  1. They should replace Seattle AND Vancouver. The Grizzlies had fan support but had the worst management team in NBA history. They made today's knicks look like Auerbach's Celtics. Also the taxes for players in Toronto are not particularly high in comparison to all states that aren't Florida and i believe Texas. They are actually lower than most.
  2. He could have. He also could have sided with his brothers and foiled her plans. What if the two H brothers had sided with Aslaug? She could have potentially even got Bjorn killed. From a strategic perspective doing it as she did makes perfect sense, All the warriors were gone, the only two others that would stop her she had imprisoned, it was the perfect time for a coup. And what does it matter if it was ten years? Read some history, people have stewed over revenge and made coups after a longer time than that. Hell it even happens in ASOIAF. It wasn't just "Bjorn's Men" there. As said above the H brothers aren't Bjorn's men. They raid to raid, What if Aslaug had promised to marry the one who wanted to be King if they killed Bjorn and Lagertha?
  3. Why did she choose that particular time? I thought it obvious. Bjorn just led all the best warrior folk out of Kattegat on a raid. Ragnar took the shitty warrior folk for his. Kattegat is basically empty of warriors who could fight her coup. it's really not that hard to figure out.
  4. Rogue One....Brings a New Hope. Full Spoiler Discussion

    Apparently the board ate my first attempt at a reply. Here's the jist. You can "track" hyperspace movement by plotting out where they can potentially go as in Star Wars you cannot go from anywhere to anywhere (Until TFA). It's shown many times in books, video games and such. (This includes the newer Canon ones). So you could manually track them that way by following but it puts them really behind the 8 ball. Or you could use the instantaneous galaxy wide video call system that the Empire has that is much, much faster than Hyperspace and call ahead to the potential jump routes from scarif and say hey, there's a corvette potentially coming in, detain it immediately also should it come in immediately radio the Devastator. As ships cannot immediately jump to light speed om star wars (until TFA) for risk of hitting a star or asteroids. The Devastator can then plot ahead from whatever system the Tantive goes to and set up traps and so on and so on. So to answer your question: The battle scene at the start of a New Hope is likely the result of an ongoing chase that probably covers a high number of systems before they finally damaged the Tantive enough so it couldn't hyperspace away then the Devastator gets there. Very similar to the Battlestar Galactica episode "33 minutes" actually. The real question you should be asking is why didn't the Tantive IV jump straight to Yavin 4 given from Rogue One the jump time is almost instantaneous per Star Wars standards. The answer to that is the same reason why hyperspace is a fun jaunt in TFA: Disney Idiocy (Or Abrams idiocy if you like).

    So we are to ignore that you literally said untraceable in your previous post, which would then mean a tracking device is irrelevant because said object is untraceable?
  6. Rogue One....Brings a New Hope. Full Spoiler Discussion

    Well that's certainly not true. The Empire tracks the falcon from Alderaan to Yavin 4 in the very first movie. What you thought they flew there normally? lol

    I could do the same for TFA : "I love Episode 4: A New Hope". See?
  8. Star Wars: Episode VIII predictions

    Second from last? They go to Jabba's obviously. Artoo and him go to Degobah after, then reunite with the others on the Alliance flagship. Then of course the long "fly casual" shuttle ride, then going through forest adventures until Luke ditches them as always until meeting yet again at the great party celebrating the Forest Moon and all its inhabitants's impending death.

    The entire thematic point of Luke not turning in comparison to Anakin was because of his friends and so not being a "Jedi" like that.
  10. Star Wars: Episode VIII predictions

    If they recast her that's not going to happen. They will change it so that she gets killed by Ren or something and then have Luke confront him like she would have. A new actor as Leia just isn't going to work for anything more than a brief scene like Tarkin in Revenge of the Sith. They are either going to CGI her or kill her off almost immediately.
  11. Star Wars Rebels (All Star Wars Spoilers)

    Maul had 2 lines i think: "At last we will reveal ourselves to the Jedi. At last we will have revenge."
  12. Star Wars: Episode VIII predictions

    The other big one which was apparently set for 9 was Leia and Luke reuniting. Episode 8 sounds like a barn burner.
  13. Star Wars Rebels (All Star Wars Spoilers)

    Nah Palpatine didn't die from the fall, he died from the Death Star blowing up. Mace Windu on the other hand is confirmed to still be alive. He's probably Snoke.

    Would it make it better for you if there was a small shaft at the bottom of the pit he can gently land then slide in then fall through another trap door onto a tv antenna?
