Well, he ran a convincing bluff anyway.

I chuckled.

He went from "Only Mason can open it back up" to "if you mod, i'll open it up" to "nope" to "ok let's do this".

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

Very happy with the Frank Clark trade for the Seahawks. He's a great player, but he was the least likable thing about the team for me by far given his ugly past with domestic violence. I would have been happy with just a first-rounder, but a first and a future second is a tremendous haul that would have been solid value even if he was a high-character guy who I liked.

Knowing a few weeks ago that we had all of Russell Wilson, Bobby Wagner, and Frank Clark coming due, I desperately hoped that we would re-up Wilson and Wagner and get away from Clark. Appears to be a good bet that all three will happen.

Gotta tell you, I don't know if I've ever even known of a kicker to be traded, let alone known of a kicker demanding a trade.

I'm sure Chicago would offer them quite a bit to get Gould back after last year's playoff debacle

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

I'm pretty clueless about the actual quality of any NFL Draft prospect, so I never know with any confidence just how good or bad most of the picks are. One of the odd features of the first round to me is always the unexpected pick that leads people to authoritatively state, "They could have gotten him later." Like...how on earth do we know that? The team that just took him surprised people, so we assume that no other team also held him in high regard because Mel Kiper didn't?

Draft grades also seem to be all about how the Kipers of the world had rated the prospect. If it was as simple as using the Kiper big board while accounting for need, who couldn't conduct a good draft?

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

The kipers of the world have the best job in sports. Once a year everyone hangs on your every word. You get to unequivocally state that a team did well or did poorly based on how their actions lined up with your opinions. Matches? They get an A. Different? REACH. You get to cherry pick any stats or comparisons to support your argument. GMs don't want to be called out, so they leak you their picks so that you can hype them up. You being right makes you look good. They getting good grades makes them look good. It's a symbiotic relationship.

And here's the kicker. At no point are you ever graded yourself. By the time the next year runs around nobody cares what you said the previous year. They don't hold you accountable for things you got wrong. The GMs get fired when they make mistakes. You don't.

And you get paid $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

I do desperately miss the days of the NFL Draft starting early on Saturday and being an all-day event. Current format sucks IMO.

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

I have no idea how they do it now but I do remember being a kid and wasting a Saturday every year watching ESPN's scroller for who's next and prediction from people. Fun stuff.

They now do a Thursday night round one, Friday night round two and three, then polish off the rest of the draft on Saturday. Just doesn't do it for me nearly as much.

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

Is GoT over? I see a bunch of garbage about it in my timeline in TwitterLand. There's a very small chance I'll start watching because I didn't want to start watching and have to wait for episodes. Thank you

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

Alright so I've managed to watch like five episodes of GOT - all of which I've previously watched, I started back at the beginning of season two and everything is familiar, but I've needed the in-depth refresher and am now following along better - and am basically enjoying it. Unfortunately, it will just be impossible to catch up by the finale. And unless I just straight-up stop following Twitter (which is a non-starter for me), it will be completely impossible to avoid being spoiled on the finale. Even in the absence of Twitter I'm pretty sure I would get spoiled.

Seems like a problem. Probably should have started chipping away at this issue a while ago.

Posting from the reception of a wedding where the groom and best man greeted each other at the altar by bumping kliq hand signals upon the groomís arrival.

That is all.

Re: Wrestling OT/LC Thread: 346 Days Until Christmas

I'm afraid not. Both the first dance and last dance were modern pop songs (Zedd and Justin Timberlake respectively).

They did, however, hand out complimentary light sabers for their exit walk to the departing limo. They ripped this concept off:

Best and worst entrance theme for first dance sounds like two good questions for your next sheep.

The current sheep is at zero entries, so "next sheep" may be getting ahead of ourselves.

Thanks; I did scroll past that post when I saw it.

Just not going to sweat GOT spoilers too much even though Iíll dodge them where I can. I know itís all but impossible to go totally unspoiled given how much people talk about it.
