Re: The Racism Thread

There is a "Culture Problem" in many minority communities. Assimilation used to work. Not perfect, but nothing ever is that is run by humans. It is much better than the "Salad Bowl" idea. Now we get the "No culture is better than another" crowd. My answer to that is, "Oh really? So you are telling m...

Re: OT Cable vs. Streaming argument

This is just stunning to me how many people cry about this. They literally think that Teams should provide content to them a prices they want to pay. They think the goal is having the highest ratings instead of maximizing revenues. More proof that Econ and Finance should be mandatory to graduate HS...

Re: Mariners minors. Thread for interesting news and stats.

Yup! But then, many organizations do the same thing. Maybe, for once, we'll get lucky and Marco will need Tommy John? That would make Flexen more valuable.

Re: HOF thread

Who would have thought 20 years ago that the M's would try and pass of a guy who can barely hit .150 as a starting outfielder? Can you say dystopia?

Re: Rumors about Geno extension

Tier Two QB's, and I wouldn't rate Geno higher than that, pull down about $30 million. The Seahawks may be able to get him down to $25 million plus incentives, but I still think I'd go with Lock, save roughly $20 million, and then sign a couple of good, front seven, defensive players.

Re: State of the country

Luckily, I'm old enough to hope I won't be around when the kids who vote now totally ruin the country. Most don't understand the Constitution, why it was created, and the limits placed on government by of the Bill of Rights.

Re: Controversial Harsh idea

Life in prison for a non-violent action is inhumane. Selling a drug is a voluntary transaction between two consenting parties. There is no violence or force involved until the cop shows up. You don't fix drug addiction issues by criminalizing the substances. That never works. It might look like you...
