FORUM POSTING RULES - Read before posting

Forum Rules.

(1) The guiding principle for posting in this forum is moderate yourselves.

(2) Don't write a post that attacks, impugns or denigrates another poster's character. There's an obvious difference between the language of humor and hateful, debased language. Know the difference and post accordingly.

(3) This is a Michigan sports forum. The forum welcomes posts from M's sports rivals. Talking smack, posting sass is what college sports rivalries are all about. Rules (1) and (2) above apply. If you don't want to view the posts of a rival talking smack or sassing, use the ignore feature in User Controls.

(4) This forum is about sharing thoughts, ideas and viewpoints about all sports, any number of subjects and issues, learning stuff from other posters and having fun. There are threads by subject matter within the forum for doing this. Keep the threads on point.

NB: The rules above are not intended to build a case to ban a poster. There are consequences for rule breaking as specified below. That's as far as it should go. Only the most egregious and persistent rule breaking would cause the moderators to consider a ban.

Due Process.

(1) The forum has 6 moderators. Jeff Buchanan, Jon, JD, Hannibal, Oracle, Entropy. None of them want to moderate adult posters who should know better. There may be posts that break the rules.

(2) Posters who, at the sole discretion of a moderator, break a rule will be given a warning post that will site one of the rules listed above as the reason for the deletion.

(3) If the rule breaking behavior continues, a moderator can remove an offending post and any ensuing post that whines about that action. If a moderator removes a post(s) the reason for the removal(s) will be posted with the removal notice that appears in the thread. This should be the end of it. Man up, take responsibility for breaking the rules. The forum moves on. If not, see below.

(4) A poster who has had a warning or a post(s) removed can certify a question by PM to any moderator about that action. Do not complain about the action or attempt to make your case in the forum/threads. Moderators shall do their best to address the question within 72h. At the end of 72h the majority opinion of the moderators responding will be the answer.

(5) Banning a poster for egregious and repeated rule breaking requires a unanimous vote to ban from all 6 moderators. We don't anticipate this will ever happen.

  • Sotomayor was right to bring it up
    At least you're no longer erroneously asserting that Roberts brought it up. Unfortunately, you seem to skip over the "why" the decision was wrong. He only spends two paragraphs on it -- I'm not sure how you missed it.

        Trump brought it up. Sotomayor was right to bring it up, if Roberts is going to argue that Korematsu was wrong he should state why it is wrong. Otherwise he should have just ignored iher and said Trump has the power and that's the bottom line. He doesn't say why the decision was wrong, it is socially thought to be wrong 70 years later but the government back then was arguing that FDR had the power to keep us safe. Hugo Black agreed with them in his opinion.


        Of the top 10 countries with the highest Muslim population on the planet, only ONE of them are included in this Muslim ban. Muslim Ban excludes 89% of the world's Muslims. The word Muslim or Islam never appear in the text of the Muslim Ban





        WORST MUSLIM BAN EVER!!!!

        • Heh. Yeah, I mean even Breyer and Kagan acknowledge the Order is facially neutral.

                  • Yes re Mexico. My hate was going to be sated somehow today. Because, also, fuck those fucking nordic pussies, too.

                    • I'll definitely root for Mexico over Germany, but not many other countries. Germany looked like shit in all three games. After they lost to Mexico, the people on Fox Soccer were saying the first game doesn't matter. What in blue hell were they talking about? Every game matters especially if it is 3 games and you take the L.

                      I hope Sweden's coach will rub it in.

                      • Yeah, they were trash. They didn't have any answers in the final third. They deservedly finished bottom of their group.

                        Now, if Serbia wins today and the Swiss get anything -- woo-boy -- that's really good for England and Belgium. I really like this English side even if it's the least talented I can remember. They play with coherency. Can't wait to see which side tragically knocks them out on PKs.

                        • I think it's the best English side in a long time. I like a lot of their players, they are fairly young. The key is how they deal with tabloids when they falter. That older generation had a lot of baggage.

                          • I will say this, the best thing to happen to England was the undercover sting that caught Big Sam. Big Sam is a great escape artist, but that's not what you want to compete for a world cup.

                            • Heh. Yes. I really like Southgate. He's my favorite by far and that goes back at least to SGE, who managed to squander the "golden" generation.

                              • And with Germany, it is always best to keep a coach for one cycle, not any longer. Low overstayed his welcome.
