Professional "wrestling" is just sad, I have a hard time respecting anyone over the age of 12 that watches that crap.
You do realize that there is a very good chance that the NFL is basically just like WWE, right? Minus admitting it out of character. Basically scripted, then played out by athletes, or at least dictated by outside factors. Both are legally entertainment companies, which means it is legal for them to fix/change outcomes out games/matches.
And wrestling has no fears about MMA. MMA boomed a few years ago and hasn't really affected WWE at all. In fact, MMA athletes end up trying to get into the WWE because they'll make more money and can do it longer. However, WWE wrestlers get hurt way more than MMA fighters, which is not what you'd expect. There is a long history of MMA fighters starting in WWE or coming to it. Brock, Ken Shamrock, etc. WWE's stock is at record high right now after the WWE network and reports are that the sub numbers are going to be north of their own expectations. Wrestling will always be around, in some form. ESPN is in talks to start broadcasting WWE tv shows too.
If these guys weren't athletes, they couldn't wrestle 4-5 matches a week. Yes, they wrestle more than what is on TV, in house shows around the country. I recently read an article about WWE tryouts in Florida, where a bunch of ex-powerlifters, pro and college football players, and MMA background guys were having a very hard time and couldn't keep up. They said it was the most grueling and physical intensive thing they have ever done. The football players said they would rather do two-a-days in college/pro over a few hours of training for pro wrestling. Then, they also have to be good on the mic too. And if NASCAR and Golf are a sport, so is pro-wrestling.
In the end, it's no difference than a TV show or movie, and MOST likely, not very different than most pro sports we watch here in America. I also promise you wouldn't say it's fake to a pro wrestler in real life to their face. These guys take real punishment.
I bet she isn't dead. I bet what she found down there was Abigail, still alive, and now she might be a prisoner too. It's not like Hannibal to leave stuff sitting out, and she acted shocked, so that could be a big shock, seeing that girl. Maybe not though....
Who cares about a campaign in multiplayer games? I wish they didn't even put their "co-op campaign" in this one. When I heard this game was multiplayer only I respected that. I'd rather them spend 100% of their time and money making the multiplayer, which is the real meat of the game, instead of spend 50% of their time and money making a 4 hour campaign like Call of Duty or Battlefield.
I think Titanfall has lasting power. The game plays really well, and is also very balanced, especially compared to CoD and BF games.
Dude, that is now the same as a paycut. Restructures usually doesn't mean a player takes less, it's just moved around. The guy flat out doesn't earn what he's paid. I don't blame him for not taking a paycut but don't think it's the same thing.
I don't think this is racist. Calling this racist is what keeps racism alive. He likes to put in running QBs in his offense. I know some white QBs can run well, but let's be honest, black people tend to have more lower leg strength and tend to run better, generally. Just look at major sports. There will be a few exceptions, but it is not coincidence that most running backs are black and the best ones, usually are also black. Same with wide receivers and cornerbacks and other positions where running is huge. I'm a white guy and I'm not silly enough to not realize that black people are, on average, going to be better runners. There is also the theory that black people have higher twitch muscles leading to higher athleticism. On the flip side, I've heard a lot of times white people are (generally) more suited for straight up strength instead of speed, like lineman, etc. As always, there will be exceptions. But watch the olympics, aren't most runners black and most swimmers white? I only believe in coincidence to a point. This is just genetics. It's not racism, this is just who we are, and we should be proud that some of us are different, but in the end, we're all human. I'm not going to knock someone for pointing out what he thinks is a fact based on evidence he's seen over the years. If he was to come out and compare intelligence and personality traits, that would be racist though.
I don't understand what people expected out of him. When we drafted him, I don't remember anyone being excited for 15ppg+ or anyone that even had that notion. Now all of a sudden people expect that? He was NEVER drafted to be a scorer, the hope/ceiling was that he could get around 10ppg with putbacks and dunks. He's not going to do a 15 foot fadeaway jumper. He's not Chris Bosh. He's a in your face defender that doesn't back down and plays hard. He wouldn't even be out of normal college by now. I promise you there would be a ton of teams offering him a contract right now, and I'm talking about contenders. He's the type of guy you want on your team in the playoffs.
