Northwestern, Illinois To Only Use One End Zone In Wrigley Field

Northwestern, Illinois To Only Use One End Zone In Wrigley Field

Commented Nov 20, 2010 at 00:44:32 in Sports

“completely agree. I live in chicago and go to about 15 cubs games a year. I absolutely think that they need a new place. nothing lasts forever. players do not want to come to chicago to play because the facilities are crap. a new stadium will bring in fresh revenue and a new start. the yankees moved from yankee stadium and they at least can say that they have good memories from the old stadium. Why do cubs fans hold onto wrigley so tight? we have done nothing to speak of in that stadium.”

“the problem is that when they decided to design the football field at wrigley, they designed it to be close to the right field base line so people could see better. if you look at the configuration of the notre dame/army game at yankee stadium tomorrow, they put the field where the end zones were home plate and center field vs wrigley as they did the end zones at home plate and right field. As for the game, obviously I think if there is an interception or fumble, they will let them return it. They are trying to avoid a goal line situation where a team is lined up at the 1 yard line and the wall is 12 yards away. What I thought that they would do would give the team the option once they were down in the red zone if they wanted to switch to the other end. With the wall that tight, it prevents deep go routes or post routes in the back of the end zone.”

“completely her fault for doing it in your car. all she had to do was go in the bathroom of her hotel for a little privacy from her kids. heck, she could have even turned on the shower to have some noise to cover her from being loud or something.”

“I'm assuming you don't have kids?”

cybersense on Nov 17, 2010 at 16:55:53

“Why the bathroom? It may have been fine for you, but this women apprently did not think so. The kids would be knocking at the door I suppose. Hey, the woman apparently needed a little more privacy. The only thing that got her noticed was a flashlight into her van.”

“her parents are probably young as well and just as irresponsible as their daughter. this is a case were abortion should have been exercised. because this happened in spain and spain is predominately roman catholic, abortion was probably not even an option.”

Welttraveler on Nov 3, 2010 at 12:11:32

“Abortion has been legal in Spain for decades. Only about 10% of Spaniards attend mass regularly. Plus the girl is a gypsy from Romania. Inform yourself before you post nonsense.”

Val d e2 on Nov 2, 2010 at 16:54:07

“first, you seem to know nothing about spain. let me explain: abortion is common and legal there; the child and her family did not use social services of free-medical services because they are illegal romanian immigrants living in souther spain. they went to the hospital AFTER the child had been born”

sofiapwns on Nov 2, 2010 at 14:33:37

“Abortion is legal in Spain. It has been for a couple of years now. If she didn't have an abortion it's because her parents didn't want it, or the girl didn't want it.”

Juan Williams Is Right: Political Correctness About Terrorists Must End!

Commented Oct 23, 2010 at 17:28:51 in Politics

“first off, I do not understand why someone would be nervous if they saw a muslim wearing traditional muslim garb? In case Juan did not notice, but ALL of the hijackers from 9/11 were wearing western clothes. Jeans, button down shirts, loafers, etc. When you are going to commit a crime of that nature, blending in might make it a little easier. Someone who is wearing muslim garb that does not have sinister intentions is already going to be screened, hassled, and stared at throughout the whole process of flying on commercial airlines. So why would they want to draw attention to themselves?? They wouldnt. So you are probably safe if you see a muslim wearing their traditional clothes on an airplane. I would watch out for the ones that are blending in, have hate in their eyes, or continually saying "allah akbar."”

“It is bothering me how much people are ripping favre. yeah, he went back and forth one too many times about retirement and it became a circus. but playing football is something he loves dearly and is very good at. I am sure it is a hard decision for him to decide whether or not to retire if he feels like he has something left to give to the game. after last year when he played amazing and had one of his best years, he still has it. as for this fiasco, who really cares? everyone in this situation is adults and the women that he sent the texts and messages too are not talking about what happened. they obviously are not doing this for attention which makes me feel that this is legit. The way Favre answered the questions regarding the texts seemed like he was guilty as well. my point is, is he really such a terrible guy that people can completely rip this guy apart? this is between his wife and him and if she has a problem with it, I am sure she will let him know and the rest of us will find out if a divorce is coming or not. let the guy play football. this sucks that his swan song for his final year in the NFL is not marred with pictures of his dick.”

“they are obviously not technically married. I do dislike the mormon religion and what they stand for very much. I know that this is a different sect and are fundamentalists and the mainstream mormons do not agree with this. As much as I do not like the religion itself, if these people are happy then who cares? he is only married to one person and the other three women live a life where they act married but really are not. they are not hurting anyone. I am sure that if their kids were unhappy or abused in any way, they would speak up. once the kids are old enough anyway, they will make the decision themselves about whether or not they want to live their life similar to the one they grew up with.”

QueenOfViolets on Oct 9, 2010 at 12:53:14

“Actually, if you do the math, you'll discover that their kids will not be able to decide themselves whether or not they want to pursue this kind of life.

Men and women are produced by nature in roughly equal numbers. There are not lots of spare women running around. Any man who marries four women has deprived three other men of any chance to marry those women. That's just how the math of polygamy works.

So in a polygamy community, only a small fraction of the young men are going to end up getting married.

What do they do with the "extra" young men? They run them off, they make them leave the community, so that they don't compete for the women.

So they do end up hurting their kids. They hurt their male children who grow up thinking they might not ever have a chance to marry, because the older and richer men end up taking more than their fair share of the women.

If you have 12 men and 12 women, only 3 of those men are going to have four wives. And the remaining 9 men have to be run out of town and made to look for their wives elsewhere.

That is how they do it in the polygamist world.”

“she should not be charged with anything. obviously, the daughter and her lived a happy life in Nevada after fleeing an abusive relationship. It sounds like the daughter does not even want her mom to face charges and she was the one that was "technically" kidnapped. Where is the father in all of this?? Has he been notified that they were found? Is he the one that is pressing for criminal charges to be filed?”

olddognewtrick on Oct 9, 2010 at 12:48:28

“I think it should be described as an "alleged" abusive relationship...just to stay on the safe side of libel laws...”

frieda406 on Oct 9, 2010 at 12:39:11

“of course she's going to be charged. she kidnapped the child. nothing technical about it. she did not have legal custody of the child at the time and kidnapped her during the custody process. just because the kidnapping involves someone's child rather than a stranger doesn't mean there's no kidnapping. there's an outstanding warrant. of course the daughter doesn't want her mother charged. she knows no other parent. he's not pressing for charges, altho' one would assume he'd like to see his child. the state brings criminal charges. the father would simply be a witness.”

“I dont know about this list. No Detroit? No New York City? I live in Chicago and the number 1 that they have on this list, in my opinion, is dangerous but not as bad as the Austin neighborhood from Lake st on the north to Madison st on the south to Pulaski St on the east and Austin St. on the west is by far, extremely bad. I cant believe that Englewood on the South Side didnt get a nod. Chicago has more murders this year than actual deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan this year combined! That is not a joke. Obviously, the deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan have gone down because we are technically no longer engaged in "war," but still, it is crazy to think that Chicago has more murders than actual war zones. But, I love it here. There are plenty of great neighborhoods that are safe and well kept that balance it out here. When you live in Chicago, you just know that there are areas of the city that you just dont go. Even as a white guy driving in a car, you can get pulled over by police. They think that their is not a good reason for you to be there unless you are buying or selling drugs. I had bricks thrown at my car when I first moved here and made a wrong turn in Englewood. Nuts.”

“I am all for equal rights. Rights for woman, equal opportunity, etc. But I do not think that it is appropriate for women reporters to be allowed in locker rooms. Sorry. Either they wait outside and if they dont like that, well I guess they are not getting their story. The problem is, it is a locker room full of testosterone. It doesnt mean that these guys are undereducated and beasts like some of you are saying, but when you get a pack of animals together, they behave in ways that they normally wouldnt. they just played in a game. are all amped up. getting cleaned up and may be naked. it is not an appropriate environment for reporter to be in, even men. So I say that they should have a press room that each and every player be required to go to after getting cleaned up and is fully clothed.”
