Wasn't there a post a while back about new Target DPCI's that had an unexplained starfighter for like $60-65?  Any chance this is it?

He's huge alright, ...he almost seems too big.  Nice figure though.  I really like Dice.  He's nice, especially for the price.

And that is the difference between action figure collectors and hot wheels collectors.   ;)

Don't be ashamed to admit that you've probably done the same thing in front of the Star Wars aisle at Target.  It's okay.

Uh actually no, I haven't.  And it's not okay.  I think you need professional help Force Gay.

So anyone think Locke is Jacob? I think Locke got stuck outside his body becoming Jacob and the six need to get Locke's body back to the island so Jacob/Locke can become one again. This could be why Locke hear Jacob say "help me" inside the cabin in the last season.

Hmnn.  That's an interesting theory.  It's going to be hard to explain how his essence got trapped outside of body though.

Remember all those people from the plane that the others took?  Anyone have any theories on what that was all about?  I thought one of them mentioned to Sawyer that they were "there to watch," but watch what?  They didn't seem intent on escaping, getting back to the other castaways, or telling their "friends" what was going on.  For that matter, why were they really chosen over the others?

As much as I love the old school G1 transformers, I gave the new designs some serious thought and it makes sense. If you look at the robot design of alot of the (origional) transformers they screamed "human" too much. The designs in the movie for their robot forms looks alien and that would make more sense as they literaly are aliens.

My complaint with the new designs is that it’s just too hard to make out what part of the robot you’re looking at in given scenes.  Some of those fight scenes in the first movie were so hard to follow based on these designs, the speed they’re moving at, and the extreme unnecessary zoom – is that Prime’s leg or Starscream’s elbow filling up the screen?  Couldn’t tell you.  I also love the look of G1 stuff versus these new models, but I think I could stomach these better if I could tell what the heck I was looking at in any given scene.

I love the idea of these, but not sure I can stomach the price point along with the increase in SW.  My salary hasn't increased 14% to offset the 14% increase in figure costs.  :P

I don't follow the Steelers so..... does Harrison do things like he did in the Super Bowl a lot? If not I feel JediJman is being a little over critical of Harrison as a whole based off one questionable violent moment.

If you've discussed this already, don't answer, you two's posts are too long and I don't care enough so I haven't read them all the way through.

NICK.  We just moved past the whole Harrison thing.  I don't follow the Steelers, nor do I have a tally of the number of jerk moves he's made on other guys.  Maybe he has two and maybe he has 100.  How would you count them up?  Look at the debate over just this one action let alone others.  What number of similar violent actions would satisfy you?

In my own opinion, he was way too rough with Francisco for no reason.  It's one thing to get mad and hit or push a guy, but it's quite another to keep going after him once he's down and not fighting back.  If you look at the way he whipped that drunk in Cleveland, that seems overly aggressive to me to - maybe not to some others.  I don't know Harrison personally and I'm not going to waste time looking up more of his plays, but the guy seems to enjoy beating up on people based on these two instances.  It's been my experience that people who can't control their anger are repeat offenders, but I don't need a count on that to make up my own mind that he's a thug. 

By the way, there are a lot of interesting quotes online from Francisco about the play.  He says he had the urge to fight back, but held his anger in check becasue it knew it might hurt their chances of winning the big game.  Chew this over - had the refs decided that Harrison's actions occurred a second sooner, Arizona would have had a first down with a strong likelyhood of scoring AND cutting more time off the clock later in the game.  Harrison could have very easily cost his team the game and has to know that, yet he still went after Francisco.  If that's not evidence of anger management issues, I don't know what is.

As far as my coaching goes, I really think it's quite simple...  You teach your kids to obey the rules of the sport, and if they don't they accept the consequences, but by disobeying the rules they lose respect not just for their opponents, but for themselves and their team.  They put their team in negative situations, but obeying the rules also teaches respect of the opposing team...  That's sort of a given...  Knowing not to break the rules is, in itself, sportsmanship and teaching kids to respect their opponent.  No great mystery there, and kids understand that, and the concept of fair play display respect on the field for everybody including themselves. 

Dude, I don't find anything about that paragraph "simple."  Are you still sober?   ;) 

In all seriousness, I'm not interested in fighting about this anymore.  I still think Harrison is a violent thug and that the game could have been called better.  You think he got penalized appropriately and the game was called fairly.  We have a different outlook on things and I respect your right to your own opinion. 

In the spirit of moving on and poking fun at my own team, I found a funny video while I was on youtube.  Do you think This Play counts as a turnover against Favre?   ;D  Check out the block from the first yellow guy on the gray guy.

Dont know what happened, but when I saw her last night, I thought to have babies with her... does that happen to anyone of you when you see a Toy?  ??? kidding

I guess I dont know but I'm in love with the real one... hot Jewish girl as Leia was, both hot Jewish hehe.

I can honestly say that I've never looked at any action figure and thought about having babies with them.  Half-size, poorly articulated kids that need a new diaper every few hours are not my cup of tea.  Your hot action figure would never be the same after kids anyway.   ;)

Good lord you rock with the picture references!  Did you just know that or did you go looking for it?

Jesse, no one cares about 1996 or the penguins.  I really don't care if there were bad calls in every game over the last decade or if this is the first game ever where the officiating was a big deal.  The calls were questionable in this game and the outcome could have very easily gone the other way several times in this game or at the very least poorly handled.  I think there is a Hockey thread if you want to go there and talk about the penguins.   ;)

We can (obviously) debate forever about whether Harrison's hand was open or not - I could care less if you want to call it a punch or not.  Like I said, an open palm hit is just as effective as a punch, so I'll agree to that if it really makes a difference to you.  It was a violent hit followed by unprovoked, repeated shoving to the ground no matter what terminology you want to use.  You're still being two-faced about the Harrison thing. 

You stated what you would tell your kids earlier and it had nothing to do with respecting your opponent - it had to do with "not costing your team."  Hitting someone after the game doesn't hurt the team's chances of winning does it?  So why would your kids think that's wrong?   That's a very clear example of unsportsmanlike conduct - I don't understand why you think sportsmanship is a very fine line.  I've played several sports in my day and was never confused about whether my actions or other's actions were right or wrong.  If you're confused by this, I again seriously suggest you re-evaluate your decision to coach. 

As for the Cleveland game, you've got a warped sense of right and wrong.  I do think Harrison was wrong in dropping him to the ground.  Here is a guy who clearly can't resisit the opportunity to lay the hurt on someone else.  It's not Harrison's job to catch some nutbar on the field, is it?  I mean, they do have a few security guys at these games right?  Even if he wants to help out, I think there's probably a better way to restrain some drunk than lifting him off the ground, chucking him down, and holding him down by the neck.  You're talking about a huge professional athlete in full pads going against a lightweight drunk here - what if he had broken the guy's back or shattered his spine?  Yeah the guy "illegally" ran on the field, so he deserves to die, eh?  Do you speed up to hit pedestrians walking outside of the cross walk as well?

So much for short replies.  You're not saying anything new, so I'm not wasting any more time on a detailed response.  You've obviously gone to the trouble of looking through pages of YT comments and posting paragraphs about some "roughing the holder" play that was "similarly bad to Harrison's play."  If you're willing to go all that trouble, why not just quickly find a vid or an article about it as proof that it was jsut as bad.  For someone who's not interested in proving their point, you sure have a lot to say about it.

Frankly, I don't appreciate you questioning my integrity or honesty when I've clearly layed out the facts and provided proof.  You've provided no evidence of any wrong doing on the cardinals part, you've thrown out unfounded stats, and you flat out lie about what's been said by others - not much integrity in that my friend. 

Anyway, you cleared everything up for me when you said you'd tell your kids that Harrison's actions were wrong simply because they could have "cost his team."  So who care's about treating other players with respect - it's fine to beat on someone if it's not detrimental to the team, right?  Is your lesson that Harrison should have waited until after the game to attack Francisco, so that it didn't hurt his team?  Ridiculous.

Congrats on the SB win - I hope your favorite thug enjoys his pretty new ring.

Speaking of which, here's another fun Harrison beat down of a Browns fan on the field.  Picking the guy up off his feet and throwing him to the ground is classic, but I can't tell if he's holding down the guy's throat or his head. Doesn't really matter - at least it didn't hurt his team!
