#3260228 All time worst free agents....

Posted by SmokinwithWilly on Yesterday, 06:52 PM

In 99 we gave up the number 5 pick. Players drafted 5,6 and 7 were Ricky Williams, Tory Holt and Champ Bailey, all pro bowlers.

 

in 00, we gave up the number 12 spot. Players drafted 12,13, and 14 were Shaun Ellis, John Abraham, and Bubba Franks, all pro bowlers.

 
When you look at just his signing, it might not be as bad as it looks, but when you look at who was drafted with the picks we gave up, or who could have been drafted right there, it's sickening.

By far the worst FA signing the Panthers ever made, and it's not even close.

what's your average time on the toilet?

It's 5 - 10 minutes of peaceful leave me the fug alone time. I've been a slow mover for the past 10 damn years as far as the wife knows.

Don't think she is trying to hurt your feelings. I don't think she gives two poos about your feelings. Next time she wants to make plans tell her you're busy. If she doesn't call you back, then you know for sure.

Of course I'm also male, what the hell do I know about how women think?


#3255777 NFL: Greg Hardy won't be reinstated because he hasn't been discipline...

Posted by SmokinwithWilly on 26 February 2015 - 07:14 PM

After the witchhunt from the media and NFL, they are just too embarrassed to let this go without some sort of punishment. They thought FOR SURE that Hardy was going to be found guilty.

Honestly though, who didn't see this coming a mile away. Of all 3 cases, Hardy wouldn't have been the one I would have put my money on for a guilty verdict.

"Conduct that undermines or puts at risk the integrity and reputation of the NFL, NFL clubs, or NFL players."

 

I'm thinking it might be time for Goodell to suspend himself.

#3250877 Wow even WalMart is more in touch with reality than the RNC

Posted by SmokinwithWilly on 23 February 2015 - 03:08 PM

You are correct, my apologies, I was recalling something from memory, but it was for households of 2 or more.

So I will re-phrase and say that getting it to the point where a person who lives with a dependant isn't below the poverty line would be a good start, and frankly we shoulD shoot for even higher than that

I agree with you as far as paying people more. I try to pay my employees well. The sad part is, the market won't allow for me to pay more. Consumers are only willing to pay a certain amount, and in order for me to compete and keep up with operating costs, there is a ceiling for employee pay.

A business plan the requires the govt to subsidize it's workforce because of the reliance on cheap labor that is near or below the poverty line....is a A) weirdly enough defended by republicans B ) capitalism baby C) Not an ethical business plan D) All of the above

 

Pay people a livable wage and then maybe I'll hop on the anti-govt subsidies train

I'm not being sarcastic when I ask. What is a livable wage? What should it be able to provide? A roof, food, and health care? Should someone with 4 kids be paid more than a single person with no kids for doing the exact same work simply based on what the needs are for 5-6 people vs 1? I'm guessing a lot of people, not saying you are one of them, confuse need with wants.

Hope for the Panthers sake he does end up in Tampa. That way when we play them in the playoffs, he can choke, just like Manning.

Profit on its face is not evil.

 

 

 

 

Rewarding yourself with a new 100 foot yacht every year while your full-time employees depend on foodstamps and medicaid is.

 

You can't dump all the employees' problems at home onto an employer. An employer offers a wage in exchange for your ability to work. If you want to work for that wage, you accept the job, if you don't, you don't. It is not the fault of the employer if you can't manage your home life. 

 

If all you ever want to learn to do is work a register or stock shelves, don't expect $100,000 a year. Sorry. Welcome to reality. Your talents aren't that amazing, and chances are, I can find a teenager fresh out of high school willing to do the same job without all the headaches you bring. This is business. 

 

If I am compensated enough by a company for my ability to oversee hundreds of thousands of employees, thousands of stores, international politics, and all the other BS that comes with heading multi billion dollar operation, and I take that compensation and buy a yacht every year, so be it. If you don't like it, you get the education and experience and the ability to do it yourself and then you hand out all the profits. When you do, you won't be CEO anymore because you will be fired by the shareholders for giving away their money. 

 

Everyone has choices in their life that they have to make. If you want to be more, you have to demand more of yourself. It all depends on whether or not you want to make a $10 an hour job at Walmart a stepping stone, or a career.

if you can't afford to pay employees, perhaps you should not hire employees.

Walmart can afford it yet they never did it until some think tank told them it would make them more money.



Actually, you should focus your attention to the real problem. The evil greedy CONSUMER.

I have bid over 1000 jobs and the question I have never ever been asked is "how much do you pay your employees?"

I have been asked on every job "how much will it cost? " and on about 95%, "Can I get it cheaper?"

The simple fact is consumers don't care at all about how much someone is getting paid. All they care about where they can get it the cheapest. Will you drive to a different gas station to spend 15 cents a gallon less? You know you will. Do you pull into that gas station and ask if they use that extra coin to pay their employees more? You know you don't.

So why is it not ok for a business to do the exact same thing consumers do and look for the best deal possible? Business exists to make money. Profit is not evil.


#3245698 What is your average monthly grocery bill?

Posted by SmokinwithWilly on 18 February 2015 - 04:22 PM

what are you hunting to get 300 - 500 lbs of meat?  Elk, moose?

Hunting elk and deer. Figure I'll get about 250-280 off a decent size bull elk and 80 off a deer. And I'm hunting in Idaho/Montana.




#3241418 League files motion for Hardy's evidence

Posted by SmokinwithWilly on 13 February 2015 - 07:50 PM

NFLPA has had ample opportunity to get in front of this. They have done virtually nothing (at least in the media blitz) to flex any muscle at all. They could have seriously weakened Goodell's stature in all of this with his wishy/washy do whatever the hell I want attitude. Kind of sad actually.
