  1. With the innocent until proven guilty part, I want to share a few thoughts. I am an adamant believer of innocent until proven guilty, I believe that if you can't provide sufficient evidence someone is guilty they should walk. From my understanding, a jury is not supposed to vote based on whether or not they believe a person is guilty or not, but only vote guilty if there is sufficient evidence of the person being guilty, I believe that is how it should be. I also do think everyone should have a jury trial option. However, the photos are pretty good evidence to me. Granted, I don't know every f
  2. I agree with the part about hitting a child being worse than hitting an adult, but I think the bolded part should be left out, that shouldn't be factored in, that doesn't make it any more ok to do imo.
  3. I agree to an extent with you about the double standard. Taking nude pics of a guy isn't any worse than taking nude pics of a girl. Of course, the degree of injury caused does matter as well. However, I do agree that if Rousey were to cause/try and cause the same degree of injury that it appears Hardy did, it would be hypocritical to have a problem with Hardy and have no problem with that. I say agree to an extent, because most of the time a women's punch won't be as hard as a man's, and genders have different bone structures and things like that so I can see people thinking that should be tak
  4. Randle was a good back from what I've seen I don't think he should have been cut based on performance. Good speed and explosion, a good home run threat and I remember a play where he did a good job getting yards while being tackled against a good leg tackle, I like those plays, they can be very effective Dallas does have a great line, however without Romo it seems their run game suffers. Randle averaged over 6 yards a pop last year. Romo played most of the Philly game but Philly's defense I believe has shown to get the better of Dallas's line. If legal issues are being factored in, then Hardy
  5. This shouldn't happen, that's not cool. Players should perhaps wear the visors like LT did, something to protect their eyes. If it does happen all the time, that should change imo.

  7. I agree, didn't like that. I could live with the Undertaker vs Lesnar, the ending wasn't so bad for me. I think they may be playing it off as a 'strategic tap', knowing the ref wasn't watching trying to get Lesnar to break his hold. The Stewart thing was terrible though, it was a title for title match and you have it decided by an interference, really? I will say though, that I think they are doing MUCH better than before. The whole 'authority vs good guys' thing was getting WAY too old, where it was basically two sides, and the 'mighty powerful bad authority interfering with matches and stack
  8. Agreed, a player could get injured in a practice. Heck, some guys may even manage to get knicked up in a non contact practice, some guys get knicked up playing basketball. I get that extra contact increases the odds, but the bottom line is that if you want to play a game that involves contact then you will probably be involved in....contact. Preseason games serve a purpose for seeing how rookies and non rookie guys that don't often get playing time perform in games. For guys that do get playing time in the regular season, it can serve as a 'conditioning', help get guys into 'playing mode'. It'
  9. I don't think QBs 'make' receivers, I think it's more that they allow receivers to expand what they can do, and that some offenses do a great job of using receivers well. I'd say NE and NO have been the best at recovering from the loss of skill players, but I think GB has shown they can do it pretty well also.
  10. The Niners managed the 5th defense in the NFL with a lot of injuries last year, I think Vic Fangio has proven he can do it without a roster stacked with big named stars. Quinn though, hasn't proven he can do that. Granted, he hasn't failed at it either, he just hasn't been tested. It is interesting that 2 great defensive minds are going to 2 teams who were terrible defensively last year.
  11. Freedom of speech doesn't mean freedom from people judging your speech, in fact it implies the opposite is true, as 'judgmental' speech is a part of it. I know you didn't mention freedom of speech, but I figured I'd throw it out there because people often use 'freedom of speech' as a defense when people judge what they say. As for Josh Robinson, perhaps HOW he said it was what caused more of a reaction. Adrian Peterson said he didn't support gay marriage I believe, as did David Tyree. It was talked about, but people didn't seem to vilify them too strongly. AP said he didn't support it, Tyree I
  12. Glad they did it, good for them taking a stand. Let's be honest here, this is not likely to hurt the team, or the NFL very much. The owners will likely still be rich, the team will probably make a lot of money still. Julian Edelman put a rainbow over his facebook profile, but I doubt the Pats will lose a lot of money over it. Him doing it will probably have little to no bearing on how much they throw to him. People love football, it is hard to stay away when your a fan. I doubt enough fans will actually buoycott the team over this, especially considering the area the team is from where a good
  13. I wonder how the Bears defense will do with Vic Fangio, the Bears defense is terrible by NFL Standards imo, that will be a tough job for him to try and improve. What could work in their favor is that the 49ers defense that Vic Fangio coordinated played their division rivals the Packers offense pretty well while he was in San Fransisco. They tackled very well in San Fransisco, with a defense seemingly largely centered around the linebackers that wrack up a lot of tackles, reading the play, taking good angles and etc. Forcing an offense to make post snap adjustments can be key as well. When an o
  14. Kaep seems to play unusually well against Green Bay. I believe he threw for 412 yards on the Packers defense WITHOUT Crabtree, and their pass offense without Crabtree was usually terrible, it may have even been worst in the league terrible. In part, it was probably teams adjusting better to the option. IMO Russell Wilson adjusted well, and learned how to make teams pay for devoting extra attention to stopping his runs, it became a 'pick your poison' sort of thing, where he didn't have to necessarily torch you with his runs for his running ability to be helpful. He seems to take advantage of pa
  15. Pretty much. The courts are not likely to see him as a victim. Courts will only see you as a victim if it was a necessary act of self defense, as in actually needing to do it to prevent further harm from coming to yourself. One time a guy punched me in the ear, and then backed away after doing it. I walked towards him, he continued backing away, I eventually stopped my pursuit. If I had chased him down to punch him, that would probably not count as self defense, because it probably would not be seen as necessary to defend myself. Revenge shots aren't seen as self defense. That was between two
