Re: Random Thoughts Again

I don't think an employer can not give you a job based on passed mental health issues or if you admitted to drug abuse in the past. That is #4 and #8. Depends. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) will have certain protections for people with genuine diagnosed issues, but if you don't fall wit...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

I may have missed it in some of the posts but has anyone on the board been through a background check to purchase a firearm? It sounds like Carl has. But, I think your question misses the point. A background check is a pretty standard thing. My wife goes through this all the time. She gets finger p...

Re: Barkley declares for the 2018 NFL Draft

To your point, if you fix #3 then that goes a long way to solving 4 and 5. The Giants have a running back who is a dime-a-dozen guy. With the right line opening holes he's going to move the ball for you. But, he's not a Barkley or any of the other guys you mentioned. He's not an explosive, change th...

Re: The NCAA is a complete joke

I think enforcing standards of amateurism and player eligibility based on things like academic integrity are within their remit as well (I guess that could fall into the field is "fair"). If Louisville did what they were accused of, I think the NCAA is probably in the right in pulling that...

Re: The NCAA is a complete joke

Rick Pitino is publicly protesting his innocence, and urging Louisville to keep the 2013 National Championship banner up and asking the school to sue the NCAA.

I'm with Rick. Sue the bastards.

Re: Barkley declares for the 2018 NFL Draft

I generally agree with you. A RB is not the most pressing need. The Giants are looking at free agents and they could conceivably solve their line problems that way. They need a Barkley, but they need a left tackle more. Who the Giants take with that pick will depend a lot on what holes they fill wit...

Re: Barkley declares for the 2018 NFL Draft

I had not considered that as an option. I think that is unlikely for a lot of reasons but it's actually not a bad idea. Cousins is a decent QB. And right now I think he's probably a better option than Eli. A good team can win with him. You draft a kid out of college, it's like a box of chocolates. H...

Re: Barkley declares for the 2018 NFL Draft

Cousins will not sign with the Giants. Won't happen. He's not signing on and waiting for Eli to retire.

Is that you on the left or on the right?

Touché'.

Btw, there is a great meme that shows a guy at a protest holding a placard that reads: "What do we want? A Time Machine! When do we want it? It's irrelevant!"
