I've been ignoring that advice for thirty years already so I'm not sure what would make you think I would change my tune now.

Then have a heart attack because all of the decisions made are by people whose lives you have no effect upon, and their decisions have no direct effect upon yours. Sports are entertainment. Entertainment isn't intended to be taken seriously. It is, in fact, intended to be a break from what should be taken seriously. I'd be stunned if anyone believed the content of these posts.

Shanahan isn't going to draft a 2-3 year project qb. We don't have that luxury. He is far more likely to go after more NFL-ready qb's like Mallet and Locker.

Because you've been ignoring it for thirty years. Where has that gotten you?

Yes. It would be funny. It would also be coincidental as opposed to ironic. I would hope we would draft him if he were available. His upside is truly ridiculous - and I don't mean that humorously... and someone might need to lighten up a hair. Good lord!

I'm not the sort of person who changes my viewpoints or opinions very easily. Never have been and I don't see that changing. I'll go right on ignoring that advice for another thirty years.

Taking sports as seriously as I do has never gotten me anywhere. Nor has it ever kept me from getting anywhere.

I'll have plenty of time to lighten up when I'm dead. Until then I'll continue to be as serious as Cancer, especially when it comes to the important things in life, like SPORTS.

100% CERTAIN that I have not lost a single thing that I would care about in the least, due to it.

From the famous "I'm done" thread:

Redskins_Fanatic wrote:I spent the night after the Houston loss in my car because I was so pissed off that I picked a fight with my roommate. I got locked out of the apartment for the night and am no longer allowed to watch ANY sports in the apartment.

Just one more lie from the fanatic.

You seem to be under the mistaken idea that my housing situation is something that I care about or need. You would be very wrong in that assumption. The reason I ended up locked out was for THEIR safety and nothing else.

You lost your bed for the night, and had to sleep in your car. You lost the trust of your roommates. Maybe you ought to rethink your position of intransigence.

I haven't had the trust of my roommates in probaly 8-10 years. They've NEVER gotten any level of trust from me.

I am who and what I am. They've had the right to throw me out of the apartment at any time in the last 12 years (they hold the lease, not me). They also know that they'll be bankrupt 4 months later if they do; which is why they're really hoping I'm not able to get a new job and move out of Massachusetts this year, like I want to.

You're the only roommate available in Massachusetts?

I'm the only one who has known these two people for almost 20 years and who is willing to put up with THEIR bologna/garbage on a daily basis (mostly because the financial deal is pretty darn good). They have their own quirks that most people would not put up with in roommates.
