re: Football Outsiders: Colin Kaepernick is definitely being blackballed by the NFL - wrlakers
[quote]the OP is clueless about the meaning of bkackballed. There is no collusion to keep him out of the league. [/quote] I agree. I disagree with the posts that compared this situation to Tebow. Tebow was loved by the fans, but not talented enough to be worth the distraction. Kaep isn't ...

re: Schefter via ESPN: "Growing feeling that Zeke will be suspended" - wrlakers
[quote]schefter via ESPN: "Growing feeling that Zeke will be suspended"[/quote] Locally (in Dallas) the word is that there is no current investigation of Ezekiel ongoing by the local police or the NFL or anyone else. Knowledgeable sources have said that, although they respect Schefter as a journ...

re: Plano vs Dallas - wrlakers
I live inside the loop and love it. Everything you might want to do is just around the corner. Besides the fact that there are few mature trees in Plano, the difference is that Plano is all-in suburbia. Reminds me of that old Matt Dillon movie Over the Edge. ...

re: Following the Tommy Casanova helmet.. - wrlakers
[quote]They're plaster, so pretty fragile. Most of them have likely been destroyed.[/quote] All the more reason to think twice before you give it to your nephew. It is so interesting to find out there is another one out there and that they were selling them at a game. I will tell my mom and se...

re: Following the Tommy Casanova helmet.. - wrlakers
[quote]I'm considering giving Billy to my nephew when he graduates from LSU, but I'm concerned that he'll still be too young and not responsible enough to take care of it. Either way, I'm keeping fat boy for myself.[/quote] I wouldn't give it to him yet. I told my mom that I was going to see ...

re: Following the Tommy Casanova helmet.. - wrlakers
[quote]Maybe, but I've never seen another one. I have another plaster figurine from the same era (also was my aunt's) which is the same size and style but it's not a specific player. It's just a fat-bellied generic LSU player whose jersey has no number. That one might actually be more rare becaus...

re: Fantasy Draft Board - wrlakers
[quote] out of wood? [/quote] No. EDIT-maybe it was 16 posters/4 across and 4 high. But I used to make one out of 12 poster boards. It was really cool. Four across and three high. Then used marks-a-lot to draw the graph for the draft. When done, use masking tape to put posters together,...

Over tipping says [quote] "The most glaring way to show you're an American -- besides your accent -- is to over-tip. In some countries, particularly Asia, it isn't even considered polite to tip.

re: Love Jamal Adams, but damn man you're better than that - wrlakers
Americans generally tend to over-tip, so this does not bother me. It's not like he was at some fancy white tablecloth place. When I was overseas, I was expressly instructed that cab drivers were insulted by over tipping. I was told by someone who understood the culture that the cab driver did...
