Bundy has all the rights in the world to stage a peacefull protest but he and his band of malcontents don't have the right to take up arms against the US Government. Nobody likes paying taxes and everyone would like free land but that is not the way it works in the USA. :usa:...

I'm curious also of what people think he brings to the table. How good is he. I would be happy if he is can be any where near as good as that freshman TE Bama has, OJ Howard. Maybe Smith is more of a wideout or H back than an actual TE. But I hope he gets utilized in some form this season along with...

Speith will give him a run for his money, but I can't see anyone surpassing Tigers early in his career achievements. But Speith will be big competition for him from here on out. This is Speiths first Masters. He just turned pro. The golf world needs to be on the lookout for a new star player. ...
