-That "incidental contact" on Roddy White was about as incidental as Ray Rice's left hook.  And that was a very                        critical play.  I believe the Falcons were driving to tie the score and that pretty much stalled the drive.
 
-The officiating in college and pro is getting worse and worse especially regarding pass interference and illegal contact.  Sometimes they let them mug each other with no call and the next time it is ridiculous in the other direction.  That offensive interference on "89" of the Rams tonight was idiotic, and once again that might have led to a score an 18 point lead.
 
- Are they still playing baseball?? Does anyone care??
 
- Falcons are dead.  I believe Dmitroff needs to go (Just too many misses on free agents and draft picks), but I'd keep Smith based on the fact he has absolutely nothing to work with except Ryan, Jones, Matthews, Truffant and that's about it.  How many of the 11 defensive starters and the other 4 offensive linemen would be starting on other teams??  Nada.  No coach could win with this talent.  I said 5-11 to start the season now that may be a little rose colored.
 
 
On page 16 of this week's SI, there is a short story with a chart depicting how well NBA teams do in picking and developing talent.  It includes a chart which supposedly includes all the NBA teams, giving them a draft ranking and compares it to regular season finishes over the past five regular seasons.
 
There are 30 teams in the NBA.  Unless I am blind I count 29 team logos shown on this graph.  I guess I don't have to tell you which of the 30 logos is missing.   Just another example of how far down the national totem pole, pro sports in Atlanta resides.  Unfu&*^believable

Glad to hear that Chris D understood how to help his child in crisis. (I have 
girls too)

That IS parenting and how you earn live and respect from your kids.

Being there for them in cases like that gives you the ability to correct them 
without being harsh and violent.

Great story.

This Gurley situation got me thinking about paying college athletes, and here is what I think.

You obviously can't pay college athletes because you couldn't control it or decide who gets paid, "Does a star player & a 3rd stringer get paid the same/Do female soccer players get paid as much as Alabama football players?"

I feel the only thing that could work is if there were NCAA authorized autograph sessions where a star player could be paid a pre set amount of money per autograph.  The money would be put in a savings fund for the player to have access to after their eligibility is up. The funds could grow interest like a CD and players could draw a pre set amount of money out per month if they wish. The draw amount would fluctuate depending on cost of living.  This way players are not paid by the NCAA for playing sports, but could make extra money in college for the sale of their likeness and fame. 

 

What are your thoughts on my solution?

Please stop your callers from blasting Todd Gurley.  I think that there are too many people calling into your show ripping this man apart who have no idea of his situation.  I love your show, but having a bunch of older, white males calling in saying he has bad "character" issues and is greedy is disgusting.

I'm a 28 year old, white, male graduate of UGA and realize that the cost of going to UGA isn't as much as people think.  He's not getting a $100,000 education.  I left UGA with under $30k in student loans.  Chill on that front.

Also, people need to understand what Todd Gurley is going through.  He comes from a home with a single mother in rural/poor North Carolina.  He gets to go to (in my opinion God's land at) the University of Georgia while his mom and family (one of whom is in jail) struggles and waits in North Carolina.  Do you really think anybody who calls into your show knows how that feels?  I know I would want the best for my family and would feel terrible enjoying myself while my family struggles.  Walk in those shoes then tell me what you would do when you could send some much needed money home.

Yes, he did break the rules.  Yes, it was selfish.  But most importantly, cut the man some slack because you have no idea what's going on!  Plus, the rest of UGA's season is still unwritten!

I'm going to flip the script a little and also say don't bash the NCAA.  While Mark Emmert and Jere Morehead are not feeling any financial strife, the NCAA and UGA are non-profits and all of the money they clear from football should go back into helping the amateur college athlete.  Life is definitely better for the average college athlete than it was 10 years ago because the NCAA has made more money (ask Buck if you don't think so).  Also, people need to understand that these rules are in place to create a level playing field for universities.  Sure, there are some natural indifferences between your haves and have-nots, but these rules help level those indifferences as much as they can.  I think without these rules, you won't see the upsets like Appalachian State over Michigan.

Please inform your callers that there is more to this situation than selfishness and greed on both fronts.

Love the show! #freegurley

Rude,

Daily listerner- lifetime Atlantan- 65 years young - Disco Survivor- lived at Riverbend during the 70s and had more fun than should have been allowed. Atlanta will NEVER SEE A TIME LIKE THAT AGAIN!
Now -  just wanted to agree with you that That's The Way of The World- Earth, Wind and Fire is a CLASSIC from the 70's. Heard it today on XM and it was always a great song and always will be- probably in my and your opinion their BEST. We used to dance to the Trammps - Disco Inferno, K. C., Donna Summer etc. @Jeryls, Magruders, Elan etc. and the slow songs (like EW&F) were always great to slow it down. Just a long note to say I like the show and you got it RIGHT with the Way of the World.

ROCK ON!
