  1. Another difference between the two: OBjr after the catch acted like he does that every single day. Pryor acted like it was the first time he'd ever done that.
  2. Yeah, I agree the Zeke suspension for the domestic violence accusation alone isn’t justified. Like I mentioned, I don’t think the NFL would ever admit it but my hunch is that this is considering all of the other off the field problems Zeke’s had.
  3. I understand where you guys are coming from. And I agree that the NFL has a really bad track record with how they handle punishments. But a counter argument to “he was innocent in the courts” is if you considered the OJ Simpson case today. Obviously, Zeke’s case is very different (the suspension for the domestic violence investigation alone isn’t justified in light of the publicly available facts. I think the NFL won’t admit it but I think the other stuff off the field is what led to 6 games). I’m mentioning OJ Simpson being allowed to walk despite a lot of overwhelming evidence. If he was an active player today and his case played out, what would you have the NFL do? The way I look at it is that the NFL is a private organization. They are well within their rights to suspend or remove someone at their will so long as they are within the limits of the law. For example, I have plenty of friends who’ve worked in the private sector for a company where simply sleeping with an intern will lead to an automatic suspension and a warning that doing it again would lead to termination. That person wouldn’t have broken the law. They just broke the company’s own code of conduct and rules. Those companies aren’t even hiring people for high profile jobs. And their employees aren’t making millions of dollars and in the public eye. I also used to work for the government. There are definitely things you could have done in the past, things you could do in the hiring process, and things you could do while employed that could be perfectly legal but also result in either not getting the job or being terminated.
  4. Umm guys, can you please stop talking about Dallas? It's kind of embarrassing how much they're in our heads. We clearly have nothing to talk about with the Cowboys. There's literally no reason. There's been no reason at all. And no reason to believe they won't repeat as Super Bowl Champs.
  5. If these players don't understand that this is a business, we have an extremely mentally weak team. I expect Carson to not let this linger beyond this year. And if Darby is the corner we're expecting him to be, people will forget all about Matthews when we start winning games.

    She might not be able to control the others as well. But in general, her strategy was pretty terrible. "They have all the food we need." *Burns food with dragons* She should have been more strategic. Should have used Drogon to break the Lannister line and let the Dothraki clean up the rest and preserve the food that she said she needed.

    I think what helps this theory a bit more is how Daenerys seems to be losing her mind a little bit

    This is what makes me thing this whole thing is about Jon Snow's story. The rest are just role players/impediments. A Song of Ice and Fire. Jon is essentially in both families.

    DUI is definitely worse than possession of weed. And substantially worse. I won't say that for certain he intended to drive while drunk. I can say from one specific personal experience when I went home to visit parents who live in the suburbs. I drove out to a bar to meet friends from high school. I have lived in a city since freshman year of college. I don't exactly have a ton of experience with having to drive to go out at night. At the end of the night, I walked out to my car and I was thinking about whether or not I should drive. I wasn't exactly sure so I just wanted to sit for a few minutes in my car and after about half an hour of just sitting there and listening to a podcast in my car, I just ended up calling an Uber. Luckily for me, I was probably no where near the limit and I also didn't have a police officer come knocking on my window. We can agree that driving drunk puts lives at risks. His own and the lives of others. Can we agree that actually driving and getting booked for a DUI is worse than sitting in your car and sleeping and getting booked for DUI? Can we agree that Hand wasn't driving drunk? Can we agree that despite your insistence that he "intended to drive while drunk", we don't know that to be the case for sure and that context is important? Can we agree that by simply sitting in his car, there was no intent to do anything bad?

    To be honest, a lot of you arguing for a suspension for Hand sound a lot like people arguing for mandatory minimum sentences for minor criminal violations. Sentencing with no context at all just based upon the crime committed to the letter of the law. Something that a good portion of people in Alabama support but not something I expected people from other many parts of the country to support. Maybe for them it's just this case because it's college football and it's sport and it's the other team. Then again, people are treating policy like it's a sport and as though people are on teams.
