want. If you are a fan in the stands and you want to sit or kneel during the anthem, well go ahead... that is your right (even though it is highly disrespectful of others, IMO).  But if you are a player, coach, equipment manager or even water boy.. you are on the job, my friend, and your employer calls the shots. And the Supreme Court has said so multiple times.
 
So, to the players crying "1st Amendment violation", if you're wearing pads and on the field in front of 70,000 peple, no f'king way. 

 

And that would have been true had POTUS not tweeted about it, called kneeling players SOBs, and said they should be fired because of protests. Now the government is involved and it has become a 1st amendment case.




#6101556 How long is ACL recovery? (IR question re: Wentz)

Posted by phillygrrl08 on 11 December 2017 - 11:33 AM

Typically 9-12 months. AD was an exception not the rule. It's possible he's back by season opener in 2018 but that's if everything goes on schedule

 

I'd IR him
