I have a Lions Suh jersey if you want it.
Fuck him. Never wanted to be a Lion in the first place. Hope it will turns out like Grant Hill leaving.
No thanks. Getting a Dolphins one
This started in tears.
Shit. Bradys fucked now
This thead about Suh reminds me of what the NFL and the AZ Cardinals had to go through with regard to their MLK holiday controversy.
Everyone in the media got it wrong, including this one.
I'll try to explain what happened. Stick with me, I'll keep it as simple as possible.
There were two ballots on the measure:
- Choice A) Add MLK day, but get rid of Columbus Day (no change in taxes)
- Choice B) Add MLK day, but keep Columbus Day (and authorize tax increase to pay for additional holiday for state workers)
Voter # 1 comes along and says "Yes, I want to add MLK day, but no need to raise taxes... so I'm going to vote Yes to replace Columbus with MLK and vote No on the other one"
Voter # 2 comes along and says, "Yes, I also want to add an MLK holiday, but I don't think it's fair to get rid of Columbus Day. So I'm going vote No on the first one and Yes on the second one"
See what happened? Each "Yes" vote automatically including a "No" vote for the opposing ballot. The "Yes" votes were splint.
Next comes Voter # 3, a very, very small percentage who says, "I don't want to add any MLK holiday and I'm going to vote "No" for both ballots".
That's all it took for both measures to be voted down. If there was just one measure, "Add MLK holiday, Yes or No?" it would have passed by a huge, huge margin. Instead the entire state got branded as racists "who would rather go to work if it means honoring a black guy".
The media completely got this wrong and it continues to this day.
All the talent in the world... too bad he's a classless tool on the field.
That stomping on defenseless players when they're on the ground is bush league shit.
wait til he does it to Brady
I'm not gonna lie, I'd be okay with that.
As long as he's not unduly injured by it.
Guarantied 50+ Mill?
Gemmie a pen.
You wish he was on the team you root for.
I don't. He doesn't fit in a 3-4.
