In Topic: Seahawks GM hints he'll just let Wilson walk if he doesn't lower his...

17 April 2015 - 06:11 AM

Breaking up the band already?  Wilson is good.  His touch is almost uncanny, he's extremely elusive, and he is smart.  He's an important cog in the Seattle machine, that goes without saying.  He's also benefited from a very strong team around him and excellent playcalling (generally).

 

What will be interesting to see is if Seattle tones down the run first approach before or after he signs his mega deal where he becomes the focal point for the offense.  For most teams, they know they have to stop Lynch first before they can do much else because the play action game is killer for Wilson.  

 

If I'm Wilson, why break the team?  While everyone wants to to get paid, in Seattle, he can become a community corner stone and be something special both on an off the field.  Why destroy that for a few extra million you can make up in sponserships and good will?

 

I don't think this is a major thing.  Both sides will get things straightened out and move on together.  It just doesn't make sense to try to burn it all...


In Topic: Jaworski believes the Bucs will take Mariota

It's hard to go against the grain with an opinion like that.  Seems like Jaws wants more clicks and attention.  I have no idea, both guys look really good.  Though for Winston the turnovers keep coming up.

 

Who knows.  It ought to be interesting come draft night.


In Topic: New Bungie game: Destiny

14 April 2015 - 08:50 AM

Hey folks!  If you're still a fan, you might have heard that Bungie finally is starting to release some details on House of Wolves. 

 

A quick summary from me:

May 19th is the day!

Prison of Elders / Arena is going to be a new endgame PVE event.  It's only three people as opposed to six, and a lot of folks are thinking like a firefight/horde mode style of play.  I'm excited for something like that!

Trials of Osiris is coming as well!  The gear looks absolutely amazing.

No raid - they are going to release it later this year...only 8 months to go??  I think it will be out over the summer before the Comet release personally.

Upgrade your legendaries (or just fatebringer?) - They showed a fatebringer going from 300 attack to 365 attack...hrm...Might be time to farm some VoG HM before May 19th...

The Reef as a social space!  Finally, a new place for the robots to sweep!

 

You can read up on all the official particulars from Bungie.net.

 

The response on the b.net forums is pretty hilarious.  People losing their poo left and right considering the details are pretty vague as best.  For me, I think Bungie does listen to the player feedback and monitors the player data very attentively.  HoW will be better than TDB, though maybe not much.  It will at least be progress.  Despite all the internet-tears (200/200 in a 12 second span there), folks are going to forget about the raid being delayed because they are going to be too busy in Arena while they upgrade their older legendary gear.

 

Looking forward to it!  Though I need to make some more time for Crota and get my last few shard for 32...  Alas time!


In Topic: "won't be there when we pick"

I like Diggs. If it wasn't for durability concerns I think he'd be more highly thought of. I don't think spend a draft pick at all on Conley. Someone will take a late round flier on him because he's fast, but he's a track star trying to play football. He's just not a football player.


Hey! Don't sell Conley short! He's also a Star Wars fan and film maker!

😀

And he won't be there when we pick! Ever!

In Topic: Season 5: The Walking Dead

Once Aaron was talking about the three people, and Davidson being strong and smart, I had a feeling that he would be the founder of the wolves, or something along those lines.  Though a question I do have, IF Davidson was in Alexandria at some point, wouldn't he want to go back once he had a good force and squash them and their veneer of civilization?  Or has he been building up his rolling zombie army controlled via flashing lights and pop music?

 

The dynamics next season are going to be so good!  So much wonderful story information is there.  I wonder how Morgan and Rick will reconcile? 

 

And Khyber53, I loved your post a few up, but didn't want to hit the whole quote!  Love how the Broken Windows theory is reflected in The Walking Dead!
