    This talk made me go back to the Von Erich's ranch segment, which is still funny, and I proceeded to the Sunshine vs. Precious feud which Sunshine just slays. She gets on the mic and blows everyone out of the water (and btw, she is about ten times hotter than Jimmy's actual wife). You gotta love her talking about "the tapes", "the medical records", "I did things for you that I wouldn't have ever done"; makes Garvin look super sleazy because your gears start turning about what the tapes and the things are -- likely of a sexual nature. EDIT: Oh yeah, this stuff also aired on a Christian network! The '80s were a different time...

    Guys can we stop fighting about whether Westerosian climate change is caused by the actions of White Walkers or is a natural process and just focus on creating Valeryan ore fracking jobs.

    Also, claiming Brian Burke is a totally neutral observer is the most blatant attempt at trolling me anyone has made in 2016 so far, and I salute you for the effort. You're a good fellow.

    I think the narrative is to stop rewarding consistent failure. Brian Burke, a totally neutral observer in this process, was just on SportsNet and said as much. Who am I to argue with such a fine looking individual? I'm still unsure of how Edmonton's consistent terrible play and management is in your blind spot. Again, no team leaning on a 18 year old to turn around a decade's worth of rot is going to find instant success.

    Since the EPSN Poll is hilariously one-sided. 70/30%. I figured I would do the same poll here. Own your vote. I barely watch the NBA now, but I watched it a lot more in Jordan's era and I'd still choose Golden State because they just seem to be a way better overall team. Once you get past Jordan, and a 2nd tier Pippen you just have a lot of random pieces that all clicked. Golden State seems to have a lot better overall actual team as well as starting lineup. Now, their defense is another story.

    The Total Extreme Wrestling 2016 demo hits Monday (perhaps even as early as Sunday night for us North Americans) and I cannot be more excited for it. You can play with any mod as many times as you want for up to two months of game time. The full game comes out a week later on May 2nd. Price is $35 USD. The features that developer Adam Ryland revealed in his journal throughout February and March were stunning, ranging from giving users the choice to disable a lot of the complexities that turned them off of TEW to finally fulfilling a lot of the bigger requests. Here are a few highlights: LINK TO THE JOURNAL WITH ALL 352 FEATURES DETAILED EWR-like simplicity! A lot of people never made the jump from EWR's basic booking structure to TEW's more advanced simulation style of management because there was just too much shit to do and worry about. There are a bevy of options to disable a lot of the penalties TEW has added since switching from EWR. DFA, I know this was an issue you've talked about and you're definitely not alone. Here are the options you can disable: Show length penalty (shows can now be any length and not receive a penalty for being too short or too long) Match-to-angle ratio penalty (WWE in the attitude era having too many matches and not enough angles, for instance) Worker complaints for being left off shows Match aims requirements (for example, needing a certain number of comedy matches or what not. This is a new feature to TEW 2016) Momentum (workers needing to be built up via wins and positive actions in angles) Sex appeal (needing attractive women on your show if you're mainstream, again a new feature for 2016 called the "sausage fest penalty") Worker overuse (if you use a jobber/undercard worker too much, you'd get penalized) There are more from TEW 2013, in which a lot of the complexities can be turned off. Autobooker (even more EWR-like features!) Alliance champions so you can now recreate a touring NWA champ (fuck yes! This will make the Death of the Territories mod starting in '83 even more amazing!) More control over development territories This is both an excellent addition and probably the biggest disappointment for most fans, as many expected to be able just to run NXT/other developmental promotions but that's not happening. Instead, you have pretty much full control of who works for your child company, their push, tag teams, titles, etc. Just can't book the shows, unfortunately. Revamped networks (you can recreate WWE Network, SNME-like specials) Figureheads/company aces Including main event babyfaces sometimes complaining when you want them to turn heel because of the loss in merchandise revenue Hall of Fames for each promotion (on top of the general Hall of Immortals) Much more realistic backstage environment Wrestlers' court (featuring Judy Bagwell!) Cliques Toxic workers (brother) Nepotism Wrongful termination Rehab Interventions Scumbag owners (AKA the Ian Rotten Effect) Young workers demanding raises if you lock them into long contracts For me, the most intriguing features are all about making the AI more aggressive and smarter (and the morale changes). The game world should develop in a far more organic and dynamic way now. I'm also working on a modern day mod for the game. Instead of one person just making all of the ratings calls, somebody had the excellent idea of creating a forum dedicated to discussing ratings and finding a consensus. It's a very small community with one mod maker posting a lot of workers and mostly me making suggestions, but the WWE section had a decent number of people inputting ideas. The more voices the better, particularly for those that watch lots of Japanese/Euro/smaller US indies, joshi, or lucha libre. Even if you just watch WWE, you'd be more than welcome as the more discussion and more voices, the better end product. Here's a link to the forum. When the game is out, people can post here about their saves and what not too. The world needs to know how you'd book Roman Reigns! How many world championships does Cesaro have in your game?! Can you save TNA from both Nazis and bankruptcy?! CAN YOU GET ROH BETTER LIGHTING (this is an actual feature in the game ffs)?! CAN YOU BOOK PWG SO THAT SUPER DRAGON DOESN'T GET A CONCUSSION EVERY TIME HE COMES BACK?! CAN YOU BRING ORDER TO AAA?! The questions are limited only by your imagination. I know a lot of folks love the fictional universe that the game comes with, but I've never really been able to get into it. It's pretty darned neat though.

    I can shed some light on the Sunshine press conference insinuations. It wasn't as sleazy as you think... "The tapes" refer to Garvin's entrance to World Class, his gimmick was initially where he would come to ringside during other matches and would tape them with a home movie camera. He also initially refused to wrestle on TV because he did not want his opponents to have the same advantage he did: able to study and find weaknesses.

    It's a shame too because I like Ciara Renee but some of the material...ooft. in general the whole cast is great so it's frustrating when some of them get bogged down by bad/tropey writing. Also I hated the way they dragged shit out. Like. It's Hawkman. Just kill him and the next one will be fine. Jesus.

    My character issue with Tunsil is owning up to getting paid. That shit is an omerta situation. Eric Dickerson to this day takes the fifth on those questions. College kid smokes weed is less than nothing. On another note, Panthers have drafted exactly like the Panthers thus far. I'm sure it works out but I would have preferred some o line help and/or a WR. BUT In Gettleman We Trust.

    I was always a big fan of the Jimmy Garvin/Precious pairing whether he was a heel or face. As a heel, he kind of had that Miz thing going where he called himself Gorgeous when he clearly wasn't but he had a hot (for the 80's anyway) wife that you couldn't have. As a face, he was the loving husband fending off sleazeballs like Flair who insulted his wife.

    I highly recommend the book Crazy '08, by Cait Murphy, it follows the whole season and pretty much makes the case for it being the best season of baseball ever. The AL race was tight as well, with the Tigers winning by half a game over Cleveland and 1 and a half over the White Sox. The Pirates only finished a game out of the NL too.

    I don't want to add a a new post to the Takeover thread, which is pretty much done with, so I'll add this. Just re-watched Nakamura/Zayn from Takeover. The match, the atmosphere, everything was outstanding. And if you were in the crowd for that, I love you very much for it. The "Fight forever" chant in particular gave me massive goosebumps that I just can't shake off. So great, so unbelievably wonderful, I have to see this again immediately. Zayn had a wonderful sendoff and Nak looked like a billion bucks. Just loved this so, so much.

    Well, the guy at the station did have to search for that specific suit, so that's on him. As for my old friend who knew what that was, it was basically him being a dick about the whole "It's not a panda suit, you fucks, it's this!" I like the guy, but c'mon, people will see what they see anyway. Besides, it's the internet, if it was made or thought of in any capacity it will always be searchable and bought online. That is, if you're into that sort of thing. If rule 34 of the internet is "if it exists there's porn/freaky shit" for it, then rule 35 might as well be "if it exists, we make something about it!" Oh, and to clarify it was a friend of a friend, but that's not to discount what OSJ said.

    Listen. Snow zombies resurrecting the dead and massacring frontier settlements is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses; not from some horrible icy genocide. You can't expect to wield supreme power just ‘cause some popsicle with arms tried to tear your head off. I mean, if I went around saying I was a king just because some frostbitten weirdo had lobbed a snowball at me, they'd put me away!

    Saw Civil War yesterday and it's pretty damn good as far as Marvel movies go.Really, really dug Spidey and Black Panther. Winter Soldier was its usual bad ass self. Also liked the balance between Stark and Cap. I was afraid they would take the comic book route and make Stark the complete villain, but his motivations and reasons are justified. Official new MCU POWER RANKING TOP 3: 1. Winter Soldier. 2. Civil War. 3. Guardians of the Galaxy.

    What you might not know about the Zack Sabre Jr/Flash Morgan Webster match is that Flash dislocated his shoulder halfway through the match, and later tore his ankle ligaments. Still finished the match, okay Caristico?

    Melbourne, Aus. I will say this. If the goal was to make you want to see the new Spiderman film, they smash it out the park ten times over. One of the best cameos ever. New Black Panther film? Ehh, not so much.

    I'm laughing so hard at the people bitching about the crowds singing a song to Bayley, and completely missing the meaning behind the song. Of course a number of the people here would look at it as objectifying Bayley as a sexual object, while ignoring that MAYBE, just maybe the crowds sing that song to her because they like her and they've chosen her as "their" girl. You know, like Daniel Bryan was to a lot of people in 2014. But, hey, whatever, if she has a vagina it must be trying to objectify her! Meanwhile, maybe 1 or two people have ever called out the guy that does the RAW threads for posting ass crack and tit screengrabs. That's okay, apparently - but singing a song? HELL NO! Also, I like how the crowds booing John Cena must mean they're "Smarky McSmarks" or neckbeards instead of, y'know, actively disliking his work and booing him accordingly. Such a negative view inside this wrestling bubble.
