Several people here are pointing out how prices are increasing. That's really not the point. The salaries of the working man have largely stayed stagnant. Let's not even talk about the minimum wage which is a far cry from a living wage, I might add. Yes, everything is going up, but salaries aren't keeping up with the pace.

I am really done now.

Pie for correctly using the word corps. Just something I notice on the Huddle a lot. Don't mind me.

Hey! Wait a minute! I have have been using "corps" correctly on the Huddle for years, mainly in reference to our wide receivers. Sometimes, I have also referred to the motley crew of receivers that we've fielded for the last few years as our wide receiving corpse as well. Is that correct? :)

The majority of supply-side economists (especially libertarians) would agree with you there. I'm a very conservative Republican and I don't see any real value in giving money to corporations... if a company can't survive on its own, why give it money?

Well on that point we can agree. But I might point out that corporate welfare is rarely about survival, as much as it is about finding and creating ways in order to take from taxpayers, many of whom are the really needy, in order to increase the coffers of the greedy. That's just the way I see it, but, again, I am stepping down from the soapbox.

Competition trumps Huddle hate, as do the thoughts of Dave Gettleman and the coaches.

I certainly am not going to overlook Klein, Glanton or Trusnik. I believe all three of them are NFL calibre players. But, unfortunately there are only so many roster spots.

Like I have said throughout, keep your eyes on special teams.

Considering NFL teams are usually subsidized publicly to some extent, I'm not quite sure how criticisms of 'trickle-down economics' are relevant given most advocates of supply-side economics would reject the idea of publicly subsidizing business.

Supply side economics is fine in theory, but it can still make for highway robbery by unscrupulous and unethical people, just like the scourge of corporate welfare that has little redeeming value, if any, in regards to helping America reach its true potential. But, I am going to get off my soapbox, as I just merely wanted to spotlight another instance of the epitome of irony.
