#2407902 Beason traded?

Were you best friends with any of them?

Just think how it would make you feel if they told you that they were cutting your friend?

You figured it was their senior year so they would be safe... but they ended up getting cut anyway.

This is essentially what happened to Beason.

I would feel bad for them. But it is sports. Things happen. Guys get kicked off the team. Quit the team.

In the NFL it is a business. It you sit around in sorrow every time your buddy gets traded or gets cut you will be sad all the time.

Beast isn't getting cut. He is getting paid millions of dollars and gets a chance to actually play and play the position he is best at.

In this scenario I would be happy for Beast

It's super clear who has played a sport and who hasn't...

Some times athletes are worth more than what they do just on the field.

Having the opportunity to be a part of a college coaching staff, I found this out last year.

I played sports my whole life and have some college rings to show for it.

We had a couple of smart bench players who went on to other coaching staffs.

When they graduated, we still won titles.

We pay coaches well for film study. We have maybe the best MLB in the league. We have a great and vocal leader in TD.

We can't just keep struggling players because they might be good in film room.

With Luke and TD I think we will be just fine in the leadership department

#2407761 Beason traded?

Posted by teeray on 03 October 2013 - 11:31 PM

All I keep seeing is... "Hey, at least we are getting something for him".

Our last 7th round pick (D.J. Campbell- 2012) isn't even on the roster anymore.

There is no guarantee that we are even getting anything in return for him because a 7th round pick might not even make the roster.

Beason would have much more value as a back up to Luke and Blackburn than a 7th round pick would.

He isn't even playing so what are we giving up?

Beast is gone no matter what and isn't playing.

If we need a leader that is vocal to sit on the sidelines we can just draft one in the 7th round next year.

Plus we drafted Klein for a reason

AJ Klein is going to be a good player that can play multiple LB positions. I am not as concerned about depth.

#2407567 Beason traded?

Based on Beasts playing time and contract we are getting another drafted player for nothing.

If that player doesn't work out, so what? it is nothing ventured nothing gained

#2407539 Beason traded?

Beason for a 7th round pick isn't exactly a win...

A 7th round pick might not even translate to a roster player.

He hasn't even really played in two years. What pick would you expect?

We don't know what round we are getting yet.

But the more important thing is we are also doing what is best for Beast. Gives him a chance to rejuvenate his career at the position he is best at.

Fire Gettleman...

A late round pick for Beason is an insult to a man that gave his all for the Panthers...

A late round pick isn't worth it...

I don't think it is disrespectful to Be as on to send him to a place where he has a chance to play and maybe move back to the middle where he belongs.

And given recent history, getting any pick for him is a win, win

There were three things I would have liked to have seen stay in or be added that aren't that would have made this bill so much better.

1- mandatory to buy insurance through exchanges

2- offering the public option

3- tort reform

#2407348 Report: Boehner won't let US default on its debt

Posted by teeray on 03 October 2013 - 10:16 PM

If they put it up for a vote I would be shocked if it didn't pass.

But if I have learned anything it is that the Republican Congress is completely stupid.

As far as Boehner goes, he isn't the problem. He is being held hostage by the dumbasses who keep threatening his Speakership if he tries to compromise on anything.

#2406861 Ted "Born A" Ginn

Posted by teeray on 03 October 2013 - 04:18 PM

I'm happy for Ginn and hes a nice piece for us. But don't get yourself to the point where you expect pro bowls from him. He's like a three point shooter that can't play defense. He has a niche in our offense but he isn't the focal point.

He is the Dell Curry of the Carolina Panthers

Dont care aboust the politics just want a straight answer. I have looked all over the web and ask people at my workplace. no one could answer me. I could probably find the answer but a rough estimate will suffice.

If I have BCBS through my company. I pay 70 a month for a pretty good plan (Id guess based on past plans it would cost me 200 a month for a similar individual plan..28/M/never had any conditions or issues). The rest is covered by my company.

How much increase can I expect on my premium(rough percentage)?. Is my company forced to cover the increase or can they pass it on to employees if they choose?

BCBS could raise their premiums or the company could raise your contribution.

But they shouldn't except for a normal annual increase. You are likely already in a group plan so your age shouldn't have any bearing on what you pay.

For people who get insurance through larger companies or work for the government, the exchanges are just trying to duplicate what insurance companies have been doing for years with those entities. They are just going it on a much larger scale with the general public.

In large companies like that, in most cases, of you are 65 years old or 25 years old it doesn't matter. Everyone pays the same rate for whatever plan they choose.

But 65 year old employees will statistically have more claims than 25 year olds so the rate has to be enough to cover the insurance companies payouts to providers (and be profitable) for both age groups so the premium for everyone is calculated thusly.

Also people buying in bulk will often get discounts in order to obtain the mass customers.

The exchanges are trying to allow individuals to do the same. Large number of people buying into the same plan at a pretty much fixed rate. They are also lumping multiple providers into the exchange to create competition for business, which theoretically should help keep rates down.

But that is a long winded response that I am not sure even answered your question :lol:
