  1. In Topic: Steeler's Offseason Thread

    Yesterday, 12:04 AM

    As Organized Team Activities (OTAs) commenced for the Pittsburgh Steelers on Tuesday, there was Bryant, more contrite than he had seemed at any point since this “saga” began. He stood in front of reporters and, one by one, let them take their shots. He didn’t deflect, he didn’t “no-comment” his way out of anything.

    He accepted that he was at fault.

    He said that “trust is earned, not given.”

    He understands that he let his team down.

    He claims he is drug-tested two or three times each week.

    He said he sees a therapist twice per week.

    Golf clap, please.

    It’s not that I don’t believe he is sincere. I want to believe. Badly. And to a great extent, I do believe him. And my hope for him is that he is now on the life trajectory he should have been on all along.

    This is the NFL, where weed gets you a longer suspension than knocking a woman unconscious.

    I have personally never agreed that any sports league should be suspending its players for standard criminal justice matters. If a player commits a crime we have a criminal justice system to dispense punishment. Only in the last few years have media whiners made those non-sports matters suddenly matters for additional league punishment.

    Cops are trying to shoot black people? You make it sound like they have a quota to meet. Who glories the Confederate flag? Some back woods rednecks?

    Which party called Barack Obama the first mainstream African American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy?

    There might be more racists in the republican party, but the gap is not as big as you seem to think it is.

    Quota? No. But otherwise ....

    Multiple states and universities use the confederate flag in various ways. South Carolina only changed a year ago because of the church shooting. But rednecks only? No.

    I'm not sure much of anyone called Obama that. Maybe you can remind me.

    The difference between the two parties is that the Republican Party is racist on purpose (sometimes) and racist by accident sometimes, whereas the Democratic Party tends to be pretty much limited to the latter. That's still a pretty big gap. When you find me some voting redistricting cases (democratic) which have been invalidated because of racial motivation I might be willing to even it up a bit more. Or maybe some liberal Jim Crowe laws.

    It does not really make much sense for blacks and hispanics to vote for liberals, as they generally do not vote for their same political ideologies. These groups do not exactly line up with Democrats on social issues. About half are liberal and half conservative, but 95% voted for Obama. I am sure Hilary assumed they would vote for her, but just did not vote at all.

    THey vote Democrat because the Republican party makes them want to vote Democrat.

    Lets assume you are one of those two ethnic groups. Do you:

    (A) wish to vote for a party which consistently tries to prevent you from voting, which consistently doesn't care very much about cops trying to shoot you, and which does things like glorify the Confederate Flag


    (B) vote for anyone else.

    Issues like abortion or climate change don't matter. Its a much more basic thing, and for the last 40 years to Republican Party has consistently taken positions that reject these and other basic things.

    Not from when a Democrat ran things in NYC (Dinkins anyone?).


    New Yorkers, the people who know Trump best, voted against him overwhelmingly. The only other time a President lost his birth and home state was James Polk in 1844.

    7 other Presidents lost their birth state (and birth state can be meaningless, particularly in the modern era). 4 Presidents have lost their state of residence (the other 2 were Nixon and Woodrow Wilson).

    New Yorkers know Trump for exactly what he is. A fast talking con artist, a man who judges people based on the color of their skin, and someone who treats women and the common man very very poorly.

    I find it amusing that the rest of the country forgot what their mothers told them about fast talking New Yorkers.
