re: Should I find another CPA? - Poodlebrain
If you provided the accountant with the Form 1098-E reporting the student loan interest, and the CPA neglected to include it on your tax return, then he should feel an obligation to correct his negligence. If he will not acknowledge his negligence and correct it for free, then you probably should s...

The NFL has an internal security operation that investigates people connected with the league. Their investigators are ex-law enforcement officers.

re: Why do you care about income inequality? - Poodlebrain
I care because some people want to make a political issue of it when it is not a political but an economic issue. I care that those people are either uninformed, or worse, using the issue in an attempt to aggrandize power....

If I Was La'el Collins... - Poodlebrain
I'd be happy no team drafted me, or offered me an undrafted free agent contract. It makes is easy to sue the NFL for anti-trust and/or RICO violations opening the possibility of triple damages. (Note: the NFL has lost anti-trust lawsuits in the past, most applicable to Collins the suit by the USFL...

re: If you were in La'el's situation, and were truly innocent - Poodlebrain
Teams expect 2nd round picks to be instant contributors. They won't waste a 2nd on someone they are not sure will even show up for camp. If I were an NFL GM I would wait to pick Collins until I had questions about whomever was at the top of my draft board's chances of making the team. Then I wo...

[quote]Sets a very dangerous precedent. [/quote]Not allowing it sets a dangerous precedent too.

One of the teams could easily tamper with a players reputation prior...
