I don't pay enough attention to famous people to have significant feelings either way.


#3303570 Who do you side with in this video, bicyclist or driver?

Posted by KSpan on 28 March 2015 - 01:04 PM

in NC we have full rights to use the lane if we follow the rules, it's the assholes that are too impatient that get us killed not the car drivers. Think about that next time youre annoyed.


Then cyclists also need to understand that red lights, stop/yield signs, and lane markers apply to them too. I HATE cyclists in my area because a large number of them claim the road like a driver and expect to be treated like one right up until it comes time to follow the rules like a driver, at which point the rules conveniently no longer apply.

Stephen Hill laughs at this signing.


Boykin laughs about having been on an actual 53-man roster last season.

So Ealy had 4 sacks in the last week of 2014 season?

I have a bad memory.


No, but he did have a sack in each of the final 3 games. He has now accomplished that feat as many times (once) as Hardy has in his career, and Hardy didn't do it until the final 3 games of 2013, his 4th season in the league and third as a full-time starter.

I'm not saying that Kony is as good as Hardy right now, but I do think he's far from maxed out.

Definitely a Gettleman signing, and not a bad one on paper.


#3289876 Greg Hardy to the Cowboys

Posted by KSpan on 18 March 2015 - 04:12 PM

Right. There was no penalty for being over it all year. Just had to be under it when the clock struck midnight (or whatever). That makes for many options I hadn't thought of before. Obviously the player has to agree to as I said in the other post.
 

EDIT: Sorry I'll stop talking about this. Just blew my mind when ti dawned on me you could manipulate the cap in this particular way.

 

Teams can't go over the cap during the year - NO wasn't actually over the 2014 cap.  All of their contracts were over the 2015 as written, and if they hadn't done what they did they would have immediately been over once the 2015 cap once the new year began, just like any other team. Going over results in signfiicant fines and cap penalties, kind of like what Dallas and Washington were hit with following 2010 (although that was for a slightly different reason).  Link: http://espn.go.com/n...lions-cap-space

 

Becasue Hardy was only active for two games last year, I believe that only his first 2 game bonuses fall into the 'likely to be earned' category.  Bonuses in this category must be accounted for in the cap calculation, but bonuses that count as 'not likely to be earned' do not count against a yearly cap until reconciliation at the end of the year.  The Cowboys may have a significant cap mess to deal with (and another poster mentioned moves they could make to fix it), but they won't be penalized because of the bonus classification.  Savvy contract structure.
