I've heard from a source, dunno how reliable yet, that the taker match might be changed. No idea why, but that's what the source is saying. I don' really believe it outside of the fact that he's yet to lie about anything.
Mania did go from a crapper to at least watchable due to 2 Bryan matches.

Posted in: TelevisionQuote from PlaguefatherI guess I can understand that, I just hope he isn't completely done with the WWE, maybe they can find him a non-competing spot in the company, maybe in talent development? or in the writing dept? I honestly think Punk would be a better storyteller than everyone else they have writing for them.
Also, he could come back as a part-timer occaisionally, you never know, lol.
He's a better EVERYTHING than the current staff. Him and Heyman could write a better month of tv and ppv than the entire creative staff combined. I am in the same boat as Punk, i'm sick and tired of enjoying wrestlers who continue to get squashed and ignored while the fans cheer them. I'm sick and tired of everything having to be about being 6'7" and huge and not about skill and showmanship. Batista winning the rumble pushed back the WWE by 10 years. 10 years ago is when most of us stopped watching and its gonna be the same again without Punk. I only hope that Bryan ether gets his due for some of these guys or calls it quits as well and shows the WWE what is wrong with it.
I've not had this large of a change of opinion in something in a long time. Everything was looking up with the Network launching and them entering the times. They might as well go back to standard tv, lose the HD and wrestle once a month with all faces winning.

Posted in: SportsQuote from scotti_badassThe new WTF-FL champion:
This team was ran by a former co-worker of mine that I talk to once every couple of months in the off season. After never playing fantasy football 3 years ago, he can now call himself a champion
I want to thank all of the MTGS crew that is in my league:
Qtip--The Cotton Swabs
and good lord...I can't remember who here was running the Clam Jammers Anonymous team. Who was it? lol
this has been a long day. I need sleep. /sigh
Ouch, its sad that Winterfell died because of the late Reggie Bush scratch.
Love the league, lets do something crazy again for the next season. I stated in the draft room that with the 3 QB potential, i'd go for 4 RB's first, and it got me 3rd, so i'm very happy with how that strategy turned out. Cutler getting hurt could have cost me big time if Foles hadn't done so well as a backup.

My LGS does 2hg standard events on the 5th Friday of each month that has 5. Its a pretty fun way to explore new standard decks.Posted in: Magic General

I can certainly aid in the leagues next season. Its easy to create the 4 clones and pass the commissioner over.Quote from EmocakesI dropped him and started Demaryius Thomas and Antonio Brown. Go figure.
I do think we have the man-power to have 4 people run separate leagues if that is what people want to do. Several members seem active enough and/or have experience as an organizer or leader of some sort(Votan, Arcadic, scotti and myself, of course). As long as the settings are all identical there shouldn't be any problems. That is if Chris is interested in shedding some of that extra weight on his shoulders. I'm honestly fine with whatever we do, I'll be back next year either way.
Agree with Votan on the thanks stuff btw, I just wish the guys in my league offered me free fatpacks.
Quote from Surging ChaosCan someone explain to me why teams in the NFL don't tank their seasons to get better draft picks? Given all the talk about NBA teams already tanking for the 2014 NBA draft, I figure I would ask about this here.
Unlike the NBA, there is no lottery for the NFL draft. The worst records get the best picks, guaranteed. I look at teams like the Falcons and the Texans who clearly have lost seasons and would benefit from tanking. Worst case scenario is that you don't need a high draft pick, but you would just trade down and get more picks.
Other reasons include just starting talent that was a draft pick to evaluate further and tofind new plays and why your losing. The NBA is a joke because teams always tank to get a star player, which is the only way 8 plus teams even sell tickets. Even when the Rams were terrible they never got blacked out locally because people still went to the games because they knew they'd at least get a show.

I think my bench was enough to win this week against some teams. I also left Andre Johnson on the bench in MTGS1.Quote from scotti_badassOh, and congrats to Arcadic for leaving Foles on his bench in his WTF-FL matchup but hey, at least you look like you'll win against an opponent who got hit HARD with 6 players on Bye.
I clinched a week 12 bye in the WTF-FL by clinching my division this week. If Chris Johnson continues to produce and not be a bust, i'll love my chances to win it all. If Cutler comes back and is healthy? I love them.
In MTGS1 this week, Team Blade and I are fighting for the 1 seed. In my pay league? Opponent had...wait for it....4 players who scored 25+, while not starting a QB, and won. Curses!
Stafford/Tron combo is like magic. Sometimes the kids all dig it and other times you accidentally forget to poke holes in the bunnies box.Quote from Macius@whitemage: and gronk said "Gronk Smash"
I really wish this was a keeper league as I have fallen in love with Megatron. If I were to repeat my drafting, I would make sure to draft Stafford. I have learned that when the Tron does well, Stafford is sure to follow.

Nah, even though you ended it, Jey's play was far more worthy of Town LVP. He's a confirmed town double-voter that lived 4!!! Days!!!. We put off killing Jey because of how terrible his votes were and how awesome they were to us. Jey is the town LVP/ scum MVP.Quote from LnGrrrRYeah, I deserve the town LVP. The game state had me way too flustered.
Quote from Zinger2099What about neutral MVP huh Tar? :-P
I think, all hings considered, I played this game pretty well (exception being missing 90% of Day 2 and never really reading it.)
All things considered, you played horribly and were 100% a non-factor. When the town lost all the extra kills, you could have aided them but instead decided to some completely bone-headed plays and in the end did nothing to aid the town. For someone who has a no-lie policy, you certainly like to throw information around without confirming it.
I'm still thrown for a loop why the town thinks that using daykills as lynches day 1 was " bad play ". It should have been super obvious to the town with all the abilities they had that the scum would have something to mess with the kills at night. It ended up being for naught, as Iso was killed, but this town had zero ability to hindsight. When Guardman was lynched, i was sure the scum would win, since he and AI were the only threats to the scum and we took them out in one shot. We tried to kill seppel, but obviously we got caught, and he got protected and given stuff and was part of a falseclaim, so there was zero chance of him getting re-targeted another night.
Seppel pushing for 5 scum was a tell to me, but i could never figure out why. If i hadn't been lynched, my plan was to do the Azreal trick." Seppel is alive on day 5, ether the scum are idiots or he himself is scum."
Overall, except for the time mechanic, i feel the game went well and was designed well. Time mechanic might be better served as a variable defined by the gamestate. Day 1-3 is Day 1, Day 4-6 is Day 2 and Day 7-10 is day 3. It does restrict the town's ability to no-lynch, but it puts the mechanic into game. Majora should have an ability to effect time somehow as well. Other than that, i think everything is balanced, we just got super lucky with 2 masks falling into our hands day 1.

Posted in: MafiaQuote from SeppelUnvote (I can't find the quote where Arcadic said town/not-town)
Also wait a minute.
Of course you can't because i didn't, i claimed the ability only once, and i know i looked it up before claiming. The important part of the mask is that it cannot find neutrals and label them as such. Also, how does that exactly make me lying scum? Zinger would have already called me out as thirsty as he is for my death. Your looking for a quick easy lynch, which for some god-forsaken reason is me.
I'm sure that the scumteam is Generic, Seppel, Wheat and LnGrrr now. It does feel like all is for naught though, with the lyol announcement from the mask, the daykill and a rogue neutral.

I was roleblocked last night. Not hushed, but actually told i was roleblocked.Posted in: Mafia
I've already claimed Postman's hat is my true mask.
I'm eager to hear what proph's replacement has to say and gives us his reads. I still thing Proph is scum and his behavior all game was scummy.

How is that not two non-mask actions? Or can you use the abilities you copy as mask actions?Quote from Zinger2099@Arcadic : 1. Why do I need to explain this? I will answer, but I want to know why you want to know so badly, as well as why it maters. Here is your answer though: I target two players. The first player I target is given the CHOICE of trading masks with the second player. They don't have to say yes. Jey K can verify this. This is how my natural trade ability works. The Trade ability that I got from the Keaton mask is FORCED and offers no choice (which is the one I used to take the postman hat from you).
