GET SOME FLOW

The Rumpole way.....

NFL WILD CARD WEEKEND

Cowpokes travel to Seattle to put an end to their revolting season. Take the Hawks, give the 3, get some Starbucks, and watch your winnings grow.

J..E…T…S.. travel to NE to play the Patriots. Master Belichick versus student Mangini. Like the boys in Green to keep it close. Pats could win the super bowl, or could choke. Bottom line is that the Pats miss those WR’s more than they would admit. J..E…T…S…


Giants take the bus to Philly. Surprising Eagles riding Jeff Garcia, who has been there and done that. Disappointing Giants watching Coughlin coach his last game as a Giant. Eli can’t do it alone. Giants always dangerous with Tiki Barber, but Eagles match up well. The spread is 7. Try and give 6.5 where you can find it. That might be the difference here.
Go to Pats, order a cheesteak "wit" (wit gets ya mushrooms, onions, and cheese wiz), and an Eagles win.

KC at INDY. KC a one trick pony. But what a pony in LJ. Indy has suspect run defense. Tony Dungy is an old Steeler DB. Would figure he would know a thing or two about defense. Indy is giving 6.5. Give the points.
Over/under is 51. Under under under.


SNEAK MONDAY NIGHT BCS PREVIEW:


Florida Gators could well win this thing. Take the 7.5 now. Watch which way the line moves. I think it could move down to 6. The middle is not the play here- the Gator money line is.
Remember, Rumpole told you first about this little upset in the making.


Early predication: Ravens beat Saints in Miami Super Bowl.

Calling any and all guest bloggers. I will be in trial and out of town next week. Want to pitch in? Let me know.

so i guess your identity is known to those who would sub for you, i thought no one knew who you were. the cross-examiner is not good at being cross-examined.

Anonymous said...

Sorry, Rump, but your argument that no one, not even the victims, can call Cholakis a jerk until he is convicted or pleads guilty, fails. Osama bin Laden has yet to be convicted by anything other than the court of public opinion. Does this mean we can't call him a jerk? Ditto for Ralph Arza. And Mel Gibson. Or what about Mark Foley? There are plenty of people who haven't been convicted of anything who are still fairly called jerks--or other choice expletives. We don't have to wait four years for the denouement of a criminal case to voice our outrage over a person's bad behavior, criminal or otherwise.

Rumpole marvels: My word are you good. You Figured that out all by yourself? Wow.

Sorry to burst your bubble sherlock, but I can invite people to be guest bloggers. all I need is their email address. I don't know them, they don't know me.

But keep pitching those guesses, a few more dozen years and you may even get close.

The reason my post is so angry is that you are implicitly calling me a liar when I have written in the past no one knows who I am.

I don't lie.

Rumpole is aka David Ranck. He just pretends to be a defense atty. Ranck has all the time in the world to sit and write on his computer- he has no friends what else would he be doing?

Anonymous said...

He's an excellent lawyer and cares about others.

He just doesn't sit around and gossip or randomly trash people the way you do. Get a life.

sorry to burst your bubble, but shuminer wouldnt last a day in anonymity. his ego is too large for that.

those who know him know that.

Gee, I've known David for about 10 years, I'll have to let him know about his reputation.

Someone said they just knew that Fingerhut was Horace.
I'm curious as to how that person came about with that. Fill me in.
I believe he could be. Any reasons as to why he wouldn't/couldn't be Rumpole?
I think alot of things point to him. Look at how rarely he is even mentioned.

Anonymous said...

Fingerhut is not a trial lawyer. Therefore, unless Rumpole is a lier, Rumpole is not Fingerhut.

John Galt said...

Fingerhut is not Rumps. This is obvious for a lot of reasons, but mostly because Scott could never be as succinct as Horace and because he would never write anything filled with the number of grammatical mistakes that Rumps makes every day. If you really want to know Rumps' identity, just ask me.

Anonymous said...

okay john, who's Rumpole?

Anonymous said...

Lurvey and Lyons and Freedman and Shuminer - all share the same floor in the same building - two former ASA's and two former APD's - and all have the mind, means and capability - they are my vote for Rumpole

Anonymous said...

Let's see.........serve the public as a prosecutor for 17 or so years making far less than you could and when do you get? Some sanctimonious prick randonly attacking you and judging your personal life. Pathetic.

Ranck is a public servant, but a private person. He deserves much better than he's getting here.

Amazing how so many people put up stupid posts without thinking about how they may hurt the people (or their families) that are talked about. Truly sad.

you are real good. go colts go under. i'm getting paid. by the way. david ranck is a good guy and a darn good lawyer.

anyone who would care about what is said anonymously on a blog needs therapy. however, rumpole needs to remove negative posts because of powerful search engines such as google. so and so does drugs or so and so is a shit lawyer posts should not remain because so long as the blog remains, the posts are on the net

you could mention the nicest person, the best lawyer, greatest judge, and some poor jealous jerk would trash them - why? BECAUSE THEY CAN - its anonymous. Make this blog require registration for comments, and it's like ending crank calling with caller id.

did a depo once of a dui sbi victim, had 8 operations, leg mangled by drunk who hit her head on. whole experience sucked. this blog would be outraged at the injury to the victim if it wasn't dominated by insensitive defense attorney. and for those former prosecutors out there not much worse in life then looking at autopsy photos of people killed by drunk drivers as i had the misfortune to do on 5 occasions. or yeah-rumpole team- you suck.

Rumpole said...

Wow! YOu've seen 5 autopsy photos. You're a real pro. Wow. Can I have your autograph? You must be a real good lawyer.

You ass- you have no idea how many lives of people on this blog have been touched by tragedy. Just because some people feel bad for Mr. Cholakis does not mean that there has been anyone on this blog who discounts the awful pain and tragedy that have befallen the people who were injured, regardless of whether a crime was comitted.

Go back to the bar and brag to someone who is impressed that you've seen 5 sets of autopsy photos.

thetruth said...

Five , really, oooooo, were they gross? Get a life.

John Galt said...

What is this world coming to? People want to know who is Rumpole, but no one asks, "Who is John Galt?" Not a literary soul in a sea of Anonymous faces. Who is Rumpole? Who is John Galt? And where do you start if you have to dig a hole to China? Look outside the box, read down the page, use the key -- and think of a name mentioned in the comments only twice so far, but never in this blog. Then even you can Solve the Mystery.

I worked as an asa and say 10 autopsy photos. I was a homicide deterctive, i saw 12, i defend murders- i'v e seeen 50.

Anonymous said...

to The Truth: can't sleep another lonely night as a loser lawyer who blogs for fun, can't get it up? Let me guesss: 5'4", never played sports, went to law school, and defend duis, drove a sports car to overcompensate, and let me guess-Jewish-since 90% of the bloggers are- the real men played sports and get pussy and don't sit at home writing- writing about others- on the sideline again like when you were in school watching others play sports etc.

Anonymous said...

to RUMPOLE: JEALOUS AGAIN, you never would be given the responsibility of handling the most difficult cases for the government. you scoff at someone handling 5 dui manslaughter cases but you did none. you had to go work for the pd, about the worst job to get out of law school. look at all the fat cows at bb's office, because they couldn't get a job anywhere else. you hate law enforcement and were jumping for joy of Chilotis's dilemma and posted a blog about and only backpeddled after you were criticized. the fact that you started an anonymous blog in the first place shows how much of a coward you are. at least marcus identified himself. as long as i can't sleep i'll keep blogging in calling you what you are. i have as much experience as you and i'm 15 years younger. when was the last time you were hired in a big case-take your nose out of bb's ass and you get no more court appointments.

Rumpole said...

To My friend who cannot sleep:
Make it worth my while- Pay me 5,000 for every jury trial I have won so long as that total is above the total amount of cases you have tried. Go ahead, agree to the deal, we will agree for someone to hold 50K from each of us- and I will reveal myself. In the unlikely event I lose, I will pay you 7500 just for every jury trial you have had more than me.

Go ahead big mouth, put your money where your verdicts are.

Rumpole said...

PS: the last time I was hired in a "big" case? How do you define big? +50K fee? Facing life in prison? Define big? I was hired in a case that more than meets both definitions in October- going to trial tomorrow- but not in Miami, not in Florida.

In fact, lets play: WHERE IN THE WORLD IS RUMPOLE?

You'll never find me, but I guarantee you my case will be on the front page most days this coming week, as it is today. Brr...its cold...hahahahaha.

" but you did none. you had to go work for the pd, about the worst job to get out of law school."

I spoke to Roy Black, Jack Denaro, and Stan Blake and they agreed. Haven't spoken to the many other wildly successful lawyers around town who came out of that office, but they'd probably agree with you.

NOMINATIONS are now being accepted for MOST BITTER BLOGGER. Since the identity of the 25 most frequent contributors to this blog is not in dispute let's find out who is the bitter sob constantly contributing vile hatred. My top five are: Jason Grey, David O. Marcus, Brian Tannebaum, Mark Eiglarsh, Dan Lurvey.

Anatomy of this blog: at halftime of football game post fictitous angry epitah and wait for a dozen lawyers to get angry and stir up a storm of gossip and hate. SUCKERS, NEOPHYTES, INTELLECTUAL MIDGETS. Now let's hear from Judge Glick, Blake, Piniero and Schwartz. Lions and tigers and bears oh my! Zenobi, Grey, Lurvery, Lyons, Denaro, Waks, Reisenstein, Marcus, Roark, Hidnert, etc. etc.

the "vile hatred" is mostly written by anonymous people, many mentioned are not anonymous and usually dont write hate. We all know who spews hate, no need to even try and name them. They know who they are.

Observations:
Rump, strange pick with the JETS. You must be a fan or something. Brady is the best qb of all time when it is all said and done.
Also, why get so bent out of shape with your 50k challenge. The real Rumpole would never engage in such bush league "my dick is bigger then yours" gamesmanship. Your money is better spent betting on pro football. But the JETS over the PATS is your worst pick of the bunch.

Anonymous said...

Oh relax, we all hate each other, now Rumpole has given us a public forum for anyone on the internet to see it, let's move on and destroy as many people as we can.

Rumpole said...

I TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE JETS "PICK"- read what I wrote carefully- no mention of spread, just an endorsement of Jets. I think there is usually an upset in week one, Pennington is 2-1 in NE, and plays well. Patriots are not as good as they think they are, as will be seen next week. But I was hoping for an upset, although I am not a Jets fan.

One caveat about next week- as is usual, Belichick is the best coach in the playoffs and has won games in out-coaching the other coach- most recently when he handed Cowher his head in the 2004 AFC championship game. I think Belichick can out coach Shottenheimer next week, I'm just not sure he has the horses. I do not like his receving corps, but his defense is impressive and as the saying goes- defense wins championships. Which is why I'm riding the Ravens to the Super Bowl.
