I don't see the controversy here. Frat hangs an off color joke from the front of their frat house, college tells them to take it down. So what?

In Topic: Greg Olson's Playcalling

24 August 2015 - 06:58 AM

The thing about play-calling is, if the plays work, people think it was good play calling.   If they don't work, people blame the play-caller.  As if a different play would have worked better, when usually it's just execution that makes a play work or not work. 


Besides, in preseason, you call plays for the purpose of evaluating players.  A lot of times, in preseason, you call plays you wouldn't call in the regular season. 


For a guy in the stands to evaluate the play calling, when they have no idea what play was called and whether it failed due to execution or "bad strategy" is kind of ridiculous.  

In Topic: Scobee or Myers?

Keep Scobee.  Myers looks just as good, but you never know what will happen when the pressure is on and the game is on the line.  Also, who knows if Myers is subject to the kind of slump a kicker can have when they just for no reason lose their stroke.  Scobee is pretty steady.  


Keep Scobee- a.k.a. "The Colt Killer."  

In Topic: Oops Hillary did it again, Clintons are liars

I keep banging the table.   It's not the emails.   The emails are a sideshow.  It's the money! 


The money!  


The money!  


The money! 






If I were Hillary Clinton, I would be glad people are focusing on the emails, because it distracts everyone from the REAL scandal.   The MONEY!

The emails are a side show, Bengazi is a side show, the main event is the money.   Follow the money.   The $500,000 speaking fees, the millions in contributions to the Clinton Foundation, the way the Clintons went from "dead broke" (in HRC's own words) to filthy rich during the last decade.  Follow the money- who contributed, and who had business before the State Department at the time they contributed.  






The headline on the website Pravda trumpeted President Vladimir V. Putin’s latest coup, its nationalistic fervor recalling an era when its precursor served as the official mouthpiece of the Kremlin: “Russian Nuclear Energy Conquers the World.”

The article, in January 2013, detailed how the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom, had taken over a Canadian company with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal made Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers and brought Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain.

But the untold story behind that story is one that involves not just the Russian president, but also a former American president and a woman who would like to be the next one.


As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.

And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.
