I know what you're saying.  But I think owners wouldn't necessarily be into him from a marketing standpoint.  I definitely think they would catch a lot of flack from their football people.  Especially since in this era of NFL parity, almost any team can really compete for the Vince Lombardi trophy.

I definitely think the guy has serious athletic ability.  He was an NCAA wrestling national champ, right?  But his absence from any kind of organized football since high school is a huge strike against him.  I think a route like the Arena league, the CFL or NFL Europe would be the most likely scenario for him before he plays a single down in the NFL.  Could he get signed and get invited to an NFL training camp?  Possibly, but I would be really surprised to see him make any team's roster.

Now, upon looking at the article, I'm even more unsure about the guy.  He'd most likely play DE.  Honestly, I think that may be more of a skill position than someone like him is ready for.  He would really need to work on his footwork in a big way.  There's also a lot more to that position than just pass rushing.  It's about reading the offense, and trying to figure out pass versus run.  I definitely don't think he'd be a serious pass rush threat to top flight O linemen like Runyon, Pace, Turley or Ogden.  I think if he were lighter and faster, he might have more options in playing LB, but he'd need to shed like 30 odd pounds for that.

Three.  Playstation, PS2 and N64.

From reading the article, I'd be surprised if the guy could make an NFL practice squad.  He hasn't got any NCAA football experience, and hasn't played since High School.  It seems like kind of a longshot to me.  He could always go for the CFL or the Arena League.  I'm definitely surprised he didn't try to get on any of the NFL Europe rosters.  Add in the motorcycle accident injuries, and it doesn't look good to me.

YES.  This is why I have a 10' x 10' climate controlled storage unit.

This looks like a wait and see situation to me.  I hope they don't leave the She Hulk out on the cold when it comes to the FF though.

All of the OTC I've seen at regular retail have been basic lightsabers.  Everything else I've seen has been at import shops.

I think a Royal Guard could be a strong possibility for the EPISODE III Unleashed line.

The rest of it is that the "establishment" is afraid of him.  They want to keep him on the fringe in an effort to keep him from showing the American public how much they're getting screwed over.

Michael Moore does a good enough job keeping himself on the fringe.

I wouldn't pay to see this movie, but I'll watch it for free, like I did with Bowling for Columbine.

Did I ask for your opinion stalker boy?

A smooth as silk transaction was made between Mikey D and me.  Nice!  Thank you much!

If it's such bunk, then produce some evidence as to why you think it's not accurate.  Christopher Hitchins wrote a good article on it, and it's probably one of the better assessments of the movie.  He's a credible journalist.  Are you?  Or is it bunk because someone told you so?

Is some of what's in the movie true?  Damn straight.  Is some of it stilted to support Moore's viewpoint?  It's likely.

I think everyone should see this movie just to see what this war is really like.  It gets cleaned up a lot in network news editing before you see it on your tv at home.  It's time for the American public to get a little reality and see how distasteful the truth is.

The real question everyone should be asking is why are all these people trying to slander Michael Moore?  Some of it is to spin things to their way of thinking.  The rest of it is that the "establishment" is afraid of him.  They want to keep him on the fringe in an effort to keep him from showing the American public how much they're getting screwed over.

Someone mentioned this possibility to me:  Rams Bettis.  It's not out of the realm of possibility, and that would give us the cool, old-school Rams uni.  There's also Curtis Martin, another former Pat.

It looks as though there might be some more repaints in this series other than Bledsoe.  The assortment is kind of light as things stand now.  Anyone want to venture a guess about some of the others?

I think these are possible:

-Black Jersey McNabb
-Giants Warner
-Raiders Sapp
-Redskins Brunell
-Eagles T.O.
-Browns Garcia

The only one I could come close to guessing a price for would be the Sail Barge.  It would probably be a pretty sizable box, at least as big as the EPISODE I Fambaa box.  I'd pay $80 tops.

With the others, it really depends on how it's done.  There are obvious constraints on doing the Death Star and Cloud City.  It would really depend on how large it is.

Let's see.  Only three, huh?

Mos Eisley Cantina
-Obi-Wan Kenobi - Cantina Fight
-Hem Dazon
-Bom Vimdim
-SA Sandtrooper (orange pauldron)

Battle Of Hoth
-Luke Skywalker - Snowspeeder Pilot w/ removable helmet, grappling hook, lightsaber, blaster w/ holster, limpet mine
-General Veers w/ removable armor, hat & holographic Darth Vader
-AT-AT Driver resculpt
-Major Bren Derlin

Death Star 2
-Moff Jerjerrod
-Imperial Dignitary Sim Aloo
-Luke Skywalker - Thone Room w/ manacles
-Emporer Palpatine w/ throne accessory

You do realize that the warning sticker is on the clamshell, not on the card....right?
