The 4 guys you named have achieved more success in their genres, professional sports, and careers than pretty much every member of these boards combined. Especially Durant and Lebron, these guys are a the top of their games, and know more about playing and succeeding in professional sports than you or I will ever understand. If you don't think that, you're fooling yourself.


You take it so personal

In Topic: If the Texans draft Clowney

If Clowney indeed plays up to his potential and is drafted by the Texans we're in trouble.


(looks at all the Super Bowl rings that Jared Allen, Demarcus Ware and Julius Peppers have)


Oh man...you're right

Or they'll suggest we draft some fans.


Can we also trade some?

Same reason he'd get arguments if he said the Pope was Catholic...


When someone tries to be a sensationalist to get replies, they are not taken seriously. This debate about society being worse off or kids being more disrespectful has been debated on this board in several threads over many years. It's a tired subject.

I agree that it doesn't matter whether today or 20 years ago, teachers shouldn't physically harm the children in any way. Can I say I blame the teacher, no. But he should have more control and handled it different.


I will agree that some "kids today" (I hate that expression) can be rude, selfish and disrespectful. But I don't think it's any different than kids in the 90's or 80's or 70's or 60's and so on. I knew plenty of kids in my generation that were the same way. I also know plenty of adults that are rude, selfish and disrespectful.


My hypothesis is that some people, no matter the age, are a-holes and some are not.
