  1. 1970s Horror - Official FF BMET (Poll)

    Went with The Exorcist. TCM was a close second, but I've never been as scared watching a movie as I was when I saw The Exorcist, and it still gets me to this day.
  2. You're going to regress a little, just accept it and make sure you hit it hard when you're fully recovered. As for the timetable, do what your body will let it. Give it a few weeks of rest and then start off light and inch closer to your norm until your body tells you that's too much and go from there.
  3. I had it Hooker 3-2, but another super close fight. Dan seemed punk drunk in the octagon interviews though. Normally he's calm and collected and still talking smack, but Hardy had to force in a question about who he wants next. Not sure why, but I found it really awkward.

    Love this show.

    Never pass up a chance to use my go-to gif.

  8. 1990s Horror - Official FF BMET (Polling Thread)

    x2. Let's not over-complicate this tournament like everything else nowadays.
  9. Podcasts!

    I just finished season two today after this recommendation and loved it. Hoping they do a third season but I don't see one planned.
  10. General Season Talk

    Thanks for explaining that. I always had trouble figuring out how the player could still get the exact same amount of money without it being the same cap hit, but that makes sense.
  11. The Travel Thread

    Just got back from Thailand a few weeks ago. If anyone gets the chance to go there, I'd avoid Bangkok and focus more on Chiang Mai and Phuket. Bangkok is super humid and insanely crowded. Chiang Mai was cooler and there was a lot more to do outside of the city and Phuket, while pretty touristy, and beautiful when you made it outside of the city.
  12. General Season Talk

    Yeah I'm not even sure how this is even feasible but if it's possible to have Slay and Ramsey in our secondary without sacrificing someone of importance, I'm all for it. Something tells me there are a few restructures on the way. Can someone more cap-savy explain to me how converting money into a player's roster bonus frees up cap? I've never understood it and it seems like if a player is owed $5 mil, it's coming out of the cap no matter where it comes from.
  13. Really Weird Stuff

    I agree with this. For example, when I leave for work in the morning, my dogs have no concept of why. They are unhappy I'm leaving, and happy when I return, but the concept of having to go to work, to make money, to pay bills/be able to eat, etc is something that they literally can't comprehend. There is so much going on outside of their world that they don't understand and it would be ignorant to think that there aren't things out there that are outside of our comprehension as well (at least for right now).
  14. Want To Win A Super Bowl? Don't Pay Your QB.

    I'd be curious to see if instead of just comparing QBs, you compared the highest paid player on the team (regardless of position). If you pay a LT or a WR an insane amount of money, that's still less money you can spend on the rest of your team. It just so happens that QB contracts are often a lot larger, but I wonder what the comparison of winning percentage would be if you added teams with an average QB contract along with one or two large ones from other positions.
  15. General Season Talk

    Agreed. It's like having a 25 year old franchise QB who's already been to a Superbowl is a bad thing.
  16. 1990s Horror - Official FF BMET (Nominations OPEN)

    Let's not over-complicate this like everyone does with everything nowadays. Silence of the Lambs is close enough to fitting this category that anyone making a stink of it is just looking to be difficult. My other two noms would be Scream and Halloween, but SotL should take this fairly easily.
  17. Unpopular Opinions: Entertainment edition

    Winter Soldier is the best Marvel movie by far. I don't think that one followed their formula at all.
  18. Astros cheat-Lunhow/Hinch fired-Manfred clueless

    But you can't base the theory that he bet against his team off of the fact he's been caught lying before. You still have some sort of evidence or else it's just a conspiracy theory. No matter which you believe though, it's definitely a reach to penalize him for the games that he didn't bet on like the previous poster said because he doesn't gain anything from not betting.
  19. Astros cheat-Lunhow/Hinch fired-Manfred clueless

    Has there been any evidence showing otherwise? I'm genuinely asking because if not, it's just something someone made up that got legs.
  20. Astros cheat-Lunhow/Hinch fired-Manfred clueless

    That's a stretch to penalize him for the games he didn't bet on. Every bet he placed was on his team winning, so he never gained anything from his team losing and therefore there was never a conflict of interest.
  21. Unpopular Opinions: Entertainment edition

    (but I agree)
  22. Birds of Prey

    Did you see the movie?
  23. Yeah, I hate knocking anyone for something like that sitting on my couch, but the guy was aware enough to literally ask "If I say I can't fight, I get the win right?". That's a punk move. Pereira doesn't deserve the win though for being a giant moron though.

  25. 2010s Horror - Official FF BMET (Polling Open!)

    I went with A Quiet Place because I wasn't sure if it would make another list, but my second vote would've been IT.
