According to [link=(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ron_Swanson#Development)]Wikipedia[/link], the character was inspired by an acquaintance of one of the show's creators who was a staunch libertarian but worked for a local government. I don't think the character was demeaning to conservatives or lib...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: So Kiper and McShay both have Trubisky going #1 - NWHoustonTiger on 4/27/17 at 11:40 am
I suspect this is a bluff to see if a team in the top 10 that wants Trubisky (Jets?) is willing to pay a king's ransom for #1 overall. Paul Podesta is apparently pushing hard for the Browns to stockpile future draft picks and a trade for #1 overall would seemingly be in line with that strategy. Al...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
Who can lead the DC Film Universe? Obvious Solution.... - NWHoustonTiger on 2/21/17 at 6:21 pm

Who could Warner bring in? To me, there’s an answer right under their noses. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (8)
