  • In a shocking turn of events, NWA-TNA announced last week that Vince Russo was joining the promotion, less than 3 weeks after he returned to WWE. Russo's return to WWE was announced as joining the company as part of the creative team on 6/20, but after his first creative meeting, he was demoted to consultant and was paid $1,000 a week to sit at home and send in written critiques of the weekly TV shows. Russo didn't have a contract and it's no secret that his return was deeply unpopular in the locker room and even more unpopular in the office among those who still resent him for how he left in 1999. Russo has told friends that he feels like WWE is a mess and it won't change because Vince McMahon won't remove Stephanie McMahon from her position as head writer. Russo recently sold his record store in Atlanta and was planning to move back up north (he never liked living in the south, but moved there when he went to WCW) but he hasn't moved yet. According to TNA sources, Russo will essentially help with production and writing of the shows. TNA is way understaffed when it comes to people with experience producing live shows like this. Russo was introduced to the staff on 7/9 and, much like in WWE, there were a lot of unhappy people who weren't the least bit happy to see him. He's not exactly the most well-liked guy in the business. But he's still good friends with Jeff Jarrett and Russo had already been contributing ideas and storylines for this company before the brief WWE return anyway. At the time, Russo's involvement was being kept secret because of his lawsuit with Hulk Hogan. AOL/Time Warner was representing him (since the incident happened in WCW). They only agreed to represent him as long as he didn't go work for another wrestling promotion. When the WWE offer came along, Russo managed to get AOL/Time Warner to drop that stipulation, which allowed him to go work for WWE. And now, subsequently, TNA. The lawsuit with Hogan is still ongoing and AOL/Time Warner's lawyers are still repping Russo.
  • Kevin Nash will be out of action for god knows how long after tearing his left quad in a match on Raw. It was Nash's first match back since suffering a bicep tear back in March. After tagging in, he tore his quad on the first move. It's the same injury Triple H suffered that kept him out for over 7 months and there's no way that Nash—who's 10 years older than Triple H—is about to put himself through the same grueling rehab that Triple H did. Triple H moved to Birmingham and lived there 24/7 doing Dr. James Andrews full-time rehab program. Nash has kids and a family and shit, he's probably not moving to Birmingham so he can do rehab 3 times a day. Dave suspects this is gonna take a bit longer for Nash (ended up being around 9 months). The injury occurred in a 10-man tag match that Nash wasn't even scheduled for until he found out the day of the show. Nash's original return to the ring was supposed to be on house shows later that week. The match was planned and designed to get Nash over as a huge monster and build him into one of the top 5 or so major main event stars in the company, because the plan was to do Nash vs. Triple H at Summerslam in one of the top matches (with Rock/Brock and Hogan/Vince penciled in as the other top matches). But as soon as Nash tagged in, he kicked Booker T, but then tripped over him when trying to step over Booker and collapsed, grabbing his thigh and screaming in pain. The match fell apart and nobody knew what to do until Shawn Michaels (not even in the match, just outside the ring) took charge and started telling guys what to do and calling spots. He improvised a superkick on Booker T and told Big Show to chokeslam him to finish it. The next day, Nash underwent surgery from Dr. James Andrews, who has done several previous surgeries on Nash (knee, bicep, elbow, and more). All in all, not a bump gone wrong or anything, just a freak accident.
WATCH: Kevin Nash tears his quad
  • Bret Hart has written a new column in the Calgary Sun, his first since suffering his recent stroke. Dave copies and pastes the whole column here, but I'll just cliff notes it: Bret is doing as well as can be expected. Made a stupid mistake by bike riding without a helmet because he'd been too lazy to fix the broken chin-strap. Hit a pothole, crashed his bicycle, hit his head, believes he suffered a stroke on impact. Was unable to move the left side of his body. Used his cell phone to call for help. Thanks fans, doctors, nurses, wife, kids, family, friends, etc. for being there for him. Promises he'll recover. Dave says Bret's progress has been slow but steady over the past week. He can take small steps with help but is mostly still confined to a bed and wheelchair and is only just now getting feeling back in his left leg. He's spending his time doing therapy and working on his autobiography which is apparently already 960 pages deep and he's only up to the late-80s so far. Doctors were surprised Bret was able to work on his book since they expected him to have memory issues or problems writing due to the stroke, but he has neither. Dave says Bret has talked about dividing the book up into 3 parts and releasing them that way due to the length (it only ended up being around 600 pages so he must have had a merciless editor).
  • WWE reached an out-of-court settlement this week with the Parents Television Council which will award WWE $3.5 million and a public apology from the PTC, as well as a promise that they will leave WWE alone. As part of the settlement, PTC agreed to never have any involvement with WWE business in the future, to never urge boycotts of WWE or of WWE sponsors. PTC head L. Brent Bozell had to issue a public apology to the WWE and Vince McMahon and the apology must be posted on the PTC's website home page for 6 months. They also must remove all other content from its website relating to WWE, its advertisers, or the accusations that WWE held any responsibility in the deaths of several children. Also, if WWE decides to make him do so, they can request Bozell meet with WWE advertisers personally to further explain his apology, and he'll be required to do it. Long story short: the PTC got absolutely fucking SPANKED here. The PTC will not be paying the settlement out of pocket, it will be paid by insurance, which is the only thing that is allowing them to even stay in business because without them, that $3.5 million would have killed the organization. The case was expected to go to trial in September and WWE was seeking $55 million in damages. And they likely would have won easily, so the PTC didn't have much of a choice here. They had to settle.
  • In addition to the above, attorney Jim Lewis (who represented Lionell Tate, one of the kids who was convicted of murdering a young girl) must also publicly apologize for claiming that Tate's actions were inspired by what he saw watching wrestling. Dave recaps the history of the PTC going after WWF at the height of its Attitude Era success, crusading against WWF by targeting their sponsors. At first, the PTC made some valid points about some of the extremely questionable content WWF was producing. Problem is, then they started outright lying and their claims got more and more outlandish, and Bozell turned it into a personal mission to take down Vince McMahon and the WWE, to the point that they crossed over into libel and defamation. They also used fake and misleading statistics when pressuring sponsors. All of this led to WWE taking them to court and mollywhopping dat ass. (I've actually done a lot of research on this WWE/PTC case for some other thing I'm writing and it's a really fun case to read about. WWE's past is pretty indefensible sometimes, but Bozell was out of his mind obsessed with destroying them. He's a hardcore right-wing conservative and his battle with WWE was literally a moral and religious crusade to him. To this day, I bet it eats Bozell alive that he got owned so thoroughly and had to release such a humbling apology. And oh, bet your ass, we're about to read that apology):
  • Bozell's and PTC's public apology on their website reads the following:
`Media Research Center (MRC), Parents Television Council (PTC), Dr. Delores Tucker, Mark Honig and I have in the past made statements regarding so-called wrestling deaths — children killed by other children alleged to be mimicking “professional wrestling” moves they saw on television.
We made such statements to members of MRC and PTC, the media, advertisers on World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) SmackDown! program, retailers that sell WWE-related toys and merchandise, public officials and the public.
MRC and PTC also produced a videotape as part of a fundraising campaign in connection with its “National Campaign to Clean Up TV Now!”, which advanced the notion that the murder of Tiffany Eunick was caused by the influence of professional wrestling on Lionel Tate.
The videotape included interviews with Lionel Tate’s lawyer advancing the notion that the murder of Tiffany Eunick, the victim, was directly caused by the impact that professional wrestling had on Lionel Tate.
We based our statements on media reports and source information. We now believe, based on extensive investigation and facts which have come to light since making those statements that it was wrong for MRC, PTC, their spokespersons and myself to have said anything that could be construed as blaming WWE or any of its programs for the deaths of the children.
Simply put, it was premature to reach that conclusion when we did, and there is now ample evidence to show that conclusion was incorrect. I now believe that professional wrestling played no role in the murder of Tiffany Eunick, which was a part of our “Clean Up TV Now!” campaign and am equally convinced that it was incorrect and wrong to have blamed WWE or any of its programs for the deaths of the other children.
Because of our statements, PTC, MRC and the WWE have been in litigation since November 2000. WWE vigorously advanced its position that neither it, nor “professional wrestling” led to these deaths.
WWE also contended that MRC, PTC, their spokespersons and I had misrepresented the number of advertisers who withdrew support from WWE’s SmackDown! television program after receiving communications from the PTC, some of which regrettably connected the WWE and SmackDown! to the deaths of children.
As such, WWE exercised its right to initiate this litigation, during which facts came to light that prompted me to make this statement.
By this retraction, I want to be clear that WWE was correct in pointing out that various statements made by MRC, PTC and me were inaccurate concerning the identity and number of WWE SmackDown! advertisers who withdrew support from the program. Many of the companies we stated had “withdrawn” or pulled their support had never, in fact, advertised on SmackDown! nor had any plan to advertise on SmackDown!
Again, we regret this error and retract any such misleading statements.
Finally, concerning the statements about child wrestling deaths, it was wrong to have stated or implied that WWE or any of its programs caused these tragic deaths. Specifically concerning the Lionel Tate case, recent developments lead us to believe that others and we were given, and relied upon, false information provided by parties close to the case.
The information that we were given and relied upon may have been designed to make a national example of the Florida murder trial, pinning the blame on WWE.
For example, we were told by a source that Lionel Tate was watching a WWE program when he assaulted Tiffany Eunick. In fact, Lionel Tate was watching the “Flintstones” and a cartoon entitled “Cow and Chicken.” We were also told, by a source, that Lionel Tate killed Tiffany Eunick while executing a wrestling move unique to a WWE character called the “Stone Cold Stunner”.
We have since learned that this was not true, nor was there any evidence that it was true. It is now well documented that after the Tate trial concluded, the presiding Judge said it was “inconceivable” that Tiffany Eunick’s injuries were caused by Lionel Tate mimicking wrestling moves.
Indeed, since the trial ended, Lionel Tate’s new lawyers have filed court papers in which they admit that the “wrestling defense” was, in their words, “bogus.”
Given these facts, WWE was within its rights to be angry at the MRC, PTC, their spokespersons and I for contacting WWE’s advertisers to go beyond complaining about WWE content but passing along accusations which we now know were false. Because I feel a simple retraction is not sufficient, I have personally extended my apology to Vince McMahon and the WWE on behalf of MRC, PTC, Dr. Tucker, Mr. Honig and me.
Through this letter, I now make this apology public and specifically directed to the advertising community that has in the past, is currently or may in the future consider advertising or sponsoring WWE programming.
The PTC can have its concern with the content of WWE’s television programming – though these concerns have been reduced significantly over the past years as a reflection of WWE’s changed standards. But nowhere in that debate, including in the correspondence and statements to the advertising community, should there have been any discussion of “wrestling” deaths.
I regret this happening. It wasn’t fair to WWE.
And I say this emphatically: Please disregard what others and we have said in the past about the Florida “wrestling” death. Neither “wrestling” in general, nor WWE specifically, had anything to do with it. Of that I am certain.’
  • PRIDE and K-1 announced their plans to put on the biggest event in MMA history, with a joint show in August, with hopes to draw 100,000 people to the Tokyo National Soccer Stadium. The original plan was for the show to take place on Aug. 29th, but they changed it to the 28th to avoid going head-to-head with a major NJPW show at Buddokan Hall which would have drawn many of the same fans they're trying to get. However, this is during monsoon season in Japan and it's an outdoor stadium, so just in case, they've got the stadium on reserve for several days in the event the scheduled date gets rained out. Here's the problem: this stadium only holds 60,000 for soccer games, so even if you add ground seating, realistically, you can only pack probably 80,000 at most. So the claim that they're going to draw 100,000 fans is "just as legitimate as the 93,173 number that WWE uses for its record." Dave notes that the real record for biggest paid attendance for a wrestling show is Summerslam 92 with the Hart/Bulldog match drawing 78,927 confirmed paid. But whatever. The plan for this show is for it to be an 8-9 match card, with every fight being dream matches featuring big name fighters. Rules for each fight will be unique and it will air on prime time TV in Japan. The main event will be Kazushi Sakuraba vs. Mirko Cro Cop, plus Dave breaks down a bunch of other planned or rumored match-ups.
  • Dave looks at some business numbers and it ain't good news. Just to give one example, WWE's average attendance-per-show was 4,711 during the month of June, which is the lowest month for attendance since Feb. 1997. And most of the tickets for those shows were sold before Austin walked out. So once fans realize that Austin really is gone (at least for now) and not coming back anytime soon, the coming months could look even more dire for ticket sales.
  • AAA's Triplemania X event took place last week (again) and ended with Octagon unmasking Pentagon in a mask vs. mask match. I only mention this because there have been lots of "Pentagon" characters over the years in AAA and later the indies in Mexico, portrayed by different people. But this match ended up being the last time the Pentagon gimmick would be used in AAA for the next decade.....until AEW star Pentagon Jr. began using the gimmick in 2012.
  • Keiji Muto is apparently trying to shorten what's left of his career by being a complete madman. Muto is already beyond banged up, with knees that should have retired him years ago. He has no business working a full schedule at this stage in his career, but he's AJPW's biggest star and best draw, so he is continuing to work every show. But now he's taking it a step further. Muto will be working 3 separate matches in one night for AJPW's upcoming Budokan Hall show. He's doing the Mick Foley gimmick, where he will wrestle under a different gimmick for each match. He'll be wrestling as Muto, Great Muta, and Kokushi Muso (the gimmick he uses only when he teams with Hakushi and paints his body in similar fashion). So yeah.
  • Vader was arrested in his hometown of Boulder, CO earlier this month for allegedly spitting at a police officer, threatening the officers with rocks, resisting arrest, drinking and driving, careless driving, and leaving the scene of an accident. It ended up taking 8 officers and 2 police dogs on the scene before Vader agreed to be arrested peacefully, and they used multiple sets of handcuffs. It started when Vader crashed his van into some bushes, but then backed out, left the scene, and drove home (about a block away). Police came to his home and found Vader severely intoxicated and barely able to stand. At some point, Vader told the police, "I will and can kick all of your asses! Let's fight!" The police brought in the police dogs, but Vader still wouldn't back down and threatened to kill the dogs if they came at him. Then he picked up rocks and threatened to throw them and spit at one of the cops, but missed. The other cops showed up and they eventually calmed him down and arrested him. According to records, Vader has 2 prior DUI arrests in Boulder. This all occurred just days before he was scheduled to leave for Japan for the latest NOAH tour but he still went and is over there working shows now.
  • Kenta Kobashi finally made his real in-ring return after more than a year out of action (aside from the one comeback match where he re-injured himself for 4 more months). Kobashi has been told in no uncertain terms that one more knee injury and he's done for good. Dave figures that knee injury is inevitable. Kobashi is working opening matches all week, teaming with the rookies and doing hot tag spots for now.
  • Former IWGP champion Kazuyuki Fujita is scheduled to make his return to NJPW next week after being out of action the past 7 months with a torn Achilles that caused him to vacate the IWGP title. He's going to continue doing shoot fights as well.
  • Manami Toyota, arguably (is it even arguable) the greatest female wrestler of all time, announced she is leaving All Japan Women and jumping ship to Gaea. Toyota has spent her entire 15 year career working for AJW so this is a surprise and a pretty big blow to AJW.
  • Jesse Ventura was rushed to the hospital this week with a blood clot in his lung after complaining of chest pains. He's now in stable condition, on blood thinners, and should be okay. Ventura has a history of blood clots and a pulmonary embolism in 1984 took him out of action right before he was about to start a lengthy (and surely lucrative) feud with Hulk Hogan. He eventually returned and wrestled for another year, mostly in tag teams and such, before retiring due to the health issues.
  • Dave has some anecdotal evidence of how TNA's viewership numbers are going and it ain't pretty. Between week 1 and week 2, there was a full 50% drop in responses to the reader poll Dave put out on the show. That was to be expected. But the drop from Week 2 to Week 3 was another 41% drop from that. So we're only a few weeks in and it appears this company is already hemorrhaging viewers. Internally, TNA is basically flaunting the preliminary numbers they got from the PPV providers that show they're doing big buyrates. Dave feels sorry for them because he's been following the PPV industry since it began and the preliminary numbers from the providers are ALWAYS wrong and ALWAYS substantially higher than what the real number ends up being. Dave basically says TNA is getting excited over fake numbers and if they're basing their future on what they expect to pull in financially, they're going to be VERY disappointed a few months from now when the real numbers are revealed and those PPV checks end up being way less than they're expecting. TNA's weekly production costs are around $200,000, which means they need at least 50,000 buys per week just to break even on the production costs (and that's not counting all the other costs like paying the wrestlers, advertising, etc. that I'm sure they'd like to have some extra money for). So we're only a few weeks in and, yet again, this whole project still does not seem sustainable.
  • Notes from TNA Weekly PPV: this was by far the weakest of the 3 shows so far. Dave thinks they're trying too hard to copy much of WWE's formula, rather than focusing on what makes them different or what they can do better. They were in Nashville this week, with about 2,000 fans (1,100 paid, the rest freebies). There's a lot of young talent here and they have potential, but so many of them aren't ready for the national stage and it showed. They did almost nothing to promote or build for next week's show, which is a killer when you're depending on people to pay for it every week. Dave thinks it felt like an episode of WCW Thunder. More production mistakes (wrong names on the screen during introductions, etc.). They announced Japanese wrestler Takao Omori and Christopher Daniels will be there next week, but made no effort to educate fans on who those people are or why anyone should care. Monty Brown made his debut and Dave is impressed, since he looks good, was athletic, and has some good mic skills and he thinks TNA did a better job of debuting and protecting him than WWE usually does with new guys. Another angle with NASCAR driver Hermie Sadler and it sucked, leading Dave to joke that Sterling Martin carried their tag team last time. 6 matches into the show and Dave says not a single one of them has even reached the 1-star mark. Thankfully, AJ Styles and David Young saved the show with a 2.25 star classic. Brian Christopher turned heel on Scott Hall, leading Hall to do a stretcher job in what was a pretty good angle but, ya know....it's Jarrett and Brian Christopher.
  • Various other TNA news and notes: they've been taking out radio ads to promote the shows, with the tagline, "If you're tired of that other wrestling..." Dave is flabbergasted that TNA brought Jackie Fargo in for the debut shows (in Huntsville, where he wasn't really a big name) but didn't use him at all in Nashville this week, since he's the biggest drawing star in the city's history. Vince Russo and Disco Inferno were backstage at the show. TNA's new backstage interviewer Goldylocks was in the Los Angeles airport during the shooting there last week that left 2 people dead and several others injured. She was even interviewed by the local news about it.
  • More fun political games in WWE. Paul Heyman and Pat Patterson came up with an angle to continue John Cena's momentum following his debut match with Kurt Angle, in which Cena would slap Vince McMahon in the face and then have a match with Jericho in which he would almost win and Jericho would have to cheat to get the pin. You know, make him look strong in defeat kinda thing, same as the Angle match. Well, Triple H apparently went to Vince and convinced him to nix the angle, saying nobody should be laying hands on Vince right now since they're building to Hogan vs. Vince at Summerslam. This turned into a major issue backstage because most of the locker room doesn't like the "NWO group" (basically, Nash, X-Pac, Shawn Michaels, and Triple H, even though he's not part of the group on TV). The usual Kliq stuff. Some of the wrestlers said that everyone can see that Cena has major star potential and they feel like Triple H cutting him off at the knees like this is more about protecting his own spot. They compromised and had Cena slap Jericho instead (Dave says it was a hell of a slap, and on his podcast, Bruce Prichard has told this story. Apparently Jericho insisted that Cena really lay in the slap to make it look good. And so Cena damn near killed him). Patterson in particular was furious that his idea got scrapped and told everyone who would listen about it, feeling the original angle would have gotten people talking about Cena (something they haven't been able to do with any of the other news guys) and felt the compromise angle didn't really have the same effect. Dave notes there's been a lot of resentment towards Nash and Michaels because they're getting some of the biggest pushes in the company right now despite not working full-time like everyone else. And Triple H is going to always be a target of it because of his real-life relationship with Stephanie McMahon. And, of course, X-Pac is basically protected by all his friends and has gotten out of doing multiple jobs in recent weeks when Nash or Michaels complained on his behalf. For what it's worth though, Hulk Hogan is said to be the total opposite, doing exactly what is asked of him and working as hard as he's capable of doing, has had no problem doing jobs or putting anyone over, and is pretty much avoiding all this Kliq drama. So at least one of these guys is redeeming their reputation here a little (just don't turn any hidden cameras on when he's having a conversation).
  • Chris Jericho has agreed to a new WWE deal, but hasn't yet signed the contract and is actually working without one at the moment. His previous deal expired a week or two ago and he's been hammering out details with WWE ever since. With declining business and no real competition to use as leverage, Jericho's negotiating power was obviously not great. But he is one of the company's key guys and word is Jericho considers the offer "fair, under the circumstances." So probably not as good as he was hoping, but that's what happens when you work for a monopoly.
  • Notes from Raw: "one of those nights best left forgotten," Dave says, as WWE's 2002 continues to suck. Booker T cut a promo challenging the NWO, but Eddie Guerrero answered the challenge instead, "I guess since they could get him to do a job on TV without complaining," Dave quips. And indeed, Booker won. Chris Benoit was embroiled in the beginnings of an angle with Austin and Flair, but when Austin left, everything got changed, and now Benoit is feuding with Bubba Ray Dudley, which is quite the demotion. Shawn Michaels cut a promo talking about the Kliq days, full of insider references that were lost on most of the crowd and it was so quiet that you could even hear one heckler yell, "Get to the point!" Dave doesn't understand why they're fondly reminiscing about a time that was by far the darkest, lowest period in the last 30 years of the business, but whatever. William Regal lost to Jeff Hardy, leading Dave to wonder whatever happened to the Regal/Molly Holly storyline that has seemingly been dropped with no explanation. And, of course, the Kevin Nash injury to end the show.
  • Oh yeah....and then there's this. Raw also featured a match with Trish Stratus & Bradshaw vs. Chris Nowinski & Jackie Gayda, which Dave calls "the longest 3:14 in pro wrestling history." Basically every spot that Gayda and Stratus did was completely blown, some so badly that Dave can't even figure out what they were trying to do. Nowinski and Bradshaw brawled into the crowd. "I think they were running out as fast as they could to preserve whatever reputation they have left." Jim Ross on commentary used the dreaded "bowling shoe ugly" phrase which is JR Code for "holy shit this is a bad match." The ending was completely botched but this time, Gayda at least had the sense to realize that they botched the finish so bad that she probably shouldn't eat a pin from it, so she tried to kick out instead. But Trish and the referee didn't get the memo and so the ref counted the 3 anyway, which made the whole thing look even worse. Crowd booed this like crazy and Dave says it was clear to everybody that Gayda has no business on Raw yet, she's still waaaaaaay too green (If you haven't seen it, this match is legendarily bad and is widely known simply as "That Jackie Gayda Match."
WATCH: That Jackie Gayda match
  • Notes from Smackdown: on the complete opposite end of the spectrum, this was a great show. Lillian Garcia singing "America the Beautiful" was interrupted by Team Canada, who got the most heel heat Dave has seen anywhere in wrestling in a long time. They're trying to redo the 1997 Hart Foundation/Canada angle, except this time, it's Christian, Test, and Lance Storm. Whether it will be successful or not depends on who the babyface is. In 1997, it was Steve Austin. If they pick Rikishi or somebody here in 2002, it's not gonna get over near as big. Batista working tag matches is the best thing for him, because he's looking a lot better lately while being able to hide his weaknesses. The Cena/Jericho angle was good (though probably not as good as the original idea would have been). During the Billy and Chuck segment, Chuck had a line about being tired from walking all day on Sunday. The joke wasn't explained, so if you didn't get it: that recent Sunday was the day of a lot of major national gay pride parades in major cities around the country. And Hogan and Edge won the tag titles in a fun match that the crowd was nuclear hot for.
WATCH: Edge & Hogan win the WWE tag team titles
  • Chris Benoit didn't do any actual matches in developmental before his return, he was just there training and taking bumps, so the matches he's been doing on TV the last week or two really were his first actual matches since the neck surgery. Benoit is said to be in less pain than he expected to be and is hopeful to get back to his old self.
  • Dave saw a recent picture of Rey Mysterio and he's worried. Mysterio has bulked up waaaaay too much for his frame. Dave compares him to The Patriot, another masked wrestler who's career was pretty much ended due to repeated muscle tears from being too steroided up. With Mysterio's size, there's zero reason or advantage to him being so muscular and it's only going to increase his risk of getting injured, especially when he starts working that 200-dates-per-year WWE schedule (yeah, this proved to be pretty accurate. Despite the success he had during that time, the next decade or so of Mysterio's career is pretty much injury after injury after injury).
  • Latest on Goldberg is that he has no plans to do anything in wrestling until later this year, if at all. Dave thinks that's smart, since WWE business looks like it's going to keep plummeting, at which time they'll be even more desperate for him to come in. Dave thinks Goldberg could probably command a pretty large offer to come in around the beginning of 2003 and build to a big Wrestlemania match (close, but not quite what happens).
  • Various WWE notes: Triple H has been out of action since King of the Ring after getting elbow surgery. He's been back in Birmingham again, doing 24/7 rehab. Stephanie McMahon hasn't been working in the WWE offices for the last few weeks because she's been with him. Stacy Keibler asked for time off because she's burned out and was replaced with Dawn Marie for all her scheduled bra and panties matches on house shows this week.
  • During the Sunday Night Heat/Raw tapings, someone held up a sign that said "Big Show is not over" when Big Show was out during Heat. Show saw the sign, flipped the guy off, and pointed it out to security. They tried to get the sign but I guess the guy holding it ran away and actually escaped them. Later during the night, when Big Show was out again (this time on Raw), the sign got held up again. Show once again saw it, once again pointed it out to security, and this time, they jumped the rail and caught the guy and took his sign. Imagine being that sensitive.
NEXT WEDNESDAY: Eric Bischoff debuts in WWE, X-Pac suspended, more on Russo in TNA, and more...

2020.07.28 02:02 misses_tumblr The vast majority of 'science' on trans people is garbage: a literature review

I've long had this feeling that 'scientists' were not on our side, even if they say they are. This first occurred to me when they would come to arrasktg and ask the most stupid inane questions and act as the paragons of lgbt acceptance. And if I dared to ask how their 'research' helped actual trans people I was chastised. I put those words in scare quotes because they make a mockery of the scientific method and empiricism. If someone did what I'm about to describe on a chemistry research journal they would be laughed out of the room. This isn't just a minority of trash papers, it's the majority.
I'm going to systematically analyze the literature. I'm going to do that by searching pubmed for articles that contain "transgender" in the title, published in 2019 (it takes some time for the articles to appear on sci-hub) sorted by date, so there isn't any selection bias in the articles.
Article 1: Is Research on Transgender Children What It Seems? Comments on Recent Research on Transgender Children with High Levels of Parental Support by Walter R Schumm and Duane W Crawford.
The first author is a professional homophobe. He authored a book claiming that gay people only want to get married so they can cheat on their partners. He says that based on interpreting gay people saying they want relationship stability as them wanting to cheat. This is a recurring theme with this guy, he's basically going to make the most spurious interpretations in the way that suits him best. He's also going to demand rigor of claims he opposes he does not provide for the claims he makes. The second author hasn't been the main author of any studies since 2009, when he authored "The Influence of Love, Equity, andAlternatives on Commitmentin Romantic Relationships" with two other. In this study he concludes " commitment was moderately associated with love, equity, and alternatives;". He co-authored many similar useless drivel studies. This is not an ad-hominem attack, it's an assessment of conflicts of interest. If academic homophobia ended tomorrow mr Schumm would be out of a job, and probably persona non-grata. His job, which he needed at least 7 year of education to get but probably over 10, depends on the perpetuation of academic bigotry and the writing is on the wall. Another conflict of interest is the fact that the study was sponsoded by the "alliance defending freedom", an american conservative thinktank.
The study is basically going to reinterpret the data from a famous study saying trans kids who have supportive parents have the same levels of anxiety and depression as "nontransgender" children (that's a good search term to find transphobic studies). This is the raw data, it basically says that when the children answered questionnaires on anxiety and depression they had the same scores, but when they asked the parents about whether their children have anxiety and depression the parents of trans kids said their children had more. The authors didn't consider that the parents' assessment could be less than completely objective. We all know that all cis people start drooling about a rugby playing manly cishet son the moment they see a penis on the ultrasound. Then they throw a huge tantrum when the kid says they want to transition, and some of them become "supportive" but the manly heterosexual rugby man fantasy never really goes away, therefore they project their own anxiety on the kids. The authors then basically concludes that transitioning doesn't work " This hypothesizes that even if it is assumed that the transgender children express a desire to transition and receive support for doing so, perhaps that transitioning experience is not as satisfying to them as they might have expected, leaving some of the transgender children with anxiety". They also include some typically cis-navel-gazing "Our thought is that many cis-gender boys have a hard time learning what it means to be a man, when they have the biological advantage of being natal males; how much more challenging would it be for a natal girl to figure out howto be a man, without the advantage of being a natal male?". I think it's abundantly clear from that last quote that they never actually talked to any trans people. They're just torturing the statistics for the money conservative christians pay for this shit.
Article 2: Chlamydia trachomatis Infection of the Neovagina in Transgender Women by Asa E. Radix, Alexander B. Harris, Uri Belkind, Jess Ting, and Zil G. Goldstein.
This is a very good article. I emphatically approve, as it is a preliminary but important step in understanding the manifestations of STIs in post-op trans women. It opens way for more research that actually improves people's lives.
Article 3: Breast augmentation in male-to-female transgender patients:Technicalconsiderationsandoutcomes by Travis J. Millera, Stelios C. Wilson, Jonathan P. Massiec, Shane D. Morrison, Thomas Satter White.
A meh study. It has lots of statistics about breast augmentation, but no control group comparing to breast augmentation in cis women, which makes it kind of pointless.
Article 4: Providing primary care to transgender patients by Catherine Frances Casey.
More cis-navel-gazing. Provides no new or useful or usefully compile information. This is basically a cis woman bragging that she accepts the trans. Completely useless.
Article 5: Lesbians - gays - bisexuals - transgender (LGBT) and healthcare by Alessandrin A and Bouchard JP.
This is in French, so I'm skipping but it doesn't look very good from the abstract.
Article 6: Transmitted, Pre-Treatment, and Acquired Antiretroviral Drug Resistance among Men who have Sex with Men and Transgender Women Living with HIV in Nigeria by Trevor A. Crowell, Gustavo H. Kijak, Eric Sanders-Buell, et al.
This study has nothing to do with trans women, or gay men for that matter. It's an interesting study about HIV drug resistance, but there's literally nothing about it that makes it about lgbt people. I see this as an attempt to paint lgbt people as dirty and HIV infected. This shit is why I can't do to the doctor without them demanding I take an HIV test, even though I'm nearly celibate.
Article 7: A New Era of Care for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Community by Lauren Meshkov Bonati, Jared Jagdeo.
This is article 4 again.
Article 8: Incorporating Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Training into a Residency Program by Joseph W. Fakhoury and Steven Daveluy.
This is the article 4 pattern again, but mildly more useful. They also say "providers should ask gender identity and obtain a sexual history, which includes gender or genders of sexual partners" unqualified. In a dermatology consult??? What are you gonna do with that information? Again this is the whole wooo lgbt people are dirty and have hiv and you should pester them about that in every opportunity.
Article 9: Preexposure Prophylaxis for Human Immunodeficiency Virus Infection for Men Who Have Sex with Men and Transgender Persons:: What Dermatologists Need to Know. by Katz KA, Park AJ, Marcus JL.
Article 6 pattern all over again. This is an article about an infectious disease, it has nothing specifically to do with gay men or trans people. Guess what? Most people who have HIV are cishet, and yet this article is associating it with us all over again.
Article 10: Acne and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, or Transgender Teenager by Ragmanauskaite L, Kahn B, Ly B, Yeung H.
This study actually has a reason for talking about trans people, so in this case it's the lesbian, gay and bisexual people who are thrown in unnecessarily. They say "Chest binding involves the use of ace bandages orelastic bands to tightly bind breasts in order toachieve a more masculine contour." and I'm a person who pads my chest, not binds it, but don't most trans men use binders?? I read somewhere that using bandages was dangerous. I would thank you if someone can help me with this in the comments. Otherwise it's a fairly good article.
Article 11: Update on Medical Education, Insurance Coverage, and Health Care Policy for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, Intersexual, and Asexual Patients by Tien Viet Nguyen.
Article 4 pattern all over again. Says there needs to be more education about lgbt people but does nothing about it.
**Article 12: The Patient's Perspective: Reorienting Dermatologic Care for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and QueeQuestioning Patients. by Ruoss AV, Short WR, Kovarik CL.
Article 4 pattern. Verbose even among its peers, very navel-gaze-y. Doesn't help anyone.
Article 13: Evaluating the perceptions of the transgender and non-binary communities of pelvic radiotherapy side effect information booklets by H Burton, P Pilkington , P Bridge.
This is an alright discussion on a booklet with information on radiotherapy for some types of cancer. Basically the booklets assumed the patients were cishet and they conclude that's a bad thing. Nothing exactly groundbreaking.
Article 14: A qualitative study of transgender individuals' experiences of healthcare including radiology by M J Floyd, O Martin, K J Eckloff.
Article 4 pattern again. I'm getting really tired of it.
Article 15: Promoting Affirmative Transgender Health Care Practice Within Hospitals:An IPE Standardized Patient Simulation for Graduate Health Care Learners by McCave EL, Aptaker D, Hartmann KD, Zucconi R.
I really like this one. This is basically what article 4 should have been. The only problem with it is that they have a video with a trans man being played by a cis woman. Basically the video depicts him receiving poor healthcare and then they discuss about it. They don't just say healthcare workers should treat trans people well, they actually go ahead and do something about it.

2020.07.18 13:42 ivebeenwrittenoff 200 blog posts! Switching to Fridays. Giving thanks.

A little over a year ago, I released my first blog post of The Jesse Flood Alternative and planned for it to be a memoir style blog (https://thejessefloodalternative.home.blog/2019/07/11/the-jfa-blog-post-2/). The year after I got out of the military, I came across the confessions of Billy Corgan; another memoir style blog (https://billycorgan.livejournal.com/tag/confessions). Although I enjoyed it at the time and still reread some stories (5 YEARS being my favorite. You should read it too), I felt it lacking because it wasn't lineal. So I decided to publish a memoir style blog in order, one you could read from blog post 2, turn the page with the black arrows at the bottom of every screen to blog post 3 and so forth until you reached (as of yesterday) blog post 200! Also today, I am publishing every week on Friday, so subscribe for notifications of the next blog post. When I began, I would publish as frequently as I could get to a library. But after doing this for so long, I began a publishing schedule of every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It always picked up where the previous post left off and the arrows were always there to let you go back if you missed the last post. As of today, I have 61 subscribers and in giving thanks I'd like to acknowlege them here: freeplrcelebritynews, DailyKeto4U.com, cooltrenddsbusinessconsultations, sharonmastel66, PureFitness Keto, mamunur09, Anketsu, andreasroggia,weewritinglassie, Harman Kaur, attractionteacher, adorapc3, Vladi The Cook, neogeek1992, womaves, myquotedb, health tips.usa, Mr. Gadget Heisenberg, 1800MMAPlanet®, Jay Amefia, I Can Be Your Filipino Virtual Assistant, Patricia, lorecomme, pdefidelibus, WorkAtHomeGroup, homegardenadmin, AllAboutGQ, WUPPLES®, GUITAR BRAT®, Mark Gannon (Mark from Oz)!, passive64, beeble07yahoocom,MOARA DE VANT, JakeBreh Beats, Benjamin Faison, JoeTheriault, Jefferson K. Perez, Barbara Gannon - Cancer Is NOT A Death Sentence!, Sonam Tsering, Patrick Lynn, Lucid Being, Cosmina, anthonypaulfinance, shortlifeentertainment, Wammyspeaks, mixtapemaster, sdonnelly19, norbs3000, lovebeautyapex, Beauty Box Fashion, deltadeathstorm, cana16, Martin Schwartz, OffroadSociety.com, alternativemedicinearticles, Make Money Online, and leistenc. In just over a year and 200 blog posts, I have received 1,567 page views. As for monetization, if you see an ad on one of my pages, that's from the good people at Wordpress. Wordpress gets the revenue from ads to pay for servers and I get the free content space for you, my readers. The only way that I can earn revenue is from people streaming my songs, with a link provided at the bottom of every blog page. To date, I have received only 70 listeners, which is a shame because I've linked every book, audio book and audio recording within these blog pages (please support this blog by listening to at least 1 of my songs on a regular basis). And my header is a picture of me and my guitar. I also have to thank reddit blogs for letting me announce the next blog weekly. I would say though, that it's harder for readers to find you, when people start blogs and don't update them. For that reason, there are a lot of sites out there and you get lost in the shuffle when there's so many other things competing for the attention of content seekers. That's why I tell anyone starting a blog, have at least 52 pieces of content ready to go that you can schedule over the next year before beginning a blog. That way, you have time to create new content for your site over that year and until you've created those 52 pieces and made your site, it makes it easier for established blogs to be found. Here's to 200!

  • Bret Hart was seriously injured in a bicycle accident in Calgary last week. As of press time, Dave has very little info. Hart was thrown off the bike and flipped over the handlebars going at a high speed and landed on his back and hit the back of his head. Over the next couple of days, he's undergone a number of tests due to issues he's had since the accident. Bret was forced to retire 2 years ago after he suffered a serious concussion during the Starrcade 99 match with Goldberg and it's believed the fall may have aggravated the issues he's had since then. Hart is expected to be hospitalized for at least a week and has little movement on the left side of his body and can't see out of his right eye. He's also suffering severe back pain, though x-rays and scans haven't shown any physical damage to his back. That's all Dave knows right now. (Much more on this next week, obviously).
  • After a year of questionable decision-making, Vince McMahon made his most questionable decision yet when he announced the surprise re-hiring of Vince Russo. It's a shocking decision for lots of obvious reasons, not the least of which is most of the wrestlers either outright don't like him or at the very least, don't respect him. And many front office employees feel even more strongly about him. Not even Stephanie McMahon, who is the head of creative, knew Russo was coming back and she was just as blindsided by the news as everyone else. It's believed the deal has been in the works for a few weeks. Russo had owned a CD store in Marietta, GA but he sold the store recently. He also stopped submitting ideas to the Jarretts for TNA a couple of weeks ago. There's also the fact that Russo's lawsuit against Hulk Hogan over the Bash at the Beach 2000 incident is still pending and now they're in the same company again, although Dave suspects the legal issues must be wrapped up for Russo to take the job (Turner was still paying his legal fees so long as he didn't work for any other wrestling company, which is why everyone was denying his involvement with TNA). Another rumor going around is that Russo is planning to write a tell-all book about his time in WWF and when word about that got out, the company rehired him in an effort to squash the book. Dave thinks that might be believable if Russo was just hired and stuck in a closet somewhere. But he was brought back in a key position in the creative department, which means that likely wasn't the reason (or not a big part of it). Most likely, it's exactly what it appears on the surface: Vince McMahon is getting desperate and he's going back to what worked in the past.
  • When word got out about Russo's hiring, needless to say, everyone was shocked and, as you'd expect, it was an overwhelmingly negative reaction. The plan for Russo on day one was for him to be in control of the creative team, answering only to Stephanie McMahon. The next day, those plans changed after McMahon, Russo, Stephanie, and the rest of the writing team had a big meeting. There's been multiple stories about what happened during the meeting. One version of the story is that Russo's ideas were so bad that he pretty much buried himself with everyone immediately. Another version is that Stephanie pretty much buried all his ideas and shut him down. And yet another version is that Russo obviously hadn't kept up with the product and was unfamiliar and out of touch with many of the characters and ongoing storylines, and that soured Vince McMahon on him. Regardless, the result was the same: the very next day, Russo was no longer part of the creative team. Word is he has already been sent home and will be brought back if/when they need ideas, as sort of a consultant on retainer. Officially, his role now is to critique the TV shows and report back to Vince McMahon what he thinks. So he's basically paid to be a critic and tell McMahon how he would do it better. Anyway, that's the story for now. Dave runs down Russo's history in the business, how he came into power in WWF, jumping ship to WCW with no notice, where he proceeded to help kill the company and all the drama that happened there (can't wait for that one Vince Russo superfan that always accuses me of lying about him to chime in on this one).
  • For the record, one of Russo's big ideas for TNA's debut was taking the Shane Twins and dressing them up as giant penises and calling them the Big Johnsons. Thankfully, when the show aired, the announcers downplayed the "penis" aspect of it a lot, leading Russo to tell friends that the idea flopped because the commentators didn't sell it hard enough. Just in case you're wondering what Vince Russo is bringing to the table in 2002.
  • WWE's King of the Ring is in the books. For the first time since Wrestlemania, it was a legit sellout on PPV. And sucks for them because this was a pretty blah show. Undertaker retained the WWE title over Triple H in a bad match that was hampered because Undertaker is banged up in general and Triple H came into the match with an elbow injury. 2 days after the show, he underwent elbow surgery to remove bone chips, one of which was embedded in cartilage and had caused his arm to lock up. He was nowhere near 100% during the match, but if he had been, Dave suspects they probably would have put the belt back on him. But for now, they stuck with Undertaker. They did a post match angle to set up Rock vs. Undertaker vs. Triple H at Vengeance, assuming Triple H is ready by then (he was not).
  • The biggest story of the PPV, in Dave's opinion anyway, is the Kurt Angle/Hulk Hogan match, in which Angle beat Hogan clean as a sheet by submission. Dave gives Hogan credit: he didn't treat this like Kidman. Hogan put Angle over as strong as he possibly could. Dave believes it's the first time in Hogan's entire career that he lost via submission as a babyface. He did have a few submission losses as a heel (once to Inoki in NJPW in 1981 and a handful in WCW during the NWO era) but that's it. If he had any as a babyface, it would have been before 1979, before he was a national name. Whether this ultimately springboards Angle into a certified top guy that fans take seriously remains to be seen, but Hogan did everything he could. Probably didn't help that, as soon as the match was over, Angle put his goofy wig back on, at a moment that should have been used to turn him into a serious threat. But regardless, nobody can fault Hogan here if it doesn't get over.
  • Other notes from the PPV: Jericho vs. RVD in the opening match was easily the best match on the show. Lesnar got loud "Goldberg" chants and Dave thinks he sold way too much for Test, especially since the rumor is Lesnar is being groomed for a Summerslam main event with Rock. Nidia in her hillbilly gimmick with Jamie Noble was great and Dave thinks they might have something with Nidia and this gimmick. Ric Flair vs. Eddie Guerrero was.....not what you'd think. Dave has seen Flair drag talentless hacks to great matches for 20 years but somehow, Flair vs. Guerrero was a drag and should have been better than it was considering the two men involved. Two all-time greats just had a misfire somehow. Molly won the women's title from Trish and Dave thinks this whole storyline where they claim Molly is fat is insulting to probably every single female viewer they have and a lot of the males too. A backstage segment with Rock, Goldust, and Booker T was the most entertaining thing on the show. Lesnar won the King of the Ring tournament by beating RVD in a nothing match. And of course, the main event, which was an overbooked mess with two guys who probably didn't have any business wrestling that night anyway.
WATCH: Goldust/Booker T/Rock backstage segment at WWE King of the Ring 2002
  • NWA-TNA's debut show is in the books! Actually, so is their second show because it was a double-taping. And buckle in because we have a metric fuck-ton of TNA news to cover. Overall, it was a well-received debut. A lot of the young wrestlers were hungry and some of the old guys worked like they had something to prove. Guys like Konnan and Buff Bagwell looked the best they have in years and many of the people who worked the show said this felt like the real deal (many of those same people had worked the recent WWA shows and saw those as paid vacations, nobody took it seriously). Scott Hall, said to be the highest paid wrestler in the company ($3,500 per week) didn't do anything special but he got by far the biggest reaction and, according to all accounts, was sober and professional. There were about 3,000 fans in the building, but only 400-500 were paid. More than 10,000 freebies were given away around Birmingham the week of the show, but the crowd they got was actually a good, active audience, so it worked. Mike Tenay on commentary was great and full of knowledge, though Ed Ferrara playing heel announcer was useless. Don West was enthusiastic as hell, but knew nothing about the product. Regardless, he knows how to work a camera and he took charge of the commentary booth and Dave thinks he did fine in the role and will only get better. Ricky Steamboat was there, giving an emotional interview and putting over the NWA title. Ken Shamrock won the gauntlet battle royal (basically the same thing as a Royal Rumble match) to win the title, beating Malice (former WCW wrestler The Wall) in the final match after they were the last 2 left in the battle royal. There's been talk of doing a Shamrock vs. Don Frye match to try to catch some of that crossover UFC/PRIDE audience, but Dave is doubtful it'll be a draw here like it is in Japan.
  • What else? Country music star Toby Keith did a series of angles with Jeff Jarrett and Keith was by far the biggest star to the live fans. Keith got involved in the battle royal and eliminated Jarrett. NASCAR drivers Hermie Sadler and Sterling Martin got involved in a racial angle with K-Krush (R-Truth) using a bunch of "your kind" and "my kind" talk and Dave thinks that was pretty pathetic. The company was hoping all this celebrity involvement would get them some mainstream publicity but it got practically none. They brought in a bunch of women, most of whom were total unknowns except for ECW's Francine, Electra, and former WCW valet Daffney under the name Shannon, and their battle royal on the second show was said to be awful. The whole event definitely had a southern/regional feel to it. The opening match of Jerry Lynn, AJ Styles, and Low-Ki vs. Jorge Estra, Sonny Siaki, and Jimmy Yang was the show-stealer and was better than most of the matches in WWE this year.
  • Now the bad news: TNA was under the impression they had Dish Network cleared to air their show, but no dice. They don't have Cablevision in the U.S. either. For a company that needs to draw 50,000 buys a week to break even without a corporate sponsor, that's extremely bad news. They're also losing their Canadian PPV after the response to the debut show was said to be lackluster. At press time, InDemand has allegedly told TNA that their debut show did 80,000 buys but preliminary numbers are always drastically higher than the final result, so it'll almost certainly be less than that (for example, InDemand's number for WWA's first PPV was originally 40,000 but later got revised to 15,000). In WWE, they don't take any PPV numbers seriously at first because the thought is any numbers you hear within the first 2 months of the show are always wrong, the final tallies take time to come in. Regardless, even if this show did well, the more important question is how will they be doing in 4-5 weeks when the new has worn off?
  • Despite TNA claiming they aren't even interested in TV and are 100% committed to running exclusively on PPV, that's obviously not true. They have already struck syndication deals in Nashville and Chattanooga and are actively working to get a national television deal. The problem is that, as you can tell by looking at WWE ratings over the last year, the business is in a sharp decline, meaning the TV industry isn't chomping at the bit to give TV deals to some new startup nobody company. But anyone who understands the industry knows they have no chance of surviving on weekly PPV alone so getting on TV sooner than later is going to be essential to TNA's survival. The local syndicated deals they struck will mostly be hype shows with interviews and highlights designed to drive viewers to buy the weekly PPVs. Dave lists, like, 10 different promotions that have folded over the years in part due to the costs of paying for television.
  • Tons of TNA news in this issue which brings us to the debut "Random TNA News & Notes" section! Here we go: Bert Prentice will be working with the company and will no longer be running his own weekly shows in Nashville. There will be a one-night tournament at the next show to crown NWA tag team champions. Fun fact, those belts are currently held by The Shane Twins, who now wrestle in TNA as The Johnsons, doing the aforementioned masked penis gimmick. They'll be in the tournament even though they were already the champs in their previous gimmick. But the titles are being vacated and they will crown new ones.
  • We ain't done with TNA news. The dark match of the show featured a 450 pound dude named Cheex who is basically ripping off Rikishi's gimmick of doing things with his big ol' ass. And in case the ass gimmick and the "Cheex" name wasn't clear enough, he's being managed by a woman named Brown Eye Girl. So....yeah. If this ain't Vince Russo, I'll eat my shoe. Anyway, during the dark match, because Cheex is so big, the ring broke. As the show was going on the air live, the ring crew was frantically struggling to fix the ring, which is why it felt like they were stalling so much for the first 15 minutes. Because they were. The ring breaking also caused them to not be able to do the second dark match they had planned. Both matches were being taped to air on next week's show.
  • Actual notes from TNA's debut show (I'm gonna divide this into multiple paragraphs because there's a lot): it opened with some pyro, which is meant to make them look major league, but everyone else always looks minor league compared to WWE's huge pyro show every week and this was no exception. No graphics or details on any of the wrestlers, which is a mistake considering so many of them are complete unknowns to most fans. Started with a bunch of legends coming out to put over the NWA title, including Ricky Steamboat cutting one of the best promos of the year in any promotion and Dave thinks they need to hire Steamboat and put him in an on-air role as a commissioner or something ASAP. Jeff Jarrett cut a promo saying it was stupid to crown a new champion in a battle royal. Way to bury your own main event 10 minutes into your debut show, especially since most people also agree that it's a pretty dumb way to do it. But they still did. Then Ken Shamrock and Scott Hall came out and they both cut promos and they also shat on the battle royal idea, leading Dave to worry already that this company hasn't learned anything from WCW's mistakes. As mentioned earlier, the opening match easily stole the show. Next up was a little person match, with the jobber actually being referred to as "an enhancement midget." The Shane Twins did the penis gimmick, but as mentioned, it was severely played down from the original idea as conceived by Russo.
  • More notes from the show: They brought out a bunch of women for a big segment and Dave, who spends his entire life watching wrestling, didn't know half of them. And even if he did, it wouldn't matter because there were no graphics to name any of them and even if there had been, the cameras were often showing the wrong woman when a name was announced. Anyway, among them were Francince from ECW (who Dave is worried about because she looked sickly thin), Shannon (formerly Daffney in WCW), Alexis Laree (better known years later as Mickie James), Elektra from ECW, Taylor Vaugn (formerly Barbara Bush in WWF), Erin (who was a finalist on Tough Enough season 1 but got booted from the show before production started because other contestants saw her out on a date with one of the judges and they complained and got her kicked off), and some others. At least one of the no-name chicks was a stripper they hired specifically for this show because they needed one more woman to make 10. Anyway, this all led to the expected brawl with Elektra getting her shirt ripped off to show her bra. It wasn't even that risque. If you're trying to use sex appeal to draw viewers, the worst thing you can do is be less risque than WWE is on free TV when you have the luxury of PPV (give em a few months and we'll get actual nudity on this show). Alicia Webb, formerly known in WWF as Ryan Shamrock (and who is dating Ken Shamrock in real life) was playing a prostitute collecting money from referee Mark Johnson.
  • Even more notes from the show: the NASCAR guys got a bigger pop than any of the wrestlers. K-Krush came out to confront them about not being real athletes and they did the racial angle. Brian Christopher got involved and funny story there, they were debating whether to use the last name Christopher, or his real last name of Lawler. Nobody told the announcers which it was gonna be so Mike Tenay kept using "Christopher" while Ed Ferrara kept using "Lawler." More WCW-level shit. Toby Keith performed. The gauntlet battle royal to crown the new champion featured Buff Bagwell, Prince Justice (later becomes Abyss), Konnan, Rick Steiner, Scott Hall, Jeff Jarrett, etc. Toby Keith ran in and suplexed Jarrett, causing him to get eliminated because why not? Chris Harris, Vampire Warrior, Steve Corino, and more. And when it got down to the last two, it became a regular match and Shamrock beat Malice to win the title with Steamboat as the special referee.
WATCH: NWA-TNA' s debut PPV (Full Show)
  • So that's the notes from the debut show. Are we done with TNA yet? Not by a long shot. They taped a whole second show, remember?! It hasn't aired yet so Dave hasn't seen it so here's the scarce details. The crowd started filing out after the first show ended and kept leaving as the second one was going, to the point that Jeremy Borash and Bert Prentice had to get on the mic and beg everyone to stay and then moved a bunch of people to the hard camera side so there wouldn't be visible empty seats all over the place. Lenny Lane and former WCW star Kwee-Wee were put together as a gay tag team called Rainbow Express, managed by Joel Gertner, and kissed each other instead of tagging each other to swap in and out during the match, which got a lot of heat because Alabama. A 9-woman battle royal (guess they didn't let the hired stripper actually work) to crown Miss TNA resulted in a bunch of women getting stripped half naked. They did a 4-way elimination match to crown the X-Division champion which was won by AJ Syles in what was said to be easily the best match of either show, with even Harley Race going on record later to say it was one of the best matches he'd ever seen. But by then, there were very few fans left in the building. And that is finally it for TNA news for now. Whew.
  • PRIDE's latest show is in the books and once again featured pro wrestlers drawing the crowd. NOAH's Yoshihiro Takayama replaced Mark Coleman in the main event (out due to injury) against Don Frye, leading to last minute interest from wrestling fans that packed the house. Frye defeated Takayama in what many are calling the best fight in the history of PRIDE. Takayama has had 3 fights in PRIDE and has lost all 3 of them, but all 3 of them were also show-stealing outright wars that, despite losing, has grown Takayama into an even bigger star. Afterward, Frye hinted at retiring from MMA and returning to NJPW full time. Dave hasn't seen this fight but it was described to him as "something out of Dragonball Z or a comic book" the way they were just throwing bombs at each other, with the crowd going insane (yeah the opening minute or so if this fight is absolute madness, video below). The show also featured Bob Sapp vs. Kiyoshi Tamura, which was a total mismatch. Tamura is a skilled MMA fighter, but Sapp outweighed him by literally almost 200 pounds and the fight was over in 11 seconds, with Sapp basically murdering him. Dave says it's clear they're trying to turn Sapp into a huge unbeatable monster psychopath and it's working. But Dave thinks it's bullshit to put fighters this mismatched against each other in real shoots. It was funny though because after what happened in Sapp's K-1 fight a few weeks ago, they made some new rules like no knees and no kicking a downed opponent, which is fine. But they also announced other rules for the fight, such as no flying sentons or splashes off the top ropes, which have never been done in an MMA fight and is utterly ridiculous (If Cormier doesn't hit Miocic with a Canadian destroyer at UFC 252 next month, what's even the point?). Another NOAH star, Takashi Suguira, lost a split decision with Daniel Gracie and Suguira had several NOAH wrestlers at ringside cheering him on. And of course, Antonio Inoki came out at intermission and did his catchphrase.
WATCH: Yoshihiro Takayama vs. Don Frye - PRIDE
  • UFC made its TV debut with a half-hour segment on Fox Sports Net's "Best Damn Sports Show Period" which featured a full Robbie Lawler vs. Steve Berger bout, as well as highlights of other fights. "Fear Factor" host Joe Rogan did commentary with Mike Goldberg and Jeff Osbourne. They aired several warnings during the show, but the violence ended up being far less brutal than most average boxing matches. The show drew a strong crowd and there's talk that this may become a regular thing on the network. They also hyped the planned Tito Ortiz vs. Ken Shamrock fight for later this year and Dave thinks TNA would be wise to get the NWA title off Shamrock before the fight, because he's going into it as the underdog. Plus, Shamrock would likely not want to risk injury or spend time flying to Nashville every week during the last few weeks of training. Wouldn't be a good look for TNA if Shamrock goes to the octagon with the NWA title belt and gets demolished by Ortiz. Also on the show, Chuck Liddell defeated Vitor Belfort in a war that catapulted Liddell into title contention and he'll likely face the winner of Shamrock/Ortiz sometime down the road.
  • Dave got his hands on a copy of Shaun Assael's new book "Sex, Lies, and Headlocks: The Real Story of Vince McMahon and the World Wrestling Federation" even though it hasn't been released yet. Review time! The original concept for the book was to chronicle the Monday Night Wars, but just as the book was being finished, the whole business changed and since Vince became the lone survivor, the book was changed to focus on him and the WWF primarily. The book is fair and accurate for the most part. Assael didn't run from any of the controversial stories, but he also didn't sensationalize things to make them seem bigger than they were. If you're a long-time Observer reader, you already know all this stuff and could probably point out details or inconsistencies in the story, but to the average fan who hasn't been following all the behind-the-scenes stuff for the last 20 years, it's sure to be an eye-opener. Anyway, Dave recaps the book in detail, mostly just correcting things that the author got wrong but also acknowledging that this is an early review copy and some of these mistakes will be corrected before it's published and released. Otherwise, he just pokes holes in various myths and stories that are covered. The Observer was credited in the book for being one of the author's sources, specifically in regards to Dave's coverage of the steroid trial (yeah, if you haven't read it, go back and check those out. Dave actually attended the trial and his recap of it is one of the most must-read issues of the Observer in its entire history). The book pretty much ends at the death of WCW, though it does note that business has declined significantly since then. Overall, Dave says it's by far the best book on the real modern history of professional wrestling that he's ever read and is a must-read for any wrestling fan. But it's also too short (288 pages) to really get into all the detail needed to tell so many of these stories. But for what it is, best book of its type that Dave's ever read.

  • In AAA in Mexico, there's a new guy named Canibal who's gimmick is pulling his opponent's trunks down and biting them on the ass. It's too late. You already read the sentence. You can't un-know that now.
  • AJPW stars Kaz Hayashi and Kendo Kashin were supposed to be working some shows for AAA at the moment. Fun story, when they arrived in Mexico, nobody from AAA was there to meet them at the airport and nobody they called from the AAA office would answer the phone, so they basically found themselves stranded in Mexico with no idea what to do and unable to speak the language. Dave says the exact same thing happened to Great Sasuke several years ago when he went to Mexico. Anyway, last Dave heard, Hayashi and Kashin were trying to get themselves booked on some indie shows in Mexico so they can get some pictures of them working there to take back to the magazines in Japan (which was the whole reason for their trip) so they're just looking to work one or two shows and then go back home. They can't work for CMLL because that promotion has a business relationship with NJPW.
  • Last month, AAA held its 10th annual Triplemania show in Los Angeles. Here's the problem though: it was an utter flop, with embarrassing attendance and almost nobody even realizing it happened. So AAA has decided to just pretend it didn't happen and has now scheduled Triplemania X again, this time in Mexico (maybe WWE should do that next year. Since Wrestlemania was pretty much just in an empty warehouse this year, they shouldn't even acknowledge it. Just redo Wrestlemania 36 again next year and pretend it's the first time).
  • Remember the story a couple months ago about how Invader 1 (the guy who murdered Bruiser Brody) left the WWC promotion? Well, he was scheduled to return this week as a special referee for a Carlos Colon match but it ended up not happening. He said he wanted his return to be a surprise, but the story was already out on the internet that he was coming back. For what it's worth, almost none of the wrestling fans in Puerto Rico have internet (I did the research, only 17.5% of the country had internet access in 2002 and you gotta figure only a fraction of those are wrestling fans, so Dave is likely correct here) so it still would have been a surprise to probably 99% of them. But either way, Invader 1 pulled out of the show over it and still isn't back with the promotion.
  • Spanky (Brian Kendrick) won a tournament at an indie show in California to get a shot for the Zero-1/UPW unified title. That's not the important part. How it happened is the original guy who was scheduled to win ended up pulling out of the show at the last minute because his pregnant wife was overdue so he stayed behind to be with her. So they made a call to Spanky, who was in Cincinnati. He immediately packed up his car and was on the road 30 minutes after receiving the call. And didn't stop. He drove 30 hours straight, some 2,200 miles, and made it to the venue literally an hour or so before showtime and did the match. That's freakin' dedication (I think he's talked about this in a shoot interview before. Said he masturbated to stay awake and started vomiting uncontrollably halfway through the drive or something, but still made it. Madness.)
  • AJPW news: there are no truth to the rumors of a WWE/AJPW relationship, which was mentioned last week. Motoko Baba and Tenryu were at WWE's show in Hawaii to take photos for the Japanese magazines to make people think something is up, but there's nothing there. They were just visiting because Johnny Ace got them backstage. Also, the newspapers in Japan have begun reporting that Keiji Muto will take over as AJPW president when Ms. Baba retires, which confirms what Dave has been saying for months.
  • Kenta Kobashi's first match back for NOAH will be this week at Korakuen Hall. He'll be working undercard tag matches so he won't be doing too much. If you recall, he was out for over a year with knee injuries, had one match in February in which he re-injured himself again and has been out ever since.
  • Speaking of Korakuen Hall, NJPW's latest show there only drew 1,200 fans, which means the building was only half full. Just in case you're wondering how NJPW is doing in 2002. Not great.
  • Don Frye did an interview claiming Antonio Inoki is working to put together a match between himself and Mike Tyson. "Nobody is taking that seriously," Dave says.
  • Speaking of Japanese companies trying to latch on to the WWE train and speaking of lyin' ass Inoki: there have been rumors that Inoki is putting together a relationship with WWE. Not true. Inoki claimed recently that he had met with Vince McMahon about using some of WWE's undercard guys in NJPW and of starting his own promotion in the U.S. Dave says the meeting with Vince never happened and, in fact, the two men haven't gotten along or really even spoken at all in nearly 20 years.
  • More on Jesse Ventura's decision not to run for re-election as Minnesota governor. Part of the reason may be that the polls are showing he would likely lose the race. Of course, that's what the polls said last time and he shocked the world. But after 4 years in office, his popularity isn't near what it was back then, when he was the exciting outsider. Now the voters have seen what he brings to the table and they don't seem to like it too much. Ventura was already planning to make the announcement, but then the story about his son hosting parties at the governor's mansion broke, and Ventura made the announcement 2 days earlier than he'd planned. Using the criticism that his son has gotten in the media as his excuse for not running provided Ventura a good "out" but he was already planning not to run long before that story happened and the press conference had been scheduled nearly 2 weeks earlier, so take it with a grain of salt. Most likely, he saw the writing on the wall and knew he was going to lose if he ran again.
  • Notes from the latest Ring of Honor event: it was said to be an incredible show, with guys like Bryan Danielson, Low-Ki, Christopher Daniels, Spanky, Jerry Lynn, AJ Styles, and more all having amazing matches. There was a moment during the show where Scoot Andrews went to hit Christopher Daniels' valet, Lucious. But then he stopped himself and said he'd never hit a woman, but he knew somebody who would. This was a tease to bring out another female wrestler, but the crowd started chanting for Steve Austin. The show drew 450 fans and sold out the building, which is the largest crowd ROH has drawn so far.
  • Famous St. Louis Cardinal announcer Jack Buck passed away a couple weeks ago and Dave notes that Buck actually had some involvement in wrestling back in the day. He used to do radio broadcasting of Sam Muchnick's shows live for KMOX radio in the 1960s and there's even a picture somewhere out there of Giant Baba picking Buck up and holding him like a baby. (I actually just watched the 30 For 30 documentary on the McGwire/Sosa home run race and they talked about Jack Buck in there. Good times. Anyway, someone find that picture because I'm having no luck).
  • Sting is scheduled to make an appearance, but not wrestle, at an indie show Harley Race is putting together this week in St. Louis. This will be Sting's first wrestling-related appearance since WCW folded.
  • In case you're wondering what XPW and Rob Black are up to these days, allow Dave to fill you in. Black is currently doing an angle where he's pretending he had a stroke and he pisses and shits on himself all over TV. They also did a segment where wrestler GQ Money (now a producer for NXT) broke into Black's home and tried to rape his wife until somebody made the save. The next week, they showed Money supposedly raping a girl in the parking lot and leaving her for dead, and the week after, he got sprayed with raw sewage. Now they're building up to a raw sewage match, based on this rape storyline. XPW, folks.
  • Dave has some more notes on Cody Runnels, the son of Dusty Rhodes who was backstage at WWE's show in Atlanta last week. Cody is a sophomore in high school and placed 6th in the state in amateur wrestling the past year. He also plays football. He was described to Dave as having a similar physical look as Randy Orton, "but with a face like Dusty."
  • WWA's scheduled tour of Europe has been officially canceled. The German and Switzerland shows had abysmal ticket sales and pretty much had to be canceled. The show in Ireland had more than 4,000 tickets sold and would have been a success, but even so, that one show alone wasn't going to make enough money to offset the cost of the whole tour.
  • This is actually hilarious. UFC fighter Vitor Belfort and his training partner were in a taxi before the UFC show when a bunch of cops showed up and surrounded the car. Why, you ask? Well the cab driver overheard Belfort and his partner talking about "shooting at the legs" and she got scared, not knowing what they were talking about, and called the police. Seems like they got it all straightened out though.
  • Rock will be working nearly full-time on TV from now until Summerslam, at which point he's leaving for a few months to go film his next movie. He won't be on every Smackdown, but he'll be on most of them.
  • Nothing new on the Goldberg/WWE negotiations. Vince McMahon told Goldberg's agents that he will clear his schedule any time Goldberg wants to have a meeting, but Goldberg doesn't seem particularly interested. The fact that WWE rehired Russo probably won't help matters because Goldberg is one of the many who doesn't like Russo.
  • Shawn Michaels is booked to be in Kevin Nash's corner on upcoming house shows once Nash is cleared to wrestle again. There's still no plans for Shawn to wrestle, but given how depleted the WWE roster is right now, Dave is sure they'll probably start pushing him to sooner than later (Nash ends up getting injured again almost immediately, so I don't think Shawn ever did these house show appearances).

Looks like this is one of those issues where I went over the 40,000 character limit. Hit the comments below for the rest.

Rapid prototyping -- Excerpt from Single Stage to Orbit Politics, Space Technology, and the Quest for Reusable Rocketry by Andrew J Butrica
So I have been thinking and researching on 'rapid prototyping' and old/new space in general. As many here, I have been observing this spectacle presently demonstrated by the world's most popular aerospace company and scratching my head.
This 'move fast and break things' or 'rapid iteration' approach never made sense to me because the general trend in manufacturing during the last 30 years has been to transition to software prototyping/simulations for hardware applications such as cars or airplanes.(some of this cutting of HW R&D expenses contributed to the Boeing quality troubles of today)
For the interested, I stumbled upon this paper - APPLICATION OF RAPID PROTOTYPING IN AEROSPACE INDUSTRY for a short rundown on methods and case studies which also contains the below graph. (I suspect the 'aerospace' is 99% airplanes and jet engines.)
percentage use of Rapid Prototyping world-wide in 2011
It obviously made more sense back in 60ties through 90ties but even back then, this rapid iteration approach seemed more sensible and focused - building scale models for wind tunnels, or trying out manufacturing methods on parts of the assembly etc. These days, when whole jet liners can be assembled in a computer, I can't grasp what SpaceX could possibly 'learn' with these 'prototypes'. Even engine development I suspect, where they work with I believe a very hard to simulate/compute environment, have come a long way and computers give a good approximation of what to expect in the real world. I would be stunned if Aerojet or Energomash need the same amount of engines on average to blow up to 'get it just right' as 30 years ago.
Nevertheless, I got my hands on a copy of Single Stage to Orbit Politics, Space Technology, and the Quest for Reusable Rocketry by Andrew J Butrica. I haven't read it through because it's voluminous but wanted to share some good OC - a passage on the topic of rapid prototyping and some context to it. At first I wanted to do an executive summary style of post but as with good prose happens, I ended up highlighting A LOT of the text, so I just decided to reproduce the sub-chapters in their entirety including Bibliography and Kelly’s Rules (after Lockheed Skunk Works founder, Clarence L. “Kelly” Johnson)) on the very end.
I will be glad for any inputs and remarks we can all learn from.
Enjoy!

Single Stage to Orbit Politics, Space Technology, and the Quest for Reusable Rocketry
part III : The Space Ship eXperimental
chapter seven: The SDIO SSTO Program
p.122 - 144

The Weasel Works
McDonnell Douglas senior management initially had endorsed the firm’s bid for the SSTO program only lukewarmly, but once money appeared available to build the Phase II vehicle, they provided “good support” to put together a proposal.53 In order to undertake the daunting task of designing and building the Delta Clipper in only twenty-four months, the company formed the Rapid Prototyping Department. The term “rapid prototyping” came into vogue during the 1990s to identify new computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) methods.54 Beginning in 1995, “rapid prototyping” spawned a pair of journals, the Journal of Rapid Prototyping Technology Abstracts, and the Rapid Prototyping Journal, as well as numerous international conferences sponsored by such diverse groups as France’s Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), the International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE), the European Optical Society (EOS), the Directorate General for Science, Research, and Development of the Commission of the European Communities, the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (and its Rapid Prototyping Association), and the Computer Society of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).55
McDonnell Douglas, however, used the term to describe a certain management approach to manufacturing that integrated various computer-assisted activities as well as a number of other stratagems that included collocation of engineering, design, and manufacturing; small management teams; and reduced paperwork. The Rapid Prototyping Department merged “integrated product team development” from Total Quality Management (TQM)— which corporate McDonnell Douglas endorsed at the time—with characteristics of the “fast-track” approach, such as delegated decision-making, short management lines, and collocated team members.56 The firm’s “rapid prototyping” thus combined the essentials of a “fast-track” approach with TQM. In this sense, “rapid prototyping” signified a more general management system than the more limited, but more generally accepted, definition of “rapid prototyping.”
The term “fast track” is greatly overused. One can understand McDonnell Douglas’s “rapid prototyping” as an industrial version of the “faster, smaller, cheaper” style of project management practiced by the SDIO. “Fast-track” approaches were not new to the firm. The X-Shot, for example, dated back many years. Program Manager Marvin Mark in the St. Louis division used the X-Shot during a competition with Boeing for the YC-14 and YC-15. “We built two airplanes,” Pete Conrad, McDonnell Douglas manager and former astronaut, explained. “We just sort of drew a picture, and hammered metal, and drew some more pictures, and hammered some more metal. That was the X-Shot way of doing it, rather than trying to go through a full-blown program.” 57 Another appropriate term for McDonnell Douglas’s “rapid prototyping,” and one commonly used in the space and aeronautics industries, is “skunk works,” a generic term for shops managed in this fashion. The name derives from the popular name for Lockheed’s Advanced Development Project.
In an ongoing effort to capitalize on “rapid” or “fast” management styles, aerospace firms often created so-called advanced development offices. Boeing, for example, had and still has its Phantom Works. Because their existence and activities are usually classified, little is known about them. Lockheed’s Advanced Development Project has received the widest attention, particularly because of its self-promotion. The original “Skonk Works” appeared in Al Capp’s “Li’l Abner” comic strip as a place where Appalachian natives combined skunks, old shoes, and other bizarre ingredients to concoct funky brews suited to a variety of purposes. The Lockheed “Skunk Works” has concocted such formerly secret aircraft as the U-2; the F-80 Shooting Star, the first aircraft to win an all-jet battle; the F-104 StarFighter; the SR-71 Blackbird; and the F-117A Stealth Fighter, famed for its performance in the 1991 Persian Gulf War.58
The pioneering effort of the Skunk Works in developing this management approach has received wide acceptance, but it is not necessarily accurate, because the nation’s major aircraft firms all have had special organizations at one time or another. Nonetheless, aerospace companies using a “rapid” or “fast-track” management style often call their shops skunk works, giving the term a more generic meaning. Thus, for better or worse, the Lockheed Advanced Development Project has become the quintessential “fast-track” shop. As such, its internal operating rules, called Kelly’s Rules 59 after Skunk Works founder, Clarence L. “Kelly” Johnson, have come to define the “fast-track” management approach (see appendix).
The name “Rapid Prototyping Department” struck Max Hunter as lacking a certain “pizzazz.” He proposed instead the Weasel Works. “Weasels,” Hunter explained, “are lean, mean fast little animals. Weasels are exceptionally strong for their size. Weasels can change colors to Ermine white as appropriate (in winter). Weasels are clever—hence the common belief you can ‘weasel around’ anything. (sounds like our team!)”60 Despite its novelty, and alliteration, the name did not catch on. In fact, McDonnell Douglas never considered using the name.61
Although today everyone “knows” what a “skunk works” or a “fast-track” or a “rapid” management approach is, there is little agreement on what those terms actually mean. A common misconception is that large-scale projects carried out to meet urgent deadlines, such as the Manhattan Project that developed and built an atomic bomb during World War II, are examples of “fast-track” management. The management of the vast Manhattan Project, with operations spread across the country and similar high-priority, large-scale programs, had no more to do with “skunk works” shop operations than did NASA’s Apollo program to put an American on the Moon by the end of the 1960s.
Nonetheless, these large-scale projects did share one characteristic with Lockheed’s Skunk Works and many other urgent programs: an abundance of government underwriting. Often, in order to expedite a program, government agencies have funded special programs lavishly to resolve technical bottlenecks and to meet program deadlines. Examples abound. Max Hunter, for instance, while working for Douglas, built the Thor missile in only nine months. The project was not “aimed at low cost, specifically,” meaning substantial government underwriting facilitated its completion. Moreover, Douglas achieved this remarkable success without using the Skunk Works as a model.62
Unlike the Thor, Manhattan Project, and Apollo programs, the SDIO’s SSTO program required that McDonnell Douglas build its DC-X vehicle in twenty-four months without an “open checkbook.” The project, after all, was not a national priority, like a fighter aircraft or spy plane. Decisionmaking was delegated, management lines were short, and team members were collocated. Implementing a “fast-track” approach would help the firm achieve that daunting deadline within budget. McDonnell Douglas’s “rapid prototyping” also differed from the usual “fast-track” project in that it borrowed from Total Quality Management.
The Rapid Prototyping Department used “integrated product team development” that had been developed for commercial industry, not the classified world of the cold war. “Integrated product team development” integrated all of a project’s functions—such as analysis, design, procurement, testing, management, manufacturing, and cost control—into a “team” linked together by teamwide communications and a “commitment” to the project.63 “Integrated product team development” came from a movement in management theory called Total Quality Management (TQM) and associated with its founder, W. Edwards Deming.64 Deming’s management ideas, concisely contained in his “fourteen points for management,”65 failed to take root in his native country, the United States, but found a home in Japan. Japanese industry was still recovering from World War II, and the country had a wide reputation as a manufacturer of shoddy goods throughout the 1950s. Following adoption and implementation of Deming’s fourteen points, international regard for Japanese manufactured goods changed. “Made in Japan” was no longer a name for poor-quality merchandise, as Japanese consumer products, especially consumer electronics, infiltrated and dominated one market after another.
Once Japanese industry experienced a turnaround assisted by the adoption of Deming’s fourteen points, United States exports, which had enjoyed some success in foreign markets, began to suffer, starting around 1968. American industry began to ask itself whether or not it should consider adopting what it perceived to be Japanese management techniques. By the 1980s, the United States imported more goods than it exported, becoming more dependent than ever on foreign-made products. American industry then turned to Deming’s fourteen points and a host of management gurus who preached the gospel of “excellence,” “quality,” “Quality Circles,” and “teams,” based on Deming’s work.
Deming’s fourteen points and TQM, which is based on it, stressed the importance of manufacturing quality goods and of providing quality services. High-quality products and services would win a larger market share and would create more profits and more jobs. Deming and his TQM disciples made satisfying the customer the focus of management attention, but moved the locus of where this occurs from its traditional place, in sales and marketing, to the manufacturing process. Deming’s emphasis on managing the manufacturing process put his ideas in the same conceptual tradition as scientific management, also known as Taylorism after its founder, Frederick Winslow Taylor (1856-1915). Scientific management also focused on the actual manufacturing process, on both labor and machinery, in order to increase efficiency and maximize profits. Both also measured human and mechanical activity and performed quantitative analysis of labor and production machinery. However, while scientific management introduced the efficiency expert, Total Quality Management brought industry the Quality Circle.66
In any case, both scientific management and TQM theories brought the attention of management to the production line. They were reminders (albeit unknowingly) that manufacturing is done in a shop culture. This is in contrast to most management theory, whose focus is on organizing and administering large organizations, namely, the modern corporation. Businesses have not ceased to grow in size and complexity, and professional managers have tried to achieve the forbidding task of maintaining order and sustaining growth simultaneously. As a consequence of attempting to deal with this ongoing expansion and increasing complexity, corporate organizations have acquired thicker and more convoluted hierarchical layers, and both paperwork and regulations have multiplied.67 A parallel growth in managerial and regulatory complexity also took place within the federal bureaucracy and was the target of President Reagan’s harangue that government had “overspent, overestimated, and overregulated.” It is within this context of bureaucratic size and complexity that the desirability of a “fast-track” approach becomes apparent.
Shops operating in a “fast-track” or “skunk works” mode are not new. They are, in fact, rather old, probably as old as shop practice itself. Indeed, the well-documented operation of Thomas Edison’s West Orange facility during the 1880s and later resembled that of a modern “fast-track” shop. Engineering, design, and manufacture all took place in the same building, with the thinnest levels of management and almost no paperwork.68 Within the aerospace industry, one finds early examples of collocating engineering and manufacturing. The original Douglas Space Division plant in Santa Monica, according to veteran employee Bill Gaubatz, had engineering and manufacturing operating side by side: “Our offices were right above the assembly line. Speaking of your construction work in the background: you heard the riveters going from morning to night.”69 By seeking (unconsciously) to recreate the manufacturing and engineering environment typified by Edison’s West Orange facility, or
even the early aviation industry, American firms have attempted to defeat the complicating levels of management and paperwork that are part and parcel of the rise of large corporate organizations both inside and outside the military-industrial complex. That was certainly the objective of the McDonnell
Douglas SSTO Rapid Prototyping Department.
The Rapid Prototyping Department came together in September 1991, a month after the firm won the Phase II contract, under the direction of Bill Gaubatz, program manager, and Paul Klevatt, deputy program manager. Klevatt set up the department after heading a team that had brainstormed ways to facilitate key processes. They concentrated on both computer software and electronic hardware and tried to maintain a high product quality while accomplishing all program milestones. Klevatt also had to convince management that these processes actually could be improved. While Klevatt ran the manufacturing and flight test operations, Gaubatz focused on keeping the program funded and dealing with other external concerns. McDonnell Douglas also planned to use the Rapid Prototyping Department for the subsequent SSTO program Phase III vehicle, the DC-Y. The DC-1 would be the fully operational model of the Delta Clipper, expected to be ready for fleet operation by 1998.70
The SSTO Rapid Prototyping Department reported directly to the vice president for Advanced Product Development and Technology (APD&T). It operated according to a number of simple rules that were typical of a “skunk works” shop. For example, key design decisions would take no more than five working days, though the goal was “always one day or less.” Computers executed engineering drawings and specifications, as well as hardware procurement, and department personnel would streamline the procurement of “catalog-type” parts and services. To meet the early delivery schedule for the DC-X, concurrent engineering became a requirement, not an idealistic design philosophy. Aerojet, a DC-X subcontractor, also used a rapid prototyping approach and small concurrent engineering teams. Both Aerojet and McDonnell Douglas electronically shared a common database of files. Employees, equipment, and decisionmaking were collocated within the same building. The vehicle would be built and integrated by about a hundred people. Klevatt and his team eliminated or reduced paperwork, though without the advantages of today’s more sophisticated electronic tools or software aids. Nonetheless, by the time the DC-X was built, they had reduced by 70 or 80 percent the amount of time it took to write software code.71

The DC-X
The DC-X built by McDonnell Douglas’s Rapid Prototyping Departmentwas an evolved version of the original concept. As described to the SDIO in December 1990, the full-scale single-stage-to-orbit vehicle (the DC-1) would take off and land vertically. It would be 111 feet (34 m) tall, have a base diameter of 35 feet (10.7 m), and weigh 58,005 pounds (26,366 kg) empty of fuel (669,413 pounds, 304,279 kg, with fuel). The one-third-scale DC-X was 39 feet (12 m) tall and weighed 22,000 pounds (10,000 kg) empty (41,630 pounds, 18,922 kg, with fuel).72 The greatest change from the original concept was the decision to replace the aerospike engine with a conventional bell nozzle engine.
Using the aerospike engine probably would have compromised the program schedule, or at least that is what Jay Penn’s team warned in the Aerospace Corporation review of the McDonnell Douglas single-stage-to-orbit vehicle. They suggested using a modified bell nozzle engine, such as the SSME (Space Shuttle Main Engine) or the RL-10 (built by Pratt & Whitney). This alternative would allow them to meet the program schedule, and they could upgrade or replace the vehicle’s engine later during the flight testing portion of the program. Meanwhile, they could use the modified engine to demonstrate many of the operability features that were a desired SSTO program goal.73
McDonnell Douglas independently came to the same conclusion as the Aerospace review. Indeed, all Phase I contractors concluded that the aerospike engine was far too risky and that it had no performance benefits over traditional bell nozzle engine technology, a technology that the industry and aerospace engineers understood better.74 The aerospike introduced a number of developmental and design complexities as well as program risks.75 “The bottom line,” Gaubatz recalled, “was that we could not convince ourselves that adapting the aerospike wasn’t a better Ph.D. thesis than a near-term solution. The promise it held for performance was always very interesting, but the added complexity and uncertainties didn’t make it a very good first choice.”76 NASA’s X-33 program later would more than demonstrate the difficulties of developing an operational aerospike engine and staying on schedule.
Instead of an aerospike, McDonnell Douglas chose a highly modified version of Pratt & Whitney’s RL -10 engine, which was based on their Centaur upper-stage booster.77 The choice was not just a technological decision. The firm performed extensive computational fluid dynamics analysis, as well as some wind tunnel testing, and considered results from prior studies. In addition, they could acquire the engines inexpensively. McDonnell Douglas learned that Pratt & Whitney had some available. The engine manufacturer was keen on supporting the project, so the two firms worked out an arrangement. McDonnell Douglas would borrow the engines from Pratt & Whitney, and the SDIO, through McDonnell Douglas, would pay for the engine modifications, which Pratt & Whitney’s Government Engines and Space Propulsion Division in West Palm Beach, Florida, carried out.78
Building the rest of the DC-X also involved using modified existing technology.No technology development took place, because the emphasis was on operations. Some items, such as welding rods and hinges, came from local hardware stores. Deutsche Aerospace of Munich, Germany, built the landing gear, and Burt Rutan’s Scaled Composites, Inc., Mojave, California, was the contractor for the exterior graphite composite aeroshell. The DC-X navigated with a GPS receiver and used the Honeywell avionics system built for F-18 and F-15 fighter planes, as well as a Honeywell computer. McDonnell Douglas workers salvaged and modified pressure regulators and cryogenic valves from Thor missiles that formerly had been positioned in Europe against the Soviet Union, saving perhaps as much as six months of labor.79
Curiously, the fabricator of the tanks for the liquid oxygen and hydrogen was not an aerospace firm but Chicago Bridge and Iron (CBI), located outside Birmingham, Alabama. The firm made large tanks for petrochemical works and had experience building large cylindrical aluminum containers for navysubmarines. With an eye to eventually building the full-scale vehicle, McDonnell Douglas wanted a company that could manufacture a 20-foot tank, although the DC-X required much smaller tanks.80 They made the tanks out of an alloy known as 2219 aluminum, although its use resulted in some welding difficulties.81 The DC-X launch site exemplified McDonnell Douglas’s success in achieving SSTO program operational goals.The Flight Operations Control Center at the White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, consisted of a compact, low-cost, 40-foot (12-m) mobile trailer that contained all necessary ground support equipment. Three people operated all the equipment and launched the DC-X, not the hundreds typical of rocket launches. Using liquid hydrogen, rather than kerosene or other more volatile rocket propellants, helped to simplify operations.82 Only one person oversaw the loading of propellants, while two others set up the flight plan. Just thirty-five people formed the launch preparation and turnaround crew.
The DC-X design allowed it to undergo a complete turnaround in three days. It eventually demonstrated a one-day turnaround (twenty-six hours) as well as the potential for an eight-hour turnaround.83 On-board monitoring also contributed to improve operations and maintenance. Sensors appraised the condition of critical subsystems and signaled the need to replace a component. Pete Conrad, the DC-X “flight manager,”84 insisted on aircraft-like launches. He had the DC-X design engineers meet the firm’s engineers who were designing a fully automated aircraft cockpit in order to learn more about aircraft methods.
Conrad was not new to the airplane world. After an astounding and colourful career as an astronaut, Conrad joined McDonnell Douglas in March of 1976, becoming vice president of commercial aircraft sales and later vice president for international marketing of all McDonnell Douglas products, including helicopters, fighter aircraft, and rockets. In 1990, he met Bill Gaubatz, who was managing the firm’s DC-X work. When Conrad heard that Gaubatz’s team was consulting with former astronaut John McBride, he said: “That’s rather silly. . . . You obviously have the wrong guy. I’d be more than happy to help.” Conrad joined the project and went on a hiatus from his other corporate duties.85
When McDonnell Douglas won the Phase II SDIO SSTO contract, Conrad realized that someone would have to fly the vehicle. “I remember very specifically telling Bill Gaubatz that I wanted to fly it, and be the ‘pilot,’” Conrad recalled. “At that point in time, I invented the term ‘flight manager’ for a very specific reason. . . . I renamed myself ‘flight manager,’ because I was managing the system. I wasn’t flying the system. The computer was flying the system.” “You’re going to get out to the end of the runway,” he explained, “and you’re going to run the engines up, and away you’re going to go.” After lighting the engines, flight control brought them up to 30 percent of power. If the computer said that all four engines were operating satisfactorily at 30 percent “we went to the flight mode and throttled up. It just flew off the stand.”86
On April 3, 1993, the DC-X rolled out, four months ahead of schedule, on budget, and ready for flight tests. This was in itself a major aerospace achievement. Also noteworthy was the software, which the subcontractor had developed and debugged on schedule too. Nonetheless, in the twenty months that had passed since McDonnell Douglas had won the SSTO Phase II contract, the world had changed, and the SDIO with it. Those changes had a major impact on the DC-X test flights and on the program itself, which was essentially over before the DC-X began to fly. With the changing New World Order came needs for new missile defense systems and leaner federal budgets.

Appendix:
Kelly’s Rules
  1. The Skunk Works manager must be delegated practically complete control of his program in all aspects. He should report to a division president or higher.
  2. Strong but small project offices must be provided both by the military and industry.
  3. The number of people having any connection with the project must be restricted in an almost vicious manner. Use a small number of good people (10 percent to 25 percent compared to the so-called normal systems).
  4. A very simple drawing and drawing release system with great flexibility for making changes must be provided.
  5. There must be a minimum number of reports required, but important work must be recorded thoroughly.
  6. There must be a monthly cost review covering not only what has been spent and committed but also projected costs to the conclusion of the program. Don’t have the books ninety days late and don’t surprise the customer with sudden overruns.
  7. The contractor must be delegated and must assume more than normal responsibility to get good vendor bids for subcontract on the project. Commercial bid procedures are very often better than military ones.
  8. The inspection system, as currently used by the Skunk Works, which has been approved by both the Air Force and the Navy, meets the intent of existing military requirements and should be used on new projects. Push more basic inspection responsibility back to subcontractors and vendors. Don’t duplicate so much inspection.
  9. The contractor must be delegated the authority to test his final product in flight. He can and must test it in the initial stages. If he doesn’t, he rapidly loses his competency to design other vehicles.
  10. The specifications applying to the hardware must be agreed to in advance of contracting. The Skunk Works practice of having a specification section stating clearly which important military specification items will not knowingly be complied with and reasons therefore is highly recommended.
  11. Funding program must be timely so that the contractor doesn’t have to keep running to the bank to support government projects.
  12. There must be a mutual trust between the military project organization and the contractor with very close cooperation and liaison on a day-to-day basis. This cuts down misunderstanding and correspondence to an absolute minimum.
  13. Access by outsiders to the project and its personnel must be strictly controlled by appropriate security measures.
  14. Because only a few people will be used in engineering and most other areas, ways must be provided to reward good performance by pay not based on the number of personnel supervised.

2020.05.31 20:25 jcollywobble Which part of the UK produces the best footballers? (Experiment) (Part 4)

Here we are again, with my penultimate post relating to this experiment. I will reveal the final five teams below and will also introduce a prediction game in which you can to predict how the season will pan out once I simulate on FM. If you’re new to this and how it will work, have a look at the previous three posts below.
Part 1 – Explains how the experiment will work and reveals the first five teams.
Part 2 – Reveal of Teams 5-10 and maps of the split of the regions.
Part 3 – Reveal of Teams 10-15.
As someone quite rightly pointed out in the previous post, Chris Wilder should have been made manager of the South Yorkshire & Humber team rather than Neil Warnock (I originally wrongly had Wilder down as the manager of the North & West Yorkshire team), so that’s been changed for the experiment going forward.
Moving on to the teams, featuring the remainder of the English Counties and the Scottish and Northern Irish contingent, we have some interesting names including a certain Borussia Dortmund striker, the most successful British football manager of all time and a handful of Champions League winners.
__________
Team 16 – North & West Yorks’ -North Yorkshire, West Yorkshire – Population: 3,434,422 Media Prediction: 10th - Title Odds: 40-1
Manager – Steve McClaren (York, Unemployed)

https://preview.redd.it/3r46ld1675251.png?width=565&format=png&auto=webp&s=7192df704e8b6d1c37de9a355842a6ef333cee44
Likely Starting XI
The region of Yorkshire would have finished 12th in the 2012 Olympics medal table if considered an independent country, the impressive production of line of sportsmen also includes some decent footballers as shown by the quality included within the South Yorkshire team. The North & West Yorkshire team doesn’t quite have the same level of ability however does boast some exciting names.
Steve McClaren, nicknamed ‘the wally with the brolly’ as part of his unsuccessful spell as England manager failing to qualify for Euro 2008, will manage the North & West Yorks’ side. McClaren has managed in Germany, Holland and England since then and guided FC Twente to their first ever Eredivisie title in 2009. Since then, he has rather unsuccessful spells at the likes of Newcastle, QPR and Wolfsburg.
The standout name within this team is the Norwegian wonderkid Erling Braut Haaland, who surprisingly was born in Leeds when his Dad Alfe-Inge was playing for Leeds in the late nineties. Haaland has been an absolute revelation in the past year and has scored for fun, even since joining Dortmund he has in averaging almost a goal a game. Haaland will be part of an exciting young attacking trio alongside Mason Greenwood and Oli McBurnie which will certainly be full of raw talent and ability with an enormous amount of potential.
Amongst the rest of the team, James Milner is the most experienced player by a long way, Milner seems to get better with age and will probably put in a decent shift in any position with McClaren chooses to deploy him. Fabian Delph and Leeds’ Kalvin Phillips will form a tireless midfield duo and are both arguably premier league standard players who will make a big impact in the team. Bournemouth’s Lewis Cook who has been once capped for England will also throw his name in the hat to be a part of McClaren’s starting midfield.
In defence, Norwich’s Ben Godfrey looks to be the standout player (apart from Milner) and will probably partner either Andre Wisdom or Connor Goldson at the back depending what system McClaren adopts. The number one shirt will go to Cardiff’s Alex Smithies, who has featured 21 times for Cardiff in the championship in the year so far and will offer a reliable choice in net, although probably won’t do anything spectacular.
Haalands goals alongside Miners experience could prove vital to McClaren’s men having a good season as there doesn’t appear to be a great deal of quality to warrant a better finish than the currently predicted 10th place
__________
Team 17 – North-East & Borders - County Durham, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, East Midlothian, Edinburgh City, Midlothian, Scottish Borders - Population: 3,127,298 Media Prediction: 11th - Title Odds: 45-1
Manager – Gordon Strachan (Edinburgh, Unemployed)

https://preview.redd.it/0ffhm8ma75251.png?width=551&format=png&auto=webp&s=2ff11e279d01dc2e02544417d30f2c4e1d459d6b
Likely Starting XI
The North-East of England is a football mad region which has produced amazing players in the past, including the likes of Chris Waddle, Gazza, Peter Beardsley, Michael Carrick and of course the legendary Alan Shearer. In terms of the Scottish contingent of the squad, Edinburgh is less known for producing football players compared to the other big Scottish city Glasgow, however the manager, Edinburgh-born Gordon Strachan will be representing the Scots.
Out of the 25 players, only 3 Scottish born players make the squad, all of whom will probably be fringe players. The squad unfortunately doesn’t match the level of ability of its predecessors from the region. Sunderland academy products Jordan Pickford and Jordan Henderson, who lifted the champions league trophy last year, are the two stand out players from this region. Pickford has been England’s first choice goalkeeper for the past few years and is one of the better keepers in this league.
Alongside Henderson in the midfield will be one of the Longstaff brothers who have both came through the Newcastle academy. Sean had his breakthrough season last season whilst brother Matty has emerged within the current season. Both brothers are a similar type of player with younger brother, Matty has a bit more energy and probably offers a more balanced option alongside Henderson.
Another Borussia Dortmund youngster who was born in the UK, Giovanni Reyna, features in the attacking midfield. Gio was born in Sunderland of all places, when his Dad Claudio was playing in the North-East. Reyna is predicted to start in the number ten role behind either Leigh Griffiths or 9 time England capped and £35m man (at one point) Andy Carroll. Carroll has largely had a career of injuries and under-performances since his big money move to Liverpool but will always be a handful for defenders.
In defence, the squad features some decent premier league players, including the likes of Ben Gibson, Chris Basham, Dan Burn and Welsh international Paul Dummett. Unfortunately, the strength in defence is largely in the central positions with the full back positions looking a lot weaker by comparison.
Overall a decent team that should be in and around the mid table positions come the end of the season. Pickford and the defence should hope to keep the clean sheets to take the pressure off the attacking part of the team.

Likely Starting XI
The team featuring Northern Ireland and my place of birth, I’ll be backing Rodgers’ men for when I come to simulate the season. I’ve also included Isle of Man (who technically aren’t in the UK, but I’ve thrown them in for the inclusion of a particular player. As mentioned, Brendan Rodgers will take charge of this team which could’ve had either Martin or Michael O’Neill at the helm and he will be hoping to take this team higher than their predicted finish of 13th. The squad has a wealth of international experience featuring 743 international caps between them from players representing Northern Ireland, Scotland and the Republic of Ireland.
The squad’s composition is made up of 14 Northern Irishmen, 10 Scots and the one player born in the Isle of Man, Kieran Tierney who plays his international football for Scotland. Tierney is probably the key player in the squad and there may have a been a bit of bias about his inclusion to boost the chances of this team. Nonetheless he is part of a decent defence which includes 3 time premier league winner and 80-time Northern Ireland capped Jonny Evans. Amongst the rest of defence, there is Watford’s Craig Cathcart, Brighton’s Shane Duffy and Grant Hanley.
The midfield and attack are underwhelming and features only one player currently playing in the premier league. However, James Forrest offers a threat from the right wing and will be hoping to use his pace and trickery to full effect. On the other flank will probably be James McClean who no doubt would turn his nose up at representing this region if called upon in reality.
Leading the line will be either of the ageing duo of Steven Naismith or Kyle Lafferty who would offer a more direct option for Rodgers’ men. Finally, in goal, Craig Gordon should provide a decent option and has played in the premier league in the past.
Despite my allegainces to this team, I’m not too hopeful considering the squad above, but fingers crossed Brendan can work his magic and a top ten finish would be a success!

Manager – Alex Ferguson (Glasgow, Man United (Technical Director))

https://preview.redd.it/vv1kvxzt75251.png?width=564&format=png&auto=webp&s=1a9706ddaf93804892888362dff207a8735eeb65
Likely Starting XI
Yes, that’s right, the most successful football manager of all time is coming out of retirement to participate in this experiment. I had some doubts over the inclusion of Fergie as he’s not technically still in management, nonetheless I thought I’d throw him in as he is still classed as being able to manage on FM and it could add another mini-experiment in the context of this to see how Fergie would do coming back to management with this type of squad at 78 years of age.
The remaining counties of Scotland represent this team and, like the previous squad, has plenty of international of experience. Champions League winner and probably the best left back in the league, Andy Robertson, is the key player in this team and adds some quality to the defence which doesn’t appear to be anything special outside Robertson with the remaining defenders largely being at mid table SPL clubs.
The midfield of this team is certainly the strength, FM predicts Celtic duo Callum McGregor and Scott Brown to sit in a pivot in front of the defence. Both players provide a balanced midfield and have experience playing in Celtic’s dominant spell in Scottish football. James McCarthy will also make a decent option if the managers decides to play with a three in midfield. In front of those two, will be an attacking trio of premier league players Ryan Fraser, Robert Snodgrass and Stefan Armstrong. Fraser, in particular, will be a threat with his direct running and ability to beat his man on the wing.
The striker position, however, appears to be lacking quality. FM is predicting Dundee United man, Lawrence Shankland, to start upfront although Ferguson also has the option of Ross McCormack who has previously been prolific in the championship for both Leeds and Fulham.
It will be interesting to see what effect the manager has on this team, theoretically the team should overperform with an excellent manager and that’s perhaps why they are predicted to finish 7th.
__________
Team 20 – Western England - Cheshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire - Population: 3,237,053 Media Prediction: 15th - Title Odds: 250-1
Manager – Adrian Heath (Newcastle-under-Lyme, Minnesota United)

https://preview.redd.it/0h6tixrx75251.png?width=581&format=png&auto=webp&s=d2ebc7498c6e10c6822e476f56ac83b45528283f
Likely Starting XI
And, the final team in the experiment as you may have noticed is a strange combination of counties. This region was put together as the result of my mistake of having to construct a region made up of the qualifying population after incorrectly dividing the UK into 19 teams and having to pull a group of counties together from the other regions I’d already selected.
Managing this team will be former Everton and Burnley footballer Adrian Heath. Heath has managed in the USA since 2008 after brief spells at Burnley and Sheffield United in the late nineties. An unfamiliar name to most in terms of management, it remains to be seen what impact he will have.
Onto the players. At first glance the teams appear to be made up of a group of washed up premier league players with a sprinkle of young talent. Typifying this is the goalkeeping position, Joe Hart and Tom Heaton, will compete for the number one jersey alongside young Bournemouth keeper Aaron Ramsdale. It seems like most of the other regions would be begging for any one of these three considering the lack of ability in this position at most of the other teams.
In defence, the trend continues with the likes of Stoke duo James Chester and Ryan Shawcross who are alongside Jack Robinson and Curtis Nelson in the centre back position. The squad has a decent amount of ability in the midfield, which includes Jesse Lingard who more well known for his off the field social media antics than his ability on the pitch. Bournemouth’s David Brooks will probably play behind the striker whilst another of Leicester’s title winners, Marc Albrighton, will play on the left.
An ageing Steven Fletcher will probably play upfront with competition from Millwall’s Tom Bradshaw and Preston’s Louis Moult who don’t appear to be having great seasons to date.
15th is probably about right for this squad although the relative inexperience of Adrian Heath could have an impact on how the season goes.

I hope you’ve all enjoyed the reveal of the teams in the last four posts and my write-ups which have taken a fair bit of time. In the next post, I’ll be showing the results of the experiment which will be simulated in Football Manager 2020 and also the results of the prediction game. I thought it would be fun to predict what will happen in the simulation, so if you want to participate add a comment with your predictions for the following (I’ve added my guesses in too). The previous posts are linked at the top of this page if you want a refresher on who’s playing for who. The awards will be decided by FM as a result of the individual players performance over the course of the season and I will also be adding a cup competition which will probably be knockout-based to run alongside the league.

2020.05.24 23:09 finnagains Unexpected Movie Masterpieces to Watch in Quarantine - by David Sims (The Atlantic) 10 April 2020

Some were blasted by critics, some flopped at the box office, and all are ripe to attain cult-classic status.
With new cinema releases grinding to a halt in response to the spread of the coronavirus, I’ve used these weeks of self-quarantine to cast an eye backward over the cinematic canon, to rewatch old favorites, and to fill in viewing gaps. Now I’ve begun evaluating films that, for whatever reason, didn’t get a fair shake when they were released. Some were blasted by critics, and others simply made no impression at the box office; all of them are available to watch online, just waiting to become cult classics. The 30 films I’ve chosen as the most underrated are all from the past 25 years, and many belong to genres (rom-com, sci-fi, thriller) that are overlooked in serious critical circles. Some of my selections might seem obvious and others ludicrous, but all were made in the spirit of enjoyable debate and discovery.
the Box-Office Flops
Kino Lorber Archipelago (2010, directed by Joanna Hogg)
Joanna Hogg broke out in American art houses last year with her wonderful autobiographical work The Souvenir, but she’s been making terrific indie films for years. Archipelago might be her best. A quiet drama, it sees Edward (played by Tom Hiddleston, a year before Thor catapulted him to fame) gathering with his family on the remote British island of Tresco after quitting his job to travel the world. Many long-simmering tensions boil to the surface; Hiddleston (who is in most of Hogg’s movies) gives one of his best screen performances, and Hogg depicts subtle, polite infighting with humor and insight. No filmmaker has a better handle on the ridiculous foibles of the English upper-middle class.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime Babe: Pig in the City (1998, directed by George Miller)
George Miller is the master of sequels. Each of his installments in the Mad Max series is innovative; his Happy Feet Two is quietly underrated. But he’s never made a follow-up as strange and beguiling as Babe: Pig in the City. Miller wrote and produced the first Babe, a charming, Oscar-winning success. In the director’s chair for part two, though, he turned the sweet fable of a pig who wanted to herd sheep into a grim fairy tale about life in the big city. The movie was a commercial disaster, but it’s a rewarding, beautifully designed work set in a fantasy city that mashes up landmarks from every modern metropolis. The plot, such as it is, follows Babe as he goes on a trip and mixes it up with more streetwise animal brethren (the director Noah Baumbach once said that the film’s closest thematic companion is Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut).
Watch it on: Hulu, HBO Beyond the Lights (2014, directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood)
A gorgeous romantic drama about the pain and pleasure of pop stardom, Gina Prince-Bythewood’s remarkable Beyond the Lights made little impression at the box office on release, despite a star-making turn from Gugu Mbatha-Raw. The actor plays a Rihanna-esque figure named Noni Jean who falls for a police officer (Nate Parker) and tries to escape the limelight. Prince-Bythewood, who also wrote and directed the incredible Love & Basketball, is one of only a few people in Hollywood still trying to film genuine love stories, and she deserves many more chances to do so on the big screen.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime Cadillac Records (2008, directed by Darnell Martin)
The smartest music biopic from a decade full of them (including 2004’s Ray and 2005’s Walk the Line, to name a couple), Darnell Martin’s portrayal of the rise and fall of Chess Records was woefully underseen in 2008. The film digs into the exploitative dynamics at work in so many early rock-and-roll labels, examining the troubled relationships between Leonard Chess (Adrien Brody) and his biggest stars: Muddy Waters (Jeffrey Wright), Etta James (Beyoncé Knowles), and Howlin’ Wolf (Eamonn Walker). The film has a harder edge than its contemporaries, and the musical performances are particularly sensational.
Watch it on: Crackle
Cloud Atlas (2012, directed by Lana Wachowski, Lilly Wachowski, and Tom Tykwer)
This is the most dizzyingly ambitious project in the Wachowski sisters’ expansive filmography. Adapting David Mitchell’s novel of the same name, Cloud Atlas encompasses six distinct stories, beginning with an 1849 naval adventure and zipping through the 1930s, the ’70s, and the present day before blasting to the clone-filled future of 2144 and ending in a postapocalyptic 2321. Members of the ensemble, including Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugh Grant, and Doona Bae, play different characters in each story line, and the film jumps backward and forward through time to reveal surprising thematic links. As with many a Wachowski project, you have to make a few logical leaps to get on board, but if you can, there’s no movie experience like it.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime
20th Century Fox Film Corp. Down With Love (2003, directed by Peyton Reed)
This knowing throwback to the “no-sex sex comedies” of the late ’50s and ’60s (like the Doris Day–starring Pillow Talk and Lover Come Back) was too clever for its own good on release. But it’s a fabulous, entertaining, and singular creation, both celebrating and subverting the innuendo-filled rom-coms of yesteryear. An impeccably styled Renée Zellweger and Ewan McGregor star as lifestyle writers who form a friendly rivalry in 1960s New York. Sarah Paulson and David Hyde Pierce round out the cast, and Peyton Reed (who had just directed Bring It On in 2000) plays off the visual language of his source material in stylish, innovative, and cheeky ways. When you watch, be sure to stick around for the fantastic musical number over the closing credits.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime Dredd (2012, directed by Pete Travis)
Perhaps the best comic-book movie of the past decade was Dredd, a gritty adaptation of the Judge Dredd series that was a financial flop on release. Set in a dictatorial future in which armored policemen are empowered to dispense lethal justice for almost any crime, the film takes place entirely within a colossal tower block, following Dredd (Karl Urban) and a new trainee as they do battle with a sadistic mob boss (Lena Headey). It’s a gruesome but smart movie, at once lionizing and satirizing the ruthless efficiency of its hero. The film was written and produced by Alex Garland (Ex Machina, Annihilation), who has since become one of the most exciting sci-fi directors working today.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime Killing Them Softly (2012, directed by Andrew Dominik)
Killing Them Softly is Andrew Dominik’s brutal follow-up to his painterly revisionist Western, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. Also starring Brad Pitt, Killing Them Softly takes George V. Higgins’s hard-boiled ’70s crime novel Cogan’s Trade and updates it to the present day, following a mob robbery that goes wrong and the assassin (Pitt) hired to clean everything up. Dominik turns the web of competing criminal interests into a broad metaphor for the quagmire of the Iraq War. Killing Them Softly may have been too weird and slow for general audiences (it’s one of the few movies ever to earn an F on CinemaScore). But it’s bleakly funny and impressively acted by a cast that includes James Gandolfini, Ray Liotta, and Ben Mendelsohn.
Watch it on: Netflix Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005, directed by Shane Black)
The film that put Robert Downey Jr. back on the map was critically praised but ignored at the box office in 2005. An extremely metatextual crime comedy, it follows a thief (Downey Jr.) pretending to be an actor who gets mixed up in a murder and goes on the lam with his acting coach, a private investigator (Val Kilmer). The story line is as complicated as it sounds, but the thrill of Shane Black’s film lies in his hilariously punchy dialogue and his skill at making the most convoluted plotting flow with ease. The movie reintroduced Downey Jr. as a leading man after he’d spent years struggling with addiction: He was hired to play Iron Man mostly on the strength of this performance.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime Premium Rush (2012, directed by David Koepp)
David Koepp’s bike-messenger thriller is far more robust than that description might suggest. Set on New York’s crowded streets, it follows Wilee (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a deliveryman who picks up a package that’s tied to a criminal conspiracy; soon enough, he’s being chased around town by a crooked cop, Bobby Monday (Michael Shannon), who’s intent on taking him down. The story is told with unrelenting silliness, and Koepp translates Wilee’s brash confidence about weaving in and out of traffic into a visual roller-coaster ride. The highlight, though, is Shannon’s performance—he turns Monday into a living Looney Toon, gnashing his teeth and bulging out his eyes in fury with abandon.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime Solaris (2002, directed by Steven Soderbergh)
Steven Soderbergh’s sci-fi opus was decried on release for daring to re-adapt a novel (by Stanisław Lem) that had already been turned into a film masterpiece (Andrei Tarkovsky’s sprawling 1972 work of the same name). But Soderbergh’s movie is a very different beast from Tarkovsky’s, stripping the story down to 99 minutes and focusing on the haunting romance at the center of the book. George Clooney plays Chris Kelvin, a psychologist haunted by the suicide of his wife, Rheya (Natascha McElhone). After hearing the mysterious distress signals sent out by a distant space station, he travels there—and finds Rheya, somehow re-created by the planet that the station is orbiting. The film includes stellar supporting performances by Viola Davis and Jeremy Davies, a beautifully understated score from Cliff Martinez, and some of the most compelling world-building in Soderbergh’s career.
Watch it on: Hulu
Sunshine (2007, directed by Danny Boyle)
This stunning space-mission drama from Danny Boyle and the screenwriter Alex Garland might be the Oscar-winning director’s best film. A wildly intense thriller about a last-gasp effort to restart the dying sun, Sunshine pits an outstanding cast (Cillian Murphy, Michelle Yeoh, Chris Evans, Rose Byrne, and more) against a monolithic enemy: the star at the center of our solar system, which Boyle depicts as an immovable, godlike force. As the voyagers’ ship gets closer to the sun, everything on board goes more and more haywire, and Boyle—who can depict the onset of madness better than almost anyone working—dials up the chaos.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime Talk to Me (2007, directed By Kasi Lemmons)
Kasi Lemmons, whose most recent work is 2019’s Harriet, has long been one of Hollywood’s most criminally unheralded directors, and Talk to Me never got the wide audience it deserved in 2007. It’s a biopic of the controversial Washington, D.C., radio host Petey Greene (Don Cheadle) that’s unafraid to be messy, reflecting its subject’s surprising rise to fame as someone who fearlessly speaks his mind on the social and political issues of the 1970s. The film is grounded by excellent performances from Cheadle, Taraji P. Henson, and Chiwetel Ejiofor, who plays Greene’s put-upon manager, Dewey Hughes.
Watch it on: Hulu, Sling What If (2013, directed by Michael Dowse)
Also known as The F Word (its title was changed in America for obvious reasons), this extremely charming slow-burn rom-com was unfairly overlooked on release. It follows two people (Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan) who become friends but spend the entire time wondering if they’d be better off as lovers. Many relationship hijinks ensue, but the movie works because of the performances at its center, along with energetic supporting turns from Adam Driver and Mackenzie Davis, who were both on their way to bigger, franchise fame.
Watch it on: Prime The Yards (2000, directed by James Gray)
Back in 2000, James Gray’s operatic crime thriller was dumped unceremoniously into theaters by Harvey Weinstein and ignored by audiences. Like all the director’s films, though, it’s well worth viewing, combining hard-boiled storytelling with graceful visuals. Mark Wahlberg gives one of his best performances as Leo, an ex-con who returns to the fold of his shady New York family and gets tangled up in city corruption surrounding the subway system. A shifty Joaquin Phoenix plays Leo’s ne’er-do-well friend who is embroiled in a dramatic relationship with a young woman (Charlize Theron), while James Caan is suitably menacing as Leo’s morally dubious benefactor. The Yards also showed the first signs of Gray’s considerable talent; he’d go on to make We Own the Night, Two Lovers, The Lost City of Z, and Ad Astra.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime the critical bombs
Warner Bros. Addicted to Love (1997, directed by Griffin DUnne)
All of Griffin Dunne’s films (including the delightfully bizarre Practical Magic) deserve more appreciation, but Addicted to Love is a personal favorite of mine, a largely forgotten romantic comedy that satirizes gooey Hollywood storytelling tropes. It casts Meg Ryan and Matthew Broderick, two stalwarts of the rom-com genre, as a bitter pair united by a hatred of their respective exes, who are now dating each other. Ryan and Broderick spy on their former partners and, of course, eventually fall for each other, but the film never sacrifices its acidic tone, even as their relationship turns tender.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime Armageddon (1998, directed by Michael Bay)
If nothing else, Armageddon is a crucial cultural artifact: a portent of American culture’s jingoism in the 2000s, when blockbuster action sequences had the tone and tenor of Budweiser commercials. Where Michael Bay’s prior film, The Rock (which is much better regarded), had tapped into the U.S. military’s dysfunction and despondency post-Vietnam, Armageddon sees the country uniting to obliterate an evil asteroid by turning to … the oil industry. (It also spends a good chunk of time mocking post-Soviet Russia.) Despite the ridiculous plotting and Bay’s frenetic editing of every set piece, Armageddon is the clearest distillation of his macho brand of propaganda, designed to have audiences cheering by the end (against their better judgment). Listen to Ben Affleck’s gleeful commentary to triple the entertainment factor.
Watch it on: Hulu, HBO Blackhat (2015, directed by Michael Mann)
Five years ago, one of the great contemporary directors still working made a globe-trotting cyber thriller starring Thor himself and was completely ignored. Booed by critics and dumped by its studio into the doldrums of January, Blackhat made only a shocking $8 million at the domestic box office. Yet it’s a terrific entry in Michael Mann’s esteemed body of work (which includes other movies, such as Heat, Miami Vice, and Manhunter, that were underrated in their day). Chris Hemsworth plays a hard-bodied hacker who’s released from prison to battle a shadowy online terrorist; like many of Mann’s later films, Blackhat is a story of the analog world’s struggle to confront its digital future, wrapped up in a very masculine action saga. If you can, try to catch the director’s cut, which cleans up some of the film’s dense plotting and airs regularly on FX.
Watch it on: FX The Box (2009, directed by Richard Kelly)
This is the third film directed by Richard Kelly, a onetime wunderkind who burst onto the scene with the 2001 cult hit Donnie Darko. The Box is also his best, though few have recognized it as such. It was a bomb on release, getting poor reviews and the rare dishonor of an F from CinemaScore. But its wild ambition is second to none, spinning Richard Matheson’s mordant short story “Button, Button” into a paranoid 1970s epic—part domestic drama, part psychological horror, part sci-fi fantasy revolving around a NASA expedition to Mars and magic portals. This movie has short, simple scares that I’ve never forgotten, and a plot convoluted enough to obsess over forever. I live in hope of a fourth film from Kelly.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime Constantine (2005, directed by Francis Lawrence)
Fifteen years after its release, this remains one of the best and cleverest comic-book adaptations ever made, and probably the most underrated entry in Keanu Reeves’s cinematic career. This is a horror thriller that dives into biblical fantasy, casting a varied ensemble (Tilda Swinton, Djimon Hounsou, Gavin Rossdale, and Shia LaBeouf) as various angels and demons doing battle in modern-day Los Angeles. Based on Alan Moore’s Vertigo comic Hellblazer, Constantine junks a lot of the established hallmarks of the character John Constantine (he’s supposed to be a witty Brit who looks like Sting), but that doesn’t matter. Reeves’s laconic style is a perfect fit for the cynical antihero, and Rachel Weisz thrives in twin roles as sisters on either side of an infernal crime that Constantine is called to investigate.
Watch it on: DC Universe The Counselor (2013, directed by Ridley Scott)
Of the seven films made by Ridley Scott in the past decade, none is more critically reviled than The Counselor, a knotty crime drama written by Cormac McCarthy and featuring an all-star ensemble that includes Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Michael Fassbender, Penélope Cruz, and Cameron Diaz. Summarizing its noir-ish plot, which revolves around the Juárez, Mexico, drug trade, is impossible, but the film is worth watching simply because there’s nothing like it. McCarthy’s florid dialogue and Scott’s hazy visuals are bewitching, and every actor gives an energetic performance pushed to ridiculous heights (one scene in particular, involving Diaz and a Ferrari, is hypnotically baffling). The Counselor is a dark acquired taste, but a deeply satisfying one.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime Universal pictures The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006, directed by Justin Lin)
After the success of the first Fast and the Furious movie, in 2001, Vin Diesel’s car-racing franchise struggled to stand out until 2009, when its original cast returned under Justin Lin’s direction for the surprise smash Fast & Furious. But the groundwork for that revitalization had been laid three years earlier with Tokyo Drift, Lin’s debut film in the series. Though Tokyo Drift introduces Sung Kang as the fan-favorite character Han, none of the series’s other beloved characters appears. Yet Lin’s skill with crisp action and quick-paced banter—built up in his fantastic breakthrough, Better Luck Tomorrow, which also starred Kang—makes this one of the best in the franchise.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime Hulk (2003, directed by Ang Lee)
Coming off the resounding success of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Ang Lee could’ve made any film he wanted. He picked an adaptation of Marvel Comics’ most tortured star, the Hulk (Eric Bana). At the time, the movie was seen as odd, mocked for its wobbly CGI, and suffered one of the largest box-office drops in history for a blockbuster after its opening weekend. Viewed now, given the cookie-cutter format of contemporary superhero movies, it’s a startling experience. Lee turns his film into a living comic book, zooming in and out of boxy frames and inventing a visual language that could’ve become an exciting norm for the medium. The story, which sees the Hulk doing Freudian battle with his demonic father (Nick Nolte) and unearthing dark family secrets, is bizarre, and thrillingly so.
Watch it on: Starz In the Cut (2003, directed by Jane Campion)
Every film Jane Campion has directed since her Oscar-winning The Piano (1993) is underrated and underseen, but In the Cut was perhaps her biggest flop on release. That was partly because it subverted Meg Ryan’s usual bubbly onscreen persona, casting her as Frannie Avery, an introverted English teacher who starts dating the detective (Mark Ruffalo) investigating a murder case in her apartment building. It’s a sweaty, grisly, and sexually charged thriller that swerves from strange comedy to gory horror from scene to scene. But that tonal whiplash is one of Campion’s smartest storytelling tools, properly rattling viewers and plunging them into Frannie’s mixed-up headspace.
Watch it on: Crackle Jennifer’s Body (2009, directed by Karyn Kusama)
This is the movie that landed Karyn Kusama in “movie jail” for almost a decade: a gleefully bloody teen-horror comedy that was undone by the high expectations for its script. The writer, Diablo Cody, had won an Oscar the previous year for her Juno screenplay, and though this follow-up had that film’s humor, its intense gore and flippant humor were too much for critics at the time. Fortunately, Jennifer’s Body is already being reevaluated as a trashy classic, a nastier update of movies like Heathers that turns the social competition of high school into a literal bloodbath. Kusama has also reemerged as a filmmaker, with the excellent indie horror The Invitation.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime Universal pictures Josie and the Pussycats (2001, directed by Harry Elfont and Deborah Kaplan)
This knowing revival of the Archie Comics series was a failure on release, but has deservedly attracted a cult following in the years since. It’s a pitch-perfect parody of the manufactured pop pipeline in the early 2000s, watching as the chipper rock band comprising Josie (Rachael Leigh Cook), Melody (Tara Reid), and Valerie (Rosario Dawson) is run through the major-label mill. Parker Posey and Alan Cumming play perfect corporate villains, and almost every scene is suffused with ostentatious subliminal advertising, with au courant brand names crowding the frame. It’s a bitingly clever work, with a great power-pop soundtrack that includes contributions from the late Adam Schlesinger.
Watch it on: Hulu with Cinemax, Xfinity Jupiter Ascending (2015, directed by Lana Wachowski and Lilly Wachowski)
In the 2010s, blockbuster studio filmmaking made a hard pivot to existing intellectual property for its biggest movies: Star Wars, comic books, anything audiences might have nostalgia for. The Wachowskis, as they often do, went their own route. After giving cinema one of its greatest franchises in 1999 with The Matrix, the duo took a different direction in 2015 with a loopily operatic sci-fi epic rooted in nothing but their own imaginations. They were pilloried by critics. Jupiter Ascending is a wonderfully absurd space fairy tale starring Channing Tatum as a dog-man, Eddie Redmayne as an immortal arch-capitalist villain, and Mila Kunis as a secret princess who unwittingly owns the property deeds to our solar system. If you can get on this movie’s wavelength, you’ll find much to enjoy in its many flights of fancy.
Watch it on: Netflix
Non-Stop (2014, directed by Jaume Collet-Serra)
Since the surprise success of Taken in 2008, Liam Neeson has played a broken-down man forced to take the law into his own hands in countless mid-budget action dramas: Unknown, Cold Pursuit, The Commuter, Run All Night, and many more. Non-Stop is easily the best of them, partly thanks to Jaume Collet-Serra, a Spanish director who is one of the finest purveyors of modern pulp cinema (along with many Neeson movies, his other credits include The Shallows and Orphan). Set entirely on an airplane flying from New York to London, Non-Stop follows an alcoholic air marshal who gets caught in a deadly battle when a terrorist starts texting him. Perfectly befitting its setting, this thriller has the plot of the best kind of airplane paperback, with just the right number of twists and turns.
Watch it on: Sling Ocean’s Twelve (2004, directed by Steven Soderbergh)
Despite coasting to box-office success, Ocean’s Twelve was disliked on release for swerving in the opposite direction from the über-cool Ocean’s Eleven. Critics dismissed it as overindulgent, pretentious, and ultimately pointless: The heist plot is nigh-impossible to understand, most of the crucial exposition is entirely absent, and there’s a subplot in which the character played by Julia Roberts pretends to be the real Julia Roberts. In hindsight, though, the film is a perfect deconstruction of sequel logic, showing the difficulty of finding new directions for a beloved cast of characters. Where Ocean’s Eleven was all smooth style, Ocean’s Twelve is a knowing subversion that lays bare the ridiculous fallacy of movie-star charm. It also happens to be very, very funny.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime Pain & Gain (2013, directed by Michael Bay)
Practically every Bay film has been dismissed by reviewers on release, and often for good reason. His high-octane storytelling style makes the simplest scenes of dialogue utterly hyperactive, and most of his recent efforts are about talking robot toys. But Pain & Gain was a sly departure for this director, a low-budget (by his standards) crime comedy that feels like a Coen Brothers movie on growth hormones. Based on a true story, Pain & Gain is about three bodybuilders (played by Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, and Anthony Mackie) who embark on a harebrained kidnapping scheme for easy money; naturally, things quickly go awry. Bay doesn’t abandon his trademark energy, but instead deploys it as satire—these characters might think they’re in a flashy action movie, but their circumstances are far more mundane and depressing.

2020.05.01 20:36 JTigertail Angela Hammond was abducted while using a payphone to talk to her fiancé on April 4, 1991. 29 years later, her case remains unsolved.

See this post for sources and footnotes/clarifications to some of the details in this write-up. I also created this interactive map showing all relevant locations in this case, including the chase route.

Angela Marie Hammond was born in Kansas City, Missouri on February 9, 1971. She moved away when she was four years old and spent most of her life living in small-town Missouri.1 She is described as a popular, extroverted young woman, a “typical teenager” who liked to hang out with her friends and cruise around town in her 1987 red Mustang.
“Ang was the type of person who was very outgoing, fun-loving,” says her mother, Marsha Cook. “She was headstrong. She didn’t care what anybody thought. If she wanted to do something, she did it.”
In November 1990, Angela began dating Robert Shafer, an 18-year-old senior at Clinton High School. By January, she was pregnant with their child, and the couple quickly got engaged and began to prepare for the new baby. According to contemporary news reports, she was either taking classes at Central Missouri State University in nearby Warrensburg in April 1991, or had recently dropped out to work as a night processor at the Union State Bank in Clinton. The baby was due to be born on September 2, 1991.
On April 4, 1991, Rob, Angela, and her best friend, Kyla, spent the day with Marsha at a wiener roast in Montrose, about 20 miles southwest of Clinton. According to Marsha, the trio parted ways with her at around 9:00 PM to go “goofing around” in Clinton. Angela then dropped Rob off at the Shafer home around 10:00 PM to babysit his younger brother, planning to meet up with him again later in the evening after his mother returned home.
Kyla and Angela spent the next 75 minutes or so cruising around downtown Clinton, but, by the time Angela dropped her off at about 11:15PM, she felt too tired to hang out with Rob again as planned. Because she did not have a home phone, she stopped to use a payphone in the parking lot of the now-defunct Food Barn on East Jefferson Street, a short distance from Clinton’s historic town square.
Sometime between 11:15 and 11:30 PM2 — one article says she swiped her credit card at the phone booth at exactly 11:23 PM — Angela called Rob’s home to let him know she was done for the night and was going to return home and go to bed. During their conversation, she mentioned that a man was circling the parking lot in a green pickup truck. She did not seem concerned until he pulled into the lot next to her car and walked into the booth next to her, apparently to use the phone. She began to describe the truck and its driver: a beat-up, late-model green Ford driven by a dirty, scruffy-looking man with glasses and long hair. He left the booth without making a call and returned to his truck, pulled out a flashlight, and began rummaging for something inside the vehicle. Reasoning that the other phone might be broken, Rob told her to ask if he needed to make a call, to which the man replied that he would try back later.3
It was odd, but not particularly alarming, so Rob and Angela changed the subject. Minutes later, he heard a scream and the sound of the phone hitting the side of the phone booth.
“I didn’t need to use the phone anyway,” said the unknown man before the line went dead.
Rob rushed out of the house and began driving north towards the Food Barn. On the way there, a pickup truck zipped past him and he heard Angela’s voice cry out, “Robbie!”
In his panic, Rob slammed his own truck into reverse and spun around to follow the pickup — a snap decision that seriously damaged his transmission. He followed it south on 2nd Street and was making a right turn onto Calvird Drive when the engine began to die, eventually giving out a little over a mile into the chase. He watched helplessly as the truck sped away with Angela in tow. He flagged down a passing motorist and told her to follow the truck, but she refused, instead giving him a ride to the police station to report the abduction around midnight.
The Investigation
“We all had the same reaction,” said Angela’s father, Chris Hammond. “I mean, your transmission goes out?”
Detectives agreed, interrogating Rob multiple times over the next few days. On April 11, FBI agents grilled him for five hours and subjected him to both a polygraph and voice stress test (both of which he passed).
However, Rob was soon cleared after their investigation turned up three witnesses who were able to corroborate his story. The woman who brought him to the police station said she saw the green pickup parked next to Angela’s Mustang. Two other young women who lived in nearby Calhoun, Missouri reported seeing her at the phone booth, standing near what they described as a green 1969 Ford pickup truck with a mural of a water scene on the rear window. They saw the driver lean back into his seat and recognized it as the same truck they had seen two nights earlier, driving slowly down Highway 52 south of Windsor. Mistaking Angela for a friend, they entered the parking lot to say hello, but quickly drove away when they got a closer look and realized they did not know her.
Besides having witnesses to confirm the existence of the green truck, Rob would have had less than an hour to murder his fiancé, dispose of her body and any evidence of foul play, and stage her abduction. And, while it may sound “too Hollywood” for his car to stall mid-pursuit, suddenly throwing your car into reverse is a move that can very easily damage the transmission. Angela’s mother and younger brother, Loren, have always believed in his innocence and have publicly defended him from accusations.
“I think it was natural that people wondered, ‘Did the boyfriend do it?’” Marsha said. “But my feeling was: I’d known the kid all his life, and I never doubted for a minute that he had anything to do with it.”
Combining all the witness statements, investigators began searching for a two-toned late 60s or early 70s Ford pickup truck with a white roof and possible damage to the front left fender. The upper half of the truck was painted light green and the lower half dark green, with the colors separated by a chrome strip. One witness said the license plate number may have contained the letters “XY,” but it was covered in mud and rust, and she was unable to remember any other characters. A mural of a water scene — depicted on Unsolved Mysteries as a fish jumping out of a pond — was plastered on the rear window.
The driver was a young white male between the ages of 20 and 35 with glasses, a beard, a mustache, and dark, collar-length hair. He may have been wearing a dark-colored baseball cap and overalls.
Investigators spent months tracking down about 1,600 trucks that fit the description and were registered in Missouri, but came up empty-handed. They concede that the description of the vehicle may not be totally accurate; although it is most commonly described as a 1968 to 1970 Ford pickup, in 2009, Sgt. Paul Abbott said it could be older and might not even be a Ford at all. It is also never explicitly stated that the truck had Missouri plates.
With Rob ruled out, investigators began to focus on a different theory: That Angela was the victim of a serial killer targeting young women in west-central Missouri.
At about 10:00PM on January 19, 1991, 42-year-old Trudy Jean Darby was closing up the K&D County Corners convenience store in Camden County when she noticed a suspicious-looking man standing outside. Out of precaution, she called her adult son, Waylon, and asked him to come help her close the store for the night. When he arrived just minutes later, both his mother and the $220 she normally left in the till for the morning crew were missing. Two days later, her body was found submerged in the Little Niangua River in neighboring Hickory County; she was nude and had been shot twice in the back of the head with a .38 caliber weapon.
On February 27, 30-year-old Cheryl Ann Kenney disappeared after closing LJ’s Quality Convenience Store shortly after 10:15 PM in Nevada, Vernon County, Missouri. Her car was found abandoned outside the locked building the next morning. The janitor said there was an unknown male customer still inside the store with Kenney when he left right before closing, and two people in the area reported hearing a scream at about the time she would have exited the building, but it is unclear if either of this things are related to her case.
Then, on April 4, Angela became the third woman to be abducted in west-central Missouri in under three months. Investigators met on multiple occasions to share notes and compare the three cases, but, while most tended to believe they were connected, it was impossible to say so with certainty. They investigated multiple reports of attempted abductions around Missouri — including a March 1991 abduction and May 1991 attempted kidnapping in Christian County, which were believed to be related to one another due to the similar suspect descriptions — but were unable to uncover any evidence tying them to any of the three missing women.
In summer 1991, authorities received a promising tip about a man who had been arrested for allegedly assaulting a teenaged girl in Stone County, Missouri and owned a 1969 Ford pickup that had recently been repainted from green to white. However, they were forced to drop him as a suspect when he was able to prove he was in California in 1991 and had repainted the truck months before Angela’s disappearance.4
On February 5, 1992, Unsolved Mysteries aired a segment about Angela’s case called “Dial A for Abduction.”5 The episode generated over 600 tips, prompting the Missouri Rural Crime Squad (which had briefly assisted in the early investigation) to reconvene for five days to help local authorities run down all the new leads. Within days of the episode airing, two residents of Gilmer, Texas reported seeing the green truck in their town on different dates, which led authorities to briefly investigate the possibility that Angela’s case was linked to the January 1992 abduction of 17-year-old Kelly Dae Wilson. However, they were unable to establish a connection, and none of the tips generated by the show panned out.
In March 1992, in a crime oddly similar to the murder of Trudy Darby, serial killer Kenneth McDuff abducted 22-year-old Melissa Northrup and stole $250 from the convenience store where she worked just south of Waco, Texas. He would be arrested about two months later in Kansas City, Missouri, after a coworker recognized him from a segment of America’s Most Wanted. He is believed to have committed at least nine murders in Texas between 1966 and 1992, and possibly more in other states.
Due to the Missouri connection, authorities wanted to question him in the cases of Trudy Darby, Cheryl Kenney, and Angela Hammond, but he refused to cooperate. Sergeant John Perry of the Kansas City Police Department said he tended to believe McDuff was not in the state at the time Darby and Kenney went missing, mainly because he was actively attending a technical school in Waco as late as February 1992. However, he would have already been living in Kansas City — about 75 miles northwest of Clinton — when Angela was abducted. A search of his apartment failed to uncover any evidence in their cases, and it is unknown if he is still considered a serious suspect in Angela’s disappearance.
In April 1993, detectives used cadaver dogs to search a 60-acre farm in Lafayette County, Missouri in response to persistent rumors that a former renter had helped bury Angela’s body and the green truck on the property. They had already discounted the tip after learning the man did not own a green truck and had a solid alibi for the night of Angela’s disappearance, but decided to put it to rest after an informant came forward with the same story in March 1993, followed by a local newspaper running a story about a psychic who supposedly spoke to Angela’s spirit and sensed clues when she visited the property. Predictably, they found nothing.
In the summer of 1994, a Missouri State Trooper received a tip that a 20-year-old man named Jess Rush had confessed to participating in the murder of Trudy Darby when he was just 15 years old. He also implicated his half-brother, 34-year-old Marvin Chaney, as the man who had shot her in the head and dumped her in the river. The investigation turned up two more people who Jess had confessed to, which led to him and Chaney being charged with kidnapping and first-degree murder on May 1, 1995.
While awaiting trial, Rush began speaking to fellow inmate and “jailhouse lawyer” Edward Thomas in hopes that he could help him beat the charges. Over the course of multiple conversations and 13 handwritten letters, he described how he, Chaney, and at least one other man (who has never faced charges) abducted Darby from the K&D convenience store and brought her to a barn, where they repeatedly beat and raped her before Chaney shot her once in the back of the head. She was then placed in the trunk of their car and driven to a spot along the Little Niangua River. When they realized she was still alive, Chaney shot her again and threw her into the water.
In six of the letters, Rush made vague, crass references to “them other bitchs [sic],” other women that he and Chaney supposedly raped and murdered. In one letter, he expressed relief that they had burned down the barn after killing Darby, destroying evidence of their other crimes.
“I’m glad they don’t know every thing [sic] else we did or I’d be on death row,” he wrote.
Rush and Chaney have never been charged with other murders, although they would remain the prime suspects in Angela’s case for years. Detectives were especially interested in a report that one of the men used to own a green truck that was destroyed sometime after her disappearance, but, by 2009, they had been almost completely ruled out for reasons not made public. In posts made to the Sitcoms Online forum in 2009, Loren wrote that he was never totally convinced of their guilt, and said authorities were making a renewed effort to follow up on leads that had previously been set aside under the assumption that Rush and Chaney were the perpetrators.
One name that has more recently come up in Angela’s case is Larry Hall, a suspected serial killer who is serving a life sentence for the murder of 15-year-old Jessica Roach in 1993. Hall claims to have killed upwards of 35 women, five of them in Missouri. Christopher Martin, who authored a book about Hall in 2010, believes that he was responsible for Angela’s murder because of his resemblance to the composite sketch, skill in hiding his victims’ bodies, and his claim that he abducted two of his victims from small towns in Missouri (which would fit Angela’s description). However, there is no solid evidence to link Hall to her disappearance.
The most recent update came in 2009, when investigators revealed that they now had DNA after re-processing evidence in Angela’s case. There have been no significant developments in the years since.
There have been even fewer updates in Cheryl Kenney’s case. Her son has expressed frustration with the police investigation into her disappearance, and believes that someone closer to home was responsible for her presumed murder. Authorities now believe it is unlikely that her case is connected to Angela’s.
Angela’s disappearance has devastated her family. Rob, having lost both his fiancé and his unborn child, took the loss especially hard.
“Rob blamed himself for it because he always told her he’d be there to take care of her,” Marsha said in 1992. “And he tried. He did everything that could be done. Nobody blames him, but I think he thinks that people blame him.”
Two months after Angela disappeared, Rob joined the National Guard and began training in Fort Eustis, Virginia. He is now in his late 40s and has children of his own, and continues to stay in touch with Angela’s family, most of whom still live in the area and continue to hold out hope that she and her baby will be found. No one has ever been charged in her disappearance, and her case remains unsolved to this day.

2020.04.28 16:21 TheJvandy A guide to Real Estate's Discography

Realized a lot of artist-oriented subs usually have some sort of guide to the artist's discography, so I figured I would do that for this one. I've included all the music that has had an official release by the band, as well as the music of the individual band members as they don't fall too far from the music of the band itself. I've also tried to keep a running tab of who worked on which albums, as the band has had some changes in its lineup and there is a lot of overlap in the side-projects of the individual band members as well. I did a fair bit of research to find everything here, but please let me know if I've missed anything and I will add it to the list!

2020.04.28 15:57 arne-b Danish National Championships Postponed Indefinitely

From Danish TV2
There'll not be crowned a Danish National Champion in road cycling in june. Danmarks Cykle Union (The National Federation), DCU, informs to Horsens Folkeblad that the championship has been postponed indefinitely, due to fear of spread of coronavirus. TV2 Sport has been informed of the same.
''There has been a lot of uncertainty about having groups of 500 people og we have choosen to postpone DM (National Championship). We don't want to be a reason for further spread. We follow all the guidelines from the authoritis'' says the chairman of DCU, Henrik Jess Jensen.
DM should've been raced in Give from the 18th to the 21st of June.
UCI has suggested multiple countries to hold National Championships from the 20th to the 22nd of August, but DCU has not decided if that is the plan.
The Netherlands, Germany and Belgium har already declined to hold National Championsips on those dates.
The decision to postpone DM has been taken within the last couple of weeks, earlier in April it still the plan to hold the championships on the original dates.
''The reason we are keeping the original dates is, that the August dates are just as uncertain, when we've a ban on larger gatherings to and including august'' said Martin Elleberg Petersen, director of DCU, on the 17th of April.
Last year Michael Mørkøv won his 3rd national title.

2020.04.21 08:22 Alexis_Luthor Deep Dive - "The Professionals" - *SPOILERS*

*SPOILERS AHEAD FOR "THE PROFESSIONALS"* A lot happened in the latest ep of PSON, “The Professionals.” As soon as Malcolm walks into the station and everyone’s staring at him, you know something bad happened. Plus, Gil was drinking. During the day.
So, Eve’s dead, that’s a bummer. We also miss getting two episodes of the show due to the virus, so who knows what those two episodes contained. What we have to work with is a seemingly all-powerful Nick Endicott who promised Whitly in 1999 that he’d…sleep with…Jessica and destroy his family if he ever reneged on their agreement. He’s made good on the first point and is working on the second.
It is my theory that when Malcolm went to “interview” Eddie, the man in the room wasn’t even Eddie. If the team were smart and trying to intercept Nick Endicott’s attempt at framing Malcolm…they would have a bandaged man sent to the hospital – have Malcolm show up with orders from Gil to interview him (which is weird bc he’s a profiler, but whatever). They’ve already got the assassin in their pocket. She goes to Endicott, tells him she killed Eddie and planted evidence after Malcolm’s visit. Voila. Nick thinks he’s got the upper hand.
The team has to keep Malcolm in the dark, to make everything look believable. But notice, at the end of the ep, Dani is looking upward. As if searching for cameras or something. Eve’s place had been spied upon and I think the team hoped that Malcolm’s place was bugged as well so that Nick would get the confirmation he sought. Malcolm gives an amazing ‘shocked’ performance, because it’s not a performance. He really thinks he’s being arrested. Although, if you watch his face carefully, you watch his expression shift to something…else. Less shocked and more… ‘aha, I know what you’re doing here.’
Maybe he’s safer in the clink than anywhere else at the moment – at least until Nick is…taken care of. But the promos for the next ep indicate that he’s not in jail.
Speaking of “taken care of…” as soon as it’s mentioned that Mr. David was sick, alarm bells went off in my head. It was nice to see Martin ‘caring’ about his ol’ pal, and even nicer to hear him hiss at Eddie that he’s, “not like other prisoners.” Is Mr. David still alive? Did Nick kill him?
Now we know that Martin’s cushy existence behind bars is because of Nick. But at what cost? The way Endicott threatened Martin…talked down to him…offered him his little rug. I would say that Martin is a…dominant…type. I think it’s killing him that Nick has infiltrated his family so thoroughly. That pent up rage is probably not doing good things for him, mentally. I think a lot of that rage comes out when he’s brutalizing Eddie.
The scene where Eddie tries to kill Martin was fantastic. Martin being choked…Malcolm unable to get into the cell. As he was being choked out, it was like Martin had all but given up until he heard Malcolm scream, “Dad!” It was a moment that so perfectly echoed that scene when Martin was in a coma. It was Bright who brought him back to the surface. Martin’s eyes snap open and he gets the upper hand, going into full kill mode, and all Malcolm can do is watch. I think Malcolm watches in both horror and fascination. This is the first time he’s really seen his father do real damage, revealing his animalistic nature in the most brutal fashion.
What’s just as shocking is the way that Martin attacks Eddie. He goes for the eye sockets, which is one of the ways he’d mentioned previously, to a collegiate Malcolm, how he could kill him. He tells Eddie, “this is for my boy,” and grins wildly at Malcolm as he does it. It’s like watching his sanity snap in real time. And Malcolm can’t pull his eyes away.
I think part of Malcolm…a part that he’d never admit to having…wasn’t too terribly upset by his father’s brutal treatment of Eddie. That is the man who killed Eve after all… The look on his face is more one of fascination than disgust. Despite not being >>as<< panicked as when Martin was being attacked, he still urges Martin to stop. JT pulls Martin off Eddie and Martin has this moment…it’s almost like he’d disassociated a bit. He almost has to come back to himself. Hmmmmm….
And poor Gil and Jessica, talking about Malcolm – drinking – reconnecting. Their night had been going well. Jessica is right, she sure can pick ‘em. And to find out that she did have a history with Gil is beyond satisfying and something I think we all suspected. But to hear that she had turned him away – made him think he wasn’t good enough for her – that was brutal. Poor Gil. Still, he got to have his life with Jackie. And now he gets Jessica. Or does he?
Boy…what a time for Martin. He lost Jess both to his enemy Endicott, and to his enemy Arroyo. That rage will really boil when he hears about Gil. He already fears that he’s lost his boy to the lieutenant and now his ex? Ouch.
We get that lovely kiss between Gil and Jess and several other incredible moments with the rest of the team.
Ainsley puts herself in danger as she tries to investigate Nick. But part of me wonders…if she’ll be the one to kill him. I think Martin went after the wrong kid to try to convince to be a killer. If I had to put my money on it, I’d see her killing someone before Malcolm would. Then again, he did stabby stabby his very own daddy daddy but I think the reasons behind that were more complicated than – well, he’s a killer. I digress.
And poor Eve. No wonder Malcolm is haunted by her specter. In a way, it is because of his family that both she and her sister are dead. She had just begun to taste hope, had just renewed her spark, and boom – her life was snuffed out. I think Malcolm’s psyche is more fragile than ever as a result… How many ghosts can haunt him before he cracks apart entirely?
And what of Nick’s fury? What happens when he finds out Jess has moved on to Gil? When she says “no,” to him? Eeeeek. Martin is the big, bad predator, but he can’t do much protecting from behind bars. And judging from the ‘upcoming ep’ scenes, there’s a bounty on Martin’s head. He’s going to be in gen pop – all of his cushy privileges bestowed upon him by Endicott revoked. There is a prison free-for-all in the promo for the finale so I still hold out hope that Martin could manage a jailbreak, or at least a chance at staying alive.
Tangent --- If Martin does stay alive (which he better), how would his dynamic with the team be altered now that he’s a ‘regular’ prisoner? No more private room? No more desk and books and surgical consulting? No more Mr. David, lion nature specials, and extensive private phone time? His own sanity would probably begin to splinter. Maybe his work/cooperation with the NYPD and surgical consultations would be enough to get him some old comforts back? As much as Malcolm professes to hate him (and does hate him), I don’t think he’d like these changes for Martin either (because part of him, also begrudgingly loves him). Perhaps he himself could rescue Martin from the lost privileges? After all, is it really a GOOD IDEA to mix Martin with a bunch of other prisoners? He is a puppet master, a mastermind. So maybe Mal gets him his old existence back. Wouldn’t that be a twist? >evil grin<
What I need is Mal and Martin in the same prison. Malcolm protecting him from getting whacked while the team and Ainsley try to bring down Nick. But if Martin is urging Malcolm to kill Nick, that means that Malcolm’s free. No Prison!Malcolm for me unfortunately.
I think it’s also highly unlikely that Malcolm will kill Nick in the end.
Finally, I find it fascinating that Martin urges Malcolm to be the killer, rather than Ainsley, even though he’s talking to both of them. He points out that HE is a Whitly. Like…hello? So is she? (THIS REALLY BOLSTERS MY THEORY THAT SHE IS NOT MARTIN’S KID – that and the way he barely acknowledges her existence) Maybe she’ll take Nick out in the end? Who knows.
All I know is that the team is more kick-ass than ever. Malcolm improvising with that knife and ketchup? Perfection. Dani taking out the assassin. Beyond amazing. The director actually giving us a LIT SHOT OF TOM PAYNE’S FACE…YESSSSSS. There were plenty of wonderful moments in this ep that have me screaming at FOX to renew this show.
PS If Edrisa is the ultimate Malcolm Stan…HOW DID SHE NOT KNOW THAT HE HAD DATED EVE? LIKE…what kind of stalker are we here Edrisa? You can do better. Plus, no one from the team thought to CALL HER? Give her a heads up maybe? “Yo – Bright is coming in. He dated the dead girl. Act somber.” NOTHING. She just had no idea. This from the same woman who HAD MAL’S MEDICAL FILES after he got kidnapped? I just…. sigh…come on team. Come on Edrisa.

Человек прямоходящий оказался старым соседом австралопитеков в Южной Африке
Палеоантропологи провели самое точное на данный момент датирование недавних находок черепов из комплекса пещер Дримолен в Южной Африке. Возраст австралопитеков, людей и парантропов из Дримолена оказался, по сути, одинаковым: 1,95–2,04 миллиона лет. Получается, представители трех родов могли сосуществовать на территории Южной Африки. Кроме того, теперь представляется менее вероятным, что Australopithecus sediba был предком рода Homo. Об этом сообщается в Science.
Фрагмент черепа Homo erectus, найденного в комплексе пещер Дримолен в Южной Африке, и художественная реконструкция формы его недостающих частей. Индивид, которому принадлежали эти кости, умер в возрасте 2–3 лет. Andy Herries/Jesse Martin/Renaud Joannes-Boyau/PA
Находки из карстовых пещер Южной Африки бывает сложно точно датировать: слои, в которых они расположены, не всегда лежат в соответствии со своим возрастом, и процессы эрозии могут искажать картину. В Восточной Африке местонахождения останков сложены другими породами, и там эрозия не играет такой большой роли. Кроме того, южноафриканские находки гоминид часто фрагментированы, их относят к разным родам и видам. Поэтому соотнести возраст и положение на филогенетическом древе ископаемых австралопитеков, людей и парантропов Южной и Восточной Африки сложно.
Большой коллектив исследователей из нескольких стран во главе с сотрудником австралийского Университета Ла Троба Энди Херрисом (Andy I. R. Herries) датировал новые находки из комплекса пещер Дримолен и породы, которые их окружали. Для этого они воспользовались уран-свинцовым методом (возраст определяется по тому, сколько урана претерпело распад и перешло в свинец), методом электронного спинового резонанса и палеомагнетизма(исследуются параметры магнитного поля Земли, «записанные» в горных породах).
Фрагменты черепов, получившие наименования DNH 134 и DNH 152, отнесли к виду человек прямоходящий (Homo erectus) и парантроп массивный (Paranthropus robustus) соответственно. Их обладатели были живы незадолго до смены полярности геомагнитного поля, о которой известно благодаря исследованиям восточноафриканских (олдувайских) стоянок. Она произошла около 1,95 миллиона лет назад. Возраст DNH 134 и DNH 152 определили в 1,95–2,04 миллиона лет.
Примерно тогда же в комплексе пещер Стеркфонтейн, который расположен всего в нескольких километрах от Дримолена, жили африканские австралопитеки. Получается, что представители трех родов гоминид могли сосуществовать около двух миллионов лет назад. Ранее уже выдвигались предположения, что 1,8–2,3 миллиона лет назад люди и парантропы мигрировали в Южную Африку и занимали там стоянки, на которых ранее размещались австралопитеки.
Новые данные этому не противоречат, но снижают вероятность того, что австралопитек седиба дал начало роду Homo. Это предположение нельзя считать верным, если не существует южноафриканских находок Australopithecus sediba более древних, чем находки Homo в той же местности. Теперь же, с данными о возрасте и видовой принадлежности DNH 134, получается, что останки Homo erectusв Южной Африке древнее, чем останки A. sediba, которым 1,98 миллиона лет.
Кроме того, DNH 134 на 100–150 тысяч лет больше, чем самым старым ранее известным останкам эректусов (из Дманиси). Получается, этот вид древнее, чем считалось ранее.

2020.03.24 13:12 Number333 Who should the Dolphins take in the 2020 NFL Draft? (Number333 Breakdown - Offense)

MY HISTORY (BONAFIDES)
Sorry if putting my user in the title is ego-centric, I just love draft stuff. Here's my history in terms of wants/predictions with the Dolphins.
2017 NFL Draft - Pick #22. I wanted Forrest Lamp. He has been INCREDIBLY injured only playing 9 games in 3 years with the Chargers. I hated the idea of taking Taco Charlton. He got taken in the 1st by Dallas, got cut, and signed to us (lol was our leading sacker this past year with 5). I also thought we may take Jarrad Davis out of Florida who went to Detroit. Lions fans are disappointed with him and think he's bust. We ended up taking DE Charles Harris. The conclusion? You don't know shit, I don't know shit, and the Dolphins FO back then didn't know shit. Should have taken TJ Watt I guess.
2018 NFL Draft - Pick #11. I really liked Lamar Jackson. This was my snippet on the QBs. Fact check it yourself.
The Quarterbacks: They are the hoopla and the focus of everyones attention this year. I would say 5 Top-Tier guys in Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Baker Mayfield, Lamar Jackson, and Josh Allen. In terms of my favorite of those 5, I have to go with Mayfield and Jackson. I LOVED Watson last year because he was a winner in college and had the "it" factor and I see a lot of that in Baker. Think he has definite boom or bust potential. I also really like Lamar Jackson because of the pure athleticism and feel like Gase could really work with him if he likes him(though I haven't heard much buzz involving him) After that, very meh on Darnold and Rosen terrifies me not because he's smart but Jimmy Clausen vibes. I would HATE Josh Allen because my god does he look like an obvious bust ala Blaine Gabbert.
I stand by almost every single comment I made there. I'm meh on Darnold, don't think Rosen is good, and while Josh Allen made the playoffs with Buffalo I still don't think he's leading them very far. I LOOOOOOOOOVED Roquan Smith out of Georgia. On the Bears post when they drafted him I said he had Defensive Player of the Year potential. He had injury issues this past year with a torn pectoral and got into a car crash a few months ago. He's been solid, but not game-breaking like I'd thought he'd be. I also loved Minkah (like everybody else in that draft post) and would be elated if we took him. We did! and hah... that worked out didn't it fellas?
2019 NFL Draft - Pick #13. It wasn't happening just because we won one too many games but I loved Ed Oliver as a DT. He made the All-Rookie team with Buffalo. I also liked Jonah Williams the OT the Bengals took despite it being boring, he got hurt in practice and didn't play a single down his rookie year. I did hit on us taking Christian Wilkins as a realistic option - he was alright I'd say. He had that stupid ejection on like the 4th play of the game, but let's hope with some actual DEs in Shaq Lawson and Ogbah along with Godchaux he can be more of an impact player next year. I was down on every QB except for Kyler Murray as well.
CONCLUSION? I'm not great at this but I have fun doing it. Take a trip if you're bored and you can hear a wild man's ramblings due to COVID-19 baby!
QUARTERBACKS
Tua Obsessed - Tua Tagovailoa is the end all be all for me. I like him more than Burrow, I think he'll be a better QB at the next level than Burrow, and I've felt this way for well over a year when I said I thought Tua would be viewed as an Andrew Luck-level prospect by the time the draft comes around. He is not without his flaws - specifically durability. I think it'd be unrealistic to expect 16 games a year from him for 10+ seasons. But I'd rather have him relatively healthy (Think Carson Wentz) over Herbert/Love by a mile. That's how good I think he is, and I think that the Dolphins contingency against him really shouldn't ever question Daunte Culpepper over Drew Brees if they're trepidatious over his injury history. It's just one throw but this absolute beauty late vs LSU... All I'm saying is a hobbled 60-70% Tua looked better than Trevor Lawrence did in the Championship Game. The absolute dream would be to get him with the #5 pick and not have to move up for him. I feel like our only real competition left at this point is the Chargers - I hope they stay put at #6, ride out Tyrod Taylor / fall in love with Herbert and I think we'll have one hell of a foundation moving forward.
Oh No, Tua's Gone... **** - So let's say Tua gets snatched by a team in front of us (Chargers, Raiders, Broncos... whoever really) and now we're left at the altar without a franchise QB. What's the next best alternative? Hard pass on Justin Herbert. I get that he has all the physical tools anybody could fall in love with - but I don't want to spend a Top 5 pick on an inconsistent gun-slinger just because everybody says he's the 3rd best QB prospect. I don't think he moves the needle as a QB. Maybe he'll be decent. But did we get rid of Tannehill to end up with another 5+ years of a Tannehill-middling QB? Don't think so. Jordan Love is a big-time project. Lots of raw stuff to like but from what I've read he has some awful habits he has to break before being ready at the next level. If we took him at #18 I wouldn't exactly love it since that's a high value pick you're using on a complete ? mark but I could see in the 2021 NFL Season us giving him some run. Still - prolly wouldn't be thrilled. After that, you're not really talking about 1st Rounders. Don't think Fromm will be very good. I like the idea of Hurts as a back-up, but in the 4th-5th Rounds and we already have Fitz/Rosen it doesn't really make sense. Eason's a JAG IMO. Shoutout to James Morgan from FIU for getting some draft buzz too.
TL;DR QBs - Give me Tua or give me death. If we draft Herbert, I will whine and bitch like I did when the Heat drafted Tyler Herro. Don't look up his draft post pls. I was in a bad place (still think Romeo Langford and Sekou will be good players tho). I'm not gonna pretend like I'm an idiot though, I called Josh Rosen not doing jack for us the second we traded for him.
RUNNING BACKS
J.K. Dobbins >>>>> D'Andre Swift - I can't fathom the love for Swift as the #1 RB. I think JK Dobbins is a great deal better, and I even like Jonathan Taylor more than Swift. In terms of how it pertains to the Dolphins, I know A LOT of people are down on drafting a RB at our #26 pick late in the 1st Round due to what just transpired with Todd Gurley and the history of 1st Round RBs getting paid big contracts and then not panning out... but JK Dobbins is a frigging baller. Has been since his Freshman year. It felt like vs Clemson he was good for 8+ yards every time they went to him. He does have more mileage on him than Swift but I love the idea of Dobbins being a great bailout option as a pass catching threat (since I don't understand how you could bet on our O-line being "good" given the last decade of performances). I'd love Dobbins 10x more at the start of the 2nd Round - but if we picked him at #26, I'd be quite happy.
Other RBs Later On - I really like Cam Akers. He failed to produce quite like Dalvin Cook but those FSU teams also took a down-turn in recent years. Also like Joshua Kelley out of UCLA. With the signing of Jordan Howard, I don't think we need to draft a mid-round RB. We've had some decent success with a 5th Rounder in Jay Ajayi, Drake as a 3rd Rounder has the Miami Miracle and was a nice change of pace back, and while Kalen Ballage was a gigantic disappointment last year as a 4th Rounder, he supposedly was doing well in camp and then none of that transitioned to gametime. I say roll with Howard, use Ballage here and there, and hope we have a preseason surprise standout (who remember the Orleans Darkwa games????)
TL;DR RBs - I think Dobbins is a lot better than Swift. Like as a late 1st, love as a 2nd. Akers is cool too. Not a huge need. Still expect us to draft at least one.
WIDE RECEIVERS
DVP / Preston / Hurns / Grant / Ford / Wilson, who tf else we need? - DeVante Parker emerged as the #1 WR in receiving yards in the AFC last year and blossomed with Fitzpatrick. He made Stephon Gilmore his son. He beasted on the Eagles in Mills/Darby. He became the AJ Green-like #1 WR we were waiting for when we took him in the 1st Round. Williams was a superstar in preseason, and while he had too many drops in the regular season he was our 2nd best WR by yards despite only playing in 8 games. His best game was in our 1st win vs the Jets. But even with his surprise emergence, I think we can 100% do with a high-end WR prospect. Think about it. Is 29-year old Allen Hurns a long-term commitment? Wilson flashed some 2018 ability but we can't seriously rely on him. Ford came on stronger as the season ended but his ceiling is limited if we're being honest. What I'm saying is, while this isn't an awful WR crew, a top WR wouldn't hurt and shouldn't be dismissed in favor of "DRAFT O-LINE MAN" just cuz it's O-lineman. We drafted Pouncey/Ju'Wuan/Tunsil and still had a bad O-line for the most part. It's not all about investing 1st Rounders.
Holy crap this WR class is stacked - Tua's boys in Jerry Jeudy and Henry Ruggs III are some of the top WRs. I think Jeudy is gonna be phenomenal, real hot take over here. If he's at pick #18 inexplicably, take his ass and don't look back. Same deal with CeeDee Lamb really - and I think he'd fit in better with our current WR crop given his RAC ability. I love Tee Higgins size but it's a duplicating skillset with DVP/Preston. Denzel Mims also tickles my fancy. If you want someone even later on in the draft, take a look at Quintez Cephus from Wisconsin. He has a wild history please be warned... accused of sexual assault, went through the whole ordeal, eventually found not guilty. We got Preston Williams undrafted due to his personality issues at Colorado. All I'm saying is in the 4th/5th Cephus could be a steal - all I hope for really is avoiding wasting assets trading up for a Leonte Carroo-tier WR.
TL;DR WRs - Jeudy/Lamb are must-haves if they're somehow there at pick #18 regardless of other needs. They won't be tho. We could absolutely use a higher end WR prospect to go with our crop of guys.
TIGHT ENDS
Let's GeSexy With It - Gesicki was our 2nd best pass catching option last year behind DVP. He made some incredible catches and showed vast improvement over his rookie season. Caught the game-winning touchdown Week #17 @ New England. Glad we're getting production out of a 2nd Rounder. So with him, Durham Smythe as another 4th Round asset that's a strictly blocking TE, I don't really see a strong need for a tight end. Our last few tight ends drafted haven't been great. We spent a 5th in 2014 on Arthur Lynch who did nothing for us. Dion Sims in the 4th in 2013 had that game-winning TD vs Atlanta and little else. I still have nightmares of spending a 3rd we got for Brandon Marshall on Michael Egnew. This is a weaker TE class without a stud like Hockenson last year. I don't think Randy Moss' son is gonna be very great at the next level. If I had to pick one, I like the other LSU TE - Stephen Sullivan, with a mid-round pick despite little production due to the fact LSU was just an over-whelmingly stacked team this past year.
TL;DR TEs - We don't need one. I could still see us taking one in the 4th - 6th rounds.
OFFENSIVE LINEMEN
I don't know if he's good, but he plays the position we need! - This happens too often when people talk about fixing the O-line. It's always been an issue on here. People say just draft 5 offensive linemen in the draft and that'll fix it. Sure, how far back do I have to take you to make you realize dumping draft assets on a position doesn't work? Hell, let's do it!
That's the top 5 rounds worth of drafting of O-linemen for Miami in a DECADE. That's 3 1st rounders! Year after year we invested... and with what to show for it? All I'm saying is, be careful what you ask for. I'd love an Andrew Thomas at #18. Mekhi Becton and Jedrick Willis are literal goliaths. But... I'm not going to pretend like I know what the hell I'm watching/grading when it comes to O-linemen. If you go through the draft posts of those players, you'll see all of us get excited about our O-line FINALLY being fixed. The NFL doesn't work that way. You can't just dump resources into an area and win. There needs to be chemistry, proper development, etc... I'd like one in the 2nd Round at minimum to help Ereck Flowers, Ted Karras, and Jesse Davis - but I can't give props for a pick until I see how we do in the regular season. That's all I know about offensive linemen.
TL;DR O-linemen - I can't pretend to know what's good. If we draft 3 O-linemen with some of our Top 70 picks, I still won't be thrilled and think we fixed it. Look how many of our top-tier linemen even dating back to Jake Long just constantly kept getting hurt. We did that for a decade and it didn't. I know this is a different regime but still... be cautious when it comes to celebrating guys nobody really watches when the game is going on.
THIS IS SO LONG IM NOT GONNA READ IT JUST GIVE IT TO ME HOT AND FAST
Players I'd Love To See Us Take 1st Round: Tua Tagovailoa, Jerry Jeudy, CeeDee Lamb, Andrew Thomas, JK Dobbins, Jedrick Willis
Players I'd Hate To See Us Take 1st Round: Justin Herbert, D'Andre Swift, Henry Ruggs III, if we pass on Tua I'ma lose my shit
Sorry if this was a little heavy on 1st Rounders, but with the 3 we have I can't help but lean into them. Defense is next!
