Re: Politics

For clarity - when I was using the term Democrat it was directed at lawmakers - not necessarily people who support the party or vote Democratic - I recognize many of us split their voting tickets and even if we trend heavily to voting a single party it doesn't mean you support every aspect of that p...

Re: Politics

DT's issue with the Daniels thing may be he paid her for the sex and that's what he didn't want being revealed. On the Haiti comments it perfectly illustrates the problem with Trump - he has been more willing in my opinion to take on more unpopular but necessary issues and try and get action on them...

Re: Politics

I work in R&D - translation - with a bunch of OCD, anal analyticals and several of them have evaluated the changes and impact and all of them have said they expected to benefit from changes (they were all PA guys - not Tax Jersey so the onerous property / income tax potential deduction loss did ...

Re: Former Players Thread

I didn't see whole game so injury is possible but his snaps are definitely down this year. He may be at the end of his deal with the Jags so question will be how cheap will he play for as he's likely a good back up and from any account I've read a good leader / teammate in locker.

Re: Politics

I don't think the tax cuts will show up in checks until Feb. My initial checks of year are lower due to NJ SUI contributions (which max out after a few months) and late in the year the SSDI maxs out.

I'd say wait a few paychecks and check your FIT hit.

Re: Former Players Thread

GB started as a DB at PSU and I think only had one year as the feature RB. Still remember him pulling the ball from Detmer on a Statue of Liberty play in Holiday Bowl vs BYU and going for TD. In a Catch 22 - happy to see Paul P. finally make it to playoffs, sad to see he's being phased out at Jags a...

Re: 2017 Team Thread

Penn State DB Jonathan Sutherland is possibly the 1st pick of NFL draft - well according to Browns - they put a poll for fans to ask if a RB was worth 1st pick - with a pic of # 26 from PSU. Only problem was the pic was Jonathan Sutherland (who also wears # 26) instead of Saquon Barkley - a much mor...

Re: Politics

I think the only reason he hasn't quit already is because he would never give his critics the satisfaction. And there's the Catch 22 - he won't quit because he doesn't want to hear it from his detractors and they wouldn't be able to keep their mouths shut if he told them "I'll walk away if you ...

Re: Politics

B&W - Trump having a financial stake in book is not as crazy as it sounds - in the ESPN 30:30 on The Boz they revealed that The Boz was behind an anti-Bosworth T-Shirt opposing fans bought and the recipient of the proceeds. I wouldn't be shocked at all if Trump someone makes money of Twitter and...

Re: Other College Football Games

I'd argue if the playoff field was expanded to 8 or 16 you could probably drop the conference championships (thus you net zero one extra round).

As far as revenue the NCAA doesn't get a take to ticket sales / TV revenue but from locked in previous sponsorship / partnership deals.
