re: PER Collider: Disney pulling the plug on star wars stand alone projects - Baloo on 6/20/18 at 3:23 pm
Star Wars is the single most popular piece of pop culture in history. Anyone with a passing interest in pop culture cares a least a little bit. The huge empire is not built on a small cabal of hard core fans, it's built on a massive population of casual fans from all parts of the earth. Star War...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: ESPN is a mess - Baloo on 6/20/18 at 3:16 pm
[quote]actually agree 100 percent. I’m sick of the starfrickers. ESPN cares more about Johnny Doichebag in the CFL than they do about the World Cup. I don’t care AT ALL what some athlete tweeted. Their CWS coverage yesterday was a tribute to the Clemens family. Their top news story a week ago on the...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

I don't doubt that you boycotted the film. But you are in a small minority. The vast majority of the world is not a bunch of whiny man-babies. The vast majority of people simply do not care one way or another about the SJW v FanBoy battle royale. It's not even remotely interesting. I hate to bre...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (5)
re: PER Collider: Disney pulling the plug on star wars stand alone projects - Baloo on 6/20/18 at 2:19 pm
SOLO was a huge mistake, as were films about Boba Fett or Ob Wan. ROGUE ONE did well because it was a new story. SOLO failed because it was the same old shit, and there's no new story to tell. I'm glad they're stopping the standalones because they didn't, as Freaux pointed out, do anything cool with...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

re: Chris Hardwick #metooed in a big way. - Baloo on 6/20/18 at 12:07 pm
As a general rule, I just don't give a shite about famous people's private lives. I'll make an exception clearly for things like Kevin Spacey or Roman Polanski, but by and large, I don't care. So... let's just do a quick thought experiment and take everything she says at face value. I do think Ha...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: NHL Offseason Thread - Baloo on 6/20/18 at 11:32 am
I love Tarasenko, but one of the advanced metric sites ran a comp showing Kuzy compares favorable to Connor McDavid. I wouldn't go that far, but Kuzy is ridiculously awesome, and people are just starting to realize it.

re: Barry Trotz steps down as Capitals coach - Baloo on 6/18/18 at 3:16 pm
He has a special needs son. Chances are high he takes a TV gig with a lot less travel so he can be home more. The Caps wanted to promote Reirden for a while now, even going as far as not letting him interview for head coaching jobs last year while letting Trotz dangle on the last year of his con...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Trey Quinn - surprise offseason standouts to know - Baloo on 6/18/18 at 10:40 am

re: 11 greatest professional basketball players in recorded history according to me - Baloo on 6/11/18 at 4:29 pm
When Dr. J retired in 1987, he was widely considered the greatest player ever. Just 30 years later, he gets left off the majority of top 10 lists. This is almost entirely due to a poorly maintained statistical record in his time in the ABA. But the modern NBA is built almost entirely in his image. H...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
