Of course he’s legally allowed to play baseball, or any other sport. The issue is that it may well be the case that all 30 major league baseball teams come to the same decision that they don’t want the PR disaster or the hit to their conscience of employing someone who sexually assaulted a four-year-old girl…
You know you’ve really fucked up when you feel it prudent to put $75 million aside just to compensate the victims whose abuse you’ve enabled who *haven’t* come forward yet.
Presumably because the sports leagues aren’t the only ones with an army of lobbyists - the Nevada casino industry has an even larger one (see their efforts to ban online poker while keeping all their stuff legal). I don’t know how Congress could have written a ban for everywhere except Nevada, and shutting down much…
Yeah, I think the nail in the coffin was seeing Lebron have to turn on every afterburner he possessed just to barely squeeze by in seven games a middling team nobody had a lot of expectations for, only for 48 hours later an even more tired Lebron to show up in Toronto, miss a bunch of shots and not really try to win…
“Pay them off so they don’t walk” is only an extortion tactic that works as long as municipalities continue to be willing to pay them off. If they collectively just stop paying them off, there’s no more leverage.
Is there some available coach out there who has a secret plan for making James less good at basketball? If so, the Raptors should definitely hire that guy.
Koreans, like some other Asian cultures, put their family names first. “Un” is basically his middle name or part of a hyphenated first name, if you’re going to use one syllable for him Kim would make a lot more sense.
Either these employees are staggeringly unaware of what was going on at their company, or they’re staggeringly dishonest in trying to convince people that what they did wasn’t a big deal.
To recap, what happened was:
1) Cambridge harvested the full Facebook profile data, including groups liked and all sorts of…
Yeah, as far as I know the Stepien Rule is the only such restriction that’s in place, and has been for decades. I don’t know of anything that would prevent a team from making a similar Nets trade to pick up a 2019, 2021, and 2023 first-rounder.
Take a look at the 2013 Sixers roster and tell me how you’re going to build a contender out of that without tanking. I dare you.
Well, there’s the part where house-flipping is a terrible thing to popularize for American society, had a large part in crashing the housing market and creating a massive recession, and contributes to a depressing culture of raw greed and “getting yours”, in addition to being low-class manufactured-drama formulaic…
Anyone who’s still “skeptical” at this point has ulterior motives and isn’t going to be convinced, but there are *tons* of American politicians that care deeply about climate change.
It just takes people actually getting out and voting for them, the way they didn’t in 2016.
Hopefully it’s just because he’s moving out of his college housing arrangement and has a bunch of stuff packed in the car, but yeah, Georgia’s sweltering five-month summer has already begun, the electronics is a really bad idea.
Works great until a playoff series is decided by a projection saying a home run would have gone 449 or 451 feet when the ball was caught in the stands well before it travelled close to either distance.
You must be particularly skilled at identifying occupiers of closed bathroom stalls. Most people are not.
You wrote a lot of fancy words to say “stop talking shit about Trump if you want to keep your jobs”.
“Peter King working 70% less” is like a tree falling in a forest situation, right?
The latter is worse. People can deal with you taking 30 seconds to pour a condiment. Taking one of the restaurant’s bottles is literally just stealing, just as it would be to take a metal fork or something.
Also, where are you eating these? If you’re taking your to-go burrito back to either your home or office, just…
I don’t think it’s asking too much that an American entertainment company have the remarkably low bar of values such that they don’t whore themselves out to doing outright propaganda for an oppressive dictatorial regime or hold events in areas of the world so repressive that women aren’t allowed to either attend or…
As an American, it’s mind-boggling to see people from more, I suppose, honor-based cultures say something like “I’ll retire from professional Overwatch if you prove me wrong” and then...actually do it. Here that’d go something like “lulz I was joking idiot”.
