Because you repeated the same positions even after Ptc gave you examples to the contrary.

And yes, you didn't say to stop.

But you expressed a complete unwillingness (in my opinion) to even consider what Ptc was mentioning. You were ready with your canned responses.

I am surprised it wasn't referred to as human cockfighting...

If I did what you claim, pt did precisely the same. Once again, it takes two to tango, discuss, debate, etc.
That you 'blame' me only is not only inaccurate, but also very likely a reflection that your position on the subject of UFC is the same as pt's - and so you take 'his side', though we were both very obviously equally involved in the discussion/debate.

Now that I've had my fair opportunity at rebuttal after you initially addressed me, as you have now turned the discussion to be no longer about sport, which is the topic of this thread, but instead to be about ME and various methods of discussion/debate, I'd be willing to continue this with you via private messages if you wish to do so. I have no real desire to do so myself, and so will not initiate - but I will engage if you wish to.

F1 had a race in the US and it had a partnership with the NBA for the 75th Celebration. First one is the meme in case you can't tell the difference in the one with 3. Yes, in the undoctored photo, Shaq is taller than Lewis Hamilton standing on a podium.

And Hamilton is not short.
I once stood next to one of those cardboard cutouts of Shaq. He is truly a monster.

The Shaq thing was funny especially in that he rolled out in a vintage convertible.

PS - Serena was also at the race. She too is taller than Lewis (who is short, which I can say as someone who is diminutive in stature)

Hamilton is listed at 5'7". Diminutive or just short for you to decide :)

My knowledge of the interior of a race car is genuinely based off of Days of Thunder and little else, but I think racing is a bit like jockeys in horse racing where bigger and taller doesn't work great for fitting in the car and getting the fastest speed. I would guess given the style of the car, F1 would make this even more pronounced.

Indeed it helps, as any kilogram saved on a F1 means something.
But the cockpits of F1 cars are custom built for the driver. You will never see a 6'6" F1 driver, but it is not so dependant.

These legends in their own minds are a nuisance wherever they go. Everyone outside of their world doesn't find their entourages amusing.

The adjustment to inflation clarified it, I was very surprised initially to see Palmer and Nicklaus numbers.

Right next to this lovely chart above, they should post a chart like the ones below - and mention something about priorities...

I think the messes re vaccination surrounding Irving and Rodgers shows what an insulated world pro athletes live in. As children they're exempt from the rules that apply to others including siblings because they're "special", "talented", or whatever excuse is given to keep them out of the world of normal children and later adults. These same athletes wouldn't hesitate to inject themselves with anything that will ease pain before a game with no idea what is in the injections they're taking. It's always shocking to them when real world rules are suddenly applied to them.

I also wonder if there was a source for NFL fans to go to and check to see who the players are in the non vaccinated protocol?
