    Looks like you were first!

    I was hoping to be at the Russell Springs show today, but that didn’t work out. Enjoyed it last time, Mitchell crew at Lawless-Smith True Value put on a Great Event.

    I Wish someone would KIll the adchoices ads. They kill my desire to even attempt to get on this site anymore. CFD- Out!

    • Yeah, those iPad ads are annoying. At least on the PC I can use an ad blocker on the Chrome browser. Not so much on iPad.

      Adblock plus is available for apple products too, I know because I have and apple computer with adblock plus installed and the reason I don’t know what ads you’re talking about is because I don’t see ANY!

      The L-ville stuff is about to hit so it should pick up soon. I know i’m awful for hating on the cards.

      I don’t really hate little brother; but, that said, plying underage recruits with hookers is grounds for the death penalty…but the ACC is untouchable.

      I hate them, but that’s at least in part due to growing up in Louisville and living there. I have to deal with their jerk fans all the time.

      ditto jdub. the hate was intensified lately bc their loudest argument has always been uk is the biggest cheating program throughout history and louisville wins the right way, without scandal. and then the last two half decade happened (especially the last year) and all the same people have just found something else to hate uk about instead of hating their own program. morons

      Probably goes without saying, but I also hate them.

      My hate has definitely intensified in the last few years. When I was younger I was indifferent because we were a lot better and their fans were less obnoxious. The new breed of line-bearded, crown royal drinking delusional fools are just awful.

      Being around them might be stressful; my end of the state you never see UL hats or t-shirts. It’s 100% UK.
      Just that hate is a strong word; of course, Matt hates Tom Brady…sshhh, don’t tell Tom.

    An NBA “minor league” would really hurt college ball. And, who would watch? I don’t watch D League games. I think recruits would benefit by two years in college.

    • I agree. I don’t know where the money would come from for the NBA to pay those guys “real” salaries, however much that would be, if no one watches/attends, as is apparently the case with the D-league now. How much can they really pay guys to play for the Ft. Wayne Mad Ants?

      Like I have said before, the common sense solution would be at least two years, and get some uniform curriculum for them to take that teaches them practical money handling and investment skills.

      Isn’t the D-League the NBA’s minor league already? It’s not as prominent as minor league baseball, but it still structurally is the same thing.

    • Yes it is STE, but some folks think they should start paying these guys “real” money (again, whatever amount that is) to play minor league ball. Apparently some D-league guys only make about 40k a year. That’s not bad right out of high school or college, but it obvs is nowhere near NBA money, and I don’t know how long most guys will hang around for that amount.

      Guys can make a lot more money playing in Europe or Asia.

    The whole jewelry industry and their “3 month’s salary” suggestion for engagement rings is a huge steaming pile of bovine feces. There are very few things in the world that have a higher markup than diamonds and fine jewelry. The unrelenting radio commercials are proof positive that they are making more money than they can figure out what to do with. Fortunately for me, I married someone who is not caught up with all of this crap. I used to work with a girl who said any future suitor better produce at least a 1.5 carat ring for her to consider a proposal. Hopefully she is still waiting, for the sake of any potential future husbands.

      It’s funny that the average person lets the industry making the profit set the guidelines. I’m not a jewelry girl, so I’m weird, but I hate the concept of an engagement ring. Why should the female have to wear a sign to the rest of the world that she’s off the market, but not the guy.

      i hate all jewelry stores and what not. and every single one of them use the tagline “we’re better because we cut out the middle man” or we’re better because we’re not trying to lie to you about whatever”…. you’re all lying and unless you’re selling it to me straight from the mine, there’s a middle man

      Absolutely, a relationship based on money is doomed.

    • RCF, they should just say in their ads:

      “Who needs to eat? Who needs a roof over their heads? You can worry about that later, AFTER you’re married!”

      Also bizarre how much people spend on weddings. Put that on a house, it will last a lot longer.

      I didn’t care about size of diamond. Quality over quantity right? I do like having a nice engagement ring, but only because I’ll wear it literally every day for the rest of my life. Luckily, my husband has an uncle who owns a jewelry store and got my engagement ring at cost. I have a nice ring, he didn’t spend ridiculous money, win-win.

    The media, especially network and cable news, hopes for bad news…they don’t want to cover “good” news…somewhat depressing.

    • Sentient Third Eye

      The media is shameful. Reckless, yellow journalism trying to keep people angry and divided for the purpose of generating profit (look at MSNBC and CNN’s ratings before they turned “hard yellow” in their sensationalist coverage. They are literally getting people shot, first cops and now congressmen. When will it end? Civil war? How many profits would that be worth, CNN?

      hell with good or bad news. i just want real news. my news feed the other day was mostly fluff stories. i don’t want fluff crap. i want to hear sports news or real important stuff. (and not the real important stuff that is biased to one political side and also not mudslinging “did you see what trump did today omg like for reals he should be impeached” – fml)

      I was hoping the news would become watchable again after the election, but not so much. They used to at least pretend to be neutral. Now it’s all about undermining the other party.

    I can only think of one player who went to the NBA straight out of high school and was ready to play immediately – Lebron. Even Kobe needed a couple of years to adjust.

      HS to the NBA is just a bad idea; they are just not physically and mentally prepared.
