That's an idea.
Not a fan of cash man. Once it's gone it's gone. If it works for you thats great.
I will look into sep accounts.


Not trying to sway your thinking, but I got the wifey on cash only for about 2 months...she was up a few hundred in that time period.


However, she slid right back into normalcy....and now she is asking for my card all the time.

In Topic: Is Shia LaBeouf a "great" actor?

Today, 03:40 PM

"Great" puts him in the same conversation with De Niro, Streep, Oldman, Pacino, Hanks, Nicholson, Blanchett and Hopkins. If you think you can do that, you are just wrong, or have irreparably bad taste in movies.


(*edit* Pacino before he became a parody of himself)


Great actors and actresses vanish into the role they are playing, make you forget that you are watching someone acting, and are distinguishable from one role to the other. I'd throw in D'Onofrio for the "Great" conversation because he is a chameleon that changes his colors with every role he takes.


Shia is just Shia in every role he takes. If someone says he is a great actor, what they really mean is, "I've seen him in a lot of movies I like."


And if they try to reboot the Indiana Jones franchise with him at the helm, I hope that when I murder him, a grateful world will give me an airtight alibi.



May also need to add Duval, Norton, and Pitt to the Great category as well.

thefuzz blasts others for having no idea how being a gm actually works, yet speaks as if players are simply numbers and not real individuals. You cannot simply remove the real life variables from a situation of tagging a possibly disgruntled QB and how they impact the team.


CRA is certainly making credible points.


If fans can see that Newton is carrying a clearly flawed offense with little help, other teams can obviously also see that.


If you think a number of general managers in the NFL would not jump at the opportunity to acquire him, you are beyond reasoning with.


If you are going to talk to or about me please quote me.



There is no other issue, and as a GM you can't think about how hurt a players feelings are when it comes to business.



If Cam wants too much money, or decides he wants out, the only logical solution is the only one at hand.  You tag him until you can't, and then move on.  There is no grey area.



Of course other GM's and HC's see how good Cam is, that only solidifies my stance on it.  If Cam walks into DG's office and demands to be the highest paid QB in the league, with the most guaranteed money in NFL history, DG will say thanks, and I will get back at you at any point over the next 45 or so football games.  He will be wearing a Panthers uniform for the next 3 seasons, minimum, unless the FO decided to trade him.  (not likely)

Same as always.



Get as good of an O Line as possible.


Then WR's, TE's, then RB's.

You do realize Newton seeing that 5th year makes him the first....and only.

You really think a team wants to pay an uninterested QB/leader tag money....that openly wants out? Oh, but I guess he will still play hard and comically sacrifice his body, lead, etc....that would be paying millions and handicapping your team for someone to play with the "wants out" mindset at the one position that touches the ball every snap.

You can just tag/pay and automarically get leadership, effort, etc for it. That is the leverage. Leverage is you handicap your team with the tag.....and the disgruntled player makes life hard and disruptive. Wouldn't work at QB. Cam has muscle if he wanted out....it wouldn't be pretty but he has it



You don't understand.  If Cam pulls that crap, the other teams see it too.  No one will rush to his door after 7 years in a Carolina uniform and throw him a 100M dollar contract if shits the bed, or causes issues.



He can use all the muscle he wants, and try to force himself out, but all it will do in the end is cost him money and years in a long term deal.
