| O-T Lounge|| TV industry/legal question regarding the Duck Dynasty "punishment" - Chair on 12/20/13 at 8:55 am|
How can A&E enforce their ban on the guy that they don't want on the show? They film the show at his house and at the houses of his family members, right?
Can they tell him he can't be home while they are filming or that he can't be at his family members' houses while they are filming?...

Just a really smart/veteran play. He didn't celebrate or stare down at the receiver. He knocked him out of the play, then jumped right back into it looking to help somewhere else. This is one of those things t...
| O-T Lounge|| How long before people do xmas decoarations/music before Halloween? - Chair on 11/25/13 at 8:11 am|
It's not even Thanksgiving yet, and people have already put out christmas decoarations. There is also christmas music on some radio stations. Can people just not wait until Thanksgiving? I'm not much of a fan of Thanksgiving, and I really like the christmas season, but why not just wait? ...
| Pelicans Talk|| This was very promising, but Monty is still here.... - Chair on 11/16/13 at 9:46 pm|
This may be what Monty and Dell envisioned during the offseason. Team looked great. They dominated a team they should have.
But I'm still bothered by Monty's inability to adjust to life without Ryno.
If he needs this lineup to be successful, what happens when one of our starters gets hurt? ...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Boykin, Shorts, and Vereen - what should I do? - Chair on 11/16/13 at 4:48 pm|
Have to fill a WR spot and my flex.
They may not make a decision on Vereen until Monday, but I have to decide tomorrow if I am going to leave the spot open for him.
I'm worried about Shorts going against Peterson, even though the Jags will probably be playing from behind. Boykin has potential...
| Pelicans Talk|| Is this the best tank disguise in the history of sports? - Chair on 11/16/13 at 12:33 am|
Stern halts the trade because we need to keep the team (sort of spearheading the "win now" idea)
Benson buys; big dollars coming in
New players coming into New Orleans all around, setting up a "new offense" that is innovative and prepped to make big times moves
Number 1 pick a year or so ag...

I've never been involved in an auction draft. I am in charge of my league and we have always just done the standard snake style draft. I am thinking of maybe tossing out the idea to the people in it too see what they think.
For anyone that does one, what do you think? ...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Sooooooooo, Manziel to the Saints to learn from Drew? - Chair on 11/15/13 at 7:33 am|
Drew seems to like his abilities and think he can play at the next level. There are a good amount of QBs in the draft. Maybe teams shy away from taking him so early, and the Saints snag him at the end of the first round??...
| Pelicans Talk|| Does the staff not realize that Ryno is out, like we do? - Chair on 11/13/13 at 8:00 am|
I keep seeing a lot of people chalking the below-average start to really just one thing: Anderson being hurt. So, that's it? We have all these stars on the team, but one great shooter/average all around player is the reason for the poor showing so far?
Does Monty think Anderson is actually in th...

| Pelicans Talk|| Next 2 weeks will tell a lot with 3 "playoff series" games - Chair on 11/6/13 at 9:18 pm|
The next two weeks will reveal a lot about the TEAM and about MONTY. The schedule is nice because it well directly help to see how both coach amd team adjust to playing the same team in a short span. Obviously it's not a 5 or 7 game series against one team in the playoffs, but its similar. You have:...

| Tiger Rant|| Why can't we ever get a Jameis Winston? - Chair on 11/2/13 at 9:37 pm|
Not sure in spelling.
Do we get them and just keep them shackled and stunt their development?
Do we not try? Are we just unaware?

People sure are talking about the team, albeit via the mascot. It can't hurt to have some national exposure. I've seen several articles written about the mascot.

Bad move on my part. Right out of college, got a job where basically I acted as a self employed consultant and they didn't take out taxes. I never did file. I'd like to get a jump on this now. Where do I start? Should I get a CPA firm to aid? Can I contact the IRS and do it myself?
Also, the nex...
| O-T Lounge|| Anyone a member of Gravier St Social? - Chair on 10/24/13 at 2:07 pm|
I'm getting emails for some "new hip club" in NOLA called Gravier Street Social. You basically pay an annual fee to be a member at a bar. And I think you have to buy drinks after that. The Social offers you relax, work, socialize, etc. but more importantly it gives you "thinking time." And don't for...

I had some really big bust picks this year. It seems like a lot of the teams in our league are like that, jsut not to the extent of my team. I usually do a good bit of research before the draft, but for whatever reason, didn't put much time into this year.
What is your strategy, if you have ever ...

The only thing worse, is the people that post the articles and think the stories are true.........

There are surely some behinds the scenes stuff that goes on at restaurants and bars that the general, non-industry public is not aware of. One of Anthony Bourdain's books discusses a lot of the behind the scenes stuff.
I worked at a pretty nice restaurant in college. The nightly specials was nor...
