  1. Shit like this is why I stopped watching Sons of Anarchy.
  2. Ferguson loses the first round of every fight, get dropped, stunned, and hit square on the chin over and over again...but somehow still just overwhelms his opponents. His fighting style is like everything else about him, the more you try to think about it, the less it makes sense.
  3. New season of The Challenge...Wes put's new guy Asaf's name into the elimination, like 50% of the house follows his lead. Asaf says Wes' name and Wes gets pissed and calls him of all things a follower. No one else even thought about Wes, but as soon as he blew up the tribunal decided, he'll want to go against Wes. For someone who thinks that they're smart, Wes is incredibly dumb. But, of course they vote in Jay, the dude who I didn't even realize was on the show until they called him out for elimination. The rules of this game are, be a drunken asshole, and cause a scene no matter how little the insult. The absolute wrong thing to do is act like a reasonable human being, it's a surefire way to be called out. Other observations: Nany, knows that nothing in this game is promised, and if you want some new booty day one is the best time to get it. There was a time when CT was the clear physical ideal for this game, but there are at least 3 dudes his size on this season. The fact that multiple people immediately realized the problem with the loser of the elimination's strategy means that these people spend all their time thinking about this show. It's legitimately some of these people's full time job. They are living in a bunker this season, and you can immediately tell the people who play the game to win challenges, because they are excited that they have a full gym and 40 yards of turf to run sprints in the "house." You can also tell the ones who are there for a free vacation, and/or to sleep their way to a victory...because they're pissed. The twist at the end kind of changes the game in a way that makes the strategy of the game far more interesting. I honestly hope they keep the rule going forward, because it makes so much sense. I've taken a few seasons off, but in this time of social isolation, I'm going to try to keep up with this season.
  4. Is there a way to put members of the board on some sort of watchlist? This person is clearly crying for help, and we probably should get him the help he needs before they find the bodies in his basement.
  5. You could have said this shit about 3 years before any of us ever heard of COVID-19.
  6. Call me crazy, but if you have to add something that makes the document accurately reflect the terms of the deal...doesn't that mean that the original document was inaccurate? If I'm someone who didn't agree with that shit to begin with...it would mean it was inaccurate as a muhfucka to me.
  7. I want to play Persona 5, but I'm about 40 hours into Trails of Cold Steel and there are two more games in the series that I want to play. Not to mention that Final Fantasy 7 Remake is coming out in a little over a week. I just don't know when I'll have time to play a game that can take over 100 hours to complete.
  8. The number one thing the NFLPA should have been fighting for is that they couldn't arbitrarily be blackballed for taking a political stand. Reid's about to be gone, mostly for standing up for himself and speaking out against things he finds unjust.
  9. Over/Under 1 total snap for the rest of Eric Reid's career. I'm going with under, and if they could subtract games from his career they would. With that said, the players association should make him the president, because he seems to be the only one paying attention.
  10. I've dove into Animal Crossing, if you get a friend request from OG Jeff, that's me. My fried code is SW 0186 0905 0417
  11. Give me a couple ideas about your interest/blind spots, and I'll do the same.
  12. A week? I'm not sure where you've been getting your information, but from what I've heard a mild case can last two weeks, and a severe case can be over six weeks. That doesn't even count the incubation period when you may not have symptoms for up to two weeks. That doesn't count the other complications like pneumonia and the other respiratory issues it can cause. This shit is bad news, and as this conversation shows, we don't seem to be getting all of the same information.
  13. This is the first time I've found Colby Covington funny.
  14. It isn't a 1:1 comparison, but Ron Rivera's offensive scheme seemed to be a lot of, "we got Cam, let's see what happens." He didn't get the nickname "Riverboat Ron," because of his sound decision making.
  15. I know, me and my friends are doing online brunch and happy hour out of boredom. The issue is we're doing this shit because we can't go anywhere. DWI is fucking irresponsible on a good day, but drinking and driving when there is no fucking place to be is insane. He told the police that he was drinking, driving, and planned on driving again...where the hell is he going?
  16. The first thing I thought when I heard about this was, "how do you get a DWI when you can't go out to drink?"
  17. I have a friend who is a friend of the Washington team, and he was telling me how excited he was about having Ron Rivera as the head coach. I just looked at him and said, "you do realize Cam Newton isn't coming with him, right?" Rivera is like Bill O'Brien to me. If he had anyone else playing quarterback he would have been fired years ago, but Cam kept bailing him out.
  18. I'm really interested how Cam Newton's career plays out. He was drafted in 2011 and is either the best or second best quarterback drafted until Patrick Mahomes was drafted in 2018. He's the only one who's won an MVP, and his 2015 season is by far the best season that any quarterback from that era has had. Russell Wilson is the only competition, but at his best he wasn't as unstoppable as Cam seemed that season, on a team where he was the only above average offensive weapon. Not only that, he's a completely and totally unique talent. If his career is just never the same, what is his legacy? Opinions about him seem to vary greatly, and most of them have nothing to do with his play. I hope it's not over, but he carried that team on his back for his entire career and his body might be permanently broken.
  19. Here's the thing. I haven't been to Gamestop in years, not because of any moral stand, but because I can get almost everything they sell somewhere else for cheaper or more convieniently.
  20. I'm not saying that he isn't racist or shouldn't be persecuted as a racist based on his actions. I'm saying that we always seem to focus on the Hulk Hogans who get caught saying something racist on tape, but never actually get around to stopping the kind of racism that is harmful to people. Hulk Hogan is an asshole, and probably racist as hell, but he ain't redlining, he's not in a position where he doesn't hire someone with a black sounding name, or racially profiling and killing innocent people in the streets. All of those things matter more than saying something racist on a sex tape, but we only seem to punish the people who are doing the latter, and never actually get around to fixing the former. So yes, that is part of his legacy, and racism is way more complex of a subject that needs to be discussed here. My point is that sure all racism is bad, but focusing the fight against racism against the Hulk Hogan's of the world isn't actually going to fix the harm that is being done by racism. Do you remember when the concussion stuff started coming out about football? That report came out about CTE and how harmful repeated hits to the head are, and how football players, especially offensive and defensive lineman have the brains of old ass men. So the NFL starting doing stuff like fining safeties and line backers for big hits, and implementing the concussion protocol. Here's the issue with that, that report specifically says that the small repeated brain traumas are more debilitating than the occasional big brain traumas. Except, they've done nothing to actually address the small repeated brain traumas. I'm not saying to stop fining people for helmet to helmet hits or to stop the concussion protocol, I'm saying that is not the part we should be focused on. We fight racism like we fight concussions. The racism that is harder to see, but is actually proven to be harmful is never addressed, while we persecute the people who are racist on camera/audio. It makes us feel better, but ultimately doesn't fix the problem. So when he said that people bringing up Hogan's racism is more about hating Hogan than it is about hating racism, I think of all the people who are happy talking about Hulk Hogan's racism but are quiet about all the other racism going on in the world.
  21. As a black person in America, I couldn't agree more with almost every time we persecute someone as a racist. Donald Sterling spent decades as an actively racist slumlord who treated his players like chattel slaves, but until someone heard him being racist on tape nobody gave a fuck.
  22. I swear this went from something I found funny as a teenager to fucking horrific as an adult worse than post cube N.W.A. records. At least N.W.A. still had Dr. Dre beats.
  23. You're missing my point. Michael Jackson isn't an underrated vocalist, because he sold so many damn records it's safe to assume that people like to hear him sing. There are about 55191956156189265051956106516561165489 more interesting things to talk about. Seriously, if we just sat around saying stuff like, "you know who had a good run, Hulk Hogan," or "You know what move finished a murderer's row of contenders? Hulk Hogan's legdrop," this board wouldn't have any members. Those aren't interesting conversations. Hulk Hogan's place in history is understood, and doesn't need to be stated in every conversation about him. Does anyone talk about both The Rock and Steve Austin both putting over Chris Jericho on the same night? Can you think of a single instance? It happened around the same time, and was pretty significant at the time. No one talks about that either. Doing the right thing rarely makes the news, because that's what you are supposed to do. You're basically a dad asking, "why don't I get credit for providing for my family?" It's because that's what you signed up for when you started a family. Putting your opponent over is the job of a wrestler. It isn't notable when it happens, it's only notable when it doesn't happen.
  24. This is right up there with the, "Michael Jackson was vastly underrated as a vocalist," twitter thread I saw earlier. Who is underrating Michael Jackson as a vocalist? Name all zero of them. Hulk Hogan is fucking Hulk Hogan. Sure there is plenty of completely and totally valid criticism of Hulk Hogan, but at the end of the day no one is minimizing his importance as a wrestler. Whent @The Natural says, "I have strong opinions about former WWF/WCW/WWE Champion Terry Bollea which you should PM me about. But I wanted to express them here too because I can't help myself" it's because he's proved to be an irredeemable asshole over and over again. He's probably the most important wrestler in American history, almost anything you say about him as a wrestler comes second to that fact. Everything that is said about him as a man is pretty much 100% valid. Claiming that Hulk Hogan of all people doesn't get enough credit, is absurd. There is pretty much no one in history who has gotten more real, tangible, over the top credit.
  25. Yeah, it felt like they either had to stay open or close for good. They've been struggling over the last few years, and this is going to be a death blow for them and a lot of other struggling businesses. I read somewhere that 75% of independent restaurants don't have the kind of cash on hand to stay closed for more than a week or two.
