Why does this site mean more than just football?

Posted 12-21-2008 at 11:42 PM by SapperSaint

One December 15th last year we lost a true friend to this website. JoeSam.

I remember that day very well, as do many of us here. I don't think back on that day as a total bad day. Because it reminds me just how important this site has been in my life for the past couple of years. It has gotten my through a war, and opened up countless new friendships.

Yes, I know, at times, I get too mushy for a football site, and I know Kevin will give me friendly grief for it....but...

Football 101:Salary Cap, Free Agency and Franchise Tags

Posted 12-18-2008 at 07:46 AM by hagan714

The NFL salary cap is calculated by the current CBA to be 59.5% of the total projected league revenue for the upcoming year. This number, divided by the number of teams, determines an individual team's maximum salary cap. For 2008, this was approximately $116 million per team. For 2009, a minimum 6% increase raised this number to at least $123 million. For all of you nerds out there, here is the actual mathematical calculation:

At Least We Aren't INSANE

Guys and Gals,

I know the Saints aren't going to the playoffs, and I know it has already rained on everyone's Superbowl Party before it started. But consider this, everyone should be thankful that they are not an insane screaming woman.

Watch this video, and God Bless Them Please...

'Delgo' Has Worst Release Opening Ever

Posted 12-16-2008 at 01:26 AM by Halo (Nose Bleed)

Don't feel too left out if you missed seeing the animated adventure movie "Delgo" this past weekend. No one did. In fact, the movie broke a record for having the worst opening ever for a film in wide release. "Delgo" earned a measly $511,920 this weekend on 2,160 screens, not even breaking the top ten. That's an average of $237 per screen for the three days. If you figure there were five screenings a day, and assume ticket prices are about $8, that comes out to two people in the theater per showing....

Donation Feature and other site suggestions.

Some members eventually like to donate to a website to help the cause, i have nothing against donating as long as it's not setup to only be monthly like some other sites "i wont mention:" are starting to do.
If this can help remove some of these Banner ad's eventually that would be great, a Donation button with a indicator of how much has been donated and how much need to be donated would be pretty cool..

This site seems to be ran like a real fan site and not like...
