But people on here are so desperate to believe that MKG will be the starting SF (even though his offense is still putrid) that they think we will offer a max contract for a SF and then play him out of position.
They would never do anything to help their clients if they think they are guilty so this confuses ne

All that the story proves is that she did her job as an attorney to the best of her ability. Attorney's defend guilty clients every day...and they will use whatever legal manuevering possible to defend them. That is their JOB.
It's not addictive as far as I know... I was assuming the DUI was for alcohol, was it not? Either way, he does have his head up his ass... he could play football at a high level for the next 6-8 years, make $50 million plus, and then spend the rest of his life partying and goofing...
I think this guys issues go WAY deeper than addictions. He has no concept that there are consequences for his decisions and actions....probably reinforced his entire life. Too often great athletes are treated as special (that the rules do not apply to them) for a VERY young age.
Sad really that he is about to piss away an opportunity that most would do ANYTHING to have.
So anyone drafted at a position, even though they are moved to another, should always get paid as the first position, the one they played in college?
Of course athletes make a lot, but compared to what others get paid in the league with similar production (across all position) yeah, he should get more. Isn't that fair? Jimmy should take less than others that produce the same, because people are more poor? You wouldn't only be thinking about the $ either? When you could get hurt on your one year franchise tender and never get your payday? Of course you would. You wouldn't try to get that $5 mill? Seems like a lot to me. Those people making 1/10 would definitely go for that $5 mill haha.
He has NOT been moved to another position.
The fact is that the TE position is changing and evolving in the NFL. They are being split out wide, put in motion, etc....more than in the past. That is just the evolution of the position and the game.
You will need to file a quarter estimated tax payment.
In addition, the money is taxed where the service was provided....not where the check came from. However, if the work was provided (and thus earned in another state), you are required to claim the income in that state and pay taxes. You then claim a credit on your NC taxes for the amount paid in the other state.
I noticed that the Toddler Car Death thread was locked, but I did want to make one last response to the whole Cantrell comment and subesequent responses.
Did Cantrell make an incredibly dickish and insensitive remark? Yes
Did is upset me? Yes....and I lashed out at him.
Am I over it and have no ill will or feelings against Cantrell? Absolutely
Having received the response from Cantrell that I did, it did bring to light the fact that I have said some incredibly insulting, dickish, and insensitive things to varying posters lately....mainly CWG, Delhommey, and Panthro. For this, I do want to apologize to these individuals.
I may not agree with most of your political views, but the manner in which I have responded to them was out of line and unwarranted....and for those who know me personally, they ARE totally out of character. In attempts to be sarcastic, I missed the mark and became insulting and way out of line.
I have no ill will towards anyone on this site and am sure that the people I have insulted are caring, intelligent, and genuinelygood people. I would sit down and have a beer with any of you.
Panthro....I know you are a good man as I have met you on several occassions. CWG/Delhommey....I am sure that you are as I have been told as much by others that know you. If I am missing others, it is not meant as a slight.
Again, I am past the statements, have no ill will, and am actually glad that Cantrell played that card.....as it has opened my eyes to faults that I have too often displayed.
Poor wording aside he does have a point. When you relayed your story this was my initial thought as well. How could someone who has gone through such an experience still have the same world view you do. I would think you would in general show a bit more humility and empathy, Instead of your usual "you suck and your lazy if you don't make as much money as I do" diatribe.
I have tons of empathy and respect for people who bust their ass to improve their lot in life. The ones that I respond to negatively are those that do not do anything in their lives to create any meaningful marketable skillset.....yet, continuously complain that they do not have what others do. That everything that happens to them is the fault of the system, or society, etc....and never their own decisions.
If you want to goof off in school, not get an education, not get trade training, and end up working in fast food....that is your right and there is nothing wrong with you wanting to do that. But, do not bitch that you don't make more money. You made those choices and you have to live with their consequences.
Rather than sit around and bitch that it pays minimum wage, go do something about your skillset. Go take a few classes at the local CC in a trade (they are dirt cheap by the way). Rather, they would rather picket and complain about what they do not have.
Are some people born with a better hand? Yes
Is that always fair? No
But, there is always things that you can do yourself to improve that. Work hard...get an education...get trade training....do whatever it takes. However, too many just want to complain about it.
