The moment I heard that the Bears were going to approach Bennett regarding reducing his pay (after he did so last season), I knew he wouldn't be a Bear much longer and I immediately thought he would be a good fit with the Panthers. He has great hands and good speed. Regarding him not taking a pay cut with the Bears and summarily getting cut, I would think the Panthers could scoop him up on the relatively cheap (his salary was only going to be around $3 million, I think). I don't believe there are any rules that once a player is cut that an offering team has to match the contract figure from his last contract...
He'll be a lot better option available than most of the retreads that are likely to be on the scrapheap...
Someone has his letter archived. They will post it
Gah, I love gmail. Makes it so easy to track down old ass emails... here's the email exchange between me and one certain individual of leather jackets, awesome sunglasses and finely made glass sculptures...
This is dimbee. Just wanted to say sorry, dude. It was never my intention for you to take my ribbing of you personally nor to drive you away from the site. I don't think you're gay (and, quite honestly, I never called you that- you're confusing others with me on that one). Just wanted to apologize to you.
From said poster:
No, you just HINTED that I am gay... more than once. I don’t have time to go searching for all of the references right now, but you did it in the “what celeb do u look like” thread TWICE... this despite the fact that I’d made it pretty clear in the past that I don’t like when that happens. Call me a geek, call me a virgin (for now), but do NOT call me gay.
And you DEFINITELY called me “pedophilic”, which is much, MUCH worse. And that poo got indexed on Google and other search engines... right now, if you Google “clayj”, you’ll easily find a reference to your dumbass thread about my avatar being “pedophilic”. It’s gone from the Huddle now because I asked Ms. Skyy and Kurb to delete it, but now I have to deal with the very real possibility that someone out in the real world will see that reference in a search engine, make a connection to me, and create a real world problem for me that involves law enforcement... even though I’ve done NOTHING wrong (personally, I think pedophiles should be killed slowly and painfully). What you call a joke could very easily become a nightmare for someone else.
So until I know for a fact that I’m in the clear when it comes to your moronic actions (i.e., referring to me or my avatar as “pedophilic”), you can keep your apology.
I want you to think about that the next time you think about calling someone gay, or a pedophile, or anything else that might get them into trouble. Words DO have meaning and consequences, and I refuse to be associated with anyone who apparently doesn’t put one iota of thought into the possible consequences of what they write. Val deserves more of an admonishment than you do for calling me gay, but you get the full credit for the pedophile comment.
So, it's been a long time! I hope all is well. I figured now would be as good of a time as any to pop back in here with the season now officially done. So, what's new around here? I see some familiar names from yesteryear still floating around in here...
Well, I came up with some really great, original vows that were so in tune with her and my relationship. I, of course, left these written vows folded in the back pocket of the blue jeans I wore to the venue prior to changing into my tux....... I realized this about 5 minutes before I had to join the ceremony, so I tried as hard as I could to remember the most important, meaningful and funny parts that I had written. I did well... I nailed it, in fact. People were in tears and seconds later laughing their asses off. It was a triumph. Women now sings songs of it and men speak of it around campfires.
