  1. Well, I wouldn't go that far..... The thing to remember is that the news media's first priority is generating revenue by selling ads. More eyes, more ratings, pricier ads. That's what they're concerned about. However, that doesn't mean that they're totally wrong. "Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean that nobody is out to get me" is a good way of looking at it. However, this thing has been totally over-hyped for the most of us. The media is literally creaming their panties over the fact that they have a constant stream of bad news to send our way. This is in red print on Drudge today. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/experts-trumps-advisers-doubt-white-houses-240000-coronavirus-deaths-estimate/ar-BB1263eT Big news... experts and Trump's advisors doubt white house figures is the headline. So I read it. It basically says that "we don't like the predictions put out, but we don't know if they're high or low... We just know that we disagree" with a heavy dose of "Trump bad." I also read a similar article a few days ago that predicted 100,000-240,000 American deaths due to Coronavirus... Within hours I was seeing headlines that read "Experts predict 240,000 American deaths." I'll be the first to admit that there's some bad things going down in NYC and NOLA right now. I think it'll continue to get worse, then get better. When you go back over time, you can see Black Plague, Bubonic Plague, Swine Flu, SARS, Spanish Flu, etc.... the one thing that they all have in common is that the human race persisted. Sometimes we just need a little reminder that we're still a part of the animal kingdom and disease (regardless of how far modern medicine advances) is still a fact of life... and always will be. My opinion is that a year from now we'll all be fighting off some nasty bugs that were forced to adapt based on our new obsession with antibacterials. I expect that we can all expect a ferocious round of stomach bugs and common colds next winter.
  2. https://nymag.com/intelligencer/2020/04/new-york-refrigerated-truck-bodies.html I don't know, man... any time that they start loading the bodies in semi-trailers I get a little concerned. But that's just me.
  3. So who was last years' six man or TAPPS champion? Nobody can answer that without looking it up. Everybody knows who the big school champions were.... because they obviously matter more.
  4. The question was worded about greatest football player EVER from the Golden Triangle. I took that to mean guys who’d gone on to greater success. Is anybody local in the NFL HOF? I know Jimmy Johnson will go in this summer, but not for being a football player. The only local NFL MVP that I can recall is Mark Moseley (Livingston), and that’s not even Golden Triangle.
  5. Yeah... Kinda like Jasper being ranked #2 last year, huh? BURN!!!!!
  6. Maybe you could be Roy and Santa could be Siegfried ... or vice versa. I'll be honest.... I'm stockpiling tons of new Tiger material for football season. I doubt anybody will be more disappointed than I if they end up canceling it.
  7. Sooooooooo...... are you gonna change your username to "Tiger King?" I would. lol.
  8. I bet the mods are laughing at you right now , you know the ones that are privy to the I.P. addresses .They know when multiple accounts are set to the same I.P. I bet CardinalBacker is too. You are a regular Sherlock Holmes !
  9. Bad news, boys.... https://www.politico.com/news/2020/03/30/irs-orders-office-evacuation-affecting-most-agency-employees-155502 If the IRS is sending home most of their employees, I kinda wonder whose gonna be there to press "send" on all of those stimulus checks? Obviously the treasury department will be issuing them, but they need data from the IRS to do so.
  10. I never said "most money." But definitely the best coaches are correspondingly paid the best. You have some outliers like Carthage and Barbers Hill who are willing to throw cash at top tier guys, but typically your best coaches (and therefore highest paid) are in the bigger schools. That's not a knock on guys like CT and WT Johnston who are legendary coaches in their own right. The only reason that both haven't gone on to bigger schools is that they are well aware that their styles and techniques won't work in larger, nicer areas like they do in Newton and West Orange. The kids and parents would revolt. So I'll ask you a question... please answer honestly. Does a Junior College National Championship "matter" as much as the NCAA Division I Natty? If so, please explain.
  11. By your logic the cowboys ARE one of the best teams in the NFL. They have five championships, just like the Eagles. it doesn’t really matter that it took a hundred years to get them.
  12. I just turned it on last weekend... I hadn’t heard anything about it, but I watched the whole thing. Nobody could make up a story like that. Joe mostly wanted to be famous... I hope somebody tells him how famous he is right now.
