re: Would you say that ESPN comes off as supportive of paying college athletes? - GusAU
[quote]ESPN definitely supports paying athletes. I’m not saying whether it’s right/wrong and if I agree/disagree. BUT...the value of a college education is not weighed appropriately by the media that feeds the athletes.[/quote] The players are already paid....

re: Question For Golfers/Golf Fans - GusAU
[quote]I'm sure they could do it, but that's part of the charm of the game.[/quote] Maybe we just look at it differently, but I've always thought the charm was the skill level of the game's top players.....in a sport that people can play until their 70s-80s. :dunno: ...

re: Question For Golfers/Golf Fans - GusAU
[quote]BoomerJam[/quote] Honestly, the money the Tour makes is so much that the expense we are talking about is minuscule (and tax deductible). Even if you had to use volunteers, there is no reason to be the ONLY major professional sport to require the participants to keep their own score. ET...

re: If Football is moved to the Spring - GusAU
[quote]Let’s hope because is the stupidest idea ever to move it to spring[/quote] Why? Not asking argumentively, just curious why it's so stupid? Maybe you realize, but don't care....if an entire football season is lost, the lost revenues will cause quite a few non-revenue sports to be eliminat...

[quote]How would a choice to play make the school not liable in any way? I’m not saying they would be the cause, but lawyers would have a field day.[/quote] Look at my example above about Gregg Pratt in 1983. He tragically died of a heat stroke just before the season. He wasn't forced to play. H...

re: Question For Golfers/Golf Fans - GusAU
[quote]Those “officials” with each group are volunteers, and it’s very common for them to get the scores wrong. Shot link is the best alternative, but again run by volunteers and they get it wrong. Only the leaders and popular players have cameras or audiences around for every shot. PGA Tour e...

re: Question For Golfers/Golf Fans - GusAU
[quote]There is not a PGA official with every group in every tournament. Possibly there are in majors but certainly not in the John Deere Classic. There are usually officials spread throughout the course that cover multiple holes/groups during the round. [/quote] Maybe I'm mistaken. I always thou...

re: Question For Golfers/Golf Fans - GusAU
[quote]Not every shot is under the scrutiny of an official or camera[/quote] That really has nothing to do with the golfer being responsible for keeping their own score. There is a PGA official that walks with every group. If a golfer makes a mistake (accidentally moves the ball, moves an impedim...

re: If Football is moved to the Spring - GusAU
[quote]There’s no circumstance where there’s zero liability for the schools. Even if the players signed something that wouldn’t hold up in court.[/quote] Wrong. If the players choose to play, the school will not be liable. I'm not going to address this issue (liability) anymore, because I know ...

re: If Football is moved to the Spring - GusAU
[quote]Pro sports are run by billionaires who can absorb a loss in revenue for one year. Pro players are employees and have a union, so they can come to agreements on safety guidelines. Lessens the threat of litigation. Universities have none of that. They are scared to death of getting sued and ...

re: If Football is moved to the Spring - GusAU
[quote]First of all if u are paid to play, feel free to play as much as u want. It’s gonna boil done to liability. If someone dies or has heart issues get ready to shell out a ton of money, even though they are more likely to get it outside of the university.[/quote] No one is being forced to play....

[quote]Thing is... he was eating dinner and got to thinking and realized he'd missed a stroke. And told them. And they DQ'd him. If he hadn't told them, nobody would have been any the wiser. Seems to me that they would have simply adjusted his score rather than DQ him from a major.[/quote] I totall...

Question For Golfers/Golf Fans - GusAU
Why do the professional tours (PGA, European Tour, etc) still require each golfer to keep their own score and sign their scorecard after each round? This is 2020. There is an official following every group. There is TV coverage. There really is no good reason to require a golfer to have to b...

re: If Football is moved to the Spring - GusAU
[quote]They’re moving football to the spring out safety for the players. It’s more dangerous to have them play two seasons in one year than play through COVID.[/quote] Honest question....not trying to start an argument: I see many say that playing in the spring (which they could start in late Ja...
