    I stand by Trent. I too vow to never play for the Washington Redskins. You can hold me to that.

    Let’s not even start this foolish debate. Wentz is far superior than Dak in every way, minus durability. Like I said, he’ll have to prove that this year. Cowboys paying Dak 30 a year would be the most laughable thing in the NFL of recent memory.

    QB controversy brewing?

    I'm going to do all the sacks from the year, but I wanted to break it down. I need to reupload a bunch of these. As always, let me know your thoughts. Here are the first 4 games: https://imgur.com/cjK5rhW Sack #1 1st and 10 It’s 1st and 10, and the Packers have 3 TEs in the game for some inexplicable reason. Marcedes Lewis and Lance Kendricks are on the line to the right, Jimmy Graham is in the slot to the left. Ty Montgomery will line up in the backfield before being motioned out to be the boundary receiver to the left with Graham. Davante Adams is to the right. Justin McCray shoots his hands here and they both get intercepted by Akiem Hicks who takes them and promptly walks him into the backfield before discarding him and getting a strip sack. I don’t know what there is to say about McCray here. The Packer lineman are taught that they are never to shoot their hands first for this exact reason. Even if McCray doesn’t screw this up, the play is going nowhere though. Nobody is open. Which is what happens when you have no pass catching talent on the field. Responsibility: 1 McCray/1 McCarthy +++ Sack #2 3rd and 9 3rd and 9 is a down you shouldn’t be in. It means the defenders are able to pin their ears back and run all sorts of stunts and blitzes. That’s what happened here. There’s 3 WRs, Ty Montgomery, and Jimmy Graham in the game. The Bears are going to play coverage with four rushing and seven dropping back. Nobody really gets open here. Graham is open for a short gain but he wasn’t likely go get 9 yards to move the chains and avoid a punt. Rather than throw to Graham, Rodgers holds it, the rush gets home and Rodgers ends up hurting his knee. On the rush itself, Linsley and McCray mangle this DT stunt. Taylor passes off his DT and picks up the looper exactly like he’s supposed to, but Linsley has gotten turned to far over and ends up getting walloped in the side and falling. If handled appropriately, Linsley would have handed his DT over to McCray a second sooner, and wouldn’t have gotten clipped in the side and fallen down. He instead would have been able to pick up the guy who had the sack. It’s hard to put the blame on anybody here as 3rd and 9 is really tough to block against a good defensive line, but I think Linsley needs to eat this one. Responsibility: 1 Linsley +++ https://imgur.com/NHduEcw Sack #3 3rd and 9 from the Bears 9. 3rd and 9 in the redzone is really tough. Kizer just really sucks though. He passes up what was a decent shot at a TD and instead walks into a sack and gets stripped. Don’t play Deshon Kizer. Responsibility: 1 Kizer +++ Sack #4 1st and 10 Kahlil Mack’s a really good player. He beats Bulaga around the edge in 2 seconds and change. He does a great inside step that causes Bulaga to stutter and then gets his hands into Bulaga’s pads for a rip down move. He does all of that without losing hardly any time around the edge. Sometimes you just have to tip your hat to a great player. Roquan Smtih technically gets the sack here but Montgomery actually did a really good job of picking him up on the initial rush. He lost the block when his legs got taken out by friendly fire. This was all Mack. Responsibility: 1 Bulaga +++ https://imgur.com/eizD17p Sack #5 2nd and 10 This is an attempt at play action. The Line is showing some zone stepping to sell this and Kendricks is coming across to mimic a counter lead run. Kendricks misangles his math, he needs to be at least a step over to his left so that he can pickup the rusher. McCray just doesn’t have the feet to play this through. He ends up getting beat on his outside shoulder by Sheldon Rischardson for interior pressure. Responsibility: 1 McCray/1/2 Kendricks +++ Sack #6 1st and 10 Danielle Hunter gets Bulaga very similar to how Mack got him. They’re aiming for his outside shoulder and throwing their hands across his body. When Bulaga stops his feet to counter, they’re playing off of his outside shoulder and running through his outside arm. He needs to continue to move his feet and not get suckered into his punch early. Responsibility: 1 Bulaga +++ Sack 7 2nd and 10 David Parry is going to get the sack here by just bullrushing Lane Taylor into Aaron Rodgers. The downside of shooting your hands second is that you need to have the anchor to sit down on the bullrush when it comes. Taylor was playing high up in his stance and wasn’t able to kill it. We do get to see Aaron Rodgers double clutch at an open receiver running an arrow route for the first time in this collection. He gets to eat half a sack here for that decision. Responsibility: 1 Taylor/1/2 Rodgers +++ https://imgur.com/mCw2nY5 Sack 8 3rd and 4 Vikings come with a blitz to the outside. Bakhtiari gets dinged with this for blocking nobody. Rodgers gets to eat one too for completely missing that a blitzer was coming from his left and that he had 2 defenders to pick up 3 receivers with 4 yards to the first down marker. Responsibility: 1 Bakhtiari/1Rodgers +++ https://imgur.com/goeSMmd Sack 9 1st and 10 This play is complete trash. The further back a QB is from the line of scrimmage, the harder it is for an offensive lineman to protect him. That’s why it’s important for QBs to slide forward in the pocket when they hit their 7 yards of depth. They generally want to slide up to 5 yards so that their offensive tackles can push the edge rushers behind the QB and out of the play. Rodgers starts at 5 yards in the backfield, and does a play fake that gets him ten yards deep. This is terrible. Because David Bakhtiari is a stud, he rides this out and manages to cut off his man. The problem is that he had to move so far away from his linemates that it left all of them on an island. For a Guard, pass protecting often happens in a phone booth. A defensive tackle can’t run way the hell outside of you because he’ll run into his teammate. That’s why so many Tackles that don’t have the feet to play offensive tackle find success at Guard. When Bakhtiari gets so far wide and so far deep, he essentially turns Lane Taylor into an Offensive Tackle with all the footwork requirements that entails. He is not ready for this on this particular play. You can already see that he’s off balance when Jamaal Williams runs into his back and sets a textbook screen for Jonathan Allen to run around and get to the QB. Even that might have been survivable, the rest of the line did a very good job giving Rodgers a window to step up into, except that Mercedes Lewis just forgot the protection call and gave Preston Smtih a clear-as-day shot at Rodgers. Fire everybody. Jimmy Graham and Randall Cobb were both wide open for big plays here if the protection was good. Responsibility: 1 McCarthy/1 Lewis/1/2 Williams/1/2 Taylor +++ Sack 10 1st and 10 The Redskins are going to come with just three here and we’re still going to give up a sack almost immediately. Preston Smith is going to drop back into coverage (and do a really good job of it) which is going to make Rodgers hesitant to try and gun a ball into some very tight windows. Bulaga gets held here but doesn’t get a flag. Ionnidas is going to get an arm wrapped around his waist and use it to twist him off balance and set him up for the bull rush. Once again, this kinda thing can happen when you punch second as a pass protector. Responsibility: 1 Bulaga +++ https://imgur.com/gj5Sdf5 Sack 11 2nd and 14 Redskins get a shot to pin their ears back and make something happen thanks to the down and distance. Similar to what happened in the first sack against the Redskins, Spriggs is going to take his man way the hell outside which is going to leave Justin McCray in space. Justin McCray is not good in space which is why DaRon Payne promptly beats him. I can’t say for certain, but I’m about 50% sure that Jimmy Graham is supposed to turn his hitch there into an inside slant route when the Inside Linebacker rotates away from him. Not sure. Responsibility: 1 McCray +++ Sack 12 3rd and 15 I shouldn’t even both with this one considering they were down 14 with a 1:40 left in the game, but we’re doing this to be a completionist. Initial protection isn’t bad, but at about the 3.25 second mark, Lane Taylor gets beat by an inside spin move. Everything would have been fine with that, except that Rodgers was deciding whether or not to throw a ball to Graham that may have been contested (why the **** not, you’re down 14 with less than 2 minutes left) and took two slide steps up into the pocket for no reason which put him in range of the sack. They each get half of a sack here in my eyes. Responsibility: 1/2Taylor/1/2 Rodgers +++ https://imgur.com/z5VYQ80 Sack 13 2nd and 6 Blitz coming from the safety. Rodgers doesn’t look for his checkdown and ends up getting hit. Williams was open in the flat. Responsibility: Rodgers +++ Sack 14 3rd and 6 It’s 3rd and 6 and the defense is showing blitz. Rodgers does the right thing to motion Montgomery out as a pressure release valve. And then doesn’t throw it to his checkdown RB in the face of the blitz, gets hit, and fumbles. Responsibility: Rodgers +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Through 4 games 14 Total Sacks 19 Sacks Contributed Rodgers: 4 Bulaga: 3 McCray: 3 McCarthy: 2 Taylor: 2 Linsley: 1 Bakhtiari: 1 Lewis: 1 Kizer: 1 Kendricks: 1/2 Williams: 1/2

But Warford was sniped by Glen giving Sira1 Jamie Collins. Then Damarious Randall went off the board next. Well played, SirA1. I don't know what the odds of that is.

    I thought I would provide an update on my son William and his cancer journey. He had surgery yesterday as well as a lumbar puncture (spinal tap) and bone marrow aspiration. All went as well as could be expected. The surgeon was able to remove the entire cancerous lymph node in question from his neck as well as several other nodes close by. The spinal and bone marrow procedures went off without a hitch. Now we wait for pathology to confirm the diagnosis. I'm telling you one of the hardest things I've experienced as a parent was watching them take him away for surgery. You have to keep your emotions in check. The last thing you want is to lose your composure. It would freak him out. I just told Will that before he knew it he would be waking up. I have to say he is a pretty tough young man. Three procedures and no complaints. The neck is bothering him more than his back. Another day in hospital and he should be ready to come home. Take care of yourselves.

    Hey Guys, I debated whether to post this or not, but given how long I've been on this site I decided to. Even though I haven't met any of you I consider many of us friends. I have 16 year old twin boys Evan and William. William (who is a big Cowboys fan) has recently been diagnosed with a form of pediatric lymphoma. While it is 100% curable this has been a parents worst nightmare for my wife and I. He has surgery scheduled to remove a cancerous lymph node on Monday June 17. Post recovery he will have to endure a lumbar puncture(spinal tap) and a bone marrow aspiration. The chances of cancer being present in his spinal fluid or bone marrow are slim but the oncologists at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto want to cover off all of their bases. He could not be in better hands. Sick KIds is a world renowned children's hospital. He's a pretty brave kid. Told me he's not scared just frustrated. He doesn't understand why this has happened. I told him it's a freak thing. I don't sugar coat anything with my boys. I told Will that he's in for a rough ride but before he knows it the ride will be over. In time he will forget that this ever happened. His big concerns are will he lose his hair (probably but it will grow back) and given the timeline of treatment this will affect his ability to start the new school year on time. Needless to say I am distracted. If I happen to go off responding to a post you'll know why. Don't take it personally. I hope that my family's experience can serve to give us all some perspective. The trials and tribulations of a sports team don't amount to much when your child is facing down cancer. Cheers everyone. Stay well.

    Power rankings Red Division This is the toughest division in the league. Anybody could take it, in my opinion. 1. Mahomes has weapons now. And I think that takes this offense to a much higher level than last season. Ingram is good out of the backfield, behind what's probably the best line in the league. The only real question on defense is Houston as a 4/3 OLB and rookie Gary in his place on the line. I'd imagine Thompson is on the PS to fix this if/when it doesn't work out. Then the front seven is more than good enough to mask an average secondary. 2. That line though. I don't think it'll be that much of a hindrance with the quartet of Luck, Barkley, Thielon, and Hilton. That's better than about anyone's got in the league. And should put up a ton of points. I'd love this defense if Chubb was at his natural position on the edge and the insane depth of iDL was taken advantage of in the draft. I think that knocks this defense down a peg. Especially with Za'Darius being such an unknown. But it should be much improved from last season. And with that offense, that's probably enough. 3. Rivers, AD, and Coop is a good trio. And the line looks great. The rest of the cast is suspect though. And that's worrisome in this division. But putting up points shouldn't be too difficult. And that's what matters. The dline is nasty. The back seven is more than good enough. Especially those CBs. But I don't know if there's quite enough. 4. Brady and Allen are a great one two punch. Unfortunately, it looks like this offense is gonna have to rely on that. Anderson and Drake in the backfield doesn't inspire much confidence. And I think Ridley is a year away from really being great. But it's impossible to rule out Brady's greatness. Good luck throwing on this defense. Top notch edge defenders with an excellent CB duo behind them will be a problem for everyone. Good run stuffers in the middle round out what might end up the best defense in this division. 5. If Trubisky had one more weapon, I'd probably bump this team up a spot or two. Nuk is a monster but he's the only real threat. Thankfully DJ makes up for it in a big way. But in a division so stacked, it might be a rough go. Defense is alright. There's a great player at every level. But there are some question marks. Especially in the front seven. And that might be a problem. Blue Division 1. Goff has the best WR trio in the league. With two good receiving backs. That can also carry the load. This offense is stacked front to back, top to bottom. Nuff said. Aside from a lackluster LB group, this defense is also pretty stacked. Dline is great. Secondary is great. But everything in the middle might be a problem. 2. A-a-ron would be unstoppable with elite weapons like Goff has. Kelce and kinda Anderson are it, really. Chubb is good in the backfield. Taking Fitz and Dez last season is what put this offense over the top. I'm worried they're gonna take a big step back. And that might hurt with so many playoff hopefuls in this conference. Defense looks great though. No real holes anywhere. And the secondary looks improved over last season's, which only allowed an 84 passer rating. An offense that might regress should be helped greatly by that. 3. An improved line should help what should be the best backfield in the league. And it should give Dak plenty of time to find AB early and often. Unfortunately, there isn't a whole lot else. And that might be an issue. The front seven looks great. But the secondary has some questions. Hopefully the pass rush can help with that. It's an overall solid unit. But I wonder if it can keep the offense in games. 4. Not bad for a first offseason. Cam greatly needed weapons. And he got them. That should help free up Kamara to be the badass he is in real life. Defense is a big question. Secondary looks good. LBs are alright. But three rookies on the line might be rough. Luckily they all have big upside and keeper potential. 5. I just wish Carr had more to work with. Engram is good and will probably lead the team in receiving. But the rest are probably a season away from really being game changers. There are some nice pieces on defense. But I don't think it's gonna be enough to help the offense. Especially in a conference so stacked with offenses. Green Division 1. Seems like every season he has a great QB and trades him away. Then ends up in the playoffs anyway after somehow acquiring another one. This season is no different. Stafford, Fitz, and Ebron are more than enough to deny teams the ability to key in on Zeke. He could even flip and go pass heavy and be fine. Defense is great all around. I think another iDL should've been taken instead of Hughes so Bosa could wreck off the edge. But Hughes is good. It's an embarrassment of riches, really. 2. Oof. Watson with Green and Cooks isn't gonna be fun to play against. But the backfield could probably be a bit better. Luckily the line looks great. So maybe the backfield will be enough to keep teams honest. Defense looks solid. Littleton might be the worst one of the 11 and he could probably start for a few teams here. 3. DangeRUSS. But that might be it. Brate, DJax, and Godwin would be an excellent trio in real life. But I think they'll struggle a bit in the sim. Mack and Johnson in the backfield might struggle. But the line looks good. So maybe not. Secondary looks great. Watt and McCoy are a great duo up front. LBs are ok. This is a decent group overall. But decent might not be enough. 4. Can't really count out Brees. And Kittle is a pain in the ***. But three number three WRs might be too much to overcome. Freeman and Lindsay are ok. The line might make them something to lean on. Defense looks solid all around. Can't really find meaningful holes. But there might not be enough game changers. Yellow Division 1. This might be the best offense the Saints have ever assembled. And that's unfortunate for everyone else. They don't have to run 60% of the time this season to put up points. The offense is unfortunate because, like always, the Saints have put together a truly great defense. Holding teams to 20 or less shouldn't be a problem. This might be the team to beat in the Salsa Conference. And maybe the league. 2. Like a few other teams, there's a QB in place but no one for him to really throw it to. Edelman and DT would be good #2s. And Henry needs to bounce back in real life before he's a threat in the sim. Hopefully Mixon can help carry the team behind a good line. The best dline in the sim. Oof. Secondary is good. LBs are good. There are no real holes on this side of the ball. But it might not matter if the offense struggles. 3. Another case of a good QB with #2 WRs. Good thing Gurley is still l33t. And that line should help him carry this team with no problem. Dline looks great. DLaw, Richardson, and Jackson are all good. The back seven has a ton of questions though. Luckily the aforementioned guys on the line should help make up for it. 4. It's tough to win in this league without a QB. He pulled it off last season. But it might be tougher this time. Dalton is hit or miss WITH a supporting cast. He doesn't quite have that here. But the line should be good enough to open holes for Henry and Blount. Defense looks great at every level. This is another crazy good dline. They're gonna have to step up, I think, if the Venom hope to return to the playoffs. 5. Jimmy G is a serious question. He's probably the worst starting QB in the sim. But the weapons around him are better than a lot of teams have. It'll be interesting to see how that works out. Defense is chock full of potential. But most of it hasn't been realized. And that's more than likely gonna be a problem. Especially with the questions surrounding the QB. Overall 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19.

    @ET80 ET, you played a heck of a game. You were one of the better players when it came to sifting through the BS. Your double vote would have been invaluable in LyLo there at the end but alas you got Dongo'd. Either way you played a good game, you were smart with your votes which is the best thing for a double voter to be. One thing I will note is that early on you were approaching things under the assumption that I had given you and other players the role they wanted but the truth is that you just got lucky and ended up with Cap. @Pickle Rick Pickle, your game was...not so great. In thread you were all over the place. You named like half of the game as scum at some point or another and then when some of them came up scum you pounded your chest about how great you were. In the mean time you never came up with any case on any of them or even really tried to get them lynched beyond saying that some of them voted for you. Out of thread, your night actions were mind-bogglingly bad. You protected yourself up to Night 5 even though no scum was ever going to hit you. Your inability to protect anyone of actual value led to the town investigator dying. One thing I don't agree with is protectors protecting themselves unless maybe it's night 1 and you're a player likely to get hit night 1. Otherwise you're just being selfish, especially if you aren't adding anything to the thread itself. For those reasons, you earned LVP. @DingoLadd I didn't think you played a bad game necessarily but it definitely wasn't a good one either. You honestly stayed pretty far under the radar the whole game. I'm not sure I agreed with your strategy of giving yourself up to be lynched, at least not that late in the game. If you do it earlier in the game when it requires like 10+ people to vote you, you're probably going to have some scum on your lynch train that you can potentially hit. Unfortunately when you got lynched the only people on there were town. It's especially unfortunate that you hit the town double voter who is crucial in the end game. @Malfatron Malf, what a game you had. You were running away with MVP from practically the get go. You redirected the SK into the cult leader and the town vig into scum all on Night 2. That's ******* impressive. Your thread play seemed erratic to me at times because you jump your vote around so much, but in the end your thought processes seemed to start to make sense to me. In the end you didn't get the win but you played better than just about anyone else in the game. If Dome hadn't pulled off the win I was giving you MVP despite not even being town. @theuntouchable Touch, you had a pretty solid game. Your role was pretty tough for someone who doesn't seem to know the source material very well but you did a pretty solid job of picking up on everything anyways, even my extremely phoned in Scarlet Witch item description. Your role was more to call people on counter claims and you never really got a chance to do that unfortunately. Your thread play was good though and your scumdar was on point. @The LBC LBC, it's a shame you died night 2 because I like the way you play. You were playing catch up a lot early in the game but I thought you were pretty insightful and noticed things other didn't. I think scum noticed this too since they killed you so early. Not much else to say unfortunately but I hope to see you play some more and hopefully live longer. @11sanchez11 Also not much to say about you sanchez, dying Day 1 and all. It's just the consequence of being a non-frequent poster on a deadline day 1. Hope to see you play again though. @kingseanjohn I didn't really think the case on you was super strong and think there were probably better lynches to be had day 2 but it happens. You were another victim of just laying low and getting lynched early for it. @Matts4313 So Matts, you earned JVP, named after poster JoeLegend from the old Walter Football forums. As Ragnarok so eloquently put it: LVP is for the person most detrimental to their team. JVP is for the person who makes you want to weep for the human race the most. It all started with you playing the PM game on Day 1 and claiming early. You claimed later on that you were ok with those decisions because they at least sparked discussions and got reactions but the only people you really drew out as suspects were other town. Scum used the chaos you created to continue to lay low. Your arguments were often illogical and random. You tunneled on Swag but then when you got him lynched you suddenly started trying to push his arguments as your own i.e. mission. I also asked you to send in only one move in case Counselor didn't motivate and you used that to go in thread and push for Counselor to motivate you. I didn't appreciate that at all and it's why I didn't bother responding to your questions anymore in PMs. You were also rude and combative to other players constantly than accused others of being that way. The final piece of the JVP puzzle was self hammering in LyLo, a moment that will live in mafia infamy. You can call it bush league but I'd established earlier that a bolded name in thread was a vote and I wasn't going to ignore that simply because it was end game. @Tk3 I definitely screwed up with your role by missing your post during a night phase. I had just woken up at the time night was supposed to end so I was hurriedly trying to get everything done and didn't full catch up. By the time I realized my mistake we were already two more phases down and two scum were dead. I think I made up for it by giving you a full blow revive rather than just having the ability to revert a day phase. Overall you laid low for much of the game which made sense with your role and you were pretty solid in thread towards the end. The only thing I'll ding you on is the Swag thing. I think lynching indy's is kind of a lazy lynch when there is scum still about. Some disagree so it's not too big of a deal but that's one of my only real complaints there. @Counselor You honestly played a pretty good game Counselor. You used your role well throughout the game and despite voting for Matts at the end, you did a good job in thread as well. Two notes: stop threatening to modkill yourself for one lol and secondly, try to be less emotional with your votes. Sometimes you just need to slow down and think things through. @Forge You probably had one of the better town games out there Forge. Besides Malf I'd maybe even say you were the best town player? There's a couple of people close for that spot so it's not a given but you're up there this game. You may not be a leader out there, picking up on every little thing and leading lynches but you do a good job of sorting through the bs and making sense of the information presented to you. It may not sound like much but it's a skill many are lacking. You did well with your ability too, making smart moves with your tracking and even catching TKN. It sucks that I had to modkill you but posting your results before the night writeup is a pretty serious infractions and you can't really give warnings for that stuff. @Utley You were dealt kind of a bad hand here having to replace Danger partway through with all of the baggage that that entailed. I felt like you did a good job of handling the pressure though. You weren't super active but played fairly well in thread. With your ability I didn't like how you protected yourself Night 2 but you more than made up for it by sacrificing yourself for Malf the next night. I really enjoyed you playing and I hope you join us again. @MD4L You did a good job of lying low with your ability. Even when you caught scum (good job by the way) you didn't outright claim, you just pushed him and soft claimed your result. It is a shame you were not protected but either way it was a solid game for you cut too short. @squire12 Great game from you squire truly. Your thread play was on the down low but your two hit targets were literally right on point. You tried to kill TKN Night 2 but were redirected to Orca. Then Night 3 you killed Mwil. Doesn't get much better than that. Some may disagree with using your kills early on but after getting outed by Malf you pretty much had to use the second one early. Good game man. @mission27 I will definitely say that you greatly amused me throughout the game. You really didn't contribute much in thread but once you were converted the laying low actually worked in your favor. You inconsistently used your ability, just really random all over the place. In the end it worked for the most part. @Whicker Whicker, it's a shame that they voted without letting you speak but that's just how it goes sometimes. MD4L had a full blown investigation result on you as Sinister Six so it is what it is. Otherwise I thought you were doing a good job of laying low and contributing in scumchat. Your role investigation of Dongo was really valuable when that lynch happened because it allowed Dome to hold off on voting for him, saving him from death. @TheKillerNacho It sucks that you got caught killing by Forge because I think your inactivity was actually working well for you. It was helping you lie low. In the end though you got caught. It's also a shame that your ability was only able to be useful once and it was because you were redirected to yourself. @MWil23 You played a solid game Mwil and I think your comments in the scumchat were dead on. You weren't able to fully commit because of the outside stuff which led to you being a bit more aggressive, which drew some unwanted attention. Even then you did a good job staying in chat and helping out Dome, talking him down when he was on the edge a couple of times lol @The Orca You caught a lot of attention from people early on and were killed early. It happens but definitely you might want to rethink the way you played early to try to ensure it doesn't happen again. @Dome What a game Dome. Let's get it out of the way that you get MVP. You were down and out, all alone as scum pretty early on. You just keep trucking. I questioned your decision to stick to your fake claim and not troll them as lynch proof but it paid off in the end. You also probably could've gotten some extra hits in late in the game instead of going lynch proof but I get the safe play. Those days where Swag and mission were lynched it felt pretty clear you wouldn't go down. In the end though I can't fault you and congrats on pulling that off. @bcb1213 It sucks that you died so early because I was looking forward to the havoc your role would bring both as recruiter and silencer. In the end I get the mission decision but I think it did bite you a bit since he inconsistently used his ability. Maybe someone else wouldn't have laid low long enough for it to matter and been lynched earlier but still. Not much else to say unfortunately as you died so soon. @Ragnarok I was most disappointed in you dying so soon in the game. I desperately wanted you to gather all of the stones and snap half the game out of existence. Just to emphasize: I really, really wanted that to happen. Oh well, c'est la vie. I will say that I kind of left you an out to not use your move and basically play the survival game if you wanted because you didn't even actually need to kill the people to gain their stone but I can't blame you for going the aggressive route. @SwAg You did some fun stuff like skipping the one night phase and putting three guys on the chopping block but I wish you'd done more. I get why you didn't because you were trying to play for town so they would let you live but still. You almost made it, getting a lot farther than I thought you might. Your thread play was great but you gotta keep things more concise for people. As a narcissist, clearly you're smarter than everyone else but you have to be more persuasive and not just hope that your logic will carry you through. It's unfortunate but it's true. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- All of this being said, I hope you all enjoyed the game. I said I was hoping for a **** show and you guys certainly delivered. It was a lot of fun for me hosting it and I hope it was fun for you guys to play it. Once again congrats to Dome and the whole Sinister Six crew, helluva win guys.

    Guys. Let's 1. stop calling out mods on what they can or can't do and 2. not use threats of mod powers for something game related. There is no situation where either of those turn out well for this game or future games. We should at least have enough respect for the game rack has made to not devolve the game to that point. Come on.

    Stay the course. You traded Mack to get younger and cheaper. Draft well and develop. It's not time for knee jerk trades. The team is 2-3 years away from competing anyway.

    The point of people discussing football and remembering similar experiences from the past together? It would fall in the middle range. Its really the whole point of rooting for Sports teams from a community and everything that follows. Some people take it too far into the green at times though. Does this answer your question?

    Translation: I had concerns about his tackling until after the Browns drafted him. Once the Browns drafted him, I obviously backed the pick and loved it. I love everything that all of my favorite teams do/ever do, except for of course Josh Gordon.

    How can a Cowboys fan believe this when you have had three straight winning seasons with no QB and a great running game?

    Exactly. They have probably been planning this for months. Years even. I'm willing to bet the only reason the Pats even won the Super Bowl was so they could catch Houston red handed at this phony ring ceremony.

    Concepts of the show were fine, execution poor. The Audience was told things were important, and the story focused on massive amounts of development to solidify the importance of those things. Yet the showrunners pulled the rug out to serve subversion. Subversion has a place, but it has to be organic. None of this was. Danny spent seven seasons learning how to rule. Her arc was to learn how to avoid the mistakes of the past, and the Targ flaws. Everyone followed her because they saw something inside of her. The audience was told , and shown this for seven seasons. All of that was immediately undone by three character deaths? That's Anime-Comic book level of character development. Side characters merely existing to feed the main characters development, literally through their life. It means Dannys character wasn't her own, it was a blend of the people around her. And the second those people were gone, so were those aspects of her character. That's incredibly shallow and doesn't really fit with the overall tone of the series. Did she have no true agency until the bells? Was she essentially a blank slate the entire time? The path to the Mad Queen is there, but the issue was the showrunners used shallow short cuts to get to the conclusion they wanted. Jons death and resurrection (you know, the gods placing their fingers on the scales) only served to allow Jon to leave the Nights Watch on a technicality (which he was planning to do anyway). Remove the D&R; the story is exactly the same. It was something the audience was told was super important, and lead to nothing. Jons Parentage was a super cereal reveal dragged along multiple seasons. The way it played out was to help close out two side characters arcs (Varys and Tyrion). Again, people were drawn to Jon as a leader BEFORE it was revealed. Jon was crowned King of the North BEFORE it was revealed. Varys and Tyrion were looking at Jon as a potential leader BEFORE it was revealed. This plot point's whole existence seemed to contrive a wedge between Dany and Jon. Keep Jon as Neds bastard, and does anything change? Everything surrounding Jon was a red herring, meant to set up subversion for the sake of subversion.

    Wasn’t gonna post about this til it was set in stone cause I’ve been kinda jerked around for a minute but I’ve finally been promoted to bartender and start that Wednesday. My income pretty much doubles from that. General manager came up to me after my shift today and said I’m one of the hardest working people there and he doesn’t know how I do it. And it’s cause I went through 5 years of laying around feeling sorry for myself from having cancer and having side effects and illness after and now that I’ve found a way to fight through it I’m driven and willing to destroy myself every day because I can. Things are getting consistently better for me lately.
