  1. The All Confederate Conference refs doing everything they can to get Clemson back in the game, two phantom holding calls and a no call on a helmet to helmet.
  2. Both Wahoo and Ladd, wrestled in the off-season but only wrestled full time after they retired from football, they didn’t make the switch for “better” pay. Wahoo played in the AFL for 8 seasons and while colorful was an average player, Ladd was a star who played 7 seasons but had knee injuries that cut his football career short, if he didn’t have the knee injuries he would have played a few more seasons. Up until the mid-70’s almost all NFL players had off season jobs, superstars usually had some sort of corporate sales job where they played golf and went to dinners.
  3. You cant get more late 1978 than that episode of Dinah!
  4. Yes and they were a tag team in the indies. Bret doesn’t seem like he wants to be there.
  5. Things were different then since it was still about selling tickets to house shows, the smashing the belt angle was to set up Hogan-Perfect on the road, Hogan's SNME matches were either ones that finished their house show run or were ones that weren't going to be on house shows.
  6. When WCW got the Big Gold back it was first the re-born NWA title belt since WCW had rejoined the NWA. The "new" NWA World Championship was pretty much a WCW-New Japan thing, the other NWA promoters wanted dates on the champion and a vote on who should be the champion, WCW said no, the NWA promoters sued WCW which lead to the name change to the WCW International World Championship.
  7. TJ Watt just showed why he’s getting the big bucks.
  8. The call from New York to review that catch is why people think the NFL is rigged, the over/under for the game was either 42 or 42.5 going to OT all but guaranteed it'd be 43 or more.
  9. That’s total bs, up until 1984 the NCAA controlled all the tv rights and Tennessee would be on live tv at most twice a year(1 national game and 1 regional game) the only way they’d be getting a national game is if they had a really good team. From 1984 to 1995 they would have been on more but not every game. I would also call bs if he claimed that Southeastern got higher ratings than the Tennessee football highlight/coaches show that aired Sunday mornings. Every big school had one of those shows, they got monster ratings and usually had a big money sponsor. Take all of those “we got bigger ratings than Dallas or Monday Night Football” with a grain of salt, sure wrestling got a big share of the audience during their time slot but less people were watching tv when wrestling was on.
  10. Who'll be the first team to play Monday night then turn around and play the 4pm game on Saturday?
  11. It's weird seeing a clean shaven Afa & Sika, also nice touch announcing them from American Samoa to make sure everyone knew they were faces.
  12. While I'll watch License to Kill whenever it's on it's low on my list, replace Bond with Sonny Crockett and Felix Leiter with Rico Tubbs and it's basically an extremely violent Miami Vice movie. I'll add I'm not a huge fan of the Dalton flicks even though Dalton is a good Bond, he was dealt a bad hand in his two outings as Bond. Am I the only one who loves Tomorrow Never Dies? The World Is Not Enough would have been good if they cast anyone else as Christmas Jones, Die Another Day was a mess and that's a shame because Rosmund Pike was great in it. I will add that the only Bond film I won't jump into and watch when it's on is Thunderball, that movie is a painful bore.
  13. The league is the ones leaking the emails, since Gruden didn’t resign or get fired earlier today for the DeMaurice Smith leak the league leaked more emails. I wonder what else they had in case Gruden and Davis dug in and told the league to F off.
  14. I really liked No Time To Die, I would rank it behind Casino Royale when it comes to the Daniel Craig flicks. I know people are all over the place when it comes to this flim, for everyone who liked No Time To Die would this be the best "last" Bond film for the actor playing Bond?
  15. Neither Iowa or Penn State should have been ranked that high.
  16. Switzer was still able to benefit from all the draft picks Johnson got from the Vikings, Johnson didn’t have that luxury in Miami. Also, had the Vikings passed on the Walker trade it’s doubtful Johnson and then Switzer would have had the same success in Dallas.
  17. Sure Switzer was the head coach but did he really do anything besides stand on the sidelines? Jerry Jones was making all of the personal decisions and Switzer seems smart enough to stay out of his assistant coaches way. Also, he only has the Super Bowl ring due to Neil O'Donnell who was the MVP for the Cowboys that day.
  18. Is there a Cliff Notes version somewhere? That podcast is almost 6 hours long.
  19. A lot of people including yours truly hated Paterno before the Sandusky story broke.
  20. Yes, it's a concept album that's mimics a pirate radio station.
  21. An artist being called a sell out for allowing their song to be used in a commercial is such old timey pretentious hippie bullshit, I think Jan Wenner was always the one leading that charge. The Who actually tried to sell commercial time on "The Who Sell Out" since they were broke and had a shitty record deal, every company they asked turned them down.
  22. Garner and Savalas were still high up on the celeb prestige scale when they were doing commercials in the 80's, both had Oscar nominations and both won lead actor Emmy's. I agree it's really weird seeing Jamie Foxx and Ben Affleck shilling gambling apps, but those companies have massive amounts of money to throw around and those commercials are everywhere in states that allow online betting so the residuals are going to be insane.
  23. Liev Schreiber on camera doing commercials doesn't seem odd or weird to me. I'll note that I did grow up with James Garner all over my tv slinging Beef and Polaroid cameras, along with Telly Savalas pimping The Players Club and the Duluth tourist board. If Schreiber was around back then, he'd be a notch or two lower than Rockford and Kojack on the fame and prestige scale.
  24. What legit evidence is there that organized crime in the US was involved in pro wrestling? I’m sure promoters paid a “tax” in arenas located in mobbed up cities but that was rolled into the price of renting the venue, concert promoters had to deal with it too.
