League Pass Choice Locks

After last season, I finally decided to pay for league pass broadband (getting it on my Xbox helps). Obviously one of my five teams is our Bulls. What are other people's thoughts on who my...

Any labor lawyers in the room?

What confuses me about these legal wranglings is the status of the NFLPA. They decertified as a union by vote, so individual players could bring an anti-trust class action lawsuit against the NFL....

And the First Round Pick.. Is Nowhere to Be Found

In a previous fan post, T.O.E. implied that the Bulls management is incompetent based on the number of our draft picks since '99 that are currently on our roster. In a vacuum, only having 4 players...

Bulls Waive Roberson

32
[From the FanShots. Interesting note below about the timing of this move. It'd be strange if the Bulls felt they couldn't make a decision on Roberson until they saw him in Summer League -ed.] I don't think anyone expected him to contribute much if he made the team (especially with the Hunter resigning), but I'm curious about the timing of this. I thought I saw somewhere that his deal became guaranteed back on July 10th, which would have salary cap/luxury tax implications. Any capologists care to comment?

Sam Smith started it all?

Mark Cuban recently comments on his blog reaching its 5th anniversary. In this first post, Cuban outed our man Sam as the one sportwriter he doesn't like: "The majority of reporters and columnists are good people. There are a couple, no make that 1 Sam Smith of the Chicago Tribune who I can’t stand."

Should the "Tim Thomas treatment" be retired?

3

In a column talking about the likelihood that Starbury ends up in Boston, John Hollinger said "...He missed most of last season with ankle problems, and was Tinsleyed by the Knicks before he ever played a game this season." Up until this season, that expression used to be "he was Tim Thomas'd," in reference to how Tim was treated by the Bulls in his last stint here. However, with his return and Vinny's willingness to actually play him, is the "Tim Thomas treatment" no longer an applicable description?

I registered the domain name after today's game. I actually thought about it a year ago, but didn't pull the trigger. I have a simple frontpage up as a placeholder until I get down to dev'ing the site as a whole. Any suggestions, thoughts, or ideas from folks here?
