That's not usually the way you see Tannehill portrayed. If that's the way Tannehill is really thought of in league circles we might be in some trouble. I mean, it's not like ESPN takes to the airwaves to bash quarterbacks on a regular basis. There's no money in it. Even at Buttfumble's worst he was "struggling" and usually nothing harsher than that.

    I wonder if that was just a bad transition from Olbermann to the Josh McCown topic.

Similar things happened this past year with DLC content with some games, though for the life of me i cant remember which ones they were.

    On another subject, Assassin's Creed 4. I imagine this is a no brainer as the other games had this, but better safe than sorry: are you able to keep playing after beating the main story? Is any content locked if you finish the story first then back track? And did you get 100%? Ive finally got back into it and am sitting at memory sequence 10 and 80% overall completion. Trying to decide if i should take a few days to grind out the optional stuff or if i can finish it up and go back later.

    Watching Tannehill(and to a lesser extent Dion Jordan) take the next step forward is the only thing im holding out hope for this season. Watching us constantly make the wrong decision all offseason destroyed any hope i had for the regular season. Despite not playing a game yet im already looking towards the 2015 offseason.
    After the recent annoucement that Ryse and that zombie game will be released on PC, I'm hoping for the same thing as I certainly won't be buying an Xbone. As for AC4, I didn't really go back and 100% it, although I might do that now that I have a new laptop. I go in an screw around a little, but if I play Ass Creed, lately it's been AC3.

So basically by you not attending the funerals of someone who commits suicide is selfish on your part and therefore hypocritical. Those friends and relatives left behind would have appreciated your help in getting through a difficult situation of the having a funeral that day. You not going based on a principle is just you being a selfish asshole, which likely shocks no one.

Judging people in their time of grief is rather reprehensible, imo. Just because someone doesn't react how one thinks they should react or how they think they would act in their situation does not give them the right to assume they have any idea how that person is feeling. My heart goes out to you, my friend, you have lost a lot of people and that is rough to deal with.

    We don't think of mental illness that way because... well, first off we don't really understand it all that well. But there is also a social stigma around it. We think of it as wholly different from diseases of the body. But they're really not.

    If you can, screenshot ads that are up when that happens and post it in the Questions/Suggestions forum. The ads are a necessary evil, but they should not be intrusive. That doesn't push people to VIP, it pushes people to other sites.

    He didn't intend to die, not the same thing. I had a friend pass about a month ago when he flipped his Polaris Ranger. He was drinking and driving like an idiot but had no intentions of dying. Just like Carradine, his actions caused his death but he had no apparent intention to die. This is very, very different from suicide as the intent to die is the key ingredient of a suicide. Recklessness is not an intent to die.

    I'm optimistic about Tannehill this season for one reason only: Ol' Sherman is not his OC/coach any more. New OC comes in and fixes Tannehill's footwork. Imagine that.
    Insert pithy saying here.

    Rise of the Tomb Raider may see a release on other platforms after all, as the Xbox exclusivity agreement "has a duration," according to Microsoft executive Phil Spencer.

    Speaking with Eurogamer, Spencer confirmed that Rise of the Tomb Raider is a timed exclusive on Xbox One and Xbox 360. "Yes, the deal has a duration," the head of Xbox said. "I didn't buy it. I don't own the franchise."

    While Spencer said he couldn't comment on how long the exclusivity deal lasts — that's between Microsoft and Square Enix — he did compare the agreement to similar arrangements with Ryse and Dead Rising 3. Both of those games are Xbox console exclusives now headed to PC.

    That'll work.

    Oh I wasn't comparing it at all to suicide. I was just thinking about asphyxiating myself while jerking off!!!

    Sorry about your friend, I can't say I haven't done stupid **** that could have ended the same way. Lady I know had a yearly party, her neighbor was too drunk to drive home his UTV so his son drove it for him. They propped him up in the back seat and four of them took off, two in the front, two in the back with his dad passed out in the rear passenger side. Kid goes around a left hand turn and his dad who is passed out flies out of the UTV and hits head first in a drainage ditch on a metal sleuth pipe. Kid's father goes into a coma and dies two days later I think the kid was 16 or 17, something like that.

    In this case they did everything right and the poor kid killed his father anyway, it was one of the wrost things ever.
