    ‘Premonize’ is my new favourite Frank term. I hope it transitions over to Film Junk.

    Ya’ll are so right about Tyrod — the Bills are nuts if they think they can do better. He doesn’t have a great “rating”, but if they calculated all QB runs as completed passes and added the yards together he’d show up a lot higher (and it would be a truer picture).

    I know souls were crushed and 2016s ruined because you didn’t get a chance to watch and review ‘Santa’s Slay’, especially with Goldberg’s triumphant comeback. Hopefully you’ll find an excuse to review it earlier than a year from now. :)

    Frank, just pledge your allegiance to Trump already! ;)

    Frank, how can you not understand why a missed call at the end of the game is more important than a missed call at the beginning of the game?

    The effects of a missed call at the beginning of the game can be overcome by the opposite team because there’s 2 or 3 more quarters for them to re-earn (for lack of a better term) the possession or points they were cheated out of. If you have a missed call (LeBrons OBVIOUS tech with 1:43 left) or even worse, two (KD getting tripped with less than 3 seconds left) and there’s no time for the offended team too overcome the effects of those missed calls the ref inherently change the outcome of the game for the worst and half your (the NBA) fanbase goes walking away feeling cheated. A missed call matters more at the end of the game than the beginning without question.

    and as a side tangent, the nba refs as a whole call ticky-tack shit in almost every single game so when they miss blatant calls in a tight game with under two minutes left it makes it even worse. It’s bullshit and the NBA needs to do something more to address it.

    (if this came off as hostile towards you I apologize, my hostility comes from an annoyance with the current product the NBA is pushing)

    Everyman (or woman) Olympics:
    I present to you a top contender for World’s Fastest Dishwasher:
    He looks like a professional though so he might not qualify.

    Your new Olympics can have “Fanfare For the Common Man” by Aaron Copland as the theme.
