Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

I love the whole ending at the station myself. Perfect way to end it.

So I know there's an unrated director's cut, but heard that it doesn't add much to the movie itself. Just a couple scenes extended. Is that true?

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

Yeah, Pace's history with trading down in the 2nd have resulted in a 2nd and 4th rounder, but all of his trade downs have been 5-8 picks later IIRC. I think you could get a 3rd if it was 10 picks difference which is why I picked Baltimore as the example. Another option would be trading for a later 2...

It wouldn't take much to beat Wake's deal. His contract with Miami at that time was like 1 mil/yr.

Re: The Ricketts family sucks in all kinds of ways

Baseball has a long, long history of horsefeathers owners doing horsefeathers things. The owner of the Red Sox sold Ruth's contract because he had a flop on Broadway. Charles Comisky precipitated the "The Black Sox" scandal by treating his star players lousy. Jeff Luria was allowed to buy...

I saw on TV that he's the 3rd heaviest player in the NBA at 285. Like I can't figure out that he's just that fat or that they're lying on TV cuz there has to be more than 2 guys in the NBA that weighs more.

Re: 2019-20 Offseason Rumors/General Chit-Chat

He's the team's backup CF and 4th probably 5th when OF. You keep saying this, but dude has almost 800 ABs this past 2 seasons and probably will get as many ABs as he did this past season (339) which is about 150 too many IMO. That probably puts him in the top 30 for CFs in terms of ABs. What make y...

Re: NFL Playoffs: Wildcard Round

Not sure where to put this, but this is probably the best place.

Luke Kuechly retired. It's suck for a guy to see awesome players like him, Willis, Gronk, etc. to retire so early, but it's the right decision.

One would hope they are able to get it eliminated after '21, but I'm not holding my breath nor would I be surprised if it ends up an actual hard cap. Yeah I think given the past few CBAs the players will do something that superficially sounds good but ultimately makes things worse. My guess is that...

There have been some bad/horrible playcalling from Nagy in his HC career, but that set of downs on the 5 yd line was the worst and it's not even close imo.

The only trade package that I can think of that will be close to what you want where it's not much of a drop off in 2020 is probably something like Ender Inciarte, Ian Anderson, and a prospect (most likely a SP) in the 8-15 range of their prospects list from the Braves. You upgrade at CF who's signe...
