Re: NFL 2017

I was partially incorrect. Defensive penalties do not always cause a clock stoppage until the following snap. However, this is the case in the last 5 minutes of the game. Found a writeup from a 2015 game on ESPN. tl;dr: prior to 1985, all defensive penalties stopped the clock at any point in the gam...

Re: STAR WARS TIME! - Spoiler Lock Lifted

If there is one thing I liked about TLJ (well there are a few, very few) it's the handling of Luke. As others mentioned he was beside himself with grief and anger. He failed. So yeah he was a little bit crazy hermit because of it. His send off wasn't far-fetched, both Obi-Wan and Yoda 'force dissol...

Re: STAR WARS TIME! - Spoiler Lock Lifted

Luke also gets a solid sendoff as part of the "love letter to fans" I mentioned earlier. The bad guy is defeated not by the Jedi Master, but by the performance of said Master. Luke Skywalker dies as a larger-than-life legend, and his sacrifice will inspire a new generation of heroes (as in...

Re: NFL 2017

Really, all the Saints had to do was some pass interference with the Vikings receivers - the clock and the distance (even with a penalty) would have done the rest. A defensive penalty would have stopped the clock (and provided a game extension if time expired), and the catch was made inside the tar...

Re: NFL 2017

The best game to watch should be Falcons/Eagles. The Eagles have only one weakness, but having an extra week of practice should smooth out some of Foles' rough edges, so I expect a close game in Philadelphia.

Is anyone being engaged by the latest AoS storyline? I'm not. It feels a bit like Jackson's Hobbit -- there's a viable plot, but it's thin, like butter spread over too much bread. Reduce it by 33% and spruce up the action sequences a bit, and it would be more traditional MCU. I'm a "catch it o...
