re: NFL admits protest having impact....empty seats across NFL stadiums - NWHoustonTiger
I am arguing that, while anthem-kneeling is almost certainly a big factor in the drop in NFL attendance, you have to consider other factors. Troy said that argument is disingenuous. I think you can reasonably infer that Troy is arguing that anthem-kneeling is the only reason (or by far the largest...

[quote]That's just a completely disingenuous argument. [/quote] You say its a disingenuous argument, but the only evidence you offer to counter the argument is your own personal experience. Do you have any objective evidence or analysis which shows that the [i]only[/i] reason NFL fans are tuning...

re: NFL admits protest having impact....empty seats across NFL stadiums - NWHoustonTiger
First off, I didn't say Kapernick and National Anthem kneeling wasn't an issue. It is undoubtedly an issue, and maybe the biggest issue. I don't think its the only issue, though. [quote]Are the NBA, MLB, UFC or NASCAR facing a 20% decline?[/quote] [link=(http://www.lowkickmma.com/featured/fi...

re: NFL admits protest having impact....empty seats across NFL stadiums - NWHoustonTiger
The protests are having an impact on attendance, but there's some other issues at play: 1. Increasing ticket costs & PSLs 2. Quality and affordability of High-end TVs and home theater systems + packages like NFL Sunday Ticket 3. Game Day Experience - the proliferation of fights, public drunkennes...

[quote]Believe it or not Alabama isn't all backwoods rednecks...in the major cities like Mobile, Montgomery, Bham, and Huntsville, Doug Jones will get a lot of the vote. It probably wouldn't be close if it were literally anyone except Roy Moore. He turns almost everyone off.[/quote] Oh I know. T...

re: Seeing a bunch of Doug Jones signs - NWHoustonTiger
Moore will win by double-digits. However, I will be interested to see how Moore performs in the few college-educated upper-income areas of the state (Mountain Brook, Hoover, Vestavia Hills). That faction of the GOP coalition is the weak-spot for both Trump individually and the Bannon alt-right mov...

re: So is it fair to say middle class got fked by tax reform? - NWHoustonTiger
Easily-identifiable losers - high wage earners in blue states with high state income taxes (NY, CA, NJ, MA, etc.). While the top rate does decrease from 39.6 to 35%, the loss of the state & local tax deduction is huge. Also, the "framework" calls for a 4th tax bracket above 35% if necessary to pre...

re: GRRM - "We're not doing Robert's Rebellion" - NWHoustonTiger

re: GoT S7 E4 "The Spoils of War" MAESTERS Thread - NWHoustonTiger
Still unanswered on the show (to the best of my knowledge) - what was Jaqen doing in Westeros in the first place? Surely he was not randomly captured while he was out on a mission/contract, right? The crackpot theory is that he was there all along to protect & guide Arya (as he turns to leave afte...

re: So Kiper and McShay both have Trubisky going #1 - NWHoustonTiger
I suspect this is a bluff to see if a team in the top 10 that wants Trubisky (Jets?) is willing to pay a king's ransom for #1 overall. Paul Podesta is apparently pushing hard for the Browns to stockpile future draft picks and a trade for #1 overall would seemingly be in line with that strategy. Al...

Who can lead the DC Film Universe? Obvious Solution.... - NWHoustonTiger
With the poor reception of the current iteration of the DCEU, Warner Bros may at least seek new creative brains to guide the universe (a DC equivalent of Kevin Feige and/or the Russo bros), if not to do a complete reset. Who could Warner bring in? To me, there’s an answer right under their noses. ...
