[quote]There is some horrible advice in this thread.
Non compete clauses are enforceable in Louisiana; however, they are heavily disfavored. They must be limited in scope and duration. This can vary greatly depending on the industry.

Most funds have 1.5 to 2.5% in fees. If the 5% fund out performs others by 1.5 times (for instance averaging a 12% return instead of an 8%), then they are worth it.
Also, a 5% fee if you put in the $5500 max for 30 years is $275/yr. Assuming an 8% return over the 30 years that comes out to $3...

The flu vaccine doesn't wave a magic wand and make one immune from the flu. On a good year (if scientists predict the correct strands of flu to vaccinate against) the shot lowers flu risk by 50-60%. If a strand pops up that is not covered by the vaccine, the vaccine is useless....

Me too. And don't get me wrong, the I formation can work very well as an offense (see Alabama) if some variety is thrown in.
A toss sweep, a play action pass to the tight end, etc. Anything that'll keep LB's and safeties from shooti...
