Re: TV Discussion Thread

i thought their intelligence was displayed to be pretty high, personally, but i'm so steeped in fantasy that depicts them as intelligent it may have just been seeping into this show. he was at least as intelligent as ghost. one dragon was stated to be so linked to her rider that she "rose suddenly w...

I actually really like Sioux Nation. I didn't realize he was so attractive.

Re: TV Discussion Thread

part of me is jealous of the ppl who thoroughly enjoyed this season, because the standard i came to expect, i flat out didn't see. the only way i can keep from turning this into an ugly argument is to stop posting everything that, from a writing stand point, was just complete garbage. it's beyond a ...

Re: TV Discussion Thread

tl;dr - the GoT ending as a summary is perfectly fine. the GoT ending's details are a hot dumpster fire. it has nothing to do with what i want not happening making it terrible. here's another example; cersei dies: good cersei dies, killed by a crumbling tower that she and jaime both didn't stop to ...

Re: Take Charge Lady

I'm angry...because IMHO it's disrespecting a very good racehorse and a great broodmare to NOT make a big deal out of her death. She deserved a glowing obituary on all the racing sites and forums, maybe even a race replay video or two on TVG. :evil: grumblegrumblegrumblegrumblegrumble I also think ...

Re: Kentucky Derby : Do you agree with the stewards decision?

Thanks to those who shared the opinions and reasoning of Matt Carruthers and Andy Beyer -- good food for thought there. Do you treat 20-horse fields the same as 10-horse fields? in this case, field size isn't as important. what i mean is, he was clear in front, and 3 horses or 30 horses behind him,...

That head on really shows it.

Re: Kentucky Derby : Do you agree with the stewards decision?

The thing is, it doesn't matter if Country House was directly impacted. If Maximum Security impeded any of the other horses he had to be DQ'd, and the rest of the horses moved up in placing. then should we not have inquiries every year, since the start is chaos and we've seen loads of horses impact...
