    Lanky, I've got a question. I haven't seen District 9 but have been considering it-was there anything in particular that made the movie suck in your estimation? I'd be interested in your observations.

    I'm giving it a 2-4 year window. Looking for improvement in all areas. Redskins, you're on the clock.
