Ted Wells is a lucky guy - NFL investigator for DeflateGate - slackster
This lucky son of a bitch probably laughs at the NFL all the way to the bank. I find it hilarious that this guy has been retained to investigate a bullying scandal and a team deflating footballs. I should have been an attorney... [img]http://cdn.newsday.com/polopoly_fs/1.6457946.1384811837!/httpIm...

Net Unrealized Appreciation (NUA) question/suggestions for tax benefits - slackster
Let's say a client, 40 y/o, was terminated and has $100,000 worth of company stock in an ESOP. The cost basis for the stock is $50,000, so the client has $50,000 net unrealized appreciation in the stock. Let's also assume that the client needs to use $50,000 and he is in the 10% tax bracket. ...

Ryan Clark said he and Booger McFarland were turned down for DC/DL positions - slackster
He's on the Stephen A. Smith radio show right now and Booger is a co-host today with Dan Graza. He was asked about his plans for the upcoming year and he jokingly said that he asked for an interview for the DC opening last week but no one called him back. :lol: He said his first act as the DC wou...

OSU's win was the worst possible outcome for the BCS AND the 4-team playoff - slackster
I didn't think it was possible, but all it took was one year for the public to simultaneously shite on the BCS and the current playoff format. Nothing went right in the semi finals and the finals. An undefeated, reigning national champion was skull-dragged in one semi-final, and the #1 team in th...

Is it better or worse for baseball to keep Bonds/Clemens/Rose out of the Hot? - slackster
Many people bitch about how these guys cheated the game and/or broke unwritten rules and as such, baseball has kept them out of the HOF. However, I find that the public tends to take the opposite position. There seems to be growing support for these guys, and it is at the point where I believe i...

Oregon now vs. years past - what is the difference? - slackster
I've watch a decent amount of Oregon football over the past few years, and while I believe Mariotta is the best QB they've had during their run, their team is basically the same iteration that is has been over the last 10 or so years. However, this year they appear to be the favorite to win it all a...

The Playoffs have their first redeeming moment - Oregon wouldn't have been in - slackster
Under the old system, I'm pretty certain it would have been Bama vs FSU, and it would have been ugly. The Playoffs just had their first redeeming moment by giving Oregon a chance to skulldrag FSU. To the playoffs :bow:...

Did Baltimore cost JJ Watt the MVP? - slackster
I've been listening to the debate on sports radio and I've read most of threads on the MSB, and the biggest argument against Watt seems to be the fact that the Texans missed the playoffs. My question is two fold - if the Texans make the playoffs, does Watt win the MVP, and if so, should a Baltimore ...

The biggest overreactions and prediction fails of the 2014 NFL Regular Season? - slackster
The MSB is home to some of the most fickle fans in the country, and this season has proven that more than most. What were some of the biggest overreactions and/or worst predictions for the year? Saints will win the NFC Saints will win the NFC South Saints defense is for real Brady and the Patr...

Spinoff - Who is your 1st Team All-NBA list at this point, and who stays there? - slackster
Obviously it's early and it will change, but who do you have now and who do you believe will get replaced? G - Curry G - Harden F - LeBron F - Davis C - Gasol That team would be so incredible, even historically. I don't think people appreciate how talented the NBA is today. Just for suit...

Up and coming coaches who didn't pan out - slackster
The disdain for Paul Chryst got me thinking about some of the up and coming coaches who quickly fell out of flavor. It seems, more often than not, that the craze is often not warranted. What other coaches were you big on until things fell apart? :inb4Miles:...

Why isn't the triple option offense more popular in college/NFL? - slackster
I've always been told that the speed of defenses for elite colleges and the NFL are a problem for this type of offense, but the same was said about the spread option and it has been rather successful in the NFL and is rampant in college. In high school, undermanned teams with small offensive lin...

Official LHSAA Round 3 Scores and Updates - slackster
I didn't see anything other than the prediction thread so perhaps this will suffice for the discussion tonight. I'm at the CHSNI @ Newman game. Hopefully it will be a good one and I'll update as possible. I'll try to keep the OP updated with games of interest around the state as I see scores, mo...

Tell me a little bit about Isidore Newman School re: parking and seating - slackster
I'm in town for the holiday and I'm debating whether or not I should go to the Catholic NI game at Newman today. I've been told parking and seating is a nightmare, so I planned on being there for 5 pm. Unfortunately I was told that they wouldn't open the gate until 6. Is that true? Is there a mad ru...

So tonight will test the idea that an earlier announcement would have been wiser - slackster
The decision to announce the no true bill at 8pm has been widely criticized, but I'm of the opinion that an earlier announcement would have been even worse. Last night was largely unavoidable, and an earlier announcement could have brought danger to many more people, including kids that weren't yet ...

Should 11-1 Miss St be in the playoffs if Bama wins the SECW/SEC? - slackster
I ask this here because the MSB should give a less biased answer than the SEC Rant. If Mississippi State loses Saturday, but wins out other than that, and Alabama wins out, Alabama wins the SECW. Obviously Bama is in if they win out. Mississippi State would still have arguably the best resume i...
