re: NBA owners could split a $1 billion pot if they can force Bucks to Seattle - slackster
You have a hard time believing the new owners got duped into this contract and will "only" make 25 million, yet you've got no problem with the fact that the team was sold for 550 million in the first place? That was the going rate for the Bucks, plain and simple. I'm sure the owners were ecstati...

re: 2500+ Americans will die in automobile accidents in November. - slackster
While I agree the worry seems to be over the top, this OP is a bit ridiculous. 2 million people die from Tuberculosis each year and no one seems to give a shite about TB either. However, the Ebola virus has a 50-70% mortality rate, so there are legitimate reasons to take it seriously. La...

re: Fixed Index Annuity – do any of you have experience with them? - slackster
Yeah you usually want to avoid any FIAs with income riders and fees attached. The barebones products tend to be the best bang for your buck. Bottom line is that fixed annuities have their place, as do FIAs. They are generally geared towards investors with similar risk tolerances. If you're enter...

[quote]Wouldn't that just make it an arms race for recruits? Come to X school. I'll pay you a million bucks for an autograph (exaggerated). [/quote] This. I wouldn't have a problem if a player was allowed to make money on autographs up to, let's say $3,000 per semester. It could be sancti...

[quote]Moral of the story: You pay dearly for the assurance of no lost $$. Don't be afraid of a little risk. [/quote] Meh, not necessarily. Most index annuities would have outperformed the S&P from 1999-2008, just like most would have underperformed the S&P 500 in the 90s, but that is an unfair c...

re: Coaches' Poll is out - slackster
I know. There are so many ways to rank teams. Are we ranking the best based on the results on the field? Are we taking an educated guess as to who is the best team on paper? Are we still biased based on last season and the preseason polls? I just have a hard time ranking any teams ahead of Aubur...
