re: The Marvel Problem (Video Essay) - molsusports
Somewhat fair. As someone who hasn't read comics in a long time I have been puzzled by what has happened to the Marvel Universe in comics. One of the great virtues of having such a large number of movies with young audiences watching would be the ease with which it could add new readers. ...

re: Whether you want to admit it or not, Kaepernick may actually win his case. - molsusports
[quote] Kaep has 32 similar offers as well, [/quote] Yeah, but they were apparently the same before anyone had a reason to consider blacklisting him. At some level NFL teams are allowed to be concerned about their attendance as well. Although it is surprising people have cared as much as ...

Good call. Presumably they had dozens of player examples with suspiciously similar offers? That would be convincing. ...

re: Whether you want to admit it or not, Kaepernick may actually win his case. - molsusports
I do think Kaep would have gotten another job opportunity if it weren't for the kneeling and assorted comments from both him and his girlfriend (mostly the Castro and the Ravens stuff). But those comments were made and my impression is proving collusion is extremely difficult. Have there been m...

re: Nate Boyer Open Letter - molsusports
Yeah. That is a central point that somehow gets lost. If perceived "race" were determinative then we wouldn't see such profound differences between different generations of immigrants of such similar physical phenotype. And there isn't really great evidence to suggest white culture collective...

re: Nate Boyer Open Letter - molsusports
I think your assumption is a common one but it is at least questionable and probably wrong. Assuming we define a privilege as something innate that provides a benefit there are probably a lot of things that produce objectively larger impacts in life outcome than race. Charisma, beauty, athleticism...

re: Nate Boyer Open Letter - molsusports
The underlying assumption about disparate groups pooling their efforts for common purpose is that people, whatever their differences, can be convinced of a common set of values. Whatever the scale you measure groups of people by, we are more remarkable for our similarities than our differences. ...

re: Nate Boyer Open Letter - molsusports
I don't think that's an accurate characterization. Certainly people of every demographic can be self interested and incurious about the welfare of strangers. But, the pace of political change and tolerance in the United States over the last 50 years is pretty amazing. All it takes is a broad an...

re: Nate Boyer Open Letter - molsusports
I really do wish people would focus on specific issues and set concrete objectives (when they set out with some sort of intention to improve or alter society). Without that kind of boundary the discussion seems to immediately descend into name calling. If you can name a specific issue and how it...

re: NCAA: No Violations, No Penalites on UNC. - molsusports
If you are being propped up as eligible because of the imaginary courses you are taking that should be open and shut. It is amazing how inconsistent the NCAA is with intent and student athlete compliance. This isn't a single easy course like "basket weaving for jocks and dummies" thing. This look...

re: Favorite Movie/TV Shootouts - molsusports
Kige the mentions of Heat and NCFOM. The scene in Unforgiven is still good with a dozen re-watches. "...he should have armed himself if he was going to decorate his saloon with my friend."...

re: NCAA: No Violations, No Penalites on UNC. - molsusports
It is both predictable and pathetic that nothing happens to UNC. This scandal is really more egregious than just giving money to recruits. It reveals how little an allegedly serious academic institution cares about providing their athletes an education. Certainly there are one and dones, and tu...

re: Is Dusty Baker's toothpick one of the trashiest thing in baseball? - molsusports

re: Is Luke Keuchly smart enough to retire? - molsusports
Seeing him lose control and weep without control last year seemed like a major warning sign that his brain has taken serious damage. It sucks to be driven out of a sport you are amazing at, but it has happened to players before and he's better off getting out before he loses too much of himself. ...

re: I admit it, I'm triggered by all these female anchors on ESPN nowadays. - molsusports
My feelings depend on whether I think the anchor legitimately cares about the sport they are covering (and has become knowledgeable out of that passion) or if I think they don't really care all that much and are just using sports as a venue to advance their own interests. I think the best exampl...

re: Is there a more unlikable Coach then Jim McElwain? - molsusports
Some of that. He is a hump on his back away from a Quasimodo impression. He also comes across as arrogant and sensitive. Which is a pretty poor (although common) combination....

re: Why I think 2 Broke Gilrs got canceled - molsusports
Not sure if I have asked this question here before or not. Would "Two and a Half Men" and "Two Broke Girls" have been rated NC 17 in the 50s? The plots were essentially never ending set ups for sex jokes. Most of those seem pretty blue for television even 25 years ago....
