  1. All sent out. Anyone that wanted one got one. Check your mail. Awesomeness will be arriving to everyone by the end of the week.
  2. Bundling stuff up and putting it in my car to go mail stuff out. Last chance. Leaving in half an hour.
  3. The system is telling me yours is the in box that's full. Mine has plenty of room in it. Clean out a message or two and try again.
  4. Anyone else? Going to the post office in the morning . . . now is the time for the latecomers.
  5. Will hopefully do a mega mailing tomorrow. Anyone else want in???
  6. My Anarcy99 in box is full, so anyone new use this account instead.
  7. If my other inbox is full, PM here instead.
  8. As I remember it, Gronk was coming off of season ending back surgery. Whether that would be classified as upper back surgery or lower neck surgery is out of my pay grade.
  9. After watching Lebowski again, I forgot how similar the story was to Fargo. In both films, people with financial problems set up some sort of kidnapping and amateur criminals all around botch things up. The characters may be completely different, but the premise in each film is similar. Yet I loved Fargo and was ambivalent about Lebowski.
  10. And Edelman visited the Giants today.
  11. Terrell Owens seen practicing and working out with Tom Brady today at USC. I don't know what that means, if anything.
  12. The regular season is 5 months away. They could sign a FA. There are plenty of ex-Pats receivers out there (Lloyd, Branch, Edelman, Gaffney, Stallworth, Ocho Cinco, and Moss). Or they could draft someone. Or trade for someone. Or extend an offer to Sanders. Or make Hernandez a full time WR. Or they could line up Vereen as a wideout. So to answer the question, I highly doubt that their receiving corps is anything but a work in progress.
  13. With this thread getting resurrected and more praise and adulation, I decided to watch Lebowski again since it had been a few years since my last viewing. Sadly, I still don't get it. Maybe it's too hip for me, I don't know. The bowling alley scenes are amusing and the OVER THE LINE bit is classic (especially to those that have bowled in leagues before). But taken as a whole, I still don't see how some folks gush over this movie as one of the all time greatest comedies ever made.
  14. Yes, Holmes is on the Patriots practice squad. But practice squad players can be signed by any of the 32 NFL franchises. So the Patriots and any other team can sign Holmes if they liked what they saw. I don't know enough about Holmes to have an opinion on whether the Pats will put him on their 53-man roster or not.He 's under contract. Typically PS guys sign future contracts at end of year when rosters expandPractice squad guys can sign with any team if they get added to the new team's 53-man roster. I don't know the ins and outs of how that works, ie if the Pats have him until the season starts and no one can sign him until then. Maybe they can stash him on their 80-man roster until cut downs occur in training camp. But at some point if teams don't carry their practice squad guys on their season roster, they are the considered free agents.Per the CBA . . . Section 2. Signing With Other Clubs: (a) Any player under contract to a Club as a Practice Squad player shall be completely free to negotiate and sign a Player Contract with any Club at any time during the League Year, to serve as a player on any Club’s Active or Inactive List, and any Club is completely free to negotiate and sign such a Player Contract with such player, without penalty or restriction, including, but not limited to, Draft Choice Compensation between Clubs or First Refusal Rights of any kind, or any signing period, except that such player shall not be permitted to sign a Player Contract with another Club to serve as a Practice Squad player while under contract as a Practice Squad player. I have no idea why you are quoting the CBA to me. Once the season is over, there is no ,ore practice squad. Those players are either signed to future deals or released. At that time, they can also sign a future deal with someone else, but in Holmes case he signed with New England https://mobile.twitter.com/FieldYates/statuses/293475634674544640 I understand what you are saying and am not disputing that the Pats signed him to a futures contract. I am confused by what the Patriots web site says, as they list that Holmes was added to their practice squad on January 8, 2013. LinkAs I just cited (and you seemed to already know), if he really is on the Practice Squad he can sign with another team at any time. So either the Pats website is wrong and he is currently on their 80 man roster (likely) or he's on the Practice Squad and could be signed elsewhere at any time (less likely).
