For what the Rangers gave up for Yandle you probably were looking at giving up a Sheahan, Mantha/Larkin, and multiple picks. His price was crazy high.

That would be a phone auto correcf
|2 days 11 hours ago||Rumor||
Rumor was Weiss and Kindle (plus picks) so you would drop $4.9M in Weiss contract and then if the cap expands as expected Phaneauf's contract doesn't seem as bad.

No that guys is a cartoonist version of Ace for sure!
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I think 30 is a good number.||
I think 30 is a good number. The NBA clock is too quick there isn't enough skill on the floor to get good looks in 16-19 second after crossing mid court. 35 seconds tends to make the game stagnant with a lot of "motion" with no actual attempt to get to the basket.

New coordinators means new systems. Could move team to more spread on offense or from 4-3 to 3-4 on defense. If you are a projected DE in 4-3 scheme but don't think you fit into an outside rusher in a 3-4 that change greatly affects you.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||I think you made the point,||
I think you made the point, other teams did it while legal. The fact they have multiple incidents where they were on the wrong side of the rules gives them little to no slack. From spygate, to manipulating injury reports, to deflategate it just shows the "we are above the rules" mentality.

I see what you're saying now. Thanks for the clarification.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Umish?||
UMish? Is there an "s" in Michigan? Seems like a terrible shorthand version
|5 weeks 20 hours ago||Former Players||
Many former players have said NE manipulates the injury report. From misreporting how or what a player is injured, to making guys "questionable" when they are clearly out (or completely healthy). It may not be "against the letter of the rule" but it is not acting in good faith.

I guess I should have clarified. Regardless of within "NFL standard" or not, wouldn't there had been a drop in psi? Assuming the balls would have been filled by an equipment guy in the locker room.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Honest question||
I haven't followed this, and this seems like real science so I will ask. If this is true wouldn't have Colts footballs also been affected? If so were Colts balls ever tested?

Maybe? Could Bo have been combining stories? Chuck Long seems to fit everything except "transferred while in college"
|6 weeks 1 day ago||He was from New Mexico and||
He was from New Mexico and also never transferred while in college. So don't think he fits.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Jeff George?||
I believe it was a reference to Jeff George. He fit all the knocks Bo pointed out. Pissed people off, transfered in college (Purdue to Illinois), bounced around NFL, midwest kid, etc.
Edit: George was couple years too young. Vinny sounds right.

This bracket is completely wrong... Who doesn't put the #1 and #2 seeds on opposite sides? Someone needs a better editor.

Big goal. But title man, come on!!!
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Former players||
Special thanks to the former football players that have been rumored to have called and lobbied to being JH back. The one that stands out is Woodson publicly saying he would want Harbaugh at Michigan over Oakland.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||An issue...||
I know it's not an important fact, but I'll call BS because there is no chance Ross contacted JH. Ross would be stupid to temp the NFL with tampering charges. Ross would never risk losing draft picks, or major fines to tell JH "hey we are keeping Philbin, but you should leave SF and go to Michigan."
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Brady is that you???||
I mean you couldn't even agree to finally put on a head set?
|10 weeks 4 days ago||No because being right||
No because being right doesn't mean he actually had any information. Making guesses sometimes produce the correct answer. Especially when he makes statements and then builds in an "out clause" right at the end.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||I think you nailed it with||
I think you nailed it with the last words of your post... An exhibition game. None of those pros were playing for anything, the college kids were playing to get noticed and picked up by a Pro team.

Tigers have also acquired Alfredo Simon from the Reds. Josh Rosenthal reporting

Here to save another thread! I do wonder if you have this link just auto copied? bookmarked? or do have you simply memorized the link?

Wait so Harbaugh didn't have sexual relations with that women? I'm confused.

|12 weeks 4 days ago||No coach?||
If we are trying to find a coach with zero skeletons in his closet we will enter 2015 and every season after with no coach. Every one of these coaches has some baggage. I would agree you can't hire someone like Bobby Petrino, but all of these guys have some shady recruiting history, or brought in a player who may have had a reputation, or has a DUI... I think we are all kidding ourselves if we expect to hold to the standard of a choir boy coaching a game like football.

At least try and get close my friend... Then to compound the problem with this extended rant that ended with Pat Narduzzi? Easily could have been posted anywhere in the 3-5 other threads already created on this.
