re: Uber drivers not happy with long hauls - PokerPlayingTiger
[quote]I agree, ther should be a surcharge for an empty leg back but that's on Uber not me. I happen to tip very well when they do bring me across. [/quote] Uber prices the ride. They can't predict whether the driver will be able to get a ride back or not. So it really isn't on Uber to create a s...

re: Uber drivers not happy with long hauls - PokerPlayingTiger
[quote]Don't they get locked out if they refuse a ride?[/quote] No. The way it works is that drivers are not provided the destination until after they accept the ride. At that point, they have a short window of time to cancel. Unless you make it worth their while for the empty ride back they ...

re: Hearing a lot of talk of Saints fans wanting Payton gone - PokerPlayingTiger
[quote]Loomis is 50/50 responsible for dead cap, he created the contracts; however, it was SP & Ireland's recommendations about who to get and who to get rid of. [/quote] I keep hearing this about Loomis being responsible for the dead cap. How exactly is this so? If those players would have made ...

re: Dead Money Culprit - PokerPlayingTiger
[quote]Well the only way to have a NE or GB or Pittsburgh mindset and keep your own and have cheap talent is when you actually draft well. [/quote] One thing we do regularly that drives me nuts is to trade up in the draft. That is a recipe for disaster. When you combine our inability to draft wel...

re: Dead Money Culprit - PokerPlayingTiger
From the responses so far, it seems like this whole situation is more attributable to bad luck than any kind of incompetence. I can't really argue we have had plenty of bad luck. I had just been hearing a lot on this issue and Loomis being thrown under the bus, so I was just trying to better unde...

re: SQ: If Etling is that good - wouldn't the coaches have seen it in practice? - PokerPlayingTiger
[quote]Harris is fantastic at practice. Once the pressure is on in a real game situation, he is below average. Same curse for Jefferson unfortunately.[/quote] This is my impression as well. It seems that Harris > Etling in practice. However, that isn't worth a crap if you can't handle the game ...

re: Dead Money Culprit - PokerPlayingTiger
[quote]Blame to be placed all around really. The talent evaluator, the GM for the contract structuring and dollar amount, coaches for bad schemes that maybe the player doesn't fit in to, and then lastly the player due to some getting paid and then become complacent and stop putting forth the effort....

Dead Money Culprit - PokerPlayingTiger
So who is really to blame here? Seems like most are placing the blame on Loomis. In my opinion, the problem is that the players that we are bringing in aren't working out and not necessarily a function of contract structures. The real problem is our inability to evaluate talent, be it via free agenc...

re: Current QB contract details - PokerPlayingTiger
Looking at the list it is clear that Brees is asking way too much at $25M/year average salary at his age. The $100M isn't really the most important number. The guaranteed $ is what really matters. I haven't yet heard how much guaranteed money Brees wants....
