  4. Mariners fans only fear sorcery, as the only form it takes for us is everything going wrong. This is the slowest offseason in recent memory. On the HoF front, it looks like Edgar Martinez is gonna miss the Hall this year by one vote, which would be pretty on brand for this team's offseason
  5. Yes, but Jon doesn't get all this attention only after he becomes a political power and even after the election not all the attention he gets is because of his power. Also it was never my intention to compare how hotter Jon is than Stannis but perhaps more of a personality or attitude comparison. I know the first post wasn't very clear on it so now it states that. I don't think Danaerys will see Jon anytime soon and unless GRRM wants to service cut specifically for fans of the abomination turned into fans of the book, I don't see anything between her and Jon. I am myself a watcher turned reader after the first season and I am disgusted by the idea of it (and by the show also for the last season or three) On physical attraction: Yes, exactly! Throughout the series we don't get to see Jon from eyes of many women since he leaves early on in the series to join an all male order with wovs of celibacy. PoVs aren't objective and they shouldn't be; Arya sees him nothing but a brother, Sansa less than that. Catelyn is only able to see him as a reminder of honorable Ned's infidelity and humiliation of her and also a threat to her son since not only he is the only Stark looking male among the pups, but he bests Robb at almost anything. This isn't an objective view and even on Ned she isn't objective, comparing him to his taller brother. Cersei only ever gets a glimpse of Jon Only person we get to learn from whether Jon is physically attractive is Ygritte. We don't have a PoV on say, Val or Alys or Morna or even Shireen, since people have suggested her too.
  6. I forgot that Counterpart was starting this month. It looked really interesting and I will definitely be checking it out.
  7. I guess I have gained as many spots as I can, from 7th to 3rd in a few weeks. It was a fun season again!
  8. Today
  9. Just thinking that back this time in 2014 I am thinking rather Nick Foles will be able to win the Eagles a Superbowl. His 2013 season was incredible, led the team to the division title at 10-6, and look to be the QB to run Chip Kelly's offense. In the playoffs against the Saints his last throw was a TD but left too much time for Drew Brees and lost to the Saints on a FG as time expired. Then in the 2014 season he lead the Eagles to 6-2 but was having a mediocre season, and then Foles got injured and the Eagles missed the playoffs at 10-6 under Mr. Butt-Fumble. In the off season we traded Foles to St. Louis Rams for Bradshaw and felt very indifferent. The team then revolted and ousted Chip Kelly and salvage out a 7-9 season in 2015. We then got a coach with connections to Andy Reid, traded up for Carson Wentz, traded Bradshaw to the Vikings a week before the start of the season, and proceeded to a promising 7-9 2016 season while Foles was a back-up in Kansas City. Foles was picked up in the off-season to be the team's back-up and a team looking to get to 10 wins. The team was at 10 wins by week 12 with Wentz playing at a MVP level. Then came the game against the Los Angeles Rams and Wentz busted his leg rushing for a TD that was called back on a Penalty. Wentz finished the drive with a Franchise Record setting TD pass on a 4th down play. The Rams scored a TD on their next possession, and Foles proceed to put together two drives for FG and the Eagles eked out a win. Foles had a great game against the Giants in a win, and mediocre in a win against the Raiders which clinched the 1st seed at 13-3 (Dallas game was irrelevant). Now, I am thinking if Nick Foles can win the Eagles Superbowl in two weeks against the defending SB champs Patriots who the team lost to in SB XXXIX (played in Jacksonville) when they were the defending SB champs (only time Patriots were back-to-back champs). Also, 2004 playoffs Eagles beat Minnesota Vikings and then the Atlanta Falcons to reach the SB while this year we beat the Falcons and then the Vikings. Do not how much this will go in strange and odd story but it has given me one hell of a ride. Foles' 2013 Season 2014 Season
  10. Roose is quite certain Ramsey killed his true born son Domernic, then tells Theon that he was uncertain on how to deal with it. Which is one of the only times that I can think of in which Roose was indecisive. Ramsay killed him. A sickness of the bowels, Maester Uthor says, but I say poison. In the Vale, Domeric had enjoyed the company of Redfort's sons. He wanted a brother by his side, so he rode up the Weeping Water to seek my bastard out. I forbade it, but Domeric was a man grown and thought that he knew better than his father. Now his bones lie beneath the Dreadfort with the bones of his brothers, who died still in the cradle, and I am left with Ramsay. Tell me, my lord … if the kinslayer is accursed, what is a father to do when one son slays another?
  11. I think it's debatable on whether or not Baelish could be on that list as well. He's brilliant with numbers and cooking books. He's also shown he has incredible foresight.
  12. Bunch of things thinking about that Eagles blow-out. -The first thing that jumps to my mind is how the Eagles don't SEEM to have a QB problem any more. Foles looks confident and strong back there and has 3 legit scary targets to throw to. -Meanwhile the Eagles D seems as good as ever. -Never been happier to see a 2-week bye with Gronk's injury. Concussions are freaky things and, hopefully, Gronk gets better by THIS Sunday and works it out from there. No Gronk crushes the Pats chances. -FO and 528 seem to have the sense of it- Pats as a favorite, but not a huge one (60-40 ish) -One of the biggest advantages the Pats have is SB experience. I used to not believe that was a thing, but last year showed me otherwise. The Pats had a HUGE advantage in experience over the Falcons and it showed as the game wore on. That MAY be something to look at this time around. -The Vikings were a tad overrated but I never thought they would be THAT outclassed today. I honestly expected the Pats to blow out the Jags and for the NFC game to be close, not the other way around.
  13. Well the Maesters seem to have their own agenda. The seem as much about dogma as they do about knowledge. Barbrey Dustin seems to have a point about them, even if she's more than a bit jaded.
  14. Umm good lol? They're a bunch of savages who contribute absolutely nothing to society.
  15. Yes. I awknowleged he released Donnel Lock in exchange for his nephew. The Freys had something he wanted and thus a trade was made. And to answer you're question no and I've stated such previously in this thread. What they can realistically fear from Tywin is something less but still horrifying; being made destitute through having their bridge seized in favor of a house that has proven that they could be trusted.
  16. Until technology reaches the point where labor intensive positions are no longer required for a large civilization to support itself, slavery or serfdom are the defaults. Honestly, I never really understood the Westerosi taboo on slavery, when the serfdom there was pretty much just as bad.
  17. HE RELEASED FREYS WHEN THEY WERE ACTIVELY AT WAR WITH THE LANNISTERS. Honestly at this point I don't even know why I am debating this. You think he's going to wipe them out after they abandon Robb's alliance? GTFO
  18. I was in a Yahoo public league this year, one of the teams was a guy by the name of Burtdog, and his whole team was Eagles with a few ex-players (Shady, Maclin) sprinkled throughout. I hope he's getting hammered right now, in two weeks he's gonna be real sad.
  19. Just when you want CNN to be reporting. Oh well, we all needed a break, right?
  20. I would imagine it depends on the lord in question. Some would harsher and less forgiving than others. But I don't know if they would have them excuted. The Wall is an option I suppose.
  21. I honestly don t remember how he ignited the sword. And then we have another big problem. As magic is coming back was thoros unable to ignite a sword with his blood before but is able to do it now? How would beric even think of using blood to ignite a sword?
  22. I've gone back 4 or 5 pages but I don't see any mention of Counterpart. I just caught the first episode, and I see the second one is scheduled for January 28th. The premiere was first broadcast back on December 10. It looks like it's going to be really interesting. J.K. Simmons (Law and Order, Spider-Man movies, Whiplash etc etc) plays Howard Silk, a long term employee in a weird government bureau, where he signs in in the morning, changes out of his clothes into a generic suit along with his co-workers, and the they all line up in front of identical doors and walk into tiny rooms with a glass partition, where another generically dressed man walks in on the other side, sits down, and they both open their briefcases and the man pulls out a file folder and reads out a list of comments, answered by Silk. The comments are like something out of a cheap spy novel, statements and counterstatements, like, The weather is nice in the summer, and My mother hates the heat but she lives in the south. Silk applies for a promotion and the director essentially laughs at him and then tells him the job has been filled. Silk doesn't actually know what they even do in the bureau. The fellow who gets the job is murdered. Then Silk is called into a meeting in a concrete room with the nasty looking Director of Operations. A mystery man who is passing them information is brought in with his head covered in a hood. The hood is pulled off to reveal....Howard Silk. Sometime early in the cold war an experiment went seriously wrong. But as a result, in the building where Silk works, which appears to be in Germany although all the workers appear to be British or American, there's a door that when you walk through it leads to a parallel universe. Everyone has a double. The worlds were identical until the door was opened and they started exchanging information, then histories started to diverge. And now an assassin has crossed over to start killing people. Here's a trailer. It covers more than the 1st episode. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xxbxo_NfvM0
  23. If I recall correctly Thoros uses wildfire dipped steel to fake a magic sword. In the books the only character to fight with a real burning blade is Beric, after he cuts his hand. Have we seen Thoros do the same?
  24. 14-16. Brandon was born in 262 and Cat was born either in 264 or 265, she was 12 when she was betrothed so Brandon could have been as old as 16 when it happened. But as I pointed out, Ned is not as political as his father was portrayed. With his best friend as King and the Lords of the Vale and the Riverlands his in-laws he is likely under less pressure to have his sons marry so early. Maybe if there was an offer of another Lord Paramounts daughter on the table Robb would have been betrothed earlier, but as the most eligible bachelor in the North Ned probably was happy to wait for the right offer.
  25. Maybe, but that's not what I'm talking about. Sounds like something that would cost you a job. Ever wonder how there are already reviews for books on their publish date? That's because publishers and authors often distribute some pre-release versions of the books to journalists, bloggers, reviewers, etc. They're usually made of the cheapest materials possible and sometimes the contents will change a bit, but it's a way to get the word out. Martin may not do this, as he certainly doesn't need to "get the word out" but with the smaller authors especially, it's sometimes as easy as emailing them if they interact with their fan base. Either way, once those start floating around, sometimes even going up for sale once they're read, still before the publish date, the spoilers commence.
  26. Uniting all the wildlings and launching a perhaps the largest attack on the wall doesn't count? Especially when you consider as King Beyond the Wall, he's at the very minimum partially responsible for the conduct of his men.
  27. There are leaks about books? like the people that work at the publisher firm take photos of the text and put it in the net?
