Go see The Dark Knight (like you need me to tell you)

I’ve always been a Marvel comics guy, so I never got into Batman all that much. It was Spiderman, Fantastic Four, Iron Man, The Punisher, Captain America, etc. Superman?

  • Poll Result Analysis: RB Sleeper Candidate Targets August 12, 2014
    Over the last week, we posted a poll asking you which RB sleeper candidate was at the top of your targets list. The results varied throughout the week and Falcon rookie RB Devonta Freeman led most of the way, but things certainly changed after a full week of preseason games:                           As you can see, the final results put 49er rookie RB Carlo […]
