  • Re: DL Recruiting - Cautious Optimism Edition

    Why aren't we going after Tyler Manoa or Paul Maile ? Are they shit ?
    I hope we can get a good transfer... Why the fuck did we not go after Fehoko last year ?? Well we wouldn't have got him anyways...
    yeah

    once tremblay goes elsewhere do we have a shot at anyone besides cravens?
    We are trying to get in on this kid from Katy. A Nigerian kid and all respect to our Nigerian friends out there, but the fact that I grew up in Kent makes it hard for me to remember these names because I don't understand them phonetically or culturally.

    Anyway, we'll get shot down by him too, but we might offer.
    At least thats a real league.

    I don't trust the government. Never have, never will. Comcrap (hi FiremanBill) and the rest have to answer to my wallet

    There will always be oversight. If I'm wrong boobs can bump this post
    You say now that they have to answer to your wallet, but you'll soon find out that there is nowhere else to spend your money.
    Story time again

    In Seattle in the 90's the highly regulated cable industry that would eventually all become Comcast kept promising a digital upgrade to our neighborhood so we'd get the new deluxe cable stations. They lied about it for years which is why I was an early subscriber to DirecTV and was able to tell TCI to fuck off and die.

    The market reacts.
    The Cable industry is far less nuanced than the internet. You either get a channel or you don't. You know when you're getting fucked. Unfortunately, there are plenty of subtle ways to fuck internet consumers without them being the wiser.

    In this case, the FCC removed its ability to oversee the industry, but granted that now the FTC. The problem is, the FTC only regulates after people have already been fucked.
    Don't you think that there will be a lot more heat and light on this issue now whereas the FTC would step in sooner rather than later should these monopolies violate laws?
    Sure, it's definitely possible, still not ideal though. As OBK said (and yes I am agreeing with OBK there is a first time for everything), I believe ISPs should be viewed as utilities and not market participants. The internet is now as indispensable in our lives as electricity or heat. The majority of our citizens' communication and financial systems are entirely dependent on it, and if not, they soon will be. Our dependence on the internet will not plateau or shrink any time in the forseeable future. The internet isn't as simple as the ability to watch Netflix or post on Facebook like the majority of arguments oversimplify it as. The internet is, like it or not, quickly becoming a non-optional societal survival necessity.

    agree, really this is the crux of the argument and you're on one side or the other
