Cleveland Browns join 2008 Detroit
Lions as NFL´s only 0-16 teams

Detroit Free Press, by Carols Monarrez

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 1/1/2018 12:50:06 PM

PITTSBURGH — Move over, 2008 Detroit Lions. You have company. The Cleveland Browns have finished the season 0-16 and have equaled you in futility. With a 28-24 loss Sunday to the Pittsburgh Steelers before 50,704 at Heinz Field, the Browns joined the 2008 Lions as the only NFL teams to finish a season 0-16. And I have to say it feels good. Like a weight has been lifted from Detroit’s back. Like an ugly mole has been removed. Maybe it’s true that misery loves company. In a Twitter poll I posted before the game, 67 percent of more than 500

Comments:
And last year they were 1-15. Soul-crushing bad.

I found myself in a business yesterday that was playing a station with a NFL game on the TV. In the past I was interested / ambivalent about the game / players.

Imagine my surprise when I looked at the game and felt revulsion for the thugs on the field and the owners that allow and encourage their anti-social and unpatriotic behavior.

Am I the only one that has undergone a wholesale metamorphosis of attitude about the NFL and football?

Mostly, #1. The players are a problem, to be sure....they are the most visible example of the millennial generation raised on diet of SJW idiocy including pro-gay and pro-thug propaganda.

But the attitude towards the owners is shifting also. They are no longer regarded as pillars of the community or even sportsmen who ´just want to win.´ Instead, they are becoming known as venal, greedy, and insecure. TV money has made at least half the league content to cash a check and to heck with the game results.

The Browns lost to the Nittany Lions yesterday... Pittsburgh didn´t even play their starters!
Here´s what is truly amazing about all this - they insist, INSIST that they will be keeping this 31-1 coach! Not only that, but the coach stated that nobody in the NFL could have done his job any better! A guy who didn´t even win ONE game this season has the audacity to say this!! He should be fired on that statement alone!
I am truly living in a world I no longer understand!

Morgan Freeman left the SAG Awards audience on its feet on Sunday after delivering a short speech that touched on Hollywood’s gender inequality debate while accepting the guild’s life achievement award. “I wasn’t going to do this; I’m going to tell you what’s wrong with this statue,” he said. “It works from the back, but from the front, it’s gender specific. Maybe I started something.” After getting a standing ovation, Freeman took the stage and said, “This is beyond honor, this is a place in history.” He thanked SAG-AFTRA, his children, his business partner, his life partner, and Rita Moreno,

It’s billions of dollars over budget and seven years behind schedule, and appears to have no plausible way of living up to its goal of getting riders across the state in three hours or less. Welcome to what’s arguably the nation’s largest infrastructure project and California’s biggest boondoggle. The highly hyped bullet train has been a challenge from the start. No one thought it would be technically, financially and politically easy, but the way the project has been mishandled has some Californians fed up and demanding answers.

Star Wars toy sales fall as fatigue sets in

Posted By: NorthernDog- 1/20/2018 6:26:09     Post Reply
The warning signs for the toy industry started last year when “Cars 3” -- considered a surefire success -- proved lackluster for licensees like Mattel Inc. Now, toymakers’ big bets on movie tie-ins look downright bleak. Playthings based on the “Star Wars” saga -- the franchise that kicked off the whole phenomenon four decades ago -- were down in 2017 despite a new film, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” in December during the all-important holiday-shopping season. Call it “Star Wars” burnout, or better yet “movie fatigue,” said Gerrick Johnson, an analyst for BMO Capital Markets. Hollywood and toymakers have fixated

Washington - With hours to go before a midnight deadline for Congress to fund the government or shut it down, most Americans say avoiding a shutdown is more important than passing a bill to maintain the program allowing people brought to the US illegally as children to stay, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS. (Snip) Still, 56% overall say approving a budget agreement to avoid a shutdown is more important than continuing the DACA program, while just 34% choose DACA over a shutdown. Democrats break narrowly in favor of DACA -- 49% say it´s more important vs.

Apple said this would be the largest tax payment of its kind. While Cook would not "take a position" on how the new tax plan is affecting individuals´ taxes, he said $38 billion tax payment would

Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer’s (N.Y.) efforts to unify Democrats and prevent a shutdown are complicated by lawmakers with presidential hopes who are pushing for a hard-line stance against any short-term spending measure that doesn’t protect certain young immigrants from deportation. Senate Democrats such as Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Kamala Harris of California have signaled they will not support a short-term spending bill that leaves the fate of these immigrants, often called Dreamers, up in the air.

MOSCOW — Even thermometers can´t keep up with the plunging temperatures in Russia´s remote Yakutia region, which hit minus 67 degrees Celsius (minus 88.6 degrees Fahrenheit) in some areas Tuesday. In Yakutia — a region of 1 million people about 3,300 miles (5,300 kilometers) east of Moscow — students routinely go to school even in minus 40 degrees. But school was canceled Tuesday throughout the region and police ordered parents to keep their children inside.

This therapy session between NBA officials and players at All-Star weekend can’t come soon enough. As USA TODAY Sports reported last week, the sustained tension between the league’s referees and so many of its players has become such a concern that they will have a meeting in Los Angeles next month. Saturday night brought more flare-ups, as the Toronto Raptors were incensed at late calls in their loss against the Golden State Warriors. Raptors star DeMar DeRozan said it felt like they were playing “five on eight,” a comment that will likely bring a fine from the league. The Dallas Mavericks’

How illegal immigrant Dreamers amassed

Democrats called it the Trump shutdown. Republicans labeled it the Schumer shutdown. But in reality, it was the Dreamer shutdown. The recipe for the current congressional gridlock is complex, but at the top of the list of ingredients are the illegal immigrant Dreamers who pushed Democrats to launch the filibuster that sent the government careening into a partial shutdown. It’s a stunning display of political leverage for a group that, at most, numbers several million, can’t vote now, and even under the most generous proposals wouldn’t be able to cast ballots for another decade. Yet they have amassed an extraordinary amount of

It´s no secret that Mitt Romney is, in all likelihood, going to run for a Senate seat in Utah. What´s less clear, however, is why the man who was the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and is now retired and occupying an elder-statesman role in a party torn into warring factions would want to serve as a junior senator. Once elected, Romney would find himself embroiled in day-to-day congressional fights and less free to voice his criticisms of the White House, while losing some of the deference he´s been shown by members of his own party.

Investigators in both House and Senate were stunned late Friday when, receiving a batch of newly-released texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, they also received notice from the bureau that the FBI "failed to preserve" Strzok-Page messages from December 14, 2016 through May 17, 2017. Given the amount of texting that went on between Strzok and Page, who were having an extramarital affair, that probably meant thousands of missing documents. A number of critical events in the Trump-Russia affair occurred between December 2016 and May 2017, including: Conversations between Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey

Question: Do you think Donald Trump spends more time thinking about Hillary Clinton than Hillary Clinton spends thinking about Donald Trump? Sure does seem like it.
