You can all shut up about the Hard Knocks stuff, it will be the Falcons.

    Old news brother. LOL Strock sent me a text about it an hour and a half ago but it's also good to see the news get it's own thread. Some may disagree but I really believe it was a much bigger issue than many would admit.

    Anyway I'm pleased they're being passed by this year and now what they need to do is get into the playoffs and eliminate themselves from consideration for a bit just in case the NFL has decided to do this alphabetically. "C" isn't far behind "A". LOL

    Not if we make the playoffs.


    Anyway, good news. I don't have to buy HBO now.

    Maybe this show will turn into such a ho hum thing or the NFL will be less enthused about it and they'll end up dropping it. I admit is was interesting to watch once or twice but after that it just seemed like a rehash of the same thing just with a different set of guys.

    Some see it as a documentary but I see it more as a reality show. HBO is in the entertainment business. National Geographic and the Discovery channel are in the documentary business.

    I haven't had TV in awhile but Nat Geo and Discov channel were disappointing the hell out of me. Everything seems to be reality TV, even those stations have program after program of stuff not above the reality TV label.

    Hmm, maybe they've caved to it as well. There's a lot of archival stuff on Netflix that I watch and it may be from years ago. Most of it is pretty good or at least informative for a history buff like me. I don't even bother with cable any longer. I'd rather just stream the stuff I want to watch even if I am playing catch up from a few years ago. Hell, I can even stream the Bears games and from two feet away a computer monitor is just as effective as a big screen TV watched from across the room or across a bar somewhere.

    Plus I can curse to my hearts content this way and last year I may have set a record for that. I even invented some new ones. :soapbox::rofl2:

    If we go to the playoffs, that just means they can't force us.

    So, just to spark up some thoughts (and to drive Soulman crazy) I'm going to start up a new thread for 2015.. lol

    I wonder if Mike Tice will finally unveil the vaunted "Hester Package" by mistake during Hard Knocks.
