I could be wrong, but I believe he’s being sarcastic and simply showing how rediculous it is to compare what luck does with steel workers.
Football in the South in particular has long had only a partial veneer at best over the days when black Americans toiled for their white masters. While most of them would never admit it in public, that dynamic remains a big part of the sport’s draw for many.
The Major sport that’s hardest on your body, is far and away the worst for your brain (and long term risks), but pays far and away the least and guarantees nothing in contracts (and has a history of fucking over it’s retirees) is having a problem with players walking away from the game.
Andrew Luck’s retirement will only increase the primal urgency of Football Men to find True Football Believers to play football, so that they don’t ever question their faith in it.
And it just reaffirms what I would be thinking if I were Luck: I’ve gotten plenty of money, I’m a smart dude who has interests outside of football, and the NFL/Colts/Indy are such a trifecta of toxicity that I’m better off exchanging CTE and more money for lots of money and some sweet, sweet travel.
If I were Luck, I’d…
The deliberations were two hours and the foreman said they didn’t believe one word the woman said.
You’re just realizing that women can be incredibly nasty and backstabbing towards other women on juries (or presidential elections)?
I’m sorry, but I’m pushing back on any idea that Pelinka is “shrewd.” If anything, this is just further evidence he has no idea what he’s doing. The stories of Dwight being a miserable teammate are innumerable. Just one that was memorable, from Zach Lowe in 2017:
Rehashing the past that lead to Gawker’s downfall is the “but her emails” complaint—100% true & valid, but ultimately not constructive. It is was it is and at least this avid GMG reader hopes that things stay as close to the same as possible. Thank you, Megan for fighting the good fight and hopefully the morons who…
The result of the Neymar Sweepstakes could very well determine the next half-decade of European soccer.
Ya know what takes even more effort than telling your kid no? Actually discussing internet safety protocols with them as soon as possible. These safety issues don’t magically go away when they become an adult. Everything you teach them will still be relevant when they become old enough (in your eyes) to get a smart…
Gonna guess you don’t have kids, so let me break it down
I think the funniest part of the Mercedes Illuminated star is that you can only get it if you cheap out on options that really matter, like adaptive cruise and automatic emergency braking. You are literally making your MB shittier from the factory for the sake of adding the “look at me” emblem.
Meanwhile the Amazon has been on fire for nearly a month and the ice caps are melting... I wonder why?
if the system they have in place for ‘uploads’ allows for gross underpayment of royalties to the artist- yes.
Oooh. You’re so cool and edgy.
What a fuckin loser. I mean if anything, if you want to have a team that’s gonna win, then you should be supporting your players, not antagonizing them. Especially brother to brother and especially doing it for the owner. Dude definitely isn’t gonna have the respect of the team, but I suppose they would rather lose…
I’ve seen more road rash from someone falling off a bicycle while stopped.
