re: Best movie to watch IN THEATERS? - GumBro Jackson on 5/25/15 at 5:02 pm
Lawrence of Arabia was shown at a theater several years ago and it was the most majestic movie I have ever seen at the theater. The Dark Knight is probably the best "new release" I have seen in theater in the last decade....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

It would be terrifying to change anything in history. Any significant change would very likely mean that you and everyone you know would no longer exist....

re: New Orleans invited to bid for 2019 and 2020 Super Bowls - GumBro Jackson on 5/24/15 at 3:45 pm
The Superdome is a great place to watch a game, and the access to hotels, bars, and restaurants makes it the most fun location of any NFL venue I have been to (I've been to about six). Clearly the NFL "rewards" teams with new stadiums. I think that NOLA will always be on the shortlist of places,...

re: Uni Watch Power Rankings: Saints No. 18 - GumBro Jackson on 5/24/15 at 9:36 am
The collar is f*cking horrible and it bothers me every single game. Will this be the fourth year with that sh*t? Every offseason I hope they change it. Maybe next year. Personally, I don't like the all black uniforms, but I know some people really like them, so I guess they are okay as long as...

NFL's Most Likeable Players - GumBro Jackson on 5/23/15 at 10:19 am
ESPN just did a segment where they ranked the NFL's most likeable players according to a survey done by a market research company. The company used DBI which measures several things like appeal and influence. They surveyed 1.5 million people, so it isn't like 100 people voting on the internet. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (12)
re: Bryce Harper got tossed for being out of the batter's box - GumBro Jackson on 5/21/15 at 8:43 am
I would also like to see an unedited clip. To me it looks like Bryce complains a little after a bad call, but is in the box ready to go. Someone in the dugout (prob Williams) starts arguing and the ump engages him. Ump tells Bryce to be in the box (even though ump's mask is off and he is arguing ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Alabama and Auburn fans: which NFL team do you root for? - GumBro Jackson on 5/20/15 at 10:49 am
Saints are my NFL team. I'm currently on my second stint in New Orleans. I also just enjoy watching NFL in general and root for former Auburn players. Like a few others, I am surprised by that map showing the state of Alabama as Saints country. I have lived in a few different cities in Alaba...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: MLS Franchises in the South - GumBro Jackson on 5/19/15 at 10:52 am
Does Birmingham have a high level soccer team now? If so and they support it then would think that the city might actually have a shot at an MLS team. On the other hand, Charlotte, Raleigh, and Nashville are all higher profile Southeastern cities. Maybe if MLS wanted a market where they were ...

re: More Miserable Sport City: Atlanta or Cleveland? - GumBro Jackson on 5/18/15 at 10:32 pm
Cleveland is worse, although I disagree that its "not close". The Braves World Series 20 years ago gives Atlanta an edge, but you have to admit it has been pretty miserable for Atlanta as well. The world series was great, but all of those pennants and only one championship was pretty tough. Oth...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

re: 9 game conference schedule: Yay or Nay? - GumBro Jackson on 5/14/15 at 5:58 pm
I'm in favor of a 9 game conference schedule and keeping perm rivals. That would double the # of times we play each non-perm team from the other division. I would also be in favor of the "roommate switch" scenario....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Changes coming to conference title games in 2016 - GumBro Jackson on 5/11/15 at 9:31 am
I like the idea of either doing away with divisions and having three perm opponents then rotating the other five games, or of doing the "roommate switch". Either of those options would be great and IMO big improvements over the current set-up. Teams could keep their biggest games and we would ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

I would be really upset to not play Bama and UGA every year, but I do think it sucks to only play some teams like once every six years. I think we should go to a nine game conference schedule. If we don't do that, I like that roommate switch set-up. I'd also be fine w/ some kind of three perm riv...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

It obviously makes the path easier to the Hawks, but they still have to go out there and play the games, and they are dealing with their own issues. Teams can still win even w/o big contributors. Cavs don't have Love and they just roasted the Bulls. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
