  1. Yesterday
  2. Ran across this tweet. An interesting read from a football genius (whether we like him or not):

    I wonder what the birth rate for next January will be?
  4. Last week
  5. A few years ago I would really care if they canceled, today, it bothers me not.
  6. No as they the veterans make millions it is the younger players and ones not millionaires that need to be furloughed.
  7. Let's look into the future and see what the ER lounge will look like if the football season is canceled....
  8. I can see a run on the banks by the end of apr.
  9. Look, this virus is so contagious that the numbers will grow quickly. With that said, it isn't until we see the final test results from the real first wave of infected will we know where we stand. The stimulus is great for us right now but will cost this economy in the long run. Once the police, rescue, doctors, nurses get infected then we are in real trouble as a society. If it happens. They are now expecting a new wave to hit in the fall; ouch. I wrote a detailed article back when Katrina hit, how the Saints should move and why, for the betterment of NO, they should move. In short, it hinged on the payments NO had to make to the Saints, to keep them from moving out. I am not sure if that agreement is still in plaxe today. But the numbers showed how the City, even with all the concession workers, bars, restaurants, etc, and tax from that, was still loaing money having the Saints. While the math was right, I think I was wrong in agreeing with it, a year later they won it all. Even so, if that agreement is in place, you would see why NO the city is so poor. They have to cancel the season, but doing so won't hurt the teams nor the league. This country by then, may need the distraction of football, a silly game grown men play. With the shortage of toilet paper, people resorting to paper towels and napkins and who knows what, we might see more than the ecconomy truly crash. With no football, we may see a run on the banks too...

    Sorry about your job Max. Hopefully it's not too long. Stay safe everyone
  11. 4th of July feels like a million years from now. I hear the virus damages the lungs. That's bad for everybody and for some or many of these athletes, it could be career ending.

    Thanks! I wish everybody to be safe and in good health. Remember...I was a pretty good troll at one time. Ask crav. Believe it or not, one of my main goals in life is grow and go towards being as good a man as I can be. As you know...I fall short at times. Like everybody, I have my strengths and weaknesses, so it seems that sainthood may not be my lot in life. So............ we're on Lock Down.... I guess this means I can't ride my bike in parks or on trails. It does say we can take short walks. I'm trying to stay isolated since Friday was my last day working and in public. Right now I feel good, but we'll see over the next week. The "Wait and See" is for all of us.
  13. Second that, I wish everyone good health here.

    While I don't know you personally, Max, it's evident to me that you're a good man. I hope that because of the $2.2 trillion relief bill, your employer is able to keep you on the payroll as long as necessary. In the meantime I wish you and your family good health.

    Here's a good, positive read...sort of a "look ahead"..... https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2020/03/29/coronavirus-crisis-response-reshape-american-history/5079760002/

    Coronavirus

    I was furloughed Friday. The company hopes to be back up and running by June and they said they don't want to lose anybody. I filed for unemployment for the first time in my life. We're all in new waters. Everybody. Many in worse situations than mine because I can pay my bills. My heart goes out to them. I've been there too. Now the big wait for 5-14 days to see if I got dosed while I was working with crews in peoples homes. The worst part of that was that as each day came and more was revealed about this virus, my conscience bothered me more and more in thinking that I could be a carrier and infect others.....especially worried about the people who were most vulnerable with preexisting health conditions. I probably would not have shown up for work Monday morning after reading this:
  17. So they went to get an 8 year vet from Denver, 1 year deal, 6 mil, 3 mil guarenteed for Derick Wolf... Not a bad deal, certainly better than Brockers, should have kept Pierce..
  18. A guy in public health predicted infectious apex in MD around July 4. If thats the case it could be sept before levels are low enough. I guess a 5spt/oct camp and preseason and maybe a 10-11 week scedule.
  19. Yea...here's a little more on that.... Big maybe, yet training camp has a chance to happen. In the mean time, I'm glad that I have NFL Game Pass to watch all of last seasons games and from years past. You should get it. I love it. That may be enough to keep me out of a Psych Ward.
  20. I think there's a good chance it will be cancelled. But lets see where we stand in May. If, a big if, they can get training camp in during July/August, they'll probably play but a decision will have to be made long before that unfortunately.
  21. I would not be shocked to see the season canceled. I said as much about mlbyeterday
  22. They'll be furloughed and then become eligible for unemployment.
