  1. OTA's/Minicamp/Training Camp Discussion Thread

    It would have been easy of us to be high on the Bears defense lead by non other than our favorite coach (who is not on our roster) in Big Vic Slamdefensedownyathroatango.
  2. With the NFL trying to expand their brand if they want to expand the season they should add a 17th game and make it neutral/international. Take seeding from the previous regular season - not playoff results and line the afc vs nfc up from #1 to #16 and have 1 vs 1, 2 v 2,... etc, all AFC vs NFC. Have a bye week before and after and have all these games played between weeks 6 to 12. We get to see more AFC vs NFC, the NFL gets to expand their brand and there is another game in the regular season. NFL teams will no longer be forced to give up a home game for international hosting during the regular season. The games played in limit is one of the worst ideas that I have heard.
  3. Dynasty League Start-up.

    I will join, dont beat the rookie to bad please. Take it easy on this old soul. Hopefully I will have a work schedule set soon and when it happens I will let you all know.
  4. Dynasty League Start-up.

    I dont often play fanasty... only twice I think and because of my work I dont know what my scheduled will be for drafting around. I am interested in joining however, but dont want to be the league anchor.
  5. Minor Niner News Thread

    sounds like you have an unwanted addiction, kinda like me when I was young... I use to masturbate a lot - it was an addiction. Then I started having sex, you could say my addiction got out of hand

    are you implying that my boy Franky G will be retired in 5 years? Next year he will return to the 9ers and be a leader on our way to 3 straight super bowl wins.
  7. Game of Thrones - Our Watch has Ended

    COTF created him to fight humans, the dragon glass was part of the spell/magic. Not explicitly stated but implicitly.
  8. Game of Thrones - Our Watch has Ended

    Ignorance is bliss, why go to an art museum when you can just look at the paintings online?
  9. Game of Thrones - Our Watch has Ended

    or maybe if the artist wrote some lyrics and let another musician publish the album in their name, that would be a more accurate "metaphor"
  10. Y2- give me the trade and fallout from it, to busy with to poor an internet to try other options. Plus I want my 4th round punter
  11. Game of Thrones - Our Watch has Ended

    "knew for 4 years" pretty much means when they were writing season 7 (2 year gap between season 7 and 8), so either GRRM left who kills the NK out of his plot outline (they would have known from the beginning) or they changed it and had Bran give Arya the dagger in season 7 so she can kill the NK. It would be impossible to do justice to the song of ice and fire and wrap everything up in 6 episodes so I will settle for what I get. The show has already cut so much out of series idgaf what they do, I look forward to reading the rest of the books and hopefully GRRM can write them in a timely manner before he dies. I will watch the show for the entertainment that it is. Everything that people are complaining about has roots in the fact that the film is past the literature and they lack depth of groundwork they had when covering content from the books.
  12. Game of Thrones - Our Watch has Ended

    I have the same sentiments that Arya should not have been the one to kill the NK, sure it made for a "good story" for the show and I do not have an issue with her character or what she can do. History lesson - Jon's father started a war that would destroy the kingdom based off of prophecy. Yes, Rheagar legitimately married Lyanna and had a child - he may have loved her but the reason that he sacrificed a kingdom to marry her was to produce the prince who was promised who could defeat the NK. You show watchers are enjoying a good story, I have too the show is still enjoyable. It has taken many liberties and changed the world when compared to the books, most changes have been minor, even though this event has outpaced the books it seems an unlikely outcome. The prince who was promised might just be a guy who can unite the necessary people to defeat the NK, who knows. As the name of the series "A song of ice and fire" suggest the two houses of Stark and Targaryen coming together and make Jon Snow, he is important to the story. You poor souls have had to wait 2 years for this last season, those who follow the books have been waiting 8 years and will still wait longer. If you have read the series the show is a bastardized version of all events, I am sure it has been felt by the pacing and depth of the show with recent seasons contrasted against early seasons. They do not have true GRRM content, they have his outline. This is why you hear the pushback by some, this is probably also why there are people upset by who does not die. We will not get a product that will satisfy everyone, I am here to enjoy what is put before me because it is still quality, it is just no longer a masterpiece. I enjoyed the episode, I accept that it has turned hollywood but that will not stop me for enjoying it. I do believe in the books that Tryion will be the third dragon, but a lot on here wont understand that. The problems that I have with the episode is that it greatly differs from where I project the story, it is not an issue with the episode itself.
  13. Game of Thrones - Our Watch has Ended

    Daytime battle does not fit the script, old Nan's stories of the night that lasted 100 years. The 'Night King' chooses his big fight during the day... This episode would have been a joke if it was during the day.
  14. Get an axe and go its johnny mode on it
  15. I would like to go CGJ as my next pick, I am working nights and will be asleep when the draft starts. If I miss any deadlines I will pick as Lynch does.
  16. I would go baby TO with this pick
  17. they jumped the seahawks, feels good man. I prefer greedy here, there will be a good wr our next pick.
  18. Can I still get in this? I would have taken Bosa at #2 or if he were not avaliable Allen. I know this is late but the resulting draft would not have changed my pick here.

    I just hope to get DK Metclaf with the #2 pick, hope that the cards dont take him... (can I get some likes) am I doing this right?
  20. Seahawks extend Russell Wilson QB with a new Contract

    That is stupid money, the only thing worse is that video on his twitter. Have fun with him seattle, but I truly want to see everything fall apart up there.
  21. Game of Thrones - Our Watch has Ended

    Hand of the King - Osha Master of Coin - Craster Master of Whisperers - Walder Frey Lord Commanderof the Kingsguard - Khal Drogo Grand Maester - Ramsay Bolton Osha is a little strange but the ruthless combo of Craster/Walder Frey/Ramsay/Drogo... bring it on!
  22. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    Lynch should not be a GM in this era, the time has passed him by. He does not understand electronic communication and often makes trades by intimidation, other GM's are known to cower in fear as he hurtles towards them in a dead sprint. It is good to have a feared GM but when his idea of communication is to etch words on stone and tie them to large birds of flight the time has passed them by.
  23. 2019 Draft Talk (Draft Order in OP)

    We should have traded that #2 pick for OBJ, cant believe we did not pursue that trade at all.
  24. New Forum - New Random

    It looked like he poured it out, dont know that he drank it. His mouth happened to be underneath the cup at the time of the event tho..
