That racist manager in 42 that was giving Jackie Robinson the business was about as bad a sports villian as I've ever seen.
VW's new SUV isn't here and it isn't anywhere else yet because VW is run by incompetent people. It is as simple as that. Their new SUV should have already been somewhere at least 2 years ago. Instead, VW fiddles around while their competition laughs at them. Don't even get me started on VW finally realizing that they have to produce a new updated car in the US more than every 7 years. Good grief. Instead, VW focuses on bringing the UAW into their Chattanooga plant. What a bunch of fools! Figure out how to sell your vehicles in the US for goodness sakes. The sales numbers aren't looking very good. Gee, I wonder why.
Good grief Clay. Hurting for material I guess. Geez.
BJ Upton is hitting around 200. Yet BJ Upton is still hitting in the #2 hole in the lineup which means he gets the 2nd most at bats on the team. Freddie Gonazlez needs to get a clue and drop BJ to the bottom of the order or platoon him with Schafer. BJ Upton gets paid $15 millon per year. He has 3.5 more years left on his contract. Braves GM Frank Wrenn needs to answer for the abomination of a contact he gave BJ Upton. Upton was a declining player. Just look at the stats with Tampa Bay. Yet Frank Wrenn decided to dole out $75 millon over 5 years. BJ's contract, along with the 1.5 years and $20 something million still owed to Uggla have crippled the Braves franchise to the point they are now basically a 500 ball club at best. Not very many moves can be made when you have that many $$$ going to guys who nobody else wants.
If VW is stupid enough to want the UAW at their plant, it won't be long before they exit the entire US market and their plant at Enterprise South is a ghost town. Based on VW's track record (800,000 vehicles sold in the US by when? LOL!), I would just hold onto the incentives and tell VW that Tennessee will get back to them when VW proves it has the competency (no good so far) to sell enough cars to continue to be viable in producing them in the US. Until then, NADA.
VW has to have one of the most incompetent management teams of any company I've ever seen. These morons think they can do here what they did in Germany. Heck, these pinheads can't even figure out where to put a new SUV line. How long does it take for goodness sakes? Are we talking years now? Good grief. These incompetent fools are just now figuring out that you HAVE to update your vehicles in the US more than what they do overseas. Hello! Instead of focusing on selling cars (800,000 cars per year in the US by when again? LOL!), they are caught up in their own idea of a utopian European company in Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA. They have underestimated how many people are sick of groups like the UAW. Instead, VW is supporting the UAW and WANTS the UAW to come into their plant in Chattanooga. This works council thing just has to have the UAW to work here you know! Fools! Not only that, but even after VW's own employees rejected the UAW by a majority vote, VW STILL wants the UAW to come in. I wish I was making this up, but I'm not. Unreal how incompetent the leadership is at VW. If VW continues to focus on idocy like bringing in the UAW, showing a complete lack of leadership in terms of where (and when) to put another SUV line, and coming in late to the game in terms of figuring out what the American consumer wants in a vehicle, it won't be long before VW forces itself to cut tail and run from Enterprise South and the US market entirely.
Why does the CTFP always include the fact that Rhonda Thurman is a hairdresser in every single story about the woman? Good lord.
Why does the CTFP contstantly remind everyone, in every single story it seems, that Rhonda Thurman is a hairdresser? I think I know.
Perhaps we should create a campaign (a REAL campaign) to educate "at risk" youth to get married before having mutliple babies with multiple partners. The breakdown of the family is the real issue here. Single moms with multiple kids with no "daddies" around. Selfish people who put their own gratification ahead of their own kids. It's just sad.
Martin is getting out of Dodge before the team he recruited only wins 10 to 12 games in the 2014/2015 season. Martin is a fine man. We all know this. However, I'm not going to lose sleep over losing a guy who FINALLY, at the end of his 3rd season as coach, did something with an upperclass laden team that included players like McRae and Maymon whom he didn't even recruit. If Stokes goes pro, who is going to score besides Josh Richardson? Martin has recruited a bunch of role players.
I'm convinced that Tennessee can get a better coach than Martin, a better recruiter than Martin, a coach who can assemble a better group of assistants than Martin, a coach who actually knows how to coach offense, a coach who has at least one iota of knowledge when it comes to drawing up an inbounds play, and a coach who actually has some personality and charisma.
Do you think for one second Martin wouldn't get his pink slip after the 2014/2015 debacle that anyone with any basketball knowledge and the talent it takes to win knows is coming? Why put off the inevitable? Let Martin move to Millwaukee and get $1.3 million of buyout money in the coffers to hire a new coach. This is a no brainer.
