Panthro

Higher Taxes may force Phil Mickelson into Retirement

I don't blame him for being upset, I am as well.

However I don't do things like threaten to stop working, or quit my job though.

Who is he threatening...he's self employed. Threaten to move? Yeah.

Careful...he'll shoot.

Picking on Panthro with that statement. He threatened in another thread to quit his job if he didn't get a 25% pay raise if his boss put him on the government healthcare (that he supported) and cancelled the private policy.

It was a joke.

I said I wouldn't stay and would find another job.. Thanks for making me sound as dramatic as Mickelson though

Not sure I'd call what Phil said "dramatic"... the potential for moving across the country is what I would consider "drastic" as he said. Although for a guy of his wealth not nearly as drastic as others...

I think what he's saying is that the tax rates have caused him to have to say "hey, I may have to change some things in my life, and possibly move to another state..." No matter your wealth that's potentially a pretty big deal.

Looked to me like the guy that wrote the article was the one making it dramatic.

Wouldn't stay, and quitting are the same...no?

Financially it doesn't make sense in this case for him to just quit (which he won't), but if there's any debate on how excessive taxation is a demotivator, I understand the point he's making.

    • I like the use of props like in that old MTV allstar game where there was like 2 additional baskets above the main hoop. Could be interesting.

    • It seems like every year around draft time, huddle math kicks into full effect.  Somehow by puck 8 the top 20 prospects will magically be gone. Always amazes me.  Unless you are trading up to 1 draft a Peppers or Cam franchise can't miss prospect I don't see why this team would trade up with a pick in the top 10.  Use last years slump to your advantage and build your core.  Get 2-3 starting caliber (not necessary starters on this team but starting caliber) NFL players and some depth guys.  I like Fournette but there are other guys that can fill a role on this team who will be available.  No need to throw the draft away. Just my opinion. 
    • Oh hell, make it 28 points. Boy, the failcons could have used that.
