re: Craziest Articles After Last Night (Collection)
Posted by N.O. via West-Cal on 11/25 at 4:25 pm
when I read an Atlantic piece this morning, it provided many of the same quotes as the Vox article, and I was and remain skeptical of some parts of Wilson's story. The part about Brown handing his friend the stolen cigs WHILE BEATING DOWN A COP just seemed bizarre. Now, with that said, the eyewitn...

re: Thoughtful article by Juan Williams on the need for black leadership right now
Posted by N.O. via West-Cal on 11/25 at 10:53 am
Good piece, but Williams is going to lose a lot of people by referring to the "murdered" teen. At the barest minimum, can't Williams admit that there is some doubt as to what occurred? Evidently not....

Breakdown of Contradictory Eye-Witness Accounts of Ferguson Shooting
Posted by N.O. via West-Cal on 11/25 at 10:23 am
I have not kept up on the Ferguson story as much as many have, so I found this relatively brief piece in The Atlantic to be helpful as it lays out some key passages of the eye-witness accounts. For what it's worth, I really wonder if the officer couldn't have done better with the situation, esp...

re: Are the Pelicans' stat-keepers fudging Anthony Davis' block numbers?
Posted by N.O. via West-Cal on 11/24 at 3:18 pm
VT: I remember the kerfuffle over Paul's assist numbers, and if I recall correctly, the one who complained the loudest was the play-by-play man for the Clippers. I have noticed AD's numbers being inflated as I watch a game, but I don't catch every game, and I am often distracted by kids, etc. ...

re: Pelicans (6-4) @ Nuggets (4-7) | Prediction Thread
Posted by N.O. via West-Cal on 11/21 at 11:41 am
103-96, Pels. Not the best effort, but good enough. I don't know exactly how much I trust my prediction, but this is an important type of game to win. Opponent is perhaps not terrible but certainly beatable. On the road, but it's not a back-to-back, and you've even had two days which allows fo...

I am at a stage of life now (kids) that puts me in the 3-6 times per year group, so I will try to accept the "national TV" challenge. It really does look better if the house is full for national games. Of course, so much of what you see is lower bowl,especially sideline. I wish those folks could ...

"The improvement on D since Auburn has been nothing short of amazing." No doubt about it. The best coaching job, by far, that we have seen from this staff this year or perhaps even in recent years. from a unit that could not even begin to defend simple running plays against State and Auburn to ...

I need to get more up to speed on the modern stats, but the cool thing about AD is that they all tell the same story: we have an unreal talent on our hands. I can't wait to get to another game. A couple of random observations: 1. AD is finishing stronger and higher on contested looks at the ...

Zach, I am pretty sure the left (and others) continued to use the term pretty steadily throug the Iraq War. Toby Keith's (can't recall title) about our response to 9/11 was often derided as "jingoistic." I agree that you don't hear the term as much lately but I suspect that a Democratic preside...

The OP makes a good case for not firing Coach Miles, but are there that many people calling for his ouster? Most of the disaffected - me included - are critical of what the coach has done with this team, specifically the mishandling of the QB situation. the fact that Miles has accmplished a great ...
