  1. This is one of the rare instances where both ways to read this work
  2. unfortunatley, ive heard these states are just going to strongly prohibit areas where carrying is allowed. still though, better than what they had before.
  3. i really only made that reply for the LOLz
  4. in my mind, unwanted incest is rape. if youre dumb enough to bang your sister and you knock her up, your punishment should be rasing your new mongoloid
  5. its typed words dude, no one is speaking
  6. someone let me know when were done screaming about other guys loads......
  7. i guess ill do OCs job today.... Del Rio's Twitter account has been a cesspool of right wing conspiracy theories for years. In the past, his players could probably just dismiss him as an idiot. But this time, he pissed off players enough that Rivera felt that some kind of punishment was a necessity. Players don't have to like coaches. Some coaches demand a lot of their players physically or mentally, and the players don't like it. Some players don't like how much playing time they're getting, or how they're being used within the scheme. That happens at every level of football, and is just a basic part of sports. When dislike becomes disrespect, that's a bigger problem, particularly for a figure as important as the head of the defense. MORE NFC EAST 10 reasons the Cowboys will be a dumpster fire this season 10 reasons the Giants will be a dumpster fire this season Ranking every Eagles wide receiver ever The strength of this team in 2021 was supposed to be the defense, but the Commanders finished 27th in defensive DVOA. Frankly, Del Rio is lucky he wasn't fired, because he isn't a good enough coach to be worth all this non-football attention. 3) Chase Young may not be ready for the start of the season Young is the Commanders' most physically gifted player. After a good rookie season, he only had two sacks through the first nine games of the 2021 regular season, when he tore his ACL in a November 14 win over the Buccaneers. He missed the rest of the season, obviously. Young will likely be placed on the PUP list prior to the start of training camp, and if he stays on PUP to begin the season, he would have to remain there for at least six games. Whenever he is ready to play again, Young may not have the same explosiveness initially that he had pre-injury. The Commanders are thinner along their defensive line than they have been the last couple of years as well, after losing Matt Ioannidis and Tim Settle in free agency. 4) The linebackers stink The Commanders' best linebacker is... um... Cole Holcomb? He's the only definite starter at linebacker, it appears. And then the other starting spot will be a battle between 2021 first-round linebacker Jamin Davis, who disappointed as a rookie, and a borderline 53-man roster-worthy guy in David Mayo. I'm not sure there's a team in the NFL that would trade their linebacker situation with Washington's. 5) The wide receiver situation is dicey, as always Terry McLaurin is a stud who is now rich, but beyond him, as always, there are only question marks. Curtis Samuel only played in five games last season, and had just six catches for 27 yards. Samuel signed a three-year contract worth $34.5 million last offseason, a questionable decision at the time that now looks awful. Samuel missed time during Washington minicamp with "overall soreness." So did I. Jahan Dotson is a rookie (who I actually like quite a bit), but a rookie nevertheless, and he's going to be counted on to contribute immediately. 6) Logan Thomas may not be ready for the start of the season Like Young above, Thomas tore an ACL last season. Thomas' occurred on December 5, which was Week 13 against the Raiders, ending his season. He also had a hamstring injury earlier in the season that cost him six games. If Thomas isn't ready for the start of the regular season, the Commanders are down to John Bates, a good blocker but not yet much of a threat as a receiver, and rookie Cole Turner, who was basically a big receiver at Nevada. With a questionable receiving corps, the Commanders really need Thomas to be the player he was in 2020, when he had 72 catches and 6 TDs. That's probably not happening. 7) They got worse along the interior of their offensive line Brandon Scherff quietly played out his rookie contract in full, including his fifth-year option, and was then franchise tagged twice. In his first opportunity to hit the free agent market, Scherff signed a three-year deal worth $49.5 million with the Jaguars. In his seven years in Washington, Scherff made five Pro Bowls and was named a First-Team All-Pro in 2020. They also cut Ereck Flowers, opening up two holes at guard. One of those holes was filled by Andrew Norwell, who has started 111 games over an eight-year NFL career. He formerly played for Rivera in Carolina from 2014-2017, because of course he did. They also added Trai Turner, who has started 104 games over an eight year NFL career. He formerly played for Rivera in Carolina from 2014-2019, because of course he did. Norwell may be a slight upgrade over Flowers, but losing Scherff is huge blow. 😎 Scott Turner hasn't shown much as an offensive coordinator In three years as an offensive coordinator, Turner hasn't ever finished in the top 20 in overall offensive DVOA or passing DVOA. Scott Turner Offensive DVOA Passing DVOA 2019 (Panthers) 27 31 2020 (Commanders) 32 32 2021 (Commanders) 21 22 Good luck, Carson. 9) Their cornerback depth and safeties aren't great? I don't know, who cares? Let's just get to Snyder already. 10) I mean, Dan Snyder is just suuuuuch a POS 💩 I don't even know where to start, but by the time you read this, there will be three or four new bombshell accusations made against Dan Snyder. My apologies for omitting them here. In other words, if you think I've missed something below, you're right! For the purpose of achieving some reasonable level of brevity, we'll try to just focus on rounding up Snyder's most recently reported sinister misdeeds. Back in 2020, The Washington Post published a bombshell report in which more than a dozen women alleged sexual harassment and verbal abuse by former team employees of Washington's football organization. This marked the beginning of the investigation of Snyder and the R-words/Football Team/Commanders, as it pertained to the pattern of sexual misconduct within its walls and elsewhere. Snyder mostly avoided any direct hits within the 2020 piece, aside from allegedly ordering one of his sales executives, a former (male) cheerleader in college, to do cartwheels for his enjoyment. Snyder was also criticized for not doing more to create a workable environment for his female employees. An internal investigation of Washington's workplace culture ensued, led by D.C. attorney Beth Wilkinson. The initial result of that investigation, in July of 2021, was a $10 million fine for Snyder by the NFL. The findings of the investigation were never made public. The NFL's refusal to publicly release the findings led to the House Committee on Oversight and Reform to launch its own investigation of the Commanders' organization, in October of 2021. A week ago today, the Committee released "new evidence of Snyder's role in creating a hostile workplace and his efforts to undermine investigations." 😬 First, from the Committee's memo in regard to Snyder's role in creating a toxic workplace: • "Mr. Snyder’s former Chief Operating Officer, David Pauken, testified at a Committee deposition that when Mr. Snyder learned that a member of the team’s coaching staff had groped a public relations employee, Mr. Snyder refused to take action against the coach and instead directed that the victim 'stay away from the coach.'" • "Mr. Pauken explained that Mr. Snyder fired female employees who engaged in consensual relationships with male members of the team’s football operations. Describing one such situation, Mr. Pauken explained, 'The female employees were fired, the male employee was — there were no repercussions other than he was restricted from additional sex with the cheerleaders.'" • "A former long-time employee described how the team’s culture 'glorified drinking and womanizing,' and recalled an instance when Mr. Snyder had pressured him to drink excessively. He explained that employees were afraid to speak out 'because they had seen so many others lose their jobs.'" While we're at it, we should probably remember this report from The Washington Post from 2020, in which cheerleaders posed in the Dominican Republic for a video released for sale to the public that contained no nudity, but a second video was allegedly created for team executives with "the good bits," without the cheerleaders' consent. Next, here's the evidence the Committee found that shows Snyder launched a shadow investigation to discredit his accusers in the eyes of the NFL: • "Lawyers for Mr. Snyder used their shadow investigation to create a 100-slide dossier with private emails, text messages, telephone records, and social media posts from journalists, victims, and witnesses who had made credible public accusations of harassment against the Commanders." • "During the Wilkinson investigation, Mr. Snyder and his lawyers sent private investigators to the homes of former cheerleaders, offered hush money to try to dissuade them from cooperating with the investigation, and gathered thousands of emails from former Commanders President Bruce Allen in an effort to 'demonstrate that Bruce Allen had created a toxic environment at the Washington Commanders.'" • "Mr. Snyder’s lawyers had direct access to the NFL and the law firm conducting the investigation, and secretly shared information from their shadow investigation in an apparent attempt to influence the Wilkinson investigation." The "dossier" noted above is extremely creepy. And finally, the Committee "uncovered information" that casts doubt on the NFL's claim that the internal investigation into the toxic workplace was independent. • "The NFL initially allowed Mr. Snyder to investigate his own team, including his role in the toxic work environment, and only took over the investigation after multiple public reports revealed that Mr. Snyder was personally implicated in sexual misconduct." • "After the League took over the investigation, the NFL and the Commanders entered into a common interest agreement that gave Mr. Snyder a back-channel to make confidential presentations to the NFL and block the release of information." • "A retainer agreement between the NFL and the law firm handling the internal investigation established that a written report of the findings would be completed at the conclusion of the investigation, but NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, in a break with previous practice, changed course and requested oral briefings instead, further ensuring the findings would not come to light." In regard to the bullet point above noting Snyder's personal implication in sexual misconduct, The Washington Post reported last Tuesday that a former employee accused Snyder of groping her on one of the team's private planes. The $1.6 million payout had been reported by The Washington Post in 2020, but the allegations were not known until this latest report. In the Committee's memo, links to full transcripts of depositions were included, and sure enough, some interesting stories emerged. Like this: And this: Oh, and he's also being investigated for using "two books" to track finances. In summary, Dan is in some trouble. And again, there's plenty more that we could have rounded up here. The Committee initially kindly invited Snyder to a deposition, but he was like, "Oh hey Committee. How's it going? I'd really love to talk with you guys and be super cooperative and junk but I'm out of the country. Such a bummer. I'm sure we'll hook up soon, tho. 👍" And then when the Committee said, "Oh that's OK, we don't need you be in person. It can be over Zoom," Snyder was like, "Ahhhh, yeaaaah, see, I'm on my boat, and the reception here... gee whiz, it's just not that great." So then the Committee subpoenaed Snyder, and he was like, "Ooooh, yeah, I'm really sorry, but that date just isn't going to work for me. Hope you guys are good!" Apparently you can track the movements of Snyder's yacht, on which Snyder is essentially hiding out until, what, this all blows over? I honestly kinda feel bad for Commanders fans. They love football, like the rest of us, and it causes them to kid themselves about maybe enjoying each upcoming season (as it would with most fan bases). But deep down they already know what the outcome is going to be before it begins, and it has to be utterly exhausting following along as this creep little owner takes advantage of everyone in his path while putting a crap product on the field every year.
