    I hear the Lakers and the Pelicans are talking. This would be consistent with the maxim that says most big deals take place at the last minute. It would also explain the underlying reason for Davis’s timing on his trade demand, which happens to come when the Celtics are unable to bid. If it all comes together as planned, perhaps Randy’s Donuts will change to purple-and-gold.

    @ Best Protest: The change of venue for the trial of the four LAPD officers accused of using excessive force against Rodney King in 1991 never should have been allowed.
    Moving the case from Los Angeles to Simi Valley was a huge mistake. The decision was made out of concern that the officers couldn’t get a fair trial in L.A. because of the massive amount of pretrial publicity.
    But, the problem with Simi Valley back then was that it was a predominately white conservative community which was home to many current and retired law enforcement officers.
    The popular mood in Simi Valley was that the police basically could do no wrong, and the jurors selected from that area turned out to be heavily biased in favor of the officers who were on trial.
    So, unfortunately, one miscarriage of justice did lead to another. The 1980’s to mid-’90’s were a rough period for L.A.

    We’ve had several two sport stars such as BO & PRIME, so why not Sean McVay coaching the Rams and Trojans?

    Phantoms is a good name for Cathedral football. No matter how many transfers they bribe to go to their Chinatown school the team always disappears at big games.

    Plain and simple, the horrible O.J. verdict was payback for the horrible Rodney King verdict. Several of the Simpson panelists have admitted this….you can see their confessions on many YouTube clips. The act of letting Simpson go free was a far more powerful statement than anything done on one’s knees at the ballpark.

    @ Best Protest: You’re right; trial juries have an enormous amount of power. They have the power to either enforce justice, or to miscarry it.
    As I recall, some of the O.J. Simpson trial jurors were confounded by, and doubtful of, the DNA evidence that was a key element of the prosecution’s case against Simpson. (The use of DNA evidence was a rather new field in the mid-1990’s.)
    Also, in a memorable courtroom scene, Simpson did everything he could to ensure that one of the gloves used in the double murder “didn’t fit” when he was asked to put it on. His play-acting led to defense attorney Johnny Cochran’s famous statement to the jury: “If it doesn’t fit, you must acquit.”
    End of story.

    USC had some of their best recruits decommit. If USC doesn’t win next year everybody gets fired from their HC to the AD. It doesn’t look good for the “fight ons.” I just don’t see USC doing well.

    In this day and age of great unrest, what is the best way to achieve social change? I submit it is not through ballgame anthem kneeling or any such actions, it is through a little-known power all jurors possess: Jury Nullification. This happens when a jury decides that the law in a certain case is not fair, or that it shouldn’t be applied to a particular person.

    The O.J. Simpson jury used Jury Nullification to effectively say that they didn’t want the law to be applied against the defendant. To highlight the fact that jurors have this power, notice that their verdict stands, and that none of the panelists have been punished for their choice.

    Most people assume the only way to fight bad laws is to make congress pass new ones, or try to repeal others. I’m here to tell everyone that we the people are supposed to be the source of the laws, and so as jurors, we have the final say on the whether the existing laws are proper, and if so, whether they are being properly applied. Juries everywhere have the literal power to strike-down all manner of injustices as they see fit.

    #4 . That wasn’t football. RBs playing DE WRs playing DB. That may be common in high school football, but PROS! THAT WAS A FARCE. Maybe the Saints-Rams refs should have worked the game.
