Bio not provided
I've been a Blazer Season Ticket Holder for about 9 years, and I gave away my tickets for Game 6 Houston last year bc I was out of town for a weekend bachelor party. I was seriously considering showing up a few days late to the bachelor party just to see the game. The bachelor gave me a hard time about it, so I was a good friend and went to his party and gave up my tickets to my brother. We watched the game on TV that night and the highs were great, only to feel sick to my stomach the moment Chandler Parson's got that opportunistic put back to put Houston up. I felt sick and dejected, then .9 secs happened. Not only was that the highlight of my Blazer fandom (knocked off plenty of B Roy moments), I felt sick and dejected for not being there to witness Dame's coming out party to the rest of the NBA audience. Honestly the joy of seeing my Blazers go to the second round eclipsed the guilt I felt in not going to the game, but I will never again make that mistake as I now have #dametime scheduled on my alarm.

@Gunnin' for Shabazz it looks like crap.
@christopher_m you don't get a tax deduction for your rent bc the tax system favors people who get married have kids and owns homes.
The government incentivizes those things whether its fair or not bc they think those things will benefit our country. I don't plan on getting married soon or having kids soon, but I'm not going to hate on those people who get those tax breaks. Besides owning a house is beneficial to real estate employees, insurance agents, handymen, etc. Those are a few of the reasons the gov wants to encourage people to own.
@Tony K. @skywaker9 my small suggestion would be to end tax breaks for multiple children. Stop the deductions after one kid....maybe two. If you can afford 3+ kids then you should be able to do it on your own dime and not the taxpayers.
@christopher_m @blazeraddict curious as to why you would want to end that? The housing market is already unstable...why deincentivize it further?
@skywaker9 (David) no matter what Romney did....I'm sure you would complain sky. If he dodged taxes or paid too much. In the end it's the tax code that's the problem not him. Don't hate the player hate the game.
@southern oregon @skywaker9 (David) @christopher_m @annlyn it's not bullshit. Plenty of investors get their ass kicked when investing.

Pass first pg is one....and lunch pale carrying big is the third.
@Tony K. It's bc people stereotype white American players into three roles....and ammo doesn't fit the other two so they assume he is the three point shooting unathletic guy without paying any attention to his real game.

As much as I wanted dragic a few years ago....even in a best case scenario I can't picture dragic doing much to alter the course of this team without a second elite player. These guys are just stop gaps at best.

@christopher_m @TiMB one of the blazer broadcasting team mentioned that toronto would be the team to watch if there was a team that would overpay for nic's services.
2 years, 11 months ago on Why I would match a 12 million dollar offer sheet for Nicolas Batum
"Second, is it better to handsomely pay an excellent complementary player who can work with a ball-dominant star, or pay a guy who is a below-average “star” type like Rudy Gay who needs the ball to be effective but may not be good enough to be a first or second option on a team that wins anything?". That's a very interesting point...I have to say that line swayed me to change my opinion.
@TiMB @noBjustRyan I'll say that the blazers should have been aware of Greg's issues and considered how'd he react to the hiring if they really viewed him as a cornerstone. Bc even if the team didn't do anything malicious they got to out themselves in a position to make Greg happy in order to resign him if he did pan out.

Biased..prejudiced is a poor word choice
@TiMB @noBjustRyan I guess having several family members in the health care field as nurses and doctors makes me prejudiced but I don't think it's a prudent career move to violate patient confidentiality after spending 1/4 of your life in school and jeopardize future earnings.
@TiMB @philthyanimal @noBjustRyan usually is that people oftentimes project their inadequecies onto others. In Greg's case he clearly has had trust issues with people in the past and is projecting that onto this situation....I don't know the details but if I was the blazers I'd gladly cover this expense fr Greg bc it is a reasonable medical expense and Greg shouldn't have to pay out of pocket for it. Perhaps the blazes saw how much impact this particular doctor had and wanted to provide that service to all their employees. I see nothing wrong with that.
@noBjustRyan I don't see it as dumb...in the end dude is a professional and would keep his clients info confidential. Greg has some confidence and trust issues....all that speculation was baseless.
In regards to cost shifting....why should the league care about what's fair? They are making this decision according to what's best for them. If the players really wanted to make a difference then they could play overseas instead of in college.

@Norsktroll @jakesnake99 @philthyanimal This is so nerdy but cool http://guyspeed.com/dude-creates-fully-functional-iron-man-suit/
@Norsktroll That's cool but I would rather save 60 bucks and a cable in rather than use a dock.
@Norsktroll You see the super Mario mural on kick starter that is from pdx?
@Norsktroll You got a link for the dock?
@Norsktroll @Dan_tm @Snug_Lee There is no chrome on iPad...but if you download the google search app....it kinda bundles in all of googles products into the search app including a browser. However browser does not support flash
@Dan_tm @Snug_Lee I figured if I wasn't going to have 100% compatibility I might as well go with iPad since its 600 dollars cheaper. Plus I use one of those shitty cloud browsers that encode flash on their servers and stream it down to iPad, not perfect but usable
@Snug_Lee Plus there were times that flash wasn't playing nicely with MacBook air. I didn't like that an overpriced netbook that is supposed to play flash fine still had hiccups.
@Snug_Lee Lol cuz returned it for a ipad3. I actually like the iPad a lot...but every now and then would like to have a keyboard.
@Snug_Lee @jakesnake99 Captain America was the weakest guy....he was a bitch. Didn't do anything cool and was worthless....everyone else could fly or jump far. Capt america could only go by foot and was left out in the final battle scene when everyone did something meaningful except him. Plus him using that assault rifle totally cheapened his character to me.
