re: The Gentrification of New Orleans - NoSaint on 8/3/15 at 9:33 pm
I enjoy that the times pic reporter is covering the tax sales putting thousands of blighted houses and vacant lots (many owing tens of thousands in taxes) back into commerce as a negative (gentrification hurts the working man!) instead of a positive for communities (both in safety and tax base).... ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Best Trio of WR in the NFL - NoSaint on 7/29/15 at 9:26 pm
There are plenty of reasons to say they won't be the most productive but Watkins, wood, and harvin with a high end qb would be dangerous. Add clay and McCoy and that's a versatile set of guys in the passing game. No qb, big questions on the line but purely skill it's a sneaky good group...

I wouldn't give her full value but likely would consider some sort of middle ground, assuming all was otherwise good condition too.
