(25/03/2017 - 12:13 PM) Green Bastard  -  I will also make that bot group virtually untouchable, in other words attacking them would most likely end in your death and not much to gain other than a loss of frags, money and a tombstone! lmao
(25/03/2017 - 12:10 PM) Green Bastard  -  I want to create a bot for you and anyone else that achieves the feat of making it past 15K. I will call those bots the BOF = Battlers Of Fame. All I need is a special avatar and I will set it up. You can continue to battle from where you are at or start at decent minimum level if you choose to do so. This goes for anyone who reaches the top of the heap and your bot level will be equal across the board. Sound good?
(25/03/2017 - 12:29 AM) Green Bastard  -  Simply amazing my friend. Top of the food chain and all the other cliches. Simply awesome! party-drinkers1.gif

(23/03/2017 - 12:59 AM) Green Bastard  -  When you get to the top of the mountain, you can either stay and enjoy the view or ski down at your own leisure.
(21/03/2017 - 09:09 AM) C-Rida  -  Hope you have an awesome day, and remember... Be like water my friend :)

A Canadian sports card company is releasing a series of blood-spattered hockey cards celebrating the game's enforcers.

The cards, from In The Game trading cards, feature many of the NHL's best-known bruisers over the years, such as Marty McSorley, Dave Manson, Jimmy Mann, Tie Domi and Dave Schultz.

But there is also a card for Wade Belak, one of three former tough guys who died within four months of one another in 2011.

The deaths thrust the role of the enforcer into the spotlight because of the addictions and depression many apparently suffer and the theory that brain trauma from concussions is responsible.

Belak was found dead in a Toronto hotel on Aug. 31, an apparent suicide, sources have told CBC News.

Fellow NHL fighters Derek Boogaard and Rick Rypien were found dead in their homes in May and August, respectively.

Boogaard died of an accidental overdose from a combination of too many painkillers and alcohol. Rypien, who had sought help in the past for depression, committed suicide.

The hockey card set also includes Bob Probert, an enforcer who retired in 2002 after 16 NHL seasons and died in July 2010 of a heart attack.

A Boston University neurosurgeon who studied the brains of deceased athletes found Probert had chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a degenerative brain disease caused by blunt impact to the head.

The neurosurgeon, Robert Cantu, said symptoms of CTE include memory loss, impulsiveness, mood swings and addiction.

Earlier this month, it was revealed that Boogaard suffered the same disease.

Brian Price, owner of In The Game trading cards in Ontario, said he's trying to capture the history of hockey and feels the enforcer series "is bringing attention to the players who do the work in the trenches."

"I'm not glorifying violence. I'm paying tribute to the players," he added.

In addition to cards about the individual enforcers, there are subsets on famous bloody battles, instigators and record holders.

Many of the cards are decked out with fake blood spatter and bandages, while others include pieces of fabric from game-worn jerseys. nhl_fight.gif
