    In other news...

    Actually the toy shortage would be caused by market uncertainty due to Toys'R'Us closing. Toy orders and levels are determined 6-8 months in advance but this year the manufacturers cut back due to uncertain demand as buyers like Walmart didn't know how much to increase their orders because no one can guess whether the sales will go to retailers or online. Excess toy inventory is really hard to move and that shelf space is needed for nonseasonal goods.

    2018-19 NFL Thread.

    More like general ineptness and impotence. The NFL has no power to compel cooperation, so if the victims won't cooperate then they won't interview the accused because they don't want to appear biased and they want to avoid a repeat of Ray Rice. Rice told them exactly what was in the video, but seeing it made them feel they misjudged the seriousness of the incident and their initial punishment. (Which they did IMO) They and the Ravens then went back and changed his punishment. Then when Ezekiel Elliot was investigated the NFL interviewed the victim but didn't allow Elliot to present any evidence or witnesses on his behalf even though the police report had documented statements that the accuser was lying and copies of her text messages threatening "to ruin his career" dated before the incident. The NFL does just enough to quell the public outrage over domestic violence cases and no more.

    It's a $300K+ a year job and long snappers have pretty good job security.

    HFFL '18: Son of Gronk

    Whew, the Redskins D/ST didn't go negative enough to cost me the game!
  5. All I want is the Gullacy storylines with MI6. You can make that SHIELD without too much effort

    Godzilla, King of the Monsters

    Ghidorah has been a villain in all the movies except one and in that he was a mechanized version that was created by time travelers to stop Godzilla.

    I heard that the NFL and the Chiefs were not allowed to see the video during their investigation because the hotel and law enforcement kept it sealed. If true. then I'll cut them a tiny amount of slack. Good on the Chiefs for releasing him for lying to them .

    Just stop it. There were plenty of bad and missed calls against both teams. The team that loses will always be more aggrieved.

    And now, for your daily dose of cute...

    Not so cute if they get under and over your house. $1500 in repairs to the ceiling and plumbing and many mornings awakening to the scramble of tiny feet.

    Agents Of SHIELD!

    Fans don't agree. It's the most watched Marvel show. https://www.syfy.com/syfywire/agents-of-shield-most-viewed-marvel-show

    You have to get the DC streaming service. My cousin paid for it and I use his roku when I'm visiting.

    Episode 1 of Titans. It was better than I anticipated. First off, it is loosely based on the comic. Robin is a detective on the Detroit PD but does have the same background and origin with Batman. Raven is a big change. She is a teen who has no idea of her powers or origin. There are mysterious cultists after her. Starfire is an amnesiac. She dresses in hooker chic club wear and is involved in looking for Raven in some capacity. Beast Boy robs an electronic store as a tiger and runs off with the latest game in his mouth. The show is pretty dark in theme. Starfire kills four Russian mobsters , one in a fight and the others are taken out when she is shot and her powers manifest. Raven's powers come to the fore when she is threatened by a cultist and he dies a grisly death. Robin brutalizes 8 thugs in an alley. Think Marvel Nexflix taken to the next step. The show is being published weekly so no binges until season 1 is over. there are currentl 4 episodes out.

    2018 Baseball Thread (MLB and whatever)

    The Rangers will be better than the Orioles by far. The Rangers would be decent if they had a little improvement from their youngsters and sign a couple of pitchers. The Orioles are headed for 2-3 more seasons of 100+ losses.

    HERO master

    That sounds more like Runequest than Rolemaster. Rolemaster was level based and gave skill points at each level.
