  1. MMA & Boxing 19: Cody Garbrandt's Dance Party

    Have to agree. I thought before he went into this game, he really has to win this because he has been losing fights left and right. Lewis had been making it personal as well. But another loss, he just seems easily rocked. From the other fights, I liked the Paul Felder and Gavin Tucker wins the best.
  2. NBA 2017: The Kings of Comedy

    From the ESPN article: So yes, it's all about the culture around guys like Cousins and Barnes, toxic figures with downright terrible personalities that happen to be very large humans that can play the game. It just shows that as Divac admits, it may not be a great trade, but they just wanted to be rid of Cousins.
  3. NBA 2017: The Kings of Comedy

    From the Kings perspective, it's a terrible, terrible deal. They absolutely shouldn't have traded him. It's just that no one cares about the Kings and I am just happy he's finally gone to a team with at least some playoffs prospects. Though of course New Orleans has a lot still to do as well, seriously lacking in guards/small forwards. But that Davis/Cousins combo is fierce, especially given their versatility. But from a Kings perspective, he's your best player by a huge margin, and if you trade him, you're not going to get a new star traded to you for years, because nobody wants to be there. I would be interested in hearing a rationale for why they traded him. They just got a lot worse, what they got back for him was not great, so short term and mid term it's not a good deal for them if the objective is to be a competitive team. If the objective was just to rid the team of Cousins, then the trade was a success.
  4. NBA 2017: The Kings of Comedy

    Rising Stars and the 3 point contest day 2 stuff were crap, I agree.
  5. NBA 2017: The Kings of Comedy

    Will see the full game when I get back from work, but just googled this and it's quite touching.
  6. NBA 2017: The Kings of Comedy

    Wow. That is massive news. Cousins to the Pelicans for a bag of chips ( Buddie Hield, Galloway, Tyreke Evans who never ever plays and two picks). I was just reading an interview with Cousins two days ago which is now really hilarious. He's talking about how happy he is with the Kings this year and how problems have been sorted, and how he even intends to finish his career in Sacramento. And now, he's gone. Poof!
  7. Football: fixture congestion

    Oh I woudln't be that negative. The team's become harder and harder to beat, and Chelsea is going to diminish and slow down a bit at some point as well. It should probably be the FA cup final based on what's still in, the two best teams, but now we'll get it earlier.
  8. Trailer Thread III

    Pros: Fassbender& Gosling Cons: Malick, so probably vague and weird, plus the topic doesn't really interest me.
  9. Neil Gaiman working on NEVERWHERE II (finally!)

    This is a change from the interview a few months ago in which he said he would finally be writing his American Gods sequel, especially in light of the AG series having started. I was certainly more interested in that.
  10. Reccomend recent debut spec fic. authors

    I've just bought 3 copies.
  11. Football: fixture congestion

    Spurs are giving an excellent account of themselves in Europe, it must be said. Early exit Champions League, and now losing to mighty AA Gent. As for the CL, fantastic stuff from Bayern, and the Madrid vs Napoli game was very good as well. Arsenal however were very, very weak. Hopefully this will have some mental impact on them as well.
  12. Taboo: Tom Hardy's historical drama (BBC1/FX) [spoilers]

    Same here. Have decided to stop trying after two/three episodes.
  13. SS-GB (new alt-history BBC drama)

    Will check that out this weekend, looks interesting. But then again so did Taboo, and I've quit on that due to it being boring.
  14. Football: fixture congestion

    The league really needs Chelsea to drop a game, or draw two or three more, for this to be interesting again. Maybe it is not as impossible as it seems and they are perhaps entering a bit of a rut? United's been nicely on the rise of late. It would be good for the league if the top 6 is fighting for the title rather than second place.
  15. Unbreakable Sequel Next Up For Shyamalan

    The two films are nothing alike though, as far as I'm concerned. The tie-in at the end feels gratuitous to me, but if the success of Split leads to an Unbreakable sequel, ok.
