    Forgive me but....

    What tia said. Don't wave beer cans around, or fifths of Jack Daniel's. Be discreet and you'll be fine. Also, if you actually want to get in the lot, get there early. The gates open up at 7AM, and it fills up fast.
  2. And in response to you. I see Cal is blabbering again my friend... Why I don't bother responding to him. I think he's getting messages straight from God now. Hearing voices I fear. Not unheard of BTW.... Steve and me have it exactly right. The Bill of "Rights" was written by men on a sheet of paper- not God. It would be just as realistic to pass the 28th Amendment- "ownership of any firearm is hereby declared illegal". POOF!!!! You do realize that we went down that road with the 18th Amendment, don't you? "After one year from the ratification of this article the manufacture, sale, transportation, or possession of firearms within, the importation thereof into, or the exportation thereof from the United States and all territory subject to the jurisdiction thereof for any purposes is hereby prohibited." Just for fun- to watch Cal have a apoplectic fit.
  3. As I said Steve, something I can't do. I have to keep an eye over on the Browns Board, and it would be too much of a pain to unhide everything they may post over there. Oh, and some of the nuttness that passes for opinion- or facts- here greatly amuses me. I won't get sucked into a debate with anyone who's operating with a few bricks short of a full load anymore. Or at least make a sincere effort not to- unless it's something so totally outrageous it forces my hand. God given right to tote around an AR-15? Please- only because the US government says you can.
  4. Bite me. I saw on a sheet of paper "the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." I doubt God wrote that. When I see something I approve of, I'll give an upvote. Limiting myself to 5 minutes a day, or avoiding it outright- checking on the doings in the nut house. BTW, if I wasn't a Moderator, I'd put 1\2 of this clown show on ignore, including you.
  5. Sophomore slump under Freddie skews that stat. 22 td\ 21 int.
  6. I hate beating a dead horse, but it bears repeating Baker DIDN'T throw passes like Trevor yesterday, and he rarely does. Your out of your damn mind if you think there's any conceivable way Baker could get cut- Eeyore. So just stop, and stop arguing with Tia- you're out of your league there son. His only interception in the Chiefs game came as he was being tackled and trying to throw the ball away. Next Gen Stat of the game: Baker Mayfield finished a perfect 8 for 8 for 151 yards on play-action passes, completed 12 of 19 attempts for 214 yards (and an interception) with a time to throw of 2.5-plus seconds, and completed 5 of 6 attempts for 88 yards against the blitz. BTW- 321 yards passing, 11.5 yard average, 97 QBR- same as that bum Tom Brady- you may have heard of him. Finally- we couldn't stop Mahomes scrambling? For the record, that's the same problem every other NFL team faces when they're playing the Chiefs.
  7. I didn't see this until Tex clued me in... If you need any second opinions- let me know- I'll hook you up with my co season ticket holder Don- who's a retired neurologist... Dealt with this stuff for 30+ years.
  8. I've been to Snowshoe several times when there was snow on the ground. It's a nice resort in the middle of nowhere. And some personal trivia. Remember the Bengals-Chargers deep freeze playoff game? That was nothing. We were at Snowshoe that day on top of the mountain and woke up to a balmy -28 degrees with a howling blizzard that put the wind chill in the vicinity of -70. Guys were getting frostbite in five minutes trying to start their cars. Needless to say, the coldest day I've ever experienced.
  9. Aw, hate to disappoint you- bash Biden to your hearts content. It's SOP around here- and I'm not wasting my time anymore...
  10. One other bit of eagle trivia that you may or may not know... On my first visit up to the far north my pal (Alaska resident since 1975) asked him- "how can I see some eagles"? Answer... "I'll take you to the city dump, they're always hanging out there." According to him, Ben Franklin wanted our wild turkeys to be the national bird, much less of a scavenger than eagles. Reason why in that picture I posted, the semi-habituated flock (not afraid of humans) eagles were hanging out at the fish docks waiting for a handout.
  11. RE: Baker getting cut... What are you smoking? Mayfield had one interception the whole game, he was either trying to throw the ball away or hoping his receiver would come back for the ball. RE: scrambling QBs... Mahomes is probably #2 in the NFL behind Lamar Jackson in scrambling ability, and unlike LJ he doesn't fumble when he runs. tia put it best.. That was a damn Mahomes Hail Mary that he got lucky on. 9 times out of 10 it's knocked down, an interception or uncatchable.
  12. Caught the game from 12:00 in the 4th on... disclaimer... I hate the Raiders, but I hate the Ratbirds more. Now they get another national game on a short week on SNF against the Chiefs at home.
  13. I sort of wonder where all those feathers came from? But tradition, ya know... FWIW I do contribute to a couple Indian Schools. There's one in New Mexico where families in the outback have no running water, and rely on the Mission truck to to supply them.
  14. This is one Federal Law that's sort of stupid as long as you're not harming the birds- shed feathers shouldn't count... More trivia... One of our eaglets croaked when it flew into a power line.. Eagles only look down when they're flying. And the term "eagle eyes" is correct. I have no idea how they measured it- but eagles have 5\200 vision. They can see 200 feet away what we see at five. "Oh give me a home, where the buffalo roam"... As long as they're not on my farm tearing up my wheat field.
  15. Wonder when they'll take eagles off the endangered list? We have at least four living here in Dayton. FWIW, they're not endangered in Alaska. Out hiking up there- there were plenty of those feathers on the ground. I was shocked that you could be fined up to $250,000 for having one. As an aside -those birds had better learn to look where they're flying. More than one has been killed flying right into a wind turbine.

    As financial Institutions say "Past Performance is no guarantee of future results". Basically, a fumble and a botched punt attempt were the difference. That and Mahomes tossing up a Hail Mary that got answered. Assuming we both even get into the playoffs- meeting them again isn't a given. Anyone have the Steelers beating Buffalo yesterday on the road? I didn't. (I'm moderately confident the Bills will end up with more wins than the Steelers) Tampa Bay proved they're not invincible. Lost to the Raiders last year at Arrowhead too. I'll just chalk this one up to our unrivaled bad luck in opening games.

    Kicking woes all ready ?

    Didn't the Hammer actually try a long FG last year? Wouldn't be surprised if he's the emergency backup. Plus, didn't we sign a kicker to the PS? EDIT: yes

    Spin, spin and more spin. Always have to have the last word huh? Go live in your alternate reality Cal. Just hope those space lasers don't set your farm on fire.

    Why I'm done arguing with your rationalizations. Got anything else from those assorted Trump ass kissers? And just fucking stop with your damn "just name one". I did already- at least TWICE- short attention span, I'm not going to repeat myself again- PERIOD. You may need to be checked for memory loss. YOU ARE DAMN OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE. Gotta prove how "right" LOL you are? Great- I've reached the point I don't give a rat's ass anymore about what you may think you know about politics. Or your POV. Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. Your above crap is proof It's damn useless from my POV to waste anymore of my time engaging with your right wing bullshit. I could debunk 90% of it point by point, but I won't waste my time. Dredge up stuff from 2019? Hardy-har-har. Just keep hammering away until the other side gives up. Congrats, you win- but it's a damn hollow victory. When it comes to politics- sorry you're nuts. I'm not the only one with that opinion.

    Good Luck - Blocked

    Spoken like a true paranoid. Let me give you an update.... I had problems with the site crashing a couple days ago. FWIW- Zombo is the only one with Uber Moderator powers who can actually access higher board control. Even he can't figure out why the Board has been experiencing frequent crashes. The problem is- the board "Creator" Stan passed away going on three years ago. He was the only one with enough Website savvy to fix problems as they occurred. This entire site has been running on autopilot since then. Hiring an outside "on call" web expert costs money- something that Kathy isn't willing to do. It's not outside the realm of possibility the entire Browns Board could hit the trash heap sometime.

    Tale of the Tape - Browns vs Chiefs

    I don't know about stealing, but fumbling the ball out of bounds in the end zone is a shit rule. I can live with if it goes all they way past the end line.

    Tale of the Tape - Browns vs Chiefs

    Um Mahomes is one of the more mobile QBs in the NFL- and no one here is saying he's not a great QB either. Only argument is if him or Rodgers are #1. So your OL looks better in preseason playing against vanilla defenses? Where a lot of teams weren't even playing their defensive starters? It gets real on Sunday.

    Believe me Steve- you should lock that Swamp Draining thread and start a new one- it's long outlived it's usefulness.

    Nope Cal- I'm not playing your game for the 4th time because it's a losing proposition. Done it twice, three times in the past- AND "insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result". I'm tired of trying to talk to a brick wall that rationalizes everything away. YOU just can't admit Obama or Biden ever did anything good in their 8 years in office. Those are your opinions Cal- and nothing I could say or point out isn't going to change your mind- so I'm sure as hell not going to try to AGAIN. Oh- BTW- I have read that list. And as I said- it's a bunch of Trump aggrandizement. For the record- your "Greatest President Ever Ever" is rated somewhere near the bottom when Presidential Historians weigh in. So cry in your root beer down in your rabbit hole of alternate reality. https://www.businessinsider.com/historians-rank-trump-among-worst-presidents-us-history-c-span-2021-6 https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/donald-trump-ranked-worst-president-b1875691.html "

    Here ya go.. Unless you want to claim CNN is just totally making stuff up.... But I seriously doubt requesting police protection is phony. Bad enough they want to come after Brad- but threaten his family too? Shades of the Wicked Witch of the West.. "I'll get you- and your little dog too".... https://www.cnn.com/2021/06/11/politics/georgia-raffensperger-family-death-threats-election/index.html https://www.atlantamagazine.com/news-culture-articles/gabriel-sterling-on-death-threats-the-dark-side-and-americas-redemptive-potential/ It's a long article, here's the Cliff note... "Lately, though, Sterlingโ€™s knack for fact-checkingโ€”he regularly bullet-pointed holes in election-fraud claims during press briefingsโ€”has spurred death threats." https://www.cnn.com/2021/05/07/politics/katie-hobbs-arizona-secretary-of-state-death-threats/index.html Oh we can add other folks like the Maricopa County Election board, a Dominion Employee, and a few election workers in other states. Seems some Republicans are sore losers.
