  1. Followed by the the documentary about the key grip of the camera man who filmed the documentary on the scout. Who was doing his job.
  2. I just did the playoff simulator. If the Bills, Steelers, Texans, and Titans all finish 10-6, the Bills are in.
  3. True. I guess people expect ethics to play a role in the decision making of cutthroat competitive athletic businesses and its people.
  4. It seems that as long as the Ravens beat the Browns and the Saints beat the Titans, we would get in at 9-7. Also the Raiders have to lose one more, but they look terrible. So we are in a good position to get in. Obviously going 3-0 is the best!

  6. Strength training can help you increase bone strength and muscular fitness, and it can help you manage or lose weight. It can also improve your ability to do everyday activities. Aim to include strength training of all the major muscle groups into your fitness routine at least twice a week. Most fitness centers offer various resistance machines, free weights and other tools for strength training. But you don't need to invest in a gym membership or expensive equipment to reap the benefits of strength training. Hand-held weights or homemade weights — such as plastic soft drink bottles filled with water or sand — may work just as well. Resistance bands are another inexpensive option. Your own body weight counts, too. Try pushups, pullups, abdominal crunches and leg squats. The muscles in your abdomen, lower back and pelvis — known as your core muscles — help protect your back and connect upper and lower body movements. Core strength is a key element of a well-rounded fitness training program. Core exercises help train your muscles to brace the spine and enable you to use your upper and lower body muscles more effectively. So what counts as a core exercise? A core exercise is any exercise that uses the trunk of your body without support, such as bridges, planks, situps and fitness ball exercises.
  7. Moved out in 2001. Went back to cold weather for one year (Philly). Moved back west. Once you leave the cold, it's much harder to go back. I do miss a lot things in Buffalo. Even after you leave you get the same stupid weather comments from people.
  8. I prefer a dome. I went to both L.A. teams temporary stadiums, the Bills and the Cardinals this season. The Cardinals by far was the most comfortable stadium. It's not just the weather, but also the seats. So, a dome with nice new comfortable seats would be fantastic for my once a year visit to Buffalo.
  9. Carr was assigned the negative narrative by the network.
  10. Carr is a tool who has his commentary scripted by NFL network!!
  11. Certainly possible. But as my examples show, there are objective conditions that drive capital. I understand deeply rooted inherent bias. But I do not need any bias to state that, for instance, logging displaces certain animal species. What mystifies our understanding is the layer of ideology that covers the objective conditions. In the NFL, we know as a corporation, it seeks maximum profits. From that fact, we can see how their practices fulfill this aim.
  12. Good questions. Overall, this is hard to prove. We really would have to rely on precedents set by other corporations and apply their business practice to the NFL. It seems that all levels of planning would keep plausible deniability in place. One document or plan would probably not emerge. Rather, the practice or plan would emerge or emerges from a set of circumstantial data. Take hiring of minorities in 1960s. You will not find a document or business plan that states: do not hire minorities. But you will see that minorities simply do not get hired, despite claims of the opposite, e.g. we are an equal opportunity employer. More explicitly related to profit is, let's say, oil companies.There will be no documents that state "we will displace this Native tribe or we will damage this ecosystem", but those things will happen and are implicit in business plans. So, employees (officials) simply understand the aims of the corporation and comply. Like a New York Times writer understands that they cannot write a story from a fascist or communist perspective because it will not be profitable or aligned with the politics of the paper and it will not get published. Sometimes when things like this are revealed, corporations do lose revenue. So, it is an on going process of aims toward profit that are only revealed through somewhat long term study and an analysis of how corporations function. There is no single who, but rather a host of related forces that determine the central practice of the business. This is the beauty of bureaucracy and capitalism, but also this is what makes it so problematic.
