  1. They weren't booing the Raiders, but that bullshit call on Carr's first down. I guess we wouldn't be the Oakland Raiders if the league didn't try and find a way to fuck us.
  2. Dwight's coming off that list this year, tho. And I'll say this for the rings argument, you might not need them to be the greatest Rocket of all time (I don't agree, btw, Harden would need to lead the team to at least one to top Hakeem), but you could score a million points in LA or Boston and it wouldn't matter for shit if you didn't win titles.
  3. Definitely need Kuzma to come around, and for Dwight to keep playing like he has, but there's not a team in the West really ready to deal with the Lakers size.
  4. I just read through this entire thread and there is a suspicious lack of talk about the best team in the league. Like, y'all know the Lakers are back, right? Wasting my time making me read about the Houston Rockets.
  5. The key element is anger. Anger at how they'd been used, anger at how the business works. Anger at the faux-meritocracy. That very real anger and frustration is what created the energy to fuel their drive and growth. They found outlets that let them channel that anger back into their careers.
  6. Seeing them both for the first time, I bought ZSJ as an opponent for Ishii, despite the size difference. Honestly, the only issue is I didn't really but into him being able to submit Ishii, but that's not a knock on him, and more a credit to Ishii. Also really loved GoD, but I don't necessarily agree that Tama was dancing and singing like the Usos. He was gangster as fuck. Those two have a great look and should go far. Honestly, the biggest thing I noticed about New Japan is that everyone either looks like a serious wrestler, or looks cool as fuck, which is important to me. Cool as fuck is what I want from my wrestling. They almost lost me with that, but I think it ended up working due to the excellent work by RPG Vice. I thought Tanahashi/Gunn was perfectly acceptable wrestling (I admittedly have low standards, though). A little disappointed I didn't get to see Tanahashi against a better opponent because of his hype, but they had a fine match and Gunn was fun playing with the crowd.
  7. Tonight was my first exposure to New Japan, and I was definitely impressed. I never knew I needed Ishii in my life, but I'll fix that shortly. Bucks/RPG was amazing in that it got me to buy into a Bucks match. I enjoy their schtick, but, overkill is not my cup of tea. Having it explained as them killing off RPG made it make sense, though. Probably enjoyed the 8-Man most, that was just tons of fun. Tags forever. Saw Liger live, so I've got that going for me. Great show, I'll have to check out more.
  8. The Oakland Raiders. Vince is Al Davis. Al is Vince. Big back in the day, slow, steady decline. It's like poetry.
  9. Bobski/Jericho mentions something like 'should be jumpin' too' when he introduced Johnson, so I think that was intentional.
  10. Hahahahahaha, fuck you Frank Reich!

    2016 NFL Draft

    A lot of people are hating on the Raiders' draft, but it mostly seems to be because people still think they're absolute dirt. The Connor Cook selection especially should show you were they believe themselves to be, that's a staple of good teams like Green Bay and New England. Really happy with the draft. Probably would have taken Perkins over Washington, but they're different style backs so I can see why they went the direction they did. Super excited about the possibilities on defense next season, they're going to get after people.
  12. N...N...W...W...A...A... West coast invasion! Man, a wrestling promotion consisting of rappers would be the coolest thing ever.
  13. This is the first round I've felt comfortable really voting, since I feel like I have a good grasp of both competitors, and I voted for Sasha Banks because I live in Long Beach and I'm pretty sure I couldn't show my face in the streets if I didn't. Then again, it's also because she's the GOD DAMN BOSS.
  14. The Rams have zero chance of selling out the Coliseum. Not that it's really on them, because it's a massive (93,607, that's over 10,000 more seats than Metlife) stadium that any team in almost any market would have trouble selling out. Honestly, the only way I could see it selling out is if/when they play the Raiders.
  15. I didn't think that Ryan Leaf could fall farther than his time in prison, but, there you go... (aware it's unlikely to actually be him.) I have a ton of wrestling move stories, up to current day, and I'm 33. Part of it is because my brother and I are fans, but I'm pretty much a nerd, so... Anyway, the best one is probably the time some friends and I were drunk, at a party, in a hotel room, and start having a battle royale. I went up top (a ledge next to a bed) for a frog splash, only to jump right into the edge of the ceiling where it changed heights. Just add it to my list of concussions, I think I get something free when I get to a dozen!
