FORUM POSTING RULES - Read before posting

Forum Rules.

(1) The guiding principle for posting in this forum is moderate yourselves.

(2) Don't write a post that attacks, impugns or denigrates another poster's character. There's an obvious difference between the language of humor and hateful, debased language. Know the difference and post accordingly.

(3) This is a Michigan sports forum. The forum welcomes posts from M's sports rivals. Talking smack, posting sass is what college sports rivalries are all about. Rules (1) and (2) above apply. If you don't want to view the posts of a rival talking smack or sassing, use the ignore feature in User Controls.

(4) This forum is about sharing thoughts, ideas and viewpoints about all sports, any number of subjects and issues, learning stuff from other posters and having fun. There are threads by subject matter within the forum for doing this. Keep the threads on point.

NB: The rules above are not intended to build a case to ban a poster. There are consequences for rule breaking as specified below. That's as far as it should go. Only the most egregious and persistent rule breaking would cause the moderators to consider a ban.

Due Process.

(1) The forum has 6 moderators. Jeff Buchanan, Jon, JD, Hannibal, Oracle, Entropy. None of them want to moderate adult posters who should know better. There may be posts that break the rules.

(2) Posters who, at the sole discretion of a moderator, break a rule will be given a warning post that will site one of the rules listed above as the reason for the deletion.

(3) If the rule breaking behavior continues, a moderator can remove an offending post and any ensuing post that whines about that action. If a moderator removes a post(s) the reason for the removal(s) will be posted with the removal notice that appears in the thread. This should be the end of it. Man up, take responsibility for breaking the rules. The forum moves on. If not, see below.

(4) A poster who has had a warning or a post(s) removed can certify a question by PM to any moderator about that action. Do not complain about the action or attempt to make your case in the forum/threads. Moderators shall do their best to address the question within 72h. At the end of 72h the majority opinion of the moderators responding will be the answer.

(5) Banning a poster for egregious and repeated rule breaking requires a unanimous vote to ban from all 6 moderators. We don't anticipate this will ever happen.

    From a fantasy site, pretty funny, and true, statement about Pryor's presser yesterday:

    Agent Drew Rosenhaus put on a performance straight out of Jerry Maguire, insisting Pryor is a first-round supplemental prospect, a high character player, and perhaps the most unique quarterback athlete the NFL has seen. Back here on Planet Earth, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reiterated that Pryor is seen as no more than a mid-round pick. Several GMs have told Mort that they want to be sure Pryor is willing to consider a move to a "Jermichael Finley-type" of tight end down the line if they're going to use a supplemental pick this year.

      Jake Long is ranked the #1 NFL offensive lineman by his peers.

        Not surprising. Jake is a monster. And to think we almost lost him in that fire before he even played a down for Michigan.

          He was only ranked a 3 star as a junior at Lapeer East HS. Even by time he signed with Michigan, he was only ranked a 4 star.

          Congratulations to Jake.

            Jake really grew into his frame. O-Linemen are somewhat hard to predict because so much of their future ability is tied to how they mature physically.

              Fun Fact of the day- The Patriots now have the longest steak in Boston without a championship.

                No city deserves that type of success. I'm envious.

                  Last weekend, my son Jamie and I had the opportunity to attend a CFL night game




                  A few players from the B10 that you may remember. Playing for Montreal #30 Dahrran Diedrick, RB from Nebraska 2002



                  Also playing for Montreal #69 Eric Wilson of Michigan 2000 at DT (left side of pic). For the Argos #56 Rob Murphy, OT from OSU 1999 (he is the one on the right side of the pic with the tattoo on his right arm).

                        The new rookie wage scale will limit No. 1 overall pick Cam Newton's contract to roughly $22 million over four years.

                        It will be a five-year contract, but the fifth season will be worth $14 million and won't be guaranteed. Obviously, it's a dramatic drop from No. 1 overall picks of years past. Newton's contract total will be reported at around $36 million across five years, less than half the worth of Sam Bradford's.


                        Nice to see the NFL adopting some sort of rookie scale. Teams were just getting hammered by being in the Top 10 and then having one of those picks "bust". Rookie salaries were getting ridiculous...on par with perennial all-star veterans. I guess Cam will still be able to help renovate a few churches, though.

                          Yup, Lions were especially hurt by getting locked in with duds in the top 10 picks; it hurt the Lions by not being able to spend to help the team in other areas. Even good players in the top 10 picks that don't end up being very good end up overpaid. This is something that needed done a long time ago... The 'value' of draft picks imo went up and made them more valuable; also teams that want to trade picks will have a much easier time.

                            I think the rookie pay scale is the right thing to do as well, for all the reasons mentioned above.

                              Yep, and they couldn't have started with a better #1 pick than Mr. Newton. Looks like he just took a pay cut.
