re: Asik out indefinitely with Crohn's disease diagnosis - TigerinATL
[quote]Also if he does retire do that technically make him an expiring contract?? [/quote] No. We're the only team he can medically retire from for this. [quote]Only the player's team at the time the injury or illness was discovered (or reasonably should have been discovered) can apply for th...

re: Asik out indefinitely with Crohn's disease diagnosis - TigerinATL
[quote]I doubt him coming off the books really helps us with cap space[/quote] It's starting to look like a moot point with Asik feeling better, but if he had come off the books it would mean you don't have to trade a 1st to dump him to stay under the tax. Then you could use that 1st to try and...

re: iOS 11 causing massive battery drain issues - TigerinATL
[quote]I don't know about on an older phone, [/quote] That's not what the people that did the study assumed, they talked about FaceID scanning and people poking around new features of a new OS. But I'm assuming a lot of this is older models. It happens every upgrade cycle, the older models aren...

re: Asik out indefinitely with Crohn's disease diagnosis - TigerinATL
[quote]Unbelievable [/quote] This could be good (for the team, not Asik). If he's still out by February then it might be debilitating enough to get a medical retirement and have him come off the books. So instead of stretching or paying to dump him, he comes off the books and insurance picks up...

iOS 11 causing massive battery drain issues - TigerinATL
[quote]Wandera's report shows how, on average, an iPhone or iPad running iOS 10 takes 240 minutes of usage to drain the battery from 100 percent to zero. With iOS 11 installed, this number plummets to just 96 minutes -- over twice as fast.[/quote] https://betanews.com/2017/09/25/ios-11-battery-drai...

re: Should Apple Buy Sony? - TigerinATL
:lol: I did say I wouldn't like what Apple would do to Sony, but as I was subjected to the 20th Crackle commercial for their original show Snatch, I began thinking Crackle would probably make Sony more money as part of someone else's streaming service. I've watched a few things on Crackle includin...

re: Should Apple Buy Sony? - TigerinATL
Sony's market cap is $47 Billion. Apple has $250 Billion in cash reserves. They could do it and it seems like a nice fit, I'm not sure how cost effective it'd be though. I also assume Apple could have a PS Vue like service tomorrow if they really wanted one, but I'm guessing they aren't getting ...

[quote]I didn't know every organization had James Andrews on staff.[/quote] I think every pro sports team should have this attitude so getting the best may not be possible but it'd be nice if it was at least a top 50ish doctor/surgeon in his field. One thing I will say about Dr. Suri is that he ...

Kushner with a response from team sources.
