IMO - The NFL is in a world of hurt

This coming from a liberal guy who loves football.

Over the past five years I have noticed that my NFL viewing has dropped off. Understandable at first, I always liked college more than the pro game. I live on the "liberal" West Coast, The OC to be specific, and I always was amazed on how the NFL could thrive without a team in the LA market.

The arrogance of the owners, and the League in ignoring the second largest market always intrigued me. And there never seemed to be any blow back. Now I think the arrogance is catching up with the League.

If your plan is to basically tell a major market to fuck off, because we have something you want, then you have business case. If you tell a major market to fuck off while the other markets question why are we subsiding this shit, then you have an issue.

Rather than the LA market being used as a leverage for other cities, we are approaching a point where the other cities will question why are concessions being granted to the NFL.

NBC News email contact.

I have to take a break before sending mine, I think fourteen fuck you Chuck in one paragraph may be over the line.


What is with all this painting talk?

Go to Lowes or Home Depot, spend $2.99 on a sample bottle and try it out.

It is friggen grey, pick a damn shade.

There's something happening here - and I think it is being driven by E. Warren

I couldn't figure out why Ryan is talking about poverty, and why Rubio is being less dickish, by Republican standards, about Gay Rights. This is basically the last week prior to the start of mid term elections. August is vacation month, so why the softening of messages now?

Only one logical explanation, the polling numbers are showing that Republicans are heavily disliked. The populist message is polling strong and the tools are trying to triangulate.

I am more confident than three months ago that Dems will hold the Senate and take the House.

1. The Republican Bullshit won't fly.
2. They will have the weekly blowups, i.e., Bundy Ranch, BENGHAZI, Woman can block pregnancy if raped.

Fuck You Tony Dungy

You can't defend Michael Vick's return to the NFL based upon his talent, then years later claim Michael Sam may be a distraction and suggest it is a bad decision for the Rams.

You my man, are a fucking bigot.

Don't let the media spin this shit topped with a bit of whipped cream as a chocolate sundae

It is a pile of shit!

The Repubs just lost the Majority Leader and their Senate leader is in a fight.

The Pubbies are eating the shit Sundae of hate they created.

If this was reversed the media was creating the meme already, such as, perhaps the Democrats came out in force to oust Cantor to set up a referendum on Guns.

And before someone posts that may not be accurate, that is the point, the media would have created a meme to put the Dems on defense.

Breaking. Shooting at Seattle Pacific University

Just got text from kid.

Edit to add

SEATTLE -- At least four people have been shot at Seattle Pacific University and a suspect is in custody, Seattle police said.

The incident happened just after 3 p.m. near the intersection of 3rd Ave. West and West Nickerson Street. Police report two victims were at Otto Miller Hall.

SPD says one person was in custody on the SPU campus and that officers and medics were on the scene. SPU officials report the campus was on lockdown and police are still searching campus for any potential additional suspects.

The situation is still fluid and more details will be posted as they become available.

O.K. I am usually fairly astute, but Thom Hartman made a comment tonight about shit for brains

After getting the August 6th PDB, W never returned to DC until after the terrorist attacks.

Now I knew he spent the month of August in Crawford, just never put it together that he ducked out for almost two more weeks.

I think the Northwestern Football team Unionizing tactic is incorrect.

A much better approach to getting compensation would be having all Red State minority athletes refuse to play for Red State colleges.

Basically boycott the entire Southeast Conference, Oklahoma, Texas, Nebraska, Florida, Florida State, etc. Recruits could then take their talents to West Coast, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, New York, MA schools. In three or four years of serious beat downs the sports crazed SEC, Texas, OK, schools will be offering 50 percent of the revenue to get the players back.

OK DUers, now you have pissed me off!

You made me waste my time to Google Kate Upton. A MODEL! Hell, let's go back to Christie bashing.
