Obviously this show has a tremendous reputation, and I often hear people say it's the greatest show ever. My question, directed towards those who watched the show as it aired, is when did people start to consider it one of the all time greats? After season 4? After Ozymandias? After it was over? ...

Why do some people value ideology over competency? When voting on the leader of the country, shouldn't this be the other way around? I see so many people complaining about Kasich because he occasionally breaks party line when he feels it's best for his people. I'm fairly certain some of those same p...

I know the consensus among those who have watched the show and read the books is that the book series is better. I'm one of the few who does not feel that way. That being said, I genuinely believe there are certain things the show does better. I wanted to discuss some things and see which changes pe...

Why do people here act like it's some major accomplishment to make it into the NCAA tournament? Shouldn't that be the damn baseline? Tennessee fans aren't asking for a lot. We don't expect to win as much as Kentucky or Florida with Donovan. But since the field expanded to 32, Tennessee has made t...

Many consider Diego Maradona to be the best player of all time, in large part thanks to his performance in the 1986 World Cup. However, what happens if Maradona is caught trying to score with his hand against England in the Quarterfinals and sent off (again, this is a hypothetical). He finishes t...View Topic - Replies (6)

The other team features a top two player in the World. This is the only group where all four teams made it to ...View Topic - Replies (1)
