#3336046 Hey did you know Kevin Hart was short?

The skit he did with Conan and Ice Cube was hilarious though.

#3335930 teeray's proposal to reduce police violence

Posted by Zaximus on Today, 10:50 AM

Great ideas, not sure why anyone wouldn't agree with most of them.  


If a 3rd party is reviewing the film, the police departments could also use that when it comes time to giving officers raises.  Some sort of point scale?   It would give LEOs a reason to stay on top of things and be rewarded correctly, keeping GOOD officers on the street and BAD ones off.  

#3328774 Benjamin admits that he got tired

Posted by Zaximus on 21 April 2015 - 01:53 PM

The drops were bad, and obviously unacceptable.


But to me, another area you have to pay attention to, is how many times KB was targeted.


The only WR's who were targeted as much or more than Benjamin in 2014:


Alshon Jeffery - 145 targets, 5 drops

Andre Johnson - 147 targets , 4 drops

Jordy Nelson - 151 targets, 4 drops

Julio Jones - 163 targets, 5 drops

Antonio Brown - 181 targets, 5 drops

Demaryius Thomas - 184 targets, 10 drops


Looking at the number of years those guys already have combined in the league (41 total), compared to a rookie KB, it's not nearly as bad as some are making it out to be.


I get that you are sour about the drops, but considering the circumstances, mainly him coming into our offense after we completely cleared out the entire wide receiver core (pretty huge fugging factor), and basically making him the centerpiece of our offense as a rookie. He put up 1,000 yards, and 10 touchdowns. No matter how you slice it, it's impressive. Certainly encouraging for the future.



Definitely, no I'm happy with the pick, he's going to be good.  Just trying to keep it real here with what he needs help with.  He was leaned on especially early, and I get that, and he was covered hard a lot of times because we have no other real threat.  He'll get better.    

#3327837 Is discussing white crime taboo?

You are a good guy but you absolutely lack real world experience. Your views are similar to the ones who gets all his experience from the Internet.

U.S. is like a safe heaven where everything is pretty, sweet and good. If you think it's not than you don't know the real world.



I think because of your real world experiences you are OK with how things are, and that's understandable considering, but some people know that it could and should be better, and that was the purpose of our country.   When you get complacent you end up with a bad education system like we have now, when we used to be the best, as an example.  


I'm sure most of us wouldn't trade living here for anywhere else, most of the time, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't want to improve.

This team needs a better backup center than Biyombo. And considering Al probably won't be starting here beyond next season, looking to the draft for the answer seems a smart choice. 



Biz is the least of our worries.  I believe if he could start he would drop 10 points/10 boards a game easily, and if we had actual people that could score/shoot around him (a real SG) he would be fine.   We need a scorer, one that can shoot, more than anything.  We haven't had one in so long if ever.

I think my question of PS 4 or Xbox one has just been answered.






J/k, not one of THOSE people.  Which are you choosing and why?

#3327376 Hornets offseason

Posted by Zaximus on 20 April 2015 - 09:25 AM

Oh we're stuck with Al, lol.  If he comes out and dominates (countract year so he probably will) I could see us moving him as an expiring to a team in playoff contention or something.


Hendo I bet stays, unless the market is dried up and he feels he could get something out there.   It would be best for us if he leaves.


I'm not sure Marvin can be moved, he's not worth his contract, not even close, unless we trade his expiring for a player that could help us.


Biz needs resigned, he's young and plays hard, he's earned it, he's earned a spot on this team more than a lot of the other guys.


We're stuck with Lance, like Al, unless he comes out and balls.  He may, since it's a contract year.


We're going to have mostly the same team with a couple new, cheap faces, imo.   We've dug ourselfs a hole, so we're stuck for a bit.

#3327308 recent study shows that partisan politics has overtaken race as society's...

Posted by Zaximus on 20 April 2015 - 08:48 AM

In reality, the wage gap between rich and everyone else SHOULD be the biggest divide, then maybe everyone would be aware of it.


Unfortunately we're too busy arguing over stupid things and doing EXACTLY what the party system currently wants us to do.

I like the fact my Cubs may still be relevant a couple months into the season.

#3326062 Leaked Batman v Superman Trailer

Posted by Zaximus on 18 April 2015 - 03:23 PM

fug the Joker. We need the Court of Owls.


I don't like how DC is just forgetting their TV universe. Diggle is fuging awesome.



DC is making a huge mistake by not paying attention and using the same actors from the shows.  There is something really cool and exciting how Marvel's stuff all fits together.


I have LOVED this first season of Flash, and now we're going to see a different movie version between seasons?  Feels really cheesy to me.

If you seriously think Chic-Fila's record day WASN'T because of gay hate than you are just delusional and refuse to accept the truth.  

#3323488 Early reviews for Netflix's "Daredevil"...

Posted by Zaximus on 16 April 2015 - 01:13 PM

I hope we get Season 2 next year but they may wait for the other shows to be done first.


Netflix should push for Ghost Rider, Punisher, Moon Knight, etc to be made into shows as well.    Have a new comic show every 2 months or so, would be good for the service.

#3323395 Ricky Proehl... WR coaching genius or overrated?

Posted by Zaximus on 16 April 2015 - 11:55 AM

Overated at this point.  We've had such terrible receivers over the years and have really never developed one in like 20 years (Smith and Moose really only ones of note) that when we have some decent guys everyone thinks it's amazing, but should be what is expected of most normal teams.

The only person I've seen really endorse the position is a Republican presidential candidate...


He doesn't care, it was just an opportunity to jump and tell everyone how he makes more money than them and is obviously better at everything because of that fact, as if he knows everyone here personally.   Typical MH response.  

#3322206 Cops use rims as bait.

Posted by Zaximus on 15 April 2015 - 08:10 AM

Cops perform task that get criminals off the streets.

Public responds by saying "it's a waste of money to perform task that gets criminals off the streets".

Public bitches if their belongings are stolen.

Yep, sounds about right.



There is an arguement of, are you really getting criminals off the street when you created the event that pushed said individual(s) to BECOME criminals in the first place?   


When you could have been patrolling neighborhoods to stop criminals that were already criminals instead of creating MORE criminals on the street?   


If said "created criminals" didn't have felonies already and they pick up felonies now, you have potentially now created life-long criminals that have to resort to even worse things because of a felony being on their record and being desperate.  What if said "created criminals" had a kid or two that now are in a broken home and/or hungry because parent cannot get a job because of felony?   That kid will fall into the same cycle.


Life isn't as simple as "they are obviously criminals".   This is how you continuously create a cycle of criminals, in fact.  This is counter productive to actually patrolling and catching REAL criminals that were going to always be such.
