  1. This Aint Packers Talk v69

    Yep, it's become a stupid league. I'm just amazed at how often people seem to think the NBA is approaching NFL levels. It needs to either simplify its stupid salary cap thing (I can't make heads or tails of how it even works), or it needs to delete at least 4 teams. Even baseball has more parity than the NBA now it seems.
  2. This Aint Packers Talk v69

    Lots of those around. I used to be a Lakers fan until the NBA completely ruined all its credibility. Lakers used to be in Minnesota before the Bucks, so lots of people picked the Packers and Lakers due to being raised that way. I think most fans of teams are fans of those teams because their parents/grand parents/ great grand parents started following those teams and passed them down the line. I'm just glad my grandpa lived in Wisconsin before moving to Minnesota and eventually North Dakota.
  3. Wide Receiver Outlook

    Lots of discussion on receivers, not a lot of discussion in a receiver thread. Basically, I wanted to see if complaints of our receiving corps were merited compared to other teams. I was going to go through and compare our receiving depth to other teams in the league. I got through our division and one other division and I concluded that yes, our depth does indeed suck. The only teams I got to that possibly had a worse receiving corps than ours were the Cowboys and the Redskins. We have to add somebody there. Unless one of our rookies shows a ****ton during camp. Problem is that if we wait until after camp, there might not be anybody left. And this Dez Bryant talk seriously, seriously, seriously has to die. The Cowboys have a crap receiving corps and they cut him. We all know it's not about money with Jerry Jones, so if they cut him... You can look at other cuts and see a reason for it. The Niners cut a lot of veteran defenders because they're rebuilding their defense and the players were flat out old or didn't fit their new scheme. The Cowboys invested a first round pick in Dez, Jerry loved Dez, the Cowboys don't have squat at WR... Dez hasn't seen double coverage since 2014. People like to point to his 15.9 yards per reception in 2016. I'm not buying it as relevant. It was on only 50 receptions, and the Cowboys were very clearly the scariest running team in the league that year.

  5. ****Spoiler Thread**** Solo: A Star Wars Story

    It's sad that this spoiler made me want to see the movie more than Han Solo.
  6. Boba Fett to be directed by James Mangold

    Every single major Hollywood movie released makes money. Every single one. Even John Carter made money. It's not about making a profit, it's about how much of a profit. How many mega budget R-Rated movies are out there? People don't really buy blu rays all that often except for kid movies for their kids. It's why Pixar and Disney movies are always 30 dollars. Always, except for their first few weeks of release. Every other movie goes down in price, and R-rated movies go down in price significantly faster. It's why I never buy R-rated movies during their first few weeks because they always go down in price relatively quickly. So we're talking about movie studios. Hundreds of millions of dollars go into making a movie, and then they're typically advertised for hundreds of millions more. When you're talking about hundreds of millions of dollars spent on a movie, you are NOT risking that kind of loss. These movies never ever ever ever ever experience a loss. Even movies that bomb, like the recent Ghostbusters movie. It bombed, and it bombed HARD, but it has still made its money back through television runs, blu ray sales, toys etc. Just compare it to your own investment moves. If you were promised eleven dollars total on a ten dollar investment over 2 years, you probably would just say nah, I'll keep my ten dollars. If you were promised one hundred and ten dollars over a year on a 100 dollar investment, you might still say no thanks. But if you were guaranteed 150 dollars in a month plus another 50 dollars over the next year on a hundred dollar investment, you'd probably make that investment. Deadpool was made for 58 million. It made a BUNCH, and its sequel was only given a 110 million budget. That's for a character that has been around for a long time and has sold toys and comics and other ancillary markets well for the past x amount of years without a movie. Other than Deadpool and comic book movies, how many big budget movies can you think of? Then look at the Star Wars movies that already exist. Rogue One was made for 200 million. Force Awakens for 245 million. 45 million less for Rogue One because the characters die and it was the most adult Star Wars movie ever made. It would take at least 150 million to make a Star Wars movie of any kind, so a Star Wars movie will 99% never be rated R. Even if they used a character like Darth Maul for it, ask yourself how many Darth Maul toys have sold compared to Luke Skywalker toys. It's very low comparatively. So if you have a movie with dark characters and morally grey heroes, you're not getting those ancillary market sales.
  7. Boba Fett to be directed by James Mangold

    I don't think they should even do solo movies honestly. Just do trilogies. If you want to explore solo stories, have an HBO Original Series. Also, Disney is never making an R-Rated Star Wars movie. Star Wars movies are not made for the box office, they are made for ancillary markets. You're not going to get a bunch of kids buying a bunch of toys from a movie that they can't watch.
  8. What Are You Thinking About v.CC

    I don't have a problem with vegans. I was a vegan for 7 years. I have a problem with hipster eaters who care more about eating ridiculous concepts and acting like it's good and telling everybody it's good and acting like you're uncultured swine if you don't like how it tastes even though THEY don't even like how it tastes.

  10. 2018 Free Agency - Prospects for GB

    If Gute makes one free agent/trade move after June 1st cuts and during the regular season, we're winning the Super Bowl this year.
  11. What Are You Thinking About v.CC

    Pretty soon hipster restaurants will start growing gardens on the tables. It will be like a hibachi restaurant. There will be a chef who picks the vegetables right in front of you, washes them, then cuts the salad and serves it. There will be a fruitarian table where only vegetables that have fallen off will be used. They will also make burgers from scratch. A wheat farm will be the centerpiece of the restaurant and they will have a baker prepare the flour from scratch. Rice and potatoes will also be grown for gluten free options. For the meat, they will grind up a bunch of vegetables, then mix it in some flour and spices and cook it up right in front of you. It will be called Hipachi Bistro. *Trademarked.
  12. Board Games (Reviews, Rules, Regulations, Random)

    Where do you guys find people to play these games with? I've been trying to find enough players to play The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31 and I've got exactly two other people who want to play. Also, has anyone played it yet?
  13. Wrestlemafia, the sign up and game thread

    Like totally after BB. And there's only one Jeff on this site. At least for one more year.
  14. Wrestlemafia, the sign up and game thread

    You say this for literally every single game you play and you are always inactive AF. Also, you playing Survivor?
