Baseball, by far, is the best sport on the planet.

As stated in another thread, we agree on a lot, but not this. I will root for the Indians, and even go to a few games, but care for it far, far less than football and basketball.


Youngsters...

In time, it will become apparent to you. I have found that my appreciation of baseball has increased as I've grown a little older.

There's more to sport than fast breaks, dunks, bombs, crushing tackles and end zone theatrics. Baseball is cerebral, physical, metaphorical.

PH


by that logic, League of Legends would acutally be the best sport on the planet.

It certainly has a larger user base too =)


Uh... a sport requires you to at least get off the sofa and break an occasional sweat, g-man.

Wink

haha you've probably have never played video games at a competitive level before.

alot of these guys will hit the gym for 1-2 hours with a training regimen that includes almost an hour of cardio and repetitive lifting. The competitive teams will typcially hire nutritionists and have personal trainers on hand.

all of the korean teams during national championships look like they ran a marathon after the 30min-1hr long games!

this was last year, but the push really started in 2016 when the prize pools started going into the millions.

there were more people watching the league of legends championship last year then folks watching the world series and the nfl super bowl combined

Ah... but you would be wrong, grasshopper.

My complete freshman year's (considerable) social budget was generated as a video game master. I was the king of Pong at the student union. I bought more off-campus drinks and dinners using these skills than you might imagine in your wildest dreams. And, there were NO sofas involved. Just sticky floors and quarters.

actually, no.
I've settled lots of cases with releases that call for confidentiality. It is always at the request of the defendant. The defendant pays some money for the confidentiality provision. The defendant NEVER signs the agreement. Never.
not once.
Clearly, it is enforceable as long as the defendant does what it is supposed to do (even though not signed)...pay the $.

Right but can a person be sued for violating an NDA if they aren't telling the truth?

If we played a game of golf and I beat you so you paid me to sign a NDA to never say I beat you. Then I go and tell everyone you beat me, would that be a violation?

That would be a violation, but, don't worry. There is no way anyone would believe you if you said I beat you at golf.
Here is the deal:
The lawyer who represents Stormy is in it for the publicity. The agreement says that disputes must be arbitrated, so he files in court. Unless he is an idiot, he has to know that the absence of the signature on the paper on the part of the person paying the $, or the person on whose behalf the $ was paid, is unimportant.
He files in court to ask the court to declare the agreement void, and then advises his client to babble about the subject of the agreement while the case is pending.
Stormy: Fake name. Fake tits. Previously signed statements saying that they did not have sex, now says they did. Says she is not a victim, but complains about some unidentified person threatening her. A total phony.
The lawyer who paid the $130,000. Either he violated the gift tax laws by making this payment, or he violated campaign laws, or he violated the rules of professional responsibility by making a payment on behalf of
a client. If he actually paid with his own money, without the expectation of reimbursement, he is an idiot.

This is all that matters.

I don’t know what disciplinary bodies are like in US states but all of those actions would lead to a sanction here. A lawyer is an officer of the court and cannot break the law.

I have not read all the back and forth - 2 quick points -

1. It depends on what the NDA says - normally it would prevent any public disclosure about the subject period - so one could lie and still violate the agreement.

2. Not sure about your matters Irwin, but in commercial cases, non-disclosure confidentiality provisions of settlement agreements are normally signed by both parties and binding on both Plaintiff and Defendant
The purpose of the tax reform law (so they said) was to put more money into the hands of the average guy. The result of the trade war will be to remove that money from the hands of the average guy, by virtue of increased costs of consumer goods.

The President claims that he went to the Wharton School. He must have missed alot of classes.

I have no knowledge of the type Trump failed to sign, but I sign dozens of NDA’s every year and 7 just last week alone. As Jcock stated, all parties must sign and execute the type I’m familiar with.

Especially with a two-way where there are duties by both sides.

I think you're right, Rob. As I understand it, Trump held up her end to begin with.
