Well I just barely surived this week.  Has anyone else had a game this close in '08?

Remy's Raiders          49.93
Zissou Mightyl Muggs 49.46

If I can win one more, I think I'm in the playoffs since either the Cranes or Isotopes are going to lose.  For teams that finish with similar records, is the tie-breaker head to head or total points?

I'm sure that they'll plead it down to something where he does no time. 

I'm not so sure about that.  Did you hear the quotes from the Mayor?  He basically said there is a mandatory jail sentence for this crime and asked what we would be teaching our kids if we dished out something less than this for someone just because he's famous.  When the mayor singles you out as someone to make an example of I think you're going to do jail time, but we'll see.

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Does Hasbro replace broken figures?
« on: December 3, 2008, 11:02 PM »
I think if it's something you recently bought, you should take it back to the retailer and complain that it broke.  That's less hassle and they'll probably take care of you to make sure you keep shopping at that store.  If it's something you've had for a while and it broke, you can try Hasbro, but if it's been played with and broke, I don't see that as their fault.  This stuff just isn't as durable as our vintage figs.

I gave up getting "everything" way back when the POTC figures launched.  Mostly repacks of stuff that had just come out a year before was an obvious ploy to get more money out of completists and I'm glad I decided to walk way way back then.  I have bought some of the Legends repacks, but mainly just stick to the "new" stuff these days.  Of course, I buy most of the carded figs 1x carded and 1x loose, so I probably end up spending way more than anyone who buys 1x of everything.   :P

If the league uses the same standard it did with Pac-Man (who I agree does not need to be in the league or walking about among us law abiding citizens) then Burress will be watching more football than playing next season.  And don't get me started on Ray Lewis.

Can't wait for the NY Giant spin doctor fans to start the excuse train IF they start losing though...even though they were the loudest to tell Cowboy fans to suck it up with the injury problems.

I assume NY will play better without him though.  In fact counting on it today.

What Burress really needs to concern himself with the legal side of this, taking a gun into a nightclub is usually illegal (even here in Texas).

You have both guns AND nightclubs in Texas? 

 ;D

This guy should be playing for the Raiders or the Bengals.


Or maybe not playing at all.  I bet that gunshot wound made his hamstring injury much improved.   ::)

Good points Jesse, and I think Burress has been brought down a peg or two.  Proof that the offense can score without him is humbling to say the least.

If I wee the coach of a team, I would expect my star players to be leaders and that would mean following all the rules.

Dude, if you wee the coach of a team, you don't need to tell us all about it.   ;)

Show Hasbro you truly do care.   ::)

I couldn't agree more with this.  The more I hear about the Carkoon pack, the more I want one, but I have decided without a doubt that I am not getting this thing unless it's on clearance.  If it sells well at regular price (even if you have a discount or coupon), Target's just going to keep launching these at ridiculous prices.

I'm a fan of Burress but he deserved the one game suspension for not calling in and the 1st quarter benching for not going to treatment when he was supposed to.  He has to follow the same rules as the rest of the team, and the rest of the team doesn't seem to have a problem with it.

I'm not a big fan of Burress after reading all of the crap he's given the team and total lack of respect for his teammates and coaches.  I don't think this one event is deserving of a benching (and think most coaching staffs would agree) - it's the continued disrespect and lack of any other options that led to this.  I didn't see any vote from his teammates whether they care or not, so not sure where your comment comes from?   ???

Besides, the game he was completely out of I think was the game against the Seahawks where they won 44-6.

Well, that was the point of this whole discussion.  Do players who mean more to their team (i.e. Adrian Peterson) get softer treatment than players who the team can get by without.  If the Giants knew their chances of winning with Burress off the field were signfiicantly reduced, would they have held him out of the whole game?  If so, and they lost the game, would that be fair to his teammates?

Burress has been chronically fined for crap like that by the Giants for like 3 years, it was probably a case his "last chance" than anything

Peterson was late to meeting, probably his first time...big difference

Hey Scott, when are you coming up for another meeting?  I want my free beer.   ;D

Yeah I know it was (supposedly) something dumb that he said was unimportant but which the team was public in saying they did NOT say it was important enough to miss work over.  And again, pick up your cell phone and call, ya know?  I mean I could see missing work for any myriad of emergencies, and ya just need to use that amazing piece of technology that gives you basically no excuse not to get ahold of someone. ;D

Well, it's easy to sit here and say that, but we still don't know the situation.  Maybe he was on his way to practice and found out his kid was running late and got into a fight with his wife, then drove in all upset about that and got stuck in traffic and just said to he11 with practice.  Maybe he forgot his cell when he stormed out or couldn't get reception.  Heck, maybe he had a phone, but didn't have the right number to call.  Or maybe he's just full of himself and couldn't be bothered to pick up the phone.

The point is, I think it's silly to keep him out of a game because he missed practice.  If he didn't make a game, then that's a big problem, but guys miss practice for soreness or injury all the time.  I work in an office, which is obviously very different, and most people would call in if something was up, even something serious.  However, I've seen people not show up because of traffic or weather or kids or whatever and not call in or change their out of office or their voicemail.  It would be ridiculous to see any of these people punished for something like this unless they missed some major deadline or presentation, which I would liken more to a game than a practice.

Besides, not having a good player play punishes the rest of the team as much, if not more than the player.  If you want to punish these guys, slap a big fat fine on them for missing practice - something like 5% of their annual pay or something substantial they will notice.  Just my two cents.

I didn't even know she was in that movie.  Yay for bangs though.

Yay for latex gloves and boots - not a whole lot else exciting in that picture.   ;)
