    I think I know what happened I was going to quote something you said but decided to quote erode instead. I had both your quote and erodes quote in the reply field and when I deleted your quote I mistakenly left your username and entered erodes quote. :)

    BTW five pages of debate over Cuck Howley HOF? Come on man, and I am one of the least biased fans here.

    It very telling, yes. Being a lemming is safe, figuratively. Never half took much steadfastness or belief system to stand in a crowd, thowing stones.
    Half a nice lemming life.:p

    Currently, it's 32-1 in favor of Howley's induction into the Hall of Fame. Perhaps the 32 are not lemmings. Maybe the one is that rare bird who always go cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs. :p

    Our whole universe was in a hot dense state! Then nearly fourteen billion years ago expansion started Wait! The Earth began to cool! The autotrophs began to drool! Neanderthals developed tools! We built a wall! GIMMETHEPYRAMIDS! Math, science, history! Unraveling the mystery! That all started with a Big Bang! BANG! :)

    I bet it will be even more lopsided than that!
    Look at it dis guay: It would be so boring to have a 100 agreement on Howley to the HOF. I am sure that after today, the voters will see the light and induct this fine player.

    You won't get any argument from me. Some of the most common sense conclusions in humanity's history have not been universally accepted:
    • The earth is round
    • The moon revolves around the earth
    • Howley in the Hall of Fame
    Boooooring.
    I'm not so sure about that. I heard the Hall's Board of Selectors are vampires. And everyone knows what happens to vampires whenever they see the light...

    "It's so sunny! AGGGHHH! It burns! It burns!" *ash*

    You would think they would be the largest consumers of sunscreen lotion, but noooo...

    The earth is not completely round. Geologists remind me that oceans and them Himilayas and tall buildings in Houston make for a very uneven surface.
    Yeth the moon revolve around the earth but that was not always so. We had to wait for maybe, um, a thousand years for planet debris to get into our orbit of magnetism, from which i get mein magnetism.
    Howley in the Hall of Fame? Sure. But then the bar would be lowered and then even Sean Lee and Devonte Holloman would get in. See the mess? then jerra would half to market Howley jerseys and Romo would get all angry and stuff and . . . what a mess. I confress. I digress. but dankershane for the response.
    You are one of mein favorites when my real favorites are not around.

    Ever wonder why the architect designed the Effel Tower's steel structure the way it is? Answer: atmospheric drag. The architect was so concerned the tower would slow the rotation of earth that he made it wholly.

    That guy was a genius.

    Sean Lee and Devonte Holloman dream of one day reaching Chuck Howley's level. Lee daydreams while propped up on crutches and Holloman... well, there's not much else to do while standing on the sidelines.

    Here's a morbid joke: What's the difference between a living and a deceased Board of Selector voting a desiring Dallas Cowboy player or contributor into the Hall?

    Answer: Six feet.

    He be tall, huh?

    I did not know that about the Eiffel Tower. When Mr. Tower built it he probably wanted to make a statement about dada art but strangely the tower caught on and today, instead of being unsightly it is iconized. Leave it to the Belgiums to make a silk purse out of a pig's ear. The tower is really ugly but then, again, I never be in the mainstream.

    I think director Stephen Sommers felt the same way as you when he destroyed the Eiffel Tower in GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra. Funny. I don't remember feeling all that sad about it happening during the movie. Curious. Oh well. Vive la France!

    I say keep the tower but build a McDonald's on top of the tower. And for good measure and to rub it in, serve freedom fries as we call them in Farmers Branch and other fine communities.

    Actually, Schramm didn't induct Jordan due to a contract holdout that he had going into his last season (1976). Jordan wanted to be paid 100k for his final season, and held out to get it. Schramm held a grudge, as he was wont to do over money matters (see how he used player annuities to get Tony Dorsett, Randy White, Ed Jones and John Dutton to cross the picket line during the 1987 strike). Jones righted this wrong in his first season as owner.
