RetireChrebet Icon : (22 March 2015 - 01:28 PM) Haha I'm jk man, but my point was if you've never seen virginia play you would know they weren't going anywhere. Their offense is just painful to watch.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:46 PM) Lol....point taken. But a couple of things. 1 you do realize Nova and Va are in the same bracket right? 2 at least Va lost to a top 25 ranked opponent. Nova lost to an unranked.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:49 PM) Also VA beat some good teams. Lost to Duke,beat Maryland and split games with NC and Louisville. Their wins against quality and ranked opponents was higher and better than Nova.
ROBJETS Icon : (22 March 2015 - 03:55 PM) NC State didn't even get one vote to be in the top 25

ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 05:56 AM) Az bitches!!!
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:01 AM) I dont know about all that. As bad as we get over sports the Brits get far worse. You might suffer a huge beat down if you say the wrong thing there. Well maybe not being its televised to the U.S.. Security probably be pretty tight.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 06:03 AM) Well...... the good thing is I know who to mooch off of now if I go to London.
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 06:47 AM) hahahaha, it isnt European Football!
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:04 AM) Ive seen a lot of videos. Most countries go psycho over their soccer teams. Ive seen some serious very bloody beat downs. Fans stabbing the players and refs,etc. And they say we are bad in the U.S. not even close to that.
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:06 AM) I think one was in Africa....a fan stormed the field and was knifing everyone in sight after his team lost
ROBJETS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:08 AM) Hell even in mma when the Brits come over they are all cocky as hell. Big time cocky like they are going to easily destroy everyone they face cocky.
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 07:36 AM) hahahaha
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 07:36 AM) damn Europeans!
JSOTF Icon : (Yesterday, 07:37 AM) They havent fucked with a disgruntled, lifelong Jets fan!!!
Smedsthejet Icon : (Yesterday, 02:49 PM) Got my tickets from Ticketmaster the day they went on general sale
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 02:33 AM) You guys get Bellator in London? http://www.bellator.com/schedule its on Spike tv free regular cable channel. in the U.S. and the prelims are free on http://www.spike.com/
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 02:37 AM) London is 4 hours ahead of east coast U.S. Bellator prelims are 7pm Friday night U.S. East Coast time and the main card is 9pm So just add 4 hours to that if you can catch either. Im sure you can catch a stream or use a U.S. VPN if you dont have access to Spike.com. You guys might get Bellator on another channel their just like with the UFC.
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 02:47 AM) Anyway only reason I mentioned it was because of your sense of humor. The last Bellator 134 was called the British Invasion. If you watch mma Might want to add this site to your favorites http://www.mmauk.net...y/bellatornews/
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 02:55 AM) There was one of those hour long shows about the upcoming event featuring the fighters the prior week to Bellator 134 and all 4 of the Brits were cocky as hell. Yelling "The British are coming!!!!"
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 02:57 AM) By the way 135 is tonight if you are interested. I used to watch pretty much all the televised mma now I stick with Bellator and UFC only
ROBJETS Icon : (Today, 03:07 AM) that last link is a UK mma site. Only reason i added it. http://www.sherdog.com/ is pretty much the best mma site on the net for everything mma
JSOTF Icon : (Today, 07:08 AM) I actually live in Germany
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 09:08 PM) Just got done sitting in traffic for 3 hours in Louisville KY.
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 09:09 PM) Unbelievably poor planning by the DOT.

Soulja Boy Apologizes To U.s. Military For Offensive Rap Lyrics

From the New York Daily News

Quote

Soulja Boy is waving a white flag.

The rap artist is apologizing to the entire U.S. military after drawing ire for condemning troops in a recent online video.

In the clip, Soulja Boy raps lyrics to a new song, in which he says, "F--k the FBI and the army troops ... fighting for what? Be your own man."

But in a blog posting on GlobalGrind.com, he's changing his tune.

"As an artist, I let my words get the best of me," wrote Soulja Boy. "Sometimes there are things that we feel, things that we want to express, and when we put them on paper and speak them out loud, they can come out wrong.

"When I expressed my frustration with the US Army, not only did my words come out wrong, I was wrong to even speak them," he added. "So, I write this to give my sincerest apology to all members of the United States military services, as well as their families that were offended by my most recent lyrics.

"I have seen thousands and thousands of our brave men and women get killed in battle and often times, I think for what? A lot of people in this country are struggling to make ends meet and I think a lot about what if we had never gone to war."

After Soulja Boy's insenstive rap, real soldiers blasted the artist, who was also recently caught lying about purchasing a $55 million private jet.

"It's a very offensive statement ... especially with the tenth anniversary of 9/11 coming up," Fred A. Flores, a retired Marine, told TMZ. "[The rap] is very irresponsible."

Me thinks it was the P.R. department at his record label that really wrote that apology. Just another reason for me not to like him.

There are a few things I have realized about Mr. Jet over a few topics.

1) He is a racist. By constantly using race as a battling tool.
2) He is an extreme Liberal. If you are on either extreme you are probabaly more wrong than right.
3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.
4)His life sucks and he takes it out on people who don't share in his views.

What a tool. Yeah f*** the Army. They only give their lives so you can continue your shitty rapping career.
Sal Paolantonio commenting on the difference in the Ryan and Mangini atmospheres in the building:
"It's like going from Alcatraz to Dorney Park."

It is better to destroy than create what is meaningless, so the picture will not be finished.

This is surprising because I didn't think anyone actually listened to him to even get offended in the first place.

Fuckin kid is just so used to living in the free-world. It's free for reason dumbass. Men and women have died so he can sit on his ass, make horrible music and drink sizzurp.

Honestly this really bothers me deeply. He should be shot.

Diss the people that defend your way of life? Diss the people that put their lives on the line everyday? Diss the people that leave their family so you can make your millions?

Classy.

I really don't know. It's not like he's a bad-ass going around toting guns getting into brawls, stabbing and shooting incidents and all that. He's a country-ass kid that made a lot of money by himself really, using youtube as his media outlet. So I personally respect that aspect. However, I find it offensive when artists don't know when to shut up and can't rationalize what they should or shouldn't say. It really bothers me deeply when artists like him think they have power, when they think there word means something. He's lot a political style rapper like Pac was, or other singer/songwriters that like to write about the world, real life matters, politics and history.

Some artists just need to stick to what they do. Rap about totally irrelevant sh*t and get money, rap about "Soljah got da juice" and "Zan wit dat lean". It's worked so far for him and he's stupid rich. He needs to stay in bounds with his lyrics. No one cares what he says half the time because people look at him like a dummy, but when you start talking about real things KEEP YOUR IGNANT MOUTH SHUT!
