  1. Joe Thomas has retired

    Joe Thomas may be the biggest lapse in judgment in NFL history. The Browns wasted a top draft, trade possibilities and money on a left tackle that protected no one for a team that won more than 5 games once in his career. When the team finally looks like they are making moves, he retires. There is no denying that Thomas might go down as one of the best LT in NFL history but his story mirrors why the Browns suck. Joe you got paid, never had to play under pressure and will retire beloved in Cleveland....wish they would've traded you to the Broncos for a 2nd rounder in 2015
  2. Shelton traded to the Patriots

    I wish someone could explain this
  3. I think the tariffs are a good idea. You have to see the reaction from the global economy and adjust. At some point we must begin to transition more towards producers and less from consumers.
  4. 30k 8k 8k

    Incredible accomplishment by the best all around player in NBA history
  5. Okay kiddies here's your inevitable gun control thread

    It's easy to talk about solutions when one, stricter gun laws, is off the table and un-American. I think most rational people believe that violence, absent firearms, is a complex issue with many facets and gun violence is no different. The problem is the chasm between "love it or leave it" and "guns are bad mmmkay"
  6. Not surprised this time of year and with this crop. No one jumps out at me as the next Peyton Manning. What is worse is for the past two seasons QBs were passed on because this QB class was loaded, guess the analysts meant drunk.

    Unfortunately I was the bully, never physical, but verbal. I was, and many would say still am, a douchebag. Classic middle class athlete growing up in a blue collar town. But my shortcomings as a human being doesn't mean we should normalize bad behavior. Yeah if someone I picked on in High School came up and punched me, things would have been different but they would have been different if my peers would have called me on my nonsense, if an adult cared or if a person like myself connected with a younger me.

    Why should school age kids have to fight bullies? This is so &#$*ed up. School should be a place for learning and not one where a 15 year old needs to assault a 18 year old to do it.
  10. Okay kiddies here's your inevitable gun control thread

    What were the popular weapons in 1789? Can't we simply have a logical discussion without rabid nationalism. The brilliance of the US Constitution is it was never meant to be absolute, you have the Bible for that. The authors had the idea that governance must change with the times and although not easy to do, it is necessary. I have no issue with private citizens owning guns but believe intelligent people can agree on moderation.

    I know you like to argue for the sake of arguing but this is a new low.
  12. Okay kiddies here's your inevitable gun control thread

    No I think the justification it’s no worse for society than alcohol, so legalize it and tax it.
  13. No this doesn't go in the NBA board

  14. Okay kiddies here's your inevitable gun control thread

    Gun control advocates are too quick to act as if banning certain guns or background checks will solve the problem and gun rights advocates drape themselves in the flag and act as though any discussion on limiting gun access means communist Russia is our next evolution.
  15. It's not okay, it's fantastic. If a country is able to sway the direction of another to their benefit without war that is great. The problem is when you are the country being lead around by your nose. Frightening all the patriots in here not more outraged with one of our main rivals affecting the outcome of our presidential election. Republican jesus, Reagan, is turning over in his grave. If this happened in 1982 we may have gone to war, at minimum Republicans would have been losing their schit.
