Well we can all agree that it's time for some football and pouncey needs to distance himself from any "off the field distractions"
But seriously.... I want my football Sundays back!

Sgt. Hernandez: "We need them to come forward & speak to invest. We've been anxiously awaiting that since they made the allegations on Sat."
One reason no charges have been filed, per MBPD: Neither the victims nor witnesses have come in to make a statement since night of incident.
Since this thread is 14 pages deep I don't feel bad about adding to it:
as phillyesq wrote.... it's really time for TC to start.......Subject: What's the difference between an opinion and a judgment?
You've all heard it at some time from your kids or a rebelling friend: "Don't judge me!"
But often we feel like we were just sharing an opinion and didn't intend to judge this other person at all. So really, what's the difference between an opinion and a judgment?
I considered that a judgment is a value statement that aims at having a normative effect and an opinion is merely a value statement. E.g., a judgment attempts to provide a particular or general rule whereas an opinion merely reflects what we think of a particular situation.
Nevertheless, this doesn't quite seem a workable distinction in practice due to our habit of inferring things.
If I say "I hate Jody" we can infer I also don't want to see her. So what I seem to be saying "I hate Jody and therefore I shouldn't see her". However, when I say "I don't really like Jody", I'm rather ambiguous about seeing her. A person can't really infer one way or another, so the inference would be something like: "I don't really like Jody so maybe I should/shouldn't see her".
Often when we speak though, we do not have any intention to also mean the inference but how can anybody know?
Consider for instance, the following two conversations.
Jody opens up the freezer and a big jug of Ben & Jerry's is at the front. Jack, her son, exclaims: "God, I looovvveeee chunky monkey!" We can be relatively certain that he's suggesting to have some now.
Jody is speaking with her friend Jill: "Yesterday I had Ben & Jerry's and it was absolutely lovely". Jill replies: "God, I looovvveeee chunky monkey!" We can be relatively certain that she's not suggesting to have some now.
So my approach to the difference between judgment and opinion doesn't seem very helpful at all. What would you suggest?
