Topics I've Started

The Hobbit, Battle of Five Armies.

Today, 03:26 AM

Resident Tolkien Fanatic checking in. Yall want some battles- you got it.

 

I'm not going to rate it- or give away too many spoilers, because I can't hardly be objective.  If you've read the books- you have to know by now Jackson took some serious artistic license on several points- Azog should never have been in any of the movies- the Dwarves killed him off in the Battle in front of the gates of Moria. Of course, you have to enhance a few scenes for screenplay drama.

 

I will say the White Council rescuing Gandalf from Dol Gildur is way cool- and again- us Lore Masters know they weren't really sure at the time if that was Sauron or not.

 

Complaints? Jackson could have done a better job of tying up the loose ends at Erebor. Positives are he did a pretty good job of linking the Hobbit into what happens 60 years later in Lord of the Rings.

 

So if you're a Tolkien fanatic it's must see. And if you're into action adventure, it's certainly worth a look.


Guess Who's alone at the Top?

Thanks for ruining your draft position Rex. The Browns thank you profusely.  :D


Michigan may suck- but not as bad a FSU

18 October 2014 - 01:03 AM

"Infamous" Jamis should have been kicked off the team- long ago I'm sick of FSU and the local police department covering for his sorry ass. At least Georgia had the 'nads to suspend Gurley- it's all about wins in Seminole Country apparently.

 

Nah- I didn't rape that chick. Nah- I just forgot to pay for those crab legs. Nah, I didn't get one penny for signing 2,000 authenticated autographs. MHO- and I hate to judge- but lying sack of shit.

 

I HATE Notre Dame- but I sincerely hope they beat the crap out of Florida State.

 

 


Other Team's Cuts

30 August 2014 - 01:03 PM

Well not cut yet- but should be I had to look this one up to torture PG. Guess who's averaging a stellar 2.6 ypc in the preseason? Our old pal, none other than "Run to Darkness" Trent Richardson. Boom Herron and a guy I never heard of Zurlon Tipton are doing better. May go down as one of the biggest busts in the history of the NFL- at least Banner and Lombardi got that one right.

 

On a serious note, Vincent Brown cut by the Chargers- any interest, even though he's hurt? Not that old.


Josh Gordon Hearing Continues Monday

03 August 2014 - 03:15 PM

Yeah- I thought I'd bring it up- we haven't had a formal place to discuss in about a month. 

 

My viewpoints and thoughts.

 

As a laboratory professional "Medical Laboratory Scientists must recognize anomalies in their test results and know how to correct problems with the instrumentation". Josh's test results should be thrown out- (and I'd say the same even if it was Ben Rotlisberger.)

 

Standard deviation is too high, and way to close to the cutoff to be kicking a guy out of the league for a year over. As was pointed out, the NFL standard is 1\10 of the Olympic Committee's. It was pointed out on another board- Josh wouldn't even be in stage 3 if he hadn't agreed to it after the codeine episode, you normally get 2 strikes in stage 2.

 

Secondly- the meeting with the arbitrator went on for 10 hours- and they're still not done. I know lawyers can get paid by the hour, but geeze, this is turning into an OJ type deal. I have a feeling Goodell wanted to be there in person too. Something more than just Josh Gordon going on behind the scenes is being speculated by a lot of observers. 

 

My guess (hope) is Gordon's drug test gets tossed, then Goodell is going to have a long talk with him, and give him a two game suspension under the personal conduct policy to save face.  You can't suspend Ray rice 2 games for domestic violence, and then kick Gordon out for a year for smoking weed- and FWIW, I'll buy his he was getting second hand smoke from his pals argument- that was an incredibly low level. It would be like a person's blood alcohol after drinking one near beer.
