    Multiple Victims in Charleston SC Church Shooting

    QUOTE (Balta1701 @ Jun 20, 2015 -> 01:08 PM) 1. I posted the link. You could choose not to follow it. I think it's sort of hilarious that you said this. They raised a flag. You could choose not to give it any weight. It's free speech, guys. Whether you agree with what it stands for or not, it's anyone's right to fly a Confederate or nazi flag. And Balta, you never really answered the question of what you would do to prevent a shooting like this. You just made a smarmy remark.

    Robin Ventura Named White Sox Manager

    QUOTE (KyYlE23 @ Jun 19, 2015 -> 11:43 AM) DA, you dont want to blame anyone except Soxtalk. Its never the players, managers, or coaches fault, just the people who are pissed off that this team looks and plays like s***

    Robin Ventura Named White Sox Manager

    QUOTE (Dick Allen @ Jun 19, 2015 -> 10:54 AM) So the White Sox struggles the past 3 seasons are all on Robin. If they would have hired Dave Martinez, there probably would have been playoff appearances and capacity crowds? Nope, but he's been a factor.

    Robin Ventura Named White Sox Manager

    QUOTE (chitownsportsfan @ Jun 19, 2015 -> 10:34 AM) Balta really nailed this one. So did 90% of the other posters but Balta's takes were spot on. Maybe KW and Rick should poll Soxtalk on the new manager. The majority of posters were right. Funny to look back on the last few pages, though. Lots of people mocking the outrage a little too early.

    Robin Ventura Named White Sox Manager

    QUOTE (KyYlE23 @ Jun 19, 2015 -> 07:58 AM) well, after reading the first 20 pages i saw that Marty34, SOXOBAMA, and WHITESOXRANDY loved the move, and SoxBadger was for it as well. And that's basically it. That's surprisingly one-sided for Soxtalk.

    Robin Ventura Named White Sox Manager

    Funny to see how much everyone agreed on this.
  7. Nobody thought the Ventura hiring would work out. It seems like the only thing Soxtalk has ever agreed on. And the thread proving that is actually hilarious in retrospect.

    It's time for a fire sale.

    QUOTE (ChiSox_Sonix @ Jun 19, 2015 -> 07:33 AM) I agree. Season's over. Try and get whatever you can for some of these guys. I can't believe it's mid-June and I have completely checked out of the season already. It's just been so hard for me to care about this currently constructed team. They have been incredibly frustrating to watch and follow this year. This post could've been from basically any year between 2007 and 2015.
  9. Feel like I've been watching the same thing for about ten years now. And I use the term "watching" very loosely.

    Yet another "racial" confrontation with police, this time in

    QUOTE (Balta1701 @ Jun 17, 2015 -> 12:55 PM) And I would counter that there's a solid chance that the additional stress of being a police officer offsets any skill or training they receive in such matters, and then submit a proposal to the national science foundation to study such things if I were a social scientist. I would then be told no, this research is unimportant because social science is not a "core science" according to the current Congress. Maybe just pick one social topic to harangue about at a time? You get hard to follow sometimes.

    Did any of you book readers notice the likely introduction of, or at least nod to, Strong Belwas?

    Perhaps Littlefinger expected Ramsay to basically rape or degrade Sansa, believing that it will push her in a direction he wants. I'm sure he's aware of Ramsay's actions in the past and the Bolton family's current state, and because of that, I'm sure he's aware that both Ramsay and Roose know full well that they can't flay the last remaining Stark.

    **SPOILER THREAD** GAME OF THRONES ** SPOILER THREAD **

    I know it was a rape and all, but what did they really show that has people so angry? Maybe I wasn't paying close attention, but all I remember was Ramsay making her turn around and bend over, tear some of her clothes, and then Theon's face as you hear Sansa crying.

    They specifically showed him ALMOST get his throat cut. That could mean he's still kicking. But then they also showed him looking like a corpse in the previews. So, I dunno.

    2015 Films thread

    QUOTE (Brian @ Apr 30, 2015 -> 05:56 AM) I would guess part 3 usually is. I loved Spiderman 2 lots more than the first. The Tobey ones. And we all know how 3 was. The Dark Knight was my favorite of the 3. Empire.

    QUOTE (KyYlE23 @ Apr 20, 2015 -> 02:36 PM) Rogue One is supposed to be a heist/war movie about the squad that stole the Death Star blueprints. It doesnt get cooler than that Will the characters be Bothans, then?

    2015 Films thread

    Everyone's always trying to bash these Marvel movies before they come out, probably so they can say they called it. Then the movie is great and everyone asks why they doubted it.

    Who Wins?

    Danny Trejo is around 70, so not him.

    Ferguson Riots

    QUOTE (Jenksismyb**** @ Mar 2, 2015 -> 10:54 AM) According to Gawker, there are reports that the homeless guy was going for the cops gun, hence the shots. And at least one of the cops was wearing a camera. So this will be sorted out pretty quickly. http://gawker.com/graphic-video-lapd-offic...n-br-1688818269 Without watching the video and going simply by your original description, that's exactly what I figured the case would be. And leave it to the buffoon above you to jump to the conclusion he did.

    Official Squared Circle Thread

    QUOTE (Soxfest @ Feb 9, 2015 -> 03:15 PM) Since when does Reigns winning Mania represent what everyone wants? It's cannon fodder and nothing more whoopee doo Bryan is in the match. Everyone wanted Bryan in the match, and now he's there. You're a crybaby.

    Official Squared Circle Thread

    QUOTE (Soxfest @ Feb 9, 2015 -> 11:03 AM) Reigns will still win Bryan just window dressing. Fans will not like Reigns winning regardless. VKM being VKM. Seriously, do you listen to yourself? In this situation, the guy's giving everyone what they want. And you still cry.

    American Sniper

    QUOTE (LDF @ Jan 21, 2015 -> 07:05 PM) at the Battle of the Bulge, WW2. the nazi killed american soldiers that were POW, it was at Malm├ędy. by your statement, it was ok b/c they were known enemies??? pls explain, and if i was wrong, then i am sorry for implying that. POW's are a different story, obviously. I'm talking specifically about a sniper shooting an enemy. A sniper looking through his scope at an enemy combatant who doesn't have a gun in his hand at that very moment can still shoot him.

    American Sniper

    QUOTE (caulfield12 @ Jan 21, 2015 -> 07:00 AM) I'd love to see how many of those kills were situations similar to the ones portrayed in the movie, "life and death" decisions involving women and children...the split second decision of are they civilian non-combatants or terrorists? Is all of that information still classified? Certainly it's not in the interest of the government for the public to find out, for example, how many of his kills were shot in the back or not holding weapons, etc. It's hard to imagine he didn't make a few mistakes when the kill record has somewhere between 160 and 270 insurgents listed, depending on the source. The movie makes a dramatic point about potentially shooting an unarmed woman and child (if he was wrong) and intimating he would have been court-martialed. As far as the all-time record, I think it's hard to compare World War II snipers with Gulf War I and II, or how many kills World War I flying aces had with WW II, for that matter. Context is always important to take into consideration. http://frontburner.dmagazine.com/2013/02/0...tation-in-2009/ Here's a story that supposedly confirms the gas station shootings. Not sure how believable the explanation of the cover up is...it doesn't say the two victims were Mexican/Latino, but it intimates he suspected they were going to try to sell the truck across the border. That doesn't sound like a typical gringo move IMO. http://frontburner.dmagazine.com/2013/03/2...-of-chris-kyle/ And the counterpoint, why that story, if true....is troubling for so many different reasons. What does that matter? And even with the stipulation that a person isn't holding a weapon, if it's a known enemy, it makes no difference if they're armed at the exact moment.

    American Sniper

    QUOTE (LDF @ Jan 20, 2015 -> 09:50 AM) my point is snipers are a necessary piece of equipment that is needed in war. whether most like to think it is cowardly or not, they saves life. my point is in WW2, a sniper / commando's saved life, in the long run. killing this mad man who is worst than hilter caused an additional 10,000 people and a complete town. but it still saved lives. no matter what anyone say, his kills are certified by the military, so there is no false numbers there. he saved or helped saved lives. If you're talking about the same town, it wasn't destroyed by him. It was destroyed in retaliation for his assassination.
