    fair enough. I used to love watching emmit smith during the cows golden era. Herschel walker is another favourite. espn doco about him shows what a freak of nature he is.

    Saw that Hershel walker one, amazing doc actually, very different kind of oerson, still does his 2000 sit-ups a day ha.

    Emmit smith was great, he killed my bills in those superbowl a, however he arguably had the greatest online of all time blocking for him.

    IMO the greatest running backs ever are Barry sanders and Walter Payton

    It was all a sham, tho. I remember seeing a documentary years later where OJ was caught on tape asking a cop to get him heroin.

    I remember watching an NFL Films doco on this game.
    I think it was in the Greatest Games docos. Brilliant stuff. Loved all the fans coming back after leaving at half time.

    The NFL knows how to put a doco together. The NRL should take some pointers.

    At least we'd be used to it.


    Agreed.

    There docs are sick, doesn't matter which team either. IMO the missing rings docs are the best, lived the Vikings 98 one

    Sex, Frank?

    Uh...not right now, Ed.

    I'm not ashamed to list that movie/series as my favourite whenever the question comes up.

    I've got the one about the history of Candlestick Park saved on my IQ.
    Probably watch it tomorrow.
    It was a run-down old joint, but I still loved it.

    :lol: Poor Al, he never did get his face out there.

    Ed: It's disgusting the way they splash this stuff all over the newspapers! What is journalism coming to? You're laying on top of the queen with her legs wrapped around you. And they call that news. They can't kick you off the force, Frank! It's just not fair!

    Frank: I know, Ed. Life isn't always fair. Just think. The next time I shoot someone, I could be arrested.

    Haha, love it.

    I do hold Flying High in higher esteem though. For me that's the funniest movie ever made.

    Shirley you jest? :D

    Actually, it's not a popular opinion but I prefer Flying High II to the original (and I'm a huge Nielsen fan). But I've seen them all, multiple times. Naked Gun, Flying High and Police Squad. For me, the Naked Gun series was the most polished, and I believe Nielsen himself nominated that as the best movie he'd ever been in. But it's all the same people: Zucker, Abrahams, Zucker.

    they also did top secret, which I thought was just as funny.

    Police Squad didn't get a good enough run.
    Cancelled way too soon.

    Good point. I've only seen that a couple of times. When I see the name I think of that stupid movie Charlie Sheen was in. It had a Zucker or something but it was rubbish. Gonna download that.

    Yeah. But the Naked Gun series is basically all the same jokes but they had time to perfect them. Still, wish there was more of them. I may even go watch that tonight.

    The toilet scene in the first one is possibly one if the greatest scenes in movie history- it was like watching myself, instead I blow arse normally at the start.
