[quote]But if a player pushes a coach this won't be an acceptable defense.[/quote] This would be a fun exercise or gotcha or whatever but last week we literally had a defensive player threaten to fight his defensive line coach on a sideline and no one cared. [link=(https://nypost.com/2022/09/3...

re: Why was the Navy over the explosion site? - therick711
My suspicion is Ukraine did it. I have no doubt they needed support or capabilities they don't have, though. Only one ally they have that would aid this because Europeans are dumb but not that dumb. Bad times....

re: What was Dan Borne’s loudest yell ever? - therick711
I nominate the "scores" call for Cedric Donaldson against Florida in 1997. We don't have the benefit of modern stadium audio broadcasting techniques, but he's clearly yelling. [link=(https://youtu.be/kU7ikN-evU8?t=774)]LINK[/link]...

re: For you guys here following the NO to BR passenger train saga - therick711
We've got people trying to make hyperloops and innovative tunnels and Louisiana is like, what if we reinstated slow passenger rail at great expense. Great job, guys. Let's court the candle and buggywhip industries while we're at it. Why not actually do something innovative like making road trave...

re: For you guys here following the NO to BR passenger train saga - therick711
The SRC guys I suspect do. Once they get something, I suspect they believe they can leverage it into more. Their concept does not deserve investment, but they have convinced stewards of public money that it does. AND THAT is how Louisiana does politics. I think all of these projects should have s...

[quote]You only apply this to rail transportation or all infrastructure?[/quote] I apply it to the concept before me. We don't need to subsidize an inferior mode of transportation to create a product no one wants or will use. Build a bridge, build a pump, build a road, build an airport. This is a...

re: For you guys here following the NO to BR passenger train saga - therick711
Because the ability for it to make money is a good indicator of the benefit and value proposition of the concept. Passenger rail is a movement backwards. Perhaps that's why the SRC in Louisiana only has one person on it with any experience at all in rail....

re: For you guys here following the NO to BR passenger train saga - therick711
Look there are plenty of train enthusiasts at BRAC and the Southern Rail Commission which will gladly whitewash the "plans" with you and say the "facts" support the project as conceived originally. Having read the BRAC plan and looked at the rosy projections, which aren't factual data, mind you, jus...

re: For you guys here following the NO to BR passenger train saga - therick711
Not targeted at you personally, just keeping the conversation going. No one wants either plan. Both are a waste. No train concept between Baton Rouge and New Orleans makes sense, solves any problem, creates any social good, or is worth the price tag. The BRAF plan was different, but not good. It ...
