NFT: Let's Bring it back..... IT'S FRIDAY...... You learned....

dep026 : 9/14/2018 8:34 am
What did you learn this week?

1. That despite historic evidence and multiple warnings, people will still refuse to leave their houses during hurricanes and wound up being stranded and needing help.

2. Ereck Flowers best position may be still be Left Tackle. Think about that....

3. There are people who can judge the velocity, trajectory, coordinates, latitude/longitudes of a ball that is tipped at the LOS and be certain of the outcomes if it never was. All from the comforts of their home mind you.

4. I also learned that WNBA finals was this past week, and on another note I realized people actually watched it.

I mean, who the heck watches the WNBA outside of those incarcerated at GTMO?
very educational thread  
giants#1 : 9/14/2018 8:50 am : link
So who won the finals?

I learned that Beckham is a pu$$y for ducking OOB and needs to take on 3 defenders so he can gain a couple extra yards.

And that Reeves was a strong drafter but the coaching sucked. With the incredible Bengals coaching staff, even Bobby Hart is a solid starter!
That Eli

you can break all the rules of a sport that you want, your coach can cheat, you can insult the head official time and time again, and you can throw the biggest tantrum one can have - yet be labeled as hero because your bring out the sex card and now the public brings out the race card as well.

that when john McEnroe throws an epic temper tantrum laced with obscenities it's all in good fun... or when josh hader's racist and homophobic tweets come out it's all forgiven because he was just a teenager or when the convicted pedophile baseball pitcher in Oregon can't get drafted by an MLB club it's a huge injustice

but when serena questions an umpire's warning about coaching in the final match of the US open, something that happens in every match and is never called, the mob comes out (the same mob that vilifies LeBron, Kap, and any other powerful or outspoken African American athlete)

I think your being an asshole for attacking him.

People are allowed to have differing opinions then yours. Other posters aren't crazy because they have different opinions then your own. No reason to attack them.

God damn Bullshit

all I have to say. He stating anyone who disagrees with Serena's actions and compared them to other situations is just a disgrace.

But then again, some people are immune from some comments while others get banned for less reasons.

Bullshit. It was ONE poster where everyone told that poster to get bent regardless what side of the sernea debacle they were on. ONE. Dont generalize others from one persons actions. Grow up already.

Bullshit, making accusations that people are racist isnt having an opinion. But again, you dont call him an asshole for saying people are. Double standard much?
I think the reaction to Serena was the same as with McEnroe  
PatersonPlank : 9/14/2018 1:23 pm : link
(back in the day) or Hader. Both were criticized initially, and then people backed off. Its just seems that some posters have thin skin when it comes to athletes they root for.

Sorry I meant Heimlich. But thanks for the jab.

Yes Lebron James is villified all the time here. He is probably one of the most popular athletes here on BBI. One or two idiot posters say something stupid and get banned for it and you clump them into other posters who disagree with how a professional athlete reacted when she broke the rules 3 times.

Its sad and pathetic. Serena Williams US Open had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with race or any of the athletes you mentioned. But yet you went there and called people racist.

great Job Les, yoou have reached a new low.

You made racist innuendos - and dont say you didnt because of the words villify black athletes and accepted those of white background are ignored.

It was a BS remark and not needed. "Mob mentality of vilifing any black athlete who is outspoken...) buddy, thats as low as it gets. Its uncalled for and should be deleted.

because we had a complaint about it, and have removed a good three dozen comments.

It's one thing to discuss what happened and whether it was fair, or right or not, or even to compare it in historical context; it's another to start attributing things to race or a political stance.

If you make racial judgments or political comments here of any kind, you are violating both the Terms of Usage and the Code of Conduct.

Who have I attacked personally in the serena thread? Outside the person who got suspended for making racist remarks, I thought it was an awesome thread. bw in dc - who I agree nothing with on - I thought it was a great back and forth. No one attacked anyone.

As far the other thread I particpated in on. I gave my opinion. And was attacked for it. I probably should have ignored it but live and learn. But Les's comments are WAY over the line and need to be called out on. He's grouping a bunch of posters when in reality there was 1-2 idiots who said stupid things.
And with that....I am walking away from that topic
