    Gun Control Poll

    I don't think banning ARs will solve the issue at all, it will just push those people to other alternative guns that actually serve a purpose in certain areas like hunting, home defense, etc. It is important to also note that a large amount of states already have regulations on the capability of ARs and high capacity magazines (for all guns). I support a ban on high cap mags, can't really think of a functional reason for them other than you are up to no good or are just trying to make your dick look bigger amongst your buddies. I have seen experts on the subject of mass shootings say multiple times that it is basically the media's fault and I agree. It's being carried out by people in isolation, seeking infamy/attention and the media enable them by giving them their time in the sun. It has become a mainstream thing now and we have had access to guns forever. Can someone explain why this wasn't a thing up until the past 20 years? We have always had access to highly lethal guns. We can't really regulate what the media does because then 1st amendment comes into play but we the people control what they push (clicks). One other thing that bothers me, the statistics reported on this often lump in incidents that aren't mass shooting events so it makes it look way worse than it is. That's not to say hey, only .000001% get killed or whatever, it just frustrates me seeing misleading numbers pushed for a certain agenda. Lastly, Maryland already has made it a hoop jumping procedure to just get a gun and it has pissed off many gun owners I know since it is so difficult...I know you get/need a background check and it requires some form of training. So you know what they do? Go to PA or VA ...

    The 18-Game Schedule

    I mean, you don't see playoff teams dying with injuries when they play 2 to 3 more games. The first and last preseason games are pretty much meaningless, so I can see the argument for trading them for 2 regular season games. The only downside I see is that it starts a new era of statistics which is just annoying for nerds like myself. Also, the players get more money with extra games.

    Womens Sports and Pay Equality in Sports.

    I don't think it makes sense for equal pay in national soccer: The time frame where the women out-earned the men was during the first WC we missed since 1986. I am not sure that will happen very often in the future given how much the sport is booming in our country now. Just wait till the casuals see Pulisic play, the dude is going to be our first LEGIT world wide star. All you have to look at is the revenues earned by each respective sport... ~5 BILLION to ~$130 million.... Men face a MUCH larger level of competition, the women's game has been mostly irrelevant on the national stage in Europe and South America apart from a few countries where they have had good teams i/e the Scandinavians and Brazil. The women are no where near as good as the men, it just doesn't show because they face 2 or 3 good teams throughout the entire tourney whereas we would be lucky to make it out the group stage. Anyone with an eye for soccer can see the discrepancy in skill between the two games. Ngata, the UFC has its own pay problems but the last two bullets apply to Women's UFC. The level of competition has been poor and we are just now seeing it improve with a lot of the up and coming girls. Look at Ronda and Cyborg as examples of that. People who coasted off of their advantages and beat up on low levels of competition. I also don't think Cyborg has earned anything in the UFC or is even that big of a draw. She has fought two names, one was a severe physical over-match and the other she got her ass beat. It isn't the best reference but any MMA forum I go to, half the people moan about WMMA being shoved down our throats....its just not nearly as big of a draw.

    Who trades for Antonio Brown?

    Some people can't handle fame.. NFL isn't losing anything if AB walks...plenty of great WRs to take the spotlight.

    Trump Regime thread.

    Nothing substantive comes up on google for the threats. I know that is your point. I was just adding, that it isn't much of conspiracy why Bernie is not favored by the party compared to others.

    Trump Regime thread.

    They definitely are not throwing their weight behind Bernie because they believe he would lose the pres election and he probably would. I don't even think it is a conspiracy at this point, it is the strategy they are choosing. Not sure I fault them, I'd be hesitant to vote Bernie as I think a lot of the stuff he is proposing is pie in the sky or bullshit but I wouldn't consider myself a 'democrat.'

    2020 Democratic Primary Race

    Primaries are ridiculous. Pushes parties to the extremes because candidates want to stand out and get the hardcore votes needed to win the primary. Ends up being all pie in the sky bullshit, race baiting/pandering, and fear mongering. They (dems) literally just have to put out someone that'll draw moderates and they win, easily.

    PG and parts of Montgomery County are feeling it now though.

    Historical QB Rankings

    I had no idea Peyton ever missed the playoffs. And yeah, his winning percentage with good defense is nutty.

    Historical QB Rankings

    I could see an era based, Razor QB rankings-esque weighted metric as being a good idea for accounting for individual stats. Adds more work though, to already a big undertaking.

    Many corps already do this, it is great incentive for performance. I think the board-room thing is pointless in today's business climate.

    Aw yiss more replay.

    I still think if it is really that big of a problem, go to college rules.

    Trump Regime thread.

    I think we easily have the capability of coming up with solutions and there probably already are some, I just have a hard time seeing where you can make money doing it though. I kind of like the idea of a carbon tax, which is paid in credits to people who engineer ways to manage the chemistry of the atmosphere. I feel like NATO/EU countries could hopefully concoct an agreement to pool funds as well.

    '18-'19 NBA Season Thread

    I realize you are probably just saying that to slight Curry but I hate how people are actually saying this...Like no duh, KD literally broke the league going to GS and without his presence we actually got good, competitive basketball. The series was really competitive with Klay, so its hard to even say that was the absolute difference, more so just the nail in the coffin. I thought the Raps looked to be the better team for the majority of the series.
