Poor Reggie. He could have said: I have First Amendment rights and so do they. I do wish they would save the boos for when I concede a penalty.
Or: My family has a long history of being oppressed by our racist society. My grandfather was denied the Nobel Prize for Science. Oh, my bad, he was awarded the Nobel Prize! Or how my parents were denied admission to medical school because of their race. Oops, they both attended Ivy League medical schools and are physicians!

Anecdotal evidence doesn't accurately reflect, nor does negate it, systemic bias.


For example, you are an asshole; however, that doesn't accurately depict the majority of people on these boards, who are decent people.

#1347818 2019 Player Salaries

Posted by ssalgnogniwehc on 13 June 2019 - 10:04 AM

The rough part about this year is that our most expensive player has made zero impact.

You could flip that and say that's the exciting part of this season. Arguably all three of the team's most expensive players haven't had the impact that you might expect given both their salary and past performance, yet this team is only 7 points off first place in the east with a game in hand.

#1335924 Metro - Atlanta Playoff Thread

Posted by ssalgnogniwehc on 12 November 2018 - 04:06 AM

RBNY were missing Robles for their 3-1 win over Atlanta in May, and were without both Adams and BWP for the 2-0 win at the end of September so the dominance over Atlanta hasn't even come with full strength squads

Not sure I've ever enjoyed a game more in which this little was on the line

#1274449 Offseason Thread 2015-2016

Posted by ssalgnogniwehc on 25 January 2016 - 02:46 PM

Wondering if SWP re-upped and the club just hasn't announced yet.  His twitter page still has him kitted out in RBNY gear, he retweets stuff from the club and tweeted a photo of him digging out after the storm.  Doesn't sound like a guy who's going anywhere.

That was quick

How are the Ricketts and Rimando saves even in the final round?

#1223336 New MLS logo is club specific

Posted by ssalgnogniwehc on 18 September 2014 - 09:25 AM

Now we know why the cap is supposed to be 4 M - all the extra money went to the new sheild design.....


Have a cousin that works in branding that says MLS went cheap-o on the redesign

I don't want him fired but sometimes I worry the best coach on this team is an assistant

3 to tie, 4 to break.

Scratch what I said earlier about Alexander on corners...

Anyone else sick of Henry's corners that don't get past the first defender? Fuck -- let Alexander take them if Petke insists he plays.

#1199153 Positional Battles in Camp

Posted by ssalgnogniwehc on 16 February 2014 - 04:25 PM

I'm curious how people feel about the presumed position battle between Peguy and BWP. Personally, I was starting to get pretty excited with having Peguy as a midfielder. The game flows smoothly with him there, and although he proved not the most reliable defensively or for the full 90 minutes, a 60/70th minute sub could remedy a lot of that.


Additionally, the speed of BWP coming off the bench is a huge asset, whereas Peguy has never really seemed like a big off-the-bench contributor.

Metrofanatic is my homepage on iexplorer

You need to upgrade that browser.


Yeah, yeah, Dan and the site are great, my most visited site, blah blah blah... but only ONE inductee to the Hall of Fame this year?? El Tren deserved better.
