re: Game of Thrones is Becoming Too Predicable [SPOILERS] - CrippleCreek on 7/17/17 at 2:45 pm
The set-pieces are huge, yes, but I see a difference between the set-pieces and the story. Hardhome is the culmination of the human story of Jon/Nights Watch/Freefolk. If the ultimate antagonist is the night king, he isn't really a character as much as an avatar. That's not good....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Game of Thrones is Becoming Too Predicable [SPOILERS] - CrippleCreek on 7/17/17 at 2:40 pm
I think that's a huge problem for both the TV and book sagas. Huge numbers of people were drawn in to the fantasy saga for people who don't really like the magical/fantasy elements. As the story has unraveled and magic has become more and more prevalent and is now looking like the ultimate end-ga...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (5)
re: Game of Thrones is Becoming Too Predicable [SPOILERS] - CrippleCreek on 7/17/17 at 2:28 pm
I think seasons 4/5 suffer a lot from how poorly paced and generally lethargic the source material is. I thought 6 improved things a lot, and last night was strong. I found the last two books an absolute chore to read....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Biggest statement games in SEC since 2000 - CrippleCreek on 7/12/17 at 6:31 pm
[quote]Alabama beating LSU in National Championship game shaped the direction of two equal programs[/quote] This game was obviously massive, but I would argue that 2012 in TS was a bigger deal. LSU wins that game, and the seesaw that was the series before that game continues to be so. Losing ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: BYU ticket notification emails going out tomorrow, per ticket office. All requests filled. - CrippleCreek on 7/11/17 at 1:13 pm
It'll be 2/3 full at best even after the 5/25 deals they run on Groupon the week of the game. I'd say it's the worst scheduled non-TS game I'd ever seen on an LSU schedule, but we have Rice in Houston coming up too....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: If I was a HS Senior in Louisiana and wanted to play football out of state - CrippleCreek on 7/6/17 at 1:33 am
Leaving Louisiana is the most rational choice for most kids lsu is recruiting, but for football. But football exists. So they should absolutely stay home....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Florida wins the CWS. Thank you seniors!!!! - CrippleCreek on 6/27/17 at 10:31 pm
What was the fricking plan if we had gotten the runs in the 7/8? Surely he didn't honestly think he was gonna have Hess get them all the way home? Great season all around, but it really bothers me that they hung Hess out to dry like that to end it....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Top 5 possible basketball hires - CrippleCreek on 3/9/17 at 7:59 am
[quote]money was never the problem[/quote] That may be, but if Alleva spends at or near the top of the market after taking a trip to the Dollar General to find the football coach there will, and should be, blowback. The market for the lsu basketball coach will not be set by the CBB market, but...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Fournette's playing weight in the NFL - CrippleCreek on 3/5/17 at 3:51 pm
It's hard to completely isolate the impact weight had on him last season because of the ankle issues, but anyone who legitimately thinks he was as dynamic in 16 as 15 when he was on the field just doesn't remember how good he was in 15. His start/stop and change of direction were on an entirely d...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Alabama negative recruiting: Baton Rouge Crime - CrippleCreek on 1/2/17 at 3:41 pm
At the moment Alabama has the best coach in CFB history who is in the midst of one of the greatest runs in the sport's history, and LSU has a coach with no track record of success in producing consistently successful teams or preparing players for successful NFL careers. Alabama also has superior...

re: Should Donald Jr. and Eric really be a part of the transition team? - CrippleCreek on 12/14/16 at 5:05 pm
It isn't a nepotism issue. To the extent Eric and Jr. running the companies are part of Trump's plan for his businesses and avoiding the potential for conflicts of interest, they shouldn't be involved in the transition. If for no other reason than that avoiding even the appearance of impropriety ...

re: ***Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Official Discussion*** Spoilers - CrippleCreek on 11/27/16 at 9:15 pm
I was really enjoying this movie, and the fact that it was mostly light on using callbacks and references to the other stories as a crutch. It was a cool use of the world to tell an original story. Then Depp turned up, brought in grendelwald, tethered the whole thing to the main saga, opened ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

You don't have to make it a "condition" The potential staff and who a candidate would like to keep for continuity are obviously points to be discussed in the interview process. Eliminate anyone who doesn't say they intend to keep Aranda as a high priority from contention for the job....

re: Buckeyes fans: you are not getting screwed when you don't make the playoff - CrippleCreek on 11/13/16 at 2:40 am
The playoff is owned and run by these conferences and it exists in direct response to LSU-bama. Champs are in, non-champs are out IMO. That is just conjecture until tested. I'm rooting hard for PSU/Wisconsin and OSU to win out. It will be stupid no matter the result, but the committee has gott...
