There is no one better than me who can empathize with him, so lI'm confident I can organize this case in the best way. The day I was released from London was Feb. 20th, and Rascal on the 21st. When I came to Gladiators, there was a 3 day break. The first thing I felt coming here was the issue everyone had talked about culture difference. I felt that the majority of the players had low work ethic regarding this job. Of course, not anymore. But when I first came here thinking ' will get this team to a higher rank and improve my value to my eyes the teammates were not practicing despite their bad performance in stage 1.

I told him "I really want to improve this team and get us higher in the rankings, but they don't seem to have the mentality to try harder. If this goes on, I don't think I can keep up." And he listened. He gathered all the LAG players in one spot had a discussion, and told the players that they needed to make the proper atmosphere for Fissure, and then we can do better next stage. Of course, English was really hard for me. I usually almost never get triggered in scrims but I think I got frustrated for the first time during scrims in LAG due to English. I thought l was going crazy. How do I make specific orders in another language? I knew we could win with this shotcall of mine, but I couldn't convey it. So in the beginning I fought with the LAG players a lot, and naturally we apologized to each other for whatever we did. Since then we're really doing well and we have a good atmosphere. I think this is where we can see the difference between Dallas and Gladiators There is no one who can connect the Korean and English players in the game. We have Bischu. I talk to him in Korean and he translates it for me. Rascal must have been in the same situation, I can imagine how frustrated he had been. If I didn't have Bischu I would probably be in the news today as well. "Farewell to Fissure (1/2) 6 167 261 I'm sure that Rascal had fights with his team regarding that because that's exactly what I went through. But I apologized to my teammates after, and they did too. If you look at our recent matches we hugged when winning, and I love my team. I don't think Rascal was able to make that environment yet The language barrier made it hard for Rascal and the team to understand each other and he couldn't endure from that frustration. In the article it says "Rascal avoided communication." No, this is not the case. Rascal does want to communicate, but what can he do? He can't speak English. No one can translate for him in-game. I think Rascal got distressed because of that. I would have done the same As for EFFECT, He was with Envyus members since APEX. Rascal was in Dallas for only a month. The period is incomparable. I had been upset because of this issue as well and got triggered during scrims. When you really want to say something and you can't because of the language it is really, really frustrating. Then the coaches come to me and ask Why aren't you being active and more talkative in scrims??". I WANT TO. BUT I CAN'T. Do you know how they had replied to that? "Try harder". Even they can't solve this issue. Thankfully I became better because Bischu managed to alleviate this problem for us in-game. It's thanks to him that I am remaining here. Hey Daemin, you feel that too right? Having to learn Chinese to do comms. But what can you do? You only have to tray harder. It's the same for every player who needs to learn another language to adapt. I'm saying this because I'm afraid Rascal's reputation might be damaged when moving to another team Rascal doesn't have bad mentality or personality. The language barrier problem is that hard to solve. I've been in the same team as Rascal. He does not avoid communication he always tries to talk. It's just really hard to solve. In my opinion Bischu's player value will be very high next season. I am confident maybe somewhere below Jjonak and Carpe. Why? A lot of teams will want bilingual players. There will certainly be many teams who need that next season. I heard that Bischu already had a lot of offers (due to his ability). On top of that his personality is amazing. If he gets his mechanical skill to that level? His value will be on par with Jionak & Carpe. He lived overseas since he was young So yeah I wanted to say this, because this kind of news can be misunderstood very easily."

Af, Basketball, and Bless Up: My girlfriend made me go with her to the flower shop. Wasn't thrilled until this dude showed up and sat in front of me. Reddit u/carl gordon jenkins @DrSmashlove Y’all know I don’t really obsess over sports but last night I seent a miracle. Vikings were losing to the Saints with 10 seconds left. A lot was riding on this game because the winner would go to the NFC Championship. Everyone thought the Saints had it in the bag. Case Keenum, the QB for the Vikings, throws a pass and it’s caught by a young brother named Stefon Diggs. When Diggs gets the ball, it’s five seconds left. In this situation, the receiver (Diggs) is suppose to immeejally run out of bounds so the Vikings could kick a field goal. Keenum yells “GET OUT OF BOUNDS!” Coach Mike Zimmer - only yards away - is yelling at Diggs: “GET OUT OF BOUNDS!” Saints safety Marcus Williams came in at four seconds left to take out Diggs - a fraction of a second after the catch - and ... he misses. If he had connected, and Diggs had fallen, game over. But God had another plan. Diggs landed clean AF, turnt around, and ran in for a touchdown. This was the first time in NFL history that a playoff game ended on a game winning touchdown as time expired. That’s not a typo - what Diggs did has never happened, ever. Plainly, the young brother made history. In the post game interview, Diggs said: “all I can say is, give it to God. Because without him, nothing is possible and I wouldn’t be here so...DAMN THAT SH!T FEEL GOOD!” 😂 Before I continue let me provide a little background on Diggs’ life. Diggs’ father Aron was a former basketball player. Aron signed his son up for football at the ripe age of five and mentored him to become the best player in the state of Maryland and the second best in his position nationwide. But Aron never even seen his son play high school football because he died when Diggs was 14. Since then, Diggs has assumed the role of a father figure to both of his brothers, Trevon and Darez. Diggs himself lost his father figure but he still stepped up. Because he had to. Because that was God’s plan. Sometimes on the way to realizing God’s blessings, you endure hardship. I believe that these tests prepare u for the blessing. Minneapolis stand up. Maryland stand up. All of those who give it to God when we chalk up a win stand up! Bless up ❤️

Bad, College, and Driving: Michael Grant When I see my kids deal with school I really feel justified in dropping out myself. They come home depressed, angry and exhausted.

It's deeply fucked up. Its wrong Things are much worse today than they were when Katherine and I were kids. Many days we feel sick to our stomachs dropping our kids off at school. I feel I'm betraying them. And when they come home at the end of another day of enduring this asinine, soul-crushing system, I feel like I should hand them a drink. I'd sure as hell be having one.

Thank you Michael Grant for understanding

Guys can we get this to 1500? 

this man summed up everything i’ve been thinking for years

I used to go to a school where the principal purposely made sure we were assigned more homework than normal so that we would be “learning” instead of “on the streets acting like hooligans”. And they wonder why that entire city is known for their drug addicted rich kids.

This is so fucking important.
