  1. It depends on what being prepared is though. Clinton's record is appalling because we know who she'll stand up for. She's for the military which has lead us into wars, she's for the big banks who crushed the global economy, she's for the prison complex which is inherently racist...so what exactly is her presidency going to do? Is it going to lead to less foreign intervention, more financial equality and an end to social injustice? Of course not, because the people who prop her up all want the opposite to that. Saudi Arabia fund terrorism, even according to Clinton's advisors, and yet she's in their back pocket and what about the big banks? As Bernie Sanders said, if you're being paid such astronomical fees for speeches, they must be damn good speeches so we should all get to see them...but she won't, because she wants to hide the fact she supports them and then when she gets into power, she'll do everything in her power to make them stronger. For all his faults, Trump is outside of this corrupt system. It doesn't mean he'll be a good leader but it means he's not guaranteed to be a bad one who'll continue to do exactly what those before him have done, whether it was Obama, Bush, Bill Clinton or whoever. They were all bought by the same system that is backing Hillary and we know she'll make the exact same mistakes.
  2. Trump's answer on that was fine I think. He didn't say he will do but rightly said that he would do if necessary, which is the whole point of having them. Corbyn said that he wouldn't use them under any circumstance, a far worse answer because it negates the fact that these weapons primarily serve as a deterrent. As for the question, Trump is an idiot who should be unelectable but Clinton represents the establishment, a corrupt alliance of the media, big business and nations who fund terrorism, so there's no good choice here. The good choice was Bernie Sanders, who got screwed over by the biased establishment, and people like him will continue to get screwed by those who are backing Clinton now. Trump winning will result in a short term mess and Clinton winning will be more negative in the long term, especially for the progressive movement inside the Democrat party which is what America needs.
  3. I know technique is more important than athleticism in fight sports but a guy who is as terribly unathletic as Punk was always going to struggle crossing over to a physical sport. You could see his lack of athleticism as a wrestler. He was slow, couldn't jump, wasn't strong, wasn't agile etc., so the chances of him being physically able to compete with young, fit athletes was always unlikely. Even if he was technically great, which he isn't, he just wasn't going to live with a guy like Gall, who was all over him like a rash.
  4. It's farcical that Lesnar isn't getting the same drug testing as everyone else. I don't know what the UFC's defence of this is but they might as well just openly admit he's been on steroids. The thing is though, even if he stops now, new research shows that the effect of drugs have a long lasting effect on the body so even if he passes tests at 200, so what? He's still getting the effect of it and the UFC and USADA are complicit in that, they don't give a fuck about preventing cheating. Hopefully Hunt wins but what if he loses? What if he loses badly and gets hurt? I like watching Lesnar fight and would like to see him win in other circumstances but the blatant actions of USADA and the UFC is a joke. Just forget the idea of fairness and let everyone juice like PRIDE in it's heyday.
  5. I'd prefer to stay in because I like the idea of a strong Europe and I think it'll be greatly beneficial in the long term. That being said, I do think there needs to be reform within the EU - particularly with fellow EU countries taking in far too many refugees that are then able to move wherever they want - but overall I'd prefer we stay in and keep things as they are.
  6. I think Ryback is great and wasn't full utilised after his main event push. He was genuinely over for a while, he always had good matches and, yeah, his character was limited but he still made the most of the chance he had. He's excellent in squash matches too and instead of that weird bully gimmick, he should have just been a dominant nasty, basic heel. I still think they could do something with him if they revamped his character, maybe gave him a manager or something.
  7. Sad news. I saw a video of her a week or so ago, talking about the Piper funeral and incident with Triple H and I was pleased when she said they'd talked and hoped she'd get into the HOF at some point. Her life went off the rails but she was a good performer and did a lot for womens wrestling. She played a pretty big part in the success of the Attitude Era I think.
  8. Brilliant to see the Cardinals get spanked by the Seahawks. I think a third Superbowl spot is on. Wilson is playing excellent and even without Lynch and Rawls, Wilson's passing ability is proving very difficult to stop.
  9. Wow. I didn't think for a moment that Fury would win this. What a strange feeling this is, I can't believe it.

    UFC 193

    I know this has already been mentioned in another thread but I thought it'd be worthy of it's own topic. What did people think of the main event? Does it go down as the biggest shock in UFC history? I'm glad Rousey lost. She has an awful attitude and really isn't good enough to back up some of the nonsense she comes out with. Her striking ability is really poor, she has no concept of defence and I'm glad to see someone exploit those flaws. Thoughts on the show/main event?
  11. ___________Schmeichel Neville - Ferdinand - Terry - Cole ____________Keane _________Scholes - Gerrard __Ronaldo ---- Suarez ----- Henry That's a difficult team to pick. The only obvious choices in that team are Cole, Ronaldo and Henry I think. I could easily see an argument for Van Nistelrooy, Shearer, Aguero, Lampard, Giggs, Adams, Viera, Vidic and others but I'm happy with that team.
  12. Mayweather/Paqcquiao officially did 4.6m PPV buys, at $100, in America alone. I thought it'd get around 2m buys but what an enormous success that was. Incredible number.
  13. I loved the first episode too. The final scene with the horn blowing was brilliant and ti'll be interesting to see who was behind it. I know the obvious choice is the Wolves but I think they'll appear later in the series and it'll be a less obvious choice. It's not perfect TV but it's enthralling and I'm glad it's back on.
  14. I don't think it's big enough to be just town hall 11, I think there'll be something to go along with it. I'd guess it'll be another feature, similar to when clan wars were added, but I've not got a clue what it'll be. I've hearn a rumour about clan tournaments but I don't think that'd be huge and it's probably just a nonsense rumour. Town hall 11 is very likely though, I think. I'd guess new troops and maybe new dark spells as well. ClashCon is big for Supercell so they won't want to disappoint with this reveal.
  15. Turning Ziggler heel is probably the only way to elevate him back to the position he had. It's not like he's flopped as a face but he's a much better heel and his future should be there.
