"He is the most overrated piece of crap in the league. He bitched and whined after he got his ass beaten in New England last year, so the NFL changed the rules. Then he got his ass beaten in New England again. Every year he's the top MVP candidate. Every year he's supposed to be the best. Every year he's going to carry the Colts to the Super Bowl. And every single year he goes to New England and gets his ass beaten. And his brother's a whiny little bitch." -A friend of mine, on Peyton Manning
I have been reading this forum for over four years now. This is pretty much THE place I go to for movie reviews, political and sport news, and so on. There is a diverse enough spectrum of opinions here to help me form my own opinion on things. So this is pretty much the only site I visit more then ten times a day.
I think it's pretty stupid. Having said that, I sure like posting in these threads. I never really read them, though, because I don't care about you and your opinions. I might make an exception for the sandwich thread, though.
