    Re: What if we find another inhabitable planet?

    It's the same length, but they only play Canadian Rules Football up there, meaning that the field is bigger, there are fewer downs, and every 3rd team has to be named the "Rough Riders"

    Re: What if we find another inhabitable planet?

    right. Similar to moving to a new country, but just a long way away. I guess I'm more questioning people's attachment to Earth, and whether the prospect of living on another planet is more enticing...

    Re: What if we find another inhabitable planet?

    We're assuming life is similar to living on Earth. Yes, they have 4G. Yes, they have government. The ecology is similar to Earth, so there's not really any "frontier" to speak of, save what you...

    What if we find another inhabitable planet?

    Let's say we found another inhabitable planet within, maybe 2 light years from Earth.
    Temperatures are roughly the same. Similar day/night cycle. Similar seasons. For all intents and purposes,...

    NFL: Re: *** Official NFL Off-season Thread ***

    Even without the off the field stuff, I thought Manziel had bust written all over him. Just watching his schoolyard junk style of play was enough to convince me of that. He's going to throw a lot...

    Re: ESPN and their star based reporting

    Well, that's my point, isn't it? They call themselves "The Learning Channel" but have sold any integrity they might have had down the river in favor of ratings.

    Re: ESPN and their star based reporting

    well put. In media, if it's a choice between ratings and integrity, ratings win every time, and integrity can get lost. That's why a show like Honey Boo Boo can be aired on a channel that still...

    Re: "Community" cancelled

    That's not the point I was making. Obviously, advertisers are going to stick with a more traditional, measurable method of tracking ratings for making advertising decisions. My only point is that...

    Re: ESPN and their star based reporting

    It's about ratings. In the case of Tiger, he's basically the only thing in the sport of golf that draws ratings. You do a story/highlight on Bubba Watson, and you're going to get your golf fans to...

    Re: "Community" cancelled

    modern ratings are a funny thing. Because of DVR, ratings are tracked differently than they used to be. Viewings only count toward the ratings if they're watched within the first 3 days of airing. ...

    I don't think these foreign players are actively entering their names in the draft. They don't register or anything like that. They're automatically eligible under CBA rules, so teams can draft any...
