    No engine on Sodor needs a gun. If someone dumps a crate of treacle all over you, you shunt him off the tracks and down a hill. That'll teach all the other engines and those troublesome trucks real quick not to **** with you.
  2. Kaep probably doesn’t need you or I to be his financial advisor, but IMO, he’s done well so far with his donations. I don’t know what more he plans to do with his money—he sent out the $1m in a year that’s still early in his activist life. Maybe there are other things he thinks he can do that mean more than money. SI had a good piece about how Kaep chose which organizations to donate to and how the money is used: https://www.si.com/sportsperson/2017/12/06/colin-kaepernick-charity-giving-donations As far as “rights,” that’s what this whole thing is about, and I don’t see how that’s less of a platitude than talking about an obligation of duties. I also don’t think Kaepernick’s camp instructs kids to make extravagant demands in exchange for no effort to improve their lives and the well-being of their communities: https://www.thenation.com/article/colin-kaepernicks-message-to-chicago-youth-know-your-rights/ I have also seen comments here about “equality of outcome,” but American activism is not at that point. Most of the American left—from moderate Democrats through progressives up to the beginnings of the modern “Democratic Socialist” movement—has a different goal: equity of access. Metaphorically speaking, not everybody’s going to get (or even want) the same sized slice of cake, but we all should have a seat at the table. Even Kaepernick’s camp, which is influenced by a historic militant black liberation group that promoted extreme “self-reliance,” follows much more along the ongoing civil rights movement’s path than it does a list of demands by a Black Panther Party almost at war with the state. Edit to add the “kneeling” movement never left the public consciousness over here. This offseason, we had a lot of discussions in the public in private and in the press about a ham-handed and ultimately unsuccessful attempt by the NFL to implement punishments for kneeling during the anthem, comments by President Trump ripping this movement right up through this week, and comments by players publicly rebuking the NFL and the President.
  3. 1) https://knowyourrightscamp.com/ 2) https://kaepernick7.com/blogs/million-dollar-pledge 3) The Players Coalition, a social advocacy nonprofit governed by 12 NFL players, directly linked the genesis of their organization to Kaepernick (even though Kaepernick himself is not a part of the organization, partly due to his own advocacy commitments, partly due to him not being a contracted NFL player, and partly due to his ongoing legal battle against the NFL). 4) Even discounting the above, I think it's unfair to say Kaepernick has brought only "words" to the table, as it cannot be denied that his protest and subsequent activities brought more attention and action towards social inequality and police brutality.
  4. Tell the 20somethings in the squad they'll get to play FIFA on those big screens every time we win, and we'll romp our way back to the Champions League.

    What if watford do a leicester

    If the table looks the way it does now after Leicester's game at Watford on March 2, then I'd much prefer Watford to be the club to go on and win the title.

    At least with that, you get an ESPN Insider subscription the EFL games, MLS, MLB, NHL, college sports, grand slam tennis, and a few other world sports events. It's frustrating to have to pay for some things we've gotten as part of our subscriptions in the past, but at least ESPN+ offers a lot of other things we didn't otherwise get, it could be considered better value for the extra money people often pay in their cable subscriptions for beIn, and it's OK value if you watch other sports and you've cut the cord (which I've had to do this year). I feel like sports has been the only thing keeping cable TV together over the past few years, but we're about to cross the Rubicon of all à la carte subscription services.

    Football Kits: 2018-19

    https://www.footyheadlines.com/2018/07/brighton-18-19-kits.html Maybe it's I that's being ridiculous here, but Brighton's home and away strips both have white shorts, but they're just the slightest bit different--the home one has a red swoosh while the away one has a black swoosh. Also, their away strip has black socks with a tiny amount of blue trim, while their 3rd strip has black socks with no trim. Why not just have one set of white shorts and one set of black socks? Mix and match just like teams used to do back in the day.
  15. I've always thought '48/'49 badge looks like someone making a hand shadow fox than an actual fox, but I suppose that was top-notch design for the era. I also think we need to do more throwback designs. I can't think of any retro-inspired shirts aside from the two black and blue away shirts harking back to the club's first kit (maybe the 2011-12 shirt evokes the 1998-2002, if we're being generous). There's a reason FTers bang on about those double-pinstriped '80s shirts every summer here.
