  1. I tend to the cynical side so I'm thinking Hamill changed his tune due to the higher ups coming down on him. Plus the script leak really points to his earlier comments. Howdyphillip, I've watched TFA 4 times and it IS a copy of Episode 4 beat by beat unfortunately it misses the themes of what ties together the original trilogy and the prequels and is just a shallow bowl of popcorn. Entertaining in its way I suppose and occasionally maybe something you want but not something actually good. If you love popcorn, by all means continue thinking its the greatest thing since slice bread. I'm glad you can enjoy it.
  2. I suppose I'd be more excited if the script hadn't leaked, Mark Hamill hadn't come out and said the character of Luke has been essentially destroyed, or basically if I thought they would even try to make a thematic resonance between this one and 2 and 5 instead of a straight copy (Abrams certainly failed at that in 7)
  3. Jimmy D is running things again. I'm sure they'd accept Ryan Anderson and a box of matches. It's hilarious that despite how terrible Phil Jackson was he was still probably a step up from previous regimes.
  4. Kind of fascinating in a morbid way. Darabont was clearly acting like an ass, yet he was treated like complete shit and from his view wasn't paid properly. More amusing is all the stuff that has come out about how AMC has been lying to the press about this since he was fired.
  5. Relic... It's funny. Despite that list I'd be much more in favour of being a Nets fan than a Knicks fan right now. The Nets clearly are trying to turn it around after probably the worst trade in NBA history and are seemingly being pseudo-effective at it. Maybe it's just because they seem to have a competent GM and an Owner that is actually hands off? I'd almost guarantee the Nets are going to be good again before the Knicks barring something miraculously lucky on the Knicks end. (Jimmy D selling)
  6. I almost liked the Vulture. They tried to do something different for him which I appreciated given that it's a marvel movie. Sadly the "wrong gun" scene just kind of ruined what they were trying to do with the character but close. The movie was certainly miles better than the standard marvel formula movie so good job there I guess. It was quite funny, they did the high school stuff mostly well. Iron Man mostly showed up appropriately (not the end sadly) so it mostly made sense from a logic perspective. Honestly the thing I enjoyed the most was that the central theme of the movie was just a retooled version of the 60's Spiderman theme song. Made me smile every time.

  8. Sperry, The Franchise tag is that the player is guaranteed the average of the top 3 players at his position league wide under a 1 year contract. Each team can franchise 1 and only one player per year but cannot franchise a specific player more than twice. It's also pretty much an enslavement policy as those players who are franchised almost always leave immediately afterwards. (This is beside the point that franchised players can and do sign elsewhere regardless and it turns into a draft pick for the former team. Essentially a sign and trade in NBA terms)
  9. Well LeBron won't cause he wants to be a billionaire and bless him for it. That is certainly the way it could be going though and the Union if not the League will put a stop to it. Sperry I'm not sure why you think the NFL has some sort of checks and balances on stars leaving teams in free agency. It doesn't.. Stars don't leave teams primarily because its hard to change systems in the NFL particularly for QB's. It isn't like the NBA where every team runs essentially the same playbook.
  10. Manhole, I still can't quote. Fucking website. Anyways there are no rules against taking less money than what you are worth but it will be a problem for the union in CBA talks because the owners can point to that and say the players don't deserve as much money bla bla. It's basically one thing for old soon to be retired players to take a pay cut to chase a ring, it's quite another when the second best player in the league does it so that his team can have a competitive advantage.
  11. Thinking more about Durant taking less money.... the next deal he has will almost be certainly a max deal. He can't fuck over the union twice in a row right?
  12. No, I don't. Curry didn't take less money and they have even less reason to. They aren't getting the shoe deals Curry and Durant are. They will get paid max money somewhere else.
  13. Does Durants new deal end when Klays and Draymonds are up? If so, I'd say the Warriors Dynasty now has an end date.
  14. I don't understand how this Chris Paul thing isn't tampering. Apparently he told every team he is going to the Rockets. That in itself is tampering before the July 1st deadline but obviously Houston was talking to him prior which again... tampering.
  15. Congrats Relic the Knicks are finally free of Phil. Too bad they can't get rid of Jimmy D the same way. Latest rumor around here is he's going to throw lots and lots of money at Ujiri, If so that would actually be a smart move. Hence why I don't think it's happening but you can dream!
