re: University of Texas to pay 10,000 per athlete... - RollTide1987
The fans have no one to blame but themselves. In the 60s and 70s this wasn't a problem as most teams were only on television once or twice a year. Now, with these multi-billion dollar media deals being thrown around, we get to watch our favorite teams on television every week. But none of that mo...

[quote]The "purpose" of college athletics isn't supposed to be to make money...it's supposed to be about education, experience, competition, etc. (I know this is BS). And wiping out the athletics programs at a ton of schools because 20 or so athletics programs make some money is ridiculous.[/quote] ...

[quote]WHO THE HELL THINKS THE CURRENT SYSTEM IS FAIR? [/quote] I really am getting tired of hearing people whine about parity and fairness in sports. The purpose of athletics is to gain a competitive advantage over your opponent. People seem to forget that sports isn't supposed to be a level p...

[quote]Big schools that make money can pay their athletes. But for small schools that are already losing money and barely keeping their athletic programs afloat, making them pay each athlete a similar amount will destroy them. [/quote] Are you a communist? What's wrong with that? ...

Well there goes parity. This is good for schools like Alabama, Texas, Ohio State, Michigan, and USC. However it doesn't look good for the smaller schools. ...

re: Is this the new Robin? This movie . . . - RollTide1987
[quote]That's understating Batman's age in TDKR by ALOT. That story is basically his swan song, his riding off into the sunset. STARTING the JL with Batman's final tale is risky. [/quote] However I highly doubt Bruce Wayne is going to be in his 70s in this movie. Looking at the leaked set phot...

[quote]Why not have Batman at it for 5 years already instead of making him old?[/quote] Because we've seen that before? An older, more experienced Batman is something that hasn't been seen in a live action movie. ...

[quote]I know I'm beating a dead horse, but it makes no sense to start off Batman in The Dark Knight Returns version of the character. Can anyone else not see this? [/quote] I'm afraid I cannot see it. Everyone already knows Batman's origin and has seen a good bit of his rouges gallery. Why b...

re: Amari Cooper interview with Dough Gottlieb - RollTide1987
[quote]That interview couldn't have been more boring. I would almost bet someone was telling him what to say. [/quote] That's Coop's reputation. He doesn't say that much. Remember his "interview" after the Florida game? He's a man of very few words. ...

[quote]I think it was the iron bowl 2009.[/quote] You would be wrong. This was VT's score to go ahead before halftime in 2009. The original video shows Ricky's reaction to Rolando McClain pushing a VT player, followed by pushing an official. ...

Exodus: Gods and Kings reportedly 200 minutes (3 hrs & 20 mins) long - RollTide1987
IMDB has it listed at 200 minutes. If so I am uber excited. This is supposed to be harkening back to the biblical epics of the 1950s. I really hope the studio doesn't force Ridley Scott to cut the film down to size like they did with Kingdom of Heaven. The Director's Cut for that film was SO muc...

Dan LeBetard on ESPN radio blasting Ole Miss and Mississippi State - RollTide1987
He was ranting earlier about Ole Miss and Mississippi State football and openly wondering why no one is asking how two teams that have been mediocre for the better part of SEC history are all of a sudden #1 and #3 in the AP poll. He says his gut feeling is something shady is going on in Oxford ...
