    You know what the United story did for us? We finally got to stop hearing about a certain referee nonstop.

      True, but it was too similar to the things that happen in China and Russia…police states.
      That’s not something we want in our country.

      Yeah i can’t believe they can find that many stupid people in the same airport and i am talking about the Doctor to. Thanks guys

      It doesn’t matter if he was a doctor or a homeless person who spent his last 400 bucks on a plane ticket.
      He paid.
      He had boarded.
      The flight was NOT overbooked.
      United had numerous options to transport their employees to Louisville that did NOT displace people who may have booked and paid months ahead of time.
      Using law enforcement to protect corporate convenience and profits at the expense of the well being of paying customers is beyond despicable.
      If you want to bend over to false authority please do so.

      Yeah, that doctor is definitely playing his cards to maximize his settlement. I think he has been in the hospital since it happened. Not to make light of the situation at all, but you would think that he got roughed up by Hulk Hogan and was in traction. I don’t think there will be any true “good guys” from this situation by the time it is all finished.

      The doctor’s reputation and criminal history was irrelevant; United could not have known about that. That could have happened, randomly, to any one of us.
      All you have to see is the reaction of the other passengers; they were screaming “NO, No”,
      “What are you doing”? “Stop, Stop”.

      C&M, you hit the nail on the head – one reason that this story really resonates with the public is that it is a perfect allegory about corporate America kicking the common man in the nuts to maximize the almighty dollar. This time it blew up in their face, and the common man is taking great delight (and outrage) in it.

      You get settled in at the Hilton. The management calls and asks you to leave because some of their management staff needs a room that night at the full hotel. You refuse to give up your room.
      They call the police and have you dragged from your room.
      If any of this situation happened prior to getting your (seat) room…it becomes a different story.
      If you are ok with any business treating a customer in such a manner you deserve any ass-kicking from the police that you get. Profession of the customer is irrelevant to the situation.

      Hard to imagine any business bumping paid customers out of line for employees, but airlines are one of those (like cable / internet) where they don’t even pretend to care about customer service, because they don’t have to.

      But anyways, these responses back up my hope that the rooferee’s 15 minutes of attention are over.

    • If C&M runs for office, the slogan will be “C&M, for the people!”

    • C&M and RCF, it is because we have let the government and the airlines get away with the thought that flying is a privilege and not a liberty. Security is one thing, this is (obvs) quite another.

      Having served on numerous boards and committees at UK and in my profession, one thing is clear: those that WANT to be elected are most likely the worst possible choice. My New Hampshire birth doesn’t allow me to stray far from the motto “Live Free or Die.” Just want to live 😎
      I have little hope or faith in any of our elected officials and it is our fault.

      i still think this whole thing is blown way out of proportion. did united screw up? yes.
      but we still don’t know their intentions. they are being blasting because those 4 people bought tickets and were taken off the plane. so that united employees could get back to Louisville.

      who’s to say those 4 employees were needed for another flight. What if an entire plane couldn’t take off because those employees were stranded in Chicago. now we are talking about ~100 people that couldn’t travel instead of just 4.

      Again, I’m not saying they *should* have knocked the dude out and dragged him off the plane. just saying there is a scenario where their intentions (not actions) are justified.

      Airlines all have reciprocal agreements that their employees can fly with each other for free though. Also, they should have planned ahead better. They knew they needed a flight crew in Louisville well in advance. We all book flights months in advance. Plan better.

      I could see it being a “someone got sick” situation if it was one, maybe two people. But it was four, which to me at least, indicates a lack of planning.

  3. Hey guys! I’ve been too busy for the ST lately, but wanted to do “the pop-in” today. I’ll be busy the next couple days because we’re taking our daughter to a church youth convention in the ATL over the weekend.

    Speaking of that, RCF, I appreciate the way you talk about your daughters here. You sound like a loving dad!

    Good luck to the Aussie in the pros, wherever that will be.

      I am muy guilty of appropriation every time I cook a meal…every time. Even if I cook New England Clam “Chowda”, no doubt I am appropriating the culture of Gloucester and the Cape. I guess Maple Syrup is my only safe bet.

      In some circles, you can’t wear sombreros or wear feathers with warpaint at Halloween.

      J-Dub, you are right – Calhoun was a crotchety old “get off my lawn” buzzard, and he was a cheater as well. People like to try to rag on Cal for being shady, and I always say “you are talking about the wrong Cal”.

    It is fun to listen to Isaac talk. His accent is adorable and he’s quite charming. I know I’ve said this a lot lately, but Cal really does bring in the nicest guys. I haven’t worried about our players ending up in the news (in a bad way) for quite some time.

    Speaking of a player being yelled at to rebound: I thought it was funny that Malik said in Cal’s podcast that his mom didn’t try to coach him a lot, but when she did it was always to yell at him to rebound and defend. Sounds familiar. πŸ™‚ Really good interview with him and then De’Aaron if you guys haven’t listened.

      That just goes to show that kids never listen to their parents. I try to tell my older daughter to not swing her arms when passing a volleyball (I’m a coach), and she rolls her eyes at me. And what does the coach on her club team tell her? “Hold your platform still, and don’t swing it”. πŸ™‚
