    Football and coronavirus

    I answered the survey, and thought that a moronic idea. I live 600 miles away. Many times I have a hard time finding someone to take my 1 extra. What the hell am I going to do with 6 tickets? As for me, I don't plan on any games. They will give you a credit or refund your money.

    Chubb at GA

    Ok, cool. If I am looking for a MD, I am probably looking towards Duke, Stanford, or one of the Ivey's. If I am looking for a football player, I am checking the SEC first. This takes a genius to figure out? I graduated from Florida Law. It has a good reputation. To be honest, I am not sure I like your tone. Just saying

    Not many Vandy fans. You only see them when they are playing a team you want to watch.

    Chubb at GA

    I live in a tri- state area. The Georgia state line is 11 miles from the house. As the bird flies, Alabama is maybe 20 miles over Lookout Mountain. As such, you see a lot of different hats when in a sports bar, thus, I was very aware of Nick. You see a lot of different games, but you are always going to see the Vols, Bulldogs, and the Tide.

    Good study of Wilson

    I thought Wilson was Tom Hanks friend?

    Football and coronavirus

    Face it folks. There will be no football this season, and possibly ever. We haven't found a vaccine for Ebola, or even the common cold. The world has changed. Understand that and it makes it easier. The NFL will fold after this year. At least several of the teams will. Just like thousands of restaurants have closed, you can't keep paying rent, payroll, insurance, etc. if you don't have a steady stream of cash rolling in the door. NFL owners are rich people, but most are pretty leveraged in buying that team and building stadiums. How long to you think they are going to ride it out? A NFL team is a bad investment if you can't play games or host concerts in the stadium you just sunk $600 million in to as your part of a public/private investment.. Sooner or later you are going to see owners cutting their losses. Trust me, several owners are already talking about it and planning the best exit strategy. I don't think there are many buyers for NFL teams at the moment.

    2020 Browns Depth Chart

    My theory is if blocking is what you want, draft a lightweight guard from some smaller school and make him a blocking tight end. I want pass catching guys at TE. Ozzie was never known as a good blocker. Maybe the know it all's should complain about him. LOL Ozzie couldn't block, he sucked. I don't think Ozzie ever threw a block, or was asked to throw a block. Just get in the way for 2 seconds Whatever....

    Good point on the train and social distancing. I am going on the assumption the coast is clear. My feeling is if it isn't safe to get on the train, it isn't safe to pack 65,000 in to a stadium.

    2020 Browns Depth Chart

    I view Hooper this way. He may not be a good blocker, but with our play action attack, he is going to demand coverage and is going to run somebody off the play long enough. What difference does it make, block them off the LOS or run them off the LOS? Somebody has to account for him.

    2020 Browns Depth Chart

    The longer the Clowney saga goes on, I doubt it is going to happen. I keep forgetting about Clayborne. The Falcons are local market TV here, so I see many Falcon games. He has played well. Gets his sacks and double the number of pressures. I think we are going to be very pleased with his addition to the team. He can bring the heat.

    You can find cheap parking. Try the flats. It was up to $15 last season from $10. It's a bit of a walk, but you can also take the waterfront line to the footsteps of the stadium for $5. I usually stay at a Marriott Courtyard out in Middleburgh Heights, near the airport. Last year, after I discovered lots in the warehouse district were charging $50 for parking, I started parking at the Brookpark Rapid station and taking the train downtown. The lot is patrolled and secure, it costs $5 for a day pass, and eliminates a lot of driving after a day of drinking. Walk to the Terminal Tower, ride out to Brookpark, then a 5-6 mile drive to the hotel. That is what I am doing from now on. Cheaper and safer, and really doesn't take much longer by the time you fight you way out of a crowded downtown to get to the interstate.
  14. I wish a few of the "liberal" justices would side with the conservatives once in a while. In this case, I think it a good decision.

    Yep, and this is going to be wave after wave. We can open up some if people act right. Keep space, wear masks, wash hands. It's the new norm. Be a citizen. But, unfortunately, we have a large portion of people who don't give a shit. They don't care about you and I, thus, I'd like to poke their eyes out with my dick.
  17. I agree Larry, you don't shoot to wound. When you make the choice to pull the gun and pull the trigger, you have to go under the assumption that is your one chance. If you don't send it home, you might be the one headed to the grave. I don't think any cop heads out on the top of the shift thinking s/he is going to kill somebody, but I would bet they head out determined they aren't going to be killed. Your wife, husband, kids want to see you alive and well tomorrow. Not in a coffin. Being a cop is a hard job. Nobody really likes you, until they really need you.

    Survey Sunday Flag Day

    I don't know. Given the way things are, what's the point.? I didn't even know they took it. Bangor, Maine and Bismark, ND.

    I saw where Zeke Elliott has tested positive. No way this season is being played.

    Actually, when in college in Gainesville, Florida, there was a little shack on the other side of Paynes Prairie in Micanopy. There were a lot of "nice" girls there. Thanks for bringing back several memories!

    Proper definition male and female

    Males have a penis and testicles. Females have a vagina and uterus. Whatever you were born with, that is what you are. If some want to pretend differently, fine, it still doesn't change the fact.
  24. The history is it wasn't over slavery. It was over states rights. Honest Abe didn't give a damn about the Negro.

    That is why I don't see a season being played. You can't play a season when a team or three can't play for 2 weeks. Football has no mechanism to play make-up games. You play a team once in a season. They don't make 2-3 visits to a city each season where you can schedule a double header to make it up.
