  1. Trades you want this year

    I don’t really care about trades, I’m just ready to not hear about Bell.
  2. WEEK 6 - GDT Steelers @ Bengals

    He’s like 4 extra draft picks, what a bargain.
  3. WEEK 6 - GDT Steelers @ Bengals

    Every golfer. I swear there could be a tornado taking out hole 4 and at hole 5 you’ll find a golfer teeing off. Golfers are a different breed ?
  4. WEEK 6 - GDT Steelers @ Bengals

    I don’t get the logic of challenging the spot when we were clearly short of the first down. Then a potential scoring play you just sit on it when you actually have the chance to win it? Stupid.
  5. WEEK 6 - GDT Steelers @ Bengals

    Burfict special
  6. Troy Polamalu is easily my favorite player I watched first hand. Seriously miss watching him play, such an exciting player.

    Did you guys see that game winning Kick for the Browns? That was the saddest kick I had ever seen that actually won a game, I thought for sure someone had gotten a hand on it.
  8. GDT Week #5 Steelers vs. Falcons

    The only way I can think of to discribe this match-up...
  9. Seriously this game would be perfect if it had the 4 team playoff. One more year and we could have at least had the playoffs and been on the current generation consoles. Interesting that Kansas State is that good. Usually they hardly even finished ranked on my dynasties. Army and Navy and a few other odd balls always end up being highly ranked for me though. Bummer you didnt get a better Bowl game match-up. Just don’t lose the game ?
  10. Best movie trilogy of all time?

    Back to the future is probably my favorite, although it gets a little redundant. Maybe not the best but I think it’s worth mentioning the Riddick trilogy. Not huge on Star Wars or Lord of the Rings, they just don’t hold my interest enough to watch the entire trilogy. Which is the downfall of most trilogies.
  11. Week 4 Gameday Thread

    Browns got hosed pretty hard.

    “Army leaders said they signed up about 70,000 new active duty recruits in the fiscal year that ends Sept. 30 — well below the 76,500 they needed. The Army National Guard and Army Reserves also fell far short of their goals, by more than 12,000 and 5,000 respectively. The Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps, meanwhile, all met their recruiting goals for 2018.” https://www.google.com/amp/www.foxnews.com/us/2018/09/24/army-misses-2018-recruiting-goal.amp.html Good catch, that’s pretty good news for Jonu. I myself am now going to go get a new phone number and address before they start calling me. ?

    I haven’t looked that game footage up but a friend of mine said McAfee was just straight up eye balling the C gap the whole way. McAfee is absolutely hilarious though and a great story teller. E-D REED BOY Can we bring his corpse back to punt for us? I don’t care how out of shape he is, what his knees are like or how plastered he might be. Just come punt for us so I don’t have to murder Berry.

    @jonu62882 Have you taken the ASVAB? That would be a good first step if you can score good. If you show good test scores you may have better luck speaking with a recruiter. Keep in mind I have no real experience with this as when I joined I was 18 and had recruiters begging me to talk to them after taking the ASVAB. As far as I understand it the maximum age you can join the military is 42 set by Congress. Each branch has its own max age, currently the Army’s is set at 35. That can fluctuate depending on recruiting needs. So you need to find a recruiter that is willing to take the time to get a waiver request sent in, which from what iv read the recruiter also has their own recommendation on the waiver request. With that said you’re going to want to look as good as you can academically and physically. As far as getting a recruiters attention I’d bug them until they realize you’re serious about making it happen. They would rather go after the 18 y/o that thinks the army is going to be rainbows and gummy bears than put in extra work helping you get a waiver. To be honest I don’t like your chances with the Ranger School/Airborne Contract. You’ll already be fighting an uphill battle getting the age waiver. Fight for it if that’s what you want, just know that’s something you are going to have a very tough time getting. You’ll want to be in very good physical condition and health. Those schools are no joke and can take a toll on your body. you can also get those schools with out it being in your contract. I was never into that high speed stuff so I don’t know what all the requirements are to get into the schools either. October is the new fiscal year for the military, that’s typically when training slots open up and are more available.
