so much for that
I got an email the other day notifying me of a Class-Action lawsuit against EA Sports.
Supplemental Notice of Proposed Settlement of Class Action
United States Federal District Court for the Northern District of California
Did anyone else get this email? did you submit a claim? Do any lawyers know what this is about? I've bought NCAA 2011, 12, and 13 for Xbox, and according to this I could get about $20+ back per title up to 8 titles. Any thoughts?
So I know that this is way off topic and this is not really the place for something like this but I am desperate and don't know what other place to go to for help. This is sort of a life changing thing for me so it is that important to me and if this gets deleted I can respect that, but like I said I am desperate for advice and help and I know there are thousands of MGoBlog users that are successful so this would be a good group of people to ask. Please just bare with me.
I have been extended an offer from a financial group as a financial consultant. Pending my passing of the series 7 and 66 exams, I will be employed at this place. So I just have a few questions that I was hoping any of you MGoFinancial consultants could answer.
- First, how hard is the series 7 and 66 exam?
- Is a financial consultant a good career path?
- I'm told that after 3-5 years you should be making somewhere between $60,000-100,000+ a year; is this correct/realistic?
- Do you like your job?
- What can I expect in my first year or so as a financial consultant? Money-wise and just experience-wise.
I don't want to get into any more details than I have already as far as which place this is, as I am more just questioning the career path itself. I don't have my college degree, just some sales background. Is that weird that they are willing to employ me? I just am the type of person who does not like not knowing what to expect and found it hard to get good opinions from my internet research.
The Washington Post has a long piece about how injuries in the NFL may not be treated the same way as they would outside of football. The injury to RGIII in the Skins' playoff game has been the subject of much debate.
There is medicine, and then there is NFL medicine, and the practice of the two isn’t always the same — a conflict that was never more apparent than during a January playoff game.
Below is a link to a graphic in the article showing injuries by year, by position and by average weeks a player is on an NFL injury report.
Thought this was pretty interesting. A group of robbers dressed as police officers snuck onto an airport tarmac in Brussels and stole $50m worth of diamonds. The way they did the whole thing reads like a plot to the next installement of the Ocean's series.
This is for anyone who has said "I could do better" than that highly trained athlete you pay to watch be an athlete. Ever say "I'm more athletic than Novak" or "I could block better than Hopkins" or "I COULD CATCH ALL THE DAMN PUNTS".... well, guess what. The highly trained athlete is better than you, despite how big you are on the internet.*
If the reality of them being a high-profile athlete and you being on the internet weren't enough, I present the Scallenge.
Brian Scalabrine, aka the White Mamba, aka Doc Rivers' human victory cigar before becoming a favorite at the United Center as a human victory cigar, played 3 normal dudes in a 1-on-3 game of basketball.
Yes. This man.
And, well, there's a reason he was paid to play basketball.
Just something to think about before you talk about how much better you are than "that guy who's playing in the game I'm watching".
*Maybe you're a better free throw shooter than Shaq. But have you ever shot them in front of 20k people? And have you shot thousands of them, while, ya know, playing in basketball games and dominating the rest of the game in front of 20k people? Because, I mean, we all can shoot better than 50% in an empty gym.
EDIT: PART 2 HAS POSTED. A 19 year old who calls himself "the Great White Hope" played Scal in 1-on-1
Per Dr. Saturday, Lane Kiffin pulled the scholarship of Kylie Fitts, a four-star DE in the recruiting class of 2013 who was scheduled to enroll early last week. Evidently he gave the kid three days' notice. Classy move.
I know there has been lots of stink made about coaches withdrawing scholarships that were promised, but has anyone heard of one revoked so close to the enrollment date?
