Art Stapleton NFL writer Published 12:37 PM EDT Mar 14, 2019 Winter is apparently coming for the New York Giants. Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin is not pleased with Big Blue's decision to trade Odell Beckham Jr., and he expressed his frustration over the transaction on his blog in the aftermath of the stunning deal.

Between the nudity and the dragons, it can be easy to forget that the propulsions underlying Game of Thrones are altogether more, well, theological. Season-spanning plotlines have been defined by the rulings and followers of religions such as The Faith of the Seven (such violent sparrows!) and The Many-Faced God (such brutal training!).
