Has anyone seen anything yet?   :popcorn:

Be patient. Give them time. They're at the prop shop working as hard as they can. They had to figure out just what their own drone looks like. :snicker

Politics / Re: Donald Trump Resurrects Lie That China Is Paying His Tariffs

All trump does is talk s**t - they when has to face the big boys he acts like a little punk- remember rocket man and " fire and fury"- s**t rocket man is still testing missiles-- remember mauduro in Venezuela - well he is still in office.  Remember China?? they are still kicking a** - remember Iran - they are about to make nukes again.

All in good time my friend. I will be back to address the BS you posted. Meanwhile.....back to China.

Probably not, but it could suffer serious economic dislocations and social unrest. The Trump “trade war” (and it now officially is one) is based on the fact that China exports about US $500 billion to the US and imports only about $150 billion. In theory that puts the US in a better position to exert leverage. If Trump levels unaffordable tariffs on all $500 billion of Chinese exports, which he has threatened to do, that could create very serious problems for the Chinese economy and social stability. While China could get along (at some expense) without most imported US products it cannot afford to lose its by far largest market.
OS, here is the primary issue with your theory which could cause this blow up in Trump's face.  The major issue is China is seeking to develop its own software and hardware insteading of depending on the US to supply these good and services.  In the long run, China may be in a better position to dominate the technology markets than the USA.  They are already ahead of us in developing 5G, and they are looking to out do us in other Markets.

The other issue is China is still having growth rates above 6%, and they are looking for ways to increase growth by expanding into tainted and untapped markets. They can form a stronger trade relation with other Asian market, such as India,  that was disrespected by Trump.  They can expand and develop markets in Africa and South America.  Most of these markets hold great potential for China. Also, they can work to form stronger relationships with Europe and Russia. In other words, they will try to replace the USA as the world leader.

OS, you have to understand that Trump's unpresidential behavior is turning other against us, and they are looking to replace the dollar on the world market.  The way he is running up debt that may soon happen and it will put us in a bad position because no one will have mercy on us. Trump is like a bully and we know what happen to bullies when others get the advantage over the bully.

I'm not sure Idris and Taylor Swift can command big paydays.  For all the hoopla Idris gets he's not getting Denzel money. Swift what has she acted in music videos aside?

The better team would have had sense enough not to take Clemson lightly.  They had already torn your heart out in a championship game before, you should have been mindful of that, but you weren’t because you were cocky and can’t keep coaches in your factory long enough to remember.   That cockiness caused you to get your @zz TORE UP this past January.


And I loved every minute of it!  :clap:

Great.  Way to encourage more frivolous lawsuits.  Hope this guy gets hit with sanctions and ends up having to foot the bill for the NFL's legal defense.

He used his ESPN platform for a purely political point, having absolutely no relation to sports in any way.  Totally against the rules established by the privately owned business and grounds for discipline up to and including termination based upon precedent. 

The irony is, if he isn't disciplined and/or terminated, it's not because the company is going back to being "woke".  It's because he's a white male with good ratings.  Well... good ratings for now.  If he gets away with it, what will it really say about ESPN?

They need to suspend him.  At the very least.
