Though I am a fan of the Titans, I am not quite as happy as we have our starters and just having a bad season nonetheless. Maybe Henry's even last?

You had to mention Derreck Henry, didn't you? It pains me to see one of the best running backs who ever lived spend just about his entire career on a team that half the time seemed almost stubbornly insistent on NOT using his incredible talent to win games. I'm going through a similar feeling with Saquon Barkley of the Giants. Part of me wants him to be a Giant for life and the other part wants him to go to a team that allows him to illustrate just how amazing an RB he is. Look what a difference getting Christian McCaffrey out of Carolina made.

NY Giants 🤝 Tennessee Titans - Meaningless sensational upsets

Not meaningless if you're a fan of both teams (which I am). Both of their seasons are over, yes, but holy cow it was good to see both teams play with some pride finally and compete hard against better teams than them. Factor in that the Jets beat a better team on Sunday, and I have been as happy a fan as I have been in quite some time.

EDIT: Oh, and also LGR!!!!!

I still don't understand what happened last night! I enjoy most every win but its shades of bitter hollowness for me personally.

Glad Giants fans had an excellent night. I HATE that ESPN stacked identical kickoff times, so I practically didn't get to see your game.

And that's different from any other management at any other company how? Far more rampant than racism is bigotry, ageism especially. And that's all industries. Any company not hiring on merit is one that will eventually fail.

O'Keefe is currently under investigation. Non profits have restrictions on how they can spend their money, and it looks like he may have run afoul of them.

Small point of order, since I have no dog in this fight, but Paul Cormier was the the CEO of Red Hat (a wholly owned subsidiary of IBM) from 4/6/20 to 7/12/22. Depending on when the video was recorded, he could very well have been the CEO of Red Hat at the time of recording. He still acts as the chairman of Red Hat.

A hit piece is a hit piece is a hit piece.

O'Keefe is a far right scumbag conspiracist, who else would show up at IBM and knock on the door claiming he might have been followed. Keep your enemies close and your propagandists closer.

O'Keefe Media Group?

Listen, I'm not going to say we should frequently shoot the messenger, but when the messenger does everything possible to lie and mislead, eventually you should just write him off.

Wow, that leaked IBM video is going to ruffle a lot of feathers
What video?


I was confused, so I googled it. It's a James O'Keefe thing, so without watching it it's probably entirely misrepresented and out of context.
It's amazing that O'Keefe is still out there. Even if he does occasional good/accurate things, his name is so tarnished he shouldn't be attaching it to things. But he does. Because some people don't look into his history of blatantly making things up, or of claiming very junior people speculating on first dates are "executives" with inside knowledge few outside the C-suite would have.

If you actually watched it, you'd see that it is in fact a leaked video
CEO of IBM Coerces Employees, Threatens to Cut Bonuses Unless They Discriminate in Hiring

"The CEO of IBM has admitted, on camera, that he wants people hired only on the basis of skin color rather than ability, and he will fire managers below him who refuse to play along."
Maybe you should watch that video.
No where in that video did the CEO of IBM mention firing anyone. As for bonuses, they're called a bonus for a reason.
It's nothing more than pure James O'Keefe fictional propaganda.

I guess you're watching a different video. You didn't hear Paul Cormier (Red Hat/IBM) say "I could name multiple leaders over the last year plus that were held accountable to the point that they're no longer here at Red Hat, because they weren't willing to live up to standards that we set in this space"? I suppose the vid could be out of context, but doesn't look/sound that way to me. It looks pretty bad IMO

I made so much noise watching the new Dune trailer that dropped today that i had to put the dogs outside because they thought there was an intruder.

It was a tasty trailer but I am still having a hard time buying in to Chalamet being Paul Atreides.
