  1. 2017-18 NBA: FIRST HALF

    It amazes me that a board full of wrestling fans all seem to hate Lavar working everyone like the top heel in the L.A. territory.
  2. 2017 NFL: WEEK SEVEN

    I don't think anyone has said that he shouldn't have been ejected, and shouldn't be suspended. It is just that he tends to play by his own set of rules and his notgiveafuckitis is delightful to watch. He got thrown out of a game and decided to go hang out in the crowd with fans. It is so insane it is charming.
  3. Sexual Assault and Harassment in Hollywood

    You don't have to bring it up with the offenders. Bringing it up with the HR representative is enough legally. If he told anyone in management it is their legal responsibility to investigate the situation.

    If Vitor goes to Bellator and comes back looking like TRTitor, I don't know how he gets a license. He looked like someone's "used to be in shape" uncle in his last fight. I really hope we don't tolerate him coming back looking like an action figure.
  5. Sexual Assault and Harassment in Hollywood

    Yeah, your situation definitely falls into the realm of harassment. It is basically a clear cut example of creating a hostile working environment. The harassment training I did was really informative, because some things you would assume were harassment aren't, but some of the things you don't assume are harassment are not. For instance, if you ask a coworker out on a date that isn't harassment. If you insinuate that their career will be affected by their decision is harassment. Another thing you should be wary of is that you can be guilty of harassment outside of work. If you get sloppy drunk and start playing grab ass with your coworker at another coworker's house party, that can be considered harassment. The main thing you have to remember is a lot of this stuff has to be part of a pattern of behavior. If you ask your coworker out and she says no, you are good. If you treat her hostilely, or stare at her suggestively, or continually hit on her afterwards, you have a problem. This is where nate's problem comes into play. Those women displayed a pattern of behavior that made you feel uncomfortable, and them insisting that you participate in their social events that make you uncomfortable is blatant harassment. Them treating you negatively after declining to eat lunch with them is pretty much the definition of a hostile work environment. HR shouldn't support that behavior, because that is basically a lawsuit waiting to happen.
  6. Sexual Assault and Harassment in Hollywood

    It all started with her husband having dental work done, and how much dental work sucks. Then it went to how much MRIs suck. Then she looked at us and said, "You know what really sucks? A mammogram." Then she went on and on simulating how the machine smashes a breast with her hands, and me and my coworker walked funnily back to our desks wondering how that just happened.
  7. Sexual Assault and Harassment in Hollywood

    This is something that happened at my job yesterday. We had to do a sexual harassment course online, and about 3 minutes after I finished one of my coworkers decided to give a graphic demonstration on how a mammogram machine works. This woman stood in the kitchen squeezing her boob over and over again as I was thinking, this is exactly the type of behavior that they just warned us about.
  8. 2017 The Stuff About Sports Media Thread

    From what I understand the people behind the scenes of Desus & Mero were the people behind the scenes on shows like Around the Horn and Highly Questionable. They are basically kissing cousins with ESPN.
  9. 2017-18 NBA: FIRST HALF

    For what it is worth, Swaggy P is an exceptional offensive talent. The problem is everything else about his game, personality, and life.
  10. 2017 VIDEO GAME CATCH-ALL THREAD

    The fact that we haven't got a decent Star Wars action game or a decent Star Wars RPG in about a decade is truly absurd.
  11. OCT 2017 TV DISCUSSION THREAD

    I watch everything on the DVR delay so I couldn't say. I do watch The Fresh Prince at lunch every day, and they show a car commercial that blares his entrance theme as soon as they turn the car on. Of all the songs on the planet, I don't know how or why they picked that one, because it has nothing to do with Cena or wrestling.

    Apparently the guy who plays Jughead on Riverdale is the kid from Big Daddy.
  13. 2017-2018 NCAA BASKETBALL SEASON

    We are arguing two different things. Here is my argument. Take the NCAA rulebook and throw it in a trashcan. Take Title IX and throw it in a trashcan. Take any other rule that refuses to pay the people who generate the money in a billion dollar industry and throw it in a trashcan. Now light that trashcan on fire. Start making the new rules about how to pay the players like none of the old rules exist, because they are a raging bonfire of bullshit.
  14. Sexual Assault and Harassment in Hollywood

    Is it possible that you work with a sociopathic woman who lives to ruin lives and careers of men? Yes, but those women are few and far between. There are far more lecherous dudes making women feel unsafe in the workplace than women who decide to falsely accuse men for sexual harassment. This is pure nonsense. That dude was demanding sexual favors from women for years. That is a much bigger problem than the slim possibility that some woman decides to lie about being sexually harassed.
  15. 2017-2018 NCAA BASKETBALL SEASON

    If you work for Microsoft, should it matter how much someone gets paid at Walmart? The rower in Rhode Island may be the best in the world at what they do, but what they do doesn't actually make any money. The basketball team at Kentucky makes millions, and the only reason they make that money is because they consistently get the best players. The players are what generate the income, but they don't see a dime of the money. There is no reason whatsoever why college basketball is even necessary. Pay them however you want, just pay them. If there is a contract system, I'm cool with it. If they abolish the stupid, 1-year before they declare for the draft rule, I'm fine with that too. Anything that stops people from getting paid for the millions of dollars they generate is wrong, and needs to be fixed. I honestly don't care how they fix it. We are supposed to live in a free market society. These kids aren't doing anything illegal or immoral, they are playing a sport at a very high level. There is no reason they shouldn't be paid other than the notion of amateurism which only exists to exploit people for profit.
