    Disappointed. I was fully expecting a ban by the 8th post.

    I Need Some Advice From Homeowners

    Sit out there a few evenings with a bottle of gin and a shotgun. Or just extend the fence.
  5. What’s up with the hand to the ground before every snap? I saw a few of this year’s prospects doing that. Seems to me it would key the D-Line onto the timing of the snap. Just curious. He does look really good, even though his line was asleep all game.

    Dog or Cat Person

    Definitely dogs over cats. I just enjoy them more. It’s hard enough to get humans to like me, I don’t want to have to work for a cat’s attention. I have Italian Greyhounds and they’re just awesome animals. Totally devoted and want nothing more than to be right next to you. It’s definitely a trade off, though. Personal time and space are a thing of the past and it’s pretty much eliminated any hopes for vacations or travel. We had to put our oldest dog down a couple of weeks ago, and it’s been way more difficult than I anticipated. She was half beagle and stubborn as hell, but just one of the sweetest souls- and loved beer.

    Movies We've Seen Thread

    Kurosawa was one of the last great film geniuses. If you like Yojimbo, you must check out Sanjuro. His recreations of Shakespeare in feudal Japan were great also (Throne of Blood is amazing). Lucas was inspired by the Hidden Fortress when he made Star Wars. Toshiro Mifune is still one of my favorite actors. He could be a bit heavy handed, but his ability to convey emotion just by shrugging his shoulder in a certain way made me understand an actors role better than just about one else. His work in the Samurai trilogy was about as on point an actor could be. New movies just aren’t the same. Well, most of them.

    New Unis?

    The 80’s logo resembles waaaay more tire logos than the current one

    New Unis?

    These are always funny and seem to give big hints at who grew up in what era. I like the throwback stuff. Personally, I really like the current unis and have always hated the look of the 80’s/early 90’s ones. That kelly green is just so bleh to me and that logo just doesn’t do it for me. I think they were the best in the 60’s and late 90’s. And I def think the current logo is great. Quick question about the helmets, though. I was under the impression they couldn’t have green helmets because of the color of the field.
  12. The safety jokes have leapt to the top of my hate list the past year. Somehow they’re always presented as if the speaker had never heard it before and was really comin up with a good one. “Watch(ing, ed) the tape” has been and will always make my teeth itch. Bad nicknames for coaches, players, owners based on their name, ie: Bowels, Maccgag, Snatchez, etc. Hate them.
  13. Maybe Mac would be happy with one of three qbs, and a trade up to two would simply cost more for they want. In our world it’s 1 & 2 and then the rest. It may be 1, 2 & 3 then the rest for the Jets. Why trade up to two if you can still get a guy at 3 that they want? That seems way more likely than “Mac is asleep at the wheel,” or the “Giants have it in for the Jets” conspiracy. Seems like we’re upset at other people for stuff we’re making up in our heads. This draft can’t come soon enough.
