Something that died a slow death beginning in a faraway land called.....Manilla. Before cages were invented......I think.

When are they going to give up the idea it is the ice cream of the future? I have been seen it for like 30 years. At this point it is the ice cream of the past.

You're right. I've only been doing it for 20 years - I must be wrong.

I think it's just a tag-line. I hope. I'd hope people knew that dot ice cream wouldn't make it. I like the idea though because its clean, it doesn't drip everywhere and its kinda fun to eat. But nothing beats eating a drippy ice cream cone on a hot summer day.

On the bolded part - Really, faster than Tannehill, or Weeden who don't have the surrounding cast?

Media in general just annoys the *********************** outta me (you can fill in with as many expletives as possible)

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

When people generalize the media. Someone gives an opinion and suddenly it's representative of everyone else's opinion.

It's like me saying well I didn't agree with Dirtbag's opinion there, so I'm just going to say posts on NFL team fan sites are pretty much all crap

Any chance you're using bing or do you pull the site up directly?

I've only had that error when searching the site with bing at work.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

Pul it up directly, never use Bing.

Not really a gear-grinder, we've tried to resolve it in the thread the Playbook section.

I've accepted it and learned to live with it like the bump on my nose.

Yea I get that. Maybe I should have said -- When a member of the vaunted media uses blatant hyperbole and makes remarks in articles that border on idiocy. better?

I think mainstream media has to cater to the general public. Since most people are pretty freaking stupid the mainstream product we get tends to be subpar.
