| Movie/TV Board|| Who's Your Pick to Direct the Movie About Malaysia Airlines Flight 370? - Patrick_Bateman on 3/11/14 at 8:33 pm|
After what he did with the 9/11 and Maersk Alabama highjackings, I may go with Paul Greengrass. If in fact the plane is never found (suggesting some sort of magical/supernatural event), probably Christopher Nolan (although, to my knowledge, he's never delved into based on a true story-telling).
| O-T Lounge|| Burnt Rubber Smell in Home: Is It Toxic? - Patrick_Bateman on 3/11/14 at 1:40 am|
Long story short, I'm home alone (rented duplex) and was just awakened by the smell of electrical burn/burnt rubber/burnt plastic. It took me a few minutes to realize there wasn't a fire. I eventually found the source of the smell - an overheated box fan. The motor seems to have overheated and the f...

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| O-Line Appreciation Thread - Patrick_Bateman on 1/4/14 at 10:48 pm|
Great performance tonight. O-line and RBs worked hard and made the most of every running play. Every yard matters in big games, and they earned the victory tonight! Hat's off to the O-line....
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Woodhead or Dennis Johnson? - Patrick_Bateman on 12/22/13 at 9:13 am|
PPR league. Johnson's in my lineup for now, but Woodhead has been faithful all season and has a juicy matchup today vs. Oakland....

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Someone Dropped Aaron Rodgers. I Picked Him Up. - Patrick_Bateman on 12/1/13 at 3:02 pm|
It's not really clear to me why someone in our league who will not be making the playoffs would drop Aaron Rodgers. He dropped him last week, after Rodgers had been out a few weeks with injury. He was on waivers for a full day (also does not compute) before I picked him up.
Would it be wrong for ...
| Movie/TV Board|| Theaters in Shreveport/Bossier Not Playing 12 Years a Slave - Patrick_Bateman on 11/1/13 at 2:45 pm|
Tinseltown and Boardwalk theaters in Shreveport and Bossier both say they will not be showing 12 Years a Slave. At all. When asked why (over the phone), both said something to the effect of, "It's an art film. . . It will only be playing in places like Dallas, Baton Rouge, and New Orleans."

One team has a WR to spare, the other team has Graham and Gronk. Why would people be vetoing this trade? Seems fair to me....

96 on Metacritic. Limited release tomorrow, wide release November 1 (I think). Can't wait to see it! Been waiting a long time for this one!
| Fantasy Sports Board|| 14-Team PPR, Pick 2: Woodhead, Blackmon, Antonio Brown - Patrick_Bateman on 10/13/13 at 11:08 am|

| Fantasy Sports Board|| PPR - R. Bush + Woodhead for AP - Patrick_Bateman on 10/7/13 at 7:15 pm|
His team: AP, David Wilson, Johnathan Franklin, Chris Ivory
My team: Jamaal Charles, Reggie Bush, Danny Woodhead, Lamar Miller
Is Reggie + Woodhead too much to give up for AP? Bear in mind it's PPR, so Woodhead is the 11th ranked RB through 5 weeks. And we all know the season Reg...

| Tiger Rant|| Check In If You Think this Game Will NOT Be a Shootout - Patrick_Bateman on 9/24/13 at 8:58 am|
I think our defense will prove all the doubters wrong this weekend. We'll run up the score early, and our D will keep Murray and Gurley in check. A late Georgia TD inflates their score and makes the game appear closer, but we win going away. 38-27.
If you agree that our defense will silence all t...

Give: Demaryius Thomas + Lamar Miller; receive: Doug Martin. Without naming each team's entire roster, I'll just say that he needs a WR and I need an upgrade at RB. Is that a pretty fair trade?
League is PPR. Otherwise, standard scoring....
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Who Gets Points on a Hook and Ladder? - Patrick_Bateman on 9/8/13 at 6:51 pm|

| Fantasy Sports Board|| Lamar Miller - Patrick_Bateman on 9/8/13 at 1:27 pm|
Anyone watching the Miami game? I am not. Is Miller as bad as his first-half stats: 7 carries for 3 yards? Or is Miami's O-line just that bad?
I had really high hopes for Miller. . ....

Please help! I've never done an auction draft before, and my league drafts tomorrow.

What players should I ...

With all the race discussions on TV today, it occurred to me (while watching The Prestige) that Chris Nolan doesn't really cast blacks in leading roles.
