  1. Here’s the thing... your “criticism” of Okada-Omega makes a ton of sense to me. You’re not invested in their characters so you don’t care about the in ring stuff, I get that. I love their matches but I get that. Your criticism of NXT not telling stories isn’t an opinion, it’s just 100 percent wrong. They literally tell the best stories in pro wrestling. But it is what it is.
  2. This comment is almost as laughable as Y2HH saying he’s watched NXT before.
  3. I'm pretty convinced you don't give NXT a shot at all. I completely understand it not being your style. It's pro wrestling, everyone has their likes and dislikes, that's what's great about this time in the wrestling business is there is something for everyone. That said, to say NXT doesn't have character development or good storylines is just flat out incorrect. Their matches and their ppv's are always great but the reason people get so invested in the characters is because of how they're presented and the build ups in these feuds.
  4. Thought it was really good overall. Main event was dumb and f*** Lesnar but whatever, didn't give a s*** about that match anyways. I also thought Taker-Cena was super stupid and yes of course it got a pop out of the crowd, Taker will always get a pop out of the crowd but he had a perfect send off last year and wish they would have just left it there. And Cena could be used a lot better. Nak-Styles was good, not great imo but high expectations there. They over thought the crap out of the Bryan match but awesome to see that dude back. Ronda and the IC title match were the highlights for me and I had no expectations for the mixed tag going in.
  5. Ladder match was incredible, still might be 3rd on my MOTY list at the moment. That might be the best card of all time under the wwe umbrella though. Every freaking match was at least great.

    White Sox Winner!

    On Engel's defense, dude gets to balls that most CF's don't. The two balls he's dropped this year I don't think a lot of CF's get to. That said, he's here for his defense and if he's going to get to those balls he has to finish the play off and make the catch. On the throw to home, I have no issue with the thought process, if he makes a good throw there he's got a good chance to get the runner, problem is he didn't make a good throw. And ya, Nate was getting squared up pretty good last night but as long as he's healthy, he'll be fine.

    Hope the lack of a good looking line doesn't take away from how Carson actually looked out there tonight. His pitches seemingly had more movement on them than they've had for the past 2 years and that was awesome to see. Still has to harness his control as when he was getting hit around it's because he was falling behind hitters. Certainly not saying he's going to be part of the future rotation or anything but at least he's starting to show something out there.
  9. That was fun! I really hope everyone just enjoys this season even when this team has their low moments. The highs are going to be super fun like today. Great start!

    **2018 Arch Madness**

    QUOTE (Sonik22 @ Feb 27, 2018 -> 07:28 AM) Go Dawgs. Limping in to say the least. Really don't like our odds to have to probably beat Missouri State and Alize a 3rd time. That's where I'm at and I wouldn't feel comfortable against Valpo either. That said, I'm being pessimistic just to be pessimistic, it's Loyola's tournament to lose but everything else is completely up for grabs. Hoping like hell to see us play on Sunday for the first time since 07.

    **2018 Arch Madness**

    First time since I’ve been going that I’m not doing the all session pass. I’ll be there for all the SIU games though so 1 game it is for me.

    Love the rebuild, despise this attitude

    QUOTE (balfanman @ Feb 18, 2018 -> 08:31 PM) Thank you Greg. I'm simply asking an honest question. I do not know Moncada personally and I hope that this is just a poor translation. But if there is an attitude issue it could easily grow into a situation leading to a clubhouse problem. We all have seen athletic prima donas. That particular quote just hit me wrong, but as I said in the beginning, it could well be a misquote. There's no attitude problem.

    Sox sign Hector Santiago

    QUOTE (Dick Allen @ Feb 14, 2018 -> 04:48 PM) I am not trying to pick fights or anything, just urious. When the Sox got Soria, peripherals were mentioned as something that showed he was well worth acquiring. Santiago's peripherals are and for the most part, always have been poor. Why , other than it's a free look is there optimism with this signing? I have no problem with it, and wish the Sox signed a few more, but isn't it being realistic to think this signing more than likely won't turn out a bargain? I reread the thread and no one is doing cartwheels over the signing. Everyone is just kind of on the it’s worth a flyer bandwagon.
