I don’t think anyone would suggest Bush was anything but a failure as president, however, its a bit much to put the entirety of the errors of the American bureaucratic engine on one man. And its certainly a step too far to label him a war criminal. Read more

Generally, I’m in the camp of being respectful to folks when you see them out and about, but you better believe I’m dumping my drink on this lady if I ever run into her! I will also judge you if you don’t join in and let her taste your drink as well....

Man, there’s a reason boxers always keep their guard up.....any random shot can take you down if it gets you in the right spot.  And these days, you never know who spends 5 hours a week in an MMA gym.

The real story here is whether Disney can get their S#$% together fast enough to restart these franchises without losing the creative talent behind them. I mean, that’s the clear reason for the Netflix decision and timing — they don’t want to build franchises just to hand them over to Disney as it launches its Read more

But never tell a black person—whose ancestors built “the best country in the world” forfree.99—to “go back” as a consequence for addressing equitable treatment.” Read more

First, calling this compensation “customary” is silly — being a pro caddie is akin to being a pit crew member in auto racing; these are highly specialized folks, typically pretty accomplished golfers themselves, with skills that demand the 10% share of the winnings for their contribution to that effort. And they’re Read more

This reads a lot more like the Luxury Tax isn’t a salary cap....the tax threshold is 40% above median payroll? Teams don’t need to be concerned about payroll dollars because they can sub vets for cheap, controllable prospects? More than half the league is $75M under the tax? This all sounds like the tax isn’t a Read more

First, lets back up — both Machado and Harper could sign today for deals that would place them among the largest contracts in league history, but both have set reported minimum bars at $300M contracts which would be the richest deals in MLB history. Rumors abound suggest 8-year, $240M deals are on the table....so Read more

Bah, I think it will actually be good for him. Guessing (hoping) it will be similar to Matt Harvey’s trade to CIN -- less opportunity/temptation to party, wake up call that you need to change to get a FA contract, team that needs/appreciates your talent, and less media spotlight/scrutiny.  He’ll be bored there and Read more

Sure, lets just throw competitive parity away, because there’s a payroll-motivated trade now and then.....brilliant idea! Read more

Just an FYI, but most banks won’t cash a check if you don’t (a) have an account there, or (b) the check was issued from that bank — both of which apply to this situation. Doesn’t seem like the bank did anything out of the ordinary here. Read more

Keep in mind — most banks won’t cash a check if (a) you don’t have an account there, and (b) its not the issuing bank for the check -- both of which apply here. That’s not a race thing, that’s just to prevent check fraud.

C’mon, man — you make this story into more identity politics BS when you add this whole false narrative/story framework, where white people are just out to get black people from the outset. Read more

C’mon, you really need to fact check before writing a story — simple google search will tell you that the Medical Examiner’s report stated Allen was shot in the back of the head, while sleeping.....not the chest. Read more
