    Tony Romo next on cancel list

    Romo said Brady should prostitute his wife for something that happened during a game. That comment gets Romo called out as saying some wildly dumb shit. I don't think it's gone any further at this point, mainly because Romo doesn't rate to Brady. Something something Cancel culture

    Tony Romo next on cancel list

    More comedy out now than at any point in history. There's this new thing called a podcast - perhaps you've heard of it. Romo's comment, however.. wasn't funny in any way. Pretty sure you don't want to analyze the "joke" structure or consider the setup.. because there wasn't any.. because he didn't workshop it.. and so it didn't land. Nobody's stopping anybody from "Doing Comedy." People are, however, not supporting people who aren't funny.. because there's more than enough people who are actually talented who are also constantly putting out new material. This, by the way, is the actual issue with every public person who ever complains about how "They're Cancelled" or "They Can't Say Something" -- no, instead of wasting that breath, that public person could easily just said whatever they felt instead of interjecting the nonsense about how they can't. But that public person knows their audience will in fact drop because of stupidity...You know, like how an actual free market does and should respond to nonsensical BS. It isn't some imposed external force, it's the potential audience actually responding with their $$. This is why people whining about "cancel culture" are actually saying "I think I should get to keep doing ridiculous shit but experience no consequences"

    Over their life to date, Giselle has earned 5x more as a model than Romo did as a football player.. And Brady comes in at 2.5x Romo's earnings. This thread is today's example where the phrase "cancel culture" is short for "Someone experiences actual consequences when they get caught doing stupid shit".

    Baker Mayfield

    I think Baker is fine. He's top10 overall and above Dak in AY/A at 8.5 vs Dak's 8.4. That's addressing how deep the shots are and if he's hitting them. By way of comparison, Darnold's AY/A was solid weeks 1-3 and was something like 1.5 vs Philly... which definitely matches the eye test, Darnold has been abysmal since week4.

    Me too. The reason I have been going hard is that looking for "one person" is too simplistic because it misconstrues the situation to the benefit of the people who are in fact responsible.

    Multiple people in this thread have attempted to blame only one person.. "the armorer". The thing each of you are missing is.. IF that was the case, that one person SHOULD HAVE BEEN FIRED THE WEEK BEFORE. A different gun that same armorer said was cold fired not one but TWO live bullets.. luckily nobody got hurt in that incident but that's gameover on an actual safety-first set. Who precisely is responsible for NOT firing the armorer.. at the time of event #1? [and that two-live-bullet incident was NOT event #1] The boss: Alec Baldwin. And why did Baldwin not fire the armorer one week before this incident? Because he..... was OK with a set that wasn't concerned about worker safety. Yes, the armorer was incompetent.. but once it's documented the armorer is incompetent AND YET IS NOT FIRED.. now the responsibility is on the person who doesn't take action to install a responsible armorer. There is no excuse -- Yes, it would have taken longer to find a replacement.. Yes, that replacement would have shut down the set as a condition of employment to change processes 100%. What's the correct response? Suck it up, buttercup -- the set is unsafe and that needs to change immediately. As in every industry, bosses do not care one iota about worker safety --> Worker safety and worker pay are the two reasons people form unions, and this set was terrible at both, as described in more detail in my links above. That's why the portion of the crew that was IATSE walked off the set 6 hours before this incident.

    As an actor, Alec Baldwin trusted the armorer like you're supposed to. As an executive producer, Alec Baldwin is on the hook for hiring decisions which led to this. He acted out his Jack Donaghy character from 30 Rock. Baldwin is responsible for refusing to stop after the multiple instances of "near-miss" lack of gun safety prior to this.. see my previous post. Here is a twitter thread detailing what should have been done - from an actually safe movie armorer. Baldwin's desire to squeeze cash by not either (1) spending time to train staff on appropriate safety before set days with any potentially dangerous situations or (2) stopping production until safety was installed AFTER multiple instances had been documented are the cause of this. The part of the crew who were IATSE walked off due to the safety concerns under 6 hours before this occurred. Baldwin the producer ignored the safety concerns and kept the set going with scabs. Under a week ago a gun the same armorer had declared "cold"... fired 2 live rounds. That should have led someone to ask the question "What if one person signing off isn't enough" -- among others such as "Why does nobody verify that a gun is clear on this set?" And that culture [the approval, implementation, & sustainment of multiple processes that exist to ensure worker safety] is the responsibility of Baldwin.

    Watching a college game, question

    I hope nobody lost a bet and forced themselves to watch Penn State-Illinois in its entirety. 10-10 after 60 minutes, 9 OT's and the incompetence is staggering.. Illinois gets the upset but everybody loses.

    Horrible, horrible, senseless tragedy. Live ammo being anywhere near a gun on set is truly indefensible. Also, some clarity on events: 1) At least one of the camera operators complained last weekend to a production manager about gun safety. 2) Baldwin’s stunt double accidentally fired two rounds Saturday after being told that the gun was “cold” — lingo for a weapon that doesn’t have any ammunition, including blanks. 3) No investigations into what happened at either of the above two. No safety meetings. No assurance that it wouldn’t happen again. All the production team wanted to do was rush. 4) Kathy had been advocating for safer conditions for her team and was tearful when the camera crew left. Daily Mail's article includes the possibility that the weapon was being used for target practice. The point I'm making by getting into the details is that this really should not be seen as a "shrug, things happen, life has risk" moment.. Basic, known, routine firearms safety precautions do exist [were created after the Brandon Lee incident] but were intentionally ignored on this set.. all to save the money it would cost to spend more time on crew safety.

    Discord meet up

    And if anyone ever thinks there's "Only One Story of History," ask them to reconcile three different authors' military history books on world war 2 regarding any one day's men lost / tanks knocked out of the other guy / places marched by one specific division etc. They're all different.. but none of them are intentionally lying..
