re: PER Collider: Disney pulling the plug on star wars stand alone projects - Baloo
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...

re: ESPN is a mess - Baloo
[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...

re: PER Collider: Disney pulling the plug on star wars stand alone projects - Baloo
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...

re: PER Collider: Disney pulling the plug on star wars stand alone projects - Baloo
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...

re: ESPN is a mess - Baloo
[quote]No they wouldn't. It's so easy to get highlights through different sources these days.[/quote] People say this, but I don't think its true. First off, SportsCenter's ratings went up when they started playing more highlights. Secondly, a lot of the non-highlights shows get awful ratings. ...

re: Chris Hardwick #metooed in a big way. - Baloo
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...

re: NHL Offseason Thread - Baloo
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. [img]https://scontent-mxp1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/35493992_10212898634634631_...

re: Hoffman traded twice in one day, due to girlfriend cyberbullying - Baloo
[quote]Monika Caryk has uttered numerous statements wishing my unborn child dead.[/quote] The kicker here is that the Karlsson's child died. Their child was born stillborn after a difficult pregnancy, and it turns out the club KNEW about the harrassing tweets both before and after their child's d...

re: Barry Trotz steps down as Capitals coach - Baloo
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...

re: Bao (Short film showing prior to Incredibles 2) (Spoilers) - Baloo
What pissed you off about it? It was just a metaphor for a child leaving the nest, and accepting them for who they are and the choices they make. At the end of the short, the wife is at the table making dumplings. ...

re: Trey Quinn - surprise offseason standouts to know - Baloo
His 114 catches led the entire nation. Quinn turned into a productive player, albeit at a lower level (SMU). His teammate Courtland Sutton got all of the hype, but Quinn had more catches, yards, and scores. ...

re: Draymond thinks GS wins because the rest of the league is soft - Baloo
Draymond isn't a Hall of Famer, but he is the Warriors' designated tough guy and pest. He's really good at being obnoxious and I love him for it. He's like Danny Ainge with talent. ...

He said that in training camp. I love him looping back to it at the rally. He called his shot. Fans made it into a t-shirt right away: [link=(https://russianmachineneverbreaks.com/2017/09/15/heres-rmnbs-new-not-going-suck-year-shirt/)]RMNB t-shirts[/link] Of course, Ovi bought one. This is fro...

re: 11 greatest professional basketball players in recorded history according to me - Baloo
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...

re: James wan producing a remake of Arachnophobia - Baloo
I have enough faith in James Wan to at least be interested. And this is the kind of movie you should remake: a well-liked movie that wasn't a huge hit, but not so loved that it is a cult classic. ...

re: Hockey doesn't get enough respect on this board - Baloo
Yeah, I don't feel like as much of a mark as a hockey fan. So much of the NBA is this manufactured teenaged Real World drama. I just don't give a shite. There's all these BS feuds and stuff like we're watching pro wrestling. And while I'm down for guys who genuinely hate each other, so much of it fee...
