It's real easy to criticize from the sideline, but if you've ever been in that spot before where another man tries to start shit you'd know restraining yourself is easier said than done.

And just to be clear, I'm not sure if Montae was the aggressor or if the other guy tried to start shit. But yes, I qualify getting into a fight as a poor choice. I also qualify trying to rip off the NFL's healthcare reimbursement program as another poor choice. You act like I'm trying to make excuses for their actions. I'm not. Convict Portis, and punish him. He broke the law. But your double standard is appalling when you are more than willing to give Trump a pass for any action he does just because of the office he holds.

Then I got in a lot of fights defending people that were bullied as I once was. I am guessing I have probably logged more fighting minutes than everyone in here combined.

Anyway in my youth I would rather scare someone into backing down than fight. I have actually been punched by people that lost their cool and hit me, people that I could have destroyed easily and I just turned and walked away.
If I got in a fight and the other person wanted no more, I was done.

My claim to fame was having a strong chin and had good power, Tex Cobb was my hero. Usually if you just look at someone after you took their best shot the fight is over, no reason to go beat them half to death.
Larry Holmes beat the living shit out of that dude. I'll never forgot Cobb's face after that fight.

True, but I bet Holmes's fists hurt just as bad as Cobb's face after that fight. Holmes definitely doesn't get the credit he deserves.

I apologize for bringing politics into this thread, normally I try to keep the two separate. I do think it's ridiculous how quick to judge people are from the sidelines though. Portis/others fucked up, they're obviously gonna pay the price. DOJ doesn't fuck around with charges, they probably have all the evidence they need and we'll be hearing about everyone involved cutting a plea deal in the next year or so. Why overreact?

Re: Breaking: Clinton Portis, Carlos Rogers among 9 players charged with scheme to defraud NFL Healthcare program

From an ESPN article a dozen years ago:


"I don't know if he was fighting dogs or not, but it's his property, it's his dog," Washington Redskins running back Clinton Portis told WAVY-TV in Virginia. "If that's what he wants to do, do it. I think people should mind their business."

When told that dog fighting is a felony, Portis replied, "It can't be too bad of a crime."


That is enough for me to judge Portis, dude is gutter trash.

And what would your politics be? Please explain. I have run across a few extreme lefties that hold any minority of any race, creed & color totally blameless for any act of injustice they commit, is that you? My white girlfriend of over a dozen years is constantly bad mouthing white people, it boggles the mind. Self hating liberals, what a joke.

Jesus fucking christ. I apologized, out of decency, for bringing politics into a place I normally prefer to keep politics out of, simply because we don't come to a fucking football forum to discuss politics.

You need a fucking reference? 15000 fucking posts, at least 1000 of those mother fuckers have to be politics related. I don't need to explain shit. You know my position.

You can fuck right off with your fucking high horse. You wanna know my life motto? It's called don't be a fucking asshole. You are an asshole, and so is Trump, and so is any other diehard bootlicker that prefers to live with their head in the sand. Go fucking hang out in the Fox News comment section if you're tired of libs invading your safe space.

I did not vote for Trump, I voted for Will Seemore, which I have constantly stated. I am sick of everyone making everything about race. I am sick of lefties constantly playing the race card. For some strange reason everyone in my small world gets along just fine, we are all humans here in Caroline County Virginia.

What I find as comedy is the left saying the right is the party that spews hate. The left seems to hate anyone who does not think like them. Look above to see the proof. They are the party of hate and intolerance.

Who here has lost their mind and is cussing up a storm? I am an asshole for speaking the truth about the losers among us? Please quote a post where I am an over the top A-hole as you claim, I will wait,.................

I study politics a lot, and consider myself to be more informed on political stuff than the average guy who just watches TV, and I've felt for a while now, that the whole mantra / identity of the left is just "Agree with us or we will hate you / impeach you / try and ruin you professionally". This divide between left and right existed far before Donald Trump, and unfortunately it seems that it will continue well after his presidency. Personally, i was a Democrat in high school and college, but left the party in the late 2000's as i consider myself to be politically neutral.
