In Topic: Do NFL Cheerleaders deserve minimum wage?

06 October 2014 - 02:32 PM

 

If the mascots make minimum wage, then the cheerleaders should qualify too. The bigger question is how the teams get away with classifying them as independent contractors instead of employees. By the IRS definition, you could make a strong case that they should be classified as employees.  

 

Yes, that's why the Raiders are paying out $1.5M. 

 

 

Good to hear!!!


In Topic: Is this sleazy or did I overreact?

Ratio about 6:1

 

People jumping on whinyness vs people discussing trade integrity.

I guess I get to be the first one to agree with OP.  An offer was made.  He verified that an offer was made.  He accepted the offer.  The offer was then rescinded.

 

If OP had made the offer, he would be on the hook as soon as it was accepted.

 

So, I would be sure to ask if the offer was iron-clad next time & I would make sure the rest of the league knows they  need to do the same.

In our league a trade needs to be proposed on the league site and then accepted to be considered official.  It must be a new concept to some people?  I don't fault the OP for be angry about how things worked out.  The problem is this is a game and to wreck long term relationships and resort to name calling is a pretty poor way of handling things.

 

 

I agree that it sounds whiny, OP comes off bad because of it, but it's tough to negotiate with someone who backs out citing the technicality that it wasn't  posted on the website.  When he asked, "Is this an offer/", he was verifying that it would be a done deal if he accepted.  EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT.

In Topic: How Would You Fix Traditional Season-Long FF?

02 October 2014 - 07:58 AM

No "fix" needed. 

 

Not interested in the gambling aspect of weekly stuff.  It may be "here to stay", but that doesn't affect how I enjoy my league.  BTW, it will peak, like online poker, when people realize they're losing consistently.
