    If you don't like your steak rare or medium rare, then you really don't like steak. If you put steak sauce on your steak, then you're dead to me....
    I order my steaks medium well and even well done sometimes.

    How is that unpopular? They own them in book sells, movies and tv shows.

    However if you want a really unpopular opinion I'll give you this. DC Animated universe is exponentially better than the Marvel animated universe and its not even close.
    I think the "exponentially" wording is what's controversial, I think most believe there's a competition.

    I'm mean, apparently med rare steak isn't popular!

    Marvel does a great job of appealing to kids and the masses. Most won't admit that they have had their fair share of crappy movies.

    They just have more relatable stories/characters with greater layers and detail. X Men is like the perfect telling of every society and fear of what's different.

    Btw, I think it's ridiculous to say DC smashes Marvel animated universe. How is this argument even being made?

    Have you watched any of the DCU animated movies? They are not made for kids, they are made for adults, hell there is a sex scene in the suicide squad animated movie. Marvel, since Disney purchased them, makes their animated shows for pre teens and early teens. Look I am a life long marvelite and only ever purchased one series of DC books (way back in the day when Marv Wolfman and George Perez created the Teen Titans) but the animated story's Marvel tells are jokes. Now a few years ago prior to Disney the "Hulk vs. Thor and Hulk vs Wolverine" were top notch and there has never been a better animated series than Avengers Earth's mightiest hero's. But the moment Disney took over the animated series and movies all went to ****.

    I have had steak cooked in different ways. I do not agree with the typical "expert" that medium rare is how it should be cooked. I don't care for the sight of blood which is admittedly part of it. But I also don't think the taste of the meat suffers unless you get it well done. I do not care for steak that is burnt. Many places will cook it medium if you ask for it medium well. I would say I probably prefer medium or medium well. It still remains moist and the extra charring actually gives it additional taste. JMHO.

    Lance Stephenson is the second best PG in Pacer history, taking the ball out of the hands of both George Hill (who sulked in the corner) and former all-star PG Jeff Teague. Every time the chips are on the table, the ball is handed to the master. You and I know this.

    Fantasy football isn't that exciting. Just see who has a bye that week and sub them out. Grab a player off the waiver wire if it looks decent. You basically just follow the numbers. Rest is luck of who does/doesn't get injured. Some people talk about it constantly and overanalyze the crap out of it - usually those people don't even do well. It's mildly entertaining but some people act like it's a part time job...just weird to me.

    Recently I really enjoyed The Killing Joke, I'm just surprised at anyone saying Marvel cartoon universe can't compete with DC. The 90s X Men cartoons are just great television period.

    Tinsley would destroy Mark Jackson one-on-one or really in a game where both players were engaged. But I know what you are saying. Jackson delivered. Tinsley had a brain problem. But when he got it going he was really unstoppable. Jackson never approached that talent level.

    Oh without a doubt. Hell even the old 90's spiderman cartoon killed it. I'm just talking about the here and now.

    The killing joke btw, while well done was really a nostalgia piece that allowed Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy to get together one last time to reprise their famous roles. But seriously Justice League: War, Batman vs Robin, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract are all top notch films.

    I really liked the animated Dark Knight Returns movies from a few years back. Year One is also decent.

    Football in general isn't that exciting. It's too slow, the playoffs are too fluky, the injuries and CTE issues are huge, and playing only 1 day a week doesn't hold my interest.

    Lance takes this team from 28 wins to 35. That's not trolling. He only played 6 regular season games last year and they won 5 of them. Only lost to the eventual ECF champs. Lance is why the Pacers made the playoffs last year.

    The NFL is boring and peaked 3-4 years ago. CTE and the related rule changes, the obsession with replay, and the current political climate are killing the NFL.

    As I have indicated way too many times on this board, I don't really love football but most of my friends do so I'll watch it with them. This one guy I am friends with won't meet up in a bar to watch football because he's got like 3 TVs on in his house obsessively analyzing his fantasy teams. I try to tell him...at some point this becomes a part time job and isn't even fun.
