Wow, this is tone deaf... Hasn't the whole sales pitch of the military been 'defending our freedom'? Not interested in anyone actually exercising that freedom. Or whether it's being infringed upon domestically. 
Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall became the latest NFL player to exercise his right to kneel during the playing of the national anthem before Thursday night’s game against the Panthers. On Friday, a company that employed Marshall as an endorser exercised its own rights to cancel their working relationship. The Air Academy Federal Credit Union was…

Beyond the obvious spin of the source, they make a powerful suggestion... that the populist message is far more dangerous to the status quo coming from the left. They're hoping that the Democrats continue to ignore that fact, in deference to their paymasters, and in so doing they keep the Republicans as currently organized legitimate contenders. Something that, not coincidentally, is also in the interest of their mutual paymasters.
Politico is reporting that the Democratic National Committee is hiring a Hillary Clinton fundraiser to be their new finance director, and while I'm sure the general public doesn't actually care, it does raise a point that the DNC seems to be unable to comprehend, even with it's incredibly incompetent former leader stepping down.

It's been an unqualified win for me in the ~13 months I've had it and like so many Google products it continues to iterate much faster than the competition.
Thanks to a new deal, Google's meta-network is getting faster and going more places.

Cause it needs to be repeated, every so often 😀

Personally, I will never love another Viking or another athlete the way I love Randy Moss. Due in large part, I recognize, to the age I was (18, Vikings wise) when he came into my life. As I've aged I've come to understand the criticism and wished he'd have handled some situations differently. But we've all been young, and (realistically) none of us were as good at what we did as he was, so his hubris is, to me, forgivable.

I'd love to live in a world where Zygi bought the team in '98 and spent to win in advance of fleecing the taxpayers for a stadium like he did in '05. Hell, maybe a few $$ makes Marino happen in '00 and 41-donut isn't a thing... or maybe it's worse, because Vikings. But still I'd like to know what'd happen without to '00-04 Vikings without the cheapest coaching staff and defense in the NFL. How different Randy's career might have been...

In European soccer, you could call the powers that be in England on their bullshit and if your talent merited it have the same paycheck in Spain/Germany/France within 48hrs.

First, we don't need these asshats making up Super Bowl losses for us. It's 4, not 5.

Second, interesting how they've given up the conventional narrative and are placing AD squarely in his prime.

Third, we don't need anymore positive press expectations just make the inevitable that much worse 😕
Half of the 32 NFL teams have not won a title in the past 25 years. Which ones have the best chances to end their streaks?

Naturally, my point was that the media often treats him as just a few carries from over the hill and here they implied he has a few years left at the top. Something I'd tend to agree with, the man isn't human.

What do we suppose is more likely... That the Russians really, truly care who is elected president* or that they're a patsy for those on both sides opposed to Trump? Been playing that "terrorism" jam for too long now, time for some classic rock 😉

*So the Democratic narrative is that the Russians prefer Trump because the Democrats took a hardline on the Crimea thing by doing... Nothing? Or cause they're aching for the global thermonuclear war Trump is allegedly probably more (though not at all) likely to provide?

** I dislike basically everything that comes out of Trump's mouth but he has been startlingly effective at exposing the commonality between establishment Republicans and Democrats. It all really leaves me wanting for an alternate world where we see if Pelosi is siding with Rubio against Sanders.

What if “Guccifer 2.0” is a hacker that made it look like he was with Russian Intelligence just to stir the pot?

An article sourced from internet complaints, some anonymous... fantastic journalism there.

End result, Costco doesn't care because way more people have Visa than Amex.

Since when do somewhat-better underlying numbers trump significantly better production over a short playoff, or even in the regular season, in anyone's mind?

Easy things are easy...

Want the fans to care? Make the players care.

Want the players to care? Change it from a financial disincentive to a financial incentive.

Set aside X millions of dollars devote it to making the players care. First, guarantee next years contract for anyone who gets hurt in the Pro Bowl. Second, put a standard Pro Bowl bonus in every players contract that doesn't count against the cap, say $500k for making it and $500k more for actually playing in it. Then pay $1M each to players who actually play on the winning team. Obviously these numbers are snatched out of thin air, larger ones may be required. If you're worried about where the money comes from, well if the players care the fans will care... if the fans care the gate and the TV ratings will make you lots and lots of money.

You'd also need to fix the selection process, make it a mix of fan vote, media vote, PFF (or something) grades and stats.

Point is, if you're actually I interested in fixing it the basic outline for doing so is very simple... $$$$$.
In very few of the criticisms of the Pro Bowl will you find a mention of Hawaii being a part of the problem. But the Pro Bowl is on the move, reportedly headed to Orlando, Fla.
