  2. [2020] Week 12 Freshmen Quarterback Update

    I'm not sure why you have Singletary and Milner in different tiers; they have very comparable stats. Sure, Singletary has Ward, but he also has a garbage O-Line protecting him. Meanwhile, Milner has worse receivers but a significantly better O-Line (TCU has 4 tackles on their roster that would be my starting LT). I just think that, overall, their stats are way too similar (with offenses of similar skill) to justify putting them in seperate tiers.
  3. I think that, knowing what I know now, I'd trade down for more draft capital, then draft Brown or Hall in 2015. If my prescience only extended to the players in the 2014 draft, however, I'd take Skaggs 100%. He's much been much better than Johnson over their time in the league (Johnson was pretty good this year, but we'll see if that continues in the future).

  5. [2020] Walter Payton Man of the Year nominations

    The New England Patriots nominate CB Dave Stokley for his work with his foundation Stoke's Tokes, which supplies medical marijuana to sick people who would otherwise be unable to afford it. Since being founded in 2019 in memory of Stokley's deceased father, the foundation has raised almost $300,000 for residents of Minnesota, Stokley's home state. Read an interview with Stokley here, published in the August 7th, 2020 issue of The Boston Globe:
  6. Dave Stokley, star cornerback for the New England Patriots, is well-known for his elite ball-hawking and dominant coverage skills. Racking up 29 total interceptions throughout his career, he is the cornerstone of the Patriots' defense. Despite being known for taking the ball away on the field, Stokley is well-known for giving back to his community off the field. Through his foundation Stoke's Tokes, Stokley gives medical marijuana to those who need it. Through the foundation, Stokley has given almost $300,000 back to his community since the foundation's founding last year. Our very own reporter Constance Bourchier sat down for a chat with Stokley to discuss how his foundation came to be and his goals for the future. Constance Bourchier: Thanks for being here today, Dave. First of all, I have to ask the obvious question: why is your foundation dedicated to supplying medical marijuana? Dave Stokley: This is a really personal story, but in June of 2014 my dad was diagnosed with cancer. The first year was hell for him. He was in massive pain, and he always felt like crap because of the radiation and chemo. He'd constantly be vomiting and his life was just terrible. Then, in July of 2015, Minnesota started distributing medical marijuana. For my dad, it was like night and day. His pain mostly went away, and he wasn't sick nearly as often. He wound up passing last year because of the cancer, but his last four years he felt so much better because of the marijuana. I saw what it did for him, and then I read about these people, a lot of them kids, suffering from all these terrible diseases and conditions that can be treated with marijuana, and I thought “wow, I should do something to help these people.” So I did. CB: My condolences for your father. Now, tell me about who Stoke's Tokes helps. DS: Well, it helps people that need medical marijuana who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford it. A lot of these people are kids, suffering from some of the roughest diseases you can imagine: cancer, ALS, seizures, you name it. Their families often don't have insurance, and they can't afford to get the marijuana without it. The foundation steps in and pays for it for them so the kid (or adult, we help a lot of them too) can have a better quality of life. CB: Now, I hate to ask, but: how do you keep people from exploiting the foundation to get free weed? DS: Minnesota actually has pretty strict laws regarding medical marijuana, you have to actually have a serious disease to get some. Beyond that, though, the foundation will occasionally check in with people to make sure it's being used in a responsible manner. CB: And the foundation also supports the legalization of medical marijuana nationwide, right? DS: Yeah it does. I've hosted several events throughout the country to help raise support for the legalization of medical marijuana. This is an issue that's really personal to me because of my dad, so I hope that we see some real change soon. CB: Well, I'm out of time and questions. Thank you very much for sitting down with me today, Dave. DS: Thanks for having me. I realize that this charity is a bit unorthodox, but we are really helping people and I hope that we can continue in the future.

    Actually, just replace Texas on your map with the one from this: And it'll be perfect.

    I think DFW should be Southwest, the metroplex has much more in common with Austin than it does with OKC or Bismarck.

  11. Werewolf Mafia 2.0 Thread

    Yeah sure, lynch monark I guess.
  12. Werewolf Mafia 2.0 Thread

    Alright, so people that haven't yet role-claimed: Hagan, monark, UBL, Flutie.
  13. Werewolf Mafia 2.0 Thread

    From the way the priest's ability is worded "Is able to view a player’s role once during the game. They must announce publicly who and when they are investigating." I assumed that they could use the ability during the day. Regardless, we still have enough warm bodies to win even if he can't.
  14. Werewolf Mafia 2.0 Thread

    Alright, so here's how we play this. Everyone role claims. Assuming 2 remaining wolves, there are 2 sets people that are going to claim the same role. The priest investigates one of the people. If that person comes up as town, we know the other person claiming the role is mafia. If they come up as mafia, then, well, they're mafia. Regardless, we've successfully identified one mafia member and lynch them today. Tonight a townie dies. Tomorrow we lynch one of the remaining two people. If they're mafia, great, otherwise a townie dies that night and we lynch the one remaining mafia member the next day.
  15. Werewolf Mafia 2.0 Thread

    Yeah, I agree. I'm pretty sure that at this point, if everyone claims roles we have enough warm bodies that we can just identify the two discrepancies and then lynch them. I'll start: I'm the Barber.

    Cupid Little Girl Scapegoat Priest Brothers (x2) Barber Wolves (x2) And then the two lovers.

    lol why did someone write me in as a candidate for sheriff?
  18. Werewolf Mafia 2.0 Thread

    Yeah, I'm back on the lynch Time train.
  19. Werewolf Mafia 2.0 Thread

    We're actually dangerously close to lynching him without giving him a chance to respond, so unlynch Time for now.
  20. Werewolf Mafia 2.0 Thread

    Eh sure, why not. Lynch Time.
  21. Werewolf Mafia 2.0 Thread

    Can we start getting a list going of claimed roles? So far I have: Sisters: ajyoungmark and SSS Witch: bingo415 Fortune Teller/Village Idiot: TazerMan Am I missing anyone?
  22. Werewolf Mafia 2.0 Thread

    You're forgetting that the lovers are assigned the role of lovers on top of their other roles, so you can't include them in your count.
  23. Werewolf Mafia 2.0 Thread

    /s to that last statement before someone takes it seriously and accuses me of being a wolf.
  24. Werewolf Mafia 2.0 Thread

    So, being the hunter, Imposter took down a wolf with him. Meanwhile, the witch killed our sheriff. Good job, witch!
  25. Werewolf Mafia 2.0 Thread

    Yeah, I'm pretty quiet in mafia games (you can check the previous games if you don't believe me). I stand by what I said when I voted to lynch, though -- I think it's in our best interests to lynch today, and I think Zack is the best target to lynch. His response really didn't change my feelings towards the matter.
