overpriced gamefly bundle? members only $800


Not overpriced if you are planning to keep your subscription. After you apply the gift certificate to your subscription you are only paying $50 over retail; eBay the game to cover that and you end up with a free headset for your effort.

The soccer player you’re looking for is Michael Bradley although tbh Cheapy you look more like his Dad, Bob, who used to be coach of the US national team.

I think it was clear that Wombat doesn’t even know who owns the Braves (Liberty Media) let alone whether they have the political clout to change laws in Georgia. They are worth a small fraction of companies like Coca Cola and Delta. Also not sure what Robert Kraft has to do with anything; he owns a team and business in Mass. but got caught paying for sex in Florida. Since he’s a Democrat I doubt the locals were looking to do him any favors; in the current climate it was a miracle someone didn’t leak the tapes.

The discussion of paying NCAA players was oversimplified. The real issue is that most schools lose money on sports overall and the few that make a profit don’t make much. The big money comes from alumni donations but those aren’t considered income for sports even if that is what keeps the donors giving.

Ship thinks you can split apart the individual sports. But you have the issue of Title IX. Let’s say you're Alabama and you spend $70 million on your football program; win a National championship and you could generate $100 million in revenue. So you made $30 million in profit, right? But wait, under Title IX you’re required to spend an equal $70 million on women’s sports that generate almost no revenue. So you actually lost money. The most successful program in by far the biggest revenue sport and you still don’t make a profit. And if you start paying the men then that’s more expenses that will have to be matched by additional spending on women’s programs. I also can’t imagine any college wanting the bad press and law suits from trying to pay men differently from women (and no women’s program is making money, not even CT basketball).

As CAG’s resident annoying vegan I want to correct a myth believed by many, including some older doctors. Tofu and other soy products do not have estrogen. They have phytoestrogens, which block real estrogen. Bodybuilder Brian Turner even did a YouTube video where he ate a pound of tofu every day for a month. His testosterone levels went up.


Phytoestrogens ARE estrogen, it’s just the kind that plants use rather than humans. In humans it has a pretty weak effect but it doesn’t block anything; I think you just got information from someone that doesn’t understand a complex topic.
