"There is no reason for these salaries to wildly outpace growth in just about every other field in the country."

I'm sure we will see that from the Mathlete (and I look forward to it), but frankly we don't need it to know that it's true. There were very few freshmen that ever saw significant (if any) playing time before the mid-2000s, and really, probably more accurately 2009. The question I'm more curious about isn't if, it's when it happened. I suspect it wasn't really until 2009, which masked some of why what happened in the next few years happened, and only seems like it happened sooner because we were blessed with several of those exceptions (Henne, Hart, Manningham) in basically the same short span.

I wish I could lend some insight, but this will largely depend upon some particularities of New York common law. So you will need to have some of the New York admitted lawyers who post here contribute to get the most accurate answer. From a very general perspective, though, I tend to side with Singh on this one (but that certainly isn't based upon the state law that will actually control in this cass).

I see what you mean. I find that, generally, when people can an answer its beyond obvious that they have something memorized and it sounds absolutely inauthentic. We far prefer that they have a situation or experience that they can pull answers from when they get a question, rather than having a precise answer. We do a lot with behavioral interviewing, though, so if you don't that may be where our perspectives differ.

I didn't say unprepared. There is a big difference between being prepared and having obviously canned answers.

Exactly. When they show the angle that looks straight at the end line it's absolutely clear that initial contact was to the body (front of left shoulder) and then carried through to the head.

No. He didn't. If you watch it frame by frame, he is not in the air with both feet when contact is made.

On his feet until contact and initial contact was to the shoulder. Terrible.

You mean the same idiots that decided not to call a blatant over the glass penalty at the end of regulation against the Capitals? No way...

I agree. I would also pay decent money to be able to watch the regional broadcasts throughout the entire playoffs (especially living out of market).

Absolutely. That was just awful.

Can anyone explain why NBC insists on using jokers like McGuire, Emerick, Olczyk, etc. when there are other options that are so much better? So happy to have Rick Peckham on this game tonight. Boston-Toronto has CBC's simulcast. Night and day difference from the AWFUL combination that they had for the Caps-Rangers game (Emerick, Olczyk, McGuire). Just call the damn game, stop the theatrics (it's a driiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiive!), and the stupid personal interest stories during the game (no one gives a crap that two of the Islanders played for the Penguins last year, let alone that you need to tell us about it 8 times in two games). I don't know why, but the TSN and CBC crews just call the game, while the NBC crews try to make it a show. So annoying. Personally, I hate these "national" crews because they don't know crap about the teams (aside from the basic stuff that anyone knows) and repeat the same stuff game after game after game as if no one watched the previous games. It's such an uneducated broadcast and so annoying for fans that closely follow the teams. That said, Rick Peckham is the clear exception and I wish they would use him more, instead of continuing to put their awful trio on every "important" game. /rant. Sorry... Had to get that off of my chest, and I can't be the only one who this pisses off.

I think Tennessee pretty much closed the door on much future expansion (same with Alabama) due to the way they did their last expansion and closed in the entire stadium.

I know you were. I absolutely agree with you on the food scene. There was a place we went that had some of the best wings I've ever had. Can't remember the name, but it was where Mike Sherman did his radio show. Really unexpected.

I know, I know, there are allegiances, but as an out of towner I'm cool with just saying that they make damn good chicken in that town, no matter where you get it. Now I am hungry. I could also go for some chicken fried bacon at Sodolak's in Snook...

It's kind of funny that the author mentions food, then completely omits the best food in town. What I wouldn't give right now for some Layne's chicken fingers...
