#2626204 Model Tries to Blackmail Jagr

Posted by Mckinley25 on 21 September 2015 - 01:50 PM

Who else wishes Jagr still had that mullet in the selfie?  


Hey, remember when you had to get pictures developed and you didn't know what they looked like until you got them back and your deadline for the trading card submission was in like 7 minutes? Those were wild times.

We need our guards to hold up on the o line and not let Stafford get blown up, then the d won't be on the field so much and won't give up 21+ point leads.

And getting deadre levy healthy will help a lot too, dudes one of the best linebackers in the league, and I hear his beard hangs out with zetterbeard on the weekend.

#2626024 Verrier has broken leg; Helm possible concussion

Darren Helm has grade 1 slight shoulder separation. Out 2-4 weeks, Ken Holland said. Still going through concussion protocol.


...injured he is, fragile he is, Barbie doll he is. Was told this for two years now you were.

#2625005 Kane case headed to grand jury

Posted by kipwinger on 09 September 2015 - 08:55 AM

If Kopitar or Quick got caught with pills would their contracts be terminated?


Lol. About as quickly as Kane's will be.  Sports is a business, and the people that run sports teams operate them as such.  Every fan wants championships, new stadiums, and flashy free agents.  You do that by winning and putting butts in the seats.  And sometimes, to do that, GMs are willing to ignore the ethical imperatives.  I'm not saying it's right, I'm just saying it is what it is.  Businesses exist to make money, not to enforce the social good.  Expecting them to do the latter, rather than the former, will always disappoint. 


Our very own Mike Illitch does plenty of unethical things in the name of our team.  Nobody calls him out on it.  So lets not pretend its just a  Kings or Hawks problem.

#2624956 Kane case headed to grand jury

Posted by F.Michael on 08 September 2015 - 05:53 PM

I would think a settlement is likely.  If he's not guilty, she's going to take the settlement and run.  If he's guilty, she may well rather end it with something than face a jury and have to recount the most horrific thing that's ever happened to her, knowing that in such a high-profile case people will be glued to every word.


If I were in her shoes (assuming he's guilty), I'd take the money.  Justice would not be served, but if you find yourself in that situation, sometimes your own peace comes before the greater good.  At least he's been exposed and other women will be warned.

Well said.

That is the problem : It will never completely go away if he agrees on a settlement. But processes like this tend to get very ugly for the accused weather he or she is guilty or not so it's absolutely understandable if Kane wants to get out of this without the case going to trial.

Things also tend to get disgusting for the victim in these situations, so while I don't *agree* with her settling if Kane is in fact guilty, I certainly *understand* it.

And therein lies the problem with trials by jury

It is definitely not a perfect system, but what's the alternative use one "nuetral" arbitrators/judge? I can promise you that nuetral is a very loose term with outside arbitration. The problem doesn't lie within the system alone, but within human nature.
