    I don't really think KC can really even try to make lemonade out of this one. That's five injuries this year alone with his knees, hamstrings, akles, ribs etc... all snuffing his appearances. He doesn't seem to come back/heal very quickly either. ChiFire knew he was fragile and dumped him for potential. KC needed something badly at the time but we've been playing without almost all year and somewhat producing anyway. Josh's appearances after injuries are laughable at best at this point. Next year I'm expecting much the same if we don't trade him. At this point you can't count on a full season from him. ChiFire got the better deal in my opinion maybe equal this year but the next few will start to show a difference in the value of the two to their respective teams.

    I'd assume that if he were still here he'd try and blame the rib breaking on the turf, right?

    Thanks Mike. But I think Peter probably knew what to do before you started sending your e-mails. :)

    The residual effect of the turf, most definately.

    Josh "McHead II: The Fracturing" Wolff for Super Nate Jaqua?

    Best trade ever, man.

    Well, "Where's" Rodrigo Faria for Bail Out Bob Bradley, which turned into Jonathan Bolaños.

    Oh, and we got a first round pick next year too, so it remains to be seen.

    But replacing B.O.B. with The Chan was the best move since replacing Tom Selleck with Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones.

    Or maybe bringing Ante back as the best return since bringing Sean Connery back as Bond.

    Sean Connery never came back. One he left, he left. Unless you mean the one-film George Lazenby layover...

    "Sean Connery never came back. One he left, he left."

    You're forgetting "Never Say Never Again" (1983) which was 12 years after "Diamonds Are Forever" (1971). Roger Moore appeared in 5 Bond movies between 1971 and 1983.

    Both "Octopvssy" (Moore) and "Never Say Never Again" (Connery) were released in 1983.


    Is Josh Wolff even considered for National Team duty anymore?

    I thought someone might try to use that.

    "Never Say Never Again" wasn't really a legitimate Bond film. It was made by Warner Brothers, not MGM/UA, and was really just a remake/retread of "Thunderball" anyway. Connery owned the script as part of his original Bond contract, and there was quite the legal battle over whether Connery owned the image rights to the character of James Bond.

    Wow. I didn't have to look any of that up, and I feel more like an idiot as a result.

    I believe he is considered.

    Considered a great figure in the past that is.

    "Casino Royale". With Woody Allen as "Jimmy Bond".

    Also not really an official Bond movie. But hilarious.

    Some may disagree with me, but Lazenby rocks. OHMSS has got to be one of the most entertaining Bond movies made.

    Suddenly this thread has become an Off-Topic Bond discussion.

    But what about Diamonds are Forever? I think that's what CUS was referring to. That was after On Her Majesty's Secret Service, aka the Lazenby film.

    And it was excellent. Best fight scenes ever in a Bond flick.

    Best cheeky lines as well. The chicken phobia girl is a riot. What about that unPC dinner scene at Piz Gloria? They can't get away with stuff like that anymore. Love it!!!

    And we can't forget the lovely Diana Rigg in the flick. Pure class.

    Incorrect. The title license for "Casino Royale" was sold before the main license was acquired by Broccoli et al.

    Just because it wasn't made for years, and had very little to do with the Warner line of films doesn't mean that it isn't "official".

    BTW, if you get that DVD, then you also get the made for tv movie of Casino Royale from the late 50s/early 60s. Very good, for what it was, more a live tele theater thing.

    Maybe i'm a big softie or something , but I really do feel bad for Josh, he just can't get a break ( that's not some bone) He has all the skills, but he just can't hold up. That sucks. I wish him well.

    On a Bond note:
    1) It is never geeky to discuss Bond films. They are "guy movie" masterpieces...along with Sergio Leone films :)

    2) OHMSS rocks.

    3) The books are sooooo good. If ya like the movies, read the books. They add so much to the inner workings of 007s mind. You can pick these books up for nickels at garage sales andd thrift stores. I love 'em!
