This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

Why should we worry about the complexities of the model? by ndzippy
That's what the handsomely paid coaching staff should have to worry about. Some of these coaching staffs have 50+ members, and head coaches are making millions. I don't give a shit if their jobs get a little bit harder, especially if it means making life better for those who are most vulnerable/most taken advantage of (i.e., the players).
Twenty years ago, I'd have had a different perspective. But things have gotten so ridiculous since then that I've become an advocate for the players...screw the old men who use and abuse these kids to earn generational wealth.
