Chris, do you pay the UGA game reporter by the word?  Perry made what ultimately was an uncontroverted observation about the conservative playcalls and unsteady execution on Georgia's offense, and next thing I know, I'm listening to GameRewind on tape for about a quarter or so.  Is there a union rule against simply acknowledging the fundamental correctness of a third party observation in the sports rumination business?  Would I be mistaken to observe, in the SEC, the worse your team is, the longer the explanation?

 

Love the show, but I'm old.  However, in my view Rude Awakening displays the best balance of humor, sportsmanship, social perspective and lively chatter in the Atlanta market.  Please do not think that is damning with faint praise.

Good Morning,
 
As I often hear callers on your show say, I very rarely agree with anything that Perry says, but I think he was spot on with the High Horse this morning.
 
I don't think Perry was trying to broad brush every single high school and college football program, but I think football players getting away with things that others would not is still pretty common.  My high school had a bush league team, there was no star, no one good enough to play for a Division 1 college.  Yet, they got deadline extensions on assignments and got to take tests after everyone else so they could concentrate on the game.  When there was a minor crime wave in town, the school & cops blamed all the long haired potheads, when it was, in fact, football players.  When the players got ratted out, nobody did nuthin.
 
When crimes and misdemeanors are tolerated in high school, then in college, no wonder there is a problem in the NFL.  I find it hard to believe that no one knew that Michael Vick was fighting dogs in high school and that no one at VA Tech knew.  I think there were people in authority that knew, they just chose to do nothing about it for whatever reason.  Now you have Jameis Winston, who has already been involved in a sexual assault incident that was handled very, very, poorly, was caught stealing from the grocery store and now this latest incident.  If someone took the time to go back, you'll probably find all sorts of bad behavior in high school that he got away with.  Wait til he gets to the NFL, I see more sexual assault allegations in his future, he's gotten away with wrist slaps for all of his bad behavior so far, what do you expect is going to happen here?

I realize that this has become an extremely controversial issue and I deal with this daily in my practice. But from a strictly legal perspective, In Georgia we are not a retreat to the wall state. Which means you don't have to back up all the way to the wall before you defend yourself from aggression. Now clearly an elevator is a confined area. The wall is not far. It does appear to me from the video that she was lunging towards him when he struck her. I challenge anyone to show me in the caselaw or otherwise that it is illegal for a man to strike a woman. The law is benign as to gender. Under Georgia law you have a right to use the force necessary to defend yourself against aggression which makes this issue a jury question, but has regrettably become a matter of public opinion.

He’s a grown man. I can counsel him in 30 seconds.

YOU ARE A GROWN MAN. STOP HITTING YOUR CHILD!!!!!!!!!!!!

Counseling session is over.

That will be $150.

Please pay the cashier on your way out.

Whats wrong with saying I don’t leave bruises?

I take it to mean he doesn’t “discipline” her to such a point that he will leave bruises. OR, I DON’T HIT MY KID!!!!

This is why guys like Tom Brady have not commented on any of this crap.

Words can be twisted.

Hey, Rude Awakening-

 

If there’s a silver lining to the Peterson issue, maybe it’s this-- grown men talking in public with one another about how they treat their children.  Not a subject that gets much airtime normally, but I appreciate the fact that you guys have not shied away from it this week, and it surely has made for some fascinating listening.

 

Full disclosure, I’m a private school director in Atlanta, have worked with kids for 25 years, and have been pushing for the positive, non-punitive discipline of children for a long time now. So yes, this is my chance to jump in, and I’m taking it!

 

First of all, I’m not convinced that corporal punishment, within limits, is our worst problem in disciplining children. I think the bigger problem is that adults have so little interest in taking the child’s point of view on much of anything, that they constantly confuse parenting with policing. The problem is, while children without freedom may learn how to cow tow to authority, what they don’t learn so well is how and when to stand up to authority—especially when the authority is coming from peers. Only children with plenty of experience of freedom have any chance of developing responsible freedom--at least, that’s been my experience working with kids for going on 3 decades now.

 

Second, there was a gentleman on the air this morning talking about the success of corporal punishment in keeping children out of gangs and whatnot. There are many problems with that argument, and I won’t even go into the research on that claim. Even in the best case scenario, where corporal punishment is done lightly and infrequently, the relevant comparison is not between corporal punishment and neglect (which research shows does correlate with aggression and criminality), but between corporal punishment and positive discipline. Positive discipline starts with the assumption that learning how to cooperate is no different than learning how to do algebra or grill a good steak. You don’t put somebody in timeout—let alone hit them—when they mess up a math problem, or overcook a piece of meat.  Patience, guidance and encouragement  are the keys to teaching cooperation, just like any other kind of teaching. And one thing I can guarantee, those kids who are ending up in gangs are not getting an over-abundance of positive discipline—or positive anything else, for that matter.

 

Finally, I think it’s time for a lot of people to wake up and realize that it’s not enough to have a preference for corporal punishment, like we have a preference for cappuccinos over lattes.  A lot of scientific research has been done on this question, and like Senator Moynihan once said, you are entitled to your own opinions, but not your own facts (see attached).

 

Anyway, thanks guys for facing this issue head on, and maybe Adrian Peterson is helping us all move a couple of steps closer to the humane treatment of children everywhere.

Couple of things. Loved the bit on Kip Adotta. We used to go see him and Jerry Farber almost every week. Farber even showed up at my wedding reception and did some stand up. Still not sure why Perry has a sex therapist doing his roof.  (Dr. Ruth)  J  Take care, Hal

RuRu, if you're a parent, you understand child abuse. You don't condone it, but you understand it.

 

If Dimino was aghast at your Marietta paddling, down in Griffin the principle would do it over the loud speaker. Talk about scared straight!!

Re  Discipline

 

Please stop thinking in absolutes.

 

Time out is an excellent deterrent to bad behavior. 

 

Start a child at age two that abhorrent behavior is treated with removal from society for a short period of time and this can still be used effectively through the teen years.  At an early age a child will learn to stay in the chair….whether it is in Grandma’s house, your house or neighbors house or school.  20 seconds is an eternity to a two year old and thirty minutes will be an equal eternity to a fourteen year old.   I know I spent the BEST years of my life sitting on the basement steps.   Time spent staying after school was also an effective deterrent.

 

Sorry but “go to your room” is not a removal from society in today’s world but sitting at a table in plain view with no books, communication or toys can be a very discouraging punishment to even a teen ager.  Start them young and be consistent.

 

Our Justice System is and has for years been based on “time out”  unfortunately today it is not it is no longer applied correctly in today’s world.

Have to get to work but wanted to comment on corporal punishment.

I can't disagree with "home team" more.

My 3 kids have high grades, well behaved and respectful to there's too.

THEY HAVE NEVER BEEN DISCIPLINED BY BEING HIT.

Discipline comes from the leadership of the household that holds excellent standards and expectations for the child. You don't have to hit your children to achieve those goals.

Also, it is a hypocritical double standard that wives and strangers can't be hit or assaulted, but children can. Especially when churches preach that it is necessary. I could not imagine Christ hitting a child.

Right before halftime of the Falcons/ Bucs blowout I asked the following question...

Sep 19, 2014 -- 2:21pm
Do you play Matt Ryan in the second half? 680tra Why?
 
  •  
    Ranae Collier No!!! Too risky. This is a done deal.
  •  
  •  
    Jeff Blalock Does Tampa play in the second half?
     
  •  
    Chris Kurts They are going to play the cheerleaders in the second half
     
  •  
    Christopher Ej Johnson Yes!!! Because he is my fantasy QB!
     
  •  
    Steve Maxwell I vote no.
     
  •  
    Ranae Collier I don't know. The bus carrying the real Tampa Bay team may show up.
     
  •  
    Bob Burch Yes because he's my fantasy QB. That's the
    Downside of FF. I am loving it as a Falcon fan, but always wanting more
     
  •  
    Christopher Rude Christopher you're right! Can't let the fantasy footballers down?
     
  •  
    Craig Meadows I loved Hester's tribute to Primetime on the punt return for TD. And then he got a penalty! Hey maybe if they let them celebrate in the end zone, they'd blow off some tension and wouldn't go home and beat the wife and kids!
     
  •  
    Bob Burch One more bomb before the half!
     
  •  
    Steve Maxwell I think he's listening Bob!
     
  •  
    Russell Jones Not a chance if i coaching
     
  •  
    Tim Ford Yes at least 3rd qtr
  •  
    Edward Wade Refer to the Manning Rule. Just ask yourself, "what would Patton Manning do?". I think he'd play til midway of the 4th quarter

    Good morning Ru-Ru I just wanted to comment on the issue of domestic violence. You said this morning what of a woman strike a man and the other guys immediately change the subject. No one wants to talk about that because of the political correctness.  People are labeled morons if they are not politically correct.  The bottom line is the NFL like other corporations do that care if any issue.  It's all about the MONEY. If they have to be politically correct  to save a dollar  and prevent from being sued than so be it. Dontae stallworth killed a man driving and it didn't get half the coverage. We have become to sensitive of a society. What ray did was wrong but we all ha en skeletons..

    Guys,

     

    What would be your thoughts on the NFL commish making a rule that if any NCAA player is busted for domestic violence that they will be ineligible for the NFL draft…Period!

    Does the person who claimed he sent the video to the NFL have a name?

    He should come forward if he’s gonna make allegations like that.

      Ray Rice slugs his girlfriend and rightly loses his job.  Ted Kennedy drives drunk, kills his girlfriend, leaves the scene and calls police 9 hours later and he gets reelected umpteen times with no punishment whatsoever.

     
         Danny Ferry makes an ill advised comment and will rightly likely lose his job.  Bill Clinton does some things with a Cohiba and an intern, that yours truly never thought of, then looks into the camera and flat out lies to 300,000,000 people, and as far as I remember didn't lose his job.  
     
         Appears to be a lot safer to be in politics than sports if you're going to screw up doesn't it?

    Rude,

    Love 680 and your show. Love Perry and Dimino. But seriously tired of listening to the two of them argue about EVERYTHING like my two little girls.

    Not sure if it's an intentional play or if they really just don't like each other. But it comes off petty and I keep changing the channel and coming back later hoping they've moved on to something else.

    Disagree. I get it. Quit arguing like kids.

    That owner didn't say anything wrong.  Think about it, how many white people from woodstock are going to go to atlanta at night?  None....the man is a bottom line businessman and let's be real...THE HAWKS ARE A BAD INVESTMENT. 
    Now that being said, this is what I think will happen....The hawks will be sold to a group from st Louis, remember the hawks came here from st louis.  With st louis losing the NFL after this season, they will need something to fill the void and the NBA is perfect.  So Atlanta get ready, you are going to lose the hawks very soon...

    Is Perry realted to the Hawks owner?

    Rude, who was that rude shoe model on your fb page?  Good lord she is hot

    This time of year is when baseball becomes insignificant

    The angels are playing very well right now, but if I were a fan I would be worried that they may be peeking too soon. 

    The 49ers fans travel well...

    Tony Romo....the gift that keeps on giving

    The NBC SNF opening is awful...bring back the curt gowdy theme

    GREAT WIN FOR USC, BUT NOW WE MUST FOCUS ON BOSTON COLLEGE

    _________________________________________________________

    Matt Bryant is the most clutch kicker in the NFL right now and maybe the best of all time.  Does he ever miss in the clutch?  I mean think about it.  
     
    Falcons won't be able to stop anybody, but they may outscore a lot more than I thought they would.  Stephen Jackson needs to sit.  With Jaquez, Antone, and Devonta they have more than enough firepower at running back.  
     
    I'm not saying Serena is overweight, but Michael Turner thinks her thighs are too big.  
     
    Just what men's tennis needs now a Nishikori vs. Cilic final.  Boy the ratings will be through the roof.  "The Price is Right" will probably have more viewers.  Of course, we know there will be one - right Perry??
     
    I think the Hawks owner just wanted a way out (who wouldn't).  Hell this thing was two years old and probably  about as findable as a Lois Lerner email regarding the tea party and yet he self reports it two years later.  Something rotten in Denmark eh??
     
    Johnny Manziel was very athletic and made some incredible moves, but after seeing what Hill has done in his first two games, do you think they both might be products of the "system"  I think Cleveland blew it once again.
