| Music Board|| Trucks or Bonamassa. Who do you pick? - adono on 8/26/14 at 6:32 pm|
The wiz kids of the guitar world. Both of these guys were playing with the biggest names in the music industry before they were in high school and the their musical range shows it.
I like them both but have to go with Bonamassa because he is a dominant personality on the stage and also sings (he ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Who gets cut or put on IR? - adono on 8/25/14 at 1:39 pm|
Teams have until tomorrow afternoon to trim down to 75. I believe there are 87 players still on the roster. So, who is likely to be handing the playbook over or headed to a 1 year vacation on the IR?
(Just looked at the roster again and the first cut isn't too hard. The cut from 75 to 53 is going...

Both dove for a loose ball and Cousins is hurt. AD is OK.

It's only a preseason game, but I'm excited the B & G are back on the field. Very interested to see how the young guys react to a real game environment.
Which players are you going to focus on?
For me, it the WRs. Every snap will be important to the guys on the bubble....
| Movie/TV Board|| The Last Ship was renewed by TNT - adono on 7/21/14 at 12:15 pm|
It was announced that TNT is renewing a few of the series presently airing and The Last Ship is one of them. This fact is a true barometer of the slim pickings on cable this summer. Worse yet, they're calling it a "blockbuster"...that's just sad.
Last night's episode was a wasteful consumption of...

| Pelicans Talk|| Almost 70% of cap on Guards. Is that normal? - adono on 6/26/14 at 1:59 pm|
Unless some changes are made (like getting rid of EG), our cap will be eaten up with salaries to Guards...70% to be exact. That just doesn't look normal to me. I can't think of another team that is built like this.
Another point, the site "HoopsHype" has our cap commitments at $48.5M next year. I...
| Pelicans Talk|| Will Demps have complete authority? - adono on 6/17/14 at 2:08 am|
Considering the strange moves Demps has made and the salary cap hell we're in, I wonder just how much rope Benson will give him. You can bet that Loomis has found a trusted former NBA GM (hopefully not named Dumars) to get advice from.
The good news is that there's little to no money left for Del...
| Pelicans Talk|| When was the last time a team bought a 1st round pick? - adono on 5/28/14 at 9:03 pm|
I'll admit I'm not 100% on top of all of the NBA rules, but I do remember years ago that teams were buying picks. Can this this still be done? If so, what team and at what price would a top 10 in the first round pick cost?
Benson has made an estimated $220M profit on his investment in the very s...

There are a bunch of very savvy NBA fans on here who know the ins and outs. How do we get Gordon off the payroll with the least amount of damage.
What the hell are our options?
I want this guy off the team more than anything. I thought Baron Davis was bad but this guy just pisses me off to no en...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Was Cooks worth giving the 3rd pick? - adono on 5/9/14 at 8:11 am|
In a very deep WR draft, was it worth the price?
I have mixed feelings because we obviously don't have inside info on how the staff feels about the existing roster and the spots they feel they need to address. Maybe there really aren't that many spots available and losing the pick was no big deal.

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Possible trade partners for Bush. - adono on 4/5/14 at 9:59 pm|
After giving it a lot of thought, the best route to take with Bush is to match the Falcons' offer sheet and trade him. I don't blame him for looking for a starting position and it's not unexpected that Atlanta went after him (he originally signed with the Falcons as a UFA out of college), but the Sa...

Since there was much interest in DJax here; thought I'd post this. To be honest, I'm happy he didn't go to the Panthers; I would not want to face that guy twice a year.

I don't think there's a way in world we draft a QB in the 1st or 2nd round, but what about 3rd on?
I bring this up because of what the Texans coach (O'Brien)said this week:
