The soldiers gave three cheers as they urged their tired horses north across the uneven hills. Some of the mounts, exhausted after a week of almost continual marching, began to lag behind; others, spurred on by their enthusiastic riders, began to edge past the regiment's commander. "Boys, hold your horses," Custer cautioned; "there are plenty of them down there for us all."
As I said in the other thread, there were a lot of angry people. Some were racist, some weren't. On the other forum, many people were legitimately mad and said it was a bad decision. They claimed that "Not everyone gets CNBC." Pretty sure CNBC is available on virtually all basic cable packages. It's just people being lazy. They warned in advance that the game would be shifted. It's the first quarter. You can logically check NBC Sports Network for it, or CNBC.
Even if you didn't have cable and didn't know that they'd change...what right do you have to criticize the President for pre-empting football...to talk about a tragedy? Some people should put what's important in perspective.
After I tweeted about what a good decision it was, I got the following message.
Reality is harsh. Reality sucks. We have to deal with it. Period.@ixcuincle no bro, football is entertainment to escape reality. This just brought me down.
The president's speech reinforced what really matters in life, not some stupid game. Our loved ones are the ones that are actually important, our family, our children. Not some game.
The good thing about social media (and the internet in general) is that it gives everyone a voice.
The bad thing about social media (and the internet in general) is that it gives everyone a voice.
I can not stand when deadspin does posts like this. Why do we need to give these morons the time of day?
They post it because they want to be left alone. After they're exposed, their lives are ruined. Take that for what you will.
My home town was carved out of swampland.
Not that I want to see anyone's life ruined, but people should feel the consequences of their words and deeds. Our reactive attitudes are a big part (if not the very essence) of our morality. People say/do bad things, society reacts, and people learn not to say/do bad things.
It saddens me their are people in the world who have so little common decency as to act like this, hopefully feeling the repercussions* will teach them better.
* Repercussions such as public criticism, university sanctions, negative effect on one's social status, loss of job, and so on. I don't mean anything like vigilantism or mob justice. Considering all the crazy things I see, I thought it would behoove me to make this distinction.

The press asked a Redskins executive about the salary cap penalty and the executive responded, "Ask John Mara." So the press asked Mara and he said, “What they did was in violation of the spirit of the salary cap. "
Oh I see now, even though there was no actual salary cap in 2010 according to the CBA, the "spirit" of the salary cap still existed. Thanks for clearing that up Mara.
Keep outing these idiots. They deserve it. The more that face consequences for saying idiotic and racist things, the better IMO.

This is why I appreciate Deadspin.
Not that I support the comments made by those idiots on twitter (because I don't), but I just don't want to see Obama talk about something I really know already.. I can kind of see why some people were pissed (as was I, but I actually changed the channel).
Go Skins! - Bye Gibbs..
Go Wizards! - WE SUCK
Go Orioles! - WE SUCK
Go Hokies! - UNC Sucks DUKE Sucks BC Sucks CLEMSON Sucks GT Sucks UVA Sucks MIAMI Terrible
You might be surprised how little people know about things.
Nice to see one of these idiots was punished for his stupidity.
