  1. The Marvel Cinematic Universe

    Disney and Fox isn't a sure thing anymore. Comcast is set to re-offer their bid for fox, and their previous bid was a much larger offer than Disney's. Comcast is just waiting to see if the government approves the ATT- Time Warner deal, if so, we may not see a Disney Fox deal.
  2. Rnd2 pick 25- DT P.J Hall

    I'm skeptical that Reggie and/or Gruden came out and said they had gotten the top two pass rushing DTs on the board. Did they really have Hall ranked above Vea? That just seems odd.
  3. At least Miller and Parker get to practice against mack and Irvin every week. Should help their development.
  4. I think Penn still has a lot left in the tank and can beat out a top ranked rookie for at least half the season, if not the entire season. As long as he's healthy. Very few LT's can step into the league and be great from day one. Caveat, if Penn is healthy I'm thinking he plays at the same level he played at 2 years ago.
  5. The Marvel Cinematic Universe

    http://marvelcinematicuniverse.wikia.com/wiki/Super_Soldier_Serum http://marvelcinematicuniverse.wikia.com/wiki/Winter_Soldier_Program Civil War expands on the Winter Soldiers background more, how he was the first super soldier for Hydra with their use of their serum. And while I agree with your point about the "main bad guy", it's semantics. The point of what I was saying is that the hero usually faces an antagonist who is similar to the hero. In Winter Soldier's case, 2 super solders who've been enhanced facing off against eachother.

    The main villain, the Winter soldier, did. The Russian version.
  7. Rd. 5- DT Maurice Hurst

    I'm wondering why the same scrutiny wasn't applied to Michigan then.
  8. 7th Rd. Pick-WR Marcell Ateman

    For babylon 5 With Bryant, have a hard time seeing who's going to crack into the top 3 in terms of snaps. Should breed some fantastic competition and drive. Interesting to see how far he progresses
  9. ***Spoiler Thread*** Avengers: Infinity Wars

    https://movieweb.com/avengers-infinity-war-arrested-development-tobias-easter-egg/ Ah dang it. Now I have to go back for this reason alone, I missed it.
  10. ***Spoiler Thread*** Avengers: Infinity Wars

    Did anyone else notice when Dr. strange was fighting Thanos, it looked like they were in the mirror dimension for a brief second? Or was that just fancy special effects for the style of fighting he was using?
  11. ***Spoiler Thread*** Avengers: Infinity Wars

    Just saw it. Couple thoughts. Thanos (I believe) got the most screen time. I'm super happy they dedicated the time to build up the bad guy. Amazing bad guys make amazing movies I'm stoked the bad guy won. I actually had asked for that in the previous marvel thread a few weeks back, until I realized..... ....After about a half hour when I realized most of the "newer" heroes died (Black Panther, Dr Strange, Spiderman and the Guardians) and all most of the "older" heroes lived (Ironman, Capt America, Hulk, Black Widow, Thor)..... I figured that is quickly going to be flip flopped somehow. Also, I haven't dug through the whole thread so I haven't seen this mentioned, but does it make sense that Thanos is now also in the soul stone? It looks like Thanos transported there at the end, but could he have "died" from Thor's wound and since he's wearing the gauntlet have just been transported into the same place as where everyone else perhaps went, inside the soul stone? Is this the common thought? There's lot of hints throughout the movie. (The fact that we hear the soul stone is more powerful and is different than the rest of the gems. And that we saw gamora not in her adult state talking to thanos at the end in a strange place, half the universe is now trapped inside the soul stone perhaps with thanos inside also?)
  12. DC Movie Universe

    Anyone think DC bringing in Dwayne Johnson as Black Adam is going to help? I mean, I'll probably go see it in theaters just because he brings is own kind of entertainment value and i know at the very least I'll be amused. And a chance to see Dwayne Johnson's Black Adam fight superman will certainly bring some people to the theaters I'd imagine
  13. The Marvel Cinematic Universe

    As good as the marvel universe is, I'm beginning to have concerns about solo movies. Iron Man solo movies: Faces a villain who gets Ironman tech Captain America Movie 1 & 2: Faces villains who get Superhuman serum tech Hulk Solo movies (albiet outdated) Faced villains who got Hulk gamma-radiation serum Ant Man and Ant Man and The Wasp: Faces villains who get shrinking tech. Dr Strange: faces villains who are the same as him etc, etc. It was fine at first, but it's getting redundant now 22 movies in. At least Thor and Guardians face unique villains. But I'd really like to see more solo movies that face unique villains that have their own unique traits. There are so many good villains out there to take advantage of, Spiderman did this very well.
  14. 2018 Free Agency Thread v2

    As much as I hate having such a glaring need so late in the preseason, there's still a ton of time left to acquire one. Round of cuts to 53, trades, etc. At some point some teams are going to have draft picks playing better than expected, or will need cap space, etc, and there will be decent players jettisoned.
  15. Round 6: Azeem Victor, LB, Washington

    Anyone want to garner some insight on him? He's one prospect I don't know much about other than he was hot stuff in 2016 and fell off the face of the earth last season. Did I read correctly that he was benched last year?
