I bought it for XBox 1, haven't played a ton but so far so good.  Kinda feels like GTA with how you can drive the Batmobile everywhere.

Gonna take more than unverified accusations from an internet poster to upset me, I am amused at how much you are seeking credibility though.  Why you're throwing these accusatins out in this thread is still a mystery though, kind of a troll move imho.  Good for you if you know someone, you're not the only one.  Like I said above, for your sake I hope she's hot.

Comment 30 Jun 2015

Thats great, hopefully she's hot for your sake.  Doesn't change the fact that the accusations don't belong in a thread about Zeke and a car his parents bought for him.  Unless you're insinuating his mom is lying, which would be a pretty bold stance unless the girl you're referring to is Dawn Elliott.

Comment 30 Jun 2015

Yeah, downright perplexing why fans on an OSU board wouldn't like accusations hurled at the Buckeyes backed up with "I know a guy"......

Comment 23 Jun 2015

The whole reason gambling is prohibitted is because 1 team actually threw the WS, had that never happend is gambling the Cardinal Sin in baseball its become?  Likely not given no other professional sport seems to focus on it like the MLB does.  The ironic part is, these major sports now endorse gambling and make huge profits off of it every year.  That doubt I seem to be mentioning is a pretty weak scapegoat too, especially when referring to him as a player.  Guy put up HoF numbers but we're to believe he was tanking games?  I guess in a world where Joe jackson is accused of throwing the WS that makes sense.

Permanently ineligible should exclude him from the HoF how exactly?  Enshrining his deserving career in Cooperstown doesn't allow him back in MLB, it rightfully recognizes that he's one of the greatest to ever play the game.

Comment 23 Jun 2015

You could say that, but there's absolutely no proof its true.  Speculate all you want, but until there is actual evidence of him actually doing that this thing is being blown completely out of proportion.  He gambled, he got fired.  Should be enough yet here we are almost 20 years later condemning him for something no one can prove he did.  Kinda petty if you ask me.

Comment 23 Jun 2015

You're assuming none of the guys already inducted used steroids, not an assumption I would make given the culture of MLB in the 80's and 90's.

Pete was fired and never managed in MLB again for his "crimes", pretty fair punishment.  None of what he did enhanced his performance though, so nullifying his HoF career by not letting him in the Hall is petty and stupid.  There's been no proof that his actions effected the integrity of the game in a negative way, just speculation.  People want to hate on the guy for gambling thats thier issue, but MLB villifying him after making hundreds of millions of dollars pimping Sosa and McGwire and Bonds is completely hypocritical.

Comment 22 Jun 2015

Which brings me back to my original point, show me he threw games or let him in the Hall.  Given the state MLB is currently in and the figures they've promoted over the last 20 years, the continued crucification of Pete Rose looks petty.  Barry Bonds enhanced his way to a World Series but somehow the fact that Pete Rose may or may not have had an effect of the game with his gambling is looked at as worse?  Like I said, hypocrisy at its finest.

Comment 22 Jun 2015

So he's the devil because betting could have made him try to win more?  Pretty weak argument.  If his betting gave him more motivation to lead his team to victories, I see no issue with that.  Its the same as a manager having incentives in their contracts, extra motivation for personal gains.  Is there proof that his actions were detrimental to the Reds?  I've yet to see any.  Gambling is the big sin in baseball because of the Black Sox throwing the series, seems thats what baseball was afraid of when they put the rule in place.  So if Rose didn't throw games, and the biggest argument against him is that he could have used all means available to WIN then there's really no case to keep him out of the HoF.  Just some silly crusade by a bunch of people screaming about the "integrity of the game".  These same people were counting money and loving the state of MLB in the late 90's.  Hypocrisy at its finest.

Comment 22 Jun 2015

We wouldn't be trading them any draft picks, we'd be trading them a player they dictate we take with said draft pick.

I highly doubt Miami taking on that player's salary would be detrimental in any way to them.  Losing Wade for nothing, on the other hand, doesn't help their long term future.  It all hinges on what Wade wants to do.  If he wants to go to LA, then he opts out.  If he wants to come to Cleveland and win titles, he maneuvers a trade here.  If he wants to go home to Chicago, he can pull the strings for that to happen too.  We have just as legit a chance to get him as the others though.

Comment 22 Jun 2015

We have plenty to offer the Heat given they have absolutely no leverage.  If Wade wants to leave, they'd be dumb not to take a a player with our 1st in return.  If Wade decides he wants to come to Cleveland then thats likely what will happen too, unless Riley lets spite stop him from acquiring a 1st round talent which would be kind of funny to watch.

Comment 22 Jun 2015

We'd have to spend a ton more to pay a tax bill that high, no?  If we keep everyone at status quo, we sit at about $102M which comes with a LT bill of $46.5M based on what I've read.  Factor in raises for Lebron, Love, Thompson and Shumpert and that bill def goes up, but you think it increases over 200%?  Are there other escalators in the CBA that come into play?  At the end of the day I guess it matters little, Quicken Loans by itself has revenues around $4B so Gilbert won't sweat it.

As for the other teams, sure they could get in the mix but Wade will be able to dictate where he goes.  I don't see him wanting to go to the Bucks, he'll want to go to an established contender.  Chicago would def fit that thinking, and he's from there, but him and Butler play the same position.  Not sure how well that would mesh.

Comment 22 Jun 2015

Gilbert has a net worth of $4.8B, paying $60M in Luxury Tax in 2016 is not gonna concern him.  It may make his overall bottom line smaller in the short term, but the long term gains he'll get from a Title will eclipse it by ALOT.

As for Wade, all he has to do is Opt In to the $16.1M and the Cavs can get him.  Haywood + Whatever player they want with our 1st would get it done, the Heat would be dumb not to do it given they'd lose him for nothing otherwise.

Comment 22 Jun 2015

Paterno themed?  Does that mean if you drink too much you will shit yourself and run across the south endzone?  Honestly the first memory that comes to mind any time someone mentions that PoS.

Comment 17 Jun 2015

Well 90% of NBA players, if not more, qualify for that statement given your criteria.  Steph Curry can never stay healthy given your parameters.  Insinuating that Kevin Love can't be counted on because of health concerns is certainly an opinion you're entitled to have, but I'd love to see a list of players you do actually count on to stay healthy then.

Comment 17 Jun 2015

Given that Kevin Love has only missed signifigant time once in his career and his injury this year was due to a completely dirty play, saying he can't stay healthy is not a very intelligent comment.
