    Just get this **** done so we can start free agency and move on with our lives.

    I wonder how its going to affect Weddle and Floyd, we'll probably lose both.....although with a higher cap floor we might have to pay them.

    That would actually be an improvement for the players. From the sounds of it, this would eliminate non-funded silos that money can be set into.

    From what i've heard the owners want some securities on this cap amount in case the economy tanks again, which could be done with some good lawyering. I think we are on the cusp of a new CBA, thank god

    Talk of the CBA dominates the podcasts I listen to while I work. If its not the CBA its LeBron, if its not LeBron its baseball....and the Padres F'n suck so there is no enjoyment in that.

    who said baseball has to be all Padres? Go play a game, coach or become an Umpire.

    Sounds pretty simple to me. Get out & participate instead of living vicariously through professional athletes.

    I must be the only one on earth that does not give one shiits damn about any of these rich fukers and their petty panty protest. fuk them, I hope they don't come back, and every owner, player, and agent that represents them, looses every damn cent we the fans paid to make them rich beyond any of their pea brained imagination.

    Lets put 2 and 2 together. I'm complaining about the NFL lockout (like every NFL fan right now) and my podcasts being ruined by all this bullshit talk about it.....and his solution is to tell me to go out and become an umpire?

    Clearly the dots are not connecting.

    It'll be interesting to see how an increased salary floor affects AJ's strategy... I'm just hoping to God and Black Baby Jesus that he doesn't make up the difference by giving Clary a contract he doesn't deserve (which is basically anything more than reservist money). From there, I'd expect it's pretty much going to be a contest between Floyd and Weddle as to who agrees to what the team is willing to pay them first... thing is I expect the amount the team might have been willing to pay Floyd has probably gone down since the draft - and I was projecting him at Nate Burleson money at best prior to the draft.

    This also means that Siler, Oliver, and Hughes are all UFA's too, unless I'm mistaken (I could be wrong on Hughes). Thing is, the combined salaries of Rivers, Gates, and MM along with VJ on the franchise tender may well push us well over 25% of the salary floor with less than 1/10 of our roster accounted for. So I'm not so sure that "we'll have to spend money somewhere" fits the bill, other than the fact that we just had a lot more roster spots created.

    BASEBALL.

    Baseball is just not all about the Padres.

    Baseball is getting out on some sort of field and getting involved with it. Play it, coach it, ump it. do something with it. There is youth sports here in San Diego that goes year round. I am out on a basbeall field either coaching or Umpiring at least 125 games a a year. San Diego Adult Baseball League has over 150 teams playing year round, get out and play it.

    Uh...I know, thank you.

    I was talking about radio shows and podcasts though, they never speak about the Pads even when they are good, and now that they suck I have no interest in the MLB season...at all.

    Point being we want football back, I'm ready for this CBA crap to be over so we can start talking about football again. The only pro sport San Diego is even moderately relevant in right now.

    There will be plenty of football to watch either with or without the NFL and it doesn't matter to me.

    Really, who else have I labeled? It was your talent for PhotoShop led me to the conclusion. :lol: If your skin isn't completely transparent, and you don't drink 3 Mountain Dews a day as I suspected...then I am sorry for the unfair profiling.

    Yuk....... I hate Mountain Dew, and very rarely have soft drinks. I'll have a bourbon or scotch if you're buying. I'm an artist, not a nerd...... there is a difference. ;)

    I can't help being fair skinned, that's my Scottish, Irish, and Welsh genes doing.

    Fair enough...but have you ever in your life played "Magic" or "Dungeons and Dragons"? That's the definitive nerd question. :lol:

    I played D&D a few times, when I was young....... does that damn me for life? ;)

    I've never been to the Comic Con...... that probably hurts my chances to be a true nerd.
