The Dark Forest / Re: The NFL Football topic

A coin flip should NOT decide who wins the game. Both defenses couldn't stop the other teams' offense. In my honest opinion, both offenses should get a chance to play in overtime unless the team that wins the coin toss throws a pick six on their opening possession in OT.

If it were me, I'd have a 10 or 15 minute OT. That would mean more football and enough opportunities for the teams to do something on offense. If the game is still tied at the end of OT, then do a field goal shootout. Have the kickers attempt 50 yard field goals. Keep playing rounds until one kicker misses and the other kicker is successful in the same round. I don't know how well that would work, but that's how I'd do it.

It really is BS how the Bills got hosed by bad OT rules. I'd honestly feel the same way if the shoe was on the other foot. It's 2022, you'd think the NFL would learn by now that both offenses should get a shot to play in OT (barring the aforementioned pick six scenario), especially in the playoffs.

And now the Packers are out. I was not expecting this at all. Their special teams let them down. Now to see what happens with Aaron Rodgers for next season (assuming he doesn't retire).

Bengals in the AFC title game. I never thought I'd live to see the day. As a Steelers fan, I feel dirty for saying this, but...If the Chiefs make it as well, then I'll be rooting for the Bengals. I'm already tired of Mahomes. The Bengals in the Super Bowl would be a nice change. If the Bills get in, then I'll be rooting for the Bills.

The Cowboys are such a disappointment year in and year out. I'm not really surprised that they lost the way they did.

I'm also not surprised that we're getting blown out by the Chiefs. I was honestly expecting this.

I'm predicting Chiefs vs. Packers because I'm sure that's what State Farm wants (their QBs are State Farm guys). :roll:

Also, I have to say I can't believe we got into the playoffs. The fact we even made it in the first place is amazing. We haven't really looked good all year, but we made it somehow.

I thought this was a 10 episode season, but we had a new episode tonight. Spoiler below:




























Of all rooms to cause the team trouble in the temple, it was the Steamy Hollows. The front runner kept making the same stupid mistake, stepping on the wrong button and wasting time having to do it all over again. That cost the team precious time and of course, the Queen's Armory caused problems again. One piece of armor fell off at the end and it had to be put back on. Horrible room is horrible. Oddly enough, the Pit of Despair had the artifact. That's a first. Sadly, time ran out as the second runner was on the ladder between the Queen's Armory and Dark Forest.

Last episode spoiler below for tonight's temple run...



















Yet another difficult temple run. The item was in the Crypt of the Heartless, the bottom room next to the Crystal Senote. This layout was set up in a way that the Green Monkeys had to enter EVERY room except one (the Room of the Lost Treasure, the center room below the Shrine of the Silver Monkey, would've been that room). That's ten rooms! That's crazy. The front runner was fast and got taken out of the temple at the Steamy Hollows. He gave his partner plenty of time to win, but not only was she pretty slow, but the Queen's Armory struck again. I think it killed at least 40 seconds. Pieces of armor kept falling off and because the second runner wasn't that tall, she struggled to get the headdress on at the end before time ran out.

If this show gets another season, I hope that the Queen's Armory goes away. That room is such a time killer and it's apparent that it's a pain to get each armor item onto the queen. The room doesn't even look that fun to go through. As a viewer, that looks like a tedious objective to complete. I say replace it with something else; something that isn't boring to watch and doesn't waste so much time.

It's sad that this season's finale ended in a loss and sadly, given the low viewership these episodes have gotten, I'm not that optimistic that this version will get another season. Hopefully I'm wrong.

Near day late edit: I completely forgot that there was a door from the Queen's Armory that leads to the Pit of Despair, so there was a chance the second runner could've avoided the Dark Forest if given the chance. That means this could've been another 9 room run, but that still would've been a lot.

Is it me or are these temple layouts insanely difficult? Even with the added minute to the clock, teams are still struggling to even reach the item. Some of the rooms being big time wasters like the Queen's Armory doesn't help.

Spoilers below. You know the drill...

















So it was Nick from Henry VIII and Josh from Empress Theodora that returned and they were on the same team, the Blue Barracudas. I thought all players in this episode were going to be ones that competed in the Nick version, so that was a little disappointing. What was more disappointing was Kirk Fogg's guest appearance. He was hiding in the Dark Forest during the temple run pretending to be the host and shaking the temple runners' hands as they were running through the temple. In this case, it was Nick and Josh. I thought Kirk would have a bigger role than this and it turns out him being in the Dark Forest briefly chatting with Nick and Josh may have cost them the grand prize. The team made it to the object, but fell a few seconds short of victory. I think the brief amount of time they stopped to be with Kirk cost them the win. If the producers were trying to prevent a win and save some money, they succeeded here.

Edit: Just wanted to throw it out there that I was happy to see Kirk again. It's just that I wish his role in this episode was better.

Watch one of the returning teams be John and Tia. :P

I'm happy to see that Kirk Fogg is making an appearance this Sunday and I'm also looking forward to seeing former contestants again, even if they didn't make it to the temple or if they made it to the temple and did poorly. Hopefully we get to see a flashback or two of each team or player from the Nick version.

About what happened in last night's temple run. It's kind of bothering me. Spoiler below:





















In the Nick version, whenever a contestant struggled to put the monkey together, Kirk Fogg would usually speak into his microphone to help them out and the contestant could easily hear him. In the CW version, Cristela Alonzo really isn't loud whenever a contestant is struggling with the monkey, as was the case with last night's episode. She wasn't loud at all and the guy couldn't hear her. I think it would've helped the guy out big time if he could hear her better. That doesn't excuse the poor attempt (seriously, you can walk in front of the monkey pedestal in this version to get a better look, as Tyler did last night), but I really think this version doesn't do a good enough job at having the host (and the second runner for that matter) be loud enough for the temple runner to hear if they're struggling in the temple. Maybe if Cristela had a mic like Kirk did, this wouldn't be a problem.

Spoiler below, read at your own risk:


















All those kids who struggled in the past to put the Silver Monkey together? You can feel a little better now after seeing tonight's attempt. That was awful. I think that guy took over a minute because the belly was on wrong. He pulled a Larry from Mysterious Manuscript. :roll:

Came in here to say that yesterday, I tested positive for covid-19. I didn't feel good a day or two before the test, but right now, I'm the worst I have felt. Covid is not pleasant to have.
