  1. 2019 Draft in Nashville

    Most major cities have major traffic issues.
  2. 2019 Draft in Nashville

    I'll explore attending the draft.
  3. Rich getting richer

    Miami had a good group of DBs and added Fitzpatrick. (The LBs were terrible in coverage. Miami had good coverage stats vs WR)
  4. Anime and Manga Thread.

    Death Parade (A-) This is one of the smaller % of anime that DIDN'T start as a manga. As mentioned, it's the spiritual successor to Death Note. I don't think it needs a second season because doing these bar games a second time takes the novelty away from the series. This and No Game No Life would be the two series I'd recommend for those new to anime and want to take in a single short season (12-episode) series. Assassination Classroom (B+) I can see why some, especially those who like more violence in their shounen given the title of the series, might not like this one. It wouldn't be surprising if the person who created this story was a former educator, or had educators in his family. There's a lot of profundities about teaching and life in general here. It's a also a nice commentary on the student-teacher relationship and the Japanese school system (which I may do some teaching at in 2020). It got better in the second season and really good as it went along towards the end, IMO. First season a B, second a B+. Ending an A-. So B+ it is for the series. FLCL (B) This one also didn't start as a manga. "When the three powerhouse creators of Eden of the East, Gurren Lagann and Neon Genesis Evangelion bumped heads, they spawned the series that broke all the rules - then broke the mold." Oh boy. So much has been said about this one and I was excited to watch it. I actually ordered the Bluray from Amazon. It's the subject of much debate about what this somewhat ambiguous story is actually about, although puberty, sexuality, and growing up are three generally agreed-upon themes. There's surely a lot to explore in these short 6 episodes, but FLCL is so loud, obnoxious and offputtng that I don't care to examine this story any further - a story I didn't find too interesting in the first place. I won't be watching the new series.
  5. Your Team: What are you most looking forward to?

    Hoping Tannehill picks up where he left off pre-injury in late 2016.
  6. FIX your team thread.

    I wonder if he tries to bet on him self with a 1-year deal in 2018 so he see if some team is desperate enough to give him the much larger 3-year max deal in 2019. (He'd qualify for the "7-9-yr" vet max deal in 2019)
  7. Deadpool 2

    There's a trailer for a very dirty Muppets-style parody movie beforehand. It was so unexpected and so outrageously crass and funny, it almost stole some of DP's thunder. The Happytime Murders
  8. Deadpool 2

    Really good
  9. FIX your team thread.

    Not my team, but the local team: ATLANTA HAWKS: I'd use my 30M in cap space this offseason to sign Aaron Gordon (RFA) and Mario Hezonja. With Schoroeder on the team + the new additions, I'd draft JJ Jr and start an identity as a smaller-ball team that's predicated on speed, athleticism, D, and getting to the basket. I think JJ Jr's length + athleticism will play well at C defensively. He can play away from the basket and make room for Gordon, DS, and Hezonja cutting and driving to the basket. Maybe I'd package Collins in a trade to get KB or Plumlee off the books and go after a bigger fish in 2019.
  10. This is America

    I think most people agree there is a problem, but the there are two factions, almost diametrically opposed, as to who's at fault for these problems. And each groups' stance is offensive to the other group. Nothing will get done because of this.
  11. 11 Months Too Early Mock

    I'd give my left nut to have two Top 5 picks in this draft. Miami needs young DL fixtures.
  12. This is America

    I think Twitter and social media aren't helping. They're turning big topics into drive-by commentary opportunities for everyone with an opinion and internet access.
  13. This is America

    I feel like since Trayvon Martin and Sandy Hook, these have been the 2 biggest non-Trump issues everyone talks about consistently.
  14. 11 Months Too Early Mock

    Oliver or Bosa would be great.
  15. This is America

    I live about 3-4 miles from where Glover grew up.
