    Dareus charged in lawsuit with sexual assault

    That's utterly unfair! Prior to this we had a president assassinated here, iirc.

    LeSean McCoy allegations

    So, despite his friend serving her child, the ex claims he never asked her to leave? ...and I'm sure McCoy is all like...
  3. Just a matter of tossing one of several quantifiers out there. "I believe...", "In my opinion...", "I honestly expect to see...", "What I think...", replace "when the" with "should the" ...anything that changes it from sounding like an absolute.

    2018 Playoff game vs Jags

    ...actually, the broadcasters themselves, on multiple occasions, pointed out when Bills' receivers were wide open and Tyrod just didn't throw to them for some reason. They even mused and wondered aloud why TT didn't throw to them. Sorry, that loss is 99% on Tyrod.

    LeSean McCoy allegations

    Way too many assumptions going on here. Some people are already assuming Shady did it. Some are already assuming he was framed. Some people assuming that if you consider the idea she either set this up herself or took an unrelated attack and lied to blame Shady at least plausible that you are a horrible human being for even considering such a possibility. Some people are assuming that if you suggest there might be a possibility McCoy was set up that, by default, you are blaming the victim and are a horrible human being. And far too many people assuming others have already made up their minds, even if they specifically say they want to wait for some real evidence to appear before deciding one way or the other. That this woman was beaten is absolutely horrible, regardless of who did it. At the same time, that beating in no way sways my opinion on whether or not McCoy was involved...an opinion that has, and continues to remain "There is nowhere near enough (if any) evidence to determine whether or not McCoy was involved and I refuse to declare him innocent or guilty until we have enough evidence to determine that." I refuse to join a lynch mob based solely on hear-say and speculation. If that makes me an uncaring monster, so be it. It is plausible that Shady did it. It is plausible someone did it on his behalf unbidden, it is plausible the attack was completely unrelated and she's lying to frame McCoy. And the least likely, yet still slightly plausible possibility is she did this to herself, or had someone do it to her...so she could frame McCoy. Four completely plausible possibilities and as of yet, no way to discredit any of them. So, wild as this sounds, why don't we just let the police do their job and come to conclusions based on fact and evidence, rather then bias and conjecture?

    So, to be clear...should he be cleared of all these allegations, you won't be coming back? 😉

    Friendly Reminder: Nothing has been proven in this case, and there has yet to be any hard evidence presented against him. Before I pass judgement on McCoy, I'm going to wait and see what facts come out of this. But if you want to jump the gun, make assumptions and prematurely declare him guilty based on nothing more then here-say, you do you.

    Yep, just walk away. MURPHD6 was proven wrong and still has yet to provide any proof his definition of 'plausible' is correct. He's spinning his wheels. Lemmie help illustrate the differences... Possible: Bills get 16 wins Plausible: Bills get 10-12 wins Probable: Bills get 6-9 wins

    No...I really don't. I am now one of three people that have provided evidence you are in the wrong. You...have provided no actual evidence you are in the right. I've wasted enough time actually looking things up. You seem ready to easily handwave away what we've said while providing nothing to back your own assertions. It's like arguing with a child. "Well, you have to admit, this proves..." "Nu-unh!" "Look, all the evidence sh..." "NU-UNH!!!". Sorry, not wasting any more time. I proved my point. Time you actually prove yours.

    Bam! You are my hero, dude. Not that he'll listen, of course...

    So...to recap. "The Merriam-Webster definition says you're wrong, use the Oxford!" "Umm...the Oxford definition supports me." "Not that definition, the other one!" "The only other one is '1.1 (of a person) skilled at producing persuasive arguments, especially ones intended to deceive.' which doesn't fit at all! "You're an idiot for just using the obvious listed definitions for a word! There's another definition buried somewhere in there which I will not point out or quote/list at all that proves me right!" "Of course there is, bud. Of course there is." ...yeah, I'm done talking to you. You insisted we use the Oxford definition, which I then hung you with. Game, set and match. I think I'll keep using the word the way I have been, given that every definition and dictionary supports it. Ta!

    That...was the Oxford definition. The one you insisted on using. The definition you wanted to use...proved you wrong. Good grief. 😒 https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/plausible "1(of an argument or statement) seeming reasonable or probable." ...as stated prior, do your homework. You just proved me right.

    LeSean McCoy allegations

    Oh, you mean this definition? "(of an argument or statement) seeming reasonable or[/b] probable." ...highlighted the key word for you there. Or. My proper use of the word was the former, you're still claiming the latter. So...thank you for outright proving the use of the word correct. Again, do your homework next time. Check, and mate.

    Plausible =/= likely. Plausible = possible. Do your homework. From Merriam-Webster themselves... "appearing worthy of belief" the argument was both powerful and plausible" It is entirely possible for a situation to have multiple, plausible outcomes. I am not defending McCoy. I am, as I have been, defending the simple fact that there isn't enough evidence to determine what actually happened, and that there are multiple possibilities, all plausible! Also from Merriam-Webster: "A plausible explanation is one that sounds as if it could be true." Try actually researching a word next time before critisizing someone else's use of it.
