    USMNT Falling

    Since the issue is framed in terms of equal pay, the actual equation should be "Equal pay for equal value created." Women's Soccer doesn't come close to creating equal value. Women's Soccer simply isn't that popular. There is sort of a quasi "Labor Theory of Value" in play here. The idea is that...

    OT: Super Bowl halftime show

    It was awful. Fortunately, this is why God invented the mute button.

    Will Norwich go the way of our ACC bid?

    MLB wants long term stability in franchising, certainty in quality of facilities, and geographic rationalization. I think mostly they want to stop paying for players who have no realistic chance of making the major leagues. These are all reasonable concerns. I'm not sure why an expenditure of...

    2019-2020 Bowl Game Thread

    Cyclones. Don't besmirch the Hawkeyes by confusing them with that lesser University in Ames.

    Proposal “Circulating” Around CFB That Would Expand Playoff To 8 Teams

    The only practical difference between the two proposals is the identity of the eighth team. The five P5 champions are virtually always in the top 8. The two at large candidates will naturally come from the top 8. So the only difference is this. Do you take the last team from the top 8 as well or...

    Proposal “Circulating” Around CFB That Would Expand Playoff To 8 Teams

    Memphis and Cincinnati are pretty evenly matched. I have two games to prove it. Do you remember the game between Ohio State and Cincinnati? What Ohio State did to Cincinnati could probably be prosecuted under international humanitarian law. If LSU is as good as OSU, do you think LSU would have...

    Proposal “Circulating” Around CFB That Would Expand Playoff To 8 Teams

    Just take the top eight. Consider this year under such a scheme. The play-offs would consist of the five P5 champions, Georgia, Baylor, and Wisconsin. That's a reasonable selection of the best eight teams in college football. The scheme suggested in this thread would require Memphis to replace...

    Bouknight charged with evading responsibility, interfering with police and more

    I'm basing it on the totally of factual events reported about the event that night. They all lead to one inexorable conclusion. Will it ever be proved in court? No. Because he ran away from the scene. He showed consciousness of guilt by running away from the scene. He manifestly commited a crime...

    Bouknight charged with evading responsibility, interfering with police and more

    I'm not a child to be taken in by foolish deceptions. I'm not a defense lawyer bound to distort the truth in the interest of my client. I'm not a judge bound to apply the necessary presumptions of the court. I can use my eyes and my brain. People run from the cops when they think they are going...

    Bouknight charged with evading responsibility, interfering with police and more

    Yes, he has been appropriately charged. But the reason he has been appropriately charged is that in a very real sense he beat the system. He evaded arrest so he could sober up. He shouldn't get credit for that decision. However a lot of people on this board are giving him credit for that...

    Bouknight charged with evading responsibility, interfering with police and more

    The reason the DUI case can't be proven is that he fled the scene to avoid being tested. Which last I saw was a crime. So people are using the consequence of his crime to give him the benefit of the doubt about DUI. Interesting moral logic. Just looks like consciousness of guilt to me. But...

    Bouknight charged with evading responsibility, interfering with police and more

    There is what you know and there is what you can legally prove. He was out drinking late at night, smashed up a car, and then fled the scene when confronted by police. What unites all those facts into a coherent story? Alcohol. Oh, yes, the cop said he smelled alcohol. Can DUI be proven in...

    That's a reasonable penalty for DUI? In what unuverse?
