|2 weeks 4 days ago||Well, if I had to guess||
I'd say it's because he's frustrated that he couldn't make the kind of impact that he wanted to at U of M. Coming in behind some of the beasts we have at LB have made the road a bit tougher than he might've expected. And looking down the barrel of the gun "no playing time" - he's acting out in any way he can to try and "shake the tree" so to speak.
It is what it is. If I was 19, the king of my HS and then went to U of M with dreams of making it big and then realized I couldn't - I'd probably be a bit pissy too. Not to justify what he's doing per se, but I can kind of get it.
That's your indepth, teenage, psychoanalysis for the day. I'll send my invoice in the mail. Good evening, and Go Blue.

in fear is a life half lived. I'll be damned if I'm not going to UTL part deux because I "think" there might be a chance I get blown up. And hey, what better way to go than in the Big House?
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Good news||
and the right call for both of these guys, IMO. Both had moments of brilliance but GR3 was inconsistent and I feel will really benefit from another year - and one good tournament isn't enough (even though he was pretty badass). (I know NBA is all on potential.. blah blah blah - but as a scout/owner - don't tell me you wouldn't like to see both of these guys a bit more polished coming into the league than what they are now...)
Kind of what people expected and I think it makes the most sense. I am happy

I actually met with Northwestern Mutual Financial and felt like I was getting fed a load of steaming you know what. Hated the "lets make a list of your friends and family deal".
Stick with your degree program, get your BA/BS, whatever - it's hard enough getting a job these days WITH that - without it you will only be able to make a good living from sales jobs. Which, there is nothing wrong with that at all - I know a bunch of guys who do it, do it well - and enjoy it. But there's a big time sacrifice with 9/10 of those jobs. At the end of the day, I'd recommend you get your degree, try and break into the corporate world and work your way up from there. But, everyone is different and all depends on what you're looking for. My perspective is certainly sales/100% commision adverse. Good luck!
|6 weeks 1 day ago||In all fairness||
some of them do work out. You work hard and you can make some good money if you're good at it.
Just to give you some insight/to back up my argument – I worked @ a car dealership for years before I got into the corporate world as a finance mgr. I worked on 100% commission and worked my tail off – crazy hours. But at least the customers came to me. I was very hesitant on the whole “build your own client base” deal. If you’re not out there hustling and making your network, it’s probably not going to work out for you. So, 1. If your personality doesn’t really mesh with the “build your network” thing – then you shouldn’t do it. But 2. At least in my experience – you’re much better off getting into the corporate world as early as you can. My previous experience in sales – while building my knowledge about many things (wasn’t a total waste, don’t get me wrong) set me back years in the corporate world. So, if I could do it all over again I would have toughed it out and waited for a corporate job with a set salary, nice benefits and time off.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Personally,||
After I finished my MBA in finance I met with a few of these companies.
All promised big time salaries as soon as I “built my client base up”. How do you do that? Well, let’s start with your friends and family… basically you make your money by getting these accounts but you’re essentially bugging your family, friends and acquaintances and it’s a sales job under the guise of “advisor”. My two cents – don’t do it and get in someplace in the corporate world where you have a guaranteed salary and don’t have to “hustle”.

God youre here to set the record straight my sage.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||So||
you're referencing one team and that's fine. But don't tell me that a pro-style QB is just as injury prone as a dual threat. Look at Vick, look at Denard. The more hits you take from guys 30-100lbs more than you, the higher the chance is that you're gonna get rocked. C'mon man, let's use some common sense here. You're obviously just trying to play devil's advocate for the sake of playing devils advocate. Now, if you would have said 'Chuckie my man! A dual-threat is more elusive and can avoid sacks better so he may get hit abou the same as a big tree sittin back there..' you might've had something.

|6 weeks 2 days ago||Don't disagree||
with that totally, however I'd say in their defense, having a pro-style QB like Bellomy- the chance for injury seems to be much less than a dual-threat QB such as Denard.

was a Roadhouse reference... you win!
