  1. NFL 2016: Is there a draft in here or is it just me?

    New NFL Draft wisdom: Draft picks = Monopoly money? Mrs. PotN is excited about her Vikes picking next!
  2. NFL 2016: Is there a draft in here or is it just me?

    Ouch! Well, my Lions fan colleague should be happy!
  3. NFL 2016: Is there a draft in here or is it just me?

    Yeah, that's what i thought but I'm also referring to his altercation with a couple of Vegas hookers over price that cost him his commentator gig. I wonder if he thinks that couple hundred buckswas worth it?
  4. NFL 2016: Is there a draft in here or is it just me?

    Do you mean, a great player AND a total screw-up?
  5. NFL 2016: Is there a draft in here or is it just me?

    Oh, undoubtedly. Unfortunately, now teams are forced to try to get to the bottom of it and it's costing him big time. So now either he really is a total screw-up or he's probably gonna have a huge chip on his shoulder. I hope for his sake it's the latter.
  6. NFL 2016: Is there a draft in here or is it just me?

    Yeah, Kolber said the "official" line from his agent is that the photo goes back to high school.
  7. NFL 2016: Is there a draft in here or is it just me?

    Strange! Not long ago, I would have scoffed at "MyTwitter was hacked!!!" Now, I'm like...yeah, it could happen (but it's still unlikely) And, yes, some team is probably gonna get a steal on Tunsil now.
  8. Be Honest! How many of your own theories ever played out?

    My thinking was really as simple as, in my opinion at the time, just picking up on what I thought Martin was suggesting to readers with the symbolism of the "Three-Eyed Crow". I knew that a member of the Night's Watch is known as a "crow" and a euphemism for having magical ability is "opening one's 'third eye'". From there I just thought:who was the only member of the Night's Watch that we've been told was also rumored to be a sorceror? You guessed it, Brynden "Bloodraven"Rivers Now, I doubt any of those threads are still around because they would be over ten years old. Also, many threads were lost in a more recent board upgrade. But I'll look around and definitely post a link if I can find it
  9. You are so right! Sansa is the "Holy Grail" in Brienne's quest, not the reason for the quest! The reason Brienne wants to find her is to do the right and honorable thing for herself and for those she made vows to! Brienne is steadfastly trying to embody those qualities that make for a good knight, no matter what, and that's what the soiled knight Jaime Lannister admires so much in her (and wants to be himself) that he comes to love her!
  10. Well, it's kinda hard to maintain story continuity when you don't have any of your story planned out in advance! Exactly this. They are not adapting, writing, or even telling a "story". They just decide they like an actor or whatever so they give them more nonsense to do on screen. Just imagine what these actors could have done with this source material, budget, locations, network, etc.
  11. Be Honest! How many of your own theories ever played out?

    Over five years before it was revealed in ADwD, I theorized that the Three-Eyed Crow was Brynden "Bloodraven" Rivers. *buffs nails on shirt* But that's about the only "major" theory I've had confirmed (although I have a few others that are still up in the air, of course). ETA: Oops! I forgot some more about Melisandre:
  12. Yeah, I like both book Sansa and book Arya. I'm very interested to see where Martin takes both of them. And, for the show runners, it's as if they think only violent men are strong. Thus, the only way for women to be strong is to be like men
  13. Interesting...but I'm confused. The actual article seems to directly contradict the title. In reading the article, it seems that people were not only looking for actual nudity and sex scenes from GoT in anticipation of the s6 premier but they were also searching for porn "inspired" by the show, etc. So...it seems people don't actually prefer GoT nudity to porn
  14. WOW! I like it! Thanks, that was...quite interesting
