Not sure how aware you are of the going ons of the NCAA and what not, but the players are trying to unionize so that they can be paid like athletes.

I agree though, no one should really care. When you're in college, you do what you can to make your money go far, be it selling jerseys or eating cheap

I think most people here support athletes getting paid, so I think most of us are fine with that.

The prospects are low but it's possible. A UGer got a job in social work with a philosophy degree.

Also, you'd be surprised. Comment sections were rife with idiots claiming Foster was in the wrong because he broke what are very clear rules.

I don't necessarily think that's an indication that people don't support athletes getting paid so much as it is expecting athletes to follow the rules, no matter how asinine. But I could be wrong.

Example. I think marijuana should be legalized, but at the same time, it's pretty well known at this point that the NFL will punish you for getting caught, so either don't smoke or don't get caught.

No, they were saying Foster did a bad thing. It's the logical fallacy that morality is based on law

I figured we had all learned by now that reading the comments section on internet articles is like asking Fred Phelps about gay rights: Doomed to end badly.

I need a new name now that Freddo passed

Asking Rush Limbaugh not to be a conservative prick?

Hoping Megatron won't catch that pass?

Asking Tumblr about feminism?

#1 and #3 are acceptable, #2 doesn't work because Matt Elam proved he won't catch it as long as you call him an old man before the game

This is nice and all, but you should be handing it to the guy who has gun charges, hit and run, and a DUI.





Also Phil degrees get you into law school.

The guy you should be handing the ball to instead of wasting time speculating on who you should hand the ball to.


I'll give you a hint:






You should be handing the ball to him.

Jay Cutler vs. Jets or Russell Wilson vs. Broncos?

Wilson. Seahawks in Seattle > everyone else in the world. We saw how well the Jets defense held down Aaron Rodgers until that end of the game comeback. They'll do even worse to Jay Cutler.

Cutler has the weapons and the matchup. If this game plays out anything like the Super Bowl, which it probably will considering it's a home game, the Seahawks will get ahead early and Lynch will sap any of Wilson's fantasy value. The Jets held Rodgers back, yes, but look at the whole game. Rodgers final statline was decent, and he only has one top tier threat. Cutler has two and a solid talent in Holmes as a third option. Go with Cutler.

I'm only considering Cutler because the Jets' secondary so far looks like pop warner level. But after how the last game ended, me thinks they'll be a pretty pissed off football team, especially on MNF.

Apparently he had back spasms. Plus San Diego dominated time of possession.





Wilson vs. Cutler? I'd say Cutler. I predict a shootout with Denver, but a lot of ground game, as Denver is starting 2 backup LBs.
