This article just came up on CNBC, but the origins were from February of this year, so it may be germans. Either way, I think the board will appreciate the insight: [link=(http://awealthofcommonsense.com/worlds-worst-market-timer/)]LINK[/link] [quote]Meet Bob. Bob is the world’s worst mark...

I was taking a look at some of the preseason polls and I couldn't help but notice the lack of experience that most teams will have at the QB position. Obviously LSU's tribulations are well documented, but it will be a concern at most top programs this year. Using the preseason Coaches Poll, I've bol...View Topic - Replies (4)

I often run into clients who have no faith in the US government, yet they will not entertain any investment that lacks FDIC insurance. How important is it to you? Would you have any concerns going over your limit with a bank? Do you "price" the insurance in to the risk/reward analysis of your in...

Is there any way the Cavs win another game with less than 30 shots from LeBron? I just don't see it. Let me be clear, 30+ shots don't guarantee a win for Cleveland by any means, but I simply don't see another strategy that gives them any chance. ...View Topic - Replies (12)

Obviously there are some variables that can effect things, and it isn't an exact science converting times to lengths, but using the 6 lengths per second rule of thumb, Secretariat would have beaten American Pharoah by 16 lengths (2.65 seconds).

This seems absurd on the surface, but it really isn't that much of a stretch. Drew Brees, Tom Brady, Peyton Manning will all be out of the league. Roethlisberger, Rivers, and Romo will probably be out as well. It is safe to assume that Rodgers and Luck will be Top 5 QBs in 2020, but then w...View Topic - Replies (17)

To my knowledge, the NBA is the only professional league that stipulates teams are subject to a particular max contract for a player. Why? The decision to have a salary cap is another story all together, but I simply don't understand the draw of a max contract. It may prop up the salaries of tie...View Topic - Replies (7)

Obviously the 1st pick is better than the 2nd pick, but as a GM, which position would you rather find yourself? From a self-preservation perspective, the Lakers GM is in the best spot IMO - you simply take the big that the T-wolves pass up. I view this draft like I did the 2007 draft with Greg O...View Topic - Replies (7)

shite is just tough to watch. Both teams embellish the hell out of ticky-tack fouls and whine from tip-off to final whistle. As bad as the Bulls-Cavs series was on offense, it was considerably more entertaining to me than the 60+ FTA that occur in this LAC-HOU series. Hopefully the Clippers c...View Topic - Replies (2)

This season has been quite an anomaly for Harper thus far, and his advanced metrics seem counterintuitive. I know we've got a few Nationals fans on the board and others who've seen him play, so I'm wondering if there is something that is happening on the field that would explain his statistics. ...View Topic - Replies (11)

I understand Floyd won more rounds, but that seems like a dumb way to decide the champion. The 4th and 6th rounds for Manny were better than anything Mayweather put together IMO. Seems disingenuous to score those rounds 10-9 as if they were just as close as the 8th and 9th rounds. ...View Topic - Replies (15)
