  1. Player suing TCU once praised coaching, medical staff

    BY MAC ENGEL

    Former TCU wide receiver Kolby Listenbee once had great things to say about the people he is currently suing.

    Listenbee filed a lawsuit against TCU football coach Gary Patterson, the Big 12 conference and TCU for rushing him back to the field from injury that, he feels, has hurt his pro career.

    A pro career has seen him land on the practice squads of three NFL teams and play in zero NFL games. He's on a future's contract with the Indianapolis Colts.

  2. Track guy changed his mind I guess. (didn't click)
     
  3. You never know you are really hurt and need money until some lawyer tells you that are and do...

    Once again the lyrics of the Eagles “Get Over It” rings true...

    I turn on the tube and what do I see
    A whole lotta people cryin' "Don't blame me"
    They point their crooked little fingers at everybody else
    Spend all their time feelin' sorry for themselves
    Victim of this, victim of that
    Your momma's too thin; your daddy's too fat
    Get over it
    Get over it
    All this whinin' and cryin' and pitchin' a fit
    Get over it, get over it
    You say you haven't been the same since you had your little crash

    “But you might feel better if they gave you some cash

    The more I think about it, Old Billy was right
    Let's kill all the lawyers, kill 'em tonight
    You don't want to work; you want to live like a king
    But the big, bad world doesn't owe you a thing
    Get over it
    Get over it
    If you don't want to play, then you might as well split
    Get over it, get over it
    It's like going to confession every time I hear you speak
    You're makin' the most of your losin' streak
    Some call it sick, but I call it weak
    You drag it around like a ball and chain
    You wallow in the guilt; you wallow in the pain
    You wave it like a flag, you wear it like a crown
    Got your mind in the gutter, bringin' everybody down
    Complain about the present and blame it on the past
    I'd like to find your inner child and kick its little ass
    Get over it
    Get over it
    All this bitchin' and moanin' and pitchin' a fit
    Get over it, get over it
    Get over it
    Get over it
    It's gotta stop sometime, so why don't you quit
    Get over it, get over it
    Get over i

  4. Mac’s a little late to the party. That video appeared on KFC the dat this news broke...
     
  5. The essence of an ill-advised and blatant extortion attempt. ie.....'it doesn't pass the smell test'
     
  6. That’s gold. Lol
     
  7. Not to defend Listenbee or his lawyers, but I used to speak up for my first wife. It wasn't until later that I learned just how poorly I'd been treated. People can be confused, deluded, or just plain ignorant.

    Spoken like a true insurance adjuster making money off the misery of others.:)

    I'll see your Eagles and raise you one John Mortimer the Author of Rumpole of the Bailey.

    "Horace Rumpole: You know, it's a most extraordinary thing, my Learned Friend. We go through all the mumbo-jumbo, we put on the wig, and the gown, we mutter the ritual prayers, "If your Lordship pleases", "Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury", abracadabra, fee fie foe bloody fum. And just when everybody thinks you're going to produce the most ludicrously fake piece of cheesecloth evidence, there it is, clear as a bell! The truth! Don't you find it? You know, it's bloody scary sometimes, ha ha, but there it is, the truth. Naked and embarrassing!"
     
  9. The case is not an indictment of the legal profession, but rather that there is always someone out there that will take a case. Even, if it is smothered in weak sauce.

  10. Haven't read much on it, but is he represented by Saul Goodman?

  11. Shakespeare did write glowingly about lawyers. Do we really care what Don Henley thinks?
     
  12. Kill all the lawyers is glowing?

    No, we probably shouldn’t care what he says, but it doesn’t mean he wasn’t spot on. A stopped clock is even right twice a day.

  13. And yes, I know the outer was taken out of context, but the world seems want to prefer the phrase as is.

    Popularity polling has been sinking ever since...
     
  14. Yes, “kill all the lawyers” was glowing. It was a quote by a character who wanted to usurp the throne and thought he could do so by disrupting law and order. Killing the lawyers first was a recognition of their place as the front-line guardians of civility.
     
  15. I sat through a lecture by a Law School Dean who spent a good hour explaining to those of us gathered that what Shakespeare was saying was that to destroy the legal framework of a country, one had to exterminate it's guardians. The characters in 'Henry VI' who were speaking during that Act were the villains, and wished to plunder England while a weak and addlebrained King was on the throne. Thus, to eliminate the legal framework which prevented their acts, or, at least slowed them down, the lawyers would have to be eliminated.

    During this speech, I was sitting next to a man who had just endured a long ordeal with a fellow named Jim Lerach. The gentleman did not find much truth in the words of the Law Dean...

  16. See above.

    Times sure have changed...
     
  17. Meh. Pick a profession and I’ll give you examples why you should hate all of them. Don Henley was once arrested when the 16-year-old prostitute he hired overdosed on cocaine at his house, yet you seem OK with him.
     
  18. That must have been one boring-ass hour!
    Spit Blood~~<~< and scheiss baylor!
