Re: Tokyo 2020 thread

Hopefully some company had a smart lawyer before she signed on the dotted line. Take the money and run should not be an option if she doesn’t want to perform. A couple things wrong with this... 1. She did compete at the Olympics even if she doesn't return for apparatus finals, she still competed. 2...

Re: Tokyo 2020 thread

I agree, mostly. But gymnastics is a sport where if you are not mentally right, you can end up paralyzed. This is where it's a little bit different than a lot (not all) of sports. In baseball you can be off mentally, and you chase Javy down the first base line back home instead of touching the bag ...

I won't pass judgement on Biles as there is no way to know whether the situation was a mental health crisis, or her inability to overcome adversity or face competitive shortfalls. As a human, she deserves all of the space and grace that she wants or needs, but as a multi-million dollar endorsement ...

Earning team gold at the risk of individual gold(s) where the $$$ is made is the likely explanation.

Re: Texas, Oklahoma To Join SEC

From a market standpoint, B1G should try expansion into Texas and South East (Florida?).

From Texas, TCU or Texas Tech of remaining B12 schools (not Baylor).

From Florida, UCF might be a candidate with a large enrollment / alumni base.

Big 12 should pass a rule that schools not with the conference past 2025 are no longer eligible to play for a conference championship. Even if they did, won't affect Texas or Oklahoma. The college playoff will be newly named The SEC Invite when this happens. My thought is make OU and Texas mad so t...

Re: Chicago Bears 2021

Aside from drafting Dazz Newsome, the Bears had already signed veterans Marquise Goodwin and Damiere Byrd, who all play the same position that Miller did. I simply think that they didn't want him in camp. Newsome is a 6th round, rookie pick who is on the PUP list. Byrd and Goodwin are older, less a...

Re: Chicago Bears 2021

Timing is probably because they couldn’t find a trade partner until now for some reason. As far as depth, Miller may have provided some of that, but he showed he wasn’t trustworthy when he threw the punch in the playoff game last year. I will never question a team dumping a head case. Especially wh...

Does the Longhirn network get dissolved or revenue shared with SEC? I doubt the SEC would let Texas make more profit by joining than other teams would.

So, with your last statement about Kellerman you are saying it's because he's black. "I'm not saying, I'm just saying." The situation and argument is way more nuanced than that involving race, gender, and even class. If Smith, had said what I stated about a black player vs an Asian player...

Your explanation is “because he’s black”. I don’t think that ship sails either. Please quote the post where I said that, because I didn't. I just said Smith is a racist, obnoxious, idiot.
