Need help understanding baseball rookie contracts - LSUtoOmaha
I understand a large component of a coveted rookie contract is upfront money. Take Kevin Gausman last year for instance, whose contract "includes a 4.32 signing bonus." So as I understand it, Gausman gets $4.32 million unless he violates terms of the agreement. Is this depreciated over the lengt...

Challenging a call in tennis question - LSUtoOmaha
If I am not mistaken, in the Wimbeldon final Sunday, Federer served a ball that was ruled out by the official. Federer challenged, however, and the camera showed the ball was in. Federer got credited with an ace. Are all serve challenges awarded an ace in this scenario? What if the ball went in ...

Why do payment slots exist for each position in the NFL? - LSUtoOmaha
I realize this is an obvious question for most. Why can't a team just have a salary cap and divide up the money how they want? Is this purely for franchise tag purposes?...

Roth IRA early distribution: Principal subject to 10% tax before 5 years? - LSUtoOmaha
I was told by my online broker that, if you take an early withdrawal of the principal in a Roth IRA, you are subject to a 10 percent penalty unless a certain time period elapsed. Is that correct? I checked the IRS website and saw the five-year amount listed. The internet opinions regarding this ...

Time to discuss the Monty Hall problem (strategy and game show) - LSUtoOmaha
[quote]The Monty Hall problem is a brain teaser, in the form of a probability puzzle (Gruber, Krauss and others), loosely based on the American television game show Let's Make a Deal and named after its original host, Monty Hall. The problem was originally posed in a letter by Steve Selvin to the Am...

Who is ready for some Bill Walton? - LSUtoOmaha

If someone tries to get into your car, can you hold them at gunpoint? - LSUtoOmaha
Say this is in Louisiana, and at the time you have reasonable suspicion to believe the person is getting into your car to steal it. Can you point a gun at them to make them leave or do you have to just yell and call the police about a hijacking? Two scenarios: 1. The car is parked and nobody ...

Do we have any TD posters born in the 2000s? - LSUtoOmaha
I joined this site when I was 14 and am 24 now, so I guess it is possible some people around here never even saw the 90s. Weird to think about. ...

Coaches voluntarily switching teams in Professional Sports - LSUtoOmaha
I was discussing this topic a few days ago with some friends, and we struggled to come up with good examples. I think the Red Sox manager was hired away from the Blue Jays last year, but other than that, I could not think of a coach who willingly left his pro team for another (Doc Rivers would not c...

Best items to flip/arbitrage on Craigslist, eBay, etc - LSUtoOmaha
The "turning 5k into 10k" thread got me thinking about this type of side venture. What opportunities have you explored in the past that involved purchasing items for the sole sake of selling them at a higher price, and by what means? Mine has been tickets (jumping quickly on high-end concerts/sp...

Have comments on ESPN.com gotten any better since the Facebook requirement? - LSUtoOmaha
I haven't read many articles recently, but I remember this being a topic of conversation for a while on here. I just read one about the Penn State President and others being charged with perjury, and they seemed more well thought out on that one. ...

Where does Mark O'Mara rank among criminal law attorneys? - LSUtoOmaha
O'Mara, Zimmerman's attorney, is the most impressive I have ever seen. First, he knows how to cross-examine a witness, making them look foolish, without being condescending in any way. He even spoke nicely of the state medical examiner, who was absolutely horrendous. I can't really think of a mi...

Is Jake Bugg famous throughout the States yet? - LSUtoOmaha
I heard about him a while back here in Nashville. Lightening 100, a local radio station, has a knack for picking up on future greats very early on. Anyways, I think this guy has one of those unique, universally appealing voices that will result in a spurt of celebrity pretty soon. [link=(htt...

Professional sports coaching salaries: guaranteed or buy-out clauses? - LSUtoOmaha
I was just wondering how this works in general, because it is seemingly rare you hear about non-collegiate coaching salaries. Will Brad Stevens, for example, get $22 million as long as he doesn't leave Boston on his own accord?...

Is it just me or were John Elway and his dad the biggest prissy a-holes around? Also, Ken O'Brien is hilarious and took it all in stride. Love his comment about cousins being Jets and how they were pissed they didn't take Marino. :lol:...

iPad remote access question - LSUtoOmaha
I was doing some research and found something called LogMeIn, which enables you to remote in to your desktop/laptop from your iPad device. Do any of you have experience with this?
