    On principle, I will not watch that video because I hate that guy and his dumb fuckin' face. I will be reporting you to the authorities.

    The Superhero Thread

    Anyone watched that DC Titans show? It's a live action Teen Titans. My friend had me watch the entire first season on our trip to STL a few weeks ago. It's honestly pretty decent. Refreshing to see some blood and swearing. CGI isn't the best, but the overall I really enjoyed a show I fully expected to hate. I was impressed by the writing and some of the subjects they were willing to explore or touch on. They do refer to other DC characters in this universe, but they never do more than show the backs of some of the "big hitters" like Batman. There's also a spinoff show called The Doom Patrol. I only got to see part of episode 2, but it seemed really interesting. Cyborg from Teen Titans is a main character on that show, I think to carry the group and reel people in because the rest of the cast are characters I had not heard of and they don't really jump off the screen or anything.

    Jets sign Leveon Bell 4 years 52mil

    Which means literally nothing when it comes to the Steelers and how they have operated since the 70's. The Steelers honor their star players' contracts even when it does not benefit the team to finish out their last couple years. He'd have seen all $45M of the guaranteed money plus his base salary. And like I said before, the contract details had not been released until today. The SB Nation article you posted is incorrect and claims the only money he had fully guaranteed was $10M for year 1 when in reality it was $20.5M. They and Rapoport (a stupid fucking hack--why are we even entertaining his reporting as fact?) both incorrectly assume that the only guaranteed part of a contract is the signing bonus when in reality any part of the contract can be deemed "guaranteed," which is the case with his current contract as well as the one the Steelers offered. That dumbass SB article spent a bunch of time whining about "establishing a narrative" while in the same breath quoting Rapoport and pointing only at the $10M signing bonus to slant the narrative toward Bell being the winner. It would behoove you to read this article comparing the fine details of the contracts. They estimate that he lost $19M in real cash by sitting out '18. https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/leveon-bell-contract-details-revealed-heres-how-much-jets-new-star-may-have-lost-by-sitting-out-2018/ LeVeon is only getting $25M fully guaranteed money total. This year he will get $14.5M guaranteed while the Steelers' deal offered $20.5M guaranteed in year 1. Year 2 with the Jets bumps up to $26M total while the Steelers deal rose to $33M. Year 3 moves to $45M from the Steelers whereas the Jets gave themselves an out. In 2021 he's only going to get a $3M training camp bonus as well as $500k from per game bonuses ($31.250*16). This situation is laughably bad for LeVeon considering all the posturing and spouting off he did. I guess if we're being positive he got a year's vacation at the cost of ~$19M.

    Rolling guaranteed = still guaranteed. We don't know the full details of his new contract. And he still missed all of last year's $14.5M while getting fat.

    2019 TGP Mock Draft (Discussion Thread/Sign-ups)

    Fuck a TE, the Steelers need defense. Get out of here with that.

    You're talking out of your ass. The Steelers offered him $70/5yr with $33M guaranteed in the first two years and $45M guaranteed total. He took $10M less guaranteed money and 875K less per year while also losing the $14.5M from last year's tag. He and his retarded "NFL players are slaves" agent fucked this situation up massively.

    '18-'19 NBA Season Thread

    I think I'm on the same page with you, basically. I hated having to root for the LeBron Cavs against GSW. Never liked Kyrie--I still contend that he is overrated as fuck outside of making that one amazingly clutch shot. I watched this awesome interview with Charles Barkley on The Dan Patrick show. I don't remember where in the interview they talk about it, but he lists his top 8 or so players of all time. He said that, to him, LeBron could never climb into his top 5 and that he has him currently at 8 right behind Tim Duncan. Charles Barkley is my favorite NBA analyst/commentator. He basically espouses all of the exact opinions about players that I find myself saying. Somewhere else in this interview he called Westbrook the 3rd best player behind LeBron and Kawhi.

    I think real basketball fans saw this coming. Talking heads and casual fans are generally off the money. That squad has no shooters. LeBron has always needed to be surrounded by a bunch of shooters and 3-and-D guys, but right now he's the best 3pt shooter on his team. They were never going to make the palyoffs unless they got Kawhi or PG3. This year was a growth year before they get a star or two next year. They could potentially get AD and another star with the young assets they have.

    Who trades for Antonio Brown?

    Nah, Phins, Brown has always been a little "young money" cunt. He deserves to rot on a team without a QB. His stats without Ben are pretty meh and he's literally never caught a TD in his career from anyone but Ben. Without Ben:

    Rapoport is LaCanfora's cousin, but dear lord do I hope he's right.
