Movies which have defined the action genre? - RollTide1987 on 5/23/15 at 2:46 pm
I personally think there are only a handful of films that have come along in the course of the 50+ year history of this genre that have really defined what an action movie is. Here is my list: Goldfinger (1964) - The first true blockbuster action film. It basically legitimized and popularized t...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (11)

This is an obvious troll job but I am going to respond to it just in case some ignorant a-hole stumbles upon it and believes it. [quote]World War 2's victory didn't keep us free, because Hitler wanted only to be Master of Europe. [/quote] This is very true. But in a world where the global e...

2002 Iron Bowl Highlights - RollTide1987 on 5/22/15 at 4:00 pm
Probably the biggest upset in recent memory in this series. Auburn came into the game unranked, with a 7-4 record and down many of their offensive stars (including future NFL stars Cadillac Williams and Ronnie Brown). Alabama came into the game ranked #9 in the country and sporting the #1 ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (14)

Saban has had only one WTF? moment I can think of in recent years and that was the final drive against Ohio State in the semi-final. We had over a minute left with a time out or two and we were being very conservative with the football. It's like we were giving the game to OSU at that point....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
Washington Post: Roger Goodell has undermined his credibility with Deflategate - RollTide1987 on 5/22/15 at 12:05 pm
[quote]League history makes it obvious that Goodell is practicing selective enforcement, purely for his own purpose. The NFL rules simply state that footballs should be inflated within a range of 12.5 to 13.5 pounds per square inch. For nearly a decade it has let each team provide a dozen of its own...

The suits thought the public would grow tired of Leno and that his ratings would decline.
