LOL. “Gaslighting” has such a fungible definition nowadays that I’m not even sure it’s worth using. Would accusing someone of “following (you) around from thread to thread” count, when that isn’t remotely the case?
In any event, I’d like to note for the record that:
- I didn’t even remember that it was you in that other thread and honestly didn’t even remember that discussion, and
- I’m not interested in bringing baggage over from any other thread into this one against forum rules, and
Don’t drag in your baggage from another thread. This can be a tough balancing act, because how we interact is often related to what we know about each other. But dragging down a discussion with an argument you’re hashing out elsewhere or that you had six months ago isn’t welcome. If you’re going to hold grudges, learn to have a polite discussion with someone you might dislike. See the previous rule.
I’m not interested in relitigating something in another thread here, nor am I trying to pull a fast one. Yes, I was both needling you (people do that to one another on this forum from time to time), but in so doing also trying to find out exactly where you were coming from in your previous posts.
Anyway, to bring things back on track, here’s the thing: I personally think it matters little whether Kareem Hunt missed when he kicked the girl, or that what some are interpreting as a hit to her was instead more of a shove or whatever.
And maybe that’s worth discussing. Maybe it isn’t.
I’m also happy that he doesn’t seem to do much, if any physical harm to the girl. And I’m aware that by her words and actions and presence that she appears to have been a major contributor to this situation. I understand all of those things. But in my opinion what he did should’ve gotten him a very stiff punishment, and it now appears that the NFL has yet another PR mess on their hands with regards to physical violence with women and how they investigate/handle that, and that makes for another discussion that may be worth having.
And to get to some football, I’m not sold on Spencer Ware being effective enough against a non-Oakland defense to be enough of a serious threat to plan for; I was hoping for the Chiefs to make a deep playoff run, but I’m not sure that this hasn’t seriously jeopardized that. I hope not!
