  1. You're not wearing anyone out! This suit is pretty dang fascinating even if you don't have a vested interest . Thank you for your insight and all of the links, they are quite helpful (I was having a hard time locating the counts against the Rams/NFL)
  2. Regarding text messages, it is my understanding that you need the actual phone? Do you know if that is accurate?
  3. My guess is by digging through the phone records it may lead to more questions and other avenues to pursue that could potentially turn up damning evidence. Although I'm guessing you were looking for a specific answer to your question. It's a legitimate question: Can't a private enterprise do whatever they want? if they want to choose to follow their own rules they can. If they don't, so what?! I think what the plaintiffs are arguing is that by not following their own rules, it resulted in nefarious behavior. Then again, I don't really know what I'm talking about so who knows...
  4. Loved that part. Also a big fan of this part: The Rams' lawyer, Andrew Kassof, argued for the lawsuit to be sent to arbitration, corporate America's venue of choice. Kassof's argument hinged on what he saw as a clear and simple technicality: The NFL relocation policy was moot because the Rams had the right to relocate whenever they wanted, due to their year-to-year lease in St. Louis' then-Edward Jones Dome. The lease had expired in 2016, Kassof argued, so the Rams were free to leave. Judge Philip Hess sounded suspicious. "Do the Rams have the ability to move without the NFL's approval?" he said. "No," Kassof said. "They need the NFL's approval, and ..." Hess cut him off. "Isn't that what this is about? The relocation policy of the NFL?" It was a stunning moment in a nearly empty courtroom. Hess' question had forced Kassof to undermine his own case. Christopher Bauman, representing the plaintiffs, seized on it, winning the argument and keeping the case out of arbitration. Last month, the Rams petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to issue a stay, and the high court denied it. Teams have been forced to provide eight years of phone records and emails for discovery -- and had to hire legal teams and data experts to sift through them. Kroenke has had to foot all the legal bills for the teams and league, part of an indemnification agreement the league presented to the Rams, Chargers and Raiders on the morning of the L.A. vote. The legal bills have reached eight figures for some teams. Hell who am I kidding....I loved every part of the article referencing the lawsuit.
  5. FUGLY. Since we have 340 jerseys I don't understand why we can't have one that says "Billikens" in cursive.
  6. I know where you are going with this and it's genius. We need French shooting 3s. Draw a foul and hit 1 free throw.
  7. High Point currently 329 on Kenpom Seton Hall up to 16 Belmont moves up to 73 Saint Louis at 121
  8. I guess it could have been worst. We could have lost at home to Evansville. I loved going right after their big men down low however it seemed there were 7-10 drives to the basket that, at best, provided a very low percentage scoring chance. Free throws an issue as always and our defense left a lot to be desired. Three positives were Bell banging with the big boys, taking down rebounds and drawing fouls, Jimmerson shooting 50% from 3, Perkins attacking the glass and looking confident. They've got Wednesday to get back on track because Belmont is going to be a tough game.
  9. Sorry didn't see this posted anywhere. Wanted to make sure everyone was up to date on Stu's mentions before SUnday's game. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">My week on Twitter : 6 Mentions, 1.74K Mention Reach, 83 Likes, 9 Retweets, 15.5K Retweet Reach.

  10. Not sure where to put this one: <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">We’re hearing that the Billiken Ticket office has had a massive run on tickets in the last 48 hours for Sunday.

  11. What a game that was. The tall white dude with only consonants in his name was clearly fouled on the arm. Tough break for Seton Hall. A Seton Hall win last night would have amplified our victory on Sunday but I'll still take the win.
  12. I can't get over how deep this team is. Last night, Ford made a bunch of substitutions halfway through the first half and I thought to myself, "Holy cr#p! I completely forgot about Perkins and Weaver!" Even better, they aren't just warm bodies on the court to give our starters a breather. They were both stroking the ball. There is something special about this group. I can feel it. It may just be the disgusting breakfast taco I had this morning but I don't think so.
  13. Why did he only play 7 minutes? Is there something wrong? I really hope he doesn't transfer.
  14. Anyone else still rock hard from last night? If not, take one of these and wait 30 seconds: <blockquote class="instagram-media" data-instgrm-captioned data-instgrm-permalink="https://www.instagram.com/p/B41Xe0IFloL/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_campaign=loading" data-instgrm-version="12" style=" background:#FFF;
