I'm not worried about whether or not you liked it; I just find it hilarious that anyone would have to "think about" a really basic summer blockbuster like this. Yes, hilarious. But yeah, it was fine. Not as good as Rogue One. It suffered some from the same thing that all prequels suffer f...

Trey Wingo, who usually has the most milquetoast, tepid takes on the radio, really laid into the NFL about this. Completely called out the league using patriotism to turn a buck, called out Goodell's buddy buddy relationship with Trump, and said that with Trump and Pence chiming in about sports deci...
