    NBA opinions

    Good article. Almost good enough for it's own thread.

    Not to make light on a serious issue, but thought this headline was confusing: The Guardian view on Donald Trump’s immigration policy: hateful and wrong https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/jun/19/the-guardian-view-on-donald-trumps-immigration-policy-hateful-and-wrong Syntax-wise, is the Guardian view hateful and wrong, or the immigration policy?

    Yeah I agree that 100% isn't reasonable. There are many issues with a wall- appearance, upkeep, wildlife, private property rights, etc. And it probably won't stop illegal immigration, anyway. It will probably end up being a big expensive metaphor signifying "loving your solution, not the problem".

    And there it is! Playing the "your playing a race card!" card. 😉

    I actually wrote mine on Father's Day. Can't say it is my first time- but I can say it is the second. Sure the issue is complex, but not separating families is a simple concept. Zero tolerance doesn't mean zero thinking. Trump has the ability to stop this practice now and as bad as the "zero tolerance" policy is, letting this go on is a worse one.

    I’m thinking about picking up Howard in my dynasty fantasy league.

    Bill Connelly TCU preview

    https://www.sbnation.com/college-football/2018/6/13/17434332/tcu-football-2018-preview-schedule-roster Always like his statistics heavy analysis. He's pretty favorable but realistic on our chances.

    When people call Newf "professor", I usually start thinking about Gilligan's Island.

    Fantasy Baseball 2018

    That happens in lots of leagues. I don't think a limit is the right answer. Never seen it before in a league. I thought it was a head-scratcher of a rule to begin with, but not being able to use SP/RP eligible pitchers unless you drop a RP is an unintended consequence that makes the rule too obtrusive. I think a better answer than a rule is to adjust strategy accordingly. Free market answer, not a centralized regulation! 😏

    We'll have to reconsider this only 3 relievers rule. Can't pick up a SP/RP to start because of it.

    #NeverTrumpers had Trump pegged all along https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/right-turn/wp/2018/05/25/nevertrumpers-had-trump-pegged-all-along/?utm_term=.a51d883b7243

    Interesting Vox article on the topic and risk of dehumanizing language like "animals". https://www.vox.com/science-and-health/2018/5/17/17364562/trump-animals-dehumanization-psychology

    It's true that Trump's quote needs context, but seems to me the Times article is pretty clear on the context: As he has in numerous private meetings with his advisers at the White House, Mr. Trump used the session to vent about the nation’s immigration laws, calling them “the dumbest laws on immigration in the world.” He exhorted his administration to “do much better” in keeping out undesirable people, including members of transnational gangs like MS-13. “We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in — we’re stopping a lot of them,” Mr. Trump said in the Cabinet Room during an hour long meeting that reporters were allowed to document. “You wouldn’t believe how bad these people are. These aren’t people, these are animals, and we’re taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that’s never happened before.” https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/16/us/politics/trump-undocumented-immigrants-animals.html Maybe the title should be more clear than "some", but it is actually a pretty fairly written article on this news story, IMO.

    Bowl Schedule is out

    That Liberty Bowl date and time seems less than ideal. Edit- looked it up - that should be Mon Dec 31st, not 21st.
