    But China and pretty much everyone does the same thing. It's just in the US it's the media making the decision and in China it's the government.

    And the news actually invents problems to report...

    Yeah, it's just that Dallas was kind of desperate ... I think Dallas has some other people's 2nds so maybe it's one of the earlier ones?

    I actually like Looney as a player MUCH more than WCS.

    Sluggo, let me tell you a story, curious about what you think would be "right"?

    In LA the private golf courses pay 1978 property tax rates because the law says the land can't be re-assessed until...

    I don't think they want to be deceived, I think doing that investigation is dangerous and expensive and the BS sells better anyhow so why dig.

    Okay, I see what you are saying, but you are mistaken. China covers up the vast majority of the stuff they get up to.

    And the "Iraqi freedom" stuff was government spin, but the news was full of...

    It would be nice to get more that JUST Dallas' 2nd. But he's not the future so not surprising.

    US media is centered around painting a good picture? What are you watching? The US news media is wall to wall negativity. If they can't find any they make it up. They want eyes watching and...

    So ... what you say IS? Neat power.

    I don't even know what you are trying to say. Chinese media is the propaganda voice of the government, if they do say something the government doesn't want...

    Good post.

    I think some of the talking heads don't watch the regular season games so the injuries just get missed and really when it comes to defense they just look at the final score. Just like...

    I like the idea that loans should be sponsored by the industry they are learning to enter. They can evaluate the candidates and decide if they are worth it or not. I think the evaluation should be...

    What I heard was their proposal to reduce the rate on the income based payment plan with any remaining balance forgiven after 15 years, down from 25 years.

    It was a problem before that too that's true. I think fundamentally schools are too nice, and the easy availability of loans has lead to the incredible increase in services available and cost of...

    Who is the predatory load service for college loans? The US government took over all student loans 10 years ago.

    Right now players know they can break the rules and get away with it so they plan and train to break the rules. Because of that there are fouls on every play. If they were caught regularly then...

    If every foul and every infraction was called perfectly 100% of the time would that work for you or do you want it to be a little sloppy?

    That would be fine with me, but that's a LONG way off.

    You are making an assumption. More refs with more defined roles could reasonably lead to fewer blown calls which will get the players to adjust and be less likely to knowingly commit those fouls.

    I have hope. I'd rather take it to 6 refs and get rid of replay.
  21. No refs, let the players call the fouls.

    No refs, let the players call the fouls.

    It depends on the terms of the contract. If they have a termination clause then it sets the rules.

    Poorly. Still social media is too minimalist with no responsibility and people are too stupid to think and investigate what they see no matter how many times they've been told to pay attention.

    The problem was created when the government got into the college loans business.

    I don't think it's a lock, but I feel like most of the talking heads don't realize how injured the 49ers were for the last third of the season. They just look at the final scores and say "nah, not...
