  1. I actually would do this. I don't think they will though. I like Beal. I have met him face to face several times regarding work deals. He's a good guy with an excellent family. He can win a championship with the right person next to him. Problem is, the Wiz are in no position cap wise to get the true complimentary player with him. Nor are they a big enough market that players will gravitate here. Beal needs a top notch 4 or 5 to play with, or a team with a mass amount of shooters. A PG like Westbrook (or Wall) doesn't really help his game. He could play with any PG. Westbrook has 5
  2. I've watched every Wizards game this year. Beal complains more that just about any player in the league. That was no foul. He slipped where Tatum had fallen on the layup. Tough luck, but the bad is really Scott Brooks being out-coached every night. He's not the worst coach in the league. But Stevens out-coached him big time, as do others. Especially in late game situations. Rumor is the Wizards spend less than 15 mins on D at practice and Brooks doesn't watch film. That's a bad combo. Beal and Westbrook back him, but the only other coach Beal has played for is Randy Whitman. I mean,
  3. They do not have to pay if it is solely 'solely for the benefit of the intern'. That is the legal definition of an unpaid internship. Different internships have different expectations. Where I ran HR years ago, we had both paid and unpaid. The unpaid was where an intern would essentially mimic an employee. So like in finance. Let's say our finance person is running a monthly report. The intern would also do it, but we never used their report. It was solely for the intern to learn a skill. We also had coders. So someone would write the code for an API, and the intern would also d
  4. My son did an unpaid internship this past summer. He learned a lot. By definition, the intern has to be the beneficiary of the relationship. And he was. He learned a lot and it will help him get a $150K+ job when he graduates. He didn't complain once about not getting paid, He and us know it's worth it in the long run. If unpaid internships didn't exist, companies wouldn't do anything. It's not like the company gets much out of a 19 year old unskilled worker that is likely to take a full time job elsewhere. Now, the paid internships are meant to result in a long term job. That be
  5. 9 years old at the time so psyched to see this and future lists. I remember being more into country at this age. Alabama, Oak RIdge Boys, John Denver. ha. No idea why. Gotta think there's gonna be a lot of Journey, Foreigner, Police, Hall/Oates, and REO on this list. Interested if Tim will put an Air Supply song on his list. 🤔 Does he have the guts to do it 🤣🤣
  6. There is zero chance Alex Smith is the starter in WAS. He should not be on anyones list. He's likely not to even be on the team. And Kyle Allen isn't signed yet. So Taylor Heinicke, despite the nice showing against TB, has to be in the bottom five. If they sign Kyle Allen, he's borderline bottom 5 too. Top 5: Mahomes, Rodgers, Wilson, Brady, Murray Bottom 5: Wentz, Hurts, Lock, Mischew, Stidham ... once WAS figures out if they actually have any QB, they will likely replace Wentz.
  7. If anything he was underutilized at VT. There were halves where Coach Fuente would inexplicably sit him out. Several games he had less than 3 carries in a half, yet he was by far their biggest weapon. As a VT fan it was frustrating. Maybe the coach felt the season was meaningless and didn't want to run him into the ground, but if not it was horrible coaching. As far as how he translates to the NFL, he does a lot of good running by using vision and setting up blocks. Basically sees the defense, then cuts and hits the hole hard. He gets to speed quickly with a nice burst. He does not
  8. My brother is about to retire from this stuff. He's gone from $30K in the game four years ago to a few million. Happy for him. He told us. I bought in a couple of years ago, but only enough to be in the game. A BTC, a bunch of ETH and a good bit of LINK. One would think it's been nice to watch it quintuple, but all I have is regret for not putting a lot more in. Meanwhile what I put in IBM and MSFT have really taken off 😠
  9. gotta tell ya, i've been around bball for 40 years. Never heard of Anta until I saw Caruso signed with them. A quick search shows Klay, Hayward and others on their payroll ... I assume through the Fila brand. 3rd largest sportswear company. Based in China. I did know many of their subsidiaries (salomon, arcteryx, fila, atomic.) Goes to show you can learn something new every day.
  10. I had two kids recruited, one for basketball and one for golf. Both got partial offers from mid tier academic schools. But with 4.4+ GPAs they decided to go to the better school. It's not like either of them were going to be professionals. The basketball player would have been lucky to play at all. I played two college sports, and quit one of them midway through freshman year. It's a lot of work even when you love it. Practice time is brutal on the grades and to a certain extent on your social life. So I totally supported their choice and it's worked out very well. I also coached AAU
  11. I think Patterson and Hebert are better RBs than Ekeler. But Ekeler is likely always gonna be a better receiver. So much depends on luck with these types of RBs. Does the coach utilize that role? What other RBs are on the team? Injuries ahead of them. etc.
  12. Good for him. He's still gonna be doing math. Counting up compound interest on his new salary Even if he doesn't make the full amount, it's >>> career salary as a math teacher. I don't think he or Allen are more than a backup or stopgap QB. Adequate starters if it's all there is, but not top 15 at all. It may be that's all you need to win this division. Heck, no matter what this years QB situation will be better than Smith and Haskins.
  13. Gardiner Minshew is gonna be on the trade block, and it wouldn't take more than a 3rd to get him. Whoever gets left out of the Stafford, Carr, Watson sweepstakes (if there really even is one) may make a move for him.
