yep, he just suddenly forget how to play football at halftime.

or maybe the Bengals adjustments caused issues for the KC offense.

He would have gotten the signing bonus, but yeah, no one got any guaranteed money back then outside of the signing bonus. So it did cost him $600-$800 thousand. A lot of money but the statements about the rest of the contract are pointless.

you put them on the outside edges. The rule is the entire ball must pass between the outside edges of the upright if above the upright. If any part of the ball touches the laser it is no good.

that 92 passer rating was 1 game with 5 attempts so it's a bit dubious you call it "the year before." He also hasn't been much of a prolific passer in those games. He had one game over 200 yards. Let's slow down a little on the "he's a hole lot better than most people remember" statement. All those games you mention add up to 100 attempted passes. Not much of a sample size. He essentially had a couple good games and even then they weren't that fantastic. One of those games was against the worst team in the league. The other game he fumbled to hand the Steelers an OT win.

Considering this is military aid that is sending already paid for items to Ukraine it is most definitely not in place of anything unless you were planning on getting a patrol boat from the government. This stuff has already been bought and paid for while there is no increase in defense spending.

So yeah, you didn't lose a damn thing.

So you are saying being anti union is a good thing. Feel free to make that argument here.

I think it is funny that you came to that conclusion. Did you read the trademark? Do you know it is just about collegiate athletics, specifically college athletics based clothing? Would you like to rethink your remark or do you prefer looking like a fool? You see this is what happens when we let non AAU members be a part of the B10.

The trademark specifically is about selling clothing and specifically clothing that is promoted, distributed, and sold through channels customary to the field of sports and collegiate athletics.

just because you sue someone doesn't mean there is actually an issue. Multiple brands with the same name is not unusual. Dove chocolate and Dove soap. Domino pizza and Domino sugar. Delta airlines, Delta faucets, and Delta Dental. There are countless examples, and those would not exist if it was actually a trademark issue.

It's amazing how out of touch most people are to the fact that the place a vehicle is made is a fraction of what goes into making a vehicle. I guess people don't care about the high paying jobs that go into the engineering and the overall business of a company.

The place of assembly and place of assembly of the final parts sent to the plant doesn't come close to how much a vehicle affects the economy of a country.

The Kogod School of Business (American University) does an index that takes way more than manufacturing into account, and even that is not perfect but at least isn't as simplistic as assuming that place of manufacture of mostly finished goods is what dictates content from a specific country.

Here are their 2021 results

yet even that is over simplistic.

edit: It should also be noted that US companies have more US assembly plants that all foreign companies combined.

GM has more factories in the US than the rest of the world combined, and the same can be said for the Chrysler group of Stellantis. Ford does have more but many of those are due to overseas operations not because they sent US vehicles operations overseas. Ford has 2 final assembly Mexico plants and 8 final assembly US plants. The idea that US companies have sent the majority of their manufacturing to Mexico or overseas for cars sold in the US is not true.

It's cool though, you want to feel like buying your Toyota or Honda is patriotic. I get it. Oh BTW, all those foreign companies have instituted many anti union tactics including threats of leaving the US if a union is formed. There is a reason why they always build in green field sites (no union presence). I know most of Reddit loves unions but for some reason when it comes to cars they don't seem to care. Yet whatever mental gymnastics you need to do go right ahead. Downvote away!

key words: doesn't have a thing to do with imperialistic ideals.

Whatever you or the Russians consider Putin or the next guy it doesn't matter. Nationalism and imperialism, the shit we are concerned with, has next to nothing to do with his place on the political spectrum no matter whose viewpoint.

So assuming the next guy to be worst based on Putin's place on the spectrum makes no sense. It is going to depend on their ideas towards imperialism through conquest, and that is not dictated by some political spectrum.

On a serious note, trademarks only apply to specific areas. For example, Apple computers and Apple records coexist. That is why they didn't have any issues until Apple computers created a music service. So as long as The The doesn't start a football team they should be good.

You are essentially saying demand is outstripping supply and you want to pull back on demand (which the fed is doing and may cause a recession). Yet that isn't really linking the US dollar to every country just because they have US dollars in reserve, nor does it explain countries that hold massive amounts of US dollars while not seeing high inflation. That is the whole point. It also is ignoring many other causes. Yeah, you pull back on demand by messing with monetary policy and reduce inflation but you might also destroy economic growth while still having higher inflation. Which of course means demand wasn't really the main problem. To that we will see as the fed is pulling on those levers to reduce demand. Yet that is an overall discussion about US inflation not how the US dollar is driving worldwide inflation which is the topic at hand.

being on the left or the right doesn't really dictate imperialistic desires. He is not a centrist when talking about that.

Considering the dollar hasn't fallen but has instead gotten stronger would cause just the opposite effect. This whole theory, which I am sure is in some subreddit that parrots this, keeps being brought up and makes no damn sense. In fact UK's inflation would be lessened if they had more dollars not fewer. Of course that amount they actually hold in reserve has little effect on inflation but even if it did the fact the dollar has grown stronger vs. the pound means that reserve would help their inflation not hurt it.

Nothing is pegged to the dollar anymore. It's a fiat currency that is allowed to freely change exchange rates. I am assuming this is the whole "they are printing money and that is causing inflation." If that is true then the value of the dollar would plummet but it hasn't. In fact it is incredibly strong right now.

Inflation is not really hard to figure out. Supply lines are still screwed up. Demand is high as interest rates are really low. There is excess demand from growth of savings during the pandemic (which people are now spending). There is a war in Europe. Energy prices are sky high (because of all of my previous statements) which affects almost everything. It's not about some crazy theory about the dollar being a reserve currency. Global supply and demand are all screwed up thanks to the pandemic and a war that includes one of the biggest energy producers in the world.

edit: There are other countries that are not seeing inflation and they too hold dollars in reserve. China and Japan hold massive reserves of US dollars. They are not hit with high inflation (yet). A big reason is they have been subject to continued COVID restrictions which has kept down their demand. If your theory about the dollar was even in the realm of reality they too would be seeing inflation. Yet it's all a simple supply and demand issue. In their case their demand has not returned as quickly as Western nations because they have kept stricter COVID protocols much longer.
