16 posts in this topic

Matt Millen has been fired as GM of the Detroit Lions. Lions fans can now breath easier and hope for a decent draft next April for a change.

yeah it's bad for us. They have a very talented offense, but can't use it. They need to start paying attention to that defense and lay off the 1st round WR's

So Millen got fired, hopefully Glen Taylor see's this and shows McHale the door also.

Ding Ding Ding! We have a winner!

You are correct. If they can cut him loose, McHale could be next!

*****

Millen didn't have any success and that's what the NFL is all about. The decisions he made where popular...who to bring in, who to draft, etc. etc. But in the end nothing panned out. He never stuck to a plan for how he or his coaches wanted to mold a team. He needs a little time off. Would you want your front office hiring him?

Apparently he didn't have the goods on the boss like McFale does.

Are you sure he didn't have the goods on the Ford's......I mean he did lead them for 7+ years and never went to the playoffs and had a 31-84 record while GM.......after a while what ever they have on you just don't matter!!!

    • Ever notice how the politically bias media does everything it can to keep you voting for one side or another, can't let any 3rd parties in because the powers that be lose control. They are doing an amazing job with our minds that is for sure, both sides.
    • I would regulate the drugs just like alcohol, pretty easy actually. Now we would have to draw a line in the sand on what drugs are legal and which to keep illegal, we can't use public opinion for this because that is what got us in trouble in the first place. There have been numerous studies on drugs that at least give us an idea on how dangerous they are, things will get a little confusing because some legal drugs now are the most dangerous but there is no reason to go backwards with those drugs because we have already been there and it didn't work. I can't possibly cover every detail in a post so I am guessing you want to know which drugs to make legal and which should remain banned.

      Lethal dose chart, one could make a case for drawing a diagonal line to the right of caffeine.


      This chart can be a little deceiving because obviously some drugs that are used more than others but it tells an interesting story none the less.


      Another physical harm chart, these may or may not work but again just a guideline on drugs we could consider for legalization.
    • Anyone have one?  Last year they ran them on sale for $200 at the local farm n fleet.  That happens again i might have to gets me one!
    • Before anyone goes out and buys an ION....     Also Dewalt has a 9ah battery now too.   http://www.homedepot.com/p/DEWALT-FLEXVOLT-20-Volt-60-Volt-Lithium-Ion-9-0-Ahr-Battery-Pack-DCB609Y/300610594?cm_mmc=Shopping|THD|G|0|G-BASE-PLA-D25T-PowerTools|&gclid=CjwKEAiArbrFBRDL4Oiz97GP2nISJAAmJMFah6JUW7Wlbuw6Pzzf6CZFbYHwv3JOUaeQnfyiJpPemhoCm_Xw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds

    • So should I get a reality show first? Trust me the two parties are going to great job of taking themselves out. I am also unelectable with the current mindset the voters have so don't worry about me.

      In other news who needs Russia when the DHS is trying to hack our elections? Sure they might have been just been looking for weaknesses but it does seem a little unsettling that the fed wants to get their hands on the state systems.

    • Please describe in detail why the war on drugs has been successful and why we should continue with the same policies we have had for the past 3 decades or so.    I am really wondering what the timeline is for these policies to start working.
    •   If you use Prohibition as an example, speakeasies turned into bars and nightclubs, and bootleggers turned into pimps and politicians.  So that option for drug dealers is still open.   Of course if prostitution was legalized, about the only thing left would be to get into politics, so I guess some of them might have to turn to more honest professions like drug counseling or working for the FDA....   Drug stores could still operate under the eagle eye of the FDA and federal revenuers, and keep us all safe.   The big question is what would all the Carrie Nations of the world do?                                        
    •   The Republican party was originally formed as an opposition party to the Federalists, so now that the DNC and the RNC are both federalists, there is still room for a true republican party.
    • Is it happening this year?
