Was hoping retire would be an option, since it's not I'll go with salary cap..and a salary floor for that matter.

If Selig turns down this trade, which as posters have stated, is not any more unbalanced than several recent trades, he might as well say goodbye to baseball in Canada.

  • Jonathan: I was thinking they might lose all their picks next year.
    Today at 02:32:41 AM
  • Brent: Yeah, agreed.  Goodell is being exposed as being a fraud.  I see a lot of traction for people standing up for what he did to the Saints.  I'd like to see some compensation come back for that agenda laden attempt to ruin an organization by a fraud.

  • Jonathan: Huge fine and loss of picks. I usually hate fining the rich, but all that money goes to retired players.
    Today at 02:36:37 AM
  • Brent: His 2014 salary so far needs to go to the retired players as he is on his way out the door.

    Today at 02:45:57 AM
  • Brent: I don't know, he didn't really answer any questions today.  He just tap danced and avoid stuff in his snake like ways.

  • Jonathan: What are chances we see AP or Hardy this year?
    Today at 03:13:27 AM
  • Brent: AP probably zero.  I'm not sure there is a place for a child abuser in the league no matter what his talent level is.  The switch hit is 4 y/o in the penis, that is not acceptable punishment no matter what the child did.

    Today at 03:40:30 AM
  • Jonathan: Teams don't know what to do when both he and Shady are out there.
    Today at 03:41:43 AM
  • Brent: Yes he has.  Very true, it's tough to decide who to key on when they can both house it.
    Today at 03:42:38 AM
  • Brent: I'm liking how Cooks has fit into our offense.  I hate that Ingram got hurt b/c he was running really good.
    Today at 03:44:44 AM
