I swear in the video I saw on NHL on the Fly it said the Maple Leaf had the power of mass manipulation. Someone please correct me if I read it wrong, but that s*** is funny.

This is about as dumb as the FoxTracks glowing puck, or the robots Fox uses with the NFL.

How great would it be if the crowd is quiet when they introduce the Guardians? I'm sure some kids would cheer but if it was really tepid? It deserves it.

I really don't understand all the hate for this. I've honestly thought they looked pretty cool. And no, I'm not 12.

It doesn't have to make sense. It's fun.

No, with all due respect, this whole concept is much, much dumber.

Ten years from now we will look back on this project....and we will lauuuugghhh...

I personally think this project is going to redefine "Failure" in the marketing world, and it's gonna be funny when it tanks.

To cover my ass, if it does miraculously do well, then humanity is doomed, and the end is near.


I don't think they will have to wait ten years to realize how bad this idea was...

Probably more like two weeks.

We're already realizing it right now.

Immovable, not immobile. The implication being that it can't be moved against its will.

I'm not as harsh on this as some others are (some of the guardians are really lame in design, but I think a few of them are kinda cool).

However, I think the Red Wing is totally ruined by the fact that his undercarriage looks like a busted segway.


If some bored artist wants to make me a signature, feel free to cut loose and do so.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.

Movies came first, man. And they are still better than the actual team.

Love the reference to the glow-puck....... hated that thing....

...but I like the Guardian Project. It is different.

I find it neat!

The Duck.

The Duck is one of the younger Guardians. Although he hails from a wealthy family and is a rebel with a trust fund, he has undergone Marine training and is as tough as nails. Calm in all situations, his relaxed attitude should not be mistaken for weakness because when the time to fight arises, few Guardians are more prepared than the Duck.
He wears a futuristic bio suit and helmet that allow him to breathe underwater for short periods of time. He also has "surf boots" on his feet that give him the ability to glide on the surface of water at incredible speeds. He has wings, but they allow him to fly in short bursts and at low altitudes only. He's constantly developing new technology that allows him to take advantage of his aquatic abilities. He also has several surfboards for different conditions and adventures, including his ever-present "Fish" board; a retro surfboard that allows him to cut through waves and at an incredible speed and make amazing maneuvers. He's a bit of a showoff, but with skills like his, you would be to.

"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,

is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.

And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!

When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.

And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!

And they call him Sandy Claws!
