Comic Character Football

I was asked to come up with a full 11 offense and defense football team comprised of comic book heroes and villains. I guess if I do it here, I can give some proper explanation for why each individual is where they are. I'm running the offense with a fullback, tight end, and two wide receivers... I'm running a 3-4 defense.


Offense:

Quarterback - Bullseye. I can't think of anyone more accurate in comics than Bullseye. Deathstroke, Deadshot and Deadpool would have made a little sense, but Bullseye is just the guy for the job!

Running Back - Green Lantern. Here's a guy with heart and no fear, knows how to take his time and when to attack...

Fullback - The Juggernaut. I can't think of anyone better suited than the unstoppable force to clear a lane for the RB.

LT - Thing. He's a rock, but he has some agility so he can slide and protect the blindside.

LG - Bizarro. LG has to be a guy who can maul people, and I can't think of many better suited than Kal-el's imperfect clone.

C - Hulk. There are a lot of characters who could fit the role of the center, but when you want someone to give you that push, Hulk is your choice.

RG - Thanos. Gotta put a real monster in at guard on the to help destroy the edge on the run.

RT - Bane. He's the best comic character to attack on the run and compliment The Juggernaut to lead the running back.

TE - Iron Man. The strength of the suit and the ability to provide a safety blanket for the QB makes Iron Man the best choice.

WR1 - Flash. You need some speed at WR and you might as well get the fastest out there.

WR2 - Captain America. Someone who plays with some finesse but also not afraid to get chippy and fight for extra yards.



Defense:

LE - Thor. You need muscle at the position and someone who can eat up some blockers. Thor gives you strength and size to help push the line of scrimmage backwards.

NT - Darkseid. The most destructive force in all of comics has no better place to fit than right at the most important position on the defense.

RE - Beast. You aren't going to find anyone better suited than Thor except for Beast, to help maul the O-Line and help free up the LB's.

LOLB - Wolverine. Who better to rush from the outside and chase down the QB than Logan?

ILB1 - Sinestro. He's a man who knows what courage AND fear can both accomplish. With HIS courage and ability to sense fear, Sinestro is the ideal middleman for the defense.

ILB2 - Luke Cage. There needs to be someone with heart and grit to help run the defense and clog up the holes. Luke Cage is willing to take on anyone that steps in his path, making him an easy selection at ILB.

ROLB - Atrocitus. This is an unstoppable force willing to take out ANYONE in his path to accomplish his goal to destroy.

LCB - Scarecrow. You need the WR to fear coming onto your island and the QB needs to fear throwing to your island.

FS - Superman. Nobody better to serve as the last line of defense than Kal-el.

SS - Batman. You need someone who can play the box, hit, and play with smarts.

RCB - Spiderman. There's no way you get torched down the field, so you put someone who can adjust to subtle movements in to contest the speedy receivers.

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

Mock Royal Rumble 2017

I do not have any insider knowledge about surprise entrants into the Royal Rumble. As of me writing this, I believe there are only 22 confirmed participants for the Rumble. I also do not have any insider information about the order of the entrants, or the winner. I am just putting together a mock I think makes sense + what I would personally like to see accomplished in the match. 1. Sami Zayn - Zayn will be the Iron Man in this year's Rumble, building onto his Daniel Bryan-esque push of late with Stephanie making his life more difficult than it has to be for no apparent reason. 2. Chris Jericho - Iron Man #2. I expect both of these guys to go the distance in this year's Rumble, and Jericho's as good as any for spurts of offense in a long match. 3. Big E - We have to add some size early to immediately slow down Zayn & Jericho. In recent years, the first 10 spots in the Rumble have entered and been eliminated quickly, and we haven't seen the ring fill up unt

Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016

Before we begin, these are strictly my opinion for what entertains me. I would love to hear anyone's opinion on my list, along with what their list is for the 2016 calendar year. I am not focusing strictly on the WWE, and this list will not be strictly singles matches. I also have not watched every match from every company, so if I'm missing something you believe is clear cut, there may be a chance that I did not see the match. Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016 2016 was a very incredible year for professional wrestling, in mainstream promotions like WWE and New Japan Pro Wrestling, to independent promotions like EVOLVE and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. British professional wrestling promotions Revolution Pro Wrestling and newly formed What Culture Pro Wrestling have been a refreshing spark in the European scene and have since seen prominence in WWE's Cruiserweight Classic (CWC) and upcoming United Kingdom Championship Tournament. See the list after the break.
