  1. ”You know you done f****** up, right?”
  2. Certainly hope most of you are having a better Monday than Roseanne Barr Shortly after Wanda Sykes announced she would no longer be a part of ABC’s hit Roseanne revival following Roseanne Barr‘s racist tweet, the network has canceled the show. “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” president of ABC Entertainment Channing Dungey announced in a statement Tuesday. The backlash has been fierce after Barr, who has been outspoken in her support of President Donald Trump, tweeted a since-deleted attack on former Barack Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett, who is black, during a racist Twitter rant overnight Monday. “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby = vj,” she wrote, using Jarrett’s initials in response to a tweeted conspiracy theory about the Obama administration. Barr also attacked Chelsea Clinton, tweeting a since-deleted lie that “she’s married to soros nephew,” referring to billionaire George Soros. Sara Gilbert publicly denounced her costar, and several other celebrities called on the ABC to cancel the show. “Roseanne’s recent comments about Valerie Jarrett, and so much more, are abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show,” Gilbert tweeted on Tuesday. “I am disappointed in her actions to say the least.” “This is incredibly sad and difficult for all of us, as we’ve created a show that we believe in, are proud of, and that audiences love — one that is separate and apart from the opinions and words of one cast member,” she added.
  3. To your first point: OMFG! Irks the F*** OUT OF ME! Especially with a big premiere like this movie. Rolling in as the previews are rolling, etc. looking for enough seats for you and your crew/family. FOH! No, there are not enough seats here. Sit up front or you guys just split up but what made you think we'd have 4-7 seats waiting for you??? Second point: I think the Marvel/comic movie nerd in me always looks judgmentally at the people filing out early. However, for this one, at my theater literally only 3 people walked out. A man with is two grade school aged children. Part of me thought he was trying to get home b/c they were already up past their bed times on a school night.
  4. So...I'm kind of on an island with this one. I'll start with the good: Seeing all these characters and crossovers on screen was like watching the first Avengers x 10! Not just the characters but great actors. It's what we loved about reading the comics as kids and seeing the crossovers. Thanos: Sometimes I feel Marvel struggles with making their villains so one-dimensional and I think they crushed it with Thanos. Giving him depth, digging into his relationship with Gamora even if it was only for a bit, etc. Between Thanos, Killmonger and the Fassbender Magneto I think it's a toss-up with which one had the best showing in a comic film. Action: Loved it. They made Thanos and his crew formidable and they were putting in work all over the galaxy. I don't see how you could have been a fan of the MCU and not have gotten hyped up when Cap, Widow, and Falcon showed up at the train station or when Thor arrived in Wakanda! Now for my one complaint...*sigh: I think the Russo brothers gave us all one big pump fake with the finger snap. I think Loki, Heimdall, and Vizion are all legitimately gone (no shockers there to me). I think Gamora is too and that's a bit of a surprise to me. However, I do not believe that Peter Parker, T'Challa, Groot, etc. are truly gone. People were crying in the theater and to me it felt like Kenny dying in South Park. I realize that I can't truly judge this until we see the 2nd part but felt like a bit of a cop out to me. Full disclosure, if it would have happened to Cap, Thor, Tony, etc. I would have thought it would have been real and would have viewed this entirely different. My friends disagree with me wholeheartedly on this and if I'm wrong I'll gladly eat my crow. I legitimately loved the movie until the last 5 minutes as a result. (I did love the end-credits scene though!) This guys sums up my feelings at the end of his review: What’s more, the choice to largely wipe from existence characters who are more or less vital to the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a going concern (especially Star-Lord, Spider-Man, and freakin’ Black Panther) so dramatically inflates the stakes that it becomes all but certain the next movie will reverse most of these deaths. Had the film wiped out the original team of Avengers, leaving the next movie to focus on this new batch of heroes battling to save the old ones and realizing it was their turn to take up the mantle of Avengers, the film might have had something. As it is, everything feels like a bait and switch. Then again, maybe living up to the gravity of this situation was impossible. Perhaps the best thing we can say about Infinity War is that it hangs together at all. Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely’s screenplay works largely because it eschews more traditional emotional arcs in favor of large-scale superhero crossover storytelling, trusting the universe-ending stakes to carry the day. Perhaps that’s why the one character who seems to get something close to a full arc — in that he has clearly defined goals that he carries out by taking decisive actions even at moments when his plans are in jeopardy — is Thanos himself. I still feel a real sense that the film is writing a bunch of checks its sequel can never cash. It is in the nature of big cliffhangers to be trapped in a state of irresolution, to be re-judged after their resolutions arrive. But what happens in Infinity War should cause massive trauma in the few characters who survive, and I’m simply not convinced Marvel Studios knows how to paint with that particular brush. Great, high-stakes genre storytelling involves pain and guts and darkness. It gets its hooks into you and makes you feel all hope is lost — not that all hope is temporarily misplaced but we’ll be sure to find it by next May.
  5. True, but when I think about it TD has been pretty candid over the years. Much more so than other GMs. Usually you can read between the lines and make a solid guess at what they're going to do in FA situations. A little more guarded with draft but still pretty forthright.
  6. Oh they are absolutely going to take some Ls. Not quite like they did in the comics but I see at least one "big" death in this first Infinity War installment. Maybe 2 or 3 but not likely. My guess is it'll be either Cap or Tony but not both and if Tony survives War Machine may die. Vision is a goner I think.
  7. I reported a private message if that counts. Guy acted civil but sent some really racist stuff via DM. Nothing happened to him on the board but he actually passed away because a friend of his came on the board and mentioned it.
  8. I'm trying not to be a prisoner of the moment so I'll just say at a minimum Black Panther is in the same tier as Winter Soldier, Civil War, Guardians 1 and Iron Man 1. This movie had high expectations and DELIVERED!
  9. Someone on Twitter said this was a thread here. Had to come see for myself. Relieved that it was basically one post and a bunch of people with sense. Kudos to the Falcons fans with good sense.
  10. Apparently so is their city paper. Just lame.
  11. He'd been in the doghouse for a while. Let us not forget they were actively trying to trade him during the offseason. SB winning coaches have a certain amount of cache but as soon as we saw he was healthy and benched you know that if they lost Belicheck was going to get called out for it. Remember it wasn't that long ago when Kyle Arrington was benched for Butler in the SB. Arrington was benched in favor of Malcolm Butler in the second half, who solidified his place in New England sports lore with his goal line interception in the final minute to seal the Patriots’ fourth Super Bowl win.
  12. I love Takk and his passion but he should probably filter some of his feelings with regards to the team. Last thing he needs is for people to perceive him taking shots. Whether he is or not. This is not the first social media attention he's gotten for not being a fan of Sark.
  13. Guess I'm in the minority. Whenever I see a clip I still think about how unbelievable it was that we blew it but...I guess I just came to terms with it. Seeing Philly do what we should have done last year brings it home even more how golden an opportunity we p***ed away. That said, you gotta play to win for 60 minutes. Caps off to the Eagles and all the other teams that have done it. Maybe one day we'll get back and finish the drill and people won't hurt as much when it's brought up.
  14. That's a fair point. I think I initially felt like Arthur did because the Pats have seemingly done a lot of trolling after the SB. Even with it being such a great comeback, I never saw that organization troll the other teams they've beaten in the big games afterwards. It really made me wonder if our players were talking an inordinate amount of sh** out there. I
