re: Arena: Nothing has to change. - Maderan on 10/11/17 at 10:06 am
I am not sure that we built anything in the last 3 years. That roster was loaded with old arse players who are past their prime. The [b]average age of our roster is 29.[/b] Only 10 of 26 players on our roster are younger than 30. For contrast[i] [i]Germany had one player over 30[/i] play in a ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Looking for volatility/tail risk hedged equity fund or etf - Maderan on 10/5/17 at 4:25 pm
There are a few products out there but the issues are as stated above. The carrying cost of the hedge is substantial. The last one I looked at was @5% per year. If you can guess right and be invested the year there is a black swan then great. Otherwise the performance haircut from fees means tha...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: SEP 401(k) - Maderan on 9/26/17 at 10:01 am
SEP and Solo 401(k) are different plans with different contribution limits. I would say do it through whichever entity charges no commissions. Zero reason to pay loads on mutual funds to someone at Northwester Mutual or your bank just because you are transferring your account. If you want to mana...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Books like Ready Player One and The Martian - Maderan on 8/18/17 at 10:30 am
Nothing out there is quite like RPO for its tying in of nostalgia and sci-fi. I will second the Vorkosigan Saga as something that has humor, relies on the wit of its protagonist, and is Sci-fi. I would start with the first Miles book (The Warrior's Apprentice) as he is the main protagonist of th...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: There Is A Ton Of Money To Be Made In Insurance... - Maderan on 8/8/17 at 3:17 pm
No problem with insurance for things I want to protect. Home, car , health, etc. You pretty much need to be unethical to sell annuities, whole life and insurance based retirement plans. Those guys suck. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: First Law trilogy - Maderan on 7/25/17 at 9:45 pm
Liked most of the first book...except the characters. Some were good and had depth but others were more like caricatures where they would not grow/learn from experiences/adapt/develop. Ruined my interest in reading the rest of the series, just couldn't care about the characters. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Do parents focus too much on children's sports? - Maderan on 6/6/17 at 10:36 am
As a parent of kids in travel sports I believe there are great positive benefits and also great pitfalls. It is like any other activity in which you can excel; art, chess, writing, academic games, music. It is a way for kids to explore their limits and seek to push past them. The main thing I wan...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: 401k Plan adviser fee question - Maderan on 3/28/17 at 8:14 pm
Depends. If they are a fiduciary for the plan then a fee on total plan assets is usual. The selection of an index fund is not a big deal to accomplish and the major constraint is typically liquidity. But most index funds are typically in a plan as a concession to low fee pressure and paired with an...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Player development question - Maderan on 3/23/17 at 9:36 am
Depends on what your son's goals are and his enjoyment of the different environments on each team. Ultimately, his enjoyment of the game and how much he wants to do with it will drive him to seek more opportunities or quit in pursuit of other interests. I would take the route that keeps him having f...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: ICC tickets - Maderan on 3/22/17 at 5:11 pm

re: You Neymar haters are delusional. - Maderan on 3/9/17 at 2:47 pm
Neymar is by far the most fouled player in Europe. He is certainly a great player but is also skilled at going to ground on contact. He is very shifty and his change of pace and change of direction skills are what give him consistent opportunities to draw fouls. He sells it well but it is certainly ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
