Chancellor Lee Adams will celebrate his 18th birthday on Thursday, November 16, 2017. Chancellor Lee is the son of former Carolina Panthers wide receiver Rae Carruth who is imprisoned for masterminding the murder of Chancellor Lee's mother Cherica Adams. Chancellor Lee was born prematurely and has cerebral palsy and permanent brain damage due to his traumatic birth.

This has my emotions running at full steam on many different levels right now. But the most important part of this story is Chancellor turning 18 years old.

Yeah, opel70 caught my meaning.

Looking through the myriad of NFL rules on when a play is declared dead, I don't see anything about "giving up on the play." The closest thing that comes to it is when the player with the ball slides feet first as if he's sliding into second base. Then the play is dead without needing to be touched by an opposing player.

And going back to what opel70 mentioned, this is completely on the defensive player for not merely reaching down with a single finger and touching Mr Hilton.

I know that in the NFL that a player with the ball is not down unless by contact, but isn't there some sort of rule of the play being whistled dead when the ball carrier gives up on the play?

Watch this to see what I am referring to (TY Hilton play from this past weekend)

Yes, BC is becoming a thorn in everyone's side in the ACC this season, but I also think it's partly due to Louisville, the Hoos, and FSU not playing good football right now.

This also kind of brings down NC State's successes this year as well. Maybe the Wolfpack team that lost to South Carolina really is who they are. /sigh /typical NC State fan

FoxSports "pivot to video" decision has cost them almost 90% of their audience.

FoxSports "pivot to video" decision has cost them almost 90% of their audience.

Is viewership really down, or are the numbers skewing down because people (especially the youngs) are consuming your content on other devices than the tee vee? I'm not talking about the sports channels' talking head shows, but more about the sportball competitions that they show.

I understand that the suits that run the networks want to be able to capture as many viewers as possible, no matter what devices they use to watch the content, but this shift to all video on the website is just terrible. I'm certainly with grum on this, I want to read content on a website, not watch some godawful Colin Chowder rant on autoplaying video on the website.

Who are the ad wizards that came up with this one?

Btw, excellent job in completely kicking everyone's ass last week, jj. The week's second place was still 20 points behind you and third place was 30 points behind. And if my math doesn't fail me, you beat poor ol' cixel by 72 points, which is really impressive since you scored only 58 points.

Permit? This is Florida. rcade is using the permit application to start the fire for the smoker.

As for the car: what is wrong with it? Have you tried turning it off and back on again? Does it have fuel in it? Have you checked the blinker fluid? If it's not topped off, the car won't start.

I don't like the look of that Hurricane Jose. He's just sitting out there in open waters, spinning around, biding his time until Irma clears out. I have a vacation on Hatteras Island next week and Jose might kill those plans, depending on which way he decides to track.
