    Care to tell me how the quality has gone down? The couple of people getting sick doesn't change my opinion or mean they are in decline. People get sick at all restaurants.
    I couldn't care less about people getting sick (though numerous large-scale outbreaks is indicative of a larger issue. It's not just a few people.). I used to love Chipotle, but I think a couple things have changed significantly. The big thing for me is the quality and taste of the meat isn't nearly as good. This is the real killer for me. The steak is dry and seems like a much cheaper cut, and the barbacoa (my old favorite) just doesn't taste nearly as good. It's like they removed all the flavor from it. Also about 4 years ago the size of the meat portion was reduced significantly. While not a quality thing, it was still annoying. And last, but definitely not least, both Adobe and Moe's have actually gotten a bit better over the years. Chipotle meat taste to me now what Adobe meat did 8 years ago, and that is not meant to be flattering in any way.

    Edit: I tend to get on rants about things that **** me off over the years, and about four to five years ago the changes in Chipotle was one of them. Then they had the outbreaks and I got to act smug and say I told you so.

    Chipotle has always had poor tasting food relative to other options, but Moe's is the worst of all.

    It really all depends what kind of food you are used to eat, for example me been from south America I rate chipotle at the top because their flavors are very close to what I'm used to eat, I like Qdoba but their flavors are to Americanize for my liking, its the same thing with Tijuana Flats I went there once and I almost threw up, I think they have the worse tacos in the country but that place is always full for some reason

    Their steak has changed. This is just a fact. Everything else seems to be consistent. I'm a chicken guy, so I still really like Chipotle.

    NJPW has been doing very well the last two or three years.

    PWG is nice, but they still have that Indy feel.

    For as amazing as ECW and the attitude era were, they forever changed the way fans viewed pro wrestling.
    NJPW has been great yes. WWE unwatchable in its current state and it's a shame with the talent roster they have

    Jon Bender was never as injured as was made out to be. He just did not have the desire to play organized basketball.

    That was such a reach of a pick even if it was a pretty 'meh' draft, I don't remember him being that hyped up at all, especially for a highschool kid.

    Pinstripes were horrific.

    The best uniforms we had were the Clark Kellogg era.

    The WWE attitude era did not ate well at all. It capped the future potential of wrestling and was Springer-level trash TV.

    Definitely doesn't age well on rewatch.

    Oddly enough you can throw on WCW 95-up until late 99 or so and it's still real good.

    Wasn't that the 1999 draft? If so, I think that was a pretty good draft.

    Yep, it was 1999: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/1999_NBA_draf

    Come to think of it, I recall Bird saying in his book from around that time that they were going to take Lamar Odom if he had been there at 5. That's an interesting 'what if' for the Pacers.

    20 what? Chicken fingers? OK, maybe 20 assists, but he couldn't score 20 points whenever he wanted to save his life. No his talent was decent overall. He had great hands, great basketball instincts. But that was about it. His feet were slow, he couldn't shoot, no he wasn't nearly as good as many in this forum thought.
    When Tinsley wanted to score, he could score. He could shoot, he could drive, he could pull up.

    He was great in every way except his character.

    And we somehow managed to draft a bust in a relatively strong draft....

    In terms of intelligence and athleticism, Derrick McKey was the most talented Pacer ever.

    It's 50/50 that Myles regressed this season. I believe in him and hope I'm wrong, but I think it's slightly out of his hands.
