the BMOC swagger element is certainly there with Mayfield, as is that he's small for the position. i don't know about the party element/total a-hole that messed up Manziel.

I think theres a whole lot of poker being played now.

Darnold may be the "safe" choice or trading for a basket of picks and letting someone else gamble and go all in.
I think - think we are in get talent mode, rather than get draft choices. Unless Bflo offers three 1s I do not see even trading the 4. I would take Darnold.and Barkley or Chubb, depending on who is left. But if three Ahs are.off the board that 4th pick could be worth a lot

I think Manziel was a better college QB than Mayfield and that Mayfield has some of the same non-football issues that Manziel had.  I have to believe his going first is a huge smokescreen.
Also, small hands. And you know what that means. Small hands, can't trust 'em. In the winter, when the ball gets slippery.

Ha! 

Consolidating voting places - that won't affect voters who don't drive or can't afford a car or are too busy with work to drive three times as far, will it?  I guess if that did affect demographics, it could cut both ways.  Ancient grannies and young minimum wage workers could both be somewhat thwarted. 
Wow.
Ever hear of Uber or Lyft?

Are they free? You are taking a rather middle class view of things. But then you have never given a.fuck about the obstacles raised by being poor.

Worth noting that.given the characteristics of this district there are areas where transportation to polling places is always a huge problem, and places where everyone gets to the polls via golf cart.
What’s your point?
It’s up to all of us to get to the polling places.

Indeed. The practical difficulties for poor people doing so mean precisely shit to you. Particularly when they reliably vote against you.

yup

too many hyped guys all sitting near the top of the draft.

I saw Darnold and Rosen play around 4 games each this year and i thought there was regression from both guys.

But who knows they may be the next guy.

I thought Mayfield was the best "pro" QB I saw this year.

and then Callahan.

had to.

heh

There oughta be a law against idiot military commanders.

Usually they only get history's negative judgment.  The name "Mark Clark" serves as profanity in parts of Texas.


Any military commanders with even a smidge of an idea would've taken one look at Gallipoli in the dawn light and said "no thanks, ridiculous...let's go home, and tell the govt man to think up something else".

Mrs bambu says that; "older Japanese people want the US to stay in Japan, it's the younger Japanese people who want the US to leave.
The older Japanese people like Trump, because they see him as their only real hope against the 'missile-firing madman' to their north".

That's what she says.

Younger Japanese people should maybe stop playing those stoopid games on tv, go read some history books, study world politics, and get some idea.

Trump is our only hope.
Japan's only hope, Australia's only hope [well his absolute commitment to ANZUS Alliance still seems uncertain], and basically the 'Christian' West's only hope.
