    So unemployment ended, had to tap into some deeper savings/stocks to pay bills, .. was doing side work for friends company.. they happened to open an entry level packaging job like $12/hr deal, i figured with the side money for web work and that i could get by longer... applied, went through interviews, was obviously best candidate but also obviously over quanified to fill web orders and thing.. but i was willing.. they gave it to some young kid.. better fit for a job title that includes cleaning the bathooms as needed. No big deal.. kept talking web stuff, the two owners dont want to deal with website stuff, so after a few weeks of talking, one mentions they MAY have something for me.. they talk more..meanwhile i decide im in desprate mode, and apply for my old technician job i did 3+ years ago back, Sprint sold off the technicians to asurion, so new company same crap, less corporate crap, so whatever.. as i hit submit my friend calls me. and says they have a job for me... actually he fucked with me and said "hey man i talked to (other owner) and unnfortunetly(my heart sank, i was soo depressed for a few seconds) we have to offer you a job" so i got a job, salary, M-F, 8-5, with friends, at a good company, benefits, etc. I will be relaunching the website, creating a wholesale portal for the wholesale accounts to place orders directly online, integrating the retail store POS and inventory into the same system as website and wholesale site, and theyll be opening a second retail store as well. Once launched we will also be selling other companies products alongside our own. so everything sold at the two retail stores will be sold online. Huge project for a multimillion dollar company, im excited, get to do what i enjoy, to do what i have always tried to do on my own but without all the parts i dont want to do. i started last week, so today was my 8th day.. drive is a litttttle bit far, but nothing crazy, 35-55 minutes depending on traffic. i avoid downtown but go from southeast to west side of town, so cross traffic can be brutal, but they are doubling the hgihway currently that i take so in a year it will be 20 minutes faster. #employed.

    The issue here isn't if you agree with the Bengals or not. From one standpoint, the cap is very well managed. We rarely have any dead money of significance, and it seems like each year we have plenty of cap room to work with. The Bengals have never been in a Cowboys/Redskins position of starting the season with negative cap. If you're an accountant, you're loving this. From another standpoint, we have yet to reap any successes from this philosophy. If I told you your favorite NASCAR driver finished in the middle of the pack all year but he saved a ton of money on gas and oil changes so he's ready to be mediocre again next year.... Are you impressed? Are you excited about next year? If his crew chief tells you that buying all that carbon fiber is too expensive do you go "Ooooh, THIS is our year!" Mike Brown is a $2 bet kinda guy. When he has a great day he walks out of the track with $20 in his pocket, and on a bad day is down $10. He ventures little and gains little. Frankly, sports isn't a place for accountants. It's the realm of people who are willing to risk it all for a shot at glory. "Smart cap management" means nothing unless it goes hand-in-hand with success. I can put together a great household budget, but you're going to want to kill me after the 40th bowl of nothing but ramen. What Mike Brown via Hobson has done is sat in the car outside the track and said "Look, we're only betting $10, so don't get your hopes up. Also, we'll eat when we leave, The concessions here are crazy expensive. Don't even look at that f***ing cotton candy." Ummmm, wheeee? Who Dey? So, yeah, thanks for making sure we didn't expect anything too great right before Free Agency begins. Our hope firmly abandoned, there will be far less for you to crush.

    Just seems like a waste of time, why give reps and a roster space for a 31 year old player that you know isn't going to be apart of the game day roster? Normally with players of his age they are confirmed starters that are going to be big time contributors, not an offseason flyer that probably won't make it to week 4 of the preseason. I would prefer the Bengals round out their roster with young guys that would be good practice squad players that need some development vs. a vet that would the 4th or 5th option at best.

    The nostalgic attraction of Bengals fans to has-been and never-was players is astounding. The guy has had one decent season in the league and just got cut by the Cleveland Browns. WTF would we want the guy for? I can only hope Mike Brown isn't reading the board again this offseason for his scouting advice.
