NFL News:

  • Family patriarch & chief enabler Alex Spanos died Tuesday morning, aged 95.
    • Disappointed in the man his son had become, Alex Spanos leaves behind three other, hopefully less embarrassing, children, and a whole litter of grand- & great grandchildren.
      • Two of his grandsons look after the day-to-day operations of the Chargers.
  • Adrian Peterson dislocated his shoulder in Monday Night’s loss to the Saints.
    • There’s no word on the severity of the separation, nor whether it’s his beatin’ arm.
  • What’s old is old yet also new again: Derek Anderson has signed with the Bills.
    • Mostly to serve as a mentor for Josh Allen.
      • Kind of like he did for Cam Newton.
    • So the clock is officially ticking on Nathan Peterman.
  • NBC got the League to pull out its flex pen early – Rams-49ers is off Sunday night on October 21, replaced by Bengals-Chiefs.
    • This will be the second week in a row the Chiefs are on Sunday night.
      • They get the Patriots this coming Sunday.
    • We know Peter King can’t get enough of that Skyline chili, so I can’t wait for his foray into the BBQ joins of Kansas City.
  • Borrowing ESPN’s lede: George Taliaferro, who in 1949 became the first African-American player to be drafted by an NFL team, died Monday night at age 91.
    • He was drafted in the 13th round of the 1949 draft by the Bears, but instead chose to play for the LA Dons of the AAFC.
      • Because that league folded after the 1949 season, Taliaferro joined the NFL in 1950.
        • He played six seasons, with the New York Yanks (1950-51), Dallas Texans (’52), Baltimore Colts (’53-54) and Philadelphia Eagles (’55).
    • Jim Irsay sobered up long enough to offer some poignant, cogent thoughts:


Tonight’s sports:

  • NHL:
    • Sharks at Flyers – 7:30PM | NBCSN
    • Regional broadcasts of Flames, Canucks, Jets & Leafs
  • MLB:
    • Game 4: Red Sox at Yankees – 8:00PM | TBS / Sportsnet
  • NCAA:
    • Appalachian State at Arkansas State – 8:00PM | ESPN2 / TSN3
  • WWE:
    • Smackdown – 8:00PM | USA / Sportsnet360

My computer is in the shop, so I put this together using an old one that had Windows Vista. LIKE THE STONE AGE!

Just want to give props to the DFO haus here. We all know the Spanos’ are fucked but, in life, they never gave a shit about one fan. Its only at the time of heir death — when even quiet indifference is implied acceptance of a life worth private celebration — that fans can make their voices heard. Bravo to everyone using today to shit all over the Spanosi; there’s no looking back with rose colored glasses to fool yourself into thinking the entire Spanos legacy isn’t a complete skid mark when people are actually enjoying your passing.

Sidenote: you’re goddamn right I’m gonna raid Sarah Huckabee’s grave and skin the corpse for a jacket. I mean, even battleships need to stay warm.

So SCOTUS upheld a Voter ID law today. It’s a good example of what the next 25-40 years are going to be like.

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh
Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

Yep; 1950s redux; the bad things.

Gratliff

Kavanaugh wasn’t involved, but here’s the thing: In North Dakota, you can no longer register to vote with a PO Box. Native Americans came out against the new law, because USPS doesn’t deliver to reservations, so many don’t have actual street addresses; they use PO Boxes. The law was passed after the current dem senator won her last election by a slim margin with strong Native support. It’s as transparent as it is shitty and it was upheld.

Redshirt

That makes sense, to be sure a district isn’t overrepresented. However don’t you need an address to get a PO Box? And isn’t the PO Box in the zipcode you live? This should’ve been worked around.

Gotta love the USPS. Neither rain nor slow nor dark of night will keep me from…oh, you live in a reservation? Screw that!

This should’ve been an 8-0 decision telling the mailcarriers to deliver to the Reservations or we’ll order the Postmaster General to find someone who will.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Why would you need an address to get a PO Box? Last I checked, it’s not illegal to be homeless.

I’ll check again next month, it probably will be soon, though.

Bottom line is that no, it doesn’t make sense. It’s yet another front in the war against poor people voting.

Redshirt

You don’t? I was assuming. I have no clue for PO Boxes. I thought you needed to prove you lived in that zipcode the Post Office services, hense an address.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

My understanding is that you don’t have to *prove* it, you just have to declare it (as “where you sleep”) when you register. I think it can be as vague as “under the 4th street bridge”.

BrettFavresColonoscopy

Not even. I got a PO Box in LA while I was still living in CO. I don’t remember even needing to give them a “home address”. My registration to vote was all separate and done where I’m actually domiciled but I don’t live on a reservation. Yet.

scotchnaut

I need to say this-

I feel that Redshirt is the most open-minded fella on this site. He’s the one that has consistently tested his ideas against overwhelming opposition and has adjusted his position as he sees fit. Not a single one of us has done the same (myself included) because we think our thinkspace is a done deal.

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh
Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

True; that’s why I like (well, sometimes not like) to examine completely opposing viewpoints. Here I’d rather read dick jokes, which are the best, than half-assed political debate. When I feel something is total bullshit, sometimes I’ll try to call it out, other times I just want to pass and move to something that is funny. I don’t feel anyone is a hero for just blurting random shit out, quite the opposite.

Redshirt

Well if most politicians are both jokes and dicks, doesn’t that make them dick jokes?

Except being a Bengals fan. I have no excuses for that, and I’m not going to stop.

ballsofsteelandfury

Totally agree. Redshirt rocks!

BrettFavresColonoscopy

Agreed on Redshirt being open. I’m happy to debate and engage on my ideas, and it’s frustrating when for every Redshirt there are 10 Republicans that start from a position of “Obama was a secret Muslim” or “liberalism is a mental disorder”. That bullshit isn’t going to be a real discussion.

Guys, I need help here. Early Voting starts tomorrow. I was almost there for voting a Pure Blue ballot for the first time in my life.

Then I saw an interview where Hillary Clinton said that victims of sexual assault deserve to be heard. This is the same person that squawks Vast Right Wing Conspiracy!!!TM where someone accuses her husband of sending Little Air Force One into unfamiliar territory and whose supporters say her election was stolen even though she felt so entitled that she didn’t feel like visiting the states she lost and…

(beat)
(takes deep breath)

I need some help getting me over the finish line. Not ad hominem, if possible.

Wakezilla

Clintons are on their way out the door. This is like not voting for a Republican because Dick Cheney said something on Fox News or whatever.

You’re good. You’d be even better if you went socialist

scotchnaut

edit- Oof! I’m an angry son of a bitch right now.

Redshirt

I said NOT ad hominem. I know you mean it with a great deal of respect.

Gratliff

Bill Clinton is at best an uncontrollable sex maniac whose need to get off has destroyed the lives of many women, and caused undue harm to the women in his life. He is at worst probably a rapist.

Hillary Clinton is at best a woman who let her political ambitions wipe out the first half of her career wherein she was best known as a champion for child welfare as she willingly dived into every shitty warhawk tendency the US SoS position traditionally demands to build a resume befitting of a President. She is at worst a cold, calculating political robot who easily moved past endless sexual harassment, assault, and outright rape accusations against her husband, then smashed the fuck out of that drone strike button on her death march to the White House.

The current President is at least as bad as Bill in that regard. The current first lady sits idly by and watches her husband set in motion some of the most harmful and inhuman immigration policies in modern US history despite the fact that she lived in the country on an expired visa and would have been booted out of the country instantly according to the Administration’s standards.

They’re at least as bad as the Clintons with literally none of the upside.

It’s a practice in futility, though, because you can do this all day with politicians up and down the ballots and realize that there are very few good people who actively seek power, and even the ones who actually are good will ultimately disappoint you (Looking at you, 44).

Redshirt

(slow clap) Nicely said.

blaxabbath

2A.

Make a lasting impact.

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh
Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

Why are you even bringing up Clinton? It is irrelevant to the currant ballot, even though they had a big part in where we are now. Her opinion or what she says is irrelevant. You give them more credit and power than they deserve by listening. If you are sickened by the pro-rapist (among other things very damaging to the general populace) party vote otherwise. If you want to just make a statement and can’t stomach a certain dem-crat, vote libertardian, commie, greenie or other such.

Redshirt

To be perfectly honest, where I’m live, if I don’t vote Republican, it won’t matter. I can write in Optimus Prime for Senator and Adam, Prince of Eternia for Representative and will have the same impact as voting for Sherrod Brown or that woman running against Brad Wenstrup. That’s how Conservative Ohio is. I have no clue whose running.

Col. Duke LaCross

The republicans count Ted Cruz and Mike Lee amongst their ranks.

Even the worst of the D’s aren’t as sniveling and weasely as those two shitbags.

BrettFavresColonoscopy

So, in addition to the Clintons aren’t on the ballot/formulating policy and are therefore irrelevant to your vote, there are a couple of things that should push you over the edge. Whether or not you think Dems have a chance in your district, they’re the only party trying to actually govern as opposed to win for the sake of winning no matter the damage to the country. You could listen to arguments from longtime Republicans who believe that the party that has welcomed and emboldened neo-nazis and pizzagate trolls needs to be trounced at the polls in order for a new center right party to emerge from its ashes (eg https://www.theatlantic.com/amp/article/572419/ or https://twitter.com/Zathras3/status/1049500707089522688?s=19) or you could listen to former non-partisans who objectively decided long ago that the GOP was beyond the pale (https://twitter.com/joshtpm/status/1049312819391471617?s=19) or you could just decide that it’s important to not just say ok when the party in power decides to delegitamize its opposition as “less than.” I understand not being comfortable with 100% of the Democratic party’s platform, but it’s at least trying to help people, even when it doesn’t get it right. Republicans have crossed that Rubicon a long time ago.

My $.02 and happy to talk further on DM if you’d like.
