None seem to work. But now I got your f***ing attention huh? Too bad I had to reduce my post's intelligence level to do it, but I think I was finally successful.


Nice BigD, sarcastic glee at my leaving, I didn't see that coming. Great success.
excuse me for not begging you to stay. Quite honestly there was no need for all of the personal attacks you did in this thread. It was uncalled for.

Yes it was called for. Normal adult methods of reasoning were not working. You two continue to post in the thread that you already called ridiculous. There are names for people who do that and have 2000+ posts in less than a year, they are typically referred to as "trolls." Again thats some nice work. I'm just waiting for you to post "I thought you were leaving?", and then the douchebaggery will be complete.

Nobody commented on my example reference to the change in Belichick.

Instead I have the three stooges talking about Socrates and stuff.

Tony I would be more than willing to discuss this thread further for you. I'm going to go look for an ignore feature for those three though.
it was a great point. and true. bealichick has earned the right to look and act like an ass.

as far as the looks aspect i will add to it.

bill gates. college drop out, blue jeans type guy. looks like a geek
donald trump. graduates from wharton. gets all the girls

both are sharp as a tack, but if it came down to hiring one (assuming it was before all their current success) d. trump probably gets the job EVERY time.

im just guessing here but when it comes to closing a deal, i bet trump has more success. when it comes to developing a product and pushing it (more behind the scenes stuff, i bet gates has the edge)

appearance definitely matters and fat vs. skinny certainly applies. i just dont think it applies as much to being a head coach as say it would in the board room or fitness trainers.

i know obeisety rates are going up in america (just like they have in football). im curious if the % of fat players in football is the same as fat people in the general population

no, I will tell you that this thread and your arguements are very offensive. And I think many on this board will tell you i'm not a troll. But think what you want.

Good analogy. I think we would actually have to ask the players themselves how much it matters to them and the F.O. people making the hiring decisions. I'm sure in the case of Grimm, since they know him to be qualified its not an issue at all, maybe its not even that much of an issue in the NFL at all because most if not all coaches need to have a proven track record before getting the job, whereas maybe in college football some coaches are picked up from lower tier schools many people have no idea about.

They are meant to be offensive, just like I find you and Sumo interrupting Tony and I's debate with stupidity that doesn't add to the conversation to be offensive. So I've done my job. You go to your corner and I'll go to mine.

Your wish is my command. Sorry, Tony and the others who posted in this thread with good intentions.

THREAD CLOSED.
