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.

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.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

The fact that this thread is now apparently over 1000 posts (even though this is shown as Post 988 in the thread, banned members posts still count) and you can't just click on the last post to get to the end.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

Gas station, at the pump. The pump is not working, out of gas, broke or something. Get in car move it up a spot and get gas. Go inside and grab a drink and tell the cashier "Hey bud, just wanna let you know pump # whatever is not working." Cashier response, "Oh yeah been broke since yesterday"

Just shake my head and walk away. How about you give your paying customers a f*cking clue?

Apparently putting up a sign is too much to expect.

Gas station related gripe for me, I hate pulling up to a busy gas station where all the pumps are taken, yet nobody is at their car. Do that many people still pay in cash? Or are they just using the pump as a parking spot while they can go inside and shop? I'm betting more on the latter. F'ing lazy people.
