  2. Agree on a pitch clock & don't automatically grant time to batters to step out & spend 45 seconds adjusting every piece of gear on their body. The 3 batter rule is moronic.
  3. Mike-- it's the $$ .... though now the TFOs have moved up in price so we will see how that plays out. Just wish they had kept the TICR around. I had an older (5 years) 5wt Clearwater -- not that impressed by it, but as has been said, it's an individual thing.
  4. e auction site - bunch out there in mid 200's
  5. A bit late but echo 3 S are on closeout -- really nice 8wt's for the salt. Scott Tidals are very nice as the St. Croix's Legend Elite's - all better than the BVK, IMO. Colton's Tradewinds XS too.
  6. Class act for sure... double thumbs up to the OP & FWW.
  7. When it comes to the student debt problem it really escalated when the law was changed (1986 or so) so that one can not discharge student debt via bankruptcy. That gave lending institutions & colleges the green light to lend away & raise tuitions willy nilly. It's a free country & if you choose to do something stupid it should be on you. The public or the govt. should not be on the hook to bail you out as long as there was no deceit/ fraud.
  8. take it? You will have no guns soon. Don't worry CT is an even worse position.
  9. Yep & with Hick's being somewhat of an injury risk they will probably keep Wade instead of both. I believe you mentioned that earlier in this thread.
  10. You really never know when you trade for prospects, even "can't miss" ones.
  11. Well one year they had Plaxico which no one could cover on that corner route in the end zone. Eli had 1 excellent year & another excellent 1/2 year along with very good defenses. Funny thing every one forgets they had a good chance of getting a 3rd if Plaxico did not shoot himself in that night club. Except for those years & maybe 1 more - Eli is really nothing more than a middle of the road QB that does not get hurt.
  12. Just heard that.. wow a real team player for sure
  13. Yea .. one step forward & two back.
  14. and I am an immigrant & US citizen.
  15. Sure . keep letting in people who basically do not believe in the Constitution & American values. I keep bringing Teddy Roosevelt's speech from 1907 as a simple solution for our immigration issues: Theodore Roosevelt’s ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907. “In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American … There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag … We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language … and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.” Theodore Roosevelt 1907 Pretty clear to me ...
